five things.

Cheers to the weekend!! It's heating up in Charleston with temps reaching into the mid-90's (sounds like the perfect excuse for more ice cream!) Here are five other things on my mind:

ONE: I attended a blogger meet-up earlier this week at Eclectic Charleston. The interior design studio and shop specializing in vintage, costal, and modern pieces -- I was in love with all the colors and patterns! I was also thrilled to meet some of my favorite Charleston bloggers (Shelby of Recent Somethings, Chassity of Look Linger Love, and Megan of Fried Green Pickles). I wore my new LOFT dress (it's still on sale!)

TWO: My best friend introduced me to TheSkimm -- do you subscribe to this? It's a daily e-mail newsletter with a quick and entertaining rundown of the top news stories. Never be out of the loop on major news events again. I love it.

THREE: I am working on getting back into a workout routine but it's been a little difficult. I miss having a gym in my office building and a set of classes that I love. However, I have attended a few yoga classes at a nearby gym and for the most part they have been great. I also finally purchased a lighter Manduka (my favorite brand) yoga mat + sling, which will make trips to the gym easier. 


FOUR: H recorded the documentary 112 Weddings a few weeks ago and after I read more about it on A Cup of Jo I really want to watch it this weekend. The filmmaker is a wedding videographer and he revisits 9 of his favorite couples to see how their relationship has changed over time. Has anyone else seen it?


FIVE: My giveaway with Candy Shop Vintage is ending soon, don't miss your chance to win rose gold Charleston Rice Beads - I'll be totally jealous of whoever wins this one ;) 

Have a great weekend!

  1. Blog meet ups are so much fun :)!

    I need to get back into yoga, as well. Check out yogadownload.com for free 20 minute workouts you can do at home. It's my saving grace when I need some namaste in my life!

  3. I must check out the Skimm! Sad I missed the event on Wednesday but looking forward to Thursday! What gym are you going to? I've always wanted to try yoga classes but I'm too scared to go alone! Have a great weekend! Life as I know it

  5. The Skimm is my jam! It really makes understanding the news easier. You should try Pure Barre! They have a downtown location by Leaf and it’s such a great workout! If you like hot yoga try Bikram Charleston -- I think they have a groupon/living social deal now too!

  7. Casey and I tried watching that documentary last night...it was kinda sad and depressing, but maybe I wasn't in the right mood. Brace yourself and let me know what you think!

  11. Finding the right yoga studio and instructor can be tough! We moved about six months ago and I just found a great instructor last month. I have a Manduka Eco Light and it feels so good to use it someplace other than my living room. Have a great weekend!
