Evening Tennis

Sunday, August 29, 2021

A few quick phone photos from us goofing off at evening tennis. We like to play sometimes after work, but this time I grabbed my antique tennis racket my grandma gave to me to get some pictures while we were there. My dress is from Reformation here and my shoes are New Balance.

 

Billie Razor Review

Wednesday, August 25, 2021

Happy Thursday guys! Today I wanted to share with you my thoughts on Billie, which you can find their products located here. To start with a little disclaimer, these are all my own opinions and I am not sponsored, nor have I worked with the brand professionally or represent them in any way. 

I have been purchasing Billie's razors for 2+ years now and just purchased their new limited edition color, so I thought I would take this opportunity and review them.

I started using Billie because I have never been super happy with razors I purchased at the drugstore. I found Billie through an Instagram ad (I think) and was intrigued. They are a subscription based service and cost around $9 a shipment and free shipping. You are able to customize how often you would like a shipment and change the day if needed. They send me 4 new razor blades every two months which has been just the right amount of time for me, but you can shorten or lengthen the time depending upon your preference.  

In terms of quality, these are some of the best razors I have ever used. I never get razor burn from them and I used to get it all the time on my knees, from other brands. I love the fun colors they offer and the site is extremely easy to use. 

They also have phenomenal customer service. I have had to contact them via email several times and they have always been able to resolve my issue. In terms of cancelling your subscription, this is easy to do as well. As my sister's Christmas gift each year I have been signing her up for a subscription for 6 months and then cancelling at the end of the 6 months. You do have to email them to cancel, but they have been extremely helpful and did not give me a hard time. 

With your first shipment they send you a little wall magnet with your razor that has a sort of 'puddy' on the back. It stays on the wall great and does not leave any residue or marks when you need to remove it.

The only downside I have had with them is they recently transitioned to smaller packaging that does not include tracking. This has caused mine to go missing in the mail, but the customer service has been awesome at sending a replacement if this happens. Because of that, I am overall still very happy with them.

 I hope this covers any questions you may have had. I love them and the quality of their product and would love to hear your thoughts below!

Coffee Date No. 3

Sunday, August 15, 2021


This photo is from a little while ago. We try to visit local restaurants once a week and this week we had gone to the Little Duck Diner. It is small, but one of my favorite restaurants in Savannah. I almost always get a cheeseburger and sometimes a milkshake.


Just admiring the evening in Savannah. The trees are one of my favorite parts of the city. 

If you follow me on Instgram, you may have already seen a couple photos from here, but we were able to attend a friend's wedding and it was absolutely beautiful. I love attending weddings, they are always so much fun with dancing and lots of laughter and new friends.


On our flight back from Colorado. It was such a fun trip, we hiked through tons of snow and ate at several small restaurants. I love visiting places that get 'real' snow since it is so different from Savannah.


Doing one of my at-home workouts. I had gotten some equipment at the beginning of the pandemic and have been pretty happy with the quality. Also recently got a haircut with curtain bangs. They have been pretty easy to style, so I may keep the look.


I found an artist on Etsy who I love. Purchased this and found a gold frame on Amazon. The frame is only ok on it, but it gets the job done.

Hope you guys enjoyed!

What Was My New Years Resolution?

Thursday, June 10, 2021


Well, we are 6 months into the year and I never shared what my New Year's resolution was, so I thought that would be fun to do now. Plus, how have I done with keeping up with my resolution? 

We live in a fast-fashion, hyperconsumerism world, and social media certainly doesn't help this. I wanted a New Year's resolution that would not only benefit me, but others as well. I decided that I was going to try to shop local and second-hand as much as possible. With the pandemic and all the problems it has caused small businesses, I thought this would be a worth-while goal even if it was inconvenient at times (such as groceries!) or could sometimes be more expensive. This just meant I would need to be conscious of quality over quantity, which was part of the point anyway. 

So how have I done so far? Really well, actually! My whole outfit above was purchased second-hand, just as an example. I needed a dress for a baby shower, and a clutch for a wedding, so I looked second-hand and fell in love with these pieces. The best places I have found to buy clothing and accessories are Poshmark, local thrift stores, and local boutiques. I typically search somewhere like Poshmark for brands that I know really well in terms of sizing and quality, that way they are the most likely to be exactly what I want since I can't see them in person.

I have also had some luck with local groceries. My favorite grocery store closed, which I was pretty sad about since they had tons of locally made goods. Farmer's Markets have been a great way to still buy food locally as well as another grocer here in Savannah called Brighter Day.

I definitely recommend as many people try this as possible! It helps real people support themselves and their families as well as being a small way to contribute to your community.

Thanks for reading!
