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.

Spring Forward with a Wooden Watch

Hello Friends! Have you been making it to work on time this week or did your body have a hard time with the adjustment? Personally I am not a morning person so I have an easier time with fall daylight savings than I do spring. Here in Memphis the trees are starting to bloom and spring is in the air, which means its time to reflect the season in my wardrobe. I've swapped out my purse from black to blush, added a few new floral tops and got a new watch to help keep me on time as I adjust to the time change. For my watch, I selected the Frankie Purpleheart & Plum watch from Jord. Not only are oversized watches so in right now but I love the use of the Purpleheart wood and plum face to give a twist on a classic style watch. As y'all know love all shades of pink and I think the coloring of this watch goes with it so beautifully and the blush tones of my outfit really make the distinctness of the Purpleheart wood stand out.
I've been very intrigued by the wooden watch tre…

Pretty in Pink Easter Dress

Hello and Happy First Day of Spring!!! I'm so lucky to live in an area where in general the weather feels like what you would expect for each season - it's hot in summer, cold and winter and while some years we don't get the perfect day on the first day of spring it is starting to warn up and some flowers have begun to bloom. As much as I'm a planner I have a terrible time shopping for clothes in advance - when it's cold I want to wear sweaters and when it's warm I want cotton dresses gosh darn it so typically Easter creeps up on me and the week of I find myself scrambling to find something to wear. Yes of course I could just pull something I love from my closet but Easter represents new life and new beginnings and I always like to treat myself to a new dress.   So, when you've having all the Easter feels what's a girl to do except go take some pictures - and even better if you're lucky enough to live near a Jeff Koons Smooth Egg with Bow sculpture…

Sweater Weather

Although I could do without the snow and single digit temps I do love winter because a lot of my favorite clothes are winter clothes. There's something about a cozy sweater that makes me feel good so of course I'm loving the current trend of statement sleeve sweaters.

With trends I really have to be careful to control myself, especially with these because it's a style I REALLY like. Without the little voice in my head reminding me that I do not need a closet of practically identical pieces I would own several of the tiered sleeve sweaters, thank goodness for that voice! For the tiered sleeve look I went with black because it's versatile and since this is such a trendy piece and there's no guarantee this will be in style come next winter I wanted something I would get a lot of wear out of this season. Likewise when buying a bell sleeve cardigan I wanted something I could wear throughout winter and possibly into spring - this sweater with jeans and a comfy tee unde…

Hostess with the Mostess

One of my favorite things is to entertain. Since moving last summer we have hosted some kind of event at least once a month and while we keep talking about slowing down it doesn't look like we'll stop anytime soon. Party hosting can be a lot of fun but it can also be exhausting, especially if you aren't prepared, so I've pulled together my "best practices" so you can learn from my mistakes and make your next gathering a little less stressful. The first step of course is to determine what kind of gathering you'll be hosting - we've hosted everything from Thanksgiving dinner with all the fancy crystal and china to a casual come on over for burgers on the grill but I think my favorite event that we've hosted so far has been a baby shower for our sweet friends.

Once you know what kind of event you're hosting think about the guest list and how you'll invite everyone - for just a gathering of our friends we use facebook but if you want to be …

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…
