I am finally back in Charleston, unpacked and settling in. I swear I had a hangover for two days straight, my head is just starting to clear from the fog of Miami! I am so behind on all my blog reading, I can't wait to catch up on all my favorites!

Here are this week's Obsessions!

I have always really liked Serena and Lily's baby bedding line and now I am smitten with their furniture line. They have some fabulous fabric choices. You can pretty much custom choose everything. I really love their headboards and chairs.

I enjoyed some tasty ceviche while in Miami and now I am obsessed. It is such a fresh and light dish filled with tons of flavor!

After reading many a fabulous reviews on this eyeshadow palette, I ordered it. It does not disappoint. The colors are fabulous. I usually only wear neutral eyeshadow and this has a ton of great colors. I guess that is why Sephora told me they have been sold out since January!

I have been lusting after this dress awhile now. The color is perfection and I love the easy style of it. I could see myself wearing this dress all the time!

I am obsessed with seltzer/soda water. I seriously drink 4-5 cans a day. I love the carbonation and the fact that it has no sugar. While I was home my sister made me seltzer with her Penguin Soda maker she received as a wedding gift. It was amazing, the best sparkling water ever! It was perfectly carbonated and only took like 30 seconds to make. I am adding this to my Christmas list!

Oui Oui French Connection

Happy Monday! I am back from Miami and I survived a long weekend of partying! I had a fabulous time! I will share some pictures and reviews later this week when I get the time to upload all my pics!

In the meantime, I just got my new French Connection Catalog in the mail and was quite smitten with it. I have always liked French Connection, they have cute clothes for reasonable prices. The Spring/Summer catalog did not disappoint. There were so many pretty things in it that I wanted. Here are just a few beauties.

I really like the relaxed look and the neutral color palette they chose for this collection. Are you a French Connection fan?

Bienvenidos a Miami

I am on my way to Miami! By the time you read this I will probably be boarding my plane. Hoping I don't freak out because Mama hates to fly! Nothing a few cocktails can't cure:)

When I land, I am hoping to enjoy a few of these

While lounging here

Perhaps make a stop in here (yes, I admit it, much to my husband's dismay, I kind of like the Kardashians and would be thrilled to see them at their store)

and maybe run into these ladies!

and hoping I don't end up like this- it has been awhile since I partied at a Bachelorette Party, wish me luck! I hope this Mama can hang!


Pictures to come next week! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! xoxo

Home Tour- Nursery

I thought I would continue with my Home Tour and give you a sneak peak into my little man's nursery. I knew no matter what I wanted dark brown walls, white furniture, and a sheepskin rug; so that is pretty much what I decorated around.

My two favorite things in his nursery are the vintage owl lamp my mom found at an Antique Store and the rocking chair. It previously belonged to my great-grandmother and we had it recovered. It holds such special meaning because so many generations in my family have rocked their babies in that chair- LOVES IT!

I had a really hard time finding bedding I liked. I ended up ordering his from Restoration Hardware and have been pleased with it. I really like their color palette. His crib is Oeuff and I love it. I am really drawn to modern, clean lines and this crib was exactly what I wanted. The bookshelf we already owned and just re-painted it white and I found the dresser at HomeGoods!

Happy Tuesday Lovelies. Here is what I am obsessing over this week:)


I will be headed here this weekend while I am in Miami and can't wait. I have heard such fabulous things about this place.


I just got this baby and love her. She might be coming to Miami with me!


This is seriously the best lipgloss ever! All the colors look great on and they really last.


This is the best cheese ever. It is Goat Cheese covered in Rosemary and aged for 45 days. It is a little harder than regular Goat Cheese. The combo of Rosemary and Goat Cheese is divine. Try this asap! I found mine at Costco but I am sure they have it in the gourmet cheese section at the grocery store too.


Ever since I saw the gorgeous Brooklyn Decker in this VB Dress I have been smitten. The color and fit are amaze. I would love to own this beauty.

I hope you all are having a wonderful start to your week! xoxo

Bedroom Love

I seriously love all these bedrooms. They are so perfect in their own ways.

I think this one is my favorite, I love every detail; the color scheme, the headboard, the benches and the mirror. LOVE this room!

I definitely am not a fan of the pillows on this bed but I love the gold leaf light hanging above it, what a surprising and fabulous choice for lighting.

I heart the dark walls in this room and the design symmetry. I also have a soft spot for all white beds. They are so inviting.

This is in my design file for ideas for Sterling's big boy room. I love the stripped walls and navy- orange color combo. How cool would this room be for a little boy?

Son of a Sailor

This weekend marked Sterling and I's first boat ride of the year. We have been wanting to go out on the boat but I swear our weekends have been so busy there is never time. This weekend was perfect because my sister and her husband were in town so we invited them to join us!

Is it wrong that all I think about when we take the boat out is what snacks and drinks I can bring and what outfit is perfect for a boating day? This trip I went with champagne, pimento cheese, cucumber sandwiches, grapes, and some fried chicken for my man. The perfect boating snack food! I wore a navy maxi dress with my bandeau bikini to try and get some much needed sun before my Miami trip!

Matt grew sailing boats, and while we own a motorboat and not a sailboat, I can already tell it is in Sterling's blood. He is definitely a boat lover like his daddy. He loved steering the boat and helping daddy drive. I couldn't resist sharing a few pictures from our weekend!
