Friday's Favorites: KEEP Collective

I've recently discovered a great jewelry line called KEEP CollectiveKEEP Collective is an amazing jewelry company from the creators of STELLA & DOT that allows jewelry lovers to create amazing bracelets, watches, and necklaces with keys that represent important moments in their lives. I couldn't wait to share these great pieces with you all!

1. Choose the KEEPER
  • You have a choice of a double-sided leather bands, double-sided silicone bands, mesh bracelets, bangles, or even a necklace! 
2. Choose your KEYS
  • When you choose your key(s) you'll have a choice of letters, numbers, symbols, gold, silver, pavĂ© pieces, time pieces, lockets, and so many more! 
3. Make your purchase! 

One of the reasons I love KEEP Collective so much is because you can make your pieces as inexpensive or ornate as you want. I of course opted for my initials, making my silver leather bracelet simply glam, but there are still so many choices to look through! 

Head over to KEEP Collective and start making your pieces!

Summer is Here

Now that Memorial Day has come and gone, summer is officially here! It's time to pull all of your shorts and maxi dresses from the back of your closet and put them to use!

If you have been reading my blog for some time now, you know that I love a romper and a jumpsuit! Anything that is simple and allows me to dress it up with great make-up and simply glam jewelry is perfect for me! One of the many reasons I love rompers and jumpsuits (AKA onesies!), is because they are very easy to dress up or down. I found both of these pieces at New York & Co. for less than $40.00 each! The romper was on sale for $25.00 and the vest was originally 59.99; however New York & Co. always has coupons! So I paid only $34.95! WOO HOO!!

New York & Co. is one of my favorite stores to shop in for both work and leisure because they carry a variety of sizes for tall, average, and petite. And, I can easily leave there not feeling like I broke the bank! I never go in there with out a coupon! My advice to all my glamazons is to check either New York & Co., or RetailMeNot for great savings!

Pajama Day

I recently finished four weeks of travel for five day workshops, and the only thing I can think of is laying low to re-fuel for the next set of workshops. Not only do I love vegging-out at home; watching TV and clearing out my DVR, painting my nails, washing my hair, but a great pair of pajamas always makes the day or weekend even better!!

Here are some great options for super soft and comfy pajamas to top off your relaxing weekend!

We Wear Suits to Work

Currently, I am trying to update my wardrobe for work and the task has not been an easy one! I was once told by someone on my career path, "Always dress for the job you want!".  The trouble I most often run into is finding pieces that are appropriate for work and professional .

I can always find something great at New York & Co., however I have learned over the years that having a really great tailor is incredibly important to ensuring your suits and dresses fit well.

Here are some pieces that are on my current wish list!!

How do you all dress for work?

Striped Dress

Once again I have head a very busy two weeks and I am glad to be home! 

When I get home from a busy travel week or weeks with my job, I always have errands to catch up. So, throwing on an easy dress and a pair of sneakers is the best uniform for running around town. 

I found this dress awhile ago at Forever21+ and I am just now getting a chance to show you all! Its sold out currently. however I added some additional links to similar options.
