Good Monday morning. Just a few scenes from my life lately.


First things first I’m a realist I cut a bob. Short and blunt, on a whim, and I’m happy with the change.




On Saturday the kids got to go to their Grandma’s house so Josh and I grabbed breakfast at Hot Little Biscuit before a morning at the Charleston Place Spa. It was heavenly and was one of my Christmas gifts from him.





Afterwards I spent some time on King Street. Things are looking really pretty at Hampden right now. I love this stripe bag with the chain.




I’ve been cooking a lot of winter soups and sauces with my new Staub cookware. Have any of you tried this line? It’s really pretty and I love cooking with cast iron.




Some pretty things… This Kate Spade walletthese earrings, and this water.




Over Christmas break I (finally) read Gone With The Wind. Ah-mazing. I don’t think the movie even compares to the book. If you haven’t read it I highly recommend it. Also, thanks to recommendations on instagram I’m currently reading Scarlett and really like it a lot as well!




Charleston got a new (and gorgeous) coffee/wine bar. Stoked! Welcome St Alban.




My new favorite hair tool… I can’t say enough. I’ve been wanting this Drybar blow dryer for a long time but I waited to buy it until I felt like my old hair dryer was about finito. I shouldn’t have waited. It’s amazing and I can’t recommend it enough.




I knew I had to have these Aquazzura pumps (also available here) the moment I laid my eyes on them. You’ll find a pineapple at the bottom of every pair of Aquazzura shoes, it represents good fortune and the designer’s golden touch.




Lastly, if you have kids in your lives then you need to know about these personalized books. There are a ton of different stories to choose from and you can build the story around your child and even throw in the names of friends. My kids are OBSESSED with these. Fletcher thinks it’s hilarious that his cousin Gavin is his parrot in his pirate adventure book. Check out all of the personalized book options here.

    Hey Chass! I love this post! I’m trying to order one of those books but I’m confused on how to fully personalize it. When I try to order it only asks for the child’s first and last name and city they live in… Is there a way to totally personalize it by adding names from the family like Fletcher has his cousin’s name? Thanks!!

    I read Scarlett back in high school. That’s been many year ago, but I remember it being so good! Love the bob!
