Remember how I keep saying I’m going to try and step out of my fashion box? That little box that I’m super comfortable in…yeah that one. Well, I’m trying guys and it all starts with wearing more dresses…and prints…and colors other than black. Hey, there’s nothing wrong with any of that, but there are just way too many fab designs out there for me to stay stuck in that box. So, I partnered with Yona New York to show off their Floral Charmeuse Drape Dress and give two lucky readers the chance to win their own! Read more

This holiday season let’s make it all about giving back! I’ve teamed up with Kmart again to help spread the word on an amazing campaign—The Giving Hat.

I couldn’t imagine a better gift idea! And I’m going to give you a chance at the end of this post to win your very own. Read more

I know you’re screaming…”But it’s not even Halloween yet!” and “Why? Why did you have to bring it up?” Believe me, I totally get it. It’s early for a lot of you. You don’t even want to start thinking about the holidays. But, bear with me. I’ve teamed up with Kmart again to bring you 5 reasons why you should start your holiday shopping early—like right now. Here’s a spoiler. One of those reasons includes their No Money Down Layaway (yes, layaway is available online too).

True story…I’ve been taking selfies before selfies were “a thing.” If you left your camera laying around, more than likely you found selfies of me making insane faces. Today, selfies are totally normal. So much in fact, that my good friend and makeup artist extraordinaire Luis published #beautiful by Luis Casco—50 Easy-to-create selfie-ready beauty looks. And I’m going to give you a chance to win your very own autographed copy! Read more

There I was in the store’s toy section. Walking through each aisle commenting how we never had cool toys like this when I was a kid. No, seriously…we didn’t! I had my two-year-old nephew with me as he jumped from toy to toy—wanting everything in sight. We’ve all been there right? Toys hold a power in kids unlike anything else. They have the ability to empower, educate, and inspire their young minds. Read more
I’ve always had a very interesting relationship with bras…more like a lot of bra pet peeves. Because I wear a DD cup size, I’m always shopping the full figured section. If you’re in the same boat, then you know that finding sexy bras for breasts our size is a challenge. And if we do find a style we like, the majority of the time, the fit is horrible. That’s where the pet peeves come in. Like straps digging into your shoulders, under boob, and even breasts spilling out. I don’t know about you, but I can’t feel sexy if I’m uncomfortable. Crème Bralée wants to change all of that by crafting beautiful and supportive lingerie for the full-busted and full-figured woman. Read more

I miss being a kid. Going back to school was always so much fun. Well…mostly because I got to wear my new clothes, carry my cute lunchbox, and stuff my backpack with all kinds of cool accessories. You know, all that comes along with the first day of school. Ahhhhh…the good old days. I still feel like today’s fashion for kid’s and teens is so much cooler than when I was growing up. I was taking a look at the Kmart Back to School page and they have the cutest stuff. Read more

I love my papa with all of my heart. He is such an amazing man, he has a big heart, he’s a hard worker, and he’s unlike any other. No, he’s not perfect and that’s OK. On this Father’s Day, I’m reflecting on our relationship. And it’s so very different today, compared to when I was a kid. We weren’t very close. I guess you can say we didn’t have that typical father and daughter relationship. In fact, it wasn’t until I was in my late teens when that all changed for the better. Read more
