Give a smile, share a smile, and pay it forward! There are so many simple things we can do to help each other feel special. Everyone is struggling with something. This past year I can not tell you how many times I was in tears instead of smiles. My mom never failed to pay it forward. No matter what her day encountered, she gave me words of encouragement, tissues to wipe away the tears and endless hugs and love. She did not give me a million dollars, or take me on a fancy trip. She gave me KINDNESS.read more
It’s the night before Christmas and I have a story to tell!!! After you read, will you take on this tradition as well?

Passing on the cookie plate this week? HECK NO! As much as I try to run past those holiday goodies, I crumble every time. Especially when someone makes them gluten free, then I totally cave! Looking cute in the am, but by 2:00pm… um, where’s the stretchy pants? Can you believe these pants actually have an elastic waist? Santa has brought us the ultimate gift from Anthropologie this year!read more
My scarf obsession continues, but it’s official I have a new favorite! There is something truly special about having something one-of-a-kind and made to order. When I first found Mamina, I was immediately impressed with the quality and warmth of her knitwear. What impressed me more, was I had been searching for someone to make me my very own scarf. I saw Eleni from Convey the Moment in something similar and I really wanted to get one made. I searched and searched until Mamina solved all my problems.read more
The older I get, the more challenging the wardrobe gets! Anyone else wanna look cute, but still maintain an age appropriate look? Add in the holidays, and I find myself at a complete loss. I mean those super sparkly little dresses call my name, but I had to walk on by! My solution to still feel sexy but maintain an age appropriate look, pleather! If it’s real or fake anyone can rock it out, right?! As I help myself, I hope to help you! The holidays are sure to feel polished and pretty in pleather!

Wearing Multiple Hats, Literally.
Yes, the change of season is falling upon us again! As fall slowly fades away… winter is ready to come out and play. Truth be told… for this look, originally I wanted my hat to match my flowers. (Crazy ocd ways I know!) More importantly though, as I changed hats I came to realize something. How many hats do we typically wear in one day?read more
