Happy Sunday! I spent a large part of my weekend shooting and editing new vintage (like the amazing Miss Piggy glass seen above), and it will all be listed in the shop today. Here are a few things I was feelin' this week:

Essie nail polish in Off Tropic - I was in Target buying a card for a friend's engagement party and a bottle of Off Tropic was just sitting there by the stationery. I had to have it. Dark green should nicely compliment my fair Irish skin, right? ;)

• Throwback jam stuck in my head all week: Seafarer - Tennis

Functioning Minimalist Podcast. I've listened to this podcast all the way through about four times, and I put it on whenever I'm cleaning or doing Etsy work. Sara just gets me, ya know?

• How cute are these sandals? Less than twenty bucks at Target and very versatile.

• Sometimes on my lunch break, I go to Dollar General and buy health & beauty items that I don't really need. This is one of those items: SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow & Restore Treatment Masque. I'm not mad about it, though. I tried it out one night last week and it made my hair feel and smell so good.

I'm testing out the new Etsy sale feature. Apparently the sale prices are only visible to some shoppers, so if that's not you, I'm sorry! The whole shop is 15% off til Monday and - don't forget - all vintage ships free within the United States. Check it out!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, friends. I'll be on my couch eating Chinese food and watching "Game of Thrones" if anyone needs me.




FREE U.S. SHIPPING ON ALL VINTAGE! Yes, the rumors are true. All vintage at awildtonic on Etsy ships free withing the United States (sorry international fam) from now until ? Start your holiday shopping early and snag a great deal while you can.

Plant shopping on the first day of spring turned into a mini-photo shoot in Home Depot. Diana casually snapped some photos of me and Erica, and all we could do was laugh thinking about what the employees were thinking. "Oh no, not another photo shoot in the cactus aisle." The dress that I'm wearing as a top and the blouse Erica is wearing are gifts from ToSave.com. The blouse was a little too tight on me, so I gave it to my sister. It has such a beautiful flower pattern on it, she fit right in amongst the heather (also called "Erica"! So trippy!). My dress is a bit too bright to wear to work as is, so I wear it as a top with this blue vintage skirt. We call it my "Conceptual Clueless" outfit because it vaguely reminds us of something Cher Horowitz would wear. We left with a few new succulents and plants and planters and lavender all-purpose household cleaner – bye, all of my money. But who needs money? It's spring!

ADVERTORIAL: Inflatable-zone.org


Now that the mad rush of the holiday season is over and the days are slowly starting to grow longer, my mind is firmly set on summertime. I know that winter is just beginning and we still have plenty of snow and wind and cold ahead of us, but a girl can hope, right? I long for days on the beach, fireworks, rum coconuts on the boardwalk, and quick dips in the ocean. Living four blocks from the shore is a pretty sweet deal. I feel like I didn't make the most of my first full summer in Asbury Park. I worked a lot and lazed about my apartment fairly often, as well. Not this year – mark my words. I will be on that beach or at least outside in the sunshine as much as humanly possible.

When I was younger, my family would go on vacation to Jamaica. The resort we stayed at had all these crazy fun water activities. My mom used to "force" us to play, even though my sister and I would much rather have napped under a palm tree ("You can sleep at home!" she'd yell.) This place had giant tricycles and a floating trampoline! And I'd rather nap! That was the first thing I thought of when I found out about Inflatable Zone. Inflatable Zone has a large selection of absolutely unreal inflatable fun. Everything from bubble soccer to inflatable water slides – it's all here.

These inflatable amusement parks really make me want a big backyard. Could you imagine how much fun something like this would be for a Fourth of July barbecue? Love the palm trees and the Disney style ones, too! Back in the day, my college would have these kinds of things set up for various spring and fall events, and I was always too cool to play. Definitely regretting it now.

The inflatable zone - inflatable bubble ball is probably the last thing I would normally choose to participate in. I don't know if it's the people having so much fun in the promotional photos or the fact that I'm itching to NOT be cold for one second, but I would romp around in these bubble balls in a heartbeat if given the opportunity.

And how cool are these inflatable water slides? Again, I love the one with the little palm trees, so tropical! Inflatable Zone also offers a giant firetruck, Anna and Elsa, and of course the more utilitarian styles for those of us looking strictly for the thrills without bells and whistles.

New Year's Eve is just one short sleep away! It's absolutely crazy that 2016 is almost over. Doesn't it seem like it just started? Like many people, I'm excited for the promise of the new year, resolutions and all that. I'm also very excited to start using my new Rifle Paper Co. planner because I'm a geek. Alright enough with the cliches - let's talk NYE style. Today I'm working with Ericdress (here) to showcase some of the NYE looks I'm coveting.


All three of these beauties are under $30! I'm in love with this retro-style floral print; it reminds me of a theoretical vintage couch that I would pay a lot of money to own. You can't go wrong with a bright white dress. You'll definitely stand out in a crowd - just make sure you're not drinking red wine because, if you're anything like me, this dress will be white AND red before long. My favorite of the bunch is this lemon print dress. Crazy pattern, flattering cut, and a matching belt? So flippin' fun.

Now let's discuss these lacy beauties. I chose three colors to feature today: classic white, classic black, and this awesome yellow number. The white is so classy and perfect, I can even see someone wearing it as an informal wedding dress. I love the layered skirt, too! The black one is so cool, it should certainly be paired with a leather jacket and booties. The yellow is my favorite, though. The layering is so fantastic, as is the geometric pattern. And that belt! Definitely going to try something like this in my own wardrobe soon.

Wishing you all a lovely and safe NYE, and a beautiful 2017. Back soon with more fun in the new year. ♥
