BUT REALLY THO??! Where is spring?? I am just waiting patiently while my wedges cry in the 
corner. LOL --Nate and I decided to venture out for a little bit to enjoy the beauty that is SNOW... however it was truly a storm so we didn't last in it long. I wore my "Palm Springs" sweatshirt as a sign of my frustration and dreams of hoping my umbrella takes flight and then drops me off on a beach. Wishful thinking - But um yah - I am keeping the spring dreams alive.

 In other news >> Let's talk fashion shall we:
My sweater in all its spring glory is $25 on SALE... woot woot // My Denim - straight up changed my life.. the fit is like every girls dream -- #GIMMETHATSTRETCH // And finally my Hunter boots which are my spring/fall/winter/summer/rainyday/snowday everyday of my life essentials are on SALE -- I found them for $50 off!!

Blush is THE COLOR of spring right now so if you are looking for a mega cute umbrella like mine you can grab it from this uber fab company called Certain Standard! The handle is cork! Truly its the most gorgeous umbrella I have ever owned. I love them because they are a brand for people "who give a damn about the things they carry and the impact they have on this world we all share." That’s why they donate a percentage of every purchase to organizations helping make our world a better, brighter place. Shop their cute umbrellas HERE.

Everything I am wearing is linked below:

Hope you are staying warm wherever you are and just know that if you are laying by a beach my jealousy is NEXT LEVEL.

GIVEAWAY: Stop The Drop - The Phone Case YOU NEED

Let's see how many times have you dropped your cell phone in your life? Don't answer that. I already know the answer-- because if you are anything like me  -- odds are you've dropped your phone TOO MANY TIMES TO COUNT. In my world that also means: a cracked screen, a phone saturated in toilet water (yes, I dropped my phone in a toilet once #FACT) it can just be the world's worst day ever when you hear the phone hit the floor. Then you look down at the phone praying it isnt broken into a million pieces. Let's just take a look at my former iphone that I recently traded in for my new Iphone X ....I give you below: EXHIBIT A// yup. dropped it. cracked it. million pieces. I rest my case.

So let's #stopthedrop shall we?! I went on the hunt for a new phone case that was going to help me do that and randomly discovered Loopy Cases. I know many of you automatically assume.... this must be sponsored but it's not. Full disclosure: I reached out to the company myself and they did send me one to try out for use BUT I will tell you that I would buy this phone case 4 times over!

First the loopy case holder that pops out the back is malleable so it will lay down flat in your pocket. The case is smooth and feels nice to the touch and it actually keeps me from dropping it. I was carrying groceries home yesterday while holding my iphone in my hands and for the first time in my whole life I didn't have a care in the world because I knew I wasn't going to drop my phone. 

The cases also come in a ton of colors and BONUS - I am doing a giveaway tonight on my instagram!

One lucky winner will get their own loopy case of choice.
1.  Just follow me @alexbutlertv 
2.  Follow @loopycases on Instagram

And if you can't wait or even if you don't win here is a discount code for you to use for 10% off!!

Hope this helps those of you who truly need a case to protect your phone but also one to help you keep from dropping it.

5 Spring Tops From Target You Need Now

Well let's just start with the fact that winter storm number 2 arrives in PA tonight -- so I am not excited about that! It took me two hours to get out of the supermarket today so I know the end of the world is coming! LOL However, shopping for spring does tend to make me feel better about the fact that I will be quarantined to my home for 24 hours! I prayed for snow this year but I think I am ready for sunny days now. How bout you?!?  

So these days I have been spending a ton of time at Target because the deals are too good and styles are right on trend. Gingham is clearly a 2018 spring/summer staple. If you hate gingham... I'm sorry because it is LITERALLY EVERYWHERE. The off the shoulder trend is one I truly love so having the gingham and off the shoulder combo is my fave. That first top is only $24! I am in a small for reference (I sized down). You can't beat the deals.

I have linked all the tops below (just click the one you want to shop):
P.S. I would order online because there were very limited sizes when I was shopping in store.

