spring fragrances.

Spring is in full force here in Georgia, and we could not be more excited (though we could definitely do without the pollen). The dawn of a new season always inspires us to switch up our fragrance, and this spring we are craving light, fresh scents. Here are some of our faves.

Kate Spade Twirl: J received a sample of this in her Birchbox and immediately fell in love. This scent is emblematic of the Kate Spade brand: cheerful, fun and flirty.

Tom Ford Neroli Portofino: We have both been wearing Tom For Black Orchid for YEARS, so it’s no surprise that we are obsessed with his latest, Neroli Portofino. One spritz and you’ll feel like you’re on the Italian Rivera.

Viktor & Rolf Flower Bomb: There’s something so fresh about this scent. Light and not-at-all over powering…just gorgeous. It’s similar to J’s old faithful, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle.

oriental. gourmand. floral.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh: Marc Jacobs knows fragrance (among other fabulous things); his various scents are always best-sellers. Eau So Fresh is totally spring-y and sweet.

exhilarating. bubbly. playful.

Sephora Fragrance Sampler: Look. Shopping for perfume is tough. Sephora has made the experience a little easier for us all! Here’s the drill:

1. Purchase the Beauty To Go Fragrance Sampler For Her from Sephora.

2. Sample Sephora’s most popular scents.

3. Choose a favorite.

4. Redeem a roller ball at no additional charge.

friday five.

Happy Friday, glitter girls!

We’ve had a crazy-busy week. Down in Statesboro, L finally launched the new website for her stores Social and Dish. Up in Atlanta, one of J’s restaurants was the filming location for the upcoming Anna Nicole Smith biopic on Lifetime. As our friend Mags says, “It’s an inspiring story.”

On that note, let’s get the weekend started! Here’s your Friday Five.

1. Nails. J and I are going goth this weekend. Halloween is almost here, we’re feeling spooky, and sometimes a nude nail just doesn’t cut it. Try Chanel Black Satin or Essie Blacks.

Black Nails

simple and sophisticated.

2. Saturday Skinnies. Dark-wash skinnies are fine for Fridays, but Saturday night calls for something more special. These reptile print skinnies from L’s new website are super comfy, with just the right amount of stretch. Pair them with a black or jewel-tone slouchy sweater and nude heels. Sssssssssexy.

Sabrina Snakeprint Skinny

sabrina skinny, $42, at shop social dish.

3. Sophisticated Comfort Food. Gah, how good does this pumpkin mac and cheese look?! L whipped up this recipe last night and wished she was able to send J a smell-o-gram. That. Good.

4. Georgia-Florida Game. Those you in the south are familiar with the annual University of Georgia v. University of Florida match-up, also known as “The World’s Largest Cocktail Party.” Neither of us is going to Jacksonville, but we’re definitely going to watch these two top teams duke it out on TV. No matter what game you’re watching on Saturday, be sure to make your tailgate nice and pretty with our tailgate tips.

UGA Girls

How adorbs is our friend Joelle (left) showing her UGA school spirit!?

5. Brunch. Now that it’s getting cooler (finally), we can actually handle eating outside. What sounds better than a lazy Sunday brunch al fresco? Check out Daily Candy‘s handy list of the best brunch spots in Atlanta. Live in a different zip-code? Try blogger Katherine Martinelli’s fantastic recipe for Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict and cook up your own feast at home.

Biscuits Bendedict

park’s edge (inman park) has $11 bottomless mimosas on saturdays and sundays. uh, sold.

What are y’all up to this weekend?

xo,

L + J

pack your bags.

Happy Monday, Glitter Girls!  J and I are running around today, getting ready for our trip. (Maybe you’ve heard about it?) Packing for a whole week has been a bit of a challenge. Here’s what we made room for in our suitcases…

L’s List:

Straw Fedora

necessary for the plane and the pool.

Matisse Coconuts Gaucho Boot

we’ll be on our feet all day, and these are SO comfy.

Leopard Print Denim Cut-Offs

slightly obsessed with these leopard print denim cut-offs.

ViX Angola Bikini

vix swimsuits are pricey, but the fit and the fabric are worth the money. we’re hoping we’ll have at least one afternoon to relax a little by the pool.

with super weird flight times and time changes, a sleep mask is a MUST.

J’s List:

glitter heels = vegas

we are *obsessed* with peplum right now. spice this up with some jewels and we’re vegas ready.

vintage chanel.

this chambray shirt will jazz up my MAGIC ensemble.

vegas is loud, y’all. and we will need SOME beauty sleep.

Clearly we’re taking more than this…but these are our highlights.  What are we missing?  What would y’all take if you were going with us?  Eeeeeeek, we’re leaving tomorrow!

xoxo
