Rounding up my favorite new shoes this Spring

shoe shopping - put some spring and summer in your step

Shoes are definitely one (or two) of my things. I get stopped - everywhere - by people to ask about my shoes. My favorite new shoes this season are all eye-catchers and they're proving comfortable and versatile. An InLinkz Link-up … [Read more...]

Introducing Red Water Designs: Jewelry that celebrates elements and style

jewelry that celebrates the elements and style

I still haven't decided what I think of stones that connect us to the elements. I think I like the concept, the idea that wearing howlite will inspire calm energy is fabulous. But does it work? My tiny jury of one is still out on this one. But that's not to say that I won't try it. I mean, if meaningful gemstones are placed in pretty jewelry, why not wear it? And if they might possibly maybe even a tiny bit inspire a feeling of intuition (sodalite) or courage (fire agate), then I'm better … [Read more...]

Casual everyday Spring style for mostly $50 and under

casual spring updates for mostly under $50

Have you cleaned your closet yet? That's one of my goals this week, to box up the Winter and assess the Spring/Summer. So, naturally, I'm shopping Spring instead. I'm casually filling my carts with items I anticipate needing in my closet. I like to keep Spring and Summer clothes on the cheap -- cute shorts, skirts and t-shirts are generally easy to find for less than $50 this time of year. A few jackets may be a little more. Here's what's filling my carts so far. WHBM Cap Sleeve Rayure … [Read more...]

Introducing Le Tote: unlimited monthly clothing rentals (with a discount code!)

Le Tote offers a new option in box subscriptions in fashion. For $49 each month, you'll receive unlimited clothing rentals. Just open box, wear, and return

About two weeks ago, while I was showing off my latest Stitch Fix, a friend shared that she'd heard of another company to try, Le Tote. She, of course, was weary to send $49 off somewhere in hopes of getting clothes she'd enjoy. I, on the other hand, thought "yay! More fun surprises in the mail!" Get a $25 credit when you join Le Tote through my referral link. Click here! What is Le Tote? I can best describe Le Tote as a cross between StitchFix and Rent the Runway. When you join Le Tote, … [Read more...]

After a 6-month break, I updated my Stitch Fix profile. Here’s what happened.

I updated my Stitch Fix profile. Here's what happened next

I took a break. A 6-month long break. I returned my last StitchFix in September commenting something to the effect of "it was boring" and "I'm so very disappointed." But I'll admit that I've been missing the fun of receiving a box of fun clothing every month or so. And the adventure of trying on and asking opinions of friends. So, two weeks ago, I went back into my StitchFix profile and updated it, thoroughly. Here's what happened next.  Want to give Stitch Fix a try? Follow this link (and … [Read more...]

Wide-leg denim I still love leggings and skinnies, but I am so happy to welcome some variety back into my closet. These lighter … [Read more...]

Victoria Jackson cosmetics: everything I need in the palm of my hand

this little makeup kit contains everything i need - it's perfect for the gym

I love showering at the gym. It's so much easier to finish my workout, jump in the shower and get ready, than rushing home after a workout and taking the time to shower and get ready at home. I find it saves me so much more time at home where there are distractions and decisions like "what should I wear?" When I'm at the gym, I've already decided that and I know I just want to get on with my day. After 8 years of gym showering, I still had one problem, one thing I hated, about showering … [Read more...]

I have to be comfortable to perform. #BeMoreHuman

reebook shoe. Be more human

I like to "hit" the gym about 4 times a week (when I'm lucky, more.) Over the years, I've learned that the shoes you wear do make a difference, as do the clothes. If you're comfortable moving in your clothes, if you're comfortable seeing yourself in the clothing (even better, if you like the way you look in the clothing, because you're very likely looking in the mirror at least part of the time) you'll play better, work better, do better. You'll get a better workout. That's why I don't … [Read more...]
