Sunday Night Thought

 

Links I'm Loving

 How crazy is that in just a few days Memorial Day will be upon us? I still cannot get over how fast this year has gone by… but I am so looking forward to all things red, white, blue, and summer. For now, here are a few links that I am completely loving!

One// Sarah Flint Perfect Emma in Gold Saffiano

Sarah Flint is a shoe and accessories company that made its debut in 2014. I found out about them a few years ago and have been such a fan ever since. These Perfect Emma pumps are so perfect for any summer occasion, and lets face facts, who doesn’t love a gold shoe!? Use my code: SARAHFLINT-BALAURENAID at checkout to receive $50 off your first pair of Sarah Flint shoes!!

 

Two// Magnolia Table, Volume 2

I tried Joanna Gaines’ Minestrone soup over the winter and it was the best minestrone soup I have ever had. Ever since I have been wanting to try a few more of her recipes and recently purchased both of her cookbooks. They are both amazing, but the recipes in the second book just look like a slice of comfort food heaven

 

Three// Lili Lerch x Belle of the Ball Coastal Grandmother Collection

Completely in love with this collection and the whole coastal grandmother trend that is currently happening – it is all very Nancy Myers. If you are on the coastal grandmother vibe than this collection is most definitely for you!

 

Four// Pro Chef & Home Cook Swap Ingredients

Is it just me or does anyone else find cooking shows and cooking anything relaxing? This is such a fun little YouTube series to watch; as you might have guessed from the title a home cook and professional chef switch ingredients and it is always interesting to see what they each make of what they are given

 

Five// Mi Golondrina Francesea Neutral Floral 

For the past few summers I have been such a fan of Mi Golondrina dresses; they are just such an easy something to put on and are perfect for summer. I love how they are starting to incorporate a few new designs into their collection, and I especially love this one shoulder dress. It is just so flattering and perfect for any summer gatherings

What I've Been Watching

 It seems like after a stretch of not much new on television and streaming services that there is suddenly a surge of new shows and movies that are good and have some substance to them. On a similar note, is anyone else ridiculously excited about the new Downton Abbey movie and season 4 of Stranger Things being released at the end of this month?! Lately I have been trying to fill my mind with positive things in general; let’s face facts, there’s only so much negative news and such that one person can take in. I have been so excited to discover a few new shows and movies and rediscover a few old ones! So, I thought it might be fun to share what I have been watching!  

One// The First Lady

Absolutely Love historical anything, so obviously historical tv shows are definitely up my alley. I will admit, I wasn’t too eager to watch ‘The First Lady’, because I am sooooooo tired of politics and hearing about politics {it’s an important topic though and it’s good to be informed, but still…}. I was hooked within the first five seconds of the first episode. ‘The First Lady’ follows the journey of Michelle Obama, Betty Ford {really wish I could be bffs with her!}, and Eleanor Roosevelt on their journey to becoming First Lady and actually assuming the position. If you didn’t love these women before you watched this series, you will love them after! Highly recommend!

 

Two// Julia

Fair warning: if accents irritate you, then this is not a tv series for you, however, if you don’t mind or love an accent, then I highly recommend this new HBOMax series! I absolutely loved this series and have my fingers crossed for a season two. The series tells the story of how Julia Child first started out with her tv cooking series and follows her journey through the first season she hosted ‘The French Chef’. I’m feel safe in saying that she was probably the Martha Stewart of her time {minus everything being perfect 100% of the time}. If you are a fellow Julia Child fan, I cannot recommend this show enough

 

Three// Senior Year

I think this is a movie that we all needed right about now. The news has been so heavy lately and for the past two years it seems like there has constantly been something negative going on, on a world-wide level. I think it’s safe to say that we all need a little a humor and light heartedness in our life right about now. Rebel Wilson does such a great job in this movie, and really brings a fun spirit to the screen. 


Four// Bewitched

I am kind of obsessed with the original Bewitched tv series. I watch it every day when I workout and I am so envious of some of Samantha’s clothes. Some of the fashion is seriously timeless. I love older shows and the fact that the story lines are upbeat and entertaining. 

 

Five//Girls5eva

The new season of Girls5eva just came out and can be streamed on Peacock. To be super honest, this is a pretty mindless show you can just get lost in. Plus, Sara Bareilles is the main character, and who doesn’t love Sara Bareilles?!

