Friday Favorites | Last Of August

August 28, 2015

Happy Friday everyone! We made it through another week and the last Friday of August is here! Today is a bittersweet day as it's the last day for me at my current job and Monday I'll be starting fresh on a new career path with a great company!! There will be a few growing pains around here (mostly for myself as I get situated into my new routine- blog post anyone?!), but I've been busy writing and have so many great ideas and posts ready to roll!! Enough rambling for right now, let's get to some favorites with Amanda and April

Favorite New Read

Having just finished The Royal We - which by the way is totally worth all the hype that it got - I was in the market for a new book. Thankfully this review of Everybody Rise came out and I knew I had to read it!! It's also been picked up to be made into a movie by the same producer as Devil Wears Prada! Have you read it yet?!

Favorite Song

It's been out for quite some time, but I can't stop listening to Fight Song, but Rachel Platten. I feel like it's perfect for anything going on in your life...wanting a new job, getting over a break up, thinking of making a change - it totally works to get you excited!!! I also love that my oldest niece and I jam out to this when we're together! 

Favorite Drink

I discovered that I liked Moscow Mules last year - late to the party on that one. I stumbled upon this recipe for Moscow Mule Jello Shots - YUM! 

Favorite Blogging Articles

I add a lot of blogging related to my pinterest board, but hardly have time to read it, but these two posts were quick and easy to get through! If you struggle with what to charge for sponsored posts, then read this! Easy rule of thumb!  Similarly I have a Google+ page, but have apparently been using it the wrong way!! 

Favorite Links

//New month means new wallpaper on my screens - love the flamingos! 
// Which celebrity has the best street style
// Listen to Rachel Zoe go through her resume - you never know where your passion will lead you! 

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and I'll see you back here Monday for weekending! 

Dress Up Your Work Space

August 26, 2015

Shopping for school supplies was hands down my favorite part about going back to school. I didn't mind having to go back because that meant busting out the new pens and notebooks and starting fresh. So even though most of us aren't going back to school, I think our office spaces could use a refresh all the same! Working in an office environment it's easy to feel like our space doesn't have much character, but adding a few fun prints, new office supplies and even some fun stationary to leave notes for colleagues or yourself is all you need to feel like September is the start of a new working adventure for you

I've been doing a little back to school shopping and picking up some things for my desk to keep me feeling inspired and be productive. My friend Jackie purchased some fun Lilly Office products that I can't wait to start using! 

//Saving money will be worth it when I'm drinking my coffee & tea out of this cute mug
// I think we all know I have a thing with pens, but these cute bando sweet talk pens give my notes an extra flare
//I can't even tell you how great it is to see the entire week in note form with this Lilly organizer. I've actually been using it as more of a blogging editorial calendar for the week to stay ahead of the game. 
// I have a thing for folders and these are seriously too cute - I have similar ones with flamingos that I found at TJ Maxx! The brand is Robee and you can find all their stuff on Amazon too! 
// I'm all about sticky notes - for my planner, for my computer screen and just to have on hand to remind myself and of course these Lilly ones are the cutest! I can't wait to start using mine! 
// Self proclaimed stationary and notebook hoarder over here - so these poppin medley of soft cover notebooks is right up my alley! Think of the possibilities - a different color for every project!! 
So many supplies, so little time!! 

What are some office supplies you just have to have?

Geo Print | The Perfect Sight Seeing Outfit

August 25, 2015

When Pamela, Amanda and I were in Charleston a few weeks ago we realized that we all packed some sort of geo print to sight see!! With all of us deciding on a different way to wear the trend (maxi & skirt), we thought it would be fun to highlight how we each interpreted it. I went with a romper that I scored from Marshall's two days before our trip - price tag $10!! You just can't beat that!! 
The reason I loved this romper was that it was light weight, breathable and you couldn't see me sweating through it - since it was arguably the hottest day there.  Funny enough I usually find that when I wear shorts they ride up, but this romper stayed in place and since we were sight seeing all day the bathroom breaks were limited so that whole issue of taking the romper off didn't come up much! 

What else made this outfit so perfect was the cross body bag and the gladiator sandals - that I literally tore through. Not having to lug a bag with me on my shoulder was the best thing I did for myself. My Anne Klein Fit Watch nearly had to be recharged every night with how much walking we were doing and again I can't even tell you what a great investment this watch was because it matches all my outfits effortlessly without looking like I'm wearing a fit watch! 
Bracelet & Necklace Gorjana
I snagged the purse during the last sale that Gigi New York was having and sadly they are no longer making this bag - but this one is another good option. 
To me a great sight seeing outfit in the Summer is light weight, easy to pack and breathable. The shoes are always important since you'll be doing a lot of walking and of course you want a purse big enough to hold the important stuff, but small enough that you dont feel like its a nuisance - which is why a cross body is always my first choice. 
And because I love a good outtake - I leave you with this beauty - not even sure what I was laughing about but it must have been good! 
What do you find yourself gravitating towards when you sight see?
P.S. the coloring is a bit off in the pictures - I promise I'm not actually orange!
