MRS. BRIGHT SIDE

One of the perks of working on style and lifestyle segments, is sometimes getting first dibs on amazing collections / pieces before they hit stores and online; such was the case with the Iris Apfel x H&M collection that sold out in minutes the moment it hit shelves. It’s a true testament to the success…

HERE COMES THE SUN

There’s nothing mellow about yellow; except the fact that it is making quite the splash as the color for spring, signaling loud and proud that it’s here to make a fashion statement. There’s just something about yellow. It evokes happiness, sunny vibes, and just promotes an overall good mood; so just imagine what it can…

PACKING UP WINTER FOR GOOD.

Just when I thought that winter had packed it’s bags and had jetted off to make room for all the spring things, it decided to overstay it’s welcome and come back around. WHYYYY?! I so gleefully washed and hung the puffers to make room for lighter and less bulky transitional jackets and coats, only to…

COMING ALIVE

Anyone get beat up by Daylight Savings Time? Raise your hand. I sure did. My kids were late to school, I couldn’t peel myself out of bed, and I still felt so tired most of the day. Is it DST or age? Ha! It could also be that I’ve been busy every single day for…

IN-VEST-ED AT 41

I can’t miss the opportunity for a good play on words; and I can’t miss the opportunity to share a good sweater vest find! Now, I love a classic sweater vest- something that doesn’t make me think too hard in terms of building an outfit around it. I normally stick to classic colors like black,…

IT’S A BRAND NEW DAY

This morning I woke up and I decided to dust off the gratitude journal and start writing in it again. I hadn’t written in it since July. God knows I’ve been thankful and grateful for many things since then. Lately I’ve been reading articles and self-help apps that keep reminding me how a little goes…

2022, IS THAT YOU?

Hello, 2022! I don’t know if I should welcome you with open arms, a can of mace, or a good ol’ fist bump! I’m pretty clueless as to what you have in store, but the meme game is strong with predictions on social media, and as of right now, everyone is using humor to deflect…

BYE, BYE FALL.

It was bound to happen. Fall has officially left the building. Tomorrow is the first day of winter, but it’s been feeling quite blistering for the past couple of days. It’s the kind of weather that makes you grab the hand warmers and a heavier coat, for fear you might lose a limb. Once January…

IT’S BEEN A MINUTE

Oh Goodness! It’s been a cold minute since I’ve posted on the blog and it’s long overdue! It’s been busy and chaotic around here, in a good way, but even good stress, is still stress, so it’s important to come up for air. Writing is therapeutic for me. Whether it’s a journal entry or a…

IN-VEST-ED

You heard it right- sweater vests are trending. Time to in-vest in one! Looks like some of our grandparents’ wardrobe staples have made their way to the runways, and now the sweater vest is getting it’s 15 minutes of fame this fall season. If you think that just because you live in a warm weather…
