Inside My Makeup Bag

Is there anything better than a new batch of beauty products to start of the year? Although Fresh’s Soy Face Cleaner is a staple in my bathroom, I just bought a brand new one but all the other products/shades are new for me. Check out all of my current favorite beauty products right now. And if you only buy one new item this season, please let it be Urban Decay’s Naked on The Run limited-edition, all-in-one travel palette. This palette is loaded with exclusive eye shadows, blush, bronzer, lip gloss, eye pencil, and mascara. It is seriously one of my favorite beauty purchases in a long time

Quick Getaway – Savannah, GA

A few weekends ago, Brad and I had the chance to go on a quick trip to Savannah. Our babies stayed with our moms and we drove there for some much needed time to ourselves.

We stayed at the Mansion at Forsyth Park, a beautiful 125-room Victorian Romanesque mansion located in the heart of historic downtown Savannah.

We had a quick bite to eat and drinks at The Public. I highly recommend their Cuban sandwich, it’s to die for.


The weather was amazing – 70 degrees in January – so we walked and walked all day.  We stopped at two of my favorite stores, Marc Jacobs and The Paris Market.


The Paris Market is hands down my favorite store. I could live in there!s2 s3 s4

We took an afternoon break and had salted caramel macarons and iced coffee before heading back to the hotel, and getting ready for dinner.

The next morning we had brunch at Soho South Cafe – it was delicious – before driving down to River Street to bring back home some home made pralines and chocolate turtles.

Looking Ahead: Spring Home Accessories

The new Nate Berkus Spring collection has hit Target stores and not surprisingly, I’m loving it all! Featuring vintage inspired pieces with a relaxed Southwestern vibe, the collection includes items with natural colors, soft textures and  graphic patterns. In my eyes, Mr. Berkus can do no wrong. Well done sir, well done.
