I just dropped Sweetie off at the vet and as ridiculous as this might sound – I am emotional about it. She’s getting spayed today and it’s a decision we’ve been dreading for months.

I realized there’s pros and cons to every decision in life. I did tons of research and called her breeder for advice, and finally came to the conclusion that we need to get her fixed. Our vet said that in Sweetie’s case it’s better to do it now at 7 months instead of waiting because she’s such a big girl and soon entering her heat phase. …

I finally sorted through our New York Fashion Week camera roll and decided to rally up some of my favorite street style moments.  Stevie rented a new lens (can’t remember the name!!) and after seeing how lovely these photos turned out, we decided we’re going to get it. If you saw my NYFW VLOG, then you witnessed the madness and 3-plus outfit changes in one day so it was nice having a lens to take …

Kicking off Freebie Friday with love from NYFW! Yesterday was seriously one of those no-time-to-stop-and-chill days. It was so busy.. but busy is good, right? I had a couple of exciting press meetings (one at Glamour Mag’s offices!!!) which took up most of the afternoon. Stevie and I had about 30 minutes to shoot this outfit you’ll see below + grab a quick bite (which we ended up eating in our Uber LOL).

When we got back to the hotel, we both wanted to collapse from heat exhaustion, but there was no time for sleep. We had to change and …

Today I’m going to share some tips for maintaining a positive attitude in the workplace. I know it can be tough (especially if you’re under a lot of pressure) but keeping the workplace vibe upbeat and positive can make a huge difference in the success of your business, and your life.

As you guys know, I started this blog on my own. I was the only employee for several years before Steve came on as my partner. At first, it was hard letting go of certain responsibilities when I was used to doing it all myself. Not to mention, working …

Stevie and I decided we were going book a trip to Alaska after talking about the things we wanted to do before we have kids (nothing cooking in the belly yet, just thinking ahead here!). I’m always distracted with something, whether it’s Sweetie or work projects, so  I knew if this trip was going to happen, Stevie would need to make it happen for the both of us. Stevie started researching things and decided to surprise me with an Alaskan Adventure! The best part? I told him not to tell me anything we were going to do, because for once …

You read the title right. Several months ago, I got an email from a man named Jordan. He told me that his wifey-to-be (Rachel) was a HUGE supporter of mine. He then went on to personally invite Stevie and I to their August 2016 wedding in Canada. Never in a million years did he think we would even see the email! My first reaction was, “OMG. This is so sweet!” My second thought was, “Why do I have this strong feeling in my heart that I need to be there?” It took us just a few minutes after reading it …

6 Tips For Packing Makeup

Beauty Travel | August 11, 2016

Summer is almost over, but that doesn’t mean the traveling has to stop! Stevie and I are going out of town today for 2 weeks, but before we go I have to share a fun fact about me when I’m traveling.

One of the toughest things about traveling is condensing my makeup down to JUST one bag. I instantly go into sudden panic mode.

I’m not a diva when I travel, so I for me it’s the thought of forgetting something I might need so I over-pack. I think most girls can relate with me there. After countless trips and …
