How To Style A Farmhouse Tray

TRAY LOVE. It's real ya'll. I know because I have a tray that I'm in love with. 

I have a tray obsession. Almost as bad as my pillow and throw blanket obsession but we're not quite there just yet, but will be soon I'm sure. 

Today, my FAVORITE tray is BACK IN STOCK at one of my most favorite stores, ever. You can find it here, I love this tray so much in fact, that I decided to create a blog post about it. Crazy? Maybe. But we all know I'm not normal so just hang out with me for a minute, okay? 

Trays are fun, and they can be styled in so many ways and used in so many spaces. I have a tray in my bedroom, where I keep all my perfumes, lotions etc. I have one in the bathroom, where I keep extra soaps, hand towels and some pretty smelling candles. I have one in my living room, and one in my kitchen. Obviously.
The one in my kitchen gets changed up the most. I change it with the seasons and have so much fun doing so. 

You don't have to spend a ton of money to switch it up either. 

Just get yourself some basics. I stick with my Rae Dunn Cream Cup and a small boxwood plant, my favorite blue jar and often times, the cow sticks around too. I'll change it up for the new seasons just by switching the tea towel, or a few small things like adding lemons for Spring/Summer, Hearts for Valentine's Day or Pumpkins for fall. 

Just check out some of the ways I've used this tray in the past.






Tray Styling is real easy if you don't over think it and just stick to the basics. Promise! 
So if you want to add some instant farmhouse style to your space, this is the tray to get! I promise you'll love it as much as I love mine! And probably find yourself having a ton of fun decorating it too!

Do ya'll have a favorite tray you love to decorate? Or do you have this one already? Let me know your thoughts on tray styling below! 

Be sure to check out The Glam Farmhouse Collection at Shady Oaks Farm! It's all my favorite things in one spot! Also, I'd love to have you follow along on Google+ and Instagram if you don't already!
Have a great day!

The BEST Farmhouse Glam lighting for under $250!

Let's talk lighting today! I hope ya'll are feeling refreshed and ready to start a new week! I know that I'm personally still on Spring Break time and taking things a little slow, but sitting down and writing lists to prepare to tackle some of these projects that I've put on hold while we work on the flip house which goes up for sale THIS WEEK! I'm so excited to share that with you guys but today, I want to talk lighting, because well. I get asked about mine, alot. 

I really believe that lighting is a great way to update your space and add charcter on a budget. There are truly so many options out there and you could have so much fun planning a space around a single light fixture. When we do our flip houses, one of the things we always do is update the lighting. I think it just makes a huge impact for a minimum amount of money and it's something I always suggest when people come to me and ask me how to update a space! 

Even better, some of my favorite lighting is under $250!

Let's chat first about this adorable little mini crystal chandy that I bought for [Savannas big girl room] makeover. I'm buying another one shortly for our powder room and it would also be adorable in a laundry room or closet space! I love the little element of glam it adds to any space! This is the Mini Crystal Chandelier that I currently have in Savannas room and I'm overall really pleased with it! Plus, you can't beat the price!
Moving back downstairs to the dining room, the Chandy I get asked about the most! You would never know it cost less then $200! This Rustic Crystal Chandelier is the perfect mix of rustic glam and just totally transformed our dining room space. I've had it for a year and never get tired of it! 
Almost as much as I get asked about the light in the dining room, I get asked about this 3 pendant light too. Would you believe me if I told you it was only $100!? The best $100 I've ever spent, by FAR! This pendant light is so great in farmhouse inspired spaces. It just screams VINTAGE! 
I just recently purchased this Pendant Crystal Light for a makeover I'm working on and it IS GORGEOUS! How beautiful would it be in a rustic farmhouse style bathroom? Or even a modern one? I would also love it in a powder room or laundry space! I'm a sucker for glam and farmhouse things (obviously!) it's probably not much of a secret how much I just LOVE this light!
SWOON!

One of my favorite things about lighting is that you can do something totally unexpected in a space and it just works! This Wooden Chandelier is one of my absolute favorites! It's so different and fresh! I would love to see this light in a foyer or a bedroom for an added element of surprise or a fun decorating touch! 

So there ya have it babes and beauties! My favorite Farmhouse Style lighting! I hope you all found some inspiration today and take the time to check out the sources for these lights! If nothing else, just sit and imagine the gorgeous spaces you could create with all of these beautiful lights.

