Weekend + Links

The first work week of 2017 is down and I’m excited for the weekend ahead! Atlanta is supposed to get snow tonight into tomorrow and just the thought makes me so happy. Although if you remember our snowstorm debacle a few years ago, you know our city didn’t handle it well. I want to use the cold weekend ahead to finish getting our house organized for the new year. There are closets and cabinets that I could definitely go through and get rid of anything that’s not serving a purpose. Decluttering is the mindset.

favorite links:
+ secrets from 100 year old southerners (I love this!)
+  the food trends you’ll see everywhere in 2017
+ Ashley’s updated home tour is beautiful, as expected (want that lucite lamp!)
+ the best bang for your buck healthy buys to get at Trader Joe’s

sales & deals:
+ I have this basic tee in a few colors and at $11 it’s a steal!
+ A big YES to this fit and flare dress
+ The cutest red loafers to spice up an outfit
+ Into the muted colors of this jacket
+ this bootie in any color

    Has it started snowing there yet?! In Eastern NC we already have a good amount of ice/snow mix. The perfect excuse to stay inside and be LAZY! and clean/organize!
