Bumbrella the Hip Slip

0

Do you have that one dress hanging in your closet that you just NEVER wear because its just too sheer but you can’t seem to bring yourself to wear a slip? (Last time I wore a slip, I think I was 7-years old and it was my First Communion.) I have that one dress. I bought this awesome dress over five years ago and wore it once for a work event. I was so self-conscious the whole evening because it was white, that I never wore it again. It was an expensive dress so it pains me to never wear it! Enter Bumbrella,…

Review: SoCozy Hair Products for Kids

0

Thank you to SoCozy for sponsoring this post. All opinions expressed are mine. Last year, our then-5th grader decided she wanted to go to sleepaway camp. We did a ton of research, received a lot of direct mail from all these camps and landed on one that we felt was perfect for the girls. I thought that was the hard part of the process. What I didn’t realize was all the STUFF we had to purchase! From sweatshirts, to soccer shin guards to shampoos, we had to buy it all. It’s like a rehearsal for college! Luckily, the one thing I didn’t have…

At-Home Spa Day with Panasonic #Snowvember + GIVEAWAY

16

Busy moms, busy parents. What to give them? The gift of “me-time”. A gift certificate to a spa is always nice but then it’s over and done with in a couple of hours. How about giving them the gift of “me-time” that can keep on giving? So, here’s the deal: a massage at a spa can come and go in an hour, or if you’re lucky two-hours; a facial is about 45-minutes and a wax is about 30 minutes. But this season, give your loved ones an at-home spa day with Panasonic products. Panasonic Handheld Massager: So, my husband LOVED trying this…

Review of the UGG Chancery Boots

1

My UGG boots are about 4 years old: they’ve got a rip in them, the fleece inside is a little matted down, but it keeps my toes WARM. And with the way the Polar Vortex has been visiting the United States lately, I won’t be throwing them out anytime soon. BUT, I needed something newer looking than my 4-year old UGG classic boots, but something that kep my feet warm and dry. This post contains affiliate links for easy shopping. I went shopping with the intention of buying a new pair of UGG Classic boots, and using my old pair for…

How to Make Your Gel Manicure Last Longer

1

I’m a little late to the gel manicure party. Gel manicures have been around for several years and I had only gotten my first gel manicure about 4 weeks ago. I normally never wear color polish on my nails; I like a clear polish for a clean but very understated look. But, I wanted to change things up and went to get a gel manicure. I picked out a Lucky Magazine to guide me through the hottest nail colors for the winter. Lucky told me to go towards the deep wine colors, so I chose a burgundy called “Masquerade” – and with…

Textures and Details with the CAbi Collection

1

Audrey McClelland, Vera Sweeney and Nicole Feliciano invited me to attend a Fall 2014 CAbi Fashion Show. I’ve heard and read about CAbi but never went to a show before. First of all, what a pleasant surprise I had when I saw a familiar face from my corporate marketing days. The creative director of CAbi, Daniele Trussardi, and I worked with several years ago when he and I were both on the same creative team: he in creative direction and I in direct marketing. Small world! You can see his genius work below. Carol Anderson started CAbi, which stands for…

Fall Style with the Pure Jill Collection from J.Jill

2

I’ve been reading one of my favorite childhood books, Anne of Green Gables, by L.M. Montgomery, and one of my favorite quotes from the book is, “I’m so glad that I live in a world where there are Octobers.” Between the apple & pumpkin picking, shopping for Halloween costumes and baking my favorite pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, October can’t get any better. But it can. J.Jill has launched its Pure Jill Collection this fall and it is perfect for falling temperatures. I fell in love with the boucle textures in their Pure Jill Plush Collection. The Plush Cardigan is versatile:…

How to Wear White in the Fall

0

Wearing white post-Labor Day has not been as controversial as it has been when I was growing up where the rule was pretty much tough.  Wear white after Memorial Day. Don’t wear white after Labor Day. Now that the weather is pretty unpredictable, I’m thinking anything goes, especially with fashion. Here’s my take on how to wear white in the fall. This post contains affiliate links for easy shopping! I’m a denim girl all the way. I love my boyfriend jeans, my skinny jeans, my ripped jeans. So, instead of wearing white jeans, I opted to wear this textured white…

Fall Fashion: What to Wear on a Date Night or Girls Night Out

What to wear on a date night or a girls night out? For me, that usually calls for a chic but comfortable look. As you can tell from my fashion posts, I tend to go towards trendy but comfy.

Best of StriVectin Beauty Products

0

Ever since I turned the Big 4-0, I’ve decided to fight, kicking and screaming against those terrible wrinkles. I did go to the dermatologist and asked them to write a prescription for Retin-A. I used it for about 3-4 months, but it really is too aggressive for my skin. (I do use Retin-A about once a week.)  But, what I’ve found is that I like using StriVectin products simply because it’s not as tough on my skin and I’ve found a noticeable difference. This post contains affiliate links for an easy shopping experience.  All products combine state-of-the-art anti-aging ingredients with StriVectin’s…
