Each month, I plan on sharing a few of my favorite things with you all here on the blog. I have the classic song from The Sound of Music stuck in my head as I type. I know monthly favorites videos are popular on Youtube, but I think I want to make this a little series here on the blog. So, here it goes!
So aside from brown paper packages tied up with string, here are a few of my favorite things for the month of March: (Sorry, I know....super cheesy.)
1. DRAPER JAMES
Okay, so I have a problem. I think if I had an unlimited budget I could survive by only shopping at Draper James for the rest of my life. If you haven't heard of Draper James, it's Reese Witherspoon's Southern inspired clothing line. Perfection. I took my first visit to the flagship store here in Nashville back in November with my Aunt, and it was love at first sight. Back in February, my friend Emma from thehippiememoirs and I got to attend their Spring preview event for My Elegant Life. Here are a few images from the event:
As a "Yay, you got a big girl job" gift, my grandparents were kind enough to let me pick something out from the store on their visit to Nashville. I am IN. LOVE. with my new bag, the printed vanderbilt tote. I also got some adorable polka dot pants that were on super clearance. I could go on and on about how much I love this brand. But, alas, I'll move on to my next favorite.
2. Fuller House
I've always been a huge Full House fan, and they really hit the nail on the head when creating Fuller House. I may or may not have binge watched the entire season over the course of a few days. I could write an essay on how much I love Fuller House, but I'll just end it here. If you haven't seen it yet, GO NOW!
3. Pacifica's Hawaiian Ruby Guava Body Lotion
Holy Chalupa! This stuff's amazing!! If you didn't get that reference, see favorite #2. Seriously though, this may be the best scent I have ever smelled. Pacifica is a brand that I love for many reasons, especially that they use natural ingredients and are cruelty free. I love their products, but this lotion in particular is my absolute fav.
4. Joey + Rory
As a Southern girl with East Tennessee roots, it's only natural that I like country/bluegrass/gospel music. Hearing bluegrass always reminds me of family, the mountains, and our annual trips to Dollywood. If you are familiar with the Country/Gospel duo Joey + Rory, you probably would know about Joey's recent battle with cancer. Sadly, Joey passed on a few week ago , but was able to spend Easter with her Lord and Savior. I have been touched by their story, and their brand new album, Joey + Rory Hymns that are important to us, has been on repeat on my itunes. My two favorites from the album are "It is Well with My Soul," and "I'll Fly Away."
5. Blogger: Simplicity Relished
A new blogger I stumbled upon this month is Daisy from Simplicity Relished. She blogs about simple living, fashion, travel, and incorporates her faith into her writing as well. I have loved reading her articles and keeping up with her latest posts! She has some great articles about customizing your capsule wardrobe, and her travel photos are giving me a serious case of wanderlust.
