Can we talk about how summer feels like it’s almost over guys? Woof. I hate being that person who says crap like that. Don’t you feel like you want to punch people who say things like that? All it does is put a big fat rain cloud over everyone’s summery, sunshiney parade. Way to go Shannon. Furthermore, summer is really only about half way over. There’s tons left to be enjoyed! My bad guys. My bad. Maybs I’m feeling like it’s dwindling in a depressing way because my maternity leave ends and I go back to work at the beginning of August, plus all of our summer visitors and vacays have basically come and gone. Orrrrrr maybe I found out last night that husband has to take a sudden out of town trip for four days this week and it was too expensive/didn’t work logistically for me to go, so baby and I have to stay here by ourselves (yikes). Orrrrrr maybe my house looks like a hurricane blew through it and I’m just a Melancholy Melanie about a boat load of silly things today. Woof – sorry guys. Real life. But 1-2-3 I’m over it! Counting my blessings and choosing to be happpppppyyyyyyyyy! Right?

Husband and I met up with my family a few weeks ago and stayed for a week at the Oregon Coast. The house we stayed in was absolutely stunning – a cape cod inspired, massive home with beautiful hard wood floors, white molding everywhere, pale gray walls, vaulted ceilings, balconies everywhere. It was gorge. One of those things that’s hard to capture in a photo, ya know? These pics were taken outside the house. I’m missing it so badly on a day like today, where all I want to do is be back on carefree vacation! K I’m gonna shut it now and go clean my house. Woot! 

Have a ‘There’s still tons of summer left’ Tuesday! 

Thanks for putting up with me!

I like people who help people

July 10, 2014

And that’s why I like anneb and The Made Collection. Anneb is an authentic international handbag brand with custom-made, adorrrrrrable handbags, clutches, totes and cosmetic bags (no, really. Check them out. Uh. Dor. Able.). The Made Collection is the philanthropic brainchild of anneb’s creator, Sarah Burroughs. Sarah is running a campaign on Indiegogo from now until July 25 that deserves some major love and attention. Long story short, she is starting a sewing school that will do two really cool things: a) employ refugees in the Salt Lake City area (helping people!), AND b) restore the long lost art of sewing (ummm, if only I knew how to sew). As someone who genuinely believes in the importance of service and in this particular cause, I had to share it with you!

The link below will take you to a very, very short video that will explain more about Sarah’s campaign. If you feel inspired to do so, you can make a donation HERE. Service is cool. Giving back is cool. Helping others is suuuupes cool. It makes you feel good, amiright? And we’ve all been given so much – we all have a lot to be grateful for. Here’s a way you can easily pay it forward. Thanks for your consideration and attention to this rad cause! Good luck Sarah! xoxo

p.s. Keep your eyes peeled next week for how I styled the killer spotted print clutch shown below. It’s officially one of my faves.
