We all know that I'm a little obsessed with diaper bags.  I love a quality diaper bag!  By quality, I mean a diaper bag that is versatile and practical, functional and fashionable.  It's so important as a mother to feel fashionable even when I'm at my worst and don't have time to take care of myself.   A beautiful diaper bag can make any tired mom feel like a rock star!

Step Forward and Try Something New
October 31, 2017

This is a Sponsored Post for Famous Footwear and The Shelf.  However, all opinions are my own. The seasons have changed, the Holidays are coming, and I sense a shift with everything around me.  I love this time of year.  It's the beginning of a new school year for my kids, and I usually do a lot of self-reflecting after a hectic summer.  It's time to change up my routine! During the summer, we go on a lot of road trips.  The kids love the theme parks like Legoland and I get my exercise running around with them. But the best thing about staying at the hotel is that I also get to lounge around a little while they play!  It's a win win situation! Because it so busy …

Staying Fashionable in Florida's Summer Weather
May 23, 2017

This summer seems to be creeping up fast and furiously.  The weather is more unpredictable than ever. I am greeted by mosquitoes and humidity when I step outside.  It just makes me want to hibernate inside. I find myself walking around in tanks and cut offs.  I like loungewear.  It's just easier that way.  But it's also easy to get in a fashion rut when your too hot to bother with trying. I have so many beautiful clothes that just sit in the closet because I just want what's easy to slip on. At 46, I've been realizing that I can't just leave the house in tanks and cut offs or sweats anymore.  These are the clothes that reflect who I am; laid back and on …

April 4, 2017

I often think about how my life would have turned out, had I stayed living in Miami.  There is so much life there from the Clubs to the Beaches, you can feel the youthful vibe everywhere.  The song, "Welcome to Miami," by Will Smith says it all. "Here I am in the place where I come to let go-Miami The bass and the sun set low. Everyday like a Mardi-Gras, everybody party all day No work- all play, ok" So, as I reflect on my young, carefree days, I remember fashion back then.  In the late 90's everything was about Aliens.  From wallets to shirts to stickers. Alien Top - $35.95 & FREE Shipping Aliens were big and sort of reflected the futuristic techno/trance music that was popular.  But guess what?  Their …

Urban Market Bags
January 15, 2017

I always try to remember to bring bags to use at the farm or grocery store.  The farm I go to requests that you bring your own.  But they will also give you boxes if needed that they are recycling.  Aldi also expects you to bring your own bags. I still use plastic bags for dirty diapers and such.  I don't spend money on the fancy plastic bags.  It's not necessary and it's wasteful.  I gave away my Diaper Genie for this reason. But it would be nice to have a cute reusable bag for groceries and such. I found these reusable shopping bags called Urban Market Bags and took one on my trip with me for the holidays.  It was my emergency bag in case I …

Getting Ready for the Holiday Season with OshKosh B'gosh
November 27, 2016

In Florida, we look forward to any change in the weather towards the holiday season, even if it's just a few degrees.  We are grateful not to be stuck inside.  For some people, snow signifies the holiday season but for us, it's in the spirit of being surrounded by family, eating, shopping and kids' laughter. We don't buy a lot of winter wear but when we do, it's well thought out.  Sometimes a cardigan can just be worn by itself.  But it's also a great add on to take to the movie theater or the mall as it can get chilly in those places. My boys loved these OshKosh B'gosh Space Dye Shawl Collar Cardigans. They can be worn alone as seen here but would also look …

  How cute is this shirt?  I want one for every year, up until eighteen-years-old! haha.  Just kidding.  Not really. This is the "I'm This Many" Two-Year Old Birthday T-Shirt."

Apricot Lane South Florida
October 2, 2016

    I love fashion, especially after working for Saks Fifth Ave.  Fashion never seemed the same after that job.  I was fashionably affected and now I have different standards.  Unfortunately, I don't have the wallet to shop there for clothes.  I do have a great eye for fashion though and am always on the lookout for interesting pieces.         So when I stepped into Apricot Lane Boutique in Delray Beach, I knew there would be so much to fall in love with.         They also have great accessories and gifts that are really reasonably priced.   Some of these items would be great gifts or stocking stuffers.         If you're looking for something chic and stylish, you will find it at Apricot Lane Boutique Delray Beach, Florida.  Some of the brands they carry …

Back To School in Style with Osh Kosh B'Gosh
September 14, 2016

  This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Oshkosh B’gosh; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. The summer is never over in Florida, but when it's time to go back to school my kids sense of style definitely changes.  Living in pajamas has taken a back seat and "what to wear today" becomes one of the first questions out of my son's mouth. I try to grab his clothes for the day while he's not looking, but when your almost five, this is considered complete disrespect.  As soon as he sees what I have in my hands, he falls to the floor, hands up, and dramatically says, "No! I am not wearing that today!  I want long sleeves!" I tell him it's too …

