favorite things with toni
Toni here and today is my turn to share a few of my favorite things with you all. As way of introduction, I am the Shop Manager, which means I keep ShopBeckyHiggins.com filled with product for our amazing customers. I am also the one answering emails relating to your orders. Yep, that friendly person on the other end of that correspondence is moi.
Trying to narrow down this list was not an easy task! Some of my favorite things are not necessarily items you can shop for. For instance, Wendy is one of my favorite things. So is New York City. So is eavesdropping on my three teenagers. But since we are keeping this as a list of favorite things that some may use as gift ideas, I went with what you see here.
KATE SPADE. I love anything by this fantastic designer. Simple. Classic. Lovely. But here is my secret: I never buy anything full price. I shop at the Kate Spade Outlet or the sale section of their website and have gotten some great deals! Because I am on their mailing list, every three or four months I will receive an email with their special 75% off sale. This is my favorite. THAT is how I like to shop!
MAC PERFUME. I walked into this store one day to pick up some eyeshadow and the smell was amazing. I was thrilled to find out that they have their own perfume! I wear it every day and it is by far the most favorite scent I have ever worn. I keep a bottle at home (that apparently I “share” with my daughters – no one told me this!) and I keep a roller ball bottle in my purse for on the go. I get compliments on it all of the time and now have several friends who use it.
TYPO NOTEBOOKS. I love a good notebook, but it needs to be small enough to fit in my purse. I found these at a store called Typo (which is a part of the Cotton On store) when I was on vacation in San Diego last year. It is such a fun store and I fell in love with these. They are the A5 Collegiate Notebook and they come in the cutest styles! The inside is pretty awesome, with four sections of paper separated by pocket dividers. This is perfect as I have one section for work, personal, church, and an extra for miscellaneous notes. As a bonus, there is a little elastic loop to hold your pen. They are not pricey either, which is great. I order them online since there isn’t one of these stores near me. Bummer on that, but yay for online shopping!
ALEX + ALI BRACELETS. I do not wear a ton of jewelry, but I do wear these bracelets everyday! They are dainty and go with everything from jeans and a t-shirt to a dress for church. They all have a very simple charm on them and they have a charm for just about every occasion. You can wear one at a time or several. Doesn’t matter! The ones I have were a gift from a friend, which makes them even more special.
PORTOFINO SHIRTS. I don’t know when I first discovered these shirts from Express, but now I can see that I have a problem. I own 10 of them in all different colors. They are so flattering and just like my bracelets, can be worn everywhere. They go with jeans or with a pencil skirt. Summer or winter. They are classically simple which is why I like them so much.
