The Kate Hudson for Ann Taylor collection is here lovelies, and let me just say – it is a beautiful, beautiful “white out”. Ann Taylor stores across the country had special “White Party” events, celebrating the launch of the collection. I was lucky enough to attend just such an event at my local store here in Tulsa.

(I planned on posting this on Monday, but due to the horrible tragedy and devastation left in the wake of the tornado in Moore, OK, it didn’t seem appropriate or the right time to take any attention away from this tragic time.)
It was a “blue carpet” as apposed to the regular “red carpet” at this year’s Billboard Music Awards. As with any awards show, one of my favorite parts of course is the fashion! The above are my top three best dressed favorites! Kelly Rowland and J-Lo shimmered and brought some mega-watt glam, while Selena Gomez was chic in a modern all white dress with a sexy slit and just a touch of neon color.
Among the great moments the BBMA blue carpet brought, there were certain moments that were…um…not so great. Like this from Jennifer Morrison, THIS from Kesha (not that I’m surprised), and….um…THIS from Maddona??!! Hey, we’ve got to deal with the crazy and the bad to get to the good, right?

Whether you’re going to be out and about livin’ it up this weekend or just keeping it low key, I wish you a fabulous time! I myself don’t have any crazy fabulous plans to ring in this year’s Cinco de Mayo…guess I’ll have to “live vicariously” through the tweets and instagrams of others! I still might sneak in a margarita or two before the weekend is up though!

Decided to change things up a bit with this outfit post! Presenting me in “live action“! Haha! Just yet another example of me going to my “happy place” fashion-wise in some more great bright color. Coral is a very coveted color so far this spring season in both fashion and makeup. Fine with me! Coral is a color I’ve always loved and will definitely continue to love throughout this spring and coming summer season!
What bright colors have you been loving so far?
I know we all seem to say this at the end of every month and every year, but good grief has this past month gone by fast1 Tomorrow is already May?! Wow! The past few months have been a bit rough for me, so I haven’t been able to and haven’t had as much time to indulge in as many “monthly favorites” as usual, but I do have a few things I’d like to share with you!
Beauty, fashion, food, music or otherwise, what have you been loving lately?
Life has not been easy for me lately. However, despite my tough times, I decided maybe wearing a bright, sunny and overall happy color was what I needed. Amazing how, even if only for a short time, just wearing a great bright color can improve your mood. This sunny yellow top from Ann Taylor is one of my favorite pieces in my closet. It’ s fun to wear and so easy to style; a piece that can effortlessly be dressed up or dressed down.
What are some of your favorite colors to wear to improve your mood?
Hello lovelies – I’m still alive! I’ve been unexpectedly taking a few “blog vacations” lately. Let me just say – things have been a bit rough lately for me. However, when the going gets tough I find that a little fun and laughter usually do the trick (laughter is the best medicine). So, when I saw a popular tag on You Tube going around “##Things You May Not Know About Me”, and after seeing Kristina’s video, I thought this would be just thing to get my spirits up! Hey, if you can’t laugh at yourself you’re taking life too seriously, right? Right.
Just a little something I’ve been trying to tell myself more and more lately. Confession time – when I get really stressed out sometimes I start to get really flustered or as some would say, “wig out” a bit, which in turn completely ruins my mood and puts me in a bad mood. I keep asking myself – “Why do you do this to yourself? Let it go girl – it’ll be OK!”
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been really hard on myself. If I didn’t accomplish perfectly what I set out to do or couldn’t figure something out quickly, I started beating myself up about it and started feeling really down on myself. I’d start to compare myself to others and try to figure out why I couldn’t do something as well or wasn’t as good as everyone else seemed to be. It’s a continual daily struggle, but slowly but surely I’m starting to make progress on overcoming this particular personal flaw.
Have you ever come across a situation like this before? How do you overcome it?
