Every woman wants to feel luxurious and comfortable. It just does not seem that these two words can go together unless you sacrifice your fashion. That is until I found the elegance of Ala von Auersperg. All of her pieces are elegant and versatile. I wear her pieces to the beach (like my trip to the Bahamas here) or to an elegant dinner. You can even layer the pieces to wear for a dressier event. You will love the unique and stunning pieces that are part of the AvA collection
It’s that time of the year we start dreaming of taking a beach vacation, lounging by the pool, or relaxing on the lake. I love summer and everything that it brings. If you’re like me, you’re probably looking to update your summer style. And by that I mean swimsuits. Today, I’m sharing the best swimsuits of 2019. In the boutique at the bottom of the post, I’ve curated a variety of swimsuits, coverups, shoes, bags, and all the other vacation essentials. And keep scrolling for weekend sales.
If I had a dollar for every time someone asked me how I style my hair I could retire a very rich woman. Or how I get big volume in my hair. So today, your wish is my command. I’m going to show you how I style my own hair at home and the exact products I use. Oh, and there are a few tips and tricks involved to styling your hair.
Happy Hump Day! How is your Wednesday so far? The time has finally come to start heading back to work! Texas officially entered Phase 1 of reopening on May 1. With everything going on, work clothes seem like foreign objects. I think we all have to dig them out and dust them off from the depths of our closets. Hopefully everything still fits after #quarantinesnacks. Now is the time to spruce up your work wardrobe just in time for spring and summer. Talbots has so many amazing options to choose from. You will feel excited and ready to show off your new look going back to work with Talbots.
Happy Tuesday, friends! I have some good news for you that will help you get through the week. So you all know that I just love Colleen Rothschild’s products. I have been using them for over four years since I discovered them here, so I am always excited when she releases new products and has a SALE. The Colleen Rothschild FRIENDS & FAMILY SALE is currently under way from 5/12-5/17 and you can get 25% OFF site-wide with code FAM25. It’s a great time to stock up!
Happy Monday. Happy mid-May. Happy week 9 of quarantine life. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and a fantastic Mother’s Day. I loved having the kids over to our house on Sunday for an at-home celebration. It’s so good to celebrate with them and have an actual conversation in person! We spent most of the weekend spring cleaning and exploring restaurant life. I also got my nails done on Friday and I am a new woman!
I’ve kept blogging and my presence on social media never slowed down during the Covid-19 pandemic. I wrote this blog post at the very beginning of the outbreak not knowing what was ahead. March 15 seems like a lifetime ago. I thought it was a good time to share 10 things I learned about myself during quarantine.
Summer is around the corner and while travel is still a bit uncertain, we still need to look chic even if it means laying out by the pool in your own back yard. Warm breezes mean patio cocktails and dinners. I can’t wait to get dressed up and head out! It seems like a foreign concept for a waiter to take my order and serve dinner. This time last year, we had just returned from Aruba. Take me back! If you were booking a beach vacation, where would you go? Let’s talk about Summer Outfit Inspiration.
As you know, I am always looking for ways to change up my skincare routine. Since we have been spending so much time at home, it has been an especially great time to give new products a whirl. Heaven forbid I actually work out or take on a new hobby during this time. Introducing one of my new favorites: Revision Skincare. I learned about these products through my amazing facial experiences at Eleven Wellness (read about my experiences here, here and here). This company offers a variety of products to incorporate into your daily daytime and nighttime routine. The product has definitely changed my skin!
Now is the time to invest in all the loungewear! Even once we start going back to work, it is always good to have plenty of loungewear options. The trick is to find loungewear and sleepwear that are not only comfy, but also cute. My newfound love are Soma Cool Night Pajama Sleepshirts. With summer approaching, there is no better way to stay cool yet cute while lounging at home (or getting a good nights sleep). You could maybe even get away with wearing it for your next date night in… just throwing that idea out there. There are just so many reasons why I love Soma Sleepshirts!
With all this time we have on our hands, why not reorganize your pantry, closets and storage areas? A couple of years ago I did a blog post on pantry organization and it really resonated with my audience. By popular demand, I am sharing it today with a few updates. Please be sure to get a good laugh at the overabundance of A-1 steak sauce. Enjoy!
I love goals! One of those things is being more organized… with my time, my blog and my life. So I decided to start with our home. Let me introduce you to NEAT Method and show you how they transformed my kitchen pantry utilizing items from The Container Store. This pantry organization is so simple yet makes a huge difference!
