We had the most magical evening at our Creative Collective mentor + mix event sharing all about "Business Basics." The Barn at Springhouse was the perfect venue for this event and I love how we were able to set up the small group sessions around palette tables throughout the barn and beautiful surrounding grounds. We had a lot of returning attendees from our first event and some new faces as well! Huge thanks to the venue and vendors, The Barn at Springhouse, Amendment 21 Event Bartending, Zachary Brady Designs, Kara Shepherd, Joe Dean Hinkle, and Crank & Boom Craft Ice Cream! Be sure to scroll through all our photos from the event below (all photos by On a Whim Photography).Read More
I'm always so excited to try out new local businesses in the Lexington area, but especially when one of my dear friends is one of the owners! Lexington's newest must-visit spot is Varnish Nail Shoppe, an chic and high end all-natural nail salon. They truly nailed every detail in this shop from the minimal, midcentury decor to the well-curated array of products and services. The service is top-notch and you really feel pampered every step of the way! One of my favorite parts of my manicure is when they mixed up a custom sugar hand scrub with my favorite scents right in front of me. I also really loved the selection of stylish polish colors that they had available AND they specialize in doing some super chic nail art too!Read More

We are so excited to be a part of the second volume of the Lexington edition of The Scout Guide. We attended a beautiful launch party at The Carrick House in downtown Lexington with amazing food from fellow Scout Guide member's, Lundy's Catering. It was so exciting to see our page in the guide for the first time as well all the other fabulous local businesses that are featured. You can grab a complimentary copy starting next week at our shop at Feather Your Nest Antiques and at many other local businesses around town! Thanks to the editor, Christina Jelesky, and photographer, Erica Lee Photography, for all their hard work on this beautiful publication! What do you think of our vintage bohemian glamping set up for our page? The photo shoot, complete with hair and makeup from Pink Lou Lou Design Studio, was so much fun! Don't forget to grab your own copy next time you are at the shop!
I'm wearing the Avenue Blanket Scarf ($24) from our shop- it's so cozy and there's so many different ways to wear it!
