I'm on Tumblr!

I always see cute pics on Instagram and Tumblr and I can never blog about them because I'm more than likely NOT home! Sooo I've created a Tumblr just for my love of all things Vera Bradley! Check it out y'all!

I've also been fiddling around a lot with Polyvores, and I made this cute ensemble! Now if I could just snap my fingers and make it real!

Lilli Bell Love (and Sun Valley's cool too)

SO last week Vera released their very cute Summer 2013 prints. I've been plotting on a few things for a while, but I wasn't sure if certain items would be in those prints...namely the Monogrammed Totes.

But as good news would have it, they did! And of COURSE Lilli Bell would be the one to have almost all my favorite colors on it!

Pinks, Greens, Whites. Cute flowers. MY NAME.
What else could a girl ask for??
The only thing about this print is that it's a white background print. Very light, easily dirtied and stained. That's why the Colorblock Tote works for me, because it's heavy on the Dark Pink, it won't get dirty as fast. Sure I can always wash it, but it's too much to want to get this print for a work bag (Remember, I work with kids). This can be an accessory print. The biggest I'll go with the full print is a regular Tote.

Some other things I've got my eye on in Lilli Bell are:
- Wristlet
- Tote
- iPhone 5 Frame Case
- Umbrella in
- Student Agenda
- Pencil Box
- Throw Blanket
- Square Ribbon Board

Now my second fave out of the summer colors is definitely Sun Valley. My sister asked me "Why? It's the total opposite of Lilli Bell! It's darker, and the print just looks heavy!" 


Sun Valley is perfect for an active summer. This year I might be an Overnight Summer Camp Counselor, and I'll need something that I won't have to worry about grass/mud/lake water stains (because lakes are just giant mud puddles, people). The Dark Blue and Deep Orange in this print are PERFECT for that. I can get a little rough with it and it can still look fab. I can have no problems commuting on the hot, sticky train or bus with it, and the children I may work with can get a little grabby with it without me wanting to maul their hands off because they're filthy from playing all day.

Some other things I've been scoping out in Sun Valley are:
- Hipster
- Wristlet
- Backpack
- Stay Cooler
- Small/Large Duffel

Any plans with Vera this summer?

Dreams of Jewelry

I swear VeraObsessed wants me to pass out from shock!

I swear she does!

So that lovely gal posted this on her FB page today and I'm surprised I am still conscious:

That's right, y'all! Vera is making new purty jewelry and cutesy summer keychains!

WHAT are they trying to DO TO ME?!?!

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a sucker for charm bracelets. I had a Juicy Couture problem after college, and it took a while for me to get over it. However, this Bobble Charm Bracelet that I see in Lilli Bell is MINE ASAP do you hear me??? I have a Bangle in Portobello Road and I love it, so I can imagine how much I'll love a pretty pink charm bracelet!

From what I can see, all Summer 2013 colors as well as Plum Crazy and Ribbons will be featured in the jewelry. Since Plum Crazy is in there I'm assuming that maybe the rest of Spring 2013 will be featured too? I don't know anymore info about these pieces right now, but I will sure as heck update as I find out! I can't wait for these babies to come out, just the thought of having that bracelet slays me! I also wonder if they're going to make any necklaces or earrings. Oh the thought makes me dizzy with excitement!

How do you all feel about this?!?!

Pardon me, but there are MAJOR sales going on this weekend from Vera Bradley. Get ye asses to the nearest Vera store, Outlet, or boot up your computer and get on the website for heavens sake!!!!

As excited as I am, I was mad when I saw what was left in Night and Day online. I can see why though, it's a perfect neutral print.

I've already decided that where my money is going. I need a new Vera tote and Lunch Date. My Portabello Road Vera and Lunch Date are getting dirty, and even though I'm cleaning them I know they get dirty really fast (I work with kids. Kids attract dirt like nothing else) so I need a darker print. I'm thinking Very Berry Paisley is the one for me (this paisley thing is starting to grow on me a little. And I DO MEAN a little). But that's online only.

I also plan on going in store and getting a Camellia Tote and an Ellie Blue wristlet. Pray for my wallet, (and I might take pics who knows).

What are you going to do with these sales?!?!

Vera Land meets Disneyland!!!

SO I go on Facebook and I see a post from VeraObsessed that makes me drop dead!

Apparently the folks at the House of Mouse decided to take a trip to Vera Land and set up camp! There will be two ADDITIONAL prints this fall, both Disney inspired and just so darn pretteh!!!!

 So the names of the Vera-Disney lovechild prints are Just Mousing Around and Midnight with Mickey. In the pic above I can spot the Duffel and Hipster in Midnight with Mickey and the Vera tote and Cosmetic Bag in Just Mousing Around.
Left: Just Mousing Around - Right: Midnight with Mickey
Soooooo I'm in love with both, but I could definitely name Midnight with Mickey my fave of the two (which is surprising since I live for the color pink). The minute I started reading the article I freaked out from excitement, then I got mad because I figured I'd have to go to the damn Disney park in Orlando to get my hands on one of these (they're also available at Disneyland in Cali)

Then my rational side kicked in and told me to read on, and aside from eBay, I read that they would be available for online purchase at a later date (I hope "later" doesn't mean 2014 DEER GOD)

Which one is your favorite?!
