Leopard Blouse


Leopard Top c/o || Skinny Jeans || Blush & Glitter Loafers || Sunglasses || Rebecca Minkoff Bag || Earrings || Circle Hexagon Ring c/o || 

Hello friends! Leopard has been one of my long time favorite prints as far back as I can remember. Even Ava is quite a fan of the print and likes to point it out every time we see it. This lightweight blouse combines two details I adore. A bow tie at the neck and of course the leopard print. The top feels so comfortable with a looser fit. It looks best when tucked into either a pair of jeans or a skirt. I particularly enjoy pairing leopard with colors of the season. It really does act as a neutral!

Favorite Beauty Products Updated


Sailor Cleansing Oil || No Poreblem Primer c/o || Jafra Beauty Highlighter Stick c/o || 


No Poreblem Primer c/o || Jafra Beauty Highlighter Stick c/o ||

Happy Easter Monday! Today I’m highlighting some of my favorite beauty products I’ve been using over the past couple of months. Almost all of these products are ones I tried on my own, only four of them being sent to me to try out, but I ended up loving them so much and kept them as a part of my daily routine. Many of these started out as products I wanted to try based on what they promised to do and how yummy or beautiful they smelled. What can I say, how something smells is a big part of it! I can tell you every single one of these products delivered on their promises and make either my morning, nighttime, or relaxing bath time much more enjoyable.

Speaking of the bath, I’m obsessed with all of Dr. Teals products for the bath. The pink Himalayan being my favorite scent. I keep multiples of these on hand at all times. Before my bath or shower, I’ll use Sailors Face Oil to take off my makeup and cleanse my skin. It’s so relaxing to use and works very well leaving my skin clean without the tightness soap can give. You can also add a few drops of the oil to your favorite moisturizer. I also love their deep blue face moisturizer, which smells like fruity pebbles! It’s lightweight and doesn’t leave any greasy residue behind. Of course, the nautical theme is what caught my eye to begin with. Their products use ingredients found in the ocean, which I love. I also use the Pixi face mask during my bath once or twice a week. These masks are AMAZING. My skin literally glows after using these. I’m beyond impressed. Another product that has me under its spell is Dr. Botanicals Moroccan Rose Oil. This smells like rose candy. I use four drops for my face and neck both morning and night. It’s been an game changer giving my skin the right amount of moisturize and actually gives me this beautiful glow. I’ve already ordered my second bottle!

Soap And Glory and Love Beauty And Planet both have amazing body products for in the bath/shower and after you get out. I love using the Murmuru Butter And Rose Body Lotion at night. This smells sooo yummy and gives me skin a little shimmer. It’s so beautiful. In the morning I love using Paradise Glossed Body Oil, which has a yummy fruity smell reminding me of paradise. It goes on light and leaves my skin glowing. The retro print also gives me the biggest thrill! 

As far as hair goes, there’s a few new favorites here that I’ve incorporated into my routine and also Ava’s. She loves the Cake products because they smell like vanilla icing and strawberry lemonade. She’s a scent girl too! I found both the hairspray and wave maker at Rite Aid. The hairspray and hair oil from Kristin Ess work exceptionally well. The hairspray locks my hair into place and also gives it this subtle shine. Now, this does not have a delicious smell or anything, it just WORKS. The hair serum I like because you can use it anywhere on both wet and dry hair. It does not make my hair look oily rather giving it moisture on the ends and making them look healthy. The shampoo and conditioner from Love Beauty And Plant leave my hair feeling so lightweight and bouncy. There’s not other way to describe it, my hair literally feels so lightweight. They both smell amazing too. I still use my MoroccanOil hair products as well, usually rotating between these. The MoroccanOil Oil Treatment cannot be beat. I’ve been using it for quite a while now and can not find anything that comes close to it.

I look forward to using these products every single day. Let me know if you try any of them and what you think!

Good morning, friends! Every time I see a tweed dress, I instantly think of Jackie Kennedy. She wore quite a bit of tweed throughout her life, typically a jacket and skirt set, and always looked beyond stylish in them. There’s no denying her grace, beauty, and charm, which always have and still continue to inspire me to this day. This tweed dress from a Chicwish conjures up retro vibes and soft romantic notions with it’s blush hue, mid-length sleeves, and a sheer self-tie bowknot. Even the sleeves have sheer ruffles along with cuffs. A charming frock that will add elegance to your spring wardrobe!

All Things Hair


All Things Hair Box c/o || Dove Dry Shampoo || Queen Bee Salt Infused Texture Spray || Love Beauty And Planet Shampoo || Love Beauty And Planet Conditioner || Similar Dress Here And Here ||

Happy Friday, friends! Who out there loves to have a good hair day? *Raises hand* I know for sure that I do! A good hair day always makes me feel as if I can conquer any task and take on the world. The editors at All Things Hair hand picked this specific hair style box of products based on my hair type and lifestyle. I couldn’t be happier with these selections! The Love Beauty And Planet shampoo and conditioner not only smell amazing, but they make my hair feel silky soft and smooth. I tend to wash my hair every other day and use a dry shampoo in between. This one from Dove soaks up any next day oil and leaves my hair with some nice volume and freshness. Plus, it has a beautiful floral scent. My go-to hair product is always a sea salt spray. I spray this in after towel drying to enhance my natural waves and let my hair air dry overnight. I’ve used various ones in the past, most notably this one which has been my favorite for years. The queen beach salt infused texture spray gave my hair some richness, while still remaining soft. It’s almost a cross between a sea salt spray and a texturizer, but without the crunchiness! 

