The Fab 40s in: Fashion for the Apocalypse??

Well, where do I begin with this one? Alright I'll start by saying that I'm honored to be invited by Shelbee on the Edge to share in on the fashion adventures with the Fabulous 40s, a group of six stylish, fashion bloggers from around the globe. As this month's hostess, Shelbee chose the guest blogger, as well as the theme: The Apocalypse. Of course we assume that there will be no thought to fashion when one is surviving post apocalypse, but one can never be too prepared.

Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box for December!

It's a pampering, cold supporting, tension diffusing and all around fabulous month for Simply Earth Subscribers! After traveling home from Georgia my husband started feeling poorly, but a few days later it became unbearable - to me. Yeah. I know. Sadly, my nursing skills could use a little work. However, the boys and I completed two recipes out of December's box and they just happened to be a "Congestion Relief" roll on and a Congestion Relief vapor rub. Guess who has been laying by the diffuser smelling like an oil shop? (Side note: Be sure to scroll to the end to see Evan and Caden help me share the unboxing for this month!)

Eva Trends: The Queen Lace Dress

I finally pulled out this gorgeous dress sent to me from Eva Trends! It was but an ordinary date night, only this time my hubby and I were invited to a coat and tie Christmas dinner. I couldn't be more thrilled to have the perfect dress waiting for it's debut! Now pray tell, what was my reward for being ready on time? I had to pump the gas. Of course I'm kidding, but when the weather's been uncooperative for pictures, you take lighting opportunities where you can get it! Now let's chat about this dress!

The Holiday Series: Christmas Outfit Inspiration with Five Girls Fashion

 Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! The countdown in our home continues with 2 exceedingly hyper boys and two mildly excited young men.  That persnickety, invaluable resource called time, sneakily slips through my fingers as I busy myself with new traditions, plans for next year and preparing for family to arrive. Yes! My in-laws are coming to us and we couldn't be more excited for this special addition to our new traditions. Meanwhile, the weather in Florida heats up and cools down, challenging my fashion choices (AND HAIR!!!) each day! So planning my actual Christmas outfit sits on the back burner, but I couldn't resist joining Ada from Elegance and Mommyhood in this collaboration for Christmas Inspiration.

The Striped Tunic, My Usual Felt Hat & New Tradition

That's me thinking. I'm doing a lot of thinking lately. The goal planner that I've mentioned repeatedly since November, has prompted introspection and life evaluation. In turn, I'm seeing several areas that, like a neglected flower bed, needs major tending. But rather than feel doses of self-incrimination and shame, I feel excited to try things differently; maybe even feel a modicum of freedom to dance in who I am. Have you taken some time out to assess how those major life areas such as: health, family, work, rest, finances, etc?  If you haven't, it's worth the time investment because it can help you regroup and maybe even take steps towards a new plan!

Holiday Home "Tour": Christmas Tree Drama, Home Projects & Questionable "Pinterest" Decor

Hello my friends! While I hoped to be sharing photos of a festively decorated home, it would seem that this post is going to take a different turn. From mini-Christmas tree disasters, missing decorations that most assuredly are at Goodwills across Georgia, to unexpected adventures in finishing off house projects this December, we are off to a memorable start! Read on to join me and my contribution to this year's Holiday Home Tour, hosted by Ada at Elegance and Mommyhood.

Eva Trends: Front Pocket Sweater & Link Up

Hello! December snuck in and brought another Sunday Showcase link up and What's Coming Up post your way! Last month Kellyann, Ada and I featured our Favorite Fall Trends and this month it's all about the sweaters. Now that I'm in Florida, my sweater collection is going to be few, so I want the space I allot for said sweaters to count. With that being said, allow me to introduce this comfortable and festive sweater from Eva Trends!
