Daily Style – Sweet Peter Pan

(Blouse – ASOS Maternity; Jeans – Pea In the Pod Maternity; Shoes – old BCBG; Bangles – Kate Spade; Necklace – F21; Preston Glasses – Warby Parker) Blouses and dresses with Peter Pan collars are usually not my first choice in silhouettes, but this little top stole my heart nonetheless.  I tried to play down […]

Top 5 Spring Nail Polishes for the Best Pops of Color

Giving myself a quick mani complete with a nail polish change is for me, one of the easiest and cheapest ways to lift my spirits and make me feel good.  As the old adage goes, look good, feel good, and when my nails are pretty, I just feel a tinge bit happier.  Now that Spring […]

Casual & Neutral Place Setting

I thought since I had the pictures already taken, and the floral arrangement post has received a good number of pins, I’d share another little set up I did over the weekend just for fun.  I know what you’re thinking, “how and why did she do this just for fun?”  Well the kids were swimming […]

Beauty Review – Dr. Gross Alpha Hydroxy Peel Pads

I turned 36 this year, and as the evidence of sun damage and general signs of aging started to become more and more relevant in my skin, I decided that this year was the year I needed to start getting serious about my beauty regimen.  I wrote a quick post about this topic a couple […]

Daily Style – The Good Stuff

(Jacket – Dolce & Gabbana; Shirt – American Apparel; Jeans – Gap Maternity; Shoes – Dolce & Gabbana) Yesterday my husband and I celebrated thirteen years of marriage.  When he asked for my hand in marriage over thirteen years ago, my dad replied “Are you sure?”  Lucky for me he’s a bit of a risk […]

Think Floral

Well hello there friends and Happy Monday!  I’m obviously a little late in getting a post up today.  It was a busy weekend, with my daughter’s 7th birthday party on Saturday, and yesterday spent going to church, purging closets and taking pictures of tutorials for the blog and new dining room chairs, not taking outfit […]

First Giveaway – Neon Rhinestone Bangles

It’s my daughter’s 7th birthday today and so in honor of her, I’m hosting my first giveaway.  Win a set of these neon rhinestone bangles (2 bangles). Of course you can make these yourself, but if you’re lazy, or tired, or busy, or whatever, I can make some for you!  While I’d love to say […]

Daily Style – Red & Gold

Favorite Bead Supply Store

It seems like between me and the kids, we’re always visiting someplace interesting or fun, and so I thought I’d start sharing some of those places with you all.  Most of our favorite spots are of course local, but there’s always a treasure to be found while traveling about too.  Today I’d like to share […]
