Thursday Three- Favorite School Clothes Shop

Thursday Three

Emily’s Pick- I absolutely love to shop! Especially this time of year because there are so many sales going on. I love boutiques, but here in Utah, it seems everyone shops from the same ones so I try to avoid those during this time.  I would have to say my go to clothing place though is Forever 21. Although their stores are global, I can always find unique pieces that are fairly good quality that no one else I know has. My favorite shirt to this day is from there and I got it three years ago.

Karli’s Pick – Back to school shopping is a blast for me, especially when my sister, mom and I shop together.  I love going to the What a Woman Wants show here in Utah.  The one I go to for my back to school shopping is held in September at the South Towne Expo Center.  I love this expo because it has so many different options and variety of clothes. I get asked all the time where I buy my clothes and this is the spot I tell people to go to.

Meghan’s Pick – Everywhere I shop is usually hit or miss for me. Sometimes I will find the world in clothing and sometimes I end up leaving empty handed. My favorite store for clothes is H&M following that is Forever 21 and recently I have been shopping at Gap after never having gone in a Gap in my life but I have actually had some pretty good finds!

DIY Mugs

Mr Mug

For our girls camp this year we made our own mugs.  It was super easy and everyone was able to make their own unique.  I ended up making mine for my new apartment for my husband.  These are also great to give as a gift!


Mugs (I bought mine at The Dollar Tree)




Clean your mug so that it has no stains or marks

Draw in sharpie however you want your design to look.

I had one girl at camp use tape to make lines around her cup to help her make stripes.

Stripped Mug

I made mine for my future husband and so I made mine say “Mr” on one side and “Hello there Handsome” on the other.  On the handle of the mug I wrote our wedding date and I drew a heart on the bottom inside as well.  I love how they turned out.

The great thing about the sharpie is that if you mess up, just take some water and paper towels and it washes right off.

After you have your design – bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.  It sets the marker to be permanent and you have a wonderful mug that can be washed without being ruined.
