weekly fitness tip: schedule your workout.

I’m feeling the March doldrums. I know they’re supposed to be reserved for January, but I’m feeling them right now. In the middle of a nasty day in March. I personally think March should be eliminated from the calendar entirely, but that’s neither here nor there. What is here, and there, is my Thursday Fit Tip which is: schedule fitness into your day I have a girlfriend who is an exercise guru. I mean, she could teach the class. She…

snow boots for women.

Kaska $179.95 {via Sorel} Am I the only one who thought Sorel boots were beyond help? That the only reason one would ever wear them was out of sheer frozen-toe desperation? I had no idea they were so stylish now. I mean, flat out cute. The kind of cute that makes you wish you lived in Utah in March. Well, let’s not get carried away now, Utah in March is pretty Grey and snowy and I don’t want to wish…

Wear Palettes

There is so much fun to be had at Wear Palettes. Have you ever had an outfit, the colors in which you could envision a pretty room? My daughter, in particular, has had several dresses which would have made lovely bedrooms (or drapes or couches).

To bumper or not to bumper? It’s a matter of some decision making when putting together a nursery and crib ensemble.

eat at the blue lemon bistro.

One of the perks of blogging {no, not the explaining to everyone I know what I do and getting blank stares in return} is getting invited to cool stuff. I feel like actual press. And guess what, actual press? life’s a little more cozy where they live. Backstage passes, premieres, restaurant openings. You know, business as usual.

I couldn’t resist sharing this dress/baby with you. (I spotted it on Coveiter.) This custom Christening gown is made from vintage wedding dresses by a family-owned business, Eden’s Bouquet.
