Any Given Wednesday

Whose ready for a little mid-week inspiration? I know I am. In this edition of Any Given Wednesday there’s a little bit of beauty (seriously the event Egg Canvas attended was just so beautiful… there’s also a bit of fashion, some yummy soup recipes and even a tutorial on how to get the perfect cat eye from Eat.Sleep.Wear.


  • Erica of Egg Canvas spends a Radiant Day with the beauty team of Cle de Peau Beaute. The whole event from the products to the venue is absolutely breathtaking.
  • I absolutely adore the dress that Julia of Gal Meets Glam is styling in her post This Is One of the Reasons Why I Love Charleston. Perfect shade of pink, and I definitely CANNOT wait until I can start bringing out my spring dresses.
  • Whether you’re just getting started in the art of photography, or you want improve your photography skills, you should definitely check out Fine Art photographer, Lucy Cuneo’s post Photography Quick Start Guide, Pt1. Also, check out her post Charleston Ritual: Morning Bread Run. If I didn’t already have The Daily on my list of foodie places to check out when I’m next in Charleston, it definitely would have been at the top after seeing the yummy pictures from this post.
  • Embrace the style of What Olivia Did in her post Forever Fauxrisian.
  • Pasta (or rice) are two things that I’m always adding to my turkey chili. If that’s something that you like to do as well, then you should definitely check out the recipe for One Pot Chili Cheese Pasta from How Sweet Eats. It looks fantastic!

  • I don’t know about you but I’m getting more and more frustrated with my favorite social media app, Instagram. After working hard to find time to go out and create content, or share something from daily life that others might find interesting, it so many times goes unseen. (and don’t even get me started on those who follow you and unfollow you in the same day… I genuinely like the accounts I follow and I hope for the same in my followers) This Time Tomorrow shares 4 tips for the latest Instagram algorithm change. You’ll definitely want to try them out!

  • I started to trying out natural deodorants two years ago after dealing with issues with the heavily scented deodorants. When they stopped making the one that I’d been using the search began again.
