Versatile Fashion Pt. 1: 1 Skirt 5 Ways

1 skirt 5 ways: If you are anything like me, versatile pieces take up a large part of your wardrobe! I need my clothes to take me through each season if possible, so I can mix and match to create new looks all the time! I tend to hold onto my clothes for years so I really look for items that can work hard for me and that flatter my petite 5’2 figure.

When I found this rust colored corduroy skirt with buttons, I knew I had to have it! There is just something about this color that calls my name! This length of skirt really helps me feel as tall as possible and this one especially feels sophisticated, fun, and is SO versatile! I could have done 10, 15, 25 looks or MORE, honestly! I am really looking forward to styling this skirt a TON this fall! I’m not a celebrity, so there’s no “one and done” around here when it comes to fashion! 😉 When I love something, I wear it like crazy!

SO, here it is: 1 skirt, 5 ways.

NIGHT: DATE NIGHT//GIRLS NIGHT…… Full disclosure, I put this together in a pinch after scrapping my first idea and while it isn’t my favorite (due to me not thinking it through enough, and forgetting that I was going to slide the skirt over to make the buttons be on the side (SUPER CUTE by the way), I love how easy it pairs with black and of course I am obsessed with my earrings and bracelet from one of my very favorite local small businesses, BOXX JEWELRY. I can envision SO many date night variations with this skirt and intend to try them out for sure!

Smart Coffee – A Review

Coffee. Smart Coffee. Magic Coffee. I mean, if you’re a coffee drinker, these don’t seem like silly words to describe coffee. DUH, right?!!?! It could literally be called Grass Coffee, and I’d likely give it a try! I mean….. COFFEE!!!! Who can resist?! 😉

I know, I know…… chill out with the obsessive coffee love, lady!
In all seriousness though, 😉 my dear friend Rebecca approached me a while ago (sorry girl!) and asked if I’d like to try this new coffee product that promises a host of really exciting things! I just couldn’t turn down trying something that has been causing such a big buzz!

Let me start with some of the facts from revital U:

What’s in revital U Coffee? Our smart coffee was created with you in mind. We’ve combined an amazing taste with hand picked ingredients, to give you only the best. Feel energized after only one cup!

Select 100% Arabica Coffee: This premium imported base, gives our instant coffee a great taste.

L-Theanine:  Most commonly found in green tea, this ingredient helps keep your mood up!

Octodrine: An ingredient that boosts and supports the body’s various metabolic functions.

Chromium Polynicotinate: This mineral regulates your blood sugar, while also controlling your energy levels and weight.

SO……. the BIGGEST motivators for me were the mood boosting, improved mental focus, and increased energy! I know coffee does a bit of that already, but also found out after a little bit of research, that people were really seeing some incredible changes by just having one cup of this coffee a day! It was worth a try!

Talk about a boost! It really worked! A bit of extra energy, and almost a pep in my step! I was able to focus in on some small organizational tasks around the house that I had been avoiding…. (blah!) but managed to do them out of WANT TO, not even HAVE TO! It was really cool! As far as weight loss, for me that’s hard to pinpoint. I follow a pretty healthy diet and have for the last couple of years (no dairy, no gluten! *Save for the random moments each month when the weekend donut run is just toooooooo yummy to pass up, and the pizza smells entirely too delicious!) I also spend a good amount of time each week at the gym!

I WILL say though, that my friend Rebecca is experiencing the weight loss results personally and through her friends and customers! I’ve seen what this product is doing for people and it’s so cool!

Let’s talk flavor….. SO, there are actual recipes out there to add your tiny scoop of revital U to! And I’ve read that even the small scoop mixed into hot water (like instant coffee….) tastes pretty great on its’ own! Here are some ways that folks are using it: hot chocolate, shakes, smoothies, in their oatmeal, and even mixed into yogurt! The website has these customer recipes which I think is really neat! For me, I add a scoop of revital U to my coffee mug, add my one packet of Stevia, pour my hot coffee in, then add my favorite almond milk creamer! YUM! Simple is always BEST for me….. especially in the mornings 😉

Cost….. $39.99 per tub/1 month supply on auto ship which can be adjusted and canceled after two months if needed. $49.99 retail per tub/1 month supply. I know any kind of MLM, or network marketing can scare people off….. and I’ve been there. I’ve also bought into a few of these companies when I’ve loved the brand, and product too much NOT to! Revital U is not scary! Their system is simple, fuss free, and you don’t have to pay an arm and a leg for the product! At $39.99, you are paying $1.33 a day for your coffee. Where are my Starbucks people??? I don’t know about you guys, but my SBux grande vanilla latte is $3.85 plus an extra $ .60 with almond milk…. so dumb. And beyond JUST coffee, THIS coffee is adding more than just a caffeine buzz to your day! You could have extra energy, lose some weight, experience a more focused day…… and just feel GOOD!
Extra cool part… you can get a pack of 3 samples first if you want to try before you get a tub!
———-> HERE is where you can grab your pack of 3 samples for $4.87 (just the cost of shipping.)

THIS is my beautiful friend Rebecca <3

PLEASE tell her that The Family of 3 sent you!! And COME BACK and let me know what you think!!!!!

Galentine’s Day with American Greetings

Galentine’s Day……
I’ll admit it, Galentine’s Day which is celebrated on February 13th, hasn’t always meant very much to me until this year. It’s amazing how connected we become to those we surround ourselves with once we truly find OURSELVES!! I won’t make this too long and sappy, (because I’m saving that for another blog post 😉 ) but I will say that when you find your tribe, your girls, your squad, or whatever you call them….. embrace them, support them, encourage them, love them, and fan those flames and watch those relationships grow!

American Greetings gave me such a wonderful opportunity this year, to really highlight what “Galentine’s Day” means to me and for that I am so thankful! I had already scheduled a day date with a very dear gal pal and decided to enlist her help in showing how special these cards really are! And because of American Greetings‘ generosity, I’ll be adding a couple of their adorable cards to my Galentine’s Giveaway that I am announcing tomorrow!!

How gorgeous is my pal Meg @littleblondewandering ???? And her new home is absolutely breathtaking!! <3

For me: Galentine’s Day is about celebrating your girls and what they mean to you. It doesn’t have to be big and spendy, you don’t have to throw a party or do a fancy dinner out….. just a card to tell them how much you care, or how much they make you laugh, or how needed they are in your life!

Lifestyle – Breakfast with Sis Podcast

I am going to call this one of my life highlights. A blip of time that shined for me and felt really special. I was a guest on a podcast. A podcast called ‘Breakfast with Sis’. Two of my favorite people run this fun podcast, and it was such an honor to be on with them! We started the morning with a photography session to capture this adorable father/daughter duo for promotional purposes and it was so much fun! Here is the first sneak peek!!!

.

Once we finished the photo session, we headed back in to Chick-fil-A (have I mentioned their intense love for the Chick?) and had our breakfast before recording the podcast. It was truly, SO much fun, and I would love for you to check it out when you can! It’s a perfect listen for a workout, drive to work, or anytime you can spare about 50 minutes 😉 I think I may have the ‘on air’ bug, because I really, REALLY want to do it again!
Breakfast with Sis – episode 31 with @Thefamilyof3

After the podcast, we all drove over to Alli K Designs newest Dallas wall(s) mural in Uptown! Here are some pictures from our trip over!

Alli K Design is such an incredible artist and it has been a whirlwind few years for her! Watching her grow this business and see her success has been incredibly fun! You should follow along, because who doesn’t love florals?! 😉
