Summer Party Glassware

In the South we are all about tradition, family, and passing our treasured possessions down through many generations. I have to say, some Southerners have some glassware that is just absolutely to. die. for. that was their great-great-grandmother’s. Any holiday, special occasion, or family event all the family glassware, silver, plates, etc. are out on the table and ready to be used! However, the last thing you want to do is have a shindig outside of that and have one of your treasured possessions get broken {this could cause a Southern woman to swoon or have an outright fit}. So keep in mind whenever you have a shindig use some glassware that you won’t be upset about if it gets broken; after all it’s not really a party till something breaks. So let the good times roll this summer! Here are the perfect glasses for any occasion, and any refreshment would look simply fabulous in them! Click on the name of the glass for the link. 
Now honey, this may be listed as wine glasses, but I promise any refreshment will look great in these glasses! Coca-Cola, Sweet Tea, Lemonade, even a frozen treat would look great in these glasses…Orange Sorbet with Prosecco poured over it sounds good to me!

Back In Black

Down in the South we love to spend our summer free time on, in or by the water! Ocean, lake, pool, it doesn’t matter we love all bodies of water, although I have to admit my personal favorite is the ocean! Every woman, Southern or not, has their favorite little black dress…well I am here to tell y’all that every girl needs their favorite little black bikini or swimsuit as well! So this summer when you are enjoying your time by the water add a little classic, timeless twist with a black bikini! Here are some of my favorite little black bikinis, click on the name of the suit for the link.

Young At Heart

One of the most important things in life is happiness, and what you do to achieve that is up to you. As we become older and busier trying to keep up with a fast-pace life and going all the time, it seems that sometimes we lose sight of the things that truly make us happy. The South is one of the best places to stay young at heart and enjoy the beauty that is all around. Laughter, Imagination, and Dreams are the key ingredients for happiness, motivation, and to stay young at heart.

Croakies & The South

Summer time in the South means spending time on the lake, ocean, pool, and anywhere else there is a body of water. The last thing you want to do on those hot sunny days is misplace a pair of sunglasses, so in the South we all wear croakies! Croakies have become a Southern staple, they are cute, stylish, and come in oh so many different colors! Here are a few of my favorite croakies, click on the name for the link.
