Gift Guide ... Gifts By Price Point

Happy Saturday!  I hope your weekend is bright, sunny, and full of something fun. I was supposed to be in Thomasville this weekend for the Wild Life Arts Festival but the Hubs isn't feeling well and I am happy to stay home and be with him.  So instead of my original plans I am getting ahead on work, organizing for the week ahead and taking advantage of the extra time at home.  So far this morning I have enjoyed two wonderful cups of coffee with the Hubs in bed and we just watched the new Netflix release The Princess Switch.  It was so sweet.  I consider the cancelled plans to be a blessing and I will never be sad about being given a blessing.  ❤


Punch For Thanksgiving

Anyone else thinking of how amazing next Thursday's meal will be?  Since we are staying home this year and avoiding traveling (and germs) we are all about the meal, the family time, and how we spend the day.  I was group texting the family earlier this week about what everyone wanted as their favorites and when I was adding in mine I decided that one of the things I was most interested in would be an evening movie (any recommendations?) with a big charcuterie board and some yummy punch.  Well, that is after a lunch of turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes + cranberry sauce which is my favorite part of the meal.  🦃


Gift Guide ... Shopping For Him

Oh, the men in our life.  We love them so.  Whether they are our spouses, fathers, brothers, sons, best friends or family they mean everything to us. I know for me I have such a special place in my heart for all the males in my life.  Just like this Gift Guide For Her I have taken great care to choose some amazing gifts you will want to purchase for that special set of males in your life.


Bows, Tassels + Bees

Anyone else super excited about celebrating the holidays in all its glorious fashion?  I love getting dressed up and doing things like coffee with friends, attending parties, and sitting fireside with holiday cocktails with those I love.  I have been very into the classics lately ... as in classic music, classic movies and wearing classic pieces, even more than usual.  I have found myself craving more loafers, more classic sweaters, and an all black outfit with a twist.

ps ... how amazing are those shoes?  All the details of how to create them are here in this blog post!


Gift Guide ... Shopping For Her

The days of me being done with all my shopping by December 1 are rolling along perfectly and I am doing really well getting things crossed off my list.  There are some things I have purchased and others I have marked to make sure I snag on Black Friday knowing for sure they will be on the best sale.  Last week I attended a local Holiday Gift show and knocked off four gifts.  I love buying some personal for those closest to me and I got a darling bunch of things at the booth of an artist.  She was darling and helped me choose a few things that are perfect for a few friends.  I am super excited.


The Perfect Fall Table

Happy Monday!! I hope your weekend was amazing.  It is pouring rain in Atlanta and is quite chilly, but the weekend was a stunning one with blue skies and a wonderful breeze.  I have been dying to set a table on the deck and eat outside.  I love alfresco dining, it just makes the meal and time so much better for me.  It was quite chilly on Saturday so I waited until Sunday to plan an outside meal.  We have such pretty falls in Atlanta and I wanted to make sure we took advantage of the beautiful days.  I will say I had to pick quite a few leaves off the table when the wind blew, but it was worth every second to enjoy the incredible weather.  I don't know about you, but for me eating outside just makes the food taste even better!  🍊


Gift Giving With Beautycounter

In keeping with my "all shopping done by December 1" I have had to stay on top of my long list.  This week I ordered all my monogram gifts I needed for my shopping and now I am ready to tackle all of those people on the list that I am gifting beauty products.  I am so excited to show you what I am buying and how I am pairing it to take six gifts off my lists.  I can't tell you who I bought it for ... because some of those people actually read this daily and I need to keep the surprise of the day under the radar.  😘


Thanksgiving Vibes

I can't believe that Thanksgiving in mere weeks away, wasn't I just whining about the end of summer just days ago?  We usually eat at my brother in laws house for Thursday and then spend the rest of the weekend at home eating left overs and soaking up the first Christmas feels but this year I think we will be here.  With all the flu germs it is just better to keep the exposure at a minimum for the Hubs.  We shall see, those plans are subject to change.
