Kicking off Memorial Day Weekend tomorrow with Lilly Pulitzer

As a Jersey girl, Memorial Day Weekend is as much of a holiday as Christmas or Thanksgiving. We set our apps to countdown to MDW, buy bathing suits months in advance, and load up on the hot dogs and hamburgers for the BBQs.

And tomorrow, it’s finally here! Sorority queen Lilly Pulitzer is also getting in on the summer fun. From May 27th to May 30th, gifts are included with every purchase!

Spend $200 and receive a fringe bracelet set, $500 for an oversized beach towel set, $800 for a beach umbrella, $1,200 for a beach chair set, and $3,000 for a hammock. Not looking to spend too much money because you haven’t gotten your first summer paycheck yet? No worries, because with any purchase, you receive a beach ball. With each monetary amount spent, you get not only the gift within the current limit you reached- but the one before. So say you spent $600, you’ll receive the beach towel set, the bracelet set, and the free beach ball. How awesome!!

Now this isn’t my first Lily sale, so I’ve learned some tricks. My biggest secret – load your tote up the night before. That way, as soon as you wake up tomorrow, you can check out! You won’t need to waste time searching for what you want to buy or going back through the website to search for it if it already in your online tote.

To help you decide what you want to add to your tote, here are my top five picks from Lily’s newest arrivals.

My Monday Musts

Happy Monday, readers!

I hope all of you are having a happy Monday, unlike myself. I’m having a rather unhappy Monday. Over this past weekend, I managed to fall and damage my knee. My mom had to come, on her birthday, to pick me up at school and take me to the Emergency Room. I am now home in New Jersey, waiting for an orthopedist appointment to see if there is any further damage than what the hospital said. Meanwhile, I’m stuck in a rather unfashionable knee immobilizer and crutches.

Now, I’m two hours away, at home, from my school and friends that I love so much. The perfectionist in me is freaking out since I am already missing classes (it’s only the second week!) However, I’m trying to stay positive because I have so many good things coming up back at school – such as recruitment! So with some positive thoughts and good vibes, I’m hoping to make the best of my situation. In the meantime, I’ll be working on some blog posts, catching up on Big Brother, and doing as much homework off my syllabuses so I do not fall behind.

So, readers, send me your good thoughts and positive vibes as you check out this week’s Monday Musts! 

1. The One Direction 3D Movie “This Is Us”

Ever since I heard that One Direction was having a movie come out, I had been counting down the days. So finally, on the first day that it was out, I went with some friends (and ended up seeing some sisters!). We sat closer to the screen than the 10 years who were in the theater. We sang along, we danced, we screamed, and we even shed a few tears. I’m not just saying this because I am a huge Directioner (and plan on marrying Niall), but the movie was incredible. It truly gave fans an inside look on the lives of Harry, Niall, Louis, Zayn, and Liam and showed off more than just the goofy image they portray on Instagram and in Youtube Videos. You learned behind the scenes secrets and looked deeper into their lives as actual people, but just performers. But of course, in true One Direction fashion, there were pranks, laughs, and lots of smiles that makes girls swoon! I already want to see this movie again and could watch it everyday. No matter how big of a fan you are, I recommend going to see the movie. Plus, there were a ton of concert scenes to sing along to as if you were right there in the live audience.

2. Lilly Pulitzer Letters

For my big diamond sister’s birthday, I ordered us matching Lilly Pulitzer letters. I hadn’t worn them since we gotten them because I was just so nervous I was going to ruin wear them before I got to school and wear them with Katherine. This past Wednesday, my college hosted it’s annual Involvement Fair. At the Involvement Fair, students meet members and heads of the different organizations on campus to see if they are interested in signing up. Though I had to work my school’s yearbook stand at the Involvement Fair, I still wore my letters all day and got to snap this picture with my big diamond sister! The letters look super cute, the shirts were so comfy, and we got so many compliments (and 50 likes on Instagram!). I know I will definitely be ordering more Lilly letters soon (plus they match the planner I wrote about in a previous edition of Monday Musts!)

3. Good Vibes

As I mentioned above with my injury, I am trying to stay positive with positive thoughts and good vibes. The beach girl in me is coming out when I say that one of my favorite sayings is “Good Vibes.” My twitter background and phone background even used to say that. Good vibes comes more than just from yourself, but the people you surround yourself with. You can’t stay positive by yourself, you need the people around you. You need to think positive to be positive. Negative people cause negative vibes which will not help you in your life. That is why, whenever I get upset over anything, I remember to stay to positive so I have some good vibes to help me get farther in life. So no matter what you’re going through this week either, just remember to keep some good vibes & send me some while you’re at it!

Enjoy the rest of your week, readers. I hope I have some positive news next week when I write about my Monday Musts!

In the meantime, I’ll try and use my free time to come up with some exciting new story ideas for Sparkle and Shine! 🙂 

My Monday Musts!

Happy Monday, everybody!

I have been working really hard recently trying to come up with the perfect weekly blog idea. Last night, right as I was about to doze off – the idea hit me: My Monday Musts! Every Monday I will be posting about 3 obsessions of mine from the week before.

Without further ado, here is this week’s Monday Musts!

1. CBS’ “Big Brother”

As the drama continues to heat up this season, I continue to become more and more obsessed. Whenever I miss an episode (“Big Brother” is on three times a week), I am always watching it On Demand the next day. I follow at least ten Big Brother twitters that give a play by play of the live feeds and am about to go out and buy Judd’s bear shirt from Walmart since he’s my favorite!

2. “Done” by The Band Perry

Fun fact about me – I love country music. If it’s angsty and girl empowering, then expect me to be blasting it and screaming along at the top of my lungs. My current favorite is the Band Perry’s “Done.” It’s about being done with someone who doesn’t treat you right because everyone deserves to be treated well! Expect me to be tweeting these lyrics for quite some time.

3. My Lilly Pulitzer planner

I was never the type of girl to just sit around and do nothing, especially at school. Between my classes, homework, my sorority, newspaper, yearbook, Her Campus, and now my blog – I don’t have much spare time. I write everything down in my planner and use it as if it was my lifeline. Now that is is officially August, I can start using my Lilly Pulitzer planner than I am absolutely in love with! There’s so much space for me to write down everything I need.

I wonder what this week will entail. I’ll let you all know in next week’s Monday Musts!

Enjoy your week!
