5 Things to Know Before Redesigning Your Blog

Calling all bloggers – do you want to redesign your blog? After a year of seriously blogging, I set out to redesign my blog. As you can see, now it looks great. But it was a serious undertaking, even though I wasn’t the one who redesigned it. Here’s five things to know before redesigning your…

Falling in Love with Gaiam Yoga Pants

I always feel happiest on my yoga mat. It’s where I get the sweatiest, it’s where I feel the most at peace, and it’s likely the only place my brain is finally quiet. So what motivates me to throw myself into a hot room for 60 minutes and sweat my tush off? Because it’s fun…

The Best White Skirt for Summer

Okay, ladies, this skirt right here is a game changer. This is the best white skirt I’ve ever tried on. I was all about finding a tulle skirt this summer. From Etsy to Nordstrom, I was searching like a mad woman. Unfortunately, I realized tulle itches, um, really really bad. Scratch that (literally). I scored…

Sponsored Ad: Back to School with Abercrombie & Fitch Jeans

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Abercrombie & Fitch for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I’ve been a huge fan of Abercrombie & Fitch jeans since high school, mostly because they make your butt look GOOD.

Vintage, I love you.

Most people who know me, know that I spend a good amount of time perusing vintage stores across the country. Some of my best finds have come from vintage stores, from Lanvin to a fox fur coat (I did it before Macklemore did). I scored this vintage dress, which I suspect is from the 1970s,…

Every once in a while I’ll stumble upon someone whose creative work really inspires me. Currently I’m lusting over Mikael Jansson, a fashion photographer who most recently shot Lupita N’yongo’s Vogue cover spread. After immediately wondering who shot it, I noticed it was Mikael Jansson – and he’s awesome. Sorry Testino, I might be over…

Our Crazy Extravagant Prom Photo Shoot

My friend Candice asked me recently if I could do her stepdaughter Perrie’s prom makeup. I, of course, said yes, because I remember my prom being kind of *meh* but I’m always excited to see what gorgeous gowns teenagers are wearing these days. Candice then asked if we could snap a few photos of Perrie…

12 One-Piece Bathing Suits That Won’t Cause a Nip Slip

Over the weekend, I visited my friend’s neighborhood pool. Being from Michigan, I’m still getting use to the idea that you can visit pools before July, let alone have one dedicated to a neighborhood. I rolled up in my one-piece (because one-pieces are hella chic and because I like chocolate chip cookies) and then quickly…
