Kelly Wearstler Style

Kelly Wearstler recently launched her own clothing line. We all knew it would be great and it really is! She definitely did not disappoint. There's no denying that this girl's got style! I have admired her interiors for years and have all of her coffee table books. Now it's time to drool over her fabulously unique clothing and accessories.

Savannah Soap Co

This one is for my Savannah people :)



Don't you just love when a friend makes a recommendation that is EXACTLY what you've been looking for? A big thank you to my dear friend Courtland for this one!

The Savannah Soap Company is now open on the southside. This upscale laundry service is sure to show up most dry cleaners and self-service laundromats.

I cannot wait to take my sheets, duvets, and table linens there to be washed and pressed. I absolutely hate washing/drying sheets! Wouldn't it be so nice to drop them off one morning and pick them up later that day all pressed and ready to go. I think so!





The lines of laundry soaps and cleaning products they carry is pretty impressive too - Caldrea, Mrs. Meyers, and Charlie's Soap to name a few.

10 gifts under $20!

Since Thanksgiving is behind us, my mind is completely focused on gift giving! I've done some research for you all and come up with ten great gift ideas all under $20!




How cute are these mercury owls? This is the perfect gift for a girlfriend or mom to sit on a stack of books or on a bookshelf, plus 50% of the purchase price go to St. Jude's.






I just love these colorful canvas cases for your e-readers and tablets. Both are under $20, can be monogrammed and have free shipping!




This olive wood paddle board is a great hostess gift- the small one is under $20 and is also eligible for free shipping.






I love these sweater knit slippers socks and wear them a lot in the winter- great gift for any woman in your life.




I got this jewelry roll last year for Christmas and use it all the time- currently it is on sale for $16 and is eligible for free shipping!





I have mentioned these before, but how great would these small Baggu bags be for the teenager or professional that takes their lunch to school/work? They are only $6 each!






This cute catch-all from Furbish is the perfect gift for a neighbor, friend or sister.




Love these chevron note cards! A set of 10 is $13.50 including shipping.




This electric wine opener is great for any man or woman on your list! It really makes opening wine bottles so much easier too.






Give the gift of Netflix- I have been a member of this home-delivery service for a few years now and you just can't beat it- great value and all the popular movies you could ask for! Now, they have streaming only options if you prefer to do that through your Blue Ray player or iPad. Give a two month subscription for only $15.98!

Serenbe

If you are looking for a short getaway and not a very far one, I have a recommendation. With the holidays right around the corner, I can only imagine how beautiful this quaint community will be with Christmas decorations. Welcome to Serenbe! It is tucked south of Atlanta off of interstate 85. What a cozy weekend getaway with wonderful "farm-to-table" food options and lovely shops for the perfect, unique Christmas gift. One of my favorite photographers has a gallery on the grounds too (more to come about him in another post). The pictures are beautiful, but this area is even prettier in person! So when are you planning your trip to Serenbe? And, can I come????






Upholstered Headboards

I have been on the lookout for a pair of headboards for a guest room.  There are so many great options with upholstered headboards.  I love all the different shapes and looks these bring into a room.  I'll let you know which style I go with...

Hungry?

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving yesterday and that your heart (and tummy) is very full. I know mine are. William and I spent Thanksgiving here in Savannah with his family this year. And if I've said it once, I've said it a million times. I love this holiday!

I received a book recommendation from a friend earlier this week, and I'm so glad I listened to her (Thanks, Alix!). If anyone is looking for a good read this weekend, go buy "The Hunger Games," the first book of the best-selling trilogy by Suzanne Collins.



It's addicting in a "Twilight" kind of way. The Katniss/Peeta/Gale love triangle is almost as interesting as the Bella/Edward/Jacob one. I can't wait to read the other two books.



The first movie in the series is due out on March 23rd, so mark your calendar. Here's the official trailer.
