Weekend Recap//Shoe Love

Is it Monday again already?!? Below is a brief recap of the weekend....

Friday evening I had dinner at SNOB (Slightly North of Broad). Here are few dishes that made their way to our table:

Cheese Plate

FYI, they have some of the best beef carpaccio. It's topped with a red wine Dijon vinaigrette, capers, pecorino Romano and served with a grilled baguette.

 The cream sauce that comes with the NY strip is delicious, and I'm sure it was figure friendly.
NY Strip with broccoli, portabella mushrooms, & caramelized onion cream

Geechie Boy Yellow Grits

Cauliflower Gratin


There was dessert too, but I forgot to take a picture due to the food coma setting in.

Unfortunately for me, Saturday was spent cleaning up my neglected space I call home. 
Saturday evening we had our company Christmas party at Cottage on the Creek.  We had quite the spread of food. There were tenderloin biscuits, French fries with pimento cheese, sweet & tangy shrimp, and Cajun chicken corn dogs for passed hors d'oeuvres. For dinner we had oysters, buttermilk fried chicken, lowcountry shrimp and grits, macaroni and cheese and salad. Needless to say, we didn't leave hungry. I didn't get a single photo that evening (I was not on my photo game this weekend) however, I do have a few pictures from the menu tasting.

I feel like all I've done is eat terribly these past few days.  So on Sunday I tried to burn off some of those calories by going Christmas shopping with my mom. We had a great day together and managed to finish up our lists.  We may have gotten sidetracked for a few several minutes in the shoe department but we left empty handed, which leads me to my next topic....

Since I was only "window shopping" for shoes I thought I would share some of my favorites that I came across in store and some that I've been eyeing online lately.

I tried on these Jessica Simpson Cinco Booties from Belk and loved them...too bad they didn't have my size.

These Randi Leather & Patent Ballet Flats from Saks Off 5th are my favorite! I have a pair and wear them to work all of the time. Even better, right now they are on sale and there is free shipping online with the code FREESHIP....score!

 These Charles Jourdan Color Block Y-Strap Pumps from Saks Off 5th are classy with a bit of sass.

I've been searching for some fun leopard print shoes. These  Ellen Tracy Smoking Slippers are gorgeous!

Just another beautiful pair of booties  Belle by Sigerson Morrison that I'm drooling over this season.

Last but not least, these Alani D'Orsay Flats from Banana Republic come in 3 perfect winter shades. They also have 40% off your online purchase with code BRMERRY40, but hurry it's only through tomorrow!

The shoe lust list could go on and on as they are my favorite fashion essentials to purchase and with that being said I leave you with this quote:



  1. I like you're thinking. Let's burn off some calories and shop! Those calories were worth gaining because all the food looks amazing!

    1. Exactly! Shopping counts as cardio right?!?
