Congrats Jen!! I have emailed you! Please email me back within two days or I have to choose a new winner! $100 Gift Card Giveaway!! Great Tibi Dresses!

If you are looking for great designer clothing is the place to be! They offer a huge variety of amazing designer pieces from all of your favorite designers.

Some of the great designers that shopbop features includes: Free People, D&G, 7 for all Mankind, Herve Leger, Tory Burch and so much more!

Some of my favourite items include Tibi dresses, their great handbag selection and their plush leggings!

Shopbop sale items are also great because you get great items at even more discounted prices! Right now they have a huge winter sale where you can get 30%, 50% and even 70% off!! I took a quick peek and there are so many great items that are under $50!!

Here are my picks of the items that you can get with your $100 Gift Card:

I'm digging these great Marc by Marc Jacobs Tonal Sunglasses ($87.19) because spring is right around the corner and that means beach season is upon us! While I may not be quite beach ready at least I will look fab with these great sunnies in my beach bag!

Wrap bracelets are huge right now! And I for one have embraced the trend by stacking away. That's why I had to add this great Gorjana Graham Triple Strand Leather Wrap Bracelet ($97.00)!

Felix Ray offers this great fun and flirty Love Letter Clutch ($93.34) that I can see being used for everything from when you make a quick coffee run in the morning to when you want a fun night on the town

ThisWoodford & Co Love Child Top was originally $220.00 and now it is only $66.00! I think that this is a great shirt that can work well in the office (how cute would this look with a high waisted pencil skirt) or throw it on over a pair of sequin leggings and killer heels for an easy going out look.

Everyone knows that you need a little black dress because of it's versatility and I love LBDs like the next girl but I want something with edge that will set me apart. The rocker chic back of this Alice+Olivia Grody Mesh Back Dress ensures that you will look as hot going as you do when you enter a room. It was originally $242.00 but is now only $72.60

As much as a girl needs a LBD she also needs something fun! And what can be more fun than sequins? This amazing Leyendecker Metamorphic Dress is perfect to let you shine. I love the contrast of the belt. This is currently on sale for$98.47 and it was originally $320.00

As you know one person will win a $100 gift card to that will be perfect for adding a great piece or two to your spring wardrobe!

Tick Tock by James Patterson Book Review

I am a huge James Patterson fan! All it took was one book and I am hooked for life! I swear it's like a drug I literally think about reading a Patterson book if I don't finish it and I can't sleep when I'm immersed in the pages of his latest thriller. Hey but I'm not alone in my addiction to James Patterson's addicting thrillers in fact his bio speaks for itself:

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977, James Patterson's books have sold more than 180 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. Mr. Patterson also writes the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels, set in San Francisco, and the top-selling New York detective series of all time, featuring Detective Michael Bennett.

Tick Tock is the latest book in the series that depicts Michael Bennett and his lovable family. Here is a description of the book from the Hachette Book Website:

NYC's #1 detective, Michael Bennett, has a huge problem - the Son of Sam, the Werewolf of Wisteria, and the Mad Bomber are all back. The city has never been more terrified!

A rash of horrifying crimes rips through the city, throwing it into complete chaos and terrorizing everyone living there. Immediately it becomes clear that they are the work not of an amateur but of a calculating, efficient, and deadly mastermind.

The city calls on Detective Michael Bennett, pulling him away from a seaside retreat with his ten adopted children, their beloved nanny, Mary Catherine, and his grandfather. Not only does it tear apart their vacation, it leaves the entire family open to attack.

Bennett enlists the help of a former colleague, FBI Emily Parker. As his affection for Emily grows into something stronger, his relationship with Mary Catherine takes an unexpected turn. All too soon, author appalling crime leads Bennett to a shocking discovery that exposes the killer's pattern and the earth-shattering enormity of his plan. From the creator of the #1 New York detective series comes the most volatile and most explosive Michael Bennett novel ever.

My Review:

Seriously I don't think Patterson could ever write a novel that is boring. As you read the different series you really get to know the main character and their families so well! I have read all the books in the Micheal Bennett series and I'm so happy that I got to review Tick Tock.

This is the 4th book in James Patterson's Michael Bennett series and as soon as it arrived at my door I had to read it! I mean I couldn't put it down until I was done! Luckily it was a Saturday so I could stay up late to finish it!

The plot had so many wonderfully surprising twists, that it kept me wanting to read more and more - what Patterson reader's tend to call the just-one-more-chapter syndrome! Tick Tock is a race against the clock...someone has a mission to reenact crimes of history and they are targeting Micheal Bennett. And to make matters worse he's in the middle of a vacation with his ten children!! As a New York City Detective vacations are few and far between and it was interesting to see how he managed to juggle the two.

