Currant Slash Tee

I found another cozy-chic top with fun detailing at Express a few weeks ago, and now I just want to scoop up all the colors. This currant color is such a beautiful bold color that it pairs perfectly with casual denim or my winter whites. Plus a pop of leopard is always a great idea!

Outdoor Weekending

Another beautiful weekend has come and gone....... I always used to get this holiday off, and H is even off today, but sadly I could not extend the fun into today. Super jealous of everyone with today off! That extra day makes such a huge difference!



We kicked off Friday at one of my favorite spots where everything on the happy hour menu is 3 for $7 - apps and drinks before moving across the street for one last cocktail before heading home to baby girl. Oh and of course purchasing tickets to see Metallica in July, this may be one of their last ever tours so we knew we needed to jump on it.



*Sitting outside enjoying a cocktail in February will never get old to this northeast transplant*




Saturday was all about sleeping in (yes Serena is my lil' angel and lets us sleep in), running errands, and then a relaxing movie night. Sunday, I hit up the hot mess of chaos that are the outlets to take advantage of the holiday weekend sales before heading over to a friend's house to celebrate her son's birthday. I picked up this polka dotted pretty at the Kate Spade outlet, where they're having a 70% off everything sale through today. Run... don't walk and go take advantage!

Weekending + Giveaway

Hello there Monday, you sure popped up again fast! Another fabulous weekend in the books, the perfect combo of relaxation and fun gone too quickly.


I'm loving my latest voxbox from Influenster which included two of the new highliners from the Marc Jacobs Beauty collection. I received #41 (Earth)quake and #43 (Brown)ie which are a dark brown and a medium brown respectively. The collection has a range of colors from bold and fun to subtle and neutral. The looks you can create with these crayons are endless! They're great for defining the eye, or smudging to create a more dramatic look for a night out. I love how pigmented they are, and how they'll last up to 12 hours which will take you from day to night.

Scenes from the weekend:


I had to try out the edible cookie dough that Katie posted about last week, and man alive it's dangerous! I had to restrain myself from eating the whole jar over the weekend. I found it at Target, and they also had birthday cake and peanut butter flavors. You're welcome....


Saturday night, we headed to downtown Orlando for the first time in what felt like forever since a friend's brother was in town and wanted to check out Wall Street. The area is closed off from traffic, and once you're admitted you have access to several bars with live music and drink specials, and there are bars in the middle under the stars as well. It tends to be a younger crowd for us old peeps, but we had a great time.

A few weeks ago I mentioned that my mom was finally opening an Etsy shop to showcase all of her wonderful creations. Just to name a few items she's handmade for me over the years ~ me and my cousin's flower girl dresses in our aunt's wedding, my junior prom dress, my wedding veil, Serena's bedding including the crib blanket, sheets, and dust ruffle, the tutu and headband she wore going home from the hospital, a star baby bunting, hand knitted baby hat, booties, and jacket, and the prettiest infinity scarves. She also hand-makes custom tuffet stools which is a labor of love. I'm so excited that she's finally showcasing her talent, and wanted to introduce you all to her newly opened Etsy shop Nana Faith Creations.

Treat Yourself Friday

Happy Friday! My favorite day to treat myself is Friday, the coffee is that much sweeter and of course there's always champs come 5:00.
I had fun stopping in Bubbleology this week, and trying out some bubble teas. I had heard of bubble tea, but had never tried it and now I'm hooked! All the drinks are handmade to order with freshly brewed tea and are 100% vegetarian.

The first thing I noticed as I approached the store was how bright and colorful everything was from the signs, to the decor, and of course the drinks. I'm a kid at heart, and am immediately drawn to pretty things!


I tried both a milk tea and a fruit tea, and they were both equally delish! For the milk tea, I went with coconut and almond flavoring with tapioca bubbles. Even the straws are colorful, and are big enough to fit the fun bubbles at the bottom of your drink.


For the fruit tea, I chose passion fruit with strawberry bubbles that popped. The combo was so refreshing!






Central Florida gals, you can find a Bubbleology in the Florida Mall, and Tampa ladies there's a location at the Citrus Park Mall. There are also locations in Atlanta and Buford for my Georgia girls!
