Pedestal Table Makeover

I picked up this table from a resale shop when we moved into our current home a year and a half ago. The robin egg blue needed to go, plus the table top was stained and discolored. I had all intentions of refinishing it right away but it never happened. Finally, over the summer I got motivated and got it done! 


Suede Dress - Workwear to Weekend

In the late 80's, long before online shopping, I loved catalog shopping. I remember the excitement when a new catalog came in the mail from retailers like Chadwicks of Boston. It was fun flipping through and shopping the catalog. They offered everything I needed at the time starting off in my career - quality pieces in classic styles at amazing prices.

I was recently re-introduced to Chadwicks of Boston and was happy to hear that they are still bringing you affordable clothing from workwear to trends to try. They offer timeless and versatile looks in sizes ranging from misses to petite, as well as tall and plus size all pictured together.

Glossybox Review - September 2016

Have you heard of Glossybox? It's a beauty subscription service similar to Ipsy and Sephora Play that gives you five luxury sized samples of makeup, hair and skincare products from niche, high-end and emerging brands. The cost is $21/month and the curated products come in an unique, reusable keepsake box. They also have 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions making the cost even less. Glossybox sent me the September box to try. Let's see what was inside!

Fall 2016 Home Tour

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? I finally got to meet Carrie in person on Saturday! She was in town for the Chicago marathon and we had a fun afternoon at brunch and then shopping! Carrie is so sweet and it was just like we've know each other for ages! 

My post today is long overdue! I love everything about fall from the fashion to the beautiful colors we see outdoors to everything pumpkin! I brought out my fall decor over Labor Day weekend and haven't had an opportunity to take photos until now. 

I usually incorporate Halloween decor during the month of October, but this year, with so much going on, I decided to kept it to a fall scheme. So without further ado, here we go! Starting with the front porch...

Breast Cancer Awareness Month | I Am 1 in 8

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. It's a time to celebrate survivors and join the fight against breast cancer. While I normally don't get too personal in this space, today I'm going to get real. I felt it was important to share my story with you to help raise awareness.
