For the past 90 days, 54% of my readers have been male. Como what? I have no CLUE why men read this nonsensical blog because I know NOTHING about men, but to all my fella readers, thank you for reading and I’m so honored to have you here.
To show my Southern gents some love, I am introducing a new monthly feature of SST titled Help a Fella Out. In this monthly column I will provide my testosterone-ridden homeslices with a budget-friendly suggestion for a gifts to give their estrogen counterparts. It has come to my attention that men need help with gift ideas for all the women in their life — wife, girlfriend, mother, boss, mailwoman — and they don’t want to spend a lot of money on these items. Don’t worry peeps — I got you. Every month I’ll give you some ideas to surprise and delight the layday of your choice.
You can use these suggestions for any occasion — birthdays, holidays, any ol’ days. Make the women in your life feel special — if mama ain’t happy, ain’t NOBODY happy.
This delectable necklace is the perfect statement piece for a woman’s summer wardrobe — pair it with anything from a white t-shirt to a black cocktail dress — it will get a lot of mileage and compliments. It’s also only $40, which is awesome for a piece of jewelry as beautiful as this. Boom. You are now man of the year.

Buy this for your woman. You will not regret it.
Happy Thirsty Thursday bitches.
SST’s Investment Piece of the Month for December is statement jewelry. Every woman needs one or two go-to pieces of jewelry that add impact to any look. The only problem is, more often times than not, statement jewelry is not cheap, but still absolutely worth the investment.
I am currently obsessed with one line in particular — Twine & Twig. This new Southern jewelry line has burst onto the style scene offering handmade jewelry crafted from eco-friendly materials found all over the world.
Creators Elizabeth White and Jacquelyn Buckner — also sisters! — designed the line of jewelry using inspiration from the North Carolina coast’s blend of neutrals, lending an organic look not found in jewelry anywhere else. Love something local AND exclusive…
I love the details of this collection, like the signature T imprinted at the bottom of each suede necklace strap. These pieces can go with anything too — something simple yet interesting to pair with a t-shirt and jeans to make the outfit special. I really want that big cowrie shell in the top right corner… Santa Wilson if you are reading this… Elizabeth and Jacquelyn carry four different styles of necklaces — Limited Luxe, Luxe, Tribe and Twine & Little Twig — for little kiddies! The children’s line is such a good idea — I always wanted to wear what my mom wore when I was little. Still do actually.Someone is having a really good hair day.
