I’m mildly obsessed with these silk tees by Rachel Rose.  Light, airy, gorgeous.  Each tee is hand painted and one of a kind.

And a big thanks to Ali at WITH AN i.e. for tipping me off to these.  I just started reading her blog and it’s all sorts of fabulous.

I’m THRILLED today.  You know why?  Because I finally get to share my friend Alesya Opelt’s new laptop bag line.  Alesya’s Bags has been a long time coming.  What started as disappointment at seeing women’s outfits repeatedly ruined by bulky and boring laptop bags has turned Alesya into the fashionable designer of these gorgeous laptop bags you get to see here today.
Currently there are three colors available:  Eggplant, Equestrian Tan, and Kelly Girl Green.  These bags fit up to a 15″ laptop, any tablet or e-reader.  The best part?  They look like a handbag, but function like a laptop bag.  Hallelujah.

With Alesya’s bag launch she’s hoping to inspire other female entrepreneurs to start great businesses.  That’s why she reveals everything she can on her blog, to show other women how she does it so they can do it too.  I’m so proud of her!  Women helping women. That’s what it’s all about, right?!

The Alesya Bags shopping site just went live at midnight, so GO GO GO.  These babies are about to blow up big time, but you know you heard it here first. :)

A couple of months ago I was contacted by the Glitter Guide team for a feature on their new site.  Um, absolutely.  We threw a few different ideas around for what the feature should be, and in the end I decided I should do what I do best… SHOP.  We had a blast during the photoshoot!  It should go live in the next few weeks.  In the meantime, we can all get our sparkle on with all of their glitzy stories.

A few highlights from the site…

Happy Monday, Everyone.  Did you all have a great weekend?  Mine was wonderful. Went to a Riverdogs (our local minor league) baseball game Friday night.  Got to see a lot of friends at a wedding shower on Saturday, and hung out in the pool on Sunday.  Sadly, no beach this weekend.  I win “Mom of the Year” because on Thursday night I gave Lilly a bubble bath that gave her a rash, so we didn’t want to push it by going in the ocean.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Anyway, the point of this post is to gather some information.  We’re heading to San Diego this summer with my side of the family.  I’ve been once, but it was years ago and really was just to see Lilith Fair (Do you all remember that concert series? Was so fun!).  So this time it’ll be much different.  There’s about 30 of us in all going.  Thanks to my grandparents we go somewhere every year.  We’ve done Hawaii 4 times (Maui & Kauai = bliss), a Mediterranean cruise (major dreamy), an Alaskan cruise (beautiful, but don’t need to go again til I’m 50+), and Grand Cayman (Great time but don’t need to go back).  We all decided we didn’t want to travel as far this time, and San Diego won out.

So tell me, what are the must do’s in San Diego?  We plan to take Lilly to the zoo and to Sea World, but think we’ll skip Lego Land since she’s so young.  Any great restaurant suggestions?  Where do I need to go to shop?  And fyi, these places don’t need to be for 30 people, everyone is free to do their own thing on these vacays.  We’ll also be getting a babysitter some of the time too.  We have a few restaurants in mind, but I’d love to hear what you all have to say.  Oh, we’re also going to see a Padres game while we’re there.

We’re staying at the Grand Del Mar.  Looks dreamy.


And any tips for traveling with a toddler would be much appreciated.  We’ve traveled with Lilly a lot, but not cross country.
I’m super pumped to see my family.  Living in Charleston I’m the furthest from everyone (they’re all in Kentucky, Indiana, and Nashville).  One of my favorite things is when all of my cousins get together.
{Last year in Hawaii.  We may have ended up singing Karaoke later that night!}
And seeing new sights.  I’m 5 months pregnant here, Lilly’s holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa.  We also went to the beach right after this, hence the outfit…

And of course getting a whole week with Josh.
{In Maui}
Yep, I start looking forward to these trips the day we get back from the last one.  I feel so incredibly fortunate to get to spend a week with my whole family like this.  And while San Diego may not seem as “glamorous” as some of our other destinations, I know it’ll be great.  So help me out, where should we go??
