The Room Revamp






















duvet (Pottery Barn Teen c/o), sheets (Pottery Barn Teen ON SALE c/o), shams (Pottery Barn Teen c/o), pillow (Pottery Barn Teen c/o), horse head (Pottery Barn c/o), lamp (Pottery Barn Teen c/o), headphones (Pottery Barn Teen c/o), rug (Pottery Barn Teen c/o), desktop accessories (Adele)

My daughter Chase is quite the collector.  She loves unique and sentimental things that showcase her personality be it her artwork, a Horse representing Kentucky, her fave books, or a jar full of Floridian starfish.  But she's also NOT girly---kiddo loves her tomboy status.   Hence the Black & White theme we went with from Pottery Barn Teen when I promised her a room revamp for Christmas.  And from the adorable Artwork to the Personalized PillowsPB Teen was the perfect fit for my girl.  She absolutely adores her new abode and I love that it's still fit for a kid, but allows her to feel just a tad more grown up.  And look, I'll be the first to admit I am NOT an interior decorator, but  everything from PB Teen is so dang cute (why HELLO!) it kinda takes the guesswork out for us interior challenged folk!  Hope you all enjoy the revamp---I know miss Chaser did!  Make it a good one, gang!

Get Fit








leggings (Nordstrom), shirt (nordstrom), shoes (Nike love THESE & THESE), shades (Ray Ban), ring (Anna Beck)

I'd venture to guess January is one of the more physically fit months if there was such a thing.  Everyone has made their resolutions which more often than not include healthier choices--such as getting out there and breaking a sweat.  May sound weird, but I find if I feel more pulled together and better about myself prior to starting my workout, I'll push myself and workout harder (I know that sounds ridiculous, but it's true).  Easiest way to feel pulled togehter?  Get some good gear!  And no one does good gear like Nordstrom.  In particular, I'm loving the variety with the Nike selection.  The Printed Sneaks, LEGGINGS , and Vintage Hoodies are all serving up a healthy dose of fun, comfort, and function.  I'm particular when it comes to my workout leggings...if I'm fidgeting around with them, forget it---love love these Leggings for that exact reason.  Yes the print is super fun, but the fact they stay put is even better and are crazy comfy to boot!  If I may suggest a little tip, if struggling to get your resolutions in, def snag some new Workout Gear from Norstrom.  Have a sneaking suspicion it will get you in motion and get you on the right path to a healthier 2015!
