Thoughts For Friday

Apr 27, 2018

Happy Friday!!  It is going to be in the 8o’s here all weekend and I am so excited.    Last night Sterling had an art show at his school.   We grabbed dinner with some friends before hand.

Dress | Earrings (use code NATALIE20 to save) 

I love the veggie tacos at Ellis Creek Fish Camp, I need to try and recreate these at home.  They have sauteed mushrooms. corn, bell peppers, cabbage and this amazing sauce.

Sterling’s self portrait, I was blown away.  It looks just like him.  I was one proud Mama.

Many of you messaged me about my dress.  Here is a better look at it.  It is crazy soft, comfortable and only $40!  Size down runs on the large side, I am in XS.

Stripe Dress

Two favorite products from Colleen Rothschild are on major sale.

Intense Hydrating Mask

Was $48 now $28!  This is an overnight mask you sleep in.  It really hydrates your skin.  This is my mom’s favorite CR product.

Extreme Recovery Cream

Was $74 now $54.  This is a great night time moisturizer.  I have really dry skin and this makes it feel so good.

My little diva, Frances Moon all ready for bed with her neck pillow, sleep mask and favorite friends:)

Recent outfit this week, Loving the pom poms and loose fit of this blouse.  I am wearing a small.

Pom Pom Blouse

If you live in Charleston and love sushi and thai food you have to check out Thai Elephants.  They recently shut down for 2 months to re-do the restaurant and just re opened.  It is so yummy.

Two recent purchases, I will share them when they arrive.  Love the size of this tote and the colors.  It is under $50!

Straw Tote

Tee Dress

Also ordered this cinched waist tee shirt dress.  Looks like a great classic dress!

This Stripe Tee is now 40% off!  I love mine.  It is a great thicker material and swing fit.  I am in a small.

Made one of my all time favorite dinners this week, Tuscan Chicken Cakes- you can get the recipe HERE.  It is always a crowd pleaser and great to serve at a dinner party.

I bought this book , 100 Days Happier and have been loving it.  It is filled with inspirational quotes and messages to read daily.   It is a great way to start or end your day reading a message.

When your snow cone matches your dress you snap a picture!

Have a wonderful weekend!
