The Mighty Midi

Posted on Aug. 14, 2014

If you're one of those people who's already excited about getting out your sweaters and scarves, cool your jets. We've hardly had enough warm days to get through half of our summer wardrobe, so the least you can do is give us the pleasure of riding out the rest of the season. While you're busy fluffing your fleeces, I'll be walking around in my summer midis.

I've never been a black and white person; I'm all about the gray, which is no...

The Only Skincare Product You Need To Face The Day

Posted on Aug. 11, 2014

Shopping for skincare is like searching for Mr. Right. We often fall for certain traits, but then we wish we could take bits and pieces from one and combine them with another to make the perfect companion. While I can't whip together the ideal mate, I have found the one in regard to skincare. Watch the video to meet your match. 


Sequins and Stripes (on Sale!)

Posted on Aug. 8, 2014

I was on a walk with my kids, and when I passed the boutique window, I saw this dress, or rather it saw me. It was screaming my name. The sparkles where twinkling in my eyes, the bow was begging to be wrapped around my body...the dress was me. It wasn't a choice to get it. I had to. I'm not an impulse buyer. In fact, I usually think of every reason as to why I shouldn't spend on myself. But when I saw this whimsical number, it was love...

The Easiest Money You'll Ever Make: 2 Websites To Know About

Posted on Aug. 4, 2014

It's that time of year when we start thinking about "back to school." With that comes the desire to clear out the old to make room for the new. It used to require a trip to the consigment shop or a garage sale to make a few bucks off your possessions. The latest trend -- online consignment -- requires the least amount of legwork and gets your goods in front of the most amount of eyeballs so you can earn the biggest payday.

We all wish our skin was as soft as a baby's. But what about when your baby's skin doesn't fit the cliche? My 15-month-old Jasper is the most adorable pudge ball (in my eyes anyway), and while his milky skin is smooth in most areas, it's bumpy on his thighs, the back of his arms and on the sides of his cheeks. It so happens that Jasper has a very common skin condition called Keratosis Pilaris, and a textbook case usually appears in those 3...

We all age differently. Wrinkles aren't my biggest issue. Mine is the loss of density. I'm noticing areas on my face that are starting to look more hollow. Watch the video to see what I mean. And if you're seeing the same thing happening to you, these tips will make all the difference. 


Ooze Summer Beauty

Posted on Jul. 26, 2014

I wish I could store a piece of summer under my bed and take it out when the weather turns cold and nasty. Since I can't do that, the next best option is to soak up the season.

With makeup, I embrace the natural look. It's easy because skin is glowier so it looks better without having to try harder. All it takes is a shiny, nude lipstick. I'll be honest: finding the right nude can be just as daunting as...

Classic Summer Shirt Dress

Posted on Jul. 23, 2014

  A shirt dress is an essential piece for a summer wardrobe. It's breezy, comfortable and depending on how you style it, it can morph into a million different looks. Today I went casual. I swapped out the matching belt for my own and chose more whimsical accessories. What I love about this particular shirt dress is that it has the details of a traditional men's button-down, but it's got a relaxed fit that's...
