    Beaded Bracelet Stack

    By now I’m sure you know I am a fan of The Styled Collection. They have great quality jewelry for really reasonable prices. And all their pieces are really on trend and even dupes for high end brands like David Yurman cable bracelets and Cartier Love bracelets. A little while back I saw that they started selling beaded bracelets that are perfect for stacking. The Seychelle Bracelets have average size beads with a gold chainlink detail. The Santorini Bracelets are thin bracelets with small beads and have some gold detailing. A variety of colors are available and I wish I could buy them all! In the end I picked out…

    Denim Jumpsuit + Toggle Coin Necklace

    Yesterday was a long day at work with Back to School Night until 8 so I’m hoping today is nice and quick. I’ve had family in town this week and so last weekend we went out to dinner. I wore a denim jumpsuit and my new (to me) toggle coin necklace that has the Greek god Eros on it. Eros is son of Ares and Aphrodite and the Roman equivalent is Cupid, so that’s cool! I decided to wear brown strappy sandals and curled my hair so I felt like I had that 70s vibe going on! Jumpsuit: Abercrombie & Fitch | Sandals: DSW (here) | Necklace: The Styled Collection…

    Preparing For The Winter Wonderland

    Pexels – CC0 License Winter is on its way, to try and avoid a sentence popularized by a famous television show. We can often feel the chill of autumn and feel comforted by its beautiful sepia tones, and then all of a sudden, Jack Frost enters the landscape and the world becomes white and dimly lit.  For some, this is their favorite season. The idea of snow, cold, harsh winds and uncomfortable environments can lead the promise of an indoor cosy experience all the more beauty. There’s hardly anything more comfortable than sitting in a warm home, perhaps next to a fireplace, with a blanket around your legs, a tea…

    Flutter Heart Ruffle Romper

    My photoshoots with Lauren are always fun and the shoot this outfit is from was no exception, but it was a different vibe than we’ve done in the past. I wanted to do some going out/night time looks so we decided to meet up right around sunset to get some of that evening/blue light look. The photos turned out so good! It was definitely worth the sweating to death trying to get changed in the backseat of my car. And worth the nasty bruise I got on my knee which I think must’ve happened from hitting my knee on my center console or something. For my first look I wore…

    Bombay Hair Curling Wand

    I hope your week is off to a good start! I was so tired at work yesterday I felt like I could just fall asleep at any point. But after work I felt much more awake (go figure). I stopped by my condo to see the new appliances that were delivered, went to Home Depot to pick up my light fixtures, and did some other things and didn’t feel nearly as tired as I did during the day. Hopefully today I will not feel so sluggish at work! If you follow my Instagram Stories then you may remember me saying that I’ve been playing around/practicing with a new hair tool for…

    Four Things You Need In Place Before Renovating

    Image via Pixabay – C00 Licence The decisions been made. You’ve looked at moving house, but realised that you love your current location – or you’ve just moved into a home that needs a lot of love to bring it back to life. Or you may have lived there a while and exhausted every other avenue to find more space in your home. Whatever path has led you there, you’re now looking at home renovation as a serious prospect. There’s no doubt that undertaking this kind of project can be extremely daunting – there’s a lot at stake after all. So before you plunge in, what do you really need…

    Leopard Sheath Dress

    This past weekend was such a whirlwind with house stuff, family coming to town, and a family bbq that I actually didn’t have the Sunday night blues because going to work seems like a nice escape from all the craziness! So let’s hope work today is pretty good so I don’t regret today’s desire to go to work. Last week I wore this leopard sheath dress to work. Normally I wouldn’t think to wear a full-on animal print dress to work, but the colors of this dress are so autumnal (one of my favorite words) that I thought it just worked. The base color of the dress is like a…

    Recent Netflix Binge Shows

    In the past 1-2 months I have put a decent dent in my Netflix list of things to watch. Since I’m always so curious to know what other people are watching on Netflix, I thought I’d write up a quick post of what I have watching/what I’ve been watching since late July. First, Supernatural. I have watched Supernatural since the beginning and this fall the final season (season 15!) begins. Although I have been a big fan since it started 15 seasons ago I did fall behind 2 seasons ago. What had happened was I had episodes saved on my DVR to catch up on and lost the episodes and then…

    Metallic Stripe Puff Sleeve Top

    Things are slowly moving along with my condo. I had the hot water heater replaced and my new dishwasher was delivered. I went to pick up samples of quartz for new countertops and floor samples for new vinyl flooring. Hopefully I’ll have some more updates soon! Once things really get done I can do some proper home/home decor posts. Anyway, last month I went in to Express to happily spend my birthday coupon. When I saw this black puff sleeve top with multicolor metallic pinstripes I had to try it on. I loved it immediately and decided to get it. The top has a slightly cropped fit to it so…
