Remember the Social Dress Shop giveaway I hosted a few weeks ago?  Well Sarah was nice enough to help hook me up with this fabulous number.  I had never heard of the brand Annie Griffin before but now its a new favorite of mine.  How fabulous is this dress??  I wore it to two holiday parties last week.  I am obsessed, there are still a few left HERE.


Newest glass obsession, these fabulous etched stemless wine glasses from Anthro.  They make me so happy while sipping my wine.  They are even more gorgeous in person it is hard to see the detail in pictures.


These are my new favorite snack.  These crackers are paper thin and addictive.  They don’t have many calories so you snack without the guilt.  I tried the double cheese flavor and loved them.  I found mine at Publix.  They are great with cheese!


J.Crew has done it again, I have found yet another blouse I need for my closet.  I want the Cobalt blue version such a great color on everyone!


I have a real weakness for fabulous smelling candles and these are my new favorites.  I smelled the Blue volcano one burning at the Anthropologie store opening and knew I had to have one.  The Aloha Orchard also smells amazing.  They won’t break the bank at $14 and they make such cute gifts.


Ever since reading Erin Gates Best of Beauty List I have convinced myself I need every product on there.  First I want to try this eye shadow palette.  I have used my Naked by Urban Decay Palette (which I love) for so long but I am ready for something new and these colors look perfect.  Great neutrals for anyone.

    So many things I'm loving about this post. First, the JCrew blouse in the garnet color! Love! And those Anthro tumblers..definitely just added those to my registry. And speaking of the Anthro candles, I went in there on Sunday and am now obsessed with the Santiago Huckleberry scent. So yummy.

    I was looking at the same eye shadow the other day at bloomies but deiced not to buy it because I own too many shadows that I need an intervention.

  12. That blouse is sooooo cute!! I wouldn't be able to wear it until summer though. Maybe I will stalk it until it goes on sale!
