Big thanks to my girls Caycee and Lili for introducing me to this awesome line of planners and notepads.   I love that their slogan is “life is too short for ugly notebooks.” You can custom create your notebook with any background, monogram, and pages you like.   Here is a sneak peek at what is coming my way.  They have so many fabulous patterns to choose from!


This is my new favorite necklace.  Great price and it goes with everything!  I am now putting myself on a self imposed necklace shopping hiatus!  I have way too many! It says this is back ordered but mine came fairly quickly.


I am in love with this Madewell number.  Every time I go home to Charlotte I stop in the Madewell store.  I really wish we would get one here in Charleston.  This is the perfect easy summer dress at a great price.


These nuts are amazing.  My new favorite snack.  You can find them in the bulk food section at Earthfare.  They are filled with so many spices and flavors.  The problem is I try to be healthy by eating nuts as a snack and then I devour way more than the serving size.  Oh well.


I am smitten with this entryway.  I am looking to do something similar at our house with ottomans or poufs under our entry table.  Perfect styling.

Lastly,  as if you need another reason to shop, Piperlime is having their annual Summer sale with 50% Summer clothes, shoes, and accessories!  There are some amazing deals.  Plus today is Tuesday which means you get an additional 10 % off with the code TUESDAYS

    The notepads are so cute, life IS too short for ugly notebooks. I love the green necklace, but I have also had to put a stop to my necklace ordering. Way too out of control.

  4. My parents have (or had – I can't remember if they gave it away when they moved) that fossil stone entry way table. I thought it was not cool until now! Have you checked out One Kings Lane? I got a pouf there for way cheap. Have a good day!

  5. I need one of those notebooks! I forget EVERYTHING these days!

  6. Love your obsessions always. Love those notebooks!

  7. Thanks for the Piperlime sale info, I had no idea! Your new necklace is fab.

    Pretty planners…About the nuts, just think, it could be worse. It could be ice cream.

  11. Viviana says:

    I think I NEED to get that Madewell t-shirt dress!

  12. Yes – where is that top from? You look so hot!! Meow. šŸ™‚

  13. May Books seem so fun! I love my Erin Condren life planner, but the meal planning book would be wonderful. And only $20 too!

  14. I second everyone, where is that shirt from? That necklace is so pretty and fingers-crossed that maybe a little necklace sale is in the near future here. šŸ˜‰

  17. Fabulous planners! I need a pretty one for sure! I love that necklace and have been stalking their website but it is sold out – I really want to pre-order if they get more in! I love that entry way with the poufs under the table, I have been wanting to do something similar.

    Agreed! Great top in the photo with the green necklace. Will you share your source?! : ) Madewell is the best. Recently,I purchased the cutest dress that looks like tortoiseshell. I always get tons of compliments on it because it can be dressed up or down.
