This week was a whirlwind after getting home from the conference. I want to start off with a quick note about a huge favorite from the week.
A family friend who is volunteering with Make-a-Wish asked if I would dress up as Belle during a little girl’s send off party this past week. This little girl was so excited to head to Disney World and meet ALL the princesses. I was so happy to be apart of her day and put a smile on her face. It reminded me that I need to incorporate more giving and volunteering in my life because you get so much out of it.
I had a great experience meeting new people from travel bloggers to industry leaders at TBEX North America. If you missed my takeaways from the experience or are curious about what goes on at a blogging conference check out my TBEX post here.
I can’t believe I wasn’t familiar with Samantha Brown’s work before this weekend. She has been a host with the travel channel for 15 years and a frequent visitor to the Oprah Show and Today show. She now owns her own production company and is producing travel content the way she wants to! Her keynote speech really resonated with me and she may be my new favorite person. Clearly we are on the same wave length in this picture 😉 I was so excited to find out she too practice improv in her 20s.
I’m not going to get into all the details here, look for my post on Monday, but Huntsville is pretty cool! I was so happy to experience this small American city with so much history. I’m adding it to my summer road trip destination’s list, especially if you have young children, since it’s on the way from Nashville.
I’ve always been a fan of Toms, but I think I found a new style to love. The classic Espadrille slip on is comfortable and goes well with all my roll up jeans for spring. I am getting my miles out of these so far!
Estee Lauder Lipsticks
If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile then you know my love for BiteBeauty when it comes to lipstick. However, this week I found two new loves from Lancome, Pink Parafait and Neutral. I forgot to take a picture of them but I’m wearing both actually in my picture above as Belle. ****updated picture below wearing them! They are moisturizing, long-lasting and vibrant, everything I want in a lipstick 🙂
I hope everyone has a beautiful Mother’s Day weekend! I can’t wait to shower my mama and grandma with some love 🙂
