In Living Color

There’s nothing like a stunning vignette and a clear blue sea to make us dream of the beach.

And when we dream of the beach, what else to we dream of? Why, beach reading, of course!

We can’t believe that Slightly South of Simple is releasing tomorrow officially. It will be on the shelves at your favorite local bookstores, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Target, on Amazon and wherever books are sold. 

 

These gorgeous images capture that perfect relaxed beach feel–the one I hope readers also get from Slightly South of Simple–perfectly. 

Pink and blue is a favorite, classic color combination, one that we were so excited to see on my new book cover!

 

The pictures really don’t do it justice. This is one of those books we’d buy just for the cover! (Even if I didn’t happen to write it…)

This cozy beach house room is just the kind of place we’d like to spend a pretty post-spring break afternoon.

Today we’re in Kinston, NC at a fabulous home, celebrating Slightly South of Simple and raising money for the local Lenoir County SPCA.

Even though there’s nothing we’d rather be doing than supporting a cause close to our hearts, this picture is awfully tempting…

If you’re looking ahead to your own beach reading…

This is your last day to pre-order Slightly South of Simple before it releases tomorrow!

What are the chances I would have worn a hot pink dress in my author photo? Maybe I was trying to conjure a pink-and-blue book cover!

Slightly South of Simple

Thank you, thank you to all of our wonderful, loyal Design Chic readers. We love seeing you every day, getting your emails and comments and hearing your thoughts. And I am especially grateful of all of your support of my writing career. You have all just rallied around me from the first day. I hope you love this one, the first book in the Peachtree Bluff Series, as much as I loved writing it! 

Reebonz Under the Tree!

Good morning, our chic and fabulous readers! We are so excited to tell you all about our new fabulous friends at Reebonz. (We’ll be partnering with them in a couple of months to give away a too-gorgeous-for-words Ferragamo bag, so check out the details on that below!) There are so many places on the web to shop for your favorite designer brands. But we are especially taken with ones like Reebonz that carry all our favorite brands but are small enough to have a well-curated shop.

But this company isn’t only about bags.

The shoes are unbelievable too! We think a Valentino running shoe might really help with those New Year’s Resolutions!

From flats that dazzle to bags that wow, we could have spent hours perusing their beautiful site. But, with all of the advanced search features Reebonz offers, we found what we were looking for in a flash–a bag for you, of course!

We wouldn’t mind any of these beauties showing up in our stockings this year.

This Saint Laurent tote is one of our favorite bags of the year. The shade is perfect for the holidays. Or maybe a pink Prada for Valentine’s Day? You really can’t go wrong!

Designer jewelry is also a shimmering part of Reebonz’s repertoire. It is too stunning!

It’s hard to choose a favorite, but, well, we did! This March (mark your calendar!) to celebrate the launch of my new novel, Slightly South of Simple, we will be hosting a series of beyond fabulous giveaways with some of our very favorite stores and brands, leading up to the grand prize: An all-expense paid trip for two to my Beaufort, NC launch party! This gorgeous Ferragamo Darina, which retails for $1750, is going to belong to one of you come spring!

We don’t want to part with it, so this is a testament, quite frankly, to how much we love you! We’ll remind you when the time comes. Until then, just pick out one of your favorite gifts from Reebonz, and they will package it up beautifully like this and it can be waiting under your tree on Christmas morning!
