A New Blog Name! ...& Charms & Pearls on "Love Day"

Happy Sunday!
I hope your day this Lord's day is a most blessed one so far.

In between internet troubles (that are still going on :( )  and not being on
my computer much lately because of busyness of life,
I have been gradually finishing a post I started writing back in
August of this past year!  And that is almost finished ☺
It amazes me sometimes how you can go back to finish a project or
something and you didn't realize how long it has been since you
first started it.

But for now, for today, I wanted to say hello and just 
wish you a beautiful day however you're spending it-
whether celebrating Valentine's or spending a family day,
at church, or on a picnic... any of those
ways you could be spending this delightful Sunday.

This weekend has been a blessing of relaxing and 
family time and being busy, but good busy.  Today, we found ourselves-
my Mama and I- heading into the city to do a little shopping
for the afternoon.
We have loved going to this ladies' boutique where they
sell the prettiest classy clothing, and even better is that you can
find bargains on things you would never imagine.
Today, I found a couple of treasures.  We both did...
including a crushed velvet cherry red jacket
and a Lilly Pulitzer seashell print spring blouse♥
It's exciting to be able to find things like that and still be

...I love sharing ideas for modest, classy outfit ideas
 (especially if it includes some Southern accents and flair) ;)
so since I had my camera out today,
 I laid out my outfit to wear to go out for the afternoon
together and took a photo.
Lately, it has been very warm in this neck of the woods, but today
 was delightfully just a bit cooler and cozier so I decided on...

 a plaid oxford under a sequin-front cardigan
for some added sparkle and fun, and accessorized with
some pearls and my well loved flowers and bee vintagey
charm bracelet, as well as some red bauble earrings.

This outfit definitely had a wintery feel to it to me,
and I think it's because I am wishing so hard for some
cold weather.  I want to build a snowman oh so

.            .           .

I wrote recently- in my last post- about
graduating, my experience growing into myself, so to speak,
over the past few years, and the milestone that this new year
represents to me...
I have been thinking about it over the past week or so,

 I decided
to change the name of my blog!

I have loved the sound of my little blog name
for these past few years, but I'm also excited to have
a fresh, new name...

Magnolias and Grace

I'm so thankful for the sweet, sweet friendships that
I have been blessed by and do not want to lose you, blogging friends♥
So, as I change the name of my blog, which will also change my
blog address, I am going to leave my new address
(if everything goes through okay when I officially change it)...
It will be:

If you subscribe by email, it may delete you from the list
since the name is changing.  I'm not sure and I'm going to try
to change the address in the system to keep working,
 but I am leaving the address in case☺

Hugs and blessings!!

Have a wonderful rest of this LONG weekend!


  1. Your outfit for going out is lovely, Jazzmin. I especially love the pearls against the blouse. The charm bracelet is so sweet. I will be watching for your notice that the new blog name is up and running. :)

    1. Dianna,
      Thank you so much for your kind comment on my outfit! And you are truly such a dear friend in the Lord that I am blessed to have met here as I hope you know, so I am glad you will look for the new name/blog so we can stay in touch God-willing :)

      Have a blessed day!!
      Many hugs,

  3. Looking forward to seeing your new blog name up and running! :)

    1. Thank you, Kalin!

      Hope you are doing wonderfully and had a blessed weekend :)


  4. I've always loved your blog name; but, I do realize you are in a new chapter of life. Magnolias is nearly as southern as sweet tea - and I'm all about grace, so I like your new name as well.

    Classy and thrifty: it's so neat when an outfit can be both!

    1. Jerralea,
      Thank you, I am excited about the new name :) And I thought exactly as you about the "grace" part... it has so much weight and influence in my life that I just felt like that was a word I could not help but put into my new blog name.
      And yes, an outfit that is both is so wonderful when you can find it! I'm thankful for good sales and modest, classy clothes when you can find them together ;)

      Thank you for visiting and I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

  5. Sweetest Jazzmin, forgive me for just now visiting...I have been away on an adventure for the last 5 days :)

    First of all, congratulations on graduating! Oh friend, I am so excited and happy for you! What an accomplishment. And may I just say your photos from the your previous post are simply lovely... You, dear one, are oh-so-beautiful, inside and out.

    And secondly, your new blog name is divine! I love it and it is perfect for you {{smiles}} I am looking forward to continuing on in the blogging journey with you.

    Love, hugs, and blessings to you!

    1. Stephanie,
      What a joy to read your comment, dear friend! Thank you so much!!
      No worries at all, I am so glad to have you visit and so happy for you to have gotten some sweet time of adventuring! How precious times like that are taking in the excitement and joy of taking those times in doing something a little different from the usual and spending time with family. I have missed visiting you this past week or so and am on my way over after this to see if I missed a post about your adventure :)
      Thank you so much for warming my heart with your words in your congratulations and kind thoughts! I cannot thank you enough, you are so sweet!
      And that means so much to read your kind words on my new blog name :) I'm so glad you like it. And I am most definitely looking forward to the blogging journey that lies ahead as well, most assuredly because your dear friendship is a part of it.

      Love and hugs to you!
      Many blessings!

I have been having much trouble with my internet lately so please forgive my late response- my signal went out as soon as I was about to reply to you several days ago and is just now back.
      Thank you for your kind words, dear friend. I'm so glad you like my new blog name :) And I'm so glad you caught my post too- it is so important to me to have you as a dear blogging friend and I wouldn't want to lose touch :)
