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 ...

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 ...

I had the pleasure of attending the Belk Fall Fashion Preview last week at Southpark Mall here in Charlotte.  As you know, I love shopping at Belk and just recently worked with them on a campaign to introduce their new crown & ivy line (see those posts here, here, and here).  It's always great working with the Belk team and especially getting the scoop on what will be hot in the upcoming season from the Belk Fashion Director, Arlene Goldstein.  I saw some pieces in the presentation that I couldn't wait to share as they will be some of the items on my fall must-haves list.  The look above was 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 ...
