My Top 5 Stella & Dot Necklaces for Spring

Share Button

The new spring 2014 Stella & Dot line is out and I do have my favorites — however, I also like some of the classics such as the Pegasus which I think is one of the most epic pieces they have EVER created!

The truth is  — I am a bit of a Stella & Dot junkie. Good thing my friend and dealer stylist Kristin helps feed my addiction, otherwise I’m not sure what I would do!

Here are a few of my favorites for this season.

I know. I KNOW! And that’s my sweet girl in the Medina — because she’s too good for a cloth bib —  hahaha! Can you imagine?

Each piece is so beautiful and there is something so special about each one.

Which is your favorite?

Sunday’s are always family days and we pretty much stay in Alexandria. There is always something going on, so we never need to go very far. This weekend was the 12th Annual King Street Art Festival and the weather was just marvelous! Breezy, sunny with a touch of fall in the air. Alexandria is a historic city with brick sidewalks, cobblestone streets, colorful row homes and more. On the way back to the car I wanted to show the Mr. {Read More}

Back to School Fall Style Session at South Moon Under

Share Button

You got me. It’s not a back to school fall style session for the kids, but for us, the mamas (and non-mamas too!) By now most of us parents of school age kids can cross back to school shopping off our lists. Now it’s time for OUR back to school shopping! Yes, yes — it’s time to get out and update your fall wardrobe — after all we need to look good for back to school night, and that bake sale {Read More}

Give Your Mama Outfit an Edge with a Skull Print Scarf

Sometimes you just want to add a bit of edginess to a classic look, at least I do. That’s what happened last Thursday when I wore this skull print scarf that I bought at H&M for $3 from their sale bin two weeks ago. I was going on Let’s Talk Live to do my monthly segment and the dress I was going to wear was a bit too snug in the chest area — the good news is that it fits because of the 12 {Read More}

Sponsored post in collaboration with The Motherhood and Look Good Feel Better. We all like to look and feel good, that’s just natural. No one purposely sets out to do the opposite — at least I wouldn’t think they do! As a woman and mother, I’ve had my ups and my doooooowns and each time with help and support I get back up, get it sorted and move on.  Many times when we do start anew, we start by changing {Read More}

It’s never EVER easy to get back into working out after an extended ‘leave of absence.’ As mamas we are busy, yes, but depending on the age of our children, our “busy” can vary. For instance, a new mom has a variety of challenges and fills her days differently than a mother with school age kids. You get it.  So when it comes to working out, getting in shape and feeling good the same applies. Fitness classes are NOT a one size fits {Read More}

Date Night Idea: Cirque du Soleil Amaluna at National Harbor

Share Button

I received complimentary tickets — no other compensation given. Opinions are my own. The lights were turned off and the audience was still as we sat waiting for the start of Amaluna,Cirque du Soleil, when my husband leans in and whispers “Thank you. It was a good idea to get out on our own for a date night” and then of course, made a move for a good old fashioned make out session. Well, ok. Not making out, but you know, a little {Read More}
