Feature Friday: Worth the Wine

If we are being honest, wine was never my go-to beverage. They were too bitter, too sweet, or too dry for me to want to enjoy over dinner or watching a movie with my husband. But I loved tasting and trying different brands and types of wines. I would never turn down a glass when with friends too – especially when watching “The Bachelor.” Wine is essential for that show.

When my dear friend, Margaret Hodges, became a consultant for Scout and Cellar, I was immediately intrigued. Margaret knows her wine, and I know she wouldn’t partner with just any company. At the first opportunity available, I hosted a wine tasting at my home with Margaret. That tasting was one of the most enjoyable events. Great friends AND great wine. I was so impressed with each wine, and Margaret was wonderful in explaining the differences. Since then, I’ve preferred to enjoy Scout and Cellar wine over them all. I actually choose wine when I know I have my favorite – Fieldhouse Pinot Noir.

Scout and Cellar made its way to my Feature Friday because I recently discovered their Scout Sampler. It comes with four smaller bottles of their more popular wines. I love the resealable top and that I don’t have to open a whole bottle for myself. They also recently released Holiday Sets that are great gift options for your friends and loved ones.

I also wanted to mention the most important part about Scout and Cellar. They are a clean-crafted wine. If you want more insight on what this means, I strongly recommend reaching out to Margaret at @worththewine on Instagram. She is a great resource in learning more.

So cheers to Scout and Cellar and cheers to the weekend, y’all!

I am IN LOVE with 1) the current bracelet trend and 2) the bright color trend. Two of my favorite things combined in one! When a friend shared the @janeandjunecollection Instagram page, I knew I needed to add these bracelets to my jewelry collection.

These bracelets can be customized and have several solid-color options as well. I chose to go with my two boys names this round, but I like the bracelets with encouraging words too. They are elastic bracelets and completely filled with beads.

Go check out @janeandjunecollection today to add a little color to your life.

How We Wear Our Oliver & Otis


I love ALL of my Oliver & Otis tops and hats, but one of my favorites is their new “You’re one in a melon” shirt. I’m not sure if it’s because I have a melon of my own growing right now, or if I just love the colors, but it is one that always gets compliments when I am out and about. With their unique and custom-made designs, I always find myself wanting another shirt or hat every time I go to their website.

Not only do they have great items for women, they have a great selection for men too! My husband always loves wearing his “Keep it Reel” shirt when he can.

After my blog post about gift ideas for him, I definitely can’t leave out the ladies! There are so many routes to take when it comes to showing your love to your special someone. Here are some of my favorites when it comes to little gifts.

Shari’s Berries: I am a little biased on this one because strawberries are my favorite food. It is always a wonderful treat for me to get these, and you can have them delivered right to your special one too!

Pura Vida Bracelets: I’m a sucker for bracelets, and I really like to giving back when I can. Pura Vida bracelets are the best of both worlds. Not only does Pura Vida have great bracelets, they have bracelets that donate towards certain causes too – animal awareness, women’s causes, service/military, education, and more! It will also show her that you ARE paying attention to things she really cares about in life. 🙂

Kendra Scott: I will admit, and my husband can testify, that Kendra Scott steals my heart when it comes to accessories. You can usually find it on my birthday and Christmas list every year. Kendra Scott is extremely popular in right now for all ages too. They also have every size and color to fit your age and hairstyle. Not all of the jewelry is real stone, but it is cute, fun, and super trendy right now.

Jon Hart: If luggage or bags is something she likes, then Jon Hart is a safe win. They have everything for every budget. You can also customize the color and name on the product.

My all-time favorite piece is their clear Grande bag. It holds makeup perfectly, and also is TSA-approved for traveling.

The only catch to this one is that you might not have enough time to get it by Valentine’s Day if you order online. However, stores carry it as well. You might not get to put her name on the piece, but they have generic images as well.

Fujifilm Instax 8: I received this as a birthday gift last year, and it is so much fun! If you have a fun date planned, this would be the perfect gift to capture every moment of your amazing day. Don’t forget to purchase film too, or you will be running to the nearest Best Buy or Urban Outfitters to pick some up!

Friday Feature: Gift Ideas for Him

Valentine’s Day is around the corner.  Do you have the perfect gift for your loved one? Buying gifts for men can be pretty challenging. However, one of my favorite things is to be personal with my gifts. Here are some of my favorite things that may make be perfect your man too!

Qalo rings: My husband and I LOVE these bands. These are silicon rings that you wear instead of your nice wedding ring. My husband found these a few years ago when he learned he wasn’t allowed to wear his metal ring at work. I agreed with my husband that wearing a ring is not worth losing his finger, but he still wanted something to represent our marriage. This is when he found these amazing Qalo rings. He wears his Qalo ring every day at work, and I wear mine when exploring the outdoors or excercising. You can even personalize the inside of the band now too!

White Wing: I feel that White Wing offers the best accessories and luggage for men. One of my favorites is their travel cooler because it NEVER leaks! They have gift ideas for all price ranges too. It’s a great company and a great brand. Below is a photo of our cooler. It is a few years old, it’s been through a lot, and it still looks this great:

Titleist Golf Balls: My husband is an avid golfer, but sometimes golf gifts are over my gift budget. Titleist recently introduced their customized golf balls, for a fair price, and I think they are so fun! My husband’s golf balls are customized with the number 12, and his initials. No more ball marking for him!

Yeti Cups: If you live in Texas, you probably heard of Yeti or even have a few items of your own. Yeti is a cooler company that recently introduced rambler cups. These ramblers come in a few styles and sizes. They are great because they do not sweat, and they keep things hot or cold FOR-EV-ER. My husband and I use ours every day!

I hope these gift tips help you when finding that perfect something for your loved one. Happy shopping!
