Thoughts For Thursday

Sep 22, 2016

Lots of random stuff today! 

I have mentioned Dellz on here a few times before but it is one of my favorite spots to pick up lunch.  They have so many amazing veggie and vegan choices- and meat too.  I usually get the black bean hummus wrap but I just found out they will make any wrap into salad.  Since I have been trying to cut back on carbs this salad has been my jam.  It is so good.  If you go order the Hummer as a salad or wrap- both are delish!  Btw I am working on an updated Charleston Recs post because so many new restaurants have opened since my last post:)

This was yesterday. Total chaos all day.  They both fought all day and told me a million times how bored they were.  I made it til 5 but immediately poured a large glass of wine.

Glennon’s new book is amazing so far.  I am 2 days in and halfway through.  She has such a gift as a writer.  Oprah recommends it too, so you know it’s good.

Love Warrior

I finally had the chance to stop in the new Club Monaco this week.  I love the color palette there, so many pretty things.  I am so excited Charleston finally has one- next we need a Zara! 

Two items in my shopping cart right now at Nordstrom.  I want both but keep trying to decide if I like one better than the other.  I like that they seem light weight enough for the climate here.

Sterling lost another tooth last night, I think this makes 6!  His top three are all missing now.  We were joking last night about how he was going to chew with all his missing teeth.

Sterling wrote the tooth fairy the sweetest note.  It made my heart melt.  I snapped this picture this morning before he woke up.  

How adorable is this deer dress??  Frances picked it out at the Progeny Pop-Up Shoppe last weekend.  I love her sparkly silver natives so much I am ordering her the gold next!

The Tata Harper Honey Blossom Face Mask is so good.  I am a huge fan of her resurfacing mask, and this one is just as good.  It is limited edition so get one while you can!  It leaves your skin super soft and glowing.

I alternate between this one and my Beauty Counter Charcoal Mask.  Both are awesome.  I like the charcoal one more for detoxing my skin and helping with acne and the Tata Harper one is great for moisturizng your skin and leaving it hydrated.

Loft is currently offering 30% off everything or 40% off if you have a LOFT Card.  

This is my favorite top I have purchased from there lately.  Use code SHOPSMART.  I am wearing a small in the tee.

Peplum Tee

I have these items in my cart but I may swing by the store today to try them on in person.  


Floral Blouse

The Tory Burch Fall Event just started too.  Spend $250 and you can save 30%.  Use code FALL16.

These are top on my list to buy.  I love the pink/blush color!

Twiggy Flats

Can we please discuss Brangelina.  I hate to say I am not surprised but I am not.  I can only wonder what Jennifer Aniston is thinking.  There have been so many funny posts about the break up but this was my favorite.

I have the itch to re-do our hall bathroom.  I definitely want to do wallpaper and something kind of funky.  These are a few I LOVE.


Have a great Thursday!  Hurray for one day til the weekend.

  1. First your kids are just precious!
    I am not surprised either on the split of Angelina and Brad… I think it is sweet revenge for Jennifer Anniston- although I hate kids are involved.

    I am not normally one to comment… but that picture had me rolling… And I am at the office so I had people looking… and once they saw it it was all head nods. Such real life caught perfectly!!

    Your salad posts lately made me stop by a local shop and get a kale and quinoa salad. Thanks! My bum thanks you too. ;). And those blush flats are beyond fabulous!!!! I must own them!!! That "real life" picture of your kiddos is hilarious. Thanks for keeping it real. Hope the tooth fairy was good to Sterling. šŸ™‚
