Fashion Find Friday - Nola Lilly Love

Happy Fashion Find Friday y'all! 
 
As y'all know, I have abit of a thing for Lilly Pultizer Murfee scarfs. This is my current collection:

 
Ah, these scarfs make me so happy. Sometimes I feel like a collector carefully curating a collection. Over the past two years I've swapped out a lot of scarfs, there's at least 10 I've had at one point no longer here. But I know there's a fine line from collection to obsession, which is why I have capped myslef at 20. Right now I have 19 (technically 16, 2 riley loops and 1 wrap) so I'm really careful about adding to the collection. My big problem is I really love most of the ones I currently have, so swapping out is going to be very difficult. I recently sold a popular in demand print I just didn't love so I could add my latest and today's fashion find, the Louisiana /New Orleans print murfee. Here's the print:



So much going on with this scarf, and I love the color scheme. This print is a limited edition commissioned especially for the new signature store open in Mandeville, which is a suburb of New Orleans. Only 100 of these scarves exist and I just had to have one, it gives me warm fuzzies just thinking of all the college fun I had in NOLA. I think the design team did a great job capturing all the great things, my only wish was the Jackson Cathedral be included, but cafe du monde in the print is pretty cool too. A little bit of info from the commisioning store:
 

Palm Village also has a store in North Carolina and just opened one up in Knoxville. I briefly considered the Knoxville murfee but apparently it features Neyland Stadium, yuck! - No way am I wearing that. But here's a close up of that print since I know there are some UT fan readers.


I saw on their Facebook that the Mandeville store is doing a grand opening tomorrow with gifts to the first 50 customers, so jealous of all my Nola friends - y'all need to go!

Ipsy Ocotber 2017

I thought I had unsubscribed from Ipsy but apparently I just skipped last month so yesterday I had the unexpected surprise of an ipsy bag in the mail. The October bag is really cute and I will absolutely use this as my purse makeup bag. As for the products I have mixed feelings, here's what's inside:   Marc Anthony True Professional  Hydrating Coconut Oil $11.80 I usually don't use a oil in my hair but my ends have been kinda dry and frizzy lately so I figured hey why not. I was pleasantly surprised how this didn't make my hair feel greasy or weighted down and it did make the ends smoother so it's something I would consider purchasing in the future. I do wish it came in different scents, this one smells beachy which is nice but this time of year I'd prefer a less tropical scent.
Dermelect Nail Polish $12 I'm not even going to link to this product I thought it was that awful. I personally am not a fan of the shade but that aside the formula had an awful app…

Sunday Secrets - Behind the Filter

Two weeks ago I posted a "Sunday Secrets" post giving a little insight on the real me vs the social media me and I really enjoyed it and decided to try making it a regular thing. When I first started blogged it was mostly just a journal about my life I shared with my facebook friends filled my thoughts and personal rants. Since "cleaning up" my posts earlier this year I realized that I've missed having that outlet and I've worried that in only talking about this beauty product or that outfit I might be too shallow and it's ok to be a little bit real online sometimes. So today I'm taking about my life behind the instagram filtered lens.

Instagram filtered version of me  Latley I've been a little overwhelmed by adulting. I don't remember my parents ever acting like just being an adult is hard. I was too young to remember much from when my paternal grandfather died but I do remember my maternal grandparents dying within a year of each other a…

Trunk Club Review

Recently I saw the trunk club service advertised on instagram and I was very interested. The service started as a personal shopping service for men but since being purchased by Nordstrom has expanded the service offering to women. The basic premise is something similar to Stich Fix - create a profile providing sizes, likes and dislikes, converse with a stylist and be sent a box with 10 items to try on -keep what you like and send back the rest. This service has a $25 styling fee that is waived for Nordstrom card holders. When I first created my profile I knew that I wanted to add some tops to my wardrobe but I was really looking for a dress to wear to my brother in laws upcoming wedding. I was super excited when my assigned stylist indicated I could request specific items and there were three items I asked to be included. Before the trunk is sent out you have the option to preview, decline any items that are not what you're looking for and then either just get the previewed item…

Nordstrom Rack Memphis

Last week was a big week for Memphis shoppers - our very own Nordstrom Rack opened! I like Nordstrom Rack, it's one of my favorite places to shop online, so I was excited to hear that we were getting one in Memphis.


When visiting the new store I was surprised at how much it reminded me of a TJ Maxx. The home section is much smaller, the shoe section much larger and there's no jewelry case but otherwise it's similar in size, layout and merchandise. One difference I appreciate is that the purse and clothing sections are separated out by designer - so if for example you're looking to buy a Tory Burch bag you don't have to look through all of the bags - they are organized together. Shoes are not separated by specific designer but they are in two areas - regular and designer, which seemed to be shoes over $150 a pair. Super small home section Women's clothing Purses! I really want one of these Rebecca Minkoff bags Pretty earrings For plus sizes I'm torn on ho…

Mommy Lhey Little Bits July and August

I've been terrible about sharing my Little Bits boxes lately, which is really crappy of me because they are so beautiful and definitely deserve to be shared. Each kit comes with patterned papers (double sided), a pouch, notebook, pen, stickers, decorative paper clip, die cuts, washi tape, sequins, sticky notes, clear stamps, a planner charm and bookmarks or dashboards. Trust me, it's a big bang for your buck. To me there's two things that really make the Mommy Lhey kit stand out - while each planner designer is going to have their own aesthetic some tend to follow the same theme every month and it gets well - boring. June had a cactus theme, July is florals and pretty dresses, August does have some floral but has a much sassier feel and September is going to be woodland animals; it's always fun and exciting to see what the theme will be each month and I love that Mommy Lhey releases the theme before the sign up dates so you can decide if it's for you or not. The …
