Designer Q&A: Ashley Whittaker

If I had to pick another designer to do my house for me, it would probably be New York’s Ashley Whittaker. I have long been a HUGE fan of her work, and having gotten to know her a bit via Instagram DM’s (the magic of the interwebs), she is also a VERY funny, very kind person which makes me like her all the more. I’m sure you’ve seen her work as she’s always being published in one glossy or another, a true design world darling- and for good reason.  Her modern take on traditional decor is nothing short of genius.  If you don’t follow her on Instagram, you should!  I asked her a few questions about her career and selected some favorite images of her work to share with you here today!

Fashion Friday: Realistic Workout Outfits to Motivate You!

While putting this roundup together I came across A LOT of crop top, super strappy/cut-out workout tops. Even workout bodysuits. And guys, that JUST AIN’T HAPPENIN’! I cannot imagine anything worse than running on a treadmill in a crop top. I’m pretty sure I’ve had actual nightmares about that before. Maybe some of you are super athletic and strong and feel great doing that which is awesome, I however, am like- gimme some coverage and support, thanks. But new workout clothes certainly help inspire the New Years workout resolutions.  Some cute leggings will do wonders for your ability to actually make it to the gym or do a workout video.  So here are some cute looks, that are realistic in budget and sources.  I personally LOVE that Athleta and Old Navy make TALL workout tops for some extra length and am VERY interested in this first quilted New Balance mock neck sweatshirt! Oh la la, be still my introverted, snuggly heart!

Personal style is, obviously, completely personal. Just because a magazine or blogger says something is “in” or “out” does not mean it’s law.  We all live in different areas of the world and like different things – that is what makes life interesting, right?

Golden Globes 2019 Red Carpet Review

Man, I really struggled with this review today!  I really feel so BLAH about most of the dresses and overall looks from last night and maybe there is a reason for that– because I had a lot of trouble also finding great gowns I would have picked instead!  The fashion world feels…

Fashion Friday: 2019 Beauty Update

I like to start my year off by cleaning out my over-stocked medicine cabinet and vanity of products I no longer use or didn’t like and start fresh. I still strive to be one of those people who has fewer, better things all around, and beauty products are a great way to…
