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 …

Many of you guys have been asking me about this outfit I wore on my Instagram last week. I’m super bummed to inform you guys that the jeans and top are sold out. The good news? I found similar options!

Hallelujah for clothes that actually fit, right!? When I’m on-the-go comfort is always key but I like feeling sexy at the same time.  Nothing screams sexier than these sleek Steve Madden black heels I bought at Nordstrom a couple of months ago (I got them in nude too!). They’re surprisingly comfortable in my opinion. Imagine if I went with a …

During our West Coast adventure, we stopped in San Francisco to explore and take pictures for the day! If you’re a subscriber to my newsletter, then you saw yesterday’s talking about the crazy weather and blooper moments we had. When I finally found the perfect little spot to hang out and snap some pictures, I was too nervous to take my leather jacket off because it was so windy! (I was not wearing a bra!)

I love San Francisco but…..A serious Note to self: Always layer up when you’re in the bay area.

Hey Cuties! I thought I would share these two outfits I wore when I was in Napa Valley last week. They were my favorite from our 3- part west coast vacation trip! We had such an amazing time getting to see Napa for the first time. The highlight for me was trying fun new things like the Wine Train and riding in a hot air balloon at sunrise. It was magical! We drank tons of wine and it’s safe to say we brought a few bottles home with us. When in Napa, of course you have to dress up for …
