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!"

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...]

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...]

Can we please transition into Spring 2015 already?!

chloe + isabel spring 2015 collection

I know. I know it's only February, but, darn it. I am forcing myself to think Spring because I am so very tired of the cold, frigid days and nights. How? Well, a few Springy accessories certainly help. And Chloe + Isabel happened to launch our Spring line last week so I am thrilled to share a few of my favorites with you. Within our Spring collection are seven mini collections. I received samples from 4 of the collections and share them with you in these videos. I invite you to visit my … [Read more...]

The only Valentine’s gifts you need to give this year

valentine's day gifts for her under $60

We all know Valentine's Day is the perfect opportunity to express your love, but when you're gifting the one you truly love, you don't want to go overboard (cheesy!) with 100 roses (because, really, who wants to turn her home into a rose shop? plus. Flowers die.) Guys, what she really wants is something small that she can wear with love, but she also doesn't want you to break the bank. (I mean... break it for her birthday. But Valentine's Day? You don't need to spend tons.) I shopped my Chloe + … [Read more...]

Graced by Grit: Where comfort-wear and active-wear mix

Graced by Grit relax and recover top -- a warm top you can from your pilates class to dinner with family

Despite my amazing collection of accessories and my fabulous closet-full of clothing, this cold winter, I find myself in gym clothes. I'm giving in to the ease of pulling on the Yoga pants and keeping them on after Pilates class. I'm falling for the comfort of a sports bra. I'm all about the running shoes. But, herein lies the problem. I still like to look dressed. So I want to be warm, comfortable and look like a million bucks, even in if I'm really in my gym-wear. How to do it? … [Read more...]

The best winter snow boots for women 2015

best snow boots

The first Fashion Friday post of the new year... it's becoming a tradition to share that I, once again, am caught in a snowbank without snow boots. Naturally, in looking for the best winter boots for women in 2015, I asked my research team (aka my Facebook friends) to answer the following question: What snow boots do you love so much you'd buy them again? They responded, I ordered. (Gosh, I love the Zappos app and their next day service.) 1 & 2: Sorel Joan of Arctic and Glacy The … [Read more...]
