Barware for Under $50

October 9, 2015

It’s Friday peeps, and I’m ready to get my happy hour on. Right now. Why is no one handing me a glass of rosé?

No really. 

I’m so ready for my Friday afternoon cocktail that I’m planning on how I would set up my bar if I wasn’t on another spending restriction (that Patagonia sale was a hit at the Jones household).


Barware for Under $50


one / two / three / four / five / six / seven

Very Hollywood regency meets cheap bar. What a magical combination. And that cocktail shaker is pure gold. I’ll be here all day folks, come get your cheap laughs here…

Any of these items would be just lovely arranged around some beautiful bottles of alcohol on your perfect barcart — I love the Bombay and Tangueray gin bottles because that add a little color, and give a great buzz. Remember my barcart here? It’s a safe assumption to make that the UNC-themed barcart didn’t last long.

Help a Fella Out — Gift for $32

March 4, 2015

It’s been a little bit since I’ve helped my fellas out on SST, so today I will change that. If there are any men still reading SST besides Wilson and my dad, I’m not sure why you are reading, but I am certainly glad you are here. And in the event that you’d like to shower that certain someone with a gift for $32, you’re in luck. I have just the thing for you.

Linen cocktail napkins are one of my favorite things, and these pineapple ones are no exception. One of my favorite Charleston haunts Open Door Shop carries them and they would make the perfect surcee. Maybe I will turn this into a surcee series…

Wanna know the best part? Open Door Shop is having a 20% off sale today online with the promo code SPRINGSALE. Holla. These napkins would be the perfect hostess gift, birthday present, or Happy Humpday gift. Go getcha some!

In other news, it is a glorious 70 degrees already in Savannah as I’m writing this and I have a major tingling of Spring Fever, which really means I am dying to pour myself a mimosa in a bikini. Don’t give me that look Wilson, you know you want to too. 

Who’s with me!?

Guest Post on Open Door Shop — Wedding Registry Must-Haves

June 19, 2014

Howdy! Today I’m guest posting on Open Door Shop’s blog about wedding registry must-haves. Having been through the white whirlwind known as a wedding, I’m offering up my advice on what to register for if you are a bride-to-be. If you aren’t familiar with the Open Door Shop, you are in for a real treat. Created by two bombshell brunettes, these friends have created a beautifully curated collection of home goods and gifts that are from all over and completely unique. Love me some #buylocal. Open Door Shop also has an awesome wedding registry option, which can be seen here.

Not a blushing bride? Head on over anyway to see what you should add to your kitchen equipment. As it is my wish for everyone to be like my idol, Ina Garten, you need to be properly equipped to do so and will need the necessities I recommend. Do as I say dammit. 

Here’s a sneak peek of what you will find over on the Open Door Shop blog today…
