I have so much to share this Saturday.  Let’s jump to it!

Yesterday was our brand new Trader Joe’s grand opening (just 5 minutes from my house).  I’ve never lived near a Trader Joe’s so I’m pumped.  Lilly and I (being the avid shoppers that we are) of course had to go and check it out on opening day.  It was PACKED.  The lines were so crazy that I didn’t even bother purchasing anything, but founds a lot of fun things for next time.  Do you have favorite Trader Joe’s products?  I’ve heard their pizza dough is fabulous.  I snapped this picture as we were walking in. 

I had coffee with Julia of Pawley’s Island Posh blog yesterday too.  We’ve been blog buddies for almost a year and this was our first time to meet.  To say that I adore her even more now is a major understatement.  We didn’t snap a picture but I snagged this one from her blog.  Isn’t she and her little girl adorable?! 

Glitter Guide just posted this lipstick personality chart to their facebook page.  I tend to keep my lipstick close to the original shape which apparently means that I’m quite reserved- so it definitely didn’t get it right.  Is it right for you?
Did you see my girl Sally Benedict in the August/September issue of Garden & Gun?  So beautiful. I snapped a quick photo with my phone.
About a week ago I discovered that I had forgotten my hair straightener at the hotel in San Diego!  Since it had been a week since we had checked out I didn’t figure I would have much luck getting it back, but when I called the Grand Del Mar they did indeed have it!  Yay!  I just got it in the mail, which really only reminded me of our vacation.  Did I tell you how wonderful the Grand Del Mar was?  It was beautiful and the service was absolutely amazing.  And for being such a nice resort, they were SO great with kids too!  Did I tell you that every night they left chocolate covered oreos during turndown service?  Heaven.  I sure do miss it.  Here’s a picture of us at the zoo.

And now for the Stella & Dot winners!  Congratulations to Julie of Julip Made (15) and Megan of Fried Green Pickles (165).  You each win a $75 gift card to Stella & Dot.  Email Annette at Can’t wait to see what you pick.

Just laid my eyes on Kelly Wearstler’s Resort collection, I LIKE!

With prices ranging from $58 (for a shirt) to $450 (average dress price) it looks like Kelly’s style might just be attainable too.

Jewels too.

They’ll be hitting Kelly’s site in August.

The last few days Charleston has been hit with some much needed rain.  Which of course got me thinking that I need a new pair of rainboots.  I have a cute casual pair that I’ve had for about 4 years but I would really like a slightly dressier pair too.  Right now these are all catching my eye.

I’m really drawn to J.Crew’s Weatherby rainboot too.  Though I’d probably want them in black.
Have you seen any other great pairs out there lately?

And on a random note, last night Josh surprised me with an evening at the spa.  So sweet!  Unfortunately my massage was literally SO bad that I had to ask him to stop and I just left in the middle of it (it wasn’t going to be a quick fix like the “lighten the pressure” or anything).  Has this ever happened to anyone?  I’m not going to share the location b/c I really like the spa and they did handle the situation so well.  I guess sometimes you just don’t mesh!
