Hiiiiiiii! My mom is my best friend, partner in crime, and shopping buddy. Our excursions to the shops has given my mom expert knowledge into Lil Red’s fashion sense, and she now seems to know my personal style like the back of her hand. My mom is also an amazing surprise giver and always seems to know when her daughter needs a little pick me up. After a seriously lackluster and downright shitty afternoon, my beloved mom returned home from Target with these gorgeous earrings for little old moi:
When it comes to earrings, I made the lifestyle choice years ago to only wear dangly ones, because they are extra fun with short hair. I also deeply enjoy loud gold jewelry, but never really buy any for myself because I’m not the biggest accessorizer in the world. I love these earrings that my mom picked out for me, but I don’t know if I would have bought them for myself – which is probably exactly why she chose them!
It doesn’t take much to make me happy. A kind word always will do – but a lovely new pair of earrings definitely helps the cause! Thanks to a sweet surprise, my mom took away the not so stellar parts of my day and replaced it with something good and kind. She really is the best!
I LOVE YOU, MOM!!!! ❤

Hi everyone and happy Hump Day! I hope that all of you are having a fabulous week so far. So this past weekend my mom surprised me and my sister with new matching earrings and they are SO pretty. She got my new little beauties from Target and I was pleasantly surprised because they are pretty hit or miss with their jewelry selection, in my most humble opinion. My mom hit the nail on the head with these dangling darlings so take a look and let’s discuss:
It’s nice to know that my mom didn’t break the bank with these eight buck beauties for me and my sister. But, it’s even nicer to know that she saw these and thought of us enough to actually buy them. Little gifts and surprises like my new earrings make me so happy because everyone likes to be thought of every once in a while. To come home to my mom saying that she bought something special just for me automatically gave me the warm fuzzies. And I’m even warmer AND fuzzier considering that I’m beyond obsessed with my terrestrial themed earrings! :*)
I LOVE YOU, MOM!!!!!!!! ❤
So there you have it, my New Earrings Surprise compliments of my darling mama! What is your favorite gift that someone has given you? How do you like to surprise your loved ones? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
Helloooooo everyone and TGIF! This post isn’t going to be a long one, but it’s something that I thought was worth sharing because it was super sweet. Earlier this week when I was with a girlfriend, I got a call from my sister Kristen asking when I was going to be home. She told me that she was at Kohl’s earlier in the day and she bought me a pair of really cute earrings. Now usually Kristen and I have very different styles, so I was a bit ambivalent about what her idea of “cute” for me might be, but I was still extremely touched and couldn’t wait to get home to see my new addition to my earring collection. Unfortunately by the time I got home, Kristen was already asleep. (She doesn’t have the nickname “Sleepy” for nothing!) I kind of forgot about her little surprise for me until I was in my room taking off the earrings and bracelets I had on that day when I noticed the gift placed strategically in the middle of my desk. I hurried over to my desk, and this is what I saw:
^^^ So cute!!! As soon as I laid eyes on them “awww” was the first thing out of my mouth! Not only was Kristen’s gift extremely sweet and thoughtful – but I was so impressed at how perfect her selection was for me. These earrings are so fun and quirky, and I can’t wait to put them in my second hole on my double pierced ears. I was so sad that Kristen was already asleep because I didn’t get to thank her as soon as I received the earrings, but I texted her a “thank you” and an “I love you” for when she woke up. As soon as I saw her the next day, thanking her was the first thing I did. Her little pick me up really did make my evening and the good vibes definitely carried on to the following day. The little things in life really are so special to me. Whether it be a letter in the mail, a compliment from a stranger, or a tiny pair of colorful earrings…as my featured image picture says “It’s the small things that make life big”. So true.
I hope all of you guys have a fabulous Friday and an even better weekend! What’s everyone up to this weekend? Any big plans? I wanna hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah
