Fall Tablescape

I’m new to tablescaping, being that this is our first year with an actual dining room table, but I’m working on it. For this season I wanted to decorate using items that would not only make it through October (Halloween) but also on to Thanksgiving. I browsed Pinterest for ideas/inspiration and found this and this […]

High Five for Friday

Well it’s officially fall and I couldn’t be happier. Crisp, chilly mornings and warm afternoon sunshine. Apples are abundant and farmer’s markets are better than ever. My son took a field trip to a local orchard and has been filling me in on the in’s and out’s of apples all week. In case you were […]

Make your own Oreo

Oreo’s are one of my favorite kind of cookie. I swear I start eating from the pack and my husband needs to pry it out of my hands. I knew I wanted to try this recipe when I came across it on Smitten Kitchen. They don’t taste exactly like an oreo (at least mine don’t), […]

Making Color Work for You: Part 3

Ok friends, we’re now onto the third week of learning how to make color work for you. Last week I led you through the process of determining whether you are a cool or warm season. Now we’re going to take this one step further to determine which specific season you fall into. If you decided […]

Change is Inevitable

Change. I love it and I hate it. I know it’s inevitable and in many cases I am grateful and crave it. In others, I wish those winds would just blow on past me. I need a constant reminder to embrace it and accept it regardless of what it may bring my way. Regarding fitness, […]

Jeweled Details

I’m a huge fan of the jewel embellished tops that you often see at JCrew. It’s such an easy way to add some sparkle to an outfit without trying at all. I had my eye on this sweater at JCrew, but when I came across this LOFT sweatshirt I was sold. The comfort of a sweatshirt […]

High Five for Friday

It’s Friday! It’s been a long, fun, exhausting week and I’m looking forward to a great weekend ahead. My husband and I started off this week celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary. I’d marry this man over and over every year if I could, and I’d wear a different dress each time :) I’d never say […]

Apple Snack Cake

By now you probably know that I love trying out new recipes. I have found some great recipes from Real Simple over the past few years and with fall upon us, I decided to try their apple snack cake. I’m having a get together this evening and thought it would be a great addition to […]

Making Color Work for You: Part 2

Welcome to week 2 of making color work for you (here’s week 1 if you missed it). This week we’re going to start the process by determining whether you are a warm (Spring, Autumn) or cool (Summer, Winter) season. In general, warm palettes should have you envisioning warm desert like areas, ie brown sand, burnt oranges, […]

Shoe Talk

This season I am very much looking forward to wearing my boots, booties and suede pumps, but during the week you are likely to find me in a more casual/comfortable option. I’m usually running here and there (not fun in pumps), taking my shoes off and on (not fun in boots), and trekking many miles […]
