Heading into 2019 with Confidence and a New Attitude!

Fashion & Lifestyle, Foster Care & Family

I know that New Year’s Resolutions can be corny and ineffective. I’ve read that 80% of them fail by February! That’s not a very promising statistic. I also read that in order to truly make a lasting improvement (like a habit) it has to be repeated for 60 days. So, if we can just keep a commitment until the end of February, we can make 2019 a successful year!

Beauty & Fashion, Fashion & Lifestyle

Hey, there! So, you may know that I am on vacation from blogging. (Until next week.) But, I wanted to put this blog post together because the Nordstrom Half-Yearly sale is going on right now. And, it ends on January 2nd. If you’re a Nordstrom lover, like myself, you know that there are only two sales a year! The Anniversary Sale (in July) and the Half-Yearly Sale (end of December). So, I decided to round up my TOP TEN picks to help you identify some of the best of the best deals. Items that are not only on sale, but great accents, possibly necessities, for your wardrobe!

The Ultimate Men's Gift Guide

Fashion & Lifestyle, Travel & Leisure

You would think it’s easier to shop for men. They’re supposedly more laid back and less complex. And yet, every year, I struggle to find the perfect holiday gift for my husband, Scott. Sometimes, we’ll joke around and I’ll remind him how easy it is to shop for me! “I would love anything from Nordstrom, Loft, Anthropologie, Kendra Scott, Lagos, etc.” But, Scott is super picky and prefers to buy things himself. Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of research on unique men’s gift ideas. I discovered a bunch of  things that have more originality. As of today, Scott does not own anything, on this list. But, I think he’d love anything that falls into his category. Therefore, I’m calling this The Ultimate Men’s Gift Guide. Because if Scott would love it, I’m sure your man will, too!

Popular Tech Products of 2018

Fashion & Lifestyle, Travel & Leisure

I’m on a roll creating gift guides for the 2018 holiday season! Most recently, I’ve been doing research on some of the most popular tech products (of 2018), with the highest ratings. What do they all have in common? They all require recharging. And, they all add a little extra (information, a service, simplicity, etc.) to our lifestyles. Turns out, most of these items could be well suited for even the non-techie person, in your life. I know that I’ll be adding some of these popular tech products, to my holiday shopping list, for certain! 

Long Weekend in Vegas ~ Here's How We Spent our 72 Hours!

Fashion & Lifestyle, Travel & Leisure

Scott and I just got home from a long weekend in Las Vegas. He surprised me with Celine Dion tickets, for my birthday. (Back in September.) I was a little concerned that it would be too much to travel to Las Vegas for a concert. Neither one of us wanted to spend too much money or run out of time to get our money’s worth. So, we agreed on the highlights we both wanted to see and do, and took it from there. Best of all? We did not break the bank. So, before you head out to Vegas for a long weekend, have a look to see how we spent our 72 hours! 

Unique and Special Gift Ideas for the Hostess

Food & Home, Travel & Leisure

My mom always taught me, Never go to someone’s home empty handed! I will admit, I haven’t always been as creative nor even as thoughtful as I’d have liked. Too often, I’ll just grab a bottle of wine, which is always a safe way to go. (Even if the host does not drink it, she will have it on hand for guests.) Ideally, I like to bring something homemade. But, I don’t always have time for that. Lately, if and when I see something priced well or on sale that I like, I’ll grab it and keep it on hand. In this post, I’m going to share some gift ideas for the hostess that are unique and special! And, not too expensive.

Fall Favorites ~ 2018

Fashion & Lifestyle

Hey Girlies! Last Fall, I started (or at least attempted to start) a seasonal blog post containing my current, favorite things. Somehow, it dropped off my radar. So I never did post a winter, spring, nor summer post. SORRY! If you recall, Baby Blue arrived last fall. And, we still had Baby Berry for a few months. I think that about explains itself. LOL So, here we go again. I’m sharing my favorite things, this season. From food items to home decor, my favorite book, DUPES, beauty and fashion items, baby products, and more. 

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.
