Glam Round-Up #8

PLAID heels














It’s Friday ya’ll! Friday. If you woke up this morning having nothing else to look forward to today, well, there’s that (great cheery opening line Steph) How was your week? I can pleasantly say I had a great week; a productive week – always a good thing. One thing I definitely realized this week is how excited I am for fall! Although the temperatures aren’t very “fall-ish” right now, I am ready for all the season has to bring. With “pumpkin spice EVERYTHING” ( #PSL anyone? ) leaves slowly starting to change and an abundance of fall festivals happening every weekend, fall is here!

A few things that caught my eye on the web this week……



{ Review } Kate Spade 2015 Planner!

kate spade planner review thumbnail










So, I have a bit of a confession to make. i may…..may… becoming a #planneraddict . I for one have always been one to keep things digital – evernote, google calendar and various other organization apps via my phone. I can’t even remeber the last time I used an actual “paper” calendar/planner until recently, when i discovered the Kate Spade 2015 Planner. Never say never people. This could be only the begining for me. We shall see……..



The Secret Diary of a YouTuber!

Secret Diary of....


Did you ever keep a diary when you were a teenager or a little girl? You know what I’m talking about. It probably was pink and girly,  had a lock on it and only you had the “secret key” to open it. You’d vent about your parents, gush over boys, talk smack about that “mean girl” at your school. It was the inner most workings of your young and crazy teenage mind.

Yep – I plead guilty. My best friend and I in high school actually shared one – yes – we shared one. We though we were so cool. We’d take turns taking it with us to our classes throughout the day and would right all kinds of crazy stuff in it. Oh memories…..


{Style} Put A Ring On It | Midi Rings

I friends am an accessories girl. To me an outfit never seems to be complete without an accessory or two. The simplest of outfits can instantly be dressed up with a great statement piece of jewelry. For a while now (and hey….it still is) it was statement necklaces; the bigger the better. Now my eye has been swayed by another – midi rings! First, it was the over sized ring, usually worn on your index finger. Now we all seem can’t seem to get enough of midi rings; they are everywhere! Here are a few that I’ve been eyeing.

{Style} Life Is Short….Wear Sequins!



So, I noticed there seems to be a “theme” of sorts going on around here on the blog….when it comes to my “off duty” (not “model off duty”….HAHA! “Not at Work” attire) dressing. Graphic tees, ripped boyfriend jeans and heels. Hey…there could be worse “patterns” I could be stuck in, right?



Wednesday Wisdom: The Value of Hard Work

Words that ring very true to me right now. Sometimes I think the value of hard work and good work ethic are undervalued. In my opinion true work ethic and hard work are two of the most important and best values you can have today. No one should expect things to just happen and then complain when they don’t happen. Not happy with your current situation? Well then do something about it! Hustle! I’ll be honest, I did have to learn the hard way and learn a few “life lessons” so to speak before I realized how true the above is. I’ll never take it for granted again!

{Style} The Comeback Kid

Glam Up that Red White and Blue 016


No, your eyes are not deceiving you. You are seeing an outfit post here on the blog! It’s been a while since my last one, a little over two months to be exact.  Keeping it casual for my “comeback outfit post” and wearing my favorite pair of sunglasses, which may or may not be covering up some major dark circles. Nothing like the upcoming 4th of July holiday to stir up some outfit inspiration, eh?
