My Nordstrom Sale Finds!


As I mentioned in an earlier post this week, the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale for Women & Kids is not to be missed! I happened to find myself in a Nordstrom yesterday & ended up grabbing a few items that were too good to pass up! (isn’t that always our story?!?!)

Happy Friday!


Happy Friday & to a 3-Day Weekend!!!

I love the first part of my day, taking Dexie for a walk. Lately I’ve been bringing my camera with me to snap photos of the beautiful flowers in the neighborhood, but today I thought I’d capture a few of Dexie herself.

Have a great weekend, From Dexie

I’m sure most of you have some sort of fun plans with family & friends over the weekend and we wish you a fun, safe holiday weekend!

Tech Chic


For most of us, the one item that is with us always is our phone. It’s our connection to the world, our way of touching base, working remotely & snapping pictures in the moment. Since it is our prize possession (and they aren’t cheap!), we should honor how hard it works by covering it with one of these chic tech cases!

Whether you are into simple, fashionable, floral, goofy, vibrant or personal … there’s hundreds to choose from! I’ve chose some of my favorite styles to share with you.

Color Crush // Coral


It’s no secret by now that I have a serious color crush on coral. It’s the perfect mix between red and orange, touches on the perfect sunset, enhances a summer tan and can take an outfit from so-so to just right.

Kate Spade Watch // 8. Kendra Scott Danielle Earrings // 9. The Cambridge Satchel Co. Handbag // 10. C. Wonder Lacquer Box

Slowly but surely I’m incorporating coral into my home décor with accessories, added a refurbished flea market find into a great porch accent table and my Dad built me an AMAZING laundry room riser for the washer & dryer that got the final touch with coral paint! (at first he thought I wanted to paint it blue because he thought, well coral comes from the ocean so it must be … thanks for the laugh Dad!)


Join Me Next Year…


Who wants to join me next year in NYC for the National Stationary Show??? As a self-admitted hoarder of notebooks, notepads, greeting cards, etc …. I am beyond envious of those that are able to browse aisle after aisle of the 3 day show.

Monday Momentum // Stick Your Neck Out


Being a part of ALT for Everyone last week was such a great experience in that I connected with so many fabulous bloggers, learned an incredible amount & got my creative juices flowing! Our Keynote Speaker was blogger, Joy Cho from Oh Joy!, who is at the top of her game in terms of running an amazing blog & connected businesses. I couldn’t stop thinking about her presentation and in the end, I’ve really embraced that you truly need to stick your neck out for what you want in life. Hard work & persistence will help overcome those road blocks life throws at you and leave you with a clear vision of your ultimate goal.


ALT For Everyone



Ok … so I must apologize in advance if I’m a little M.I.A. as I’ve been attending ALT For Everyone, a three day online bloggers conference. I’m determined to keep learning as much as I can in anything I do. These kind of seminars really set the wheels in motion and reenergize the mind to stay on task towards your ultimate goal!
