Recent Favorite Purchases

Hello, lovelies! I hope that you all have been well! I'm not sure about you guys, but recently it's been so cold where I live. It's been so interesting because this is the type of weather that I was desperately trying to will into existence by wearing heavy layers and thick sweaters during autumn. While it seems that the manifestation process may have been successful, apparently there was a 2-3 month waiting period! Has it been chilly where you live?

Today I have an updated collection of some of my recent favorite purchases. I hope you enjoy reading and perhaps find something of interest for you, as well! 


I've been absolutely loving this black and white plaid poncho from Pink Lily! It's so comfy to wear and I adore the aesthetic of it. Speaking of which, this leopard print cardigan is so on trend right now! In addition to the style factor, it is very cozy and warm which has been perfect for the weather recently. I'm also getting a lot of use out of this ribbed tank top by A New Day. You can't go wrong with a basic layering piece!

Bags & Accessories

So my big ticket item and probably favorite recent purchase is the Kira Chevron Pouch by Tory Burch! I was on the hunt for a clutch bag that was large enough to carry my daily necessities but that was still travel friendly. Needless to say, this bag was exactly what I was looking for! I've also been getting a lot of use out of this stainless steel roman numerals ring - in fact, I'm wearing it as I type! I have larger hands so I was super happy to find it in my size, and it hasn't turned my finger green at all (which is a huge plus). Additionally, I've been trying my hand at digital artwork recently, so this pink stylus pen has been super helpful during that process. It connects perfectly to my iPhone and draws very smoothly.

Kitchen & Dining

I don't know if you guys have tried any products from Jordan's Skinny Syrups, but I am obsessed! I am especially loving this syrup called 'Mermaid' from the same brand. It is a coconut and pineapple infused flavor that gives off the best tropical vacation vibes. Plus, it is sugar free, carb free, and zero calorie! Last, but certainly not least, this animal print mug from Pink Lily has been a major fave recently! It goes perfectly with my style and is right up my alley in terms of design. I love the pink lid!
