I don't know about you, but I'm seeing lace everywhere. Clothing, accessories and even dog collars are popping up lacy - and I love it! Lace calls to mind romance and femininity (think wedding) - something I very much appreciate in the midst of today's tumultuous world. To be honest, I've been trying to figure out how to pull off wearing something lacy for a long time. I seriously think the last time I had the opportunity to wear anything lacy was on my wedding day (13 years ago). So it's definitely time to revisit this beautiful fabric....more
Keeping colors together always makes me feel well dressed. I find that I feel most coordinated when I can tie the color in my top together with that of the shoes I'm wearing! It truly makes for a polished, put together look - even when I'm dressing down. Here's my example:...more

Therefore, it’s essential that you invest in suits that that are comfortable aligned with your style, budget and body shape....more
Have you ever tried counting all the T-shirts you have in your house? With a husband and four kids, I have tons at my house and it would probably take me forever to pull them all out and count them. But that's boring, so instead I decided to pull out a few with cute colors and prints, and I made some of these chic twist headbands. Five minutes is all it takes to sew together one of these cute headbands. And the bonus? Making these helped to clean out my house! Score one for me!

Now that I’m running more to prepare for my Team Relay Marathon, I’m realizing that I don’t like a lot of my running clothes. There is nothing more annoying than starting a run and realizing that the pants you threw on actually fall down every third step, so you have to keep yanking them back up over your butt.Believe me, I have PLENTY of excuses not to run… I don’t need running clothes helping me with any!...more
