Bits of the Week...

Good Morning Lovelies and Happy Friday!!

Ah, finally...almost the weekend.  At 5pm today, I will be one happy girl.  I hope your week has been wonderful!  My week has been so fun, mostly rushed, but nonetheless fun. :)  Here are a few snapshots of what has been going on:

My best friend, Kayci, made me this sweet canvas print for my Birthday to feed my anchor obsession.  Of course, I show it off proudly on my desk @ work.  So cute, I love her. :) 

New shoes delivered to work? Yes, please! Buy them here.

So, before you're too freaked out...We had Vacation Bible School this week @ Church.  J and I did Crafts for the little kiddos and one night we made these.  Yes, J thought it appropriate to put a gold coin in my hand and turn my car into a Mercedes...he's knows me all too well. :) 

 New bracelet from Kenneth Jay Lane...this was a surprise gift from J because I had a bad day.  "Just because" gifts are the best kind. :)

Finally got my monogram necklace from Baublebar and LOVE it.  So excited to wear it! 

Sweet Lola relaxing in her comfy bed.  I love this little one. :)

Short and sweet this week!  I'm noticing there's a lot of jewelry in these last few posts...I think I may have a slight major obsession.  I hope you all have a lovely, fun weekend!

Braided Bun:

Good Morning Loves,

So, I have always had a thing for the messy bun and adore the way it can turn a simple outfit into looking so chic.  However, since braids have been such a hit for the last little while, I've been incorporating them into my hairstyles any way I can.  I love a braid for the beach, with a casual/boho outfit, or a like I did here with a little twist.  But, I saw this idea on Pinterest and had to try it: 

Pretty cute, huh? :)
(This was pre-hairspray so the frizzies eventually went down! :))
Here are some other braided buns that I'm loving:

Are you still loving this trend as much as I am?

Hope you have a lovely day!

A Little Sparkle...

Good Morning Loves,

I can't help but crave anything and everything with sparkles!  I feel like they add a certain amount of show-stopping fun to whatever they're adorning and I'll take sparkles on just about anything!  Here are a few of my favorite sparkly things to brighten your Tuesday:

Oscar de la Renta Resort
ombre glitter nails

Sparkle Eye Shadow
More sparkley shoes
gold sparkle
blush chiffon blouse

Sparkles just make me smile. :)
Have a lovely day!

Snapshots of the Weekend...

Good Morning Loves,

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!  Mine consisted of a lot of relaxing, a little pool time, eating out, and...oh yeah, a little more pool time. :)  Aren't those the best weekends, when you just get to do what you want and chill out for a while?  Here's a few snapshots of how it all went down... :)

Hanging poolside with my sweet family-including this precious little one, Caroline.  How adorable is she? 

Out for Japanese (my fave!) with my in-laws.  It's so nice to have a mother in law that you adore, not everyone has that luxury. :)

And sweet, handsome J... :)  He's my. favorite. person. ever. Period.  Couldn't imagine my life without him, and never want to. We have the best time just being silly together. :)

My plate...the sad thing is, this is what was left over after I stuffed my face!! 

And of course, the night wouldn't be complete without a  little Starbucks and a Cake Pop for dessert.

The best father in law in the world...seriously.  This man's my hero. :)

New Vogue came in the hot does Emma Stone look?!  Love her. 

And...this is my happy place.  If I can't be beside the Ocean, this is the next best thing. :)

 Have a lovely Monday y'all!

Good Morning Loves,

As most of you know, I'm a big Bachelor/Bachelorette fan and I am loving this Season so far with Emily Maynard. (What happened on the show last night is a whole other post!!)  She seems so genuine and sweet -- I want to find her in Charlotte and become her friend!! :)  But, one of the previous Bachelorette's has got to be my favorite of all.  She had such a great season on the show and I love how she handled herself and her decisions.  She actually fell in love with the gorgeous Roberto, but unfortunately, it didn't work out.  Anyway, not only do I think she is the sweetest girl, but I love her personal style.  She always looks comfortable, yet natural and chic all at the same time.  It's got to be, Ali Fedotowsky!  Here are a few of my favorite looks:

Ali Fedotowsky looks amazing in bright blue dress, coral pumps & Serenity Pendent Necklace!  Perfect for Spring!  Find the necklace here:
Single sweetheart necklace "This is so simple & classy. I can wear it with anything!"- Ali Fedotowsky
Loveappella Hi-Lo Wrap Maxi Dress as seen on Ali Fedotowsky
Ali Fedotowsky goes floral for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

love this dress on @Ali Fedotowsky

Ali also sells some of her favorite accessories and clothes from amazing designers on OpenSky!  
I just love her. :)
Have a lovely day!
