Hoping to squeeze in a visit to my favorite tree this weekend!

Merry early Christmas from Beyonce today!  She surprised the entire industry.

Mindy Kaling is always good for a guaranteed laugh, this was no exception.

Can’t wait to try this guac recipe!

What an inspiring husband :)

The internet and texting have ruined spelling…I see far too many homophones misused everyday.

Save on Shopping to Help Save a Puppy

As I mentioned in this previous post, my old roommate opened the fabulous Lola Accessory Boutique in Saratoga Springs. Megan and I both rescued our dogs and it was absolutely the way to go. With the holidays just around the corner there is no better gift than some sparkling jewels. Today we are so excited to have teamed up with Lola and Poor Paws Rescue to bring you holiday savings as well as the chance to give back to a great cause. For any purchase between now and 11/30, our readers will receive 10% off their entire purchase and Lola will also donate 10% to Poor Paws to help them rescue even more dogs and find them a forever home!

Use the code SELECTIONS10 at checkout and happy shopping!

Friday Favorites

On the world wide web, I come across countless articles, videos, photos and sales every week.  Some are worth sharing and others…well they’re not.  To share some favorite links from the week along with some upcoming sales to plan your weekend shopping, we are beginning a new series on Fridays.

Most Loved Links of the Week:

Lena Dunham interviews Mindy Kaling in this hilarious article

Jenna Lyons (J.Crew God) shares her 10 fashion commandments and why she thinks trend is a dirty word

If you aren’t already following @aliemartell on Twitter, you should go do that. Right now.  She writes for Cosmo and always has the best tweets and shared links.  Hudson even got a shout out this week!

Who doesn’t love a Friends themed Buzzfeed?  This one got me so excited to be home soon for Thanksgiving!

It seems like every time I go on Facebook these days someone is engaged, married or pregnant.  I’m sure you’ve an example of each one of the 5 most Annoying Facebook Engagement announcements.  (Apologies if you did one of these)

Our mom hated Abercrombie when I was a teenager, I don’t think it was around for Erin and Meaghan, was it?  She would’ve hated it for you guys too.  It was loud, had an overwhelming cologne smell and the clothes were way overpriced.    The CEO also happens to be a jerk.  Check out why and thanks mom, you really do always know best!

Damsel in Dior is one of my all time favorite blogs!  Her style and taste are impeccable and her holiday gift guide is a must read; I’ve already picked several things for people on my list.

I was on Nike’s site the other day checking out some dunks because I love mine and they are really killing it with woman’s shoes.  I want these, these and winter boots, yes please!

J.Crew is currently having a sale with an additional sale.  40% already markdown prices and even better if you have a student or teacher ID you get 15% more on top of that.  I stopped in yesterday and picked up this gorgeous jeweled sweater in gray and this striped sweater with the blue back.  I also love this, this and this!  I spotted my favorite boots this fall on sale in store for $199 yesterday.  They are still full price online but an incredible deal with the discount.  Check your local store! (I should never be allowed near a J.Crew store or site during these sales!)

Happy Reading and TGIF!

Maxxinista Finds

20130616-114327.jpg

I’ve always been a fan of TJ Maxx and Marshall’s but never stopped by their jewelry counters. A couple months back Kim, from Penny Pincher Fashion , posted a picture on Instagram of an incredible necklace that she had found at TJ with the hashtag #maxxinista. After scrolling through other people’s great jewelry finds, I made it a point to look next time I was in a store. While it is definitely hit or miss because every store carries different merchandise, I have found some gorge pieces at maxxinista prices. I guess all those commercials they air constantly are paying off (and helping me save at the same time!) Have you found any great pieces?

Love the tortoise stones!

This reminded me of the J.Crew cluster with orange accents!

Head to Toe

20130226-192641.jpg

As I looked down while walking yesterday, I realized I was in head to toe J.Crew…most of my jewelry included. I wish I could say that this is not a common occurrence but that would be false. With classic styles, great fit and fabulous jewelry, J.Crew is my go-to, número uno choice of store. The always occurring sales, with additional markdowns AND a student/teacher ID discount of an additional 15% off doesn’t hurt either! Thanks to a recent sale with additional 50% then my 15%, I snagged these pink leather flats for just $21 down from over $140 retail! I am a sucker for a sale and that’s what created today’s look along with the majority of my wardrobe.

Chambray Shirt

Polka Dot Pants (on sale in store)

Flats (sold out, similar here)

Coat, last winter.
