This time last year, I was helping my sister plan her wedding and find her dream dress. Everyone knows how important it is to secure the dress, venue, and catering plans, but confirming items like the invitations, save the dates, and thank you notes is an often overlooked step. Thanks to my Facebook memories reminding me of all the bridal expos and dress shops we visited, I've been inspired to share some important reminders with current brides!

Below, I've listed five stationery items that are essential for every wedding and beautiful options for all of these can be found on Basic Invite with nearly unlimited color options (including a new rose gold foil!) and the opportunity to receive custom samples to help you decide on your perfect design!

happy fall y'all!

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

I want to dive into the Halloween spirit and get really into all things fall today, so I went through some fall tags on Youtube to pick and choose the most interesting questions! Even though it doesn't really feel like fall yet, we are almost halfway through October! I've had one pumpkin spice latte this season - iced, of course - and I haven't even watched Hocus Pocus yet this month! Maybe reading + answering these questions will help us jump into the fall mood - be sure to leave your answers in the comments below because I would love to chit chat and catch up with you guys while finding out your favorite things about fall!

Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?

No! It's good, but definitely not the best flavor of all time.

What song really gets you into the fall spirit?

Grim Grinning Ghosts from the Haunted Mansion ride.

I turned 21 yesterday! Thank you to everyone who sent me birthday messages on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, etc. - you all mean so much to me and all those messages were a very special part of my big day! You might have seen on my story that my mom and little brother woke me up with a birthday breakfast in bed featuring a mimosa and my favorite - cinnamon roll poptarts!

Later, I went out to lunch with my best friend and grandma. My friend Marleigh tried her best to make my birthday balloon photoshoot dreams come true by going all around town to get the huge foil number balloons. When she brought the balloons to my house, we went straight to my room to take cute pictures and before we could get started, the "2" balloon went straight into the ceiling fan (which was on!) and immediately popped. We hadn't even taken one picture yet!

8 Ways to be More Professional

Tuesday, September 19, 2017

Whether you're in high school, college, or your career, you're going to have encounters where professionalism is a big deal. When you're interacting with people, you want to show that you mean business! We all know the basics of professionalism - proper dress, behavior, conversation - but I like to take it up a notch and really wow people. Below, I've listed ten habits you can pick up to increase your overall level of professionalism in jobs, interviews, networking, and many more situations.

#1: Send a thank you after an interview. 

Some people will tell you a handwritten note is best, but I find that an email is more practical and timely. A thank you is a thank you, so just make sure you're letting the interviewer know that you appreciate the time and effort they took to speak with you using whichever method you prefer.

Since I'll be turning the big 2-1 later this month, I thought it would be super fun to share some of my favorite songs from each of my 21 years. You'll have to forgive me for how insanely long this list is, but you might be thanking me for reminding you of some amazing throwbacks! Let me know in the comments which of these songs were your jam!
