Spring Style – Lead Actress

May 18, 2017

This look transports me to a rainy movie set- waiting between takes for lights, camera, action. It’s easy to feel insignificant among so many background actors and crew bustling about, just another face in the crowd. But then you hear your name being called, “right this way” someone says “we’re ready for you” and you remember how hard you worked to get here. You swipe on one more coat of red lipstick and walk out in front of that camera.  Quiet on…

May 13, 2017

Being the oldest of five, I have a very special first-born connection with my mother, Wendy. We are both so similarly smart and strong willed – it was always easy for us to chat, hang out, fight, make-up, support each other, challenge one another and grow together.  While we’ve had our ups and downs (as all mothers and daughters do) I can honestly say I am in the best place with my mom and am so happy to have her in…

These guides are set up to showcase Instagram-friendly hotspot…

Statement Sleeves With Blue Beetle Blog

April 4, 2017

I was so excited to shoot with a fellow blogger for today’s post! I met Marina from Blue Beetle Blog at Revel during an accessories swap and we exchanged contact information. It’s hard to find other bloggers in the area much less style bloggers, so it’s been so great hanging out with another fashion superfan! Both marina and I are so excited about dramatic sleeves as a trend for Spring. We decided to each style bold sleeves in our own way…

Revel Spring Cleaning Sale Haul

March 31, 2017

I had a great time shopping Revel’s spring cleaning sale a few weekends ago! If you aren’t familiar, Revel is an amazing craft bar located downtown right next to the Madison Children’s Museum. It is one of my FAVORITE places to hang out with my friends, relax and give my creativity a jump start when I am feeling tapped out. You can get a fun drink (they have this rosewater vodka mixer that is the bomb), make a Pinterest-worthy craft from…

Capelet Queen

March 28, 2017

    Time is literally flying away from me this year. My days have been filled with equal parts trying to relax and being so crazy busy I don’t know what to do! I can’t complain too much because most of the busyness has manifested as beautiful opportunities for me to do things that I love! One of these things that I am very excited about is that I have officially joined the z.bella boutique team as a shop stylist! I will be working in…

Being on a set always feel like home to me and…

I Want You to See Me In My Underwear

March 21, 2017

I believe that women and men need to see more representations of what real bodies look like in ALL shapes and sizes in every form of media. There is no “right” or “wrong” body type – yet a consumerist culture clamors to make us feel like shit if we don’t look like what is perceived to be best. Even being “plus-sized” comes with measurement restrictions, height requirements and facial bone structure from Jesus himself if you want to be considered an acceptable plus…
