Good afternoon! I’m wishing everyone here in the USA a happy late Memorial Day because my Monday post went up early, so I wasn’t in the Memorial Day spirit yet at the time. I hope everyone enjoyed their long holiday weekend and spent it with their friends and family, remembering those who have served our country. I didn’t have any big plans; my mom and I went to visit my brother. We had lunch and went to a farmers market. All in all, it was a pretty great weekend.

Earlier this year I bought this crop top from the Red Dress Boutique and never had the chance to wear it because of the weather. Now, summer is in the air, and I’ve pulled all of my shorts and tank tops from the depths of my closet. I finally got to wear it!!! I paired it with these high waisted, hot pink shorts from Apricot Lane for a preppy, conservative look. Say hi to Ty in my sunglasses!


Being outside right now is my favorite thing. It could be doing anything. Lately I have been biking everywhere and going on long walks. I’ve even started mowing my lawn. You could get me to do anything now, I swear, as long as it is outside. I’ve even decided to start my own garden. Yesterday I planted two jalapeño plants, one green pepper and one orange pepper plant and two cherry tomato plants. Today I am painting pots for basil, oregano, parsley and cilantro. We’re never going to have to go to the grocery store again (okay, that’s a slight exaggeration)! I’m seriously embracing nature this year- even more than last year.


I’m happy to announce that my time with Rocksbox has gotten me back into the swing of accessorizing. In the last month, I’ve bought two new piece of quality jewelry and have actually gotten my use out of them. My jewelry is no longer collecting dust at the bottom of my jewelry box. This cuff bracelet is currently on sale for over 50% off, so make sure to grab it up while it’s still around. While we’re talking about sales; these Jack Rogers are on sale for 53% off!


I also had the amazing opportunity to receive this necklace courtesy of A-List Greek. Moving forward and not knowing quite where I’m going has allowed me to reflect on and embrace all of the special memories I have and places I’ve been. When A-List Greek reached out to me, wanting to share their jewelry with me, I was ecstatic to hear that they offer custom jewelry in addition to their Greek items. A custom coordinates gold bar necklace is something I have been searching for for a while now. So many places offer them, but more often than not, they’re pricey. A-List Greek is extremely affordable and just as high of quality. If you’re looking for custom jewelry, be sure to check out all of the options A-List Greek offers. They have gold, silver and rose gold options in different types of necklaces and bracelets. You can add anything you want onto your jewelry – names, coordinates, phrases, roman numerals.  I’ve been wearing my necklace almost everyday now and no matter where I go, I’ll always have my special place around my neck with me.


I’ve been such a happy camper lately! I’ve never felt so blessed. It truly is the little things in life. While editing these pictures today I was even feeling grateful to live in a place that has a gazebo by the river. What a silly thing to be grateful for, right? But standing in the gazebo in the middle of the night with the roof and pillars lit up all around me, watching the water flow beneath the bridge is the most calming sight I’ve seen in a long time. Whatever graduation has done to me, I like it.
