Fashion Friday How to Wear It: Fall Trends Edition!


We’re officially well into fall now, with icy weather approaching! So after being spoiled with a few extra weeks of warm temps, I think I can safely break out the boots, sweaters, and jackets.  I’m really excited about this year’s fashion trends. I’ve been lucky enough to attend a handful of fashion shows and events, […]

CAbi Fall Looks and a BeautiFall Event! #FashionFriday

CAbi BeautiFall Tuscadero Stevie Date Night

I’m a sucker for clothes. I still will buy some cheaper on trend pieces here and there, but have opened up a whole new world shopping for timeless classic looks and investing in really good quality materials. CAbi has both! Affordable looks and classic higher end pieces.  I was recently invited to attend their BeautiFall Career […]

Shop Hot Looks for Fall at Colorado Mills & Save BIG! #FashionFriday

JCrew Outlet Fall 2014

I was invited to an event at Colorado Mills Outlet Mall in Lakewood, Colorado. Twist my arm will you?! Of course I jumped right on that event, especially since I’ve been a mallrat since birth, and been shopping at “The Mills” since it opened. I’ve been over every inch of that mall. Walked around for hours with […]

Spanx on a Plane – The Movie

Spanx On a Plane

“Enough is enough! I have had it with these mf-ing Spanx on this mf-ing plane!”       I was headed back from Type-A Parent Conference in Atlanta. I shared a cab, dinner and nice long chat with blogger and entrepreneur Cecily, with whom I’m blessed to call my friend. Being girls, we were talking about outfits, what we wear […]

The VMA’s were last weekend and I am the perpetual 14 year-old so I watched, recorded and watched again. So many great outfits, performances and HAIR! Since I recently started rocking celebrity-style extensions, I am constantly looking at sites to get ideas for my hair. Award shows are perfect for getting some amazing ideas for […]

9 Best Bets for Back to School Bargains


I’m a bit of a slacker when it comes to buying fall clothes for my kiddos. I prefer to wait until it’s actually fall–hard to get in the sweater-buying mood when it’s 95 degrees out! But with so many retailers offering deals right now, it’s tempting to buy ALL THE THINGS. So, I set out […]

Introducing CORE by Origami Owl #FashionFriday

core necklace charms by origami owl

I’m always searching for that perfect “everyday” necklace. I don’t just want it to be 1 charm on a chain, or have so many that you feel like your necklace is weighing you down. Something delicate, but with meaning. I have ones with the boys birthstones, their names or initials, ones to celebrate my pride […]

The Most Versatile Handbag in the World from Thirty-One Gifts #FashionFriday

Many who know me know my love affair with Coach handbags. I refuse to admit how many I own, nor mention the bracelets and eyeglasses and accessories that have their trademark logo on them. To do so would tip of my husband and he’d probably have a stroke. Instead let’s just say I have quite […]

From Hot Date to Play Date: 3 Fall Looks with CAbi #FashionFriday


On a 95-degree day in the middle of July, Fall was in the air! The Colorado Convention Center buzzed with beautiful, well-dressed women who were all a part of the CAbi Scoop–a twice-yearly event put on by CAbi to preview the new designs for each season, and treat their reps to 3 days of training, […]

Going with 2 redheads (‘natch!) and a villain. ๐Ÿ˜‰   For Conference Day & Evening […]

Teen Makeup Tips with Simple Beauty Minerals (#FashionFriday)

Recently, my almost-13 year old approached me and asked if she could buy a few cosmetics to try out. As she’s a girl who prides herself on her jeans-tee-sneakers sensibility, I was surprised. And as a mom who is just a little scared to let her baby grow up so dang fast, I was hesitant. […]

Prom Do Over #FashionFriday

Prom Do Over #FashionFriday

With Prom season among us, I thought it would be fun to created a couple looks to show my Prom style if I had the chance to go back and relive those days. The first look is my “sky’s the limit” for budget, and oh by the way, Ben Affleck would totally be my date, […]