Happy Monday! How was your weekend? We were really low key and just hung around the house. This glorious weather has us enjoying time by the pool and getting some much needed natural Vitamin D.
Speaking of vitamins, I’ve been taking two Ritual Essential for Women 50+ Multivitamin for the last six months and I truly love them. They are a part of my daily supplement routine and are helping my immune system, heart health, bone support muscle function.
Hallelujah! It’s the first of May and Texas is gently opening back up. Praise Be! I don’t know about you but I am ready to fly the coop. Remember to practice social distancing and wear a mask. May the force be with you!
If you’re anything like me, you probably wear a ton of black and neutrals. They’re easy to wear, make us feel comfortable and are super versatile. I know some people feel like you can’t wear black during the spring and summer but you know how I feel about it (read here). You definitely can! I’m sharing some great black and neutral pieces for spring and summer. Click the image above to shop or keep scrolling for more of my favorites.
I think we can all agree that belts are a timeless accessory. Adding a belt can complete and elevate an entire look. Now, not all belts are created equal. More specifically, designer belts are belts to add to your wardrobe to instantly update your wardrobe. Let’s look at the reasons to purchase and wear these belts. Are they worth the investment?
Only two days left until we are out of shelter in place. Praise be! Although things are opening up, we still can’t go to the nail salon for another few weeks. I wrote about 5 things to do at home during quarantine, and one of those things is an at-home manicure. It is the perfect time to try your hand (literally) at doing your own mani/pedi. Although the experts are irreplaceable, here are some tips to remove your dip and gel nails plus how to give yourself a professional-grade manicure. Well, I don’t know how professional it is…
Springtime is officially here which means spring colors. Wearing bright colors will make you feel happier, more positive, and confident! I especially love PINK. Molly Ringwald is not the only one who can feel pretty in pink, right? Pink is in this spring and now is the time to add it to your wardrobe. Pink brings fun and chic into your wardrobe. Also, be sure to scroll all the way down for a special surprise discount!
Happy MONDAY! I am hoping this is our last week of shelter in place. Fingers crossed that April 30 is it!
It can be really tough to get a good night’s sleep… especially when you are sharing the bed with a partner that sleeps differently than you. We all have different temperatures that we like to sleep in, but it seems impossible to find this perfect blend of comfort for both people. Look no further than Cozy Earth Premium Bamboo Sheets.

Mother’s Day is only three weeks away (May 10) and even if we don’t get to celebrate together, we can still send beautiful gifts. It’s a great time to really reflect and appreciate what your mom has done for you. For those of you who are new here, I lost my mother over a year ago and I got personal about the loss in this post. If you’re still fortunate enough to have your mother in your life, I’ve curated some gift ideas for you in this post. I’ve included low and high-end items for you to choose from that you can ship directly to your mom if you’re not getting to celebrate together. Fingers crossed – I will actually get to celebrate with my children in person. That would be the greatest gift of all!
There’s only so much Netflix and Instagram that we can endure when we’re bored at home. Social media has become a place for discord and grumpy comments. Everyone please take a deep breath. I have comprised a list of five things that I have found to be enjoyable and pass the time while stuck at home. And guess what? They’re all screen-free! You should also check out my tips to survive the homebody lifestyle. Between these activities and tips, you can get through any boredom with ease. I hope!
Am I the only one dreaming of the beach? I know many of us had our spring break trips cancelled, but hopefully we will be able to travel again soon. I have hope that this summer will bring the return of beaches, vacations and a bit of normalcy. I found a brand that is absolutely perfect for any beach trip. Cabana Life is my absolute go-to for all things beach related. From dresses to rash guards to swimsuit, they have it all! Not only do they offer product for women, but also for men, boys and girls. A one stop beach shop for the whole family. SPECIAL OFFER: Get 20% OFF sitewide with code TANYAFOSTER20. And there is a GIVEAWAY too!
Happy Tuesday. How are you holding up? We are officially halfway through our fifth week of quarantine, which means most of us are starting to run out of product. I have found my go-to essentials that are a must-have to get through these weeks. A plus is that all of these items you can order online! Stay safe, but stay stocked up on your home and beauty essentials. I know I am. While I have always done a lot of my shopping online, I’ve reached an all-time high during quarantine. Check out my online shopping during shelter in place and see what comes directly to my door.
