Fall TV Watch List

Sunday, September 27, 2015

Fall TV is finally back! I've waited all summer to get into some new shows and to get back to some of my favorite shows over the last few years. Here's what I'll be watching:

New shows: 

Quantico: This is about the FBI training center called Quantico. The premise seems to be about how one of the recruits is actually a terrorist but nobody knows who it is. Looks really intriguing. 

Blood & Oil: This show is about two young people who move up north to work in the oil business and all of the business issues and politics that come up. I'm excited to see Chace Crawford back on TV! 

Scream Queens: I made it through the 2-hour premiere last week and I have to say I will probably be watching again. The show is similar to PLL but a bit more satirical and kooky. Great cast, wardrobe and one-liners. 

Returning shows: 

Homeland: Homeland is finally back! The hiatus between season is so long that I've forgotten what's supposed to happen this season, but I still can't wait!

How to Get Away With Murder: The season premiere did not disappoint. We already found out who Rebecca's killer was and new plot lines have been set in motion. 

Scandal: I'm really hoping this season is good and so far I'm into it. Olivia and Fitz are together, Cyrus is out of the White House, Huck is still in a really bad place and the gladiators are back to solving cases.

Happy Monday! (Is it ever though?)

(similar to the multicolored pictured above)

Here are a few recent favorites from the last few weeks. I did some shopping down in Kiawah and got these awesome Lilly leggings that look like black work pants but are so comfortable. I also picked up a multicolored oxford popover at Vineyard Vines which is also a great item for work. My sister got me the Lilly koozie which I used almost all of vacation. When I got back I got the cult classic Nars Chelsea Girls lip gloss and a sample of the Hourglass primer at Sephora, which I am excited to try.


Kiawah Island & Charleston Vacation Recap

Monday, September 14, 2015

Just got back from an awesome vacation in Kiawah Island and Charleston, South Carolina! Thank you everyone for the suggestions on things to do and places to go! Here is a quick recap of everything we did last week:

-Walks on the beach in Kiawah every morning
-Swimming and lounging at Night Heron pool at Kiawah
-Cooking meals and hanging out at our house on Turtle Point
-Bike riding around the island
-Dinner at High Cotton, Fish and Magnolia's in Charleston (plus ice cream at Jeni's!)
-Shopping at Freshfields Market 
-Walking around King Street
-Checking out Rainbow Row

Now that we've been back to Kiawah after so many years, I don't think it'll be that long before we go again! It's the perfect beach vacation, with plenty of activities to do and lots of cool things to see in the city. The week flew by too fast!


Charleston & Kiawah Island Recommendations?

Monday, August 31, 2015

My family, along with all of our significant others, is going to Charleston, South Carolina this weekend for vacation and I can't wait! We are actually going to be in Kiawah Island, which is about half an hour from the city of Charleston. We used to vacation there every summer when I was younger and we are going back for the first time in a long time. 

We rented a house on the island which is part of the resort so we'll have access to the pool, beach, spa, gym and tennis courts. We're also planning to go into Charleston to shop, have dinner and take a few tours. 

Does anyone have any recommendations of places to eat, visit, shop or experience in Charleston or Kiawah Island? Like I said, we've been many times but it's been years since we've been back so we don't really know the popular areas or new places. 



Early Fall Wish List & Recent Favorites

Monday, August 24, 2015

At this point in the summer, I'm definitely over the heat and humidity and ready to start scouting out fall clothes. I already know I need a new pair of ankle boots but I'd love to find a cheaper alternative to these Tory Burch ones. As for tops, I'm a big fan of plaid button-ups and Target has some great ones as well as Madewell. And for another season this year, I love the layered sweaters, like this one from Ann Taylor.

 Also sharing some other random favorites: I've finally started a few new shows including The Following, a suspense thriller-type show with Kevin Bacon, who plays a former FBI agent that's chasing a serial killer and his "followers," and the Wet Hot American Summer TV show on Netflix, a hilarious, kooky show about a summer camp, based on the movie. I also cannot stop drinking La Croix seltzers! I'm pretty much obsessed with all the flavors. How can these be so good but have no sugar or calories?!
