Spread The Love Gift Exchange


Happy Monday! How are you at shipping care or gift packages? And I'm talking about the whole process...planning what you're going to send, shopping for what you're going to send and then making it to the post office with what you're going to send? I'm terrible at it and I have two siblings in the army!!!  For this reason, when I first saw the invite for a gift exchange from The Blended Blog, my cursor hovered over the delete button, but then I hesitated.

Scoop Neck Sweater & My First Bralette


Hello beautiful! I hope your week is going well so far. We are settling back into a routine after battling the flu all last week. Crazy enough my strain only lasted about 24 hours with no other symptoms other than a headache, feeling weak and achy all over. Those who were hit with it full force had fevers and an aching, shaking, misery that made me want to run for the hills! My hubby still has a persisting cough that's driving him nuts (maybe me as well), but we are grateful to be out of quarantine.

Red Dress Collab & The Burnout Floral Velvet Kimono

Day to Night Stiletto Earrings

Hello. In honor of American Heart Month, Ada from Elegance and Mommyhood wanted to host yet another collab featuring, you guessed it - red dresses!  In many cases heart disease is preventable by living a healthy lifestyle. Nutrition and exercise is proven to be beneficial in a numerous amount of ways. This begs the question, why not do just that? For me, I get busy with life and convenience often wins over healthy food prep or carving out extra time for exercise. However, it truly helps to have reminders such as these to bring me back to reality. The reality is that my health needs to be a priority.

Justice League Top & Stars for 2018


I was out on a mission. What was my mission? Score some bargains of course. This was my second trip to Altar'd State's semi-annual clearance sale. Their additional 60% off clearance went up to 70% and I wasn't going to miss it. Even if that meant dragging my two little buddies with me! And it seemed fitting to wear a shirt I found for a bargain at the GAP! Bargains, bargains, bargains!!

Penguins & Plaid Unite & Instagram Style Challenges


Hello! Last week it was all about the pinks and purples, so today I'm going for black, red and grey; a  perfect option for a more subtle Valentines look. I'm laughing at myself right now, but it's true. Some don't want to wear pink or red and they certainly don't want cutesy hearts - and that's perfectly fine! I just happen to love it all...from boho to romantic, from edgy to cutesy...I'll try it. Of course not everything works for me and I feel more confident in some styles over others, but I still like to try.

My First Korean Skin Care Experience: Saranghae's 5 Step Routine


For years, my wise momma has preached to me the importance of a proper skincare regimen.

"You should wash your face twice a day, but at the least before you go to bed at night!" 
"You're never too young to start! 
You have to stay ahead of the aging process with good skincare." 
"Sunscreen, Chrissy. Sunscreen!"

Allow me to say that my momma looks fabulous and it's hard to guess her age. So, I'd like to tell you that I've always adhered to her nuggets of anti-aging wisdom but, in all honesty, I've got more excuses than consistency. After a long day of homeschooling, driving around teens, laundry, dinner and so on, all I want to do is drop into the bed.

Valentine's Outfit: From Day to Night & Link Up!


Hello world! Valentine's Day is coming! That's what this outfit says to me! Whether or not I actually participate in all the festivities makes no difference. I just want to wear pink and burgundy! I see it everywhere on Instagram in the shoes, clothes, accessories and even household decor. PINK. However, if you're not in love with pink, or burgundy, hold on tight because I am collaborating with Ada from Elegance and Mommyhood and 8 other bloggers to bring this fun post: From Day to Night for Valentine's. There's sure to be variety there...

Pinks, Purples & More Plaid


Do you see pink/blush all over the place? Or is pink a color that's always lined your drawers and closet? Without realizing it, I've jumped on the "Pink, Blush & Bashful" train. I blame it on my latest beanie addition - C.C. in Blush, which is featured in outfit 2 of this post. Then came these lovely PINK, statement earrings in a recent order from Corrie LeeAnns. They were a surprise gift included in my "mystery top" order (I'll explain more about that on the blog soon!). Anyway, this blush craze is just in time for Valentine's Day, which is right around the corner.

Hello dear friend! Today we celebrate two feats; one large and one small. Let's start with the big one! Ada's 100th Thursday Moda link up!! There is a lot of work required to maintain a blog, so I can't imagine how much more work goes into a weekly link up commitment. Ada wanted to celebrate big, in her usual way, by inviting some blogger friends to join her in giving away a $200 Target card! I'm excited and honored to participate in this exciting post!
