HOW TO: create a morning routine

HOW TO: create a morning routine

For the past few months, I’ve been so terrible at getting up and tackling the day.  I generally get a good sleep but I definitely have been staying up way too late and perhaps that’s made me a bit too sloth like in the mornings.  Not to mention I get the most amazing cuddles if I wait to be woken up by my real-life, walking and talking, three year old alarm.  However, she loves waking up to me moving about the house and I love getting my makeup done without little miss grabbing everything they can reach.

DRESS FOR YOU: feeling pretty

DRESS FOR YOU: feeling pretty

Much to my mother’s dismay, I’ve never been a dress girl.  In fact, you’ll almost always find me in anything but.  Nevertheless, this one has won me over with it’s simplicity – I love the ruffle detail in the sleeves but what I love most is the fact I can chuck it on and go about my business.
