Ikea Storage for your Accessories

The mirrored doors I photographed below belong to my friend Joy.  She has a Pax Wardrobe Ikea Storage System that is the perfect solution for those who have lots of accessories and limited closet/storage space.  The mirrored doors are useful when dressing and checking your outfit right before you leave the house!

The inside of the storage piece can be customized to include rods for hanging garments, racks for shoes, drawers for lingerie, baskets for miscellaneous items, and hooks and trays for jewelry.  On the bottom right side, Joy stores her lingerie {which is all so colorful and prissy, but private}and her jewelry is in the top section.  Miss Joy has a lot of bling and this is the perfect solution for her.

Necklaces and bracelets...

More necklaces.  More bracelets.

And more bracelets...

Love the jade necklace!

Colorful watches...

Bling rings!


On the left hand side she stores her flip flops and shirts.  Joy lives at the beach and is always wearing flip flops...year round, Lord have mercy!

Camis and tees...

I would show y'all Miss Joy's colorful closet; however, it's kinda dark, but crammed full with all kinds of J Crew cute loot.
Hope you have enjoyed the tour of Miss Joy's storage area!

I've Jumped on the Bubble Necklace Bandwagon!

I promised myself I wasn't going to do it...but yes, I have jumped on the super popular bubble necklace bandwagon. I found a couple of them {knockoffs} at the local flea market and the rest I ordered on eBay...from China.  I loved that I got each of them for less than $10, including free shipping!

J Crew made these necklaces popular awhile back and they originally sold for $150.  Right now they have this necklace on sale for $99.99.  Y'all please...I love J Crew, but I just can't see myself spending this much on a necklace that might be out-of-style next week.

I think that my new $8 necklaces look the same as the expensive ones and I have no problem wearing my necklaces from China!  You can find some cute bubble necklaces in bright colors on eBay here.

Thank you for visiting with me today and y'all have a wonderful week!

Monogrammed Cuteness from the Pink Giraffe

I'm obsessed with my new monogrammed tissue box cover from The Pink Giraffe!  I love the geo print, the pink, and the green.

Eliza at The Pink Giraffe was so sweet to send me this preppy addition to my pink and green guest bath.  I love that it is monogrammed on both sides!

Eliza offers monogrammed linen covers or one like mine--galvanized metal.  You can choose your pattern, background color, and monogram style/color.

Of course it goes perfect with my Lilly shower curtain...

I'm also obsessed with starfish and seahorses right now!

And monkeys...but I've been obsessed with monkeys for years! never stops!

I finally hung the fabulous Lilly print my BF Joy gave me...more pink and green on the wall entering the bath area!

Visit Miss Eliza at The Pink Giraffe.  She has cute personalized loot for every occasion.  I love her monogrammed chandelier shades.  I bought my first shades from her back when I lived in Mississippi and can't wait to receive the pink ones she's creating for me now.  Be on the lookout for that post!

Southern Living Weddings Giveaway

I was more than happy when Kley Sippel from Southern Living magazine contacted me and asked if I would review the latest edition of their 3rd annual wedding magazine.  Even though I'm not planning a wedding, I always love looking at wedding magazines...especially those featuring beautiful Southern brides.  Southern Living never disappoints and today they are offering to give 2 of my lucky readers a copy of the new "Southern Living Weddings" mag, hot off the press!

I adore the photograph on the cover of Amanda--the featured wedding..a true Southern cover girl bride and her bridesmaids.

Amanda and her groom Quinn were married in the Greensboro, Georgia United Methodist Church.

Their reception was held at Reynold's Plantation...this is one of the stops on my bucket list.  I drool when I drive through this small community on my way from Augusta to Warner Robins.  Yes, I need a couple of nights at the Ritz in Greensboro!

I love Amanda's fabulous wedding gown and adore those gold cocktail-length bridesmaid dresses!  Picture perfect!

How sweet is Amanda's bouquet with brooches that belonged to each of her grandmothers?!

The magazine features a gift guide...and of course, I have my faves...The monogrammed button down...oh-so popular now.

All the brides are doing it...fill the custom-printed bags with goodies for your guest.  Grits y'all?

Love these candles..may have to get the 'Sea Y'all' one for myself!

There are ideas for the oh-so important signature cocktails...

and colorful eye-catching cakes.

Twenty-five real weddings are featured where the couples highlight their personal spins and advice on Southern style:
~Most worth-it splurge
~Smartest save
~Favorite moment
~Every Southern bride should have
~Secret style source
~Favorite personal touch
~First Dance

GIVEAWAY:  All you have to do to be entered to win a copy of "Southern Living Weddings" is to leave a comment with your e-mail address.  Whether you are a bride-to-be, intend to give the magazine as a gift, or are like me and just love looking at all the details of beautiful events, you will love this magazine full of beautiful color photographs of Southern-style weddings.

This contest will end Friday morning at 9:00 a.m. E.S.T. and I will announce the winners at that time.  Good luck y'all!
