Merry (belated) Christmas!

I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas; I disappeared for the last week and a half because of a family emergency. Everyone is on the mend as of now and I hopefully will be back to blogging regularly!

Christmas was a whirl-wind for my family and as happy as I was to celebrate, I am happy its over and I can finally relax!

New Years is upon us and I need something to wear!
I wore my Lilly Shauna black and gold tunic on Christmas and my Navy and gold Adelson on Christmas Eve for church.
Any suggestions??? Lilly or otherwise I am stumped!!!

What are your New Years plans??? And what are you wearing?

Its December WHAT!?!

This month has just been flying by! Between working, shopping and partying, I have been too busy to sleep much less blog!

And with all the events I've been going to and all the delicious recipes I've been getting from friends, I'm going to look like a whale come New Year!

I hope all of you have been having a great December thus far and if you are getting ready for Christmas, all your plans have gone without a hitch!

Hopefully I will be back next week; the kids are out for two weeks and so am I!

Under The Palm Tree

Since I finished all my finals early (yey!), I treated myself to some new Lilly. Now, I wasn't a fan of much from Resort, so thanks to UTPT, I now have all the things I did like (at 40%!!! off!)
If you want to get in on the deals, just friend them on Facebook; they are having a different Lilly deal for the 12 days of Christmas! We are on day 6 now and each day has been full of some great deals (Shere sweaters at 40% off, Murfees at 20% off, Multi See Me at 40% off). And the girls at UTPT have the best service! They send things out so quickly; I remember one time I ordered on a Wednesday morning and had the item by Friday afternoon! Kansas to Pennsylvania in 2 days!!!

I got a few things for myself...

Paley Cardigan

Wayles Dress

Adleson Dress
Shiva crop pant

Moira skirt
Pierre Cardigan (a girl can never have too many cardigans!)
Shift Magnets (I have been wanting these for a while!)

I know, Christmas is almost here and I shouldn't be buying myself goodies, but I think I deserved them after the rough fall semester I had. And at 40% off, my hubby would never be able to get these items at such a great price!

Head over to Under the Palm Tree to stock up on some great deals for Christmas (and maybe a little something for yourself!)

Its Finals Week!

I won't be writing much since its finals week, but I thought I would give you all a laugh before I disappear till Friday!

(A little picture I got via e-mail from this tasty little Mexican restaurant called California Tortilla; you might have heard of it since its a chain. And I love Wills and Kate and think they are a darling couple, but this picture just made me giggle a smidge!)

New Name...and an adorable sweater find!!!

You may or may not have noticed a new name for this blog; I felt Southern Lilly Lover wasn't quite right anymore; especially since Lilly and I haven't been on the same wave length this past season and I enjoy blogging about more than just Lilly! Hence the name change!

Anyway, I was at American Eagle a few nights ago picking up some Christmas gifts for my college freshman brother (he is still in the phase that AE and Abercrombie are the height of fashion!) and stumbled upon the most amazing sweater...for myself!

And it took everything in me to resist this cutie! (I might have to stop back in for it!!)

AE Fair Isle Trim Open Cardigan

Honestly, I was shocked! I haven't purchased anything for myself at AE in years (not even exaggerating!)

Where have you found some unexpectedly cute pieces???

It's Christmas Time!!

December is finally here! I feel like I've been waiting for Christmas season forever! (Or so it seems, especially when stores have been playing holiday music since late October!)

I have been gathering a Christmas list; short this year since I have been so blessed in so many ways and really don't NEED anything; just a few wants. :)

And the only thing I never buy myself is jewelry; just a personal opinion, but I don't think ladies should buy that for themselves. Clothes, shoes, purses, etc, of course; I always buy my own, but jewelry...I enjoy it more as a gift.
Cartier Classic Tri-Color Roll Ring
David Yurman Linked Heart BraceletTiffany & Co Open Heart Bangle

Just a few baubles to tide me over until Valentines Day.

What's on your wish list???
