Life Lately...

Hey folks! I'm popping in quickly today to update you guys on my life as of lately since I have been slightly MIA again. Today I'm heading downtown to take my certification exam for Medical Assisting so wish me good luck, I'm going to need it! 

This past weekend my cousins and I headed to the water park capital of the world, Wisconsin Dells to spend the day getting tan and getting lazy in the lazy river.


It was such a beautiful day and of course I had to enjoy some Dippin' Dots while I was there.


On the way back home we had the most amazing sunset to drive off in. I couldn't help myself from snapping a sunset picture.


The next day we headed to the outlets and I picked up this perfect Kate Spade wallet/clutch. I got such a great deal on it and I love how it can hold so much!

Beautiful Little Fools

Hey blog friends!! If anyone is still around these parts, thanks. I have really sucked at blogging during the summer consistently and from reading other blogs, I see others go through the same thing. I don't know what it is about the summer, but I am rarely on my laptop long enough to get a blog post up. I have been trying to get this post up for a while because I'm excited to introduce you guys to an awesome new blogger and Etsy shop owner! Jenni is such a sweet blogger and I was so excited when she approached me. I am always willing to help out a fellow blogger and think her shop is the cutest thing! I'll let her take over from here...




First of all, thank you so much to Nikki for working with me to bring you all this giveaway! I'm Jenni, but I also sometimes go by Jennis because of a late night mistake one of my friends made with my name and it stuck. I'm currently working at Nordstrom for the summer, but during the school year I attend university in California. I opened my shop, The Beautiful Fools, last month because I love to craft and also because I dream of owning my own business one day and think this is a great way to start on the path to that dream. The name of it was inspired by my blog, The Beautiful Little Fools, which was inspired by The Great Gatsby. I first read the book in freshman English class and instantly fell in love with it along with Fitzgerald. There was a quote by Daisy that really stood out to me it that goes, "I hope she'll be a fool--that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool... You see, I think everything's terrible anyhow... And I know. I've been everywhere and seen everything and done everything." There's something about this quote that has an honest truth to it. I by no means think girls should be fools, but sometimes it's freeing to be a beautiful little fool for a moment.

Doesn't she just sound awesome? I love that her blog name was inspired by The Great Gatsby, that is one of my favorite books. Being the sweetheart that she is, she wants to give one of you lovely ladies any item from her Etsy shop. Just enter below for a chance to win an adorable pair of earrings or a lovely bow!!


Check out Jenni's blog and Etsy shop and show her some love. If you have any questions at all about her or her shop you can contact her here

Favorite Blogs

Happy hump day lovers. Now if you ask me what one of my least favorite things to do is, I would have to say narrowing a list of my favorites, say for example, favorite movies, songs, and especially blogs! It is nearly impossible for me to pick my top 3 favorite blogs because I read over 250 blogs on bloglovin'! But just for the sake of this post and topic, here are 3 blogs that always always always have me coming back for more.




  





If you haven't checked out their blogs already, click on the link and head over to their blogs to give them a little love. They are girls after my own heart and I think that's why I enjoy reading their blogs. I just realized they are all also Florida girls, so maybe that's a sign I need to get my butt down there and meet these lovelies!

Dear Target,

Dear Target,

Oh how you toy with my heart. Your bullseye is just a big ole' hypnosis scheme isn't it?! I could simply need toothpaste, but why do I leave with $50 worth of other crap I didn't even need? And those sales?! Don't get me started on how awesome the sales are, especially after a big holiday, hello 70-90% off!! Plus you're always finding ways for me to save more with the Cartwheel app and your coupons, so for that I thank you. When I go a week without walking through those automatic doors, I feel a slight rash coming on. No matter what my boyfriend says, I don't have a Target obsession, it's more like a love affair. Alright Targs, now stop being so darn cute and taking all my monies from me.

Love,
Target Lover

One Thing...

Happy weekend folks. I'm back in the blogging game today to discuss one "thing" I simply cannot live without. I know there are tons of things in our daily lives that we simply can't help but feel we need constantly, but if you had to absolutely pick one thing (not a person, but an object) what would it be?

My iPhone

I mean I was born into a technology filled world and the phone is an outlet into so many different things and people. The smartphone has been a great invention because it connects us to the internet, family all around the world, and a obnoxious games like candy crush. What would we all do if we had to go just one day without our phones? 

I personally feel like my phone is the one thing I couldn't live without because I use it constantly for Instagram, Facebook, Bloglovin, Snapchat, Pandora, Google and of course the calling/texting purpose. Without my phone I couldn't talk to A or text him, without my iPhone I couldn't FaceTime him and make our worlds not seem so far apart. Lastly, I wouldn't get these overly sweet texts from this amazing man...





This guy, just knows the way to my heart :)!

Five People...

Hola amigas (assuming mostly all of you are women). I'm not typically the type to blog on Saturdays, but this month will have to be an exception because these writing prompts from Juliette & friends are just too great to pass up. I also feel like I'm a real blogger again by writing more frequently.

If you had to pick 5 people, dead or alive, to have a dinner date with who would it be? This question gets asked more often than you would think and I know, for me, the answer changes each time. There are definitely more than 5 people I would love to meet, but if I had to narrow it down it would have to be the following people.

Princess Diana
Talk about that amazing resting bitch face she is sporting, I love her!!
Not only did Di birth two attractive princes, but she was kind of like a rebellious princess during her time. I recently saw the movie Diana portrayed by Naomi Watts and it gave me a new insight into her very public life. She was taken away far too early from the world and I would just love to chit chat with her about princess stuff and get some dirty secrets about her life.

Beyonce

Basically she is always going to be in my top 5 because I mean it's Queen Bey! I love this woman, the power and sensuality that she exudes about herself is just breathtaking. Whenever I talk about her A says I slightly light up, which may not be too far from the truth. I'm not sure if I would even talk if we had dinner together because I would be too busy freaking out, but I definitely want to meet her sometime in my lifetime. Also it was almost impossible to pick just one picture of her because she looks amazing in all of her pictures, but I had to settle for one with her looking like a Queen.

Gotta be sporting my 'What Would Beyonce Do?' tank

Jennifer Lawrence

I had to pick a classic J.Law pic because she is the most realest chick in the business. I love how down to earth and relatable she is. I definitely think she is my spirit animal and that we would be the best of friends so this one dinner would be the first of many I'm sure, so Jen call a sista up!

Bradley Cooper

I'd pick Coops because, well DUH! He is dreamy and hot, you need some eye candy on the top 5 list, don't ya agree? Just look into those baby blues and you won't need any more reasons.

Myself in 30 years
So I could ask what mistakes I made so I can avoid them, the people I should hold onto, the ones I should let go, the bad habits I shouldn't start, the good ones I should and where I was most happy & productive.


So who would you have a dinner date with if you could pick anyone in the world?
