My favorite things...

I thought I would share a little about my favorite things....

As you can probably tell from IG, I am obsessed with clothes!  OMG like seriously obsessed.  BUT...I am by no means rich, so I have to be frugal, when it comes to my fashion finds.  A lot of my clothes are old.  At least the classic looks.  Heck I have on a skirt today that I bought when I lived in NYC and I purchased it from The Limited inside the World Trade Center.  Yep, that is old! What I usually do is look to more expensive sites, one of my favs is J Crew.  Then I try to copy a certain look I like.  For instance the above outfit.  The green and white checked shirt is from Old Navy and cost me only 10 bucks.  I am a coupon Queen and it was on sale.  The sweater is Forever 21 and cost me 12 buckaroos!  The jeans on the other hand are a bit more expensive, but I did get them on sale.  They are True Religion and I paid $100 at Zappos.  Another obsession of mine is jeans.  Ugh....at times it gets out of hand!  My favs are True Religion, 7 For All Mankind, Joe's and Hudson.  I NEVER EVER pay full price!  I get them at either Zappos or 6pm.com.  Oh and Off Fifth, when I visit my sis in Florida.  I have a few Miss Me's but they aren't as flattering on me. 
My favorite place for workout clothes is by far Old Navy.  They are affordable and fit nice.  I will say the get a funky smell to them when you sweat, so I have to wash them VERY regularly. I also get some from Target.  Like I said before, I try to be frugal with my shopping.
Another obsession of mine is J Crew Factory.  OMG the deals you can get are awesome!  Just need to be patient and wait for the sales.  My last purchase there, I got 10 items for under $100.  And they are things that are in style right now!
I am NOT a make-up person or beauty product girl at all.  I wear whatever I can get on sale at Walgreens.  I do not wear foundation or powder, just a little blush on my cheeks, some lipstick, mascara and a nuetral eyeshadow.  I swear by Garnier Skin Renew Daily Moisture Lotion and good old Vaseline, for my face!
I love me some jewelry and I get most of this at Forever 21 and Charlotte Russe.  That way if it breaks, or my Livi breaks it, I am not out a lot of money.  I also love Francesca's.
Favorite online shopping sites: Old Navy, J Crew Factory, Forever 21, 6pm.com, Zappos, The Limited, Charlotte Russe and Target.  I am not a mall girl anymore.  I would rather order and return, if I have to.  I also love Hazel and Olive!!  That site is awesome and Taylor is so wonderful to deal with.  Also another new fav is Page 6 Boutique. Super cute clothes and affordable!
My favorite music is 80's by far.  Remember I am 25 for the 16th time!! 
Favorite vacation spot....CABO BABY!  That place is AMAZING!  Oh and Florida, my parents and little sis live there so that is a very affordable vacation!  I am actually going at the end of March for 10 days. Hence the 30-day shred and Ripped in 30 obsession. 
Favorite workout, kickboxing!!!  Like I have said before, this workout will get you some amazing overall results! That is how my abs woke up and started to show. :)
Favorite city to visit and of course shop.....NYC!  OMG I love that place.  I lived there for 8 years and sure do miss it.  I mean there is so much to do every moment of every day!  I used to get coffee and a bagel delivered.  Now who wouldn't love that!
My favorite people in the whole world:
 

 

 



 
 
I almost forgot I am a Real Housewives SUPER FAN!  Love them all.  They are all a big fat hot mess and watching them makes me realize, I am so happy and blessed to have such a "boring" life.  I also have to admit to the fact that I watch Dance Moms, Honey Boo Boo and Toddlers and Tiaras.  I also love just about anything on Bravo.  You know I don't watch one "normal" non-reality show.  Dear God, I think I need therapy!
 
On a side note, today is my first ever mammogram.  I am freaking out!  Thank God they don't have to take my blood pressure, it will be through the roof.  I just want it over with!  Hope you are all having a fabulous Tuesday!
xoxo,
Lori

  3. I love RH. I watch every location except for Atlanta and Miami. Not sure why I don't like those, but the ladies annoy me.

    Good luck on your mammogram!
