KIT & KABOODLE: Amazon Summer Finds

THIS DRESS IS THE CUTEST and so comfortable. It runs true to size – I am wearing A MEDIUM.

Casual, easy to throw on, everyday dress! True to size – I am a medium!

YETI BACKPACK for the summer WIN!!! Perfect for the pool, beach, picnic, etc. I love that its structured and stands on its on and KEEPS THINGS TRULY COLD. I have zero free hands, so the backpack feature is essential.

Another easy to throw on outfit that you can dress up or down! True to size! I am a MEDIUM.

You know my obsession with these PJs. True to size – the twins are in 3Ts and have room!

KITTYMILLS.COM IS 1 TODAY!!

KITTYMILLS.COM IS 1 TODAY!!

Thank you Facebook Memories for reminding me that one year ago today I launched my blog and shared my fun little passion project with friends and family! It has been a delight sharing with you all (even if it is not nearly as often as I would like because #life) and having this creative outlet has been a total treat.

Major takeaways from the first year as a very part-time blogger:

  1. WordPress is still very confusing to me.
  2. I am 1000% addicted to Amazon.com.
  3. Helping even one reader – in big and/or small ways – is so satisfying.
  4. My friends and family and network are just THE BEST.
  5. I have NO IDEA how full blown bloggers do it.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for following along! More to come over the next year ๐Ÿ™‚ CHEERS!!!!

KIT & KABOODLE: Mexico Vaca Essentials

KIT & KABOODLE: Mexico Vaca Essentials

WHAT a fun few days my real estate group just had in Cancun! We set out on a mission to sell $80 million dollars in houses in 2019 and our boss lady incentivized the goal with a trip to Mexico for the team if we delivered. Spoiler: WE DID IT, she delivered, and eight of us spent Tuesday-Friday in the sunshine and salt water.

When we moved, I packed a separate container of bathing suits, cover ups, dresses, flip flops, etc, etc, etc because I knew I had a few warm weather trips on the calendar that would happen while we were still living at my mother-in-laws before we were unpacked at the new house.

Sadly, I cannot find it anywhere (!!!) and I assume its in the deep depths of our storage unit. Happily, online shopping allows for quick, efficient, and affordable shopping and I did one order from AMAZON PRIME, another order from SHEIN and then supplemented with some extra options from a few girlfriends (THANK YOU Amy, Shannon and Anne).

I am linking the items from my order below for anyone interested! I will also include sizing and fit details. I also will have a highlight on my Instagram that shows them on me vs. a model (LOL!). Of course reach out on Instagram (@kitty.mills) if you have any questions or issues!

PORTABLE 12 HOUR CHARGER

Quick note – I am obsessed with this and we ALL used it throughout the trip. When you are barely in your room and traveling, this is so nice to have so you don’t worry about your phone dying. AND I love that you just plug into the wall to charge vs. needing to charge it on yet another charger that I end up misplacing. SO EASY! Highly recommend. AND we used it for the speaker since there are multiple types of chargers on it (would work for a kids Kindle Fire Tablet etc!).

Kit & Kaboodle: FALL 2019 CHAPTER II

Kit & Kaboodle: FALL 2019 CHAPTER II

Because one was just not enough, here is a second installment of Fall Fashion Finds from my mecca, Amazon.com! ALL of these finds are under $25!!! Click on the product title to shop. I included my feedback on each item under the picture and as always, find me on Instagram @kitty.mills for questions/comments/shares! CHEERS TO FALL Y’ALL!

BATWING HALLOW KNIT SWEATER

This is a touch more exciting than a “regular” sweater which is fun for a night out or a way to spice up an outfit. Other reviewers mentioned that it was not as oversized as it appears on the model, so I ordered a Large and it is BIG. A medium would have been better. So, if you are in between sizes, I would size down! During the day you can wear a tank underneath and then at night a bralette or something of that nature would be cute!

ROSE GOLD MARBLE APPLE WATCH BAND

My sister-in-law, KC, had this on and it went from want to must have when I found out it was less than $20 on Amazon. This is super cute and dresses up your watch while remaining neutral. Obsessed! Thanks KC!

CHEETAH PRINT CARDIGAN SWEATER

There are several versions of this available which include different colors and details. I ordered the gray with buttons, but have my eye on the tan without buttons for a future order. This runs true to size – I got a large.

CABLEKNIT SWEATER WITH ROUNDED HEM

This is even better in person! The quality is awesome and the sweater is a nice substantial material without being itchy or overly hot. I have been waiting for more of a brisk day to wear it, but I loved it when I tried it on. There are other color options, but I love me some gray! This also is true to size – I got a large. It has a long length and would be perfect with leggings!

PEARL HOOP EARRINGS

Pearls are my favorite. Hoops are my favorite. Put them together and BOOM! We are in LOVE! These are very lightweight and look awesome in person. Such a great find for around $10!

WHITE + BLACK STRIPED VENT TUNIC

This is a piece that you could throw on with leggings for just about anything you have going on. It was perfect to travel in given the material weight, the cut and the look ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have a large but could also probably have gone with a medium, so pretty true to size!

THANK YOU FOR READING. You have no idea how much I appreciate it. CHEERS CHEERS CHEERS!