Friday Favorites

Easter. I can't believe it's here already! I remember back in December it was 70 degrees on Christmas and I was like, "This doesn't feel like Christmas, it feels like Easter." AND NOW. Now Easter is really here and it's sort of shocking that it came so fast! 

I'm lovin' all sorts of fun things this week, like the fact that after my little eye incident I shared with you guys on Instagram I can actually SEE. My vision is still a little blurry but, I'm hoping everything heals quickly and gets back to normal soon. 

Anywho, let's talk favs this week. I'm currently crushing so hard on this Windmill Clock and I'm trying to figure out where I could put one. I don't think I'll be able to hold off much longer from buying one. 
Quick! Someone talk me out of buying it! 
Also, did you see this AH-MAY-ZING pillow I shared on IG a little earlier this week? It's so French Country and Shabby Chic. You can get your own right here at Jolie Marche's Etsy Shop! If horses aren't your thing, she has so many other great pillows in her shop to satisfy any style and taste. 

Stepping away from Home Decor, I wanted to talk to some of ya'll about a 30 day detox I'm doing. Yes. You can still eat food. This is basically just a tea you drink a few times a day to clean and rid your body of toxins and those sorts of nasty things. I've been feeling so much better, less bloated and have more energy then ever before! 
You can use code GLAMFARM for 10% off any tea that you purchase! If you're looking to jump start a weight loss program or just feel better (I'm really unhealthy) then this tea is a great place to start! You can check it out here!

Are you familiar with Acai Bowls? They serve them at places like Jamba Juice and they are nothing short of amazing. Sadly, I live an hour from my nearest Jamba so I was SO super excited that I could recreate my own with some ACAI powder or frozen packs. I found this powder on Amazon if you wanted to try making your own! They are so yummy and great for you at the same time! PS. Your kids will probably love them too! ;)
I'll be sharing the recipe for mine later next week because I did get some requests!

I guess I'm the only one in the world that hasn't pre-made Easter baskets? I have all the stuff just thrown in my closet right now and actually have to go out for some last minute stuff today. My bad. I'm sort of freaking out because I have no idea how I'm going to decorate once Easter is over. So for now, let's just enjoy the Easter Decor, umkay?
And because I get asked so much, the buffet is from Wayfair and can be found here
It was painted and distressed by yours truly! 
By far my most favorite and versatile piece of furniture I have currently.

So that's all I have for ya this week beauties! I hope you have a lovely Easter, and I'm glad you popped in to hang out for a few minutes today! Get out and enjoy the weekend!
XOXO

Flicker Box Review March 2016

Do you love candles? Then you might want to stick around for today's post and learn some more about this awesome Subscription Box Service. I've been getting this candle box for almost 6 months now.  If you aren't familiar with Flicker Box, well, let me introduce you. It's a great service where different hand selected candles are put together for you in a lovely themed box each and every single month. It's seriously like Christmas when my box arrives every week!

You can check out some previous boxes and reviews here

This month, the theme was French Farmhouse. And I mean, I was so super excited because, well.. Farmhouse. Duh. 

As always, the box is simple, sweet and full of goodies. 

There is a card included inside with all the information from that months candle selections, that stick with the theme of the box that month. I love this because I get to read more about the candles I'm getting.

This month, included a few different selections. I love this pretty glass jar! It's moved around the house a couple of times already. It smells so fresh and clean!
But my favorite by far is this yummy lemon lavender candle! I only wish it was bigger!
Overall, I was a little underwhelmed with this months box, but I had high expectations because of the theme, I guess. That doesn't mean I don't love the candles I got though, because they are really awesome! I really suggest you give Flicker Box a try, especially if you are a candle lover like me! 

You can sign up for your own Flicker Box today! 
Let me know what you think of this months Flicker Box below!

Farmhouse Kitchen Essentials

I think there are some elements to a space that SCREAMS Farmhouse Kitchen. Breezy white cabinets, rustic knobs, a farmhouse sink. But I don't really have any of those things. Well, Except white cabinets. I'm working on some of the other aspects but for right now, I'm just adding style to my kitchen with products. 

It's a little bit easier to obtain some farmhouse style then you think. With just a few key products, you can be on your way to having a Farmhouse kitchen of you're very own! Pretty exciting right? I know I'm excited! 


