Happy Valentine’s Day! This week was filled with a high and a low. We found out the house we were about to put an offer on (the only home we have LOVED for months) has a flood level elevation that is too low. If we bought it, we’d be paying astronomical flood insurance and would have a hard time reselling it. You know how you picture your life in a house and heck, you’ve even got that board pinned on Pinterest. I mean… you just see yourself there? And then it’s taken out from underneath you quicker than your favorite dress sells out on a Gilt sample sale? (I know you know that feeling.) So yeah, back to square one. On the other hand… the high. Mum was the word until yesterday, but I am officially the new beauty editor for The Everygirl. My first feature went up yesterday and it’s got photos galore that explain steps to achieve two complete beauty looks for Valentine’s Day.
In other news…
From the moment I found this recipe, I knew it might make all of my dreams come true.
This is such a cute Valentine’s idea …and it totally makes me want a doughnut!
Discovered this artist and fell in love.
This is probably my favorite link of the week: The One Year Wardrobe Resolution. Christi (also from SC!) is documenting her one year journey about learning to be happy with what she has and discovering that less really is more. She has made the commitment to not buy one single thing for herself all year (Can you even fathom that? I sadly can’t). But she has done so much more than that already! Just take a look at her Facebook (or instagram). She is living the “pay it forward” mentality and spreading it to those around her. I love it!
Sales to shop this weekend…
Gap is having their “Best of Sale” event right now and there’s some amazing deals you don’t want to miss. This stripe sweatshirt dress is on my radar, as are these always skinny skimmer jeans. Oh, and this utility jacket.
