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…

Death by Swiping: Quit Tinder and Take Back Your Life

I joined tinder for the same reason most of us probably do: half for laughs, half to see what it was like, and half because I was 3/4 through a bottle of Chianti. The crazy part was when I found actual, dateable guys on it. Like, attractive to semi-attractive men with careers, dogs, and a firm grasp on the English language. Men who actually wanted…

best of what’s left: the #nsale

It seems like all anyone can blog about these days is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. But for good reason! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is so awesome because it features brand new fall items ON SALE! When else can you buy next season’s fashions on sale? I’ll tell you when: never. Hence, why we all adore the Anniversary Sale so much. So many things sold out…

Joy by trying

  Joy. We all want it. We're all searching for it. Chasing it. Sometimes it eludes us. At times it seems completely unattainable. And then, once in a while, we catch it. Maybe we hold on to it briefly, maybe longer. It's always in flux. And that's okay. Because joy can be found in SO MANY WAYS. And in SO MANY PLACES. One of my…
