All Twisted

I think the biggest key to living in a place with four seasons is…layering! I love this dress, a bargain from the Target sale rack, because it doesn’t static cling to tights. (Something that really annoys me!!)
My real highlight to share though, is the totally random hair I rocked today. It honestly just happened. I couldn’t tell if I liked it, or thought it looked ridiculous, so I just went with it! I had a couple co-workers validate for me that it was cool…so I kept it going all day (had I gotten some other responses I would have gone to my back-up ponytail!).

Different angles. It literally started with a little twist that just found its own way! All secured with hair wrapped around the pony part secures with a bobby pin!


Any beauty tips or finds that you’ve discovered by mistake!?

PS-Hey May, where did you go?!!


Get Your Shine On!

Hellllllllo long weekend! I’m happy to kick you off with a brand new article published in my local newspaper, The Gazette. This time around highlighting the Metallic trend this Spring and the flapper-inspired dresses (courtesy of The Great Gatsby movie!).

I had to add some of the additional photos taken on what was a beautiful night at the Orchard Place. Simply Gorgeous!!

I hope you have an awesome holiday weekend. Whether you are traveling or staying put, live it up!! Me you ask?! I’m heading to the wonderful Lake Okoboji area for the next three days. You’ll find me eating, napping, sunning and enjoying some husband time. Life.Is.Good!!

One Year Workiversary!

Man, time sure does fly when you are having fun! Today marks my one year anniversary at my Project Manager position. I have moments where I feel like this has been my home forever, but I learn so many new things every day, it’s as though I started yesterday!

It seemed like the perfect day to break out my printed pants for this season. Oh la la!

And just for fun, let’s see what I looked like a year ago today:
