Back To School


Ok, it's that time again, girlfriend... As a Teacher & a Mom back to school shopping brings upon very mixed emotions for me. It means that the end of the season that we wait for all school year is nearing an end. It also means New Beginnings- New teachers/colleagues/friends- New Classes- New Books- AND of course...NEW CLOTHES!
So, let's talk about the kids first. They always Need EVERYTHING! These little suckers keep growing- like every year! I have a few "go to's" that say consistent. Like the backpack, water bottle, a fall coat/vest, sneakers and name tags- because MY kid loses everything! These pieces are a great start to the school year madness. I know that if I start with these staples I will be ok to add more along the way and Char will have everything she needs.
Now let's discuss price because I have not received a "real" paycheck since June 23rd. If it does not include a promo code or the word SALE it is NOT going in this Mama's cart. The good news is that many of the retailers are on to this and it is one time of year when they are, kind of, on our side...Those "Back to School Bargains" are usually pretty good deals. Now the the thing is that you don't NEED everything Right NOW- like a winter coat...You DON"T need that to start school!

New Year Refresh

I t’s that time of year when the holidays are over our holiday Decor is put away, hopefully! Your home is clean & quiet & let’s face it- we’re stuck in the house right now due various reasons. So, it’s a great time to reevaluate and refresh. I find that if I don’t go through my things, refresh and get rid of things that I don’t need or use; think those fancy underwear that you bought that were so uncomfortable that you never wore them!  That being said- Let’s get rid of the clutter and keep the things that we feel our best in! If we learned anything in 2020 it was to live our best lives. I like to take the end of January/beginning of February as a time to go through my things. I start with the most important; my “intimates”… Meaning bras underwear pajamas and of course my robe! This week at Smooth Styling with Corinne we are going to explore all of these! We will talk about underwear/panties (I hate that word)... bras/bralettes/sports bras, pajamas- I will Share with you my fav

Making a list, checking it twice...

Do you have a holiday shopping list? Santa should not be the only one making a list & checking it twice!  Getting & staying  organized around the holidays is a skill all to its own. As we know most Moms have what we call"Holiday Anxiety." Don't get me wrong- I know you LOVE the holidays! The decorating as a family, baking together, visiting Santa, getting the Christmas tree & decorating, drinking hot chocolate together- the whole shebang... BUT we have A LOT to do & most of that "To Do" is behind the scenes. It is the prepping, the shopping, the wrapping, the organizing that the kids, & often others, do not see.  Well, I do not need one more thing to be stressed about. I want to enjoy my hot chocolate & be able to reorganize the ornaments on the Christmas tree in peace :) and I would be LOST without my Holiday Gift Spreadsheet. I am not a spreadsheet kind of girl on the daily. I will admit that lists are my jam & I could not live with
