Everyday Jewelry With Marco Bicego

Hi All,
I'm so excited to be sharing this bracelet with you today!
 I remember when I was younger my mom had a beautiful gold necklace with her initial on it and she would wear it all of the time. When I got older she let me have the necklace and it became an everyday piece for me. This necklace is well over 30 years old now and looks as if I just bought it, yet it was my Moms and now mine. I want to at this point in my life, start building a collection of jewelry that I can pass on to my future daughter. The older I get, the more I see the importance of investing in quality jewelry pieces. These pieces will truly stand the test of time. This is why I am so excited to share with you this beautiful Marco Bicego Marrakech Bracelet, available at Perrywinkles Fine Jewelry. The second I picked up the Marrakech Bracelet I knew it would be an everyday piece for me. I love the beautiful rose gold and how "soft" it looks, even Kyle complimented it! 
There are so many gorgeous Marco Bicego pieces that I now have my eye on to add to my jewelry box! I really encourage you to invest in pieces you will wear forever, like this bracelet, or an initial necklace. It will be the best feeling in the world when you can pass those pieces on to your daughter, I know how much I cherish the pieces passed down from my Mom.

Best Place To Stay In Nashville


Hi All!
Kyle and I got back from Nashville this week and had the best time. We stayed at the CUTEST Airbnb. So cute in fact that I had to put a post together to share it with you!

If you're familiar with Nashville at all this cute carriage house is located in the 12 South area. We were able to walk to my favorite restaurant (Bar Taco) in under 10 minutes and the best shopping area. We were in Nashville last year as well and stayed closer to downtown/broadway and I have to say this location is SO much better! It was a quick walk to town and only a 10-15 minute drive to anywhere else we wanted to go including the main strip. 

Now onto this carriage house. This exceeded all of my expectations. I'm of course into very "cute" and "trendy" things and this house did not disappoint.  Kyle and I loved the outdoor fireplace and sat out there having drinks and watching movies a few nights. The whole vibe of this house was perfect, I especially loved the blue kitchen cabinets, the kitchen also had a Nespresso machine! My fave!

Staying in Nashville can be pretty pricey but we felt this home was reasonably priced. There are two options for renting this home. You can rent the entire place which provides more sleeping areas and a living room or you can rent the bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, and patio. Either way, you have the home completely to yourself, with the second option the other rooms are just closed off. 

Our favorite spot at the house
After seeing the bathroom I was ready to move in! How pretty are these floors!?
This was the comfiest bed ever, also loving the bed side lights. 
 How cute is this kitchen!? I want this faucet in my own home! 

 If you're headed to Nashville I highly recommend this house. It will not disappoint! I hope you've enjoyed.
XO,
Nicholle

How To Grow Sprouts

Hi All!
Recently I've been loving sprouts on my salads and sandwiches. I enjoy gardening and thought I might try growing my own sprouts & it turned out to be so easy! Today I'm going to share with you how you can grow your own sprouts with a few easy household materials. 

Materials //
* Water! 

Step 1 //
Place seeds in a mason jar, cover with the cheesecloth and secure the lid. Rinse the seeds 3 or 4 times and then fill the jar so the seeds are covered with water. Let the seeds soak overnight. 
Step 2 //
Drain seeds and rinse them. Continue to rinse seeds every morning and night in cold water. 
Step 3 // 
After 2 or so days you will notice the seeds beginning to sprout- continue to rinse them twice a day until they are at your desired length. In general, it takes about a week to grow them to a good length
Step 4 // 
Rinse a final time and store in a container that allows for air flow. I store mine in the fridge. 

My favorite sprouts are alfalfa (pictured above), I also love sprouting lentils. I generally purchase the seeds at our local gardening store. I recommend always thoroughly washing your seeds to ensure there is nothing on them before sprouting them. 

Let me know if you try to grow your own!