The first thing I want to talk about is Clear Glass Gallon Containers. I think these are pretty much a staple in Farmhouse Style right now. I have good news! You can snag these at Wal-Mart for $8 a piece or on Amazon really cheap if you don't feel like venturing out. 

I get asked about the Bread Box a whole lot. 


It's ridiculous how much I could love ONE thing, I know it. But I do. I was so so happy to finally get my hands on one and you can to by clicking that little link above;) 

Of course the Farmhouse Tray is another favorite!
 It adds so much more to a space then I ever really thought a tray could. It has vintage patina and screams Farmhouse Style. I'm so obsessed with decorating this tray for the seasons! It's such a fun element and a simple way to add some Farmhouse Style to a space. Don't you agree? 

And yes, the Rustic Scale. The holy grail if you ask me. 
I just love vintage scales. Scales of all kinds! But this one, this one takes the cake currently. I love decorating it with faux florals or you can just be simple and use candles, or leave it as is! No matter how you style it, it's always fabulous. ALWAYS. It's currently working great in the dining room as a table display! What do ya'll think? 

Boxwood wreaths are like Farmhouse Style GOLD
but again, I totally think they work in so many different spaces in so many different displays.

I'm so in love with them and have at least one in every room. It's probably a problem but whatever. You can't take me away from my wreaths, OKAY?!! Seriously though, they are so great hanging on old windows, on the backs of chairs, hanging on cabinets, you can even be extra crazy and hang them on your front door. I know, who knew, right?! GASP! 

Thankfully there are so many different ways you can add Farmhouse Style to your spaces without doing any major refurbishments. This is also great for Renters out there who can't paint cabinets or add new hardware, you CAN add some Farmhouse Elements without doing any of those things! I hope you are inspired to venture out and get some Farmhouse Goodies for yourself and that (soon to be!) pretty little kitchen of yours!

Friday Favorites

It's Friday! Which means time for another edition of Friday Favorites. I know I say this EVERY SINGLE FRIDAY but I literally feel like I was just writing this post. On Fridays, I typically like to share a mix of my favorite things and happenings over the past week. It's fun because I always like to highlight small shops and some things I'm loving as well! 
PS. I'm recovering from the FLU right now, so forgive me if this post is a little late. :

I was really happy with my Target Dollar Spot finds for Easter. I mean. HOW CUTE is this little bunny I picked up for $3? I've also seen some cute bunnies at the Dollar Store that could easily be chalk painted and used in Farmhouse Easter Vignettes!

I was really pumped about the scale I picked up at my favorite shop ShopShadyOaksFarm.com
It's a bummer they are out of stock right now, but get yourself on the mailing list so they can let you know as soon as they get more in! I've heard these babes are used in a ton of Fixer Upper episodes. So, I guess that's why they're popular;-P

I also got this beauty from there! I'm a sucker for a simple boxwood, but I needed some pretty florals in my life and this wreath is HEART. EYES!! It just screams spring to me and I'm in love. 
Straying away from Home Decor, I was so excited to try a Drugstore Foundation that I actually LOVE. It's Maybeline Infalliable  and I'm basically obsessed. I've tried SO many foundations and this one is one of my favorites, right up there with my [Hourglass Foundation] Which costs a significant amount more, I'm a closet makeup junkie and always love playing around with my makeup and discovering new products. 

And let's be honest, it just wouldn't be a Friday Favorites post without some pretty flowers to brighten up your day! I'll be honest. Lillies aren't the first flowers I'm drawn too. But I picked some up this week for something different, and I have to admit they are so super pretty, and reminding me that Summer will be here before we know it. (I know, I'm getting ahead of myself with Summer, but I SERIOUSLY CAN'T WAIT. 

Even though I'm feeling crappy, I'm hoping for a productive weekend. I have so many exciting things to share with you all about upcoming products and partnerships! I'm really stepping out of my comfort zone or alot of things and hoping you guys stick by my side on the journey! I just adore all of you! 

What are you beauties planning for the weekend?! I hope it's full of doing something you love! XOXO

How To Take Care Of A Fiddle Leaf Tree

Hey guys!!

I searched high and low for a few months before I finally found a fiddle leaf tree. Yes, they are all over Pinterest and pretty much the IT thing in plant world as far as interior design goes. I'm sure it will be something else different in a few months. 

