STYLE | Creating My Capsule Wardrobe, Part 1

Could you go an entire year without spending any money on clothes? I’m not sure how I got here, but I’ve become a slave to stuff. I enjoy buying things a little too much. I like the hunt. I love getting packages in the…

STYLE | Getting Back to Basics

I love clothes, and when I go shopping, I have a tendency to buy things that are bright and bold and may or may not work with anything else in my closet. I just buy what I like, but not always what I need,…

SHOPPING | Valentine’s Day Gifts for Him

Magazines and TV commercials make it seem like Valentine’s Day is all about us. And our guys usually feel the same, too. They get us flowers, pay for a nice dinner (or make one…that’s always a nice touch!) and then we also get a…

SHOPPING | LoveBrownSugar 5th Anniversary + Pop-Up Shop

This weekend I was pleased to attend the LoveBrownSugar 5th Anniversary Event and Holiday Pop-Up Shop. I featured Christina on The Feisty House a while ago, and I’ve watched her blog grow over the last five years. It was great to finally meet her…

STYLE | Some New Stuff for Spring

One of the best things about Spring (second only to the warmer weather!) is the opportunity to update my closet with a few new pieces. I’ve been doing a little shopping here and there…nothing too crazy (I am planning a wedding after all). I’ve…

STYLE | Stackable Gold Rings

I have to admit that accessories are an afterthought when I put together an outfit. Other than earrings, my watch and maybe a necklace (I stress, maybe) I don’t really use jewelry and other accessories (like belts!) to my advantage. What I’m starting to…

SHOPPING | Iris & Ink

I love window shopping on The Outnet. There’s something really amazing about seeing how much lower the prices are for designer pieces at The Outnet. Visiting the site always gets me thinking, “Oh, that’s not so bad. I can TOTALLY do $975 for that…

BEAUTY | My Winter 2013 Skincare Routine

Believe it or not, I’m turning 30 soon. Gone are the days when I could just rinse my face off with a little water, through on some Jergens, and walk out the house. Nowadays, there’s no way I could treat my face like that…
