Hey Friends! If you didn’t hear, I started a Youtube channel a week or so ago. I just uploaded my newest video which is all about Valentine’s Day! Did you realize Valentine’s is just around the corner!?! Crazy huh?!? Come watch me put together a V-day inspired outfit as well as chat about heartbreak and the one person who will never let you down. Plus, I have the cutest little guests that will make an appearance! 🙂
The other day, I spent some time with Emma looking through my most precious keepsake from my Grandma who passed away a few years ago. It is a book she put together for her high school senior project in 1949. She chose fashion as her theme for her project and inside the book she pasted numerous magazine cutouts of styles from that era including hair, casual wear, evening wear, lingerie, shoes, etc. It is such a special treasure I will always have.
Something struck me that day as I fingered through the pages. Continue reading “Longing for Days Gone By”
We’re going into the chillier months in the PNW which means a lot more time indoors for me. One thing you all have to know about me is that If I’m at home, I’m usually wearing comfy pants and not jeans. In fact, I went through a phase (like a year!) where I never wore jeans after having Cole! Now I own (ONLY!) two pairs of blue jeans because comfy pants are definitely my #1. I recently got these steel blue crushed velvet pants from PinkBlush and Oh my goodness, they are SO cute, and I was happily surprised with how soft they are. Continue reading “Thanks Living”
What else speaks fall than a slouchy sweater and beanie?!? This dusty rose knit and burgundy beanie are from the cutest local shop called Cedar & Pine. The other day, I had the opportunity to check out this boutique in Stanwood, Washington. I pretty much wanted to try on everything in the shop! They carry trendy clothing pieces as well as home decor (and even seasonal decor!). Continue reading “Fall Cozies from Cedar & Pine”
Can you believe that we had the first day of fall on Friday, and we are fast approaching October! My goodness, time flies especially when you have kids, and life is full. But I really do love this time of year. Some things I am looking forward to are: Continue reading “Fall Vibes”
I know the stereo type of someone into makeup would be that I sit for hours in front of the mirror. Well, no I don’t. I’m pretty quick most days-well you kind of have to learn how to do that as a mom (though in high school I definitely spent a long time getting ready). In fact, I’m a pretty expedient person now a days when it comes to getting things done or wanting to see results. It’s like when I check my abs a few days after working out for the first time, hoping to see something other than my post-baby pooch. I’m hoping I’m not the only one that does this!

I feel like I do this every spring. I start thinking about summer and swim suit season and think to myself, “I’m going to work out so that by summer I have at least a four pack and look all toned in a swim suit.” But every summer rolls by and this never becomes a reality. I end up sticking with my one pack (i.e. my tummy) and “chicken arms” (my term for my skinny arms). I can laugh at it as I write this, but I was reminded that summer is definitely a season, where insecurities about my body run a little deeper. I think most women would agree.
