Tuesday Trend: Neon Hues
August 16, 2017 at 12:10 am 0
  From sunglasses, to dresses and even pillows the neon trend has been going strong all summer long. In shades such as pink, blue, yellow and green it has no signs of slowing down. I even noticed Victoria Beckham's line with neon pink sweaters for fall. So what is the right way to wear a bold trend like this? I'm not a fan of throwing my style to the wind and adapting to a new trend to fill my closet. We all know there are many that will not work and they always come and go. Take the 90's trend for instance, I know I will never look good in that crop top. So you have to pick and choose how you make the trend adapt to your style. If you don't feel comfortable wearing a full neon dress, just add some neon to your accessories such as earrings or a bag. I always love finding on trend pieces for bargain prices, so that I won't be upset if it goes out of style by next summer. I snagged this dress from Target for under $30! Have you tried neon this summer?

Travel Tuesday: New Orleans, Louisiana
August 8, 2017 at 10:13 pm 0
This past April I got to take a fun trip down to New Orleans, and it is finally making it to the blog. New Orleans is known for Mardi Gras and Bourbon street but it is also rich in history, cuisine and culture. I was able to take Willow with me and there is tons of kid-friendly places to help entertain little ones as well. We stayed in the heart of the city at the Windsor Court Hotel (which I highly recommend). It is walking distance to many places including the Aquarium, bar, restaurants and the River Walk. Here are some great activities to see and do while you are in The Big Easy. Dress and Shoes: c/o William B Friends
  1. Grab a Trolley Car on Canal Street 
This is fun for the whole family! Grab a Trolley Car starting at the end of Canal Street and take it 7 miles to the New Orleans Museum of Art. The passes are only $1.25 (yes you heard me right). They are so sweet about accommodating strollers for the kiddos too. You get to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.  2. Audobon Aquarium of the Americas  This Aquarium is truly amazing, and you feel like you are submerged beneath the sea with their walk-through tunnels full of sharks, rays and sea turtles. They have live feeding times, with educational sessions explaining all the sea creatures in the aquarium. Willow even got to touch the sting rays! Quick Tip: If you arrive and the line is long, sneak over to the theater and buy them there. Just a little secret to get the fun started! Dress and Shoes: c/0 William B Friends        3. Stroll The Riverwalk The Riverwalk is located right next to the Mississippi River, and offers many activities. Including steamboat rides, a full marketplace mall for amazing shopping and many restaurants. Quick Tip: We stopped by the Crazy Lobster for a moscow mule. The laws in New Orleans actually allow you to take your drink in a to go cup and walk around in public. The only stipulation is that it must be in a plastic glass! Enjoy!! Shirt, Jeans, Shoes: c/0 William B Friends 4. Beignets Beignets are a must when in The Big Easy. They are these delicious little squares of dough, that are fried and covered in powder sugar. No joke...this was my first stop when I got to New Orleans. But the real question is Cafe Du Monde or Cafe Beignet. Cafe Du Monde is a historic staple for beignets, opening its doors in 1862 and usually always has a line out the door. The other option, that is also extremely satisfying is the Cafe Beignet. They have three locations, that boast an old school diner vibe, and usually there is no line. Jeans, Shirt, Tank Top, Jeans, Shoes: c/o William B Friends  5.  House of Blues With concerts, live music and burlesque shows scheduled Tuesday through Saturday, you can't go wrong with a night out at the House of Blues. It hosts some of the cities best live music performances and they even have a Gospel Bruch on Sundays!   Honestly this list could have been filled with over 100 restaurants, and activities but that wouldn't even scratch the surface of things to do in this beautiful city! I hope this little cheat sheet helps you plan your next trip to New Orleans. Where are you traveling to this summer??   Thank you to Windsor Court Hotel and William B Friends Photography by Kellie Binnings

Mommy And Me Style: The Perfect Dresses For Spring And Summer
March 5, 2017 at 4:46 am 0
This weekend we had no set plans and I honestly can't remember the last time that happened.  It has been really lovely to wake up and go at our own pace with no set agenda ahead. I have even been to the gym twice...who am I? So while my sweet little babe is napping, I am getting ahead of some long awaiting blogging. I wanted to share this Mommy and Me look that I shot with Willow some time ago. I have posted about it several times on my Instagram, and it is finally making it's debut. With warmer days ahead these breezy dresses are the perfect fit for spring and summer.

How To Create Beachy Waves With A Straightener
February 28, 2017 at 2:56 am 0
As a Mother we don't always have the time to spend fussing over our hair. I mean I rock a top knot courtesy of a little dry shampoo way more often than I should! I am always on the look out for new and versatile tools that can simplify the process of getting ready since I usually have a 3 year old hanging off me for most of the day. Now before Willow, I used to use a curling wand and a straightener to achieve a wavy look and these days...ain't nobody got time for that! I recently found a styling iron that can straighten, curl, and create waves. Who doesn't love a hair tool that serves dual purposes and looks as sleek as the T3 SinglePass LUXE? I must admit I was a little intimidated by using just a flat iron to create waves, but the T3 has flexible beveled plates and a contoured body to glide smoothly through hair. See my steps below on how to create carefree waves using the T3 Singlepass LUXE.

1. Allow your T3 SinglePass LUXE a minute to heat up.

2. Take a one-inch section of your hair and bring the straightener up to your roots at a 45 degree angle.

3. Wrap the section around the front of the straightener, when you get to the back pull hair through the plates and clip them together.

4. Slide straightener smoothly down hair and release to reveal the perfect wave.

5. Run your fingers through your hair to separate the waves. Set it with your favorite hair spray or texturizing spray ( I love this one from Oribe).

6. Now pat yourself on the back for creating waves with a straightener and you should probably take a picture!

You can find the T3 SinglePass LUXE at T3, Nordstrom, Sephora, and ULTA
