linky faves of both splurges and savings

// Affiliate links are used //

1. Obsessed with the newly-launched Rachel Parcell May Collection! I am a NordyClub member so I got to shop Monday at 1pm EST before the items hit the stores the following day.

I am supposed to receive my items tomorrow. I love the smocked dress that I got it in two colors - the white and the blue. 
I also ordered the mixed eyelet dress in red. That color is SOLD OUT! But the white one is still available. It's 100% cotton.

I stayed away from the thin chiffon and poly fabrics because of previous reviews. If I am paying that much for a dress, I want it to have great quality.

2. These Birdies starling flats are worth their price. When I just want to have a chill-comfy clinic day (though my fave wedges are still comfy) I wear my birdies slippers. They were my walk-around Chicago downtown shoes Easter weekend.  They are pricey, so wait till you get some nordstrom notes to cut the price.

3.  I am usually a bold-red lipstick gal. If I want just a light pink sheen lipstick ~ I have been using this Frog Prince Lipstick Queen. Starts "invisible" not green but then looks more like lip shine on my natural lip color. Try it.

4.  I am all about dresses and jumpsuits this spring. H&M did it with these picks:  long satin dress in a pretty apricot color;  powder pink satin jumpsuit (can I pull this off postpartum???); I am feeling free people vibes with this white cotton dress. I am back to the 90s here wearing floral dresses -- fashion keeps recycling itself.

5. If you follow me on instagram, I have been upping my sunglasses game by using a different pair everyday. I found these Gucci look-a-likes for definitely a fraction of the Gucci price.
YSL look-a-likes -- the splurge ones here
Chanel look-a-likes

dinner + ice cream + laundromat stories {photo diary}

Dinner ~
Hibachi at Ichiban Japanese Steakhouse- 30 minutes north of Gulf Shores, in Foley, AL. I did not get any photos.
The Crab Trap - on the way back from Pensacola, we saw this restaurant in Perdido, FL. We watched some march Madness games during dinner. The crab legs are AWESOME!
Dinner at a blogger friend's house
 De Soto's seafood  kitchen for more crab legs - see photo below
Burgers! at the BeachHouse kitchen and cocktails - I rarely crave burger. It was one of those evenings. No objection from hubby there.
Fuji San - sushi, thai and Japanese food. No photos taken on this restaurant in Mobile either. The children specially Lucas was very fussy and was just ready to go. Poor baby.

Ice cream ~
Gelato Joe's,  Foley AL - I love their nutella gelato. The children did not enjoy the cotton candy gelato (duh!) They should have ordered pistachio or mango or something else!
Matt's Ice Cream - the children spotted this ice cream shop on our first day driving down to our beach condo. Look at all the photos we took below.
 TCBY - I was the only one that got something here. The children had their *free ice cream from De Soto's. I did not. I got the fudge chocolate yogurt shake.
Rita's Italian Ice - it was the first time for the children to have Italian ice. Daniel and I got mango. The rest got their usual cotton candy.
