Tina, here. "Greenery" is the new "Rose Quartz." Wallpaper is the new paint. Rams horns are the new stag horns. The Cotswolds are the new campgrounds, calico is the new plaid and battenburg is the new crochet. Welcome to the Romantic Countryside. It's almost Valentine's Day.

Tina, here. Have you noticed? Everyone is breathing a little easier these days. That's because there's more room in our clothes. We literally have more breathing room.

Tina, here. I just need one snow day. One. (And historically, Nashville gets that one snow in February if we're gonna get one. So, yay.) And then...SPRING. I am actually excited about fashion for the first time in a while. And by "a while," I mean since maybe fall 2014. But that's a long time [...]
Tina, here. Why is it that all Parisian women have that certain je ne sais quoi that makes them so chic? And they make it look so easy. It's like it's their birthright or something. I wonder if this is fair? Doesn't matter because Tina is sharing with you some of her French style secrets. [...]
A wardrobe is like a pantry. You've got to keep those non-perishable staples on hand like White Lily flour, EVOO, and a good bottle of red wine. A well-edited wardrobe needs to consist primarily of a few staples without an expiration date, plus a healthy dose of trends with a short shelf life.
Tina, here. I've scoured my favorite retailers to bring you the best of the best in Winter Sales. But first... My rules for shopping the sales: Never spend money to save money. Only buy something on sale if you would have wanted it at full price. A $100 pair of shoes you get for [...]

Tina, here. As I'm writing this, the weather folks here in Nashville are calling for snow. Which fills me with glee and makes me want to dance around the house like an 8-year-old hoping for a snow day. There are few things in this world I love more than snow. It was not snowing for [...]

Tina, here. Happy New Year to you! January is a time to rethink all your decisions. To ask yourself, am I who I want to be? Have I been reading up enough on current events? What would my parents really think of my life? And why do I keep wearing clothes I hate? ...Those black [...]

Christmas is not Christmas without Christmas cookies. Everyone has their recipes. I just go straight in for the dough. Every Christmas Eve, my grandmother's cook would bring my brother and me raw sugar cookie dough wrapped in tin foil. I can't believe my mother allowed us to eat on it for days. But I'm telling [...]

Our family, probably like yours, has a long tradition of keeping family pictures. I have saved a lot of my Christmas cards through the years and especially love looking back at pictures of my nieces and nephews, and my friends' children, to see how they've grown. I keep them out in a silver dish all [...]
Wintertime Sunday's are for church, hot cocoa and reading in front of the fire.

My [...]

Hey gals! It's Deidre. If you could listen in on some of the conversations Tina and I have, you might hear her telling me not to wear certain boots with certain jeans, and I'd be telling her that I don't care about her rules and that she looks like a boring businesswoman. It's all out [...]
Your home needs to smell like this. Like right now. You may want to stock up, because there was a for real shortage of this resinous sap a few years ago during the holidays. I was forlorn. Now I have a stockpile of candles and incense. If you need a little Christmas, right this very [...]
