Hi loves! Happy Friday!
Keepin' it short and sweet with my annual survey today. I'd love to hear your feedback. This blog has changed quite a bit in the last two years and I'd like to keep you around a little bit longer. (wink, wink). Please, share your thoughts and you can remain totally anonymous if you like, too. I promise...it's only seven questions. Easy peasey!
Cheers and thanks for your participation in making this a fun and inspirational place to visit! xo
In case you missed it, I brought back #Babesgiving in a big way this year. Today, I'm showing you my goodies. No, not those goodies kids! Ghish!
I LOVE to entertain. Truly. I love to brainstorm intimate soirees with friends and family that have a zillion thoughtful touches and details. The last few years have been so busy launching a new business that I chose to be extra grateful this year and bring back my Annual #Babesgiving Brunch.
Today I am sharing a super simple recipe that you can whip up in minutes. I stumbled upon it by accident and within an hour we had a healthy recipe that was equally delicious. It's perfectly Fall with something to satisfy your sweet tooth which I am currently battling. <thank you Halloween...cough, cough>
Give it a spin and let me know what you think!
To me, jewelry is the accent piece to every outfit I select. Not a day goes by that I don't add earrings and rings, maybe even an occasional necklace to my daily uniform. A day without statement jewelry leaves me feeling totally naked. Something is off. Every outfit needs a touch of sparkle.
Today I do not feel like I want to post about fashion. Today is one of those Truth Tuesday posts. I've been reflecting quite a bit about all the change 2017 has brought. Some of it has been pretty fabulous while others have been quite stressful. With only two months to go, I can safely say that 2017 was not one of my favorite years and the word on the street is that many people feel the same. 2017 was a year of change.
And 2018...if you're listening...you better bring it!
It's always fun to look back on the last 30 days and review life as we know it. Fall is such a busy time of year. It usually leaves me breathless but in the best way. It's been so long since I've done one of these that I felt today appropriate. I've had a bit of a black cloud over my head as of late but TODAY the sun is shining and it's Friday!
I posted a blog last week on shopping. It wasn't ground breaking and I've shared this type of content many-a-time before. Once in awhile a reader will comment on a particular item they, too are fawning over. It's just fun, superfluous content. The interesting thing about this post is that it really rubbed one reader the wrong way. I mentioned it extensively on my IG stories but in case you missed it...here's what my friend, "Laney" had to say...
Mmmmmm Fall. So delicious and layered and vibrant. I may have a case of the FOMOs from Fashion Week but I am ready to embrace a new season. Not to be confused with pumpkin spice anything because that stuff is gross. Just gimme all the honey crisp apples, sweaters and bonfires and I am a happy camper...a stylish camper but happy!
What's the #1 thing on your Fall shopping wish list? Dying to know!
I'm an open book. I think we know this given my career of choice - social media. It should come as no surprise to you that I am also very much an advocate of BOTOX and aging gracefully. I don't see it as taboo. I'm not ashamed and it makes me feel good. And isn't that what counts?
Summer is coming to a bittersweet end and I have to tell you that it's been a great one. My family and I experienced and did so much this year. Slightly exhausting but definitely more exhilarating as blogging has afforded us some really great experiences that will forever be a part of our memory book.
Having that said, I am sharing SIX fantastic things to do with your girlfriends before the Labor Day flags wave. Yes, there's still time!
