I Am My Mother’s Daughter

With Mother’s Day just a few days away, I can’t help the bittersweet feeling that always overwhelms me during this time of the year. I love seeing all the blog/Instagram/Facebook posts dedicated to finding the perfect gift for Mom and celebrating everything that moms do for their families, but it hurts at the same time, because I know I can’t do any of that with …

Make a Statement (Necklace)

One of my favorite things about styling outfits for myself or my friends is accessorizing! There’s nothing better than taking a favorite outfit that you’ve rocked so many times and infusing some freshness into it, giving you endless combinations and an excuse to keep buying those jewelry pieces that catch your eye. Today’s post is all about taking a plain dress and transforming it into …

Travel Files: Philadelphia

I’m a really, really lucky gal. My travel benefits through work are something I’m extremely thankful for, no matter how bad my job can seem on certain days. Traveling has been a big part of my life since I was about 12, from spending a week in a gorgeous Rome over Thanksgiving break in the 8th grade to taking a 24 hour trip to California to catch a one-time-only …

Cyber Monday 2015: Best Fashion & Beauty Deals

Thanks to retailers trying to grab more revenue from office workers who aren’t quite ready to return to a regular work week, we all benefit from another day full of online sales and limited-time deals. So, welcome to Cyber Monday 2015! It’s the perfect opportunity to browse more sales without leaving your bed, do more holiday shopping in your pajamas and snag a bunch few more items for yourself that you missed …

Resale & Thrift Store Shopping for Plus Sizes

Let’s be honest here, we all would love to look fabulous and save money at the same time, right? Nothing feels better than finding something gorgeous at a fraction of the price, meaning you can have those strappy Kate Spade heels and still have enough room in your budget for that Girls’ Night Out on Saturday. But no matter what size you are, shopping at thrift …

Travel Files: Columbus

Thanks to my sometimes fantastic job, I get the chance to travel on a whim. When it comes to traveling, I tend to fly by the seat of my pants and end up being really spontaneous. So when one of my best friends (aka Carrie from Cardigans and Crossbones) in Columbus decided to get married a month ago and have a low-key celebration, I knew …
