Are You Sentimental Too?

louis vuitton josephine wallet

As I've grown up, and moved (many times), I've realized I am a bit sentimental about things. With each move, I've uncovered more boxes full of mementos of photographs (totally normal), keychains (not so normal) and baby hair.  This is totally a mom thing. I have a hard time getting rid of these objects even though our garage & closet is overflowing. Each item takes me back to a different time and place and brings back vivid pictures.  One of the keychains I have is the little photo keepsake you get at amusement parks.  I have 2 that were from an 8th grade trip with my small class.  It … [Read more...]

Thankful Tee Styled Three Ways

Cents of Style - Graphic Tee - Thankful Grateful Blessed - Fashion Friday

This post is sponsored and contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support! When I worked retail in college, my boss always wore a crisp white tee.  She said she never felt more pulled together and had a stack of shirts to alternate through.  I never really understood that - I am a girl for color.  But as I've grown older, there's just something to be said for a white tee that fits well and is super soft.  I give myself an extra pat on the back if it's STILL white by the end of the day.

Transition to Fall – Long Sleeve Swing Dress

cents of style - long sleeve swing dress

This is a sponsored post and might contain affiliate links. We're transitioning into fall around SoCal and it's bittersweet for me.  On the one hand - this means I can finally wear my booties more, and sweaters, have cozy fires at home, and hot cocoa.  On the other hand - it means my baby is growing up and will be one Mid-November.  It means we'll no longer have a baby and will have a toddler.  (Yes, he's really testing his boundaries with standing and shuffling around)  I've been stocking up on dresses lately because while I'm nursing, they're just not that friendly to do so in.  But we're … [Read more...]

Some Me Time – Pamper Sessions On The Go

Pamper Sessions On The Go - Sally Hansen and Priv

This post was sponsored by Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs as part of an Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review. Every girl needs a good pamper session before heading out - whether it's with the girls, the husband, or, a bunch of strangers. Strangers?? Eh sort of.  Remember how I ventured down to San Diego and drove around in some cool cars?  Do you remember one of the photos at the end of the night? No? ok hold on. Earlier that day, before my 3+ hour drive to San Diego, I got a little pamper session in to get my makeup done and to turn … [Read more...]

Lead By Example – Daily Bible Devotional with Beautiful Word Bible

Lead By Example - Daily Bible Devotional

  I remember a time that the only time my bible saw the light of day was Sundays at church.  Then that expanded into the nights I attended bible study at our church and when I did the homework for it.  My bible started seeing more light of day and within the past year I've really been working hard to set an example for my kids to see me reading at home. At church, Jon and I are in the sanctuary while they're in the kid rooms with friends.  When I was attending bible studies, I did my homework after they were in bed.  Everything was always when they weren't around.  They both … [Read more...]
