Thrift Style Thursday this week is bags! I have actually found a ton of really unique bags at thrift stores, they aren’t something you can just walk in and find any day, but when you find the one..it’s pretty awesome. I found this bag at Goodwill the other day when I just randomly stopped in. For some reason, I have a hard time passing up brown bags..
This isn’t the only bag I’ve thrifted and shown on here, my favorite find is actually a vintage Dooney and Bourke briefcase I found at a consignment shop for less that $30!

Have you guys ever tried purple lipstick before? I typically stick to bright reds, so when I received some samples of Maybelline Elixr and saw purple I was pretty skeptical. That being said, I actually don’t totally hate this look. They also sent me a few other colors and I’m thinking of doing a review on them, I’ve never done a beauty product review before, so stay tuned..
What do you see when you look at giant apartment complexes? My guess is probably what most of us see – a huge apartment complex. That’s not what a group of artists in Berlin saw – they say a beautiful landscape. Over three years they worked to create an amazing, 22,000 square meter mural. Check out the pictures here.
I don’t own a lot of plain black shirts, so when Jane contacted me about their products and I saw this shirt, I knew I had to have it (plus it has leopard in it – most of you know how I feel about leopard print). I paired it with a skirt from Target
(that may, or may not be from the kids section – I’m not saying it’s right, just saying it happened..). And fleece lined leggings! People – have you worn fleece lined leggings before? I found them at Marshalls and figured I’d try them out – they’re SO warm. Seriously, WAY better than the lame regular leggings I’ve worn for the past (too many) years.

If you haven’t heard of Jane before, it’s actually a pretty awesome site. They sell boutique items at up to 80% off! They have daily deals so they’re constantly getting new stuff, and it’s not just clothes, there are some AWESOME potential Christmas gifts like handmade pillows, and personalized coasters.
Also, I just checked their deals and they have fleece lined leggings on sale for just $6.99 (note: these are not the same ones I’m wearing, but they are significantly less expensive than the ones I bought).
Calgary-based airline WestJet sets up electronic Santa chat boxes in terminals at the Hamilton and Toronto airports. Travelers giggle at the chance to talk live with Santa through a screen, and parents and kids alike tell him what they want for Christmas. But the surprise is far from over. While the flights soar to their destination in Calgary,WestJet shoppers pick up everybody’s Christmas wishes, from “socks and underwear” to “a big TV.” When they get to baggage claim, tired travelers see their luggage — and big blue boxes with their names on the front and their dream Christmas gifts inside. Faux snow falls, tears are shed, and a giant gingerbread man waddles around the luggage belt eating cookies. See the amazing video of this here.
I can’t be the only one who swoons over Free People knowing they totally can’t afford it, right? I was actually pretty disappointed the Nordstrom Rack that recently opened near me didn’t have much available, so when Paul gave me this gorgeous sweater (which he picked out on his own!), I was pretty ecstatic..
Sweater: Free People // Necklace: Ebay // Boots: Target
Also, if you ever look at their catalog (or website), you’ve probably noticed that all the girls are basically dancing around in fields (yet somehow manage to look gorgeous, and not ridiculous). Figured I’d give it a go, I think I nailed it…
An awesome Indiana police officer is making sure that no one gets left behind — not even stuffed members of the family. Last Saturday, Jason Cullum of the Evansville Police Department spied a teddy bear on the interstate on his way to work. But instead of driving by, he stopped traffic to pick it up, according to Good Morning America. How sweet is that? Check out the full story here.
