I have been a loyal fan of a waist belt since I can remember. My friends in college always marveled at the fact that I had more statement belts than I did earrings. In my opinion, there’s no single more versatile item in your closet that can take just about ANY outfit and make it better than a good belt.
My work wardrobe is hands-down my most important one. My office is certainly creative when it comes to work attire, but there are still plenty of days where I need to be a bit more buttoned-up and still want to feel fashion-forward. I have seen SO much good work attire lately, I had to put some of my favorite pieces together for you guys.
I love a good weekend in Las Vegas. Beyond all of the normal sin-city stigmas attached to Las Vegas, I think the worst is that too many people seem to think the only acceptable outfits are sequin-clad, tight and short. Yikes. Having a sense of what’s fashion-forward shouldn’t go out the window because you might be heading to a show or club, am I right?
What an honor to be able to contribute some fashion-forward fall finds to the always-beautiful and in-the-know hyper local publication, The Place.
The lineup below has some square-toed options (ALL the rage right now), cowboy boots (again, all the rage with this trend too), snakeskin (yes this trend is still going very strong), leopard, neutrals and everything in between. I truly believe that boots are the make-or-break element to any good Fall/Winter outfit, so buy a pair you’re going to be super pumped to wear now before they’re sold out!
Mango is serving up some majorly excellent pieces for the Fall. There are great outfits for work, for casual weekends, weddings, football BBQ’s and date nights. I knew when I visited the website recently and wanted to buy half of the items in the new season collection that is was time for a blog post for you guys. There really is something for everyone in these finds!
I’m SO excited about our upcoming trip to Oil Nut Bay in the British Virgin Islands. It’s our sixth anniversary and although I’m 100% sure we’re going to miss Teddy I’m also very excited about some time to relax and de-stress from the hustle of our every day lives. Matt found this gem of a resort (he is the ultimate travel planner, I love that man) and I have a feeling we are going to be obsessed. But - what’s a fantastic island escape without the outfits to accompany your fresh tan? NOTHING!
There’s a reason Nordstrom is my one and ONLY department store credit card and it has everything to do with the annual Anniversary Sale. I love this sale. I really have gotten some of my most favorite pairs of designer boots, updated pairs of denim, sweaters and coats from the sale over the last few years. Something about knowing that you’re saving money on NEW items is so gratifying, don’t you think?
Y’all - ASOS has been really on top of its game this summer. If you aren’t a typical ASOS shopper, then I think it’s time to give the retailer a look. From sundresses to swim, they bring a cool aesthetic with an affordable price tag to their own designs and stock a number of trendy brands as well.
After so many of you asked, I figured it was high time to discuss one of my favorite things… nail polish colors! In this post you’ll find five of my go-to colors I seem to reach for each Fall, and you’ll also see five options I’m excited to try. Is there anything better than a fresh mani?
Check out my video on my InstagramTV page for the full video of how I do my makeup if I’m getting ready for a night out. Here are all of the products I use in the video!
There are a few recent Sephora purchases I’ve made that are absolute favorites. They’re GOLD, I tell ya! Highlights include an insanely amazing bronzer brush, Vitamin C serum, a great face moisturizer and a holy-moly-this-stuff-WORKS cellulite cream. Yeah, you’re going to want to read this one!
A quick daily makeup routine that makes you feel polished but not overly made-up should be in your wheelhouse. Morning makeup application definitely doesn’t need to be stressful or overthought. I’ve pared my routine down just to the basics, and can always skip a step or two if I’m even more pressed for time and it’s not a big deal.
In honor of the Instagram giveaway I'm hosting with my friends from my fabulous salon Hairfolk, I wanted to give you guys the rundown on a few of my favorite Oribe products that I use religiously!
Maybe some people get the best, most glowing and radiant skin of their lives during pregnancy, however that has most definitely NOT been the case for me. At around 10 weeks, battling the worst acne I've ever had in my life and what I described as a "grey" complexion, I was desperate for something to help me look and feel like any version of my old self.
I'm basically of the opinion cult beauty/skincare brand Glossier can do no wrong. So when I was perusing the site to grab a new tube of Boy Brow (the most amazing eyebrow product EVER) and noticed a shine-reducing, makeup-setting powder called Wowder, I was intrigued.
I can spot a cheap eyeshadow with no color payoff and sparkle instead of shimmer (um, no thanks) from a mile away. So when I find a good eyeshadow, or eyeshadow palette in this case, I am SO excited to share it!
When it comes to sunless tanner, believe me when I say I've pretty much tried them all. Now that it's summer and we're all baring more and more skin (thanks, heat wave) I thought I'd share my picks with you!
What an incredible honor is was to have our home featured (and on the cover… whaaaa?!?) in Birmingham Home & Garden Magazine. The folks that run Birmingham Home & Garden are so talented and are the best at spotting great places, so we felt beyond fortunate that they thought our home was cool enough to deserve a spot in the pages amongst the other insanely beautiful homes and interiors.
I don't know about you, but I've spent a significant amount of time looking for the perfect robe. I want my robe to be something that I truly look forward to wearing whether I'm getting ready for my day or relaxing after a long one. So my excitement couldn't be contained when I found one that meets all of my requirements plus some... meet "The Robe."
Bermuda is Zika-free, beachy, and only a short flight from Birmingham. We've heard such great things from friends and are even renting an amazing little smart car called a Renault Twizy. Now, on to the fun part... what I'm packing!
How do I even begin to describe how glad I am that I made the jump - and the expenditure - and just bought the Ava bracelet when we decided it was time to start trying to conceive last year. I'll try to count the reasons in the (short novel, sorry) below. There's a code for $20 off at the end of the post, too!
It's that time of year... the perfect time to buy a neutral-hued pair of booties that will transition you through the spring well into summer!
I am not one of those people who can fall asleep easily on a flight. However, armed with a few creature comforts, I've learned I can not only sleep on a long-haul flights but also take advantage of all of the down time with some excellent products to counteract all of the dry air that's wreaking havoc on my skin.
Sometimes you have to admit when you've been holding onto something for too long. This year, in my case, it's my beach bag that's my ball-and-chain. Here are some of my favorites you can upgrade to now!
Without a doubt LAKE pajamas are the most comfortable pj’s you’ll ever own. Made with 100% Pima cotton, this short set (pictured above in Pine) is luxuriously soft and simultaneously super breathable.
I often find myself in situations where I'm running from the gym to an errand or to grab a casual dinner, so you always need a few items on hand. Here's what's typically in my gym bag!
