Leopard Loving and Candle Making

This photo couldn't have been taken at a worst angle.  Yuck.  It's so bad.  I swear I'm wearing a really cute coat that isn't usually this unflattering.  I also swear that my arse isn't as big as freaking Texas.  Let's ignore the zebra printed Lone Star State and move on.

The point of showing you this horrendous photo of myself is to focus on two things.

Exhibit A:

How cute is Sam in her  faux fur leopard coat?!  

How excited am I that it's on it's way to me?!

I've been on the hunt for one of these for quite a while.  I ordered one months ago from Piperlime but it made me look like a real-life pimp so I sent it back.  I've seen others, but they've been expensive and this may be a short-lived trend that isn't worth investing a ton of money in.   This Forever 21 coat is on sale and much easier on my budget!

I also snagged this black and white hooded leopard print cardigan.  It looks so cozy and perfect to throw on with a graphic tee, jeans, and boots during this chilly winter we're having.

Exhibit B:

This photo is from a girls' night at Candlefish in downtown Charleston.

It's in the chicest little building on the corner of Wentworth and King St.  You can BYOEverything and have a wonderful time making your own candles.  My suggestion is to go on the weekend to make scented ones.  The weeknight classes are for unscented candles (for the time being).  They have the most amazing selection of scents and all sorts of candles and knick knacks to purchase.  Definitely check this place out!

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  Nashville starts back up tonight and I can't wait!  I'm so glad that Rayna dumped Luke.  He gave me the willies.  #teamraynaanddeacon I can't wait to see how Juliette and Avery are doing as a married couple!  They are so cute together!  Do you watch?  Who are your favorites?


  1. #1- I am buying that coat for myself ASAP, hope you don't mind me copying you all :) #2- I am so excited for Nashville to be back! I'm so glad Rayna dumped Luke and I'm hoping her and Deacon get together finally. I love Avery and Juliette together and I'm so happy he came around to her and they got married. Can't wait to see how the rest of this season plays out!
