Lemon Laine – 1900 Eastland Ave #102, Nashville

If you find yourself in Nashville and love beauty products, you’d be missing out if you didn’t stop by Lemon Laine in East Nashville. This bright boutique is filled with natural beauty products, but that’s not all… say hello to their unique oil bar. It’s just as exciting as it sounds. We booked an appointment not entirely sure what to expect, but that was half the fun.

We pulled up a chair and were handed a glass of bubbly. Already off to a great start. Our Lemon Laine expert asked about our skin and beauty routines, all to find out that Emily and I are the worst with skincare. She smiled and placed out these chemistry class reminiscent trays. We chatted about our personal skin concerns as we sniffed all sorts of scents. She selected what base we both needed, and we chose our three top essential oils based on smell and benefit.

We sipped our bubbly, she stirred our customized concoctions, and we anticipated the creation of our very own beautiful Lemon Laine oil bottle. As if the bottle wasn’t cute enough, she handed us a sticker sheet to decorate. I started with cool symmetrical designs, and then went nuts and put every damn sticker I could on the bottle. Needless to say it was an amazing hour. We HIGHLY recommend booking the oil bar with your girlfriends for any occasion. It’s been a few days with our oils, and we’re loving the look and feel of our skin. THANK YOU for having us, LL!

Coffee Cocktail Lovers Have A New Home

Short glass: “Extra Spro Shot” – Whisper Creek TN sipping cream, espresso shot.

Tall glass: “TN Coffee Fizz” – Bourbon, cynar, coffee liqueur, spice tonic.

We were enjoying cocktails at L.A. Jackson, the Thompson Hotel’s fabulous rooftop bar, when we heard about Killebrew After Dark. The hotel’s coffee shop downstairs apparently turns into a cocktail bar, serving up unreal coffee and espresso concoctions. Pictured above are two of our favs. I highly recommend the Extra Spro Shot! 

But don’t worry, if you’re not a fan of coffee (like Emily) they also serve vodka, bourbon, rum, gin, tequila, bubbles, and beer. Something for everyone! So maybe next time there’s a long line to get into L.A. Jackson, you should kill some time at Killebrew Coffee.

Cheekwood Pumpkin House

Emily- Dress, Forever 21. Boots, Rebecca Minkoff. Sunnies, Vint & York

We found our dream home here in Nashville! A home made entirely out of pumpkins?! We’re super busy *swooning* over here! I mean yes, it would get a bit chilly at night, but it’s worth it. Who else wants to move in here with us? 

Now that we are in Nashville we are finally able to wrap up in Lily Guilder’s amazing creations! I don’t even think I need to write anything about this silver sequin coat. It totally speaks for itself. For those of you who are going to burning man you need one of her coats. Or if you’re like us you just need one for running errands and hanging at pumpkin houses. 

We decided to go with full on silver ensembles because SILVER! I picked up this little dress at Forever 21 and paired it with matching boots from Rebecca Minkoff. You can barely tell I’m wearing anything if you consider the paleness and white blonde hair. I had to wear my new Vint & York sunnies so you knew I had a face to put them on. Halloween month is always difficult when you already look like a ghost/zombie/witch all year long. Speaking of Halloween month… make sure you play our Hocus Pocus drinking game before Halloween is over!

We had to run through Cheekwood too quickly to really take in the rest of the estate and gardens. However, from what we did see it is stunning. If you are in the Nashville area during this month you should make it a point to check out the pumpkin house! You can even take home one of the little baby pumpkins too! 

Xx, Emily
