Corner News-May 21, 2016

Hello everyone.  Apologies for no blog post yesterday.  I was studying for finals and it completely slipped my mind.

So…anyway.  Onto the corner news!

I am done with finals!  Hooray!  I can now spend the entire summer working and working on blog posts and getting rid of my terrible farmer’s tan.  Yeah!

And I am having another Posh Party tomorrow!  I’m having a lot of friends over and we are going to have a nice little get together.  Hopefully I can get more stuff posted and ready to sell.  I am excited to have friends over to just have fun and hang out.  It will be nice and relaxing to have people over.

So, that’s what has been and will be happening.  I hope that you all have a great weekend and I will post more about the party on Friday!

Fabulous Finds and Fashions 5/18/16

Fabulous Finds and Fashions 2

Hello! I am back today with some fabulous finds, but no fashions. I found some great stuff at Goodwill this time, and decent prices.

This pillow was from Target this past winter and it was marked at $3.99. I have been seeing them lately for $9-12 at Goodwill, so this one was a good deal. I will put it away for next winter.

I loved the scrolling and design of this little plate. I put it in Lauren’s room so she can set her water bottle on it and other little items when she stays over.

Aren’t these silver pieces great! The large bowl was half off because it had a blue tag. I believe it was $2.00 and the little bowls were .99 cents each. Can’t wait to use these on my table!

My last find was this bunch of faux pussy-willows. I only paid $1.99 for the bunch.

I’d say this was a pretty successful shopping trip! Thanks for stopping by!

The Great State Of Hawaii-Part 3

Happy Monday everyone! Wait! Is there such a thing?! Why do Mondays always seem to be a hard day? It’s so difficult to get back into the routine of school again, especially this close to the end. My preschoolers are definitely feeling it too! At least we can go outside and let them run off some energy. We have 3 weeks left and then we get a much needed break. Yay!!

Since I was thinking about vacation, I decided to show a few (!) more of my Hawaii pictures. I realized I hadn’t done any for awhile. I’m in the midst of some projects, but nothing is complete yet, so this will help fill the gap. Plus it’s nice to dream again!! Here is Part 1 and Part 2 if you missed them.

One of our free mornings, we decided to check out the aquarium. I decided I saw more of a variety of fish here than I did when we snorkeled, and this was much easier! I don’t remember all the names of the fish, but it’s so relaxing just to look at them and imagine the water and waves.

We probably all know these fish from Finding Nemo-Clown Fish! Did you know that Finding Dory is coming out next month? Can’t wait!

This little blue guy looked so pretty in front of the coral.

Yes, those are bright orange teeth on this fellow! I don’t think I would want to meet him underwater!

A beautiful purple sea urchin.

Jellyfish are just so cool to watch as they float in the water. Obviously, this is an Upside Down Jellyfish.

I love starfish and use them all over my house to decorate. I loved how these were all in a row.

More jellyfish!

Well, hello grumpy!

I love to watch the seahorses too. The way they use their tail to hang onto the plants is so cool!

This guy just stayed in one spot, upright, in the water. He would spin in slow circles around and around.

Naptime!

After the aquarium we met up with Haley and a couple of her friends for lunch at the famous Duke’s restaurant. This was named for the Duke Kahanamoku, who is famous for making the sport of surfing so popular. We had some really good food and it was fun to meet up with the kids and find out about what they had been doing too.

We even managed to get a family photo.

No Post Today…Sorry

Hey everyone!  I have been extremely busy with school and work that I don’t have anything prepared for you guys.  I have finals coming up next week, which makes me happy!  But that also means that my blogs will be back on track and you shouldn’t have many more of these “Sorry, no post today” blogs.

So, sorry, again.  But we will be back tomorrow with a regular post.  Hope you all have a good day!

Fabulous Finds and Fashion-Floral Ruffled Tank Top

Hello!  Welcome!  I hope that you are all having a great week so far and I hope that you are all looking forward to the plans that you have in store for the weekend.

So, this week, I didn’t find anything interesting.  But, I did rediscover a tank top that I had hanging in the closet.  I purchased the top from Maurices in January of 2015, and it has been extremely cute.  But, it has been very hard to wear because it is long and flowy.

So I took this opportunity to find some new outfits to wear with the shirt.

1. Tank Top and Shorts

Look 1

And here is the shirt.  You might be able to tell how it can be a little hard to wear.  I added a pair of Torrid denim shorts and a pair of gold Vera Wang flip flops to finish the look.  It is perfect for any summer day and perfect to keep cool.

2. Tank Top and Pink Capris

Look 2

I have owned this pair of pink capris for quite a few years.  They are Faded Glory and I bought them from Walmart for Easter.  They are so comfy and they look good with so many different shirts.  I added a pair of Mossimo blingy nude flats to finish off the look.

3. Tank Top, Lace Cover Up, and Jean Capris

Look 3

So, I forgot that I had this lace cover up in my closet.  It looks really good over the tank top.  I tied it in the front because it didn’t look good hanging loose in the front.  I added a pair of jean capris and pink floral Vera Wang flip flops to finish off the look.

I am very happy with my new outfit choices.  I can’t wait to wear them out to school or church or even shopping.  I hope that you like my new outfits, and I can’t wait to see you on Friday!
