Mac & Murphy

I have been hearing about Mac & Murphy for while. For whatever reason I rarely get over to this side of town. This is the sweetest paper store! I wanted to buy a little of everything. 

I couldn't get enough of the cheeky cards on the wall. 

This card is very Charleston appropriate. 

My mom would go nuts for the reversible wrapping paper hanging on the wall.

 I left with visions of Christmas cards in my head. I've never participated in this tradition but I think it's time to start. 

I did indulge in a few Susy Jack office supplies. Bright, cheery calendars and to do list's make for a productive work environment. All in all the store is very cute and has some impressive products. You should definitely check it out!

Gourmet Doughnuts

 Pumpkin Spice Donuts 

Mexican Chocolate Donuts

Krispy Kreme, It feels like I am cheating on you. Is it possible to love another Southern donughnut shop? Twice this week I've indulged in Glazed Gourmet's fancy doughnuts. Bites of pumpkin spice, sour dough, Mexican chocolate and regular glazed. Yum! I was lucky enough to be able to try one Wednesday morning when they first opened their doors. These tasty treats are addicting... I headed back for more on Friday to get some for a friend's birthday. 

Pumpkin was the group favorite. It doesn't taste too pumpkiny (or manufactured). Mixed reviews with Mexican chocolate. Some people don't love the spicy but I enjoyed it. Between my popsicles last weekend and these doughtnuts I am sensing a trend with the Mexican chocolate. M loved the regular glazed because they are super soft. 
I can't wait to try the raspberry, pistachio and maple bacon. Fancy!

A handbag the color of oysters...

Grey is clearly my new favorite color. This shade reminds me of oysters. I could use a good ole country oyster roast right now! If I had to choose one of these pretty handbags I would pick the one on top... it just looks a little more polished. Usually my favorite fall color is mustard yellow. Do you have a go to color this season?

Healthy Tailgate

Unfortunately M has some new dietary restrictions that have us looking for tasty low fat food. I found these baked Buffalo Chicken Rolls on a blog about healthy eating. Andie writes over at Can you stay for dinner? which chronicles a very inspiring journey of a food writer who lost 135 lbs and has maintained her weight. She has so many great recipes. 
Mmm... Slow Cooked Sweet Potato Chili. Do you have a favorite healthy recipe?

Almost scarf weather!

I love these! I was not taught how to wear scarves growing up. We pretty much wore flip flops with jackets when it was cold out. I am catching up quick though. I love the scarf in the top left box. Hope your weekend was restful!

Fall Fun

I went to the farmers market today and had the best time. I have been cooped up and it was nice to get out. I got together with a friend this morning and we started the day with painting our nails. I love fall nail polish! It makes me feel so girly. I was able to wear my new boots. Thank you for your votes a couple weeks ago. I finally decided on the Frye Melissa boots.

The weather was a little warmer than expected so when we came across King of Pops gourmet popsicles, we had to indulge. I've heard about these guys for months and finally got to try them. Delicious! They use social media to broadcast their locations. I tried the mexican chocolate and my friend got key lime pie. They were so good we tried for a second helping later, but they had already moved to their next location.

We watched the Gamecocks beat Kentucky 54-3! The score reminds me of high school football. I am watching more football with M tonight. All in all it has been a great day. The weekends mean a lot lately. I am so grateful for a little rest!

I love this neutral shade! I need to get a fall nail polish soon. I gave myself a pedicure yesterday and I really felt like I was doing something good for myself. Sometimes little indulgences like fancy nail polish make you feel good inside and out.

Comfy Cozy

I'm spending more time in loungewear than normal these days. I spotted these super cute Bedhead pajamas at 
Urban Nirvana today. I love the pink trim. Here's to being comfy and having a restful weekend!
