Valentine's Day Gifts for Her

Now that February is here, I'm ready to celebrate Valentine's Day with everything pink and all the hearts because who doesn't love celebrating love?! 


15: Heart Candle // 16: Breakfast In Bed Tray // 17: Bath Truffles

These Peach Bellini candies are some of my favorites and are the perfect little gift for your bestie!

I love the idea of treating your Valentine to some heart shaped waffles (made with this waffle maker and this waffle mix) and breakfast in bed on this rattan tray. And of course Valentines PJ's would be perfect for pampering her too!

January Wishlist

Hi friends! It's been way too long since I've written an actual post here but I'm always updating my "Wishlist" tab at the top and thought I would share a few of my favorites here today! This January I have been living in cozy cardigans and leggings but I'm looking forward to shedding some layers and adding some color to feel more like spring!



Getting photos printed (especially from our trip to Greece this past summer!) has been on my to-do list for months, and these gorgeous frames would be perfect to create a little gallery wall with some our favorites since they come in 5 different sizes! I also love these gold frames from Target that are a little more affordable.

I have been obsessed with my Fitbit Alta HR since I got it last spring and though I usually love my rose gold leather band, this tortoise shell and gold bracelet just looks so classy and really dresses it up for everyday wear.

These hammered gold fan style earrings are such a fun statement earring, but also neutral enough to wear all the time.

I think I first heard about this liquid eyeshadow from one of Krista of Covering the Bases's Instagram stories and I've been thinking about it ever since. I don't really wear a lot of eyeshadow but the Starlight color looks like such a pretty light champagne color that would be so pretty!

Everyone has raved about this brand of curling irons and curling wands and I want to see what the hype is all about! I never really spend a lot of curling irons because my hair is so fine and straight that it doesn't hold a curl well (I usually can only curl it with my straightener) but I'm wondering if I try a nicer iron like this one if it would really make a difference.

Ashley from Sweet Southern Prep posted these pretty pink loafers on her Instagram the other day and I love the light pink color and style. They're a bit pricey, but I've heard great things about this company and they look like they would be so comfortable and instantly add a little bit sophistication to any jeans and sweater outfit. I also found this pair that are very similar for under $60!

The new Kendra Scott collection was just released this week and I'm loving so many things, including these fun statement earrings. I'm basically loving everything that this Blush Mother of Pearl comes in!

So full disclaimer, I actually own this sweater in two other colors already (light pink and tan) but I just love this light blue color so much. It's also such a nice lightweight sweater that can be worn into the spring here in Savannah (it even is made with COOLMAX!) and tassels are always an added bonus!

I'm ready to add a little color into my wardrobe after wearing lots of gray and black this winter and love this bright pink color of this sweater! But if hot pink isn't your thing, it does come in gray and black, along with 6 other colors.

Another great find from Sweet Southern Prep Ashley! I had my eye on this pretty ruffle back sweatshirt last year but it sold out in my size before I could pull the trigger, so I actually just ordered this the other day after initially adding it to this post and can't wait for it to come in. Bonus- it's currently on sale and also comes in blush color too!

Clearly dreaming of springtime and warmer weather, when I saw this wicker crossbody I immediately added it to my wishlist and think it will be so cute when it warms up!

I am always on the hunt for fun little things to add to the house that are a little different from everything else you see, and this little elephant end table would be a fun addition in either our family room or in our Palm Beach themed guest room.

I think because I've been wearing warm boots almost every day the last weeks, I'm dreaming of open toe shoes and sandals like these peep toe booties.

I've been on the hunt for a good Vitamin C oil or serum for my skin lately and have loved everything I've tried from this Greek skin care line so I want to try this Rose Vitamin C oil. It has some great reviews and it said to make skin softer, smoother, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles (yes please!) I discovered this brand when we were in Greece this summer and have since bought more of my moisturizer, this sculpting and firming sleeping oil, and this Greek Wonders skin care set that includes a sampler of my favorite moisturizer and this Greek yogurt cleanser that is one of my absolute favorites! If you're interested in trying out this brand, it's a great deal for all that it includes.

I can't get enough of these leopard slip on sneakers and think they'd be so cute with everything from leggings or jeans to a black tshirt dress!

It seems like every January I always have the urge to buy new workout clothes (maybe because I wear them so much when it's colder outside?) and love these cute sneakers. It's probably no surprise that I'm always drawn to sneakers with a little bit of pink!

Like I just mentioned, I'm always loving new workout clothes especially during the winter months and these leggings are from one of my favorite workout brands, Athleta! I have loved everything I've ever gotten from them, and their pants are some of my favorites (very comparable to Lululemon!) Plus, these have pockets which is the best for when I'm taking Lucy for a walk and not wearing a jacket or vest with pockets but want to bring my phone.

If you're like me this morning and still waiting in line to shop the LP site, here are a few deals I've found around other retailers! I'll be updating throughout the day when I can get onto the Lilly site so check back later!

I LOVE this print so much and was excited to find it on sale this morning!! I'm wearing a small in the Bohemian Beach pattern but there are a bunch of prints included on sale!

This dress is such an easy throw on dress and can so easily be dressed up with earrings (like my fav Lisi Lerch Ginger earrings) or can be worn as coverup!

I snagged this top on sale a couple weeks ago and love the bright guava color with white denim shorts. I'll be wearing it soon with dark jeans for fall!

Blog Update

Hey friends, long time no post! I've missed this colorful little space the last few months and want to dive back into more consistent blog posts this summer! I wish I had a good reason for why I haven't posted at all lately but honestly, it's just that I've wanted to spend less time in front of the computer screen at night. I do a lot of e-commerce  and social media work during my day job at Emily McCarthy Shoppe, which I love, but when I get home from work I have really enjoyed having some "unplugged" time. I hope some of y'all can relate and understand!

Like I mentioned though, I would really love to start getting blog posts back up here though at least once a week! Is there a specific day you really would love to read them? During the week? On the weekends? I haven't quite decided when my day will be but for now, I'm just excited to get back into the blogosphere!

Cheers! My favorite Emily McCarthy monogram stemless tumbler is perfect for boat margaritas!

If you have followed in the past, you may have seen a trend of my Friday bar cart posts so what better to share today than some of my bar carts from the last few months. If you like these kind of posts, hop over the The Pink Clutch today for an extra special pink & green Savannah meets Palm Beach bar cart post with my sweet friend Paige Minear!


Bar Cart // cocktail napkins from Pink Lion Dog



As you can tell, a good portion of my paycheck at Emily McCarthy has gone right back into the company in the form of cups and cocktail napkins but when you're around so many pretty designs, it's hard not to order a few things for yourself! ;)
