Galentines 2018

For years now I have thrown a Galentines brunch. I am not sure what it is about Valentines Day, but I have always loved this holiday! The pinks, reds, flowers, what else would you want! This day doesn't have to be about some fancy dinner with your S.O, it can just be about LOVE. Love for yourself. Love for you life. Love for the awesome women who are in your life. I know for myself I wouldn't know what I'd do if it weren't for my girlfriends.

I like to keep it easy and simple. The whole point of a Sunday brunch is to relax and enjoy girlfriends. The best part of course is the food! We did a potluck this year because well, cooking for 10 girls can get expensive! Especially after bottles of champs! We kept it fun and light with a pot luck and mimosa bar!

The best part about hosting parties for me is that it doesn't have to be expensive! I did a bagel bar for under $20! Bagels are filling and so yummy! Sunday carbs don't count right?! Probably 99% of my decorations came from Marshalls and Homegoods and the rest from Hobby Lobby, but most were the MeriMeri brand. I absolutely love their party decor! Unfortunately we don't have many places to find good party decorations and often I find myself going to 4-5 different boutiques. So finding some fun stuff at Homegoods isn't hard! I still have yet to sign my cards. MeriMeri of course, but they are cute and have a vintage look! Cheers everyone and let me know how you Galentines go!

Ultimate Summer Gift

Summer birthdays, wedding parties, and graduations parties are on the top of my list this summer. The only downside to all of these awesome parties are gifts. Now let me be the first to say I love buying gifts and giving them! Gifts can be expensive. Especially when you have an event every weekend.

I always make a weekly or biweekly round to Marshalls or Homegoods. You can always find something or anything there. Sometimes it can get overwhelming. I swear that I have went shopping and don't get a basket so I can limit myself and end up walking back to the front with an arms full!

This weekend I have my cousin's 21st birthday and another cousin's graduation party! Two in one weekend! I found the perfect gift that can be used all summer and even next for less than $35 at one store! That's right I said $35!

A very in style gold striped flamingo beach bag to store all the goodies and doubles as gift bag- $8
Oversized beach/ pool towel to lay in style- $12
Bathing suit or bag to keep bathing suit from getting bag wet or keep phone and wallet dry- $5
Perfect palm print notebook to write down summer goals- $4
Facial sunscreen. This is my favorite brand! - $5
Lotion because the pool or beach can get drying and if you always want to smell great - $1.5

 You can throw in a fun bottle of champagne or white wine, with a cute bottle topper! Enjoy and have a wonderful summer :)

I loved making this goody bag and almost needed to make my own! Have a fun and safe summer and do not forget to wear sunscreen!

Lets Flamingle

Flamingos. Do I need to say more? Who knew a long pink bird with a long black beak would be this summers rage? While running errands around Rockport today, I usually make rounds to come places that I stop by once a month. There was tons of cute flamingo decor. From garden decor, wind chimes, outdoor tray, to wine glasses. The one flamingo trend I couldn't pass up without buy was this Maxwell and Molly shirt.

You can't go wrong with this vibrant hot pink shirt and a little cutout just to put it above a regular tee. This shirt is a perfect brunch tee shirt to throw on with some cutoffs, right earrings, and some sunglasses to hide last nights makeup :) Less that $25 for a comfortable and perfect quality tshirt is something you can't pass up! Luckily these earrings were also from M&M. Such a huge trend and I am still debating in getting them in different colors.  Yall these shorts... I splurged, but it was for my birthday and once I tried them on I knew I needed them! I had to get them in another color! The cut off length is perfect and sit just on the hips. I love to shop small and bought these at my favorite boutique in Rockport, Bay Window or HERE online.  They are so comfortable and I am ready to wear these with a tank and bathing suit!
