Cute & Inexpensive Summer Finds!

Like many of you, I run around at work non-stop during certain times of the year. In higher education events, we work from August until May without taking a moment to breathe. When May finally arrives, we produce the biggest event that the university sees each year by organizing a commencement ceremony for thousands of students, family members, and friends. This is why it can be a bit difficult to slow down, inhale, and exhale when summer arrives.

A few recent purchases have made the transition to summer days so much easier!

1. The Perfect Sunnies - There's nothing better than the way a cute new pair of sunglasses makes you feel. I'm more of a cheap sunnies kind of gal, so for me, this means heading to the accessories section of my nearest Target. This easy summer update cost me $14.00!

2. A Fun Oversized Float - Tacos, unicorns, flamingos and my personal favorite, a big white swan - You name it, an extra large float probably exists. Two years ago, I purchased a pink donut float, but this year, I was especially drawn to the swan. Alex and his Dad helped me blow it up, and we had the best time playing around in the pool on both! Target had these for a steal at $16.00!

3. A Fresh Swimsuit - I hadn't planned on buying a new bathing suit this year, but when shopping at a local consignment store this past week, I came across a fabulous Lilly Pulitzer two-piece in my size! It was love at first sight and for a fraction of the cost at $35.00! As you can imagine, this little number came home with me, and made me super pumped for weekends spent poolside with friends and family.

These three easy summer updates have helped me ease into summer super affordably! What helps you relax when things finally slow down?

Mantel Styling 101

One of the awesome elements I'll have in my new apartment is a mantel with a working gas fireplace! Saying I'm excited for this addition is an understatement! As a natural focal point in the space, I want my mantel to be a statement piece and a reflection of my style and personality. While scanning Pinterest, I've learned there are generally four elements that make up a well-styled mantel.

1. Focal Point - This is normally a large photograph, painting, or mirror. It provides the anchor for the mantel decor. I plan to use the large leafy print pictured below that I picked up at HomeGoods!

2. Weight - On one side of the focal point, you need another vessel or object. This should be smaller than the focal point, but larger than the other pieces. When using a vase, it helps to fill it with faux branches or flowers to add height. I hope to use a large, gold "M," similar to the letter you see below.

3. Movement/Height - Often found in objects like candlesticks or topiaries, these help to balance your focal point/weight. I'm leaning toward using a series of framed photos or a chinoiserie vase.

4. Objects/Filler - Smaller objects such as candles, figurines, or books are used to fill the space and complete the triangle. These pieces are likely the most unique, and give you an opportunity to complete the showcase with something that's personal to you.

This is obviously my first time decorating a mantel, but I'm super excited to experiment with pieces old and new!

Budbreak 2017

Alex and I recently attended the Budbreak Wine and Craft Beer Festival in Mount Airy, North Carolina. The festival takes place in the middle of downtown Mt. Airy and features numerous local wine, beer, and food vendors. Alex has attended multiple years since his family lives in the area, but as a newbie to Mount Airy traditions, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect!

We started the afternoon with lunch at the Old North State Winery "ONS", one of the Martin Family's favorite places in town. This local winery founded in 2002 features a downtown deli and tasting room right on Main Street. After indulging ourselves in a delicious lunch, we made our way back onto the street to begin tasting!



The weather in Mt. Airy that day was a bit chilly, which helped to lessen the crowds at Budbreak. We never waited more than five minutes to try any of the wines. As we moved between vendors, I constantly found myself drawn to sweeter wines, especially those made with muscadine grapes! My personal favorite drink of the day was a frozen peach bellini. It was delicious and even matched my outfit!


Wine festivals like Budbreak are the perfect time to try a lot of different options and feel out what you like and don't like...even if it means having a glass in each hand from time to time!


Spending the day at Budbreak was the perfect transition into wine festival season and summer! I'm also so thankful for the memories I made with Alex and his family that day. We are already looking forward to next year's festival!

Black & White Patio Decor

I am so excited to soon be moving into a new apartment! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my current apartment, but am finally ready to be a bit more realistic about my priorities, and there's nothing better than a new project! Who am I, right?! The new place will allow me to gain an extra 1/2 bath (PRAISE,) a small patio space, and the ability to save a lot of money each month. These three things equal increased wellness for me and an overall happier bank account!

