I CAN NOT CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT! I just bought my ticket for my 3rd annual (The Blog Societies 4th annual) conference and have secured my room with some of my blogging besties (Peaches in a Pod)...and I'm already outfit planning. Is that weird considering I'm 38+ weeks pregers and this event is 4 months away? NAH! Each year the ladies at TBS up the anti and so far the schedule looks so amazing! The current sponsors/hosts thus far are Vera Bradley, Kendra Scott, Lilly Pulitzer, Swoozie's, Mud Pie, RewardStyle, etc... If you are a blogger and you haven't checked out TBS, follow this link HERE and apply (be sure to tell them I sent you)! And if you're not a blogger, check out The Blog Societies website and follow them on all social media outlets to get some of the best posts from food, fashion, and lifestyle bloggers.
So my co-worker walked into work the other day with the most gorgeous plum colored gloss on her lips...or at least I thought it was gloss. Imagine my surprise, and delight, when I learned it was actually a stick from Sonia Kashuk at Target. It's called the shine luxe lip (which is so appropriate because it does have the slight "luxe" and sheen of a gloss) and the color you have to get is SHEER PLUM! I'm legit obsessed! It's just the prettiest color for giving your lip that perfect plum, puckered-up pout!
So yes...I am that crazy lady who will be 39+ weeks pregnant (hopefully) at a concert. Pearl Jam is coming to Jacksonville on Wednesday for the first time EVER, and the hubby and I were able to get tickets before they even went on sale. My love for Pearl Jam is...odd I guess...but none the less passionate. Here's the brief history... My brother, who is 5 years older than me (as well as one of my best friends and mentors), became a huge Pearl Jam fan after the release of their very first album in 1991 when I was 8 and he was 13. He played their CD on repeat and it blasted through the wall to my room daily. At 8 years old I thought it was terrible, but as the years passed and my bro continued to buy every CD and bootleg, Pearl Jam's music became a natural part of my life; I had become a fan too. When I hear them, I am always reminded of my brother...which fills me with love and some really great memories. He has seen them in concert so many times (including w/ Chris Cornell) and after 25 years, is still a loyal fan. I have never seen them and being in the same room as Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, and Stone Gossard is going to be a major hi-light of my "social" life. All I want is for this baby to stay in through Wednesday night then it can come whenever it wants. Please Jesus!
Have you seen Anthropologie's "top" game lately!? Holy awesome! One of the things I can't wait for the most is getting back into normal clothes, however even I know the old adage; 9+ months to put it on...9+ months to take it off. With that being said I am always on the hunt for clothes that are flattering, feminine and loose. I don't know how long it will take for my belly to go back down or to fit into my non-maternity pants, so anytime I can find a shirt that makes me feel cute all the while hiding some "flub" I am all about it! Anthro has the most amazing selection right now of tunics, drapey tees and peplum tops. I'll take one of each please!
Dolce Vita for Target! DV FOR TARGET, y'all! Hello lovies...Target hasn't had a good shoe/accessory collab like this is forever! I'm so excited! Look at all these amazing options...I've already bought the first black wedge and am trying to decide what's next.
