Friday Finds

Happy Friday! This has seemed like “a week.” Lots going on for a very rainy week in February. Despite the dreary weather, I have been dreaming of more fun things for spring! I want to share some more items that have been coveting recently! I hope you all like this Friday Finds series. I think it may be here to stay. You can always go to the main menu and find “Favorite Finds” to easily locate items I have posted in the past.

Also, I want to say a BIG thank you to everyone local and afar who bid on some wonderful art yesterday at Studio 212 benefiting West Dallas Community School! It was a fabulous night full of great music by DJ Lucy Wrubel, yummy bites, and excellent cocktails! Most importantly, all the proceeds of the art went straight to student scholarships.

Enjoy these finds and have a great weekend! XO- Christina

Friday Finds

Happy Weekend! I totally took a “treat yourself” approach to Valentine’s Day and now I am heading out of town for the weekend! Here are a few of my favorite things that I recently purchased and several things I am about to bite the bullet on. As always, lots of pretty blue and white sprinkled in (it is ON SALE). Also, I am totally having a moment with blush. I keep gravitating towards the pretty, soft color. There is something in the air that is just hinting that spring will be here soon, and that makes me want a total refresh when it comes to every aspect of style.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Also, let me know if you have any Nashville recs? I have a packed weekend, but would love to hear any must-see streets/shops/restaurants!

Love Yourself

You may have someone to gift you a fun Valentine’s Day gift, or you can spoil yourself. Etiher way, everyone deserves love on Valentine’s Day. Recently, I have been hearing people talk a lot about “self-care.” They mention it as if it is a new phenomena, yet I have been an expert for years. While you can wait for that someone to give you a gesture of love, you can also bestow some upon yourself. Feel like you need a massage? You probably deserve one. Have you been thinking about a pretty piece of jewelry you’ve seen? What is stopping you from buying it? Do you want a fancy sushi dinner? Well, takeout exists for a reason.

If you want to treat yourself or you have someone who is ready to show you affection on Valentine’s Day, I have some great ideas below!

All my love! XO- Christina

MEMO Jewelry

MEMO is the latest in chic high-end jewelry. They offer 3-day complimentary loan in which you can see, feel and try on jewelry before making a purchase.  It makes the whole buying process much more approachable.  Also, if your loved one buys it for you and you don’t like it, it is easy to return. That said, 80% of the purchaser base is a female self purchaser. Another reason to treat yourself!

Goop Bath

Have you heard GOOP has new bath formulas? What a better way to unwind than with a detoxifying martini bath.

Luggage Tags

A great gift that can create lasting memories would be travel. While it is not normally tangible to see an airline ticket, you can give a chic luggage tag as a lasting placeholder.