I'm normally not a plant person, like..at all. Not even a little bit. But there was something I really liked about this little plant. I think you need fresh greenery in a space. Or, maybe it doesn't even have to be real. Just greenery of any kind will do. But fake ones are super expensive and I wanted a real one. Sort of like a mini challenge for me, to actually keep something alive. I mean, thankfully the kids are still here but..not really because of anything I've done on my part! ha!

Anyway, my Dad is like Mr. Plant King. Totally just made that up, but it's so true. He can literally bring anything back to life, so obviously I consulted him about my new addition. He answered all my questions and gave me all sorts of tips on keeping this thing alive. I got this beauty in September and although we've had to say goodbye to some brown leaves, it's been doing okay. Especially considering it's winter. 

That's one of the things you should know about a fiddle. It's a tropical plant. So of course it enjoys heat and humidity. But doesn't really do well in direct sun. Ironic, right? 

So I'm going to give you a few easy and simple tips on ways to keep your fiddle tree alive. I am by no means an expert, but these are just some things I've been doing and guess what! It's still here! 

1. It's a tropical plant. 

Yes, I know I just mentioned that, but I mean it. It loves humidity and heat. So make sure it's in a spot that stays warm pretty much all the time. 

2. Fiddle's are sort of OCD.

I mean, they like things to be a certain way, at a certain time. I water ours every Wednesday and Sunday mornings like clock work. Always 1 cup. Yes. One Cup of water every Wednesday and Sunday. If it feels extra dry, I'll go ahead an do a 1/2 cup, but I never saturate it. The top inch of soil sound always feel wet to the touch. Also, they love consistency, so make sure you don't skip a day, if I forget to water it on Sunday, I notice it looks a little sad Monday morning. 
In this picture, things are looking a little sad and droopy, that's because I moved it. :( 

Which brings me to my next subject..

3. DON'T MOVE THEM.

I'm serious. Just don't do it! I had mine in one spot for a month and decided to move it, it almost didn't adjust and we almost couldn't save it. Droopy leaves, Brown Leaves. Sad leaves. Thankfully my dad gave it some plant food and it survived and made it through the struggle. I haven't moved it since.

If you notice the leaves a droopy, it needs water. Just a half cup should do. 

4. Morning Sun.

MORNING SUN. ONLY MORNING SUN PEOPLE. And the light should be indirect sunlight (meaning from a window) This also means that you might not be able to put it in the spot you originally pictured, but if you want it to stay alive and actually grow then I suggest keeping it in a spot that consistently gets morning sun and at least 4 solid hours.

5. Dusty Leaves

I didn't even realize that a real plant would get dusty.. but it's amazing how much dust this thing actually attracts! Thankfully the fix is simple. I just use a clean dry rag or paper towel and lightly mist the leaves with water and then wipe them down gently. The leaves are shiny and clean and that means I have a happy little tree!

QUICK TIP: If the leaves are looking a little droopy and sad, just use 1/4 tablespoon of Dawn Dish Liquid mixed with one cup of water to perk it up! The Dish Soap helps the plant soak up the water, this is really great if you forget to water it for a few days and it's feeling especially dry! Also, make sure the top inch of soil is wet! It shouldn't feel saturated but you should always be able to feel it and tell if it's spongy like, or dry.

Let's see how long I can keep this beauty alive! Wish me LUCK!;)

Do you have a fiddle leaf tree? Do you want one? Do you have any tips or suggestions on caring for them? I'd love to hear them! Just leave me a comment below or lets chat on Instagram! I always love and look forward to hearing from you guys!

Happy St. Paddy's Day!

I'I had no intention of decorating for St. Patrick's Day this year, seriously. NONE. With the two Holidays, St Partick's Day and Easter being so close I figured I would just skip out on one this year. 

But then Target happened.

Damn you, TARGET and you're adorable cheap Dollar Spot goodies inspiring me to be creative and decorate for EVERY SINGLE THING. I'm only pretending to be mad though, because, let's face it. We all love the dollar spot. 


Also, I love This Buffet which I've talked about no less then a thousand (and one) times. This buffet is where all the Holiday fun happens. 

If you've been around for awhile you know just what I'm talking about.

Nick Jr. recently learned from some of our family that he has Irish roots, so now he thinks that I HAVE to decorate for St. Patrick's Day. WHATEVER. 

