Ten On Tuesday [No.5]

Hey y'all!
Welcome back to another addition of Ten on Tuesday!

Since my last post, I've been having such a great few days and I can't wait to share all of this with y'all!


I have loved decorating for Spring (& Easter) this year because it just feels like a fresh start, which I love.

[You can always see my new decor on IG: @SouthernAndStyle]

Some of my favorite pieces are the preserved boxwood topiaries, my bunnies (the moss one is from TJ Maxx & the white one is from Target), my ginger jar, and my little sign which was a dollar spot find last year!


If you're a football fan, you've probably heard of a guy named Mark Pike who went to the Superbowl four times with the Buffalo Bills.

He and his son, Zeke visited the school I teach at on Wednesday (and the church I go to also that evening).
If you haven't heard Zeke's story, I won't spoil it for you but I encourage you to read it here where he shared it with Sport's Illustrated

He has an amazing story & I'm so glad my students had the opportunity to hear it. This guy is only 2 months older than me and because of choices he and I have made, ours are 100% different. It definitely will make you think!

On my Saturday post, I talked about my nail polish picks for Spring and now that I've gotten in the habit of painting my nails I'm craving even more new polishes.
I'm dying to test out Deborah Lippmann's polish set in Pretty in Pink. It has all of my favorite shades in mini sizes!

So for the month of April I made it a goal to read one book (which I guess, if you count the book we're reading in my reading class at school-I've already accomplished that goal!).
But the one that I'm currently reading for myself is about 1/4 gone. Here's a hint to what I'm reading!


I've been on a house plan hunting rampage the last few days. We're not planning on building a new house for several more years (gotta save that $$$) but I found one that I love, now I just have to talk Chris into it!
Follow along on this board to see what I'm looking for in a house!

This week Dana posted a very important reminder on her blog-it's something that all of you sun-loving beauties should go check out!

I just got sent this product, so I'm going to be testing it out (along with a ton of other products I bought from the recent Ulta sale!) and letting y'all know how I liked it/if it worked in a new skincare post, be on the lookout for that!

Have y'all seen the collaboration between Draper James & Jack Rogers?! They have the cutest patterns and even some adorable ones that say "Hello Darlin'" which I'm dying to have!

I normally try really hard not to buy super high end makeup, because usually I can find products that are just as good at the drugstore. But so many people are raving about this lipstick and the color seems perfect for this time of year.
Should I take the leap?!


 Last Friday I had to run some errands for my husband, including stopping by the office for our trucking company.
I couldn't help but stop to admire these gorgeous flowers growing beside the porch, and of course taking a shot of my favorite sandals right now (I just wish you could see more than just the fringe of the cute top I was wearing!)

Well, that's all for this Ten on Tuesday!
Let me know down below what you're up to on this fine weekday :)

Until next time. . .



  1. I also tend to stick to drugstore makeup--if the cheaper stuff can still make me look pretty, it's good enough for me! :P Those flowers are gorgeous! I love all the spring flowers blooming during this season!

  2. Love your Easter decor and Dana's reminder.

  3. Love this currently happening list. I need to get some new nail polish in fun spring colors. My nails are due for a home mani/pedi!
