Eat. Work. Exercise. Sleep. Repeat. This is my life and I wouldn’t give it up. Having said that, I decided recently that I really needed to spice things up. So I joined an online dating site. I haven’t been on a proper date in well… what seems like forever. While going to my closet, I shuffled past my work clothes, about 2 weeks worth of gym gear and an only wore once bridesmaid dress.
I decided it was time to do a little shopping and find myself that perfect first date outfit.
From James Dean and Marilyn Monroe to David Beckham and January Jones, the denim jacket has been worn by all the cool kids since the beginning of its illustrious history.
What started as a strong, practical jacket for workers and gold diggers alike in the early 1900’s, quickly became an iconic fashion statement for men and women, young and old, celebrities and your average joes.
In my quest for a topic for this week’s post, I remembered that this year, 2014, is the hundredth anniversary of the first world war. The Great War as it is better known. Since my love for history is only surpassed by my love of fashion, I thought I would combine the best of both interests.
BB and CC and oh my good golly there are too many choices! Nowadays, there are endless options for makeup. Eyeshadows in liquid, powders and creams, glittery bronzers and dual wands mascara, and the foundations! Oh, the foundations and tinted moisturizers and foams and cover ups. How are we supposed to choose which is the best makeup for our skin?
Ask anyone and they will tell you that I love my curly, red hair. I didn’t used to. As a little girl growing up, I wanted the stick straight, long plaits that all the other girls had. Now as an adult, I love my curls and I appreciate that I am a rare breed. Since only about 2% of the world’s population has red hair, I want to do everything I can to protect my ginger locks.
Even if you’re not a redhead, you should be protecting that lovely hair! So for this month’s spotlight, I am turning to my kitchen for a little extra TLC.
The maxi dress has been in the fashion circuit for so long that it is as classic as the denim jean or leather bomber jacket. These dresses are in it for the duration and all you fashionistas know it. As a girly, dress wearing, style loving fiend, I decided it was time to find the maxi dress that was meant for me!
As I began my search, I realized just how short I am. At 5’2, every dress was swimming on me. It reminded me of the days as a child when I would raid my mom’s closet and try on her clothes.
So what do you do when the maxi dress is taller than you?
Independence Day. The birthday of our great nation. This is a time of celebration. As proud citizens, we break out the grills, crack open the beers, and party like it’s 1776. All I ask of you is that you celebrate in style please!

This summer’s hottest trend has gone tribal. It’s all about the vivid, bold prints and patterns. Everywhere I look, I’m seeing exotic and playful styles. I was determined to jump on this fashion bandwagon, so I got my shopping on for this month’s challenge.
