Stitch Fix Review: Early Fall

Reviews

Fall means cooler weather and warm muted colors like wine, plum, pumpkin and marigold. It’s my favorite season of all time and I find myself dreaming of pumpkin patches, apple picking and bonfires as soon as the calendar flips to September 1! Since moving to the south however, I often struggle with how to balance my desire to layer on scarfs and jackets the first day of September with the 80 degree temps in Georgia. With that in mind, I…

Prime Wardrobe: Espandrille Review

Let's Spend Some Money, Reviews

Open Toe Espadrilles are a big trend this summer! They’re perfect for dressing up denim shorts and a tee on the weekends or paired with skinny pants and a blazer for the office. If you’re like me, shoes are really hard to fit. My feet have been tortured by years of running and it seems I need to try on about 100 pairs of shoes to find one that fits! Enter Amazon Prime Wardrobe to the rescue. I ordered multiple…

Battle of the Boxes: Stitch Fix vs Trendsend

Let's Spend Some Money, Reviews, Style

It’s no secret that I love a good box subscription, especially when it involves having great clothes shipped straight to my door! Stitch Fix and Evereve Trendsend are two of my favs! Stitch Fix ships 5 separate pieces based on your style profile and a quick note to your stylist all for a $20 style fee. The fee gets applied to anything you purchase and you earn 25% off your order if you keep all five pieces. Trendsend does not…

The Best Sports Bra for Those Blessed in the Chest

Reviews, Style

I hate exercising. There are a variety of reasons why, but one of the biggest ones (no pun intended) is that after three kids, things start to fly around when you’re moving and they’re not properly secured. I’ve found that one way for me to hate exercising a little less is to constantly change it up with different classes: barre pilates one day; spinning the next; and then maybe one day I’ll graduate on to the Zumba class. But in…

Stitch Fix Review: Not Too Shabby

Reviews, Style
Mia Ozella Laser Cut Sandal

My last few Stitch Fixes have been, how do you say, no bueno. My last one in September was so horrendous that I took a brief hiatus from the service, even though they offered to re-style me for free. After having several “I hate all my clothes!” days in a row, I decided what the hell, let’s give Stitch Fix another try. With the $20 styling fee waived, I literally had nothing to lose. In my note to my stylist,…

Just in case you haven’t heard of Evereve Trendsend, it’s one of the newer box subscription clothing services for women. The difference is this one is designed exclusively with moms in mind.

This subscription service does not have a styling fee on the front end like others do. Instead of sending a few pieces,…

Revlon One Step Hair Dryer

Beauty, Reviews

All over Facebook, women are posting about the Revlon One Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer with claims of this dryer “taming the frizz,” being “life-changing,” and “cutting drying time in half!” But what really happens when you click add to cart? Does this new miracle product live up to the hype? My hair is fine by nature and while it has some natural wave, it’s definitely never been coarse or hard to straighten. My problem is, like most moms, a busy morning schedule.…

Stitch Fix: Pre-Spring Review

Reviews, Style

Stitch Fix arrival day is always a mixture of giddy nervousness when I pull into my driveway and see my Stitch Fix box by the front door. This time was no different!  I decided to wait until after the kids went to bed to open my box and it about did me in!  By the time I opened my box, I was like a toddler waiting to dig in to their piece of birthday cake, 2 kids too long!  At…
