Bright Night is Back Yo!

Did you hear!?!?

Whoohoo! I'm so excited! For those of you local ladies that had a chance to experience or see what we did last year at our Bright Night Event, with only 2 weeks to pull everything together... you won't want to miss THIS years bash!

There are so many awesome events targeted to women nowadays, which makes me SO HAPPY! Small business owners, bloggers, teachers, etc...
That being said, Amy, Haylie, Ashley and I wanted to create a fun retreat where ANY woman of ANY background could come and enjoy a day away! Time to relax, laugh with friends, learn a little something, give back and you know... consume massive amounts of Diet Coke, peanut M&M's and chips and salsa. (AKA: all vital necessities for making it through each day... am I right?).

Our main reason for hosting the Bright Night Event has always been to continue to support women in crisis, so when you choose to come, not only are you partaking in awesomeness for yourself, but you are donating right alongside us, because a generous percentage of proceeds from ticket sales goes straight to the local Center for Women and Children in Crisis here in Utah!

We've already sold the bulk of our tickets, but I couldn't let a second more go by without blogging about this day for all of you to see and hopefully be a part of too!

Here are the deets:

An ALL day ENERGETIC retreat for ALL women
Yes, ALL! 
No need to be a blogger, fashionista or even rocket scientist (in case you were wondering) - just a girl who wants an amazing day all to herself, full of happy chatter and invigorating classes hosted by women you know and love!

Life is Life

Life is life.

Kids and their stuff take over sometimes (no matter how many attempts were made to put things back exactly where YOU think they should go).
... what the (???)

Decorating goes undone, because other things sit higher on your priority list

And NON fun things like laundry, organizing and touching up walls due to scuffs, nail holes and dings, have to get done.

But then there's all the good stuff that sits in between all the imperfect, undone, and chores.

The wild, free, beautiful hair on this darling girl

The funny and sassy attitude her sister brings

Happy memories created with siblings, cousins and nieces.

Longer days with light for Spring break, that allow for scooting around the neighborhood and sidewalk chalking with "friends"

Trying new things, and most of all... filling up your creative cup until it overflows.

I'm not sure when my attitude of "just letting things go" will end (?) I'm sure I'll eventually get my act together and finish a project all the way, blog regularly or (ehhhm)... go back to the gym. 

But for now, Life is Life, and I'm feeling happy, content, busy and creative. In a nutshell... more like ME than I've felt in a long time.
So... that's all that matters in this moment.

How are all of YOU!? 


Pillow Palooza & "Are You fo' Realz?" Dealz!

This gig with GroopDeals and Ivory Bleu has been SO MUCH FUN! Yes, of course there's about a million and one new things to learn, from merchandising, styling and photography... all the way down to new computer systems and operations - but it's exciting to try something new, yet still be in the same style and design world that I love!

These past few days have been full of awesomeness, and since this new job is sort of like my baby right now, I have to show off a couple of my favorite items I've put up!
Some of these are still on sale if you go over to the GroopDealz main page, but others have expired or sold out already.

I'm especially excited, because Ivory Bleu is featuring a pillow palooza extravaganza today! Pillows sold in sets of three, with perfectly paired patters. There are 18 different styles, so don't forget to check it out!

PLUS, I'm finally featuring the adorable Updown Tote that I love so much! I ordered it months ago, and have been itching to get it up for sale ever since. It's large, durable, has a really sturdy bottom so it doesn't tip over when you set it down, a cute black and white striped interior and even an adjustable, detachable shoulder strap that it comes with.
Yeahhhh so... I'll probably be buying one in every color for myself. HA!

I'm putting together a few personal and home posts for the next couple of updates, but I just wanted you guys to know about these fun sales, because I'm adding fab stuff everyday. You can subscribe to the GroopDealz newsletters to get updates each day, or follow the Ivory Bleu Instagram page.

OH! and believe me, I'm working really hard on ordering PLUS SIZE clothing too! It's WAY more difficult than I thought, because lots of brands don't run true-to-size with curvy items, so I've got to do a bit more research on the best styles, fits and looks. Be patient with me though, I promise I'm listening to you ladies, and I want those sizes TOO!