All Things Hair has a newsletter series, tips, tutorials, hair inspiration, and favorite hair products all on their site. It’s quite a treat for anyone who wants to give their hair some good care or looking to try something fun and different!

Blush Ruffle Dress


Blush Ruffle Dress c/o || Picnic Bag || Similar Sandals || Pink and Blue Co. Bracelet c/o || Circle Hexagon Ring c/o || Gold Coin Necklace c/o || Ava’s Dress || Ava’s Rose Gold Sandals ||

Good morning, everyone! We recently had a gorgeous day with temperatures reaching 72 degrees, which was quite literally a heat wave. It brought everyone out to the parks, lakes, sidewalks, stores, and farms. Basically, if you could be outside then you were on that day. After getting some work done, Ava and I headed out for a walk and then a little picnic by our favorite lake. It was not only relaxing, but incredibly refreshing and invigorating.

We dressed in items that also had the same refreshing feeling with chic comfort in mind. My blush dress has beautiful flutter sleeves with buttons down the front and a tie to cinch at the waist. Also, and most importantly, pockets! I swoon every time a dress has pockets. Ava’s dress reminds me so much of spring with it’s pretty pastel stripes. I love these dresses for her since they’re easy and comfortable. She can run around and play easily while still feeling “dressed up.” Her jelly sandals are also a spring and summer staple for her. This year she picked out a rose gold shade. Last year, she got a hot pink version that she literally wore the entire summer and into fall. She loved them that much lol!

Polka Dot Pose

A very happy Tuesday to you and welcome to April! It feels so good to finally say hello to April. There are so many wonderful things to look forward to including the warmer weather, flowers blooming, and of course the Easter season. Ava is particularly excited for the bunny to be arriving soon. It’s still a bit cool up my way with some warm days mixed up, but seeing the sun shine is what really makes me smile. It’s an instant mood booster and so refreshing to see after the long gloomy winter days. We’re slowly getting there!

This polka dot dress, with pockets!, is also quite the instant mood booster in my opinion. Polka dots not only remind me of the fabulous retro days, but they're incredibly fun and flirty! Along with the pockets, this dress also features a tie around the waist and a darling collar at the neck. It has a nice weight to it as well. I wore this outfit to church on Sunday where Ava and I were greeters. It was so much fun to welcome everyone in for the service.

Healthy Living // Meidcal Medium

Raspberry and Lime Chai Pudding Parfait  


Coconut Tortilla Chips and Salsa  (This recipe I made up myself)

Tomatoes, Cilantro, Olive Oil, Lime Juice, Onions, Salt and Pepper.


Fresh Celery Juice  16oz on an empty stomach (wait 1/2 hour to eat)


Black Bean Humus


Pumpkin Pie Pancakes  


Honey Berries  


 Wild Blueberry Pancakes


Good morning dear friends and happy Monday! I’ve always been one to watch what I eat, though never eliminating anything from my diet. Eating healthy has always been important to me, but I would never “diet” or exclude food, only keeping the “bad” food in moderation. I recently came across The Medical Medium’s Instagram account through Selma Blair, who was recently diagnosed with MS, the illness my mom bravely fought for 16 years. She was showcasing her morning celery juice, which is the cornerstone of the Medical Medium’s healthy lifestyle. Celery juice is taking the world by storm! Read more about it here.

Always curious about eating the best I can, I spent a few hours reading through Anthony’s blog posts, Instagram posts, and testimony from readers of his books all over the the world. There’s a wealth of information, and I highly encourage you to read through some of it, but these are the key points:

  • No dairy (I drink Almond Milk)

  • No eggs

  • No corn

  • No canola oil

  • No soy

  • No gluten

Eating only fresh foods from the earth, and either limiting or completely eliminating processed foods, will have a tremendous impact on your health and overall well being. Eating this way should eliminate the heavy metals, toxins, parasites, and virus’s, living within the body. The goal is to cleanse and heal the liver, thyroid, and gut of these. I do use some processed foods, though they all follow the guidelines above and are organic like the Coconut Tortilla Chips I have with the salsa. Wegman’s has their Marketplace section, which is amazing for finding healthy snacks and foods. Below are some of the snacks I found at Wegmans. The Hippeas are from Target.


