This past Saturday we had plans to go to The Darling but silly us, they were on such a long wait they couldn't even tell us an estimated time when we would be seated. So we walked across the street and had drinks at 492 and split some small plates. I'm so glad we ended up there because every single thing we ordered was amazing! I liked that they served small plates because we were able to try a lot off the menu. I don't know about you but I am forever going to restaurants and wishing they had a sampler of everything, I'm so indecisive!

Afterwards we walked to Glazed, the doughnut shop our friends we were with own. I'm still eating no dairy so Allison surprised with me a vegan doughnut. If you're ever visiting Charleston, definitely make Glazed on the top of your list to visit!

I can't get enough of of the Beautycounter Color Pinch Cream Blusher in Caramel. I use it on my cheeks, eyelids, and lips. It's really the perfect shade of tan with a hint of apricot. I also think it's universally flattering and would look pretty on any skin tone. 

I've been loving these Acai packs for breakfast every morning. I usually make a smoothie and add peanut butter and chia seeds to mine. You can find them in the frozen section at Whole Foods or Earth Fare.

I've been drinking a cup of Dandelion Root Tea after dinner. It's supposed to detox your liver and kidneys and get rid of water weight, who doesn't want that! I add some honey to sweeten it up!

We started watching the show Roadies on Showtime. It's about the people who set up the stage every night for the Staton-House band. I really like it, it's so different since it takes a look at what goes on behind the scenes at concerts.

I'm not sure how I came across the blog Motherlucker but I'm so glad I did. 

Yael, the author, sums up what every new mom is thinking and tells it like it is. She has a great post on Sleep Training and I agree 100% with every single thing she says to do. It's why I think Oliver is a great sleeper now, because I let him figure it out on his own. One thing that always stuck hard with me whenever I wanted to go in and help Oliver go to sleep was, don't start any habits now that you won't want to do forever. 

Of course I gotta show my sweet boy. Love those baby blues.

  7. We are finally heading to Charleston so I am definitely adding Glazed to our list of spots to try! Motherlucker is pretty awesome, and I am a total example of why you shouldn't give in to your kid's sleep habits as a baby because they stick forever (I'm not sleeping alone until they are 18 at this rate!)
