10 ways to be the BEST girly girl

I love being the girly girl I am, I wouldn't change one minute of it. here are some of my favorite things:

slept on curls
pink and lace
split champagne
everything with glitter
macaroons in Paris
being smitten
lipgloss... always
pretending to know football
baking cupcakes
wearing heels everywhere


r.i.p. Steve Jobs

I know it's been awhile so I need to back up and start with Steve.

On October 5th (my mom's birthday) Mom and I were having a glass of wine to celebrate as we flipped through the iPhoto book I made her about our trip to Mexico.  The bartender pointed out the Apple product and told us the bad news. We both started crying.

This man has been so influential in our lives. My mom always told me that she was on her first Mac in 1989, the year I was born. I remember being in middle school working on Quark on her Mac making colleges for my school binder, my first ipod, which seems giant compared to what we have now, and always feeling incompetent on a PC.

Apple has played such a huge role, I have always been an apple girl.  Writing this to you on my MacBook pro. I just ordered my new iPhone 4s yesterday and I will support the product forever.

Steve Jobs was one of the greats and has changed our world forever. He will be truly missed.

all things fall...

Well today I have no excuse as to why I have not blogged. I am going to guess and say I have been pre occupied with ALL things fall. Day dreaming of apple cider, tall boots and short dresses, powdered sugar doughnuts, long sleeves, carving pumpkins, and cool air that we've been dying for all summer.

We had a cold front roll through Wilmington and it was fabulous, now only if it would stick around. The cool weather simply made me crave open windows, pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks and walking to class.

Now planning a trip to Ohio in October to see my grandparents and celebrate my mothers birthday has totally put me in the mood. Planning to drink apple cider, go cheesing and everything that comes with the leaves turning and being up North!

Here are my Pinterest FALL picks to get you in the spirit! Happy September and enjoy the Fall!

summers end

It's been a busy couple of weeks, traveling to Ohio, seeing the whole family including our new member Jordan our 16 month old rescued Golden Retriever. Then coming back to Wilmington and having to evacuate to Greensboro for Hurricane Irene. Needless to say blogging was laston my mind.

I did want to tell all of you about a project I have been working on for My Green Eyed Girl INC. a non- profit organization started by a fellow High Point University graduate Chris Thurley in honor of his girl friend Cassie Hill who passed away this past February due to an unexpected brain aneurism.
He asked me to create a logo for the company and I was MORE than happy to do this for him. With the logo came t shirts and koozies that will be sold this Saturday September 3rd at a fundraiser in High Point, NC at The Frat House (a local bar). I really encourage everyone to take a look at the merchandise. Not only did I design it, it is for a great cause and a sweet girl. If you cannot make it to the fundraiser, T-shirts and koozies are available to order online!
Hope the last few days of summer are being good to you. I am trying to soak up as much sun as possible while looking forward to fall!

Thursday, August 18, 2011


heard this today from my girlfriend at work, titled Surrender by: Anonymous

On this Day:
Mend a quarrel
Search out a forgotten friend
Dismiss suspicion & replace it with trust
Write a love letter
Share some treasures
Give a soft answer
Encourage youth
Manifest your loyalty in a word or deed
Keep a promise
Find the time
Forgo a grudge
Forgive an enemy
Apologize if you were wrong
Try to understand
Flout envy
Examine your demands on others
Think first of someone else
Appreciate, be kind, be gentle
Laugh a little more
Deserve confidence
Take up arms against malice
Decry complacent
Express your gratitude
Worship your God
Gladden the heart of a child
Take pleasure in the beauty & wonder of the world
Speak your love
Speak it again
Speak it still again
Speak it still once again.

all about Catherine

After hearing the story of Hallelu and the passions of Catherine Yearwood, I am completely smitten with her style and what inspires her. Glitter Guide just did a peek inside her seaside home.

Her house is GORGEOUS. She goes on to describe her girly, fashionable style mixed with her husbands surfer, modern style. Together they make a perfect duo!

Inspiration from the ocean and thrifting with her husband is reflected in her home. But their style changes daily just as her outfits do! Check out Glitter Guides' article for all the info! Just wanted to share this amazing space with all of you!
