Coming out of the blog closet....

It should be no surprise that I love writing this blog,
when I went to TxSc I determined that I no longer wanted to teach high school science anymore,
at least not for 5+ years...

It is time to come out of the blog closet.

Thanks to immense amounts of help from Nicole and Mia we crafted my "Twesume"
It is time to change career paths and be truly happy.


Another big component of "coming out of the blog closet" is my new Media Kit!
I am so thankful for all the help from Stephanie in making my dream Media Kit
Check her out on Etsy at PlatineDesigns!

This has been a seriously amazing experience with Stephanie from PlatineDesigns!
& she was awesome enough to send me a "step by step" "behind the scenes" look
at creating this amazing Media Kit!

I was nervous in the beginning because I can be a little too specific
about the minor details of graphic design projects...
but she was amazingly helpful!

So happy with how it came out!
It is now displayed on my Sponsorship Page!

HUGE THANK YOU TO STEPHANIE! <3

Summa time & blogging's easy...

I forgot how amazing summer is!

Hanging out, "life guarding" an empty pool,
finally getting to read "Tale of Two Besties" by Sophia Rossi & I am loving it!

Also loving the peach green tea lemonade & my new OPI polish "Is Mai Tai Crooked",
perfect orange for the summer!

Home to blog outside on my picnic table + champagne,
I was so happy to learn that I in fact get wifi outside!
BLOGGER LIFE MADE!

I am really enjoying these hydrangeas that a student gave me on the last day of school

Arnold watches from the inside...

Another view from our yard, our hops are growing!
Waiting for the cones to grow, & spotted this neon bug on a leaf!

Celebrated a perfect summer day with some Bent Spoon in Princeton!
I love their espresso shakes with tons of flavors!
This one is mascarpone!




What I Wore: glasses- Steve Madden, lips- Loreal's "Julianne's Red",  necklace- BaubleBar, dress- Milly for Kohls, tied top- Old Navy, sandals- Payless, bag- thrifted Dooney & Bourke

I love this new red lipstick! 
I think it is the perfect red for me!
Just in time for the 4th of July!


Summer, let's slow down,
stay awhile.

Down Under in DE!

Month's ago the hubby and I scheduled a trip to go visit my sister Bianca in Delaware,
upon hearing this, everyone decided to join!

To visit this crazy bully...

It was a weekend of crazy!

Went back to George and Son's for oysters, they are amazing there!

We also did some thrifting!
Not for the current weather but I love this golf sweater & velvet collar plaid christmas top!
Will be perfect with my Christmas loafers that I recently thrifted!

We also went back to the Panache Consignment Shop in Hockessin!


When I saw this little peacock, I knew he needed to come home!


I also finally picked up this church painting that I wanted last time I was in DE,
so happy it was still there!

It is perfect in my guest room!


We also thrifted this awesome mushroom glass planter,
my hubby thrifts the best home stuff!


We added these tasting glasses to our bar cart,
these will come in handy with our next DIY project {a chest freezer kegerator... details coming!}


We also got our dream fruit basket!

We were also lucky enough to go to Twin Lakes Brewing Company,
I love that place!



We also went to eat at La Fia in Wilmington,
this restaurant is good but very expensive
 and the menu was not what we were expecting based on the menu on the website,
 which was disappointing






What I Wore: glasses- BonLook, necklace- Kate Spade {gift from sister}, dress- Francescas, cardigan- Anthropologie, flats- thrifted, bag- 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target


We walked to the Earnest and Scott Taproom for a drink afterwards


Lots of fun,
always a good time with my sisters =)
