Riffraff - "Let the Beauty of What You Love, Be What You Do"


Mike and I had a great time in NWA over the weekend! It was so good to see my BFF Ash, her husband Chad and of course her beautiful baby girl Avery!! We had a full weekend & did so many fun things! I will have to make a post or two this week to show everything we did. We took a ton of pics! We got back late tonight because Mike and I took our time getting out of town, shopped a little and then we also stopped in Little Rock to go to one of my favorite childhood restaurants. I wanted to do a quick post though and say hello to our friends at Riffraff. I have been following the blog and knew that was one of the places I wanted to go while I was in town for the weekend.  I saw SO many things I was just dying to bring home! I wanted one of everything!! Since we are still getting settled in our house I was having a hard time thinking about what would go where. There was so many pieces in such amazing colors, but I couldn't think where I would want to put a piece of furniture or accessories since I'm still trying to figure out where our own things need go. I didn't leave empty handed though. I found a really neat pendant and so Mike got it for me. It's so cute and I love the saying on it, "Let the Beauty of What You Love, Be What You Do." I can also reverse it and where it on the other side without the quote.  I am going to look around the house this week and think about what things and colors I may need in each room. I am hoping to go back in October and maybe by then I will have a better idea of everything and what it is I do really need.  

The owner of Riffraff, Kirsten Blowers was so sweet and I just loved her store. I was telling her how lucky she is to get to do what she loves every singe day. I could tell she truly loves her job and that is just awesome. Not many people can say that these days! She is definitely a perfect example of what the quote on the pendant means! 

So thank you Riffraff for your kindness and I can not wait to come back soon!!! I just LOVE this store!!



Ash & I before lunch after some shopping . . . notice I am wearing my new necklace from Riffraff! Couldn't wait to wear it!!
