No one ever said dates have to be super elaborate or expensive to be memorable. They also never said being newly self employed was easy, so it’s a good thing there are equally fun alternatives to the “just like the movies” dates that people tend to forget about, like biking to a picnic spot in one of your favorite neighborhoods as a couples day date idea, because that’s the kind of budget we’re on!

I’m also not referring to the Pinterest picnics where someone miraculously packed a fine china cake stand with perfectly iced cupcakes to place next to their dapper, model boyfriend who would never actually be caught dead sitting on a monogrammed cashmere throw in matching outfits in public. No, this is a real life couples day date that you can actually pack in a bicycle basket with your (equally dapper, that part was true) boyfriend and can still be just as cute and thought out as any.

Obviously you’ll need a cute bike to start out, so Brooklyn Bicycle Co. will be giving one lucky reader $499 for a bike of their own! Click through to see how I packed our real life picnic and enter the giveaway, plus I need to show how I put my DIY polka dot bicycle basket to good use…

I’m pretty much a serial stacking ring wearer if there ever was such a thing. I just really love the simplicity of the ultra thin look paired with dainty bracelets, which makes me feel like I sort of tried when I end up wearing almost the same outfit for the second time that week just to survive the deadline madness that happens around here.

To help spread the holiday love on to you, I teamed up with one of my favorites for this Hannah Noami giveaway for $125 towards your favorite items from her shop to either keep or pass along as gifts for the holidays!

The holidays really mean two things around here: one being that cake and cookies are always a good idea, and two, my mint green, gold, and white color combination obsession is in season for a full month. Let’s just say I always run with that for as long as I can, and H&M is helping support the habit.

My ideal holiday style keeps you party ready either as a host or party-goer, plus a few gift ideas on my Pinterest board for gift giving for everything in between. And of course, there always has to be a DIY…

Lovely Lady Feature on Emma Dime!

10/01/14

For a small intermission between room makeover posts, you can see my Lovely Lady feature on Emma Dime today sharing my summer uniform, and I mean that literally. I think I wore this shirt 5 out of 7 days a week because it was the lightest shirt I owned for Houston heat waves while still looking somewhat dressed up… eating popsicles. Or something like that.

You can see the full post here!
