Y’all- I’m ecstatic that it’s Friday.  I am, really.  And this is a happy post- but am I the only one who bawled my eyes out last night watching Parenthood?!  Matt and I love Julia and Joel and to be honest, we felt like we related to them a lot- but they are breaking my heart right now.  Come on, Joel!

Okay now that’s out of my system- let’s do this!


ONE I am SO EXCITED because our annual college girlfriend trip is officially on the calendar!!! (!!!!!) My sweet friends live all over the country now and I have been pleasantly surprised with our ability to keep up with each other.  We meet every other week on Google hangout if we can make it, but being able to squeeze their necks is something I crave.  The super fun part for me is they are coming to Wilmington!!  Some with baby in tow!!!  I cannot wait to play hostess and show them around my new home.  No amount of exclamation points can accurately describe my joy in anticipation.

This came in the mail this week.  Let’s just call it a birthday gift to myself.  Y’all know how much I wanted this/ needed any kind of planner to stay organized.  Then, Brittany posted there were only 4 remaining.  I jumped on that one!  And now it’s here and it’s glorious.  Yay!

It is supposed to be frigid, but sunny weather here this weekend [by my standards].  Along with my big girl pants- I’ll be donning lots of layers to brave the winter cold in hopes of exploring the area with my sweetie!  Our weekends off together are usually few and far between so we try to make the most of it.  I doubt there will be any beach walking since it is 4 times windier- but we will see what we can get into!

Have you been to the Target $1 section yet?  Because the adorable Valentine’s stuff is going quickly!  I typically lean more toward the side of making my own cards for V-day, but when they are this cute and inexpensive- yes please!  They have materials to make your own, too.  I know it’s not even February yet, but the section is almost cleared out at my local store so you might want to check yours out.

If you missed it yesterday, Nina from Flowers in my Hair and I are linking up on Tuesday and we would love for you to join us!  We hope it will be a great way to discuss our resolutions year-round and serve as motivation to not be just another statistic when it comes to breaking them.  After all, we made these because they mean something to us, right?  Great!  So will you join us??


Okay you know the drill- join me in linking up with AprilDarciNatasha, and Christina for your five!

Happy weekend, y’all!

Good as Gold

There have been so many fashion trends this season.  I feel like, for the most part, they have been relatively risky.  No longer can you both embrace a trend and remain in your comfort zone.  Am I the only one who feels this way?  With that said, I have loved about 93% of what I’ve seen.

From the new neutral: leopard, to faux fur, to leather galore, to print-mixing, to plaid for days, to layers upon layers, to stacked jewels, to GOLD.  Did I miss any?  I’m sure I did!  But what I think makes me the happiest about all these is it only requires one subtle change, one “piece of flare” added to any outfit to jazz it up.

Then again, there are those of us who choose to go overboard sometimes; but once you are freed from your comfort zone, it really is difficult to go back.

So that brings me back to my original point: one of my favorite trends.  Gold.  GOLD. Gold. Is there anything flashier?  I submit not.  And it’s everywhere these days.  I’ve put together some of my favorite options which have been hard to ignore when I am supposed to be elfing for everyone else.  Even better: it’s not just limited to your wardrobe.

Maybe I went a little crazy with the accessories- what can I say?  They are that little something to brighten up any outfit and are typically less expensive.  I’m thinking there should be a lot of glitz and sparkle in your NYE outfit this year!

Do you feel like you’re on gold overload?  Nah, I didn’t think so 😉 Anything I left out that you are loving about this trend?  Please share!

Stocking Stuffers!


Here I am again with another edition of my favorite things this year- this time with some stocking-stuffer appropriate gifts.

Screen shot 2013-11-26 at 8.47.25 AM{1} Garden & Gun’s The Southerner’s Handbook:  I died when this became available.  I cannot express just how excited I am when my new issue of G&G arrives every 2 months, so I was swooning over this handbook.  It’s both ridiculous and amazing at the same time.  

{2} Gold Tassel Necklace: BrinaBox has this on major sale.  I would never be able to get it at its original price, but can you beat this sale?  This would be a wonderful addition to my growing collection of necklaces.  And these tassel necklaces just about go with everything.

{3} Leopard Scarf: Again with BrinaBox.  Leopard is my favorite neutral of the season, but surprisingly, I’m still without a scarf in this print.  Granted, I have amassed more scarves over the years than any sane person should, but recently I’ve been trying to scale down and this one would [just like the necklace above] go with so much in my closet!

{4} Annual Christmas PJs:  From my beloved Target, I can’t wait to get cozy in some new Christmas PJs.

{5} Rifle Paper Co TYs: Gold Gold Gold.  It’s always appropriate to write thank yous.  No matter what.  These are super chic and can be used for any occasion.  Rifle Paper Co does it again.  Can you tell I have a stationery obsession?!

{6} Gold Starbucks Sleeve: It’s a special treat these days to enjoy some Starbucks coffee drinks, and this sleeve would make it even more sweet.  I could even use it with my homemade coffee drinks at work just to jazz it up a bit.

{7} Starbucks Gift Card: a duh.

What are some of your ideas for stuffers?  Join us today!  And thanks again to Cheers Y’all and Down with the Dearmore’s for hosting!!

xoxo, heather