Where The Last Rose Blooms

 I was so in need of this type of book. The books I read last month were well written and had well developed storylines, but some of them were honestly a little depressing and some just did not live up to their hype, at least in my opinion. Where The Last Rose Blooms, by Ashley Clark, was such a nice escape at the end of the day. Clark did a lovely job of tying the past and the present together and transitioning between two different time periods. I also really enjoyed how she worked in a nice combination of mystery, history, and developing love stories.

Where The Last Rose Blooms tells the story of two strong women who are separated by 160 years of history. 

 

Alice runs a flower shop in New Orleans with her aunt, who has been by her side ever since Alice’s mother went missing during Hurricane Katrina. On the night of Valentine’s a handsome man arrives at the flower shop just before closing, causing him and Alice to get off on a tense footing. A little while late, Alice finds herself waiting outside of a restaurant for a double date with her friends and a mystery man they have fixed her up with. To Alice’s surprise she soon discovers that her blind date is the man from her flower shop, and that the flowers were intended for her. After making it through a somewhat awkward dinner he soon wins Alice over and feelings of more than just friends start to bloom between them. 

 

160 years before Alice, Clara was living through her own story during the Civil War in 1861 Charleston. With the encouragement of her cousin and without her father’s knowledge, Clara becomes an abolitionist. She becomes a spy for the union side with the assistance of a slave, Rose, who works in her family’s home. Like Alice, Clara also finds herself falling in love with a fellow abolitionist. Things soon take an unexpected turn and Clara and Alice are forced to take certain actions, causing a whole other chain of events.

 

Both women are faced with a sense of the unknown, but also with the endless possibilities of the future. I honestly cannot recommend this book enough. Where the Last Rose Blooms is actually the third book in a series, I definitely plan to read the first, but I have to say, I did not feel lost at all in the storyline starting with the third book. Mystery, love, friendship, family, history, a beautifully painted setting, this story has a little something of everything, and will draw you in from the very first page.

Links I'm Loving

 Is it just me or has anyone else felt a bit blah this week? On Wednesday I made the conscious decision to not watch the news, scroll through my Facebook fed {as much}, and to take a little break from checking messages. I feel like there is so much negativity floating around on TV and social media, and then the news is always so depressing {why can’t they ever just throw in a happy story here and there?}, and I honestly feel like all the negativity is starting to rub off on people… I mean, is it just me, or are there more rude drivers than normal? I honestly feel like we should all make the effort to be a little kinder to ourselves, to our friends, family, and the person standing in line next to us at the grocery {or anywhere}. 

At the end of the day everyone has/is going through some thing at different points in their life and some people carry it better, but that doesn’t mean it bothers them any less. I once had someone tell me that my life had been too easy, and they really didn’t know me well enough at all to make that assumption… In my opinion we can either walk through an issue, climb over it, or carry it with us until we are ready to put it down; I personally prefer the first two options. I will say over the past couple years I have come to the conclusion that you can’t always be happy, but you can work towards a point of feeling content, and you can always choose to be kind. I’ll end by saying this: I think we should all make an effort to be a little kinder to ourselves {because we deserve it} and kinder to other people, because you never really know all the details of someone’s life… Now on to something a little lighter – five fabulous links I have come across this week!!

One// Senior Year

Senior Year is the newest Rebel Wilson Movie that was just released on Netflix. I think it is safe to say that we are all in need of a little bit of light-heartedness right about now. I watch this movie earlier and it was such a fun escape! Highly recommend this movie for the weekend, especially if you need a bit of a pick-me-up!

 

Two// Ina Garten Tomato, Mozzarella, and Basil Salad

Fact: Every single Ina Garten recipe I have ever made has turned out fantastically well! This salad just screams summer to me and look so fresh and beautiful. I will be making this in the very near future…


Three// Sarah Flint Grear Sandal

I basically have a love affair with these sandals. They are perfect for Spring, Summer, and early Fall, plus they are so comfortable! I literally have them in four different colors… needless to say, they are my go-to sandals. These are sandals are an investment and something that you will have for years to come. Be sure to use code: SARAHFLINT-BALAURENAID at checkout to receive $50 off your first pair of Sarah Flint shoes!!

 

Four// The First Lady

I have only watched the first episode of this series, but so far, The First Lady is simply amazing. The series follows Michelle Obama, Betty Ford, and Elanor Roosevelt through their journey of entering into and becoming the First Lady. 

