It’s been a long time coming…

We’ve re-branded!!!! We started Truly Lovely back in November of 2010. We have loved it here. We have thrived here. But after blogging for so long under the Truly Lovely name it’s starting to feel less and less like us.


It’s been a long time coming, a long time planning and scheming, but we’ve decided to take our brand and move it to a new space. Kassarie & Kayliray. It’s us, just us, as we are. What we love, who we love.

We are going to keep Truly Lovely active so our old posts, pins from our old content, etc will still be available to us and you guys, but from now on we won’t be blogging here… We hope you’ll move with us. We’d REALLY hate to lose any of our longtime blogging friends. We love you guys!

30th Birthday Present Idea

It’s about that time… my girl friends that are close in age are starting to hit the BIG 30!!! The first one turned 30 yesterday so I scoured Pinterest for a fun idea to help her celebrate this milestone birthday. I loved this Young at Heart turning 30 basket from , so I hit the stores to make my own version. You can see another spin on it from Loves of Life here.

I purchased a cute basket to contain all her birthday goodies, wrapped it in ribbon and labeled it with the young at heart saying…

“Kayce, now that you’re 30 you may be wondering where the years went. Well this emergency kit is filled with items to keep you feeling young at heart!”

Milestone Birthday Gift Idea

Then I made a little label to match each little goodie inside. I even if you’re in a hurry and don’t want to create one yourself. Just be sure to edit the name to that of your recipient. πŸ˜‰

30th Birthday Gift Idea

Take a Bubble Bath – I attached it to a bottle of fancy bubble bath.
Play Dress Up – Hoop earrings and a pretty bracelet
Have a Slumber Party – That’s a pretty little satin nighty rolled into a ball and wrapped with ribbon. πŸ˜‰
Drink from a Sippy Cup – How cool is the wine “glass” with a straw that I found! You could do any kind of cup with a straw though.
Draw a Picture – A cute journal.
Give Yourself a Makeover – I wrapped ribbon around a set of different lip glosses and nail polish.

Gotta say, if I were turning thirty, or any other milestone birthday, I would be thrilled to get something like this…. πŸ˜‰ Hint, hint… Not that my birthday is anytime soon.

How have you celebrated your milestone birthdays? Best gift received??

FYI, we’re linking this to these fun parties.
