I'm backkkkkkk! After a much needed hiatus from the blog I am so excited to announce that I am back to deliver more content over here on sarahbelleelizabeth.com. 

I am even more excited to announce today I am partnering with one of my favorite brands ever and one that I have been manifesting all year long since we purchased our home, BEHR® Paint to talk to you guys about the new BEHR Color Trends 2021 Palette. There are 21 different colors in the 2021 Palette and 21 influencers are teaming up to show you each color in a DIY project. You can read more about that here!

So you're probably wondering what color I went with and what I am DIYing? Well I've had a plain white bathroom that's been missing the opportunity to be a statement like the rest of my rooms in the house, so I knew that this was the perfect time to transform that space. Upon seeing all the fabulous options in the BEHR Color Trends 2021 Palette, I decided that the perfect choice for the bathroom was the color Caribe PPU13-01, a beautiful and engaging blue-green. I chose Caribe because it fits well within the Optimistic View theme in the new palette and that’s exactly the vibe and feeling I wanted to create in this bathroom space. The color is energetic and makes me smile!


I think bathrooms are the perfect place to paint a bold color to truly make a positive statement in your home. I ended up deciding to go with BEHR MARQUEEⓇ Interior Semi-Gloss Paint & Primer, which you can purchase at your local The Home Depot store. Semi-gloss is perfect for bathrooms because it’s easier to wipe down when humidity and water may end up on the wall. 
 
Whenever I paint a room, I always get a painting kit from The Home Depot. I find that it has everything I need for the project, minus the painter’s tape and makes shopping for projects less of a hassle. Painter’s tape exists for a reason, use it people, especially when working with a bold color like Caribe PPU13-01!



Once everything was taped up and the drop cloth was covering all the tile, it was time to paint. After one coat I was already completely obsessed with the color. I wanted bold, I got bold. I can't stress enough how much I love the BEHR MARQUEE Paint guys. It's amazing. 



One thing that I knew I needed to do was replace the knobs on the cabinet, the ones that were there previously were just old and didn't match anything else in the bathroom (see first pic.) I ended up selecting these black simple knobs from The Home Depot, and they were super affordable and exactly what I was looking for. The Home Depot offers a convenient online shopping experience that makes DIY projects and room refreshes a breeze.

So the bathroom was completely transformed with something as simple as painting it a bold color, what are your thoughts on it? Would you ever choose a bold color of a small room or bathroom? I love how it turned out. It's exactly what I wanted. I can't wait to continue decorating this space. Eventually we will redo the tile but until then, Caribe wins.

Check out the BEHR Color Trends 2021 Palette here or go to your local Home Depot to shop BEHR Paint. 

Thank you BEHR Paint for sponsoring today's post. All opinions are my own, I am a big fan of the brand so this couldn't be a more authentic collaboration. :)

How rocking was this gift guide?! Hope you all have an amazing Holiday season :)

Y'all would be shocked by how little actual shopping I've been doing this fall. I've genuinely been waiting for the sales to start rolling and I am hyped and ready to go. I am ready to shop till I drop. Then next week shop again till I drop in NYC. Lots of shopping in my future. 

It's important to note that you do not have to shop the sales this holiday season. Just because things are cheap, doesn't mean you need them. That's something I have to remind myself like daily... No lie. It's easy to get carried away. When I lived in LA and went to sample sales, I'd buy all this stuff instead of the stuff I actually wanted, then the stuff I bought because it was so cheap basically was never worn. So. Learn from my mistakes. Don't do that this holiday season. 

Unlike last year I wanted to link the places that I actually do shop at. So here are all my favorite stores who are having amazing sales this weekend. I'll be updating this list as Black Friday sales change to Cyber Monday sales, so make sure you come back Monday for all the tea on all the great deals. No particular order btw.

Happy Shopping!!!

Hello friends! Who is ready for the craziness of the holiday shopping to begin? I sure as hell am, I also am ready to shop for some serious deals for myself... Guilty. Can't pass up some serious deals on all my favorite things.

If you're reading this, odds are you're reading it coming from my YouTube video, My Christmas Wishlist, but if you haven't watched it already, click here (later when it's live) and you can! I go over all the things I am asking for Christmas as my 26 year old self... Not as exciting as last years garbage can that was on the list. Being an adult is so fun.

Anyway so those are the things I asked for now let's talk about the things I want to buy myself/hope to swoop this long shopping weekend!


