Fall Fashion, OTS Top

I received products in the following post in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own. 

I was on a roll with fashion posts in late 2016 & the beginning of 2017…. and then I slowed down… or pretty much stopped. I think a huge reason why is that they make me feel silly. I don’t like being the one in front of the camera. It’s a foreign and weird concept for me that just makes me feel indescribably awkward.

Where do I look? How do I stand? What do I do with my hands?! And let’s not even talk about facial expressions. All while trying to remember not to slouch, keep the wind from making my hair a hot mess and suck in my pooch. How is all of this for a dose of honesty  😆  😯  🙄 ?!

So now you know what was going on in my head while the following photos were taken. But I promised an outfit post after I found the OTS shirt of my dreams and I wanted to deliver.

Donut Love & Fashion

I was given this product to review in exchange for my honest thoughts. All opinions are my own

Have you ever stumbled across an item so perfectly suited for you, that you simply had to have it. Something that is so you, that it seems crazy for it not to be yours? That is exactly how I ended up here today, sharing this with you.

After giggling over one of my sayings with a friend, the idea popped into my head that it would make a hilarious and oh so accurate shirt. I put that thought on my mental back burner and carried on. Days or week later, the thought recurred to me while sitting at my computer. I quickly plugged it in to Google, pushed search, and the rest is history. 

What did I Google you’re wondering?! 5 very simple and true words…

Donuts are my love language

Mom Style with prAna

I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com), May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agree to use this product and post my honest opinion on my blog. The opinions posted are my own.

Over the past year I feel like I have learned a thing or two about mom style, including that it actually exists 😆 . For years I only had two kinds of outfits, my “mom clothes” jeans that didn’t’ fit, old t-shirts, and hoodies or my “nice clothes” the stuff that I only wore when leaving the house for a date or to go to church. I completely embraced an outlook that said I wasn’t worth any effort. I never set out to intentionally do so, but day after day of putting myself on the back burner really wore me down and before long those weeks turned to months, turned to years.

In 2016 things began to change.

Copy Cat Fashion, Recreating Outfits You Love

For this Tuesday morning I have something out of the ordinary for you, a fashion post. Over the past 6 months I have been throwing one of these in every once in a while and it has made for a fun change of pace. Today I teamed up with Becky, Meghan and Whitney to talk about recreating outfits.

It doesn’t matter if you see it on TV, a magazine, a blog, or your best friend. Odds are at some point in life you’ve probably seen an outfit, loved it, and wondered how you could recreate it, right? That is exactly what we did for you today. We swapped partners and chose one outfit of theirs to recreate.

A Reason To Smile

This post has been sponsored by Smile Brilliant all opinions are my own.

Those who know me well, know that I have mastered “the smirk”. Please tell me you know what the smirk is?! You know, that quirky half smile where you want to imply that you’re happy but heaven forbid you actually show your teeth. So you force things, trying to look as natural as you possibly can, widen your eyes a bit, and tilt your head ever so slightly. 

I suppose there are dozens of reasons for people to smirk but mine came down to the fact that I was lacking confidence. I didn’t want to show my teeth. Why? It all happened when I saw a photo of myself smiling and I thought is THAT what MY teeth really look like? They were so far from the pearly whites that I wanted. I tried to change things but no matter how much I scrubbed them with whitening toothpastes I just didn’t get the results I was hoping for. So I gave up smiling and trademarked “the smirk” as mine.
