a few new “must have’s”

hello lovelies! I cam across some fun finds this weekend that I KNEW you would also need to know about. 
First is this genius device. 
Yes that would be a cooler, for the fashionable-yet prepared-tailgatin’ gal on the go. Is that not the most precious thing you have ever seen?
Second item up for discussion: this little Southern Belle poofin’ kit. Have you ever seen anything more glorious. Apparently it hails from Wal-Mart??
I can’t stop thinking about all of the awesome poofs I could share with the world if I had this. Must obtain. 
 {just me accosting Brooke over cocktails. I think she needs to rock the poofy side pony}
Thirdly: I have been lusting over this here necklace for some time, but just can’t bare the $800 plus price tag. Well LUCKILY I saw my cousin’s sister in law (follow me here) at Pure Barre awhile back and she had one on that she got a a boutique here in Lexington, for a majah steal. Also my initials are AAJ, which create the perfectly symmetrical monogram, IMHO. 😉  Or maybe I should do a PLL… I do love cursive L’s.

    Is it so incredibly sad that I have no idea what any of those combs in that kit would be used for? I'm telling you – I am a shame to Southern women everywhere. My pitiful flat hair. 🙁

    Love the bag. I have one myself. It makes me feel much more classy when I'm caring around large quantities of vino! 🙂

  2. ty says:

    1) I want the combs. 2) I want that pouf even more. And 3) I need the necklace. TLS, please.

  3. Jessica says:

    LOVE that cooler! Where did you find it??!!!

  4. I want the necklace STAT! 🙂

  5. that cooler is super cute..I've seen some like that at Marshall's for cheap! Also, those combs are crazzzyy, I bet you could get some major volume with those!

  6. Laura says:

    i have to agree with Amber.. i am not super sure what to do with all of those different combs.. haha. 🙂 BUt i LOVE the idea of having a POOF! 🙂 and i love that COOLER! um, that would be perfect for keeneland and football tailgates.. amazing!


  7. Meredith says:

    I am proud to say I have one of the mini coolers…it was part of our wedding gift from one of my friends last year with my new monogram on the side. I MUST have that necklace…care to share where it was purchased in Lexington???

  8. shay says:

    Hi Miss Pink LouLou!

    for much less than $800! (whoo!)it was the same necklace Michelle Money wore on the Bachelor this season! Absolutely adorable!

  9. Katie says:

    Kindly tell us where to find that adorable cooler, kthanks 🙂 Also, a poof tutorial would be fab! I'm from Texas so I know the potential for an amazing poof is deep in me, waiting to come out…

  10. Beth says:

    I have a necklace similar that I got for myself two Christmas' ago. And it did NOT have a the $800 price tag. I got the sterling silver twin from for $185!!!!! and i LOVE it.

  11. Agreed- that little cooler is the cutest!

  12. Erica says:

    Those are really awesome finds. Love the poof kit whoever it was was thinking about you and a few taxes girls i know but more you.

  14. Britt says:

  15. I need those combs bc I LOVE the pouf!

  16. L.Caroline says:

  17. Katy says:

    Dyingggg over that cooler. Love it!!!

  20. MJ says:

  21. stephanie says:

  28. Brittany says:

    I love that bag! I just found your blog and I have loved reading your posts! I am now your newest follower! Please check out my blog at:!

  29. Candace says:

    I think there should be a poof tutorial as well. I'm poof challenged and I need all the help I can get. Yours always looks fab!

  30. I love love love that necklace, would go crazy to have it in gold, but YES, everytime I see a pricetag on it I break out in a sweat! Does your boutique carry gold also?

  31. I just "favorited" a bag that looks like that one on an ADORB etsy shop I just found. But it's a beach bag. BUT it's monogrammed. Check 'er out! Her stuff is SOOO cute!

  32. I have the necklace and LOVEEE it (def didnt pay $800 though lol) but my next comment is that I have the perfect blog post for you… you should do a video, start to finish, of how to obtain the "poof" for all of us not so great poofer wanna-bes to see!!!! 🙂 Please do!! xo

  33. Hailey says:

    I have a green and blue cooler just like that :)! I use to all the time, its perfect for the places don't allow coolers since it looks like a beach bag.

