Ten on Tuesday [No.2]

Hey y'all!

Welcome back to another Ten on Tuesday-I'm so sorry I didn't have a post go up on Saturday! I intended on putting my finishing touches on it Friday afternoon, but we had a very busy day on Friday & left very early on Saturday so post Saturday!

I hope y'all all had a wonderful weekend, we surely did! And now I have the week off for Spring Break so I have that to look forward to :)

Let's jump into the Ten!


Number one has to be celebrating Chris' step-brother's wedding this weekend at the beautiful Ritz Carlton resort at Lake Oconee in Georgia.

Cody and his beautiful bride, Alex had a stunning wedding & we wish them the most happiness!

I wore this Adrianna Papell gown (on sale at Macy's) and it was so comfortable and I received so many compliments on it! I paired it these wedges (SO comfortable) and earrings similar to these.

Coming home on Sunday we only made one stop in Douglasville because I was so stoked to get home to this guy!
If you've been reading here long, you know I love Forrest, our labrador, so so much.
He was staying with my parents who take care of him like he's their own, but I still think he was really excited to see me ;)

When we stopped at the mall in Douglasville on our way home I visited the Bath & Body Works/White Barn store there. While I didn't buy any candles, I did fall in love with this scent...and this one smells good, I think? It's a confusing one! Let me know if you've tried that one out!

I've started a whole Pinterest board dedicated to our New Orleans trip this summer, so if you're going there you might want to check out what I've pinned...and if you have any suggestions for hotels to stay at, places to eat at, fun things to do...I'm interested in it all!

These 6 Easter Traditions You'll Only Find in the South had me nodding my head as I read the article...and I love the idea of a grown up Easter basket!

Speaking of Easter, I think I already have my Easter dress picked out (but after looking up a ton of dresses for a post idea...that might change) this one, this one, and this one are on my radar.

Now that I'm on Spring Break, I'm working on finishing up my current book and am looking for recommendations on what to pick up next...if you have any, leave them in the comments!

Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty is happening right now; here are a few picks for the next few days with their sale prices:

I already picked up these from an earlier day, but I really do have my eye on the Mario Badescu stuff (the whole line will be 25% off on April 1st) and I really need a spot treatment so I'm thinking of picking up the Proactiv one while it's only $10 on April 7th.

For a full list of all sale products and what days, check here.

I'm going to be real with you girls for a second, because since I've been posting more regularly I've gotten more questions about where I get products to test out and review.
One of the websites I use is Influenster and you absolutely do not have to be a blogger to use them and get free stuff. If you have any type of social media (twitter, Facebook, instagram, etc.) that's all you need.
I have gotten lots of things from them; makeup, hair care, food, drinks...basically everything.
The link is above, if you'd like to sign up-it's totally free and the only thing I get in return for you signing up with my link are "impact points" meaning that I have points showing how many people I can share products with.

It's a great program and I've found lots of new brands there that I never would've tried out on my own!

Number ten is actually part of my to-do list this week...but it's finally getting out my Easter/Spring decor!
I am so excited to pull out all of my bright spring colors and fresh scented's my favorite time of the year to decorate (although I think I say that for every season when it comes around!)

I hope y'all enjoyed another week of Ten on Tuesday!

Let me know down below your book suggestions & any suggestions you have for traveling to New Orleans if you've ever been :)

Until next time. . .

  14. I love your Ten on Tuesday series. You are fabulous! Thanks for the Influenster info. It's definitely something that I want to look into. Cheers!

  15. Love this! I'm actually just an hour away from New Orleans, so I've been there quite a few times haha! I have a blog post about it if you want to check it out (at, but I would highly recommend staying at the Marriot on Canal St. It's walking distance from the French Quarter and the Riverwalk, which makes it easy to get around. Also - everything in that area is going to be valet or pay for parking only. So while this Marriot is just slightly more expensive than a metered lot, you know you're car will be safe! If you plan on heading down Magazine St, definitely drive and park around each little area of shops. It's a really long walk otherwise. The zoo is also really fun!

    1. Thank you for your suggestions, I'm checking out your post now & will definitely be bookmarking it! You've seriously been so helpful :)

  16. The dress you wore to the wedding is so fab! I understand leaving a fur baby with grandparents and being so eager to see them!

  17. A great 10! I love Mario Badescu products - I didn't know Ulta was doing 21 days of beauty so I'm going to check it out ;)
