Our favorite part about blogging is connecting with other blogger beauties! There’s something so motivational and supportive about the blog community! Recently, the babe behindFashionLushsent us a package of bloggy goodies that totally brightened our week! Take a look at a few of our favorite items below. Hope you like them — we’re obsessed with the new Skinny Confidentialbook & Erica’s (FashionLush boss lady) hand painted arrows!! Also newly drooling over thePrana Headband & all their cute athletic gear!
Last weekend was my beautiful friend Brittney’s birthday! It was so much fun! We had the best girl’s day that started with a hike through a forest oasis of super-tall trees and waterfalls. Afterwards, we headed back to her place and painted inspirational life quotes on canvases. It was so relaxing and fun to just forget the real world, sip beer, and paint!
Brittney bought canvases at JoAnn’s fabrics for less than $7 a pack (talk afforadable!), and threw around some fun paints, glitters, and metallic pens for us to craft with. It was the perfect afternoon! We chatted about upcoming weddings (why are all of my friends getting engaged?! CRAZY!), ate salad, watched How to Get Away With Murder, and were pretty much as girlie as it gets! Such a fun afternoon, and definitely one to replicate for any east-coasters stuck in the snow! Check out our photos below for some inspiration! Think mason jars, Martha Stewart glitter, and salad-while-you-paint (aka.. excuse the salad bowl remnants in our shots! Girls gotta eat!)
^^ My canvas? “Friends, lovers, and glasses of wine. 3 things that should never be counted.” AMEN SISTAS! (+ a little teal glitter heart – it looks like a blob here because I was waiting for the glitter to dry!)
