It’s hard to believe that after years of traveling together, Jenn (Haute Off the Rack) and I had never hopped in the car for a road trip! We decided spring was the perfect time for us to head to 30A, and we started planning our first adventure on the road. Normally for trips to the beach, I’m in the car with Jordan – and that’s a whole different dynamic. Talk radio, country music, limited bathroom breaks. Needless to say, I was excited for a girls-only beach escape, and I started rounding up some road trip essentials perfect for our beach getaway!
In between Jenn’s incessant Disney musical performances and many rest top breaks, we also had a list of podcasts to listen to as well as snacks. I think Lainey, our photographer, might have wanted to throw herself out of the car a few times. I was in charge of snacks and treats, and I had packed away a few bags of Werther’s Cocoa Crémes – new flavor alert! (And these are not the Werther’s you remember from your grandparent’s house. These are chewy caramels filled with the most delicious chocolate filling. Talking more about them + about a fun giveaway below.)

Once it’s officially spring, we tend to kick our bikini body fitness routine into overdrive. (Juice cleanse, treadmill workouts. Let’s kick it up a notch.) What if I told you that there’s a new product that is dedicated to speeding up the process? Heck yes! Enter Clarins Body Fit – a cellulite contouring cream formula that helps visibly reduce cellulite. Clarins is challenging me to test out their newest product to see if I can get firmer, toner looking skin just right in time for my next beach vacay!
Consider this product the extra step in your fitness routine that you never knew you needed. And after taking a few weeks off from my regular Tread BR classes due to travel, I’m definitely ready for a new jumpstart! I’ve already started using it, and it smells SO good you guys. I apply after dry brushing, and it’s almost like a luxurious spa appointment at home. Here’s one of those #treatyoself kind of moments while banishing cellulite – I think we can all get on board with that!
Have you guys tried any sort of home treatments for cellulite contouring or skin firmness? Would love to hear what you guys think. And of course, I’ll be sure to share some updates and results to this post later!

When it comes to earrings, I’ve always been a “go big or go home” type of gal. I love to rock a good statement earring which is why I LOVE Lisi Lerch. She’s a girl after my own heart with these beauties. I’m stocking up on her beaded earrings for spring to compliment all of my off-the-shoulder tops! Shop some of my faves below:
I came home the other day with the prettiest bouquet of flowers on the doorstep. (And one confused husband because the flowers were not from him, haha!) FTD Flowers was celebrating International Women’s Day and sent out these gorgeous blooms to help spread the word about their support of this special day. Fresh flowers are my favorite!
My obsession with chapstick and lip balm continues! Chapstick has introduced their newest product Chapstick DUO – which means I can carry around not only one but TWO chapsticks in one. You can snap together different combos, and I’m especially loving the Tropical Pineapple and Fresh Coconut. Makes me feel like all I’m missing is the beach and a suntan!
I’ve posted about my love for Aveda products in past Friday Favorites posts (ICYMI see this post + this post). I’ve even given them for Christmas gifts – my mom loves this Aveda hand cream! Now I’m talking about a few of their overnight skincare products that help you achieve wedding day skin – every day! The Tulasara Wedding Masque is used overnight to help assist the skin’s natural repair processes that happen at night. Also comes in an overnight eye cream too!
(Meant to post these last week!) Mardi Gras might be over, but there were a few treats for us to enjoy afterwards! Maggie Louise Confections always has THE cutest chocolate gift boxes. And not only are they amazing looking, they taste even better – so delish. Can’t wait to see what they come up with this year for Easter – last year they had golden miniature eggs!
Who else has been crazing some serious beach time lately? I have been looking forward to this week for about a month now because I knew that I’d be reunited with the sand and sunshine. If you’ve been following along with @apinchoflovely on Instagram, you’ve already seem some of our 30A beach road trip. BUT I wanted to share more of my beach trip essentials with you guys – because there are SO many cute pieces.
From floppy hats, pom pom details and tassel earrings, I’m currently craving all the spring new arrivals! I’ve gone through three of my favorite shopping sites to come up with a comprehensive Wednesday Wants list to cure your wanderlust. See below to see the items I’ve packed for the beach this week + more that I have my eye on!

Happy Friday you guys! (This week has been a long one geesh.) I’m particularly excited for this weekend for multiple reasons. We are rounding out Jordan’s birthday festivities with a fancy dinner tonight and crawfish tomorrow. (YAY food, before my juice cleanse on Monday.) AND tomorrow afternoon I’m helping host an event featuring the Eileen Fisher spring collection! The fun starts at 1 pm in Dillard’s at the Mall of Louisiana in Baton Rouge. There will be light bites and refreshments followed by a spring fashion show. The show will feature 18-24 looks with an insider look at how to wear the collection!
I’d love for you guys to come join me if you can! To RSVP, call 225.761.7293 ext. 5120.
The top I’m wearing in today’s post is from the Eileen Fisher spring collection and just perfect for the weekend! It’s a combination of a tunic + a tee which I especially love. It’s long enough to wear with comfy leggings and sneaks for errands and super cute worn with jeans too! I wore this outfit for lunch with my photog Jordan (not husband Jordan) downtown, and we had to take advantage of taking some photos in from of the AMAZING azaleas blooming right now in Baton Rouge.
