Rainy Days

Yesterday was a very rainy in Minneapolis and I spent the majority of the day trying to keep our laundry room from flooding. In between changing and spinning out towels, I played around with instagram. I've been on it forever, but never really use it. It's actually pretty fun! For those of you that don't [...]

Parisian Chic At Ann Taylor

I have to tell you, I am dying over Ann Taylor's fall 2012 collection. When I saw the photos I was absolutely gobsmacked! Where did this come from? Have I been missing out on fabulous pieces? I admit, I have not been in Ann Taylor for years. It's always felt very business lady to me, [...]

Modern Day Ice Skates

Great boots under $100

Boots, boots, boots....you cannot escape them this time of year. And there are some amazing ones out there! All the ladies (and girls) in my family were sporting awesome boots over the weekend, and you can't open a magazine without seeing celebs rockin them as well. Cameron Diaz looking beautiful. Many people think you can't [...]

Boot-a-licious

I am obsessed with these Fluevog Mirella boots! I first saw them in a scooter magazine and I fell in love. I tried to sweet talk the hubby into getting them for me (wouldn't I look so cute on the scooter wearing these) but he wasn't having it. He believes bike boots should actually be [...]
