My daughter came home from five weeks away at her ballet intensive and she spent most of last weekend eating and catching up with friends. Then we rolled right into her thirteenth birthday with a Lilly-themed pool party for just a few dear school friends.

Her birthday is just three days apart from her friend, Josey, so we combined the celebration. I whipped up some digital invitations:
Josey’s mom, my talented friend Ashly, monogrammed notebooks and macaron boxes for the girls, too, and found the pineapple earrings in the above picture (they were $1 at Walmart but we dressed them up!).
Heads up: I recently bought my girl a Clarisonic Mia as part of her birthday and wanted to mention that Nordstrom has a super deal on them right now as part of their Anniversary Sale. I’ve had a Mia 2 for a few months now and it has made a huge difference in how soft and smooth my skin feels! I even bought a brush for my husband so he can use it, too. I did a ton of research before I purchased because there are so many off-brands out there that are less expensive, but this one is worth every penny.
I figure thirteen is the perfect age to focus on skincare and beauty from the inside out, don’t you?
