Here Ye, Here Ye: School Is Back In Session

“Let today be the start to something new.”

I have always been the one who loved back to school shopping from new clothes to new shoes, a fresh box of crayola crayons and everything in between. I may be out of school now, but back to school shopping is still something I love and participate in. I still reward myself with back to school goodies in September. So I thought I would share with y’all my favorite back to school must have essentials. Here’s to an amazing new school year !

Yes Pleases of the Week

“Sugar, Yes Please.”

My favorite time of the week is here, it is my Yes Pleases of the Week. I love being able to share with y’all my current obsessions . My hope with this weekly series is for us each to inspire one another. Here is to another week of Yes Pleases, fun and inspiration !

Yes Please #1 : Fun Hair Accessories

When I am not wearing a hat (sun or Cubs), I am wearing fun hair accessories like my Perky Pony or my floral hair clips by The Vintage Cosmetic Company. They both along with others add that extra flair for a girls day out, a night out or a fun adventure, Yes Please to all of that !

Yes Please #2: Huckleberry Everything

So I was introduced to Huckleberry when I went to Montana for my friend’s wedding four years ago. I had never heard of this fruit before primarily because it comes from Montana and surrounding areas. I tried it for the first time in the form of a shake in Plains, MT and I fell in love. I say Yes Please to it all from jam to coffee to ice cream from Sweet Peaks and everything else Huckleberry. If you come across it, I say try it and let me know what you think πŸ™‚ (If you are in the San Diego area, Old Town has some πŸ™‚ )

Yes Please #3: Montana Coffee Traders

I recently went to Kalispell, Montana to visit a friend and then we road tripped it back. When I arrived in Kalispell, we stopped at Montana Coffee Traders . Let me tell you, smelled amazing , looked so cute and was delicious. My iced tea and sandwich were fantastic. Next time I am in Kalispell I will definitely be stopping there. An added bonus: being able to buy some goodies for my fan, always a Yes Please !

Yes Please #4: Odd Mom Out on Bravo (premiered on Wednesday, July 12th)

Odd Mom Out had me hooked from their season 1 trailer last year. With Season 2 now in week 2, I am still hooked and it seems to get better and better. I can’t wait to figure out what my favorite episode will be from this new season. It covers real topics, but in a way that is a great escape filled with laughs. Odd Mom Out, Yes Please.

Yes Please #5: All Things Live Love Gameday

I came in contact with Live Love Gameday when I was working on a sports and fashion piece last year. I fell in love with this brand immediately, which includes Burleyson and Blaine along with LLG. I became obsessed not just because it is made in the US via Dallas & run by a fabulous girl boss, Sydney McArthur, but because it is a combo of my two loves: sports and fashion. I continue to rock their pieces on the daily especially when supporting my Chicago Cubs. LLG will always get my Yes Please stamp of approval.

This week’s Yes Pleases were so exciting to compile together. Thanks for being patient after I was off for a bit πŸ™‚ Stay tuned for next week’s Yes Pleases !

P.S. What is something new you have tried that you just can’t seem to get enough of ? I have never been on a road trip before and I am hooked now πŸ™‚

 

What to Give the Woman that has Given Me Everything?

As I write this Mother’s Day is just a couple days away and it gets me thinking every year how lucky I am to have a mom like mine who supports, loves, pushes and allows me to shoot for the stars.

13124537_10153619471005983_8037741934370499390_n-2

When I was little she let me play in dirt, sing like I was the next pop star on my plastic microphone, change my clothes 10 times a day like I was a runway model to letting me pack up my blue suitcase when I was 5 thinking I was moving out. The point of all these stories is that my mom let me be me and continues to let me be me so I ask myself, “How do I choose what to get such an amazing mom the perfect Mother’s Day gift? How do I just pick one thing to get my best friend for this holiday?” So I realized if I am having thoughts about what to get my mom, you all probably are too and if you already know, teach me your ways πŸ™‚

In realizing all of this ‘what to get mom,” I wanted to help not just myself, but you all as well, I decided to put togehter a Mother’s Day gift and activity guide for ideas on what to do and what to gift Mom on this special Mom’s Day! Here are some of favorites:

Music at a Festival…Brings a Flock Together

“There’s nothing like a music festival. People are ready to have a good time. I don’t think anyone comes to a festival going, “I’m gonna be a complete bummer today.” ~ Gary Clark, Jr.

Going to make this short and sweet because I don’t want you all to miss out on all the festival fun. Every year music festivals seem to get bigger and bigger, a lot of it is because music is universal. Music continues and will continue to bring people together.
