Hey y'all!

It's been almost two months since I've shared my insta posts with y'all, so I decided that I'm going to do a mini roundup and catch you up with my life!

If you're not following along already, visit with me over at @SouthernAndStyle 
I share my favorite outfits, products, what I'm up to, etc. over there :)

On Sunday, I shared one of my favorite snacks-an iced coffee (in my favorite Lilly tumbler no-less!) and some yummy granola.

This granola is actually one of my favorite snack finds that I've stumbled upon lately.
It's by a company called Luv Michael & it is not just a tasty snack.
This company was born from an 18 year old boy who has autism.
Michael loved to cook, but was unable to attend culinary school because of his lack of a high school diploma. Luv Michael was born as a way of expressing his love of cooking as well as allowing other individuals with autism to gain vocational training.

Other than the positive message of this company-which is amazing in itself-the granola tastes so good!
It's like your mother's oatmeal cookies, but even better because it's Gluten Free, Nut Free, GMO Free so that means lots of people can enjoy it!
My second favorite way to enjoy it (other than just plain!) is crumbled up on top of greek yogurt with a touch of honey, it's so yummy!

Y'all, it is still SO hot in Alabama right now.
But when I was wandering around the Summit last weekend I had to stop in at Lush.
Those bath bombs all smelled, well....bomb.
They smelled so good & I cannot wait for the weather to cool down so I can relax in a warm bath!

So I just want to let y'all know how much I love companies that take care of their "fans"...
I tweeted International Delight about how I would love it if they "sponsored my mornings" because then I would never go without my favorite creamer again.
They tweeted me back & asked if they could send me some goodies, my favorites are the "hello sunshine" spoon & the knitted coasters-so cute & such a sweet company!

This sign that I bought last year from Hobby Lobby (on sale too!) has been used at so many parties, y'all.
This is a shot from my husband's 30th birthday party-I loved decorating for it & will hopefully be sharing more photos soon :)

On our summer trip to Nashville (it seems like so long ago!) I tried on these two beauties in the Lilly store at Green Hills mall.
I fell hard for the white embroidered dress, but didn't fall in love with the $200 price tag.
I wanted it so badly during the Lilly After Party Sale, but didn't manage to get on the website in time...
Thanks to the beautiful Lilly community on FB, I was able to track down that dress for less than $100 in Tulsa and had it shipped to my door.
Needless to say, I was thrilled!

I LOVE this shot so, so much.
These pears came from my husband's sweet grandfather's pear tree & they tasted amazing.
There is nothing more than fresh apples, pears, and pumpkins that makes me think of Fall.

This is another shot from my husband's birthday party-I put together some of my favorite blooms for the tables; hydrangeas & sunflowers look amazing together!

I hope y'all enjoyed this update post-I know some of you don't follow along on Insta so I wanted to share here too :)

Until next time. . .
