Local Talent-Yellow House Designs

When planning my Local Talent series, Tiffany Bauer and her business Yellow House Designs was an obvious choice.  Tiffany is one talented and driven lady. She is in the process of starting a Yellow House Designs etsy page, but in the mean time you can find her and many of her creations on her Facebook page.  

What a great keepsake baby gift.

Be sure to like her facebook page...she's always updating with her newest designs and does lots of giveaways!

Boho Chic

I'm super excited to team up with Brittany from the Etsy shop AliceInBloom to offer my readers 15% off any purchase.
  Not only was I so excited to have my name in a coupon code, but this also meant some glam time with my girl, Cass!  You know it's going to be a good glam session when she tries a new makeup technique that she learned while watching a makeup tutorial for drag have to admit, most drag queen's makeup is pretty flawless!
These headbands are great because you can wear them boho chic style or on top of your head like a typical headband.  They also work great with short or long hair.  Not to mention the endless ways you can style your hair while wearing them.

40 Days & 40 Spaces

As you spend this Lenten season giving up your everyday vices- soft drinks, fast food or Facebook- why not give up the clutter, unnecessary items and junk around your house, too?!?  Those of you giving up Facebook are going to have a lot of extra time on your hands…

Join me as I spend the next 40 days organizing and purging 40 spaces around my house.  Start tonight by making a list of 40 spaces around your home to be de-cluttered.

My spaces range from our spice cabinet to Brandon’s hunting clothes closet.   
Be sure to check back in as I give my 40 Days & 40 Spaces updates!

Fruit Cookie Cups

Such an easy and yummy treat!  You best be making them soon!

Here's what you'll need:
1 package store bought sugar cookie dough 
fruit of your choice
1 cup sugar
1 8 oz cream cheese
1 tub whipped cream

Prepare cookies in a mini cupcake tin.  (Shape them in a cup form so they bake like little bowls.)  Let cool after baking.  Prepare filling by beating cream cheese, cool whip and sugar.  Fill cooled cookie bowls with filling.  Top with fruit of your choice.  Enjoy!!

Spring are you out there??? Part 2

 Pants, Dresses, Skirts- you name it, I'm searching for it!

Spring, are you out there??? Part 1

We had a few days of springness, then mother nature did a switcharoo on us and we're right back where we started-WINTER!!  I've had about enough of this snow and ice.  Seriously, it's March!  Ugh, I'm ready for spring and for some spring shopping.  Here's part 1 my shopping list for Spring 2014:

I've seen on several Spring 2014 lists that Gladiator's will be in full swing.  I can't see myself in the full-fledged gladiators-
(more power to ya if you can pull them off...just not me)

But, the shorter, ankle version gladiators might find themselves in my closet.

Will you be shopping for gladiators this season?  Full or short style?

Black and Brown: 
I got my pinspiration from this:
and of course from my dog, Coco...he's a natural at black and brown styling!

Look #2- Collars and Pencil Skirts, came from:

Can we get some warm weather so we can be pinspired with some spring fashion?!?
