It’s My Birfday and I’ll Compile a Birfday List If I Want To…

Leetle Karrie | Covet Living

…like I’m 7 years old and I’m anticipating a Peaches N’ Cream Barbie or somethin’. But really, I still feel like a kid, so why grow up and stop compiling birthday wish lists? Right, my thoughts exactly. So here goes with the goodies I’ve got my eyes on 😉

This off the shoulder gray knit dress – only $35! – is so hot and very very Flashdance. Ok I’ll be honest; I kind of want Stephanie to buy it so I can just borrow it off her. Thanks Shtooph!:

Anything and everything from my new fave jewelry/fashion company – Fashionable. It’s genius and sells such great stuff – and all for a GREAT cause. All of their products (which are very reasonably priced) are made by women in the US and other countries who have overcome challenges from addiction to lack of opportunity. Four of my faves:

The most delicious smelling candle ever created – the Nest Grapefruit candle:

One of my main goals in life is not to keep myself challenged as a human being by learning a new hobby, or to achieve greatness, or live as long as possible through great health; it’s to stop looking like a GODDANG HOBO when I go to bed each night. Too bad I keep failing. That’s why I need this adorable Top and Pajama Set from Tarjay! At $19.99, it’s wicked cheap, but still really cute – and according to reviews, super comfy:

This handwoven multi-colored camera strap from LoveBirdsLA is so pretty, it might just make me pick up the ol’ camera to take some photos more often. This is just gorgeous!:

I’m in maje need of new running kicks – I think mine are 2-3 years old. These Nike Air kicks are currently on sale and just what I need!:

A subscription to the best mag on the planet:

LC Redbook

I’m just going to come out and say it. I need a subscription to Redbook Magazine. GURL DON’T KNOCK IT TIL YOU TRY READ IT! I grew up reading my grandma’s Redbooks (placed in a stack in her bathroom for leisurely reading thank you) and assumed if I opened one up these days, I’d learn about beef noodle crockpot recipes and outfit ideas for one’s favorite pair of sensible slacks. Not the case. Every time I pick up an issue (usually at home in Indiana – ’cause my Mom knows what’s up) I find myself ingesting entertaining ideas from Lauren Conrad, getting moisturizer tips from Jessica Alba, marriage tips that sound reasonable but which I’ll forget; and ok, maybe a beef and noodle crockpot recipe but one that is lean and delicious. I am embracing my love of Redbook Magazine right here and now.

This nubby yummy sweater from Cupshe is $30(!) and screaming my name for Fall:

And that’s it. Thank you all for indulging me. Also, if I said I wasn’t celebrating my birthday for the whole month of August, I’d be lying.

Love to love youuuuuu,

Listen. Eat. Wear. See. Read. Repeat.

LISTEN: “Why Do We Fight” by case/lang/veirs

Just, yes.

EAT: Burger King’s new Mac ‘n Cheetos

Mac 'n Cheetos | Covet Living

What? Yesterday was National Junk Food Day… PS, funny story: Last week my husband and I made a healthy, delicious dinner and were patting ourselves on the back, when quietly my husband said, and I mean barely audible, “Today I stopped by Burger King and got the new Mac ‘n Cheetos.” I was stunned. Who is this man I married? But then he said they were really, really good, and the trashy version of me who resides deep in my bones yelled at me to try them. And I will. Soon.

WEAR: Target “dv Gabi Gladiator Sandals”/ $39:

Dying over these shoes this summer. I wear them every single day. And they look and feel 3x expensive.

SEE: OJ: Made in America

Think you know the whole story? This 5-part series is a completely gripping look at his life and of the murder… in a way you’ve never seen, I promise.

READ: “One True Loves” by Taylor Jenkins Reid

One True Loves by Taylor Jenkins Reid | Covet Living

Who wants a beach read? Or if you’re landlocked, a reservoir or man-made lake read (what up Hoosier friends?!). This might be it. It’s the story of a woman unexpectedly forced to choose between her husband she’s long thought dead and the fiancé who’s finally brought her back to life.

Happy Friday, lovelies. I’m off to Temecula today for a friend’s birthday weekend, and Steph… well, she’s in Colorado… visiting a *cough* veryspecialfriend…
