Who has tried The Laundress household cleaning products? I met the lovely ladies who created the company at The Southern C Summit and immediately felt the urge to shell out for their clothing detergent. It's supposed to be better for your clothes than dry cleaning.... and much better for the environment, too. I could get on board with that, just wondering if any of you have tried it? Worth it?
I haven't said anything about this on here before, but my mom has been very sick for the past year. I just never really felt good about bringing it up, but it's definitely something that has weighed heavy on my heart... seeing her struggling has been tough. She has Ulcerative Colitis and has had a lot of bumps in the road resulting in many hospital stays, work disability, etc. The reason I'm suddenly bringing this up today is because I often forget how great of a network I have with all of you. She is having to change out her treatment from Remicade to Humira, we think. Has anyone had an experience with Humira or a family member who has been on it? Just curious what the overall consensus is on the drug. Googling anything medical-related can be scary.
These shoes are precious.
"Life is about trusting your feelings, taking chances, finding happiness, learning from the past, and realizing everything changes." I really love this quote.
I have a super hard time eating healthy. I know if I could just stick with it for a couple weeks, it would seem second nature. I really want to do another Suja Fresh Start Program. I've definitely been better with my eating since I did mine, but I still need to majorly improve. The thought of grilled chicken and veggies almost makes me rather starve. I would love to know of any savory, healthy recipes you may have!
Brandon is currently painting our porch ceilings haint blue (we are using "Piazza Blue" by Sherwin Williams). Blue porch ceilings are a tradition in the south. Way back when, people believed this blue/green shade (called "haint") kept evil spirits from entering their homes. These days, it's just a nod to the old tradition. This is what a haint blue porch ceiling looks like... now if only I can get that porch, too. #goals
Speaking of our southern culture, I've never been so proud to be a Charleston girl. The way our city and entire state has come together in an embracing spirit after such a terrible massacre is moving, to say the least. Please continue to pray with me for those nine families and all of those affected. This is Charleston.
I'm probably going to be loading more things on my blog sale later this week—maybe later today, actually. So be on the lookout. I am just so over looking at things I don't use. I've been throwing things out like crazy around here and have donation piles all over the place. I am taking a bunch of clothes to goodwill tomorrow, but there are some things I would like to sell...things I've only worn lightly or not at all—so check back on that blog sale soon! (It's under the "shop" tab at the top.)
I really want to start a candle company. I know this sounds random, but I have thought of this a lot lately. I hate to say it out loud because it most likely will never happen, but who knows. I think it would be fun. I love luxurious candles. It's my favorite indulgence and I can never have enough. They just bring about an inviting atmosphere. When you think about it, candles are lit on special occasions—when you have company over, when you're wanting to feel cozy, or maybe in a romantic setting. I love that a candle kind of goes along with these happy occasions. This one is my newest favorite. The smell is better than anything I could ever imagine.
Does anyone follow someone on Snapchat that is absolutely hilarious? I am so into snapchat these days (I like watching other people's stories more than I like making my own). Every night, Brandon and I lay down in bed and watch snap stories...it's just kind of a nightly ritual before we go to sleep. I would love to follow some funny peeps! Do share. :)
This is totally random and not an affiliate link or anything, but you honestly should visit RugsUSA.com. They have 75% off sales all the time, like right now, but ending today. I am obsessed with their jute and sisal rugs! (It's what we have in our living and dining rooms.)
Lastly, does anyone have any blog post recommendations? Someone recently asked for a post highlighting my favorite travel accessories, so I'm planning on that one soon. :)
I just really want a doughnut!
