The dress is gorgeous.

Something about this is all wrong.
Is she under dressed, maybe?

The dress is rather odd though.


JENNA DEWAN TATUM

I love her hair and makeup.
And I am in love with this dress.


SHAILENE WOODLEY
I feel like this dress would be perfect if it weren't cut so low.


QUEEN LATIFAH
This is a great color on her.
She looks stunning.


REESE WITHERSPOON
Eh, I'm disappointed.


ANGELINA JOLIE
She's another one of my favorites.

Style Icon || Emma Watson


Emma Watson has come a long way since she was cast as Hermione Granger in Harry Potter at age 9. Earlier this year, she graduated from Brown University with a degree in English Literature. Most recently, she was appointed as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador. Emma helped launch the HeForShe campaign, which calls for men to advocate for gender equality. She has also become a standout on the red carpet with daring and original style. Every time I see her, I become more and more impressed with her fashion choices.

Here are a few of my favorite looks she's worn in recent years.



























All of her looks are feminine, fashion forward and age appropriate.

And she's just so darn pretty too!

Smells Like Teen Spirit || 80s + 90s Fragrances


I recently saw a Buzzfeed article making its way around Facebook referencing some old school fragrances. It got me thinking about some of the perfumes and scents that were popular during my younger days. So, who remembers any of these?


MALIBU MUSK
I never wore this, but had several friends who did.
To this day, if I even think about the smell, I want to barf.


LOVE'S BABY SOFT
I wore this in elementary school.
I thought I smelled so fresh and so clean.


COOL WATER
I loved that they had this for men and women.
I used to love the smell, especially on guys.


VICTORIA'S SECRET PEAR GLACE
I've never been big on pear fragrances.


ELECTRIC YOUTH
I wore this and thought the bottle was so cool!


EXCLAMATION
This is another one that made my nose unhappy. Stinky!


CK ONE
I wore this in high school.
I loved the smell, but mostly used it to cover up the stench of cigarette smoke.


CLINIQUE HAPPY
This was my signature scent for a year or two.
I blame Clinique for giving it out in their bonus bags.


POISON DIOR
A friend of mine wore this in 7th grade.
I fell in love with the sweet scent and promptly begged my mom for a bottle.


TOMMY GIRL
This was extremely popular back in the day, but I never wore Tommy Girl.


CURVE
I don't recall wearing this or even what it smells like.
I just remember seeing it everywhere in stores.


ELIZABETH ARDEN SUNFLOWERS
This was another one of my signature scents.
I've smelled it recently. What was I thinking?


GAP GRASS
I never wore any of the Gap fragrances.


BATH & BODY WORKS CUCUMBER MELON
Who didn't love this stuff?
It smelled so good!


Which ones did you wear?

Halloween, Football + Cheer Update


It's only November 12. That totally means we can still talk about Halloween, right? The kiddos were Elsa from Frozen and Ghostface from Scream. The company I work for has a costume contest every year. This year, the ladies in my department decided to go with a Charlie's Angels theme. I think we look pretty darn cute if I do say so myself.








In recent weeks, our family of four has been insanely busy. Between full-time jobs, cheerleading and football practices, and lots of games, we haven't had much free time. I'm behind on tv shows. I'm behind on laundry, and my house definitely isn't prepped for company. Don't anyone stop by announced. Thankfully, this sports season has come to an end. It was Dain's second year of football and Rory's first year of cheer. Both kids had an absolute blast. My husband helped coach. And, next year, I will be heading up the cheer program for our town. I am so excited!

Here are a few pics from this season.













Go Tigers!
