Post image for #Obsession – Seiko Gold-Tone Watch

One of my current obsessions is gold.  If it comes in a metallic color, I want it in gold.  Gold necklace? Check.  Gold earrings? Check.  Gold detail?  Check.  And now, gold watch?  Check.   This Seiko Le Grand Sport Solar Chronograph gold-tone watch is the perfect addition to my new gold collection.  And if the gold wasn't enough to win me over, the diamonds around the face seal the deal.  I mean, what girl doesn't love diamonds?     As much as I love to get dressed up, my style is also very casual chic.  This Seiko watch is just the accessory to help take a typical weekend look of jeans and Read More ...

Post image for Fab Find – Magnetique

Saturday morning I was scrolling through my Instagram feed when I saw someone post a screenshot of a new app that she'd discovered called Magnetique.  The gist of the app is this:  you capture a photo of a page in a magazine that you're reading and it will break each item apart and tell you the designer and where you can find it.  You can then go to the website to purchase it.  Is that not brilliant?  How many times have you been reading a magazine and think, "I need those shoes.  Where can I find them?"     1.  Choose Your Magazine.  Magnetique currently has 2 magazine options: Glamour Read More ...

Post image for Date Night

There are a few things that are important on date night, two of which are what I wear and getting there on time.  I don't like to keep my date waiting so I usually plan what I'm wearing ahead of time.  For a nice dinner or special event, a dress is always my top choice and thanks to my new ESQ Movado ESQ ONE™ watch being on time will be a snap.   Since the ESQ ONE™ watch is stylish enough to dress up or dress down, I decided to style my navy ESQ ONE™ watch with a fun and flirty red dress and navy heels.  Add a red lip and I'm ready to go.   The Read More ...

It seems like I'm always traveling – from Charlotte to New England, Charlotte to Alabama, or Charlotte to New Orleans.  If I'm lucky, I'm able to book a direct flight, but oftentimes, I have a layover.  Sometimes I have plenty of time between flights, and other times I'm running and barely make it before the door closes.  I usually have my smartphone in hand to keep track of the time, but that can be cumbersome when I'm also carrying my handbag and carry-on bag.  Since receiving my new ESQ Movado ESQ ONE™ watch I decided to put together a look that will make my travel a little easier.   My travel style is casual Read More ...

After a long, cold winter, I plan to spend a lot of time outside this summer having lunch with friends on restaurant patios, relaxing on the beach or by the pool with a good book, and enjoying some good food and good music at summer street festivals.  I want my summer wardrobe to be cool and comfortable; fun and fashionable and I know that my new ESQ Movado ESQ ONE™ watch will be a summer staple.   One summer trend that I want to incorporate with my ESQ ONE™ watch is floral pants.  Floral will be everywhere this summer, so I decided to style my navy watch with off-white, green and blue floral print cropped Read More ...

"Is that the dress Kim Kardashian wore?" Black and white dress (The Limited) | Earrings (Tiffany & Co.)   I've been rediscovering my love of black lately.  This dress is thick which makes it perfect for wearing it during the winter.  I wanted to wear this dress one more time before the weather turns warm for good.  Speaking of…umm yeah.  Spring?  It's officially your season, so I need you to shine.   One thing that you can't see that I'm wearing in this photo is a fragrance that I'm trying out courtesy of Glamour called curve appeal.*  I love a fragrance that smells what I call "sexy sweet" and I have Read More ...

Since I started the month off with a post about how the NFL was recognizing October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought I would end the month with a way that I gave my support to the cause.  As a blogger and a Glambassador, Ford wanted me to be a Warrior in Pink and recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month by wearing their "Reach for the Moon" t-shirt inspired by Lifetime's Five, an anthology of five short films exploring the impact of breast cancer on people's lives.      The shirt that they sent me was designed by Jennifer Aniston, one of the executive producers of Five.  This unisex t-shirt is available for Read More ...

What I Wore: Game Day Glam – Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons

Thumbnail image for What I Wore: Game Day Glam – Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons

As you know, this past weekend I traveled to Atlanta to see the Carolina Panthers play the Atlanta Falcons in the Georgia Dome.  I debated about what to wear to the game–should I wear something that would represent the Panthers (my current home team), should I wear something that represents who I was really cheering for (Cam Newton), or should I wear something to show how I would support the Falcons if I was a Falcons fan?  Well, the night before I finally decided that I would wear the common colors of both teams–black and white.  I picked a black off-the-shoulder sweater (you can't always tell that it's off-the-shoulder in Read More ...

As you may know, I am a Glambassador for Glamour magazine.  From time to time, I receive surprise packages in the mail from Glamour.  Recently, I received two separate packages.  One package was my Glambassador welcome kit containing my Glambassador guide, a Glamour tote bag, and a Glambassador notepad.     The second package was a copy of a book by Glamour called 100 Recipes Every Woman Should Know: Engagement Chicken and 99 Other Fabulous Dishes to Get You Everything You Want In Life.  I had previously heard of this book and was so excited to receive a copy that I decided to do a video about it.  Want your own copy of Read More ...
