faves for friday: recent purchases & give-a-way winner!

So I have been celebrating signing my teaching contract with a bit of a shopping spree,
here are my winnings:

Birchboxes from the last couple of months:

July may have been my favorite one yet, big eye liner, lovely perfume & mints that I can't stop eating...

Loving this Essie polish "Penny Talk" it is like a rose gold color, easily one of my favorites: 

New computer case from my future sister-in-law: 

New pants: 
  neon yellow trousers {$50} & pink jeans {$25} from the GAP

Now, this is normally too expensive for a pair of jeans for me but I have been looking everywhere for this style, black jeans, and high waisted jeans. So really this is like three dreams pairs in one. = justified

New tops:
 Saw this top on instagram & new this beauty had to be mine! {$10 from El Vintage}

This elephant top is #1 on my want list- the fiancé is ordering it for me, he is the best =)

As I was writing this post I was also stalking Chictopia in hopes of scoring this baby with my Chic Points:
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! 
After 5 minutes of refreshing & for 3,600 points, welcome to my closet =)

I also preordered my sorority print from Lilly Pulitzer:

 they will arrive August 15th, just in time for school to start =)

Also made my first JewelMint purchase:
 I have been stalking this collar for a while & it was finally back in stock & I used a 50% off code so it was only like $15! 

Upon arrival at JFK after Mexico my suitcase was a pancake, 
it had completely fallen apart.
I mean it had withstood 2 trips to China, a trip to New Zealand, Italy, 2 trips to Costa Rica, & Mexico
It was past its prime, 
so welcome home to my new suitcase:
It is HUGE, which will save on paying for two checked bags on vacation since it will fit both mine & the fiancés clothes. {Macys $120- early birthday present from parents}

& yes I know I have a shopping problem, but getting packages is the best.

And drum roll please for my Hola from Mexico Give-a-way:
Congrats Frances Blagg, emailing you now! =)
