I picked this book up at the local library in the New Books section. Part cook book and part tales of growing up in Nashville, Tennessee. While Reese grew up in a wealthy family, I saw that all Southern Ladies embrace hospitality. Reese shares that at a young age she learned if you had a guest in your home, you offered them a drink, usually Sweet Tea as well as a nibble of a savory or sweet. Yes, I can identify with that...Southerners believe in feeding everyone. My mother always had a sweet of some sort on hand and I rather miss that in my home. If I had a sweet on hand, I would eat it myself. This is just a pretty book and one I think you will enjoy. BTW, instead of describing southern belles as steel magnolias, her grandmother described them as whiskey in a teacup. I would say that is also an apt description of a lot os southern women I know.
2. Getting my Hair Done...
I decided to go back to the long bob after trying layers for a while. Thankfully my hair grows fast! I learned my lesson and will just leave my hair alone even if I am wanting to try a new style. This is one I can handle myself although Kudos to Suzanna, my stylist. If I were a millionaire I would go every week for a blow out.
3. The Endless Adventure
My VLOG friend, Suzanne, recommended this You Tube Channel to those of us who prefer traveling by armchair. Eric and Allison are a young couple who were working their fingers to the bone at start up companies in the San Francisco area when they decided that life was passing them by! While they were young and childless, they decided to hit the road. Eric works at an online job bringing in enough money to cover their monthly expenses while Allison manages their You Tube channel, blog and Instagram. Now that they are becoming well known, many travels are sponsored by travel businesses. My biggest question is how many clothes do they own and how do they do their laundry? Check them out...they just did a trip to New England and now are on a cruise to Puerto Rico.
4. OPI Hand Lotion
I seldom check out the TJ Maxx Beauty/Skin product aisle but when I saw OPI lotion, I had to give it a try as I love OPI nail polish. This is the perfect light weight lotion for these cold winter days. I have my bottle by my cozy chair. I chose the Coconut Melon scent and it is just delightful.
5. Caren Hand Cream
I love the Red Cocoa Hand Cream by Caren Original. It comes in the perfect purse size and the smell is just heavenly. I need to get a new one for this winter.
