Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas – Origami Owl

Some things never change.  If you wash your car it’s probably going to rain the next day.  You paint your nails then all of a sudden you have to use the bathroom.  And every year, on the same day, Valentine’s Day makes its appearance.  But for some reason, some people wait until the day before and end up paying a ridiculous amount of money for roses or something crappy because it was the only thing available.

Don’t be that person that wait until the last minute with a crappy gift that has zero sentimental value to it.  Going to share some great Valentine’s Day gift ideas from Origami Owl that will be sure to blow the socks right off your significant other!

Madison Reed, I would like for you to meet Sybil!

Hey my peeps!  OMG can you all believe that I did not cut Sybil at all last year.  This means I won a bet with my friend Racheal and she now owes me drinks…winning!  Last year I did a self-imposed challenge that I would go one full year without cutting my hair.  Did you read about the challenge?

This time last year I was rocking a fierce brush cut.  My head was freezing but I was fierce!  LOL  December of 2013 was when I decided to give Sybil a fresh start and I loved it!

Is Winter Making Your Hands Look Like You’ve Been Playing in Flour?


Seriously, Old Man Winter has been doing a number on my skin lately.  I live in Tennessee which most of you would think that means “Hey she lives in the south, what is she belly aching about?”  Yeah, that’s what I thought too when I moved here from Washington, D.C.

Now as one who loves sharing all of my crazy nail art and at-home manis, having dry, crusty nails is something I don’t want and it’s sure as heck something none of you want to see.  For me my skin regimen changes drastically once the temps start to drop below 45-50.  During this time the heat is on full blast and that just means forced hot air is sucking up every bit of moisture that I might have had to begin with.  Now if you’re fortunate enough to live in a climate where you’ll pretty much get all 4 seasons in a week, you have to pay even more attention to how you deal with your skin.  Julep was awesome enough to send me this awesome infographic for tips on how to winterize your nails: [Read more…]

Nashville Write the Vision Board Party – Manifest Your Goals & Dreams

Once again I have the pleasure of co-hosting a Write The Vision Board Party right here in Nashville, TN! Vision boards can be a powerful (and fun) tool to help you manifest your goals so they become more REAL and tangible.  A few years ago my mom bought me The Secret and I really started to make a conscious decision to stop with the negative self-talk and not think things like “I’m broke” or “I wish could that”.  I started to think about what I wanted and in return not bring so much negativity around me.
