i feel uber smart when i play kids week jeopardy.

 denim shirt: belk / tank: forever 21 / shorts: GAP outlet / shoes: Garren, Blowfish Shoes / watch: fossil / ring: charming charlies / neon bracelets: c/o IHOD 
necklace: c/o Shine Project / headband: c/0 Come and Knock / nails: sally hansen mint sorbet, nail decal

the beginning of summer seriously took off with a bang. 
and this past week has been a little slower pace which gave the chance to really enjoy some slower paced summer days.

1. finished the 2nd book in the Mortal Instrument series
2. making friendship bracelets with the little sis
3. getting super into America's Got Talent with the family
4. discovering Sally Hansen's nail decals and obsessed with them
5. creating new designs for the shop
6. swimming in the Atalantic ocean, wishing that i could surf with how huuuuge the waves were the day that we went
7. eating too much left over cotton candy from July 4th
8. feeeling uber smart playing Kids Week Jeopardy
9. outlet shopping with mom
10. already planning outfits to see the fiance next week (eeeekkk!!)

and some of you have asked for a DIY post on the friendship bracelets we've been making. i'm honestly the worst person at writing up DIY posts. no joke. i'm bad at explaining the how to steps of it and taking the correct photos for them. but folks, this HERE is the tutorial i've been following and memorized. it'll really take you back to middle school.

btw have you heard of...

and one more thing, have you heard of Ashley of the Shine Project? this lovely lady has been popping up all over blog world with her incredible projects, all to contribute to the college education of inner city high-schoolers. this gal's heart is HUGE and is such an inspiration. this necklace is such a stellar reminder of what a small step can do to turn into a big difference! 

and how's that for a random post, folks?!
hope you all have a fantastic weekend.

much love.
[happy friday, friend.]
