Sept 1: Nautical {perfect for Summer sailing away!}

I can't believe it is September today! 
This summer flew by! 

That means it is time to start the pattern challenge!
Today's pattern is "Nautical":

Makeup: face: Tarte "Rainforest after dark" palette, eyes- Too Faced Romantic Eye palette, NYX "Enchanting Jade" glam shadow stick, eyeliner Elite Paris matt liner in "Matt Brown", lips- NYX butter gloss in "Apple Strudel" via ipsy

Also thought a red, white and blue mani was in order for Labor Day & back to school mani monday!
my school's color is red =)
I went with Essie's "forever yummy" & "on a silver platter"

This weekend has been packed with family fun, 
one of my sisters moved out of my parent's house
& it was a reason to celebrate!
We went to the BrickWall Tavern in Asbury Park for some brews & oysters!
I also got my usual shrimp and grits which are AMAZING there!

For lunch the next day we dabbled in some homemade spicy tuna rolls, 
the hubby became quite an expert- as usual.

Even though it was 95+ degrees out, I could not resist getting my first Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks!

The first of September also means it is my birthday month! 
Here are a few things on my wish list! 
Vera Bradley Blush & Brush Makeup Case in African Violet {$42} / Lo & Chlo Troll Head Ring with Crystal Hair in Bronze {$85} / Kate Spade Saturday Small Dome Cosmetic Case in Crosswalk Stripe {$40} / Ann Taylor Lemon Drop Sweater {$40} / Aeropostale BC Up All Night Flat {$50}

Sunday Shopping! & wearing the goods!

It has been fun finding the perfect spots for all the amazing goods I picked up during my Rhode Trip! 

Another exciting thing around these parts is our new TV! 
We have had the same small TV since Charlie's dorm room, & this is the first TV I have ever owned!

The dogs were not impressed...

The hubby hard at work to mount it on the fireplace!

definitely an upgrade! 
Now we have to work on hiding the cords...

I also picked up some other items this week,
I love this necklace from BaubleBar for a while & when it was the buried bauble & on sale for $15 I finally added it to my collection, the neon rope sold me!

I also redeemed some points from Chictopia for this simple, yet very pretty necklace! 
Perfect for a day when the outfit makes the statement already and you need a little extra shine!

One of the last items that I bought from Antropologie before I had to quit for the school year is this beautiful floral cut out blouse!

I was also excited to receive my new Zenni Optical polka dot glasses!
My favorite part is the option to inscribe them, the inside of mine say "behindglasses" 8)

What I Wore: glasses- Zenni Optical, lips- MAC "Chatterbox", top & pants- Anthropologie, flats- Target

Happy Sunday Shopping!

My pattern challenge starts tomorrow!
