Phew, that sure felt like a long break! I decided to give myself a week off of blogging for the holiday. It felt pretty nice :) But I think it's time to get back in the mix and share some of what I've been up to...
I got the chance to scoot home for a few days before Christmas. I have to say, it was completely rejuvenating. I have the kind of relationship with my family where we just "get" each other. They're silly, and chaotic, and hilarious. We spent most of the time driving around, laughing our asses off, and watching cheesy movies and TV shows.
Luckily in between the silliness, I got to take some photos with some newly acquired things from Sammydress.
By the way, I can't do this post without mentioning how nice it was to shoot photos in such a unique space, compared to the cityscape that I'm used to! My parents owned a vintage and antique furniture business for awhile, so their home is filled with cool old pieces, like the radio above. It was a nice change of scenery, not to mention my mom has a great eye for photography!
Anyway... a couple of the things I'm wearing were provided to me by sammydress.com. To be completely truthful, I was a bit skeptical when I first received their email, because when I looked them up, there were some negative reviews of the company. But I have to say, I LOVE everything that I was sent!
The sweater I'm wearing here is really nice and cozy (although it is HUGE.) I think my favorite find was the jewelry, though. Everything I got ranged in price from $1-$5 in price. My favorite is this little tape pendant!!
The reviews on the website were also really helpful... I tried to go for the things that had pictures, and had good reviews, and it seemed to have worked out. You could make out like a bandit if you look for things with the the "free shipping" option. Along with a coupon code I found online, I got this sweater, two pendants, and two rings for just under $30!!
I should probably disclose though... even though I loved that oval ring, it turned my finger a funny color after wearing it for a few hours :/ For $1 though, I'm not complaining too loudly. xx
