bath and body products

Once in awhile a package lands on my doorstep full of random beauty products, or toys, or kitchen paraphernalia.  And to most of the time I give the contents away to someone who can make better use of whatever it is, than me.  Most of the time the packages are full of stuff I just can’t get excited about.  This is not one of those times.  This is one of the rare exceptions when something shows up that I can’t…

Easy Style With Boyfriend Jeans

Boyfriend jeans. We all want them but it’s easy to assume they only look good on super skinny models. Well, as a not super skinny model (or a model at all for that matter) I am here to tell you that they can be worn by us curvier women too! Recently I got a pair of boyfriend jeans in my fashion subscription box and I couldn’t be happier with them. They are the perfect summer jeans, if you ask me, because they…

Summer vacation might be coming to a close but it’s never too late to squeeze in some little weekend vacations. Those are my favorite kinds!

On those types of vacations, whether you’re flying or driving, it’s nice to keep things simple, am I right? I’m all about minimal makeup, dry shampoo (hello, life saver!) and cute hairstyles. So today…

Back to School With Fancy New Shoes

Back to School With New Shoes

This year, we’re oversimplifying our life in an effort to stay on top of the crazy school madness before it even begins!

It turns out, all my son needs to get through school and swim and everything inbetween was three pair of…

A Summer Full of Sun and Swim

It’s been the Summer of Swim Meets at my house.  Let’s be honest, it’s always the Summer of Swim Meets, but this summer has been pretty back-to-back.  Swim practice every day, and a swim meet every weekend, all over the state.  We’ve been out in the sun nonstop.

Aside from the pastel colors, my hair has been every natural color available: red, blonde, orange, black,…
