I’m Lurving… + Big News & I Need Your Help!

I'm Lurving... Hi.

So, I’ve decided to switch things up a bit and change the “My Favorite Things” series to “I’m Lurving…” because I lurve the word lurve. Its so.. weird. So.. Me. In fact, I have a lot of changes coming soon to ROAWO & I need your help!! [ I’ll talk about this more in a sec.. ]

Now, onto the previously scheduled post. I have a whole list of some seriously-cool “lurves” for y’all this week. First things first, how intense is this crazy succulent garden^^? I found it when I was in San Francisco, casually sipping tea by the Golden Gate, and I had to document it. Y’all know I love succulents. They’re s’cuuute.

Serendipity Fine Lines Print Serendipity Fine Lines Business Cards Do y’all remember my interview with Sarah of Serendipity Fine Lines?? Welp, I got my custom print in a couple of weeks ago, and I absolutely LURVE, LURVE, LURVE it. How freakin’ badass is this Madonna quote? I mean seriously, I’m digging that idgaf vibe ( because who even has the time and energy to gaf … yeah, idgaf ).

Can y’all tell that I also love the word/term idgaf. I esp like saying idgaf instead of the whole ‘I don’t give a fuck,’ because I think its so hilarious for some reason. What a knee-slapper, right?

Click here to read the interview + find out details on where to buy her stuff, links to her social media sites ( for daily pretties ) & a little discount code. Her biz cards are amaze too… #talent.

TSC Frapp on ROAWO TSC Frapp on ROAWO Another thing I’m lurving is The Skinny Confidential’s Vanilla Frap ( sans the crap! ). Back in the middle school days, I was a frapp-fanatic. I remember waltzing into the mall Starbucks with my clan of girly-gals ( wearing all Abercrombie, sporting some colored Uggs, & obvi carrying my colorful Dooney & Burke handbag.. lolz. ) & ordering some trendy blended beverage… thinking we were all old and mature for drinking coffee. Don’t pretend like you weren’t exactly the same.

Gah, am I relieved those days are long over. I mean, that memory is so embarrassing. AND, the worst part isn’t even my choice of attire… its those damn frappuccinos. They are seriously disgusting.. read up on the real-nast-deal here ( Lauryn from TSC has me convinced ).

BCBG Suede Jacket BCBG Suede Jacket & Flannel Eeeeps, this suede, fringe jacket from BCBG is everything… and more. I am aalllll about texture combo & this jack ( as well as my leather one.. as seen in San Fran post ) is my go-to when I want to layer some texture and make my outfit next-level cool. I’m 99% positive its out of stock, but they sell similar ones here and here.

I layered the Suede + Fringe jacket with a killer flannel button-down & some destroyed skinnies. And, obviously some clunky wedges.. a staple. This is an outfit completely comprised of staples, actually. You need to own every single one of the pieces right now. This is serious.

Kombucha My last lurve of the week is this blood orange HOLY Kombucha tea. Okay, most importantly, HOLY Kombucha is made + bottled in my hometown, Fort Worth, TX.

( PS if you don’t know what Fort Worth is, or you’ve never been, you need to get your shit together… its a seriously cool city with a small-town, friendly feel. Its getting a lot bigger, so go before it becomes too much like Dallas… plz Fort Worth, don’t ever do that… )

HOLY Kombucha’s Mission reads:

For you, HOLY Kombucha strives to brew the freshest kombucha using only organic ingredients and using absolutely nothing artificial to brew the highest quality.
For those in need, HOLY Kombucha has a mission to help save and provide a safe haven to children and women from human trafficking. We want to raise awareness and give help to organizations who strive to END human trafficking throughout the world! This is where we put our 10%!

How insanely cool… You need some HOLY Kombucha in your life. I like to drink kombucha + vodka for a weekend treat OR just by itself ( normal-human style ). This week, it was part of my detox-from-Halloween routine.

Okay, so some news:

Remember when I said I had some new things in the works for ROAWO? Well, one of those things is… drumroll please…… a total rebranding. Yep, as of early 2015, I will be moving ROAWO to a new domain ( obviously I will be giving y’all lots of heads up & I will be annoying y’all with news on the move, new links… yada yada yada) as I make the move out to Los Angeles.

