Twinkle, Twinkle, It's a Sprinkle!




This past weekend, I hosted a baby "sprinkle" for my friend Tara and her baby girl! If you're not familiar, a sprinkle is a fun little name for a smaller baby shower that is typically held for second+ children, especially if they're a different gender than the first child. To me, it's almost a little more fun because usually the family has all the stuff they need like strollers and cribs, and you can just buy cutesy, fun gifts!

I saw a cute sprinkle/donut themed invitation online and whipped up my own version really quickly and sent the design off to my favorite invitation printer, Vistaprint! The invites arrived at my house in like four days, just in time to be mailed.


The sprinkle/donut themed seemed super obvious to me, but also super fun! There's so much cuteness on Etsy and Amazon that I could not pass up. If you're planning your own baby sprinkle or donut/sprinkle-themed celebration, I hope these ideas might make getting everything together a little bit easier for you! I even took the theme to the gift and got the cutest little ice cream onesie with sprinkle leggings!

Decor:

Menu:
  • Donut cake featuring Krispy Kreme glazed, chocolate sprinkle, and cake batter stuffed donuts
  • Chicken Salad in phyllo cups topped with half a grape
  • Princess Popcorn: Skinnypop + white and/or pink candy melts melted, drizzled over the popcorn and mixed, then mixed and topped with sprinkles
  • Fruit Cones
  • Mini Chicken & Waffles: Mini Eggos + Chick-fil-A Nuggets drizzled with syrup 
  • Coffee Punch: ten cups of coffee + one tub of vanilla ice cream + two cups of milk + splash of vanilla and as much chocolate syrup as you'd like!
  • Sparkling Pink Lemonade (pink lemonade + Sprite)
  • Donut "fancy cookies" ordered from a local bakery, Sweet T's 












Oh my word, these shoes!!




Celebrate Summer

It's hard to believe that next week is the Fourth of July, and summer is in full swing! I wanted to let you know real quick about a couple of Amazon steals that you shouldn't pass up going into this patriotic holiday.

I'm a big fan of the Lisi Lerch earrings, but sometimes am fearful of committing to a fun color or different style that might only work for one outfit or occasion. Luckily, Amazon has a ton of inspired and similar looks that would be perfect to pump up your look for Independence day! Any of these would be cute with a simple white t-shirt and denim or  shorts, or a easy breezy swing dress on what is almost always one of the hottest days of summer. Plus, these classic colors will carry you through the season and into football and even holiday parties.

And the best part is, these finds are super inexpensive, and tend to be less heavy than the real deal. But wait, there's more! Most of these styles can be ordered in red, white and/or blue, too...so if there is a particular style you like, click the link below to see if it's available in your preferred color.


Did you see this super delicious and easy looking sparkler cake on Facebook? I definitely want to try this! Last year, I baked the 'flag cake' and it almost killed me. Like, literally sitting on the kitchen floor covered in wax paper trying to cut and layer cakes. Too much!

What are you doing for the Fourth?

Let's Conference w/ ATL Girl Gang & Your Social Team







Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the first ever Let's Conference at Factory Atlanta with my friend Kelly, owner and #BossBabe of Mint in Dublin. It was the "best Sunday ever" full of empowering speakers, yummy food, beautiful decor, and lots of inspiration! The space was designed to be super cool, even though it wasn't due to a lack of AC that made us all glisten throughout the day. 

Jeni Britton Bauer of Jeni's Ice Cream




We started off the day with panels and key note speakers, followed by a delish brunch from Fox Bros. BBQ. There were networking breaks, as well as time for ice cream from Jeni's Ice Cream {the Frosé was amaze!}. The networking space was broken into a couple of sections include the Babe Board which featured Polaroids of attendees and their Instagram handles plus a cute sitting area, two different balloon backgrounds, a beautiful ribbon backdrop, and even a photo booth inside a vintage bus! Everything was absolutely beautiful, and it was a great to see so many strong women together and meet other bloggers--it definitely motivated me to get back into the swing of things!
