"clouds have rolled away and the sun peeps through"

Yesterday I had my first blogger meet up!! I met with the lovely C in VA! We met for pumpkin spice lattes of course! We have been e-mailing back and forth all summer, and it turns out we both go to the same school. How crazy is that? She is such a nice girl; I felt like we were already great friends! While we were talking I found out about her super cute etsy site with the cutest name: Grayson Saige. Her site has preppy and nautical gifts and accessories and she makes them all herself! I wish I was that talented. Here are some of my favorites from Grayson Saige:Pink Lilly Heart Stationary
Palm Beach Preppy Sand Dollar

How can you not love all of these colorful, fun items?! I think that the Palm Beach Preppy Sand Dollar would be SO perfect to give to to someone with a beach themed room or a house at the beach during Christmas time. I can't wait to have another coffee date with C in VA and learn about her newest creations!

Also, this weekend there is a reason to shop until you drop: all of the labor day sales! I am especially excited for Tucker Blaire's flip-flop sale. They are offering a 20% discount on any flip-flops purchased during Labor Day weekend after entering the discount code "LABORDAY". What a great deal! I am especially lusting over the Nautical flag flip flops. I would love love love to wear them at my lake house and around campus to show off my super cute and comfortable flip flops.

Another awesome thing I need to tell you all about is Michael Buble's new single (released August 24). It's called "Haven't Met You Yet". You can buy it on iTunes for $1.29 (anyone else peeved about the price increase?!) The full album entitled "Crazy Love" is due out October 9! I cannot wait to get the entire album. If it is offered for pre-order, I definnitely be doing that! Is anyone else excited for MB's new album?

Also, show off your dorm week starts next week so this weekend, anyone who still wants to have their dorm room featured in my dorm special, e-mail me at with a picture and why your dorm or apartment is so great! I can't wait to see all of the pictures and hear about how you made your space personal!

I hope you all have a great labor day weekend! I can't wait to read all about your fun plans!

Tucker Blair flip flops are the cutest!

Also, I didn't even know about the iTunes price increase and that does annoy me. I know it's only 30 cents, but it just seems like so much more than .99!

Have a great Labor Day!
