Philly girl goes to Nashville

Hey Ya’ll,

I went to visit my best friend, Samantha in Nashville for Thanksgiving. I’ve never been to the Music City before. I love the good food, music, and positive vibes! I’ll definitely be back.

Explore: Downtown Nashville- booze, music, and southern food.    Batman Building!

Downtown is also where the Johnny Cash Museum and the Country Music Hall of Fame are located.


You can even see the Titans’ stadium  from downtown.


The famous Tootsies! Live music on all three floors! We ordered food there and I loved their BBQ pulled pork sandwich, fried pickles, and fried string beans.

Shop: Boutiques everywhere especially at the Golch! My favorite boutique was Blush because it was affordable and more of my style. However, I did like Two Old Hippies because they had a live band at the back of the store and E.Allen because I got an awesome reversible poncho that I wore the next day. Sam and I bought it because it was too cute and 20% off because of Small Business Saturday. Everyone complimented the poncho everywhere I went that day and I had a conversation with at least one person at every store because they were all so friendly!

I had to stop by the Green Hills shopping center too. We had to go to the Kendra Scott store because Sam and I are obsessed with her stuff. Everything in the store was 15% off and they gave us complimentary champagne. I purchased a turquoise ring and the Elisa necklace in white. The ladies were so helpful and sweet. It was a great experience.

Vineyard vines! I bought a plain long sleeve t-shirt that had Nashville on the back and two complimentary VV stickers.

 Food: I love food and every spot we checked out was so good. At night we went to 12 South. We went to Urban Grub, Embers Ski Lodge, and Bartaco. We had delicious tacos at Bartaco. I ordered the duck, spicy chorizo, and sesame ribeye. All of my tacos were really good but I was told that the pork belly and the Baja fish were the favorites.

Biscuit love was my first brunch stop. You order your food in line, then they’ll show you to your table. I order the Southern hot chicken one called the Princess. Sam ordered the Southern Benny.

I had it without the mustard. It was sweet and spicy because of the honey.

My favorite brunch place was the famous, Loveless Cafe.

Sam was told that the wait would be long but we went on a Monday afternoon and the wait was only 5 minutes. I wanted everything on the menu. Of course we ordered breakfast food. I got the Pit-cooked Pork BBQ and two eggs with home fried potatoes. Sam ordered the Biscuit Sampler – which I highly recommend so you can have a little of everything!

   

  

  

  

 Pecan, chess, and fudge pie for dessert!  I ended up buying their jam from the airport but you can always order it online! 

 

Until next time, Nashville!

Shop with a Purpose – Birthday event at Wardobe Boutique

Hosting my birthday at The Wardrobe Boutique was a great way to celebrate another year of life and to promote the organization. Most of my friends know I volunteer for this organization but didn’t get a chance to check it out yet. So this was the perfect opportunity for them to get rid of their old clothes, buy new ones, and learn about the organization that empower women! The staff members are so friendly and helpful. 

So the next time you plan your next event or want to volunteer on your own or with an organization, email boutique@careerwardrobe.org

All of my guests received 20% off ! 

   

The spread…  

Yes, there’s an Oreo cookie on the bottom of the red velvet cupcake. Thanks Liza! 
 Shopping for a cause!   

My friends from my high school still love me. I think, ha.   

  

My friend Judy and I had to do a shoe of the day picture.   

Thanks to the Wardrobe Boutique for letting me host my birthday and for this Lilly bag! I wish I had more time to shop but I did manage to pick up this grey J.crew cardigan. 

  

Thank you everyone for coming! My friends and I donated tons of clothes and all of the purchased items benefit Career Wardrobe!

Sunday Funday

Sundays are the best days to relax and do what makes you happy. My friend Sara and I have been trying to go thrifting together for the longest. So we finally decided last minute to go to The Golden Nugget flea market in NJ. We both scored a few items just enough to fit in her car. I can spend all day at this awesome vintage flea market. We went at 9 am which made parking easy and traffic was light. We were done by 11:30 and decided to get brunch in New Hope, PA. I’ve lived in Philly all of my life but have never been to New Hope. It is the most adorable, historic, scenic town I’ve been to in PA. We ate at Karla’s and both had eggs Benedict. I had the smoked salmon and Sara had the grilled veggie with chipotle sauce. Of course we had to share it. Thanks so much Sara for bringing me here! 

    

  

 I bought this from the Golden Nugget for $35. Can’t wait to sand & paint it for my next DIY project.

New Hope, PA -my photos doesn’t do it justice. It’s a must visit place. 

   

    
   
   
 
Thanks for reading! I hope you all had a great Sunday too.

Must Have Bow Wedges

Just sharing another PreppyTeppy find. I found the perfect wedges with a cute bow on the back. It comes in three different colors- black, white, and pink.  Believe it or not but they’re from Target! 

I bought both white and pink. The white one was too bridal like for me so I returned them. They are true to size but a little narrow in the front.

Check them out

   
   

Tassel earrings

I see it on my IG feed maybe once a day. I was hesitant at first but I actually really like my first pair of tassel earrings. I didn’t want to spend a fortune on beaded earrings and even thought maybe I can make my own but I don’t have the time so I stumbled on Purpleperidot.com

For today only, they are having a sale on these earrings. They are $14.99 but originally $29.99. 

  

   
 

Kendra Scott earrings

I went to Nordstrom today and found out that they were price matching so my Kendra Scott earrings came out to $41.60. I decided to get two. It’s free shipping online and don’t forget to sign up for ebates.com to get money back on your online purchases. You can get up to 6% back if you shop at Nordstrom. 

   

This is the meduim size so it’s perfect for my ears since the large ones are too heavy for my ear lopes. 

This is turquoise and white.  

  

 

Online shopping

Hello blog readers,

Most of us have a love/hate relationship with online shopping. It’s convenient in the sense that you don’t have to drive anywhere. However, you don’t know how the item will look on you. I also don’t like paying for shipping. So I tend to google coupon codes. If I decide to purchase, I usually go through ebates.com to get money back. It actually works and I’m surprised that it does! 

I tend to see a lot more companies reaching out after you’ve added items to your cart but didn’t purchase yet. I did this for this forever21 top. I really liked it because I saw it from other bloggers but I didn’t know if I really wanted it. So I signed in, left it in my cart and a couple of days later I received 40% off coupon code plus free shipping! I couldn’t say no at that point, plus I had a gift card. In total I paid less than 7 bucks for this top. I must say, it might be worthwhile to leave your cart because you never know what offer they will give you to complete your order. It’s also risky because it might get sold out. I guess it depends on how much you like the item. 

Happy Shopping!
