15 Summer Sandals Under $15

It’s been a while since I’ve done a “15 under $15″ post. I don’t know why? I love these! I do know that the shopping budget this summer is real. No matter how much I want to get out there and spend money, I have to be smart about the purchases I make. Especially, since the hubby and I have decided to buy a house. This is adult territory! This means shopping has to be under control. Read more

I’ve always known that her favorite color is red and that she loves the bling and sparkle of jewelry. But, there’s always a need to find her that perfect Mother’s Day gift. Even though I know she’ll love whatever I decide to give her.

My Obsession with Christmas Begins…

My eBay Collections were curated as part of my collaboration with eBay.

It’s true. I’m just a tad obsessed with Christmas. In fact, I’m listening to my holiday themed radio station, a reindeer mug filled with coffee, and my tiny Charlie Brown Christmas tree blinking in the background. I may or may not be wearing Santa slippers. Sigh…I love this time of year, more than any other. Even if it’s 70 degrees outside, you can’t crush my holiday spirit! As a kid, I used to lay under my grandma’s Christmas tree staring up at the beautiful lights and decorations. Yes, the obsession started early. Read more

Bloomingdale’s Press Preview (OOTD)

It officially opened on Friday, November 8 in the city of Glendale, California (Los Angeles area). Read more

10 Favorites: Torrid

It’s time for another one of my 10 Favorites posts. And this time it’s kind of a “fall must-have” kind of list from Torrid. There picks would be perfect for a range of looks. And that’s always what I look for—pieces I can wear more than once. I can’t believe I actually chose some camo print…being that I spent a few years in the military and I normally don’t wear it.  Read more

Thrifter’s Delight at Savers Thrift Stores

Have I ever told you how much I love thrifting? I really do! I grew up shopping thrift stores. My mom even worked at one. She used to bring home the greatest stuff. I guess you can say it’s in my blood. It’s just unfortunate that most stores make finding plus sizes really hard. I had almost given up hope, until I visited Savers Thrift Store in Austin, Texas!

Style Trend: Black and White Stripes
