What I've Been Up To

Hello Gorgeous! Long time, no see! As you probably know, my schedule has been extremely busy lately, but I wanted to take a few minutes to share some of the fun things I've been up to. Of course, most of my time has been devoted to school (I defend my masters in just 8 days), but here are some of the highlights from the past month!

My fiance and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary!

And I wore this little number to our celebratory dinner. This Free People dress was also featured in a post back in May. Here I styled it with my new boots by Nicole and a tan cardy.

I also went to Seattle for a conference!

And drank an average of 2.5 lattes each day...

And found this huge ass leaf. :)

And this past weekend I took my etsy shop on the road as I participated in my first craft fair! I made lots of new designs in preparation. Here are just a few:

Paracord Survival Bracelet - $10
Braided Triple Wrap Bracelet - $20
Beaded Adjustable Macrame Bracelet - $18
By the way, Black Friday & Cyber Monday are just around the corner and I will be offering some great deals! On Friday, you can get 10% off plus FREE SHIPPING with code BLKFRISHIP! There will be other deals on Shop Small Saturday and Cyber Monday as well, but the deal on Friday will definitely be the best, so be sure to shop my etsy store, Tara Lane Designs, on Friday!

So that's what I've been up to! What have you all been doing lately? I've been missing you!
