Fall Trend: Fair Isle Knits

Today, I had the pleasure of being invited to the Topanga Nordstrom Rack in Woodland Hills, California to check out their plus size section. This is probably one of “the” biggest Nordstrom Racks I’ve been too. The plus section had different designers and a few clearance racks! Yay!! If you’re a Southern California girl, I’d definitely check it out. I found a few tops and two cardigan-wrap sweaters. One of them caught my eye the…

Time flies when you’re having fun!

The month of October just flew by didn’t it? I spent some time in South Beach and Orlando, Florida and it feels like a dream. LOL! I can’t believe it’s already November. I’m freaking out over here. It’s going way too fast. I saw a Christmas commercial yesterday and I’ve determined I’m not ready. I didn’t even do anything for Halloween because I was sick. I saw everyone’s costumes and I was very jealous. Speaking of…

Let’s save that for another time. LOL. Instead, I found 15 great deals under $15! I found a…

Shoe Fever: The Lace-Up Boot

The Updated Fanny Pack

Inspired by an obviously cool guy in line at Disney World, I think fanny packs are way underrated. Bear with me for a second… I mean…if you love having pockets, then you should love having everything you need at arms reach, right at the waist, and without having to add that uneeded stress to your shoulders. Right? Are you agreeing with me yet? But…the term fanny packs is soooooo 1980’s. How about we just call them…