I’m doing this because I no longer feel that the ‘Ramblings of a Wild One’ theme fits with my blogging goals. I’ve absolutely LOVED & worked so hard to make this blog what it is now, and I feel like rebranding is necessary to embody my ultimate vision.

I think y’all will like the new name, look, & overall vibes of the new site, which I’ll be introducing y’all to as of 2015.

I can’t waittttt to show y’all!

In the meantime, have any of you bloggers gone through a rebranding, and want to share some tips with me? I need all the help I can get… its a lot more complicated than it seems!

Even if you aren’t a blogger,

I still need your help! Is there any specific topic that you’ve been wanting to know more about? I mean, anything from health & fitness to fashion & home decor. I’d like to know what my readers want to know about, so I can write about things that y’all are actually interested in, as well a cool things that I find interesting. Comment below with your suggestions… and I will be eternally grateful & ready to help/research. Don’t be shy, k?

Much love xx

I’m Lurving… A Few Of My Favorite Things

Sup Doods. So, I thought I’d go ahead and start posting about a few of my favorite things every once in awhile. Honestly, all I’ve done in the past two days is go to class, online shop, and meticulously organize every inch of my pantry. So, this is what I’ve bought and/or seen recently that make me one happy gal [not pictured: my PERFECT pantry].

my bed 1. My freaking amaze-balls Yves Saint Laurent Canvas from Gilt and my badass handmade blanket purchased on a recent trip to Cabo San Lucas. Okay, serious talk: If you are a girl, and you don’t know what Gilt is… you are wrong. This website hosts daily “events” where members can purchase designer goods ranging in prices from vintage Louis Vuitton bags to cheaper Steve Madden sandals. Prices are marked up to 80% off, and membership is FREE. So… if you don’t go join right now, then.. well, yer weird.

2. Stop. Drop everything you are doing right meow. Go to your nearest H-E-B [if you’re lucky enough to have one in your area] and buy this Organic Green Tea with Lemonade. This stuff is the best thing that has happened to boring old green tea. It contains more sugar than I would like, but it doesn’t house any  fake sweeteners [get away, nasty-azz chemicals: you’re tacky and I hate you]. You rock, Green tea lemonade, never change.

necklace  3. My roommate, Abbey, made me this water buffalo tooth wooden necklace. Because she’s the cooliest of them all. My other roommate, Jac, and my girl, Caroline, craft similar designs, which can be purchased on their online shop, LINETWO [Go buy their stuff if you want to look cool]. I love long necklaces like these because the length can be adjusted easily by wrapping the necklace multiple times. My OTHER roommate, Maddy, is pictured here wearing my new ice [lolz] with my Free People top. I can’t find this top anywhere online, sorry gals.

Fort Worth 4. Fort Worth, TX. Being “home” [using this term lightly because I have moved like a billion times.. Air Force brat life*] made me so pumped to get back to this amazing city for summer. I mean, look at it. Ft. Worth has grown so much since my family moved there about 7 years ago. It’s the perfect mix of Country Club life, trendy bars, and Texas Country influence. If you haven’t been to “The Fort” or “Funkytown” [ya know..the names us locals use] you’re missing out. This city has a vibe all its own, and it is MOST DEFINITELY not the same as Dallas. It’s better. Way better. Just wait until summer break, and I’ll convince you myself. [Also, it wasn’t too bad to hang out with my chill AF family & friends for a couple of days.. that plug is for you Mom]

purse 5. Last, but not least, I love my new Erica Anenberg Venteux Satchel [100% leather… the fake stuff just looks, well, fake as hell] in the color “Bone.” I purchased this on Hautelook.com for a fraction of the retail price [around $400]. Hautelook is another website, like Gilt, that hosts daily events that will absolutely blow your mind. Hautelook actually tends to be a little cheaper than Gilt too.. and that’s saying a lot. If you don’t check these sites daily, then I don’t think we can be friends. Just sayin’, you’re crazy. It’s a roomy purse, which will be perfect for my abroad travels this summer <<- my excuse to buy pretty much everything.

I’m going to be posting Sundays, Wednesday, and Fridays from now on.

Also, follow me on Instagram [[RamblingsOfAWildOne]],  Twitter [[ROAWildOne]] and Bloglovin for updates and shiz.

You da best.
