Okay Yeah Co. is Fantactus

Friday, April 28, 2017
I've always been a pop-tart lover. My mom didn't allow me to eat iced pop-tarts as a kid because of the sugar content but I ate the crap out of some plain pop tarts with melted butter on top. Looking back now, I realize that wasn't really any healthier, ha!

Needless to say, when I found out a coffee shop in OKC was making homemade hand tarts, I knew I had to try it. Not only that, but they have succulents!! Coffee + Succulents = Total Happiness. Throw in a pop-tart and I'm in heaven.

I FINALLY got to visit Okay Yeah Co. after begging to go for months. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. It is literally like walking in to a real life Instagram: pallet walls, succulents err'where, perfect latte art, lights strung across the ceiling....even an airstream! They host live music, "Succulents & Sips," yoga, terrarium classes, and a whole lot more. This is the kind of place that reeeeeallly makes me want a job where I can work from home.....so that I can work from a coffee shop. Ah, life goals.

The best part, though, was that hand tart. They have a ton of sweet and savory options to choose from, but I went with the Strawberry Cactus Pear. Holy tastebuds, Batman. It was absolute perfection. The fresh strawberry jam was bursting with fruity flavor and strawberry chunks with just the right amount of cactus mixed in to give it that "something special." Next I want to want to try the S'mores and the Cactus Jalepeno. And basically everything else on the menu.

Okay Yeah Co. was truly fantactus. You betcha I'll be back...and soon!

P.S. Stephen Adam's mural is right outside of Okay Yeah; who cares that we are out of the Playoffs? I'm posting it anyway. #ThunderUp 

My Beach Packing List

Thursday, April 27, 2017
I am counting the days until I say TTFN to OKC and board a plain to somewhere warm and sunny! Spending a week in paradise lounging in the sun and sand with C is just what the doctor ordered. We will be celebrating our two year anniversary - time flies when you're in love :)

Obviously, it is 100% necessary to buy a full new wardrobe when a girl goes on vacay - can I get an amen? I've been searching high and low for the perfect swimsuits, beach hats and straw totes to pack in my carry-on and I'm excited to share them with you below! The only thing I'm still on the hunt for is the perfect maxi dress for dinner...maybe a palm print?! I'm crushing on this one, but holy dollar signs.

Side note: I am new to the carry-on life. I've always checked my bags so I'm slightly nervous about trying to cram all my clothes + my toiletries into a small suitcase! I am also semi-freaking out about the 3 oz restriction on liquids (girls gotta lotta toiletries ya feel me?). Any recommendations or tips? Do you have a certain travel size bottle that you swear by? Help a sista out!

I also added some similar items in the widget below in different styles and price points!

A few things to note: 

  • My current favorite self-tanner! It is more of a red-brown color as opposed to orange, so it doesn't make you look like a snooki-dorito. Plus it is a steal at $12!! My only complaint is that it isn't super dark, so you have to use it regularly/layer up to see a big color difference. 
  • These nikes are my FAVORITE pair of shoes to wear on vacation. They are cute, easy to style with any outfit, and the comfiest pair of shoes to walk in. Highly recommend! I wore them all over Seattle and NYC and never got a single blister. 
  • I've been shopping Target swim for years and am obsessed - they never disappoint! I am not one of those girls that can spend $100 on a swimsuit....I just can't. Target is always on point with their prices and always on trend. I can't wait to rock the first one piece I've owned since the summer camp days circa 2002.
  • This v-neck from Express is one of my all-time favorite t-shirts. It is SO soft and comfy, perfect for sitting on an airplane, but still looks cute and flattering! I might have to order it in every color available because I wear it at least once a week (if not more). 

What are your favorite summer trends? I'm all about the pom-poms, embroidery and off-the-shoulder outfits. Not to mention pineapples and cactuses (cacti?). Go ahead and call me a basic white girl, I'm fine with it.

Friday Favorites

Friday, April 21, 2017
Happy Friday, ya'll! I was swamped this week with work events plus my iPhone crashed on Tuesday....is it just me or is dealing with phone issues the most mentally draining experience?! Luckily I was able to get a brand new phone free of charge and most everything from the old one was recovered. Phew!

