Natalia over at Ma Nouvelle Mode wrote up this post about mixing things up with the few garments she has in her teeny closet. As a mother who spends all my money on my kids instead of on myself I have a closet comprised of clothes I’ve slowly collected over the years. There hasn’t been much updating and I tend to fall back on the same dated outfits over and over again. After...
Sugar 'n Spice Vox Box
What a lucky girl! I was selected by Influenster to receive another vox box filled with complimentary goodies to test and review. Man I love being an Influenster! Before I could even look at everything I got in my Sugar ‘n Spice Vox Box my other half stole the Belvita cookies and munched them down. I was able to steal one before he ate them all and I knew why he wasn’t sharing....

I know 27 is still a little early to be worrying about fine lines, but if I take care of my skin now I won’t have to worry so much later.

Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-On Manicure
I got this ImPress Press-On Manicure nail set from Influenster’s College Vox Box yesterday to test and review the product. The pattern on the nails were something I could never do myself with my own nail polish so I was excited to try them. The box said the manicure will last for a whole week if you follow the directions so I made sure I did everything exactly like the box said. Now as...
Do You Dare?

Remembering Zac Posen
Thank you for sharing “From Me to You.” I am in LOVE with this collection :D fromme-toyou: Total glamour. What Zac Posen does for women’s bodies can suck all the air out of a room.
