friday five.

Happy Friday! It was a long rainy week in Charleston. I'm hoping the sun comes out soon! Here are five other things on my mind:
ONE: Earlier this week I went to a blogger event at Moon & Lola downtown. It was fun to get together with Caitlyn, Ally, and Shelby and meet other Charleston bloggers. The space was beautiful and it was get an up close look at all the jewelry on display.
TWO: When do you start shopping for the holidays? Christmas will be here in three months (crazy right?!). In anticipation of the holiday shopping season, I'm working on updating my gift picks - $50 and under board on pinterest with budget gift ideas. I'll continue to add budget friendly picks over the next few weeks -- so be sure to check it out. Happy shopping!


THREE: Gone Girl opens in a few days. I loved this book and I can't wait to see the movie -- it'll be really interesting to see the characters brought to life.
FOUR: I made grilled cheese with apples + tomato soup the other night for dinner and I am SOOO happy apples are back in season! I can't wait to make more dishes that incorporate my favorite fall fruit.FIVE: There's a few days left to enter the Graphic Image datebook + pen giveaway. I'll announce a winner on Tuesday, September 30, along with another giveaway. 

Have a great weekend!

  11. That apple cheddar soup sounds delicious!

    I have most of my shopping done already, don't hate me. I was lucky to find a kate spade sale for the ladies in my life and then we went to Alaska and I bought family and friends gifts from there.

  20. I'm so excited for Gone Girl but I heard there might be an alternate ending for the movie..which I'm not sure I love. I need to start my Christmas shopping early this year but I'm usually a last minute type of shopper.