 

Five// Hill House Home Swimwear 

I think it is safe to say that Hill House Home is probably best know for the item that first put them on everyone’s radar, the Ellie Nap Dress. A couple days ago Hill House Home just launched their first collection of swimwear, and it is so beautiful. I love how they chose to do a print and a solid in each style and the added details to add a little extra layer details they added. I haven’t purchased one yet {definitely plan to}, but if they are anything like the nap dresses, I’m sure the fit is amazing!

My Recent Favorite Purchases

 I have always felt like April and May are such weird months weather wise, at least in Nashville. It’s hot one day, cold the next, and you are never quite sure what to wear and if your outfit is seasonally appropriate. Personally, when it is warm I lean into summer styles, but I never turn down an opportunity to wear a sweater and leggings when it is chilly enough. I always love seeing/reading what people have recently purchased and what products they use most during a month. So, for today I thought I would share a few items that I have recently purchased and love!

Glossier Super Pure

I am a little late to the whole Glossier scene, but now I am such a fan of their products. I love their serums, but Super Pure is my new favorite. It’s lightweight enough to wear at night along with your face cream or during the day with makeup. The difference this serum make in skin quality over the course of 2 or 4 weeks is just amazing! Honestly cannot recommend this product enough!


Sarah Flint Mirjana Sandals

I have been such a fan of Sarah Flint shoes for years and was so excited to recently have the opportunity to work with the brand. Over the years I have purchased 15 pairs of Sarah Flint shoes, and now that I am working with them and learning more about their process I have fallen even more in love with the Sarah Flint company and their products. The Mirjana Sandal in Amalfi Blue Vachetta {incase you are wondering, I also own this pair in Gold Nappa… } and the color and fit are just stunning! Use my code: SARAHFLINT-BALAURENAID at checkout to receive $50 off your first pair of Sarah Flint shoes!!!

 

J. Crew Broken-in Jersey Maxi Dress

In case you can’t tell, I am a slight fan of blue…I will be wearing this dress at least once a week; it is so soft and flowy, and just perfect for a Southern Summer! It does seem to run a little big, so I would definitely suggest sizing down one size!

LuluLemon Wunder Train High-Rise Short

I honestly was not too big on the whole biker style shorts when they first started to trend a few years ago, but now they are my favorite thing to wear when I workout. I recently purchased Misty Glade in the Wunder Train High-Raise Short and the color is just so beautiful and I love how comfortable they are. If you haven’t purchased from Lulu before be sure to go up at least one size!

 

English Factory Smocked Waist Skirt 

I have worn this skirt so much since it arrived, and I love how versatile it is! It is a wonderful transitional piece. Fits TTS and can be worn with an endless amount of different tops and shoes.

 

APL TechLoom Phantom Sneakers

I feel like these shoes are almost too pretty to wear for a workout… The different colors, weaves, and styles they are available in are just beautiful. I recently purchased this pair and they look so great with leggings, jeans, or short. I usually wear mine to run leggings, but they would definitely make a wonderful workout shoes as well!

April Reading List

 I seriously cannot believe we are already walking though the month of May. I know I have said it before on here, but I feel like the timing of this year is so weird because the months themselves seem so long, but the year has gone by so fast {at least for me} thus far. I will go ahead and admit that I did not read a book I thought was truly great during the month of April. They had their good points, but overall they all feel a little short of expectation. Fingers crossed that my reading selection for May are a little better than the ones I read last month, but for now… onto the books I read in April!

One// The Grace Kelly Dress, by Brenda Janowitz

Full confession: I had never heard of this book before, but when the title popped up in my Audible recommendations, I knew I had to read it, because Grace Kelly’s name was included in the title. This book was actually a pretty fun read. It covered three generations of women who all wore a wedding inspired Grace Kelly’s and the love story that went along with each woman’s life

 

Two// The Cave Dwellers, by Christina McDowell

I have to say, I was not a fan of this book at all… but someone else might love it! I’m honestly really tired of the news, politics, etc. and this book is set in D.C., so naturally this book does involve that element. Aside from that though, I felt like the book had a slanted viewpoint and that there really wasn’t a lot of balance to the storyline. There is also a very detailed murder at the start of the book… McDowell can clearly write and include historical facts to strength her story, but I felt like there was a lot of unnecessary details and side stories that really didn’t go anywhere. On a positive note, I will say that she did a very nice job of describing the physical landscape of D.C.