Micheal's life is further complicated in the fact that he is caught up in a romantic with Emily Parker, the FBI agent he has worked with in the past and is currently in NYC to help with the current case and Mary Catherine who happens to be his children's nanny!! Definitely complicated!

The final showdown is intense and you won't beleive what goes down! My heart was pounding and I won't tell you what might or may not happen but what I will tell you is that it's a great read!

I would definitely recommend Tick Tock or any other James Patterson book for that matter! Thanks to Brad and The Hachette Book Group for providing me with a copy to review!

*Disclosure: Please note that I was sent this book from Hachette Book Group in order to conduct this review and no other monetary compensation was provided

Falling In Love With: Miss Lucy's Monograms Review

I know that Valentine's Day is over but hey I want to still celebrate! If you are looking for a unique gift idea or simply want to make sure that you stand out from the crowd you should check out the great items that are available at Miss Lucy's Monongrams! Hint hint Mother's Day is just around the corner and you can get your gifts early this year.

Miss Lucy's Monograms is a great shop that has some great products that can be personalized with your initals or monograms! I love the idea of personalization because hey no one can argue that something is theirs when it has you name or initials on it! It literally brings me back to my younger days when me and my sisters would fight over things and when one person tried to take another person's toy they would say "It doesn't have your name on it"!!

The great thing about Miss Lucy's Monograms is their super affordable prices! They have some great deals on items that can be used in your everyday life and many of her items are even further discounted. You should check out the Closeout Section of her site because there are some insane deals to be had!

Another great thing is that monogramming is free!! That's so great because some sites offer monogramming with an additional fee. The monogramming options are endless at Miss Lucy's Monograms with lots of different colour options as well as design options.

Check out Miss Lucy's Monograms for great gift ideas or if you just want to treat yourself!

My Review:

I was so lucky to receive the lovely Red and Black Polka Dot Large Tote from Miss Lucy's Monograms to do a review on!

I loved the wrapping! It was so bright and cheerful and I loved the paw print sticker.

I decided to go with the white thread because I felt that it would let the monogramming pop more and I was right! The monogramming is beautiful and the tote is quite strong and sturdy.

The tote closes with a tie string so it allows for easy access and it also has a built in coin purse. This tote would be perfect for carting to the market and this would get rid of your need for plastic bags. But if you were carrying such a fashionable tote you wouldn't want to be carrying plastic bags anyways. The tote is large enough to accommodate all of your groceries and the handles are nice and plush so that you won't hurt your shoulder!

I have just picked up knitting and I find that this is the perfect bag to store all of my yarn, needles and knitting books! It's great to have such a large tote to store my things so they won't get lost or tangled!If you love the items featured on Miss Lucy's Monograms then check back later for a great giveaway!!

Falling In Love With: DownEast Basics Giveaway

If you are looking for fashionable and affordable clothing then a perfect place to get stylish and comfortable clothing is from DownEast Basics.

Everything featured on DownEast Basics would work perfectly for casual wear when you are out and about, but can also be a great transitional piece that can be worn in an office setting. I'm so in love with their adorable cardigans! The detailing on them like ruffles, flowers and bows ensures that they won't be confused for your grandmas!

Although I love their pieces I think that the thing I love most about DownEast Basics is the fact that everything is so affordable! You can get quality pieces without breaking the bank and the most expensive item on their site is under $60!! With spring and summer just around the corner, DownEast Basics has you covered with great skirts, dresses, swim separates and even awesome accessories!

My Review:

When I found out I got to discover what great items DownEast Basics has to offer I was so thrilled! They have such a great selection of drop dead cute cardigans and flirty dresses.

I finally settled upon the Bling Boot Fit Jeans. I love me a little bling so I knew that these jeans would be perfect for me!! The Bling Boot Fit Jeans retails for only $54.99 but the details and the quality makes it look like a pair that is worth so much more

I received the jeans and unfortunately they were a bit too baggy on me I guess I should have went with the size 0 instead of the size 2! But it wasn't a problem since I decided to give them to my mom instead! Luckily they fit her really well and she looked great in them!

I love the detailing on the back pocket, with a great design embroidered on the back pocket, and how the pockets have a giant rhinestone button on the flap. If you're like me and you weren't blessed with junk in the trunk, jeans with flap pockets are an essential to making you look like you have a bit more curves!

As you can see the front of the jeans also has great whiskering detail and I like that the jeans are a dark rinse. I have given up light coloured jeans in favor of darker washes since darker washed jeans are a tad bit more sophisticated. The jeans also has a great white stitching in the inside of the jeans which adds for a nice contrast!

The Giveaway:

One very lucky winner will win either the Bling Jeans that I got to review or their choice of item from DownEast Basics New Arrivals section! There are some amazing pieces!!

This giveaway is only open to residents of the US! This giveaway will end on March 11th
