Getting Cozy for Fall


When Marcus and I first got married, we lived in Florida. It was a huge shock for this New England girl when the fall and winter came around. I don’t love the cold, but I do love a change of season, and Florida just wasn’t the same. I am not hating on the south, I am just a New England girl through and through!

Now that the temperatures are dropping to a seasonal norm, I can break out the scarves, jackets, and boots. There is nothing like getting cozy in my layers with a warm cup of coffee, the smell of the fallen leaves, and a slight chill in the air. I just love you, New England!

Where do you live? Do you get awesome Fall weather? Or are you team one-season…  Share below!

Getting Ready for Date Night Featuring Lipsense



Date night is highly coveted in our house. While official dates aren’t consistent, they are an eagerly anticipated break from the chaos that is three children. So you can imagine that when this special night comes around, I want to look my best! I mean we are to the point where my husband compliments me every time I wear makeup, which isn’t a lot #momlife #sorryhunny.  I am not one for lipgloss or lipstick (I drink and eat too much which smudges or fades it). I am no makeup guru, but I recently discovered how much I could elevate my look by adding a little lip color. But what does one do when lipstick just isn’t a good fit?

Enter Lipsense by SeneGence. I was sent a sample by my friend Tori and while I was hesitant (lips aren’t my thing!), I was interested to try it out.  Lipsense’s claim to fame is that the color lasts 18 hours and won’t smudge, budge, or kiss off. Let me tell you- with no exaggeration, this stuff LASTS and the claims are true! From getting ready, to kissing the kids on our way out, to a glass of wine and through dinner, I was so impressed! The color stayed on my lips and looked great. My husband couldn’t stop complimenting me! The color was very flattering and I felt great!

If Lipsense is something you’ve been on the fence about trying or even are just hearing about it for the first time, contact Tori! She is so sweet and fun and can help match you to your perfect color. Lipsense comes in 36 different colors and 10 glosses. And you can mix and match colors to make your own custom creation! So cool, right?!  (I am wearing “Luv it”)

Outfit Obsession // Pleated Skirt

Do you ever have an item of clothing that you’ve been wanting forever, but you weren’t able to find “the one?” Well, that is the story with this pleated skirt. I feel like I have been looking for one for the longest time and finally, finallyyyy I found it. AND it happens to be part of the #nsale. Nordstrom, how I love you so. (There are some sizes still available, scroll to the bottom for direct links!) It feels like kittens are caressing my legs and angels sing when I wear it. Too much? Maybe a slight exaggeration. Only slight. ANYWAY, this skirt is perfect, so flattering and very versatile, and I am so glad I got it!

Outfit Obsession Featuring jBloom


As you may know, I am a huge fan of clothes/accessories that work hard for my money. If I can find a way to stretch an item to span the course of a few seasons, that is a huge win in my book! Same with accessories. There are some that are very summery or exclusively winter, depending on the style and bling factor. If you haven’t heard of it, I would like to introduce you to jBloom and few pieces that I know will stand the test of the season! 

*Read all the way to the bottom for a link to a party and for discounts!*

The fun thing about chokers is there are so many different ways to wear them! Tie in a bow like shown above, or leave hanging for a simple look.


I was so thrilled to see the customized bangle Julie at jBloom had designed for me. That is the best part about working with someone when ordering your jewelry- you get their personal touch and insight! I’ve worn this one more times than I can count, and it makes me smile every time I see my wrist. And wouldn’t this look perfect with your jewelry stack?


I wore these earrings to church on Sunday and am obsessed. I have really small earlobes so I can’t handle a lot of weight. These were wonderful! So lightweight and just plain gorgeous.

I looove this choker! While I am new to the choker trend, this one was simple enough for me to dip my toe in the water. And now I am all about it!

This necklace. Guys. Not only is this a perfect layering necklace, Julie added the coordinates of where my husband and I met. (Bonus points if you can figure out where it was!). It is the sweetest gesture that I will be sure to wear all the time!

I also really love this necklace! The turquoise color is so spot on and looks great with a tan, but look great popping against your winter whites.
