Personalized Gift

Gift giving can be a stressful thing for many people. I love finding the right gift for someone and seeing how excited they are when they open it.  With Christmas just a little over 2 months ago, many of us are burnt out on figuring out what to give our friends and family. 
When I think about my favorite gifts that I've given and received, they are the ones that are more thoughtful or meaningful! 

About a year ago I was in a local boutique and found some pretty bracelets with phrases and sayings engraved on them. I then learned about the brand MantraBand and fell in love with all of their bracelets. After some careful deliberation I finally picked out "Oh, the places you'll go" and wear that bracelet almost everyday.

The bracelet sayings are put into categories: Peace, Love, Happiness, Strength, and Journey! There is really something for almost every situation. Here are some of my favorites!

Recently I needed a birthday gift for a close friend and thought a MantraBand bracelet was perfect. Its so fun to look thru all the sayings and find one that fit what my friend had been going thru lately! These bracelets are so pretty and high quality. I love to wear mine on its own or layered with other bracelets.  I also love that the engraving is subtle and its almost like the saying is just something for you that not everyone else can see!

Best Dressed Guest

Although I seem to have weddings on my calendar year round, the Spring and early Summer always seem to be the busy wedding season! This time of year I like to get a new dress (or two) to add to my collection so I'm ready for the upcoming weddings and parties. One of my best friends since childhood is getting married in a few weeks in New Orleans so I've been in search of a great dress to wear to the wedding. This big event calls for something really special. As I've been looking I have saved some of my favorites and wanted to share some of the great dresses I've found!

1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 12

I'll be sharing the dress I'm wearing in a few weeks!
