Garden and Gun Jubilee


My Dress, my vest (size petite xs), my boots // Chapel’s vest and bow

I had my sights set on attending this year’s Garden and Gun Jubilee after seeing posts of the event on social media last year.  We bought our tickets as soon as they went on sale this summer, thinking that it would be our first trip with baby girl.  (Little did we know, that she would have visited Chattanooga TN, Athens GA and Highlands NC already!)  Not only did we want to attend the Jubilee, but we also look for any excuse to visit Charleston, SC – so, why not?!


We packed our bags and drove to Charleston for the weekend.  We had the best time!  The Jubilee was held outdoors at Charles Towne Landing and the weather could not have been better.  There were so many amazing vendors and live music.  We will definitely go back next year!


We love you, Charleston!  And events like G +G Jubilee make us love you even more!

A couple of our favorite spots that are a must for your next visit to Charleston:

Black Tap Coffee (3 times!) – where I had a latte sweetened with sweet potatoes!

The Park Cafe– delicious brunch, cutest atmosphere and we were seated immediately!

Gift Guide: Green Beauty Lover

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

I’ve rounded up some favorites that would make AMAZING gifts for any green beauty lover.  Luxury skincare and makeup sets – there’s something for everyone!!

Vintner’s Daughter– One of the best skincare products that I’ve ever tried.  This serum was created with active botanicals – and when they say active, they mean it!  I can literally feel it working and it has given me the smoothest skin!  If you can only buy one green beauty product this Christmas, this is it!!

Maya Chia The Eye Achiever – Hands down, best eye product that I’ve tried.  I didn’t think anything could combat these new mama circles, but it has.  Hallelujah for not looking like a zombie in the morning!

Little Barn Apothecary Aloe + Rosewater Balance Mist – Rosewater is my absolute favorite beauty product.  It is so versatile and something that I really see a difference with. I use it to apply my foundation more smoothly (by wetting my foundation brush), as a moisturizing pick-me-up throughout the day, and on top of my makeup to add glow!  This one is my current fave.

Limited Edition Liquid Lipstick Trio – The Nude Trio dries matte.  Very on trend and versatile.  I love the color selections you get with these limited edition kits.

Color Intense Lip Set – Gorgeous, intense color for the holidays and beyond.  And can we say packaging?  Any woman would love to have this set or it can be split up into multiple gifts!

Flawless in Five – A complete makeup overhaul.  I love every single one of these products.  This gift is great for the woman who keeps saying she ‘needs new makeup.’  It’s an entire new look at such a great price!  The concealer is my favorite!

Vitamin B Cleansing Oil – I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t love this product.  It is a gentle cleanser that does all of the work for you.  No need for a makeup remover and a cleanser – it does both!  And because it’s an oil, it doesn’t leave your skin feeling dry.  This is a hero product for me.

Osmia Detox Mask – Obsessed with this mask but it gives me RESULTS.  I could literally feel my skin changing.  It’s on my Christmas list and I will be a little bummed if I don’t find it under the tree!  This is a new skincare necessity in my book!

The Detox Market Best of Green Beauty Box – Ok, this one was also on my rookie list.  But, I think everyone needs it!  So many fun things to try!!

RMS Luminizer Holiday Gift Set – Glowy skin isn’t just for the holidays.  This would be a makeup bag staple all year long!  Need.

Ruffle Sweaters

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

I’m snowed in today, so I am determined to get ALL of my Christmas shopping done online.  Pretty lofty goals.  Especially when I always get sidetracked with online shopping.  I’m like a fish..just chasing all of the shiny things.

I am pretty obsessed with my new ruffle sleeve sweater (under $30).  It is so super warm and thick..but not bulky.  I feel like I struggle so much with sweaters.  They are rarely flattering on me.  But this one.  This one is gold.  And SUCH a good price!  I linked a few others that I love below.  All under $30!!

SUCH a cute grey ruffle sweatshirt.  NEED.

Pink and a little shimmery.  I’m thinking New Years Day…

Off. the. shoulder. goodness.

Cutest pink ruffle sweatshirt.

These sleeves.  This one is $39.99 but SO good.

This maternity one.

Another maternity!

Gift Guide: The Green Beauty Rookie


2018 sounds like a great time to get started with GREEN BEAUTY!  It can be so overwhelming to overhaul your makeup bag and skincare routine (not to mention your overall home…), so I usually recommend baby steps.  A lip product is a great place to start (because you are literally eating what’s on your lips).  Then, just replacing products when you are ready.


You could get the Best of Green Beauty Box from The Detox Market and get a lot of amazing products in one swoop!

The box has a $310+ value, get the box for only $149!

What’s In the Box?
ODACITÉ Green Ceremony Cleanser | full size 5 oz | $55 value
JOSH ROSEBROOK Hydrating Accelerator | travel size 2 oz | $20 value
MV SKINCARE Rose Soothing and Protective Moisturizer | full size 2.4 oz | $135 value
THE BEAUTY CHEF Collagen Inner Beauty Boost | travel size 3.38 oz | $16 value
RMS BEAUTY Vintage Cake Liner | full size | $24 value
LILY LOLO Natural Vegan Mascara | full size | $20 value
SOAPWALLA Sensitive Skin Deodorant Cream | full size | $16 value
RAHUA Shampoo + Conditioner | travel size set | $16.50 value
DAVIDS Natural Toothpaste | full size | $7.95 value
It’s seriously such an amazing deal!  You can even get 10% OFF when you sign up for their emails! Green beauty rookies and veterans alike would love to see this set under the tree!
 A neutral eye palette is also a great introductory gift into the world of green beauty.  This palette reminds me of the shades on the original Urban Decay Naked Palette.  If your gift recipient has owned a Naked Palette in the past, this one is a great clean replacement for it!
For stocking stuffers, I love this lip + cheek gift set or a nail polish (don’t forget the remover)!
Of course, you can never go wrong with a subscription box, like this one from The Detox Market.  It’s the gift that keeps on giving!  With the Detox Box, you get:





I think I would be the happiest girl on Christmas morning, if this was under my tree!  It’s such a great way to get a jumpstart with green beauty- and gives you something to look forward to every single month!

Happy Gifting!
