John planned a special day for our 4th anniversary this year. It started with gifts, totally spoiling me as usual. I knew I liked the idea of having a good camera, but I always convinced myself that it wasn't necessary because our iPhones were good enough. I couldn't have been more wrong. It's kind of like when I refused to give in to the concept of expensive jeans because I figured my cheap ones worked just the same. (That's totally false btw. Expensive jeans are totally worth it.)
Our 3rd annual 3rd of July Sausage Fest was a success! Our town celebrates Independence Day on the 3rd of July, so we started a tradition 3 years ago of having friends over for sausages, games and fireworks.
I recently realized that my spirit animal is a flamingo. I don't know why I haven't settled on this sooner. They are bright pink and tall, just like me. Ever since I realized this, I have been absolutely obsessed with flamingos. Naturally, I built a Pinterest board and have been pinning away for days now. I have a feeling there will be a lot more flamingo-related posts to follow, but in the meantime, check out these awesome flamingo products that I came across.
I was the lucky recipient of all three of these items this Christmas. I got the rose gold necklace, gold bracelet and navy blue band. Talk about a surefire way to convince me to start working out!
Ok, so this is seriously not that big of a deal at all, but in my head it's like huge. An Instagram pic I took was featured on Revolve's homepage a few weeks ago, which leads me to today's lesson:
- Maybe I should start working out more. (Cute outfits = good publicity)
- White backgrounds and good natural lighting pay off. (Taken on an iPhone 6+)
- If you don't know what RevolveClothing.com is, go check it out. My sister is one of their buyers, which means my wish list is 100 items long at all times.
- You should follow me on Instagram. Apparently my pics are front page worthy.

Do you love clear crap as much as I do? I'm obsessed with all things lucite/acrylic. I was in TJ Maxx and basically dropped everything and dove to the ground to dig out a lucite tray with gold handles yesterday. It's pathetic, really.
I'm curious though, I wrote the following post about mirrored furniture almost exactly a year ago. Which do you prefer? I haven't chosen sides yet. I would basically do anything for home decor in any style at this point.
Lucite or Mirrored? You could choose neither I guess too, but I can't believe anyone would be crazy enough to do that ;)
Today I'm going to show you some tricks for making a custom wedding gift basket on the fly. In this case, I helped make this basket as an engagement gift, but same concepts applies to engagement parties, bachelorette parties or any other wedding-related function
you're forced you get to attend.
