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.

If you're in the market for some nice leather goods at moderate prices I highly recommend giving Brahmin a visit - I didn't see any purses over $425 and most were in the $200 - $300 range. The ladies at the Saddle Creek location are so sweet and helpful so I'm sure whatever your budget they can help you find the perfect item.

*** All opinions in the post are my own. Brahmin was so kind to gift me the Madison crossbody, during the grand opening I also purchased an Ady wallet with my own money***

Sensible Portions

I'm Sometimes you have to recognize your strengths and when it's time to outsource . For me a healthy lifestyle is not a strength. I love the idea of eating small healthy meals and working out everyday but then I get hangry and eat anything in sight. Or I have a busy weekend and don't have time to meal prep, and then I'm screwed for the week and one bad week turns into a bad month, and a bad year and a decade of gaining weight. So, when a sorority sister posted a meal plan she had found success with I was very interested. Shaun and I tried a similar program last year but it was very expensive ($170 for one person for 5 days) That's a great investment if you need to lose 10 or 20 lbs but when you have a lot to lose you need a long term plan that is viable from a time, nutrition and financial aspect. 
Long term it's still pricey but I was very impressed with the value and results of sensible portions and decided to give it a try. Like most meal plans the plan is …

Botox

So, I get botox, only under my eyes, 3 units each at $12 a unit, that's $72. I do not tip because it's done by a nurse and nurses are not supposed to accept tips, plus she owns the company, so $72 flat. This is less than fancy eye cream I bought that was worthless. So what does it do? Well . . .


For those who have never had it here's what happens: You go to a spa or medical office and make your appointment. The first time you talk about what you're wanting the results to be. I strongly recommend doing your research on how many units, start low, you can always go back for more. I did two units under each eye the first time and I'm very happy having gone up to 3, but I was quite satisfied with 2. You then lay down on a chair that's similar to the ones at the dentist office, only way higher. For me getting it under the eyes I just stare at the ceiling while the nurse holds in skin taunt and injects it in, one one needle prick per spot, no unit so thank goodness …

Five Closet Essentials for Every Woman

Getting dressed doesn’t have to be complicated, but how many times have you gone into your closet and said I have nothing to wear? Personally I like clothes and I like having a closet full of clothes but I recognize that there is such a thing of too much of a good thing and too much can make it overwhelming. 
1. Black Pants  A pair of black pants can take you anywhere - work, school, running errands, out to dinner. Personally I’m a fan of a slim fit ankle pant because it think it’s not too formal for all my non work occasions but nice enough to wear to the office. 
2. A shift style dress  To me this is another wear it anywhere article of clothing if you get it in a nice but casual fabric. I think there’s a little flexibility here depending on your lifestyle - if you’re a busy professional would would wear this dress to work frequently I would recommend a more formal fabric for your dress vs stay at home moms or women who work in a casual environment. 
3. Solid color tee  Although typ…

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

Plum Paper Designs - Fitness Insert

I know I say this every year but this year I also want to make wellness / fitness a priority. It's hard for me to get in the mindset of making it important because quite frankly it's not something my doctor gets onto me about. But during 2015 I've been making a switch to a more natural lifestyle and that has put fitness back at my top of mind. So, for $4.50 I got the fitness section added onto my Plum Paper Designs Planner 
Here's what's inside: 

A summary sheet at the front: 

A monthly layout for 12 months
Weight Loss Tracker at the Back 

I LOVE the monthly layout! First off, having a hydration tracker for each day is going to be so nice. I also love the idea of holding myself accountable to writing down an activity (or excuse) each day. Most of all I love the recognition that each month will have different goals and includes some note sections ; one thing I hear a lot form people who successfully got fit was that they had some kind of tracking and were able to go back…
