Just a quick post to share this gorgeous watch from JORD Watches with y’all! I’ve been wearing my JORD watch for about a week, and I’ve received compliments on it every single day. Every. Single. Day. Mine is the Dover Ebony & Copper watch (see all the details here), made with Ebony wood… did y’all know that Ebony is a kind of tree?! I didn’t…

Setting Intentions

Erin Short The Bliss Between

Setting an intention doesn’t have to be relegated to a champagne-fueled lark made on New Year’s Eve, which is then promptly abandoned by January 15th. In fact, I tend to think New Year’s resolutions are kind of pointless. They’re good in theory… but not so much in execution. But setting monthly intentions… that’s something I can get behind. Why to set intentions? It’s a way…

Bet on Yourself

The Bliss Between

You know that feeling of dissatisfaction? The feeling of wanting, of needing more in your life? I had been feeling that lately. A lot actually, in the past nine months. For me, the dissatisfaction was coming from my career. I had a good job, don’t get me wrong. GREAT benefits. Stability. But it had ceased to be challenging. And it was never what I hoped…

Five Best Bargains in the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale

The Bliss Between Lilly Pulitzer

Lilly Pulitzer is a Southern gal’s best friend. The colorful prints and classic lines are the epitome of southern charm. But there’s more to Lilly than just “white girl’s camo” as a friend of mine once called it. I love the bright prints for a summer wedding or a day at Keeneland, but the solid colored pieces are what allow Lilly Pulitzer to be so…

adventures in yoga: SUP Yoga

Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga

There are so many new ways popping up to experience yoga… Surely you’ve seen the videos of baby goat yoga on your social media feeds? Then there’s nude yoga, yoga raves, and karaoke yoga, to name a few. On the other end of the spectrum, there are so many old ways to experience yoga that I’ve never tried either… inyengar, ashtanga, kundalini… and I want…

10 Ways to Pamper All Five Senses

Cha Cha's Salon

I’ve read a few self care articles lately that have knocked the art of pampering. I absolutely agree that there is way more to self care than a mani-pedi. Of course there is. And it’s important to note the difference between self care and pampering. But I also firmly believe that a little pampering can go a long way in creating a little bliss in…

You are NOT an idiot… stop calling yourself one

The Bliss Between

How many times a day do you call yourself an idiot? When you drop your phone on the ground? When you make a wrong turn? How often do you tell yourself you did something stupid? Maybe when you try to pay for coffee with your driver’s license instead of your debit card? Or perhaps when you accidentally put your cashmere sweater in the dryer? We…

Women Empowering Women: Is it Real?

The movement of women empowering women has skyrocketed in my social media lately. All of the sudden, we’re all #girlbosses looking out for each other and #womensupportingwomen. And I can’t help but wonder… is it genuine, or is it just trendy to pretend? First off, let me say that I WANT it to be real. I hope it is. At the very least, I hope…

Get Fired Up: Yoga Poses for Energy

Yoga for energy

It’s almost August, and it’s HOT. Days are long and the sun can be draining. What should be a season of play and fun sometimes makes me want to just take a nap… which is no way to spend the summer! When I need an energy boost, I turn to yoga. We often use yoga to relax, but with the right poses, yoga can ENERGIZE…
