Oh Boy!!!!!

Posted on April 15th, by Melanie

As a mother of a baby boy, I am constantly in search for cute things to dress my little guy in. I go to Target (my home away from home) hoping to find some inexpensive cute things. I always find things for myself there, so I WANT to be able to find things for my baby as well! I enviously meander through the girls department. SO many cute things! Darling leggings with little tops to match, the cutest sun dresses, and a gazillion little tops and shorts. Then I get to the boys “corner”, which is literally about 4 racks compared to the 50 in girls. I sheepishly pick up the awful onesies with cheesy sayings, and I flip through the “Pooh and Friends” rack-which is really only appropriate for a JC Penney Photo Shoot. It’s truly depressing…

This forces me to do some major research both online and in-stores. I have a few go-to’s where I know I will always find cute things.

Put away your sweatpants and break out your skinny jeans!

Posted on April 13th, by Melanie

As much as I would like the skinny jean/long top/sandals look to go away, I am afraid to say that it is here to stay for spring and summer. No matter where you go, that is the look that stores are offering. The good news is, your bargain-hunting gal found the PERFECT PAIR OF SKINNY JEANS!

As a denim buyer, I was afforded the opportunity to try many different brands of premium denim. Through this process I learned that price is not necessarily definitive of how the jean is going to fit. Shopping for denim is a very LONG and somewhat tedious process. It may take a couple trips to different stores to find the fit that is perfect for you!

I happened to stumble upon these perfect jeans on a recent trip to Nordstrom. As a former employee of Nordstrom, I always feel at home there. I love Brass Plum, their Juniors department.… Continue Reading

My Husband and I were lying in bed after a LONG Easter Sunday and I started thinking…I need to start doing something creative, something that gives me joy and something that I can share with other Mom’s who feel the same way I do!  Out of all this brainstorming, and surfing the net comes my blog.  

I am a stay-at-home mom, and I love what I do, but I miss the independence of my career and the rewards that career brought.  Not that seeing your baby roll over or hearing their laugh for the first time isn’t rewarding, it’s just that I feel I want something MORE than that. something for ME~ is that wrong? 
So, begins my journey in sharing with the world all the things I am passionate about.  I am not quite sure how this blog will be organized, but I am sure that I will share with you all the things I love, things that make my life easier and things I feel are special and unique.… Continue Reading
