Color Combination Series

WOW it's April, 1/4 of the year already gone...where has 2012 went? 

My inspiration: During Fashion Week the designers really played up colors and prints. 

Peter Som S/S 2012

Several people have emailed me with questions about combining colors. So I've decided to do a series this week, each day featuring a different color combination. If you would like to see a particular combination don't hesitate to email me by going to my contact page.

TODAY'S COMBO...Blue & Yellow
Blue & Yellow

Outfit #1- This is a 2 piece evening look I created with intentions of it appearing to be a dress...I think I succeeded. This can be achieved with any color and/or print by keeping the lines and draping similar.  I kept the heels and clutch neutral with a touch of texture on each. The emerald earrings add another pop of unexpected color while the diamond bracelet mimics the diamond detailing on the top of the skirt.

Outfit #2- A springy dress and cardigan can be worn almost anywhere, as long as there is no semi-formal or formal dress code of course. Pair it with some cute wedges and keep the handbag in the same color family and throw on some delicate jewelry for a pulled together sophistication. This dress makes me want to pack up lunch and have a picnic at the lake with my hubby and a bottle of wine (putting that on my calendar for the weekend...possibly). 

Outfit #3- Cool, casual, and colorful, not to mention comfy. This is such a great outfit for running errands, lounging around, and hittin' the classroom. Depending on your weather swap out the jeans for cutoffs or denim capris. Pink flats and a yellow fringe bag bring the playful fun-ness into the look. Yes, I'm pretty sure fun-ness is not a word. Just see it as a tiny dose of me and my personality.
   *This combo doesn't have to exclude other colors either, it also looks good with some added in red, green, or pink. 

Email me a picture of you rockin' your favorite colors and a description for a chance to be my featured reader of the week. And don't forget to enter the giveaway 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 …
