I got a new beautiful rose gold watch from Welly Merck, a Switzerland based watch company. Welly Merck designs Swiss watches for both men and women at an affordable price. The ‘Classic New York R‘ (36MM) watch I got only costs $265, but looks like it could be worth $500 or more. Welly Merck gave me a code to share with my readers. Use code ‘LaurenNicole20‘ to get an additional 20% off your purchase. I know I just missed Mother’s Day, but Father’s Day is coming up. Watches are always a great gift for any occasion.
South Moon Under was one of my favorite places to shop at when I lived in Virginia. So, when I moved to Atlanta, I still purchased items online, but missed being able to shop in an actual store. But now South Moon Under finally just opened two new stores in Atlanta! One is in Ponce City Market and the other is at Avalon in Alpharetta. To celebrate the openings in Atlanta, South Moon Under has given me a promo code to share with you: “PEACH,”valid through May 10th, online only for 15% off full price items and free shipping, no min order amount, exclusions apply.

Happy Friday everyone! Being petite, yet curvy, it’s hard to find jeans that fit me well. I have a small waist, but I have a bit of a bubble butt. 😉 I can thank my Momma for that. My bum is one of my favorite assets, but it’s hard to find jeans that will fit! Jeans will either be too big in the waist, or too small to fit over my bum. Therefore, I have to wear jeans with a bit of stretch in them. My new Lee skinny jeans fit perfectly!
I love feminine, floral prints. Give me a piece of clothing with a floral print, and I’ll love it forever. So, when I saw this black Make Me Chic wrap dress with a yellow floral print, I had to have it. The dress is a pretty option for a girls night out, or for a date night with my husband. The material is a cotton blend, so the fabric is breathable, yet flattering. Plus, the dress is only $25, which is a total steal. Read more
The pajamas trend is really huge right now. Celebrities and other fashion/lifestyle bloggers have been sporting pajamas in public. As much as I think others look chic, I’ll stick to wearing pajamas inside my house. Read more
On Saturday June 18, 2016 I got married at Pippin Hill, a winery in Charlottesville Virginia. My wedding day was the best day of my life. I married the love of my life and we had our fairy tale wedding thanks to our loving friends and family. Read more
I’m headed to a girls weekend to Miami at the end of March! My best girlfriends and I live far apart from one another (from the east coast to the west coast) so we try to plan a girls trip once a year. Last May we celebrated my bachelorette/birthday party in Nashville. Then in June in Virginia, I saw everyone at my wedding. But that was about 8 months ago (time flies) so it’s about time we get together again! I also can’t believe I’ve been married for almost a year! Read more
Spring is in the air! It’s been sunny and in the 70’s in Atlanta. I feel like we live in LA with zero humidity and perfect weather. One of my husband’s best friends and his wife were in town and were extremely lucky they got to experience the nice weather. Friday evening we grabbed dinner at our favorite pizza spot, Ribalta. Ribalta’s pizza is authentic Neapolitan cuisine. The restaurant is also conveniently walking distance from our condo.
As I’ve said before, my weekend basics are comfy jeans, a cotton t-shirt and some kind of jacket depending on the weather. I’m always on the lookout for versatile, comfy, athleisure type clothes that I can wear to workout or that I can wear to brunch with my girlfriends. I recently collaborated with a new athleisure brand, Hottotties.

I ventured to Grant Park and ate at Ria’s Bluebird, one of Atlanta’s staple restaurants. Ria’s Bluebird has been listed on multiple food blogs and publications as a must visit in Atlanta. Ria’s Bluebird has been on my long to-do list of Atlanta restaurants to try. The diner serves big portions of all-day breakfast including biscuits and rum-soaked French toast. However, Ria’s Bluebird is most famous for its pancakes. Read more
