SB Note: We’re so happy to have Katherine Snell returning from maternity leave today! Welcome back, Katherine!
We have kissed summer goodbye and are welcoming fall with open arms! Here are our favorite FINDS for the month of September including some of our favorite fall things: football, fashion, and food!
Dash & Albert Throw
Snuggle up with one of these cozy blankets from one of out favorite rug companies, Dash & Albert. Available in the same colors and patterns as their famous rugs, these 100% cotton hand loomed blankets are a perfect option to throw over your favorite chair! Available at Peridot Buckhead and Peridot West. simplyperidot.com
Fall Football Entertaining
Football season is here, and Swoozies has everything you need to entertain even the biggest of fans! They have a large selection of entertaining items for all the big schools. www.swoozies.com
How adorable are these tiny plants from Willow Green? Their proper name is Coral Beads, but we think Pincushion is mighty appropriate. Would look fabulous as a grouping on an end table or along a windowsill. willowgreenllc.com
NaturAlmond Almond Butter
We knew we would love this locally made almond butter when we read the seriously short list of simple ingredients; just roasted almonds and sea salt. We have been dipping a spoon in, spreading it on our morning toast, and having it as an afternoon snack with carrots all summer long. And we must be on to something, because Oprah recently declared it her favorite almond butter. NaturAlmond can be found all over town including Whole Foods, Lucy’s Market, Savi Urban Market, and Oli + Ve.
Sesame Cashews from Trader Joe’s
We can not keep our hands away from these sesame cashews from Trader Joe’s. A perfect combination of sweet and salty, the bag is usually opened on the way home because they are just. so. good. www.traderjoes.com
Cotton T with Leather Sleeves
A perfect item for fall! This simple T-shirt from Hemline is made fashionably appropriate with a bit of leather. And, at only $39 it is the perfect price to indulge in a trend, but not break the bank. shophemline.com
Perfect Clutch for Fall
Okay, who are we kidding? This is not just the perfect clutch for fall, but for three other seasons as well! Great with jeans but fun with a dress as well. $172 and comes in a mustard yellow as well. This one will have people asking “Wherever did you get that?!” Pick up this great clutch locally at Kayce Hughes, located in Westside Provision District. www.kaycehughes.com
PRESS Delivery Dry Cleaning
With to-do lists miles long, we are always on the lookout for companies that can simplify our lives. Press Delivery Dry Cleanings does just that with free delivery of your freshly pressed and laundered clothes, bedding, and tablecloths. They also offer quick and secure online billing which we love for making the whole process even simpler. www.pressatlanta.com
Customized Jewelry from Kendra Scott
We all know (and love!) Kendra Scott Jewelry. And now you can customize your own pieces using their Color Bar. Just pick from their selection of earrings, necklaces, rings, and bracelets and then select your favorite stones to make it your own! www.kendrascott.com
Lady Like from Essie
Lady Like from Essie is one of my all time favorite polish colors. And others must like it too, because every time I wear it people ask me for the name. I popped into Sugarcoat last week and since I was in a hurry, I got their “express” manicure. I was in and out in under 30 minutes, with a fresh coat of Lady Like, and only spent $12 (plus tip!). We call that a deal! sugarcoatbeauty.com
The Bitter Southerner
The Bitter Southerner, a weekly web magazine featuring one story about the South, it’s culture and it’s people, is a must read every Tuesday. If you love Garden & Gun magazine, you will love this! bittersoutherner.com
The StyleBlueprint team takes a lot of photos, so we always want to know about tools and applications that will make our photos looks prettier and brighter. Recently, our social media guru Linda let us know about Pic Monkey, a website, and Snapseed, an app. We think they make photo editing easy (which usually isn’t the case!) and we love the results! www.picmonkey.com
Welcome, fall! We’re glad to see you!!
