That's MRS. FANCYPANTS to you!

Ever since I was just a wee little sassy girl, I've always loved titles, like Mrs. and Miss. Chances are, it was the countless years I spent reading a fairly crazy amount of Little Miss books, (Little Miss Bossy and Little Miss Chatterbox were my faves, for obvious reasons).

But now I'm an adult, I'm married, and I have boring responsibilities. I am, however, still pretty cool. So this fabulous Mrs. Fancypants Mug from Ashley Brooke Designs is clearly right up my alley!
Here's why I love it:
  1. I am Mrs. Fancypants: I'm a Mrs., I'm fancy, and I wear pants (which often times are somewhat fancy). I didn't like the definition of "fancypants" that the un-fancy Merriam-Webster dictionary had to offer: "overly elegant or refined : la-di-da". Luckily Urban Dictionary had the definition I knew in my heart to be true: "Sophisticated or impressive. See posh." That's moi!
  2. The site's product description rocks: "As the lady of the house, this mug leaves absolutely no question as to how fabulous you are!"
  3. The writing is in pink.
It's too bad that there isn't a male version of this super cute mug. Just kidding, there is!
Meet the Mr. Handsome Mug! It's the perfect mug for your man, but it doesn't outshine the chic, girly version. Love it!

Each of the mugs cost $23. Yes, it is a little pricey, but you can tell that they're very well-made and are beautifully designed. I definitely think they're worth it, simply because these mugs are so darn cute!

If you're like me and want to buy the two mugs together, you can get them both in the Mr. and Mrs. Coffee Mug Set for $42. Honestly, I think the set would make a great gift for any couple (including myself and my husband--hint, hint!).

For those girls who either aren't married, don't fret! There's also a mug for you! The Miss Fancypants Mug is what the young people would call totes adorbs. In all seriousness, I might buy one even though I'm married!

Whether you buy one mug or oodles of 'em, they'll each arrive in an adorable hot pink gift box with gold lettering...très chic, no?

If you're a weirdo who's totally against mugs (who the hell do you think you are?!), or you just want to look at some more cute products, peruse the Ashley Brook Design online store. I promise you'll love everything.

Happy spending!

My TOP EIGHT Chloe + Isabel Jewelry Picks

I recently started selling Chloe + Isabel baubles...and quite frankly I'm in love with almost everything I've seen from them! Everything is so well-made, hypoallergenic, and looks incredibly gorgeous. I'm also a fan of the fact that they cater to a lot of different styles. If you like huge statement pieces, they have the prettiest pieces, hands down. But if you like more dainty jewelry, they have that too. And everything in-between.

Every girl out there should really check out the line. Trust me, you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Below are eight of my absolute fave pieces from the company (you can purchase them, and other items, at my online boutique):

  1. Cushion-Cut Cocktail Ring ($42) - I love love love this ring! It's a great color and it looks super glamorous. This fab cocktail ring comes in size 6, 7, and 8.
  2. Aventine Collar Necklace ($78) - If you're looking for a statement necklace that doesn't completely take over your look, this collar necklace is for you! It looks so chic and is the perfect piece to wear if you want to elevate your ensemble. Also, since black and white has become a trend again (I'm guessing for the 5th time this year), this pop-of-white necklace would really stand out with a black blouse.
  3. Bead + Ribbon Multi-Wrap Bracelet ($48) - I'm really into navy blue lately, so it's no wonder why this gorgeous wrap bracelet is something I'm obsessed with. I've had mine for a couple weeks, and I think I've worn it every single day. It just matches everything, since it's main colors are neutral shades. The bracelet is also adjustable (woohoo for all small-wristed gals like me!). Oh, and you can even wear it as a necklace if you want--it looks fab either way.
  4. Trevi Convertible Statement Earrings ($52) - How stunning are these earrings?! I'm drooling over them. One thing I absolutely love about Chloe + Isabel is that they have a lot of items that can be worn in different ways. These insanely beautiful earrings can be worn two ways: just the top of the earring as a stud, or with the bottom attached to make a great statement earring. Both ways are gorgeous, of course. It's the ultimate work-to-weekend style companion!
  5. Portico Linear Drop Earrings ($38) - Listen to me. You need these earrings. Now. They are just so luxe and beautiful, yet they also look classic and almost simple (in a good way). These earrings are perfect to wear with virtually anything. They look amazing with a fancy little black dress, and also look great paired with jeans and a t-shirt. Win-win!
  6. Leather + Baguette Bracelet ($26) - My mom and I each own one of these metallic must-have leather bracelets, and we absolutely love them! I'm a huge lover of bracelets, and this one is probably my current fave. You can wear it alone, or layer it with other bracelets--either way, this pretty little bracelet definitely brings some sparkle and shine to any look.
  7. Take Heart Pendant Necklace ($28) - This pendant necklace is yet another Chloe + Isabel piece that I own and am obsessed with. It's easy to see why--it's a very pretty, delicate necklace that I think almost anyone would love. It goes with anything and while it is small, the clear crystal on the pendant is just enough bling to attract some attention.
  8. Baguette + Stone Stackable Duo Rings ($48) - I saved the best for last! I'm absolutely loving this ring set. Both of the rings are so elegant and beautiful. Personally, I like to wear them both together, but they also look gorgeous when worn individually. The rings comes in size 6, 7, 8, and 9.

How gorgeous is everything?! I just love it all. And my online boutique has loads more for you to look at. Happy shopping!
