Babbleboxx: HER Health Month

Pure synergy turmeric supplements

I'm so excited to partner with babbleboxx for HER Health Month this May. If you've been following my little journey here for a while you might know I care a lot about healthy eating and exercise habits but I do have my "falling off the wagon" phases. This box was an incentive to put me back on track while joining the Faster Way to Fat Loss program recommended by my fellow blogger and mama of three Beth Chappo! The box came with several products related to a healthy lifestyle, and I'm so eager to unveil all of these goodies one by one for you, my friends!!! 1. Zenni UV Blue Blockers. The more I read about the damage blue light from computers and other devices (smart-phones, i-pads) the more I want to share the…

Top 5 Statement Spring Pieces

Wide striped pants

We couldn’t be more excited about the arrival of spring. Spring is all about awakening – the awakening of nature, the awakening of ourselves, the awakening of fashion. It’s very difficult to choose the wardrobe essentials for a specific season as the choices tend to be very subjective. For some people, it’s the always popular must-haves, such as the little black dress or a regular white T-shirt that can never go out of fashion and can be worn at all times. Other people, however, include all the popular trends into their essential spring collection – items that are trendy at that very moment. Here, we have a list of the five top statement pieces for spring. Some are popular at the moment and will be in the years to come as well, while some…

Magnolia Boutique Spring Styles

Magnolia boutique

Just got back from an enjoyable morning with the Magnolia Boutique ladies at their headquarters on the south side on Indy! I did a try-on sesh with the cutest Spring Styles. If you've missed it head on to their stories.  As promised I will show you a couple of my favorite spring looks from this morning. The first is one of their best sellers, and pretty much a staple for the busy gal who wants to look polished without trying too hard. This curved hem halter top maxi dress in dusty pink is as soft as it looks. A great style to wear belted or unbelted. Changing the accessories will give new life to the dress. It's so incredibly versatile! I'm wearing a size small. It comes in S, M and L. It also comes in…

This past Sunday myself and a beautiful group of Indy girl bosses were treated to a preview of the Mother's Day brunch menu at The Capital Grille in downtown Indy. Needless to say it was feast!

Spring Styles Under $30

kitchen wooden balcony

I love budget friendly fashion pieces that are actually so cute they look expensive! These spring styles under $30 were my last month's finds and I'd love to share them with you because they cause quite the stir when I wore them out!! First find is this jumpsuit made of a thin cotton fabric that's breathable and lightweight. I love the tie on the waist and adore the vintage floral print. The sleeveless and Capri length style makes this perfect for summer with a denim jacket for the cool breeze days! flower print tie waist jumpsuit $24 // sunnies comes in three colors // Helana knotted sandal // round rattan bag [show_shopthepost_widget id="3112077"] Next, I wore this bell sleeve mini-dress to an event in town and loved the buzz it created.

Conrad Indy Blogger Brunch

Conrad Indy Blogger Brunch

Hi boys and girls, life's been busy around these parts. We're all getting into that awakening spring mood and I'm excited about revamping some rooms at the Reske Home. But first things first, a while ago I was invited by Beth Chappo from Seersucker and Saddles to be at a very exclusive brunch with other amazing women who are also Indianapolis Style Bloggers. This event was hosted by the lux downtown Conrad Indy, and we got to stay at their magnificent Collection Suites.

Ladies, by now we are more than ready for the warm weather so hopefully, this post will inspire you to get some spring shopping done and pray pray pray for the sun to shine again here in the midwest!!!

White Easter Dress

Easter outfit ghingham shoes

Easter is literally a few days away and I'm so ready! To kick off this Holy Week I want to celebrate the resurrection of our Christ in style and in humbleness. Wearing my Sunday's best white eater dress AND having nothing but gratitude to show! I love Easter for so many reasons, colorful pastels, and sweet feelings. This is the season of the purples and lilacs, and I love it. But I do understand it might not be the best color for everyone. Also, it won't give you the same longevity as a neutral color. So I decided to style my very beloved (not to say old) LWD!! This one is at least 5 years old and I wear it EVERY spring and summer, multiple times. Now that's something fast-fashion won't give you!!

Free People Spring Dresses

Free people counting daisies red dress

Guys I've been drooling over all the spring inspired looks on my screen, so when I found these two Free People dresses I knew I had to share them with you! So there I went with my girl Amber to venture into Indiana's lovely winter to create some inspiration of my own... I honestly (and biased) think we nailed these 2 looks, but let me tell you shooting these in a 30-degree weather is not what it seems! Hahaha that being said I have soooo much more respect for models who do photo shoots and model clothes for a living! Brrrrr About this Red Counting Daisies Off The Shoulder Dress (that also comes in yellow, navy and white). It's a full skirt, think doll dress with pockets (YES, how exciting is that!!!) and a thick linen fabric that…