    PS. Love the necklace, I have been dying to get it ever since I saw it on the Bachelor. I should probably wait till my name changes next year.

  34. Kristen says:

    i need those combs!! I'm an eastern girl living in the poof state of utah! the bigger the better! 🙂

  35. capperson says:

    Oh my goodness, Seriously I want the combs and I wan my hair to freaking grow because I want that poof even more!!!

  36. simple girl says:

    Can you do a poof tutorial?? And whereeee is the cooler from?

  37. Caroline says:

    All my friends and I have the monogrammed necklace! Love it! We all get ours from little boutiques up here on the Main Line. They usually cost around 250-300. I can't imagine paying $800 dollars for one!
    I got mine from here in Gold Vermeil but it comes in silver also!

  38. katelyn w says:

    Ah! Where in Lexington did she get the necklace?? I have been dying for one but everyone I find is waaaay expensive!

  39. Gina says:

    I want the cooler for the bottles of milk I pump. Does that mean I am too old for it? What if I promise that after I am done breastfeeding, I'll use it for alcohol?

  40. LOL those combs are carazy! You must show me how to use those babies. OMG, I love that necklace….I must have one like it!

  41. Elizabeth says:

    I got my necklace at Sincerely Yours at Victorian Square. Probably paid $80-$100 for it. I LOVE it!!!

  42. I'm obsessed with the necklace!

  43. CMae says:

    Your friend has mighty purdy hair!!! 🙂

  44. Lisa says:

    Can you please do a blog on getting the POOF!

  45. Mommy Webb says:

    :)Must. Buy. Comb. Set.

  46. Mandy says:

    if I can't find those combs, I might have to have you import me a set to south carolina!

  47. Kori says:

    Love the cooler bag! My salon just got those in too, they are so perfect for the pool! Have a great Wednesday honey! Kori xoxo

  48. Hayley says:

    You have me embracing the poof in a major way! However, since I have a lot of hair, I'm having trouble actually getting the poof "poofed!" Hoping this magic kit might help me out. Thanks!

  49. Mateya says:

    I want that necklace! Soooo cute!

    Love the cooler…what a great idea! Where did she find it?

  50. Tangles says:

    I found the combs at WM today! They are $3.37 for the set. They were on the haircare aisle – where the haircolor, brushes, and clips, etc. are on – at the very bottom of the display of combs and brushes. Yay!

  51. I love your little finds from the weekend! I agree, I love the necklace & I want one w/out the $800 price tag eeek! Def need a pouf tutorial. I have long hair, and just cant get it to stay back combed! ahh!! Dust It, Hairspray, nothing helps.

    Also…thought you may like to know, although you probably already own it, but for others that dont Carrie Underwoods CD Play On is only $3.99 today on Amazon MP3! Just added it to my collection ahhhhhh

  52. * Jessica * says:

    Although I'm sure you already know this: Carrie's on Leno tonight! 🙂

  53. Sara says:

    I am DEF gonna have to pick up one of those purse coolers, we have a little shop at the Tanger outlets here in Charleston that makes those. I also N.E.E.D that poofing kit! I have tries EVERYthing to get some volume to my hair with no luck thus far, hopefully this will help 🙂

  54. Amber says:

    You can guarantee I will be making a trip to Wal-Mart to find the poofin' kit!

    Lovin that poofy pony.

    I have been obsessing over that necklace for a few months now but I cannot bring myself to paying that much for it!

  55. amy anne says:

    That is by far the cutest cooler I've ever seen. How fabulous!

  56. Lindsey says:

    Loved that necklace ever since I saw Alexis Belino from RHOC wear one. Even though I don't care for her personally, I love her loock and her style. Esp her hair and make-up. Oh, and wardrobe and body. Fake or not, gf looks good. My name starts with an L, so I'll totally take that cooler. Please and thank ya kindly!

  57. Mighty Burns says:
