Summer Sundress

July 12, 2013



Nothing says Summer like a sundress, right guys? Can you believe we’re already half-way through? Ugggggg- it secretly makes me feel sick and squirmy inside. Where does the time go? I frequently find myself creeped out by how relentlessly fleeting it is. Alas, no sense in bemoaning an inevitable fate, right? Gotta just live it up while you still got the time yo! YOLO! (woof – remind me never to say YOLO again. And if you don’t know what that means, this hilarious video via the internets will enlighten you.)

What fun things are YOU doing to make the most of the rest of your summer?

(should we make a ‘rest of summer’ resolution list? I don’t even think that’s the worst idea…)

Oh, Hello Fab!

July 10, 2013



That terrible moment when you’re finishing your blog post at 5 am from the couch in your living room where you fell asleep late last night – and then suddenly it registers that you probs shouldn’t even go back to sleep cuz you got an hour and a half commute ahead of you, a meeting that starts at 8 am, and a bunch of work junk that you need to get done before that meeting starts. WOOF! That’s what we call an unequivocally woof moment right there.

In other news, I bet it would be nice to know who ended up winning the Olive Lane Shop giveaway that happened a million years ago, eh? Well go see for yourself right HERE! And speaking of giveaways – yesterday’s giveaway ends tomorrow! It’s a quickie, so don’t miss your chance to enter, cuz the prize is a rull rull good one.

I couldn’t get enough of this adorable skirt from Hello Fab. Isn’t it killer? If you haven’t seen their shop, you’re missing out. It’s where I got this top as well – yummy stuff peeps.

What do you think? GBO?

NIVEA ‘Indulgence’ Giveaway! {closed}

July 9, 2013



And the Winner is…

Natalie Hinckley!

Congrats Natalie! And thanks to all who entered! X-to-the-O!


Ok guys – raise your hand if you’re ever THIS person: the gal or guy running around like a chicken with their head cut off, chasing down an endless to-do list without ever really feeling like you’ve made a dent in it. And then if you’re ME, add the following: a perpetually messy room, stacks of unopened mail, infrequent showers (cuz they take SO much time, don’t they?), and more speeding tickets than I’ll admit to due to driving like a bat out of hell any time I get behind the wheel so I can make it to places on time.

Ok now that I’ve completely incriminated myself and told you way more than you wanted to know, allow me to get to the point: in life’s rat race, sometimes you need to just slow down and PAMPER YOURSELF! Right? And that’s what today’s Giveaway is all about. NIVEA challenged ME and is now challenging all of YOU to ‘indulge yourself’ –  toss your old rushed routine and take a little time to pamper yourself, de-stress, and really savor the moment. Over the last two weeks, I made sure to fit in some ‘indulge’ time, and I gotta tell you – I realized that not only was it nice, it was something I really needed. Having NIVEA’s delicious Touch of Renewal lathering body scrub and Touch of Smoothness body wash, a delicious scented candle and the yummiest, coziest, most delightful bathrobe in all the land to use didn’t hurt either.

Remember how one lucky reader is going to win ALL OF THAT? Mmmmyep! So get your enter on! And do it quickly – this one ends at midnight on Thursday. Thursday peeps! Winner announced on the blog on Friday. Open to US residents only. Good luck!

Have a ‘Triton the Mermaid King Tuesday’.

Menswear Monday & Giveaway Winners

July 8, 2013

Welcome back urrrrybody! I hope you had the most wonderful Fourth of July weekend! I also hope you’re managing to keep knives away from wrists on this ‘back-to-the-grind-MONDAY’. The first day back to regular life after a holiday is always a little rough, isn’t it? Tell me I’m not the only one with that puke-double-puke feeling? All of that being said – I’m just glad I have a job to go back to – let’s be surrrious. Right guys? I mean, right? Bueller? Bueller?

What the heck did you do for the Fourth? Husband and I ended up at the beach, then at a movie, then at a BBQ. It was a jam-packed yet surprisingly relaxing and unequivocally stellar day. Woot!

Today’s Menswear Monday agenda: a Pinterest round up! I’ve been thinking about summer clothes for boys, and I got admit that I get stumped in this department at times. Husband gravitates toward a very simple t-shirt and long shorts in the summer, and I can’t say I blame him. We’re thinking of ways to spice it up while still staying cool. You can follow me on Pinterest HERE and see more of my Menswear Monday inspired pins HERE.

Ohhhhhh… One more thing: you’re probs about to kill me for not announcing giveaway winners yet, right? Well to avoid any attacks, let me just go ahead and ANNOUNCE THEM! For the Winner of the Korchmar Bag, visit HERE. For the winners (there were three of them!) of the TimberBeast Bow Ties, visit HERE. All giveaway winners are selected randomly using a and Rafflecopter. Thanks to all who entered!

SO, tell me Guys: What do YOU wear in the summer to keep things fresh while avoiding sweating your face off?


Is it just me, or do we feel like these ^ shorts are perhaps a smidgen too short?

Oh John Krasinksi. To me you will always be Jim Halpert.

 Guys – would you do a ‘mutch’ (men’s clutch)? Husband would die dead before he’d carry one of them thangs around.


K, but whatever you do – don’t EVER do that ^. Boys in bare midriffs= Woof-Triple-Woof alert. End of story.

Tell me your thoughts! What are YOU wearing this summer boys? 

And then have a ‘Maybe this week will go by real quickly’ Monday!
