tuesday trinkets.

I mentioned here that I was looking for ways to break up the monotony of my daily blog posts. In addition to featuring yummy recipes on Fridays, I'll fill you in on some of my favorite finds on Tuesdays. My clever title... Tuesday Trinkets. To get the ball rolling...

  • I mentioned here and here that I shopped the Nordstrom pre-sale with my mom and Jenn. These little beauties are one of my favorite purchases. They are by the fabulous Kate Spade so they are comfy, great quality and perfectly lady-like. You can find them here. They arrived yesterday from my UPS pal and I am still just as in love with them as I was in the store. The bow makes them look like little presents, thus the name I have given them is: my present shoe. 

  • When I moved to Atlanta, my mom gave me these three bath salts as a housewarming gift. I love the muscle soak and stress less, but my favorite is the one in the middle-healing waters. The crystals are really fine and make my relaxing evening soak even more delightful. You can find out about the rest of the Aromafloria products on their website. Friends, don’t be surprised if you get one of these fabulous items at the next gift-giving occasion.

  • Two words to describe this next little gem: absolute perfection. Just like most wonderful things in my life, my sister discovered this and passed it along to me. This is one of my all-time favorite beauty products. It is basically an intense conditioner and it smells fantastic. Unfortunately, a bottle of this magic haircare product is not cheap, so I don't use it every day. My creme de coco gets saved for very special times. If you are to purchase this product, ask yourself these questions to determine when is an appropriate time to pull out your Bumble and Bumble: 

1. Did you just return from a vacation where your resort was absolutely perfect, except for the fact that they had no conditioner?
2. Did you just spend a weekend swimming in the pool or out on the lake?
3. Are you going to a friend's wedding or fabulous party this weekend?

Catch my drift? This stuff is fantastic, but it's just too special to be used every day.

  • I stumbled upon a website the other day that is completely new to me. I emailed it to Jenn and she had never heard of it either. So, although I know it isn't a new shop, maybe it is new to all of you as well.If it is, enjoy! The website is bodenusa.com  They have lots of cute dresses for fall. I haven't purchased anything from them, but I am enjoying looking at all of the fall colors and getting pretty excited for this new season that I will be enjoying in my new home (yes, Georgia has seasons... be jealous)

Enjoy your Tuesday everyone! Hope you've enjoyed looking at some of my favorite things... or that you've at least now enjoyed a little just-for-fun online browsing!


  1. Love your Tuesday Trinkets post! I may just have to try an Aromafloria product.

  2. They are great! My mom usually buys them at Ulta... it saves you on having to pay the shipping from the Aromafloria website.

  3. I am so proud of your blogging techniques. Tuesdays trinkets is so helpful since I can't see your new buys on holick anymore. Thanks for keeping me up to date on the newest trends!
