Green Seed and Newdress

4:00 AM

And here are some Instagram snaps if you didn't see them already.

Sunglasses:  Newdress// Cardigan:  Newdress // Hat:  Ralph Lauren (gifted from my blogger friend Mel) // Leggings:  TK Maxx (Poland, old) // Tank:  Ralph Lauren // Birkenstocks:  Zappos // Bag:  Kate Spade (Macy's)

If you follow my Instagram (@jerseygirltexanheart) you have already seen my picture with my awesome milkshake from Green Seed a few weeks ago.  For those of my fellow Jersey residents, Green Seed is located in Denville, NJ.  They make a variety of shakes and smoothies.  I decided to go with the soy milk, mango, and honey milkshake.  My mom loves bubble tea so she got the passion fruit cold bubble tea, and my dad got a soy milk, raspberry (I don’t remember what other fruits), and honey smoothie.  All three of our drinks were DELICIOUS.  I wanted to buy another one because mine was so tastey.  They make everything on the spot and there are lots of places to sit down and wait if you don’t like standing.  We also bought some of the Asian goodies that were on the wall when you first walk in.  The ramen noodle chips were actually really delicious.  The inside itself was very inviting and had a contemporary style.  Extremely clean and I really loved it there.  No, I was not paid for this review, I’m writing about it all on my own because of the great experience that I had.  If you’re in NJ or in the Denville area I recommend that you try Green Seed.  It’s right next to Denville Dairy on Main Street so it’s easy to find.

Now moving on to my outfit.  I recently bought my first Kate Spade bag.  I normally don't like small bags, but I don't know what it was about this particular one.  I was drawn to it!  I received the sunglasses and cardigan from Newdress.  I have been wearing these sunglasses every day; I’m absolutely in love with them.  I’ve been slowly incorporating the cardigan into my wardrobe because it’s starting to get a little colder in the mornings and nights.  I wanted to go for a very different style than I’m usually used to.  I definitely had to put on a bright red lip and I’ve been living in my Birks ever since I got them, as I’m sure y’all have noticed haha.  I seriously wear them every chance I get.  I also have to be pretty innovative with my clothing because since I’ve been redoing my whole room some of my clothes are packed up, or I just can’t find half of my things.  Let me tell you, when you live in a room for 22 years you tend to collect a lot of stuff that you don’t even know you have.  I have safe places for a lot of my memorable things like the book I made with my grandpa which was made up of regular paper, staples, and stick figures drawn by yours truly when I was 7 years old.  The hard stuff in my room is done (painting, moldings, trims, etc.) not it’s just putting everything back into my room and organizing it because I want to start over with this new room, and before it wasn’t very organized. 

As for an update on my room since I know I’ve been talking about it a lot.  I’ll be uploading pictures as soon as I’m 100% finished.  I bought a wall unit from Ikea a few weekends ago that has so much storage and you can actually customize how you want the storage to look like (it’ll make more sense when I upload pictures) and I scored it for $199!  I was so excited when I saw the price.  Leave it to Ikea to have amazing prices.  I can’t wait to show the final look of my room.  I’m loving it and I don’t want to leave my room ever!  This might also be because I’m super proud of how it’s turning out.  Now I just need a TV and a few more things and my room is set.  Then I can start to finish my balcony which is attached to my room.  It was an addition onto the house from the previous owner and it was never finished correctly so we finished it enough to have it look somewhat presentable, but now that I’m getting more into remodeling (thanks HGTV) I want to finish it the way I like it so that I have a little spot for myself when I just need to relax.  Sometimes a little bit of fresh air can go a long way.  Even in the fall time it’ll be nice to sit down drink some hot coffee and be snuggled up with my sweatshirt, sweatpants, and some slippers.  Or even having girl talk with my mom.  Plus, it doesn’t really start getting really cold until October.
