Macramé & Mimosas Event

Hello, lovelies!

Today’s post is one that I am very excited to share! Earlier this month, I went to a blogger event in Tulsa with my friend Tiffany and we had such a great time! The Macramé and Mimosas event was hosted at the Retro Den in Tulsa and we were taught how to create a gorgeous macramé planter by Natasha from House Sparrow Fine Nesting.

We each made a cute macramé planter and made it home to succulent plant.  There were mimosas, churros, and lots of coffee to go around.  Ashley and Ashley, owners of the Retro Den, made everyone feel like they were at home and they had everything we could possibly need at the event.  Their store has a lot of amazing couches, planters, glassware, prints, and so much more! If you are ever in Tulsa on Harvard street, make sure to stop by and tell them that Mimi from Glitz and Glitter sent you! I had a hard time not buying everything in their store, especially the retro couches and pillows! You could turn your home into your modern Pinterest dreams with all of the furniture and artwork they have!

Tiffany and I (photo above!) made a day out of it and went to Utica Square while we were in the area: Starbucks and sitting outside on the patio.  Tulsa is such a historic city and there are a lot of cool digs if you know where to find them! Utica Square, Cherry Street, and Downtown are just a few of my favorite spots!

We met a few new bloggers and the setting was so relaxing and chilled out.

Macramé is an art, one that is well worth the time and effort! Natasha has a shop on Etsy and she has really amazing patterns for sale so you can make your own macramé creations!

The Retro Den hosts  really cool events so make sure to go follow them on their accounts so you can stay updated on all of their events!

Abbey is such an amazing photographer! I hardly ever love photos that are taken of me, but I absolutely love the photos she took!

Next week’s post is going to be a very fun Christmas guide that includes a lot of really cool Etsy finds that I love, so stay tuned for that! I hope you have a great week and that you had an amazing Thanksgiving, if you celebrate the holiday.  We are currently dressing up our house for Christmas and have tunes playing in the background.

Feel free to connect with me on all of my socials! Links will be below!

Have a great week, babes, and don’t forget to smile!

Liebster Award pt. 2

liebster2

Hi, loves!

Yesterday I got a notification that I was nominated for the Liebster Award again! I have been nominated a few times and I want to apologize if you nominated me and I never got back to you or thanked you for the nomination.  I am truly awful at responding to tweets and things, so I sincerely apologize!

The blogger who nominated me is Ashley from It’s Ashley Marie (her links will be below!).  Thank you so much, Ashley! You are a sweetie!

So to complete this nomination, you are supposed to give 10 facts about yourself and answer the 6 interview questions (the questions that I answer, you will answer if you accept the nomination!).  I hope that makes sense! 

 

10 Facts About Me

 

  1. I think I am a weird mix of extrovert and introvert.  There are some cases where I am a very exuberant and out-going person, but then there are other times when I want to hide behind a curtain and never be seen by anyone.  
  2. I don’t know what my Meyers-Briggs personality! I know everyone is always saying “Oh, yeah I am totally an INTJ.” but I have no idea what that stands for! Honestly, I say “integer” in my head when I see that..it makes no sense, I know.  So let’s find out what group I am in, shall we? (about a 5 minute time lapse..) Okay, never mind.  It costs about $45 to take the official test and I don’t care that much to pay for it.  
  3. I am going to be majoring in fashion marketing next year!
  4. My favorite nail design is the ever classic French manicure! There’s just something about that perfectly drawn white nail tip that is so fetching!
  5. I’m currently working on writing a script for a play…we’ll see how that goes.
  6. I’m pretty old school when it comes to dating.  I want to get to know the person as a friend before I consider dating them and when I do date someone, it is because I can see a possible future with them.  Is that old school?
  7. I think men are 100% more attractive when they wear a tantalizing cologne! Woodsy amber scents are my favorite!
  8. I love camping and hiking! A few of the places I want to camp or hike are the Ozarks, the Smokey Mountains, and Colorado.  You bring the organic snacks (yes, organic tastes better!), I’ll bring the tent and camping bags!  
  9. I would really like to own a cabin somewhere in the woods where there are pine trees for miles! It has to have a nice deck where I can sit and have my morning coffee or tea while I enjoy the fresh air.  I basically want to buy a cabin in Ruidoso, New Mexico! If you are ever looking for a great place to vacation and have a good chance at seeing elk, go to Ruidoso! 
  10. I own one painting! I bought it for under $5 at a small sale and got it framed.  I don’t know why I love it so much, but it is the first piece of art that I purchased, so it holds a place in my heart! The artist is a woman named Elizabeth McHugh and I haven’t been able to find any other information about her, but, Elizabeth, I love your art.

  1. What is one place you haven’t been that is on the top of your bucket list?
    Definitely the UK! I want to see all of it! There are so many beautiful places that I have seen on Instagram from the UK and I want to go see them in person!
  2. What is the most daring experience you have had? 
    I just recently went to an amusement park in OKC and there was a roller coaster that did a circle loop and you would be upside down when you went in that loop.  I was so terrified of falling to my death! It was so much fun though, so I ended up going on it another 3 or 4 times! The other experience was last year at the Tulsa State Fair and they had a ride that goes up in the air and stops, then unexpectedly drops to the ground! My bum rose out of my seat and I knew it was the end.  But the straps and bar held me in, so I am here to tell you how I almost died and flew straight into heaven!
  3. What is your greatest accomplishment?
    Goodness! I can’t quite say.  Getting accepted into my choice for uni definitely is up there.  I’m happy I was accepted because I only had one definite backup where I was already enrolled!
  4.   What is your biggest fear? 
    I honestly have so many that it is hard to list all of them! I fear the lack of love and happiness, that everyone secretly hates me, and that I am never going to be successful in anything I want to do.  And suffocation..I fear suffocation greatly.
  5. What’s a hidden talent you have? 
    I can do a weird thing with my eyes when I look up and they look funny.  I call it Gecko Eyes.  One ends up farther apart than the other one.  It’s quite strange! 
  6. What’s an activity, craft, or sport that you want to learn to do?
    I would love to know how to sing properly! I love singing but if it comes to more than just jamming out in my car in the mornings while I am driving to uni, then all bets are off! I don’t tend to sing in front of others because I value their ability to hear! 

 

Here are my nominees for the Liebster Award! 

You guys don’t have to do the post if you don’t want to! It is a fun post and helps readers get to know you, so I personally love these posts! 

I hope you all have a great Sunday and the rest of the week! I’m off to my first blogger event today and I am going to take lots of photos and have a blog post about it next week! 

Lots of love and hugs!
