Where To Get Cute Stationary + Graduation Invitations

Sunday, April 14, 2019
Since opening my online boutique, I have been on the lookout for the cutest stationary that I could get for an affordable price. When Basic Invite
reached out to me, I was thrilled! After taking a look at their website, I was hooked. They have so many selections of Business cards, stickers, graduation invitations, wedding invitations, and more! They had so many cute options for my business and I will definitely be going back when I'm in need of invitations. 



Southern Belle OOTD+ 7 Things

Sunday, April 7, 2019
The changing of seasons from Winter to Spring has always been my favorite time of the year. There's just something about warm sunlight after a long, cold Winter that brings out the happiest moods and the most hopeful feelings.
I also wanted to share 7 things that I have been inspired by lately. I feel like God has been teaching me a lot over the past few months and I wanted to share some of my thoughts.


In case you haven't heard, I recently launched my own online boutique! All the pieces I'm wearing can be purchased through the links below. I would LOVE for you to check them out and tell me what you think! 








1. I think it's important that we are creating more than we are consuming. In today's society, it's so easy to consume information 24/7 on our phones, TV, the internet, social media, etc. I am learning how important it is to just sit and be still. To sit in God's presence, the presence of friends and family, and to be fully aware of your surroundings. To put my phone down and to live REAL life. To be creative in things like painting, reading, writing, music.
2. It's easy to feel bitterness towards people when you feel as if they have wronged you. Or maybe you just hold a grudge against them because of something that happened in the past. Instead of thinking badly of them and letting that consume you, I have learned how important it is to look at them through God's eyes. Realize that they are also God's child and he cares about them just as much as he cares about you. That thought process has helped me overcome arrogance and entitlement, and helped me to see others in a different light.
3. "The presence of anxiety is unavoidable, but the prison of anxiety is optional!" -Proverbs 31 podcast
4. Working out is not only beneficial for your body but for your soul.
5. Cooking more at home has improved my health so much! It's crazy the difference I have seen in my body, skin, and mood just from cutting back on fast food.
6. This has been such a busy season of life with going to school full time and starting up businesses, but I am beyond thankful for the opportunities God has placed in my life.
7. "God cannot give us happiness and peace apart from himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing." - C.S. Lewis

HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT!

Wednesday, April 3, 2019





2018 for me was a year of preparation. At times it felt long and hard, but I know everything I went through was preparing me for my future. Throughout the year, I was in a completely different mind space. I was hopeful for my future but very confused about it at the same time. I had all these ideas in my head for starting a business and making a difference, but I had no idea how I would be able to pull it off. I even tried pursuing other careers , like Cosmetology, because I wasn't confident enough in myself to pursue what I knew in my heart I needed to do. I loved Cosmetology school but deep down I always knew it wasn't for me. I still don't have everything figured out; but I have learned that in order to live a fulfilled life, we must do what we were created to do. Everyone is created so uniquely with different talents, visions, and abilities. It's up to us to use those things for God's glory. I said all of that to say this: if you're going through a weird stage of life where you don't know which path to pursue, go down the path where passion and purpose lives. Choose your passion and work HARD for it every single day until you succeed. I'm thankful God has brought me further than I ever thought I would be, and has presented me with so many opportunities I only dreamed of having. I'm so happy to finally be working on something I have been passionate about for so long. 
With that being said, 

 I'm SO excited to finally tell everyone about the upcoming launch of my new online clothing store, Rosie Meadow! Rosie Meadow has been an idea of mine since I was about 17 and it has been so fun, challenging, and rewarding to finally see my dream come to life. I would love for you to head over to Rosie Meadows Instagram page to follow and be on the lookout for giveaways, announcements, and the website launch on tomorrow, April 5th!

Understanding Mutual Funds

Understanding Mutual Funds



 Hailed as an efficient way for individual investors to access the market, mutual funds, like other useful investment tools, have become increasingly popular. Since 1969, assets in mutual funds have grown from $48 billion to nearly $8.6 trillion. In just the last 10 years, mutual fund assets have nearly tripled. And today, nearly half of all U.S. households own mutual funds, compared with less than 6 percent in 1980 [Investment Company Institute (ICI), www.ici.org].
So, what is a mutual fund? At its most basic level, a mutual fund is a portfolio of securities owned by a collection of shareholders. While mutual funds have many different investment strategies, they primarily come in three basic types. Equity funds invest primarily in stocks; fixed-income funds invest in government or corporate securities offering fixed rates of return; and balanced funds invest in a combination of equity and fixed-income securities.
According to the ICI, the trade organization representing the mutual fund industry, there are now approximately 8,300 U.S.-based mutual funds. With all the choice available to U.S. investors it’s important for individuals to know about this popular investment vehicle.
