YOU FOUND $100 – WHAT’S YOUR SPLURGE?!?

Happy Thursday PARISH Friends!

I hope everyone is having a great week so far!! Martha Ann, Rebecca, and  I have been holding down the fort at PARISH and AGID while Ashley and Jessica are finishing up their trip in Europe! They are currently in Wiltshire shopping around and we can only assume they are finding some fabulous treasures for both the shop and for some clients!! We hope that everyone is following along on Instagram and Facebook! You will not be disappointed that’s for sure!!

Today, we thought it would be fun to share how we would indulge our design obsessions at PARISH if we suddenly found a little extra cash…$100!!

Meagan

I would definitely buy art or design books! I  absolutely LOVE to collect books and I am a firm believer in that you can never own too many of them! They are the perfect addition to any coffee table, book shelf, night stand, etc… A few that have my eye right now….

Martha Ann

I would have to buy these fabulous Willow Wrapped Canisters for my kitchen! My husband and I have just moved back to Montgomery and are in the midst of unpacking and getting settled… these would be the perfect the addition to our kitchen to hold my various cooking ingredients!! Cooking is my absolute favorite hobby.. so naturally I would choose something for the kitchen! :)

Rebecca

I would choose a potted Preserved Boxwood because plants give life to any room and you always need a little green!! These are the best because there is no upkeep… and for those who don’t have a green thumb.. look no further!!

We hope yall enjoyed what we would splurge on if given the chance… now if I could only have a money tree in the back yard!!!!

If you didn’t get a chance to check out our last post…. don’t forget to mark those calendars on July 24th for our trunk show featuring Vintage Green Jewelry and Amanda Roberson Art!!

Until next time!

Cherio, Au Revoir, see you all when we return!

Hi PARISH friends!!

As everyone celebrates Independence Day, Ashley and I will be heading out on our European shopping adventure! We are so excited and wanted to share all of our fun plans with you!!

We will be landing in the beautiful city of Brussels, and from there will travel to Sussex, London, Wiltshire, Cotswolds, Lille, and Tongeren (just to name a few cities!) We have a couple of fabulous guides that will be translating and directing us to some shops along the way! Oh how I wish I had taken a French class in college… My high school Latin has yet to serve me any purpose! Maybe one day… :)

We will be scouring through flea markets, antique stores, and warehouses looking for the perfect pieces for our clients and for PARISH! Ashley and I will be instagram-ing pictures of our finds along the way!

We have lots of travel time and very long flights ahead of us, so today Ashley and I are sharing our favorite travel essentials!!

travel essentials

  1. Water! (No one likes a thirsty shopper…)
  2. Lip Balm (Rosebud Salve is one of our favorites!)
  3. Lilly Pulitzer Traveler Pant (Ladies, go buy these pants NOW! They are the best skinnies on earth… and called “the traveler” for a reason!)
  4. A great bag- I love a classic tote from Kate Spade…or Tory Burch… or Chanel. :)
  5. Comfortable black wedges- Jessica Simpson nailed it with these!
  6. Cute flats… for when those comfy wedges fail you. My favorite pair from Steve Madden is slim enough to fit in my purse!
  7. A Fab scarf! If you can rock an Hermes scarf, then by all means do- but a sleek polka dot will work for this girl!
  8. Granola bars- It is rare, if ever, that Ashley and I sit down for lunch…so snacks on the go are essential!
  9. Tylenol PM- obviously. We’re planning to get some good napping in on the plane. This might be Ashley’s first nap since the kiddos were born :)
  10. Books and Magazines- Rarely do we get a sec to kick back and read! We’re planning to read in between naps! :) I’m psyched to start Elizabeth Smart’s new book and sift through a pile of magazines!

Wish us luck and keep up with our European adventure by using #AFGIDdoesEurope! We will see you all very soon!
