Boogie Nights: Nashville Boogie Vintage Weekender & Car Show!

Photo Courtesy of: DBLR Photo

As some of you are aware from my Facebook or Snapchat, I spent this past weekend in Nashville for the Nashville Boogie! Cody and I took flight early on Thursday morning (7am flight, hello!) and landed in Nashville before 9am.


I did this so that we could have the entire day Thursday to explore together before the Nashville boogie started. We went from the airport straight downtown in our little rental car that could to wander around and see a few museums.

BBRBF Book Club: Caraval by Stephanie Gordon


Well, my peanuts, it's mid-May and I just wrapped up my marathon of 3 Las Vegas trade shows in a row. Needless to say, I am POOPED! I ended the marathon with an hour long massage at the spa in the Palazzo before flying back home and let me tell you - it was the BEST IDEA EVER. Especially because right after the massage, I sought out and enjoyed a bowl of chocolate and raspberry truffle gelato. Massages with an ice cream finale need to become a thing - STAT!


Vegas aside, let's talk this month's BBRBF Book Club read: Caraval by Stephanie Gordon. Be sure to keep an eye on the other club members' blogs for their thoughts and inspired outfits: Helene from Circle Skirts and Petticoats, Kat from The Miss Information Blog, Kristina from Eyre Effect, Noelle from The Classy Junk,  Laci Fay, and Justyna from Hazel & Honey!

Peanut Butter Fudge Oreo Icebox Cake


You know what dessert I am starting to really appreciate? The kind that pretty much makes itself.


With how busy the past few months have been for me, recipes like icebox cakes really make me happy.

Roadside Circus (Inger-Rose Dress from Miss Candyfloss)


If you're anything like me, you've been drooling all over your keyboard ever since Miss Candyfloss released their look book for the new Housewife collection a couple months back. With every glimpse at the new dresses to come, my eyes grew wider and wider in awe. Can you find a more beautiful collection out there right now? I'd argue that you can't!

Green Thumb (Mainline Coco Dungarees by Collectif)


I have to start off by admitting that I did NOT think these Coco dungaree overalls from Collectif would see the light of day never mind a feature on this blog. I ordered them while thinking "why are you spending money on these when you've been doing so well trying NOT to spend money? You know they probably won't fit right and will just end up looking like Mom jeans or not fitting your strangely proportioned body..."


Because typically, if I even CONSIDER stepping out of my comfort zone and what is familiar, it becomes disastrous. But when I saw the lovely Nora Finds rocking them to pieces on her blog a few weeks back, I kinda had to have them!

Shake It (featuring Kristina from The Eyre Effect)


Before you get all kinds of excited - no, I am NOT once again in Seattle. I mean, funny enough, I am once again in Las Vegas as this post goes live, but sadly, it doesn't end with taking photos with Kristina of The Eyre Effect again.

BBRBF Book Club: Secret History of Wonder Woman


Well, I am taking off tomorrow yet again for Las Vegas (Vegas trip 2 out of 3, for those keeping track) to manage 200+ meetings and 5+ customer events at NAB, my team's largest trade show that we do every year.


But you didn't come here to listen to be blabber on about that. Today is this month's BBRBF Book Club review day! This month, we imagined what is like to be a superhero with Jill Lepore's The Secret History of Wonder Woman.
