The CurvyCon

Last week I spent the most amazing five days in New York during fashion week for an event called Curvycon.  To say that I was excited was an understatement.  Not only had I not been to NY in almost six years, this was my first Curvycon and it was also going to be my first…

Spring with Shein

This past month I was fortunate enough to receive two beautiful dresses from an online store called Shein.  To be honest, I had never heard of them before so before I accepted their offer I did a little research and it turns out it's this great, affordable online store for both straight and curvy sized…

Do You Want to Build a Snowman?

Back in October, my best friends and I were trying to come up with a fun family trip that we could all do together and we decided on a ski trip.  Our first thought was to head up to Colorado.  However, we decided against it when we took into account that the kids probably wouldn't…

The February Shopping Guides

I admit it, I have always been a huge fan of Valentine's Day.  I can honestly say that I've never had a terrible Valentine's Day.  Not because it has always been a romantically great day for me (trust me when I say I've hated many ex's on that day), but because I've always been able…

Winter Is Here

Christmas and New Years have come and gone- and so has my attempt to have a dry January.  We've had some amazingly cold days here in Tampa, so I've taken advantage of it by lighting our first fire in our fireplace (🔥=🍷), and we did not burn the house down nor die of carbon monoxide…

Closet Full of Stars

Most people think that my favorite color is pink.  Those people would be wrong.  It's Black.  However, give me a star print on ANYTHING and all bets are off.  Stars on shirts, sweaters, earrings, sunnies, shoes, purses...I love it and I'll take it all!  There's something about it that can make any outfit more youthful,…

Thanksgiving Prep

Thanksgiving seriously snuck up on me this year!  If a friend of mine hadn't told me that we couldn't do a group trip to Disney next Thursday because it was Thanksgiving, I would have missed my turkey ordering window.  I seriously thought I had three more weeks!  Did I mention that I'm hosting?  I immediately…

Cocktails and Playdates

I'm a big believer in "happy wife/mommy, happy life".  To me that means having some sort of balance in my life between being the best mom I can be, spending quality time with my husband, spending time with my family and having somewhat of a social life.  I know there are plenty of moms out…

Women, Wine and Shoes

Last week I went to Women, Wine and Shoes, a charity event that benefits Children's Cancer Center, with my friend Ashley, her mom and a few of her girlfriends.  The event was a perfect ladies night out! There were lots of bubbles, wine, shopping and bidding.  How could you not bid or make a purchase…

Fun In October

I seriously can't believe that we're done with October!  Time really does fly by when you're having fun.  October started off with a super fun night at the Straz when my husband, a couple of friends of mine and I all went to go see Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper live. It was much better…
