Five Recent Purchases

I haven’t done a five on Friday in awhile and I thought I would join up today. This is one of those weeks were I just happen to have purchased a lot of random items. I love to see what other people buy and so I thought I would share five items I purchased this week. As a disclaimer, I don’t shop like this every week.


 Kenneth Cole Boots

I was at Von Maur early in the week and I noticed some Kenneth Cole brown boots in the sale area that I had considered getting Elin in the fall. I passed on them earlier but to my surprise, the $50 boots were on clearance for $12! I thought the price was a mistake and that they must have marked them wrong but when I asked the clerk he said they weren’t! Since brown boots like that won’t go out of style any time soon, I made sure to get some in Elin’s size for next fall/winter.




West Elm Blanket

Another deal I came across this week that I could not pass up was this beautiful ivory throw blanket. I need another blanket like I need a hole in the head, but I love this blanket and….wait for it……it was normally $100 marked down to $24.99! Say what?!?! It has sequins! I think it’s just to die for. Doesn’t everyone need a sequin blanket in their life? I went to find this online and sadly it’s not longer on line, but perhaps still available in stores.




Valentine Chairbacker

I don’t have a lot of Valentine’s decor around the house, so I decided rather late in the season to buy this chairbacker. It’s adorable and I don’t know why I didn’t order one sooner. Bonus: they went on sale this week. Sadly, I bought mine right before they did. I guess you win some and lose some.



Kendra Scott Earrings

I love Kendra Scott earrings and I checked out their site and saw they had their Spring line out. I had to get this rose quartz  color. However, I love so many of the spring colors that are out!



YSL Tint and Oil

No shopping trip to the mall is complete without a Sephora run and somehow I can’t leave without finding something amazing and life changing. This lip product is seriously like nothing I have ever tried before. It looks like a lipgloss on but is an oil and, although that sounds weird, it feels very moisturizing on. But the best part is it leaves a stain that seriously lasts forever! I only bought one in the Peach Me Love color, but I think I love it so much that I will purchase another for sure.



  1. Lloooooove that blanket! It’s gorgeous!

    Thankfully we dont have sephora or I’d do serious damage every time I went too. That lip oil sounds awesome though!

  2. Oh my gosh!! Those boots! That blanket! You found some AMAZING and cuuuuuute scores!

  3. LOVE those earrings and kind of hate that I saw them…. because now I need them asap! 🙂 And that throw blanket is perfect. So glad you linked up with us today!! Happy weekend!

  4. That blanket! I only wish that Thailand was cooler so that I would have a need for the blanket, but if I ever found a beautiful sequined blanket, it would have to be mine.
