Weekly Whistle: Foxy Lady

IMG_7544

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog! 

Oh, Wednesdays are so great–I honestly love sharing the outfit of the week with y’all! So–let’s get to it *wink*

What I love about this week’s ensemble: 

1. It’s super comfy with several layers–layering is a huge key to surviving the hot-cold-hot-cold weather this time of year.

2. The mix of patterns and textures adds a lot of pizzazz to what could have easily been a boring outfit. 

3. Cynthia Rowley’s fox tank always leaves me playing air guitar to Jimi Hendrix’s Foxy Lady *wink*

Beauty Tues: What’s All the Up-Do About?

img_7508

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to Beauty Tues.

Lately, my life has been a non-stop race, and sleeping an extra twenty minutes in the morning is more important than following my normal hair routine. So, I had no choice but to create a “wardrobe” for my hair. A wardrobe for your hair…say what?!  It’s pretty simple–just as I have lots of different styles of clothes in my closet, I created several different styles of quick-to-do up-‘dos ! *In my Jim Gaffigan voice: Whoa–that’s a lot of dashes.*

Now, let’s take a closer look at some of my most recent messy-do’s + don’t forget to check out my snazzy pin-board for some other on-the-go hair-spiration!

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Recently, I stumbled upon the company Modani Modern Furniture, a high-quality furniture store specializing in contemporary and modern design, and decided that it would be super fabulous to take my wardrobe to the great room *wink* Hmmmm. Oh, how this blog very much reminds me of when I interviewed Mark Brunetz of Clean House–mixing my personal style with my living space is always fun! 

Before I reveal my inspiration board + living room pieces I chose, I have to tell y’all that choosing only a few Modani Modern Furniture pieces to feature was so HARD! Ah! They have so many fabulous things! After you finish reading this blog, be sure to head on over to their website to fall head-over-heels for all of their marvelous furniture pieces like I did :)

P.S. Did you know that Modani has been featured on Keeping Up With the Kardashians?! How super fabulous is that!! Check out the video below:

Now, without further delay, let’s take a look at my inspiration board + favorite Modani Modern Furniture pieces

Fabulous Finds Friday: My Fav Fall Bootie for 2014!

IMG_7125

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Phew! What a long week it has been…My, my, I am so glad that it is Friday because that means the weekend is finally here, and I finally get to share the baddest, coolest, fall-est bootie with y’all! *wink*

While shopping in Birmingham last weekend, I went into DSW on a mission to find fall shoes because wearing open-toe wedges in twenty-degree weather does not sound very appealing *wink* So, I told myself to focus. *deep breath* After lots of gorgeous distractions and trying on lots of booties, I found the perfect pair! Ah–I was so excited that I could have danced a jig in the middle of the store! Not only are these Kork-Ease booties fantastically comfy, they are also neutrally classic for fall. I can go from coffee meeting to girls’ night out in a snap in these cutie pies. Oh, I cannot envision myself ever throwing them out :) Thanks, Kork-Ease, for always being the VIP’s favorite go-to comfort (and cute!) shoe :)

I am head over heels for these!
