I went, I shopped and I gave my entry way a little refresh and I am so excited to share it with you today! This past week, I was invited to teach a fun DIY scarf project for the grand opening of the new Cost Plus World Market in Tulsa, OK. It was so fun to get a chance to mingle with other local bloggers and get to meet new friends. I also was so pumped to finally get a chance to check out the new store and start filling my cart with all the things! So, let's do a little reveal on my Entry Way refresh shall we?!
This past weekend, I had a little mommy time to run a few errands without the boys so I decided to pop in my local LOFT and take a look at some of their new fall pieces and you guys, I am officially ready for sweater weather even though it is still 100 degrees outside. Fall is my most favorite season of the year and give me all the layers and cardigans. Today, I am sharing some of my fun fitting room finds and basically all these items came home with me.
TODAY, people TODAY is one of my most favorite days of the year! It's finally the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and I can't wait to share with you all of my absolute favorite picks from the sale this year! If you are unfamiliar with this sale, let me give you the lowdown friend. It's a sale that only happens ONE time a year where they mark down their NEW fall favorites at awesome prices. It's a great way to get a jumpstart on your fall wardrobe for a fraction of the cost. Unfortunately, in the great state of Oklahoma where I live, there isn't a Nordstrom close by so I will be shopping strictly online however, the plus side to that is Nordstrom offers easy returns and FREE SHIPPING always and if you have a Nordstrom Rack close by, you can return your items there with no problem at all.
I'm so thrilled to share with you that after the amazing response from our Blogger Panel Event last month at 36 Degrees North, I will be back next month to host the first workshop of a three part series called Business of Blogging: Foundation & Technical Logistics. My workshop will be on Wednesday, August 9th from 5:30-6:30pm at 36 Degrees North and you can register for this free workshop HERE!
f you haven't heard already, Cost Plus World Market is having their grand opening this week! When I first heard of the store opening in Tulsa, I was so excited and I could not wait for it officially opened and now the time is here. If you are unfamiliar with Cost Plus World Market then you will be in for a treat because they carry such a variety of items from home decor to the coolest kitchen items. Over the weekend, I headed to check out the new store and I wanted to share some of my favorite items I found.
A few weeks ago, the Mister and I had a day date on the Old Urban Trolley and we had the best time. If you have never heard of the Old Urban Trolley, it is exactly like it sounds. It's a trolley that takes you on a tour of downtown Tulsa and gives you all the history of Tulsa and the downtown buildings.
So if you follow along with me via Instagram ( @heythuydotcom ) then you know I finally had to get my hair officially balayage because gray hairs. Yup, it's true folks. I suddenly will hit my mid thirties in a few months and all of a sudden, things change like getting shiny gray hairs and don't get me started on how carbs are instantly attracted to me even when I just say no, what the heck?! Last week along with one of my co-workers, I decided to join Weight Watchers online.
As you may have noticed, my blog just got a new look and I couldn't be more excited! Just like anything else, as time evolves we as people change and I felt like my blog no longer matched my personality or the direction I was working towards so I reached out to Rachel of Intentionally Designed who created my website and she took all my thoughts and created a website that I am completely in love with. I have known Rachel for quite some time and I am always amaze how patient and how she is always so helpful and thoughtful with her words. If you are looking for someone to help you design your blog/website, I highly recommend Rachel!
Whew, I survived! Last night I join three other amazing bloggers for a Blogger Panel event hosted by 36 Degrees North. If you are unfamiliar of 36 Degrees North, it is Tulsa's Basecamp for Entrepreneurs, community resources and startup programs. I am so thrilled to see 36 Degrees North help build our community through various workshops and events. It was a packed house last night with over 125 people that RSVP to attend. We each had an opportunity to share a little background on how we started our blog, how we make money from blogging and brand collaborations. It was so great to meet and chat with so many entrepreneur that are right here in Tulsa and that have some really great ideas on building their blog and brand.
Last week I had the pleasure to host a Style Social event at Loft in Utica Square. If you follow me via Instagram or my blog then you know that I am quite the frequent Loft shopper and that I recently started sharing my Loft finds over on Instagram under Hey_Loft and I would love for you to follow along with me over there too!
Can I get some praise hands but this mama of two FINALLY found a pair of jean shorts that I feel like are stylish and that I would actually leave the house in. I am normally not a big fan of shorts in general but I wanted to find a pair of jean shorts to wear this summer and plus I knew they would be a perfect piece for our beach vacation later on this summer. I got these Cuffed Boyfriend Denim shorts from Old Navy and I actually sized down for a better fit plus they are under $20.00! They are super stretchy, fit well and have the perfect distressed look.I also found a few fun tops, a midi dress and a new swimsuit which were all on sale too!
Oh summer, I am so excited you are here and that it is official sandal weather! A week or two ago, I was shopping online at Old Navy for some new summer sandals and it was quite the task to decide which ones I wanted so I decided to order several pairs and try them out to see which ones would be best for summer and I thought I would do a little review here on the blog for you in case you were shopping for summer sandals too! Plus they were on super sale!
