Fall Fabric Round Up

This is not going to be a post that resonates with everyone… but I wanted to share some of the fall fabrics I recently purchased. I don’t have a ton of time to sew right now, but mid-September I plan on getting back into the saddle. I have a couple of pillows I want to…

A Sunny Disposition

I bought this dress in both colors– navy (of course) and the yellow. Not all yellows are the same and this is a good one. Bright and warm. Feels perfect for late summer and will look cute with sneaks and a denim jacket into the fall. It’s such a colorful dress and honestly when I…

Plateaus

In high school, our “dry” workouts were held in a loaned Sunday School classroom in a very hot church. So many, very uncomfortable, hours were spent in there. It wasn’t the biggest room so ergs, the rowing machines crews train on, were kind of on top of each other. (If you’ve ever taken an Orange…

I’m a Peloton Convert

I hate to admit it, haha, but I’m a full blown Peloton convert. I’ve been getting a LOT of questions regarding the Peloton (from current users and maybe-future-users) so I thought I’d put all my initial thoughts into one blog post. If you’re looking from advice from a spinning-pro, this is not for you. But…

Favorite Jeans

Why is shopping for jeans SO hard? I always feel like I have an idea in my head of how I want jeans to look and feel and getting there can be such a challenge. Thought I’d round up my most worn jeans. These are the same styles and I linked to as similar of…

My Espresso Maker Is 50% Off

I’ve had my espresso maker for just about a year now and, let me tell you, it was worth EVERY penny. I bought it for myself for my birthday last year and hemmed and hawed over whether it was going to be worth it. It’s definitely a lot of money for a kitchen appliance. Even…
