Lately, I have been listening to A LOT of 80s music–Genesis, ZZ Top, Bryan Adams, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, Joan Jett and the list goes on and on. So, naturally, I have been in like a totally rad, neon pink, acid wash and Miami Vice mood *said in my best Valley Girl voice*
When the winter storm hit last week and dumped about 9 inches of snow, my photographer and I took the opportunity to take some awesome outfit photos for the blog. As I was pulling items for the photoshoot, I stumbled upon a pair of funky fine (vintage) Levi’s *cue ZZ Top’s Cheap Sunglasses* that I had TOTALLY forgotten about.
In my 80s state of mind, I embraced the crazy, yellow acid-wash denim and decided to create a wearable wildcard outfit for this week’s Weekly Whistle. In the word’s of my photographer, “Wow…well, Abby–it sure it bright.” *wink*
Now, without further ado, get your 80s groove thang on and check out this week’s Weekly Whistle + outfit details! Also, be sure to pay special, close attention to the fabulous handmade bracelets!

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to Beauty Tues.
Woo hoo! What better way to ring in February than with a new lip color?
For this month’s VIP lip color of the month, I went into Ulta looking for something a bit electric and eclectic. After sampling several colors and brands, I stumbled upon the most fabulous color from Butter London–“Primrose Hill Picnic”–Not only does this Butter London lipstick give kissy pouts a HUGE pop of color, but it is also Butter soft with a moisturizing, matte finish.
Although glossy lips are extremely popular, I am a huge fan of matte hues. I feel like they wear better for longer, which is so important with my crazy schedule! One application of matte lipstick can take me through the entire day without worrying about an ugly lip-shade fade *phew* One less thing to worry about *wink*
Needless to say, I am head-over-heels for matte lips, and I have fallen for “Primrose Hill Picnic” *wink* So, shall we take a closer look at why this snazzy hue was chosen to be the VIP lip color of the month for February? Well, of course, we should *wink*

AHH! Y’all will never believe what I found at EarthFare today while picking up some gluten-free pizza….A TINY CYPRESS CHRISTMAS TREE IN A BAG WITH COLORED LIGHTS AND ORNAMENTS! How darn fabulous and precious is that, right?! Coolest part is I will be able to plant this sweet little tree in my parents’ yard –after the holidays are over. Oh, I cannot wait :)
In addition to sharing my sweet little Charlie Brown Christmas tree with y’all, I am going to share the rest of my holiday decorating with y’all! Come on–let’s take a look :)
ALSO, the VIP’s sister-blog, Sweet Sorghum Living, is hosting a week-long blogging home tour about the decorations at Hathorn Hall. The first part of the tour was published today–check it out here!
Hello, fabulouses, and welcome to the 2014 J.CREW CHALLENGE! Ahh!
Can you believe it is finally here! Oh, it’s as exciting as Christmas morning. You know there are presents under the tree…you can see them…you can count how many…BUT you do not know what’s inside. Oh, decorating my apartment for Christmas is going to be so much fun! I think I want a navy blue tree with silver and gold decorations! Wouldn’t that be fab!
Okay–I am so sorry, y’all…I am quite distracted today. Perhaps three Pumpkin Spice Lattes were two cups too many *wink* Now, before I get distracted by something else, let’s take a look at the FIRST outfit of the 2014 J.Crew Challenge. Whoo hoo!