Currently on the hunt for fabulous (yet affordable) patio decor, you'll often find me scouring websites like Ikea and Pier 1, or visiting stores like HomeGoods and Target on a regular basis. I'm also checking out fun boutique shops during my travels, like the Little Leaf shop in Washington, D.C. Y'all if you haven't been yet, you've got to go!

This place gave me all the feels!
 

I love having patio inspiration at my fingertips, so I've created a Pinterest board to collect ideas. This has been super helpful to group photos and refer back to them while shopping. I took things a step further by requesting the measurements of the new patio, so I'm shopping for items that I truly have space to accommodate. The space is 5'3" from front to back and 8' long, which seems standard for most apartment patios.

I know I want a place to sit and relax in comfortable seating. 

I want to utilize a patio rug or some type of flooring.
 
I also want to see greenery either in potted plants or window boxes, and I want cute accent details. In my mind, these are things like lanterns, Edison bulbs, garden stools and candles. 
      

Stay tuned for the progress so far!

Longing for Blogging

Over the past few weeks, I've had a strong longing for blogging. I can't pinpoint exactly where it comes from, but I can say that it's the same feeling I had when I started my blog for the very first time in 2011. How in the world it's been six years since then, I have no idea! Anyway, at that time, there were things going on in my life that I thought others might want to know or read about. This brings me to today. In the absolute best way, there are so many things going on in my life! From family, friends, relationships, and career happenings, I couldn't ask for more blessings. There are exciting changes around every corner, and I want those that are interested to be able to read about them through my own words.

So, blogging community (who has read my words and accepted them time and time again,) if you'll have me, I'd love to come back to Sweet Like a Song! I don't know how often or for how long, but I do know there will be some catching up to do, and many new things along the way! You'll hear about trips and great food, adventures with apartment hunting and home decor, talk of my friends and family, and as always, lots and lots of shopping! See, some things never change! :) It may also take a little while to get this page updated, so bear with me.

I look forward to updating you on my life, and I hope you'll do the same for me with yours! Let's see how this thing goes!

...and just for the sake of continuity...

Let the Planning Begin!

Months ago, I sat in Sweet Frog, enjoying frozen yogurt (cake batter, please) brainstorming internship ideas with my friends Marcia and Don. My graduate program gives students the opportunity to complete a 100-hour internship instead of taking a full-semester course just before graduation. I can remember thinking to myself that if an internship was indeed a possibility, it HAD to incorporate my three passions: event planning, New York City and Appalachian State in one grand experience. Most students that complete internships are full-time students, and have the whole summer to move somewhere else or work in an office on campus. While working full-time, I don't have that luxury, but made it my personal mission to make it work.

The next day, I had it figured out.



I could plan an alumni event at the Appalachian Loft in New York City. I love New York, and the AppLoft is the perfect place to bring together former fellow Mountaineers for one magical evening. The only other thing I needed was someone else to believe in my dream just as much as I did. A week later, I met with our Chancellor, and casually mentioned this idea that I'd dreamt up one evening over frozen yogurt. She loved it! She was on board, and the wheels started turning.
A lot has happened since then. I've filled out tons of paperwork, registered for the internship and paid for the credit hours that I hope to earn when all this is complete. This was all done without knowing the actual date of this of the event...until yesterday. Yesterday afternoon, I got the information that I'd been waiting to hear for so long.



Wednesday, April 1, 2015



Believe me, this isn't an April Fool's joke! It's the real thing. My first shot at planning an event in New York City!



If anyone has been waiting for a sign like I have, I'd say this is it!



Let the planning begin!

102 Days!

As I sit here writing this post I am tired, exhausted, and just plain worn out. I left my apartment at 7:50 this morning and didn't get back home this evening until 9:15 p.m. This whole working full time and going to graduate school thing is kicking my butt, and to be honest, it has been for the past year and a half. That's right, I've been in school for 1.5 years! It feels like just yesterday I was going to my first day of school, but today I am happy to report that graduation is 102 days away!

102 Days!!! 

Cue the confetti and champagne!

That's just 3 months and 3 weeks away. Oh my lord, I'm so excited! I've got a ton of work to do between now and then, but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I haven't quite decided what I'm going to do to celebrate 100 days of school left, but it's in the works!

Between now and graduation, I hope to blog about all the fun things leading up to it, especially my internship, graduation cap decorating, graduation party details, and the most important part, the DRESS! Believe me, she's going to be a beauty!

In the meantime, here are a few flashbacks from this crazy journey!

The day I got my acceptance letter!

My first day of school!


One year left!
I can do this! I just know it!
