Discounted Amazon Prime membership!

Saturday, January 16th, 2016

Who doesn’t love their Amazon Prime membership? I’ve purchased everything from sneakers to cat litter, at all hours and in all stages of undress. When you absolutely need a case of gummy bears and you need it NOW. While I am spoiled at the same day and next day options that come along with Prime […]

Which DNA test is best?

Monday, June 29th, 2015

Many of us hear from our parents and grandparents we’re maybe part German or 1/8 Native American with a little Irish or North African, but how can we be sure? Now you can, and it costs under $100! With the recent dramatic price decreases of autosomal DNA testing, these can be a fantastic out-of-the box […]

I tried it- Clear and Brilliant laser resurfacing

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

Although I’ve been lucky to skate through 30 with just minimal signs of my age, I am noticing things beginning to creep up. A lifetime of oily skin has left me with noticeable pores, marks from old breakouts and uneven pigmentation. Thankfully, significant wrinkles aren’t something that have plagued me quite yet, so I haven’t […]

Monday, May 21st, 2012

Summer 2012 is upon us! I found myself looking for some key pieces to update my wardrobe to stay cute and ahead of the fashion curve (or at least not behind it!) Overall, the feel for 2012 is romantic, feminine, flouncy, airy and full of movement. Think uber girly, pastel, floral and lace. Also keep […]

Gift idea: The Modern Mix tape

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

To me, the idea of a mixtape conjures up memories of high school, handwritten notes and bad cafeteria food. While mixtapes kind of lost their swagger when iPods became the norm, it’s no less meaningful to hand-craft a playlist full of songs that remind you of the recipient. It’s a thoughtful and personal gift, and […]

Etsy Roundup- Chandeliers

Thursday, July 28th, 2011

Maybe it’s because as a little girl I was convinced that the big, glistening crystal chandelier over my grandmother’s dining room table was made of diamonds. Maybe it’s because I live in Arizona and we all have to have ceiling fans. Whatever the reason, I’ve become obsessed with gorgeous, ornate hanging light fixtures. I’ve especially […]

Fashion- Review

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

You may have heard of ShoeDazzle– a service that after a brief questionare, a team of personal stylists selects shoes that- based on your style profile- you’re sure to love. All for a tempting and affordable price of only $39.99. I’m a lover of bargains in the name of fashion, so I signed up, answered […]

Fashion: Karl Lagerfeld designs for Diet Coke

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

While a diet consisting of steamed veggies and Diet Coke might not be the healthiest option, fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld claims it helped him lose 90 pounds 10 years ago. His love of Diet Coke has him lending his design skills to a set of 3 limited edition bottles. Well… that, and employing a Diet […]

Etsy find: Custom stationery roundup

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

One of my new year’s resolutions was to start writing (and actually SENDING) handwritten notes. Thank you, get well, thinking of you and no reason at all- just remembering that in a world of emails and texts, a note in the mailbox can be such a delight. With making such a decision, finding some fancy […]
