THE GIRLFRIEND’S GUIDE TO LUSH COSMETICS

I am so excited for this collaboration with The Summit to introduce you to Lush Cosmetics! I have to be honest, when they reached out to me, I had never heard of this HUGE beauty company.

For those of you that have been living under a rock like me, consider this your official guide to Lush Cosmetics!

DINNER LAB Birmingham

So, if you HAD to pick one thing BIRMINGHAM is known for, what would you say?  Anyone?  Bueller?  Maybe it’s being a pregnant foodie, but I would have to say FOOD!  Having traveled all over the country, I have to say that BIRMINGHAM has a pretty legit food scene.  It can compete with most big cities and truly boasts a uniqueness that nowhere else can emulate.  From Frank Stitt to Chris Hastings, Birmingham is fortunate to be the home of so many legendary chefs.  SO, what is the latest FOODIE trend to hit Birmingham?  DINNER LAB. What exactly is DINNER LAB?  Their tagline is EXPLORE…

“Procrastinator?  No, of course not.  I just wait until the last second, because I will be older and therefore wiser.” So, you’re welcome.  This Father’s Day GIFT GUIDE will be oh so much better, since I waited until the last minute!  But because of my procrastinator status, this gift guide is for all the BIRMINGHAM folks!  Or for the people that have dads that live in the ‘Ham OR for those people that are willing to shop online!  But lemme tell ya, it’s pretty good if I say so myself.  By the time you read this, you will have 4 and…

CHAMPAGNE TASTE + BEER BUDGET?

Well, isn’t THAT the truth!  I think this is something we can ALL relate to!  It seems I am always looking for something CHAMPAGNE but on a BEER BUDGET.  Well, I have some awesome news!  Think back to around Christmas time.  Remember the shopping/foodie trip to ATL that the hubs and I took?   If you recall, I was actually pregnant and did not know it, as we ate and shopped our way through Atlanta.  I featured some amazing over-the-knee boots and a TO-DIE for Rebecca Minkoff FRINGE Cross-Body bag.  One of the posts from this trip was titled OVER IT…
