Show and Tell Tuesday + Favorite Vacation

Show and Tell - IG GraphicI’m linking up with Andrea for Show and Tell Tuesdays! Today, we’re talking all about our favorite vacations! I have been extremely blessed with the opportunity to go on a lot of vacations that were nothing short of amazing. One of my all time favorite vacations though was a girls trip in the midst of studying abroad in Greece. I talk about Greece like it’s my job but I don’t technically consider it a vacation since I lived there. 😉 A few weeks after arriving in Greece, Mace and I decided to go to the fashion capital of the world: Milan, Italy. We were instantly in awe with all it had to offer. The architecture, language, shopping, food and atmosphere were incredible and we had every intention of soaking up every inch!We ate, drank, shopped, painted, got pampered, and loved life. We made friends, learned about life in Milan and loved every second of it. It is consistently a vacation that appears in my memory when I think of a favorite and I am so, so thankful!

PinkBlush + Giveaway

PinkBlush: Outfit at stephanie-spring.com You know that dress? The one that is delivered to your doorstep, you try it on, you instantly fall in love and think of 100 different events you will wear it to? Yeah, that one. 🙂 Between summer, bridal and baby showers, wineries, weddings, and beach trips, my mind went crazy about all of the places this dress would be perfect for. It’s simple and sweet. Complimentary, yet not too “over the top.” It’s a win all around and when your hubby and you both like it, I count it as a double win. 😉 I also love it in yellow, here!PinkBlush: Outfit at stephanie-spring.com  I paired it with all of the accessories below!

Friday Favorites

This week was c-r-a-z-y but you can always find me linking up with Erika, Narci, and Andrea for my Friday Favorites. 😉



I’ve heard coconut oil is a great make-up remover but was so hesitant to try it. On Monday I bit the bullet and tried it! OH MY WORD! It works like a charm, smells amazing (coconut is one of my favorite smells), and is all natural. Best of all, I got a massive jar at Costco for my homemade granola and now have multiple purposes for it. You can’t beat the price or the result!

Two.A friend had mentioned how great this book is! Within one click I ordered it, and two days later it was at my door. Thanks Amazon prime. 😉 I can’t wait to read it!


Rompers galore! You can read my entire post here! They are a favorite.


A had a hair appointment that was way overdue. It’s the little things. 🙂

Five.How cute is this dress?! I’m teaming up with Pink Blush on Monday to share some of my favorites with you! Plus, there’s a giveaway so be sure to check back! 😉

I hope you’re Friday is quick and lovely!

The end of the school year is quickly approaching (T-10 days, but who’s counting?!) 😉 I love when students pay attention to my favorites things throughout the year: my favorite color, food, that I’m a coffee drinker, etc. Gifts are by NO means expected but it sure does make me go into giddy school-girl mode when students arrive with a bag of goodies. It’s thoughtful and oh so sweet! These are things I hope to give back to my kid’s teachers someday. Remember how far a simple gift can go! Happy Thursday!
