Things we like Friday: Undy Sunday

August 15, 2014

Undy sunday 2014

The Charleston RiverDogs play at home this Sunday. As incentive to come out to the stadium, Goodwill will trade an unopened package of undies for a free ticket.

The undies will benefit the 6th Annual Undy 500 motorcycle ride for veterans in the Charleston region.

You cannot beat helping veterans while watching a free game of baseball.

Blog Feature

August 14, 2014

I started reading this blog simply because I loved the pictures. When I read the “About Me” section I was hooked. Here’s the line that got me: I have experimented with different trends and have loved adding my twist to each and every one.

I don’t love every she does, but I do love that she wears it well.

DIY: Creating the coffee shop smell

August 13, 2014

It’s pretty simple to create a great coffee smell without making any coffee.

Here are the steps:

Place a candle in a vase. I recommend using vanilla or a flavor you like.
Fill around the candle with whole coffee beans. They can just be the cheap ones.
When you burn the candle, it will heat up the beans and fill the room with an amazing smell!

5 useful thrift

If you ever wanted to shop Goodwill from the comfort of your computer, you can. Shopgoodwill.com is the first online auction site created, owned and operated by a nonprofit organization. It was created and is operated by Goodwill of Orange County. It’s basically all the best bargains online, at your finger tips. Get bidding!

This site breaks down some pretty awesome tips on getting the best deals while thrifting. I found the tips pretty darn useful.

It’s a little DIY with a little bit of personality. This site is great if you’re looking for inspiration for the home.

You’ve seen some of these guys’ posts on my blog. They do a little bit of everything. They have great ideas for home décor, and they try new recipes. One of the writers is planning a wedding and takes you step by step through the process. They are fun, honest and a great read.

I love this site.  The woman is an absolute genius with a sewing machine. She does a ton of before and after pictures, plus she shows you exactly how to turn an old frumpy dress into a hot little number. Some of her creations don’t even require sewing.

Monday Find

August 11, 2014

Maybe it’s because I love coffee. Maybe it’s because I’m a “southern” speller, and I like to spell words how they sound. Or it could just be the shape of this silly little mug. Whatever it is, I want a whole collection of this week’s Monday find.

Blog feature

August 7, 2014

There are some big changes we should expect to see in blogging. Think about it. I love Instagram. I could spend hours looking at Pintrest. Plus, in marketing circles, videos are taking over.

That leads me to believe the way we blog is changing too.  I like it. I think it means less words (think twitter) and more pictures (think Pintrest). What’s not to love?
