I am shocked that August is almost over! Where has this year gone? It is going to be the Holidays before we know it- which makes me very happy because I love the Holidays. Here is what I am loving this week!


I came across these napkins on the Horchow website and I am in love. I have a slight obsession with monograms and ikat so these are perfect for me!


I am embarrased to admit but I got this Clarisonic for Christmas a year ago and I have just recently started using it. Why it took me so long to bust out I have no idea. I have been using it daily when I shower and I swear it makes such a difference in my skin. It is smoother and looks brighter. This thing is a miracle worker.


I am sure most of you are already familiar with this blog but I just found it and I am obsessed. Blair has the best style ever, I am so inspired by all the outfits she puts together. Most are mix of high and low end which I love. These are a few of my favorite looks I found on her blog while blog stalking her! Check out all her fabulous fashions HERE.


This wine is fabulous. I have recently really gotten into Sauvignon Blancs, I think they are a great summer wine. This wine is light and citrusy but not too fruity or sweet. It retails for about $13 so it is great buy!


I have made this fabulous dish twice in the last week. I absolutely love it. Fresh tomatoes, basil and cheese- does it get any better? If you are not a Southerner you may have never even had tomato pie before, but I promise it is amazing! I have a great recipe to share tomorrow:)

Happy Tuesday! xoxo

  7. Oh Natalie you're making me want to ask for a Clarisonic for Xmas now. I've been hearing good things and I trust your judgement. And yep, Blair is abosultely unreal. I've been following her since we were both in that Vday crush game and am in love a little.

  8. Sauvignon blanc is my absolute fave, especially for summer. Charles Krug is my favorite, so yummy!

  19. I also love my Clarisonic and have been using it for about month. AP is certainly one of my fav blogs too.

    Thanks for the heads up on the wine. I love whites in the summer and think it would pair nicely with the tomato pie too.


  20. That tomato pie looks so yummy – I made tomato and goat cheese tarts this weekend. Similar ingredients 🙂

    Checking out Atlanta Pacific for the first time now. Thanks for sharing.

  21. can't WAIT until next summer when I can finally enjoy a cold sav blanc on the water!!! Pretty obsessed with AP blog too, she might be the most stylish chick I've ever seen! Really really want to try that clarisonic I've been eyeing it at Nordstrom and Gwynn's for years!

  22. Jen Watts says:

    I have always wanted to try a tomato pie..it sound delicious.

  23. I love those napkins, too, and I'm completely already gearing up for Halloween, it's my *favorite*!!! And I think I might give a kidney for 5 minutes in Blair's closet…*drool*…

  24. Bud and Leo says:

    Tomato pie sounds A-mazing! Yum!!!

    We love Atlantic Pacific, too!
