I had never heard of Happiness Boutique – boy was I excited to find a new playground to shop! (if you’re feeling brave, check it out!). I was overwhelmed by all the awesome products Happiness Boutique had to offer. (By the way, they host giveaways twice a month – yes please!)
After much toiling and trying not to spend every penny I’d ever made, I decided I needed a good choker and a good ear cluster – these were things I didn’t have and it was time to invest. Right? I FELL IN LOVE with the Forget-me-Not flower cluster – SO SPARKLY! I was worried it would be heavy. It’s not. I was worried it would look weird. It doesn’t. Basically, it’s a total gorgeous win and it was SUPER affordable.
I also fell in love with this lace choker – because chokers are so in. Hello 90’s!
I went to check out and realized they weren’t local – then I started worrying that these I’d fallen in love with items that would cost an appendage in shipping. WRONG. Free shipping. Happiness Boutique for the win!!

As for the shirt, I’ve always had a thing for embroidered shirts – they are so unique and fun. I found myself wanting certain words and certain colors, but could never find exactly what I was looking for. Finally, the thought came to me, “Why don’t you make it?” Duh, right?
I’ve wanted rainbow colors since forever. I’ve always loved the combination. Then I really wanted to word “Mamacita” on there – it has been my word of the month. I call my girls that and I consider myself that. It’s a must, right?
Instructions: (Sorry no pictures!)
I found a font I liked.
Used a water erase marker and traced Mamacita on my white shirt.
Picked the colors I wanted.
A few sewing tips:
Use an embroidery hoop to keep the shirt tight. (trust me, you’ll need it)
Put a piece of cardboard in the middle of the shirt so you don’t catch the back of the shirt.
Try not to go too fast. (Am I the only one that starts a project and then gets so excited for the finished product that I struggle to finish? It’s the strangest thing!)
