Online Shopping Confessions


I know...I know...Christmas just passed, so what the heck am I doing buying stuff already?  Well the truth is, I get inspired!  By traveling down south, seeing ideas on your blogs...and taking advantage of the sales!  :)  And I always love seeing what you all are loving in the retail world, so I'm sharing the love.

I am seriously obsessed with the Enzo Milano curling wand!  My hair NEVER holds curl...so I rarely bother even trying, but this product is a dream come true.  Not only does my hair hold curl all day long, but it's super easy and fast to use.  I'll post some pictures of my hair soon!

I bought this cute chevron calendar for my desk at work.  I ordered it in all green and love it!

So I actually didn't buy this online, it was a birthday present, but I adore this lululemon bag {no longer available, similar bags found here}.  I think it will work well as a baby bag actually...what do you think?

Speaking of baby...we've started looking at cribs!  Here are the two that are topping the list:

This is the Babyletto Modo 3 in 1 Crib.  Super chic and modern...and Walmart carries a similar crib for less!  I've heard this crib is quite low though...measuring at only 35 inches high.  Since neither Ryan or I are considered "short" I worry this might not be a feasible option!

This is the Pottery Barn Larkin Fixed 4-in-1 Crib!  Much more traditional and classic.  I also love that this can be converted into full size bed.  And how cute is this bedding?  Kind of in love!  :)

Which do you prefer?  Any other suggestions?

I also ordered a super cute cable knit cardigan from Forever 21, but in true fashion, it's already disappeared from their website!  I'll have to take a picture...it hits at my knee so it's super long and comfy!

Ok that's all for this edition of Online Shopping confessions!  Hope you all have a great day!

  2. Great picks! I've been shopping all week too for some reason but you can't beat the sales right now so I don't feel tooo guilty. :)

  3. I can't wait to see how the curling iron looks on your hair. Mine never holds a curl either so I'm very intrigued! Also relieved I'm not the only one who continued shopping after the holidays. Couldn't help it, I seemed to find more things I wanted after the holidays than I did before!

  4. I think I need that curling wand as my hair typically doesn't hold curls well at all-thanks for the recommendation! As for the rest of your picks, I just love them! The lulu bag will be a great baby bag and still sporty chic!

  5. That calendar is so cute! I think I like the second crib better....I agree the first one might be way too low to the ground!

  6. Can't wait to hear about that curling wand. My hair is so curl resistant, too!
    Also, that bag will be great for baby Schue. I never got a diaper bag, and haven't missed it a bit. I just keep EB's stuff in a large ziplock, and toss it in my oversized purses. It works great!

  11. The baby is going to only have the best, I just know it. Love both those cribs - how will you ever decide? And that lululemon bag is perfect for a diaper bag!

  12. Ah I also need that curling wand, as my hair also does not hold a curl either!

    Also, my friend Melissa got the version of the crib from Wal-Mart, and from what I can tell she loves it! Here is her nursery tour: http://buymodernbaby.com/blog/2011/04/04/real-room-tour-baby-barrick/

  14. Tash - My cousin has the Pottery Barn crib for baby Caleb! It is adorable and perfect investment as it can transform as a child grows! Now that they are expecting twins... they may get two more of the same :) So happy for you as always!!

  16. All neat stuff. I actually had the first crib for my son in espresso. I loved it. It is low, but it wasn't that big of a deal. I always thought it looked nice. Good luck!

  17. I must get that curling iron! My hair never holds curls, even when my hair dresser tries. So I am curious is this would work for me!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I am also guilty of online shopping after the holi-daze are over. My logic is: hellooo, all the stuff is clearly on sale now!! Might as well snag it up before someone else does ;)

    I am in agreeance with lots of the other ladies; I could use a new curling iron that is a. easy to use and b. actually works! Thanks for sharing!!

  19. Can't wait to see how the curling wand works! And my vote is for the second crib! It's so adorable and I love that you can convert it into a full size bed too!

  20. Well you already know we have the Babyletto. I might allow it in the house next month.. maybe, if so I'll let you know how it is, but we are shorties compared to you...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Great finds :)Love the second crib, love the all white clean lines...

    ReplyDelete
  22. My husband and I bought the Pottery Barn Larkin crib and it is the best. Also a huge selling point is that Pottery Barn will deliver it and put it together for you-so keep that in mind! :) Good luck!

  23. I can't wait to see pics of your hair! I have a curling wand too and love it. The calendar is adorable too and of course the CRIB! xx

  25. Glad to hear you love the curling iron. My daughter is wanting one so bad! Love the PB crib!!! Love that it can grow with baby. And, the lulu bag is perfect for a baby bag.

  26. Of course I love the Pottery Barn crib, but they can be kind of pricey! I definitely wouldn't want to get a short crib if both of you are tall; you are too young to start having back problems!

    ReplyDelete
  27. LOVE the PB crib. Classic is right! It will always be in (good for future babies!!) I've heard that curling iron is awesome for hair that is tough to curl. Great tip!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Love the calendar and the second crib is gorgeous! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is the second rave I've heard about this curling wand! My hair is pin straight and thick and heavy so it never holds curls.. I really want to try it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Can't wait to see the pics of your hair using the curling wand, my hair never holds curl so I'm excited about this!

  31. That is too funny - I ordered the same calendar for my girlfriends for little New Year's gifts, and I may or may not have ordered one for myself!

    Sassyrae will be doing a giveaway on our blog next month!

  32. Isn't online shopping the next best thing to eating a calorie free hot fudge sundae with extra chocolate sauce and whipped cream!

  33. I may have to check out the curling rod since my hair never holds curls either! And I would go for the Pottery Barn crib :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. we looked at that PBK crib, too--it is gorgeous and love how it's convertible!!! i'd go classic and def get that one ;)

    ReplyDelete
  35. love the crib choices - I would definitely go classic with more modern linens! :) And that is adorable for a diaper bag!!!! Love non-traditional looking ones, I went with the Storksak peweter metallic one.. actually looks somewhat similar to that.

  36. I can't stop shopping online!!! Well, I have been pretty good lately but all I do it browse things I want. You can def use that as a baby bag!

  39. We have a Baby Mod crib from WalMart and LOVE it. Our son is 5 months old and has been in it since 5 weeks. I'm 5'4" and my husband is 6' and the height works well for both of us. It was easy to assemble, looks good, and is a 4 in 1!

    We painted the screws white so they're not so glaring.
