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)...
Sporty Trend





1. Team Color- I still haven't braved the sweatpants in public thing, but this look is making me reconsider. I mean this has to be one of the most comfortable cottony polished looks. The bright yellow tank that is played up by the neon bow on the shoe, and I put a structured pink bag for some more color along with sophistication.

2. Monochromatic Team Player- Obviously this is the more minimalist version of the sporty trend. Keeping it all in the greys keeps it sleek, business appropriate, and versatile. The dress is a sweatshirt material so it's just as comfortable as the first look. You could easily take this look so many places by changing out the shoes and accessories or layering a blazer/denim shirt on top.

I love both of these looks and will be digging through my closet to see if I have anything that can contribute to this trend. Have you rocked this trend? I would love to see photos if so, you can add your links in the comments OR do it here.

Post Baby Body...Planning Ahead

I'm over half way to meeting our new little princess! At this stage in the pregnancy I'm also thinking about anything and everything having to do with a 3rd child and all the changes that will be happening in my house. Quite honestly, I'm freaking out a little. Of course I'm doing all the typical things parents do when prepping for a new arrival, but I've also decided to take the time to focus on myself while I still can. 

   27 weeks pregnant, which means in 13 weeks or less I will be meeting our new tiny princess. One of the things women typically worry about with pregnancy is the ever so dreaded weight gain that comes with the territory. I can happily say that I've done extremely well with this pregnancy and so far only had a 12 pound gain. But as we all know, the 3rd trimester tends to have the largest weight gain. Since I probably won't have a ton of extra down time once the baby arrives, I've decided to go ahead and start planning to lose the ba…

IPSY: December Glam Bag Review

I will be reviewing the products I received in my December Ipsy bag since I've had the chance to test them out for about a month now. If you don't know already here's the spill. Instead of doing an "unboxing" type of post, I review the products over the course of a month and then let you know what I thought and all the product details. If you didn't see my November bag review you can check it out HERE.

   This post is a bit late, but we'll be getting back on track for February.
   Here's what I received in my December Ipsy Bag...



1). December's Glam Bag- Not going to lie, this month's bag was a disappointment for sure; it felt cheap, was flimsy, and the zipper was in a weird spot. I will probably end up giving it to my daughter to keep her play makeup in.

2). NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet- Retails for $4.00 (this is the full size)
   I'm not a big tinted lip balm fan, I'd rather just wear a lipstick. This is the first NYX balm I…

Warming The Soul

The weather has been viciously cold in many parts of the United States this winter. If you are anything like me, that means hot delicious soup to warm the mind, body and soul. Soup is a comfort food staple and I feel like people are more drawn to it between October and March, that's especially true for my family. With Florida weather it's just almost too hot for soup any other time of year unless is storming and chilly out.

   Pinterest is my absolute favorite place to find new recipes, so I wanted to share a few of my soup pins with you. I've made all of these except one, which I'll make a note of below, and they've all turned out delicious.


1). Crab & Corn Chowder- This soup is absolutely delicious and hearty. For me, it was something different and unexpected. Growing up in Kentucky we didn't make soups like this, mom always served chili, potato, or broccoli cheddar soup because those are the southern specialties. If you make any of these soups, please …
