As I pack for my trip to Riviera Maya to celebrate the New Year, I’m looking back on my year. It was such a crazy but good year. I know we always say that the years go by so fast but this year truly did for me. I’ve grown so much. I’ve had heartbreak and experienced new love. I walked away from my past to look forward to my future.  I saved money all year to finally buy a house (more to come on that). I was lucky enough to be able to lean on my parents, I can’t thank them enough for what they’ve done for me and what they’ve sacrificed for me. Not just over the past year but for my whole life.  I also cherish the new friendships I’ve made this year. Unfortunately when you go through a divorce, you also lose friendships. Sometimes friends take sides, […]

Current mood: Listening to Christmas music 24/7! It’s one week until Christmas, are you ready? Have you finished shopping? Have you even started? I just have a couple presents left to come in the mail and I am done. So I decided to wrap gifts on Sunday after getting hot chocolate at Naperville’s Christkindlemarket.

So if you haven’t wrapped your gifts yet, hop in your pj’s, grab some hot chocolate and create a killer playlist to get in the Christmas spirit!

Straight No Chaser – […]

Designed using our fan-favorite Power Waistband with built-in shaping mesh, these styles smooth your middle and center-seam free design eliminates camel toe. -Spanx I have to admit, I was on the fence about purchasing the Spanx Faux Leather leggings. Not because I didn’t think I could style them but because of the price. Let’s be real, $98 for a pair of leggings sounds ridiculous! I don’t even typically wear leggings. I’m not a “leggings are pants, people” type of person. I’m always concerned about the thickness of leggings so I just stay away. But my blogger friends have been talking about how these leggings are a legit game changer. So I bit the bullet. Boy am I glad I did! Not only do they hug you in all the right places, they’re comfortable, they’re pretty easy to style and are super […]

I just started my fashion and lifestyle blog a couple months ago and honestly I didn’t know the first thing about running a website. I used the Premium version of WordPress to do the best I could but I knew my blog would need to grow with me. When Laura from Blogerize reached out to me, I did some research and decided to collaborate with them to make my blog what it now is today. And I couldn’t be happier!
