Fave Finds Under $150 at the Nordstrom Sale

Ah, yes. The Nordstrom Half Annual Sale. Where hard earned money goes to be spent on things you don't need, but for some reason just have to have. Luckily I'm getting a little better at not blowing all my cash so quickly. While shopping the site, I was definitely...

Calming Down Before Breaking Down

When life gets you down, it's so easy to get sucked into your emotions. It's easy to panic, to retreat from friendships and family, to lose your cool and lash out and those around you. It's easy to get angry and blame it on your feelings later. But it also totally...

For the Love of All That is Marble

Excuse me if I'm a little late on this, but I'm in LOVE with the marble trend going on right now. At first I couldn't get behind it - marble is so cold! But the more I saw it the more I loved it (Stockholm Syndrome, anyone?). Marble went from cold and uninviting to...
