nSale: Home +Kids

 

Hi! So sorry its been forever since I’ve had a new post, but sometimes thats life! We are finally settled in Pensacola and it feels so good to be back in this city. We didn’t realize how much we missed it! In North Carolina we were about 30-45min from anything {besides the grocery store} so just being able to “run” to Starbucks or Target makes me feel like I’m living in a big city. While we miss our NC home, we definitely love the location of our new one here and have been taking the time to explore, showing Henry all our favorite spots around town. Tonight were headed to a kid friendly brewery for some local drinks and delicious pizza!

Like everyone else in the blogging world, I’m sharing my picks from the N Sale. I decided to forgo fashion and focus on some of my favorite home and kids items from the sale. Most of the kids things come in other colors but naturally I gravitate towards all things boy because of Henry. Have fun browsing!

Kids

1. Maxi Cosi Pria 85 Carseat : We absolutely love this carseat and are thinking about buying another for Erik’s car. The cloth cover is machine washable and it’s beyond easy to install. If you missed this seat on Amazon Prime day, grab it now!

2. Nike Kicks : I just think these are the cutest shoes! The velcro tops are kid {and mom} friendly and keep your kid looking like a “cool dude” as Henry says!

3. Munki Munki Pajamas : So so soft and they come in three different prints!

4. Aden + Anais Swaddling Cloths : If you don’t already know about these swaddling cloths stop what you’re doing and order them! They are our favorite baby product to date {Henry has six!}

5. Pom Storage Baskets : This is also a home item, but we use similar baskets for toy storage and to keep our beautiful mess contained. 

Home

1. Nautica Comforter and Shams : If you’re looking for a new beset, I love this one. It’s a clean, classic style stripe that I don’t think you’ll get tired of in the future.

2. Nautica Accent Pillow : These accent pillows are on sale for $25! I’ve spent too much of my life looking for stylish but inexpensive throw pillows so don’t pass this one up!

3. Brooklyn Gold Edge Tray : Such a great, personalized gift for anyone!

4. Monogramed Throw : Another great gift idea, but also perfect to keep for yourself.

5. Octagon Wall Mirror : Love the gold frame and modern style

6. 600 Count Egyptian Cotton Sheet Set : Super soft and they’ll look great under that comforter you just bought!

7. Gold Rim Vase : This vase is only $25 and comes in a bunch of different shapes. I liked the hammered glass and shape of this one.

8. Diptyque Mini Candles : Great to split up as gifts or to use in different places around the house. These are my all-time favorite candles and if you haven’t tried them, its the perfect opportunity!

9. Chevron Spinner Carry-On : Not exactly a home item, but I couldn’t pass up this suitcase. It’s durable with its hardshell case and TSA approved locking system. It comes in three colors and if you’re planning on taking a summer trip, its a great size!

Valentine’s Day For The Girls

 

 Oh my goodness! It's basically February already which means Valentine's day is like tomorrow... Just kidding. You still have time to shop for your loved one, but today I'm sharing some fun gift ideas for yourself or your best girl friends.    This tee  might be my favorite thing on the list because we all need love and it's only $35. The Shiraz tee just makes me laugh and I can totally see some of my friends {okay fine, myself} wearing this while they're sitting at home having a glass of wine.   I just received my velvet hair bow from Lolo & Leopold that I absolutely love, and you can bet I'll be doing a post on it, but this  velvet hair tie  is a great gift idea and velvet is totally on trend this year. I also sleep in  these pajamas  EVERY night {seriously, ask my husband}. I have them in almost every color and when they came in pink this year, I immediately put them on my wish list.  Y'all also know my love for Diptyque and while I'm usually not a fan of roses, I love the way their  Rose Delight candle  smells. My Nordstrom gal, Susan, sent me a sample and it's been burning in my house ever since.

It’s that time of year again! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is almost open to the public so I’m sharing some of my favorites that you’ll be able to find online and in stores July 17th. I picked great items to get you through the rest of the Summer and some perfect finds for Fall. If you have a Nordstrom Card you can shop my picks right now!

Summer Shoes

I have a thing for shoes. Really. My closet extends into two states and when my mom started texting me pictures of my shoes {to see if I needed any of them, love her} I realized I had an obsession. And not for the reason you think… but because the realization that I owned three of the same pair of sandals {Tory Burch Millers, in case you were wondering} came to light. To my defense- one pair is patent leather, one it tumbled leather, and the other, well it’s tumbled leather too, but I keep them at home so I have a pair to wear when I visit my parents. Still not justified? Okay you win… Since I’ve been thinking about my shoe debacle, I wanted to share my picks for your summer shoe wardrobe. All these styles are great for any occasion {even the Louboutins can be worn with jeans} and I guarantee you’ll be wearing them long past summer.

Glamour & Giving Seattle

Thursday night was Glamour & Giving, Seattle to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. I was so thankful to be a part of the event and had the best time supporting a charity close to my heart, shopping for a cause and meeting some truly incredible people. Glamour & Giving was hosted by Neiman Marcus at The Shops at The Bravern in Bellevue and included a silent auction, live auction, fashion show and some amazing guest speakers including St. Jude patient, Gideon Janku and his mom, Dee-Anna.

As a Tri Delta alumni, St. Jude has been an organization I’ve supported for many years and this event was truly a testament to Seattle’s support for a cause. Lilly Pulitzer said “If you haven’t any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.” Enjoy pictures from such a fun night and if you’d like to support St. Jude you can find ways to get involved or donate here.
