Giveaway: SOL REPUBLIC x Simone Legno (tokidoki) headphones

I love that these days everything can reflect your style.  From the case of any of your electronics to headphones.  Nothing is boring anymore.  I of course am in love with the SOL REPUBLIC headphone design on the left because of the paisley design:)  But, I think both are funky.  And, it's not just about the look, the sound is also perfection.
I'm excited for this giveaway!  I was offered a pair of these headphones and an opportunity to share a pair with one of my readers.
I just would like for you to follow me on twitter here.  And, friend SOL REPUBLIC here.
Then, leave a comment below sharing what you will be listening to with these headphones:)
Giveaway ends March 8th.

Thank you to everyone who entered!  The winner is:

Indian Inspired Items from Urban Outfitters

I went to Urban Outfitters today to try out some pants that one of my favorite bloggers, Justina Blakeney who has the BEST instagram and Pinterest EVER!  Get ready to be inspired!  But, she had LOVED the bottom left pant in red and when I found out they were only $32 and looked Indian...I had to check them out.  They run a little big so make sure and try them on in store if you can.  I liked the middle pair, but they were poly and fit I opted for the comfort of cotton:)

Amazing fashion discovery! Mara Hoffman for QVC

I have been so excited about getting a Mara Hoffman piece that I decided to youtube Mara Hoffman to see what the designer is all about and happened to find that she has had a line for QVC called Gypsy for about two years!  How did I miss this!?  And the pieces she was sharing on the video were AMAZING!  I am now on the search for these pieces on eBay of course:)  It looks like some of the pieces from the video I found are on sale now...maybe she is no longer collabing with QVC...looking into things now...until then, get a Mara Hoffman item for a great price now!

A family that wear UGG Australia shoes together... #UGGkidsStyle

Happy Valentines Day!  It's all about the ones you love:)

I was offered a chance for all of my kids to get some UGG Australia Shoes and thought it would be adorable so I said yes...I have a pair of UGG Australia Shoes with paisleys that I love (that I've had forever:)...but, only wear around the house or if we go to the mountains or something.  I know that the days since girls were wearing UGG Australia Shoes with their shorts in Cali are gone...but, I think they still serve a purpose and that is to be comfy and cute when it's cold.
I LOVE how the shots of us in our UGG Australia that we did with our family portraits:)  I'm really into matching shoes for the family right now:)  Once these kids are walking the shoe fun is on!  Sahara LOVES running around in these though!  They are her go-to shoe now.  I love when she wears them with her boho dresses since will live in AZ and winter weather changes so much from cold to warm:)   Check out the UGG Australia Shoe site in the kids section to see the adorable selection and how they styled the kids!  Adorable!   #UGGkidsStyle

My new favorite jean at Old Navy

Apparently there was a change at the jeans at Old Navy when my twins were born.  I was so excited about this change when I found out they had a higher waist option available (today)!  It's called the "Sweetheart."  I will have to get the waist taken in because there is a gap...but, for this price...around $30 it's worth it!  Got my first pair of black jeans because of blogger, Ascot Friday.  I follow all of her social media sites and her blog as well as Target Does it Again which I've shared before.

One of the Old Navy associates told me that Thursday a denim sale should begin and continue for two weeks.  If she is correct, I'm returning my jeans and getting two pairs!  Denim and black:)

Aritzia is now selling online

I know...they've been doing it for a while now...but, just in case you didn't know.  We are still waiting on H&M to join the club now that everyone is entering the online world of shopping.  But, I'm excited Aritzia is here after I found them in Oregon two years ago.  Plus they have an online magazine and they are having a SALE!  What can get better than this!?:)  Here are a few items I'm loving on the site right now.  Have you shopped here yet?


Ok...reviewing the site and it doesn't look like everything...the trendier items are on the site...

This is a Canadian brand that knows how to put the casual cool look together.  I love when I'm inspired by the styling a site or brand has for the pieces they choose for their store or label.  I think I need this's really comfy but still flattering.

I love how Mara does the layering, the high-low look of the tops/dresses and the COLORS and prints are just genius!  I LOVE everything out this label!

Jonathan Adler for bareMinerals: Meet Leslie Blodgett & Jonathan Adler

I am SOOO excited abou this!  I've always been a HUGE fan of BareMinerals!  I've been using it for years...and although the product is amazing...the packaging was never exciting.  Jonathan Adler is making moves!  He is everywhere right now...from designing the set on The Fashion Police, has his own store and as we can see he keeps doing more.  This is so worth purchasing ASAP!

Pregnant Pause...well, kind of

Well, I'm def not preggers anymore and I've lost a majority of the baby weight (yay!). But, I am still breast feeding and plan on doing it as long as possible. With that said I can't go back to all of my fab clothing yet because I keep leaking (I know) and need to keep access to the jugs in mind. Doesn't sound very exciting, Hugh?:). Most people opt for button down tops and dresses and others get creative with layering cotton tees and tanks. But, I get bored and need more options:). So, I was excited when a maternity brand called, Seraphine contacted me and wanted me to try out their maternity line. I happily told them I was no longer preggers and they told me that their line is all about being used after as well. I thought it was a genius idea and wanted to test it out. I ordered a boho mixed print maxi dress. First of all the fit is great as far as working after being pregnant. And the big test on if I can breast feed in it passed as well. I got excited to see it was made in India and the same style dress was worn by Jessica Alba while she was preggers (for anyone who cares:).
Since I line in AZ I also think it would be fun wearing my faux fur vest or my denim vest with it. I also think it will be great alone. I can't wait to play with this dress a lot!
