Happy love day!

How has everyone’s day been?! Did you get lots of LOVE??

I received lots of kisses from my boys and…the flu!

I went to bed at 7.00 last night, imagine that. I was in the middle of doing a post and I felt weak and had the chills.

Today I had to pass up on a Valentine’s Day party with Little M and we opted for making those Chilean alfajores I had promised to bake yesterday and the little man got his hair cut.

The Mr. and I had a weekend in Georgetown, so not doing anything tonight. I’m just going to lounge on the sofa and watch GLEE!

So, happy love day everyone!

How did you spend the day? Any big plans for tonight?

In fact, {Read More}

Last week I along with a group of talented women — more specifically, mamas, were part of the Hot Momma Haute panel. The beautiful (and very tall!) Monica Byrd asked me to be a part of it and I happily agreed. Along with other like-minded bloggers and businesswomen we had a great time talking about what it means to be a hot mama and talked about the trials and tribulations of motherhood, our personal style, beauty must-haves (helloooooo dry shampoo!) {Read More}

See video on how to apply red lipstick and see for yourself how it instantly dries: Hi, I’m addicted to red lipstick and I’m not ashamed. I am a red lipstick kind of gal — different shades of red, matte, glossy, tinted, drugstore brand, high-end brands. You name it, I probably own it. For some reason, I didn’t pay much attention when a package of Makeup Academy cosmetics arrived for me a few weeks ago. I peeked in and saw {Read More}

You know how much I preach about looking and feeling good no matter your size, budget or time constraints — I’ve been on the other side and it’s terrible! I’m not a stylist nor do I want to be one, but I do enjoy encouraging and helping women gain confidence, learn to take style risks and make themselves a priority and using myself as an example. Maybe motivational speaker/comedian is what I’m meant to do! This past Saturday, I hosted {Read More}
