1 person, gym selfie in grey leggings

Good morning!  Happy Monday!  Sorry for the delay, if you saw IG Stories this morning, you know I’m a little behind on the Weekend Snaps and why.  Speaking of, I’ve been doing morning chats on my walks to work (the parking situation at my new job isn’t the best 😉 ) and loving it.  It’s also Amazon Prime Day today–yaaassss!–so I’ll be sharing a round up of the best deals later today, so check back.  The sale goes live at 3pm EST.

Let’s jump into the weekend!

On Friday night I went for a little visit with my Grammy and then hit the gym.  Afterwards, I grabbed Shawarma for dinner as a treat and gobbled it up so quick, I didn’t even take a pic!

I took a trip down to New York state to pick up a few items at my postal box and this skirt & these slides were some of the items.  The skirt runs a tad big, I’m wearing a size 6 and usually am an 8 or 10 at places like H&M or Zara.  I also love that it comes in regular or tall–I took the tall and love how this skirt hits just below the knee on me, and for once I’m not showing too much leg in the office 😉  #tallgirlproblems

The slides are soooo comfy, I was shocked when I slid them on, they felt like little pillows on my feet, which is shocking for something so flat.  They run tts; I’m wearing my usual size 10.  I sprayed them immediately when I get home on the straps and the bottom of the toe bed in hopes to keep the suede and leather as clean as possible.

Bonus, the skirt and slides are both 40% off today only with code BRSAVE40, plus they will take an additional 10% off at the check out (no code needed).

I also scored these peep-toe knot mules in this pretty blush colour.  Love!  They have a shorter, block heel which makes them uber comfy and easy to walk in.

I had initially ordered these gold mules for our wedding, but sadly the 9.5 was too small and I had to send them back.  I was going to re-order but something was stopping me.  Not sure what, to be honest, maybe wasn’t crazy about the leather… just something was holding me back.

Anyway, all that to say I’m thinking these blush ones might be the perfect something to wear for the after party or even to any bridal events leading up to the big day!

In other wedding news, I went and “picked up” my wedding dress on Saturday!

I’m putting picked up in quotes because I brought half of it home, and the other half is being stored at the boutique until I return for some minor alterations.  I’m adjusting a couple parts and removing something to add my own personal touch to it.  However, she’s officially mine!

cell phone with Instagram, how we met


I didn’t have much in the way of plans on Saturday night, and Marco was returning from a trip, so I hunkered down at home, made some dinner and put on a movie.

I had posted the question option on my Instastories and several questions came in so I worked away at answering those and also made these clean peanut butter cups that I haven’t made in forever.

I added all the answers to my highlights reel under ‘Q&A’s’.  If you want to ask an anonymous question, hit the highlight tab called, ‘Your Q’s’ and you can type in a question and it will send it to me.

On Sunday, I met up with Lisa to shoot and then headed home to hang with Marco.  He picked up a planter and some little plants and planted us a herb garden!  So excited to have some fresh basil and avoid last minute trips to the grocery store too 😉

I took it easy for the rest of the day, tidied up a bit before we spent a couple hours in the garden wedding–ugh!  Some real life adulting going on over here you guys, can’t say I’m a fan of this part 😛

Hope you all had a great weekend!  See you later for my fave Amazon Prime Day sales!
