my dream beach bag

All the things you need this summer to take to the beach! Good reading, adorable coin purse and of course a designer bag to tote it around in!Hawaiian Tropic shimmer 20 SPF lotion, a perfect summer glow and protection

A Place of Yes by Bethenny Frankel, I bought it today, it is supposed to be life changing and hilarious

Kate Spade wallet, to keep a few bucks around when you have to have that mojito in the heat

Coach sandals, love the ankle strap so they don't go anywhere. And these are the type of sandals that can be dressed up or down, the best kind!

Kate Spade Pineapple coin purse, I don't carry any 'jingle' but this is too cute not to have

Lacoste Stripped hat, When the summer sun starts beating too hard, cover your face in style
and of course a cute, straw, coach bag!

carnival couple

Love these engagement photos done by Desi Baytan Photography and shared by Style Me Pretty. I love the formal clothes in the middle of a carnival, the bright colors of the lollipops and rides make it fun and light hearted. What a perfect day to propose :)



We lost an Icon on March 23rd and I wanted to share some great posts from great bloggers, Mrs. Lilan, Looks Good To Me, and The Sketch Book, Thanks ladies!


trash to treasure

I collect jewelry, and to me it is an art form. I was getting frustrated that my jewelry box was looking a hot mess, and I wanted to display my beautiful collection of Earrings.

So my mom found me a $10 frame from an antique shop that happened to match my room perfectly, I went to Home Depot bought $5 screen, flirted with the guy who was helping me and got him to staple gunned everything! (it never hurts to look out of place in a hardware store, and trust me I don't have to try) And this is my finished product!!

What a simple, cheap idea for art on my wall, and convenient! Thank you Hallelu for the great idea!

happy friday!! have a fun and accomplished weekend ( I sure hope to )

pop of pink

A little pop of a bright color is always a good thing, and can change a room for the better every time. Design*Sponge showed this adorable bathroom today, all white with a pop of HOT pink. I am obsessed!! Love the prints of the flat iron and toothbrush and the pink stones to hot the actual toothbrushes is cute and convenient, great ideas!

luck of the irish

A little late, I know, but happy belated St. Patty's day, I found an Irish themed wedding on Snippet & Ink so I had to past something! As a girl from Dublin, Ohio I was definitely missing home this past Thursday, green beer and all!

I Love the clovers in the beer and the clover cuff links, what a perfect touch! So elegant but fun at the same time.



logo alphabet

As I was doing some research for my most recent logo project I stumbled across this. I think it is so cool, I knew almost every logo... can you guess what everything is?

Kinda want this print to frame and hang in my house! have a happy monday

Hallelu loves ME!!

My favorite shop on Wrightsville beach, Hallelu held a contest to post a picture wearing a Hallelu outfit on facebook. I of course had to enter but I have so many outfits I couldn't choose one. My outfits are worn on a caribbean cruise, puerto rico, rome, Italy and carolina beach. And because I took Hallelu around the world with me, I WON!! I am sooo thrilled, check out there post at Pretty Pleased and take a few minutes, (or hours) to shop on line :)

surf board central

ummmm, how freaking cute is this surfer board theme wedding? I am OBSESSED, thank you Snippet & Ink what a good alternative to the typical sand and sea concept!


bridesmaid bliss

So I have been MIA for a while, I know, but I am just getting back to my self, tuning in with me and the person I used to love to be. I am mending a broken heart and it feels good to become my self again!

In the past bridesmaids have worn some pretty bad dresses just to make sure the bride looks 10x better, but in my opinion if the bridesmaids don't look good, neither does the bride.

so thank goodness, the bridesmaids dresses are getting better, more beautiful, and hopefully useful in the future. I found a few fun examples on Snippet & Ink of gorgeous dresses that make the bride look even better!
the champagne is my favorite!!
