Bun Fun...


I literally rock a bun on a daily basis.  My hair always starts the day down and slowly goes to a low messy bun to being perched on the tip top of my head!

I adore the bun look...it takes me back to my days of dance and it's so versatile. 
It can be a messy bun paired with a super chill look of a tee, denims, and your favorite kicks OR dress it up with a precise bun and LBD with your fave pair of pumps!

Some of you I'm sure have seen the "doughnut" floating aruond the blog world!  It's absoulte perfection for creating a bun!


Pick yours up here!

For The Love Of Cooking: Papaya Avocado Salad


I have been (if I do say so myself) kicking booty on my new healthy lifestyle, clean eating plan!
I am down 8lbs and have 8 more to go to reach goal by end of April!

The only probably I tend to run into is boring food choices!
I am just about over, tilapia, tuna, and chicken...and almonds and sweet potatoes, don't even get me started!  I am on a serious mission to add a few new items to the daily routine and mix things up a bit!  This salad I completely think will do the trick!  I even think adding this mixture to the top of fish or chicken would be a major and delish plus!

Preggo Chic...

I have this crazy weird obsession with maternity clothes and preggo style!
I'm not sure if it's sheer fear that baby equals no more skinnies and pumps or that the styles are limited or maybe in reality I'm just dreaming of the day I actually have to stress the idea of  preggo chic style?? 
I love that all my girlfriends have had not only their first but some are actually expecting baby number two (3 of my closest girlfriends are due this summer).  I am constantly asking about their pants and tips and tricks for making the look stylish yet comfy.
I am absolutely no where even close to having to up the maternity clothing section in my closet but, when the day comes...I am sure to be prepared!

Etsy Shop Of The Day


Bracelet Mix is the shop that caught my eye today!
Y'all know I'm a summertime girl and all things nautical get me super pumped for beach days!
My style tends to go surfer girl crazy every time summer rolls around and this year is no different!
It's time to start the process of removing my David Yurman and fun flirty extra chunky bracelets for a few nautical pieces!

Happy Spring Loves!!

I am totally stoked to plant my first vegetable garden this year.  I played it smart in years past and planted perennial flowers so this year I can concentrate more on the garden portion. 
In the past few days I have already spyed my first Easter lily popping up, my daisy's are making a comeback and I'm beyond excited to see that my iris' are breaking through for the first time!

This week, my eyes are on quaint little gardens...
