The gift of time with Timex

In my opinion, watches are a great gift if the person who is receiving wears watches regularly. Timex has watches that are classic, versatile and at a great price so you don’t end up breaking the bank.

Styling separates, Part 1

Matching sets are a great purchase since they’re so versatile. I purchased a matching set [you can find that post here] over the summer, and I’ve already styled the pieces separately in multiple ways.

Below is a variation of how I have styled the shorts with a trending off the shoulder top and unique accessories.

A pair of statement earrings is something that should definitely be a part of your accessory wardrobe. You can dress up a casual outfit or basic piece with them, or add interest to an already quirky and stylish look.

Buckeye Lifestyle July issue magazine launch

A girl I used to work with reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in modeling for her friends July issue of the magazine she was about to launch. After working at the Rowe fashion show I felt a little more comfortable modeling [and I can’t pass up a chance to play dress up] so I said yes.

We spent the day taking photos in Schiller Park and I was able to wear this super gorgeous Ulla Johnson dress. Once the magazine went to print, the owner held a launch party at a new bar that opened up in Columbus – Standard Hall. I was able to get a peek of the brand new bar before it opened and strut my stuff down a runway in the dress I wore for the mag. The event was such a blast and the other models were the sweetest.

Black, white and a pop of color

A bright accessory can elevate any monochromatic or black and white look. I purchased this ALDO bag for a few reasons:

  1. I needed a go-to bright bag to be added to my wardrobe
  2. It was the perfect size – not too big or small – because I rarely carry much anyways
  3. It is a crossbody bag but works perfect as a clutch just by tucking the strap in
  4. The shade of yellow goes with just about everything in my closet
  5. It was at a great price!


I finished off the look with a statement bangle to add contrast to the long black sleeve and voila! For the office, an office party, date night, or an event, you’ll be sure to get many compliments on this look!
