OOTD: Earthy Spring

It’s been cold and rainy the last few days which has me reaching for cozy staples to weather the dreary temps. Last Thursday, it was snowing. You read right. SNOWING!!!! As much I want to wear brights and pastels for spring - it’s just not gonna happen in this miserable weather. So instead I decided to go earthy, and combine some of my favorite muted colors. I mean, who says olive and coral is just for fall anyway?

BTW, I'm loooving this tee! It’s super soft and adds just the right amount of color when paired with this f21 utility jacket. I've been really impressed with the few Lucky Brand tops I've purchased so far. I'm definitely going to look into getting some more. For now, I’m just hoping and praying warmer weather is headed our way. Because I don’t know how much of this I, (or my hair) can take!

FabKids: Spring Stripes

Now that spring is in full swing we can finally start enjoying some outdoor time. After what seems like an eternity indoors, my munchkin is finally getting some much needed fresh air. That of course means an opportunity to whip out some of her spring dresses that have been patiently waiting in the back of her closet. Like this, striped skater dress from FabKids.

Creamy Turkey Sausage Pasta with Veggies

If there is one thing that my daughter shares with me, it’s a love of pasta. Angel hair, ziti, shells – you name it, we’ll eat it. Our love runs deep for the starchy food. Unfortunately, my husband doesn’t share the same sentiment. So I usually have to reserve pasta dishes for when it’s just us girls. Granted, it’s not the “healthiest” of meals, but I believe you can enjoy everything in moderation. Especially pasta. No one should go through life depriving themselves of a big bowl of pasta, I mean, YOLO right?? So when Hillshire Farms asked me to create a recipe using their smoked sausage I knew exactly what I wanted to make. A creamy turkey sausage pasta with veggies!

OOTD: I'm No Angel

A few days ago Lane Bryant launched their biggest campaign to date. The #ImNoAngel movement is a message about redefining what sexy is. A bold statement of self-confidence and loving yourself no matter big, small, tall, or whatever you are, in a very tongue and cheek way.

Lane Bryant was even kind enough to send me an “I’m No Angel” t-shirt to help spread the word. And even though I love what this message stands for, I wasn’t sure if I was going to participate because I’ve heard so many mixed feelings about how forward, and in-you-face the advertisement is. But once I tried it on, and my daughter asked me what the “I’m No Angel” on my shirt meant, I knew that I had to take part because it’s an important dialogue we need to have. Especially with young girls.

No Shame In My Instagram Game

A few days ago I took one of those online quizzes to see what my Instagram says about me. (My profile is @jennymoyett, if you want to follow along.) I, like many of you am obsessed with picture-sharing app. In fact, it’s my go-to distraction surpassing Facebook, or Twitter on my phone. Yet, I sometimes struggle with what to share and what to keep private. Especially as a blogger I feel to the pressure to keep up with the Joneses if you will, and constantly share content and pieces of my life. Yet, I don’t want to oversaturate or overexpose myself or my family. It’s a constant struggle.

Does anyone else feel like that?

Anyway, the results from the quiz revealed that I am an “Introspective Philosopher”. I question whether or not I should post something, and don’t feel the need to share something if it has no meaning. Which pretty much hits the nail on the head, if you ask me. But I also think who we follow also says a lot about who we are too.

Spring 2015: Cherry Blossom Beauty Products

One of the best things about spring is the parade of flowering trees. Including everyone’s favorite, the cherry blossom! I absolutely love them, don’t you? These delicate blooms not only paint the town pink, they also delight our senses. Given my weakness for these precious petals I’ve gathered up some Cherry Blossom picks that will leave you feeling soft and sweet long after the blooming season is gone.
