The Perfect Snack

Happy Halloween everyone! As you are sure to be surrounded by candy for the next week (longer if you’re taking kids trick-or-treating tonight as we are) today I’d like to share with you a quick, no bake, healthy snack. This recipe for Energy Bites is fairly popular on Pinterest and I have been making them […]

Budget Talk

Okay friends, today I am going to chat about what can be a sensitive topic (for me especially), and that’s budgets. The word alone makes me feel cringe and feel restricted, but life really isn’t about having it all is it? I do have a love for fashion and decorating and shopping in general, but […]

Keeping baby warm…

…and healthy! That’s every parents’ goal as we go through these chilly to frigid months, right? As you well know, or will soon figure out, life is no fun at all when a child is sick. Keeping them warm and bundled is step number one and I have a handful of items that will come […]

Playing Dress-Up

Although it’s true that I enjoy styling the ‘everyday’ outfit, I’ll jump at the chance to get dressed up for an event. We attended a friend’s wedding this past weekend and although I had initially planned on renting a dress, well, plans changed. But I do trust your opinions, believe me ;) I found this […]

High Five for Friday

Happy Friday, all! This week marks the week that I broke out my wool coats for the first time this season. I love them, but I wasn’t exactly ready for them just yet! We also had our first trick or treat outing of the year at the Penn State All Sports Museum. Players from various […]

Bold Lips

If you follow my blog regularly, you’ve probably noticed that red is not a shade I am typically drawn to. Most shades are not in my color palette as a Summer (click here for reference) and I find it tricky to find the appropriate cool shade that works on me. This particular lip-color, Stila’s liquid lipstick in […]

Guess where you can find me today…

…guest posting over at my good friend Becky’s blog, Mommy in Heels! Feel free to browse around while you’re there. Becky has great style and is always an inspiration to me. Watch out, you might get hooked! See you back here tomorrow where you’ll see me with the boldest lips I’ve ever had! Such a daredevil […]

Mini Pumpkin Pies

If you recall, I posted about various pumpkin recipes I had my eye on here a few weeks back. Well, I came across these mini pumpkin pies on Pinterest and their simplicity won me over. Pumpkin pie is one of my favorites, and these quick mini pies have been hitting the spot (yes, hitting, not […]

Animal Print

Animal prints are growing on me more and more and if there were perfect seasons to wear them they’d probably be fall and winter. I wanted to lighten up this dark top a bit so I threw a light pink button-up underneath which instantly softened the look. My girlfriend happened to lend me some of […]

High Five for Friday

Each time Friday comes around I am shocked at how quickly it has once again appeared.  The season that I love to get the most out of happens to correspond with the same time the days get shorter and shorter. Not fair! I also realize time is flying by the fact that we already had […]
