Custom Made Business Cards with Basic Invite

Business cards are a must no matter what profession you're in and Basic Invite makes it really easy to create fun custom business cards. I recently teamed up with Basic Invite to create my own custom made business cards for my blog and love the result. It's super easy and they have tons of options for every element of the business card.  Check out my design below!

I'm excited to create other fun products with Basic Invite! They also has several other paper products including invitations for absolutely everything, photo christmas cards, stationary, and fancy business cards to name a few. There are also several things that make Basic Invite different from other paper printed products including:

 

Almost Unlimited Colors 

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. This is what we feel sets us apart from almost any other online stationery company and is what we feel is our biggest draw.

Custom Samples 

Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their actual invitation so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order.

Over 40 Different Colors of Envelopes 

Basic Invite is just as colorful with our envelopes as we are with our invitations. Customers can choose from over 40 different colors when it comes to their envelopes so that they can make their invitation stand out even before it is opened. All of our envelopes are peel and seal so the envelopes can be quickly and securely closed.

Address Capturing Service 

Basic Invite offers an address capturing service that allows customers to simply share a link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other form of social media to request their friends and family’s addresses which will be stored in the customer’s account and can then be selected during the design process. Basic Invite offers recipient address printing at no cost on all Christmas card orders.

Foil 

Foil cards are available in gold, silver, and rose gold. Customers can choose flat or raised foil on all of Basic Invite’s foil designs.

Healthy Lifestyle Gains

Here's to another Wednesday! I'm changing it up a bit and sharing some active wear with you all. The gym and I have a different relationship. I grew up ballroom dancing and do still dance but definitely not as much as I did growing up. Of course once I graduated college and started my full time career me and the gym grew even further apart. My first job out of school was on the opposite end of town and I drove an hour to and from work everyday so needless to say when I got home the last thing I wanted to do was workout or eat well. I still battle with this issue, 3 years later, different commute, different job, but a different outlook.

I for the last few months have been focused on the exercise of course but mostly focus on the food. I cut WAY back on soda, sugar, and fast food and sway more towards water, lean protein, fruits, and veggies. Working a desk job I clearly don't move much throughout the day so I make sure to take the stairs and walk when I have a free minute and tend to concentrate on step count on the day to day (of course I still try to hit the gym a few times a weeks also). Between the conscious effort on eating better and moving I can already see a difference and so can others. It amazing that a little goes a long way. 

Anyways on the subject of active wear, this set is from Ellie the subscription box service y'all have heard me talk about several times. I love the sets they send each month and how cute the pieces are, it's motivation to get your butt in gear! Make sure to check them out!

I would love to hear your fitness journey! Comment below! :)

Classic Casual Look

Hey guys! Hope you're having a great week so far! Quick life update for you I'm gearing up for a busy fall. We are headed to Vegas this month, possibly planning some beach trips for September, and I'm boarding my first cruise ship in October. I have weddings booked, wedding planning for my own big day, and starting to plan for the holidays, I seriously need more time in a day, anyone else? 

Anyways...I've got a classic Laramie look for y'all today. When it's not boiling outside a look like this is pretty much my go to. I love everything girly and dressy don't get me wrong but I'm a jeans and t-shirt girl through and through. Old Navy has always had some of my favorite jeans and I love a good distressed pair of denim! Paired with a fun t-shirt with some embroidery from Loft and fun flats (again from Old Navy) add some sunnies and I'm good to go anywhere. This look in total is under $50, you know I love me a sale!!! I hope you love this look!

Let me know what you would like to see next on the blog? Do you want to see some beauty products? Transitional pieces going into fall from summer? Let me know!

 

Floral Fun Look

Happy Wednesday Everyone! It has been raining constantly here in FL so I've been soaking up the sun when I can and embracing those summer look just a little bit longer! This summer I've been living in rompers, shorts, and dresses because the heat has been unreal this summer! Rompers and jumpers are probably the easiest thing to wear in the summer just because that is your whole outfit! Throw on some cute sandals and fun accessories and call it a day! 

This floral number is of course from Old Navy, they really killed it this year with the floral prints and cute styles! I've worn this romper so much this summer, it was definitely one of my go to's. It is so comfortable yet you feel put together and it's just so easy! I mostly wear it with the accessories you see in the photos, my bright pink sandals also from Old Navy and my delicate pink studs are from Kate Spade. You all know I love a good statement piece but my tried and true jewelry is delicate and simple! 

We have some exciting trips that I can't wait to share with ya'll very soon! I also need ya'll to let me know if you want me to do more than one blog post a week, and if so what days? What are some other things you would like to see on the blog? I've been doing a lot of fashion lately but are you interested in beauty products or home decor?  Let me know in the comments below! 

Summertime Fun with ArteSands Swim

Happy Wednesday ya'll! We are officially half way through the week! YAY! Can anyone else believe we are already more than half way through the year? Where does time go, truly?! Anyway we are still very much feeling the heat here in the sunshine state, so all the more reason to be living in our swimsuits! 

I want to talk about ArteSands Swimwear for a minute! This brand is truly amazing, and I love their mission! They really inspire women to embrace their curves and be confident in in their own skin and I think that is amazing for a brand! The quality of the pieces are great as well and they offer such classic silhouettes! Below you will find a cute highwaisted bikini but I also have two one pieces from ArteSands as well and their suits are my favorite to wear! Make sure to check out the brand HERE they really are amazing! 

