They are thoughtfully designed with love for busy moms by a dedicated mom. Their …

Jamie Campbell metallic flats

As the summer quickly comes to an end. The Hiveley team is currently celebrating one last family HURRAH! We have a yearly camping tradition with a couple other families. I must admit I’m not really the ‘camping’ type. My idea of camping is RVing ~ more along the lines of glamping really. I have this thing about mosquitoes. I HATE them. And I mean loathe them. I’ve been know to lose my …

Small Style

Cate Mezyk - August 23, 2016

The response to our kids’ selection has been incredible… you keep buying it all so we had to bring more in! Seriously, it’s all crazy cute. My girls keep begging me to let them take it all home, but so far I’ve only caved on one pair of leggings each. And they’re pretty happy about that, since the leggings are just $10 (nope, not a …

Crochet sweater in black

It’s here. I’m not ready for it, but nonetheless, I need to be prepared. Sweater weather. Well, maybe it’s not here just yet, but it’s coming people. And it’s supposed to be BAAAAD this year. Those almanac peeps – they’ve said so. As in, you’re going to need all the sweaters you can get this winter. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered. Literally. Starting with this …

Today I’m sharing a blog post from a friend of mine. Linda Swanson. I met this soft spoken yet elegant lady last October while visiting Italy. While I adore keeping up with her life via her blog, it was a recent post that hit home. I will be sharing snippets of her post but please go visit the full article here.  It’s a privilege to know this …

Love is Patient, Love is Kind

Cate Mezyk - August 16, 2016

There is a lot of icky stuff going on in the world, isn’t there? Every day the news screams the list of all the bad from the day before. It’s exhausting really. I’m thinking that we need a little more love in our lives. Perhaps if we all had this shirt (conveniently available in three colors 😉 ), we might all choose a little more …

On Being Braver

Cate Mezyk - August 11, 2016

You know how sometimes you read something, and suddenly it’s like you’ve been punched in the gut… in a really good way? The other day my friend Krista (a missionary living in Swaziland – you can read about my trip out there here) posted this photo, and it was like it was meant for me. Those words – “Do not pray for the hard things …

Ready for Back To School with Camo, Tassels and Fringe

Camo Dress with tassel accessories-7

I’ve up’ed my game lately. At least in my children’s minds that is. It’s not the years of wiping butts or faces. Or the sleepless nights playing nurse to my sickly little ones. Or even the fun shopping sprees for BTS clothing. Nope. None of that matters to my girls. What does? Well, turns out my girls enjoy TV. And even better – they love …
