Coffee First

Happy Monday friends! One of my favorite parts of the morning (especially Mondays) is using my Keurig to brew a cup of coffee. I've tried a variety of different coffee pods, but I think I've found one of my new favorites!

I just recently got a bag of CafĂ© 504 K-cups that I have been drinking each morning for the past few weeks! The coolest part about this product is they are mineral infused so I could definitely tell a difference. Basically that means they infuse the minerals into coffee beans for a smooth, rich taste! 

You guys can try it for yourselves by clicking here, and for a FREE first bag use the code: 'FIRSTFREE'. The bag I have comes with 24 pods, and you can do a monthly subscription for $20/month! So brilliant because I literally am so upset if I am out of K-cups.

Start by taking the quiz that matches where you live, and you choose what water you use when brewing your coffee to help order the correct blend! Not only is the coffee amazing, but they are a supporter of World Vision. With every box purchased, you can help provide economic opportunity hundreds of gallons of clean water to farmers in Honduras. 

Let me know your thoughts if you guys order! 

Have a great week! 

Thank you Cafe´ 504 for the opportunity to collaborate! All opinions are my own.

Favorite Summer Accessories

I have a pretty extensive statement earring collection and one of my all time favorite brands is Stella and Ruby ! They have beautiful stand out pieces that you are sure to get a ton of compliments on. The first pair I styled were these coral chiffon earrings. Not only was a drawn to the color but I really do love how lightweight they are! 

Hoops have really come back full swing, so I absolutely fell in love with these floral hoops from Stella and Ruby! What a fun twist on the classic hoop. I styled them here with a floral top, but you could do an all neutral outfit with the hoop your pop of color! 

Which pair is your favorite?! 

Thank you Stella and Ruby for the opportunity to collaborate- all opinions are my own. 

Graduation Season - Unique Graduation Invites

This past weekend I celebrated my little sister's college graduation! I cannot believe she is the last of our siblings to graduate, and now she is off to South Carolina to start her new job in June. I love this time of the year seeing all the high school and college graduates figuring out their next steps in life. I remember it being such an exciting time! 

What a better way to celebrate graduation than with a unique graduation invitation!  Basic Invite has so many choices for senior picture graduation invitations or announcements to share with friends and family. I know my little sister took so many beautiful pictures around campus with her cap and gown that would look perfect on these! The best part about them is they make a great keepsake to put in your memory box as well! 

You may be thinking, okay what makes Basic Invite different than any other invitation company? Well, they are one of the few websites that allows customers with almost unlimited color options! Once you choose a design, you can change each design element with their color options so it's personalized exactly how you want it! So perfect for high school grads, to get their exact school colors! Or you can match it to the theme of your graduation party. Trust me, when my little brother went to The University of Tennessee, I quickly learned that color orange was a very specific shade haha! 

Once you get the colors right on your actual invite you get over 40 different colors to choose from for the envelopes. I am definitely drawn to any mail that isn't in a white envelope! Um, hello this is a Legally Blonde moment with the pink resume am I right?! 

When I work with personalized items, it's hard for me to pull the trigger without seeing the item! I always wish that I could see it in person beforehand. Basic Invite allows you to order a printed sample of the invite so that you are able to see how it will look, and paper quality prior to placing an order!

Once you actually get the invites, you may be dreading addressing all of them. Basic Invite helps make your life easier with their address capturing service. This allows customers to share a link on their social media accounts to request family and friend's addresses. They are then stored in your account to be selected when designing! The addresses will be printed for no cost on card orders- so a total bonus in my book. Plus this makes it look super professional! 

If you're looking for some extra flair you can do folded graduation invitations  or foil cards! The foil is available in gold, silver or rose gold. Plus you can even choose if you want flat or raised foil on all of their designs. 

So if you're looking for graduation invites or any other kind of stationary Basic Invite is offering 15% off with the code: 15FF51 

Congratulations to all those graduates out there! Including my baby sis, so proud of you! 

I hope you guys have a great Monday! Be sure to check out Basic Invite on their Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter accounts as well! 

Thank you Basic Invite for sponsoring today's post! All opinions are my own.

Monogrammed Tassel Clutch

Each season I crave different items. Around the fall it's usually fur or leopard, Christmas/New Years bring in the sparkle, and then you have spring/summer which mean all the tassels!

At the beginning of spring I love when all the bright colors and patterns begin to show up. It means the start of sunshine! I try to wear color all year round, but I save the brightest of brights for this time of year. I was immediately drawn to this monogrammed tassel clutch from Marleylilly because it made me smile! I love when you find an item that makes you happy just by looking at it.

This clutch is lined with neon TASSELS and personalized with a monogram in the center. It really screams vacation, but I would love to take it to happy hours or date nights as well. Here, I styled it with white jeans, a neon pink ruffled top and some nude heels. But you could also do a simple black outfit with the clutch as a pop of color!

The best part is it's on sale for only $14.99 right now! It would also make the perfect gift for brides to use on their honeymoon with their new initials. Trust me, if they are anything like me they have a lot of monograms to re-do! Or for a future graduates you could put a little gift card in the clutch for a sending off present! So many possibilities! 

Be sure to check out their site for the latest flash sales. Marleylilly always have the best stuff! 

Thank you Marleylilly for the opportunity to collaborate! All opinions are my own. 

Springtime Finds

Happy April! I feel like this year is really cruising by. I am so ready for sunshine though! I was in Columbus last weekend and it was literally snowing.. brrrr. Even more reason for me to be dreaming of the warm weather and new springtime accessories. I've complied some of my recent favs! You can shop by either clicking the photo or on my links below! 

