1. Happy Friday Y’all! We are currently crushing on this Hamptons Home designed by Kate Ridder (as seen above in Veranda Magazine)! We’re swooning over the jaunty colors, richly layered patterns, and indelible charm in this darling home!…Inspired by the beautiful colors and pattern of this house, we’ve rounded up everything that we’re currently crushing on! Happy shopping!

2. The 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary sale has officially kicked off to the public and we couldn’t be more excited about all of the deals! We can’t wait to show you what we’re adding to our cart like these leopard print ballet flats, denim kick crops, these cat eyed sunglasses, and this cheeky bath mat! Looking to stock up on beauty products? Some of our very favorites like this face palette, this hydrate and glow creme, our go-to jade roller, and this Kate Somerville exfoliating treatment are all part of the sale!

3. Speaking of beauty favorites… with our summer filled with traveling, we had to share what we’re packing in our cosmetic bag! During our travels, there is nothing we love more than a sun kissed glow… this lotion gives off the perfect shimmer and we love using this overnight bronze mask on our face! This tinted moisturizer is great for lightweight coverage with added SPF! And of course, we can’t go anywhere without our signature orangey-red nail polish in case we need a quick touch up! We keep all of our beauty essentials in this darling cosmetic case that easily fits in our carry-on!

4. If you’ve been following along, you may have seen that we’re in our very favorite place - Italy! Say “CIAO” to your new favorite getaway tote! We’re so excited to introduce our “CIAO BELLA” tote - because you asked for more totes and let’s be honest, we really, really love y’all! Made of 100% natural canvas and hand screened right here in Nashville, TN. The “CIAO BELLA” tote has plenty of space for your laptop, handbag, and any other essentials - plus 2 side pockets to keep you organized and a structured bottom!

8. Our favorite way to spruce up our home is with fun, patterned pillows! Serena & Lily is currently offering 20% off all throw and decorative pillows! Geometric patterns bring a room to life like this embroidered pillow. Looking for something with texture? We love this striped beachy pillow, this wool, fringe beauty, and how sweet is this intricate floral design?!?! And don’t forget… pillows aren’t just for indoors! Spruce up your patio with this two-toned beauty or this navy, fringe cover that pairs perfectly with this vintage-inspired daybed.
