Sparkles and Sunshine: Weekly Round Up

Weekly Round Up

Friday, September 29, 2017

Happy Friday everyone!

Today is my last day up north and honestly I'm pretty excited to come home. I had such a great time with all of my family and am so glad that I was able to be here. If you follow me on Twitter or saw my Instagram story, you saw that my vacation doesn't end today...because...I won tickets to the TONE IT UP TOUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (! times 1 million)

I swear, if I could type a million exclamation points I would. I really wanted to go this year but it just wasn't in the budget to go. So, the other day I was scrolling through my Instagram feed and stumbled upon Adeline of Vibrant and Pure's beautiful food bowl photo and saw that she was doing a giveaway for the tone it up tour! I freaked out and was like, what are the odds that I would win? I never win anything! I immediately entered anyways because why not and the next thing I knew I WON!!!

I'm still in shock that I'm going. So, this means that, I am going to fly into Florida tonight at 10pm, will be home by 10:30 and then will be leaving at 6am for the Tampa Tone It Up Tour location! The best part is that I found a great pet friendly room that will fit Chandler and Diesel! I didn't want to be away from them another day and so the three of us are headed to Tampa for a quick getaway.

Since I could talk about my excitement for hours, I think it's best that I share my weekly round up articles before it's too late! 😂

Most of us know this first blogger as one of the most colorful gal's on Insta. Sam from AwwSam
always has the most happy, fun posts that make me smile every time I see them. This week, Sam posted the cutest, and in my opinion, most Floridian way to decorate for fall. She shared a DIY for mini lawn flamingo pumpkins! These are absolutely adorable and would be super fun to do with family and friends.

I recently discovered Jill of Little Black Boots and I have to say, her Instagram feed is perfection. She posted a photo of this Alice McCall romper that was absolutely stunning. It would be perfect for date night, girl's night out, or just about anything else!

I found an inspiring article on Refinery 29 featuring Aerie's model, Iskra Lawrence. Iskra created a video that shared model tips and tricks for getting that "perfect" photo you see on Instagram. I loved how she repeatedly shared that those final photos are not reality and that every woman has flaws. It truly is crazy how just the angle and lighting can "eliminate" belly rolls even though they're still there. With social media being such a huge part of our lives, I wanted to share this as a reminder that you are beautiful and that no matter the angle, you will always be perfect!

I have always wanted to travel to Greece. Chandler told me that when he was in the navy, he visited Crete, Greece and absolutely loved it. When I saw Cara Jourdan's Santorini photos I instantly wanted to book a flight and just get away! At the bottom of the post (after you're done viewing all of the beautiful photos) Cara shares some of her favorite spots while she was there. If you have some serious wanderlust, you need to read this right now!

This week's final find was from Molly of Golly Miss Molly. She shared the cutest two piece set that is perfect for the summer heat that's still hanging around! Since it has the cutest fall colors, you'll at least kind of feel like you're dressing for fall.

I hope you all have had a wonderful week and thank you to everyone who has been following along on my trip up north. In case you haven't seen, head over to my Instagram to see some of my photos from my trip!

Blog posts will be coming soon!
