Most everyone who knows me knows that I am a Summertime Girl. Long days, NO SCHOOL, afternoon swims and boiled peanuts all strike my fancy. Even my {our} wedding was all pink with not a hint of FALL. Brent, however, is just starting his favorite time of the year. College football, bonfires, Octoberfest beer, camping, and the countdown to 12.11 {the boys birthday is kind of a BIG DEAL}. And I guess like many other things, what he likes, I grow to like. His excitement for coffee on the porch on crisp mornings becomes my excitement too. We look forward to using our new {old} fireplaces in our new {old} house this FALL and all of our weeds dying off just a little. Who would have known that I would grow to LOVE this time of year? And my two favorite candles to burn this season that will make you feel like you're in a little cabin in the woods: Votivo Teak and Votivo Pondicherry/Sandalwood.

Been a while since you last had a facial? No problema! Sign up for a 15 minute express Vitamin C facial this Friday afternoon. Our Murad esthitician will be here at 12:00 answering all types of skincare questions, and will be giving the complimentary facials from 3 until 7pm. So what is the low down on Vitamin C and skincare? Vitamin C has been proven to strengthen and undo damage caused by environmental aggresors {ultraviolet rays, smoke, etc}, which causes premature aging {fine lines, hyperpigmentation, etc}. I know you have all heard me say it before, but living in the South, we are all getting way too much sun exposure {even though it looks like I haven't seen the light of day} and the results aren't pretty.

So bring your friend or husband {Brent will have beer for the men} and we will have you in and out looking fabulous! Call to schedule, 229.227.0079.

Hello New Lavish!

I have never been satisfied with my setup at Lavish and couldn't figure out how to display everything. It is such an art and I've had no training. Fortunately for me, Jackie Ellis, has moved back to her little home town with her big city experience and has helped me start fresh with my display. We've started with the front of the shop by making a little baby nook in my window. My other "platinum" piece of real estate {front round table} is displaying Match. I have finally given Match proper display. Just a glimpse {pics from my iphone} of the new lovely Lavish!
