Come With Me to the Southern Women’s Show!

What’s the Southern Women’s show eh?

It’s a convention held every year in Charlotte, NC that showcases local boutiques, high-end makeup brands, home décor, food, and tons more!

It’s a tradition that my mom and I go every year, and this year I brought my friends Kristen and Taylor!

SWS6

I was honestly surprised at how good it was this year- I mean, it was AWESOME!

I got a lot of stuff…but that’s for the next post ^_^!

Anyway let’s take a look inside shall we?

SWS1

It’s basically hundreds of booths arranged in columns, like an indoor festival.

While we were waiting for the fashion show…

SWS3

They decided to play bingo and Taylor won!

SWS5

She won a free pair of flats from Flat out Heels! I’m glad she got it instead of me because they wouldn’t have had my size…I wear a 2 in kids so….

And she got her brows filled in for the first time by this nice lady. She didn’t even know people did that XD!

SWS8

Here’s us waiting for the fashion show…lollygagging around and eating free candy

SWS7 SWS9

aren’t we just adorbs?

And there was this booth for Broadway Nails, and they were giving everyone free manicures! They’re fake nails so you could pick out which ones you wanted (we took about 30 sets combined home with us ;D) and they put a set on for you! I got white with a purple and black gothic style one for accents.

SWS11

And we had lunch at Nothing but Noodles…  I had too much fun with the chopsticks!

SWS4

And that’s it! I’ll show you guys everything I got in my next post so stay tuned, you wont want to miss it I promise!

Hope you enjoyed going to the show with me! If you’re in the area, it’s going to be there tomorrow! I highly recommend going 🙂

See you guys soon!

 

 

 

 

 

Last Day in Sedona! Hike, OOTD and BowsByTroy!

Good morning my blossoms, let me tell you a story.
Once upon a time, a little girl headed off on a hike. She was excited; her family told her it would be an easy, short journey. She arrived at the site.

The walk started well, it was a level, partly shaded trail that winded along the mountain. Soon, the trail became rocky, and the little girl had to use all of her strength to scale the incline. Her heart was pounding, she looked up and saw how high the rock went up to.

There were people up there! She wanted to go up there too, what a wonderful photo op it would be! So with a heave and a sigh the girl made her way up to the very top! She then commenced to take many pictures!

For her OOTD, the girl wore a very flowy blue tank from JCP and some very comfortable green lace shorts from Charlotte Russe! Her favorite part of her outfit though was the big white bow in her hair!

It was made by a wonderful and talented friend of hers named Troy! He started making these custom cheer-style bows and sells them for a great low price! They are of great quality, and like I said, he makes them to order! Anything you want, he can do it!

Check out his instagram @tuhroyconn to order or email him at troymconn1@live.com!
And don’t forget to follow me on instagram as well! @clairedelune1113
Hope you all have a blessed happy day!

Arizona Day 5! Slide Rock and OOTD!

The wifi’s back! *angels singing from the clouds*

It’s a day late, but here’s my day 5 of vacation! We went to Slide Rock Park, a stream in the middle of two cliff faces that deposited into a deeper pool.

It was so pretty here! Hot but pretty!

I felt like Dora the Explorer; braving slippery rocks, ice cold water, big jumps and all that! I had so much fun!

If you ever go there, see if you can find this where the deep pool starts!

Now onto the OOTD from later that day!
