Pink Streamers & Huge Balloons

Feb 29, 2016

Last weekend, I threw a Galentine's Day Party for all my GalPal girls ;) and to just hang out. When I start to dream about my idea for the perfect setting there is no stopping me! The best place to look for party ideas is Pinterest. (Click here for my Pinterest! Go check it out!) They have amazing ideas and super cute DIY decorations for that special event. I decided to go to Micheals and my local Dollar store and pick up some decor items there. The best part about shopping on the day I went out was because it was the day after Valentines Day so everything was on Sale or clearance! (That is one little tip I recommend if your party is not on the day of the real holiday!). My favorite decoration would have been the "XOXO" balloons I found at Target. They are super cute and were great photo booth props, too. Sadly though one of them had a hole so it was losing air. But over all, the whole set and design of the party was a hit. All my friends raved about the food when we all came bach to school the following Monday. I most likely will be doing my last post on the Galentines Day blog post series this weekend. I will be showing all of you what it all looked liked in the end!

Old (Funny) Photographs

Feb 26, 2016

I was looking back at my camera's pictures and came across these funny pictures. In most of the pictures I was 11-12 years old so it was not that long ago. I remember exactly when it was and where they were taken. Probably my favorite picture was the picture with my brother looking like he was dead. My family and I went to Panama City Beach for my dance competition in 2013 and we went mini-golfing and that large creature thing was there. Also, my hair was SO long back then but I am not growing it out this summer so it might look the same at the end of the year! ;)
I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my somewhat childhood. If you want to see a part 2 then give this a little comment  down below. 

Aéropostale Haul

Feb 23, 2016

Hey everybody. Today I have created a post about my recent shopping adventure at my local outlet mall.The top links above are the 2 shirts I found on the online website. My favorite out of the whole collection would be the crop Mock Knit tank. I love the turtleneck collar and the pattern/ style of the shirt. As you might tell there is a specific color theme across all of the new clothing but don't worry I do have more colorful items hiding away. ;) If you enjoy fashion blog posts then don't forget to comment below suggestions of ideas for posts! *lots of kisses*



Galentine Day: Planning

Feb 17, 2016

Hello everybody, today I have decided to share one of the fun activities I like to do which is throwing parties. What person doesn't like parties especially ones that have fun games and awesome food too! My first ever party that I throw was last year, 2015. I decided to adventure out of my zone and become a party planner/hostess! I was so pleased that all my friends enjoyed hanging out together and playing fun games which included trick-or-treating and bobbing for apples. The party was such a hit we have already picked out Halloween costumes this year! Here is a link to my Halloween Party!

When it comes to me planning out my party I like to write it down with pen and paper and create specific points I want to make sure I get.
I first got my inspiration from a Seventeen magazine as shown above. They had really cute DIY projects and yummy looking food to make so I knew that I wanted to throw a party!

Here my general topics:

1. Invites:
The first topic I complete is invites. I write down all the people I want to come to my party and create a checklist. Bullets points are helpful in this category. ;)

2. Theme
I like to jot down ideas of party themes I want to do. Obviously, this party's theme was Galentines Day. I want to do it all outside in my backyard so, I decided to do a Galentines Outside Picnic. I am literally obsessed about picnics and having a fun time outside with friends, so I knew I wanted to do that.

3. Invite Cards/ other Important Ideas:
You can't have a party without a date, time, and place. Come up with a date that seems fit for your party and a time period that you think most people can come. For me, I decided to make my party on February 20 between 1-5pm. For the location, I have picked my house.
The next bit is the invite cards. I like to handmake mine with Picmonkey. It is a free online editing website that lets you create awesome pictures. They even have a section dedicated to Valentines Day!

4. Food (My favorite!)
I like to break this part down into smaller sections,
-Main Dish
I find most of my inspiration from Pinterest. Click here is look at my Galentines Day board. Most of the time I find great ideas for different food ideas, DIY projects to complete and outfits for the special occasion.

5. Games and Music
Piece together music that is related to your party. Don't be afraid to ask your friends for suggestions of songs they like. Find a way to have all of them together so you can play all the songs in one place.
For the games, do some challenges. It's fun to have a little competition with your friends once in awhile. Have a prize ready when someone does win. Yo don't want anyone getting upset because you don't have something for them. A good source is again Pinterest and Youtube.

6. Decor
Finally, the last section is Decor. I love to create DIY projects on my own and add my own little flare to it! Again, Pinterest and youtube come into play. My top searches on both social media would be

  • Valentines Day 
  • Valentine's Day DIY 
  • Galentines Day 
  • V-day DIY 
  • Valentines 
I find just taking 10+ minutes going through the all the pins on Pinterest you can find great ideas for a party. 

I hope you guys enjoyed today's post. I will be doing a haul of the stuff I got really soon, so stay tuned for that.

Throw Back: Halloween Party 2015

Feb 16, 2016

Hey guys! Here are some photos of my Halloween party from last year. I had so much fun setting up and planning all the little details. My friends and I have already come up with a group costume for this year and Halloween is in 257 days! Crazy! I think my favorite part about having this party was trick-or-treating with a really awesome outfit. But, also bobbing for apples afterward. It was so funny and we ended up just getting really wet and laughing our heads off. (Good times :p) I can't wait for this year's party and fun new memories! 

Thanks so much for reading. I hope you enjoyed a fun throwback!
