I Wore Ugg Boots (And I Liked It)

Written on October 30, 2013 at 2:21 pm, by

There comes a time in every person’s life when they have to step outside their comfort zone and try something new.

I don’t know how or why it happened, but UGG Australia sent me a really lovely email asking me if I wanted to bring my girls to their new Fashion Valley store (7007 Friars Rd, all you San Diego peeps) for a little shopping spree.… Read More

Fall Fashion for Cheap People (Like Me!)

Written on September 6, 2013 at 9:30 am, by

I recently took this amazing 2-day Photoshop for Bloggers class.

And now I kind of know how to make stuff!

Crafts excluded.

I made a fall fashion graphic and ran it on the Mint blog (check it out for a larger/better view of the graphic).

So far The People of the Internet haven’t ripped it to shreds, so I thought I’d share it with you guys, too.… Read More

One of the things about the new house that is taking me the longest to get used to is the size of the closets.

Let’s just say I moved from a home that was built when people were finally starting to appreciate features like storage and shelving to a home that was built just after the Great Depression and owning three pairs of shoes was considered a luxury.… Read More

What to Wear for a Television Appearance (Pants Not Included)

Written on November 28, 2012 at 5:30 am, by

Psssst. I was on TV last week. We’ll get to the pants part later.

I know I didn’t tell you guys, but y’all know I had to preview the segment before it was broadcast it to the world. I mean, for the second time. You know, ’cause it already got broadcast to the world the first time without my pre-approval.… Read More

Simple Style

Written on November 5, 2012 at 5:30 am, by

I haven’t really shared much about my happy place. Yes, I like to share pictures and a funny story or two, but not that many people have a lot of insight into what exactly I do when I’m up there.

I wish I had something really wild and exciting to tell you, but the truth is — there just isn’t much to say.… Read More

Lazy Style

Written on October 26, 2012 at 4:30 am, by

It’s been a while since I did a fashion post. Fall hasn’t really gotten here and, in fact, it’s been in the 80s for the past six weeks. Plus, taking pictures, editing them, and then making collages is more time consuming than one might think — it takes FOREVER.

So, I’m doing a lazy post today using my Instagram pics.… Read More

Just Say No to Uggs: 10 Alternatives to America’s Ugg-liest Footwear

Written on September 4, 2012 at 5:30 am, by

Just say NO!

Are you addicted to Uggs? It’s ok. I used to be, too.

Now that Labor Day is behind us and fall weather is just around the corner, I thought this would be the perfect time to hold an Uggs intervention.

As a former Uggs addict, I know all too well how enticing the world of Uggs can be.… Read More

Island Style: Matchy Matchy

Written on August 7, 2012 at 5:30 am, by

Last week I wrote about some of my most recent thrift store finds.

Little did I know, but these rainbow sandals I just picked up match one of my sundresses to perfection. I don’t usually go for the whole matchy matchy thing, but I can’t help but get a kick out of how well it all turned out.… Read More

Island Style: Thrift Store Finds

Written on July 31, 2012 at 5:30 am, by

It’s no secret that I have a bit of an addiction to thrifting. I just can’t get enough of the thrill of the hunt. One of my favorite things to do when I travel is to hit up the local thrift stores of whatever town I happen to be visiting or passing through.… Read More
