J: Hi. Busy life happening over here. We’ve missed you. Let’s catch up, shall we?

As you know, Jay and I are expecting a little boy in May and we are officially in FULL nursery planning/baby shopping mode. We will do a nursery reveal once we have the furniture installed, but here are a few items I’ve scooped so far:

Curtains: Had. To. Have. These. They’re pretty perfect for basically any room in your home.

Pottery Barn Pom Drapes

Accent Table: A table very similar to this was one of the first purchases I made for the nursery to go next to the glider. Super cute. Great price. Target wins AGAIN.

Animal Heads: I obsessed over finding wall decor for the nursery that wasn’t cheesy. Really difficult task. BEHOLD the most precious white animal heads we came across at Z Gallerie and purchased on the spot.

And now for a few pregnancy must haves…

  1. My girlfriend, Annie turned me on to Mama Mio products and they are nothing short of amazing.
  2. This top. In every color. Perfect for the layering I’ve been doing in the chilly weather. Perfect fit. Super soft.
  3. Still sporting heels on the daily, but these slippers are sweet relief when I get home. And in gold. Naturally.

Promise we won’t stay gone long this time! We have Super Bowl Sunday and Valentine’s Day on the horizon after all!

friday five: pick-me-ups.

We can’t lie. It’s been a long week. L has been sick, J’s been swamped at work, and the weather down south has been super depressing. So, in true Glitter Girl style, we’re planning a fun and productive weekend to shake these rainy day WEEK blues. Here’s our plan:

1. Decorate. A little Target-ing always lifts our mood.  A few pics of some recent Target finds..

Coral Pillow
this coral pillow adds life to L’s leather couch.
Nate Berkus Gold Bowl
L scooped this Nate Berkus for Target gold bowl during the holidays.

Have you seen the new and improved Threshold for Target collection? This iron wire table is a MUST have.

Threshold for Target
at $69, why not?

2. Make. Inspired by J’s recent purchase of a green guacamole bowl (from Target! we can’t stop.), we’re going to whip up this fresh Edamame Guacamole on Saturday afternoon and cross our fingers for patio weather. Just add pita chips and a cocktail.

3. Makeover. Our closets, that is. L’s closet is jammed with hangers, and J’s bedroom is a maze of laundry piles. Inspired by this article on Lauren Conrad and this post on Cupcakes and Cashmere, we’re going to at least START spring cleaning our closets.

before: yikes.

4. Shop. Now that we have some room in our closets, we’re going to reward our superior organization skills with a few spring wardrobe purchases. What? We deserve it! Our picks:

Floral Button Down
L: i’m obsessed with button down shirts, and this pretty floral will energize my trusty navy blazer and white denim. gap.com.
BCBG Madria Sandal
J: I’m reeeally feeling this BCBG Madria Sandal. Pair with white jeans or shorts… done.

5. Nails. What would our Friday Five be without a new nail color? J’s picking up Essie’s Bikini So Teeny at lunch today.

Essie Bikini So Teeny
at least our nails will be springy in this sparkly, cornflower blue.
