Twilight Concert Series Buzz

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Summer summer summer, my absolute favorite time of the year. If you live in the Salt Lake area you probably know that the summer Twilight Concert Series is just around the corner. For me, even if I don’t know an artist or band chances are I’ll pay the $5 and go so that I don’t miss out on a fun time with friends. Luckily this year I know a lot of the groups coming through for the series, but in years past I’ve found myself at some of the shows not knowing any songs or really much of anything about the band on stage.

So for all my fellow FOMO people, below is a list of the bands coming through this summer and some links to their most popular songs. You might even recognize some and think “oh yeahhhhhh, I’ve heard this!” And for all of you that already know the groups coming to Twilight, one of my next posts will have all the best eats and drinks for your Thursday night out in SLC, so stay tuned!

Local Ladies Buzz

Hiiiiii everyone!! I posted so long ago on Instagram that I was going to make a post about some local businesses owned by awesome ladies- so here it is, as promised! Sorry for the delay!

This post is going to be pretty short and sweet, but supporting awesome women and their dreams is something that’s so important to me! So here is all the buzz on some great businesses, online and in the Salt Lake area, that are owned by some badass ladies!

  1. Eggs in the City– Who doesn’t love great breakfast?! This is easily my favorite place in Salt Lake for breakfast and lunch. It’s super popular so most people have probably already been there, but if you haven’t go give it a try! It’s located in the cutest Sugarhouse neighborhood right at 13th South and about 19th East. And if you pop in on a busy Saturday or Sunday, you’ll often find the owner at the host counter getting people seated, pouring coffee (they have great coffee, btw) and working right on the floor with her team. Yay for breakfast and women who kick booty!
  2. BeBronzed Sunless Tanning– there is nowhere else in Salt Lake that I’ll go for a spray tan! I’m super pale so I love a good spray tan and I’ve never left BeBronzed looking orange or streaky! The owner, Jamie, is the best and she’ll make you feel so comfortable despite the fact that you’re standing in a room totally naked. Also, her space is SO CUTE and she has great products that will extend the life of your tan and keep you glowing! Last but not least, she has the most reasonable prices and she’s always offering discounts for referring your friends (which you will totally do because you’ll love it so much). Yay Jamie and BeBronzed and feeling like a glowing goddess!
  3. Sand + Sage– I know I’ve already done a whole blog post about this cute shop but I just love it! Paulina, the shops owner, is not only great at her job but also the nicest gal! Her shop is full of cute clothes that I can wear so many times and style so many different ways! AND the shipping is free AND you’re supporting a local gal who is pursuing her dreams (and what is better than that?!) Yay for Sand + Sage and clothes we love and sweet people who sell them!
  4. Hillary West Jewelry– Do. Not. Buy. Jewelry. Anywhere. Else. But really, Hillary is the best. Not only does she make amazing jewelry, but she’s also my sister so DOUBLE GREAT! Hill pours her heart and soul into every piece of jewelry that she makes and creating amazing pieces is what she’s truly passionate about. She’s located in Denver, CO but she has a website so you can buy buy buy from wherever you live! Every piece of her jewelry is handmade because not only does she know a ton about gems and jewels but she also does her own blacksmith work (what a badass, right?!) so she can take an old piece and completely redesign it into something new. She makes custom pieces as well so if you have a stone you need in a new setting or a totally personal idea for a piece, she can make it happen! She’s a true artist and her work is AMAZING! Yay for being creative and amazing and buying jewelry from someone who is so invested in their craft!

So there’s my list- these gals are all amazing!! If you know of a business that’s owned or run by a powerful, awesome, female send me the company’s information because 1. I obviously want to support them and their business, and 2. I’ll post about them so we can all support them together!

Sand + Sage (shopping, yay!)

Okay hi! We’ve missed you! I (Rehn) went on a vacation but we’re back and have GREAT stuff to share with you. We’ll be sharing two posts with you this week. So today, we are excited to share a new brand with you!

Before we get to that, I just want to say that usually I’m super super loyal to the places I shop. It’s honestly pretty rare that I’ll venture out from my normal stores/brands to something new, so the fact that I fell in love with this new shop is big for me. So read this and then go CHECK IT OUT!

The shop is called Sand+Sage. Their style is pretty beachy and relaxed and they have GREAT basics. Below are two of the tanks I got and they are truly the softest shirts I own! Also, I love these two tops because they’re really versatile. I wore the light pink top the other night with jeans and a baggy cardigan over it, and then wore it again today to work with a pair of black jeans, and a trench-ish style coat over it and heels.

Some info about the company- The cutest gal, Paulina, in SLC, owns the company. She opened the shop just this month and you can find them on instagram (@sand_and_sage) and of course place orders on the website, www.shopsandandsage.com. Their stuff is practical, affordable, and so comfortable! And to sweeten the whole deal, ALL ORDER SHIP FREE IN THE USA!

So go check it out & use code BB15 for 15% off your order! 

Here’s some of the looks I put together with the tanks I got 🙂
