The Nordstrom Sale 2020

This Sale is a favorite to many.  There are so many things to go through so I have tried to make it easier.  I pulled out things I think will be classic pieces you will keep for years. I also love the beauty tools.  Many of these things would make great Christmas presents. People who spend $$$$ with Nordstrom can shop now those with who have a Nodstrom Credit card can shop starting August 13th and it opens to the public August 19th. I really appreciate it when you shop my links.  I get a very small commision and it helps me do the leg work for you.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

10 Reasons why The Gulf Hills Hotel in Ocean Springs is a great safe getaway during COVID-19 or anytime!!!

If you have been following me for very long you know I love the Mississippi Gulf Coast and am a go to for all the hidden treasures it has to offer.  The world of travel has changed during this scary time of COVID-19.  I needed a safe get away and I sure found a good one.  The Gulf Hills Hotel is tucked away near the bay in Ocean Springs.  The most beatiful views are all around this vintage hotel.  It is kinda like going back to the resort vactions you see in the dirty dancing movie.  Here are my reasons I loved it so much.

Be sure to see the gallery below the list!

1. The Scenery

Grab a bottle of wine and a rocking chair because you will want to sit on the porch and soak it all in.

2. Walk straight from the car to the room

You won’t find any crowded elevators here or a long haul down a crowded hallway. This is perfect if you have someone older or handicapped.  I also love it for work because I have easy access to my car.  This is also so safe from COVID.

3. Huge pool

This pool gives a ton of room to social distance or splash around with the family. It is really well maintained and has a beautiful view of the bay. There is also a Tennis Court and Golf Course.

4. Several beautiful covered spaces with outdoor seating and dining areas.

To avoid the crowd downtown we did take out and brought it back to the hotel and dined outside.

5. Perfect for an extended stay

Several of the rooms actually havc a small kitchen.

6. The history is so interesting

Elvis actually kept a suite here. Marilyn Monroe, Jane Mansfield, Judy Garland and many more have actually stayed here.  The staff have so many entertaining stories.

7. It is a total Southern experience

This hotel is vintage and nostalgic.  The staff is so hospitable.  You feel like you are stepping back in time. 

8. It is such a quiet getaway

The party crowd is NOT here.  Most of the guests love it so much they come several times a year.

9. It is close to Downtown and the Beach

Downtown Ocean Springs and the Beach is only 5 minutes away.  The casinos are only 7 minutes away.  

10. Accomedations

Although this is an older hotel, they still have the modern comforts of free Wifi and a really good free continental breakfast.

Kor Teeth Whitening Procedure with Beau Murphey, DMD

I was so excited to collaborate with Dr. Murphey and recieve the Kor teeth whitening procedure.  I have fairly sensitive teeth so at home whitening is not a good option for me.  When I first arrived and met the staff I knew this was the kind of office I would feel right at home in and I was right.  I first went for a consultation and he made molds of my teeth.  These molds were for trays I would take home and use for 2 weeks before I went in for my final in office treatment.  The at home treatment was a 2 step process.  I would first apply a serum to prevent any sensitivity. Then I put the teeth whitening gel in the trays and slept in them for 2 weeks.  The gel tasted a bit like toothpaste. I kid you not, I noticed a difference after the first night.  After the 2 weeks of home treatments I went to the office for the final treatment. It took about 2 hrs but I left with glow in the dark white teeth. As you can see below, my results were incredible.  I will do a mantainence treatment once a month at home. I could not believe the result and no sensitivity! This treatment can help people who never thought they could have white teeth.

I enjoyed my experience with Dr. Murphey and his staff so much I am thinking about another cosmetic procedure he offers.  He does beautiful cosmetic dentistry including porcelain veneers and cosmetic braces. You should check out his Instagram page @doctormurphey for the other procedures and services he offers. I would highly recommend him. In fact his hygenist mentioned to me that he has patients who drive 2 hours or more to see him. I believe it.

The cost of this treatment is $1100 and he will give you 20% off if you mention me. He also offers no interest financing. I also wanted to mention he checked on me that night when I got home.  That is something you rarely see any more.  I am going to list his information below.  Give him a call or inbox him on Instagram.

Up Country Glamping and July 4th ideas

Memorial Day Weekend we had the most fun with the Grandkids by glamping in the backyard.  Up Country supplies the tent and other add ons.  They will set it up and take it down.  The tent is rain proof and has mattresses, lanterns, and battery operated fans for each camper. It is very confortable even for us Grandparents.  They will also decorate is to go with your theme. It was a total blast!! We made some really apecial memories for a lot less than a family weekend vacation.  The Grandmites participated in decorating and cooking.  I wanted to share some of these ideas for your July 4th celbration. I did the cooking with a 3 year old so the dishes are not perfect looking but a lot of heart went into them. Please let me know if you have any questions.

1.  Paint Red, White, and Blue Stars on your Yard

We used yard paint from Home Depot or Lowes. We just free handed it. My 6 and 8 year old grandmites did it with ease.  They.will last until you mow the yard twice.

2. Cover your Regular Sized Throw Pillows with Red and Blue Bandanas

Put a bandana on each side of the pillow and tie together with raffia.

3. Make your 7 Layer Mexican Dip look like an American Flag

Make as usual ending with sour cream and stipe with small tomatoes.  Make your stars with black olives. (see photo)

4. Pigs in a Blanket topped with Stars

Simply make the hot dog wrapped with cresent rolls. put a wooden skewers and top with a piec of block cheddar cut like a star.

5. Fruit Flavored Water with is layered Red, White, and Blue.

Put blue berries in th4e bottom of the container and top with ice.  Then add water. Top with sliced strawberries.

6. Striped Sugar Cookie Cake

Use the pre-made sugar cookie dough and press it onto a pizza pan and bake.  Let it cool and stripe it red, white, and blue.  Use rasberries or strawberries for the red, blue berries for the blue and icing or whipcream for the white.

Porchin…..

Our Porch is definately our HAPPY PLACE.  We have really been thankful for it during the this time at home.  It has been our dining room, movie theater, home office, and place of worship.  There are so many fun ways to warm up a porch.  Pillows, throws, rugs and artwork are the things that work for us.  I love to layer stripes, prints, and solids.  Anything goes out here for us.  We use heaters and fans so we can enjoy it year round.  I do change the decore for for fall, Christmas and winter.  We use string lights and candles to give it a romatic vibe at night.  Mosqito Authority sprays our porch and yard to keep the bugs away and I highly recomend them.  You can contact them by calling 601-951-9911.  Please let them know Lantz Foster sent you.  I have linked some inspiring items below to help you create your own Happy Place.  When you use my links I get a small commission for it so I really apprectiate it.  Please let me know if you have any questions.
