How I Plan and Stay Organized

Out of all the adjectives people could use to describe me, I’d venture to say “spontaneous” is not one of them. I am a super goal-oriented-list-dependent-plan-aheader. There’s a part of me that wishes I could just do things on a whim, or procrastinate from time to time, but I’ve learned that thorough planning and working ahead makes me feel less anxious and better prepared. Bottom line: I function better when I’m overly organized and know what to expect. In order to stay organized and properly…

Anything Goes: Dinner and a Show

Friday night I got dressed up, and had places to go! As much as I love lazy Friday nights that consist of lying around in a pair of my boyfriend’s sweat pants, hair tossed up in the messiest of buns, aimlessly trying not to miss my mouth with a handful of cheesy popcorn, I do occasionally like to go out. Okay, okay, let’s be real… I absolutely adore having a reason to get dressed up. Reason for getting dressed up this past Friday? Dinner and a musical. A local theater was performing Anything Goes ,which…

Custom Navy Dress with eShakti

I’ll be the first to admit that while I love fashion and shopping for new wardrobe pieces, I find the whole process very, very frustrating at times. All too often I find a piece that I love on the hanger, but when I put it on my body…it’s just not quite right.

I know today isn’t my birthday, but I just love birthdays in general. I love celebrating my friends and loved ones. I love watching…

Palm Printed Pants

To the Banana Republic Factory employee that was working the dressing rooms, and suggested I try on these pants, which I would have never picked out for myself, thank you. Not only did they end up surprisingly comfortable and flattering, they were on sale with an additional 60% off, so they were pretty much a steal. Seriously, though. Don’t you love it when you stumble upon a super fun piece for dirt cheap!? I was a little hesitant to purchase these, would I actually wear them?, but the price point helped to push me over the edge. I…
