HELLO MONDAY! This weekend Guy and I had the chance to get away for a 24 hour period and travel up to Chicago to attend a wedding for a lifelong girlfriend of mine. We we're so excited to be able to get away just the two of us (after all it was our first overnight alone since before Eliza was born) and this yellow dress was the perfect wedding apparel for the perfect summer night!
My goal is to be able to send $1000 to this organization from the selling of these shirts. But in order to do that I need to sell $5,000 worth of t-shirts, which is an astounding 625 t-shirts to be exact! Right now as I type this...I'm already feeling defeated because that sounds absolutely crazy to me. Impossible even.
I always love jumping into a new season, I love seeing all the new trends and buying a few pieces to mix and match throughout the rest of year. This year, is the year of off the shoulder tops, gladiator sandals, and boyfriend jeans.
Last week when I traveled back to my hometown in Michigan, my oldest sister Hannah picked out the perfect spring outfit for me. We ventured down the road to this beautifully restored church in the country and took in the beauty all around us.
A couple weeks ago I shared with you my collaboration with my sister Hannah on our very first beauty tutorial over on my YouTube channel and today, I'm excited to share with you that we teamed up yet again to bring a little fashion to your Friday! Hannah has always been not only an amazing makeup artist but stylist as well!
About a month ago I opened up about how I was joining the "New Year, New You" bandwagon and was really adamant about committing myself to getting healthy. I wanted to take my readers along on this journey with me as a way to keep me accountable and stay motivated. Well I can officially say that it's been about a month and a half since I started this journey and while it's been difficult, I've seen a lot of growth in myself and I've also seen a lot of success.
You can never have too much black am I right? And secondly, you can never have too many dresses (double right)! I have teamed up with The Mom Capsule to bring you this chic and comfy, little black dress! It is super lightweight, easy to move around in, and hugs you in all the right places. Not to mention that semi-open, criss-cross back gives it just the edge you need for a great night out on the town.
Let's be honest ladies, we all want to look good when we're out and about. And when we're traveling with a bunch of kids in tow we question if looking "cute" while still remaining comfy is even possible. Fortunately for you, the heavens have declared that it is in deed possible to look stylish and be comfy while traveling!
I am fully aware that I am a week too late on the whole "New Years Resolution" train, ESPECIALLY in the blogging world! You're supposed to be like two weeks ahead of every topic, holiday, and event to even stay relevant. Well the stomach flu has no regard for my relevancy...sooooo here I am...trying to put into words my "new years resolution."
My husband is one of the hardest people to buy gifts for. He never drops hints, gives suggestions, or admits he "needs" anything. So when thinking about Christmas shopping for him, I immediately die a slow painful death. I absolutely HATE buying gifts just to "buy gifts." I always want them to be meaningful and actually be something that is needed and/or wanted.
Back in June, I experienced being stolen from for the first time in my life. If you've been around my little corner on the internet for a while you may remember my ranting over the issue on my blog and then that post being picked up by The Huffington Post in an article I titled "To The Person That Stole My Diaper Bag."
I wanted to share with you a collection of some of my go-to outfits this fall and hopefully you can get as excited as me to layer up as the weather turns a little crispier! :) I am by no means a "fashion expert" or a "fashionista" but I like to dress up and I like to feel good about myself in what I'm wearing...so that makes me a semi-fashion lover right? haha
If you know me, you may have noticed that I'm quite the minimalist when it comes to jewelry and accessories. I have my "go to" earrings and necklaces but I like to keep it pretty simple and casual. Over the last couple years I've seen some jewelry companies emerge and one that has stuck out to me is Stella & Dot. They've got super cute and funky jewelry that is high quality and affordable!
Although I've kept it pretty casual this summer there was still one accessory on my must have list that has been PERFECT for this season! My handcrafted wood watch from JORD! If you haven't heard of these one of a kind watches then you need to get out more! Ok...maybe I'm not one to talk, BUT seriously these watches are BOMB!.
Before I decided to invest in a nice camera, I just so happened to stumble upon these really amazing camera straps while reading one of my favorite bloggers posts (Casey Wiegand). I couldn't help but fall head over heels for this unique and incredibly stylish camera accessory. I'd never seen a product like this and for that, I just HAD to have one!
