Meet Ivy + J'adore Custom Pet Bed

The Story of Ivy

      Today, I am officially introducing a new addition to our family, a sweet cat named Ivy! Jake and I traveled over 4 hours to meet him at a breeder near Greenville, South Carolina. We initially planned to take home a female kitten, but after being introduced to Ivy, there was no kitten more perfect for us. He was incredibly lovable and had a fun personality. No other kitten was interested in being held by me except for Ivy, he loved the attention. Friends and families of ours told us that the kitten will choose us and that is exactly what happened. I guess that meant the pink colored cat carrier, and bejeweled pink collar had to be returned. Oh well! He certainly has become apart of the family and likes to be apart of everything we are doing. His curiosity can be quite entertaining to watch. If you have been watching my snapchat (@bowlinesandlace) then you know, Ivy is a fluff ball of love and sweetness. Ivy really loves his custom bed from J'adore, they make high quality pet beds with many different colors and prints to choose from. The comfort of his new bed makes nap time 10x more enjoyable now.

About the Company

     If you have a beloved pet then J 'adore custom pet beds will be the perfect gift for your cat or dog. These pet beds come in all different sizes, ranging from xx-small to xx-large as well as different styles. Ivy's particular bed is a "cuddle bed" but J'adore offers 5 other pet bed options. The quality of their beds is top of the line, durable and easily washable with pockets that unzip to maintain cleanliness. Check here for washing instructions and care information.
     J'adore has over 200 fabric options for your pet bed. My only issue with creating Ivy's bed was choosing the fabric patterns, with the vast selection, it was easy to become indecisive. Thankfully, the pet beds are reversible which allows one to choose several other patterns for a completely different look. J'adore allows one to have two beds in one essentially. Did I mention J'adore's products are HANDMADE IN THE USA, Kansas City to be exact! Support local businesses here in the USA.

Make up Monday: Nordstrom Beauty Travel Essentials

#NSale Beauty

The #NSale is still going on, but only for one more week! When searching through the beauty products still available, my cart instantly became full with discounted make up favorites. 

#NSale Beauty


Many beloved make up brands have been offering travel size versions of popular products. With another summer vacations nearing, these compact brushes and beautiful lipsticks will nicely fit in my carry on. The Anniversary Sale has 1 more week left before prices increase, therefore I wanted to shop the beauty products before the sale ended. Since I have been looking for a new collection of blushes and lip colors. The Nars blushes are simply beautiful and very complimentary on the skin. This cheek palette has 4 blushes, 1 highlight, and the Laguna bronzer. When you are traveling, make up palettes are the way to go for a lighter load without having to leave your favorite products at home. Lip products are tricky to buy without trying on, but believe these YSL lip products are my new favorites. Visit your nearest Nordstrom to test them out or if leave in the Charleston area without a store close by, try them out at Sephora. Nordstrom has a hassle-free return policy which makes for shopping online a more relaxing shopping experience. I know that if a product does not turn out the way my heart desired, I can return it with no issues.
The Laura Mercier make up palette, oh my goodness, beautiful! If you have blue eyes, this eye palette is going to make your eyes pop! Browns, and bronze shades are my go-to shadows for highlighting my eye color. Even if you do not have blue eyes, these shadows will become your daily essentials. The other great thing about this palette is that it comes with a highlight and bronzer which makes it another all-in-one perfect for traveling. You can use all these products mentioned with the Bobbi Brown brush collection with a bag to store them in. I love that these brushes comes with a makeup bag, because my makeup brushes are usually thrown in with my other makeup. Which ends up leaving makeup stains all over my other products.


A 1920's Charleston feature: Blush-Colored Pleated Skirt

It was a beautiful evening in Charleston, a change from the usual humid weather that summer months bring to the southern coastline. Which presented the perfect opportunity to wear a pleated maxi skirt paired with a high neck line top.
