Hello lovelies! Just wanted to quickly share with you about my friend’s company, Umba Box! It is a company that sends you a delightful box full of handmade goodies every month! You can subscribe for a couple months at a time, or just one month to try it out! My friend Erin is the buyer for the company, which means that she picks out each and every thing inside of the boxes. Trust me; her style is killer, so there’s no doubt that anything in the box is going to be incredible! The boxes come with anything handmade, such as soaps, note paper, jewelery & other accessories! In each box, you also get a story about the artist, to see who they really are & how they made your product!…

you cannot tell me this is happening this early. not a chance. Oh, who am i kidding right now, I have the travel bug & right now, I’m literally out of my mind wishing i could travel right now. I probably brought it on myself, since this weekend i had to write a paper for school on something I’m passionate about [and i happened to chose my love of traveling & my love for different cultures]! there are several very exciting trips in the works for 2013, but, I’m pretty sure I’m not going anywhere anytime soon. in the mean time, I am busy scouring around online for possible places i would love to go, and this one takes the cake. It’s called The Saguaro Palm Springs & all of these pictures are from their website.…

hello lovelies! The other day, I was talking to my friend about Target. She made the comment that she recently walked into Target hoping to buy a package of Ziploc bags & $140.00 later she left the store, after buying some new clothes, room decor, & a couple makeup purchases! Target is just always there for you, since it’s a one-stop shop for clothes, back-to-school, beauty supplies, groceries & toys. The only other store that really compares is KMart, but, where I live, the store is in really crumby condition & the Target is brand new, so it’s a much better shopping experience. I LOVE Target so much, and the other day, I saw they have some Aztec influenced patterns in their bags. They are too cute! But, my most…

hello lovelies! I’m here today with a fun DIY that I hope you’ll really enjoy! I recently saw something like this selling for $18 at a high-end boutique, & although I know it’s cute, I also know it’s not worth that much! So, I decided to try my hand at duplicating it, and I’m quite pleased with the results! This project cost me $1.75 total, so it felt amazing saving so much money! I really hope you like this; if you make it, let me know or send me a picture so I can see how it went for you! Much love, Olivia What you Need: Scissors Newspaper Headbands (mine were 2 for $1.75 at Forever xxi) Glue gun Instructions Tear newspaper into small strips about 1-2 inches in width. Hot…

Hello lovelies! As promised, here is your guide to back to school style! As sad as it is that most of us (or our kids) are returning to school & summer days are dwindling away, at least we can go back to school in style! Much love, Olivia A ~ This is a good “1st Day of School” option because it is the right amount of dressy/casual at the same time…although dresses are good for school, save the dresses for a couple days in, not the first day. B ~ Like I said above, wear your cute dresses to school starting about a couple days into school. This dress is a good option because it’s only $23 from Forever xxi! C ~ Colored jeans are still all the rage & a perfect outfit…
