Trunk Club Review | June 2017

Dress: Loveappella Maxi Dress | Hat: Target | Necklace: Vintage from my grandmother ūüôā

Our family doesn’t usually take summer vacation trips because my girls and I take an annual road trip from our current home in the South to my childhood home in Southern California. ¬†Spending our summers in SoCal is “vacation” enough for me. ¬†Unfortunately, we won’t be able to make our annual trek this year because my girls both have jobs now and my elderly dog is ill. ¬†Instead, my husband and I were invited to travel to Cuba with some close friends!¬† Continue reading

Golden Turmeric Milk Tea

Golden Turmeric Milk Tea

Like many runners, I suffer from a variety of aches and pains as a result of long distance running.  And like most runners, I prefer to use natural approaches before reaching for a bottle of pills to ease my pains.

Pinterest is full of homemade remedies for everything from the common cold to upset tummies, and everything in between. ¬†Versions of this “golden milk tea” recipe have been circulating Pinterest for a while, so I thought I’d give it a try. ¬†After studying about a dozen different versions, I mixed and matched and tweaked it it a little until I was happy with the flavor. ¬†It’s a pretty simple recipe and very easy to make.¬† Continue reading

Stitch Fix & Trunk Club

Denim: Aeropostale | Top: Heartloom by Stitch Fix | Shoes: Tom’s Beatrix Clogs | Purse: Street Level from Stitch Fix | Pendant: Loft | Earrings: My own

One of the luxuries of working from home is not having to waste money on a formal business wardrobe.  I can work in my jeans & t-shirts, my athletic wear, or even my jammies if I want. And while it can be tempting to live in comfort clothes day in and day out, it gets boring after a while.

Today‚Äôs world of fashion has seen a burst of new ‚Äúpersonal stylist‚ÄĚ options.¬†Stitch Fix¬†and¬†Trunk Club¬†are two of my favorites. ¬†The idea is that you fill out a brief questionnaire about your likes and dislikes, and your very own personal stylist will hand select items for you to try on at home. You only pay for what you keep, and return the rest. ¬†Pretty simple.¬† Continue reading

Stitch Fix Review | April 2017

My 13th “Fix”

Stitch Fix #13 – April 2017

While this is my first blog review for Stitch Fix, this is my 13th “Fix”! ¬†I have been using Stitch Fix since about 2015. ¬†It’s been a lifesaver for me on so many occasions when I simply didn’t have the time to go shopping. ¬†And I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want to do in my (rare) spare time is spend it in them mall. ¬†After working a 12 hour day, doing chores around the house, getting dinner ready for my family, and taking care of my dogs, I barely have enough time to blink, let alone drive to the mall to fight the crowds, only to be disappointed that I couldn’t find what I was looking for. Wouldn’t it be great to have your own personal stylist? ¬†Well now you can!¬† Continue reading