 

Three// The Girls in the Stilt House, by Kelly Mustain 

Maybe I waited a little too long to read this and my expectation level was just too high, because I have heard really good things about this book, but I wasn’t blown away by the storyline… Two girls form a meaningful bond in a very unconventional way. They come to depend on each other in different ways, and must learn how to navigate a dangerous world of bootleggers and general moral corruptness.

Mother's Day Gift Guide

 This is most definitely a last-minute Mother’s Day Gift Guide. I feel like the months have been so long, but the whole, 2022 has been a quick year. I honestly thought Mother’s Day was next Sunday, and learned a couple of days ago that it is actually this Sunday! Since time is of the essence, most of these items are things you can easily find at your local department store or mall. However, all of these items would make wonderful gifts for any occasions, and would even be great for a treat yourself moment. 

One// Mark & Graham Large Travel Jewelry Case

I love how this Jewelry case can be used for travel or even for everyday use. The color is just so soft and beautiful and I love how the compartments are organized


Two// Sarah Flint Natalie Sling in Stitch Textile

These slings are timeless. Any Sarah Flint shoe is such an investment and a treat for anyone. These are shoes that will be around for years to come and will look simply fabulous with any spring or summer outfit! Use code: SARAHFLINT-BALAURENAID to receive $50 off your first pair of Sarah Flint shoes {code is valid online and in stores} 


Three// Hotel Collection Candle Trio Gift Set

I love how lighting one of these candles is like taking a mini vacation from the comfort of your own home. Each fragrance is inspired by an iconic hotel. Use code: ATOUCHOFSOUTHERNGRACE20 to receive 20% off your purchase!


Four// Veja

These are most definitely the casual running shoe of the moment. They look great with anything from workout clothes to jeans, and even dresses and skirts


Five// Vietri Hibiscus Glass Cobalt Bud Vase

This is hands down one of my most favorite flower vases! It comes in so many colors and always looks so beautiful


Six// Krewe St. Louis Sunglasses

Love these sunglasses. They are such a classic with a modern twist


Seven// Tom Ford Eye Color Quad Eyeshadow Palette

Bronze and golds are always right for any skin tone. This pallet is just dreamy 


Eight// Creed Wind Flowers

Creed is a bit of a splurge, but so worth it. One thing that I appreciate about this brand is that all ingredients are 100% natural so the fragrance never turns bad and develops an alcohol scent. Creed is an iconic brand and even created a signature fragrance back in the day for Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and Jackie Kennedy. Wind Flower is their latest fragrance, and it smells absolutely divine!  


Nine// J. McLaughlin Joyce Rattan Picnic Tote

I am 100% here for the wicker bag movement, and lets face facts, what mom wouldn’t love this summer’s trend


Ten// Tory Burch Lee Radziwill Small Bag

How fabulous is the Lee Radziwill collection?! These classic lines are something anyone would appreciate. I also really adore how these bags can be tailored to fit anyone’s style


Eleven// DryBar Reserve 3-in-1 Interchangeable Blow Dryer

I feel like this would be a perfect gift for any mom, but especially those with very young children. It is basically an all in one hair tool for blow dry to styling, and just great for anyone who is on the go!


Twelve// LuluLemon Align High-Rise Pant

I feel like Lulu has a cult following, and I am one of the followers. This pair of leggings is just so flattering and slimming

40 Days Without Coke

 For Lent I gave up Coca-Cola, and as much as I love an ice-cold glass bottle of coke on a hot summer’s day, I can safely say that I will never go back to drinking coke on a daily basis after going forty days without it {minus a few cheat days}.

I think it is safe to say that the past few years have been stressful on different levels and for different reasons for everyone. I also think it is safe to say that everyone has their different coping foods/drinks/habits, and mine coping drink is coke… Since the start of the year, I have been trying to have healthier habits, so cutting coke out of my daily diet when the opportunity presented itself just seemed to make sense. To be completely honest, the first few days without having coke as a beverage option were a little difficult, but after I crossed over the hump of the withdrawal period, I noticed the positive differences a small change can make!

Better Nights Rest// I think the amount of sugar any soda contains can defiantly cause anyone to be a little wired. I noticed that I was able to fall asleep so much easier and felt slightly more rested the next day

 

Complexion// I think improvement in complexion is the thing I noticed most. Aside from coke, water is my next favorite drink, so this could also be a contributing factor, but my skin looks so much better than it did at the start of March. My skin tone is so even, and I have very little redness.

