Francesca Joy Palm Beach

Inspired by the fine art paintings of Elise Francesca, and design work of Palm Beach based interior designer, Carolyn Roy, you will LOVE this line! Elise's designs, mostly nautical and floral, are gorgeous! The S. Tyler Anchor design is my favorite, with Roy Destination a close second!

Simply Bags: Monogrammed laptop bag

My Vera Bradley laptop bag got lost in my move so I was thrilled to receive this monogrammed laptop bag from Simply Bags to review. I LOVE that this bag can be carried over your shoulder! My previous laptop bag couldn't so it was not easy to travel with! I brought my new laptop bag with me to my sister's house last week. It was very light and easy to carry. My only complaint is that I wish there was an OUTSIDE zip pocket but I can make do with the extra storage INSIDE!

Matches my brown couch!

My pink Dell fits perfectly!

The inside zip pocket can hold cords, DVD, wallet, cell, etc. The blue section has room for credit cards, ID, business cards, etc. There is also a space for pens, highlighters, etc. Wish I had had this bag in college!

The customer service was great and the bag shipped very quickly! I would definitely consider buying a bag from . There are a ton of cute beach bags and some adorable kid bags too (a whole range for kids and adults).

**I was sent this bag in exchange for an honest review**

Birthday Buys!

I got a J.Crew red card (25% off!) from H's mom and I was so excited to use it. I think we're all aware that J.Crew has been very hit or miss recently (really? seriously?). Anyway I was pleasantly surprised to find multiple things I was interested in. I LOVE this Lisette lace shell! It can be paired with jeans for a more casual look or a black skirt or black pants for dressier occasions. I got the heirloom pink AND black (25% off PLUS birthday splurge!). I am already thinking the black will be perfect for my sister's wedding week!

I also went to Cabana, the local Lilly Pulitzer via store. The Juliana dress is so comfortable and I love that you can add a belt! The dress is also available in jewel green on the Lilly site.

You can see alternate views of the Juicy sweater here. The sweater is on sale HERE plus get an additional 30% off with code: JCSALE (exp 10/18)
