Stylish Monday – How We Do Spring in Style!

Hi everybody! It’s time for another fabulous Link-Up showcasing my fabulous blogging friends! Spring gives us a fresh start doesn’t it?

I’ve noticed quite a few trends for this Spring including strappy sandals, snake and animal print, neon colors, bright florals, bootcut jeans, and this year’s Pantone color – Coral.

Stylish Monday Link Up – Go Red!

Stylish Monday Link Up – Go Red!

February is the month of hearts. Valentine hearts. Sweet hearts. Candy hearts. Chocolate hearts. And most importantly, women’s hearts! Did you know that heart disease is the number one killer of women? My paternal grandmother passed away from a heart attack at the age of 64. That’s sobering news for me. I had the supreme joy of being diagnosed with elevated blood pressure last year. Not sure if it’s the stresses of my job, my genetic makeup or a combination of both, but I had to add a daily dose of medicine to my morning vitamin routine, but I’m glad I caught it early. Perhaps my grandmother didn’t? That little bit of news shifted my view of diet and exercise from a focus on my figure  to a focus on my life and health. So this month’s ‘Go Red for Women’ campaign affects me personally. I’m thrilled to join in and take part in this Monday’s style linkup with some incredibly fashionable women who will be wearing their heart’s on their sleeves and showing you how GOOD red looks on them!

January Stitch Fix Reveal

January Stitch Fix Reveal

Happy New Year y’all! I don’t do resolutions. I fail every time. So this year, I optimistically created a to-do list of things I want to accomplish. I crack myself up…but, so far so good. One of my priorities is to get my closet under control, so I’ve gone on a ‘shopping diet’. I’ve been sharing my progress in my Instagram posts, as I shop my closet instead of stores each day. I have chosen to keep receiving my Stitch Fix boxes though. I just look forward to them too much! With all the excitement of the New Year, holidays, company and then going back to work, I completely forgot to update my note to my Stitch Fix stylist. So I was a little apprehensive when I got my shipment notice from Stitch Fix. Want to see how it went? Read on!
