Lilly Pulitzer New Arrivals

 Monday, March 2, 2015

Hello everyone!

I hope y'all have been staying warm with these terrible snowstorms. Now whenever I see the word snow all I can see is the word sNOw! I'm sick of the snow and cannot wait for it to be spring. I want to wear dresses and skirts without tights and sandals instead of snow boots!

Lilly Pulitzer just released the Resort collection for this year and just looking at the new arrivals gives me hope of warmer days.

Did you check out the new collection yet? Here are some of my favorite items from the newly released looks.





I am loving the colors in this collection. The collection is mostly yellow and blue! Although I tend to buy pink Lilly, I get much more use out of my Lilly pieces that are blue. Im excited to add some of these to my collection! Today, 3.02.2015 you can get a free pair of earrings with any size purchase.


Bauble Bar Sample Sale

 Thursday, February 26, 2015

I always appreciate it when my friends let me know about great sales. So I thought I'd share a sale I just found out about with my lovely readers!

Bauble Bar is currently having a Sample Sale with items 50-75% off. 

Here are my favorite items from the sale:

Aztec Drops
Aztec Drops Earrings Now only $15
Cordelia Gem Collar
Cordelia Gem Collar Necklace was $58 now $20

Did you purchase anything from this sample sale? It seems as though online sample sales (like Kate Spade's Surprise Sales) are becoming more and more common. Honestly, I hope these sales don't become what the outlets have- a way in which companies can make lower quality items and sell them as a "sale." In the meantime, when companies are still trying to liquidate their single-line products, Im happy to shop these awesome sales at the comfort of my home computer!


Techie Thursday:: Funny or Die Weather App

 Thursday, January 29, 2015

The weather has been so bipolar lately. I have to constantly check weather apps and websites to make sure that I am dressing correctly. 

Funny or Die just came out with a humorous weather app that combines two things I need to do daily- laugh and check the weather!

Here's wha the CEO said about the app, ""Smart, accurate weather has always been the number one goal of Funny Or Die, despite what you might have thought," says Funny Or Die CEO Dick Glover. "Funny Or Die cofounders Will Ferrell and Adam McKay are meteorologists first and businessmen second. As California residents, they know all too well the unpredictability of mother nature when you can swing wildly from a 78 degree sunny day to a 77 or 81without reason it can be unsettling. Safe, reliable weather forecasting can add some stability to the uncertain world," he added.

I can't wait to start using this detailed weather forecasts that have funny commentary, jokes, and animation along with valuable information.

What do you think about combining humor and the weather?


Valentine's Day Crafts

 Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Every so often, I get an itch to craft. And with Valentine's Day coming up- why the heck not!

There are so many great printables and free tutorials online for Valentine's Day crafts and cards. Additionally, there are some great ways to decorate your home or do something small to show the ones you love a great day!

I wanted to highlight a few:

These Valentine Tags from LivingLocurto are modern and fun. I love the idea of putting a cute little Holiday tag with a regular gift to make it perfect for this Holiday.

This heart mirror is made up of little affirmations about why you love (or just appreciate) someone in your life. I love this idea because its so personal and easy to make. I know I'd love this if someone did this for me!

This bouquet of branches with hearts is an inexpensive way to decorate for Valentine's day. This bouquet would certainly be a conversation topic and would work in a variety of colored hearts and locations. 

What are you planning on making or doing for Valentine's Day?


Better Breakfasts

 Saturday, January 24, 2015

I would consider myself to be a pretty decent cook. At school, I am fortunate enough to not to cook for myself for most of the week. Living in the sorority house and being on a sorority meal plan certainly has its perks!

Yet, I do miss having adventures in the kitchen. I love trying new things and lately I've been checking out Pinterest to get new ideas for breakfast. Specifically, I am looking for quick but filling meals I can make next year.

Here are some of the cool new breakfast's Ive found:

1. Yogurt Overnight Oats

These overnight oats are a way to have a filling breakfast made the night before. I love yogurt and oatmeal together! By leaving the mixture overnight, the oats soak up some of the liquid and taste even better than they would if you made it in the morning.

2.Bacon and Egg Crescent Squares

These cool flatbreads are made from Pillsbury crescents! How cool! I love cooking with Pillsbury crescents because its a quick and easy way to impress guests. These squares look a lot fancier than they are. 

3.Nutella Pancake Kabobs

These kabobs are made out of pancakes, nutella, and fruit! These tiny pancakes take less time than full pancakes to make and these kabobs are the cutest! 

Do you have any creative and easy breakfast creations? Comment below!
