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.

The Journey

Last week I had the best of intentions of staying active on social media - I was going to post everyday and make all sort of sweet and supportive comments on other peoples pictures and be inspired and inspired others. Instead I wound up facing terrible wifi and screaming at my phone until an unrelated incident made me too sick to care. And while I could have done without the getting sick part and I'm being punished by the instagram algorithm gods this week with super low visibility on my posts but I can't help but feel like for me as a person a week to disconnect was just what I needed and it ended too soon. I don't feel like I need ongoing treatment or therapy but from time to time I fall into a funk and lately that's where I've been - hanging out in a pit of not enough-ness. As a plus size woman society is always going to tell me I'm not pretty enough , thin enough, or healthy enough and for the most part that really doesn't bother me because I feel lik…

$40 Date - Sushi Jimmi

For the longest time in Memphis some of the best sushi in town came from a gas station. Everyone from Memphis reading this is now nodding and smiling and everyone out of town now has now scrunched up their face and is saying "eww". But seriously, "Sushi Jimmi" has been making sushi daily and delivering it to be sold in the little pre-packed containers for years and it is so good. Luckily for Memphians we can now get this delicious sushi fresh and it's a prefect place for a casual date night. Sushi Jimmi is not a fancy or hip décor filled sushi joint - it's in an old Wendy's. But it's clean, convenient and most of all -cheap! Here's the menu: The sushi rolls are very generous! We are able to go and split the crawfish nachos and one sushi roll so with tax and tip we can get out on $30.

Spicy Crawfish Nachos The food comes out pretty quickly so we're usually in and out in an hour leaving us time to catch a movie at the $3 …

Social Media and Spending (Is your favorite blogger a Carrie or a Miranda)

Everyone here is old enough to remember Sex and the City right? I feel like it's mainstream in our pop culture enough that I'm not dating myself too much with my title reference but if you're confused trust me, it will all make sense by the end of this post. One thing I always hesitate to write about is finances, but the reality is its something I personally focus heavily on and so if I'm going to be authentic here (which is my always my goal of course) its really a topic I can't ignore. And I know there's some fellow bloggers reading this now thinking oh girl, no - talking money is no ones business but hear me out - fashion and lifestyle bloggers pretty much tell people what to do with their money with EVERY SINGLE POST so while I'm not saying ever blogger should have to share a screen shot of their bank statement I am pointing out that how one spends their money is highly personal indeed so if bloggers are going to talk buy this, oh girl it's so wor…

Mommy Lhey Little Bits May 2017

I debated posting a review of this month because they were a few issues with the May Little Bits box but I think part of the reason blogger reviews are more trusted than a product advertisement is because they are authentic - at least they are supposed to be. To me it's completely unrealistic that every subscriber is going to love every single item in a subscription so when a review is just constant swooning it seems well,. super fake to me, - and I never want to be like that. The May box arrived in June due to a delay in shipping the notebook - Mommy Lhey was incredibly transparent about the process and provided multiple updates. Hey , stuff happens and at the end of the day it's just stationary items and I think Mommy Lhey handled the process completely professionally and I have no complaints. I was very excited on Monday when I received the box to dig in and see all the goodies:   The contents of the May box with two items missing - I will address that at the end of this …
