Happy Monday. I’m back in Charleston after a fun weekend in New York.
I was only there for 48 hours. did a lot. A few dinners, cocktails at Bemelman’s… niece time, an engagement party… it was fun! It was weird and a little emotional to be back. That’s probably normal, I feel like the first time back in a city where you lived for so long (15 years!!) and have so many memories is going to be a little hard. I do wish I had stayed for a third night – I have furniture arriving today though. Luckily (and something I remind myself of often), the flight is so easy… I’m planning to try to go back every two months to see friends, take meetings for work, etc!
My dad picked me up from the airport (so nice) and then we had dinner and now I am back home, writing this post and watching 2 Hearts on Netflix (very cute though I feel like it may turn out to be a tearjerker). Also: how pretty are these flowers? They are from my mom’s garden. One very nice perk of living close to my parents is that my mom brings me homegrown flowers on the reg. It’s so special.
A Beachy Brand I Love, Pretty Knives, the new RomComPods and More Good Things
The Coast Brand
I bought a few things from The Coast Brand (a small Charleston biz!) after seeing them on my friend Liz and really like them! Such pretty things and the gauze fabric is so soft and easy and breathable in this heat. My favorite thing that I got was probably this top. It’s really well made and the fit is great.
Cadence Travel Capsules
I was given a few of these capsules in a gift bag and now I am thinking that I may need to buy a full set – they are such a good idea! These magnetic capsules snap together and hold all your travel essentials, be it vitamins or pills, lotions and potions, jewelry, whatever. Perfect for travel, the office or gym, and so on and so forth. They look good, don’t take up a ton of space, and keep you nice and organized (I love that you can have them labeled).
Our Place’s Beautiful Knives and Cutting Board
You know how much I love my Our Place Pan (you can read my initial non-sponsored review of it here, and also this post!). It’s the prettiest pan ever, it’s so easy to clean, it’s just perfect. Well, now Our Place has a big new launch – knives (in colors that match the pan, swoon) and a cutting board.
I already have good knives and a cutting board I love but I am sorely tempted. I have a code with Our Place – THESTRIPE10 will get you 10% off sitewide, including these. Also: they sell a bundle of all three knives (save $30) or a bundle of all the knives and the cutting board (save $35).
If you are looking for a little candy for your ears, today is the day: RomComPods’ just launched their third season… Showmance! I am so thrilled for Becca and Rachael – this season is definitely the best one yet (I got a little sneak peek) and the cast is incredible. I mean… Lance Bass… what!?! Head to Apple Podcasts or wherever you listen to podcasts (Spotify etc!) and download it now!
