Lovely Finds: Travel Essentials with Nourish Snacks

My #1 Rule: Do NOT leave the house without snacks.

Good morning and happy Friday to you!! Last night we packed a weekend bag and caught a flight to Dallas, TX to spend the weekend with my husband’s sweet family! I am so thrilled to be spending a few days hearing old stories, flipping through photo albums, and let’s be honest, eating some good ole’ Texas food! Since travel is on my mind, I thought that I would chat about my carryon bag, because really, that’s the only bag that counts! I know I have mentioned, like, one thousand times that I don’t leave the house without snacks, because I don’t. It’s a rule. I’m pretty sure the word “hangry” was created because of me. I am NOT a nice person when I am hungry, so I try to keep it under control and Nourish Snacks is my go-to. Here’s the deal: when I am hungry, I need real food, not like something from a drive-thru because basically it will make me sick, which is just counterintuitive, and usually when you are traveling, you are MILES away from anything that has an ounce of real nutrition; that’s where Nourish Snacks comes in! Not only are they yummy (OMGTHEYARESOGOOD!) but they are also good for you. Unlike a lot of granola bars that are mostly sugar, these little snack packs are full of protein and fiber, PLUS they have very low sugar and are gluten and dairy free… HELLO HEAVEN!! I seriously have boxes and boxes of these in my pantry, and I grab a water bottle and one or two Nourish Snacks and pop them in my handbag before I run out the door. It’s a great way for me to not ruin lives with my “hangry-ness”, and not make impulsive food decisions because I am starving (and yes I will eat 3 burritos from Taco Bell!). Really, Nourish is solving all of my life’s problems.

P.S. I even packed a box of these in my weekend bag, so while we are out and about this weekend I will have healthy snacks on the go! Seriously, you need Nourish Snacks in your life.

ABD’s Fancy Friends: Erica Weiner

Today’s Fancy Friends post is all about Erica Weiner and her snarky jewelry!!

Every time I look at this necklace, I giggle. I love how dainty and girly it is, and then you get up close and realize it has a line straight from (my favorite song EVER) R. Kelly’s Ignition Remix engraved on it, which makes me laugh. Hands down the funniest piece of jewelry I own, and I love it so stinkin’ much! If this isn’t a the best gift to give to your bestie and partner in crime then I don’t know what is! I feel like Erica and I could be real life friends with our shared love of girly things with rap phrases… hilarious.

P.S. Also, you must hop on over to Erica’s website, she has SO many beautiful things!!

P.P.S. Have you heard Phoebe Ryan’s cover of Ignition?! It’s perfection!

 P.S. If you think we may be besties and we just haven’t met yet…feel free to shoot us an e-mail and fill us in on what we are missing!

ABD Styled: Floral Midi Dress

Ladylike florals

About the Look:

Good morning! Today’s ABD Styled post is all about this beautiful Floral Midi Dress from ASOS. I love a good floral pattern (proof: here, here, & here) and I never shy away from anything that could have possibly been made from my grandma’s curtains! So when I saw this dress I had two thoughts:
1. YES
2. Get in my closet.

I’m so glad I went ahead and ordered this magical twirly goodness! I felt like a princess from the moment I put it on, also, I didn’t hate the crinoline that lined the dress, poofy and florally…. both yeses in my book! This is dress will be perfect to wear to one of the many weddings we have on the books for Spring!

My Weekend Lookbook: March 21-22, 2015

Good Morning and Happy Monday to you!

Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…

Photo 1: Saturday Mornings

Is there anything better than sleeping in on a Saturday morning and waking up to a sun-filled and clean kitchen?! Nope, the correct answer is no, there isn’t!

Photo 2: Rosé Sunsets

On Saturday night, we had some of our best friends over for dinner and a game night, but before started on dessert we took them to our favorite neighborhood spot to watch the sunset. Even though it was a bit cloudy, Florida sunsets never disappoint! Also, Rosé + Sunset = a successful Saturday night.

Photo 3: Floral Wear

Sunday evening, we got all dolled up for a beautiful outdoor wedding, so I pulled out my favorite floral H&M dress (similar) from last season (here + here), my sparkliest pair of Loren Hope earrings (old but LOVE these), and my hot pink Kate Spade clutch (similar). Let’s be real, I was colorful to say the least!

I hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!!
