Basic Invite- the most customizable & easiest way to create invitations

spring jumpsuit

It’s finally getting warmer in Minnesota. Crossing my fingers that it stays like this because we literally had a blizzard in the middle of April last weekend; it was wild. I read a funny meme on Facebook saying, “Spring isn’t here yet cause my summer body isn’t ready.” Lol, trrruuuuu! But as we move along the year with hopes of warmer weather, it’s getting closer to graduations and weddings season! Getting invitations for spring and summer events are exciting because you get to spend time with friends and family while enjoying the nice weather.

Four reasons Basic Invite is one of the best:

  • Almost unlimited colors- Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design, you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different colors options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. This is what sets Basic Invite apart from almost any other online stationery company.
  • Custom samples- Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order.
  • Color of envelopes- With Basic Invite, customers can choose from over 40 different envelope colors to make their invitation stand out even before it’s opened. All envelopes are peel and seel and have the options to have designs on the liner.
  • Address capturing service- Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or other forms of social media to request their friends and family’s addresses which then will be stored in the customer’s account and can be selected during the design process.

And the best, Basic Invite is now offering a 15% discount off your entire purchase with coupon code: 15FF51

Thank you Basic Invite for this opportunity!

SHOP MY CLOSET: Jacket Edition

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

My winters went from 0 to a hunnid real quick when I moved to Minnesota from North Carolina about 6 years ago. It does snow a little in NC, but it’s nothing compared to the amount of snow in MN. I remember my first winter in Minnesota and I saw everyone with ice scrapers and snow shovels in the trunk of their cars. And I discovered that there was such a thing like automatic car starters, like breh, WHAT?! Lol. Definitely a climate shock for me. Why do people even still live here? But then again for the past 6 years, I’ve asked myself the same thing. I think I kind of got used it even though I still complain about the weather every winter. >,<

Anyways, my jacket collection has grown throughout the years. You can never have too many winter coats, at least not where it snows a lot like here in Minnesota. Below is my jacket collection. Well, part of it anyways. And the best part? You can shop all these exact same jackets here on my Poshmark and then some. If you don’t know what Poshmark is, it’s basically a community of awesome people! 🙂 But really, Poshmark is a great website and app where millions of users buy, sell, and trade fashion and other things. Disclaimer: This blog post is not sponsored by Poshmark. I honestly just like to use Poshmark to sell my clothing items that are still in good condition. Unfortunately, Poshmark is not International and only for the U.S. Click on the links to be directed to the jacket for purchasing and more info. I recommend downloading the app because you can make me offers and such versus using the website. Happy shopping!

Athleisure

ath.lei.sure /aTH(e)’leZHer/ noun: casual, comfortable clothing designed to be suitable for both exercise and everyday wear; athletic and leisure.

Have you ever seen people walk around where ever you are either at school, shopping, movies, bowling, brunch, etc, looking like they just semi got back from the gym? Guilty! I’m one of those people. Nothing screams comfy more than a good pair of athletic leggings. Comfy & stylish? Yasss. I love incorporating gym clothes, especially leggings, into my style. Ends up looking like I put a lot of work into my outfit, but really it’s so effortless. Plus, it saves me money from buying clothes just for the gym…when I do go. ;p

A little statistics here, the trend boomed in 2016 and according to The Wall Street Journal, the market is estimated to grow by 30% by 2020.

What’s your take on ‘gym‘ clothes trending in the fashion world for everyday wear?
