A Southern girl is a girl who knows full and well that she can open a door for herself but prefers for the gentleman to do it because it demonstrates a sense of respect. After all, every girl wants to be treated like a princess. She knows how to make sweet tea and grits while telling you everything about any football team in the SEC. She picks her battles and fights with the heart of a pit-bull while still maintaining grace and elegance. Her mystique is that of a soft-spoken, mild-mannered southern belle who could direct an army, loves her momma, and will always be daddy's little girl.

What's in my Bag?

What's in my Bag?

I feel like I'm the only one who hasn't done a "What's in my Bag" post yet.
So here it goes...

My bag is Kate Spade Wellesey Quinn. The one I have is pebbled leather, the one pictured is Patent leather. It was my early Easter gift.
of course I always have my Blackberry Tour, if it's not in my hand!
Next is my Lilly Pulitzer Agenda, I have all of my phone numbers, email addresses, home addresses, passwords and of course all of my plans are included in here. I would be completely lost if this ever left my sight!
I always carry some Jergens Ultra Healing Lotion, it is the perfect size and works great to carry wherever I go because it is light and doesn't leave a thick film on my hands
I also carry a stick of Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula. everyone teases me because they say it looks like a glue stick but it is my saving grace during the windy and frigid days of Winter.
Most days I carry my Sony Cyber- Shot Camera with me, I never know when I may need it!
I always try to keep my Sunglasses with me too, sometimes they stay on Croakies around my neck though, just because I am afraid they will get scratched or crushed in my Bottomless BAG!
5 Gum is my favorite! I always have at least one pack on hand because Mama is sure to send me about 4 packs in my care packages!
My Kappa Delta Original Lilly Pulitzer Wallet is the most useful wallet I have ever owned! It is the perfect size if I want to carry it as a clutch and it holds everything I may need.
Although I don't really believe in hand sanitizer, I usually have Bath and Body Works gel or foam on hand just for my own personal sanity! Island Nectar is my favorite scent.
lastly... people also joke about me always carrying a Brush and Pony Tail Holders. I am a fanatic about my hair!

All of these items are a must- have at all times! I also have duplicates of these in my backpack because I don't carry my purse to class with me.

Happy early Easter

Yesterday when I arrived home look what my Mama had waiting for me...Kate Spade Wellesley Quinn

I am so excited! This is my Easter present but she knew I would want to take it on Spring Break so she gave it to me a little early! I am so happy, I have been dying for this for years, it is such a classic staple! I think it is so classy and sophisticated looking! Thanks, Mama!
oh... and on a side note, we finally made it to Jacksonville this evening, a little before 5pm! It was a long ride but I'm sure it will be well worth it!

Check this out!

I saw this on Twitter yesterday. Isn't it the cutest thing ever? I would love to see this at a tailgate!
Vineyard Vines anything is just precious!
Love it!

Thankful Thursday

Right now, at this very moment, I am SO thankful that I am in my LAST class before Spring Break. On Saturday I will be right here:
Jacksonville, Florida.

Wearing this:

My seersucker bathing suit.

I am taking a relaxing Spring Break trip with my mom, to stay with Nana in Jax. I am so excited, I really can't wait to get away. I just want to lay on the beach, tanning with my toes in the sand- and just forget about all the work I have going on at School. I have had 2 of the busiest weeks ever! I am trying to just keep my head above water with all of the work I have been swamped with, right around midterms! And although I am in my last class, I still have to stay on campus all day to get my work do that teachers assigned to be due Monday that we return to classes. Oh... and did I mention that you HAVE to be on campus to complete these assignments?! I am really frustrated but I will be going home early tomorrow morning.

No trip would be complete without shopping! Mom and I always make a trip to St. Augustine for all of the shopping there. They have several thrift stores and also outlets there. I love shopping out of town because I always am able to find unique items and vintage clothes!
So as I leave this class and finish my busy day, I could not be any more thankful, this Thursday!!
