This is a super quick & simple d.i.y. post that I thought you ladies might enjoy!! I had this beautiful colorful friendship bracelet that I purchased in Cancun last year for $1. I also bought this cheesy rhinestone choker-esque necklace for under $5 the other day at the thrift store & let me tell you they were made for each other :)
to create this blinged out BFF bracelet you'll need a "friendship" bracelet [I think the flat ones work better], a strand of rhinestones either from a necklace or bought in bulk strands, needle, & thread
I cut the necklace in half & decided to use the side with the clasp that way I could use it to link on to the loop at the other end.
I lined up the rhinestones with the bracelet & sewed in between each rhinestone 3 times to keep it in place. YES, it really is that simple :)   
TAAA-DAAA & now you have a perfect sparkly NEW addition to your arm party!

Madewell + CAP FABB

Last night was another wonderful meet-up, held for a second time at the Madewell in Georgetown! I knew it was going to be a great night when I was greeted by Lacey who was rockin a "FLOWER POWER" suit, it was seriously adorable! As soon as I walked up the steps I was overwhelmed by all the new faces & fantastic outfits. One of the first bloggers I had the pleasure of chatting with that night was Leslie from Fashion Needy. It's so much fun getting to meet people in person after following their blogs & getting to know them over the internet. After talking I ran strait over to the cupcakes & champagne :) Ok, enough talking on to the pictures! OMG I forgot to tell you I looked like an extra from a 1960's movie .. don't worry you'll see what I mean soon enough lol. This is a side effect from getting dressed in your car & not having access to a full length mirror!
necklace, boots, & vest-THRIFTED, blouse-GIFT FROM MY BFF, dress (worn as skirt)-EXPRESS
after the meet-up several of us [10+] walked up the street to Paolo's where Cheralee & I spent the remainder of the evening getting brain freezes & making mustaches! It's always a blast getting to hang out with other fashion-minded people & I <3 just checking out what everyone's wearing :) I got some presents today in the mail & they really made my day!! I'm going to do a post on them soon, HAPPY ALMOST WEEKEND :)
PS: If you want to see more pics from Tuesday's event check out some of these blogs!

Birthday Weekend!

What an amazing weekend! As all of you know Saturday was David's B-day & thanks to all your sweet comments his head has grown even larger!! I decided to share some pictures from our weekend :)
I tried on this adorable dress at H&M but unfortunately it was too tight on the butt lol :(
So instead I bought a cute little bundle of bracelets to add to my jewelry collection 
Steak Bruschetta with a balsamic glaze @ Brio after shopping
I baked David an upside down Banana Coconut B-day cake

Happy B-day to the MR.

Today is my husband David's birthday!! We celebrated a little early last night with an impromptu shopping spree to ON, Gap, H&M, & Marshalls.  I was so excited that he wanted to go shopping it was almost like a gift to me lol :) Then we went to Brio for their late night happy hour (All the bar food is $2.95) so we pigged out. Anyways, I was so excited to give him his gift (A new soccer jersey) that I made him open it last night .. I'm kinda really impatient, but he LOVED it so that's all that matters! This afternoon we had chinese food with his family followed by cake (which I made & will post later). Tonight we're going to Power Plant in Baltimore with some of our friends to celebrate. Here's some pics of David Us from the past couple of years :)
OMG we look so youngggg

I just wanted to wish him a happy B-day on my blog since he makes up such a huge portion of my life & I LOVE him very much, & I'm so happy he's mine :)

Hope all of you are having fun weekends!

Brunch @ El Centro

So you know this isn't a personal style blog right?! Haha it started out as one, but it's pretty much turned into a food diary :) In the last post I showed you all the pretty outfits & the beautiful people who attended, but now I'm gonna show you the YUMMMY food that we feasted on!
Each guest of the event had a personalized sketch waiting for them to mark their seat at the table.
I am freaking in love with all of the drawings & on top of that I got to meet the artist in person! His name is Bidkart & his work is fantastic you can check it out here.

I was sipping on these scrumptious Pineapple Aqua Fresca Cocktails all afternoon & let me tell you they were FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC! Like really you need to try one :) 
for starters we had tortilla chips paired with: chunky guacamole, salsa, & shrimp ceviche. 
Starting @12:00 & working clockwise 
Enfrijoladas, Mexican French Toas, Sopes de Huevo y Salsa Verde, & Jaliscos Enchilada
MY FAVE DISH [hands down] the french toast [bottom right]

& one of the many plates of tacos we consumed!
It was a fantastic afternoon & I'm still in awe of all the amazing, talented, & creative forces I was surrounded by. You guys inspire me to really go for what I want no matter how far out of reach it seems. 
This awesome video is by Lacey & you should watch it because it will make you :)

Spicy Candy DC Anniversary Fiesta!

Whewww! What a fun filled weekend :) This past Saturday I had the pleasure of attending Spicy Candy DC's Anniversary Fiesta at El Centro. It was such a fun venue, we had most of the basement level to ourselves & it was such a comfortable space to mix mingle, snack, & most importantly snap photos! Our lovely hostesses for the brunch were rocking La Petite Marmoset reconstructed skirts & beautiful smiles!
