My Vintage Look

Taking a cue from the dresses of the Golden Globes, this vintage dress from Goodwill is spot on! Long sleeves + strong shoulders + sparkles = a stylish night out on the town! (For only $10 too!) Hit up your local thrift stores to search for similar styles from the 80's. And this time keep the shoulder pads in!

Small glitter clusters give this dress a formal sparkle!

Designer fragrances you can afford!

We all love designer fragrances but a bottle can cost you anywhere from $45-$100. How do you get your designer fix without breaking the bank? Instead of buying rip offs - buy the real thing! In a smaller roll-on version! This way when you're feeling extra special you'll have perfume to match! It fits in a purse or clutch easily too!

Some of my fave designer scents:

Vera Wang Princess $18 Sephora

Nanette Lepore $18 Sephora

Versace Bright Crystal $20 Sephora

DKNY Delicious Duo $20 Sephora

Givenchy Very Irresistable $22 Sephora

Fave gowns of the Golden Globes

Angelina Jolie in Versace. Vintage inspired look proves you can look gorgeous without showing tons of skin.

Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive. Can't go wrong with gold. Super edgy and sexy with extreme low-cut back.

Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad. Love the sheer drape with crystal accents. Angelic.

Mila Kunis in Vera Wang. Gorgeous emerald color. Draped fabric looks very royal.

If this is what shoes for the Spring look like….

then I’m there! Stores are already gearing up for the Spring and I’m right there with 'em!

LOVE these lace-up shooties by Fioni for Payless! Vintage inspired with floral cut outs and peep toes, they are just too adorable! Will look great paired with a short Summer dress and a jean jacket! Tan lace-up shooties at Payless $34.99

Every girl can use another pair of ballet flats! I really love these at Old Navy. They come in 8 different colors/prints, but the sheen of the Rose Pink color is just beautiful! Pair with a lightweight babydoll dress for Spring! Ballet flats at Old Navy $19.50

This Spring is all about cut outs! This pair is also vintage inspired but the color adds an extra pop! Wedges are my personal fave cause they are comfy for both day and night! They will look great with a mid-length vintage dress! Merona yellow wedges at Target $22.99

These pleated heeled sandals are splendid! Pair them with a long, flowy maxi dress to get a super flirty look! Or wear with a pair of cut off denim shorts and a guy's white button up for a casual, sexy look! Mossimo black pleated sandals at Target $24.99

The fringed flap on these oxfords give last years' trend a total update! Pair with shorts or short skirt and a cardigan for a playful look! Cream and black golf oxfords at Forever 21 $20.80

Spice up your tank dress

I wear my American Apparel tank dress all the time. I switch off pairing it with the many vintage belts I have, but wanted to spice it up more! I decided to cut 2 small pieces of ribbon and tie them at each shoulder.(Tuck in ends of ribbon so they don't show.) This look really accentuates your shoulders and makes it look like a whole new dress! Quick and easy!

Why you should have tea tree oil in your cabinet

Tea tree oil has so many uses, it really should be considered a household product! Tea tree oil kills bacteria and is also very soothing. Here are the ways tea tree oil can be helpful to you!


Dab directly on break out or add a few drops to any face wash.

Dandruff, Dry or Itchy Scalp

Add 10 drops for every 8 ounces of shampoo to soothe the scalp.


Add a teaspoon of oil to warm bath and soak. Will disinfect and help ease itchiness swelling.

Insect Repellent

To keep bugs out of your house and kitchen wipe cabinets, pantry, and doorways with the oil. Even drip oil in cracks and crevices where bugs may be. To make bug spray add 15 drops of oil to a quart sized spray bottle and spray on skin.

Insect Bites

Applying a drop of oil to an insect bite or sting will help ease the discomfort and kill bacteria.

Cold or Canker Sores

Apply directly to sore twice a day. If sore is inside the mouth mix with water and swish around.

Athlete's Foot

Pour 3-4 drops in palm and mix with lotion. Apply to feet at least once a day until it is eliminated.

Sinus and Bronchial Congestion

Pour 5 drops of oil in pot of water. Once boiling, take off heat and put towel over your head and inhale steam. Also can dab drop of oil near nostrils or on chest. The vapors will help to break up congestion.

I ordered my 100% Australian tea tree oil from Swansonvitamins.com

Nail it with wine shades!

Choose a rich, matte hue this season. Wine shades are seductive and will make a bold statement. Deep burgundies, plums, and reds will do!
