The famous pink wall finally! Wall art of any kind always interests me so a stop at the Paul Smith store on Melrose was on my list while I was in California this summer. My favorite MUMU shorts were perfect for the day as it was literally 100 degrees and boiling hot outside. They're super breezy and lightweight making for the perfect summer short. Shop their multiple prints at ShowMeYourMuMu.com xx, M
Our last stop on our AR > CA drive! Salvation Mountain has an amazing aray of colors and artwork scattered around the area. And what better romper to pair it with than the Rascal Romper in Cactus Bloom by Show Me Your MuMu! Salvation Mountain is all about spreading the word that God is Love, and I couldn't agree more. It's a beautiful place to take a few minutes and really reflect on the greatness that is God and that His gifts to us are never ending. xx, M
I have worked with Megan Hampel photography a few times in the past four years. She did my senior photos and we've worked on some creative shoots together. Megan is so great at what she does! We did a collab a few weeks ago for a project she was doing. It was a tasteful boudoir and wedding themed shoot and was shot on film, super cool! A few of my favorites are below! For a full look check out her blog here and for outfit details keep scrolling :)

I've been wanting to make one of these for a while and today was one of my rare free days! It is super easy and took me maybe 30 minutes tops! I got all of my supplies from Hobby Lobby with the handy 40% off discount they offer + lucky me I went on the day it was half off flowers. Score! Just follow the easy steps below and you're on your way to creating your own Floral Monogram! xx, M
What You Need:
pair of scissors or a knife
hot glue gun
2 bundles of fake flowers
1 - Cut one side of your cardboard letter off. Just slice down each side but be careful of course :)
2 - Take the weird filler things out. They aren't attached so pop out super easy.
3 - Next cut your styrofoam in smaller shapes that fit inside your letter. If you can't fill every single area that's fine! Your flowers will cover the holes anyways.
4 - After you cut your flowers (leaving 1/4 - 1/2 inch on the stem) stick them into the styrofoam however you want them placed! If you have a difficult letter like an M I would aim to get smaller flowers for the pointed parts so the letter forms better.
And there you have it! A beautiful floral monogram! Let me know if you have anymore DIY ideas you want me to try I'm always on the lookout for fun crafts and recipes! And if you use this tutorial post a photo on Instagram and tag me! xx, M
