Happy One Year Anniversary to Markel & Me! <3

I CANNOT believe it’s been an entire year since we got married in Cypress, CA.  The day was BEYOND stressful, we had a few too many drinks, and we danced our asses off. xo  That day I married my best friend and I’m so incredibly lucky!!  Here are a few (ok more than a few) of our big day! ❤




Scoops Outing

This was a few weeks back~ but my bff came into town for a visit so we planned a weekend of fun.  Here was one of our outings near my apartment. ❤

Potpourri Bib Necklace From Bauble Bar

HOLY MOLY…I have had my eye on the JCREW necklace that looks just like this for at least a YEAR!  Only…the necklace at JCrew is about $150!!  (click here).  YIKES RIGHT??

Well I got this baby below for a LOW LOW LOW $22 at Bauble Bar!! =)  I had a coupon code and an introductory store credit of $10 (for all who register!) so it brought the price down on this $36 necklace.  I’m seriously SOO excited for it to come in the mail.

YES I should be saving for the wedding, and YES shopping right now is a bad idea…but who could turn this deal down??  NO ONE!  LOL

Can’t wait to wear this baby all spring/summer/fall…hell even winter! xo

Thank YOU Bauble Bar!
