It’s hard to believe that I’m writing a recap on my live TV appearance! If you told me 10 years ago I would do this, I probably would have said “that’d never happen!”…though it does seem like something I would try to do 😉 Good Day Marketplace on Fox News (Springfield, IL chapter) had me on their show to talk about fashion! We did two segments. One was on LBD styling and one was on Wardrobe Essentials. This  ...

If you missed day 1, check it out here! Day 2 Day 2 started off with a blizzard!

Some people may think of “tired”, “gross”, and “stressful” when they think of airports…I always think of excitement. Because if I’m in an airport that means I’m going somewhere! When I was planning my trip to Paris, Barcelona, and Rome, I was talking to a friend about what I would wear to the airport. She asked, “Why can’t you just wear what you’re wearing now?” I  ...
