Jenn Bucket Bag:
We're all about a stylish yet simplistic lifestyle, so of course we're obsessed with the Jenn Bucket Bag from Gigi New York, in collaboration with Jennifer Palpallatoc, the author of the fashion lifestyle blog "Haute Off The Rack". Python leather and a cross body strap option give this classic bag a fresh, new look. Available in cream, deep navy, hunter, grey, and red, this bag can easily take you and all of your essentials from day to night in a snap.
Successful women know the importance of looking and feeling good even in the midst of a busy schedule. Our favorite t-shirts lend themselves perfectly to that ideal. Layer-friendly, neutral, and always on-trend, our favorites (Louisiana Pride, Sweet Baton Rouge™ Raglan, and Sweet & Southern™) can be thrown on with leggings or styled up with jeans and a flannel. Layering is a huge staple in our wardrobe. Whether you're spending the morning with mommy duties, in a meeting, or just having some me time, these baby-soft tees are spot on for whatever is on the agenda.
We love our coffee "a latte" so quite naturally we have a go-to shop for everything needed to jumpstart our mornings. A Baton Rouge original, Magpie Cafe serves up the most delicious and Instagram-worthy items guaranteed to ensure a fabulous day. From their perfectly balanced coffee drinks and melt-in-your-mouth scones, to their fresh lunch options and dinner bowls, it's the perfect place for anyone looking to shop local and eat fresh.
Who doesn't love Doing Good while Looking Good?! The One-for-one pioneers at Toms have done it again with their new line of fall/winter footwear. Our favorite? BLACK SUEDE WOMEN'S DESERT WEDGE HIGHS. The wedge high gives you all the style without sacrificing any of the comfort. They're casual enough for jeans during the day, but chic enough to pair with a swing dress at night. The icing on the cake: for every pair of Toms brand shoes purchased, a pair will be given to a child in need!
My favorite way to destress from the thing called life is at Yoglates. Did you know, I was an instructor there for four years. The three women that own these locations are the most incredible team. They empower me through their work in business and community. Yoglates is a combination of Calisthenics, Yoga, and Pilates. It consists of a series of movements derived from these different styles to give a complete cardiovascular, strength, stretching and balancing workout. These poses and movements are designed to work the lymphatic system as well as the internal organs of the body in combination with the skeletal and muscular structure of the entire physique. This is the BEST WORKOUT IN THE SEC. It's time to "train outside the box" and see why carpool moms, students, senior citizens and athletes from the collegiate to the professional levels are able to workout in the same room. Yoglates has two locations Yoglates 2 South and Yoglates II.
This hand poured candle by the artisans of Capri Blue will make you crave their scent every time. No other candle will ever do. The scent makes me so happy! If you haven't been given this candle yet by me, watch out... might be in your stocking this year! My favorite scent is Volcano in the Mercury Bowl: it has tropical fruits and sugared citrus as the scent. We found our favorite candle at this local store Two Blondes in Willow Grove.
