That ‘back-to-work/back-to-the-grind’ day? I think so. It is for me anyway. It’s also day two of the new year, and week 27 of this wild ride they call pregnancy. I have to admit – the first two trimesters seemed to fly by, and suddenly I feel like things got put into slow motion. Maybe it’s a little bit of anxious anticipation about the trimester…

New Year Giveaway with Coupons.com

Happy New Year friends! Hope your NYE was simply marvelous and ended with a smooch from someone real special. And now here we are – the first day of a brand new year. Full of the promise and possibility that new beginnings always offer. I mentioned in my new year’s day post last year that I’m not one to set a whole bunch of new year’s resolutions – mostly because I like to set goals throughout the year as opposed to just once. I’m also a firm believer in tweaking your goals as necessary, setting new ones when needed, and recommitting yourself as often as necessary. Recommitment – I love that word. I love that concept. Most of my new year’s goals fall into that category – recommitting myself to a few of the goals that I already had and that matter to me most. Furthermore, the addition of a…

The Top G’s of 2013…

Very-Jane-3

I had originally started this post with sappy writing, dripping with sentiment of the nostalgic, reflective kind. Then I thought ‘Save it Willardson – this is a fashion blog.’ ¬†And so it is, and so I’ve done. I’ll warn you that I don’t think that fact will spare these pages from ever hosting my original tender feelings that are of a more serious nature. However, for today, light-heartedness has won the battle. You’re welcome. Seeing as how this IS a fashion blog (fashion? personal style? whatevs.), I thought it might be fun to round up the top-rated outfits on GBO in 2013. These were the ensembs that garnered the highest number of G’s. If you’re new here and have no clue what the deuce GBO stands for, now would be a good time to learn. And if you’re not someone who usually rates the outfits, perhaps you should make that…

Menswear Monday

Banana-Republic-Purple-Sweater-5

Happy Menswear Monday! Hope you had a fabulous weekend. Can we NOT talk about how fast the Christmas vacation is flying by? Woof. I’m doing my best to soak up what’s left of it. I’m not sure how successful I’m being with that, but here’s to trying eh? In other news, Husband and I have been trying to push our comfort zone a little in the colors and patterns department (and by ‘our’ comfort zone I mean his), because life is just too short not to, amiright? Banana Republic had a slew of sweaters on sale in fun, bold colors, so I got husband a handful of them for Christmas. He wasn’t even mad about this purple number, and it seemed like a great match for this handsome navy polka dot button-up. Husband was a little skeptical of the combo at first, but I think it won him over as…

Killer Photographer

Christmas-Pics-A

I wanted to introduce you to an amaze-balls Bay area photographer, because if there’s one thing we all need in our life it’s a great picture-snapper for those important shoots in our lives, amiright? Bonus points if they don’t cost an arm and a leg! Meet Ms. Kirsten Wiemer of KNW Photography. I met Kirsten several months ago when she took our baby announcement pictures and she’s been my go-to gal for pics ever since. She took our Christmas card pictures below and we absolutely loved them. If you live in the Bay area, you definitely need to hire this gal for your next family photo session or other photo shoot. She’s talented, fun to work with, and I can almost guarantee you won’t find a photog with better rates than this girl. Thank you Kirsten for these lovely holiday pics of husband and I! Turns out we love you…
