The Best Subscription Boxes for Men

- Featured, General Fabulousness, Let's Spend Some Money

I love giving and receiving subscription boxes. For the giver, gifting subscription boxes is convenient but can still be personable. For the recipient, receiving a subscription box is a great reminder of the original giver long after the holidays are over. Plus, they get to receive something in the mail that’s not a bill and is customized to their specific interests. Everybody wins! Here we’ve rounded up our favorite subscription boxes to give – and  get – as gifts for…

#OOTD: When In Doubt (or a Hurry), Go All Black

- Outfit of the Day

As Jay-Z once said, “All black, everything.” (Yes, I take life advice from both Jay-Z AND Beyonce, #thankyouverymuch). An all-black outfit is my go-to when mornings are crazy.  It’s simple, chic and you can easily dress it up with statement jewelry and some fabulous colored shoes. Try it the next time you hit snooze too many times or your toddler freaks out because you gave him milk in a BLUE cup, you nasty woman!     Get the Look! Black…

Gift Ideas for Your Best Mom Friend

- Featured, Let's Spend Some Money

Every mom needs a mom BFF: the one you call when you just can’t with your kids for one more minute or when you need a glass of wine at 3PM. She can yell at your kids like they are her own and you can text her at 3AM about the latest celebrity breakup. If it was elementary school, you’d totally give her either the “BE FRI” or “ST ENDS” half of the heart necklace. via GIPHY The Updated Version…

#OOTD: Cargo Cool

- Outfit of the Day

Fall is my absolutely favorite season to dress with. I love bundling up in layers, thick knits and beanies. Too bad I live in Georgia, where you don’t even need a coat until maybe December. So this is how we do fall in the south: a lightweight, embroidered jacket with a cute little hood.  I kept it clean by pairing with a white tank and dark jeans, but had to have a little fun on the accessories with a gold…

KidBox is Stitch Fix for Kids

- General Fabulousness, Reviews

While lately my last few Stitch Fixes have been disappointing, the idea of clothing that someone else picked out showing up on my doorstep is still pretty damn awesome.

Can’t get any easier, right? A new KidBox is available every quarter as the seasons change, and they offer…

Stitch Fix: Weekend Getaway

- Reviews

Recently, I got to go on a work trip to a very fabulous location. So I did what any working mom would do: asked a grandma to come watch the kids and bought a ticket for my husband to meet me out there. We have not had a kids-free trip in YEARS (literally seven!), plus it was right around both of our birthdays, so we were ready to have some fun. Of course, that means new clothes! And since there’s…
