Outfit Post: Something New

Hi friends!

So I have something SUPER exciting to tell you. I have been keeping it on the DL for quite sometime... Sincerely Truly Scrumptious is getting a HUGE facelift and will officially be shortly. This will be the last blog post on this site. I cannot believe it! I have been working so hard on transferring all my content over to the new site, designing everything + creating new content for you all. Hopefully will be even more user friendly for you all. It will allow you to search tutorials, get outfit inspiration, shop my looks, get info on Magnolia Styling, essential oils + so much more!
How Alyssa May Wilson got started//
Ever since I started blogging years ago, I told myself if I ever got tired of it, uninspired or overwhelmed I would stop. I also have grown so much as a person since the start of this blog. I felt like it was the perfect time to rebrand + create a new space for all my passions to live. Not going to lie, it was probably 1 o'clock in the morning when I couldn't sleep + decided to purchase my new domain name. haha! At least I'm productive when my insomnia sets in :) I had a vision of what I wanted my new site to look like + everything is slowly but surly coming together. I have always been up for a challenge + creating this new site was definitely a huge obstacle to overcome. I feel so ready to start getting more personal + contiue sharing all the things I love + care about.
What to expect on Alyssa May Wilson//
I want to be as consistent + REAL as possible + talk about everything from fashion to DIYS, recipes, married life, date night + home decor. I want to create a community for women to feel inspired + loved. I'm staying true to myself + will continue being 100% me. :) As of right now you can expect posts to go up on Tuesdays + Thursdays. I hope you all are just as excited about this as I am!
When will the site be ready?//
I am working super hard getting everything perfect so until now you will see the coming soon landing page until I officially open it up to the public. Ahhh I can't wait to show you how pretty it looks. I'm so proud. And don't worry - everything Sincerely Truly Scrumptious is transfered over so all of my previous content will be there. When goes live you will be forwarded to the new site if you try coming here. I will also post on my IG @alyssamaywilson to announce the launch.
Until then I am so excited to let you all in on the secret I've been keeping. I can't wait for you all to contiue on this journey with me. I cannot thank you all enough for all the love + support! xo

Current Favorite Podcasts + Books I'm Listening To

One of my favorite things to do on my drive to + from work is listen to podcasts + audio books. Sure I love jamming out to my gangster rap + worship music every now and again {yes, you heard that right. I love a variety!} but with my busy schedule listening to all my books has become one of my favorite things. I love learning, I love stories, I love mysteries, I love advice + I try to keep positivity surrounding me as much as possible. I want to share all my favorites with you guys + don't worry this list is just getting started. Let me know if you like posts like this + I will share more of my favorite things with you.

Annual Tea With My Mom//

Every year since I can remember my mom + I have gone to tea around the holidays. It is our special tradition. Lately we have been going to the Phoenician for tea + we just love it. Everyone is so nice there + we love spending time together. If you have never been to tea before I'll explain a little about it.

First, you pick the tea you want. They have a huge selection of teas to choose from. Herbal, black + green teas. Then comes the first course, finger sandwiches. The sandwiches include - English cucumber, hickory smoked salmon, classic egg salad, Phoenician's lemon + thyme chicken salad + crisp asparagus + garlic herb mousse. The little sandwiches are so delicious + luckily for us they bring out seconds :) Up next are the scones. They had a buttermilk scone + cranberry. Both were so yummy. The scones are accompanied with devonshire cream, lemon curd + fresh strawberry preserves. I could eat all three of those toppings plain with a spoon :) haha! I'm so lady like! Lastly, are the desserts. So many tasty little treats + they are all so unique. I love the presentation.

Tea is my favorite tradition + I love spending time with my mom. After tea this year we looked around the resort then drove around looking at houses in the prettiest neighborhoods. We always have the best time! I love her!

Anyways, if you have never been to tea before get your mom or best girlfriends + go! Its so fun to chat + be lady like for the day :)
