Trashy Diva

When I was in New Orleans a few weeks ago, I feel in love with a local boutique, Trashy Diva! I first discovered the boutique when we were walking to breakfast our last day in the city but was sad to see that they didn’t open till noon.  Luckily I was able to talk my boyfriend into walking back after we ate so I could check out the merchandise. HOLY COW, was I in love! From the minute I walked… Read more »

Cocktails + Summer Bookclub

I’ve wanted to be a part of a book club, for as long as I can remember – so much so, that I think it’s about time I start a book club of my own – now if only I could add an extra day or two to each month, so that I had the time to make it happen.  Minor details, that we will just have to set aside for now. As you know, I have partnered with Mode… Read more »

Lace Top, J Crew Leather Shorts, Old Navy Bucket Bag, Sage+Sparkle

One of my favorite looks this summer is a sheer lace top paired with a print or lace bra – even better when you throw in leather shorts.   I have been looking for the perfect lace top pretty much since the sun came out to play for summer and I finally found it at TJ Maxx. I have been waiting to wear this piece for a few weeks now, but I didn’t have the right undergarments. With a lace… Read more »

Sequin Heart Tank Top, Sweet Pea & Tulip, Madewell Shorts, Sam Edelman Woven Flats, Old Navy Bucket Bag, Sage+Sparkle

Rain in New Orleans is no joke! Luckily we were able to take these pictures about 15 min’s before it started raining, but once it did, the entire french quarter was knee-deep in water.  No joke! I kid you not.  We had to walk back to our hotel, in water that, at times, was up to our knees!   We saw cars quickly being covered by water, manholes flying in the air from the water pressure, and roaches scurrying up… Read more »

Hot Air Balloon, Napa Valley, Sage+Sparkle

A few months back, Memorial Day Weekend, we headed out west for my sisters college graduation.  We had a wonderful weekend spending time with family and seeing a few friends. First let me start by saying, I love hot air balloons – Disney’s Up is one of my favorite movies and this Up themed photo shoot pulls on my heartstrings every time. Being on the west coast for more than 2 days and not working, I took the opportunity to… Read more »

Red Summer Dress, Old Navy Bucket Bag, Sage+Sparkle

If you follow along on Instagram, then you know I spent the weekend in New Orleans,  affectionately refereed to as NOLA – more on what we did, where we stayed later, and most importantly where we ate later. Yesterday, all of the festivities caught up with me – hence the lack of a post.  But can you blame me? Sunday night was the “On the Run Tour”.  J+B on one stage… need I say more! The night was amazing, but… Read more »

Parker Skirt, MICHAEL Michael Kors Shoes, Sage+Sparkle

It has been one long week in my world! We just finished up hosting a 3 day summit for our team, and today I have another early morning training that I’m hosting.  But I do have something to look forward to that has made the day/week much easier to attack… My love and I are on the run this weekend – headed to NOLA for the Jay + Bey concert!!! Oh, and to eat lots of delicious creole food –… Read more »

Matte Sequins Tank, Valentino Red Embellished Skirt, Sage + Sparkle

This past weekend I attended a beautiful bridal shower for a dear friend, Sylvia that was hosted by my amazingly talented BFF, Yaz.  If you follow me on instagram, then you have seen some of the amazing events she has put together in the past.  Here is a small peek in to what she created for Syl’s bridal shower, with the table setting and overall decor – minus the chair and tables, everything else she brought in for the event….

interior style bedroom makeover.002

While my boyfriend and I have only lived together for a year now, we never fully finished decorating our bedroom.  When I first set out to decorate the room, I wanted it to be bright and happy.  We started by painting the walls a soft yellow with the intent to decorate the rest of the room in white and grey with dark wood accents.  Shortly after we painted the wall, I changed my mind – that was a year ago… Read more »
