In my last post about wedding fashion, I talked about wedding jewelry with the assumption that you would choose the traditional jewelry consisting of diamonds, but I completely forgot about colored diamonds and gemstones as options.

How Spanx and Pretty Underwear Can Boost Your Confidence

While I promote having a healthy body image and being proud of what you have, I’m not perfect. Ever since I found out about the “secret” to looking slimmer, I’ve been a fan of Spanx and how it can help with feeling more confident when you’re wearing body hugging dresses and outfits. I personally find it uncomfortable to suck in my stomach for hours, so wearing shapewear has actually served as a reminder to work on being more fit and lose that excess belly fat.

With the rise of breast cancer, you have to wonder why so many women are having issues. Sure, it could be genetic, but part of me wonders if it's the type of deodorant that we're using. Although there haven't been any conclusive studies as to whether or not chemicals in deodorants are the cause of breast cancer, the idea of having toxins in your body is still unsettling, especially if you're breastfeeding.

Love Yourself First: Inspiration From Khloe Kardashian

Love certainly has a great deal of power. It is magical. Too often we take it for granted, and other times we are not open to it. We expend alot of energy giving love to others while neglecting to show love to ourselves. We spend a great deal of time picking apart, talking about, and criticizing others when we could spend that time nurturing our own soul and doing the things that make us happy.

My Casual Workday Outfits

I'm fortunate and very grateful to be able to have casual workdays everyday. I live by the wear-what-you-want dress code, so most days you'll catch me wearing a casual dress or skirt and a loose top or t-shirt. It's all about comfort for me. In fact, if I could, I'd gladly go without wearing a bra, but I'd like people to look at my face while they're talking to me!

If there's one thing you absolutely need for a visit to the pool or the beach, it's a pair of cute slip-on sandals or flip flops. There's just no way around it.

Wear Sweaters During the Summer?

Button-Up Cashmere Cardigan

Recently I reorganized my closet so that I could pack away and store my winter clothes - mainly boots and sweaters. The very next day I wake up and it’s gloomy and cold outside. Go figure! However, there were a few light sweaters that I keep readily available exactly for this reason. Having summer sweaters does seem paradoxical, but there are many places and situations in which a sweater is much needed.

5 Simple Ways to Organize Your Makeup and Makeup Tools

Makeup organizing tips

As a beauty blogger I have amassed quite a collection of beauty products, makeup, and makeup tools. It used to be that I could fit all my makeup products in one carrying case, but it’s to the point now that I need to go through and organize everything plus get rid of products that are too old. As I browsed through Pinterest today, I came across so many makeup organization ideas...
