Mail Call: BooHoo (But No Crying For Me)

I found myself in bit of a funk one morning this week and I’m pretty positive that my breakfast choice of chocolate brownie and orange juice didn’t help the matters any. I was determined to do better the next day, so I decided to start my day with a green smoothie. I used to make a lot of smoothies but have gotten away from that since starting my new job.

This was my first dive in to the green smoothie world, so I wanted to make sure that I didn’t overdo it. My smoothie contains: pineapple, banana, coconut flakes, spinach, yogurt, milk, and a dash of agave nectar.

I came home after work one night to find that I had received two packages. I love it when I get good mail. My review of the newest Homegrown Collective box will have to wait for another day, but I couldn’t wait to share what I had received from BooHoo. Based out of Manchester, Boohoo is an online retailer that provides fun fashion at an affordable price. My buys:

I first saw this cardigan on Pinterest and knew that I had to have it. I love the print of it. The whole “Aztec” style seems to really be in this fall as I’ve seen a lot of similar items around. On Pinterest, it was paired with a white tank top, jeans, and tall brown boots so I’m sure that I will wear something in that same vein.

I went back and forth over buying this cardigan, but when I thought about how versatile it could be, I decided to bite the bullet. It’s dressy enough that I could get away with wearing it at work, yet simple enough that I can wear it out with my friends when we go out for dinner or something.

This sweater (or rather, jumper) has turned out to be my favorite item. I’m hopefully going down to the beach in the few weeks and I can just envision myself sitting on the beach, all snug in this sweater. While I think that this sweater would look good with a pair of lighter, torn blue jeans (skinny leg – tucked into a short pair of boots), I’ll probably just rock the regular jeans and boat shoes for going on the beach. (Side note: I wore this sweater last night to bed with a pair of black sweatpants and a black tank under it and it made the perfect sleeping outfit on a chilly night.) This was my first time shopping with BooHoo and I’ll definitely visit them again. For the price, the fabric of the items was surprisingly soft and everything seemed well-made. I was notified every step of the way as to the status of my order and for as far as my package had to come, I received it quickly.

One final note: check out these gorgeous peppers that I snagged just before the first frost - jalapenos, scotch bonnet, and hot cherry peppers.
