On my mind.............


* Did you guys see this before and after house tour??? I mean, shut the front door, it's so amazing!!! I have a big old girl crush on Erin Shedarowich and I think my crush just grew ;) Amber kinds rocks too.




* Do any of you own a Clarisonic? I don't, but I hear amazing things about them. I was thinking of ordering one since it's included in the Nordsrtom sale. Would love to hear your thoughts on this if you have one.


* Todd and I are trying to decide where to go on our anniversary trip this year. We have it narrowed down to Palmetto Bluff or The Sanctuary. Have you guys ever been to either? Do you suggest one over the other? They both sound really dreamy to me.

Palmetto Bluff

The Sanctuary 

* We have a couples date night planned for this Friday night. I know, mama has had a lot of date nights out this week :) But, I am extra excited about Friday because we finally got a reservation at Edmund's Oast. I have heard wonderful things about the place and I am already drooling thinking about it. How crazy good does that charcuterie and bread plate look?

* On Saturday we are planning to cook out at our house with some neighbors and their kids. Just good old burgers and dogs on the grill. My jalapeño margaritas turned out pretty good, but they still need a little tweaking, so I may work on that for Saturday ;) 


* I think I am going to bite the bullet and purchase these Tory Burch boots. I totally regretted not getting them last year, and with the sale price being $200.00 off the original, it just seems like the right thing to do. Ha! I think I am going to go with the Coconut color!! And don't forget the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to the public tomorrow!!!!

  1. Our anniversary was in February and we were deciding between both of these as well. We ended up choosing Palmetto Bluff and LOVED it. When we pulled up to check in they greeted us by name- the service was top notch. And the setting is stunning. The river views are gorgeous. At the Sanctuary you will be 1 of several hundred and at Palmetto Bluff you are 1 of very few. I believe they have like 40 cottages. That's the other great thing about PB- instead of a hotel room you have a private cottage with a soaking tub, steam shower and screen porch. Don't get me wrong, I love Kiawah and the Sanctuary. I worked out there for 2 years doing real estate, but PB is truly a romantic vacation. You can rent a golf cart to get to and from places, the pool is fantastic and their spa is just awesome. I wrote a recap on my blog a couple of months ago- back in May I think. Let me know of you have any questions about either one. I'm happy to help

  3. My clarisonic is a game changer - you gotta get one girl! It makes your skin crazy smooth and any moisturizer or serum you put on top of your skin just melts. And I swear my skin always looks a million times cleaner, brighter and my make-up goes on more evenly. You need it!

  4. Both places would be amazing, but like the other reader posted, The Sanctuary is a resort so a much less private/intimate setting. I haven't stayed at PB but have dined there several times and it's amazing! I think it would be something different and special for your anniversary! Have you ever been to the Amelia Island Plantation OMNI Resort? HIghly recommend!

  10. You must get the Clarisonic! I got my Mia 2 for Christmas last year and feel like I am getting a mini-facial every time I use it! When I first got it though I was using it in the AM and the PM and found that my skin wasn't loving that, so I switched to just PM and its been working wonders!! No breakouts, makes me feel like I can wear less makeup because my skin is so clear (I am on week 3 of no foundation!). What color are you thinking?

  11. I like my clarisonic but I can't use it more than once a week (I'm not entirely sure what the recommended usage is though..). My skin does feel really clean afterwards, albeit a bit red for a few hours!

    1. It can be used daily (I use mine in the AM and PM)... What cleanser are you using with it? I use Younique's Awake Cleanser and it's AMAZING. I have sensitive skin, but with it and the Clarisonic, my skin has never been happier!

  13. Definitely get the clarisonic! I loooove mine (and my face does too)! Did you like the L'occitane lotion? I do moisturize really well after using the clarisonic. And I want a house tour of your house! I love all the peaks (dining room and Carson's room pls!)
