DIY Movie Night Gift Basket

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #ShareYourSummer #CollectiveBias

So Memorial Day weekend every year my Dad's Motorcycle Club holds a charity ride for the Folds of Honor Foundation. They organize a huge ride, and after they all meet up for lunch and hold a raffle and auction for those participating. It has been a fantastic way to remember all those Veterans and Soldiers that sacrifice so much for our country. Thank you Dad for working so hard in organizing this amazing event. You earned yourself a cold Coca Cola!

Share a coke with someone you love. Find your name or their name here.

This year I wanted to put together a "Movie Night" basket to raffle off. I wanted to incorporate movie night necessities. Popcorn, Coke, Candy, and of course a movie gift card. This was really easy, inexpensive and will work for any person of any age. 

Shopping List: ( I got all my stuff at Walmart)
Cherry Coke ( 2 Liter )
Boxed Candy
6 Pack Diet Coke
6 Pack Coke
6 Pack glass coke
Fandango Gift Card
Coke Bowl

Step 1:

First I lay out all my supplies. I like to see what I have so I can start to get an idea on how to arrange it.

Step 2:

Take bottles and cans out of their packaging for easier packing. It also looks better when everything is all mixed and placed around. This is where you will spend most of your time. Just play with around with different placements.

Step 3:

Wrap up the gift. I like to use clear shrink wrap, but you can use whatever wrap you have. I then finished it off with a ribbon. 

 There are so many fun ways to personalize and make a gift basket fun. Check out and share your ideas here.

What are you looking forward to this summer? Who would you like to share a coke with? I would love to hear all your fun ideas!

You can find the coke used in this tutorial at your local Walmart.

Coral Floral

I had an amazing Birthday Tuesday. Thank you for all your sweet wishes!

I love loose blouses. They are so flattering, so comfortable and just fun to wear. Coraly colors as you know are one of my favorite colors to wear. You can pair it with so many colors. It is always key to have pieces you can interchange. This top would also look really cute with white trousers, or a cute pencil skirt. Thank you Blake for this awesome Birthday gift.

How do you guys like to style fun flirty tops?

Pattern Play

I hope you guys all had a great long weekend. I sure enjoy the weekends to hang out with my favorite people. We got to celebrate my birthday and play. I seriously have the best family ever. 

So lately I have been living in skirts. They are easy to throw on, easy to style and wear. Aria has been high energy lately so it has been a fun task getting ready and getting out the door. I love mixing patterns. This skirt has been so fun to style. I can do so much with it. Yellow is a great piece to add to your closet. It transitions through the seasons well, it can be paired with so many colors. Same goes for a black polka dot top. You can do so much with these two pieces together and with other pieces.

Flag Tee

I love celebrating Memorial Day. What a great day to remember all those that sacrifice and have sacrificed for our country. I have so much love and gratitude to the service men and women and their families. So I would love to take this time to thank them for all that they do. If you see a service man or woman make sure to thank them for their service. It is not an easy task. They give up a lot to serve us.

I celebrate Memorial Day by attending the Fallen Patriot Ride my Dad's motorcycle club holds every year. Money raised by this event goes to the Folds of Honor foundation. It is a fun day and a great cause. I enjoy going each year. 

How do you celebrate Memorial Day?

Onto the outfit. 
I love flag tees, tanks and jackets. This is a great top to have not only for Memorial Day but for the Fourth of July as well. I paired this top with a pair of distressed jeans, and a cute pair of sandals. I also grabbed a long chevron necklace. Perfect for a BBQ or weekend get together. Make sure to check out Our World Boutique for some really cute clothes at amazing prices. Make sure to also follow them on Instagram for giveaways, and deals.

Blossom Vox Box

All products were sent to review. All opinions are my own.

I was chosen to receive the Blossom Vox Box from Influenster. This box was quite large and had a lot of really awesome products in it. So lets get started!

Bear Naked: I have tried this granola before. I have always loved it. It is delicious and they have a variety of flavors. Healthy, wholesome and uncomplicated flavors. I buy mine at Target.  #LiveBearNaked.

Beanitos: This is the first time I have even heard of black bean chips. I eat black bean burgers all the time. So I was looking forward to trying them. These are made without corn or wheat. So they are Gluten free and a healthy alternative to a chip. These were actually quite good. The BBQ one was really good but really spicy. You can get them at Target and Amazon. #AllThatinaBagOfChips

Hair Food Root Cleansing Shampoo: This shampoo smells amazing! I love a good cleansing shampoo. I wouldn't suggest it for color treated hair. It will wear your color out faster. It removes product build up, and detoxifies. You can find it on Amazon. #HairFood

Nasoya Pasta Zero Noodles: I will be honest I have not been brave enough to try these noodles yet. I mean the nutrition value of it is awesome. They have only 4 grams of carbs, and 15 calories. But I dunno the packaging is a little weird and kind of creeps me out. You will have to look at it here to see what I am talking about. #NasoyaPastaZero

NYC Color City Proof 24 Hour Eye Shadow: It is easy to apply, creamy and goes on smooth. But it did crease on me. I did with and without primer and it creased and melted on both. I would set it with a shadow to lock it in. The color was ok. It was not for me. #NYCCityProof

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs: I love Sally Hansen products. I have tried the Airbursh legs numerous times. I love it. I grab a light shade and a dark shade and I contour my legs with the different colors. So if I want to define a muscle I use the darker shade. Its exactly like highlighting and contouring your face. I love this stuff. Amazon and Target both carry this. #AirbrushPerfectLegs

Australian Gold Sunscreen: I love the smell of this stuff. And it's a low SPF. I usually just throw it in my purse and apply it right before I go on my afternoon walks. Being fair skinned I really have to watch my sun exposure. #LivetheGoldLife

Tribal Shift Dress Part 2

So the other day I wore this shift dress as a dress. Now I am showing you a way to wear it as a tunic. I styled it with a cute pair of plain black skinnies, a great pair of gladiator sandals and the same jewelry. This would also be really cute paired with some distressed skinny jeans.

How do you guys like to style tunics/shift dresses?

Boohoo was having a great sale on dresses. If you haven't checked them out make sure you do. They have some amazing deals, and really cute clothes.

Tribal Shift Dress Part 1

So summer is around the corner and I will be living in these shift dresses. I love how light weight and cool they are. This one has to be one of my favorites. I love the tribal print. I also love you can wear these as dresses, or tunics. Another way you can wear these is as just a dress and sandals. I would wear a pair of beige biker shorts or spanks on underneath. They can get pretty short and bending over might be an issue. Just a heads up. You could always add a skirt extender if you desired.

What trends are you loving for summer?
