Baby showers!

Fun, festive !! But if I have anything to do with it, I’m not going to let the gender dictate the shower.

Let’s just go with it, you know?

So when my little sister, Faye, announced she was pregnant I jumped at the chance to throw her a shower with our stepmom, Julie. As you know Julie is AMAZING. She helped create the vision of our home & is really the best cook…ever? Together we planned a shower that was very much my sister, Faye, without making it super gender-ish.

We kept the blue & pink theme contrasting throughout the whole shower. Table cloths & candies were white & blue and then we did pink cotton candy to go in the cocktails. Julie brought cactus cupcakes ( yes, I know, how cute ) & designed insane cactus table clothes for the food table. Food was whipped up by my dad who made perfect spicy chicken verde enchiladas ( Daddy: can we please have the recipe? I’ve only been waiting 5 years? ) & chiles rellenos.

My whole family helped set up & ( surprise, surprise ) we left everything to the last minute so some of my friends had to chip in too…HA. The lateness runs in the family?

Just a couple of shoutouts:

Big thanks to Van De Vort for the spicy top ( LOVE! ), Roseur for supplying literally the most beautiful pink roses on the planet, Suja Juice for the perfect addition to mimosas ( Lemon Love is a fav ), Sugarfina for the candy because really I can’t throw a party without them, Blush Tan ( organic spray tans for everyone !! ), & SkinFix because it makes fun goodie bags. Candles are Wood Creek, vanilla flavored. Ultimately the champagne / rosé gummy bears brought the whole party together. To keep the vibe strong, Bossanova played in the background.

Ok, changing directions – Erica & I designed these super cute baby shower games for Faye through our company, blog-doo. Erica is like the most the talented person when it comes to graphic design…& well, I’m the most skilled micromanager, as you know. We certainly make an interesting team, right?

On that note, here’s a quick peek into the shower:

Games anyone?

I’m definitely not a game person but, it’s a fun touch. We played games for like 5 seconds until we were distracted by The Nanz’ jokes. What can I say?

ALSO we made Faye a baby shower geo filter. Highly recommend if you’re throwing someone a party. There’s really nothing more fun than doing a Snap, throwing the ‘pretty filter’ on it, & finding a personalized geo filter. Nothing. Big thanks to the Snapchat team for dealing with my lateness & getting the baby shower filter up in like…2 hours. Whoops.

So yes!! A fun-filled non-gender related baby shower for you! We had so much fun. The party continued across the street. It was a real ball.

My sister looked beautiful & I’m SO excited to be an aunt!

& for the record, instead of getting her a diaper bag we got her this chic Cynthia Rowley duffle bag & filled it with a bunch of baby essentials like Honest wipes, lavender hand sanitizer, rose water spray, neon BANDAIDS, organic diapers, & lots of essential oils. I love getting someone a chic bag, individually wrapping each item & then placing them all in the chic bag. It’s like unwrapping a bunch of tiny gifts in one gift.

Ok! That’s it, off to bed. Goodnight guys, lauryn

Christmas was filled with people I love, a little eggnog, & a lot of laughing.

But shocker: I’m dead tired.

Like, so, so, ridiculously-falling-asleep-while-typing-this-about-to-cry-tired.

So we’re laying low with some friends tonight & hopefully we’ll end up in bed watching the cartoon version of The Grinch. Buttttt the night will involve lotssss of popcorn ( << I bought a popcorn machine that I couldn’t be more excited about (!!!) ) & mugs of green tea.

So buh-bye Christmas; lezzz get ready for 2014!

A Lil Crave // Save Collab with Evillarts

LAURYN

Lauryn Evarts talks with supermodel, Lauren Hastings about diet, fitness, and modeling.Happy Sunday! I hope you’re all relaxing.

My day was pretty uneventful: cleaned the house, drank raw coconut water, read, took a walk, &…did some online shopping.

Oopsy.

I blame my sister.

I didn’t plan on shopping.

Swear.

BUT.

We’ve been planning a crave & save post together ( << Faye’s instagram, Evillarts Vintage showcases how to find those expensive, break-the-bank items but for wayyyyyy less $$$ ) & my sister sends the pictures of the dresses she picked.

I literally died.

Because honestly? I immediately liked the ‘save’ better than the ‘crave.’

& for $24.80?

Sold. Thx. Bye. #onlineshoppingprobz.

I’ll be wearing this gem to a holiday party with this rose gold cuff + this little, festive green clutch.

So ok, ok, back to biz—- Faye’s crave & save:

The crave: ‘Jaydn Sheer-Skirt Maxi Dress’ ( left ) is by Alice + Olivia.

The save: ‘The Striking Cutout Maxi Dress’ ( right ) is by Forever 21.

Which do you like better?

BTW: don’t forget to check out Faye’s instagram— so many steals/deals.

Happiest Sunday, xx.
