Weekend Roundup – Shopping Haul Keeps

Oh the Holiday Season is upon us.  Bring on the holiday parties, food and fashion.  With all this extra eating I’ll definitely need to be hitting up as many classes as I can!  Linking up with Biana and Meghan!

Thursday night we went to a holiday party for one of Mark’s friends.  This necklace from Rocksbox has been worn on such repeat. It dresses up this black dress that I had worn to work with a blazer over it.  Add some black tights, heels, this necklace and instantly you have day to night outfit change.  The designer is Urban Gem.  I have been searching for it on my own but looks like it is exclusive to Rocksbox?  I really love it and have considered keeping it.

Friday after work I finally set some time aside for a manicure and pedicure.  I almost didn’t stay for the Pedicure because I was thinking about all the things I could be doing but I’m really glad I stayed for it.  I am so obsessed with this color.  I got talked into a gel manicure by the sheer fact I can’t be worrying about my nail for the next two weeks.

I then came home to the rest of my online purchases.  I mean it’s like Christmas all the time right?  ;-)

It wouldn’t be a Friday night without one of these

Saturday we went to our favorite Thai restaurant called Nori Thai out by the beach.  Every year they have Monks come and bless the restaurant and all the patrons.  I really look forward to it because the Monks take the time to give their wisdom and keys to happiness.  It is such a good reminder about things that matter and don’t matter.  Also about never speaking ill and giving as much as you can to others.

They bless this string and then tie it around your wrist. It is suppose to bring you luck and fortune……I’d say last year it definitely gave me good luck!

Saturday night we went to Roux with another one of our friends.  The cornbread, beignets, oysters and gumbo was delicious.  Necklace on repeat…..wasn’t kidding.

Sunday was spent doing some massive returns from my latest online shopping.  Target has the best dollar finds right now.  Time to stock up on giftbags and obsessed with the little sticky notes.

Hi my name is Amanda and I have a problem.  It is called buying way too many shrugs but in Florida you always need one of two on handy for all the places with over zealous air conditioning.  I love this one it has a bit of sparkle to it, so easy to dress up any holiday outfit.  I bought it in both colors.

Metallic Cardigan comes in Gold and Silver

I also found this little beauty.  Want to talk about the most perfect holiday dress!  Make sure you check Forever21 every day leading up to Black Friday they have pretty sweet daily deals.

Red Lace Dress

It looks so pretty with that statement necklace or jazzed up with this gold belt.  I got it in an XSmall for reference it ran a tiny bit big.

Gold Belt

A few of my favorites from my latest online haul.  This is the best layering long sleeve shirt.  It is soft and has a really great shape to it.  Definitely grabbing a few more of these in different colors.

Sunday night cooked up these bad boys.
This weekend was a productive one!  I sent out all the deposits for the rest of our vendors.  I think I can say we have everyone nailed down.  It is such an amazing feeling.  I am really looking forward to this holiday week I really need some relaxation!  This week we are meeting with our jeweler to pick out out our bands and wedding gifts.  I am so excited!
Wish me luck I’m teaching 3 Barre classes today!  Trying to get everything done so I can take off the rest of the week.  Check back tomorrow I have all my Black Friday picks ironed out for you and on Wednesday I will be celebrating my blogs anniversary with a really exciting giveaway you don’t want to miss!  xoxoxo

    hot damn girl that red lace dress looks amazing on you! love it. thats so cool about the monks, hope the next year is as full of luck as the past year for you ;)

  24. Julia says:

    LOVE that red lace dress! And the shrug, so cute and cozy looking! I agree about AC in Florida, I always try to have a sweater handy, it gets ridiculously cold in some of these places!

  25. I’m swooning over the red dress! perfection!! and the necklace. And the nails. Okay, I’m stopping now.

  26. I bow to your online shopping finds! That red dress is beautiful!
    I got this killer black wool dress at Old Navy on Sunday – I’ll post a pic when I wear it. It’s going to be gorgeous with some patterned tights and heels!

    I love the look of the Roux restaurant! Very neat!

    Happy Monday!

  27. That red dress is swoonworthy and I love your nail colour so much :) Happy Monday. xoxo

  28. Teaching 3 classes today, oh my! That restaurant looks awesome, what a neat experience! Loving your nail color too :)

  29. I love both of those dresses, that necklace, the belt! So cute!!!!

    I love the monks at the restaurant. How fun and special! I hope you have a fabulous week!!

  30. How cool about those monks! I would totally go to that, too. Man, all of my BFF’s have such luck at Forever 21 and I never ever do! I’m like between a size small and a medium (because of my height) and even if I do find something cute, it never quite fits right. That red dress is amazeballs on you though. No matter, Henry would just cover me in drool and boogers the second I put something like that on, lol!

  31. What a beautiful necklace! I keep seeing people’s items from Rocksbox and I wish so badly they shipped to Canada! I love statement jewelry but I feel like most of the time it’s a limited engagement piece if you know what I mean. Having a steady flow would be so unnecessary but awesome!

  32. Love all of your finds! That necklace and red holiday dress are perfect! And that gel polish looks great as well- the perfect fall color!

  33. That necklace is so pretty! I love that red dress-so perfect for a holiday party. Looks like you had a great weekend! :)

  34. Damn girl! You’ve been on a roll lately being all productive and stuff! How fun to be checking more things off for the wedding and then to go pick out bands and gifts this week! Exciting stuff! I love love love that pink lacy dress! It’s so pretty! I also love that rocksbox necklace! I would be wearing it on repeat too!

  35. My front porch looked the same way this morning with all of the packages!! Makes a Monday so much better! Loving all of your shopping pics… I feel like Forever 21 is killing it right now, I spent way too much money there on Saturday!!

  36. Wow, the red dress totally looks like a Joie one I found for a steal! Nice work at F21. Want that belt now that you rocked it. Please send me burger leftovers next Friday, k? Drooling.

  37. Erin LFF says:

    Thanks to linking to all those dresses! I have a zillion holiday events/parties coming up and literally NOTHING to wear to any of them so I’ve started looking! :)

  38. Love the nail polish and the red dress. Great keep items! Target gets me every time.

  39. Zelle B. says:

    That nail polish is just gorgeous! And your ring — in love! Loving all of your dresses!
    xo Southern Style

  40. There is NOTHING better than coming home to packages by the door! NOTHHHINNNNNGG!

  41. Three barre classes, dang! I’m heading to Pilates Fusion in a bit so will definitely be thinking of you and the burn! =)

    Loving all of these outfits and I’m still trying to figure out how you stay in such great shape with all of the amazing food you enjoy! xo

  42. LOVE that red dress!!! It looks killer on you!! Your new necklace would look good with it too. I have a similar one from Bauble Bar and I wear it all of the time. That nail color is fab too. I love how you went to a restaurant by the beach too. So jealous!! It snowed here today. Sigh.

  43. Miche says:

    Love the purple nails! Gel is so the way to go these days!
