Collaboration with Sugar Lips Apparel

(photo via Sugar Lips Apparel)
I was super excited when I received an email a few weeks back about a possible collaboration with Sugar Lips Apparel, a company based out of downtown Los Angeles (one of my favorite cities). I immediately accepted their offer.  Yesterday a package arrived in the mail along with a letter welcoming to the Sugar Family. Pictures of the styling project coming very soon!!!!!

Shop Madness Is for the Cause

(all photos via Madness Is)

I met Emily the designer of Madness Is at a RAW event in Nashville last July. Shes young and very talented... I want every piece from her collection (my fave are the elegantly insane shirts). $5.00 for each t-shirt from her My Body Rocks Collection is donated to an eating disorder awareness organization.  In honor of the "Eating Disorder Awareness" Week next week... shop for the cause! I'm going to purchase the Perfect is Boring t-shirt shown below. The t-shirts from this collection are only $24.99.

Just out of Town

(interior of Hotel Preston)
For day 2 and 3 of my birth week celebration Andrew and I are staying in Nashville (the beloved city I use to consider home). Week booked a room at Hotel Preston. Normally when I’m in town I prefer to stay at A Lofts owned by W Hotels (my favorite hotel chain)… but I figured we would mix things up a bit. I’ve sort of always wanted to stay at Hotel Preston. I use to pass it on the way to class every morning and the interior pictures have always been intriguing (I love the mix of black and white photography/modern d├ęcor). As for what we are going to do while we are in town? Shop and Eat (there are several places I must go every time I’m in Nashville: Whole Foods, Nordstrom and Pinkberry). I believe we are probably going to give into our inner child and hit up Dave and Busters for bowling/arcade games (I’m quite competitive). You can follow me on Instagram to see exactly what we will be getting ourselves into… If you don’t follow me on there already you can find me by searching for theblondedaria or follow me on Twitter HERE

“Birth Week” Kick-Off

Tonight officially starts the kick off of my usual birth week festivities (call me selfish… but I just don’t think one single day of celebrating is enough!). Plans for tonight: Dinner at the Famous Bistro in downtown Owensboro, KY. If you have been following my blog since the beginning you know that I’m a huge fan of this place and that I’ve hosted a dinner party here for my birthday at least the last seven years. No dinner party tonight… just a fun girls night out with one of my dear friends Crystal. (please note: I will be eating here again later on in the birth week celebration)

Rock & Republic for Kohl's

Last night while looking for some last minute details for my Valentine's Day evening I stopped in Kohl's and to my surprise I found an entire section of Rock and Republic. I had totally forgot about this lining coming to Kohl's. I didn't make it over to check out the men's section or the shoe department but I will be going there to do so tonight. I have to have these shoes that I just saw on the Kohl's website:

I love the new pieces from this collection. The photos on the item listings look like those from a fashoin blog instead of a photo shoot in the studio with a white black drop. What are your thoughts?
