5 Things I Want To Buy Because I'm A Shopaholic

Happy Friday! Although not so happy because we are getting more snow! Then even more on Sunday night.  I can't take anymore. I'm hoping it is all a sick joke and the groundhog won't see his shadow on Monday. Fingers crossed.

Today I thought I would share five things I want. I know Christmas was just a little over a month ago and I know that I don't need anything nor can I afford any extras right now but. . . that doesn't stop me from dreaming to win the lottery so I can buy everything!

Here are my top 5 at the moment:

1. TOMS 
I really want a new pair of Toms. I think they are great for travel (easy slip on/off at airport) and they are comfortable. I would like a pair to take to CA when I go at the end of Feb but that will also work for early spring here in New England. I like these b/c they are neutral and I think they would work with most colors/outfits. What do you think?

2. Hunter Boots
I've been lusting over a pair of these for about two years now but they are just so expensive. I keep checking Nordstrom Rack hoping I'll get lucky and score a pair for 50 bucks but no luck yet. I think they would be great for my trip to Vermont in a couple of weeks! Not even sure what color I would get but I do love the shiny ones best!

3. Coral Scallop Hem Top
I love this top. Love the color. Love the hem. Really love the hem. It may or may not be on the way to me in the mail. . .

 4. Young Living Essential Oils
I know the whole essential oil thing is pretty much cult-like in the blog world right now and I'll admit it. . . I drank the juice. I love reading about all the benefits these oils have. I think they would be amazing for some of my MS symptoms, migraines, stress, sleep, etc. If only I had an extra $150 to buy the starter kit! Someday! If you use them tell me your favorite one and what you use it for!

5. Workout Clothes
I know I know this one may be shocking to some of you. I'm not the biggest fan of the gym. I have a hard time motivating myself to workout. I am doing a MS bike ride in May and since I needed to train I joined the YMCA and I've been taking spin classes. I've taken them before and I love them. They are such a great workout! I need some cute clothes that are spin appropriate. I LOVE this tank and think it is very appropriate so it may need to be purchased but I also need bottoms - what are your favorites ladies? Old Navy? Target? Althea? Think affordable options please. Oh and I like capri as opposed to pants or shorts but will take suggestions for all.

That's all for now! Have a wonderful weekend. Ella is sleeping over so I should have some funny stories to share next week!

  1. I typically wear old navy active bottoms!

    I can't do the $150 Hunters. I just can't.

    I've heard awesome things about what oils can do for MS.

  2. Ooooo! All 5 of these look fabulous

  3. We are a lot alike. I love essential oils and SHOPPING... Your blog is so cute !! Visiting from the link up !

    1. I'm at
      I was logged in under my personal account on accident :/

  4. I can't justify Hunter boots either. I like Old Navy and Victoria's Secret for workout gear.

  5. I'm not sure what size shoe you wear, but I have kid's size Hunters and only paid $75 for them in Nordstrom. I wear a 6-6.5 in women's, and I think the boots are a 5 in kids. Its a nice way to save $$$

    I like Old Navy and have recently discovered VS workout gear from a VoxBox I was sent. Old Navy is at a much bette price point.

  6. I really, really want to get into essential oils, but I can't justify the cost unless I know for sure they work. But how do you know unless you buy them. Haha! Toms are on sale on Zulily today!
