Beacoup de Mercis

I previously shared one of my note writing secrets but my other secret: great stationary!!! Every girl should have formal monogrammed stationary and tres fun stationary. My fun stationary? Lilly Pulitzer! I adore the assorted note cards and the mix and match variety pack. I always stock up at Lifeguard Press. They have a f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s selection. Go on and write your heart out!!!

Orange You Glad?

Many thanks to Pink Preppy Lilly Lover for hosting such a fun fun fun giveaway!!! I was so happy to win this Lilly Pulitzer tote bag I think I turned orange! Ha!!! I am very much looking forward to sporting this tote ALL summer, whether at the beach or around town. And, I think it is the perrrrfect accessory to cheer on the CLEMSON TIGERS at the fall football games!!! Don't you!? A big big big thanks to Trish and cheers to squeezing the orange juice out of life! Xoxo-BLC


Nursery Rhymes

This nursery is pink and green heaven!
Many thanks Mamatella for the picture --- and the temptation. Those pink pots and green leaves are calling my name! "BLC, BLC ..." See, you hear it too! Xoxo-BLC


All Wrapped Up

As we head back to reality and I wrap up my second year of law school,
I am wondering ...
Would a Murfee Scarf help me study harder, longer, better for finals? Does watching Law & Order, The Good Wife, and Legally Blonde count as studying? Yes and yessss! I might add a little old-fashioned library quality time in there too. Cheers wrapping up! Xoxo-BLC


Horsing Around

Horsing around at Steeplechase! It rained horsies and jockies allll day long.
While wellies were the favored accessory to fight the rain, derby hats were still a must. I loathe hat hair but I remembered a certain darrrrling flower headband from last year. So instead of a derby hat, I sported a flower clip made by Polka Dots & Protein Bars of Hems & Hers! Many many many thanks PD&PB!!! We enjoyed the races from inside the tent this year --- sipping cocktails and cheering on our favorite horses. Cheers to horsing around with great company --- rain or shine!!! Xoxo-BLC

Talk Derby To Me

We are ...
this weekend!!!
I hope my horsie wins.
Mint julep cheers to you and yours!


Happy Earth Day!

Urgent! According to Mary Phillips, go green or else ... no chocolate!!! Gasp! What are you doing to go green? I adopted LP's motto: reduce, reuse, and recycle. Cheers to a better and greener tomorrow. Happy Earth Day to you and yours! Xoxo-BLC



Oh la la, my thinspiration has me bananas for this bandeau!
What motivates your girlish figure!?


Time Flies!

Time flies when you're having fun! Posting about my agenda in April means I have been having a lot of fun in 2010!!! Ha! When a bff gifted me this planner in September of 2009, I didn't think 2010 could come quick enough. I carry this organizer everywhere I go! The agenda is tabulated for 2010 & 2011 at a glance, dates to celebrate, holidays and contacts, months at a glance, and then each month individually. It even has stickers and "reasons for a party" --- as if I needed any help in that area!!! Go on and get organized with your own Time Flies Agenda from Lifeguard Press. It's even on sale! Calendar cheers to you and yours!! Xoxo-BLC


Going Wild

Pink! My favorite color.
Fins to the left.
Fantastic view.
I throughly enjoyed going wild at the zoooo! Xoxo-BLC


{Piedmont} Park Avenue

A leisure Sunday!? Just what the doctor ordered. We strolled down Piedmont Park Avenue and window shopped at the Dogwood Festival. Most enjoyable! Cheers!!! Xoxo-BLC


Out of Towners

Our favorite native Atlantalite, Paparazzi, hosted us in his hometown, Atlanta, Georgia! We had the best weekend getaway.
While the boys cheered on their respective teams at the Clemson v. Georgia Tech game, the girls visited the exhibit celebrating the life and work of Princess Diana! From her wardrobe to her impact on the world, her life was totally remarkable and truly colorful. Thereafter, we sipped cocktails before eating at Veni Vidi Vici. What a superb day!!! I hope you enjoyed your Saturday too. Xoxo-BLC


TOO Much

Too much ...
candy, days off, friends, lemonade, Lilly shifts, tennis, traveling, zoo visits
... is never enough!
Don't you agree!?!


