Fashion Friday: Holiday Party Outfit

My holiday party at work is 12/17 at a super new swanky hotel my company owns.  When I got the invite 2 days ago the what-am-I-gonna'-wear panic began.  I still haven't lost the weight I would like to, and I don't have much in my current size (seriously having to type that is way too painful).    I've decided that with these 5 key elements I could make it work plus I've used each piece seperately … [Read more...]

Christy Designs Over The Door Organizers

I can wholeheartedly admit that I have a ton of items that have no home to stay in.  I try to find a drawer, a box, something, anything so I can find things easily, but often times when I need them I'm scouring the house for those items.  I found Christy Designs over the door organizers and was very intrigued.  I've had the shoe organizers but I could never close the closet door.

I have to admit I'm a instant gratification girl.  I shop a lot and spend more money then I should.  The HaveTheTalkNow contest really hit home because R & I talk about teaching the kids about money and saving.  In addition, we are focusing a lot on donating and helping others.   Of the six cards given as prompts I chose the above because R & I have talked over and over again about … [Read more...]

DIY Necklace Holder

I admit it my dresser is a mess disaster (see below).  It has come to the point where it is DRIVING ME CRAZY.  I don't have a lot of storage in my room/house.  It is 100 years old after all.  Plus it doesn't help that our room is the size of small match book.  I know you are saying stop complaining already. First I wanted to start with organizing my jewelry.  If you look at the picture … [Read more...]