I started with the celery juice, 16oz of fresh celery juice each morning on a empty stomach and then waiting half of an hour before eating. Read more about how celery juice heals HERE. It’s all about their mineral salts reducing inflammation and neurotoxins! I feel extremely energized, calm, and alert after starting about 3 weeks ago. I do not need to have coffee anymore either! Overall, after starting to eat cleaner, I have less digestive issues (bloating, burping,) and feel more alive than ever. I was also starting to experience some neuropathy type issues along with muscle soreness in my legs, which has also disappeared as well. My brother jokingly calls this my dirt diet, though he’s not completely incorrect, haha.


The above photos are just some of the recipes I’ve tried (and loved) over the last few weeks. I also eat a ton of fruit and vegetables throughout the day. After my celery juice, I have a bowl of the berries with honey and a green tea. I then eat an apple and a banana followed by a small bowl of raspberries and a cutie (orange). The raspberries and tangerine “help prevent the calcium loss that can occur as the thyroid virus forces the body to use its calcium stores to wall off the virus in nodules and cysts, both in the thyroid itself and throughout the body. Help prevent osteoporosis.” At lunchtime, I have coconut water with a salad I made up of organic spinach, hearts of romaine lettuce, broccoli sprouts, cilantro, cucumber slices, nut cheese (Parmela Creamery found at Wegmans), and fajita chicken (I make a batch of this a head of time and save for my salads throughout the week.) I’ll also make cucumber juice to have along with some more fruit to snack on (cantaloupe, watermelon, carrots, zucchini spears, kale chips (2tbs eevo tossed with some fresh kale, salt and pepper, bake for 10 mins) kiwis, grapes, strawberries). I’ll also snack on some baby carrots and the black bean hummus or I’ll make guacamole or the fresh salsa. Dinner is really a toss up and different everyday, but my morning breakfast, lunch, and snacks are pretty much the same everyday. The pancakes for dinner is always fun or zucchini pasta, salmon and veggies (mushrooms, brussel sprouts, red peppers), seasoned chicken, or even a soup. Sometimes I’ll make the parfait for dinner and it’s soooo filling!

Anothy also has kids recipes available, thank goodness! Kids are notoriously picky eaters, especially with health food, but I’ve always been very lucky with Ava. She eats a lot of fruit and some vegetables throughout the day anyway. Shes also a big fan of the pancakes, parfait, and the healthy snacks we found at Wegmans and Target. Kid approved!

Tassel Tweed & A Bow


Tweed Dress c/o || Blush Mules || Similar Blush Gold Studded Bag || Pink & Blue Co. Bracelet c/o || 

Happy Friday, friends! There’s something quite endearing and charming about a bow. Whether on a blouse, dress, bag, tied into your hair, or even the transitional bow-tie, it never loses its allure. This tassel tweed dress alone is beyond lovely, and perfect for the transitional spring weather I might add, but adding in the bowknot broach is the quintessential cherry on top. It elevates the dress to a higher level giving it that special touch. The best part? Since the bow is a broach, you can remove it and wear it with other items!

Happy First Day Of Spring


Floral Dress c/o || Yellow Wedge Espadrilles || Wicker Bag || Pink Bow Ribbon Straw Hat || Sunglasses ||  Flower Earrings ||

Happy first day of spring, everyone!! My little chick and I have been anxiously waiting for this day and are so happy that it has finally arrived. A few days ago we got a taste of spring with highs in the 70s, blue skies, and an abundance of sunshine. We were outside almost the entire day. It was absolutely wonderful! We went to the park to walk and go to the playground followed by a trip to Hillside for some ice cream and photos. After that, we looked for signs of spring on another trip followed by a sunset drive. It was quite the magical day. Ava and I wanted to look our spring best with florals and colors to match the new season. She even put her own outfit together!

Good morning and happy Tuesday! I recently came across a jewelry company, J.Bubs, and fell in love with all of their pieces. Their jewelry has a modern glam feel to it with affordable prices and on trend pieces. Their dainty items, 3 of which I’m wearing above, are my favorite. The hexagon ring is 14k gold plated and is perfect for layering or wearing alone. The leopard kite earrings have a faux fur feel (very soft to touch) and look incredibly chic. The rose coin necklace is 18k gold plated and oh so lovely to wear. Coin necklaces are all the rage right now and with good reason. I chose the “rose” coin since it reminds me of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, one of my favorite Disney movies. Use the code amanda25 for 25% off of your J.Bubs order.

I’ve been starting to store away my winter outterwear and looking for a coat for the cooler spring days. This tweed one has a fresh feel with a light lining to keep me warm until we hit those 70 degree days. It also features a stand up collar and a fit and flare silhouette.

There’s nothing dreamier to me than a gorgeous sunset with soft beautiful light filtering through. Add some floral blooms and you have one enchanting evening.

The sunshine absolutely enlivened my senses and brought a sense of happiness along with the promise of spring soon to come. Along with the weather, this dress put the biggest smile on my face. It’s pretty pleats and darling bow  neck tie add to its feminine beauty. Not to mention the stunning print! Right after shooting these photos, I went to a local church dinner with my dad and received so many lovely compliments on the dress. It was a wonderful evening filled with good food, good company, and an ensemble that has so much springtime charm.
