...random thoughts for Monday.

I'm going through rounds of job interviews, but still haven't landed my "big girl" job.  This has its perks, you know.  Ladies like myself get to lay out by the pool, immersed in the latest issue of InStyle.

In the mag, I found the cutest thing in the "Deals & Steals" section...

Tili Reusable Zip & Seal Bags

Tili has created practical, functional zip & seal reusable bags that look fabulous! A zip & seal bag that adds color, design, fun and a little privacy to any purse, knapsack, gym bag, outfit or for that matter any closet or drawer. 

I have found that using ziploc baggies is the easiest way to stay organized when packing for a trip.  How precious are these baggies!  
The bags come in packs of 12.  You can choose either the gallon-size ($8.49) or the quart-size ($7.49).


Did you know that you shouldn't wear the same bra two days in a row? According to InStyle, professionals advise this because the bra's elastic needs time to recuperate in order to maintain its stretch.


Hello, I just realized we have a Lululemon in Charleston! 
I can finally found out what the fuss is all about!

I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing...
...I really don't need to fall in love with a $90 pair of workout pants. 


So, the Bachelorette premieres tonight!

This gives me a thrill to think about, as I'm such a Bachelor/Bachelorette sucker.

When I googled "The Bachelorette," this video popped up.  It doesn't really give anything away at all, just mainly a little teaser!  It made me even MORE excited for the show tonight!


Speaking of bachelorettes, did y'all hear that Brad returned Emily's engagement ring to NBC?

According to a close source (as reported by US Weekly), Emily wanted her life back.  Oh, and Brad keeps drunk-dialing her still.  I LOVED them together, but I knew from the "After the Rose" show that it wouldn't last.  Emily changed from a sweet little angel to Miss Sassypants.  
But, that's just my two cents.


Happy Monday!

PS. WHY is the person that lives above me running around like a crazy person? WHY?  Oh, the joys of living in a first-floor condo.  Move out day is next weekend.  Hallelujah!

 PPS. Don't you hate when this happens to you?  

Ugh! Now I have to cut them all! 

PPPS.  Look at the view Brandon and I had on our beach stroll last night:

...taken on my droid. Oh, I wish I had a nice, fancy camera! Once again, this does not do the view justice! 



  1. Which beach were you on? That picture is breathtaking! That's an interesting choice for the Bachelorette. We'll have to see how she does!

  2. I am so jealous you get to have night strolls on the beach whenever you want!

  3. I had NO idea about the bra thing. I wear mine like 2 sometimes 3 days in a row...haha oops!

  4. This post is full of great things. Thanks for the heads up on the Tili bags. I am definitely going to get on ordering those! They are precious!!

    I did not know Charleston had a lululemon. I have been wanting to know what all the fuss was about myself, but like you, can't stand the thought of falling in love with ninety dollar workout pants or ordering something online that expensive to return it. I will have to check the store out next time I am visiting my sister!

    I can't wait for The Bachelorette either!!! Did not know the latest about the ring!!

  5. OMG! I really want to see the The Bachelorette, too!

  6. Yay for the Bachelorette and Lululemon! I've been dying to get a pair of the wunder crops. $80 price tag, notsomuch! I may have to stick my Nike's for a while.

  7. love the storage bags..super cute!!

  8. I loved everything about this post! I am watching the bachelorette now as I type. I am not a huge Ashley fan but I never miss a bachelor bacherolette season! I have been dying to get some lululuemon gear but I am afraid it will make me hate my cheap target workout gear!

  9. 1. I am mildly obsessed with your wall color
    2. ummm hello, is that serious? the beach stroll looks like perfection
    3. What are your thoughts on living in Charleston? I need a change.


  10. The nail thing happens ALL The frig time to me it blows!!!!!

    What is the luluemon? You'll have to fill me in!

  11. Girl, we are on the same page! I also get InStyle and LOVE it! Those baggies are so cute and I also thought the thing about not wearing bras more than 2 days in a row as interesting. I also just got those Lululemon yoga pants the other day....so excited to wear them! I missed the bachelorette episode tonight, but cant wait to watch it tomorrow! Love the series!

  12. How cute are those ziploc bags!!!! I have some really great news on the paperback version of my 1st novel. I'd love for you to head over and check it out! Have a great night doll! Kori xoxo


  13. I want those baggies!! I always have a nail breaking, so annoying. And I'm really disappointed about Brad/Emily..you're right she totally went Mrs. Sassypants and he's not the greatest either; too bad :( I watched tonight and loved Lucas and William! And lastly, I reeeeally want some of these Luluemon pants the blogging world is raving about! Happy Monday! Virginia

  14. Just came across your adorable blog! Loving reading all your posts! The Bachelorette was pretty crazy last night! Good luck with the job search!

    Enjoying your blog! :)

  15. Meg! The nail thing JUST happened to me THIS MORNING! Haha - and a Lululemon store just opened in Southpark Mall which is just south of Charlotte, I am so excited/not because I will be spending WAYY to much money there!!! Hope all is well girl! Just saw your blog since Im trying to be so blog-a-licious now :) Hehehe!

  16. Hmmm..that bra tip makes total sense, but is a bad thing given I tend to wear the same one most of the time! Also, sad to hear about Emily and Brad. Ugh, Ashley annoys me but I love the Bachelorette and last night did not disappoint!

  17. First, I love those re-usable bags. And second, I'm also in Charleston and love how gorgeous this place is, even without a fancy camera, the beach picture is still awesome. Just starting following!

  18. Such a cute blog! I love Charleston!! :)

  19. youll find your big girl job! the beach looks beautiful!

  20. 1. I love your blog :)
    2. I want those reusable bags!
    3. I knew Brad and Emily wouldn't last...lame of them though.
    4. The people who live above me run around too. And up the stairs like a herd of elephants- annoying!


  21. So jellie you have night strolls on the beach whenever! I'd love that!

  22. umm will be saving a pic of the ring.. just in case anyone needs any ideas haha .. how gorgeous is it?? hope everything's going well! Congrats on your new job!
