The secret collections of the Museum of Natural History. Fascinating! 

Balanchine's Jewels is one of my very favorite ballets. I'm so envious of everyone in NYC who can see it now at the NYC Ballet!

I know I'm wayyy behind on this one, but I cannot get enough of watching lip sync battles. Melissa McCarthy's last song KILLED me.

I was so excited to see a shout out from Mackenzie on her 101 in 1001 update. Check out my list here. I only have 44 days to go and the race is on. Thanks for the love!

5 Items You Need in Your Closet from Liz. I'm thinking I need those flared jeans.

I picked up this guy from the Kate Spade Friends and Family sale last weekend. Can't wait for our trip to Toronto next weekend!!

We haven't started our registry yet, but I "need" this cheese board. Every time I go in Anthropologie, I have to visit it. (Tell me I'm not the only one!)

I've been pinning up a storm lately. Follow along with me this weekend.

inspired / gold leaf oyster shells

I have to admit I'm much better at pinning DIY projects than actually doing them. That said, I've been smitten with the idea of serving salt and pepper in oyster shells (bonus points if they're painted in a pretty metallic shade). So I recently swiped a few empty shells after drinks and oysters with a friend and have big plans for them. 

Anyone other easy DIY projects I should attempt? I think I'll do my first batch in copper (my favorite) or silver (to match my mercury glass vases).

wed / southern wedding southern belle

Although I wasn't born south of the Mason-Dixon, I grew up there and a few quintessentially Southern things have definitely rubbed off on me (namely monogramming everything, a love of tradition, and of course adding "ya'll" to my day to day speech). 

I absolutely adored "The Fabric of a Southern Belle" in V8 of Southern Weddings and I think it truly sums up the ideals and qualities of a Southern woman.

101 in 1001 / books to read

I'm so so so close to the end of my 101 in 1001 list and one goal I'm focusing on big time is reading 30 books. Here are some recent books that I really liked and recommend:

I have 5 more books to read before May 29th (when my list ends). I definitely want to read the sequel to Crazy Rich Asians, China Rich Girlfriend, but that leaves 4 more. Any suggestions for me?
