Hey Hey! It’s Friday!

Another week, another Friday! Mercy me!

Onward!

1. This week flew by! I’m still recovering from the party last week, but at least the house is back to normal!

2. I still can’t believe I have a One Year Old! And I feel like this week Elizabeth has been doing silly, new things! For example, I was down on the floor wiping up the schmuk under her high chair (sigh… my least favorite task). I looked over at Elizabeth, and she had grabbed a section of the paper towel and was wiping the floor too! Adorable! So naturally I had to go to the Dollar Store to buy some things for her very own cleaning kit! (Train ’em young!)

Cleaning up at Cup of Tea

3. It’s finally feeling a little cooler consistently around here! I managed to squeeze in a few walks in the afternoons! Joy!

4. There’s nothing wrong with wearing a dark, berry lip just around the house, right? Is that too much? I hope not, because I’m doing it. I’ve mentioned over and over again that I love the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick in #127. You can see me wearing it MANY times in my recent 30 Outfits in 30 Days post. (Yikes! That was a lot of links!)

5. And then, yay! Remember the giveaway with Tif from Bright on a Budget and Della from Della Devoted? Did you enter? Well we have a winner! Click here to see if you’ve won! If you are the lucky winner,  email me at ktcupoftea(at)gmail.com and I’ll hook you up! Thanks for participating! It was such fun!!!!

Hey Hey! It’s Friday!

Hello hello! Anyone else shocked it’s Friday? I am!

Here’s what I’ve been up to this week!

1. I be draggin’. I’m pooped. Elizabeth’s First Birthday tomorrow can not come soon enough. But it’s been a fun week so far preparing and having family in town! The rest of the family comes tonight and the high events begin tomorrow!

2. Speaking of party planning, I am having a blast planning with my mom. She is amazing! I haven’t had so much fun before “shopping” my house for things to use for our party. We also fussed with my kitchen table, which will be the food area for the party. Here’s our working plan.

3. My mom also managed to just throw together the arrangement over my fireplace. You should have seen what my attempt was first.

4. I managed to squeek out a few fun blog-related things! I’m teaming up with Tif at Bright on a Budget and Della at Della Devoted to do TWO giveaways! My particular favorite is the Naked2 Basics Pallet. You know you want one! Check out the post for details on how to win. (If you’re reading this now because of the giveaway, then hi!! Excited you’re here!)

Falling for Neutrals Giveaway

5. I did my first 6 day recap for the 30 Outfits in 30 Days. I basically loved every single outfit, but this is how I felt about that awesome striped shirt with gold collar!

Love that striped shirt!

Fall Must Haves and a Giveaway | Falling into Basics

I love Fall, especially when it comes to the clothes.

I tend to gravitate towards neutrals and basics in colors like brown/khaki, navy and green. Then I sprinkle in some brighter color (usually in richer tones) in the accessories.

I have a few of my favorite Fall pieces integrated into my 30 Outfits in 30 Days challenge as well as some new-to-me items I mentioned in my Fall Haul video. If you’re on the lookout to update your Fall wardrobe, look for a few of these items in classic shapes, so you can use them each year!

Basic Trench

Striped Top

Riding Boot

Plaid Anything

Scarves in any style!

A red lipstick

Smoky brown eye shadows

Utility Jacket in Army Green

Comfy Knit Pants

Easiest way to update your wardrobe for Fall? Enter the giveaway!

Say what??! A giveaway?

Yep!

I’m teaming up with Della at Della Devoted and Tif at Bright on a Budget to do, not just one, but TWO giveaways!! And seriously, if I was allowed to enter, I totally would, because these items are the perfect accessories to give your Fall wardrobe and makeup collection a serious boost.

First up, we’re giving away an awesome polkadot infinity scarf in a pretty teal color (you know how much I love polkadots!) as well as a long gold tassel necklace with tortoise shell detail. Love it!
