App Alert! Today I LOVE the photo editing app from a blog favorite, A Beautiful Mess!


Filters, fonts and doodles...oh my! Loaded with cuteness in handwritten phrases and squiggles, you can't help but get dreamy flashbacks of when you doodled around the pictures in your high school yearbook. {Sigh.}

Rising super-duper fast to #1 in the iTumes App Store, the app does come with a minimal charge but I didn't blink at the $0.99 and I'm even considering paying for a few of the add-ons they have available.

The interface is easy to use and sharing is a piece of cake. Pull in photos from your camera roll or choose from fun background options (the legal pad is a fave!). You can add, move, resize and change colors every step of the way!

ABM is the perfect way to amp up your Instagram pics. Make sure and #ABeautifulMess as Elsie and Emma love to check out everyone's beautiful mess!

Cake plate obsessed, I fell head over heels for these whimsical numbers by IMM Living via Pure Home.

The horse head was a must-have and CANNOT WAIT to use it! But I do love the display with all of the animals together...so fun that they truly do "take the cake!"

NYC bucket list. Get blow out at DreamDry, the ultimate blow-dry bar co-founded by Rachel Zoe and Robin Moraetes. Check!

As promised, DreamDry wasn't just a salon - it was a destination.

Luxury. Fun. Efficient. I loved every minute of it.



The energy was fabulous. The people stunning. The products smelled divine. And the glass of champagne was just what I needed...it was heaven and the perfect way to start my weekend in the Big Apple.

I loved the excitement my stylist, Steven had when he found out I was from Minnesota and that this was on my to-do list. Loved seeing co-owner, Robin in there in a gorgeous new braid they were testing. Beautiful and SO NICE!

Steven and I quickly bonded over our favorite TV show, Nashville. And while debating over braids or waves as I flipped thru the iPad of styles, we decided to go for Country Music Star hair and pay homage to Connie Britton and Hayden Pantierre. {giggle} For a girl with stick straight hair (and a girl who wished she could sing!?!), this was DREAM hair.

I miss DreamDry already. I smell my Oribe products at home and it brings me back. I can't imagine going to NYC without a stop here again! So much fun, takes less than an hour and doesn't cost an arm and a leg! Already booking my appointment for my next trip in June...and I just may have to go for the braids!

Make every day glamorous.

I am known to always be wearing arm candy in all shapes and colors but I instantly fell in love with Dillon Rogers' Kid's Signature Leather Bracelets and immediately added it to my collection. A definite must-have.

What a great piece that is totally unique and customizable with over 18 colors of leather and featuring the signatures of your kids (or anyone else for that matter?!) Plus they felt like rock stars giving me their autograph! The process is super simple and makes the perfect gift!

See more on these bracelets and others from Dillon Rogers here.

fidelis mn market bag

I saw my friend's MN Market Bag from the Fidelis Co. and was literally giddy. Tote-obsessed, I couldn't stop wondering why had I not seen this before?!? And then to find out that they are a local company with a super strong purpose on providing quality tools we carry and things we use...I had to share!

This market bag had me at the rivets, the leather and the jute. It is stunning AND practical - and I can never resist a shout out to the Land of 10,000 Lakes.


All of the Fidelis Co. products are BEAUTIFUL and made right. From the Field Notebook to the hand painted Canoe Paddle (truly a piece of art) to the Riggers Belt, they all ooze craftsmanship anyone would be proud to own.
