neon + rose gold.

I was browsing Pinterest the other day and found this picture. I think the combo here is really inspiring, because it just so happens that I purchase my first rose gold pieces this weekend. So I thought I would share a little about them because...
1. Rose Gold is going to be huge this Fall. 
2. I'm in love with them! (and obviously that is the most important reason to y'all right...?)

As y'all know, I am a Stella & Dot stylist now, and almost two months in I'm still loving it all. I've ordered lots of samples. Some that I honestly don't really like, and some that I love. As always, I will never share something with y'all unless it's a love. Having said that...

I seriously love these things. They are perfect for everyday, just to add a little something.
I love the rose gold, obviously, but I really love the pyramid style. It makes me feel a little edgy. And with that price? What's not to love!

Okay. I'll be honest. The only reason I bought this bracelet was to go with the earrings. But since I've gotten it, I drool every time I look at it! The picture does not do it justice! I love this on it's own. I love it stacked up my arm with other bracelets. I love it paired with rose gold, silver, or hematite. I can't stress how much you need (uhmmm..) YES! Need this piece!

Eventually I'd like to get this spiced up version of the Tribute:
(As seen on Emily Maynard in her latest People photoshoot with precious Jef!)

Are you into the rose gold trend as much as I am?
What's your favorite way to wear it?

I'm back from NOLA. Can you say best week of the whole summer?! I loved being able to bond and work with the people that went, some most already great friends of mine. We spent our days painting (and dancing around the room) and spent our nights over-indulging on homemade Louisiana meals. Saturday, we got to go into the French Quarter and play around. I was a smitten kitten.
God was definitely at work all week. I loved the fact that by me serving others, I was the one that was blessed in abundance. To God be the glory!
Louisiana lovin'... I don't know how many secret messages I painted on the walls before the first coat of paint went on. 
We had lunch in this quaint little place. It was super cute and I ate blackened alligator there. I must confess it may just be the best thing I've ever had...
And me and my girlfriends loved us some French Market! 
...And we discovered a cooler full of beads on the way home. Dress-up time while everyone else was asleep! 

Oh. and I got my hair cut.
Don't you just love the overly-spunky duck face? I do.

That's all...
For now.

Logan and I are kicking off our weekend with some time in the mountains- shopping, eating, and just being together. I'm in much need of that lately.

I'm home from camp! And it feels so good. We, my town and church family, are suffering a tragic loss of two precious boy's deaths this week. We had to break the news to the students while at camp, and although I have never seen something so sad, I've also never have felt the presence of God so closely. The students came together, leaning on each other and God for strength and comfort in their lack of understanding of His will.
I'm so proud of how those two young lives are absolutely changing that face of my town, Tennessee, and now, as MSNBC is covering their story, the nation with their stories! The family wishes to focus on the fact that both of the boys lived their lives for Jesus instead of the tragedy in hopes that others will be exposed to the gospel and accept Him as their own Savior! How powerful!
As a friend said, "God is good, all the time and the faith of two young boys and their families can cause mountains to move and hearts to confess."

Praying for the Winsteads and the Lynams. Noah and Nate, you will never be forgotten. 

Please forgive the lack of posting that is to come.
Preparing myself for the weekend, where about me and 5 or 6 of my friends will be the epitome of a camp "counselors" for the children that knew Nate and Noah so well. Prayers would be appreciated.
