Blog, Father's Day Gifts, Fathers Day, Giveaway, Miss Em's, Quality Time -

My parents lately been saying to me, “I don’t need gifts, I just want to spend time with you”.  It’s such a simple and powerful statement.  They don’t need anything that I would be spending my money on, and let’s face it, it would probably end up in a bin for Goodwill in 3-5 years.  Instead they want to create memories with me, hear about my day, laugh with me (or at me), maybe even to the point of tears!  The greatest gift that I can give them is my time. I personally know that that is a lot easier...

Keep getting invites to LuLaRoe parties on Facebook?  Friends hosting parties in their homes?  There are definitely a lot of options to check out LLR clothing!

This winter I was perfectly content with Christmas being 60 degrees and...

Columbus Consignment Stores, Consignment Stores, Dresses, Jewelry, Necklace, Thrift Store Finds -

All too often I'm getting asked where my clothes are from. "Did you get that from StitchFix?" "Is that a new dress?" "What a cute shirt - where did you get it?" Many people are surprised when I tell them that I typically get all of my clothes from consignment stores (or the sales racks in department stores).  I'm too cheap to spend hundreds of dollars on a dress, shirt, skirt, etc and only own a few items in my closet that were splurges, like Betsy Johnson heals, a Michael Kors bag, or my wedding gown (I wouldn't even call that...

If you’re like me, your fridge is completely lined with wedding invititations, which means bridal showers are right around the corner.  As someone who has been to a few (more than a few) bridal showers, here is my bridal shower 101. What to Wear? In the past I have been someone that has felt over dressed, as well as severely underdressed for different showers.  Put together an idea of what you want to wear prior to the event – I promise it’ll pay off. Don’t wait until that morning to throw something together.  You should think about the location, the theme, the attendees,...
