Markette Nola

My local West Elm and Juley {of Upperlyne} hosted the greatest Etsy Pop-Up shop a few weeks back. I had the best time browsing local vendors and even picked up a few things. I scooped up a small original piece from Markette and absolutely love her work. The perfect addition to any gallery wall and the prints {and cards} make great gifts!

The Waiting Game

2015-06-27_21-52-50

So here’s how the story goes, a few months back I spied the above shoes on a Facebook post for 7 For All Mankind and began the hunt. I found the flats and quickly there after a look for less. The look for less was still over $100 and I didn’t really want to spend that much on a pair of white flats. So I watched and waited for them to go on sale…..

Still not on sale…. I even set a sale alert on ShopStyle.

Then just on Friday I stumbled across the exact pair for $49 on LastCall.com! #Score They also come in a few other colors too!

Lucky Girl Turns 4

I wrote my first blog post four years {FOUR YEARS!!} ago today and still love the creative outlet my little space on the internet continues to be. I’m thankful for all the friends I’ve made through blogging and brands and creative types I’ve come to work with along the way. Thanks for reading and as always I look forward to sharing more finds with you!

Friday Finds

this one

1. White lacquered Bar Cabinet; You had me at lacquered! How great is this bar cabinet from Anthropologie?! I have no room for something like this but would love a similar piece in the future! #inspiration

2. Leather Magazine Rack: I’ve had my eye on a leather magazine rack for sometime now and love the design of this one. Still would love to find a vintage one.

3. Cord Bin: I hate cords! This little box hides all your cords and looks super stylish too!

4. Copper Cart: Shown with a record player, how fun?! But would work for a bar cart or even a night stand in a smaller bedroom.

Foxgram

2015-06-09_18-10-02I recently printed out a bunch of new photos for my house and went the instagram route, cause after all I feel like majority of my photos are on my phone these days. I used Foxgram and couldn’t be happier! I got the 3 x 4 prints and they came out great; and only $0.35 each! And that frame… it’s my new favorite!

Feeling the Love

2015-06-03_19-32-53Between the unexpected passing of my grandmother and my 30th birthday the love and support from family and friends has been amazing! Phone calls and texts have been overwhelming over these last few weeks. Tomorrow I’m back with regularly scheduled programming!

Turning 30: Lessons in Life, Love and Loss

2015-05-17_10-46-03

I’m turning 30 in exactly 10 days and have a range of mixed emotions. Excitement for the next decade, sadness to say goodbye to my 20s and a fear of growing older. A few weeks ago I compiled this list of life lessons from my first 30 years to share with you and last week my grandmother passed away unexpectedly; making the last item on this list even that much more important to me .

-Travel Alone – Traveling alone really helps you grow as an individual. From dealing with complete strangers, to making your own schedule and siting at a table for 1.

-Couch Time – Don’t let the couch suck you in. When I get home from work its super easy to grab the remote and computer and sink into the couch. Instead I try to go for a walk, schedule an activity or do some things around the house.

-Enjoy Your Meals – Don’t phone and eat. Put the phone down and enjoy your meal with the company you are with, in fact most times I keep my phone in my purse so there is no temptation.

-Friends– You don’t have to have a ton of friends at this age; but a few really close ones is all that matters

-Experiment in the Kitchen – With recipes, ingredients, you name it! 3 years ago I would have never eaten a brussel sprout, let alone have them in my house. Now I love to cook them at least once a week.

-Make List – I keep two list in my phone 1. Places to Eat 2. Like List – These list include restaurants I want to try and things I want to buy when I have a little extra cash.

-Leave The Office – Everyone is busy and work can get crazy, I find it important to step out for lunch. Even if it means running a quick errand or eating outside. This helps break up the day, and in fact makes me more productive in the afternoon.

-Purchases- Be wise with your money and purchase items you love and will use. Original art is one of my latest guilty pleasures, I love supporting up and coming artist and I know these pieces I will have forever. I also recommend purchasing a nice set of sheets.

-Sleep In- Speaking of sheets, my bed is one of my favorite places. When I have days with no plans I take full advantage and sleep in. These days don’t come around often, but when they do, the alarm clock is turned off.

-Protect your skin – Find a skin care line you love and stick with a routine – also buy the big floppy hat and cover your face in the sun

-Use your vacation days – and use them wisely; Even though I’ve been out of school for quite sometime the idea of having no breaks and no summer still seems foreign. I treasure my vacation days and think through before making plans.

-Speaking of vacation Book the trip! Last December my bf and I booked our trip to the islands {on a whim} and it is truly one of my favorite times him and I have spent together. And the perfect reset too!

-And lastly and most important – Treasure your time with your family and especially grandparents and parents, cause after all we won’t be here forever.