Blue Light Glasses - I just ordered these today because I am looking at a computer/phone screen all day everyday. This pair has several color options and is under $20! I also figured I would test them out with a cheaper pair versus some of the more expensive ones I've seen. 

Pink Statement Earrings - I know I know I have a statement earring problem but these ones are perfect to add to your spring wardrobe! Plus they're on sale for $25! 

Leopard Keychain Pouch - This is perfect for errands to put your credit card/ ID in and attach right to your keyring. Sometimes I hate carrying around a big bag to the grocery store! The best part is it's under $8! What a steal. 

Nude Peeptoe Booties - A spring staple. I usually get a new pair of these each spring/summer because I wear them almost everyday! Between work and outings, they get tons of use. 

Vacay Sweatshirt - Great for travel and summer nights! I love throwing on a sweatshirt with denim shorts.

Sunnies - I just got a pair of basic black sunnies and I LOVE them! Perfect to pair with anything all spring/summer long.

Bow Hairties - These have been all the rage lately and I can't get enough of them!

I hope you guys are having a good week! 

The Perfect Monogrammed Tote

We almost made it through the week! It has warmed up so much here in Pittsburgh, it feels like Spring! The warmer weather is making me crave patio happy hours and lightweight clothing. I love starting new seasons with a different handbag and I found the perfect one for Springtime! 

I'm always in search of a tote that is great for travel and everyday use. Not to mention one that you can use all year round. The Charlotte Handbag from Marleylilly checks off all these boxes! It's lined on the inside and comes in two colors. The best part is you can customize the thread color/monogram font. I chose to do the "octagonal" lettering because I loved the way it looked on the bag. You can actually see what each font will look like before you purchase! Just click the personalize button, type in your initials and choose which font you want to see. 

I styled this bag a couple different ways. First, with a fun graphic tee and pink shag cardi. The neutral color means you can really pair it with anything! I've gotten so many compliments on the chain detail as well. 

I also paired it with a chunky sweater, a leopard fur jacket and some oversized sunnies! I've been using it for work these past couple weeks, and it fits my planner perfectly. I love that you don't have to fish around to find something. It's not too big or too small. It also has a snap closure across the top and a zip pocket inside. 

I'll definitely be getting a ton of use out of this bag! It's on sale for less than $45 right now, which includes personalization. With Valentine's Day next week it would also make the perfect gift!

Hope you guys have a good Friday tomorrow!

Valentine's Day Goodies

I've picked out some of my favorite goodies for Valentines Day! Whether you need ideas to give to your man OR if you just want some fun ideas for yourself! You can shop directly by clicking on the items in the photo or through the links below!

Eve Hoop Earrings: I love the blush color and I'm all about a good statement. These are on sale for less than $20!

Smooch Clutch: TOO CUTE for words! I mean how can you not grab this for the 14th?!

Rainbow Ring: I just ordered this last week because I tried on my Blogger Bestie Jen's! It is perfect for everyday wear, and it brings just enough color to any outfit.

Dainty Necklace: I am all about cute dainty jewelry! I love the bold red, and I've linked a similar one on my photo!

Blush Mid Top Sneaker: I am dying for a pair of these. They would transition so nicely into spring!

Basics Pallete: All of the perfect colors for your everyday eye shadow! I actually bought myself a Naked pallete for Valentine's a few years ago and I still use it!

Drinks Well with Others - Valentine's Day Edition!

I am a BIG theme person! Give me a theme and I'm the first person to go all out. So with Valentine's Day coming up you know I'm all about the pink, red and hearts. 

The January Monobox from  I Love Jewelry includes the cutest pieces that are so fun for Feb 14th! And you only have a few days left to order it! The first item in the box is a heart sweatshirt that comes with your monogram in red script. I am wearing a size Large so it would be a little oversized. You also get a heart cup (which is perfect for wine I might add) and a heart shaped choker. I'm actually currently drinking out of mine while watching The Bachelor! (ps. who are your favs?!)

The Monobox is only $21.95/month and you get the best goodies! You can also add on the Swag Bag which is $10 and you get the adorable candy heart pj pants that I'm wearing in the top picture. They are super soft and have your monogram in white script. I've been living in them the past few days!

I get so excited to see what will come in my Monobox each month and the best part is the personalization. You definitely need to check it out! 

Wishing you the best week! 

New Year, Less Clutter!

I hope everyone survived the holidays! I know for me this is definitely still such a busy time at work and just getting back into the swing of things. We started the year off with our closet breaking which forced me to clear it out and go through each item! So, not entirely a bad thing, but definitely not ideal.

I've been watching You Tube decluttering videos to get me in the decluttering mood. It's so hard to get motivated to deep clean like this though. Anyone else get super overwhelmed?! I've learned to just take it section by section in order to make it all manageable. The KonMari method says you should hold each item and ask yourself, 1. Does this bring me joy? 2. Would I purchase this again if I was at the store? I'm so thankful that my parents and sister came yesterday to help tackle this project! I have some other little spaces I need to go through this week like my bar cart and the coat closet.

One of the best parts about a closet clean out is finding items you didn't even remember you had! For me, one of them was this hot pink turtleneck sweater. I actually bought this back in the fall and never wore it that much. It's originally from Express, but I found it at Gabe's for a fraction of the price! I was inspired by my friend Jen (@chicandcheaplifestyles) who loves Gabe's. I definitely need to go back soon just to see what other finds they may have. I paired it with a multicolored clutch, another sale find from Nordstrom Rack! Also my hoops are on sale for only $14!

Pink Sweater (similar) / Clutch (similar) / Earrings- Only $14 

I hope everyone had an awesome Monday! I'm currently watching The Bachelor! Who are your favs?!
