Post image for My Guilty Pleasure

This week's prompt for Project 52 is "Guilty Pleasure."  I actually took this photo several weeks ago when I decided to do a post about the magazines that I read, but once I looked over the list of Project 52 photography prompts, I decided to save it for this week.   So, I love magazines.  Over the years I've had subscriptions to a lot of different magazines.  The bad part is that these days they seem to pile up and before I know it, I have 3 months of unread magazines.  But that is changing.  This year I vowed to stay on top of reading my magazines, which means I'm Read More ...

Post image for My Morning Routine

Earlier this week, I shared with you my travel list for 2015.  My other main focus for this year is to practice my photography and become a superstar photographer by December 31, 2015.  Ok, maybe not superstar, but I definitely want to see my photography improve over the course of the year.  So, when fellow blogger Mimi of Lipgloss & Binky posted about hers and LaShawn's (Everyday Eyecandy) photography challenge, Project 52, I was all in (ok, maybe not quite ALL in since I didn't post for week 1 of the challenge. Oops.).  Since the week 2 photo prompt is "Morning," I decided to photograph and write about my morning routine (this Read More ...

Dress (Forever 21) | Vest (Marshalls) | Belt (H&M) | Rocket Dog boots (c/o Marshalls) | Watch (c/o Timex) Tights (Marshalls) | Steve Madden sunglasses (c/o Marshalls) | Clutch & Necklace (Target) | Bracelet (c/o Versona Accessories)   First, let me start off by saying that absolutely nothing that I'm wearing in these photos is new.  Despite what some might think, I don't shop ALL the time (in fact, I'm skipping Black Friday sales right now to put this post together).  I went into my closet and threw this look together the day after Thanksgiving.  One of my goals for the long holiday weekend is to clean out my drawers and closet, which usually means me playing Read More ...

Post image for What I Wore – 1.State Digital Plaid Blazer

1.State Digital Plaid Blazer (c/o 1.State) | Tank (c/o Marshalls) | Jeans (Target) Steve Madden lace booties (c/o Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse) | Clutch (c/o Versona Accessories) | Name Necklace (c/o 9th & Elm)   A couple of weeks ago Belk at Southpark Mall hosted a Girls Night Out event.  There was food, drinks, music, and lots of shopping.  I had the pleasure of introducing to their customers the newest designer brand to hit their racks, 1.State.  Prior to the event, I picked out this blazer along with their crepe fit and flare dress.  If you follow me on Instagram (BlitzAndGlam), then you not only saw that look, but you also saw the look Read More ...

How To Stand Out In A Game Day Crowd

New Orleans Saints tee (c/o Touch by Alyssa Milano) | Button-down shirt (The Limited) | French Connection skirt (c/o Marshalls) Steve Madden lace booties (c/o Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse) | Clutch (c/o Versona Accessories) | Bracelet and Ring (RocksBox)   You should know by now that I'm always going to do something a little different to make my Game Day look unique; to make it stand out from the crowd.  I mean, if you go to a game the chance that someone else is wearing the same team apparel that you have on is pretty high.  And I've never been one who wants to look like everyone else, which is why I don't own any Read More ...

Marshalls Fall Fashion Sneak Peek

I can't say enough about how much I love fall fashion (every fall fashion post will probably start with me saying some variation of this statement).  I recently had a very successful shopping trip to Marshalls and can't wait to share my fab finds and my final look. If you follow me on Instagram (BlitzAndGlam), then this blazer looks familiar to you.  I mean, elbow patches and quilted boots.  What more do I need to say?  Boots and blazers are two of my favorite things about fall.  What are some of your favorite things about fall fashion?     Love shopping at Marshalls as much as I do?  Be sure Read More ...

Thumbnail image for Rocksbox + How To Dress Up A Basic Tee

Grey tee (Target) | Necklace (c/o RocksBox) | Michael Kors frames (c/o Advanced Eye Care)   I was recently contacted by RocksBox about trying their jewelry subscription service.  I was intrigued because (a) I love jewelry, (b) I don't have nearly enough of it, and (c) I'd been looking for a "box" service that would fit my needs.  Well, signing up was easy.  I took a survey about my style and before I knew it my first RocksBox had arrived.  How does it work?  You're assigned a stylist who picks out 3 pieces for you.  My first box contained a necklace (see below), bracelet (see here), and earrings.  My second box contained Read More ...

I Have Nothing To Wear tee (c/o 9th & Elm) | Blazer (The Limited) | White Jeans (Target) | Guess Sandals (c/o Marshalls) Cole Haan Sunglasses (c/o Marshalls) | Clutch (Urban Expressions) | Name Necklace (c/o 9th & Elm) | Bow Earrings (Old Navy)   We all do it.  We look in our closet full of clothes and declare, "I have nothing to wear."  Come on.  Admit it.  You do it too.  I know I do it at least once a week.  Why do we do this?  Clearly, we have a lot of clothes to wear.  I think we just get tired of wearing the same things, because let's be honest.  We probably only wear about Read More ...
