Friday’s Randoms

Jul 24, 2015

The Serena and Lily Private Sale started yesterday.  You can access the sale early HERE.

Love these Beach Towels 50% off.

These Hooded Towels make great baby gifts, also 50% off.

I just love these Seagrass glasses for Summer Entertaining.  Great fir wine, water or really any beverage.

These Tassel curtains are on sale in several colors.  We have the black ones in Frances Moon’s nursery and love them!!


Several of my items from the Nordstrom sale arrived.  The Nest candles smell just heavenly!! I had never bought either of these scents before but they are so fresh and smell divine.   Rodney clearly approves too:)

Nest Candles (originally $76 now $50)

Also part of the sale is this Tunic.  It is perfect to wear with leggings and skinny jeans and only $27. It comes in 5 colors.

I know the off the shoulder look is everywhere these days but I am still loving it.  This Topshop Dress has my name all over it.  That shade of green has been my favorite lately.

Topshop Ruffle Shoulder Dress

The new JCrew arrivals have me swooning.  I am thinking about ordering this Marble print blouse.

 I made one of my all time favorite recipes this week, Tomato Pie.  It is pure heaven.

I am comtemplating a Swell water bottle.  Anyone own one and what size is best?  I heard they keep your drinks cold for 24 hours and things hot for 12 hours.  I love this blue print.

Bubble Baths + Popsicles.

My sweet Frances ran a fever all day yesterday so we were trying to get her feeling better.  The Popsicle at least brought out a smile.

This picture Caycee took of my kids melts my heart.

I just started the new Dorthey Benton Frank book, All the Single Ladies and love it!  I have been into light,  easy reads this Summer.

You all know I love my Essential Oils (see original post here). They really never go on sale but for the next 3 weeks you can take $10 and $10 % for existing members.  Email if you are interested or want to place an order.

    Natalie – there is a tomato pie contest tomorrow at my local pharmacy/drug store/sandwich place in Greenville! Your tomato pie needs to do it next year. πŸ™‚

    Love swell water bottles! I have the bigger size πŸ™‚

  4. I have 3 Swell bottles- 2 medium and 1 large. I'm obsessed. They really do keep cold for 24 hours and hot for 12. The medium is great for everyday use, the large is good for the pool / beach. πŸ™‚

    I love my Swell water bottle! My water stays cold all day and you don't have to worry about adding ice or the bottle sweating! I have the 17oz., but would definitely recommend the 25oz. My sister buys for the Gwynn's gifts department and they always have a great selection!

  6. I love all Dorothea Benton Frank writes! Will have to get!

  7. Blair M. says:

    I have Swell in both the small & larger sizes and they are good for different reasons! The small one fits really well in most cup holders, but the large one can hold an entire bottle of wine (…or so I've been told) πŸ™‚ Get both!

    I love my S'well bottle – if you put ice-cold water in it, it truly will last all day. We sell them at our store (Bell's Fine Clothing in Winchester, VA) and they are popular. I have the champagne/gold color which is pretty timeless. What I love most about it is that they work GREAT at the beach or on a boat – sitting out in the sun. Sand will not stick to it at the beach and no need to put it in a cooler. The medium size is good for every day, and the large is big enough for an entire wine bottle πŸ˜‰ Coffee will stay hot in it too. You'll love it! (Can you tell I work in marketing?)

  9. Dot Frank books are my favorite – can't wait to read this one!
