Celebrating One Year of Living The LLife

Short but sweet today! Timehop, which is one of my favorite apps, reminded me that today is my One Year Blogiversary! From sharing fun things like recipes and deals to opening up about some really tough life events, I have enjoyed writing about my “LLife” and sharing it with my readers. Cheers to year two!

How To Create a Gorgeous DIY Gold & Aqua Beach Bridal Shower

When my best friend Caitlin asked me to be her Matron of Honor I practically exploded with excitement. As an only child I have always dreamed of having a sister and Cait is as close to being one as it gets. For the past ten years we have shared so many laughs and fabulous memories as roommates and sorority sisters and I couldn’t wait to shower her with gifts and love at her bridal shower. It was a major bonus that all of her friends (and future sister-in-law) are seriously awesome which made planning this party even more fun.

My Favorite Baby Gift to Give to a Newborn and their Parents

IMG_1918If you read my bridal shower gifts post then you know I am a huge fan of personalized gifts.

One of my favorite gifts for newborns (and their parents) also happens to be personalized. A birth announcement pillow is a unique gift that is a perfect addition to a new nursery and unlike newborn clothes won’t be something that gets tucked away in the back of a closet after a few months. Doesn’t my friend Mary’s son Noah look adorable next to his gift?

There are endless option to buy these sweet little gifts but I am a big fan of Etsy Store ZoeysAttic. The store has over 100,000 sales and has been around since 2008.You can see some of her designs below.
