Yup….it’s official…I literally ran out of time yesterday, and here I am at the butt crack of dawn writing this…why? Because I promised y’all I would do this weekly and I have to keep my promise!
I’ve got some great gift ideas on this weeks post, and a little birdie told me that one of them will be 50% off on Black Friday!
- So a little back story on these stemless wine glasses…Beth (owner of The Registry Less Traveled on Etsy) is a good friend of ours and I truly have NO idea where her creativity came from because 6 years ago there was NADA…..and now….all I can say is WOW! We have given her glasses as gifts so many times and they are always a favorite. These dog ones are customizable, as is everything in her shop. The quality and craftsmanship of her products is phenomenal, especially for her price! And the best part, she does all of it…so you’re supporting a true artist! Check out her Etsy Shop to see everything she has available…but fair warning, you might want to get your order in STAT because she will close her shop down soon to be able to finish all her holiday orders! If you live locally in Charleston, you can pick up her stuff at Simply J Boutique on King Street!
- Truth be told I LOVE to read and since the birth of both of the girls I haven’t had time (yes I realize we’re talking 3.5 years). I used to read at least 2 books a month and now, I can say that I think I might have finished 3 books in 3 years…so sad! When SPJ and I went out to San Diego for Johnston Girls Weekend, Lu was reading this book and I picked it up and read the back cover, I knew then and there that this was the next book I was going to read….let’s just say I have not been disappointed! I’ve actually gone home for lunch a couple times over the past week just so I can sit and read for 20 mins…ha ha! If you like a book with twists and turns that keeps you thinking and wondering how everything is going to be tied together, then DEFINITELY get this one! The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty
- I’m addicted to planners, notebooks and pens…there, I said it!!!! I have to see things written down and crossed off, I can’t do the smartphone thing….sorry. I guess that’s one part of me that will always be old school, and the fact that I still write Thank You notes. I have struggled over the years trying to find a planner that works for me, and this beautiful pink one from Emily Ley is awesome! It fits in my purse, great paper quality and has a week on two pages. She has daily and weekly versions available, I happen to prefer the weekly at this point in my life, but I have used the daily previously. And word on the street is that they will be 50% off beginning on Friday on her website BUT if you’re local to Charleston, Simply J Boutique has them marked 50% beginning today!!
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving, and if you’re traveling…travel safe!
