My birthday is in nine days. Do you know how I know this? Because it’s on my driver’s license. But also because the cheerful customer service guy who helped me cancel my health insurance over the phone (I’m joining my contract company’s plan) told me so. This is the difference between me turning 37 and me turning 26. As an almost 37-year-old, I proactively called to cancel my insurance so I wouldn’t have to pay double premiums. As an almost 26-year-old, I got a tattoo of a mustache on my finger from Bubba at Elm Street Tattoo in Dallas after having a shot of Tequila at Reno’s Chop Shop Saloon down the street. Pretty happy about both of these decisions. Annnyhoo, while perusing one of my favorite SERIOUSLY FUN online shops—BAN.DO—I realized I needed a lot of SERIOUSLY FUN stuff & things in my 37th year of life. I thought I’d create a post of my current favorites and send them to my boyfriend share them with y’all. Take a look and let me know your favorites in the comments! (It’s the roller skates, I just know it.)
There’s this thing that happens when I walk into Anthropologie. Joy overcomes me. All the colors. All the fabrics. All the textures. ALL OF THE DRESSES. A warm and fuzzy feeling runs up my body from my toes to my forehead. Then before I know it, I’m spinning through the store singing the main song from the movie Beaches at the tops of my lungs while the shop manager picks up the phone to call the mall police and women pick up their small children and back out of the store slowly. Ahem. Imagine my delight this morning when an email hit my inbox that read 25% off all dresses from Anthropologie. Take a look at my favorites below, then head over to the Anthropologie site or store to choose your own.
I wanted to say hi in the meantime. Hi! I also wanted to share a few fancy items I picked up at T.J. Maxx before the trip. I took a look at my wardrobe and realized I needed to stock up on some new duds. Sigh. My weight has been fluctuating all over the place and it seems I’m a little too big for my britches these days. (What’s new, AMIRITE LADIES?)
I headed to T.J. Maxx because it’s my favorite place to find cute, inexpensive and unique items. Check out my real-life finds I bought and packed for the the trip below, then keep scrolling for a few other Hawaii-approved items that caught my eye on the T.J. Maxx website. Oh, and P.S… Follow along on my Instagram today and tomorrow (AND FOREVER OR ELSE) because Scott and I are headed to Disneyland to celebrate his birthday. AHHH! I KNOW! I’VE NEVER BEEN!
