One thing about me, that you may have noticed throughout my blog is that I don't talk about myself or my style very much. The reason behind that is, I HAVE NO STYLE. Honestly, last Christmas I bought three black dresses, 3 pairs of leggings, and one over sized open sweater, and they lasted me all year long. I wear the dresses with leggings on cold days, and lose the leggings and wear the dresses on warm days. Done and done. My shoe collection includes black flip flops from Old Navy, Skechers for walking, and Uggs for really cold days. That is all.
A big part of being a stay at home mom is that I am sacrificing a second income, so to be very technical, I don't have a budget to buy things for myself. When you have two little girls that just started school and are constantly growing, the clothes budget really does go to them. I am fine with that.
So.. the husband said to me, "I have no idea what to get you for Christmas. I mean, I can buy you something, and you can just return it for something you really want." So, although I told him that we are skipping present buying this year, I put together a little idea board of stuff that I do like, and would not return if it were given to me.
I used to be a bag hag, before I ended up being a diaper bag hag? So, I really love hobo's and over sized, over the shoulder bags, like the brown one from Mossimo. I have also loved Hello Kitty since I was a very little girl, really as long as I can remember, so it is no surprise that I added a Hello Kitty bag and wallet from Kohls.
How cool would a at home Gel Manicure be? Sephora by O.P.I has gelshine and I would love to have this, so I could do my own gel mani's at home.
One thing I would love to budget for this upcoming year is a bedroom/office section makeover, so I added a dresser because mine is literally falling apart. Haha! Oh, and those vinyl decorative frames from Jonathan Adler are so cool. I am kind of in love with them!
Well, there it is. Just some cool stuff I'm into and would not return if they were given to me. What do you think about my picks?
