CYBER MONDAY

Hi guys! I am still not sure how I feel about Black Friday, so I did not promote any of the sales.  Yes, there are some AMAZING sales that allow people to save a lot of money around Christmas-time.  But on the flip-side, I feel like Black Friday keeps getting moved up each year.  For example, many stores were opening (and promoting Black Friday) at 6pm on Thursday.  On THANKSGIVING.  So, we spend all day giving thanks, then spend the entire next day fighting over stuff we want.  And to think of all people in retail that ave to leave…

bumpdate: A S H E R | H A Y E …

Photo by Rachel and Noah Ray So sorry I have been absent for the past couple of weeks…BUT we have been super busy with our precious little prince.  On August 14th, our lives changed forever!  Ryan and I welcomed our SON (yes, it’s a BOY) Asher into the world.  Never in a million years could I have imagined that I would be capable of loving 2 people SO much.  So, why 2 weeks early?  And did I have c-section or deliver naturally?  SO many questions, I know.  Asher’s original due date was YESTERDAY (August 26th), and his 2 week birthday is tomorrow,…

Can you say 20% off? BLING BLING!

IMAGES BY: Jennifer Hagler Photography Yesterday I had an absolutely BLAST learning all about that BLING BLING at the Diamonds Direct Summer Designer Showcase.  As soon as I walked in, the place was ROCKIN.  I am talking strobe lights, a DJ, and mimosas…at 9:45 am on a Friday.  Now THAT sounds like a Friday to me!  So, what is the Summer Designer Showcase?  You will have access to some of the TOP DESIGNERS in the industry, such as Henri Daussi, Verragio, and A. Jaffe, to help answer any questions you may have.  Both the staff and the designers were AWESOME!  While…

HALLER.

How amazing does that dish look?  Those are Buckwheat Blinis with Gravlax, Creme Fraiche, Caviar and Dill.  Are you hungry yet?   Several weeks ago, the hubs and I hosted a vertical wine dinner at our house that focused on Chateau Beaucastel wines from the Southern Rhone region.  We were so happy to host this wonderful event that supported local Alabama charities and The Tum Tum Tree Foundation.  The food+the company+the wine…the event was spectacular! However, the food stole the show.  Chef Haller Magee truly brought down the house with his seemingly effortless, yet eclectic dishes.  He literally took over our kitchen creating a pop…

OH BABY.

SURPRISE!!!!  A new contributor will be joining Life Lutzurious this August…Ryan and I are EXPECTING a BABY!!  I am BEYOND thrilled to finally share this news with all of you.  I am literally in tears as I write this post. I hope you enjoy our fun, hip pregnancy announcement! So, how did this happen (well, we know how it happened), but was it expected, how am I feeling, are we having a boy or girl?  Well, to sum it up, no it wasn’t completely expected.  It was the perfect late Christmas surprise!  Remember the foodie/shopping extravaganza we took to Atlanta on…

chocolate.

Oh hi!  I thought the word chocolate would get your attention!  This recipe was not originally on the schedule to post today…until I bit into these delicious bites of goodness.  I have no doubt these will be served in Heaven!  My word they are AMAZING.  Anyways, I highly recommend you go straight to Whole Foods or your pantry, gather the ingredients, and get to baking.  These cookies are not only scrumptious, but they are also super easy.  And by easy, I mean less than 15 minutes total time.  I found this recipe on Pinterest (shocker).  The original recipe is posted here.…

gray.

Hello dolls!  I hope everyone had a GREAT weekend!!  Looks like the cold [and maybe some snow] is headed back this way.  Bring. on. spring!  But in the meantime, I have THE PERFECT winter outfit to show y’all.  Everytime I wear this sweater, I get so many compliments.  Not only is it super cute, but it is extremely comfy and very versatile.  It can be dressed down or dressed UP, and it’s perfect this time of year.  Of course, in these pictures I paired it with my favorite leather leggings [that I now own in 3 colors.  OOPS.], my go-to Janessa…
