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!
A few weeks ago, I took the boys to Grogg's Green Barn to celebrate Earth Day. The boys had never been there before and I wanted to show them more about planting and how important nature and taking care of the Earth is. We learned about various plants and their purposes and we also learned about hydroponics.
I am so thrilled to share that I have partnered up with Loft at Utica Square to host the very first Loft Style Social and you are all invited! Join us on May 25th from 6:00-8:00pm for a fun evening of shopping, sweets and sips! We will have a Braid Bar and Brow shaping and techniques! There will also be a special discount for all and a giveaway for a gift card too! You can RSVP here!
I am so excited to share some of my summer essentials from Sashy Pant's new Summer Line that is starting to launch today and I am all about the florals, stripes and ruffles!
This past weekend, the Mister and I hopped on a plane for a little getaway to Vegas and this also was his first time to visit and I was really excited for him to experience the city. We were only going to be there for a few days so we kept a pretty light schedule and did not make any plans except to explore and eat all the things. After we checked into our hotel, we decide to explore the streets and the various casinos.
