Shop Memphis - Saddle Creek

In my house April kicks off gift season - there's my MIL's birthday and hubby's birthday in April, Mother's Day and my Dad's birthday in May, Father's Day in June and then finally after all that shopping for other people my birthday is in July. Between working full time and blogging on the weekends the last thing I need when looking for the perfect gift is to run all over town so I really like going to The Shops Saddle Creek in Germantown - it doesn't hurt that they have lots of stores I like too. Saddle Creek is somewhere I've been shopping since high school and the collection of stores seems to only get better with time.
 
vomFASS is a really fun and unique store, walking past in the past I thought it was simply and olive oli and vinegar store but there's so much more - wines, liqueurs , whiskey, and beauty products  oh my! Also, everything is available to be sampled in store so you know exactly what you're getting before you buy.
Oh, when I said Olive Oil did you think I meant the had a few varieties? There's dozens to choose from , same goes for the vinegars.
There is a great variety of bottle to choose from if you are getting oil and vinegar - I love this because it makes it a little more personal and decorative. 
These are all whiskeys, I'm pretty sure Shaun is going to be getting a basket of small bottles to have a whiskey tasting for his birthday.
 
Southern Avenue Company is a beautiful home and gift store. The owner has exquisite taste and it's just a wonderfully curated store. Ladies, this is the type of store you acquaint the man in your life that isn't the best gift giver with because there's nothing that would be a terrible gift inside.  With Wedding Season right around the corner this is also the perfect spot to get a gift for engagement parties and showers.
 The perfect gift for any Memphis home
Pretty purses and accessories
I would so love to do this in my dining room

The jewelry selection is very lovely and there's a nice variety of price points from "just a little happy" to "oh la la". 
 
Paper Source might be the store I frequent the most at Saddle Creek - I love stationary so much y'all! But I had a never taken one of their workshops so it was fun to get to make some banners recently.
 How cute will these be for my home office?
 
Indigo has a well established reputation for the place to go for high quality in style women's fashion. You can just tell walking in here that everything is personally selected - this store is basically every fashionista's dream closet.  
 
 Perfectly selected trends in clothing and accessories
 Fun and fashionable jewelry - lots of bauble bar and Kendra Scott, my favs!
 All the hottest handbags
 And the best shoes collection (this is just a small corner of shoes)
 
 
Rise Biscuits, Donuts and Righteous Chicken is the newest addition to The Shops of Saddle Creek and while I like the other restaurants it's nice to see a fast casual place - all that shopping can work up and appetite! Plus, it is SUPER nice that there's some place to get a chicken biscuit on a Sunday.

 
I can't decide which I like more - the pimento cheese and friend chicken biscuit or the lamp biscuit - guess I need to try them both again to try and figure it out.

 
The donuts are AMAZING, I'm not usual one for maple treats as I'm a chocolate girl but OMG, so good!
 
It's so nice to have such a nice variety of shops and a yummy place to eat in one location, with several new stores opening in the coming months I'm excited to go back and keep checking out new places.

$40 Date at Old Dominick

Lately I've been turning Friday into finance Friday around here and while budgeting and spending appropriately is all super important I think it's important for y'all to know that being financially responsible isn't all excel , numbers and paperwork. So, I'm resurrecting a series I used to post here - $40 Dates! The idea is pretty simple - every couple needs a date night (or afternoon) whether you're newly dating or married with five kids and a date night doesn't always have to mean getting dressed up and having an expensive dinner - in fact I think the best way to keep your dates fun and stress free is by making sure they're not a financial burden, because date night shouldn't be put on the back burner either. It's been a few years since I started this concept and when I told myself I need to do better about date night in my own marriage I seriously considered upping the spend to $50 but here's the deal - $40 is super easy and it's a …

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…

Body Confidence

I have people tell me a lot that "I'm so confident" with such a tone of surprise and while really I think it's just that I'm a plus size women who happens to be loud and doesn't try to hide from the world but sometimes if I'm in a sensitive mood I'll take that as umm, don't you own a mirror, you should maybe be quiet and go to the gym. I'd say about 90% of the time I can say although I don't have my ideal body I don't hate myself and I don't let it keep me from living my life but then there's that 10% of the time . . .

Last week I had such a moment, You may have noticed that my pics I post on social media are either of me standing or are chest up if I'm sitting - now this is partially because I typically only take pics seated if I'm showing off a product so I was a more close up anyway but also here's something this people never have to think about - when you're plus size and you sit down if consolidates all t…

Brahmin Saddle Creek Grand Opening

Earlier this month the new Brahmin store opened at The Shops of Saddle Creek and Memphis could not have been more excited! I arrived right before the doors opened and there was already a crowd formed ready to explore all the goodies inside. Brahmin provided some delicious champagne punch to toast to the grand opening and it wasn't too long after the doors opened that the store was completely full - it took me 1/2 an hour to check out that's how popular the grand opening was! But enough talk, they say a picture is worth a 1,000 words so I'm keeping the text on this post brief and just letting y'all see all the fun inside. Summer 2018 Collection on display right as you walk in   Yummy snacks provided by Brahmin  As you can see, it was very crowded inside The belt bag - can be worn three ways

All the wristlets!

Southern Living Idea House

The week AFTER I got back from Nashville over the summer from my sorority annual trip I received my August Southern Living with the Southern Living Idea House for this year . . . Located in Nashville, TN. So annoying! Sorry sisters that I wasn't on top of knowing about this. However, since I only live 3 hours away I was able to visit. 
The house is on the Fontanel property northwest of nashville , not too far from town but secluded. Once it closes for Southern  Living tours it will re-open February 7th as The Inn at Fontanel. 
Due to the cold weather, they had a tented walkway so we couldn't get an outdoor pic, this photo is from southern living.com : 


Lets head inside . . .  (PS: please appreciate my dedication to sharing the house with you, I usually do not like posting public pics sans makeup)
Upon entry besides being greeted by a beautiful very large and open living room we were welcomed by a lady staffing the house. She was very nice to take our picture by the gorgeous t…
