This weekend was a gorgeous taste of spring in North Carolina. This is the time where I stop checking the weather forecast with my fingers crossed for a little snow icon and temps below 32 degrees to when I check for sun and 70s.
I woke up Saturday and went for a long run and then headed to visit a friend and her new baby. Saturday night, our plans got a little changed up, so we decided to try Driftwood Kitchen, a new to us restaurant, in Lafayette Village in Raleigh. The restaurant was such a cool, rustic spot, the food was delicious, and Lafayette Village is absolutely adorable.
Lafayette Village with its cute market lights and Ella Fitzgerald playing through the walkways was just perfect.
Also on Saturday, I was surprised with a package of goodies from Klen Shop in Raleigh. I love all the champagne themed items. Klen is a hand-poured, small batch shop locally made by two mamas who were looking to get rid of harsh chemicals in their lives. I have been trying to do the same with my skincare, which is why I started using BeautyCounter. I immediately tried every product Klen gave me and I am sold! Check out their awesome selection here.
I met up with Em and took outfit pictures on Sunday. It was such a gorgeous day for it and I was able to preview spring outfits, but man was I exhausted when I got home. I made sure that I had my La Croix with me while I was shooting for a little extra pick-me-up. What’s your favorite La Croix flavor?
P.S. I’m wearing Smith & Cult Stockholm Syndrome on my nails.
How was your weekend? Link up and tell Biana and me all about it!
