A beautiful mind

      Radiating beauty starts from within, meaning it’s time to take a look at your thoughts. What is a beautiful thought? It is one that allows you to live out and embrace your authentic self. A beautiful thought doesn’t paint a false picture of perfection; instead, it is filled with truth and grace. […]

Beautiful you [inside and out]>Beautiful things

I love beautiful things, and I feel great around them. When I think of relationships and family, my heart is filled, and my smile is brightened. Picturesque vacation getaways remind me of the beauty of our world, including the golden sand, blue-green water and crashing waves of an ocean that makes me feel so small. […]

What makes you beautiful!

      “You are beautiful!” This has been one of the best compliments I’ve received lately. There is something about that word that will instantly brighten your day — especially when the word is about more than your physical appearance. When my sweet Soror mentioned that I was beautiful, she went on to describe […]

Hello, new year! Goodbye, fear.

How was your 2016?  Mine was spent enjoying family and friends and doing a moderate amount of soul searching.  My year had its share of success but also saw a moderate amount of stress, chaos and change. Some chaos was awesome.  I’ve been getting better at my photography hobby, being more creative, getting my blog […]

The Sparkle of Christmas

Imagine your cousins, aunts and uncles all living within the same zip code.  Think of the memories that were created in one special place.  This was my reality – my dad had eight sisters and two brothers.  I grew up in a huge family, and it was so much fun!   Regardless of how many […]

Adventures In Las Vegas

Adventures In Las Vegas – Haute Grey Fox   When Mr. HGF announced that he wanted to go to Las Vegas, let’s just say I was less than enthusiastic.  I had never visited Las Vegas before, but I envisioned “Sin City” as a place with smoke filled casinos packed with tourist trying to strike it […]

Fashionista With A Budget

People often believe the misconception that it’s expensive to be fashionable. This really is not always the case. Of course you can go out and spend a lot of money on clothes and accessories. But you can also find pieces that you love at prices that you love as well! I went shopping recently and […]

This Beautiful Life

“The longer I live the more beautiful life becomes.” – Frank Loyd Wright I think this quote perfectly summed up my thoughts this weekend. Have you ever been in a place where you are just suddenly struck by the beauty and wonderfulness of life? I experienced such a moment this weekend. I hiked 7 miles […]

Transitioning Your Wardrobe From Summer To Fall

Fall is my favorite season! A season full of sweaters and pumpkins and bonfires! But it’s also a great season for fashion! Right now we’re right on the cusp of moving from summer to fall fashion. The release of the pumpkin spice latte is the universal sign that it’s time to start a transition from […]

In Living Color

Amazing what you find just around the corner. We often travel far away to unwind, explore beautiful places and refresh.  What I have discovered is sometimes we take for granted those beautiful places in our very own back yard.  My son and I were taking a Sunday drive and we stumbled on this beautiful gazebo […]
