“you seem like someone who makes ordinary things seem extra ordinary”.  

Happy Friday, my friends!

It’s August and I’ve never been so hot.  I think my brain might be boiling. Is that normal for New Orleans?  Today we’re backing away from our stovetop and shunning the oven.  It’s time for an August Getaway… GIVEAWAY style!!

Here are a few of my recent favorites for you to pack up, snack on, primp up, doodle down, and read through.  I want you to have them!

GIVEAWAY! Booyakah!

1.  I’m the first person to tell you that you don’t need a dang blanket in the middle of August!  It is not chilly!  I can’t even remember the last time I was cold!  But I can remember the last time I needed a blanket to sit out for a Summer picnic! This West Elm Perfect Throw makes for a lovely picnic situation and transitions very well into the more cozy winter months.

2.  Meet the Everlane Weekender Bag!  It’s the perfect carry-on bag.  It’s the perfect bag to toss in the back seat of the car for a weekend road trip. Classic  stylings.  No frills.  Just right.  I love this bag!

3.  I want you to have my very favorite nail polish!  Super easy to apply, long wear, modern colors, lots of gloss and extra sass.  These Revlon Colorstay Gels are Summer weekend colors!

4.  Beach reading.  Mountain cabin reading.  Air-conditioned hotel reading.  I hope you get away, put down the Instagram, and read a good book on this Kindle Reader.  I’m reading The Invention of Wings.

5.  I’m an avid doodler.  Swirls, blocks, faces, flowers, and eyes are my go-to doodles.  Doodling helps us pay attention!  Doodle in style in this classic Moleskine.

6.  Lips to match our nails. I mean… why not get-away with a little flair?  Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain.

7.  Pens for our doodle!  I love these colorful felt tip pens!  They’re like grown-up markers.  Totally acceptable for scribbles, doodles, notes, and writing boss-lady checks.

8.  Snacks!  Forever with the snacks!  These barkTHINS satisfy all cravings.  They’re thin chocolate bites packed with almond, coconut, pretzels, or little bits of peppermint.  Chocolate, sweet, crunch, and salt!  I’m sooooo into these!  Of course you’ll have to eat them fast enough so they don’t melt, but that shouldn’t be a problem.

9.  ALOHA!!!  These super supreme green juice powder packs are an amazing way to jumpstart a drowsy morning.  I mix mine into a glass of orange juice and I’ve got some pep in my step!

10.  There’s nothing wrong with being prepared just in case getaways go awry.  These UrgentRx medicine packs are incredible because they’re flat packs of fruit flavored powder medicine.  No water required.  I have a few of these in my purse for emergencies.  Super helpful!

11.  Always be ready for wine.  Always!  This Bottle Stock painted corkscrew and leather pouch is perfect to throw in your new weekend bag.  Open your wine in style!  If you can’t wait for your pretty corkscrew and pouch, snag it now for 15% off!  Discount code: WINEJOY.  Offer good until Sunday August 10th.

  1. A teacher told me I was a great writer. It was my first week in college, so it meant a lot to me and still gives me conference.

  2. Great giveaway! I was told by a total stranger that I have beautiful eyes and then he said everyone probably tells you that, right? Little things are nice to hear.

  3. One of the best compliments I’ve ever received was “You’re a really great listener.” I always try to actively listen to other people’s stories and remember their names because I always appreciate when others do that with me!

  4. I absolutely adore your blog! This giveaway makes me want all the nice things. Best compliment I’ve ever received: After an extremely difficult cycling class, a total stranger came up to me and breathlessly said, “You ride like an Olympian.” It wasn’t even a little true, but I was flattered that someone noticed how hard my sweaty self was working. :)

  5. I am a very low maintenance type of girl so whenever anyone compliments my hair or look I really appreciate it. It’s natural, it’s me and it is what it is, so when someone likes it, they like me. I really take it to heart.
