I realize a lot of fashion bloggers post fashion pieces that are way out of the average women’s league. Who wouldn’t want to wear quality fashion pieces that are show stoppers?

So, in this post, I’m going to share some of the top fashion pieces, for this winter 2019, along with their much less expensive counterparts.

Friends, I am so excited to share about a comprehensive skin care system that I will be using for the next several weeks.

What to Wear on Valentine's Day?

Beauty & Fashion, Fashion & Lifestyle

So, you may or may not love Valentine’s Day. But like it or not, it’s coming in a few weeks, and I believe we can choose to make it extraordinary. Last year on Valentine’s Day, I cried a lot. Over a broken heart. I was missing Baby Banana so much. At that time, Scott and I really had no certainty of being forever parents. Anyway, I’m regretful that I didn’t make it a little more special. Valentine’s Day is the day to celebrate love and our loved ones! So this year, I’m wearing something Valentine-sy. I’m eating a big serving of chocolate. And, I’m going to celebrate all the love that surrounds me, every day! So, let’s get to the fun part. What to wear for Valentine’s Day?

How to Take Care of Bleached Hair

Beauty & Fashion, Fashion & Lifestyle

I’ve been coloring my hair, in some shape or form, since I was a teenager. From henna rinses and box dyes to bleaching highlights that recently took me from brunette to a blonde. You’d think I would have lost my hair by now, but by some miracle, my hair still looks fairly thick and healthy. Ok, maybe it’s more than just by miracle. Perhaps it’s just knowing how to take care of bleached hair.
