Freshening Up The Wardrobe with Byer California

Byer California - Skinny Dark Denim, Aztec cardigan, marsala tank, black purse with gold studs and black booties

Do you remember that show, What Not To Wear? I watched it a lot in college with one of my best friends.  I always recalled watching and wondering how exactly the moms on there ended up with clothing that were 10+ years old, or mainly had a closet of boring, faded, stretched out t-shirts & jeans.  Obviously my college-age self would not have realized how EASY it is to fall into that, uh, rut.  Of course, clothing like this is {Read More}

Searching For My Baby Face – Pevonia Skincare


This week I celebrate my 33rd birthday.  It’s kind of snuck up on me this year.  Well, to be completely honest, the fact that it’s December, in general, is just mind boggling.  I swear I was just ringing in the new year at Knott’s Berry Farm!  But like anything, time just sneaks up on you and you’re trying to do your best to scramble and make the most of it.  Do you ever get that feeling? Like, you wonder how {Read More}
