My summer bucket list + the perfect peplum t-shirt

My summer bucket list + the perfect peplum t-shirt

The weather is FINALLY warming up here in Portland, and the sun is out more! I LOVE summer in Oregon…because since it rains most of the year, when it’s hot in the summer, it’s still nice and green! Summer isn’t my favorite season (I’m an Autumn girl all the way) so I thought it would… Read More

Owning self-confidence

I’ve struggled with self-confidence for YEARS. When I think about it — probably for the majority of my life. And it feels like as I get older, I gain confidence in areas I used to have none, and then lose it in others.  Anyone else? However, I KNOW that most women, if not all, struggle… Read More

How to be comfy AND classy for Thanksgiving

How to be comfy AND classy for Thanksgiving

Happy almost Thanksgiving! I can’t believe it’s already the holidays. This year, and ESPECIALLY the last few months, have flown by for me. January is going to be insane, because my husband (still so crazy to say!) will be getting relocated and we’ll be moving out of Oregon. I know, so sad since we just… Read More
