LOVISHLY | style

I love brands that create beautiful products -- especially fashion. And when a brand has a greater purpose than just fashion? That is the best

This is why I just adore Lovishly: love lavishly, give extravagantly. Founded by a mama to 9 children (5 adopted) who wants to change the world. It is a project that was created to educate and empower girls (oh my heart!) The Lovishly website reads: Our goal is to educate girls on hard issues and empower girls by giving them the ability to give back all while reminding them and encouraging them with truth.   

Lovishly Co. created the most beautiful handcrafted necklaces. What's even better? They choose various non-profits that share their values and mission and donate 15% of their sales. How amazing is that?

 I LOVE this shop and the heart behind it. Please check it out, sisters -- it is the perfect place to shop for Christmas presents for your mamas, sisters, and friends! As a bride-to-be, I've got my eye on a few necklaces that would be perfect to gift to my bridesmaids!! They have a women's AND a girl's collection, so you can also pick up gifts for the little gals in your life!

Lovishly sent me the loveliest necklace and I modeled it for y'all along with a fun outfit I wanted to share (details below!) I love the lyrics on the necklace I got -- from one of my favorite worship songs. And, it is so well-made. I encourage you ladies to check out this beautiful shop and follow them on their social media:

OUR DISNEYLAND DAY | daniel's 27th birthday celebration + mazda6 i grand touring review

Engagement and falling in love and life craziness pushed my regular blogging schedule somewhat to the backseat this past summer. Not now! This autumn I am back and so thrilled to be here again on an almost-daily basis with you, my precious friends! And I am excited to (finally) catch up on sharing some of my highlights with Cowboy through 2014. Starting today with sharing his birthday celebration back in August -- we spent a magical, whirlwind day at Disneyland. Perfect weather, delicious food, short ride wait times, sweet treats, and laughter filled our day. Such a sweet blessing and I think Daniel enjoyed his birthday... I loved celebrating him! I have spent several of my birthdays and even my high school graduation at Disney as I'm a born and raised California gal, and so it's SUPER fun showing off one of CA's most fabulous attractions to my Oklahoma man. Thanks for the memories, Disneyland! 
And here he is -- sitting in the same exact little nook in front of Sleeping Beauty's Castle --where he said "I love you" to me for the first time ever, 3 months before, and I said it back.
A perfectly magical birthday for my wonderful man!


Thank you to Drive STI -- the awesome company I work with who so kindly let us drive and review a (gorgeous) 2015 Mazda6 i Grand Touring, just for our fun birthday celebration out! (SUCH a dreamy vehicle.)
We sooo enjoyed driving this beautiful, new vehicle. And look how pretty the red color is! It's called "Soul Red." The awesome people at Drive STI purposefully chose this red shade for me because "it looks like Disneyland!" -- just my kinda thinking!

Some of my personal favorite features of 2015 Mazda6 i Grand Touring:

  • Black leather interior
  • Leather-trimmed sport seats (so comfortable!)
  • Heated front seats (I'm a total wimp when it comes to colder weather, so this was right up my alley!)
  • Power moonroof
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • 5.8" Touchscreen Display
  • Auto-dimming driver side mirrors
  • Bluetooth hands-free phone/audio
  • Rearview camera (such a nice safety feature) 
  • USB Audio input and HD radio
  • 184 Horsepower, 185 LB-FT Torque
  • 32 miles per gallon gas mileage (we were truly impressed by how little we had to fill up. Incredible gas mileage!)
  • Advanced keyless entry system60/40 split fold-down rear seat (so much room.)

My Experience + Thoughts: 
I absolutely loved driving this vehicle (and so did Daniel!) It was totally luxury, got amazing gas mileage, drove so smoothly, had such a beautiful, sleek look, and was one of the most comfortable vehicles I have ever driven in. It's roomy, affordable, high quality, practical, and just gorgeous inside and out. I HIGHLY recommend it and would definitely consider purchasing this car. I honestly encourage you to check it out! 

Thank you again, Drive STI! 

The retail price of this vehicle is: $33,345

Disclaimer: I received the product in this post for free to review, but my opinions shared are always 100% honest and my own.

I want to start being more purposeful about memorizing and focusing on Scripture, 

so I thought I'd share these encouraging prints with you, too. 
This one is perfect for getting our hearts right for the holiday and Thanksgiving season coming up.  


Love you + you + you.
