Happy Saturday, friend! I’ve recently become addicted to something and I feel like if I just get it out there, out in the open, I’ll feel soooo much better.
Ok, here it goes.
I’m addicted to Amazon. 🙈
I know you’re not judging me, right?! Are you as addicted as I am? Yep, I figured you were. After seeing some amazing, budget-friendly Amazon Fashion pieces from a fellow IGer, I knew I need to take the plunge and buy a few pieces to see both how fit is and quality of pieces. They all came in a few days ago and I was pleasantly surprised at how well they’re made for the price points. I’ll share the other pieces I snagged on this coming Tuesday’s post but today I wanted to show off my favorite piece, this adorable denim romper
I knew as soon as I put it on that it would be my husband’s new favorite outfit of mine. HAHAHA!  I am 5’3′ and ordered a size small. It does fit very true-to-size but note that it is quite short. So short as in I won’t be doing any bending over in it, if you know what I mean, but for only $25, I absolutely LOVE it. I paired it with my brand new Steve Madden wedges and leather necklace for a cute and casual everyday look.

Today I wanted to chat with you about my new favorite website, Poshmark. I have always been a bargain hunter and love finding deals at TJ Maxx, Marshalls, eBay, and all my local thrift shops. eBay has been a love of mine since it started and it’s been my go-to place to grab great deals on all my favorite designer clothes, but when my cousin Angela Lanter introduced me to Poshmark, I was hooked! I’ve been finding INCREDIBLE deals on everything from my beloved Lilly Pulitzer to Dooney & Bourke purses. Let me share my Poshmark tips with you!

I’ve been able to snag some amazing deals through Poshmark (and sell some things to help my bank account out) so today I thought I would share some of my favorite tips and tricks to finding the best deals on the site!

1.Using the app makes finding and purchasing 100 times easier than using the desktop.

2. If you’re on a budget, use filters when searching. It’s nice to narrow down price limits so you can make sure to not overspend. I always love to search for items under $25.

3. Always “like” an item that you want to keep your eye on, not only to save it so you can keep checking it, BUT sellers also see that you’ve liked it and may offer you an additional discount on both the item and shipping! It doesn’t hurt to go ahead and hit that “bundle” button while you’re at it. 😉
4. Always negotiate! You’re allowed to put in an offer on any item that you’re interested in, which is GREAT! Just be kind though. A seller is more likely to work with you if you’re not trying to take advantage.

5. Be patient. This is a hard one for me because I have a real fear of missing a good deal. If the item you’ve got your eye on doesn’t have a lot of likes or comments, the seller may drop the price, and then you can negotiate it a little further!

If you have any other tips and tricks you use to score great deals on Poshmark, I would love to know them! Drop them in the comments below!

Hello Love!
Mom life is hard y’all.
I always thought that the kids early stages of life would be the hardest but this growing up stuff is for the birds.  Now, don’t get me wrong, the days of diaper bags and double strollers with a “leash” backpack for the oldest was by no means a piece of cake, but running the kids here and there and the feeding them and homework and playdates and practices and feeding them and the constant buying of new shoes and the feeding them…..ok, you get the picture.
Then there are these times.  The times when we get to stop and just love on them and treat them.  These kiddos have been raised to cherish all the things, big and little.   There’s no need to constantly buy them the newest gadget or load the playroom full of crap.  A simple trip to get a sno cone is sometimes all that is needed.
We have a few sno cone shops in our little town but this one is by far our favorite.  The shaved ice is simply dreamy.   It’s incredibly smooth and soft and i’ve never had anything like it.  I am 100% a “tiger’s blood” fan but my kids change it up every time we go.  Kiwi, bubble gum, wild thing (whatever that is); it’s always something new for them.
Do you have a favorite shaved ice flavor that i need to try?  Do you have a Pelican’s Snoballs near you?

Daytona Beach is my FAVORITE!

Daytona Beach is my FAVORITE! 150 150 Jenn Pennell

Hello Love!
A few weeks ago we ventured to our favorite place, Daytona Beach after a few days spent at Disney World.  After spending 4 days at the parks, we needed a little sand between our toes and salt water in our hair.  I hadn’t worn my Delia shift dress that I bought at the semi-annual Lilly Pulitzer sale, so I knew I had to wear it to the beach!

Hello Love!
I’m such a sucker for a great scarf and when my dear friend Kim created this skinny scarf beauty, I HAD TO HAVE ONE!
I was on my way out to run errands when I got it in the mail.  It didn’t match what I was wearing but it was CRAZY adorable on Audrey!  I mean, right?!
I’ll definitely be styling this scarf a lot!

Hello Love!
14 years ago I graduated from collage and honestly, I can’t remember most of it! 😂 Not because I was partying or any of that but because I was busting my butt to finish (Hello, wedding bells!). I had went to a community college for 2 years and transferred to Lee University the fall of 2002. I took a full 18 hours every semester and a few summer courses to finish my Bachelor’s degree in two years.  I graduated in 2004 with a major in Business Administration and a minor in Bible and was just classes shy of a major in Computer Information Systems…man, I should have finished that.  I worked two jobs while in school too but my full-time focus was my now-husband, because you know, love. 💕
I took my kiddos on a walk around this beautiful campus yesterday and I can’t believe how beautiful it is. Where did you attend college and what was your major?

Marleylilly at the ball park

Hello Love!
It hasn’t happened every day but Spring is slowly starting to make it’s way to the Tennessee Valley!
FINALLY!
We’ve had good days and we’ve had some pretty crappy days. Jim Cantore from the weather channel said yesterday he thinks that eat of the Rockies will be in pretty good shape from now on and that is perfectly fine with me! I will make sure to not complain about those hot summer months! I’d much rather have hot than cold!
Baseball season has started for us and I adore this new lightweight tunic I got from Marleylilly! The fabric is so silky and soft with the perfect length to cover your hiney! I would be adorable with leggings or slightly tucked in the front like I’m wearing here with my shorts. It’s available in 9 different colors and I’m wearing the navy with a white monogram.
