This 50 Non-Candy Easter Basket Items post did well back in April so I thought I'd re-visit the concept for Halloween.  These days everyone seems to have some sort of restriction - gluten-free, allergies or whatever reason they may have for not eating candy.  And honestly, we don't have any restrictions but my boys get so much candy in their … [Read more...]

For the second week in a row, I'm featuring J. Jill clothes in Fashion Friday.  It just so happened that I'm doing two separate campaigns with them and they fell within a week!  Which was all sorts of fun because I got to style myself not once, but twice in some of their new fall looks.  So you get to hear about it again but I have some new pieces … [Read more...]

Can you guys imagine coming home from the beach with no sand in your bag?  It seems like something pretty impossible, right?  I know that we head to the beach and I'm finding grains of sand inside of things that didn't even go to the beach that day for weeks on end.
