Garden Party

It’s Wednesday everyone-Happy Hump Day!!

This Hump day, I’d like to share a little NWA Secret(ok, it’s actually not a secret!) that I’ve recently discovered!
If you haven’t been to the Botanical Gardens of the Ozarks, you MUST go!
A few weeks ago before I sent my lovely boyfriend off riding his motorcycle to Cali, we took a visit to these wonderful gardens! I wanted to share my pictures, and of course what I wore!
First though, I took a visit to the Fayetteville Farmers Market and got some sunflowers and fresh from the garden carrots! (They just celebrated their 40th anniversary, how cool is that!)

My outfit of the day was a blue romper and watercolor overlay both from Savoir Faire, Chain Crochet jewelry, Steve Madden silver wrap sandals and Raybans of course!


and since I’m in the mood for some lovely flowers, I thought I’d share some of my favorites!Image


That’s it for today! I’m so excited about tomorrows post-I’ll be sharing my newly redecorated room, YAY! Have a great rest of your day!

The Succulent Story.

Happy Monday to all!
Ok, so today I wanted to mix things up a bit. I’m not doing a story about fashion-nor beauty-nor DIY, but one of the latest floral trends!! Which are succulents!
So you might ask, what is a succulent? A succulent is a plant/flower that is thicker and “juicier” than normal plants/flowers because they retain water. Think Aloe Vera!

Succulents have been around for as long as flowers have been around, so basically for forever, but just recently are people warming up to the idea of them being pretty! Lately, I’ve become obsessed with them! I think the reason they’re getting to be so popular is because A)They’re such an interesting looking plant! 
B) They are great indoor plants that only need to be watered a few times a week-easy peasy!

My favorite floral shop in Fayetteville, Pigmint has recently been using succulents in bouquets for weddings and just regular flower arrangements! And I’ve seen them all over pinterest and of course, I had to make a succulent garden for my window sill! Here are some of Pigmint’s designs:


{all above images from}

And of course some lovely inspiration from



and also from Flora Grubb Gardens in San Diego, CA {you should probably check out their website like, now}



And of course my very own succulent garden in my window sill!





As you can see, I wasnt a huge fan of the plain clay pots I put my plants in, so I hot glued twine around the bottoms to make it a little more fun!


That’s basically all for my succulent story! I promise you, they’re SO easy to maintain and I guarantee you’ll love them! (ok, well if you don’t love the pictures I have then you might not but hey I tried)

Have a fabulous week lovely ladies{and classy gents)!
{lastly, some words of wisdom}

Its Gunna Be May…

Happy May First everyone! 
(did you see what I did there-N’ Sync anyone?? ok, I’m done)

First off-SO sorry to not have posted in literally almost a month! What have I been thinking!? Who knows really. Well, let me fill you in on my life so far-

First of all, this girl is officially a working girl! (WHOOP-WHOOP!)

If you havn’t heard of Impressions, I definitely beg you to come in, look on facebook, or go to our website! My newest adventure is at this lovely little boutique, and not only do we have some of the cutest clothes, but literally anything you could want-Butter Nail Polish, Mothers Day gifts, Shoes, Purses, Jeans(AG, True Religion, need I say more?) oh and even stuff for your man! Seriously, this place is heaven of all things. Come see me today from 12:30-6! 

In other news, I’ll be staying in Fayetteville this summer! WOOO-literally so excited about this. 

Ok, I’m sure you’re all bored with my life stories so I’ll get to the story!

Since today is the very first day of May, I wanted to share some beautiful flowers with you! Lately, I’ve become almost obsessed with flowers, it’s actually kind of strange. I’m sure you remember my story on Flower Crowns a while ago, well let me tell you-I’ve definitely bought 2 more since that post! (oops…) Today however I just wanted to focus on extra pretty flowers, and what occasions they can be for! 
For this story on flowers, I wanted to actually focus on my absolute FAV place to get them-which is Pigmint. This absolutely ADORABLE floral shop is located on 617 N College Ave in Fayetteville. It’s in the Airstream trailers! (how cute is that!?) 

Well, every time I’ve been in the owners have been nothing but nice-and super spunky too! They literally can create things for any event/occasion, at basically any price point! (I got some extra pretty flowers for just $20 the other day!) So, I’m sure you all want to see the beauties I’m talking about, so allow me to share some of their amazing pics-


aren’t these lovely? (they were mine!)ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

this is their adorable little airstream!ImageImageand a pic from one of their photoshoots with the fabulous Kelly Stuckey (that’s my hairdresser! She’s seriously such a beautiful person inside and out btw!)Image


That’s really all I’ve got for today! I’ll try to keep you all update, buuuut finals week is next week so no promises! Until next time pretty readers,
