Tobi Lilac Ruched Bodycon Dress

I think this is my favorite of my three new Tobi dresses!  I love the wrap bust, and I think that the wrap keep things more in place and secure in spite of this being a sexy, low cut neckline. No need for the double-sided tape!

The color is a beautiful grey-ish lilac, but this dress also comes in olive.  
This dress has no zippers so you just slip it on and off.  I am wearing a size small, and the fit is very good.  I am glad I went with a size small, even though a medium would probably make it over my hips a little easier. 

This is a gorgeous date-night dress for just $32.00!

White Tropical Print Jumpsuit

I bought this jumpsuit in a size small.  The fit is great!  The legs could have been just about an inch shorter, and this would be even more perfect. This jumpsuit is such a cute addition to my wardrobe, and not like anything else I already owned.  Everyone loved it when I wore it out last week.  The fabric feels comfortable, and stretchy, and it's not too thin or see-though. The suit just slips on with no zippers or buttons.  

This is a must have for summer, and it's just $16.99!

Black Lace Jacket

I ordered this lace jacket in a size medium.  The fit is pretty good, though the sleeves are a little long.  I could have probably gone with a size small. I am 119 pounds, 5'2" and my measurements are 32B/26/38.  Even though the jacket is lace, it provides some warmth, making it great to wear during mild weather.  The lace is soft, and stretchy, not scratchy at all.  I like the length of the jacket, and the high -low hem.  This is a piece that can be dressed up or down, depending on what else you wear it with.

This jacket also comes in white and blue, and is $18.99.

Red Ruched Bodycon Dress

This dress is super sexy, and bold!  I love the ruching, and the color.  This dress also comes in rose, taupe and black.

One of the things I love about dresses with deep v necks like this one is that I have even more options for necklaces.  It's actually deep enough for this super long necklace I'm wearing!  I would recommend double-sided tape for this dress, just to make sure no accidents happen while you're wearing it.  It's definitely a dress for those that want a bold look.

I am wearing a size small, and even though I have larger hips, the fabric is very stretchy so there was no need to size up just to accommodate them.   The dress comes in size XS to Large and it's just $29.00!

Best Choice Products 4-Piece Wicker Sofa Set Review

This outdoor furniture set by Best Choice Products is ideal for my Tiki Bar!

It comes with a flat wrench and an Allen wrench to assemble the four pieces of furniture:  a loveseat, two chairs, and a coffee table.  It also comes with a four-page, 8 1/2 by 11 inch instruction booklet, with diagrams to show how to assemble the parts.

The small parts are nuts, bolts, and washers.  The nuts and washers are all the same size.  There is one size of bolts for the sofa and chairs, and another size for the bolts that hold the coffee table together.

It took me twenty minutes to unpack all the parts.  It then took me forty-five minutes to assemble one of the chairs.  Then I started using my husband's drill and Allen-wrench bit.  It took me two and a quarter hours to assemble the set on my front lawn, with a little help from my husband. If you use only the tools the furniture comes with, I think this set would probably take 5 hours to put together.  Pace yourself!

Each item is remarkably light-weight, especially for their size.  They look like wicker or rattan, but are a dark brown, plastic imitation, with tan cushion covers zipped up on rectangular pillows.

Each pillow is pre-assembled, and comes individually, hygienically sealed in a plastic bag.  There are two sizes for the pillows:  large, to sit on, and a smaller size for the back rests.  They are remarkably comfortable!

The loveseat has plenty of room for me and my husband, and perhaps a small child in between us.  The chairs are large enough to comfortably accommodate a two-hundred fifty pound adult.

The coffee table is deceptively strong, and can serve as a bench to sit on.  There is a metal panel and metal crossbars hidden on the underside of the table top, which appears to be mere wicker.

I am very pleased with this furniture set.  It is well worth the two and a quarter hours it took me to assemble it!

Red Sheath Dress

I ordered this dress in red and a size medium.  The fit is pretty much perfect, except that under the arms the side seam sticks out a little bit.  I don't really consider that to be much of an issue, though.   I love all the silver sparkle detail on the front of this dress!  It makes it perfect for a date night or other special event.  The fabric is stretchy, and not too thin.  The dress zips up the back for the perfect fit, too.

