bar cart inspiration.

just sharing my latest obsession with y’all today.
i don’t really know why all of a sudden i wanted to create my own bar cart, but i do. maybe it’s because i’m 21 now or because my roomie just graduated and took hers with her. but all i know is that there is a bid empty spot in my living room that is screaming to be filled with something pretty.
i’ve pulled some of my recent pins for inspiration, and made a little collage of wishlist items that i think i want to use to style my own bar cart.
however, please note that these items are pretty inspirational and i’ll probably end up buying cheaper options off amazon. LOL ya girl is still ballin’ on a budget here.

spring break ready.

i cannot believe spring break is almost here. well, technically it is here, for me at least. i had a marketing test yesterday afternoon and my class this morning got cancelled (PRAISE THE LORD) which mean spring break is here two days early!! WOO!
for spring break, my family has gone skiing for as long as i can remember; until i hit college. ever since then i kind of just go with the flow of my friends and do whatever the group wants to do. last year we went on a cruise to the bahamas, this year we are going skiing and i’m pretty sure next year we’re already planning yet another cruise.
i have such a hard time choosing which climate i’d really rather spend my week in. i LOVE to ski. i grew up doing it every year that it just comes naturally now (like riding a bike) and is relaxing. the beach on the other hand is just a week of laziness and sun with the cool ocean breeze blowing through your hair.
but i thought since i’ll be going skiing in colorado this year, that i would share a few spring break pieces that you would love if you’ll be beachin’ for a week.


i’ve linked everything above (PLUS MORE!) in the shopstyle widget.
i love all of these pieces so much, but here’s a few little tidbits on a few of them.
1. those espadrille wedges. i swear they are all over instagram right now and it seems like every blogger has them, but come on! how cute are they?! and so comfy i bet. props to you marc fisher.
2. the white free people dress up in the corner comes in several different fun, bright colors perfect for a beach vacay. it could totally double as a beach cover up and a cute going out dress for dinner or drinks.
3. that bikini set? i DIED when i saw it on cara loren’s instagram. i’ve never seen a bikini that shade of red and i love it! it’s strappy and lacy and wired. perfection.
okay, i digress. i just really love spring break okay?!
but for real, if you are going on a trip for your break please please please be careful. so careful. make wise choices. be safe. all of those things your mom would tell you because it is so true. scary things happen all the time and if you’re not careful they could happen to you. i love you all so much and would hate to see or hear about any one of you getting hurt.
with that being said, HAVE FUN!!

merry christmas eve!!

i cannot believe it’s already christmas eve!
i got to spend some time with the boy and his family last night before trekking across oklahoma today (boy in tow) to make it in time for christmas eve lunch with my family. now for a little r&r before santa comes tonight! ­čśë
i can’t wait to spend christmas day with some of my favorite people, and of course see what all goodies i get this year. honestly, i’ve had such a hard time getting into the christmas spirit this year. it just doesn’t feel like it’s even december. maybe it’s a good thing that the commercialized┬áchristmas holiday isn’t overwhelming me this year. it is giving me the chance to really focus on what really matters this time of year. the real “reason for the season” if you will. we have a family tradition of reading the christmas story from luke 2 before opening christmas presents, and as i get older i cherish that tradition.
so aside from wanting to know what’s on your christmas list (because i’m nosy), what’s a tradition you have for the holidays? are you full of christmas cheer this year? let’s chat!
[ here’s some cute pictures i took with my sister the other day for a christmas coca-cola campaign. ]





i hope you have a very merry christmas!!
