A Sparkly Family Photo Shoot

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013



In a few weeks, we will be having our Christmas photo shoot. I am so excited to have our pictures taken as a family of 4! I really like to theme our outfits, having colors consistent throughout each family member.

Style files: So what’s in that bag?

Thursday, October 24th, 2013


Coach Purse: This is similar in size to the one I am currently carrying, although they no longer sell my beautiful lavender purse.

Hobo Wallet: once you go Hobo, you never go back. I have two. Trust me when I say these can hold it all. I often carry the night’s take in my wallet, and this will hold a wad of cash waiting for deposit.

Chapstick: I subscribe to BirchBox and currently was given a sample of this chapstick. I LOVE IT!

Small toiletries bag with essentials: I got this as a stocking stuffer one year, and I keep all the essentials, feminine products, bandaids, shout wipes, medicine, etc.

Ear buds: I currently am donning the buds that came with my new iPhone, but am really looking into getting a new pair. I love these pink ones.

iPhone 5s in Gold: Yep. My hubby is a winner, and I now own a gorgeous gold iPhone. Maybe one day I will tell you our trick for never paying for a new phone.

iPhone 5s case: With that beautiful new phone listed above, I need something strong enough to protect it against the kids, and well, lets face it, me. This is my go to case by Otterbox, although lately I have been looking into the Mophi cases.

Notepad: I love my Moleskin, and recently bought a Target brand one. They aren’t the same. I will be buying a new one soon to replace the cheap knock-off.

Pens: My husband never wants to steal my pink pens. However, customers do, so these stay in my purse.

Top 10 Tuesday: My fave bags right now

Bags to love


1. Gap Leather Bag This is definitely an every day style for me. I can see myself donning this in spring or fall. At 40% off right now, a definite steal.

2. Orla Kiely Cachet Bag I am in love with this bag. I love all that Orla Kiely produces though (have you seen her backyard?)

3. Delmare Shopping Bag I love the functionality of this bag, being able to adjust. A good alternative for carrying baby things as well, or as a toddler bag. I also love the price point.

4. Kate Spade Stevie Baby Bag I have wanted this baby bag for as long as I can remember. It has yet to grace my arm.

5. Tassel Top Hobo This also is a great price point, and fits into that boho chic category but has clean enough lines to dress up as well.

6. Small Carryall from WILL  This bag is fantastic. I would probably use it to bring on the road with snacks, lunches, Stella’s play blanket & toys.

7. Handmade tote from CrazyBoy My friend Nicole (I love to call her that although we never have met) posted this on her blog, Making It Lovely, and I have had it pinned in Pinterest for quite some time.

8. Notting Hill Bow Tote How adorable is this? I see it with a nice denim tunic, leggings, and my Frye boots.

9. Coach Soft Legacy Bag I am a Coach fan. No question about that. But I have been veering away a little for style points. However, you can always rely upon Coach’s quality.

10. Dooney & Bourke: Oberland Sac I like the classic lines of this bag, and the pop of color. This would definitely be filed under my “mommy bags” though.
