The Mint Julep Review + GIVEAWAY + What's In My Bag


Guys! I'm super duper excited about my brand new giveaway today! I'm giving one lucky Coffee and Cashmere reader a gift certificate to The Mint Julep!

The Mint Julep is an awesome online clothing store that has tons of amazing clothes. They offer dresses, tops, bottoms, shoes, maternity, jewelry, and PURSES. The latter being my weakness. I can't stress this enough: I love a great bag. I've shunned away from cheaper made purses as I've gotten older and usually only go for genuine leather. I know. PETA, animal lovers, whateves, sorry, not sorry.

So, when I saw this gorgeous suede leather bag, I knew she had to be mine. This is such a beautiful purse. The suede is very soft and makes the bag extremely slouchy for the perfect grab and go look. And the gold chain makes it both classic and edgy at the same time! The chain is pretty long, which is perfect if you'd like to wear this bag cross body. But I ran the chain back through one of the side hoops to make it a double chain shoulder bag. That way it makes it super comfy to carry.


And since all I carry with me at the moment is the biggest diaper bag ever, this purse is perfect for short outings. I can easily stuff one or two cloth diapers, a changing pad, wipes, and my wallet in it!


Okay, so, what's in my bag??

- Michael Kors changing pad (came with one of my diaper bags)

And now for the giveaway! One winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to pick out whatever their little heart desires over at The Mint Julep!

For your chance to win, just log into the Rafflecopter below (or make a new Rafflecopter account), and follow the directions for each entry. Please make sure to actually do what's required for each entry. If you just click enter and not do what it's asking, I'll know. If you are unsure how to do one, skip it and contact me. I go back and check to make sure the winner actually did what was required. I will not let cheaters win. DON'T CHEAT. Meh.

A great big THANK YOU to The Mint Julep for sending me such a chic purse and for teaming up with me on this giveaway! Ohandplusalso- is it totally bad that every time I type "The Mint Julep" I crave the actual drink? Gah. It's been so long since I've had an alcoholic bev. I'm going to try to breastfeed JB until his is two, so, only a year and a half left until I can have some booze!! Hey-oh!!

Congrats to Rachel B. for winning my last great giveaway.

My Sweet Savannah

Stopping in this gloomy Monday afternoon to share one of my very favorite blogs, My Sweet Savannah. Melanie, the mastermind behind the blog, has impeccable taste. Her sense of style and interior design makes swoon every time she publishes a new blog post. 

A little while ago she posted a lamp DIY. And, oh my gosh, I love it. Go HERE to read how to do one yourself!


I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I will be back tomorrow with a great giveaway!

Jirka Vinse Jonatan Väätäinen

A Finnish artist, Jirka Vinse Jonatan Väätäinen, recreates Disney princesses into real life women. I went ahead and added the cartoon version next to his paintings so you can see how on point his work is.

American Girl Girl of the Year: Grace Thomas


If you've been an avid reader of my blog for some time now, you'd know our love for American Girl dolls by reading this, thisthis, and this. I've been on board the AG train since I was 8 years old. I pawned over Kirsten for a year before Santa finally brought her to me.

And now I get to share that love with my mini me. Adrienne is just starting to really love playing with American Girl dolls. She will dress them in different clothes, style their hair, and then make up magical adventures that they all go on together. She also loves it when her dolls look like her. So when American Girl debuted their newest Girl of the Year, Grace Thomas, Adrienne squealed. Grace Thomas looks almost identical to Adrienne.

Grace has gorgeous long brown hair with side swiped bang. She has big blue eyes and tiny freckles adorning her face. She comes dressed in an Eiffel Tower shirt, a pink skirt with a black bow on the front, and grey boots with bows on the sides. She even comes with a tiny charm bracelet that she can wear! Adorable.


Thank you American Girl for creating so many wonderful childhood memories.

American Girl Grace Thomas c/o American Girl.
