Saw it, Pinned it, Did it!

So confession first of all, I saw this on Katie's blog and HAD to do it! So I guess it's not a SPD, but it's close! I had seen plenty of apothecary jars all over Pinterest but none of them strikes my fancy like this idea did!

I did a guest bathroom-travel-size-apothecary jar! 

I got the jar from Marshall's and thought it would be too big! But after I got it home and filled it up, I needed a bigger one! 


I filled it with:
-Soap
-Shampoo & Conditioner
-Shaving cream
-Toothpaste 
-Toothbrush with cover
-Mouthwash
-Hairspray
-Hair elastics
-Face wash wipes
-Q-tips
-Deodorant
-Floss
-Sunscreen
-Downy wrinkle releaser
-Lint roller



I absolutely love it! I want to add a medium sized jar with all the soaps Jeremy's mom gave us and a small one with cotton balls! 
...but one small step at a time! 

So yay, come on Jamie & Rachel! I got ya if you forget anything!


Be sure to link up with Steph & Katie for Saw it, Pinned it, Did it every Thursday!

Summer Wedding Styling

Wedding Season is in full force so it's time to start planning your outfits!

Summer Wedding Style

For a mid-day or early afternoon wedding keep it light and simple! A fun colored sun dress with nude accessories! Wedges are ok for a wedding in the afternoon and a cute watch with dainty accessories are perfect!


Evening Wedding
An evening wedding needs some class! Wear a classic dress, something either very girly and frilly or very structured and put together! I love this lace dress with pearls and some gorgeous ankle strap heels! Keep the jewelry to a minimum or wear pearls. If you're questioning something then probably don't go with it, thats my rule!



black tie wedding

Oh the black tie wedding! I have never been to one but I know of one coming up for me later on this year! I suggest a long gown or very formal dress. Go with a dark color, emerald, blues, purples! Stay away from black, a wedding is happy time, you won't be mourning anything! Keep jewelry to a complete minimum and possibly just some studs and a single bangle! Wear your nicest heels and carry a small clutch!

.....................................
Most importantly- wear what makes you feel comfortable and pretty! Don't try to stand out too much, remember, this is NOT your day! Don't ever wear white and keep your lady parts covered!
Even more importantly- have fun!

Everything


I try to keep this in mind daily, without God I have nothing. With him, I have it all! I saw this little quote cutely done on Instagram the other night and I can't stop thinking about it, it's so true!

May y'all have a very blessed Sunday with our Lord & Savior!

Life Lately

Hey Dolls! 
Whew, can life slow down? I mean dang! I know the past few Mondays I have been MIA, I had post planned but not composed so whomp, fail there. Those posts were basically weekend recaps and keeping y'all updated on my little life! So since I've been so dead every Sunday night and unable to write I figured I would cram two weeks into one post, on a random Thursday! Whooo!

Mother's Day weekend I had to work both Saturday & Sunday. Luckily a co-worker managed to come in early on Sunday so I could head home and surprise my momma! 
She was so shocked and we spent the afternoon out on the lake and soaking up the sun!

Sydney & my second momma!

For momma's day I decided to give her all of her favorite wines and put labels on them with our picture! She LOVED them! Best gift ever award, right here!



Labels from iCustomWine

Last weekend was my little sisters graduation party! Friday night I let her open everything I got her and she loved it all! I now think everything she owns is monogrammed!
Cooler- A&A Embroidery
Bag, Towel Wrap, Chevron Cup- R&D Designs
Koozie- KHP Embroidery
Tervis- The Monogrammed Martini (the decal is INSIDE! not out! yay!)
Long Sleeve Shirt- Shop Dandy

 She graduated high school and is headed to NC State in the fall, I am one proud big sister! Her and her best friend Sydney had their party together and it was such an awesome party! 



Sydney & Jenna are sisters and Jenna is moving to Charlotte in August to attend UNCC! It will be so nice having her close to me!

Cupcake Cake!



Brooke's dress- Belk
My dress & necklace- Vestique

Ok, I'm exhausted all over again thinking about the past two weekends! And next weekend I get to do it all over again! Ah!