I dragged the twine wreath in from outside, I think I got it at Wal-Mart for like, $4? Everything else, I shopped the house for. Everything besides the Lucky Sign, The Galvanized Tub(which will double as an Easter Bucket for the hubs!)The shamrock banner and the shamrock pillow. So total, the space cost me about $20 to put together. I ain't mad. 
I'm not hating this space though, but I'm really anxious to break out the Easter stuff and might do so a little earlier so I can, you know..enjoy it? Are you guys leaving up your Easter stuff for a bit?

                      
Now the only thing I have to do is make some lucky charm treats and drink a green cocktail and I'll be good. I might even make a themed meal because, why not, right?

So the St. Pats stuff stays up for two weeks, and then it's time for Easter. I'm ready! 

So I gotta know, do you or did you decorate for St. Patrick's Day this year? If so, I want to see! Just tag me in a picture on Insta or leave me a comment below!
Enjoy the rest of your week, beautiful! XO

How We Saved $50k To Buy A House

This story is personal and close to my heart. I'm sure some have judged and some with continue to do so, but I'm writing it to show people going through a rough patch that sometimes it takes some hard work and commitment to your goals. You can climb out of any situation and come out on top! I promise you! 

I've started this post a thousand times, and have never finished. It's a question we get asked literally ALL THE TIME. I just never know where to start, or end..or how much information is too much. Or if it's even information to anyone. 

The Truth is, I can't tell YOU how to save money to buy a house. Everyone has different situations, and are dealing with different things and issues. I can only share with you guys OUR story,and how things worked out for us. 
I guess I'll just start at the beginning. 

We were teen parents. When you are 16, and living with your parents, you sort of start to think you won't be able to ever achieve certain things. Home ownership is one of them. We literally scraped change together at times to buy diapers for our son. It was hard, I was scared, and there were certain thoughts that just never crossed my mind. Like owning our own home.

Cut to Nick being 19. He's working a ridiculous amount of hours for a company owned by a really close family friend. One day, in casual conversation, he mentions to me he wants to start renting houses. 

"Huh?"

Was my Response. I mean, we could hardly keep food on the table at the time. I was struggling through classes at Community College, He was making decent money at his job, and I was waiting tables. Still very young, and having a whole lot to learn about love and life in general.. 

That year, we received $8,000 back in taxes. 

We live close to Baltimore City, where they are basically giving houses away. That year, at 17 and 19 years old, we bought our first rental property. It required lots of work.. like, a lot. Nick would work 10 hours a day at his job and then work on the flip house until 2am, often times falling asleep there just to wake up and go to his day job. 

Cut to a year later, Nick had quit his old job and had started his own contracting business. We were tired of renting it out and wanted to sell. We made $10,000 profit on our first flip. Continuing with the trend of buying and flipping, we were able to buy and sell six more houses. 

Each time moving to better areas and buying higher quality houses. 

6 years later we bought a 6 unit apartment building that needed lots of work, after renting for a year, we bought and sold that house for a $50,000 profit. 

Do you know what we did with that $50,000? We bought our first house, at 23 and 25 we owned a house, IN COLD HARD CASH. NO MORTGAGES. 

Over the next year, we would work and continue to rent out our only other rental property. Eventually taking a deal with a hard money lender to buy our most recent flip house.

All while still living with my mom for a small amount of rent and working on our current house when we were able. 

Over the next year we would put about $80,000 in the house. When we bought our current house we live in, it needed SO much work. We pretty much couldn't live in it while doing the renovations, We continued to live with my Mom for another year, while working on our fixer upper and getting things live-able. Mostly just working on the evenings and weekends, since Nick was still running his business and, we still had a few rental properties to take care of.

Cut to now, 11 years later. We are completely debt free. We own both of our new vehicles in cash, and have no mortgage on our house. We just bought our first flip house, not located in the city or urban area and are looking to make a $80,000-$120,000 profit. 

Some things to note about our story:

My Mom helped us a lot, like, a whole lot. We lived with her rent free for 6 years which enabled us to bank money to continue buying and flipping rental properties. 

Do you have a family member you could live with or stay with for a small amount of rent? I know it's a long shot, but this can really help you get a jump start on saving for a house.

