What’s In My Shopping Cart: March

When a woman “browses” online, it’s a dangerous thing…

And you know what you can almost guarantee 99% of the time?

A full shopping cart – but before she makes a purchase, she deletes maybe…oh, I don’t know, 20 items?

Jokes aside, this is something I do every month. And I NEVER end up buying anything. I’m a serial window shopper and always looking for the best deals, so you know, it takes me a while to commit to a purchase.

But it’s fun! Because I can share all of my almost finds with you guys and maybe it’s something you’d love to buy. If we have similar styles, I would love to get to know you! Leave a comment with your favorite “in my cart” item for March!

March Shopping Cart | The Petite Bijou


Drybar Big Crimpin’ Crimping Iron (Limited Edition)

This is something I am definitely considering since I miss crimping irons! I used to crimp my hair ALL the time in middle school and high school. And I really don’t care if I do it in my 20’s! Haha. And of course, it’s Drybar, so what’s not to love?


Flamingo Hooded Robe

I know spring is right around the corner with warmer temps, but as soon as I get home I love to change into the fluffiest and warmest things I own. This robe is really cute for those cold spring and summer nights. I also have a tucan and flamingo theme going on in my closet so this robe is perfect!


Woven Block Heel Sandals

How cute are these sandals? I love the striped bow, it’s very summery and feminine. The only issue I have with wearing these is that my feet are very narrow. I definitely need a slingback version of these so they can stay on my feet. My mother always said I have #cinderellafeet because it’s so hard finding shoes that fit me!


Michael Kors Cat Pin

The most Mariam thing on this list is this $15 Cat pin which I totally pressed “order” on. Cats rule, end of story. And how cute would this look with a black sweater? Very.


Cold Shoulder Mini Dress

Wear it down or spruce it up with a cute white cardigan for the loveliest spring outfit. I actually think this would look very cute with the block sandals above and a cardigan! It’s only $55 and comes in white too – so you can find a pink cardigan and have a cute easter vibe going.


Will You Accept This Rose Tumbler

Not a Bachelor or Bachelorette fan but this tumbler is so stinkin’ cute! I think it’s very retro looking so this would be great for summer when you want to order a venti iced tea to go from your favorite cafe. Or you could be healthy and have water….either way, this tumbler is on my wishlist!


Drybar Mai Tai Spray

I’m all about that sea salt wavy hair. I’ll mark that down to my childhood summers spent in Florida. They were probably the best memories I had – everyone got along, the sun out all the time, and tranquility with the waves. This is the best texturizing sea salt spray I’ve tried and just ran out of. Have you tried this?

  • I meant to get a post out today.. I really did. But when things get messy, I like to step back and just focus my attention on the issue and not tire myself out. This is a huge problem I see when people try to “do it all”. NEWSFLASH: you don’t have to do it all and no one is expecting you to. Go somewhere (or stay indoors) and make sure that YOU are taking care of yourself in some way: meditation, spa, journaling, etc. one of my favorite things to do is walk. And I love walking to the stunning Japanese gardens in the @artinstitutechi 🌳

I love coming here to sit down with my coffee and listen to the water fountains while reading a book. It's a beautiful and serene place in downtown. And it's so lovely seeing everyone enjoy it. What is your favorite serene spot in your city or town? Leave a comment below ❤️ #thepetitebijou #artinstituteofchicago #chicagoigers #japanesegardens

  • Bringing 50s style to the cathedral. Much #Grantchester vibes. Anyone else watch mystery shows set in the 50s? I love Grantchester and Father Brown. All the characters look so smart in their period clothing! For an easy breezy 50's look, I love putting on a gingham dress paired with my oh so comfortable Oxford sneakers. It's a timeless look that makes city adventures fun and fashionable. Check out outfit details via the link in my bio ❤️

  • First it was the Gish sisters, then Ginger Rogers, then President Kennedy, and now The Petite Bijou! Honored to have stayed at @theblackstonehotel hotel and I'm taking you behind the scenes of this historical Chicago hotel in my first ever travel series on the blog called The Bijou Guide to Historical Chicago!
This hotel opened in 1910 and it still has all the glitz, glamour, and original history inside and out. From the grand lobby (featuring a lovely typewrite I'm obsessed with) to the private rooms and suites. This hotel oozes luxury and history that I shared in the latest blog post.

  • I have been a student for what can be best described as "infinity" amount of time. And two degrees, 3 whirlwind majors later, I have a few tricks and tips under my belt about how to survive college. So today I'm sharing 25 of my best tips for not only staying sane - but organized, efficient, and studious. There's some surprising tips there, so do check it out.
I want to know, are you in college right now? Tell us what you are studying ❤️ Are any of you later in life college students?
Here's my journey just in case you feel shy to share:
▪️Spent 5 years in undergrad getting a BA in History & Anthropology. Prepped to study abroad in Britain for my higher degree afterwards
▪️Decided not to pursue a higher degree in History, needed premedical classes I never took.
▪️Applied and accepted into a Post Baccalaureate medical school program. Started my blog during classes.
▪️During this program, couldn't pass Chem or Math (should have known), quit and took gap year doing more internships
▪️Took GRE but got rejected for Marketing and Communications programs due to  low "math" score portion of GRE....ok then...
▪️Applied to my last option, got in, and got my Masters in IMC (Integrated Marketing Communications). Best decision ever, should have done it first and sooner.
So you see, it's ok if you're journey isn't standard...it doesn't matter. What matters is you find what works for you and you do a great job at it. My journey had ups and downs but in the end, my happiness was priority. #thepetitebijou #collegetips #backtoschool #universitylife
