Is it Friday already?  TBH, I woke up not even certain what day it was! I'm going to have to keep today's coffee conversation quick and simple, as I'm currently typing with a sick toddler (my son) in my lap.  This week has been a bit of a blur with the passing of my Grandpa, [...]

My Fall Front Porch

My Fall Front Porch

I can't put my finger on exactly what it is about Fall that I love so much, but I've known for a long time that it's my favorite season.  Perhaps it's a combination of scents, sights, tastes, and cooler temperatures; the spicy, earthy scented candles, the vibrant colors of the trees, the delicious pumpkin spice [...]

My LipSense Product Review

My LipSense Product Review

I love the look of lipstick, but I must be honest when I say it's not a huge part of my everyday makeup routine.  I am perfectly fine with just wearing a gloss or lightly tinted lip balm, but lately I've found myself more and more interested.  I have to admit, I'm lazy with lipstick. [...]

Currently sipping some coffee and browsing all the LDW sales, building my fall wardrobe one site at a time! I'm so thankful for long weekend.  This fun, flutter sleeve top is from Target, but unfortunately it is sold out at the moment. These dark wash denim jeans are slightly stretchy and so comfortable, plus they [...]

My not-so-secret “beauty secret”; I wash my face with Dove soap

My not-so-secret “beauty secret”; I wash my face with Dove soap

About 3 years ago, I was getting a pedicure and I couldn't help but notice how perfect and flawless the technician's skin was.  His (yes, it was a gay guy) complexion and makeup application was better than any woman's makeup I had ever had the pleasure of viewing so close up.  I just couldn't help [...]

Project “Pergola” from Start to Finish

Project “Pergola” from Start to Finish

A little over a year ago, we decided to build a pergola in our back yard.  My husband's good friends with a handyman who's specialty is stonework.  He came over and measured out the yard to determine the best location for the structure, drew up some plans, and gave us a list of building materials [...]

If it's neutral I'll wear it!  You can't go wrong with anything neutral and I've got a closet full.  The sequin embellishment on this top is just the right amount of flare to an otherwise basic outfit. Shop this Look:

7 T-Shirt Dresses You’ve Just Got To Have (psssst… they’re all under $40)

What's more comfortable than a t-shirt dress?  Nothing!  I'll take one in every color please. T-shirt dresses have been a favorite of mine simply because they are so versatile and can be worn super casual or even dressy depending on the accessories I choose.  During the hot Summer months, you will find me lounging around [...]

I love this outfit, mainly because I love this top. It was a StitchFix delivery from a little over a year go so I can not, for the life of me, find it anywhere on the internet (sigh). I love the way white pants, shirts, and shorts compliment my Summer complexion.  However, white anything really [...]

Makeup Talk: Drugstore vs. Designer

Makeup is makeup, no matter the price tag.  If the application is flawless, does it really matter how much it costs? Something to think about: A company like L’Oreal, who is is the world’s largest cosmetics and beauty organization, will put out similar products in different packaging for you to consume depending on your budget.
