The LOVE Nail

Nail Art is the new thing-down South we love anything that sparkles, which makes this trend so awesome and on par with all things Southern!  My new thing is what my GBF (Gay Boyfriend-every girl needs at least one!) refers to as my "Love Nail," I have been seen all summer with my sparkly love nail!  I especially love all Essie sparkles, my new fave is 'Stroke of Brilliance' along with my new accent color by Essie 'Jumpin Junkanoo'

Every Sweet Magnolia girl knows that nothing is more important than your friends and family!  Family is such an important part of our lives, they help mold us into the people we become.  I visited my grandparents today to celebrate my grandfather's 80th birthday-he is a true Southerner, a hard-working, family man who loves his land!  This grand ole house is always a welcoming sign-welcome to the plantation y'all!

Parisian Earrings

Who doesn't love a fabulous pair of earrings?  They absolutely can change an entire outfit or uplift your spirits!  How about a touch of parisian vintage earrings?  Perfect, I found the most fabulous pair in Charleston, SC "The Old South" if you will at a boutique on King Street, Lily Charleston.  They have a line called La Vie Parissiene that has old parisian molds they make new with Austrian crystals.  Every Sweet Magnolia should check out this chic vintage line of jewelry!

Welcome To The Sweet Magnolia Lifestyle Blog

Sweet Magnolia is all about the Southern lifestyle. From grits, sweet tea {a must}, southern slang, country lyrics, unique style and designers to the deep rooted history... we have it all!

The Sweet Magnolia girl is the quintessential mix of tradition and glamour. She still writes handwritten thank you notes like her mama taught her and sets the trend in fashion, never leaving the house without her Tory Burch and Tom Ford lipstick.