 

Weight// After about a week and a half I noticed that my body let go of some of the bloat it had been holding on to, and I lost a little bit of weight from cutting it out of my daily diet

 

Eating less sugar// Who doesn’t love chocolate and other sugary treats!? I usually treat myself to a few chocolate related items throughout the day, but noticed that once I gave up coke, I also lost my craving for other sugary items

 

More Energy// Coke is something I drink throughout the day to give me a little bump, but I noticed without as much sugar running through my body, I actually had more energy than I normally would have 


If you have been trying to improve your life through healthy habits than I strongly recommend cutting coke out of your diet, or at least giving it a try!

Links I'm Loving

 I feel like April has been such a weird month so far… just everything about it – there has been a weird vibe in the air, the weather has been weird, and the weeks have gone by so fast, but this month has felt so long… I’m starting to feel like April is some type of weird limbo month. On the upside though, the flowers have been beautiful, and I love how green everything is! On another positive note, I have come across some simply fabulous links to share with you all this week!

One// Sarah Flint Mirjana Sandal

Earlie this week Sarah Flint released the Mirjana Sandal in Amalfi Blue Vachetta and Black Vachetta. I love the Sarah Flint Mirjana Sandals and am so excited about the two new colors they added to this style. They are just perfect for summer and are so easy to dress up or down! Use my code: SARAHFLINT-BALAURENAID at checkout to receive $50 off your first pair of Sarah Flint shoes!

 

Two// Pro Chef & Home Cook Swap Ingredients 

Does anyone else getting sucked into YouTube cooking series? My new obsession is a series where the professional chef and home cook trade ingredients and recipes. Honestly, probably none of the recipes are something you would make at home, but it’s just a fun series to zone out to

 

Three// J. McLaughlin Genevieve Wood and Cane Clutch

I am 100% so here for the Wicker and Cane clutches and handbags for this summer. This J. McLaughlin Cane Clutch is just so timeless and so perfect. And trend or not, this clutch is a classic for decades to come

 

Four// Spotify Coastal Grandmother Playlist

I am so here for the grandmillian movement. I just love the movies, style, and music from the 1950s-1970s. There are just so many feel good songs packed into this time period, and this playlist will definitely leave you in an upbeat mood!

 

Five// Make Ahead Mother’s Day Desserts

I feel like there is always a holiday around the corner, and mother’s day is next up on the list, and Southern Living already has us covered with a few delicious make ahead desserts

 

Six/ Will & Grace

With everything that has gone on the past couple of years and the news, every now and then I’ll have these rolling waves of heaviness and/or sadness, so I’ve been trying to take in more positive things and upbeat entertainment, and Will & Grace is such a fun escape. Can we please bring back the tv show and movie writers from the 90s and early 2000s? The storylines were just happier

Favorites From One Kings Lane

 One Kings Lane is one of my most favorite places to shop for anything home related. They have the best selection of timeless pieces and even a selection for those who prefer a more modern flair. I am 100% convinced that someone could decorate an entire house {of any vibe} just by ordering furniture and home décor items from One Kings Lane

This week One Kings Lane has make some of their items 20% off, and I just couldn’t help but share a few of my favorites, both on sale and not! 

Solid Cashmere Throw, Pink Blush

I strongly feel that there should be a throw tastefully draped over either a chair or sofa in every room. These cashmere throws are like a little touch of luxury at the end of the day, and I simply love this soft pink color

Blush Anna French Thibaut Floral Pillow

The print on this pillow is simply fabulous! It also comes 



Brooke 3-Seat Sofa

I have been lusting after this sofa for years, and added bonus, it is currently on sale! Light Blue velvet… does life get any better than this?

Dawn Wolfe, Original Map Dress

I love these Dawn Wolfe pieces. I think they would just look precious hanging in a little girl’s bedroom or playroom, or even in a woman’s office or closet. I am just always so impressed how these maps are folded to create a work of art

Peter Ruck, Shaken Not Stirred

How amazing would this print look hanging over a bar cart or bar area. Also, why can’t men dress like this in today’s world?

Wilshire Bread & Butter Plate

Any white plate with a gold trim will also make my heart skip a beat. I also love the fact that white plates with a gold detail can basically be used with any pattern of plate and at any holiday.

Antoinette Table Lamp, Blue/Gold

This lamp is such a splurge, but so beautiful, and definitely timeless enough to be passed down for a few generations

Bridgitte Ornate Wall Mirror, Antiqued Gold

In my opinion, there is never such a thing as too many mirrors. Love the classic look of this mirror, and it is on sale at the moment!

