Happy Friday! Today is my last day at work for at least a week. Woohoo! I am counting down the days until we leave and head to North Myrtle Beach on Sunday. I love going to the beach and having some relaxation time but that is not the only reason that I am excited about this trip. This will be the FIRST time that we have gotten to stay at the condo we purchased a month ago. We did a quick 10-minute walk through to look it over but we haven’t gotten to stay there before. That has me really excited! The other reason that I am excited is that Joseph and Kayla and the kids are going with us. I wish Ashleigh could go but she lives in Alaska and that is just a tad too long of a trip. I also asked my other son in Tennessee if he and his family could come down and let’s all have a fun time. Bu, it is Vacation Bible School week and he and my DIL both teach classes. So, I guess it will just be Joe and me along with Joseph’s family. Emersyn is starting to make plans and wanted to see what the pools looked like. Lol! She did a little dance when she got in my car and found some beach toys that I had bought. It is amazing how a sand bucket and little shovel can make you so happy when you are four. I doubt if that will thrill her when she turns 16. Lol! This will be little Beckham’s first trip to the Atlantic Ocean. I am already starting to lay out all of my R+F sunscreens, the last thing I want is anyone to get sunburned. It will be interesting with all of us being under the same roof. Joe and I are not used to having a lot of noise or kids running around so there might be a small adjustment phase. Lol!
You know that I believe that looking good is not dependent upon how much you spend or where you purchase your clothes. On my way home from Tennessee the other day I stopped at Target and went in to buy a few things. While I was there I decided to check out the clothes and I came out with this dusty lilac top by Knox Rose. I am not sure if it was the color, which I adore, the embroidered panel down the front, or the cute tassels on the sleeve that caught my eye first. It didn’t really matter which was first because they were all important. This is an off the shoulder style but I didn’t feel like wearing it that way so I didn’t. Problem solved. Lol!!!
I am seriously in love with these Dawna earrings. These are 4.5″ long and I love how they just dust the top of my shoulder. Yes, I know that they are large and showy. SO WHAT? You can rock these earrings and not only that, you will have people want to know where they are from. They are pale pink with navy accents and I like to wear these with jeans. When I wear statement earrings you will notice that my necklace is either dainty or very long. I don’t want two statement pieces close to each other. Because of the panel on the top, I didn’t feel the need for a necklace at all. Notice the cuff bracelet? It is the Kensie multi-colored leather magnetic bracelet. It mimics the layered look without the hassle. This is adjustable from 8″ to 8.5″ and the magnetic closure makes it very easy to put on and take off. If you are interested in any items from Plunder just go to plunderdesign.com/taniastephens.Did you guys all buy this clutch when I posted it the other day? This was a purchase that I made when I was in Nashville at a store called Francesca’s. The clutch was available online but now it is sold out! I bet it is because I posted about it. Lol!!! Never fear, I found some more cute summer bags all under $50.00.
These jeans! 😍 Here is a fun way to wear the raw hem jeans if you don’t like the hem hanging down. Also, if you think that ankle pants look like they are just not long enough and that you have outgrown your jeans, then turn up the hem and all at once they are super cute and look perfect! This pair is by Sneak Peek and they are several years old but here are some that would work just as well.
Today is June the 1st and I wanted to start the month with a giveaway! I am loving the book, Girl, Go Wash Your Face. Every chapter starts with a “lie” that she used to tell herself and how she has learned to overcome the lie. Such as “I am shy and timid.” That was a lie that I always said but the truth is that I was just afraid of rejection so I kept quiet. I am learning to overcome the fear and to let my voice be heard. What is a lie that you told, or tell, yourself? I will be giving away this book to someone so be sure to comment. Also, if you know someone who could use some encouragement, send them here and maybe they will see that what they have been telling themselves is simply a lie.
