Most Friday nights you can count on these two things happening: there will be wine in my hand and a Lifetime movie on the television. But since it’s Oscar weekend, I thought maybe I’d step it up a notch and put together an actual movie night spread. So, I teamed up with Toffifay to put my own spin on movie night inspiration for today’s Friday Favorites’ post! This was so fun because not only did I completely surprise myself with how well it came together, but now I’m thinking that I should do this sort of thing more often!
It literally took me no time at all to whip up everything you’ll see in today’s photos, and I’ve got some tips for how you can pull it off in your own home too. (Even if you don’t have a little helper like Odie.) Key Takeaway: I have basically learned that everyone’s weekend plans should include chocolate, wine and popcorn…

I’m currently working on a comprehensive New Orleans travel guide post, but my recommendations are getting quite extensive! And while I’m not a “local,” I’ve made my fair share of visits to The Big Easy, and I do have my “favorites” that I definitely want to provide a little bit more information on in today’s post! This list is for people who are past doing the touristy things like Bourbon Street and VooDoo tours – although I do suggest you do those things at least once!
This is nowhere near all of the places that I love in Nola, but I wanted to start by giving you the ones that hold a special place in my heart. Even I still have so many more bucket list places to hit up, so I’d love to hear what your New Orleans favorites are too!

Perhaps the prettiest spring crossbody details I’ve ever seen! Individual pearls sit inside each floral appliqué on this ZAC Zac Posen bag.
Wine Down For Awards Season
Hollywood’s biggest nights just wouldn’t be right without a big glass of wine while watching the red carpet gown coverage! Got my bottles of Francis FordCoppola Wines – these are the exact Directors Cut wines that they will be serving for the Academy Awards – so fancy huh?
I’m also going to be planning a fun Oscars party (my first of this type ever) and I’ve got popcorn and Piper-Heidsieck champagne ready. Photos to come soon!
Happy weekend you guys! We have a few fun things planned like a Mardi Gras parade party AND our first crawfish boil of the year at our house tomorrow!! As always, I’ll be snapping along and posting to IG Stories when I remember to! 😉
I’m excited to be starting the week off with a little travel inspiration for your spring trips! But, I have to tell you a secret because I can’t take all of the credit. When it came to planning the perfect Charleston girls’ trip itinerary, I had a little help! Jennifer Stuart of Explorateur Travel helped me put together the best itinerary for our time in Charleston and made sure that everything ran as smoothly as possible! From giving restaurant suggestions, walking tour options and our afternoon bakery stops, we were actually able to enjoy our trip instead of wasting a second wondering what to do next!
I’ve found that one of the biggest time sucks when we travel is trying to figure out where to eat on the spot. We also spend a a lot of time looking up the correct addresses to put into Uber or Google Maps. Jennifer sent us this amazing trip itinerary that synced with our iPhones so that we were able to quickly see our day in one glance. We could also click right onto specific addresses that were already included in the document. Lifesaver you guys! If you are interested in getting help planning your next spring vacay, let Jennifer help you – here’s her website: Explorateur Travel!

As I’ve mentioned here and there, I’ve started a new exercise schedule for myself this year, but I haven’t exactly mentioned WHAT it is. With one month down, I’m already starting to see and feel the difference in myself, and it’s from my TreadBR membership! Tread is a combination of interval treadmill workouts mixed with strength and core training.
I wanted to try Tread because a. I’ve had friends rave about it and b. I needed something that worked with my ever-changing schedule. With one full month down, I love that I’m never bored (the classes are different every day) and that I’ve been able to develop a more disciplined schedule for myself. See my post on how I’m making time to workout here.
I’m excited to team up with my new TreadBR family on a giveaway for not just one but TWO people! We really wanted to give away an unlimited month TreadBR membership (a $250 value) but also realize that not everyone lives in Baton Rouge to win. SO we’ve added in a second winner who will recieve activewear set from Tread’s monthly activewear capsule. Each month pre-selected activewear pieces go up on the TreadBR website that can be mixed and matched together! This month’s brands include Koral, Blanc Noir and Vimmia.
To enter to win, keep your eye out tonight for the giveaway post to go up on Instagram tonight at 8 pm CST!
