Where I found it – living room style

I always get asked where I find things in our house so I thought I would give a little peek. You definitely don’t have to spend a lot…though you will.

Starting out we both had futons for couches,¬†so we’ve come along way! Don’t be afraid to take your time and peruse. Use online sites like overstock.com to find what you are looking for and take your time. It’s okay to slowly build your pieces, you don’t want to deplete your savings trying to decorate in one big swoop. Rome wasn’t built in a day people!

golden eats: richmond, va

Boy do I have a good recommendation for anyone visiting Richmond, Virginia. Right in the center of the historic river district lies a gem, Juleps: New Southern Cuisine. Of course I had to try their mint julep and fried green tomatoes [one of my favorite foods].

Their fried green tomatoes were really unique in that they came on top of pimento cheese. I don’t know why thats not standard, because its amazing. Definitely worth a stop in. Their mint julep on the other hand was so strong it was hardly enjoyable.

Oh and who could deny the beauty of this train station?

Feel first class, while flying in cargo

Here I am getting back into the blogging game. I wanted to start a new series on traveling because while some of us have the opportunity to do it frequently, its very evident that some that do not and traveling, especially air travel, is very overwhelming.

In an effort to reduce amateur-hour at the airport here is the first of many tips I have!

Baltimore

Is there anything better than picking up right where you left off with a friend? This summer I visited Chelsea in Baltimore and though we haven’t lived in the same city for countless years, we talk (read: gchat) daily and never skip a beat when we are together. We had the most perfect weekend filled with lots of brunch, new lipstick finds (will blog about later) and laughs.

It has been so BUSY!
New job- technically, new career. Vacations! Weekends away!
But I’m back and here to share some of these fun things!

We went to the Outerbanks with both of our families and had such a wonderful time.
Obviously, the first place JPS and I went was… for donuts at Duck Donuts!

They fry them fresh to order… they have awesome flavors (even a maple bacon, bottom left)

We spent some time on the beach… (look at that STUD!)
