Nat’s Musings | Vol 6

Oct 5, 2022

Happy Wednesday! It is officially the first week of October. Frances told me the other day it is 80 days til Christmas and that got my attention. Like how are we 3 months away from Christmas. I can’t believe we are so close to the end of this year. Thinking I need to start working on Gift Guides!

RECENT OUTFITS

Bodysuit (also here) | Jeans – I bought both of these during the Shopbop Sale and just love them. Wearing a medium in the bodysuit and 29 in jeans. The bodysuit also looks great with high waisted shorts, very versatile.

Blouse | Jeans old | Rothy’s Flats – wearing a medium in my blouse and it is on sale! Jeans are old, flats run TTS.

Blouse | Jean Skirt – wearing a size 0 in blouse it runs very large and a 29 in skirt.

Target Tank + Jeans (old) + Dior Slides | These Target tanks are the best and only $5! I own a few colors. Great alone or layered.

Lalinge Dress | This line is a splurge but man I love their dresses. This is the second one I have invested in. Just so well made and I feel good in them. Wearing a size small.

CHARLESTON EATS

XAO BAO BISCUIT | I love this little spot. It is fun to share a few plates. Had lunch with a girlfriend there a few weeks ago and it was so good. We love the cabbage pancake definitely add a fried egg and pork candy. The beef dish and dumplings are also amazing.

Jack Rabbit Filly – Worth the drive to North Charleston, we love this spot. This was our first time trying their Sunday brunch and it did not disappoint. We all shared a few things and all were delicious. We had the 5 space fries, spicy noodles, radish cake (seems weird was so good), crispy chicken and cabbage pancake.

THINGS I’M COOKING

Feta Zucchini Pasta | This is a fun spin on the viral TikTok feta pasta. You simply bake the feta and zucchini with garlic, olive oil and herbs and blend together to make a sauce and mix with angel hair pasta.

Spinach Artichoke Egg Casserole | Made this during the hurricane. It is so easy and delicious. Everyone devoured this. I added the tomatoes simply for presentation I usually make without them.

Turkey Cauliflower Thin Melt | This has been a new favorite lunch. You toast two cauliflower thins with dijon, turkey, shredded spinach, tomato and cheddar cheese.

RECENT PURCHASES

Amazon Sweater| I loved this so much I bought it in 2 colors. This reminded me of the Jenni Kayne Sweater but for under $50. I got a medium in the black and weathered mushroom color.

Leather Headband | another Amazon find. This is only $15 but so gorgeous. I have the brown color and want black next. Looks way more expensive.

Blender Bombs Bars | If you have not tried these you have to! I love the Variety pack, all the flavors are so good but I especially love the Peanut Butter Cookie Dough and Cacao Sea Salt. Sterling loves the Lemon Poppyseed. These are the perfect breakfast on the go with the kids or afternoon snack. My code 10SNOOPBOMBS will work on Amazon to order these!

Target Artwork | This studio McGee Target artwork is so good! I swear it looks like pieces I have seen at GDC Home a home store here yet these are $80 for the pair. I originally ordered for Frances room and now I want them in my room -haha!

Sea New York Blouse | This hasn’t arrive yet as I just ordered but I am excited looks like a gorgeous neutral blouse for Fall.

Calia Mesh Long Sleeve Top | I have been completely addicted to Carrie Underwood’s line since I bought her running shorts. I recently bought this active top in 2 colors and love it. It is made of a mesh lightweight material and such a cute style.

READING + WATCHING + LISTENING

We just watched the Elvis movie and loved it. I remember as a child always listing to Elvis and watching his movies with my grandmother so it was cool to learn more behind the scenes info about his life. I know many people said Austin did not do a good job as the role of Elvis but I thought he did. Eye opening to the crazy amount of pressure on musicians.

I am halfway through reading the Younger Life and really liking it. It starts with a murder and goes from there. I love that each character narrates a chapter.

Listening The Goop Podcast with Gwyneth and her husband Brad. Really enjoyed it. I also saw Rachel Zoe is launching a new podcast I am so excited about!

Have a fabulous week!!! xoxo
