4 Easy Summer Outfit Formulas

July 24th, 2017 by

Is it just me, or are we at that point in the summer where we’ve worn all the cute new outfits on repeat and they’re getting a little tired. So what’s a girl to do? Buy all new outfits! (Just kidding, although the sales do beckon this time of year.) The next best thing to […]

Fun Fab Summer Finds Under $100

July 20th, 2017 by

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but everything summer is on sale or sold out. Everything. I was in Target yesterday and what was left of the Fourth of July decor was on clearance, and signs of fall filled the store. I saw scarves along with the swimsuits, school supplies near the pool supplies. And […]

How to Shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

July 18th, 2017 by

Sales are fraught with disaster. They are full of potential and opportunity and the possibility of heartbreak, much like trying out a new hairstylist for the first time. It can either go very, very well or it can be a disaster. (The no-woman’s-land in between is so boring, don’t you think?) In the case of […]

How to Wear Shorts

July 17th, 2017 by

This is the summer when I officially admit that I am no longer 25. Everything is bugging me, you guys. Everything. The hotness and the dryness and then the wetness and now the hotness again. My poor hair. And my poor family, that has to live with me and my poor hair. And although I’m clearly […]

How to Wear LuLaRoe

June 9th, 2017 by

I kind of pride myself on being a know-it-all, but the nice kind, you know? Not the obnoxious kind. I always need like to be the first to turn people onto things. I knew about Tory Burch long before all of my friends starting buying the Reva flat. Ditto with Jack Rogers. And Zara. I even hosted […]

The 5 Best Natural Deodorants

June 6th, 2017 by

I’m not going to lie. I stink at a lot of things. Sports. Neatness. Burpees. Flying without panicking. Sports. Parallel parking. Also, sports. I literally stink at all of these things. But I don’t literally stink, you know? And for that I can thank the natural deodorants on this list. I have to admit that I’ve […]

Wear This To Look Old

June 5th, 2017 by

I have been forced to borrow reading glasses from friends twice in the last few days. Twice. Once to read the miniscule words on a restaurant menu, and another time to read the instruction manual on a piece of clothing. (Yes, some clothes require assembly, and like all instruction manuals, the writing is tiny). Crazy, right, […]

How to Be Fashionable (Not Frumpy!)

April 12th, 2017 by

The frumps are for real, folks, and they’re contagious. Let’s put an end to them, shall we? It’s so much easier then you might think. Trust me. We can do this. It’s as simple as choosing one thing over another. The cute top over the frumpy top. The cute shoes over the frumpy shoes. The […]

What to Pack for a Disney Vacation

April 5th, 2017 by

We live about an hour away from Disney World, so we generally choose the least crowded times to go. I’ve seen Disney in 90 degree heat on a crowded mid-summer day, and I’m not eager to repeat that experience. That was years ago, however, and my Disney game has improved dramatically since then. I know […]

What to Pack for a European Vacation

April 4th, 2017 by

Last time we took a family vacation to Europe, Lola was 4 and Eva was 2. After months of planning and preparation, we arrived, ready for everything. Except international travel with a toddler. At one point, I made this desperate plea on Facebook: “I’m never going anywhere with Eva again. Ever. Please send our stuff.” […]
