Happy Mother’s Day!

To all the women out there that have had children, are raising kids (maybe not your own), or took in that kid down the street, lost their children too soon, or are the cool aunt – you all deserve recognition for all that you do half tired, half showered, half the pay, with double the stress. Have a very happy Mother’s Day!  💐

I got my Mom and I new Anne Klein bags.

 

Stay beautiful! xo

Topical Tuesday – Thinking of Spring Cleaning?

I know this time of year we are busy wrapping up the school year, trying our best to get our lawns in shape, and working hard to clean out all the old junk in our homes.  We are used to giving away old clothes, and out dated electronics in some cases too for all new upgrades.  What about in our pantry?  American’s over-consume a lot of things, but our waste of food seems to be the worst.  I invite you to look through your pantry especially and donate anything that has not yet expired that you know you or your family will not consume before its expiration date.  There are many food banks that desperately need items to help in your community.  There are many families that can not afford to put not only a health meal on the table, but enough that everyone gets enough to eat.  Many children go to bed starving, even in some middle class neighborhoods.

I’m so glad this is being printed in a major magazine as Sports Illustrated.  I plan on buying the magazine as a keepsake.  I’m not concerned that she’s not being featured by SI because they could have rejected the ad.  They could have told the company that she is not “attractive” and that she “does not fit their standards” or something similar that a lot of magazines already say when presented with similar material.  The presence of “no” and “you are not good enough” is strong in this industry already – but this time they said yes. 😀

Ashley Graham looks fantastic and is wearing a bikini.  We need more models like her on magazine covers, advertisements, TV, film, and so on.  Beauty comes in many more forms than what is shoved down our throats.  I hope this is the first of many changes!

End of Summer?

We are approaching the end of Summer, so I’m getting the most out of my maxi dresses before it gets too cool. I love the color and fit of this dress. I could wear it every day. It’s from Target and was under $35. You can not beat that!
I paired it with simple makeup and hair.
