Blouse: c/o Marshalls Jeans: c/o Marshalls Zigi Soho heels: c/o Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse Clutch: c/o Marshalls Necklace: c/o Rocksbox Betsey Johnson earrings: Belk Location: Plaza Midwood (Charlotte) Photography: Maya Elious    I was a little too excited to do some spring shopping recently.  Spring has easily become my favorite season.  I had two specific things that were at the top of my shopping list – jeans and tops.  Was I successful?  Check and check.  Don't you love when that happens?  And when I tell you that I love the looks I put together (also see Oh, Happy Day post), I mean I LOVE them, so don't say that I Read More ...

Post image for Red Carpet + VIP Screening of Brotherly Love Starring Keke Palmer & Quincy Brown

Sunday, March 1, I had the opportunity to work the Red Carpet at the VIP Screening of Brotherly Love starring Keke Palmer, Quincy Brown, Romeo Miller, Cory Hardrict, Macy Gray, and more.  Lead stars Keke Palmer and Quincy Brown walked the red carpet prior to the screening of the movie and held a question and answer session immediately following the movie.  Romeo Miller was scheduled to attend, but had a dental emergency related to recently removed wisdom teeth.  Cast member Chris Jarell was also in attendance.    Home Depot's Retool Your School initiative sponsored the screening, which was held in Charlotte at Studio Movie Grill at the Epicentre.  Retool Your Read More ...

Post image for My 17 Favorite Podcasts

In my recent What's In My Bag post I shared that I keep my iPod nano in my handbag so I can listen to it at work.  It keeps me going through the work day.  For real.  I mostly listen to podcasts so I thought that I would share my favorite podcasts with you in no particular order.  Please leave a comment below if you listen to any of these or if you want to suggest a podcast that I should listen to.  I'm always looking for good podcasts to add to my list, so suggestions are welcome!     The Heidi & Frank Show.  This is a daily morning radio show Read More ...

Left-to-Right: Guess Charise Booties (Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse c/o Concord Mills) | Zigi Soho Duran (c/o Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse) | Steve Madden Daintey (c/o Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse)   I don't know what it is, but lately I have been obsessed with peep-toe shoes.  The last three pairs of shoes that I've picked out?  Peep-toe. The shoes that I want to wear everyday.  Peep-toe (which is a problem because I've been slipping on the pedicures lately).  So, even though they've all been featured in recent posts, I thought that I would get up close and personal with each pair.   Meet the Guess Charise peep-toe booties.  These are the booties that I wear when Read More ...

What’s In My Harper Bag?

2014,November 4
Thumbnail image for What’s In My Harper Bag?

It's been a LONG time since I've done a What's In My Bag post, so I decided to do one.  I always find these types of posts interesting, because I carry a lot of stuff in my bag and I love to see what others carry in theirs.  This week I'm carrying my cobalt blue Harper bag that I got at Francesca's last fall.  I still get so many people asking me where I got this bag.  It's one of my favorites not only because of the color and shape, but because it's big enough to hold everything and it's not a struggle to find what I'm looking for in Read More ...

Blazer (c/o Marshalls) | Blouse (The Limited) | Leggings (c/o Marshalls)  Riding boots (c/o Marshalls) | Handbag (Phillip Lim for Target) | Necklace (c/o RocksBox)    How many times and how many ways can I say that I love a classic blazer?  For fall, I'm all about a classic look, so my fall shopping list looks a little like this:  blazers, white button down shirt, riding books, peep-toe booties (more trendy than classic), coat, and more blazers.     During a recent shopping trip to Marshalls, I was able to mark two items off my list.  And you want to know the best part?  Both pieces were under $40 each.  It was so easy to Read More ...

Saints tee (c/o Nike) | Skirt (The Limited) | Guess booties (Off Broadway Shoe Warehouse c/o Concord Mills) Necklace, Bracelet, Clutch (c/o Versona Accessories)   I was recently introduced to a shop called Versona Accessories when they contacted me to tell me about the Grand Opening of a new location in Charlotte.  Versona Accessories itself is not new nor new to the Charlotte area, but for some reason it had escaped my attention. When they first contacted me I thought it would be all accessories in the store, but once I visited their website I saw that they sell everything – clothes, shoes, jewelry, handbags, home decor, scarves, and more.  Not only that, Read More ...

Ted Baker dress (c/o Marshalls) | Cole Haan handbag (c/o Marshalls) | Steve Madden sandals (c/o Marshalls) Cole Haan sunglasses (c/o Marshalls) | Name necklace (c/o 9th & Elm)   It's such an amazing feeling when you meet your perfect match.  When you meet the one who gets you.

What I Wore – Zoya Nude Nail Polish

Thumbnail image for What I Wore – Zoya Nude Nail Polish

By no means am I a beauty blogger or beauty expert.  My beauty routine is pretty simple and I stick with what I like.  However, when I'm given the opportunity to try something new (particularly for free), I'm game.  Recently I receive a Klout perk from People magazine.  I've started receiving People in the mail for x number of months (I can't remember if it's 3 or 6 months) and they made me a People VIP.  As a VIP I received a "box" from People and one of the items in the box was a bottle of Zoya nail polish in a nude color called Rue.   I tested it Read More ...
