IMG_4500

The Birmingham Home and Garden Show 2014 was four days jammed pack with celebrity guests, food tastings, inspiring outdoor displays, local vendors, and MORE! Can you believe it? All of that fabulousness in downtown Birmingham at the BJCC [Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex]!

I attended the Birmingham Home and Garden Show on Saturday, February 15, and I was amazed at the turn out! There were so many people chatting with local vendors, sampling food at the Western Supermarket pavilion, and snapping iPhone pictures of the awesome yard inspiration.

Weekly Whistle: Grand Haul December with The Outlet Shops of Grand River

IMG_8056

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome to this week’s Weekly Whistle which is all about my last Grand Haul clothing haul with the Outlet Shops of Grand River! My theme for this month was gearing up my wardrobe for winter without breaking my monthly fashionista budget. I went in looking for a warm coat, a fun sweater for layering, and a little Christmas gift for myself. Did I accomplish all of my goals? Did I get more than what was on my list without breaking the bank? Watch the video below to find out *wink*

Which piece from the December clothing haul is YOUR favorite? Let the VIP know by voting with the poll below–I will announce the winner later:)

Oh, and I almost forgot to tell y’all which color Fiat won the poll from last week’s Weekly Whistle–it was the Verde Chiaro (aka Light Green); however, I still think my favorite is the Espresso….Ahhh decisions, decisions….

Stay Fabulous,

Santa Baby–VIP Style

IMG_7935

Dear Santa,

Hello again from Abby Hathorn! Usually, I compile a list of things I would like for Christmas…but this year I decided to modify one of my favorite Christmas songs for you. I would love to sing it for you; but, since I am not three, my off-key singing isn’t very cute anymore. So, without further chit chat, I present to you Santa Baby–VIP Style. I hope you enjoy it, Santa darling!

Santa baby, slip a surprise under the tree,
For me.
Been an awful good girl,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa baby, a Fiat 500 Pop too,
Brand new.
I’ll wait up for you dear,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all the fun I’ve missed,
Think of all the fellas that I haven’t kissed,
Next year I could be just as good,
If you’ll check off my Christmas list,

Santa baby, I wanna Fiat,
And really that’s not a lot,
Been an angel all year,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa honey, there’s one thing I really do need,
some Creed,
From Saks Fifth Avenue,
Santa honey, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a gift set,
And checks.
Sign your ‘X’ on the line,
Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight.

Come and trim my Christmas tree,
With anything bought at Tiffany’s,
I really do believe in you,
Let’s see if you believe in me,

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing,
Some bling.
For a new Fiat Pop,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight,
Hurry down the chimney tonight,
Hurry, tonight.

Since you are so busy traveling to shopping mall’s and the Bass Pro Shop in Leeds, Alabama to listen to little kids’ Christmas wishes and to take pictures with them, I decided to make getting the things on my Christmas list a little easier for you…So, here is all of the contact information for Fiat of Birmingham, Saks Fifth Avenue at The Summit, and Tiffany’s in Atlanta. :)
