Since this is the last Friday of the month, you know what that means...Friday favorites! Here are some of my favorite things this month. Check it out! 

Favorites of the Month

1. Myrtle Beach [vacation

This month I made my way to the beach for the first time this summer. I joined my roommates family trip...so it was a mix of family, fun and foolish (the good kind). It's been some years since I visited Myrtle and so much has changed! So many new hotels and beach bars (shoutout to being legal!). 

I appreciated pool days, seafood buffets and spending an entire day on the beach with some mimosas and sangria (tip: bring a pitcher of your favorite thirst quenching to enjoy your day on the sand).

2. Love [emotion]

This month was the long awaited union of my best friend and the love of her life. On June 21, I along with my 3 best friends were reunited to celebrate love. The wedding was a perfect reflection of how powerful and beautiful love truly is. Celebrating this special moment with my friends of more than 10 years was magical. Growing up, you envision special moments that you will share with your friends and this wedding brought tears to my eyes reflecting on all the moments we've shared over the years - this wedding now being another adventure added to our list. 

Congratulations again to Mr. & Mrs. Woodall - so blessed to be a part of such a special day.

3. Hiking at Crowder's Mountain  [activity]

In 2016, I hiked Crowder's Mountain for the first time. Talk about challenging, but ultimately rewarding. Two years later and I'm back again and ready for the challenge again (ps, I'm writing this the night before...let's see if I survive).

12 hours later. I survived y'all! 3.6 miles later...and I'm tired, but glad I enjoyed this time with my best friends! We arrived this morning at 7:30 a.m. and make it back to our cars by 9:30 a.m. Moments like this make me refresh and  appreciate my blessings even more. Sometimes nature, the quiet and stillness of God's creation is all you need. And this is what I needed.

4. Pretty Little Thing [brand]

This month I found out about Pretty Little Thing. If you have heard of this brand before....I'm angry at you for not sharing. And, if you haven't heard about this brand...check it our here. This women fashion clothing brand is the perfect brand...here are reasons why I love it. 

  • Sale. They've always had a sale when I've ventured to the website.

  • Size. The brand is size inclusive and provides fashion forward styles for women of all shapes and sizes.

  • Speed. Not only did I get my clothes quickly, but the quick response I received when I thought I was missing some pieces was phenomenal.

I'll be doing a fashion haul soon of all of my new clothes featuring some pieces from Pretty Little Thing, so stay tuned!
