Flower Headband & The Killer Snake

Happy Tuesday! I haven't shared what I did on my birthday, but it was wonderful! I woke up to streamers and balloons in the house. I LOVE birthday decorations! Like little kids themed birthday parties! I had to work, but after Dallin took me to a Brazilian grill which was so good! I ate way too much food and had too many Brazilian lemonades. Definitely worth it though. After he surprised me by taking me to BYU's ballroom dance show. It was incredible! I cried in three of the songs...I know, I'm a baby when it comes to brilliant dances. I seriously loved it. They were amazing. It was such a fun birthday :) 

This outfit is very boho fashion. To me it's comfortable. It's one of those outfits that I could wear everyday. Floral headbands are in right now and to me they add so much to an outfit. I feel relaxed when I wear one. Weird? Haha seriously though. They're nice.

I was able to get my jeans and sandals on sale! Which it's always good to save some money! The jeans are not on sale anymore, but coupons.com offers great deals and savings. Be sure to get some Forever 21 coupon codes and American Eagle coupon codes to save on these items and more!

Ok....so the killer snake. Ariel and I were out taking pictures when we saw this spot that I'm standing in front of and thought it would be perfect with the lighting and what not. So when I started to walk into the grass this stick like figure caught my eye. It was a snake! Ok...I'm TERRIFIED of snakes. As in they give me panic attacks and raise my pulse through the roof! This was a long silver snake. Probably 2 inch fangs and poisonous venom just waiting for the perfect moment to attack. I may be exaggerating a bit and I'm sure it was more scared of us, but good grief I seriously hate snakes.










Reaction to the snake that almost killed me!!....

Hallmark-Easter Cards

I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of  a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser. #EasterValue #CollectiveBias

Easter is just around the corner! This year I have definitely been more on top of getting my Easter cards ready to send out. This year I had the help of my niece to get my Easter package ready to send out on time. I'm not able to go home this Easter, but Hallmark had such a variety of cards, I was able to pick one out for everyone in the family.



Hallmark cards can be found at a local Walmart and another plus is how reasonably priced these Easter cards are. It's great because you can earn rewards by buying Hallmark cards at Walmart. For every five cards you buy you can earn a reward with the Hallmark Card Reward Program. It can make the card up to half off! It's easy to sign up and saves you in the long run.



We had so much fun putting together this package and picking out the different cards. They had so many cute cards! I wanted to buy all of them. Every card was so fun to decorate and personalize. Elizabeth was so creative with the stickers, it put my cards to shame! I feel like a lot of people don't send cards anymore, but it really can be so personable to someone and also mean so much!





I'm excited for everyone to get their card in the mail! Make sure you check out connectionsfromhallmark.com to sign up for Hallmark rewards. Be sure to join in the conversation on Twitter using hashtags #EasterValue and #CollectiveBias to see other ideas from bloggers using Hallmark cards!

Azalea Festival

In honor of Azalea Festival...

Going on back home right now is one of the biggest events that my hometown puts on. The Azalea Festival. It's usually the first or second week in April because that's when the azalea's start to bloom. They have concerts leading up to the weekend, they have the huge street fair along the water front all weekend, and then they have the belles. Yes, I was(am) a southern belle.

To be an azalea belle you have to have a sponsor from the garden club. And I did :) So months in advance you go to different houses who provide the dresses and we all pick our favorite. You have to wear the under wire hoop to make your dress huge. You have to have fake curls, gloves, and an umbrella. Azalea belles are then placed  in gardens all over town where people pay money to be able to walk through these gardens and then take pictures with us the belles.

We also go to the garden parties and we stand around smiling all day while we get pearl tan lines.


 Any One Tree Hill fans?? You should recognize him.




Yes, we also had to wear these underneath.

Coral Blazer & Fruit Pizza

Who is ready for the weekend??? THIS GIRL!!

Blazers have always been a favorite piece of mine. You can make an outfit really classy or you can wear a t-shirt underneath to grunge it down a bit. Either way, I love them! This coral blazer is perfect. I absolutely love the color coral and it is really comfortable to wear.

I found this blazer on sale for $15 at Forever 21. I also found some other items during their flash sale and with coupons.com I got an extra 21% off! Be sure to get some of these deals and sales for yourself using  Forever 21 deals and American Eagle coupon codes!

We were just hanging out as usual last night and they surprised me with a fruit pizza for my birthday! Seriously meant so much and I just love these girls a lot! And it was definitely delicious!

"Best T-Shirt Ever"

I love Audrey Hepburn. Always have. Her pictures are in my room, I own her movies and I own big sunglasses to pretend to be her. So that makes me a big fan right?? Nope, not compared to the guy I met in the grocery store...

So I was in the store buying some groceries and randomly this deep voice from behind me says, "you are wearing the best t-shirt ever." It actually startled me a lot, but I turned around to agree and thank him (thinking to myself that it's a little strange that a man is telling me this). 

Once I saw him I realized, yes he may actually be a bigger fan than me. He had perfectly spiked hair, bigger sunglasses than me, and the brightest pink nails I have ever seen. He went on to say that he just loved my shirt. He began to tell me all the many Audrey Hepburn posters he has hanging on his wall. He told me that Audrey would be proud of me for wearing her face on my chest. Exact words. And that she was the greatest woman who ever lived and she has always been his favorite actress.

Well sir, I do agree, "best t-shirt ever".

For this shirt and others like it at Forever, you can find great deals and savings using Forever 21 coupon codes!
