Au Lait

This past weekend I went into TJMaxx looking for a new bed pillow.  But let's not kid ourselves; I knew that I would probably walk out with more than just a pillow.  Who can go into TJMaxx and only come out with one thing?  If that's you, I applaud you, but this girl has never accomplished such a feat.

So true to form, I did leave with a more few things, some of which I will be sharing with you today.
Feast your eyes upon these beauts.

Now before you start thinking "Really, Mallory?  Soap?!" let me explain.

Listen, I love the yummy smelling scents from Bath & Body Works as much as the next girl.   When they have a sale, who can really resist picking up some Warm Vanilla Sugar or Sweet Pea?  BUT as good as their soaps may smell and as long as they may last (longer than the cheaper Dial version I may add), their looks just don't cut it for me.

I hate to walk into a beautifully done bathroom only to see some cheap plastic bottle with bright colored stickers totally ruining the bathroom mojo.  So herein lies my reason for the excitement behind my new soap.  I mean, honestly, the packaging is beautiful--simple and classic...even with a cow on the front.  And it smells heavenly.  Naturally, I had to pick up a bottle of the body milk (lotion) as well.  I can't resist a good glass bottle.

And you know what else is great about these two?  Their price!  I always love to know how good of a deal I score, so, in the words of my husband, I "took it to the Googledome."  I found both on Amazon, albeit for a much larger price tag.

Amazon: $28.87 (excluding shipping).  My price: $5.99.  Savings: 79%

Amazon: $27.50 (excluding shipping).  My price: $4.99.  Savings: 82%

Thank you, TJ!  My love for you grows deeper and deeper every time we meet :)

New Coffee Table

After more than a year of debate, I've finally decided on and ordered us a new coffee table! As mentioned here , there were several styles I was considering.  However, in the end the tufted ottoman came out on top.  Not only was it versatile, so it can be used for years to come, but it also will be good for when we have kiddos down the road.  I can't tell you how many people I know who have had to either remove their coffee tables for the safety of their kids' noggins or have had to add those tacky corner protectors.  I did not want to invest in a new piece only to have to stow it away down the road.  So this seemed to be the perfect solution.  And thanks to my Joss & Main membership, it turned out to be the perfect price too. I was all set to order a tufted ottoman from Ballard Designs.  I had already received a swatch sample of the fabric I selected and everything.  But a few days later, I got a notification from Joss & Main of a sale event called The Tufted C

Our Living Room Mood Board

Our living room is slowly but surely coming together.  The biggest To Do's are ordering a new media console, painting the room (which is unfortunately open to the dining room, kitchen, office and breakfast area which means lots of painting to be done!), order a few lamps and a console for the long wall behind the couch. I realize I haven't shared any pictures of our "new" house (we moved in at the end of last October) with you guys.  So here's a glimpse of the living room before we moved in. This is what you see when you walk in the front door.  The dining room is on the left, the living room is straight ahead and the office on the right. A closer look at the living room.  Florida loves their plant ledges...I do not.  You win some.  You lose some.  I also want to replace the tile around the fireplace.   A view from the back of the living room looking toward the front corner of the house. The room behind the half green wall is the office sans the Fr

Southern Gentleman Baby Shower

Last month I helped throw my best friend (we met in 9th grade speech class :)) Lauren's baby shower for her soon-to-arrive baby boy, Gunner.  The shower had a "Southern gentleman" theme complete with bow ties, silhouettes and gingham print.  Personal touches and family items were used throughout, including baby Gunner's dad's bow ties :) Gunner's daddy's "going home" outfit greeted guests at the sign in table, along with a framed "Southern gentleman in the making" print. A variety of centerpieces graced the tables with groupings of baby mementos, flowers and photos. An antique baby basket helped house the gifts. The drink menu consisted of milk, apple juice (one of Lauren's cravings), fruit-infused water and coffee. The menu was made of a variety of brunch goodies including fruit, doughnuts, muffins, shrimp and grits, breakfast casserole and a waffle bar.  And of course no shower is comp
