Event Recap: Nordstrom x The Charlotte Social

On Monday night I met up with some amazing Charlotte area bloggers for an event at Nordstrom! We sipped champagne while we got to look at some of the amazing holiday items that have arrived at Nordstrom! I love dressing up for the holidays, so I was thrilled to see that there was a plethora of black, gold, and sequin items, my favorites!

I stayed pretty close to the Topshop area all night. I couldn’t get enough of the prints, embellishments, and all of the leather and velvet items! Seriously, this velvet leopard skirt from Topshop is amazing and so perfect for the holidays… don’t you worry it will be mine shortly! 😉

I had such a great time at this event getting to meet, mingle, and try on some fun holiday looks with this wonderful group of ladies! I am constantly reminded of how rewarding blogging is when I get to be surrounded by such wonderful ladies!

  • Weekend plan: find Bernadette! 🕶💁🏼‍♀️🌍🎬so beyond thrilled that Where’d You Go Bernadette is officially in theaters TODAY! 🎉 last month I jetted off to Toronto thanks to @bernadettefilm for a once in a lifetime experience. We got to go to an advanced screening of #WheredYouGoBernadette followed by a Q&A with #RichardLinklater and the cast of the movie. It was truly fascinating hearing them talk about @mariasemple’s book to movie adaption, how they related to #Bernadette & all the filming details! I think I’m still reeling from being in the same room as these talented people! And yes, I totally fan girled over meeting & chatting with @sleepinthegardn (PLL FAN 4 LYFE!) 😂

If you loved the book, be sure to see the movie! And if you haven’t read the book yet, definitely add it to your shelf! 📚 #enwreads They did an incredible job adapting this book and maintaining the essence of Bernadette’s witty, exotic character! I think you’ll find yourself relating to Bernadette in *some* way throughout the movie! I loved it - I laughed, I teared up & it’s full of heartwarming moments! Huge thanks to @bernadettefilm for the wonderful weekend in #Toronto! 💙[ad] #cateblanchette #bernadettefilm #troianbellisario

  • To be completely honest, today has been a shit show 🤦🏼‍♀️ My morning started off at 3:15 with a sick pup & continued snow balling until about 5:00 this evening. Some days just get the best of ya & today our animals got the best of me and Nick🤣 luckily they’re both ok 🐶🐱 but man, today was rough and stressful! The highlight of my day was meeting @_happygocurly_ for coffee while she was in town this AM! ☕️ We have never met, but had been friends online for years!  It was like grabbing coffee with an old friend! 👯‍♀️ chin up friends, the weekend is *almost* here!
