Firstly, Happy Good Friday Everyone!!
So I thought I'd start a new segment on my blog called Local Lovin' this will be where I share my favorite new places and local businesses! As you probably know, I've always been a big BIG fan of supporting and shopping local. A lot of my clothing I do buy locally. (not all but I try!) On this little bloggie I've raved a lot about small local business in Grand Haven, Mi. Now that Grand Rapids is my new stomping grounds I'm slowly but surely finding my new favorite places to eat, shop and to buy fresh produce. 
Horrocks is an independent Market that has a GINORMOUS selection of great food, super fresh produce, great greenhouse, home decor and a really really reallyyyyyy awesome candy selection. They pretty much have everything. But of course, as you can tell; my favorite is the floral section. Rachel and I went to Horrocks one day and that girl is quite the visionary she had the idea to shoot some photos which I was kind of iffy about it at first but the girl is obviously brilliant, the photos turned out awesome!
So guys, you must go over to Rachel's page and check her out because she's amazing, and if you come to michigan or if you live in Michigan make sure to head over to Horocks and check it out, It's pretty cool and every time I go It's always fresh new, and trendy.

Have a fab weekend guys!

Closet Ready

Call me a retail junkie but to me there is nothing more perfect and satisfying than finding a new statement piece to add to my closet. (I'm a firm believer in Retail Therapy.) Since you're here I'm assuming you're on the same page as me and nothing is more exhilarating than adding a new "statement" to that wardrobe.
I try really really hard to add something different each season. With any of these colorful pieces you'll be sure you're on trend for this season!

Unexpected Preppy

posted on: Thursday, April 3, 2014

I've always been a big big fan of the structured but girly look.. Over the past couple of years I've really started understanding my personal style.. In the beginning I was quite confused I knew I loved bright colors but then again I'm a huge fan of basics and structured clothing.. When I started going back through my style board on pinterest I noticed a pattern of style it was all kinda "unexpected preppy." Kind of girly but in a way just structured. So I thought I'd put together some photos that I'm absolutely in love with. You can tell is feminine but yet sophisticated. What do you guys think your personal style is?

FINALLY YOU'RE HERE! (and I'm totally stoked about it!) Last Summer I think Matt grilled almost every day (which I am so thankful for!) Yesterday was a very very very very good day, we broke out the grill after Church and grilled up some hotdogs. I think the temperature was around 50 and as of now on the beautiful Monday afternoon it's 55 degrees and by 3pm it's supposed to reach 61!! I have a few errands today and I will be breaking out my sandals! Millie and I have been doing some mild yard work  and what that consists of is picking up sticks.. hahha.. I also shut off the heat and opened all the windows. It's so nice to have all this fresh air and warmth!! Oh sooo happy!

Today's post is a little different than normal I thought I'd start a new series called Brand Focus. JCrew is probably my favorite store, the colors seems so regal but unique. When I found this video I was so intrigued by how everything starts from art and inspiration but then is turned into science and that is how JCrew finds their new innovative colors which we all I believe are in love with. One of my favorite boards on pinterest boards is JCrew's Pink Board I think it's so amazing to see where their minds are when creating new hues.
Watch the video below to see how JCrew goes through the process of choosing their new colors.

One of my favorite things to do is browse around other blogs and see what their "dream home" or what their inspiration is.. I feel like we all have sort of the same idea as far as simplicity I find that most bloggers love the simple and white look to a room.
I've always been a fan of a "muted" room. I find them peaceful, airy and quite relaxing. I thought I'd share some photos and rooms that I am very much inspired by and would love to have in my home one day.
