Living the Lilly Pulitzer Dream

Yesterday I was wrapping up a report at the office and got this text from my sister: 


And basically, I was like this : 


BTW, Target need to bring back the crazy lady Black Friday commercials, she's my spirit animal; I even have a giant pearl necklace just like hers. 

Y'all know MandySue loves Target collaborations, and you certainly know my love for Lilly Pulitzer. So this is basically a dream come true. I'm not a regular on Instagram but it looked like that's where most of the news was being posted, so the rest of my night was spent insta-stalking and discussing the 411 in some lilly Facebook groups . For those of you not obsessed with every detail like me here's some basic info: 

What: 250 items in Ladies and kids clothing and accessories, beauty and home goods including beach / patio items. 
When: April 19th 
Where: target stores nationwide and online 
How much: $2 to $150 with 200 items under $30! 
Why: IT'S LILLY!!!!!

Based on the pictures I've seen from the swanky NYC announcement party this collection looks fab! It reminds me of the Missoni collection in that its staying pretty true to the brand style and offering the iconic look. Here's a few I grabbed to share. 

To add to my lilly scarf hoard: 

For a night on the town: 


Or a night in: 




Of course, the clothes are really cute. And for the first time for a designer collaboration they will be available in plus sizes! 


The accessories are really cute too! 


And of course on my must have list, teacups!!! (On the far right) 


These cups even have lilly quotes on the inside, adorable! 


So yes , I am pumped and for the most part so is the rest of the lilly community. If you've ever been curious about lilly but found the price point too high I really recommend checking this out.  

As more news becomes available I'll be sure to update. For now I plan on chilling outside my Target before it opens on the release date and when it gets closer to the date will probably make some friendly in store inquiries about how much we're expected to get in Memphis and where the products will be throughout the store. 

So tell me, what's your must have of the collection?

Saying Goodbye

If we're friends on Facebook than you might have picked up on why I didn't blog last week - my grandmother passed away last Wednesday. I know I said I want to keep this blog focused on specific topics and less emotional one but the reality is I write it and while I have a whole list of topics I had planned on blogging last week and this week I feel like it's just not right. I still have a few "personal" posts up - my one about being motherless and childless had some readership over the past week being that Sunday was Mother's Day - and today I'm going to add one more personal post. As y'all know my husband and I are moving in June and I'm so glad that on our last "social" day together (we saw her several days in the hospital before she passed) we got to show my Grandma our new house. Our current condo isn't very wheelchair friendly so for the past few years we have been going out to eat on holidays and we were really excited to hos…

Hello Fresh Review

One problem with our last house was that the kitchen was a little small, but with our new kitchen we really have no excuse to not cook at home. To start us off on the right foot I started a Hello Fresh subscription.

Subscribers get to select from 8 meals on the weekly menu and can get two or four portions of each meal and 3, 4 or 5 meals per box. We get 4 meals and the cost of the box is $10 / portion / meal - so $80. Each menu also features one premium meal  for an extra $5 / portion.
For our first box I'm sharing step by step with two meals here because I don't think just showing one gives a fair overview of the box. Each box comes with the meat individually packaged, the ingredients per meal all in one brown bag and a recipe card that shows pictures, lists out materials needed and provides step by step instructions. It seems like all the meals involve six steps.

The first meal we made was a fish dish.

The first step was to roast the potatoes with oil in the oven.

Wardrobe Wednesday - Currently Craving

Although my clothing is mostly unpacked and hanging in the closet I still have all my shoes and accessories in boxes and although I purchased a few items in May as part of my Wardrobe Makeover blogging about them is going to have to wait another week. Today though instead of talking about what I have bought I thought I'd share a few items that I'd like to buy.
Society Plus Whimsy Bow Skirt $52.79 I love this skirt so much, which also comes in blush BTW, and I pretty much want to copy the entire look here. This skirt is named after the Whimsy and Wonder blog and the bow and length really matches my style. I feel like I already have a blush skirt so I should get the purple but I also feel like purple is better in fall and winter so I should wait to purchase. Sam Edelman Yumi Heeled Sandal $120 Mules are really in style right now and trend reports indicate this will carry into the fall. I had a nude pump on my wardrobe wish list for the year and I've yet to find one so I tho…

Sephora Play The Iconic Edition

In addition to my regular Play box this month I also received a special edition box exclusively available to Rouge VIB members for $20
This bag features six high end iconic beauty items and a style book. I got it mostly out of curiosity to try the products inside. Here's what's included: La Mer - The Moisturizing Soft Cream $170
This is one of the most famous (and expensive) skin creams in the world. It certainly smells nice and makes the skin feel soft and smooth. For the price point though I'd have to give the full sample jar a try to make a decision because $170 per ounce is a lot of money and I do like the moisturizer I use currently.
Guerlain Radiance Face Primer $74
Ok, so here's where I have a problem with this product - if I'm using an expensive moisturizer to give me "natural radiance" than why do I need a $74 primer to give me radiance? This goes on very smooth and does give a nice soft radiance but I feel like there are other products out there…

Sephora Play June 2017

This month's Sephora Play theme is all about summer and beauty products for summer. Here's what's inside my box this month:




VERB Sea Spray $7
This has a really nice scent to it but my hair is super straight and fine so I don't really have a use for a texturizing spray.

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk $10
Although I don't usually use dry shampoo I certainly don't mind receiving this - my scalp is pretty oily so sometimes in the summer I don't feel clean all day so this is great to stick in my purse for busy days when I feel like I need a little refresh.

Coola Makeup Setting Spray $36
On one hand I love that it's a makeup setting spray with SPF, on the other is smells like alcohol and sunblock (which is pretty much how most spray on sunblocks smell) At $36 I doubt I will be purchasing this product in the future.

Ka t Von D Liquid Lipstick $20
I really like the color and the pigmentation  and the formula is really nice - I really hate when lip products fe…
