I'm sharing my little 4th of July table set up. I love celebrating holidays and getting my house festive, so I was excited to find all these goodies at Marshalls. With the weather being so warm, entertaining outside is a must! We often have dinner or drinks outside, so I wanted to decorate our outdoor space for the 4th! The best part is that most of these items are able to be used year round. The chalkboard mason jars and fruit bowls are my favorite- so cute! I made these layered drinks that I saw on Pinterest, they look pretty but taste like a melted slurp...which isn't necessarily a bad thing!

Are you doing anything special for The 4th?

Enjoy your holiday and thank you for reading!

 When Marshalls told myself and the other #projectfab bloggers about their idea for the FAB Traveling Bag, we were all thrilled. Each of us had/have this amazing bag for 2 weeks and we document where we take it. We all live in different parts of the country, so it's been a blast seeing it travel around. I'm the only blogger in Northern California, so my landmark was a no brainer - The Golden Gate Bridge! And it wouldn't be a quintessential San Francisco post without that thick blanket of fog. Within 5 minutes of taking these, the bridge, ocean, and hills nearby had disappeared! So.much.fog. 

I loved my time with the bag and had the hardest time sending it to the next gal! It is such an amazing bag and I will be scouring the stores until I find it. It was by the brand Catherine Malandrino and had buttery soft leather, beautiful gold accents, and so many spacious pockets inside. I assumed it was in the hundreds and found the bag details at the bottom of my box. Guys, $49.99! Insane! After seeing that price I decided I will definitely scoop this bag up if I see it at Marshalls, maybe in every color ;)

Want to see where it heads next? Check out the hashtag #FABTravelingBag on social media to see it's whereabouts. You can also see its geolocation on Pinterest- how cool is that?!

My last two outfits for my clearance challenge incorporated bright colors for a festive outfit and the other featured soft neutrals for every day wear. 
As I mentioned in my previous post, I was challenge to shop the sale rack and feature clearance looks. I'm sure if I didn't mention this challenge it would seem like a regular post- which I love because not only does Marshalls carry great designer items and on trend pieces,  but even their clearance rack is filled with amazing items. 

I'm never disappointed when I leave, especially after finding amazing items like these!

This year has flown by, can you believe its already half-way over! I don't know about you mama's out there but Father's Day snuck up on me. With Uriah being so young, it's really my job to find Nick a gift. We love enjoying the outdoors and playing bocce, so Uriah and I put together a gift basket for a afternoon of bocce. 




We picked out a designer tote ($19.99), a floral, but still masculine button-up ($19.99), a bocce ball set ($24.99),  blue-tooth speakers ($14.99), a portable phone charger ($12.99) and some yummy candies ($2.99). This is something that I know he will enjoy and we can also enjoy as a family. Plus, it was all so affordable! If Father's Day snuck up on you too, head out to Marshalls to get the Dads in your life a gift. From luggage and tech accessories to traditional gifts like wallets and ties- they have you covered! You can shop with confidence knowing you will get the gifts you need, while staying in budget. You might even have some money left for that cute blouse ;)
