Happy Friday Friends!! Still in crazy busy mode! As we speak, sitting in day two of the first college orientation and probably up to my ears in questions, lol.

Sweet Emelia from Dream Big and Buy The Shoes has gathered some of her Bloggy friends for a $50 SEPHORA Gift Card and a Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Palette GIVEAWAY!! 

1. Party Snaps
When you talk about dreaming big, don't you remember just graduating high school at 18 and planning to reach as high as you can for the stars? 
We celebrated these guys last weekend and had a ball.
One in AC on a 95 degree day and a cool down for one the next day outside with 78 degree temps. Neither were at our house which took at least one load off my mind. And let me tell ya, I love to cook but catering took a load off my mind. Thank you Chic Eats!




Basically like 13 pictures out of 226.

2. Fringe and Tassel Love
Wednesday I showed you this Fringe and Tassel fantastic outfit with a favorite top find of the summer..maybe the year, I love it so much. Tassels and Fringe everywhere and they are terrific!!
