Meg: Five Things

It has been a little bit since my last ‘Five Things’ post, and I have some fun things to share with you! This is definitely more of a winter-themed ‘Five Things’, despite Tucson’s 80-degree weather. I know those of you living places not lacking winter weather are rolling your eyes, but it doesn’t feel like the holidays without frosted windshields and nightly fires in the fireplace. Okay, I’m done complaining!

1. New Wedding Shoes


You may remember that I bought a pair of shoes for the wedding a while ago. Sadly, they ended up being much too tall and with little to no grip on the bottom (I’m not trying to be the bride that trips…). I was thrilled when I stumbled upon these lovelies at Macy’s!

 2. Cream Sweater


My favorite H&M purchase in a while! This cream sweater is the perfect length and is a new staple in my “winter” wardrobe. It looks adorable with a scarf and leggings or dark skinny jeans and wedges! Nothing beats a great sweater 🙂

3. Winter Make Up


L’Oreal’s translucent finishing powder is perfect to set a full face of make up before a holiday party. It also gives you a flawless look without adding color if you don’t wear pressed powder. The Neutrogena 3-in-1 Eye Concealer is a concealer, eye cream, and SPF 20 all in 1! The eye cream  in this concealer gives dried out eyes the chance to heal while hiding any bags or dry skin. LOVE.

4. Long Necklaces


Long necklaces give outfits a really effortless look. My newest necklace has pearls and “diamonds” which give comfy looks an added polish!

5. Needlepoint


 If you get a chance, visit Alyssa over at Sick City Needlepoint: (

She made us the most adorable needlepoint for the wedding, and it will be our first decoration in our future home 🙂 She does custom needlepoint work in 7” and 10” options. This might just make the sweetest gift for some of my girlfriends!


Which five things are you loving right now? I always find such great inspiration in the things you all share with me!

    If you like shopping online Zara is one of the stores that I love love. Zara has nice and trendy clothes plus the shipping and returns are free. I love it and I am sure you would too. Check it out sometimes!! I just ordered pants last night and I can’t wait to get them so I can try them on.

    I’ve been searching for a new, great eye concealer, and I think I might have to try this one! Because the skin under my eyes is dry, my concealer always looks awful (and I really, really need it to cover my under eye circles. Regardless of how much sleep I get, I look like a zombie!) Thanks for the recommendation!

    Looove that sweater. I’ve been looking for a new winter sweater about that length so thanks for this – going to check out H&M this weekend! 🙂

    Those were my wedding shoes too – I just got married in September. Great height and comfy! The brand is Bandolino.

    What a great list! love the sweater 🙂 I’m loving PB2, Pinterest, new chunky necklace, burgundy “leather” jacket, and combat boots. boom!

    The wedding shoes are gorgeous. I still haven’t even found a dress for my wedding so I can’t pick shoes until that’s done. I want a simple shoe because I plan to have a sparkly dress.

    I’ll have to give that eye cream a shot!

  10. Julie on December 7, 2012 at 2:58 pm

    That necklace would look great w/ your new sweater! Love them both!

    I also love your sweater!! Totally going to get one in the next few weeks when I go to h&m. Also going to try out the makeup, I’m sorely lacking in makeup selections
