Louisville + Events: Valentine’s Party at Dandelion

Valentine’s Day is next week but let’s all be real. Do you really want a bunch of cheesy presents? No. Maybe a nice evening out with your honey but when it comes to the gift part, I’m guessing we’d all rather a little happy than some big, over thought gift. Something like new perfume, a fun piece of jewelry, thoughtful trinkets and one of those amazing smelling giant candles that you never want to splurge for, “This smells delicious. {Turns candle over to check price} Oh, $24, nice. {Places back on shelf} Yeah, I’m just gonna get earrings instead.”

This is why I think Valentine’s Day is better suited to celebrating the friend loves in your life rather than the romantic kind. I’m down with celebrating both but you know your bestie is going to get you want you something you didn’t even know you wanted but love so much. And dudes have way too much pressure on them on Valentine’s Day.

In an attempt to make Valentine’s the fun holiday we all know it can be, I’m teaming up with my favorites at Dandelion (located in the Vogue St. Matthews – 3729 Lexington Road) to host a girl’s night out party next week. Mark your calendar for February 12 and stop by with your gals between 5:30 and 7:30 pm for champagne, sweets from Cellar Door Chocolates (yes please!) and a fun night of shopping. There will also be swag bags full of goodies for some of the first guests.

You can also create a ‘wish list’ with items you’d love to see wrapped up on the 14th. Then your date can stop in and pick one of your favorites. You’ll still be surprised but it will be something you truly love. It’s the perfect combination if you ask me.

Just like at Christmas, I stopped in and picked out some of my favorite gift options. And after catching a peek at all of their new arrivals, there are a lot of favorites. I’ve rounded up just a handful of them below but stop in the store and you’ll be able to see how many things I was slapping my seal of approval on(which basically just means: on my wish list).

Side note: If you’ve ever been in there and tried the k.hall Peony lotion, then you know it smells divine. Well they just got the candle of it in and of course, I bought one and it may be the best candle ever. Just throwing that out there. So so good. 

Hope to see a bunch of you there on the 12th!

* Charleston is Always a Good Idea *

 

Popping in for a quick hit this afternoon to share some exciting news. Thanks to Belk, next month I’ll be flying south to Charleston for the city’s Fashion Week alongside a group of bloggers I’m crazy honored to be included with. I’m looking forward to sharing lots of behind the scenes details from the event (which includes a meet and greet with Trina Turk!) as part of the first Southern Style Summit. And yeah, I’m obviously looking forward to the warm weather.

I haven’t been to Charleston in ages but there’s something in the water this year because with this, a wedding and a possible bachelorette weekend, I may be heading there three times in three months. Hopefully I’ll be full of travel tips and recommendations by mid-summer.

I try to keep it real over here so I will say this is one of those pinch me moments I never expected to have when I started this blog. And as much as I’d like to think I’ll have my act together composing amazing print-worthy instagram snaps,  let’s all be real, you know I’ll just be a mildly composed fan-girl sharing the scoop as I see it. The countdown to March 18th is on!

Events + Style Spotting: Gumer & Co. ‘Diamonds, Drinks & Discounts’

Last week, Gumer & Co. Jewelry hosted a shopping event that was a combination of things I can definitely get behind. Diamonds, Drinks & Discounts. Yes please. 

Nothing like getting together over the holidays and picking out some new sparkly jewelry over a cocktail. I couldn’t make it to the party but some pals snapped some pictures of the set-up that included drinks from Copper & Kings and apps from Brownies The Shed. How pretty are those cocktail rings Emilee is sporting below?

In between the wining and dining, there was lots of trying on pieces from their gorgeous selection of jewelry.  How pretty are those cocktail rings Emilee is sporting below?

But it wasn’t all break the bank jewels. Gumer & Co. (225 S. Hurstbourne Parkway | 502.327.3330) has a ton of great gift options – like these Alex and Ani bracelets – that will put a smile on any gals face. You can even go in and pick out some favorites and then send your guy in to pick from the options. And if you know a guy looking to pop the question and make it a December to remember,  Gumer & Co. has a special right now where they will buy the groom’s wedding band when he seals the deal on an engagement ring for the bride-to-be. If you stop in, be sure to tell ‘em you saw it here!
