new dress and shoes

Life has gotten so busy lately that I ended up taking an unexpected break from blogging. I’m not complaining… the busy has been wonderful, creative, and full of inspiration. It has also given me a TON of new content that I just have to get around to finding the time to craft and share posts about. Below are a few snapshots of life lately and some looks into what you’ll be seeing on the blog in the very near future.

Disclaimer: I received some free product and/or free entry into an event. Everything is disclosed below. All opinions are my own.

new dress and shoes
I was invited to a Portland Fashion Week event to meet designers and see some samples of their work. I wore this lovely new dress and shoes!
I was so nervous to meet the designers… but, they were so sweet and their work was awesome. Look forward to seeing more about local designers at the end of the month and into September. Sushmita of Amrapali was a beautiful soul and her work is fabulous.
I cannot wait to go visit Sun Jin Lee’s bridal shop in downtown Portland. Her work is out-of-this-world gorgeous. Lots of pretty wedding dresses will be featured soon!
I received an awesome VIP box from Puffs that included some fun workout items and their new Fresh Faces products. Look for a review soon!
Received a Lolly watch in the mail yesterday… it is cute AND it smells good too! Can’t wait to share my style post and an exclusive discount! Go check out their site and keep in mind which one you want so you can use your discount soon.

My little guy turned two. The party was fun and I have lots more wonderful photos from Macey of Motormouth Studios to share soon. And, I’ll have some cool free printables as well!
I’m still trying to get to my Athletic Club as much as possible and am still writing about my fitness journey on their blog. It is a slow process— but, I am seeing results!
Pukka Tea
I’ve been working hard on a fun Portland Food Bloggers’ event that is slotted for Saturday. Pukka Herbs sent some of their teas to share with the bloggers… it smells amazing. I can’t wait to open mine and try it!
Even though I was taking a break from blogging… I have been busy working. Lots of designs, emails, and plans have been made. Hopefully you’ll see the results here on the blog!


If you really just can’t get enough of me (why, thank you!) then check out my guest posts from the past week or two:
