NeuLASH, I'm trying this out...

I've been going to Brow Gal, since moving to Nashville.  She wants to help me make my eyebrows and lashes much fuller.  She has a salon in Memphis and Oxford, but makes travels to Nashville for her clients here and I was lucky enough to find her!


 I invested in NeuLASH to really help my eyebrows grow fuller in one month, over the years, I've tweezed and waxed them too thin (on accident, we've all been here a time or two), I'm trying my best to let them be natural so we can re-shape, even if it means looking a bit un-manicured for a few weeks. SO, I'm using this for my eyelashes and eyebrows for time being, I have a before photo and in the next 30 days, I'll keep you posted on how they look, and show you the before and after...

Have a great weekend! (some changes coming)

I am headed to Rupp Arena tonight to watch this guy play basketball.......



Little brother, Bo, and I are driving up this afternoon to get an early dinner and park! I'll be wearing my latest investment :) I love these - they are foldable.  At first, I was not too sure about the idea of them folding, but they are super neat and fit my face better than the traditional wayfarer.  When I moved to Nashville in June, my wayfarers somehow got lost in the move....I found my ray ban aviators a few months ago while cleaning out old purses and bags. I'm excited about these and plan to take care of them...I had the last pair for 3 years, which is good for me:)



ALSO - I will be changing my blog NAME and design too.  I just feel as though the name and what I post about has changed over the last year and I want to refresh it up a bit. The lovely Jessica at Diamond Doll Design has been bearing with my many requests and changes!! Can't wait to get it all changed and up!


xoxo,

Hair Tutorial

Have you seen this hair tutorial? I tried this, but was in a hurry and didn't have enough time to devote to my entire head full of hair.  I have naturally curly hair, and its a bit wild.  This worked perfect for perfecting my curls and also keeping that extra natural look...I can't wait to try this again and spend time on all sections of my curls!

Cozy weekend update

I've been so busy at week, and I realized that I haven't introduced you all to my cozy little work space.  I have a lot of work to do to make it extra "me" but I love it for right now.  In my new photo you will see my love Lilly Pulitzer planner that I am obsessed with, that I received from the love Just Lovely, when she asked me to be in her wedding.

I also have my most recent purchase, my anthropologie mug that I just adore, seriously how cute is she?


And Last, please notice my adorable new calendar there also.  I got this from Karen's Kreations etsy shop.  It is perfect for seeing the dates at a glance, and I've already got so many complements.  See how cute?! 


Even Karen's caligraphy is perfect, see how pretty my little thank you note she sent is...And that is what I love most about etsy.  


Saturday I got my much anticipated Save The Date, for the Junior League of Nashville for the Spring Gala.  I am so excited and cannot wait to get my formal invitation, it is black tie!!!!! Must. find. dress. now.


Last, I had the entire Sunday to clean.  I scrubbed the entire house and it smells lovely.  There is nothing better than cozy, fresh, warm sheets.  And that is why I love Sunday's. 


Please note my bare wall in the background.  I was envisioning some kind of antler abstract art thing for the wall, but haven't found anything I love.  Do you ladies have any recommendations, my style is pretty classic and traditional but sometimes I like to throw something modern in the mix. Let me know if you've seen any good art :) 

Have a great week and talk soon!!

food, wine & some things that sparkle (Nashville) :)

Today is such a beautiful day in Nashville, I went shopping with le roomie after a fun evening out at Kayne Prime and Whiskey Kitchen.  I really  love Nashville.  It has something for everyone, and the people here are what make this city.  Whether you're old money, new money, up-and-coming professional, a polished professional, a hipster,  an artist, a football player, or ex-football player.  The people here are amazing - the nicest and most easy going.  We made some friends while waiting on our table last night, and I also received some love and hate while watching the Kentucky basketball game in the bar area....all in fun of course....We also got this amazing appetizer. Cotton candy and peppercorn slow-roasted bacon.  It literally made my mouth water is was so good, the bacon was extremely thick, but so so good.  I've never had it like this before, my new goal is attempt this and post about the outcome ;)



What else do I love here? Well.  I met that has changed my brows:)  I call her, Brow Gal.  After moving down here, and not having my normal esthetician my brows were not in the best shape.  She is committed to getting your brows looking full and shaping them to be perfect for you face.  My goal is to have my eyebrows looking as good as Hayden Panettiere's, le Lovely star of NASHVILLE abc of course.  Girl has some killer brows and they look awesome. Brow gal constantly has to remind me "Your eyebrows are sisters, not twins" :) 


Tonight I'm headed to F. Scott's for dinner and some jazz.  I'm really excited I've heard it has amazing gourmet food and a great wine list.  I finally got my j.crew dress this week and am wearing this lovely lady tonight :) except with a cardi of course - its getting a little cooler in the evenings now...


And Last, I wanted to post a little moto that I think we all need to remember and live by.  I'm guilty of having some negative thoughts from time to time and I just love this quote and image :) makes me happy and is so true!
