Thoughts For Friday

Aug 25, 2017

Happy Friday Friends!   The kids and I don’t have any real plans this weekend besides one birthday party and that makes me happy.  We plan to enjoy a low key weekend.

This Kate Spade Blouse is now on sale 40% off.  I am obsessed with the gorgeous colors and print.  Actually just wore it yesterday paired with jean shorts. I am wearing these earrings

This dress is also now 40% .  Both the blouse and dress run TTS, I am wearing a small in both.

Frances Moon ready for the eclipse.

The sky was so gorgeous the night after the eclipse.

I just picked up this book How to Talk to Your Kids About Divorce and for any of you going through a divorce it has been really helpful to me.  I have had so many questions about the divorce and Matt and I recently.  I am working on a post but it is taking me awhile to put my thoughts in order:)

Little Giraffe was sweet enough to send me this throw from their site and I am obsessed!  I love all their baby stuff but didn’t realize how much great stuff they had for the home too.  You can use code NATALIE20 to save 20% on all orders!  A great time to buy baby gifts or treat yourself.  Frances loves this pillow and blanket.

Several of you asked for the recipe for this chickpea salad I made this week.  You can find the recipe HERE

I stopped in Harrison Blackford’s studio this week.  She is local Charleston artist.  I am loving her new series.

Her front door is the prettiest shade of pink.

After hearing so many rave reviews about this supplement I ordered some off Amazon.  I heard it is great for your hair, skin and nails.  I have been putting a scoop in my hot lemon water each morning, it has no taste.

Vital Proteins


The big Lilly Pulitzer sale starts Monday!  I am hoping to snag some goodies for Frances!  If i can get in Monday morning I will share what I bought. I love their little girl’s shift dresses.

I recently bought this dress for myself when I was in there shopping for Frances.  I loved the colors and embroidery details.

I had dinner last night at Cure, a James Island restaurant and it was really good.    I had the chopped wedge salad for my dinner with chicken. We also shared the snow crab legs for an appetizer and they were amazing.

Have a great Friday!

    Love collagen peptides! I put it in my coffee every morning for the past few months and have seen a difference in my hair, nails and skin. Have a great weekend!
