Wow, what a trip.
I got to spend a week in New York with my favorite gal pals back in July and it was amazing! As you may know, Marla & I assist our super talented photographer friend,Haley Sheffield. She had her first wedding in the big apple, and we got to tag along! We did so many things and ate our way through the city. I’ll try to break it down for you and not make this too terribly long!
We arrived Tuesday, the 22nd and went to this sweet cafe called Lucid in Queens. We planned our day and headed to Times Square, a tourist must, of course! Being a couple of Georgia peaches we ate at Southern Hospitality, which happened to be Justin Timberlake’s restaurant. SO good, I had these spring rolls filled with fried pimento mac and cheese. What?! We ended the day in Central Park with some ice cream.
The next days all involved amazing food, like Shake Shack, the best cheeseburger I’ll ever eat. We had the best doughnut in NYC at Pies & Thighs in Williamsburg, amazing gelato at Chelsea Market, The Meatball Shop changed my life, Dylan’s candy bar did not disappoint, I mean you have to go if you are ever in NY. It was a dream come true for this candy lover. I’m a huge fan of Love Taza, and she has some of the best suggestions on where to eat & shop in NY. One of the places her and her cute family visit frequently is Bubby’s. It was delicious and the vintage photo booth downstairs is a must! We celebrated Marla’s birthday while we were there and we went to another place Naomi recommended, an Indian restaurant called Milon. You guys, this place was incredible. The ceiling is decked out in Christmas lights upon Christmas lights. Such a fun experience. We ended that night at a comedy club. So much food, you guys! These were just some of my favorites. We got to attend Hillsong on Sunday and it was just what we needed. The worship, the message, it was perfect. “We are all qualified for such a time is this!”
We made some wonderful friends, one being the bride that got married on that Friday. She was absolutely the sweetest and her wedding was stunning. We had the best time dancing the night away, and second shooting. Our job is pretty freaking cool! Our last day was spent with another bride to be, who lives in Long Island. Haley is shooting her wedding in October. We had the best time eating bagels on the beach, hanging out at their beautiful home, and ended the night laughing, drinking some wine, and yummy cheeses and hummus. You guys, my heart is full from this trip. People are just beautiful. I have such a great framily. Here are some photos from our trip! Enjoy!
Well hello there strangers!
I’m back from New York and I’m ready to conquer the world. New York is good for the mind, body, & soul. Seriously. I’ll share more from my trip later.
Kim from Oh Sweet Joy sent some fun goodies from her shop before I left and I’m so excited to show them off! You guys may have seen the super cute tote saying, “Eat more Ice Cream!” On my IG! I also received some koozies, fun little headbands that you will see soon, and this tank! It has quickly become one of my favorite tanks I own. There’s something about the material, cut, and color that makes me really happy! I’m a sucker for anything grey and you might be surprised, but I’m totally into Willie Nelson as well. You outdid yourself with this one, Kim. Check out more of her adorable items here and follow her IG cause her feed is nothing but cuteness.

What do you do when your husband leaves all his camera equipment at work, but you’re all ready to take outfit photos!? Use your iPhone! I have to say I’m pretty proud of how these photos turned out! It was a heck of a lot faster & easier. What do you guys think?
I love shorts. I especially love non jean shorts. It’s so fun having a pair in a crazy color, pattern, material, & style to dress up or down. Riffraff always has the best selection of these kind of shorts, and I got my first pair from them. I’ve kinda started a collection. ☺️ This pair is a new favorite I got in the mail last week! I love the teal color & the pretty scallop detailing around the bottom. I decided to make it more causal with my keds, but they would be super cute with a crop top and some wedges!
Hope you’re having a great week!

As I write this I am currently laying in bed with a bag of frozen peas on my face, deciding if I want mashed potatoes or mashed potatoes. Getting your wisdom teeth out is no joke, y’all. All I want is a blueberry donut from Dunkin, nachos & cheese dip, all of my favorite candies, & Chick-fil-a. My procedure was on Wednesday, and it went a little something like this… I was a nervous wreck on the ride there, and my heart was about to beat out of my chest. I sign in, and the lady at the counter said my appointment wasn’t until July 23. I could either wait till July, or they could squeeze me in that day. The only problem with squeezing me in was that I would have to get the laughing gas instead of the IV. So I put my big girl panties on and took the gas! I was flying high as a kite! You do hear everything, and it was nice cause he would tell me exactly what was going on, but honesty you are so out of it you couldn’t care less what you hear or what is about to happen. I felt like I was floating on a cloud. Overall it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, I mean don’t get me wrong the aftermath stinks! I just want REAL food…
They are all the rage right now, aren’t they?! Riffraff has a couple pieces with the favorite fruit and I knew I needed at least one for my closet! It’s a fun little crop top, perfect for these hot Georgia days. I paired it with these super comfy, high waisted shorts, & added a fun print with my turban from Monroe & Harlow! Guess what?! M&H turned one last week! How exciting is that?! It has been so fun working with Anikka and seeing her business bloom!
Hope you all have a fun weekend!

You guys, where does the weekend go?! We had a pretty good one. Hanging with friends, eating Popsicles, laying by the pool, eating good food, & napping. I would say we brought in the first weekend of summer pretty well!
So, I’m getting my wisdom teeth out this week! Yikes! I am super nervous/terrified. I hear the best part, though, is that you get to eat ice cream all day. That’s the only thing I’m looking forward to, and I’m kind of hoping I’m totally tripping and Bobby gets an awesome video. I am one those people that never gets embarrassed. I just love to laugh even when it’s at myself. Have seen this one?! This girl got famous by Ellen. Fingers crossed I meet Ellen, guys!
Hope you all have a great week! I’ll be living in these overalls all summer. I promise you these are the most comfortable pair out there. Very light weight, roomy, & worth every penny!
