If you’re reading this, I’m a little jealous of you right now. I hope you know how truly blessed you are… I loved every single second of being pregnant. Every. Single. Second. I was deliriously happy. I never got nauseous.  think it was God’s way of giving me a break after 6 stressful years of fertility […]

I’m just going to be honest here. I am tired. All. The. Time. Maybe it’s because I’m a brand new homeschooler or because I have two very active daughters or because I’m getting older by the second or because I am running an online business but I am pretty much always exhausted. How’s that for a pep talk? […]

I’ll admit it. Clothes can be confusing. Stop me if you think that you’ve heard this one before. When I was 12, back in the 1980s (yes, I am that old… thanks for not noticing!) I found a plaid power suit in Vogue and begged my immensely talented mom to make one for my 50-pound […]

  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. My days are numbered. I have passed the age when most women have succumbed to sensible hair, and I’m not far from the age where they also decide to wear sensible shoes. I haven’t given in to either, yet, because long thick hair and high heels […]

I’d like to say that I have a thing for dresses because I’m so feminine, but that would be a half-truth. Sure, there’s that, but also, I’m short. This spring, however, pants are hard to ignore, with designers sending so many new styles down the runway, reinventing a closet staple and creating oodles of shopping temptations. Which is […]

  I came across a great article in Who What Wear in which Michael Kors said that the reason most women don’t have anything to wear is because their wardrobe is out of balance. I’ll allow him to explain: “70 percent of the clothes you own should be meat and potatoes. 30 percent should be […]

Shannon Wollack, founder of LA-based design firm LIFE.STYLE, shares the secrets to her personal style.

If you want to know a little bit about Shannon Wollack, sneak a peek at her Instagram account. While mine is filled with badly lit selfies and cute pics of my girls (although you should still totally follow it!), hers looks like the pages of an impossibly chic design magazine. Maybe that’s because Shannon, a former fashion […]

Designer Alicia Bell and her daughter, Penelope, who inspired the line Little Bell.

Let’s face it: My time is running out. Lola will be 9 in less than two months, and the other day, I think I detected an eye roll. I ignored it because for now, she is still mine, all mine. (A little bit of Kevin’s too, but mostly mine.) I still get bedtime snuggles and morning […]

I live live live in dresses. Sure, I wear shorts and jeans and other, more casual options, but when it comes to easy spring and summertime style, nothing compares to a dress. They’re easy, versatile and comfortable, and they’re my go-to on hot days. It’s not that I’m lazy, but, okay, well it is because […]

Spring means shopping. Look it up. In some states, it is the law. And for me, March equals spring. Never mind the blustery winds whipping outside your window. Just flip open your laptop and shop soft, summery colors, striking swimsuits and sassy sandals (I promise this alliteration was accidental!) all without leaving your cozy couch. […]
