Weekend Escape

There was a lot of fun on our weekend escape down at the Rivah. The whole family on got together to enjoy some much needed time in the sun and water. I loved being able to spend more time with my nephew and nieces and brother and sister-in-law.

Chic & Affordable Valentine’s Day Dresses

When it comes to Valentine's Day all my hard ass ways go out the window. I'm such a sucker for this overly commercialized un-real holiday. Back in high school I considered it my duty to spend the weekend before the big red heart day making Valentine's to deliver to my friends at school. I just loved bringing in some pink, purple, red and doily-filled cheer. Even if the rest of the time I was clad in black and "mourning" something real or not. Yup, that was me. I love dressing in reds, pops of pink and making Valentine's for my girls bedroom doors each year. Let's get excited, whether you are with someone or not because these seven dresses below deserve to be worn and shown off! No matter what! And they are all under $50 so they won't sabotage your budget. … [Read more...]
