Those who follow me on Instagram, know I was in a bit of a panic a few weeks ago when I decided that, after a long hiatus, I would complete the second portion of my degree to become a practicing lawyer. Continue reading

HOW TO: dress for an event

I love dressing up for special occasions and events. I love the entire process. From the search for the perfect outfit, the getting dolled up, to being out wearing something new. So I thought it would make a fun post to talk about the process I go through in determining what I wear for an event or a special occasion. Continue reading
