Sole Society...My kind of place!

***Use the code 31MARCH15 and order by the end of (today) March 31st to get $15 OFF!!!***

We've all heard about Kim K's online shoe store and a few others much similar, but have you checked out Sole Society yet? In my opinion this is sooooo much better because it's totally FREE to be a member. That is the main reason that I never joined any of the shoe clubs, because I didn't want to pay for the shoes every month and worry about hitting cancel if I didn't want a pair. Too much hassle!

With Sole Society you can pick any shoe, all priced at $49.95 and they send you coupons for $10 off sometimes as well. You can browse through all the shoes offered OR you can have the SS stylists pick the shoes based on your style (you have to answer a few questions). And can I just say damn they do a great job and have extremely fashionable choices? 

Become a member now by clicking HERE, browse around, and stock up on fabulous spring & summer shoes.

Gracelynn Rose Designs & GIVEAWAY

Today I'm very excited to introduce everyone to Gracelynn Rose Designs! The owner, Stephanie, is one of my closest and dearest friends that I consider more of a sister. The first time we met it was instant friendship, now we've known each other for 5 years. Even though we're currently thousands of miles apart it's as if we never left.

Stephanie has been designing her own jewelry since 2001 and selling it to customers along with a few stores. Each design is her own, delicately handcrafted, and unique. She did an entire jewelry line based on Twilight (which of course I loved every piece) that was so beautiful AND she sold a line of pearl & crystal bracelets to David's Bridal and those were stunning.

For my birthday Stephanie sent me a pair of earrings in the mail and I fell in love with them and wear them every chance I get. Might I add that they are 1 of a kind, not another pair like them...

It's obvious that my girl is super talented and I'm so proud of h…

I Always Was Good At Math

Geometry was easy for me in high school, probably had something to do with the fact that math was my favorite subject. So when the geo trend really came out with a bang I was naturally drawn to it. I haven't bought or worn any of the louder pieces but I'm definitely searching to see what I would like to add to my wardrobe. Although I do have to admit, the geo prints really remind me of something my parents probably wore in the 80's or a little Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Which isn't a bad thing if you know how to rock it. 

Altuzarra, Prabal Gurung, and Ohne Titel are just a few designers that had some beautiful geo designs on the S/S 2012 runways (not including color blocking). My favorite out of those three would have to be Prabal Gurung. Each garment was wonderfully and intricately constructed. I need some awesome black and white pants like that!

Here are a few items that I picked out, they are a bit on the louder side of the trend. Loud fits me I think, at least that&#…

40 Clove Garlic Chicken...

Let me start by saying that I LOVE to cook, bake, mix, whisk...anything that involves me in the kitchen with food and/or drink. I would bake something every day if I knew that I could go without wanting to devour whatever it may be. And new recipes? Oh yea baby, bring 'em on!

So onto today~   I guarantee that I will not be having any vampire encounters in the near future. Why? Because my hands, my house, my breath, my pores, my skin, and probably my blood stream have the odor of garlic. Lucky for us that garlic is very much welcome in my home. Lucky for others that we'll be staying inside this evening.

Have you ever been over to The Pioneer Woman? I wanted to be all professional and take pictures of my ingredients, the step by step process, make it look real good, ya' know like she does. Well I got carried away and couldn't wait to get this dish going or digging in when it was done, so there are limited photos today (please forgive).

Sporty Spice

The sporty chic trend has been around for a few years now, but it's just now really catching my attention and making me want to rock it. Maybe it's because of the neon colors that have been paired with this trend...or...maybe I just want to try something new. I'm sure you noticed some of the sporty looks at the S/S '12 Fashion Shows, a few of those designers were Victoria Beckham, Alexander Wang, and Rag & Bone.

Note to everyone...let's avoid looking like we should be on a high fashion playing field with the Packers or like we're going scuba diving in the pacific. Don't get me wrong, I like the whole scuba inspired idea but it needs to comes in small doses. Here are a couple outfits I put together (and need to buy)...

Put A Spring In Your Step

I have been drooling like Beethoven over the shoes this season. Pastels, neon, color blocked, sporty, strappy, structured...very surprised I'm not yet in a shoe coma! You would think with us living in Italy that I'd be swimming in all these glorious selections, but I'm not. This part of Italy has a different sense of style than say Milan. Therefore I pretty much order most of my things online (yea boring I know, I know). Now I have to decide WHAT to order as far as new spring/summer shoes. Do any of you watch The Real Housewives of where ever? Okay, I need a stylist that brings everything to my house (like Sheree's shoe guy) so I can see and feel what I like the best. 

I tried, really I did, to go through and pick my top 3-5 out of this bunch of shoes but it was pretty much impossible. I just couldn't do it in fear of hurting a shoe's feelings. Then what would happen? The world would be unaligned!!!
