One Dress Can Change Your Life...

Six months ago today I wore this dress from Forever 21 (in which I purchased over two years ago). Anyone that knows me knows that I am NOT a big fan of color. After getting dressed I 2nd guessed my outfit choice multiple times before I even walked out my front door. Once in the car I may have been a little over-dramatic when my friend’s boyfriend asked if we were all going to prom. Over dressed maybe?!?! It was just like any other evening out, dinner at the Bistro and then maybe a drink or two at Friday After5.  Little did I know that night my life would change forever as I knew it. Everyone says you find “LOVE” when you least expect it and they’re right. Andrew and I met on May 27th just before 10 PM.  And the rest… well it’s just history in the making.

A New Blog

Quite often my best ideas come to me in the middle of the night causing me to toss and turn until the moment I become so restless that I’m forced to make random notes to myself via my iPhone. Last Sunday I cooked twice, breakfast and dinner (btw I cooked more last Sunday then I probably have in the last 6 months. Not that I can’t or don’t want to… I just had an overly busy summer running my two boutiques). That evening while cooking I realized how much I truly missed spending time in my well equipped kitchen. At that very moment I decided to start a new blog: THE BLONDE IN THE KITCHEN.

This blog will follow my attempts to becoming a little more domestic then I have been in the recent months. I’m super excited to share all of my favorite recipes as well as a few easy recipes for last minute dinner parties… and maybe even a few of my great grandmothers “secret” recipes that got passed down to me early this year. My 1st post on my new blog will be up soon! Follow my new blog HERE! (DON’T WORRY I WILL STILL CONTIUNE TO BLOG ABOUT FASHION ON THIS BLOG)

Make-Up Inspiration: Versace for H&M

Saturday the much anticipated Versace for H&M hit stores. Within hours the most coveted pieces were already sold out and selling for triple the original cost on eBay.  While there’s several pieces I would love add to my wardrobe… I’m much more interested in the makeup and hair worn by all the models during the Versace for H&M fashion show held in New York City. Sleek straight hair and black eyes. LOVE.

New Eye Candy for the Coffee Table:

I am a self proclaimed fashion magazine hoarder. My book shelves are stacked with books that I’ll probably never read and thousands of fashion magazines that I bought just to look at the pictures. Here are my latest purchases that are currently on display: 1st issue of’s printed magazine and this years edition of Vogue’s Best Dressed

This past Friday my Grandfather Dallas passed away. He was a wonderful man… everyone who knew him loved him. We miss him so much already. Its been a rough couple of weeks (he suffered a stroke a few Sundays back). I apologize to me readers for my lack of blogging but I felt it was appropriate to  take time off to heal emotionally and be there for my dad. I hope all of you understand. I promise that normal blogging will resume soon. Special thanks goes to all of my readers/friends all over the world who said a special prayer for me and my family, as well as those who sent emails/messages, comments and tweets. THANKS SOOOOOO MUCH!!!!
