My Personal Style Doesn’t Define Me

curves-and-chaos-personal-style

No, this is not a deja vu. Yes, I’ve written a few times about finding and expressing your personal style. I’ve shared my own tips and even some from my blogger amigas. And no matter what, I always stress the point of wearing what you want and what you love.  But, you should also know that how you dress and what you wear does not define who you are as a person. No matter how many times someone feels the need to remind you. Read more

So, I asked her if she wanted to do a review and she said yes. I love this girl! Take a look at her video review below and let me know what you think in the comments section below.

Dogeared / Pouches with a Message

But, in today’s world I’ll take it where I can get it. And as I was doing a little online shopping today and I came across these really cool Dogeared pouches. Read more

I talk to my mom on the phone almost every day. I can honestly say, each conversation takes on a life of it’s own. We don’t always agree on things and we will sometimes butt heads. I love her beyond words, but man we are so much alike it’s scary. It seems like every time I open my mouth, I say something and I sound just like her. In fact, I think I might actually be turning into her.  Read more

Weekend Wear

If you haven’t noticed, most of my outfits consist of blue denim jeans. What can I say? It’s an obsession. I love wearing them more than anything. Maybe I should do one of those dress challenges? Anyways, this past weekend I changed it up a little bit and threw on a pair of white denim. You know, cause it’s spring. Baby steps people. I also had a chance to wear this Rachel Pally top I picked up at her recent warehouse sale. Read more

OK, not the craziest confession, but it sounds weird admitting that. All we used growing up was bar soap. In fact, I don’t even know why I stopped using it in the first place. Well, looks like it may be back in my bathing routine since Yardley London Nourishing Elements Artisan Soap sent me a few bars to try out. Read more