Nick is good at everything and over the last few years has truly learned every single trade, which means, WE do all the labor and work on our flips. We don't sub it out which in turn gives us the highest profits. 

Is your significant other, or are you, a handyman or a jack of all trades? You will have to learn how to do the basics in order to really benefit from flipping houses and maximizing profits.

We have dealt with a hard money lender on numerous occasions. This is a lot different from a bank loan (which we were never able to get ironically.) but it worked well for us in the end. You will have to have something of value to put up in order to get a hard money loan, and the interest rates are very high. 

Nick and I have been dealing with the same realtor for the past 8 years, when we told him we were in the market for a house for ourselves, he found this major fixer upper that nobody wanted to touch. Here's the thing we've learned as investors these past few years, The foreclosure lists you see? No matter how "exclusive" aren't really accurate. The really GOOD deals go to investors and realtors that have relationships with their clients. This means, the really great deals on houses are typically gone by the time the lists make it to the general public.

My advice? Find a good realtor and build a relationship.

Now, do you see why it's so hard to give specific advice? Everyone is going through different situations, and dealing with different things. We were teen parents, but thankfully had my Mom helping guide us along the way. We are also really lucky, because Nick is a jack of all trades so to speak. If he doesn't know how to do something, he won't stop until he learns. Also, when buying and flipping houses, you have to understand how minimal the space is sometimes for profit, especially when you have to start sub-contracting things out that you don't know how to do. For instance, HVAC in most houses costs $15,000 ALONE. Nick and I are able to literally cut all of those costs in half because we do the work ourselves, this maximizes our profits. 

Moral of the story? Nothing is out of your reach, ever. I hate when I hear people say, "but I can't because of this.." Just STOP. Because if you want something bad enough, YOU CAN GET IT. We have obviously had a lot of help along the way, but the only reason we're anywhere is because of the hard work and dedication to making our dreams a reality! 

So there you have it guys, that's all I have for ya. I hope it's even the slightest bit insightful, if it does nothing more then help you understand why we're so grateful for everything.

Feel free to leave a comment if you have a question or comment and I'll try my best to respond and answer!

Friday Favorites

Typically I write up my Friday Fav posts on Thursday, but last night was.. well, not ideal. Nick got home late, Sav got to bed late and was awake on and off all night long. Then she woke up super early this morning and today I'm just NOT able to get my stuff together to get motivated. 

Okay, I literally feel like I'm blinking and it's Friday again. I mean. I'm not complaining. This week has been GORGEOUS as far as weather goes, and I'm so anxious for Spring to finally arrive!! Although it sort of feels like it's here already. 

I have some REALLY great things to share with you today, or well, I mean things that I think are great. ;) 

Of course, I feel like flowers are becoming a staple for these Friday Favorites posts. The spotlight is on these beauties this week. Roses are perfectly shabby chic if you ask me.
Of course I have to include my favorite (tray) in this weeks post. Because, I mean.. it's a favorite EVERY day, but it deserves a mention. I love styling this babe up with the seasons! It really is so Farmhouse Chic. Have you picked one up yet? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? You can get this beauty for 15% off at Shady Oaks Farm using code LAURIE15! Be sure to take a peek at all the goodies in my collection while you're there too. I put together my favs just for you!
Have ya'll been to check out these candles from Antique CandleWorks? I can't even handle how amazing ALL of her candles are! 
I'm so addicted and need like, 80 of these! 

This week was pretty low key as far as decorating goes, for the first time in a long time I didn't move anything. I've been focusing on getting started on Spring Cleaning, you know closet clean-outs and stuff like that. It's not fun, but there's something that feels so good about eliminating clutter! 
Don't you agree?! 

And because you'll probably find out at some point, my Birthday is tomorrow! We're planning to go to a new place to celebrate downtown. I'm not a big city girl but I guess it's okay to venture out of my element once in a blue moon;) Speaking of Birthdays, did ya'll see what I put together for the hubs turning 30 last week?
Since we went to Jamaica to celebrate his birthday we decided to keep things low key but I still wanted to do something for him. I'm a big Birthday lover (just not of mine!) haha and tend to make a big deal over them!

So that's it ya'll! My favs for the week! I'd love to hear what you guys are loving this week! I'll see you next Friday with more of my favorites! Please feel free to shoot me a message if you want to be apart of my Friday Favorites posts! 

Enjoy the weekend!
