Sensational Shopping at The Shops of Saddle Creek

Hello friends!  I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend whatever you did!  We had a good relaxing weekend and got some much needed rejuvenation!  I have been so busy the past couple of weeks.  During that time I had the pleasure of attending a blogger event at The Shops of Saddle Creek.  I was so excited about it because Saddle Creek is my favorite sensational shopping destination in town.  It has always been good and in the past couple of years has become even better. They built on to the shopping center and added some much needed wonderful retail shops to the area.  We had the opportunity to go to four different shops for different activities and came home with lots of fun and…

Exploring Luxury Eyewear at Eye Society in Memphis

Hello friends! This is going to be a fun post for me! I get to tell you something you probably did not know about me! Then I get to tell you about a fun shop right here in Memphis, TN!  First, the fun fact about me. I am a Certified Optician! Yes, I totally am! I got certified last year and worked in Optical for almost two and a half years! Crazy I know.  Fashion to Optical, what is up with that? Well, first of all eyewear is now a big fashion accessory if you are not aware!  It is not just a pair of glasses to see with anymore. Fashion has taken over the eyewear world and made it pretty amazing. Now you don’t…

The Invisible Influence of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel

I did the following presentation at The Dixon Gallery & Gardens Munch and Learn on Wednesday, March 28.  The only thing I did not included in this are the lovely pictures because I did not want to infringe on any copyright laws. The image above is one of my own. It does contain a book I purchased that is more of a coffee table book; not one that I enjoyed reading. It has great pictures if you are interested and is called Chanel and her world. The one that I enjoyed reading was Mademoiselle “Coco” Chanel and The Pulse of History.  I skipped through most of the political stuff in it. If you enjoy politics than this is definitely the book to get! This presentation…

Art & Fun in Memphis: Dixon Gallery & Gardens

Hey friends! Are you ready for some art and fun in Memphis!  Well, you better get ready! Your going to see so many amazing pictures in this post! I am so excited to tell you about my visit to the Dixon Gallery & Gardens here in Memphis, TN! I am discovering through blogging that we have some really beautiful places here in Memphis.  I am somewhat of a homebody so it sometimes takes others to get me out of the house! It’s sad but true.  I got an invite to the Dixon Gallery & Gardens and I’m so glad I did.  A few of us local bloggers went and met Amy Lawrence, Communications Associate, and got a wonderful tour of the grounds and the gallery. …

My New Favorite Toiletry Bag

Hey ladies!  I am taking a break from my fashion posts today because I want to tell you about an awesome toiletry bag I recently purchased!  We all need a good bag to put shampoo bottles and our daily beauty products in when we travel.  These days most of us have a good many of them.  My husband had one request when we got married and that was to only have a few bottles in the shower and under the sink.  HA!  Fourteen years later and that has never happened! I am overflowing with things under my sink, on top of the sink and in the shower. Poor guy!  I never asked him if he was joking about that but he has not pressed upon…

How to Become an Effective Shopper

Hey friends!  Do you like to shop?  I know most people think that all women like to shop but I know lots of woman that don’t. It is a frustrating process for them and they have trouble deciding.  I get it!  This actually is what provides me a job. There is really an “art” to it.  I have become a professional shopper over the past 20 years of my life.  My retail background has just made me really good at it.  I shop for lots of people in my family and friends.  I also professionally shop for clients and my goal with my blog is to be able to help more people. It is amazing the amount of choices there are for women these days! …

Ilymix Scarves and Beanies

Hey there ladies!   I am a huge fan of companies that want to provide great quality and service to their customers.  One of these companies that I want to introduce you to today is Ilymix.  They are an accessories company out of China that I have recently had the pleasure of collaborating with.  I will never collaborate with a company or brand that I do not believe in or like their products.  I tested this one out before I would agree to do the collaboration.  I have to say I really like the products and the ordering process was quick and easy.   I can’t tell you how great it is over long term yet but so far so good.  Keep reading to find out more…
