WIWW-Oodles of Swag

As you all have heard by now (I'm sure), last weekend I was attending Creative Estates! I have already talked about the amazing amazing girls I met, how much fun we had together, and the friendships that were formed over four short days. 

Although I am not one to dwell on the past (which I consider last weekend to be, duh), much has gone on in the last few days that I have been saddened by. I do feel like the girls have said pretty much everything already...

So, I will just say this: 
I do think I missed out on really getting to know some of the girls, because the retreat itself was such a HUGE part of my attitude towards everything. To be honest, I completely let my negativity take over at some points....I NEVER do that!! I think that when you are thrown into a situation that you are less than comfortable with, it is hard to be how you intended to be. Heck, I didn't even get to know some of the girls' NAMES! Sheesh. That should tell you something.

BUT......I have realized this much:
We are all different.
We are all crazy in our own way.
We are all entitled to our opinions.
We ALL had different experiences last weekend.

AND that is JUST FINE! You live, you learn, and you MOVE ON.

SO...I'm moving onto one of the BEST PARTS of last weekend---MY SWAG BAG!!!! 
I cannot believe all the incredible things that were given, made with love, and sent to Arizona to take their rightful place in my black bag! :) I don't want to take ANYTHING away from these ladies that gave their amazing products to us---cause they are THE (that's right)!

 Just SOME of my favorites:
1--The most fun hair accessories by ARTSY ANTHROPOLOGY
2--Probably the cutest Paper Clips ever by SUGAR AND DOTS
3--Diana makes THE CUTEST prints (and happens to be the sweetest chick ever) by
4--Flower necklace by VINTAGE WANNABEE (LOVE LOVE HER!!!)

5--Adorable headband by LONESTAR LOVLIES
Fabric flower earrings by ALONG FOR THE RIDE
Bobbypins!! by LOVESTITCHED
The cutest hair accessories ever (remember my big blue bow?) by MUCH LOVE ILLY

Aren't they all SO GOSH DANG DARN CUTE!? GO VISIT their shops and show them some MAJOR LOVE!
They seriously deserve every ounce of it!!!!!!!!!

And here is what ELSE I wore today (it's been an indecisive day for me apparently :)

THIS one is for you Ashley! :) 

 I'm not gonna lie, I didn't put a whole lot of thought into this it's a little boring 
                                     (but sometimes, that's just the way the cookie crumbles)
