Sam Edelman LEOPARD loafer GIVEAWAY

Patchwork

Wednesday, September 28, 2011


I know you wanted European pictures... and I really want to give them to you, but in the best way possible. I'm trying to design some awesome posts around my trip so I'll have them up and ready starting Monday... I hope you all can wait that long... I know you can do it! 

The BF bought me this jacket for our two year anniversary. He took me on a shopping spree of sorts. I went into J. Crew with a mission and came out with this winner. It was on sale, with an extra 30% off, and then I threw in my student ID and we scored big. I believe the BF even said, "Wow, you really do know how to do this". I'm pretty sure it was the student ID discount that was the icing on the cake. 

I had been dying for lucite framed glasses. I scanned flea markets, Etsy, eBay... nada. And then, one glorious day, I'm scrolling through Gilt Groupe and, voila, here they are. I loves them... and by loves, I mean in love, head over heels, flowers and chocolates on the second date, in love. Marriage to the glasses is the only next logical step (wow, I need help). 





Remember when my day's had highlights... THEY'RE BACK!

Highlights of my Day Include:

1) Eating a DELICIOUS knish 
2) Being recognized at my local Dunkin' Donuts (no, not for my stardom, for my consistent... and always dependable, order)
3) Booking my tickets to visit Stanford for work
4) Watching Teen Mom 
5) Eating Rags to Riches (I was quickly reprimanded at work for saying this, "Um, Gaby? Are you serious? It's Rice to Riches".

Leopard. Loafers. Oh and they're free... right HERE.

P.s. I forgot to mention, the bag is Chloe.

These are a Few of My Favorite European Things

Liebeskind Berlin 

If only I could stay in Europe and shop forever. A little preview of what I bought in Europa. The clothes there are just beyond. 

My mom and I bought the same boots... we're cool like that. I saw her trying them on and I had to check them out for myself. We bought them in Berlin, and they're made in Berlin, so that was an added bonus.

From Left to Right: Carin Wester, Cos, River Island, Oasis 

Cos 

Sandro, *by Second Female

Do you peep that AMAZING peter pan collar... and it's leopard print. 

Starbucks cup, Cos collar, Beadies necklace, G house decoration

My mom collects these cups from wherever she goes. That's to show how addicted she is to Starbucks... no matter where in the world we are, she needs her Starbucks iced coffee. It's actually quite a good idea (the cups, not the coffee... I'm a Dunkin' girl... sorry mama). It's a nice reminder of where you've been. I only buy them from places I love. So far I have two; Miami and Amsterdam. 

P.S. Yes, I did find the lone Dunkin' in Berlin 

Beadies is a bead store in Amsterdam. It's not the bead store I was searching for, but it was definitely worth the look. My mom bought me the necklace above. It's simple, but I just couldn't get my eyes off that stone.

Did you like the leopard collar on my sweater? Well I'm giving away LEOPARD print Sam Edelman shoes, check it out

Back to Life, Back to Reality

Sunday, September 25, 2011


That's right ladies and one gentleman (if there are even that many men reading this blog)... I'm back!! The trip was fantastic (to say the least) and I have many pictures to show you. Let's start out with a little preview, shall we? 

Above is Papa Monsanto and myself journeying to Berlin. It was a long day so you can tell how enthusiastic I was about having my picture taken. That's one happy camper folks.


You really expected me to go all the way to Europa and not shop till I drop? Here I am in Berlin giving a huge thumbs up to the mall across the street. I am the number one helper of all economies across the globe. 


Tweeting away in our posh hotel in Amsterdam. As you can tell I was mildly obsessed with wearing my blue fluffy sweater. Mostly because it annoyed my parents so much with it's constant shedding... muahaha  (I'm cruel). 

And to answer your question, no, I did not wear this sweater everyday of the trip. 

I'm going to do a little Gaby tour guide of Berlin and Amsterdam. By Gaby tour guide I really mean where to shop till you drop, oh, and also eat till you feel beyond bloated (with goodness of course). 

I hope you're excited to see that I have not lost my sarcasm and great sense of wit. Glad to be back my friends, glad to be back.

OMG guys you thought I forgot about the GIVEAWAY winner? Don't worry it will be announced tomorrow along with a brand new giveaway. I feel so generous as of late. I've been called saintly before, not gonna lie.
