Friday Thoughts

Remember how I mentioned that it's face melting hot here in Charleston right now? Well the skies have been gracing us with rain which has given us some cooler evenings. Yeehaw. I snapped this while walking downtown a couple of nights ago. Even our sidewalks are gorgeous. Just saying.

Like I said over on Camila's blog, I'm not so much an effortless style kind of girl. By this I mean that I put a lot of thought into my spaces and wardrobe. But everyone has a few pieces they can mindlessly throw on that make them feel like the cat's meow. Here's one of mine.

You can read & see more at Effortless Style. Camila really is the cat's meow herself. Always finding the best things and doing impressive projects (really impressive, not lame DIY stuff). You read her blog, right? I have for years. And she's the one who hooked me up with the Nate Berkus Blogger show just 2 weeks after I started my blog. A good gal there.

You know how good Bang Bang Shrimp is. Well I'm betting this Bang Bang Cauliflower is freaking awesome too. I want to make it soon.

And for all my talented southern readers out there, Garden & Gun just launched their 3rd annual "Made in the South Awards" and are accepting entries through August 1st.

Do you know how freaking happy I would be to see some LLL readers represent in there??! If you think you can compete, go check it out.

I know my posts have felt random lately (at least to me). I'm feeling rather scattered. More on that later perhaps. Maybe summer brain. But happy weekend, Everyone! I hope you all enjoy it as much as I plan to. I promise I'll get a house update for you next week! I know I'm late on that.