Yikes, truthfully I already purchased this one but I wanted to put it on here incase you all want this cute blouse too! Obviously I am obsessed with Ganni so this was a no brainer, I almost purchased a similar shirt from Zara that was half the price but not as good for layering, so glad I held off. I found it for a stellar deal on Intermix, check it out here! For sure packing this with me to NYC next week.
Another Ganni item but simply cannot resist a cute Ganni dress. The price is too high right now but praying it goes down because it *needs* to be mine.
I think I am going to cave and buy a new bag this sale season. Ughhhh I know, does she need another bag? No. Do I want one? Yes. Are the deals amazing? Probably. I haven't settled on an exact one I want yet, it's still up in the air as I watch the prices go down because I love them all (obviously not going crazy and getting them all, just wanted to let y'all know why I hadn't caved yet.) Which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!

Chloe C Bag
Chloe C Purple Bag
Loewe Bag
Loewe Ying Yang Bag

Wow this Acne Studios scarf is amazing. It's got all my favorite 70s colors in it... Don't love that price tag though but will definitely continue to watch it! Unfortunately since I started writing this post though, it's gone up in price. BUMMER.
It's definitely a known thing that I love me some Zara, so I am really banking on Zara to have another 30% off sale like they did last Black Friday. There is this prairie dress that I want that's a darker brown. I refuse to pay more than $50 for something at Target unless it's a coat or boots so the discount would make the dress around that price.

& Other Stories Dress (and probably other things...)

There is no doubt in my mind that I was made for this & Other Stories dress and I just so happen to know a discount is coming soon :) Gear up people.
This set from Free People has been on my lusting after list since I first saw it in September or October. It's on sale already but I just really hope there is a discount on sale items. Pretty please with sugar on top + icing! Along with that, this dress. Omg so good.
I personally love everything Mango does, especially their jewelry. These statement earrings are so big right now and I feel like these are tastefully done with size and gaudiness.

So those are the things I am lusting over this Black Friday and Cyber Monday. What's on your list of things to buy yourself? I've clearly gotten a head start but don't worry, not all of it was for me! Cheers! And Happy (early) Thanksgiving :)


It's my favorite sale of the season... the Farfetch semi-annual sale.

Any luxury addict knows the importance of the semi-annual sales around May and November, they are iconic. ICONIC. Sorry I had to stress how iconic the sales are because they truly blow my mind every freakin year. Heres the catch though, Farfetch is overwhelming af. Like there are so many designers that it's often difficult to navigate because you can scroll for hours. Well now you don't have to because you're here.

I have been favoriting things on my Farfetch account all season long in anticipation for this sale and this sale roundup. These are things I truly adore and if I had all the money in the world, I'd probably be purchasing right now because you can't beat these prices. This time of year (as well as May) are my favorite times to make those investment purchases. Last season I purchased my prized Ganni boots and my Chloe tie dye shirt... oh and my Retrofete dress and By Far heels. Okay, you get it, I went overboard. And I highly believe I will go overboard again this year, but as long as I am saving money, it's okay, right?

Here's all the things I am LOVING from the sale. Shop wisely my friends, take that mouse to Farfetch right now and INDULGE.

all of these items pictured can be purchased in the sale in a different color

Let's start off with my favorite article in fashion... handbags. I LOVE HANDBAGS. I can't get enough, never too many. Too many doesn't exist in this household. 



The iconic Moon bag from Staud. I have been wanting this bag for so damn long ever since Staud first posted about it on Instagram, then it was everywhere all fashion week long. YES PLEASE. Personally I love the look of the large one, oversized and such a statement. Also here it is for under $200!

Marc Jacobs Softshot bag is amazing. I love this color way, so autumnal and also just my favorite colors right now to wear.

Have you been eyeing my Chloe C bag? Well the bad news they don't have the exact one I have but they have other color ways!

It's definitely no secret that I love boots almost as much as I love handbags. There are a lot of good prices this year on amazing boots from Ganni and Paris Texas. I can't decide which pair I need to make mine this season. HELP.




Moving on to clothing. Clothing is so hard to determine what people will like but here are some of my favorite things from the sale that I recommend giving a second look.



Didn't think it was possible to love a Chloe t-shirt more than the current color way I own... but they did it to me. They released a better color combo... Damnit. I mean look at these colors, how could one not want this shirt?! The logo is perfect and believe me when I say the shirt itself is comfortable af. I wear mine all summer and winter long.



I rounded up all my favorite Ganni clothing picks below but my favorite thing that I personally own from their fall collection is the dress I wore in Portland. It's on sale for 40% off. Bad for me (because I paid full price) but great for you! Perfect for Thanksgiving!



HAPPY SHOPPING! Or shall I say, happy adding things to your cart to buy yourself for Christmas... Guilty af.
