I was thinking about doing a currently post that you see every once in a while but then I figured I'd do a "coveting" post instead. I'll probably do the currently post next week, if you're disappointed, haha. These are all items I really want but for one reason or another I haven't had a chance to get it. 

1. Tarte Poppy Picnic Limited Edition Palette 

I love it when Tarte comes out with new palettes, in fact they have another brand new one out right now that I want to but it's exactly like the Rainforest After Dark palette that I already have so I'll "settle" for this one. I love the subtle eye colors and Tarte's blush is my absolute favorite. 

2. Accuquilt Go! Baby Fabric Cutter

I have been lusting after this cutter for months. I made the mistake of not buying it when it was on sale for $89.00. I just assumed it would go back on sale easily. A few months later, it's still sitting at the $129.99 price. I have a great quilt idea that I want to make using the circle pattern from this set and my fingers are itching to buy this and make it. 

3. Maskcara Custom Palette

I would love to buy this but I can't justify the $42 price tag for two reasons: 1. I'm an amateur at highlighting and contouring and I have tons of bronzer and highlighter products already and 2. I'm not a fan of cream products at all. I'd have to really get better at HAC and get more acclimated to cream products before I splurged on this. 

4. The perfect purse. 

There's no link or picture to this yet because I haven't found it. I can't explain what I'm looking for. I need a cute purse that is big enough to hold all my junk but not big enough that I can shove 3 books in it (my back can't take much more!). Right now I'm using a Michael Kors purse I borrowed from my mom and it's a very nice purse but it's not me. If you have any suggestions for good, inexpensive purses let me know, I'm on the lookout for "the one". 

Have you been coveting anything lately?


  1. Ahh the perfect purse, ever elusive! ;) If you find it, let me know!

  2. Purses are so hard, aren't they? I use one I bought last year and I absolutely love it. It suits my needs very well both when I'm traveling and just day to day and has held up awesomely. My wallet, sunglasses, camera, and makeup fit inside, my train pass and other stuff fits in the zip pocket, my phone in the front, and a book in the back! It was pricey but worth every penny.

  3. I've spent some money on purses (not too much, but enough). Yet, I find myself picking up a messenger bag style purse that I got at Target probably five or six years ago and using that way too often.

  4. I pretty much change the purse I use every day. I get bored easily. I was in Target the other day, and they had some really cute ones? Do you have a specific shape/type/brand you're looking for?

    Looooove the subtle colors in the Tarte palatte!!

  5. Oooooo, have you ever been to Charming Charlie's? It's like Claire's Boutique for grown-ups! They have TONS of cute bags in all shapes and sizes!! Not exactly MK, but not the MK price tag, either!! I have been looking for a new bag, too, except I want a huge one!! I want one with room for my lap top!

    1. I have heard of Charming Charlie's but I haven't been there yet. I hear its great!!

  6. I'm trying to find the perfect purse too!!! So far I have not.

  7. I love Vera Bradley for bags. They have some really cute stuff, and you can get GREAT deals.

  8. I have been using a Coach cross body bag I
    Bought at Marshalls in black. I love it. The bigger
    My bag, the more I stuff in it. This holds my essentials
    But no books. I travel by car, no public transportation, so
    I do not need that much room.
    Love, SMD's Momma

    1. I always carry a book with me. You never know when you'll be just sitting around! But it definitely makes for a back breaking bag.
