Fall Fun

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. The days are still comfortable, but the nights are perfect for that cozy sweatshirt! Are you ready for Fall?

This personalized charger from The Preppy Polka Dot is perfect for those holiday gatherings. It says Happy Dall Y'all with your family's name. Perfect for a housewarming gift as well! $12.75

Add some fall cheer to your front yard with this garden flag from embroiderybyhannah.$23

Don't forget Halloween-it's one of my favorite holidays! Put a cute mat at the front door like this one from Pier 1. $29.95

A Personalized Car

I just got a new car-not by choice, but unfortunately, someone wanted to plow into my other one and total it. Which brings me to this post-I decided that I might want to add a personal touch to my car, and make it my own!

I would love to have a set of monogrammed mats. I think it would really add something special! I found this one (there are tons of other options) at Sassy Southern Gals Boutique-$75.

A cute monogrammed vinyl decal is always fun! I found these at the The Posh Shoppe's Etsy store. I would have a hard time deciding between these two! $7 Many more to choose from.

I don't have a place on my car to put one of these personalized license plates on it-though I wish I did. This would be the one I would choose, but if that's not your style, ColorandFriends Etsy shop has PLENTY to choose from! $16.99

Add These To Your Wish List!

I'll take one of these in every color, thank you! I have become a big fan of the infinity scarf-something so easy can add so much to your outfit. Oh, and throw a monogram on it? I'm in. Find this at The Girly Twirly Gift Company-$26.

This necklace is one of my favorites. I'm not a big jewelry wearer, but I do like small necklaces. This one is on my wishlist for my birthday! Find this and all kinds of great gifts at Three Hip Chicks-$39.

I have a new addiction to Simply Southern Tees. I found one at my local Hallmark store (the one with the crab on it), and I love it. This is the next one I'd like to get. You can find them here on etsy. Also, you can visit their website, here to find out where they're selling them in your area. $19.99

Made in North Carolina

This was a pretty genius idea-the solid sugar scrub. How many times have you fought with your exfoliator in the shower or bathtub? It can get messy my friends, but not anymore. Best of all, it's made right here in North Carolina. I like to keep things local-although I live in Raleigh, these are made in Lincolnton, NC, which happens to be where my hubby is from! Choose Lavender, Lemongrass or Peppermint, and get a cute jar with 10 sugar cubes for your bathing pleasure! Check it out at WhisperingWillowSoap. $20

Coming to you from beautiful Asheville, NC, is SeedandSky. They offer lovely art necklaces and earrings that would make great gifts! I love the Tree of Life necklace, but there are so many beautiful pieces, it would be hard to pick just one. The woodland creatures are adorable too! Go have a look and find the perfect gift. Tree of Life necklace in silver-$34.

Last but not least, from Cary, NC, hedoepaper has beautiful paper products. I like these personalized flat notecards with the hot air balloon. They also have notepads, invitations and more. Receive 12 flat notecards with coordinating envelopes for 19.50.

My Bag Wishlist

The Kindle/EReader sling bag from ElisaLou is perfect for toting! I need this as I take my Kindle everywhere. It fits in my purse, but it really should have it's own space-don't you think? $40

This makeup bag combines two of my favorite things-Chevron Patterns and the color lime! Madimaydesign offers this bag that you can customize. Choose from a canvas lining ($18.95) or a waterproof lining ($20.95) and choose your favorite zipper color!

I love weekender bags as I like to visit my mom for the weekend as often as I can. I don't need a huge bag, and a tote bag is too small. The weekender is perfect-especially this really cute Gray Polka Dot and Teal bag from SeptemberSkye. $58

Pretty Paper

Notecards make wonderful gifts-especially if they're personalized and preppy! I'm loving these Preppy Ladybug notecards from Preppy Princess in Green Retreat. Set of 12 cards $20.

Looking for something unique to send to someone for their special day? Take a look at Flying Wish Paper. I love this mini kit which includes:

15 sheets of Wish Paper - in RED.
5 Wish Platforms - the Birthday Birdy platform card looks just like the packaging...playful primary colors on a grey polka dot background. Each Wish Platform can be used three times.
Pencil – 1 little pencil in gold
Instructions – easy details and photos
Matches not included

Take your wish paper, write down your wish, light it and watch it fly. Very cool! (Obviously, children should always be supervised and let mom and dad handle the matches)

This notebook is so cute! Choose your favorite rain boot pattern and personalize it at Ink Spot Workshop. A 5x7 notebook is $19.50 and 8x10 is $23.
