Friday Give-Away!! {a yard sale sweater, a sneak peak at our room, and a lovely necklace to win!}

Friday, October 17

I go to grad school all day Thursday, and man, when I walk through the door around 10pm, I am exhausted! But then I get super giddy because IT'S THE WEEKEND! I'm gonna have me some fun:)

One lovely project i've been working on lately is our bedroom make over!! Loves, I'm So excited to share it with you... but you'll have to wait patiently as it still need a few finishing touches! Today is just a sneak peak…so get excited! My favorite thing to do in the morning is snuggle up in my big white chair, drink tea, and read. The sun shines through the windows, and I journal, pray, and just generally bask in all the light that surrounds me. If you're wondering if i'm actually reading that vintage book…the answer is YES. These old Readers Digests, that I swooped up at a yard sale for pennies, actually have some pretty hilarious and wholesome short stories in it. If you're asking me if I was reading it that very moment…totally not. It was staged…{cheers to being authentic!}. But that's pretty much what I look like every morning, cuddled in that chair with a book, ….but with scrubby jammies, messy hair and no make-up. I'll leave that up to your imagination!

Speaking of pennies...See the oversized maroon sweater i'm wearing? Twenty five cents at a yard sale, and it still had all the tags on it! I'm pretty sure it was probably a grammy sweater from Coldwater Creek or something, but I'm going with it! You can't beat 25 cents… {except when you have a scandalous experience with it…}


My favorite thing about my outfit it the gorgeous gold necklace hanging on my neck! I recently heard about a beautiful jewelery company called Ekata Designs. They are based in Memphis, TN and employ Nepali Refugees. swoon. You all know Nepal is very near and dear to my heart, as we lived there last year.
Not only is Ekata transforming the lives of refugees who are working to build a better life and a future here in America, but they also are creating some really innovative and adorable lines of jewelry! Today, I'm giving away the same necklace that I am wearing!
