They sell these unique temporary tattoos that would be such a good gift for that quirky friend that we all have or for the friend that has everything. Here are some of my favorites this time around…

etsy obsessed

Since I’ve moved into my new apartment in the Queen City, I have found myself craving decorations from the popular craft-sharing site Etsy. There is just something so unique about purchasing something from a real person that you can interact with during your transaction. I thought I’d share some of my most recent favorites on the site. Enjoy!

What I wore them with…


I am proud to say I am a new Crocs owner! I never expected to be one of “those” people, but I saw these in Belk and instantly fell for them. They look nice enough to wear to work, but are Crocs material so you can wear them in the rain or to the beach/pool too. They are going to be perfect for our cruise next week. Plus they are only $34.99…..nice.
