Loving Yellow

I’d been obsessing lately about yellow shoes. I’d seen many a cute pair but nothing said “buy me” until I came across these babies. Mmm yellow goodness. I’m really loving the bows and the kitten heel.


Me Too “Payton” $89 is available at Zappos

In other news, I’m back from my vacation to Ohio. I went out there for a few days to visit family since I hadn’t been there in years (I’m a bad relative). There was nothing really planned but we ended up at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame one day. One thing I hate about vacations is eating out every single meal. I’m so happy to be home to my hubby who made me a great home cooked dinner the first night back 🙂 Oh and I didn’t get the tan I wanted, darn…

Friday Favorites

Yay it’s Friday finally! My plans for this weekend include bday partying it up the bday girl Katie and making my favorite turkey chili. It’s seriously freakin good, so good it’s in my Friday Favorites below.

Upcoming on Pretty as Peaches– look out for my first giveaway. I also added my twitter account to this blog. You can follow me on Twitter at @prettypeachblog. I’m super duper interesting, I swear!

On to my Friday Favorites!

I love fun makeup, and MissChievous is the queen of fun makeup! I love her new tutorial on her Youtube channel.

As promised above, here’s my favorite turkey chili recipe. OMG so good!

Marshalls- I love me a bargain

I’d seen these N.Y.L.A ‘Zinnia 2’ sandals at Nordstrom for $44.95.

Oh happy dance, I found them at Marshalls for $24.95 bwahahahaha

I’m boring, I got them in black, but they also carried the bone color as well (not in my size). I also love when they sell my favorite shampoos by Frederic Fekkai for $13 instead of their normal price of $23.

Are you a bargain shopper? What’s the best bargain you’ve ever found? Let me know in the comments!

Buy… more!

I could buy this.

Tiffany Anchor Pendant $175

Or I could buy all this and still have $5 left over.

Island Hibiscus Top $14.90, Anchor Earrings $9, DV by Dolce Vita ‘Ontario’ $49.95
Vigoss Skinny Jeans $48, Roxy Ruffled Up Handbag $48

I still want the Tiffany pendant 😦 It’s so cute, but I wish it was a bit cheaper.

Here’s some stuffie stuff I bought this past week.

You can’t tell but it has a cute ruffle at the top. It’s not on the site yet but it’s by h.i.p.

Couldn’t pass up Betsey for $25.

Made a quick stop at Sephora to pick up some face cleanser by First Aid Beauty $18. I’d tried a sample of it and loved it. Expect a full review soon!

 

I also bought some nude shoes, yay! These are Seychelles “Kick up your heels” So far they’re pretty comfy!

Thursday Tricky Tricks

It’s been like 80 degrees here everyday this week. That means the toes come out from hibernation. To celebrate the heat wave I bought new sandals for worky work.

They’re Cole Haan’s with Nike technology, which I highly recommend if you do a lot of walking or standing at your job.

Breaking in shoes: To break in new or tight-fitting leather shoes easily, soak a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol. Swab the inside of the shoe where it needs stretching. While the shoe is wet, knead the shoe insides with your fingers and gently stretch the shoe from the outside wherever it is tight. Walk around in the shoe while it dries to further loosen it up. The rubbing alcohol will not damage the leather, but it will break the leather in. This trick doesn’t always work, but it’s worth a shot if you have evil shoes.

Me Likey

I had to have them.

That’s 4.5 inches of total black patent leather goodness.

The best part about this shoe? It has a fabric cuff at the top! That makes this
shoe by MICHAEL Michael Kor’s so comfy!

Michael Kor’s shoes are known for not only their quality but the way he arches his shoes, reduces fatigue in the feet. Nothing’s worse than dancing in shoes that only last an hour. These are the shoes to get you back to your car that you didn’t valet that night.

Oh Betsey Johnson, I love you. I couldn’t pass you up for $38.
