Weekending Update

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.

Happy Monday my loves!  I hope everyone had a nice weekend celebrating with their loved ones or being spoiled accordingly.  My mother was up in New Jersey with my sister who is a momma of three.  My weekend was spent researching all the places we are going to frequent when we jet off to Greece!  I will have so many details for you because y’all know I am thorough.  Linking up with Biana and Meghan for their Weekending Update!


The weekend got started off with lots of work with this space of mine over here!  There are so many new projects in the works over here you will definitely have to stay tuned!  I got a new lens for my camera…..it was totally warranted I don’t want to miss a single picture over there.  I have been playing with it non stop since I got it.  Even shooting on manual mode exclusively, big time over here.


Picked up a few fab finds at Trader Joe’s like this gem.  Fabulous, highly recommend.  Side note it’s so hard to walk out of there without fresh flowers right?

We headed out to a friends birthday on Saturday night and blogger fail didn’t snap any pictures.  Guess you know that’s a great time then right?


There has also been a ton of work on the Pinterest page as of late.  Are you following me on Pinterest?  Lot’s of revamped boards definitely the time to check it!

I will leave you with more gorgeous Florida living sights.

  11. May 11, 2015 / 8:40 AM

    Ohhh, fun a new lens! I’m currently researching fancy pants cameras as I hope to get one for my birthday (not until October… Just want to make sure I’m getting a good one!) I’m so excited for your trip to Greece – we went to a Mediterranean restaurant last night and I thought about how you’ll be eating that well your whole trip. Yum!

  12. May 11, 2015 / 8:40 AM

    What lens did you buy? I’m thinking of a new one as well. We are going to Hawaii next month and I want to make sure I get great pictures. I’m going to check out your Pinterest board. Looks amazing!

  14. May 11, 2015 / 8:43 AM

    Framboise! I always forget about that, but it’s such a delicious treat! What lens did you get? I’m always lost at which lenses to purchase! Hope you have a great Monday! xo

  15. May 11, 2015 / 8:45 AM

    Um, how have I not been following you on pinterest??? That raspberry lambic is so good, haven’t had one of those in such a long time. Need to remedy that this week.

    Yay for a fun night out with friends, sometimes I think it’s better to not take any pics and just enjoy yourself! Will definitely check out your revamped Pinterest! :)

  17. May 11, 2015 / 9:19 AM

    I can’t WAIT to see photos from your trip! I’m totally jealous of your new lens. I really need to get on the research, myself. It’s time to buy a new one for our Nikon.

  18. May 11, 2015 / 9:24 AM

    I so love your pinterest!! You find the best pins. Keep practicing with your new lens, I cannot wait to see your pictures from Greece!! Happy Monday!!

  19. May 11, 2015 / 9:56 AM

    Your trip is going to be heavenly!! I’m so excited for you!
    That last picture is GORGEOUS! I could definitely be happy living in Florida, ha ha!

  20. May 11, 2015 / 11:13 AM

    Isn’t Florida one of the most beautiful places (at least here in the U.S.) to live? I feel that those of us who grew up in the north appreciate it so much more! And yes it’s impossible to walk out of Trader Joes without fresh flowers (and wine and cookie butter!).

  21. May 11, 2015 / 11:50 AM

    Having a cocktail with a beautiful sunset on the water is the perfect way to relax! I’ll have to check out that beer from TJ’s. It sounds really good!

  22. May 11, 2015 / 11:54 AM

    Love those Florida living photos! :-) I also 100% agree with you on Trader Joe’s and flowers. Every time I go in there I stop and look at all of the flowers. While I also try to remember what else I needed haha. They have awesome flowers though for a great price!! Like screw going to a florist, just go there!! Haha. Have a lovely day my friend! :-)

  23. May 11, 2015 / 12:10 PM

    Yay! What new camera lens did you get?! :) I just upgraded my camera last month and I’m having so much fun with it!

  24. May 11, 2015 / 12:44 PM

    Those flowers are gorgeous! Enjoy your new camera lens. No pictures is definitely a sign of a good time.

