Happy Saturday, everyone!

So I know on Twitter, I keep mentioning that I’m going to do a video blog. Every time I planned to film, something ended up happening. BUT this week, I made sure that nothing stopped me from filming and editing a vlog for you.

To start my kick back (is that a term?) into vlogging, I decided to do one of my favorite videos to watch other vloggers do….

So head on over, subscribe to my channel, and find out WHAT’S IN MY BAG?!


Comment below with what some videos you want to me! I’m thinking about doing a “Chit Chat Get Ready With Me (#GRWM)” video about some exciting news. Let me know if you would want to see that!

My Recent Splurges

The first time my mom and I ever watched Confessions of a Shopaholic, I felt a weird connection. I mean, does anyone else’s heart strings tug from the line, ““A man will never love you or treat you as well as a store. If a man doesn’t fit, you can’t exchange him seven days later for a gorgeous cashmere sweater. And a store always smells good. A store can awaken a lust for things you never even knew you needed. And when your fingers first grasp those shiny, new bags…” Mine does. I mean, hello you preach it Rebecca! –

My little kid self used to walk around the wall with curly haired pigtails in, swinging my purse around taking in the pure bliss that is a shopping mall.

Now this isn’t my confession in shopaholics anonymous or my autobiographical version of Confessions of a Shopaholic, readers. This, however, is the start of a new set of posts I will be starting called “My Recent Splurges.”

“Mumford and Sons,” “Pride and Prejudice,” “Chicago,” Oh My! Find Items Featuring these on “Chicago’s Own” on Etsy!

This is a sponsored post. However, all opinions are my own.

Looking for a new phone case? Possibly even a nicely designed notebook? Or even a nicely designed desktop background? Well, your in luck. Look no further – check out “Chicago’s Own” on Etsy!

Chicago’s Own offers products featuring designs I haven’t really found anywhere else. For example, The shop features items such as popular music Mumford and Sons (like this iPhone case) or “Chicago” (like this notebook). The shop allows you to really express what you like thanks to its variety of rarely designed themed items.

From the Etsy shop, I received a “Pride and Prejudice” phone case featuring the popular quote from the movie – “you have bewitched me body and soul” with the word “LOVE” in all capital letters.

First off, the phone case was very durable. I am not the most gracious, but the phone case never broke or dented when my phone may have taken a little tumble.

I was also a tad apprehensive at first, because the case was white. The color white and I never seemed to mix well because I always would get it dirty. However, never did the case look dirty. It always look immaculate and brand new, even after days of use!

The colors on the case also made it pop. It was very eye catching, which is something I liked a lot. Many people would recognize the case, which would start a conversation about the movie, which led to the novel, and then other novels. I was able to get great book recommendations because of people who recognized the quote and chose to discuss “Pride and Prejudice.”

Another aspect I thoroughly enjoyed from “Chicago’s Own” was the packaging of the phone case. It wasn’t just shoved into an envelope. Here is how it came:

After how great my “Pride and Prejudice” case turned out to be, I just may purchase another case from “Chicago’s Own.” Perhaps the Duck Dynasty one?!
