hello summer With Memorial Day behind us it's officially summertime! Woot woot! Bring on the sunshine and the watermelon. I mean, that's the best part of summer, right? Maybe with a little kick? I can't wait for picnics in the park, summer nights on the patio, and hanging out poolside (ya know, with 85 spf and prolly in the shade... hey, I'm Irish).

Planning this Dive into Summer event with Madewell has me even more excited about this time of year. Every part of the evening has a touch of summer, from the snacks to the party favors... I've had so much fun getting creative with the details. I CANNOT WAIT to share them with you.

If you're in Colorado, come hang out, girrrl. RSVP to artsocialonline@gmail.com to snag your spot and get your summer fiesta on!

What's your favorite thing about summer?

madewell-event-with-artsocial Oh friends. You know how much I love Madewell... and guess what?? We're having a party!! I'm beyond stoked to team up with Madewell in Park Meadows to throw a summer party for my Denver crew. Someone pinch me. Seriously.

Join us on June 6th for my favorite local sips from the Backyard Soda Co. and the cutest summer snacks. Not to mention some rad styling à la Madewell.

It's free, it's chill. Come hang out anytime from 6pm-9pm, try on your favorite summer items, and get your instagram on... oh there will be a hashtag and P.S. there are rumors of a photo lounge with awesome props, but you didn't hear that from me. Okay you DID and it's going to be RAD.

RSVP to artsocialonline@gmail.com to snag your spot (aka your party favor)! Friends + family are welcome! The more the merrier, yo.


Ain't no party like a Madewell + artsocial party... woot woot! See you soon!


eat drink create Guys, it's here! Tonight artsocial and The Proper Pinwheel are having a party. Get ready for EAT DRINK CREATE, y'all.

I couldn't have picked a better partner in crime for this event. Boy, do we have an awesome little evening planned. Snacks, drinks, a little diy, and a majorly awesome swag bag that I'm super stoked about. I can't wait for everyone to open them. This must be how parents feel on Christmas morning...

Planning this party makes me so proud to be part of the blogging community. The striped straws, the washi tape, the instagrams, the sheer excitement over tissue paper fringe - it's all a little silly and wonderful and I love every bit of it. We're a special tribe, us bloggers. I love you guys. Never change, k?

Planning this party also makes me realize how special and important it is to connect in person. I think part of being happy is having incredible, like-minded people around you. Those people you can share your passions with, those who totally get it when you're upset about google analytics or a hashtagging mishap. Here's to spending more time (IRL) with our crews!

Follow along on twitter and instagram (@erin_artsocial) for a sneak peek at EAT DRINK CREATE! And stay tuned for a full recap... oh you know I'll share everything.

It’s Thursday and that means it’s time for the Be Happy linkup! Join the happiness conversation below and on Facebook!
