Nike Dri-Fit Net-a-Porter

Nike via Net-a-Porter

Fashion & Beauty

As you may have read in previous posts, Net-a-Porter is my favorite online retailer. I can get lost for hours just browsing through their beautiful assortment, and I use my wishlist as motivation for my goals. When I achieved my fitness goals for October I treated myself to a new Nike workout shirt, and I absolutely love it. It’s long enough to not expose me no matter what my circuit…

Life

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone is having a wonderful day full of loved ones and great food. My boys are with their dad this year, so it’s just my daughter and I. Rather than cook (which I can’t) and have dishes (which I hate), we went to a restaurant for our Thanksgiving feast. Some may eschew this decision as lazy or impersonal, but it was AWESOME! The food was incredible,…

Meet Me at the Bar

Fashion & Beauty

Do you ever find that you’ve developed a serious loyalty to a brand, almost by accident? While cleaning out my bathroom cabinets the other day I realized that a disproportionate amount of my hair care products are from DryBar. It occurred to me that I have sought out these products as my preferred brand for some time now, so I thought I’d share with you all what it is I…

Not All Blues Are Moody

Fashion & Beauty

Happy Tuesday, friends! It was a gorgeous day in Cincinnati today, with sunshine and comfortable temperatures. With no need for outerwear, I opted for this long, lacy shirt layered over comfortable leggings. I cannot for the life of me remember where I got it, and I cut the tag out long ago because you could see it through the shirt! I did find a very similar one on Looktastic, which…

Cardigan For The Win

Fashion & Beauty

I think it’s been pretty well established that we all love fall fashion, but sometimes it can be so hard to just get dressed this time of year! With morning temperatures hovering near freezing and afternoons often soaring into the 60’s (or higher), how’s a girl to manage without changing multiple times a day? I, for one, am not willing to add more laundry to my life so I opt…

Fall Wish List

Fashion & Beauty

I have always loved to create fashion wish lists, even well before I knew about blogging. As a teen I would cut out things I liked from magazines and paste them into a “look book”, which was really just a spiral notebook. I very rarely actually purchased anything from said look book, but I absolutely loved curating a collection of things that were just my style. In a big way,…

Dressing Down Suiting Separates

Fashion & Beauty

Of all the amazing trends this season, I am definitely most excited about suiting separates being front-and-center. I have always loved the versatility of a good suit…the one outfit that can be styled to be classy, conservative, sexy, or casual. As a busy mom I most often find myself deconstructing a suit to dress down the separates to accommodate my lifestyle. Take, for example, these gorgeous oxblood trousers with faux-leather…

October Book Reviews

Book Reviews

Ah, October…my favorite month of the year. There’s nothing quite like sitting on the deck with a hot cider and reading a book while the leaves fall off the trees. Bliss! Here are my reviews for the month, and as always please share any great books you’ve read lately! The Good Lord Bird by James McBride I really enjoyed this book. It’s a historical fiction following the story of a…
