Savannah's Candy Kitchen

I have had these photos on my phone of Savannah’s Candy Kitchen for the longest time, but haven’t posted about this old-fashioned candy because I couldn’t remember the name of it but it came to me out of the blue today – you gotta love it when that happens! Contrary to how the show Nashville portrays everyday living here walking around and shooting the breeze just because isn’t actually a thing unless you work downtown or are there for a purpose otherwise you visit downtown for sporting events, concerts, or a fun night here and there, etc. so I haven’t had a good opportunity to walk back over to the candy shop to see what the name of it is, but I am so glad I finally remembered it!

Back at the end of December I was wasting time in downtown Nashville before the Music City Bowl concert/pre-party kickoff and stumble into the cutest candy shop I have seen around Nashville. It was freezing outside that night and the atmosphere in this shop was perfect for a cold December night. Plus it reminded me of the Ole Smoky Candy Kitchen in Gatlinburg, TN. I used to visit some as a child; a sense of nostalgia always seems to be so perfect around the holiday season.

If you are from Nashville or ever visit Savannah’s Candy Kitchen is the place to go for a sweet fix! Savannah’s Candy Kitchen offers salt water taffy {my favorite}, pralines, hand-made candy, hand-dipped candy, caramel apples, ice cream, gelato, and basically any other sweet thing that you can imagine. I loved how when I walked into the Candy Kitchen it felt like I stepped back in time a few decades because of their old-fashioned décor; they even have a toy train attacked to their ceiling that runs around. Oh and did I mention that Savannah’s Candy Kitchen literally has barrels full of candy and of course some candy boxes wrapped with a bow, of course.

Madewell In Nashville

If you are from Nashville or live in Nashville you know all too well that we do not have the best of shopping. Granted the shopping scene has improved within the past few years with the opening of Nordstrom, the Hill Center {I honestly don’t know what I did before Anthropologie}, and a few other stores. Luckily another good store, Madewell, is being added to the Green Hiils Mall on Tuesday!

J. Crew is Madewell’s parent company so I think it is a safe bet to make that if you enjoy J. Crew Madewell just might be up your alley. J. Crew and Madewell seem to visually overlap in some areas but Madewell has made an effort to carve out their own style to set them apart from other stores. They seem to have a more casual, trendy look than J. Crew but at the same time they have some great classic pieces and items that can easily be dressed up or down.

Personally I love their sweaters, skirts, and of course their shirts. Madewell even have a Barbour Ursula Pullover on their website that I have been lusting after for a few weeks now. Here are a few of my favorite items from the Madewell website.

Sunday Night Thought


Stunningly Blue

I actually had planned to set this post live for Saturday morning. Unfortunately my Internet was not working yesterday morning and had other obligations throughout the day. I honestly have no idea how people got by before the Internet came about; I think I would have had withdrawals if not for my phone. As the old saying goes better late than never!

In my world there is not such thing as too much blue, especially light blue. It is such a peaceful and calming color and it is associated with most of my favorite thing: the beach, ocean and any other body of water, a clear sunny day, spring, blue willow dishes, and of coursed blue dresses because I am blonde with fair skin so blue is definitely my go-to outfit color of choice.

I have recently found some pins on Pinterest of some blue rooms and things {such a surprise, I know}. I had to share with you some of stunning blue rooms and place I have come across. Ummm… can we start with that blue and white house above… I normally gravitate towards white houses but that house is just so stunning and timeless – I think I just found my new dream house; who could resist those large windows and balcony. Here are a few of my recent blue and white pins from Pinterest.

“What we have to remember is that we can still do anything. We can change our minds. We can start over. The notion that it’s too late to do anything is comical. It’s hilarious. We can’t, we must not lose this sense of possibility because in the end, it’s all we have.”
