Today’s Etsy Spotlight just makes me feel happy. I LOVE fun sprinkle mixes, and so do my kids. Both Lilly and Fletcher love to load up their after school ice cream (frozen yogurt) with fun sprinkle mixes – and Sweetapolita has the cutest assortment! There are over 200 different sprinkle medleys with fun themes like “flight of the unicorn“, “pop tart“, and “mermaid magic“.

They’re pretty much the most fun pantry staple you can have, and they make great hostess gifts, too! Shop Sweetapolita sprinkles here. She’s even made a dessert recipe book!

That vintage woven bag is the result of a long search I did about two weeks ago. I ended up buying this one (and love it)! And aren’t those cotton candy favors the cutest for a party?

I’m excited to share my recent partnership with Macy’s to highlight their big Home Sale that’s currently happening right now. It’s the perfect time to bring some fun and fashionable updates to your home :)

In case you haven’t noticed, I have a thing for collecting dining and entertaining pieces. My dream is to have a perfectly organized butler’s pantry full of dishes and glassware that I can mix and match for any occasion – which is totally inspired by Martha Stewart’s amazing butler’s pantry (has anyone else seen it?). I can dream. Family meals are obviously such a big part of our life (do anyone else’s kids want to eat 12 times a day?) and it keeps things fun for me to have a nice table setting.

Pretty and fun tablescapes with an emphasis on “family friendly” are key around here. Like low glassware that is easy for little hands to grip but also feels luxurious enough for sipping wine, too.

Macy’s home is a great place to find home inspiration! They carry many of my favorite brands (Kate Spade, Martha Stewart, Ralph Lauren) at good prices. And right now you can get find fun, fashionable favorites at 30% – 50% off!

I love this Kate Spade dining collection because it’s versatile enough to be appropriate any time of day – breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Plus you can never go wrong with blue and white. I love it coordinated with the woven placemats and gold silverware.

It’s been about a month so it’s probably time to upload a bunch of life lately pictures :)


Last weekend I had such a fun day with friends at floatilla, which is basically a day of floating down the river on rafts. Naturally somehow Gray and I showed up in the same damn swimsuit!! Hand to heart this was not planned.

All the floats were tied up together with a boat that had a band playing. It was pretty amazing.

Sun and water has pretty much been the theme of our summer. :) These two are little fish!

(I’m wearing this black swimsuit)


Lots of time logged in out here with friends.




We managed a few days at Coral House on Harbour Island with our friends Adam and Anna. It was so much fun!

(I’m wearing one of my favorite rhode resort dresses)


Sitting incognito poolside wearing this stripe swimsuit.




While Anna’s baby floats around like an instagram waiting to happen. But really how cute is that flamingo float?




Harbour Island always has the prettiest gates and flowers.




Found a new home in the kitchen for our tequila sign.





Pretty Mirth floor at Coral House.

Took a boat to see the pigs. So ridiculous and cute. I was terrified to actually let them eat out of my hand. I have a video but there is no way I’m ever showing it.

I feel like these nap photos are becoming a thing for us :)

Spoleto finale at Middleton Plantation. Such a fun annual concert.




We were in FL for a few days for a family wedding – it was real hot but so much fun!




I’m wearing a similar dress to this one, these gumball earrings, these blue sandals, and this banana clutch.

Had another installment with my Kiawah group at Jess’s family beach house. I had an astrology reading (found out I should try doing fire chants – I think I should), and just had an all around great time with some pretty amazing Charleston lady friends.

New Hart tassel earrings :)




Dinner at one of our favorite family spots, Vintage! It’s so cute and they have amazing pizza.




Made it out to brunch with these real pretty girlfriends. I’m wearing a Roberta Roller Rabbit dress.




Staying up late night hunting for crabs :)





My most favorite skincare line ever – True Botanicals – just came out with a new collection called Basics, which is anything but. I’ve used TB for over a year and legit think it’s the best products I’ve ever used on my skin.

And my happiest face for just being in Charleston after a few too many nights out of town this summer. It really is my favorite place ever.




And I’m wearing this dress which I have in 2 colors and love. Love that little lindroth birkin basket, too :)
