Breast Cancer Journey – Part 1

Hi guys! This topic might scare some of you but I'm hoping curiosity will lead you to watch/read this post today. I decided to share my breast cancer journey with you for many different reasons.

What will you see in the video: I'm talking about how I discovered my lumps. Where I went to get them checked, tips on…

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!

Parker Smith Jeans & Broad Ripple Hangouts

Lack of color tan hat and cult gaia bag

Did I tell you about my latest denim obsession? Parker Smith Jeans it is. And to light up our gloomy winter days, I decided to take you around the hip Broad Ripple area in Indy to show you my favorite hangout spots while wearing my favorite Parker Smith Jeans! First stop The Garden Table. They have a gorgeous location downtown but I also love this smaller, more rustic version in BR. It's just as popping with a cool crowd! If you love fresh produce, health-conscious and delish gourmet brunch foods you'll definitely love this place. Not to mention some of the best cold-pressed juices in town! I'm all for their avocado toast with topped with an egg and the Hoosier Heater juice is my all-time favorite!! All Photos Credit to Amber Bryant from Images By…

Ironworks Hotel Indy Preview

Pajama set karina style diaries - Ironworks Hotel Indy Preview featured by popular Indianapolis blogger, Karina Style Diaries

Hubs and I celebrated Christmas together a couple days earlier last month. We were gifted a "staycation" and had a remarkable stay at the Ironworks Hotel Indy, complete with a delicious date at the town's talk Provision Restaurant and brunch at the yummiest Rize Restaurant. It was such a nice escape from the craziness of the season and we were beyond impressed with the whole experience. Sometimes all we need is a night out to re-connect with our spouse and talk to each other and not about the kids!! I 100% recommend it :) IRONWORKS HOTEL INDY REVIEW Let me just tell you how beautiful the Ironworks Hotel Indy looks even from the outside. It's so unique, like nothing I've ever seen. A combination of modern industrial atmosphere with refined touches of luxury, leathers and rustic…

Olly Girl Multivitamins – Part II

Bella and Sophia horse Olly Girl campaign

*This post is a part of a sponsored campaign with Olly Girl. As always all opinions are my honest and own experience. Thanks for supporting the brands that support me. Since the girls have been taking their Olly Girl vitamins for over a month I wanted to circle back and tell you some of the things we noticed in their daily lives. As a refresher (or if you didn't catch our first post) Olly Girl is a multivitamin gummy especially designed with the needs of growing ladies ages 12-17 in mind. Their multivitamin is formulated with Biotin to target strong hair, skin and nails. It contains vitamin C which plays a role in collagen production (something I know they'll thank me later in their lives). It supports bone health and keeps their immune systems in check. Besides…

KeraHealth France Review

KeraHealth hair supplement and foods good for hair featured by popular Indianapolis beauty blogger, Karina Style Diaries

You guys know I'm all about healthy choices when it comes to food (although I have been making some shameful choices lately - must confess!!) such choices affect not only the health of our bodies but our hair, skin and nails as well. Like that saying goes "You are what you eat" I believe it 100% . Now some exceptions to this rule are genetics and diseases that are not necessarily related to eating habits, other than that we all need to get our acts together and make better choices! On the other hand though we can simplify the quest for healthy hair with a supplement that will deliver the nutritional components our hair needs the most right into its root! Quite literally :) I'm talking about the newest launch in the health and…
