Feeling Nautical

With hopes of ushering in spring (come on Punxsutawney Phil!), I'm feeling a bit nautical today. It's definitely a mind thing, as a bleak weather forecast is looming on the horizon for my area. With thoughts of blue skies and a warm breeze, I assembled a group sure to get you in a "spring state of mind." I ordered the sequinned anchor top from Old Navy....I've wanted one of those for a couple of years now. I did get an additional 25% off the clearance price, which really makes it a steal. I also received an email from them this morning stating that there's an additional 40% off select new items, in-store. Happy shopping!

The Samsung Galaxy Note II

I'd been shopping around for a new phone for some time now. With so many choices, and many comparisons, I choose the Samsung Galaxy Note II from AT&T. I received it yesterday and am so in love! The 5.5 inch screen was a big selling point for me. While it may appear huge, it's actually pretty lightweight and easy to handle with one hand.

It boasts so many cool features! One is the S pen. You can draw with it, sign your name to emails, write in appointments and special dates on a calendar, and a whole lot more! Another feature that's just fun, is S Voice. You can make queries such as "how high is Mount Everest?" and it will speak the answer back to you. If it's unable to answer the question, it will let know and route to a list of searches where you will find your answer.  I also looked at the Galaxy Note III, but found that this one will work best for my needs.

Well, I'm off to do some more discovering, have a great day all!

The Premium Leather Collection

Forever 21's new leather collection stacks up pretty well when compared to similar styles. I especially like the cutout booties. Though you really can't tell from the picture, style number seven boasts a cutout heel, much like some of Alexander Wang's offerings. I must say, I'm impressed!





$59.80 (love, love, love!)
