When the bride and groom include their beloved pup in their big day, 
they have to be a key player in the illustration, naturally.

Yes Way Rose

It's been dubbed "summer water" and I couldn't be a bigger fan of both the term
and the item. I'm talking about rose, and though it's only 1:45pm here, I could use
a glass. Has anyone else's week been complete chaos? 

Pass the wine, please.

Fruit Punch

The temperature dropped below 90 yesterday and everyone freaked out. 
I must remind you people sitting in the Starbuck's drive-thru, it is still, in fact, 
summer. Fall is a short distance away, but for now, let's enjoy the bright colors, 
fully ripened fruit, and days where the sun doesn't set until 8pm.

Spark Joy

Have you heard about The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up

Surely you have, and if you haven't I urge you to pick up a copy of it and it's sequel, Spark Joy.
Your life will be changed, I promise. While I like to think my closet is quite organized, in the midst of implementing the KonMarie method, I came across a handful of items I had completely forgotten about. Buy it. Read it. And prepare to be amazed. The folding methods alone are enough to make you jump for joy. My drawers have never looked so pretty when I open them. My tanks are finally lined up so I can see all of them at a glance (which made me realize I have about 10 black and 10 white tanks - half of them went to Goodwill). 

I hope your life is changed and your life is filled with joy again! 

This is me carefully examining a dress with the tags on it. I've never worn it and after trying it on, I realized it's entirely too short. It went to the Goodwill pile as well. The pink Uggs were a toss while the cowboy boots were a keep.

How to Work From Home

Working from home has it's perks, but it can also be tough getting motivated on
those early Monday mornings. With no one to report to, it's up to you to get the job done!
I've discovered that a chic but clean workspace does the trick. Keep it simple so you're
not easily distracted by cute (but semi-pointless) decorative objects. Everything on my
desk serves a purpose which helps keep the clutter to a minimum.

While this isn't an exact representation of my desk situation, it has elements of my actual

I also saw this on Damsel in Dior's Snapchat (of all places): even if you're working from
home, throw on a pair of heels for a conference call. It makes you feel more
official, I promise.
