Fabkids Sequin & Tulle


With the holidays right around the corner there's plenty of reasons to get all dolled up. Just like our little black dress, every little girl should have a dress that makes her sparkle and shine. This Sequin and Tulle dress Arianna received courtesy of FabKids is perfect for those special occasions. She practically ripped it right out of my arms when I opened it! Needless to say, Little Missy was excited to try it on. I love how the stark black tights look against the bright pink dress. It's a great contrast. We dressed it up with some cute kitty flats and I even let her borrow one of my clutches to complete her fab outfit. Now she's ready to hit the town!

Easy Apple Spice Cake Recipe for Fall Entertaining


Fall is one of my favorite times to entertain and have people over. I don’t know if it’s because of the cozy weather or the festive decorations, but something about it all is very warm and inviting. As a host, I always strive to make my house guests feel welcomed and comfortable by offering them something to eat and drink. So when Starbucks asked me to share a favorite fall recipe to pair with their delicious coffee, I knew I would have to search through my recipe arsenal for just the right one. I’ll admit, I’m no pastry chef but I like to treat my friends and family to homemade sweets I baked myself. I figure it’s the thought that counts anyways. (Besides, it doesn’t hurt that it leaves the house smelling ah-mazing in the process.)

Style Inspiration: Jennifer Lawrence

Last week the fashion world lost one of its greats with the passing of renowned fashion designer, Oscar de la Renta. Many celebrities have expressed their condolences including Sarah Jessica Parker who wrote a heartfelt letter for the Hollywood Reporter. But Jennifer Lawrence paid special tribute last week by stepping out in one of the late designer’s creations. This lace LWD is perfection. In fact, I love the whole look from head-to-toe, including the pop of red lip! So it's my pick for style inspiration of the week. It’s simple, classic, and a great outfit anyone to wear- especially for upcoming holiday parties. What do you think - are you a fan of this look?

Frozen Contest Finalists + $100 Kohl's Giveaway!

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Kohl's. 
I received a sample to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating. 

A few weeks ago I shared with you about the national call to Sing Your Heart Out for a contest in collaboration with Disney and Kohl’s. Disney Frozen fans submitted videos of themselves, their kids, and/or the entire family singing “Let it Go” for the chance to appear in a Kohl’s holiday commercial that will air during the 2014 American Music Awards (AMAs) broadcast. Thousands of video entries were submitted and now you can view the favorites here!

Practicing Healthy Habits With Listerine

 I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for LISTERINE. I received samples for this 
review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

A few weeks ago I introduced my family to some Listerine products and over the last couple of days we’ve not only tested them out but also chosen our favorites as well. As predicted my daughter favored the Barbie SMART RINSE MOUTHWASH, which makes me happy because it provides 12-hour cavity protection and strengthens teeth 99% better than brushing alone. While my husband preferred the ease of the LISTERINE POCKETPACKS because he can discreetly put them in his pocket at work and freshen his breath throughout the day while he talks to clients. Unlike, gum or mints they actually kill 99% of the germs that cause bad breath which makes this little strips very effective.