New York Minute

If you had a New York minute today, what would you do!? I would be wearing this dress (click here) to the American Museum of Natural History's Spring Safari Gala!!! It is the party of Spring. Dining in the Hall of African Mammals coupled with cocktails and dancing in the Hall of Ocean Life, what could be better!? Oh la la! I cannot wait to hear the full report from blog-bff CJM!! New York Minute cheers to you and yours! Xoxo-BLC

PS: Don't forget to wish CJM a Happy Birthday at Murphy's (New) Law! :)
PSS: You did pay your Uncle Sam today, right!? It's Tax Day! :(


Dream Job

I adore Via Shops. I want to visit them all. Each is fun, flirty, and tres colorful. I have two friends who own Lilly Via Shops: Pink Boulevard and Pink on Main!
Both of these girlies are living the dream and absolutely L-O-V-E their job!!! And Lilly Pulitzer is looking to open a few more Via Shops.
Are you tempted like me!???
Don't worry mom and dad, I am NOT dropping out of law school. Practicing law is living the dream for me! Or being White House Social Secretary.
Hey, a girl can dream! Speaking of dreams, what is your dream job!? Cheers to living the dream and big-girl dream jobs! Xoxo-BLC


Take a Ride

... in the Lilly Pulitzer cruiser! With flip-flop friendly pedals this ride is perfect "at beaches, around town, along boardwalks, to farmer's markets, to wherever your stylish life takes you." So, do share, where would you pedal to the medal in your colorful life!? Xoxo-BLC


Neiman Marcus Cookies

Neiman Marcus squashed the rumor that this chocolate chip cookie recipe cost a mini-fortune and even encourages spreading the news! Go on, bake and share!!! Yields 24 chocolatie delish cookies. Nmmm! Xoxo-BLC

The boys just danced better in Charleston, South Carolina! Ha!!! Xoxo-BLC



Today our sweet friends married at the gorgeous Middleton Plantation in Summerville, South Carolina.

The pair met at the Clemson v. Georgia game in 2003. He attended CU and she UGA. In the homily, the minister mentioned it being serendipity because CU and UGA don't play again until 2013!

I couldn't agree more.

We had a blast celebrating their love, laughter, and happily ever after!!!!! Xoxo-BLC


Déjà Vu

Circa 2008, Daddy and stepmadre took the family on a trip out west to celebrate Lala's birthday. We nested in Las Vegas, Nevada and it just so happened my favorite LA bff was also in Sin City! Of course we met up and had a riot of a time (evidence in the picture left)!!! Well, fast forward to now --- and guess who just happened to be in Charleston, South Carolina this weekend for a different wedding? Yessss! Of course we had an absolute ball (again, evidence in the picture below). Aren't surprise encounters just so much fun!?? Xoxo-BLC


Beach Bound

... like weddings!!!
Ale and I are beach bound for friends nupitals!!
The best things in life really do happen at the beach.


Addicted to Love

Start your engines ...
Wedding season is here.
Are you jumping for joy like me!?
What frock will you wear?
Guest? Maid? Bride!?
Cheers to going to the chapel!


Travel Itch

After reading this month's issue of Town & Country, I caught the travel-bug!!! I am itching to go ... anywhere!!! The best article featured delish locals such as: The Cloister at Sea Island, Georgia; Four Seasons Resort at Peninsula Papagayo, Costa Rica; The Resort at Paws Up, Montana; The White Elephant Hotel on Nantucket; Snowmass, Colorado; and, of course, The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida! I have LILLY and will TRAVEL!!! Do you feel the itch too? Xoxo-BLC


Tempted by the Devils

Lilly Pulitzer must have been a Devils fan based on her motto, "Treat a duke like a dustman and a dustman like a duke." Don't you think!? Hehe. Well, the NCAA Tourney was tempted by the Devils and the Devils won!!! Cheers to being national champs!!! Goooo Duke gooo!!! Xoxo-BLC


Hoppy Easter!

After church in the city, we headed into the countryside.
Ale's extended family met at the Farmhouse to mingle, dine, and, of course, hunt for EGGS! A great time was had by all.
Jesus is alive and let us rejoice! Hoppy Easter to you and yours!!


Heading Easter ...

We are headed easter for Easter! What are your holiday plans!? Xoxo-BLC


Happy Birthday Ale!!!

Happy Birthday Ale! I looooove you and am wishing you the very best birthday. Cheers to your day! Xoxo-BLC


Happy April Fool's Day!

Happy April Fool's Day! Remember, as a rule of thumb, trust no one today. Those tricksters are out to get you ... or are YOU being the joker today?! My book of favorites include whoopee cushions, short sheeting beds, saran wrapping the toilie, or announcing pregger news on facebook. You know you want to play a little prankie prank. Be sure to dish if so, but pity the fools. Cheers to making funnies!! Xoxo-BLC
