Hello lovelies! I am so excited to be doing my third Flat Lay to Life-Styled post for you!  I have gotten such good feedback about this one that I think it is going to stay permanently. YAY!  I have so much fun writing it and think it serves a great purpose in bringing you more details on my styling advice. This one is going to be about Spring Transition which I have been concentrating on for the past couple of weeks. When I help clients they all have the same issue with trying to figure out what to wear this time of year.  It is still winter time but it’s cold one day and hot the next.  All the stores are getting Spring things in…

Flat Lay to Life-Styled: Activewear

Hey guys!  This is the month that lots of people are committing to a workout routine for the New Year. I actually took that commitment last January and was doing great until the holidays at the end of the year.  My goal was to workout 1 hour at least 4 times a week doing Barre3 and the stationary bike.  I was actually pretty consistent most of the year.  This year I want to not only continue that trend but to also eat better! I have a sweet tooth like you wouldn’t believe.  So needless to say I stayed the same weight all year.  This year hopefully that’s going to change!!! So this brings me to the theme of this post! Since January and February are…

Play by Sephora December Box

My New Favorite Cosmetic Bag

Hey Ladies! I found the coolest cosmetic bag for my mother for Christmas and I wanted to share it with you!  Not only is the cosmetic bag really cool, but the company behind the bag is pretty impressive!  They are Ellis James Designs.  If you have ever looked for a cosmetic bag, especially for travel, you will know that there are NOT a lot of good choices. I ended up looking on Amazon and found them there. I decided to go to the Ellis James Designs website to see what they were all about. I was impressed with the company mission and the products looked like they were high quality and functional.  Not only that, but the price was outstanding for the Large Cosmetic Organizer…
