Women Only Wednesday

Post image for My Fall Uniform + $25 Marshalls Gift Card Giveaway

French Connection skirt (c/o Marshalls) | Philosophy blazer (c/o Marshalls) | Blouse (c/o Marshalls) Heels (Dillard's) | Necklace (c/o Versona Accessories)   If I had to submit one look that epitomizes my style, this would be it.  I love absolutely everything about this look (and it screams "private school girl", am I right?  I do love a cute school girl look) and finding these pieces in one Marshalls shopping trip is why I love Marshalls.   On this particular shopping trip I went specifically looking for a new handbag or new shoes for fall, but when I go to Marshalls I can never just shop one section.  I look at everything – handbags, shoes, Read More ...

Black drop-waist dress (Old Navy) | Heels (ShoeDazzle) | Pink handbag (Marshalls)  Bow bracelet (Old Navy) | Necklace (Target) | Earrings (Tiffany & Co.)   I turn 35 this Saturday, August 9.  When I think back to where I thought I would be at 35, this isn't it.  And that's not a bad thing.  When I was little, I just assumed that I would be married with kids at this age, because 35 was old and that's just what old people did. Ha! When I was in law school I never imagined that just 10 years post-graduation I would be more than ready for my post-legal career (Victoria's Secret model, full-time blogger, anything in social Read More ...

Post image for What I Wore – Weekend Lunch

Chambray Dress (Target) | Belt (H&M) | Heels (ShoeDazzle) | Bag (Marshalls)  Bracelets (The Limited) | Necklace (Old Navy) | Earrings (Old Navy)   Everyone should take a little time to have lunch with their girlfriends.  Whether it's a group of sisters or close girlfriends, you need that girl time to catch up on the happenings in each other's lives.  Two of my closest girlfriends live in different cities and states – one in Birmingham, Alabama and the other in Atlanta, Georgia – so we have to make an effort to not just have lunch, but usually to have a girls' weekend.  Or a special, mid-week Beyonce-and-Jay-Z-are-in-concert-in-Atlanta-and-we-bought-tickets-as-soon-as-they-went-on-sale overnight trip.     This chambray shirt dress from Target Read More ...

Saturday I had the opportunity to attend the Shape Magazine Diva Dash at Riverbend Farm in Midland, NC.  Thanks to Crest and Crest Pro-Health I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Dr. Travis Stork from the TV Show The Doctors.  Dr. Stork has partnered with Crest to discuss how oral care is an important part of your overall health.  So, I sat down with Dr. Stork to ask him a few questions about oral care and the new Crest Pro-Health Tartar Protection.   As a person with diabetes, can you tell me the importance of good oral care for people with the disease?   Although we're still learning how Read More ...

I had the honor of being the keynote speaker at the Art Institute of Charlotte's Keep Calm & Blog On Conference Monday evening.  It was an absolute honor to be there speaking to the conference attendees.  As I told them, I was thrilled when I was asked to be the keynote speaker, because it means that someone thinks that I have done enough things right in my blogging career to go there and impart knowledge on them.  I also shared with the conference attendees that at the beginning of the year I wrote a blog post about my goals for 2014 and one of those goals was to speak at a blogging Read More ...

Project Fab – My Vision for 2014

Thumbnail image for Project Fab – My Vision for 2014

I've stated previously that I don't really make New Year's resolutions.  I just reassess my goals and vision and figure out what I accomplished the previous year and which goals I want to accomplish in the New Year.  I like to create a vision board as a visual reminder of the things that I want to do - land the job that I will truly enjoy (time to make my exit from the legal field?), make sure my health stays on track (#diabeticproblems), and do more of the things that make me happy.  I put places I want to go - New Orleans for a Saints home game is high on the list this Read More ...

New Year, New Goals

2014,January 1
Thumbnail image for New Year, New Goals

Happy 2014!  There's nothing like the beginning of a new year to make you take stock of your life and want to make some changes.  I don't make New Year's Resolutions, but I do sometimes reevaluate my goals in my personal life and blogging life.  I don't want to say, "I will work out at least 5 days a week" because (a) I know this would not happen every week and I don't want to feel bad for not having time to work out 5 days a week; and (b) this is a lifestyle change that would not have a finite end.  I like to set goals that I can Read More ...
