We’re back with our Need it Now! Small Business Series feature after a summer sabbatical and what better company to introduce in the middle of summer than Las Bayadas? Las Bayadas makes THE Mexican Beach blanket. Inspired by the bright, colorful fabrics used to decorate houses in Mexico, the wheels started turning and the perfect beach towel was born! Not only are the beautiful (and functional!), but 10% of each blanket sold supports a scholarship program for local Mexican students. You’ve gotta love companies who give back!
I got the chance to interview the brains behind Las Bayadas to hear their story about their entrepreneurial adventure. Let’s take a closer look behind the scenes of Las Bayadas!
It’s finally here! Something I like to think of as Christmas in July-the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I was able to shop the presale and walked away with some great steals. This year, I was extra excited to shop since last year I missed it after giving birth to my second son (totally worth it, though!) I’m pretty excited about my new finds and am secretly looking forward to some fall weather to break out some of my new wardrobe. Today, I want to share some of my personal favorites from the sale. Be sure to check it out – prices go up on August 3rd, so grab what you can now!
If you’ve already shopped the sale, what did you purchase? If you haven’t, I’m dying to hear what’s on your wish list!
As of today, this year is HALF WAY OVER! I can’t even. Being the first of the month, you know what that means…FREE desktop download time! This month, I joined forces with Emily Henney to bring you a fun, flamingo-mingle themed desktop calendar. I’m also loving this new Brand Builder image from my collaboration with SC Stockshop. Such a beautiful way to show off my digital work. Take a look at my curated Brand Builder here! Before you download this free desktop background, I do kindly ask you to read our usage policy:
A year ago today, I was huge. I mean HUGE. And impatient. My c-section was scheduled for June 25th and I just COULD NOT wait any longer to get my baby out. I checked into the ER and was admitted to triage. My doctor was not about to send me home just to have me come back in less than 24 hours, so he scheduled my section for late that day. At 5:23 pm on June 24, 2014 one of the happiest moments of my life occurred. My second son, Mason Lee, was welcomed to the world. Read More… Happy First Birthday, Mason!
