Stationary Obsessed

If you love stationary and monogramming you MUST check out maydesigns. They have the largest selection of all types of stationary from personalized agendas to note cards.  I first saw may books being advertised on instagram and absolutely fell in love.  I love to organize and collect all sorts of stationary.  I recently just purchased my very first may book for an every day planner.  I AM OBSESSED.  For starters, I love the fact you can pick your own color, design, font, monogram, and choice of pages.  The may book I chose was the non-dated monthly calendar which is around a $22 price point. AWESOME, I know.  All you stationary junkies out there, THIS IS HEAVEN. Please indulge yourself!

Happy Sunday y'all! 
 Today is Mother's day and I couldn't be more excited!  I have one of THE strongest mothers out there.  Not only is she beautiful on the inside and out, she is honest, loyal, determined, strong, highly intelligent and extremely loving.  My mom is truly my best friend.  Now this mother's day is a little different, for me that is.  I am a new puppy mom!!!!!!! Eight months ago, I was given a black lab.  That day I was actually babysitting and wanted to bring the little kiddos to look at some puppies and play with them.  Not actually planning on purchasing one THAT DAY.  That being said, a loving woman came up to me and the kids with this handsome 6 week old black lab.  He was shaking, scared, and in the arms of someone who truly wanted the best for him.  She said to me, "Miss, are you planning on adopting anytime soon? You look like you are good with dogs and this little fellow came up to my door and was hungry, would you be interested in giving him a loving home?" {thinking maybe for half a second} I immediately fell in love.  There were no questions asked.  He was mine!  From that day on I have been a loving puppy mom to Duncan.    Although I may not be a mother to a child, my little 8 month old black lab is my baby!!!!! So to all the MOMS out there, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY:)
Happy Mother's Day, Mom!

My beautiful Mother!

"Such is life"
 I am a sucker for anything french!  I am so intrigued by the culture and would love to actually visit one day.  (Honeymoon Idea?) Maybe.  I also am a sucker for the "french, cursive, sayings" on EVERYTHING!  This has been such a trend lately whether its on pillows, clothing, jewelry, wall decals, stationary, etc.  It's just in right now and I can't seem to get my hands on enough.  When I really think about the saying, SO MUCH comes to mind.  One thing in particular that clouds my mind when I see or hear this is, be so grateful for what you do have and try not to stress over little things that you think are "So big" at the time.  It's life, things happen BUT things will go on, I promise! :)  Now lets get to the fun part

Dearly BowLoved

Dearly BowLoved,
"The Bow" Such a girly statement anywhere you see it.  Whether it be on a present, outfit or shoes.  GREAT piece to spice up an outfit.  My favorite {Go to Bow} would be the nude patent emery J. Crew bow flats.

 Another trendy bow style I am in love with this season, BOW SHORTS!  The idea of a short that is not suctioned to your leg and gives you some breathing room and also is comfortable at the same time is simply a win win in my eyes.

And now, it's time for the BOW JEWELRY! 
You can never go wrong with simple gold bow earrings, timeless.

She loved life and it loved her right back!

Let's take a moment and remember the beautiful, colorful, and classy life of the iconic Lilly Pulitzer.  She has and always will be such an inspiration to many of us.

Happy Easter!

"One day the grave could conceal Him no longer,

One day the stone rolled away from the door.
Then He arose, over death He had conquered
Now He’s ascended, my Lord evermore!
Death could not hold Him, the grave could not keep Him
From rising again"

Monogram obsessed

If it's not moving, MONOGRAM IT!

What girl doesn't like to see their own initials in their favorite color and font!?  Monograms are the perfect way to make your mark known in a classy way!  Thanks to ETSY, monogramming has become even more popular!  There are so many things and ideas people have come up with and I am just in heaven!  Lately, I have ordered so many initials off of etsy I can only imagine the looks I will acquire at starbucks. ha :) My fellow monogram girls know what I am talking about!

Little things DO make a difference

The Arm Party
I am definitely on the #armparty #armcandy kick.  Every time I see new little accessories at my favorite boutiques I am there in no time.  A girl can never have TOO many bracelets, especially gold ones :) A watch is a must have in my every day outfit.  I tend to stick to my gold Michael Kors.  This new trend is so stylish yet very affordable!  It's so nice to go into a store you absolutely love and be able to get 2 or 3 items for under $50!  Who doesn't get excited about that??  Whether it be bracelets your eye goes to first, rings, watches, or earrings, they all count and stand out.....even the little ones :)

Feeling trendy one day?
