I apologize for my lack of posts, as I type this I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we won’t lose power thanks to Hurricane Isaac. The point of this post is to highlight things you should acquire so you can be prepared for anything. It doesn’t have to be a major hurricane, even blizzards or a late-summer thunderstorm can knock out power and create chaos in your everyday life. So here are some things you should keep handy just in case!

I’ve always loved Kate Spade. Everything from the bags to the clothing seems to speak to me in a very grown up yet fun way. However, my budget doesn’t afford me an entire closet full of their wondrous designs, but that doesn’t mean I can’t own a few things from them! My current obsession are their cute iPhone cases. I saw one of my friends with them and had to know more. After looking online at the designs, I’m dying for one!

So apparently a post ran on IFB about blogging and the “quality” of blogs for people outside the normal standards of beauty in the fashion sphere of the Internet (that can be read: here). Then it blew up in the comments section which resulted in a white flag post (that can be read: here). I’m a little late to the party because quite frankly I don’t have time to engage in an e-fight with a bunch of over processed, catty, vain idiots. But I want to throw in my two cents about “body image” because people like to throw that word around without much thought.

With the campaign trail heating up since Romney announced his running mate, everyone turned their attention to the Paul Ryan. However, his wife Janna Ryan stole the show in her $39 Kohl’s dress that was cute, comfy and extremely stylish. She stole the show and now people want to know more about her fashion choices (well played Mrs. Ryan)!

The Olympics have come to a close, and I wanted to highlight something that’s making me laugh this morning. Apparently the Internet went wild with a picture of McKayla on the podium receiving her silver medal. A Tumblr was made and now the whole country is in on the joke including the Fab Five themselves.

I was stunned to see a headline about Twitter users complaining about Gabby Douglas’ hair! The girl just made history and brought home another gold medal but people are focused on her hair?! I was more worried about how she would do on her floor routine and if the uneven bars were going to jeopardize her chances of beating the Russians. It never occurred to me that a simple but tough bun would cause so much commotion on the internet.

If you have been watching the Olympics, you’re bound to notice a lot of tattoos floating around of the signature rings. I decided all of this fancy artwork deserved a blog of its own, especially since it identifies a lot of the Olympic veterans in the London games. Normally I’m not crazy about tattoos, especially on women but being an Olympic athlete gives you a pass.

The Olympics are here! I watched the opening ceremonies and was pretty impressed with how it was carried out. I also thought the Queen with James Bond was really awesome. After all, despite being a fictional character, James Bond really screams British to the entire world. I will be blogging a little bit about the games for the next 2 weeks, so I wanted to cover some of the fashion choices in this post.

I don’t know about all of you, but I LOVE Disney! So I wanted to share some pins from a new pin board I created on Pinterest. If you have any Disney pins, be sure to follow me and let’s share them! I’m always looking for new ideas on trips to the happiest place on earth.

During the summer, it is rather difficult for me to put on a pair of jeans especially when it’s close to 100 degrees outside. However, shorts aren’t always an appropriate option and sometimes skirts or dresses are too formal or not suitable for the occasion. Cropped jeans have been a life saver so far this summer, especially when I go bowling or out for drinks. So I compiled a few of my favorite cropped jeans that can fit any budget.
