Weekly Review: New Orleans, Bargains, and Bloglovin’

this week I have enjoyed:

+ dreaming about visiting New Orleans, via Draper James city guide; maybe it’s the Southern in me, or just the romantic… but I want to hop on a plane with my beau and do some exploring in NOLA!
And if you haven’t heard of Draper James, it’s Reese Witherspoon’s new lifestyle brand- there are just some adorable things on the website! I love everything.

+ finding the sandals I had been scouring the internet for at Marshalls (of all places!  and on clearance, mind you) for $100 less than retail… and I was ready to order them online for full price!  I could have squealed with excitement right there in the store, seriously.

And speaking of bargains…  Here are a list of my favorite Memorial Day Weekend Sales to check out:

Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale– it’s a good one, don’t miss out!

Macy’s– an extra 20% off with code: HOORAY

Anthropologie– an extra 20% off on sale with code: GONEFISHING

+ talking about a healthy lunch spot here in the Valley- Saladman- on Trois Chic!

+ relaxing with a cup of tea and some sea salt dark chocolates in a hot bath- money.

+ realizing Bloglovin’ is like a Pinterest for blog posts!  I have had a bloglovin’ account for years, but just lately have I restarted using it.  If you don’t have an account, I highly suggest it!  The website makes reading all your favorite blogs extremely easy.  You can follow Newman’s Nest on Bloglovin’ here

+ listening to Spring rain storms- I would prefer sunshine, but since it has only rained  for less than an hour every day this past week, I’m happy with the gloomy weather!  And the after rain effects are pretty nice- just check out the rain drops on all of our blooms in the backyard! 


+ seeing this little guy!  We have strawberries, y’all! Woohoo!

Have a great [long] weekend!
