Party Stylin’ 004

And now we officially begin the Valentine’s Day 2014 palooza. SHAZAM! Before I kick in to DIY gear, how about a revival of the Party Stylin’ column, yes!? Have you ever put together an outfit and then decided it was the only outfit you owned that you liked and worn it for as many days in a row as you could go without seeing the same people? Don’t lie, I know you have. That is this outfit for me. Of course, this outfit obsession came a few weeks too early for the more appropriate Valentine’s Day party/dinner/celebratory circuit. But I’m posting it just in time for you guys to think about donning a similar combo just in time for February 14th!

Meet/Make/Do: A Blogger Retreat in Palm Springs!

It’s time for a fun announcement! You may have seen on Instagram when I did a call for vendors for an exciting Palm Springs event I was working on. Well, it’s time to share a bit more about it! Next month, Brittni of Paper & Stitch, Chelsea of Lovely Indeed and myself will be hosting a blogger retreat in Palm Springs called Meet/Make/Do! We’ve invited a few really awesome bloggers and creatives to join us for a few days of creating, chatting and even a little relaxing! The idea started when Brittni was out in LA visiting, and mentioned how much she’d love to get a small group together to work on projects we may not be able to do all by ourselves. And well, we thought, “Let’s do it!” Let’s Meet/Make/Do it, that is. (Ha! Couldn’t resist.) We were excited to get the fine folks at Bing on board and we’ve been using their tools to help us plan this whole shin-dig, which we’ll share about more after the fact (along with all the fun projects we complete, and great spots we hit throughout the retreat)! It’s quickly approaching and we just can’t wait!

While this event is invite-only, if it’s well received we’re excited to see where it takes us! So stay tuned. In the meantime, we’ll be sharing lots about it on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook with the hashtag #meetmakebing. Be sure to follow along there for more! And, because I’m curious, for all you other bloggers reading out there… what would you like to get out of a small retreat like this? Photography and styling help? Organization tips? Would you want to complete a big project on your dream list!? Let me know below, I’d love to hear!
