WHITE JEANS

White jeans are such an essential for a summer wardrobe. I really like these because they are cropped and just a little torn. I have multiple blouses I am ready to wear with these perfect jeans. I love the fit of Loft jeans and they do not stretch out too much as the day goes on. I hate jeans that are falling off after a day long wear.

WHITBY, NORTH YORKSHIRE COAST

I love visiting the UK. I adore reading British Detective novels because of the amazing settings and beautiful details they provide. My husband and I went to London for our honeymoon and we plan to take our kids once they oldest is 12. My son is dying to go see Big Ben because of Peter Pan. I want to explore more small towns outside of London.

GARDEN SPELL

My sister and I really loved this book. We are not really into books about magic but this book has just the right proportion of reality and magic! The characters are developed well and the setting is beautifully described. I would love to spend several hours in their amazing garden. The book is about the Waverley sisters coming to terms with their past and their unique family traits but it also has a sweet love story. We have read all of Sarah Addison Allen’s books and this is my favorite! The Sugar Queen and the Peach Keeper are wonderful as well.

EASY MONGOLIAN BEEF

This is a super easy and delicious weeknight meal. My kids loved it so that is all I had to know to add this recipe to my weeknight rotation. I did find the sauce a little runny so I added in some arrowroot (cornstarch) to help thicken things up. We have it over brown rice with chicken spring rolls.

LEOPARD PRINT THROW BLANKET

I am always on the hunt for blue throw blankets that are unique. I really like this one and put it on my Mother’s Day gift list for my husband. I love animal print and this blanket will work perfect on my couch. Now I just have to keep my son from stealing it.

I hope you enjoyed my weekly picks! Have a great weekend!

BILTMORE ESTATE

My husband and I love visiting the Biltmore Estate and we always enjoy staying at their Inn. We have been several times and always find something new to entertain us. I adore it so much that I brought my mom here as well. The Dining Room at the Inn is one of my favorite restaurants. It has a great atmosphere, service and amazing food. There is a large fireplace that is always lit in the colder months so I usually request a table in front of or near it. The first time we went for a visit we just did the self guided tour but our next visit we tried out some of the behind the scenes tours. I would recommend both the Rooftop tour and the Backstairs Tour because you get to see a lot of the house that is not open to you with regular admission. If I could recommend a specific time of year I would say Christmas for the candlelight tour. However Spring is gorgeous too with all the beautiful flowers and the grounds.

MATCHES

I love candles! I always have one lit in my home. I not only enjoy the smell but also the cozy glow they put off. I love the idea of this cute little match set so that you can use it as part of your décor but it still serves a useful purpose. I have seen other cute match sets but none of them can match this price. I will say to look at the measurements because it is small.

HAND TOWELS

I adore Turkish towels and already have quit a few! I need to replace the hand towels in my master bathroom so when I found these cute options I put them in my cart immediately. Of course I was sold on these once I saw them in blue which may happen to be my favorite color! It is just so peaceful and relaxing to me.

NECKLACE

I am obsessed with layered necklaces! I often shop at Loft for work clothes so I was excited to find this elegant little piece. I pair it with my button up shirts and V neck shirts. It gives me a very polished look and adds a little extra fun to my work wear!

BASKET

I love this basket. I wanted a basket to go next to my entryway table. I plan to pile a ton of my coffee table books inside and on top for a layered look. I was so drawn to this basket because of the l clean lines and the beautiful leather accents. I have so many baskets but could always use one more! I get this addiction from my mom.

I hope you enjoyed my weekly picks! Have a great weekend!
