Pretty Things & A Giveaway!

I feel prettttty oh so pretttttty

(ok guys give me a break, I never said I could sing...)

Some of you may or may not know that I have an unhealthy obsession with handmade shops.

Sometimes I think I need to join some group where we all sit in a circle, stare at each other, stand up, state our name (have everyone say in unison 'hi insert name here') and we all just spill our guts out about all the ballin' shops we love, buy, and wear all.the.time.

So instead of a circle group meeting I'm gonna use a blog post to give you a peek into some of my etsy/big cartel purchases that make me feel oh so preeeeetty (ok, promise I'll stop with the singing now--maybe)

Big Darling Ruffle Headband from Just Lovely Things
(True Story: I wore this to work and the President of my company thought I was wearing 1/2 an earmuff. Yes, sir, I left the other side at home...the right ear wasn't getting along with the left ear so it was just best to separate them)

 Lemonade Genevieve Ribbon and Pearl Necklace by Twilly Pop
She makes THEE BEST pearl necklaces that are really great quality and extremely affordable. I love that I can dress it up or down--and the fact that its yellow really doesn't hurt either ;) )


Side Note: Whenever I hear "Twilly Pop" I instantly get N SYNC's song "Dirty Pop" stuck in my hear, but I replace "dirty" with "twilly" cause I'm extra cool like that.

(summer staple--please what DOESN'T go with teal and red?! The answer is everything goes with teal and red)

my cheeks match my poppies. totally planned that.

(ok, kinda obsessed with her shop--and by kinda I mean holy cow HECK YES I'm obsessed)

Lacey Mustard Yellow Bow Felt Clip by Sandy a la Mode
(sad story: Sandy closed shop for the time being, so I was MEGA stoked to nab this lovely before she shut down. BUT every cloud does have a silver lining and you can keep up with Sandy on her blog! WIN!)

I know you guys wish you could look this gangsta while jumping in the air--you'll get there one day, it takes skillz.

(yes, love love LOVE this bib necklace)

Cream Petal Necklace by Dainty Loops
(I seriously wear this necklace almost every day. Light weight, simple, and goes with all my gnarly colored tops. Again, total win)



(I alternate this little beauty with my much love illy swag. Super comfy and super fun)

 Turban Headband By Kim (Hemmed In)
(you mean I get to wear mustard yellow AND have a headband that is inspired by the 1950s? Ok, if you insist...)



Speaking of Pretty Things, Rumor has it a lot of you guys make pretty things all day long...is this true?

Cause if it is check out my giveaway that I have going on!

  4. Of course I'm a follower! And lately, I haven't been able to STOP making pretty things. ;] So modest, I know. I've been making yarn wreaths (they're so much fun), cross-stitching (just started & it's so addictive), handmade thank you & birthday cards and right now I'm making a tutu for the prettiest little girl in my life!
