My first blog post of 2017 was all about how I wanted to share a few different ways to make your life easier or better. I've posted about making life simpler by meal planning, then how to stay healthy during flu season, and then what to do if you get the cold of flu. But today I'm sharing something that will help the relationships in your life. It is something so simple, it's called UNPLUGGING your TV, turning off your phone and computer and simply enjoying family time!
Nothing too fancy here, just a sweatshirt and a vest. I swear I've been living in grey sweatshirts this winter. They have been my go to, wearing crop sweatshirts over my gym clothes, sweatshirts for running errands, and even sweatshirts for a date night. Sweatshirts are so effortless and still can be dressed up or dressed down. Plus who doesn't love a good graphic sweatshirt with a clever saying?
First off SORRY if you are sick or if your family is sick. We have yet to have to deal with this in our household, knock on wood. So if the cold or flu is sweeping through your household. Here are a few measures you can take to get you feeling better.
My facebook newsfeed has been slammed with posts about colds and stomach flus. There are so many yucky bugs going around so I thought I'd do a two part series on colds and flus. The first post will be about preventing sickness in your house and the second post will be about what to do when the cold or stomach flu enters your house. Hopefully these will keep you guys healthy this winter.
Winter is still in full force here. The temps have been dipping so low so taking these photos is pretty miserable. I do love how beautiful the snow backdrop looks. I'd be nice to get a few more pictures in the snow, but I don't know if I'm brave enough to hangout in the cold for pictures. This post I'm talking a bit about how to wear different types of layers and winter accessories.
HI!! I'm back and quickly gone again. I wanted to post one last blog post in 2016. I have been so busy with Christmas and our remodel that I haven't had a chance to blog lately. Every January I usually do a series on healthy habits. This instead of putting together lists of things you should do I decided I would dive deeper into a few things that make my life simplier. For me the #1 is Meal Planning.
YIkes Christmas is just days away.... have you been putting off getting Christmas gifts or need a quick hostess gift for Christmas or New Years Eve? I put togehter a few quick and easy presents you can get at most local stores. If your in the Tri-Cities area I suggest you head to Lemon Grass Gifts for hostess gifts or any last minute gifts. They keep it stocked and ready for last minute shoppers. I always try and shop LOCAL FIRST, but if you have no luck then Kohls, Target, Pier 1, or Macy's (home section) is a great place to find something just days before Christmas.
SNOW SNOW SNOW!! Can you tell I'm excited about the snow. We have been getting a ton of snow this week, it has been so fun. The best part about the snow here is that it only sticks around for a week to 10 days then it is gone. So when the snow comes my snow boots come out. I love my big snow boots but I only really get a chance to wear them a few times a year. They are chucky, huge, yet so warm and comfortable. So I'm blogging about how you can sport your snow boots from day to night and a few ways to make them look not so bulky.
Something quick and easy this Monday morning! I love getting the mail this time of year cause there is nothing more I adore than getting Christmas cards. This year I finally have a good place to display the cards. What I love most about this "diy project" is that it only costs $1.29. So check out my Christmas Card Display and a few other ideas I can't wait to try next Christmas.
I was so excited when Deidra from 180 Consulting contacted me and asked if I was interested in doing a collaboration. That is one thing I love about being back in my hometown is that there are more opportunities for collaborations. Deidra and I met and decided to pick 1 item and see how each one of us would style it. We picked velvet pants, which is such a big trend right now. So much so that Deidra and I are GIVING AWAY A VELVET CLUTCH FROM EXPRESS! You can enter to win below. But first check out how we each styled our pants. A big shout out to my gf JoAnn for the photography lesson and for shooting me.
