Maganda Treasures Sarcasm & Whit Candles

IMG_0288

In light of the fact that my boyfriend is deploying soon and my life has become unbelievably chaotic, finding peace in the simple things is something to treasure. So when Maganda Treasures sent me this sarcasm candle (right up my smart-ass alley), we have been lighting it during our chaotic packing up of his house and letting the refreshing smell fill his house as the one best beacon of light throughout our day. And trust me, the ridiculously yummy smell is a welcoming thing when packing blankets apparently come out the package smelling like a fish wrapped in mold wrapped in a bad pair of boots. So, again, this is in insanely welcomed feature in our life currently.

I am the type of person who likes to try and make light of any terrible situation. So having someone with some humor and sarcasm reminds me that the world will keep turning even as he boards his plane. So thanks so much Maganda Treasures, for reminding me to smile and make light of the situation. So if you too, want your house to smell beyond amazing, your life to be filled with smiles and your home to be filled with a fun, new company enjoying the gift of whit; then Maganda Treasures is for you. Head on over to their Etsy store and grab yours at 20% off using the code STYLEmeMINT at checkout.

As always, thanks for reading! And god bless.

Must Have Rompers This Fall

I hate to say it, but Summer is almost over. Ugh. Trust me, i’m a Summer girl, and would love it to go on forever – but unfortunately I live in Utah and that is just not a reality much past September. So therefore, bring on the fall shopping and the floral bliss.

Two of my favorite pieces from my closet were a floral romper maxi and a floral pant suit as well. For me to say I loved a romper through and through is also tough to say considering that when you have to find a bathroom, they seem impossible to take off in time. All while doing the dance! Not to mention my ridiculously long torso (and not the sexy lean kind of long) that seems not to fit in almost any one-piece-anything really. This weekend I wore the floral maxi romper to the Farmers Market near me. It actually gave me a pretty good little breeze even when it is too hot where you feel like you are melting. During the market I realized I had too much water and REALLY needed to go pee. Basically, once I finally found a bathroom, it was a full blown strip down since this was a one piece. Tell me that wasn’t quite the show. What I am trying to say, is if you are wanting to wear a romper, know your surroundings because the bathroom dance is more like an acrobatic show.



But now that you have been warned, I will tell you a little more about these pretty pieces. These are both amazingly comfy. The piece with the shorts, was a purchase from TJ Maxx and the pants were a purchase from Nordstrom’s. I always have to buy a size up to fit the length which then leads to bagginess once that is done. But since I have been able to wonderfully and shockingly find some rompers that I love, I am now watching places like ASOS and Honey Punch like crazy to keep finding more pieces to suit me.

Shop some of my favorites from my collections.As always, happy shopping and thanks for stopping by! I hope you had a great weekend and be sure to stop by on Instagram and Pinterest to say hello.

Much Needed Weekend In The Mountains

Sweater: @utahroots  Shoes: Reebok  Spandex: Nike

Here’s the deal; you don’t really understand just how bad you really need a vacation… until you take one. The typical me is always the one to want to take a last minute vacation, travel alone or with family or friends on a whim or just plain take the car and go. But as of late, I have been so busy with launching my new business consulting women how to start businesses, trading platform changes, sales and so much more that the thought of traveling amidst the chaos sounded more like a chore to get ready for than anything. And therefore, I avoided it like the plague. In comes my sister. Last minute, she is hounding me to take a break, go to the mountains and relax… and good hell, am I happy I did.

There were so many pines as we traveled up to the Uintah mountains and through them. Although we used to camp up there all the time, it all felt knew. I saw more water than I think I ever have in our Utah mountains… waterfalls, random rainstorms, tons of puddles and random lakes and streams… and even more, clean air, bright white clouds and the most brisk of summer cool breeze that I have felt since the Spring. This was why it was all worth it.

We rode the fourwheelers and side by sides up and down many rocky trails where we would stop to let my four year old self play in the bitter cold water or to eat some much needed lunch by a lake we had just found. One waterfall, of which was so tall and beautiful, was one we all had to climb separately to get that once in a lifetime kind of picture. There were so many rivers and streams and waterfalls all over that I honestly wondered “where the hell does all this water come from?” A genuine question, don’t judge. Either way, I don’t see how it can always stay so green down below, grow so brown. This place is a wonder. A place that I want to explore thousands of times over until I feel I am ready to see a new place to adventure. This is in part to there being so much beauty along these gigantic Utah mountains.

Besides riding our butts for hours, we ate a lot of unhealthy food (but yummy none-the-less), my sister and I, of course, kept everyone up having our lengthy conversations at night (of which, Cayman said “you two need to have sleepovers more often because you talk too much! haha”), and we explored different types of terrain with wonder and awe as we then attempted to take family slefies using trees – of which my phone dropped from. Thanks chels 😉 Kidding.

Needless to say, weekends like this, weekends away with family, laughing and playing our hearts out… this is what I live for. These moments that you can never take back and wouldn’t want to anyway. What a beautiful world we live in here in Utah. There is so much diversity in terrain and atmosphere and so much more to see. Join me on my journeys as I continue to explore so much more.

As always, thanks for stopping by. Here’s some more pics from the trip. Enjoy!

So I am pretty sure you have all heard by now, but today is PRIME DAY. Which means Amazon employees are running on illegal amounts of coffee and vodka trying to work through the day to fulfill everyone’s orders. Basically, Amazon is throwing up over 20,000 items at a pretty amazing deal price. So this meant of course, that I wanted to create a small, easily shoppable list of some of my favorite products that you could grab one click to spice up this Tuesday.

Overall, I took some products I have ordered and share them with you. From tech gadgets to make your life a thousand times easier (yes, thanks Alexa for keeping my schedule on point and occasionally ordering jimmy johns for me) to pretty feet accessories to glam up your closet to some of my favorite reads, I put them all in here for you. So go ahead, take a peak. And you can shop and breathe a little easier knowing you’re shopping with a pretty awesome discount. You’re welcome!
