How I Incorporate Trends Into My Wardrobe

Hey there!  It’s Wednesday, time to #FlexYourFinds.  How many of us have seen those super gorgeous Gucci Cruise 2017 bags trending right now?  Is your hand up?  Mine is too!  I love Gucci!  But let’s be clear these bags are an investment.  When I look to purchase high end I will go for a more classic bag that will last through several seasons.  But I love what Alessandro Michele has been doing with the brand.  The Gucci Cruise 2017 Collection gave me everything I need!   While I love high end brands, these bags are super trendy.  They’re hot now but probably not so much in a year….

You Need A Pair Of Red Boots This Fall

  My nail tech and I share a love for shopping!  Like most of us!  She was talking about an upcoming concert and showed me a pair of red slouch boots on a site we both love–ASOS.  I had never thought about a red boot but these were super cute and I was tired of boots not fitting my calves!!! After she showed me I was scrolling and saw this look from fellow blogger Sweenee Style from Indianapolis and was inspired by this look!  I was so inspired, I decided to create a similar look! As much as I wanted to wear the jean jacket I needed the…

Transition Your Shoes To Fall

      We are having a really warm, summer & fall mix type situation in Michigan.  So I was asked the question by my podcast co-host Timmi about what type of shoes do you wear in this weather.  It’s too cold for open toe (even though you have a few people wearing them) but it’s not cold enough for a full on boot.  Like today it was 71, then down to 65, and literally up to 76 in the same day.  So I put together a few of my favorite styles to wear for the fall transition. Perforated Oxfords A perforated oxford is one of my favorites….

The Positivity Charge Retreat Detroit 2017

  It’s been a minute.  Blogging, working, “mom”ing, and “wife”ing can definitely take its toll.  I have so many drafts of posts that I just had to take a minute to breath. I received an invite to attend a retreat called The Positivity Charge.  I immediately scrunched my nose.  That’s what you do when you’re in a negative space.  So I said, you know what I just need to go and do exactly what the invite said.  Recharge. Connect. Build Your Brand. The Positivity Charge is a health and wellness day retreat in which attendees are exposed to methods positive thinking to cultivate success in all areas of their…

Birthday Dinners, Off The Shoulder Dresses, & Target

So my birthday was Monday (yay!).  I had a great weekend at The Pnk Out, One Dope Show, and Pretty Lit Live. On Monday, Mr. PnkPanda (he hates that) planned a really chic dinner at my favorite spot in Ann Arbor–Zola Bistro.  Robin was our host/waitress for the evening and she did a wonderful job.     Zola Bistro has one of the BEST brunches, so if you’re in the Ann Arbor area you should check them out.  I ordered the Chicken Piccata and it was really good.  It was served with potatoes, sautéed spinach, and artichokes.  I had them put the capers on the side.   The…

How Forever21+ Heats Up Plus Size!

  So a few months ago I took an InstaStories poll about a Forever21+ dress I was thinking about wearing on my anniversary.  After everyone said I should, I decided to go for it.  I purchased the dress from Forever21+ thinking, “let’s see how this goes”.  As I am sure you know Forever21+ fabric quality and sizing can be super iffy.  It was a new item when I bought it so there were no reviews but in the details I noticed that they had a disclaimer that the brand was not a Forever21+ brand.  So this leads me to believe that they are buying from wholesale brands like…

Best Way to Mix Prints – with JustFab & Marshalls

    When It All Falls Down… It’s been a rough couple of months.  My family has experienced a great deal of loss that’s just been extremely overwhelming.  I took a break that lasted longer than I expected.  I’ve been taking care of my husband that has lost three members of his family within the last four months.  I don’t think that anything could prepare anyone for that kind of loss.     A New Normal Glad to be back blogging, it can definitely be a form of therapy.  He’s my photographer and this has been a way to help him get back to a new “normal”.  For…
