#LMMSELFLOVE: Finding your Unicorn Bra

  Can I tell you something? Can you believe I’ve never owned a properly fitted bra? For the past…. Hmmmm for number sake let’s say 20 years, I’ve gone about life, wearing a bra I assumed was my size, and just like the rest of you, upon calling it a day it was the first thing I flung off; because OH GAWD was it uncomfortable.  Over the last few months I’ve been tackling a PRETTY SENSITIVE but rather important subject; self love. Trying to get down to the bottom of why I find it so damn difficult to love myself as is. Breaking down and pushing aside the stereotypes […]

FASHION: LYST is your new shopping buddy

What do you get when you cross a fashion obsessed woman 3 weeks postpartum, who find herself stuck inside most days due to c-section recovery? You get a lyst-addict, that’s what.  I was introduced to lyst as the Pinterest of shopping websites (well then, hello newest obsession!). Where you can save items to a personal board and keep a close eye on them for when, you know… WHEN THEY GO ON SALE! No word of a lie people, this exists. Lyst allows you to save items on a virtual board that you can re-visit again and again and again (as you do). You will be notified of stock alerts, […]

HEALTH: 3 Reasons To Treat Yourself!

1. You’ll be more active; here is how I figure. When you look good, you feel good, we all know that, when you feel good you want to push yourself to continue to feel that way, right? Tasting small victories can go a long way for the body and mind. So in theory spending money to get new active wear you love to get into will only push yourself to get out in it more often. Right? 2. It’s more affordable than ever; quality active wear doesn’t need to put you behind on your mortgage payment, not with how main stream trendy active wear has become. Case […]

FASHION: #RockTheCrop Movement

I posted this to Facebook the other day but felt like it needed far more attention that just a social media rant share. You guys! Can you believe it? Body shaming is still something that goes on in 2015? People still feel the need to judge others choice of clothing solely based on their body type. I’m mean it’s like we’re all in elementary school and our parents still have control over our wardrobes and just how much skin is appropriate. Why is this still happening? And of all people, why did Oprah let this happen in the pages of her magazine? Q: Can I pull of a crop top? A: […]

FASHION: How to CROP this Summer!

SHOP THE LOOK 1.  2.  3.  4. I like to think we can wear anything our heart desires, and this my friends is why I am always on the hunt for ways to make trends work for me (and not against). The past 2 years I have been able to pull off the ever-so-sexy crop top successfully and this is why I wanted to revisit the topic. A little crop top 101 is you will, a nice little reminder on how one with killer curves can pull together a classy look with a crop top. LOOSE & TIGHT Finding the perfect tight dress is really the hard part. For me […]

FASHION: Versatility with Hudson’s Bay

When I get approached to style an outfit, I get excited. But when I’m asked to style a few outfits for a store I shop at faithfully, I get all sorts’ of giddy. Hudson’s Bay asked me to style a few pieces from their INC International Concepts line showing off its versatility; obviously I agreed. Not only do I love Hudson’s Bay and their many clothing lines, but versatility is what I look for in every piece of clothing that enters my wardrobe. My closet is by no means a walk-in my friends, each piece must be chosen carefully and strategically. Let me tell you about a totally inappropriate way […]

FASHION: You’re the SPRING to my step!

We’ve have 3 solid days of sun and I’m just smitten. This streak of weather has me finally believing mother nature that it’s actually Spring. I hit the closet last night and started to weed out the winter wear {no gardening pun intended} and move in my pastels, florals, and dare I say it…. shorts! If you would ask me what I’m most excited for this Spring, I would gladly sit you down and chat your ear off about my favorite shades of blues and pinks, including my recent obsession with slip-on’s, and of course the ease of making a Spring time kimono. I’ll save you the […]

FASHION: Spring is near

Because Fall is nearly over and we can’all use a little wardrobe inspiration for the warmer weather ahead. Am I right or am I right? Nothing beats a washed dark denim, a ridiculously cozy knit, and bracelet wearing boots; I mean it, nothing beats it! Who’s excited to start buying short sleeves and begin baring our skin again? Haul out the tub of body butter we all promised our skin we’d lather it in, and get to it. SHOP THIS LOOK Jeans.  Top.  Sweater.  Boots.  Bag.  Sunnies.