I paired this look with my go to pool hate from LC Lauren Conrad, and a fun pineapple bag and hot pink sandals these are both from Old Navy. The sandals ya'll have heard me talk about they are my favorite and I want every color! This is my favorite pool look this summer thus far! What is your go to swimwear brand? Let me know!

The Perfect Shoe...For Everyone with Shoes of Prey

Ya'll know I love a good pair of shoes! It's no secret that my closet is filled with every kind of shoes and no lie the line from the movie, In Her Shoes about how clothes don't always look good but shoes always fit is everything! I will never turn away from shoes! Growing up however I always hated my feet, I have a wide foot and finding shoes was a struggle when I was a kid. Even to this day in most brands I have to size up a half size to make up for my wide foot. So I must admit when I saw the range of sizes and widths from Shoes of Prey I had heart eyes!

Shoes of Prey allows you to design and personalize your own shoes! Really, how cool is that?! Like I mentioned they offer extended shoe sizes, US 2-15 and in narrow, wide, and extra wide widths in most styles! I created a super girly pair of heels in the style Ives 70 designed with White Nappa Leather and Rose Gold Metallic Leather, they are what dreams are made of! I just love that you are in charge of every detail in your custom made shoes! They are also so comfortable and beautifully made and packaged! The box, the wrapping, every detail is stunning!  Want your own pair of custom shoes? Click here to check out Shoes of Prey plus I have a coupon code (LARAMIE) for free custom inscription in your new shoes, I put the name of my blog as my inscription in my custom beauties! 

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July ya'll!

Some of my favorite memories with my family are spending the 4th in Michigan with all our extended family cooking out and watching the fireworks over the lake! I haven't been to Michigan in the summer time for a couple years but if you ever have the chance I highly recommend it! The town has a parade and blueberry festival along with so many other fun activities for the 4th!

Here's my fun take on red, white, and blue for the 4th of July. I've been loving pieces from Loft lately and they have some super fun pieces for summer currently! Both the shorts and navy top are from Loft and were super discounted, I got both pieces for under $35. Loft always has some of the best sales around especially when it comes to mark downs on top of sale prices! 

I paired this look with some fun sandals from Old Navy and my Coach purse. I love a great deal and designer bags are no exception! I always try if possible to grab a bag when it is on sale or has made it to the outlet store. This bag was a investment piece but you can't beat the quality and I've worn it almost everyday this year, definitely worth the money!

I hope you all enjoy this look and have an amazing 4th of July! Let me know what your favorite summer looks and activities are! Do you have any fun trips planned? Let me know!

Hamptons Vibes

Happy Wednesday ya'll! Summer is in full swing, especially here in FL and this has to be one of my favorite looks to date! i snagged this Vince Camuto Jumpsuit from TJ Maxx for only $40 isn't that amazing! I love a great deal on high end pieces and TJ Maxx never disappoints. This look is very different from what I'm used to, more bold, bright, and colorful but as long as you like it and feel confident in it that's all that matters! Right?! 

I'm sharing this fun look with you below, as well as the accessory details so keep scrolling and check it out!

This look gives me all the resort feels and makes me feel like I'm in The Hamptons on a vacay! What accessory gives you all the vacay feels? A big floppy hat of course! This LC by Lauren Conrad hat has been my everything since the moment I purchased it! It goes great with everything and is perfect for the beach, pool, picnics, you name it! 

I finished the looks with some pink wedges and gold oval hoop earrings keeping the accessories minimal and clean since the jumper is so loud and vibrant. Jumpers and rompers have quickly become my favorite look this summer since they are so easy and perfect for the heat! 

So between the V-neck on the jumper, the print, the accessories, this looks can really take you anywhere! I've worn this to work paired with a sweater and the same wedges. I've worn it to a conference/event and out to eat! This is perfect for pretty much anywhere and you don't have to try to hard! What do you think of this look and are you loving jumpers just as much as me this season? Let me know!

Summer Night Out

Summer is probably my favorite season next to spring not only for the beach days and fun trips but the fashion! I love the bright colors and fun accessories. Summer is a time to be playful and just have fun and what better way to do that than with your wardrobe? Am I right?! Some of my best memories and fashion moments have definitely been in the summer time which is why I'm so excited to share this look with ya'll!

Date night usually consist of myself wearing skinny jeans and a cute (usually black or white) top and wedges. So I've decided to switch it up a bit, with the FL sunshine as hot as ever you don't need an excuse to wear a sundress. This is one of my go to's for summer, yes I know it has long sleeves but this dress is the lightest most breathable cotton and the sleeves eliminate having to bring a sweater to happy hour or the movies. I added the fun pineapple clutch for that fun summer touch and some nude wedges that are the most comfortable things ever, and with a fiance who's over 6 ft. tall I tend to sway towards wedges when I can (short girl here). 

You can find the dress and clutch at Old Navy and the wedges at Nordstrom Rack, but currently tons of places have cute sun dresses and wedges, including Target, Loft, and TJ Maxx! I've linked these pieces below for you to shop the look!

Let me know what you think of this look and what you like to wear on a date night in the summer time!!

They are amazing and each of them are so essential to me! The Origins primer is everything! This primer has changed my makeup forever, everything applies better and lasts longer and doesn't suffocate your pores, it's amazing! Finally this lip color from Colourpop and Kathleen Lights is super perfect for Summer and is the perfect orangy red and can be worn with everything!
