L.L. Bean “Bean” Boots

L.L. Bean “Bean” Boots

Crafted by hand in Maine and available in a variety of color combinations, heights, and styles, L.L. Bean “Bean” boots are a classic staple shoe that suits both girls who favor a preppy aesthetic and girls who just like their feet to be toasty, dry, and comfy. I fall into both [...]

Three Things: Cookbooks

Three Things: Cookbooks

I’ve mentioned before that Ina Garten’s cookbooks are among my very favorites, and thanks to months of scouring Amazon, discount bookstores, Costco, and the like, I’ve almost completed my collection of the Barefoot Contessa series.

Links & Pretty, Happy Things (6/28)

Low, Low Tide at Sea Island (Yes, I’m STILL feeling beach-y…) I cannot begin to express how much I really, really want this bike basket. The beach cruiser and beach house to go with it would be nice, too. Possibly the most striking – in a good way! – wide [...]

Pink Flowers at Zoo Atlanta Perfectly preppy seersucker cloth napkins: DIY and ready made The exaggerated denim cuff? This is coming from the same girl who didn’t think she’d ever wear a tied button down and who used to lobby to get crop pants removed from stores everywhere.

Three Things: Tea (or Coffee) Mugs

Three Things: Tea (or Coffee) Mugs

Cup and Saucer from La Maison Angelina This is my all-time favorite tea cup and saucer, both because of it’s elegant simplicity and the wonderful memories of a family trip to the City of Light years ago. Another souvenir! I admit that I dragged the hub to a zillion Starbucks [...]

Instant Pick-Me-Up: Red Lips and Tips

Instant Pick-Me-Up: Red Lips and Tips

IMHO, there is nothing, nothing* quite like a red lip and/or red nails to instantly elevate a look. Sweatshirts and a baseball cap suddenly look intentional and pulled together (rather than thrown on 2 seconds before dashing out the door).

Soft, Smooth Skin in 3 Quick & Easy Steps

I’m a huge fan of using natural oils as beauty products! They’re usually hypoallergenic, fairly inexpensive, and readily available in organic form. Plus, I think of it as going straight to the source, rather than spending tons of money on products made with only minute amounts* of the beneficial ingredients. Here [...]
