Saturday was my birthday, so I made time to treat myself to an at-home manicure, which I often don’t have the time to do. But immediately after pulling out my arsenal of polishes and other accouterments, my 2-year-old starts whining, making sad faces and pointing to her own nails. So I had no choice but to give her a quick mani or else there would be no peace during my own. (more…)
I love Kestrel Cosmetic Bags. I discovered them last fall at my local Nordstrom Rack store. There are a bunch of different styles and fabrics, but what I love the most is that they are very high quality at a very low price point. When I first saw them in store, I was instantly drawn to the display. The bargain shopper that I am, I immediately looked at the price tag and did a double take. I expected it to say something like $30, marked down from $50+. So imagine my shock when the price tag said $10. I quickly picked up another bag and checked that price tag to see if a mistake had been made.
Nope…no mistake. Although the design, fabrication and hardware are luxe, Kestrel bags only look like you broke the bank. So I did what any expert shopper would do: I loaded up my cart with variety of styles for holiday gift-giving. Every December, I run into the same problem – I have a ton of friends, co-workers and kids’ teachers to thank, and I can only afford presents that cost about $10 each. But most gifts under $10 are utter crap and you’d rather give nothing at all than give someone a $10 piece of junk. Kestrel bags are the perfect solution to this Christmastime conundrum. (more…)

I first discovered the site on Pinterest, then proceeded to get lost on their website – which is chock-full of the cutest organizers, planners, wallets, travel accessories and other ingenious doohickeys.
For my first purchase, I bought this Colorful Mini Card Book v2 (on sale for $16.76). I have too many rewards cards and other plastic nonsense that would float freely at the bottom of my purse. My important plastic goes in my purse, but these other cards never truly had a home – until now. The Mini Card Book contains a total of 30 PVC pockets (it’s almost like those photo holders wallets used to have before smartphones came along). Anyway, this brilliant item holds your business/credit/rewards cards, has 3 separators to help you organize the contents, and there’s a strong band on the outside that keeps the book securely closed.
After receiving the Mini Card Book and loving it, I decided to buy the All-in-One Leather Clutch v3 (on sale for $69.56). I’d been eyeing for a while. I had been looking for a wallet that would keep me organized while also indulging my hoarding tendencies. It has 1 main card pocket, 2 money sleeves, 1 hidden pocket, 2 multi pockets, 10 card pockets, 1 zippered mesh pocket, 1 receipt pocket and a key ring. It also has enough room to fit my iPhone 6 when I use the wallet wristlet-style (I also bought the matching strap, sold separately). The only thing I wish is that this wallet came in more colors. I snagged the red, but I would have loved a gray or taupe-y color.
I double dog dare you to go on mochithings.com and NOT find something that you need/want. Let me save you the trouble. It’s impossible.

I just bought this beautiful Tory Burch handbag and couldn’t wait to share with you. Last weekend, I was in Nordstrom where I saw it in person and it was love at first sight.
It’s the perfect size – roomy enough so that I don’t have to significantly downsize to fit my junk inside but not so cavernous that the interior becomes a black hole. The leather is buttery soft, the stitching is exquisite and the color (it’s called Norwood) is DIVINE! I love that the convertible chain strap lets you wear the bag as a crossbody or as a shoulder bag (with the chain doubled up). And the cherry on top is the tassel. I mean, tassels are like glitter – they make everything better, right?
LOVE. THIS. BAG.
