May and June Monobox

Back in April I decided to re-subscribe to the monbox. I was a little hesitant due to issues with the October and December 2016 boxes but so far I've been pleased with what I have received.
 
The May box arrived while we were packing for the big move so I never got around to taking my own pictures but here's the items from the company's instagram:

 

 
I think the model is pretty short because the robe is not nearly as long on me but I do love it - very lightweight and cozy - Shaun says it makes me feel like Teddy bear - and I do love the ruffle trim and light pink monogram. I wear my hair up everyday so hair ties are never a bad thing IMO and although the tray is small I like it because it think it's perfect for my nightstand for my rings and glasses at night. I think this might be my favorite box yet!
 
It seems like monobox has been sending out holiday themed items when there is a holiday and they send them a month in advance so the June box is all about getting ready to celebrate the 4th of July. The tank is very soft but a little shorter than I typically wear my tees so I'll only wear it with pjs. I think the tote is good for all summer because it brings in a nautical look - it's made with canvas and although not what I would call sturdy it should certainly last for the season. The little anchor pocket has adhesive on the back - I stuck mine inot my phone case because sometimes when running errands I do prefer just to bring my id and one card instead of my whole purse / wallet.
 


The May robe is something I absolutely would have purchased on my own if I hadn't received it in my box. If I saw the June tote in a store I would probably pass but I certainly don't mind receiving it and feel like the June box was a good value. Box contents are not revealed until after the signup is complete, which goes through the end of the prior month - so you have until June 30th to sign upo for the July box. Items are shipped as they are ready, not all at once. For example, my friend C has not even received tracking for hers and mine arrived this past Saturday. Sizing is available up to 2xl and the cost is $21.95 a month plus shipping - if you feel like you would enjoy the items but monograms aren't your thing you can select no monogram as your option. Since I'm a newlywed I've enjoyed stocking up on items with my new monogram. If you like cute surprise accessories I recommend this subscription.

10 Year Challenge

Earlier this week I shared an image encouraging people to think about their accomplishments over the past ten years rather than how their looks have changed and listed all the positive things that have happened in my own life. It's not that I mind sharing pics of what I looked like 10 years ago but just sharing a picture doesn't tell the whole story. I had a lot of people respond congratulating me on my accomplishments and while I appreciate that it made me realize my intention was never to brag or say oh, look how great my life has been because the past ten years have been years of struggle and success.
Here you see a girl who thinks she's the life of the party - she's 24 and has practically no responsibilities but I don't envy her or wish I could return to that lifestyle.
Meanwhile, you look at this 34 year old woman and you see she's changed the way she treats her hair, she has some lines around the eyes and roundness to her face that wasn't there befo…

Timeless Style of a Natural Stone Watch

Hello Friends! I hope 2018 wrapped up nicely for you and you're watching out for opportunities in the new year. I love gifting to others but let's be real - I also love treating myself which is why I'm so excited to be wearing a new watch into the new year! Plus- it's perfect for my New Year's resolution to be on time more in 2019. Don't worry - I have a treat for you too at the end of this post.

Last year I received a beautiful wooden watch (which I still love BTW) but there have been times when I 've  wanted something a little more elegant on my wrist. The folks at Jord must have been reading my mind because they just released the new Sier Arcadia collection featuring interchangeable leather and mesh bands and natural stone faces. Each style is truly beautiful but I was drawn to the Sodalite and Gold style because it's unique from any watch I've seen. I tend to wear a lot of blues so this unique style really compliments my wardrobe. The only oth…

Hello Kitty Tea

A few months ago I was scrolling on instagram and I saw some posts about a place called The Hello Kitty Grand Café. Now I had stopped by the Hello Kitty Café food truck when it rolled through Memphis (check out my post on that here) but this looked to be taking the experience to the next level. After digging into it I discovered that The Hello Kitty Grand Café was not far from my in-law’s home in Southern California and lucky for me we had trip already planned. The Hello Kitty Grand Café operates with several functions – the front section of the location operates just like the food truck with a menu of sweets and drinks, anyone can walk in for counter service and there are a few tables in addition to some photo spots available. In the back is The Bow Room which offers a pre-fixe tea menu during the day and turns into a cocktail lounge in the evenings. Reservations are currently taken through Yelp and open up 30 days in advance- while weekend reservations can be hard to come by its a l…

Go WILD, Y'all

I'm writing this post with a serious case of the Mondays as I'm recovering from Go Wild this past week. Go Wild is the annual conference run by the Wild for Planners group and it is so much fun! This year's conference was in Nashville and while there is was announced that 2018 will be in Austin, TX. In addition to bringing planner enthusiasts together this event also presents the opportunity to hear from great speakers, meet planner  / planner goodies suppliers and the part that people to notice the most - awesome swag.   I first found out about the group last year when some planner girls I followed posted on instagram about the conference. To an outsider it looks like oh fun, planner girls gathering and getting tons of swag - I want to go! But the reality is it's so much for than that and to be perfectly honest if you're only interested in the swag you'd be better off staying home and going on a shopping spree. Since everyone wants to know the most though wha…

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…
