Sparkle and Shine





(Images via 1, 2, 3)

Hello, everyone! Welcome back from the long weekend!

For me, the last few days consisted of planting flowers and sprucing up the outside of my house, shopping around for a few things for the inside of the house (will share pictures very soon), and spending some much-needed time with my family. All in all, it was the most perfect holiday weekend one could ask for.

I was inspired by the sparkly nature of the photos above for today's post. One of my favorite recent finds is Society Social, created by Roxy of My Cup of Te. The SS motto, "live sparkly," inspired me to snap a few photos of some favorite sparklies in my own life.

Enjoy!

The purse is beautiful. The light pinkish hue reminds me of a tulip in the garden.