#KyloTheMountainDog had a "ruffer" week than I did, though. He was neutered on Monday and has been having a tough time functioning with a cone on his head [read as: he bumps into everything including my legs]. We even had to overnight a Kong inflatable cone from Amazon....I told him it was designer. Needless to say, we are both ready for the weekend! He has a Berner Meet-Up to go to in Edmond tomorrow......hopefully no dogs make fun of the cone of shame, ha!

Sipping Rosé on the Packard's Rooftop - you MUST try their blueberry muffins, I've been craving them every day since!

The two cutest Easter bunnies you've ever seen

Brunching at the Karsten Creek Clubhouse in Stilly for Easter with both sides of our family

Spending $5 on the Unicorn Drink all in the name of Instagram (I poured most of it down the drain)

What is on your weekend agenda? Besides the Berner Meet-Up, we are planning on eating super healthy and spending some quality time in the sun. Trying to get that beach babe body back ASAP, ya feel me?! We also might stop by one of the newest additions to Midtown, Commonplace Books; rumor has it they have a shop dog named Boz! Any book recommendations for me? I'd love to hear your suggestions.

Thanks for stopping by!

My Poshmark Obsession

Monday, April 17, 2017
Have you ever tried Poshmark?

Warning: you will lose track of time and money.

I had an account for forever, but I never really used it until recently. I started buying things on Poshmark before our New York trip and I got hooked! Now, I'm buying stuff for our Belize trip coming up in May...all the embroidered shirts, fringe and pom poms!

I didn't love the idea of buying used clothes and shoes, but Poshmark has a ton of stuff marked "New With Tags," with seriously discounted prices. Plus, you can haggle with the seller! It's a great way to find stylish, high-end items for affordable prices. My champagne taste and beer budget really appreciate it.

When we moved, I majorly cleaned out my closet and started selling things on Poshmark, too! It's super easy - you just snap some pictures on your phone, upload them in the Poshmark app, and add a little information about the item! I always hated selling things on eBay because shipping was a confusing pain in the booty, but Poshmark makes it really easy. They send you a shipping label and all you have to do is print it off, stick it on the box of your choice (USPS provides FREE boxes that you can use) and drop it in a mailbox. Easy as 1, 2, 3. Their shipping is SO fast - regardless of if you're buying or selling, that's a huge plus! You can put the money you make towards new purchases or deposit into a checking account.

Poshmark is seriously fueling my online shopping addiction. Not sure if that's good or bad......but at least I'm making some money in the process, right?? Now if I could just make more than I spend, I'd be set. Ha!

Below are a few items I've purchased recently and am loving. I can't wait to wear the embroidered shirts and beach hat on our next vacay!

I should maybe start ironing....? 

How cute is this bow?! So trendy right now. 

Confession: I currently have a major PJ obsession

You can shop my closet here. If you are a Posher, leave your username below so I can follow you!

Thanks for reading and happy Poshing!

Friday Favorites

Friday, April 7, 2017
I've noticed a lot of bloggers do a "Friday Five" or "Friday Favorites" post every week. It's something I always enjoy reading because it gives a glimpse into their lives outside of food, travel and fashion! Clearly, Friday is a day worth celebrating, so I'm going to start implementing a Friday Favorites post into Amanda's OK, as well.

This week.........

This [always dirty] door mat that I got at the cutest dog boutique in Bentonville, Arkansas

Kylo's Weekly Weigh-In - one of the only things in the world that he doesn't enjoy!

Our attempt at growing fresh herbs. One is already dying.....

Taking an afternoon off work to play hookie!

Sitting front row at a fashion show - I felt so VIP!

What do ya'll have going on this weekend? C is in Texas on a dude's trip, so I'll be spending my Friday night on the couch having a Gossip Girl marathon with the pups (and probably wine). Tomorrow, Ash and I will be brunching on the rooftop at Packard's complete with mimosas and all the VitaminD! I've been looking forward to it (and planning my outfit) for weeks. Now the only question is.....sweet or savory food?! I can never decide.

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
