But First, Coffee Shirt

I've had a HUGE, unexpected, response to the "But First, Coffee," shirt that I made for myself. It was the first time I had ever made a shirt using my Silhouette Machine, and I was so excited, that I had to shout it from the roof tops on my social media. I never had any intentions of making them for others, until: To my surprise, I started receiving messages: Jessica! I love that shirt that you made! Can I buy one from you? This shirt is sooo me. Where can I get it? So on and so on. So my wheels got to...

2nd – Stitch Fix Review May 2015

If you saw my first Stitch Fix Review May 2015, you must have seen my disappointment in the fix. I'm not one to complain, so I didn't. I mean... I do Stitch Fix, for the fun of it! So when I didn't keep everything, {for the first time in a LOOONG time} I didn't really think anything of it! I mean, I still totally have a crush on Stitch Fix. But what was so cool about their customer service??? Well if you saw my post on my Facebook page, about how they totally redeemed themselves, when it came to my disappointment...

Why I Stopped Buying Clothes from the Clearance Rack

A while back I did a post on "Clothing Stores for Moms,"  I must admit... I've changed a lot since then, when it comes to my clothes shopping escapades. Back then, I was just trying to find that bargain. Which, what would end up happening would be that I would grab about 5 shirts that had a cute pattern, had an orange clearance tag on them...take them home, and yep... you guessed it. Never wore them.   I can't tell you how many times I have cleaned out my closet, and put clothing in a bag for charity that still had the price...

Stitch Fix Review April 2015

Oh baby. I received that sweet little package in the mail from Stitch Fix today, and I rushed right down to my office to share it with you. Plus... I've shared some photos this time, because I took advantage of my friend Brandy being here, so she could snap some pics for you. I can tell that my stylist, Carrie, kept in mind the type of "look," that I like, and even left me a sweet note with ideas of how to wear the goodies in the box, and how I can pair some of the last items that she...

Casual Night Out Make-Up

Remember when I hit the "jackpot," and found someone to do my hair and makeup, flawlessly? If not, I shared the before and after with you a while back here. I contacted Jennifer at Flawless Makeup again recently, and asked if I could come visit. Granted, I love her as a friend... but I had an ulterior motive too. ;) I felt like Cinderella the day she gave me a total makeover, but when I woke up the next morning to start another day, it was back to my ragged dress and messy hair. {Minus scrubbing any floors.} ----> I had...

Open the Stitch Fix Box with Me, Stitch Fix Review #10

It's here.  My 10th Stitch Fix. On my last review, I heard you all preferred the video reviews, rather than the photo reviews. So that meant something HORRIBLE. I came to the realization that you all are going to see me at my WORST. No more just taking snapshots of the goodies I got in my box that week... ya'll are going to have to look at me. ======> Let's just get this out of the way: I'm lucky to change out of my pj's if I'm staying at home with the kids that day.

You know I've been a lover of Stitch Fix for a while now. If you haven't heard of Stitch Fix yet, you should REALLY REALLY, check out my other blog posts on my reviews. I'll be honest, I've received a fix since this video review...and I was a little disappointed, but to my own fault, I realized I changed my profile again, that allowed my stylist to drift away from my style choices. Every once in a while I feel a little frisky and creative, and mix it up. I HAVE TO stop doing that. I end up wasting a good fix. :-| But...