This dress is $33.99 and comes in three other colors.

I have been using this Swissvita Eye Cream for a few weeks, now.  The main thing I have noticed while using it, is that it seems to help with my dark circles and puffiness.  That is pretty big for me, and I am happy with the results!

Rob Roy Plaid Flannel Jacket

I ordered this top in a size small.  The fit is pretty good, though the sleeves could be just a tad smaller.  I like that this sweater/jacket can be dressed up or down.  This is very cute for fall and winter.  I love the gold accents on the shoulders, it's a cute way to add a little glamour to plaid flannel.  It is nice and warm, too.  It's also longer than I was expecting, which I like.

The price is just $12.09!

Best Choice Products Dining Set Review

This table and four chairs set comes with all the tools necessary to assemble them:  a small wrench and an Allen wrench.  It also comes with an 8 1/2 by 11 inch sheet with several diagrams, which indicate which nuts and bolts to use to assemble the parts.  There is also a list of parts, which are labeled with letters of the alphabet.  The small parts (nuts and bolts) come in sealed plastic compartments, which are part of one, long, sealed, red plastic bag.

It took me and my husband fifteen minutes to assemble the table.  It took another twenty-five minutes to assemble the first chair.  After that, I borrowed tools from my father to assemble the other chairs, while my husband continued to tighten nuts and bolts with the tools that came with the set.  It took us a total of one hour and fifteen minutes to assemble the table and all four chairs.

The pieces of furniture consist mostly of metal tubes, held together by welding, and by nuts and bolts after assembly.  The table top is wooden, and the seats of the chairs are upholstered with what feels like sheep skin.  They seem remarkably sturdy for their price. The only thing that I was not able to do was insert that last bolt to attach the padded seats to the chairs, for some reason there was one on the chair that did not match up.  That being said, the chairs still feel sturdy and I don't see the need for the fourth bolt.

The table top is almost four feet long (46 inches), and almost a yard wide (32 inches), and thirty-one inches high.  It's about an inch thick.  The seats of the chairs are low enough for an adult to sit comfortably with their legs under the table.  Armless, their backs are a yard high.  The seats are 18 by 16 1/2 inches. 

The set looks modern and elegant, and is an excellent deal!  This would really be ideal for a small dining room area.  It's the perfect size for a small apartment.

I ordered this jumpsuit in a size small.  The fit is pretty much perfect.  This suit is made to just pull on and off.  The fabric is stretchy, so it's pretty easy to get on, and there's no need for a zipper.  This jumpsuit is fun because it's not like anything else I already have in my closet.  The length is pretty good, but I needed to wear a bit of a heel so the legs would not touch the ground.

This jumpsuit is just $17.99 and comes in three other colors!

This is the first lace front wig I have even owned or worn.  I am really happy with the way it looks.  I have had many other regular wigs, and my husband says this is his favorite because it looks the most natural.  I think it looks a lot like real hair, too.  The cut is flattering, and I think this is going to be my new favorite wig.  The hair feels soft, and good quality so I am hoping it resists tangling.

For just $30 I think this wig is a great deal.

Blue Floral Cold Shoulder Dress

I ordered this dress in a size small, and it is plenty big!    What I like about this dress is that it can be worn as a cold shoulder dress, or a regular strap dress, like I decided to wear it, so it's two styles in one!  The print is very pretty, and the fabric is a nice quality,  it did not seem to wrinkle, which is great.  The straps were very long, but luckily they are adjustable so I shortened them a lot.

This dress is just $15.99 and also comes in white.

Orange and Blue Print Maxi Dress

My family and I decided to do some home decor shopping in North Carolina today.  I picked out a gorgeous rug for my  room, and also some art for the wall.  We went to Roses in Oxford, which has a great selection of rugs and even better prices.  I love Roses!

My bag that I'm wearing in these photos is from Roses, too!  I loved how well is matched my dress, which I picked up on sale at Dollar General last year.  I am linking to some similar dresses at the end of this post.

Has any of you ever shopped at Roses?