Blue Cream Damask Wrapped ColorPak

Does anyone else have a thing about bookshelves? Books, flowers, and pictures just give a room life and a soul. I feel like this grouping of decorative books would be a great anchor to build your actual books and bookshelf décor around

Cloud Fringe Patio Umbrella, Light Blue

This has to be one of the prettiest umbrellas ever made. The tassel detail and the shade of blue is so beautiful and a definite node to an age of glamor 

Winterhur Estate Canopy Daybed

This is an amazing outdoor piece. I feel like its something that should be in an old Grace Kelly Movie

Monday, April 18, 2022

The Cave Dwellers

I purchased this book 100% based on the fact that the cover design incorporates red toile. Even though the cover is beautiful with its red, white, and navy cover work the storyline also sounded interesting. In full transparency, The Cave Dwellers is not my favorite book I’ve read this year… it’s not even in the top ten. I honestly think some of it might have been me, but I could just never get invested in the storyline; I think partly because I’m honestly tired of the news and politics and this book naturally has those two components interwoven into the storyline since it takes place in Washington, D.C. That said, someone else might love The Cave Dwellers, but out of the books I have read so far for 2022, it is not one of my favorites, on a personal level.

The Cave Dwellers is set in Washington D.C. – the heartbeat city of American politics. This book focuses on D.C. one percent, the lifestyle, scandals, abuse of power, history of families, and the strings that are attached to certain lifestyles.

 

This story starts out with a murder {that is somewhat of a mystery to a couple of the characters} and follows the families that were friends/acquaintances o the daughter that fell victim to the murders. Each friend is part of an elite family that is in some way corrupt, dysfunctional, or some other issue. 

 

Although Christina McDowell can clearly write, I feel like there were a lot of unnecessary details in this book, like side stories that really went now where, a murder scene that was slightly too detailed, children who clearly had issues, abusive husbands, social climbers, and so on, at the end of the day I think this book had too many dysfunctional elements for to enjoy the storyline. Granted, D.C. is a place where these elements are laced into everyday culture, as well, as other place, but I feel like there are enough positives McDowell could have found to make for a more balanced story. On a positive note, I will say that she did a wonderful job of describing the physical landscape of D.C. and did a nice job of tying historical occurrences to add strength to overall book. However, like I said, this just wasn’t a book I enjoyed very much, but someone else might love The Cave Dwellers.

Links I'm Loving

 How is it already Easter weekend?! Ironically, it is going to be colder in Nashville for Easter than it was for Christmas… Mother Nature is seriously a little confused about her holiday weather. Not to complain, but I honestly feel like the cold weather season has lasted forever this year… don’t get me wrong, I love nights spent by the fire, snow, sweater weather, and everything that comes with the change of season, but it reaches a point when I am just ready for everything to be warm and bright. Plus, who couldn’t use a few extra kisses from the warmth of a spring sun and a warm wind wrapped hug. In the meantime though, here are a few links that I am absolutely loving! 

One// Barefoot Contessa Coconut Cupcakes

Is any special occasion complete without a dish or dessert compliments of an Ina Garten dessert? If I could just spend a day in the Kitchen with Ina and Jennifer Garner, I’m pretty sure my life would be complete; they just bot seem so nice and amazing in their own right. On to the topic at hand, these cupcakes with a Peep topper is just too cute and too perfect to resist! 

 

Two// Sarah Flint x Gracie Collection

Sarah Flint always teams up with the best people and companies for her collaborations. The fabric that was created for this shoe collection is just stunning! If you see a pair of shoes you like, remember to use code: SARAHFLINT-BALAURENAID to receive $50 off your first pair of Sarah Flint shoes!

 

Three// Southern Living Favorite Easter Menu Ideas of All Time

Always love a Southern Living Recipe! Incase you are in need of a little last minute Easter lunch/dinner inspiration, Southern Living has you covered!

 

Four// Anthropologie x Mark D. Sikes

Mark Sikes taste is basically flawless. I love all the blue and white he uses, the nod to past design/fashion inspirations, and just his overall aesthetic is truly beautiful. The collection he dreamed up with Anthropologie is instantly classic while staying relevant to today’s style. 

 

Five// Jennifer Garner and Tiler Peck

I love Jennifer Garner’s Instagram; all of her pictures and posts always have such a feel-good vibe about them. If you aren’t already following her on Instagram, I highly recommend you do!
