I have really enjoyed trying new techniques with my floral arrangements! This time I used grocery store flowers with a tea leaf wrapped in the vase to create a beautiful arrangement. I was in a passionate purple and blue mood this week…checkout my video!
It’s hard to believe that August is here already! My summer vacation is over but, the warm weather calls for cool comfortable clothes that keep me in a summer state of mind!
This sleeveless casual dress from Ann Taylor outlet is perfect for a busy afternoon and my brown leather sandals and cross body handbag add to my easy breezy style and keep me comfortable all day long.
This whole outfit was a part of my outlet summer haul! I try to visit the outlet stores at least once each season for great deals on end of summer finds and back to school bargains. The Camarillo Outlet is great, see link here. However, when I don’t want to make that drive, I find that the Citadel Outlet is a great spot too! Link here.
I hope you have enjoyed this post. Have a wonderful Wednesday!
I finally had an opportunity to take another sewing class! If you have been following my blog, you know I decorated a sewing space in my daughter’s room and took my first class last year. You can checkout my sewing room here. Unfortunately, I have not touched my sewing machine in months! So when my sister mentioned that she was taking a class called Sip and Sew with Stitched By Shay… I jumped at the opportunity! Continue reading →
When I went to the Loft website yesterday it said 97 days of summer! It was nice to see that reminder because if you go into the stores, all you see are Back to School signs and fall items already! I am not ready to let go of summer or my vacation yet, so it was great to find this flowery off the shoulder dress and this fabulous bamboo bag. This bamboo bag is perfect to carry all summer long and a great reminder that summer is still in full bloom! Continue reading →
I love flowers! I think it started when I got to be the flower girl in my uncle’s wedding when I was about 6 years old. My family says that I barely wanted to drop the rose petals from my basket. I guess I did not want to let them go!Continue reading →
So our old barbecue grill finally gave out after 15 years of grilling! I loved that grill but, it was definitely time to get a new one. After looking around at different models, we decided to go with the Weber Spirit. We got it at Lowe’s with free assembly and delivery so we were happy campers! After the grill was delivered, I could not wait to fire it up and try this Shrimp Boil and Foil Packets recipe I saw on Facebook!Continue reading →
Now that summer is upon us, I am thinking beach, vacay, outdoor concerts, barbecue, and fun in the sun! Checkout my picks for summer essentials for all of your summer outings. I call it-summer in a bag ! First, start with a great summer tote bag!
Let’s Flamingle! This was the theme for my flamingo themed pool party that I hosted to raise money for a great charity, promote my wine tasting business, and just have fun! Take a look at my video to see how to throw a fabulous flamingo pool party!
When I saw this dress, I immediately thought about Hawaii! I have never been there but, this tropical print seems like the beautiful flowers and easy breezy feel you would enjoy when you are there. I am so excited because my husband and I have planned our first trip there for our 25th wedding anniversary and our 50th birthdays! So I am starting to collect a few pieces for the trip.

Color and Denim-Work it Wednesday!
I love this denim strapless dress and I crossed my fingers that I would be able to squeeze into it this summer, lol! I brought it on clearance back in January at White House Black Market with visions of wearing it on a warm summer night or to brunch with the girls. With the help of a good strapless bra and Spanx I am in…whoo hoo! Continue reading →