Helen Ficalora for the Fall
September 2, 2016

Who doesn't like feathers?  They are so beautiful and simple... Feathers symbolize different things to different cultures.  In Arizona, where I grew up, feathers are everywhere, whether they are on dream catchers, attires, or mixed with jewelry.  They are truly beautiful.  Now that I live in Florida, it's not uncommon to see a peacock walking around, so I have studied the intricacy of a peacock feather, it's amazing.  Feathers also remind me of fall.  The cooler air, the change in colors in the trees, the warmer, earthy looking home decorations, it just fits.  Feathers and fall go together. And jewelry and fall go together! Helen Ficalora has a great selection for fall charms and I got this beautiful Feather Big Mini Charm!  It's also available in …

3 Reasons to do Your Back to School Shopping in One Store.
August 25, 2016

This post is sponsored by Vocalpoint and Dick’s Sporting Goods. All opinions are my own. I had no clue what back to school shopping would be like this year.  I have always done it myself with the kids at home.  I'd go to one store for a backpack and another for shoes, another for clothing.  But when you have two going to school, something has to change.  It's not easy running around.  The thought of doing all my back to school shopping in one place was exhilarating! So we took the kids to DICK’s Sporting Goods ®.  We made it a family event.  However, they quickly got sidetracked when they saw the balls, haha. There are three reasons why everyone should try back to school shopping in one …

Roewe Bohemian Printed Ethnic Style Beach Dress
August 15, 2016

This post may contain affiliate links and if you click on them, I will receive commission. I love anything Bohemian. It's my style and I'm always looking for Bohemian clothing.  I buy everything online. When I saw the price of the Roewe Bohemian Neck Tie Vintage Printed Ethnic Style Mini Beach Dress, I was skeptical but it looked so pretty I was willing to check it out.  I wasn't crazy at the fact that it is 100% Polyester. But on the other hand, it doesn't have to be dry cleaned.  That's a bonus! I am wearing a large and it fits well but if I were to wear it with a bathing suit, I would get an extra large.  It is super cute on and I've had so …

timi & leslie Marcelle 7-Piece Bag Set in Copper/Saddle
July 6, 2016

When I receive a timi & leslie bag, I always feel like I am getting the ultimate experience when I open the package.  I know that no matter what, I have something that is quality, well made, fashionable and durable. The Marcelle 7-Piece Bag Set -in Copper/Saddle does not disappoint.  The color is beautiful and exactly as the name says:  copper.  The clutch is lighter (saddle) and matches the saddle details on the bag and has a credit card holder inside along with a zippered pocket. I love carrying my bags, but when the two little ones were younger I used the adjustable cross body, detachable strap so I could wear the bag hands free.  This is a great option when you have multiple kids.  I also …

Helen Ficalora Summer Jewelry
July 2, 2016

I tend to wear more jewelry in the winter rather than the summer.  The summers here in Florida are sticky and the last thing I want is jewelry sticking to me. That's why I love the charms from Helen Ficalora.  They are so light and weightless that I forget I'm wearing them.  But they add so much to a simple summer outfit, even just a white tank top, that I rarely take off my chain.  In fact, I can sleep in it.  It's no surprise that this is their best seller. Helen Ficalora has so many options when it comes to jewelry.  A simple cutout charm like mine can enhance even a tank top or a dressed up shirt in picture above.  I love her jewelry because …

The Shine Collection
May 30, 2016

If your looking for lounge wear your in the right place. If your looking for beach wear, your in the right place and if your looking for cruise wear you've found it! Dianne Brickman, owner of The Shine Collection, based in Del Ray has a collection of tunics and totes made from hand block printed fabrics imported from India. They are all lovely. I can't wait to use my Flutter Tunic Super Paisley and matching tote for my cruise. It has a drawstring empire waist to give you some shape and white cotton detail at the neckline and edges. I think I was drawn to this one specifically because it reminds me of Greece. The colors scream "come to the Greek …

Sandalwood and Gemstone Mala by LOVEPRAY JEWELRY
March 3, 2016

This is a sponsored post, however, all opinions are my own. I love Rose Quartz.  I have vivid memories of the first time I wore it.  I had climbed out of post partum depression and a wonderful woman recommended that I review her baby bonding bracelet.  This was fine but I wasn't pregnant anymore.  I guess she knew what she was suggesting but couldn't say it.  I put it under my pillow and slept like a baby.  I also had deep, loving dreams.  I was hooked!  This was such a great experience that I started loving all kinds of yoga inspired jewelry. That is why I wanted to review the Healing Sandalwood and Matte Gemstone Necklace. It is stunning in the picture but when this …