  25. May 11, 2015 / 2:09 PM

    That is one of my absolute favorite lambics!!!! It is my go to at World of Beer when I am not sure what I am in the mood for. I deleted a bunch of pins and random boards this weekend too! Hope you have a great week!

  26. May 11, 2015 / 2:14 PM

    GIVE ME that martini and sunset. How about I just come live with you… sound good?! Xoxo

  27. May 11, 2015 / 2:18 PM

    oooh i think we tried that drink when we went to Boston, so fancy! i love reorganising pinterest, so fun! have a great week girl xx

  28. May 11, 2015 / 2:46 PM

    I love that beer! And no, it’s not possible to get out of TJ’s without flowers. Or cookie butter. Sounds like your weekend was lovely! Have fun with your camera! =)

  29. May 11, 2015 / 3:11 PM

    New camera equipment is the best! Love getting new things! I can imagine that researching for Greece has to be so much fun! So many great things to see there!

  30. May 11, 2015 / 3:19 PM

    I really need to invest in a camera already! I took most of my vacation photos on my phone! I realize when I am not blogging regularly I take way less photos of my life!

  31. May 11, 2015 / 3:55 PM

    alwyas a good idea to revamp the pinterest boards – so smart!

  32. May 11, 2015 / 4:17 PM

    Ohh I love that lambic! And yay for productive weekends! I’m so excited for all the new projects you’ll be featuring on your blog!

    You should join my weekend snapshots link up! It happens every Monday! :)

    Try the Framboise with champagne!

  35. May 11, 2015 / 5:11 PM

    Yay for a new lens and lots of fun blogger projects! We had such a busy weekend but I totally forgot to take pictures, too – sometimes you just gotta enjoy the moment and not worry about it! :)

  36. May 11, 2015 / 6:32 PM

    I desperately need some time with my camera. I want to learn to shoot on manual so badly. I can’t wait to see all the awesomeoness in the works for your blog and your Greece trip! You are seriously a rockstar. xo

  37. May 11, 2015 / 7:36 PM

    Manual mode?! GO ON WITH YOUR BAD SELF!

  38. May 11, 2015 / 7:45 PM

    Oh how I wish we had a Trader Joes in Vancouver!!! That beer looks summer patio worthy :)

  39. May 11, 2015 / 8:17 PM

    Flowers are necessary! What a beautiful sunset!

  40. May 11, 2015 / 8:22 PM

    Framboise is one of my absolute favorite drinks! Bonus points if you can find it on top at a bar! ;-)

  41. May 11, 2015 / 9:56 PM

    A sunset like that is irresistible. :]

  42. May 11, 2015 / 10:18 PM

    I love this! And I love revamping pinterest boards, why is it so fun? Also I went to my first Barre class yesterday and thought of you <3

  43. May 11, 2015 / 10:45 PM

    The Lambic is one of my favorites. Try mixing it with some Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout for a delicious chocolate raspberry beer… yummmm

  44. May 11, 2015 / 11:19 PM

    I am such a sucker for fresh Trader Joe’s flowers too! They are so cheap and so lovely– and they really brighten up the house :D

  45. May 12, 2015 / 8:04 AM

    Aren’t Florida sunsets the BEST? And I’m a huge Trader Joe’s fan, too. Last week we went there for date night and picked up some wine and dessert.

  46. May 12, 2015 / 1:18 PM

    Props to you for going the all manual route with your camera! I could definitely use more practice but it is oh so easy to switch on the automatic settings. And I am loving your Pinterest! – Svetlana @ Life with a Side of Wine

    well that was weird. your feed and all of your posts just showed up on my reader all at once. i was wondering why nothing was appearing from you in a while since i know you post frequently.

    anyway – new lens!!!! i’ve been dying to get a 50mm for my camera but i don’t know if i can spend $300 on a single lens given how often i forget my camera at home or never bother to take pictures when i’m out but 50mm lenses produce amazing shots.

  48. May 13, 2015 / 12:23 PM

    Trader Joes is one of my favorite places, I can never walk out of there without flowers and a new bottle of wine! Xo, Stephanie
