Fine Print: Pink Lies

There are few things that I love more than sitting down with a good book. Seriously though - what's better than lighting a candle with a new read (or propping yourself in a lounge chair poolside). But another thing I love? Gals who are the ultimate #girlbosses, and that is what Haley Todd Kitts is. I met Haley in college and can remember countless times we sat near each other at the library or saw each other out and about. Flash-forward 7 years after our freshman year (how has it been that long?!), and Haley is now a published writer!

Wedding Wednesday

It's hard to believe I am starting a Wedding Wednesday series! In so many ways, it's still so surreal that Stephen and I are planning our wedding - but I am most definitely thrilled and on cloud 9 about so many things. I've gotten a lot of questions about our wedding planning thus far, and though there are some things we'll keep to ourselves, there are some details I can't wait to share throughout the next 10 months!

Stepping Into Fall

Happy Fall! Though the weather was still warm here over the weekend, the air definitely felt a hint of fall - the breeze was a lot cooler and even just walking outside, it seemed a lot more like a fall day. Now, we're probably still a ways away from wearing a blanket scarf but I'm not complaining all that much.

A Little Pupdate

What a crazy few days it has been! If you follow along on Instagram and Snapchat, you may have seen a few posts about my dog Sophie. She has been a little under the weather off and on for the last couple of months which has resulted in multiple vet trips, fluids, medicine - all that good stuff. The thing about it all was that we could never find a rhyme or reason - she could be acting perfectly fine with terrible stomach problems so it was hard to figure out if she'd just gotten into something or if she was truly sick.

Goodbye, Summer

How in the world is it the last day of summer? This summer has been an incredible one and I'm not quite ready to say goodbye to it. I feel like I was just gearing up for warm weather - though I don't think our warm weather is leaving us anytime soon - and now tomorrow is the first day of fall. Last fall was full of change for me: I moved back to Wilmington and started a new job, among other things, so I'm excited to see what this new season has in store.

Bright-Eyed Beauty Routine

One thing I love? Gals who start their own businesses. I met Dana Evans through the Miss North Carolina Organization as she was Miss NC in 2003! She's a lady who does it all - she is Brand Manager for the North State Journal (NC's only statewide newspaper), she teaches Pure Barre, and she has her own cosmetic and skincare line! I know I've missed something in all of that but it's safe to say she is doing it all!