Oh-- and if you love Target you should also check out 

Happy Shopping Beauties!

Ruffles & Stripes

First things First - 
That asymmetrical top from my first pic that is off the shoulder is truly a DREAMMM = $49. So cute and trendy. Ruffles, off the shoulder and stripes all in one = a win! Shop it HERE.

In other news it has been truly doom and gloom around here the last few weeks. Dark skies, overcast, cold. Just. awful. Finally, we got a peak of sun today and I rushed outside to enjoy it only to be quickly met by rainy overcast skies again! To say that I am ready for spring is an UNDERSTATEMENT. HAHA! It's funny how much I love winter when it starts but I am ready for it to go towards the end.

I have been doing a lot of spring shopping and stripes are truly my jam right now. I honestly can't get enough of them! I remember when I was in high school I despised them - like I refused to buy them ever because I was convinced they were not flattering. I was totes wrong! But also I am so glad that our fashion tastes change because my appreciation for stripes is ANOTHER LEVEL.

P.S. Has it been raining a lot where you are?

Valentine's Day: 5 Things I've learned about Love

Nate and I started dating in November 2012 - I interviewed him on my TV show on FOX in Florida, gave him my number  (Yes, so BOLD LOL) and well the rest is history. Actually-- it's a long story how it all came together but let's just say once we met we were hooked on each other and truly never stopped hanging out. I felt like I had known him my whole life after one week -- so I am a true believer in soul mates and fate. 

I definitely don't have the handbook to love but I have figured a few things out:

1. Be each others cheerleaders -- Anything I dream for Nate encourages me to do! I tell him everyday that he can do anything and I will support him. I think this is the best part of being a team. We are always lifting each other up to pursue and do the things we love. I think it is so important to have a partner who builds you up and doesn't bring you down.

2. Make Time For Each Other// Date night is my fave! Nate and I have a regular date night that we schedule for every Friday night. We decided we would try to always do this so that we never stop dating. It keeps the spark alive and truly keeps your relationship blossoming!

It is amazing how you can look at a person and love them so much and think MAN he is hot! AND then 5 minutes later you are like um, yah --you make me insane! HAHA. I truly believe this is what makes you best friends. If you were the same people it wouldn't work. SO just know that the YOU DRIVE ME CRAZY - is so necessary! It is our differences that make us perfect for each other.

Now for the mind reading: I always used to assume Nate knew what I wanted when we first started dating. I would say "OMGH, he knows... he should know... I am not going to tell him because..." I have realized if you want something you NEED to tell him! haha NEVER ASSUME they already know or should know.. cause they don't.

4. Do things together!
I love fashion/social media & Nate loves reading REDDIT.
Sometimes we would each rather do what we love to do, but making an effort to do what the other person wants to do is soooooo huge! I am so stubborn so I will be the first to say I was not always like that. I used to always say "Nate - do what I want to do!" <total baby>  Over time I have learned that if you just do a little but of what your partner wants to do it makes for happy days! <3 If he wants to go to a football game and you would rather see a ballet show... make sure you make your way to a football game once in awhile and he should try out the ballet! You get what I mean!

5. Get Over it & Never ever go to sleep mad.
Grudges should never be held on to. This was one of my biggest faults. I used to let things bother me so much that I couldn't just let them go. Choose your battles!! I have realized that the best arguments are those ones where you say why you're mad, acknowledge it, and let it go. <I am still working on this one.>

Really ask yourself does this thing I am mad about... REALLY matter? Will it matter that he didn't pick up his towels off the floor in ten years? haha NO. So let it go.

Yah know that old saying "Happy Wife - Happy Life" ... I don't believe in it. I think you both need to be happy. Sometimes that means admitting YOU are wrong... (SO TOUGH TO DO!! ha) But it truly makes for the best future. Sometimes ya just gotta say "Sorry, I love you. I was wrong." Kiss and makeup. <3

What are your life love lessons? I would love to know.
Happy Valentines day dolls!
