It’s my birthdayyyyy!!!

Before you ask what I’m doing to celebrate: I’m checking myself into Hiatus Spa this morning for a morning of pampering. And then I have lunch with Christina of Fashion & Frills at my favorite next-to-campus spot (Dive) so I can get my favorite wrap (their ahi tuna wrap – so good!). And then class + post-class drinks with friends at Tipsy Alchemist!

To celebrate my birthday, I thought it might be fun for me to share 28 things you didn’t know about me (well, unless you’re my parents… and then you def know everything).

Because I’m turning 28 today. In case you didn’t know. (Fact #1 perhaps?)

Colorful Clutches to Get You In the Summery Mood

LOFT Orange Straw Clutch with White and Gold Jack Roger Sandals

What a fun weekend. Seriously. I don’t think I can remember the last time I had such a great weekend, full of friends and relaxation and fun.

Such a fun weekend, in fact, that I fell asleep last night without writing today’s post. (Rookie mistake!)

Today’s post is all about colorful summer clutches. Because just sticking to 50 shades of beige all summer long is way too boring.

Oh and PS all of my picks are under $200 (and all but two are under $100!) so get excited.
