Hello there friends! I am so sorry I have been MIA for a month! Life has been a little hectic around these parts!  I have been working on something that I have wanted to do for a couple of years now and I am finally doing it! You will find out what it is in a few weeks and I am beyond excited to share!! I was also out for a week because I was chosen for a sequestered jury on a criminal case.  Let’s just say that was the most interesting thing I have ever experienced in my life.  I am really glad to be catching up and feeling normal. So enough about me!  I want to tell you about an awesome shoe brand…

Hey there! I just have to show you guys all the outfits I created with this awesome leopard slip dress.  I purchased this at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and it is my favorite item from the sale right now! I think this is something that any woman could wear and in any season.  If you are not into the leopard print it was also available in a floral. I think you could also find a slip dress that is a solid color and it would be just as cute and versatile. I hope this Flat Lay to Life-Styled: Leopard Slip Dress post will give you some inspiration on how to put some outfits together with any midi dress like this one. One of the biggest…

Hey guys! I recently tried a new beauty product and was so excited that I just had to tell you about it.  You know I love trying beauty products and I am always on the hunt for the next best thing.  Silk Therapeutics sent me this Complete Gel Facial Cleanser for me to try before it was even available for sale!  They did not ask me for anything in return for it but I loved it so much I just had to tell you about it. I wrote a post in December of last year about some products I tried from them.  That post is very informative about Silk Therapeutics and gives you some great details about their products; which are one of a kind.…

I know the average person can not afford a designer bag or shoes.  I am one of those people.  I also have a hard time with the amount of money women’s clothing retails for; which comes from my many years of retail experience.  I know how much mark-up is applied to merchandise and it is astounding!  Since I have been out of the retail world it has been very hard to purchase things at full price. I will purchase at full price; I just really have to love the item and think it’s worth the price. My favorite item I have splurged on are my Golden Goose Deluxe Sneakers. These sneakers have been on my want list for a few years now! Everytime I would…

Lake life is the best life don’t ya think! I grew up going to the lake and it will always hold a special place in my heart!  Whether it’s the lake, beach or mountains, we all have a place we love to go.  I go to the lake to see my parents every year around my birthday which usually falls on Memorial Day weekend. We try to go the weekend after Memorial Day so we can skip all the crowds.  This year I took advantage of the scenery and took photos for the life-styled version of these outfits. My mom was so kind to take them and did such a great job AND we had fun doing it. Summer is definitely here and a cool…

Hey ladies! I am so very excited to tell you about these amazing products from Ongaro Beauty that I had the opportunity to try!  Those of you who want a simple daily skincare routine will love these products!  I am always looking for products that make my life easier and just plain simple.  It seems that the more simple life is the better right! About Ongaro I just love discovering emerging companies on the beauty product scene.  Ongaro Beauty is one that definitely deserves recognition.  Ongaro Beauty was started by a mother and daughter from Texas. One of them had life threatening melanoma and realized a lot of the beauty products on the market have harmful chemicals that cause cancer! The FDA does not regulate…

Hey ladies! I hope you read my last post about Tips on How to Master a Clothing Flat Lay! This is a continuation of that and I will be giving you some tips on Lighting and Equipment Setup for a Clothing Flat Lay. This may require you to spend a little bit of money but the results are worth it if you want great quality photos. I have to begin by saying that I have a very professional set up.  My husband made me a platform with a stand that holds my camera above and dead center of the platform. I also use speed lights (flash) and a mirrorless camera. It took us about 6 months of practice to really get the lighting perfect and…
