It’s about that time….when I get antsy for spring. I’m sick of jeans and boots and the whole ORDEAL of getting dressed for a winter day and quite frankly, I could use a tan. I look ill. I long for flip flops, open windows, patio hopping, Summer Shandy, golf outings with my man and, of course, the smell of fresh cut grass everywhere. Of course, days like today (it was 60 degrees!) only encourage my spring-time daydreams. But, a look… Read more »

Happy Friday!! Tonight, while I was completing one of my (rather strange) beauty rituals…I tried to remember where I came up with it! I decided this one stemmed from a trick my mother taught me -gotta love moms! It dawned on me that several of my absolute favorite little beauty tricks were either passed down to me or learned by some trial and A LOT of error. I figured my lovely readers might be looking for a winter pick-me-up for… Read more »

Here are some of my favorite picks for gift giving this… Read more »

There is nothing more gratifying than giving someone you care about a gift that they  LOVE! Unfortunately, finding that gift can be a less than pleasant experience. By “less than pleasant” I mean stressful, pressure filled, crowded, miserable and rash inducing. For real, I’ve worked myself up in such a gift giving tizzy that my body had no choice but to rebel in the form of a rash on my back. Issues, I’ve got lots of them! 😉 So, if… Read more »

I don’t understand pumpkins. How does something that unappealing (those innards are seriously gross people) contribute to the wonder that is pumpkin spice, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bars, pumpkin pudding, pumpkin beer… Seriously, pumpkin never fails.  Usually, by this time of year I have blown entire paychecks on pumpkin spice lattes, I have dove head first into a pan of pumpkin bars, I have made special trips to Village Inn for a slice (okay, sometimes an entire pie) of Pumpkin Cream… Read more »

Follow my blog with Bloglovin   It’s no secret that I like pictures…alright, full disclosure? I LOVE pictures, I’m obsessed with photographs and it is incredibly difficult for me to let a moment go by without capturing it on camera. And while some of my friends and loved ones probably find it incredibly annoying that I am interrupting stories, meals and concerts to snap a quick picture, I truly believe that some day they will thank me. Some day when… Read more »
