    While in NYC on work travel, I attended a networking #Pinknic with fellow Boss Babes & Bloggers. See what I threw together (last minute!) to fit the theme of the event, plus gorgeous photos from the eventful afternoon in Central Park.

    Best Walls in Portland, OR.

    Being a PDX native, I’ve seen Portland street art blossom into an expectation around every corner. New murals are constantly popping up throughout this artsy city, and I’ve wandered around and compiled a list of the best [Instagrammable] walls in PDX.

    Sleek in Sportswear

    Most people wake up & just ‘get dressed.’ I wake up and determine what I want my mood/vibe to be for the day, then go through quite a process of carefully curating an outfit. It’s not just something I do because I have to, it’s something I get a lot of enjoyment out of, something that gets me excited to take on the day. I love working for a company where I can dress up or dress down as much as I desire. Let’s be honest, fashion can be painful and it’s not everyday that I chose to be comfortable over being stylish and chic. But last week I put…

    Bringing Back the Bodysuit

    Who’s excited for the solar eclipse?? For all my readers & followers in Portland, it’s going to be insane attempting to travel or drive anywhere on Monday August 21st – an expected extra million people are supposed to be in the state of Oregon from all over the world to view this spectacular phenomenon. So grab your safety-glasses and work from home that day (if you can) to avoid the madness.

The simple garment has been redesigned by countless brands…

    Romwe Review & The Power of Advertisements

    How many times have you been browsing the web when an ad pops up on the side bar and, for some reason, you decide to click it? Well that happened to me several weeks ago. The ad that appeared featured the most adorable floral bralette for only $6.99, so I fell into temptation and went to the site (www.Romwe.com). That’s where I was drawn in even more. I’m a sucker for a fast-fashion deal. Yeah, it might mean that the products are cheap but that’s to be expected. Before I knew it, I had a shopping cart full of 25 items, with a grand total under $200. Romwe.com is one…

    Quarter Century Birthday

    I am 25 today. I’ve been alive for 9,131 days, 1,304 weeks… a quarter of a century! I feel old, but also I kind of feel like my life is just starting. I look back on my 25 years with so much happiness in my heart. I was blessed with an incredible childhood which led to so many opportunities, and I am proud of all I’ve accomplished in my first 25 years. Sometimes I feel like the world can be so negative, and I can complain about such inconsequential things, but lately I’ve been trying to make a conscious effort to change that. I took some time to compile a…
