Firmoo Glasses Review & Giveaway / hellorigby

Leather, Stripes, Firmoo Glasses, & Giveaway

22nd November 2014

Do you ever sit down to do something, and just come up blank? Pretty sure that’s how I’m feeling today. Not sure if it’s because I missed my coffee this morning, my pounding right side headache that made a reappearance, or what, but I’m just feeling off my game today.

I sat down to write, and I got nothing. It’s like radio silence in my head.

The only thing I can think of lately is how much I have to do. It’s a week until Thanksgiving, and I’ve got nothing figured out to bring. I’ve also yet to look at any Black Friday ads. This is way out of the norm for me. (Actually, it’s probably better that way… I’m already over budget this month.)

As much as I love blogging, it can really create a never-ending to do list. Between local events, product review pitches, and emails, sometimes I feel like I can’t catch a break. I think what I’ve determined is I have to create my own break – it probably won’t ever come naturally. And while I sometimes think of taking one, I can’t imagine not doing this daily.

Don’t you love when I don’t have a topic so you can read my ramblings?

Anyways, today’s outfits features one of my favorite t-shirts, and a couple of new favorites. The first new favorite is this jacket, but I’m calling it a blazer because it’s far too light to wear as a jacket now. I got this during the Nordstrom clearance sale and I want to wear it with everything.

I also picked up these new Firmoo glasses. They offered me a free pair to try out, and I’m really loving these, despite these frames being totally outside of my comfort zone! I think they’re fun, a little retro, and the quality for the price is on point. They’ve got a whole bunch of free frames here to shop, but they also sent me a bonus code for the month of November for free frames that I’d like to pass onto one of you! Enter the Rafflecopster below, but act quick – this ends in just a few days so you can have time to pick the perfect frames from this list before the code expires at the end of the month!

What I Read November / hellorigby!

What I Read November & Treat Yo Self Link Up!

20th November 2014

I know, I know. I say this every month, but how is November already almost over? Next week is Thanksgiving, and of course my favorite shopping day of the year, Black Friday! I’m excited, but it’s all coming too fast for me. I still haven’t even figured out what I’m making to take to Thanksgiving yet! Eek.

But anyways, since it’s that time of month, I thought I’d update on my reading progress (or lack thereof!) If you remember, I’m trying to read 100 books this year, and that’s not looking so good for me right now. I’m hoping I can kick my reading up a notch over the holidays though. We shall see. But without further ado, here’s What I Read in November:

Holiday Gift Guide: The Gift of an Experience / hellorigby!

Holiday Gift Guide & $175 Giveaway!

14th November 2014

So I know, tis the season. Welcome to the beginning of the bombardment of all the gifts you should be buying for everyone and their sister. Right? Well, I’m jumping on the bandwagon… but I’m going to try to do things a little differently.

Today, I’m going to be sharing gifts that I’ve given before, or if I haven’t given them, have wanted to. You see, I am not a gift traditionalist. As I’ve gotten older, what I’ve realized is that traditional gifts tend to suck. Gift cards to Best Buy, towel sets, random appliances… boringggg. I’m more a fan of giving an experience. I try to think about something that person really wants, but can’t afford to do, or doesn’t feel is worth the “splurge” and do my best to either give it to them (if it’s not cost prohibitive) or help them do it (gift card with as much as I can afford.) So today, I am sharing my top-secret gift ideas with you. Guess they’re not so secret anymore! ;)

3 Ways To Wear a Triangle Scarf / hellorigby!

3 Ways to Wear a Triangle Scarf

13th November 2014

I used to not really wear many scarves. Then I moved to the coldest place I’ve ever lived (Pullman, WA) for school and I about died. Give me all the scarves, I said.

Since then, I’ve added a few new ones each year to my arsenal. They keep my neck warm. They’re cute. They make accessorizing an outfit super easy since you basically don’t need to wear jewelry.

When my friend Stef mentioned she was going to start up her Etsy shop again, I was really excited. I don’t know anyone who has enough time to be able to make me scarves, and there are so many sellers to choose from on Etsy that I get overwhelmed and close the window. She’s really talented, and even offers to make custom pieces!

She sent me over this fun fringy triangle scarf, mentioning that though she loves the style, a lot of her customers just don’t know how to style them. So, challenge accepted. Here are three ways I styled her Autumn Triangle Scarf. Give her some love on Etsy, won’t you? And just for this month, Stef is offering free shipping on anything in her store! Hurry, this offer expires on November 30th!
