So I have been a little MIA lately.

I am not going to lie, life took over for a little bit and it was hard for me to balance everything. Sometimes when you have things come up in your personal life, it is good to prioritize, and I decided to take a few weeks to focus a little bit on different life projects rather than the blog. In the last few weeks, I was working a ton at my day job as a Marketing Supervisor, planning for a vacation (and then going on the vacation last week) and finishing what I would call my “Closet Room”.

I still live at home with my parents (I may have Peter Pan syndrome and never want to grow up), or it may be that I prefer spending my money on vacations and clothing, rather than a mortgage for now, so I figure if I have the opportunity, then why not.

Today, you can take a little look into my new space! I decided to make the space EXTREMELY different from my bedroom (which is mostly neutral), and add lots of color. I figured a room like this is meant to be fun and girly, so why not add feminine touches everywhere?

Today I decided to chill out in my favorite pair of socks EVER by Woven Pear (seriously how cute is that Narwhal print?) and browse through my Chatbooks collection. As probably most of you are, I am obsessed with photos and Instagram! So what is better, than to combine those two elements! They send you a 60 page book of your latest Instagram posts, and in the process they allow you to pick a cover photo, include captions, locations and also eliminate any photos you may not feel are “print-worthy”.

I decided to print out all of my photos since I first stated my blogging adventure and it was so fun to see where I have come from! To take a look back at some of my very first photos, made me laugh a little (those filters and light effects look a little dated now lol). But it allowed me to reminisce and take a step back and realize why I do this blog every day. I do it because I LOVE it. No, I don’t make millions of dollars, and no I don’t have 100′s of thousands of followers, but I do it for me and the joy it brings me to see what I can come up with next.

I hope all of you can find something that you are truly passionate about and at least just try it. You may be the biggest success ever, or you may fail miserably, but they key is, is that until you try, you’ll never know!

Happy Monday and thank you all again for reading everyday, it means everything and more!

So we all know that I am generally an uber fancy person :)

But every once in a while, I love just putting on some comfy, casual clothes. I thought this was the perfect easy weekend outfit. It has a certain street style about it and I was actually told by a few people how much they liked the camo jacket and bicycle sweatshirt together.

If you are needing to wear something casual for a quick lunch, a day movie or even running errands, you can never go wrong with some rolled skinny jeans, nude booties and some fun graphic prints.

Hope you have all had a good long weekend and I’ll see you for the Trend Spin Linkup tomorrow!

‘Pal’entines Day with Shari’s Berries

Today I am taking you inside my ‘Pal’entines Day event with Shari’s Berries!

You may be asking what a ‘Pal’entines day exactly is? It is actually a way to celebrate the relationships you have with your friends around Valentines Day! Although we normally think of Valentines Day as a way to celebrate with your honey, it can be about multiple types of love :)

Take a look into what I planned for a fun night out with the girlfriends!

sharis_berries

I started out by arranging some of my favorite Shari’s Berries goodies on the table for all to share! From the chocolate covered strawberries, to the dipped pretzels, decadent cookies, and of course the irresistible “conversation heart” cake pops, I knew my girlfriends would be enamored with all of these festive themed treats.

To make this a fun and fancy night out, I decided to slip into my favorite ASOS floral dress, but before doing so, I made some final touches by sprinkling rose petals and mini conversation hearts around the table.

It also gave me a good excuse to pull out the hand-painted china my grandmother passed down to me! It added the perfect amount of feminine detail for the occasion and it also allowed me to remember a very important lady in my life.

//Dress : ASOS ~ Treats : Shari’s Berries (c/o)//

While you could definitely host this fun night at any house, I decided to make it a little night getaway by renting a room down at The Grand America Hotel! The aesthetics of this hotel is the perfect way to celebrate with any loved one and if you live in the Salt Lake area, I would completely recommend it.

I hope you have all enjoyed having a look into my night. It was definitely a night to remember! And make sure to place your Shari’s Berries for this Valentines Day celebrations.

THE CANVAS - 

Coat : Trina Turk ~ Sweater : Nordstrom ~ Leggings : Express (similar) ~
Boots : Burberry ~ Purse : Louis Vuitton ~ Sunglasses : similar pair ~
Gloves : The Limited ~ Hat : H&M

This is an outfit I wore while attending Sundance a few weekends ago.

It is family tradition that we always go up to Park City, Utah on the first Sunday of Sundance! It is a fun day to walk up and down main street, enjoy some breakfast, take in the mountain air…and obviously sight see, for CELEBRITIES haha.

Since it is usually quite cold during that time of year, I tend to layer up with boots, turtlenecks and cozy coats. This year was no exception.

One thing I love is seeing all of the fashion up in Park City and Deer Valley during the film festival, because women are decked in their best fur coats, killer boots and are rocking some AMAZING handbags (can we talk about purse envy).

What are some traditions you always do with your family?
