Liquid & Lace

It's been a full round of get-together's, parties and time with friends and family. And I'm still on my whole "DO NOT BUY ANYTHING UNTIL AFTER CHRISTMAS!" rule. Yeah, that's working um..so-so. Using items I already have in my closet and mixing and matching is like giving my clothes a second chance and a gift at a new look and life, right? Isn't that the Christmas spirit or I have not eaten enough due to the flu running through my family and I'm just talking crazy? I love the idea of liquid leggings and lace this time of year. The look can work for many occasions and these leggings from Zappos are fleece-lined! Perfect for this time of year. Together and with different shoes and accessories you can wear it over and over again all the way to New Year's Eve.   Liquid … [Read more...]

Do Work

AsicsStretch

I don't even know where to begin.  But sometime between losing the house, Halloween and now I fell off the workout/eat healthy wagon. HARD. I became complacent.  I would throw on my workout clothes and then, "meh..." shower.  Part of me wanted to remove fitness from my site and just continue to rifle through old trick or treat bags and yell with a full mouth, "Bring on the pie and Thanksgiving treats!  Where's all my holiday baking?!" Thankfully, I had some motivation come my way in the last two weeks. … [Read more...]

Paleo Cleanse- 30 Day Detox

ApricotAPowerBars

  The holiday season is probably the worst time to take on the challenge of going paleo.  I fully admit, it adds an extra layer of difficulty.  January 1st or let's just face it, the 2nd is more realistic.  Am I right? Except that when I got the book Paleo Cleanse by Camilla Carboni and Melissa Van Dover it was after stuffing my face full of Halloween candy and with the thought of Thanksgiving coming up I just knew I needed to refine my eating habits to get back on track.  This seemed ideal. … [Read more...]

Decked: Black & White

120314full

We went out and got our tree this weekend.  The weather was so warm we had all the windows open while we blasted Christmas music and decorated the tree and house.  I loved it.  I could do without the frigid temps and blasting wind and rain that have come in that unseasonable wake. No matter.  It's that time of year when we can get a bit crazed. I know I felt a massive sense of anxiety on Monday.  My brain panicked with the whole idea, "DECEMBER IS HERE!!! Get all the Christmas stuff done TODAY!"  Crazy, isn't it?  I mean why?  I should just kick back and enjoy the season.  Simplify it beyond the fact that I kicked Christmas cards out the window because the idea just makes me cranky and super stressed. No professional photos done this year, no stunning vacation pics taken. Zip. Zilch. … [Read more...]

CYBER MONDAY DEALS ON TMC! … [Read more...]

Thanksgiving Threads

A lot of us travel during Thanksgiving, that's no joke.   I still flinch when I think of some the grand times I spent in many of the East Coasts finest airports back in college.  Even back then I liked to dress for travel while still knowing that comfort was key.  Whether it is by train, plane or automobile these two looks are guaranteed to keep you looking your most polished and comfortable too. I'm wearing both this week while we spend time with friends and family.   Travel Outfit by victoriamason featuring a stud earring set Forever21 Striped Knit Sweater (similar)/Black boots (similar)(similar)/Jeans/Kate Spade Pearl Studs/Essie Nail Polish (similar)   Travel Outfit by victoriamason featuring a travel outfit JCrew Chambray Shirt/Black Skinny Jeans … [Read more...]
