Jon Hart Design Luggage

Whilst navigating the airport on a recent trip sans kids, Mr. T and I finally acknowledged we need to invest in new luggage. Honestly, I love bags so much that it’s been a challenge for me over the years to commit to one brand that could take me from weekenders to wheels up. After asking around, I received many great suggestions but none seemed to be quite what I was looking for. A few prerequisites in my quest: high quality, durability,…

6 Tips to Networking {without having to attend awkward happy hours}

Minted gold detail business cards

I remember in my twenties I thought I wasn’t “getting out there” enough. I would see events all the time deemed as must-attend to expand your network and reach career goals. I found myself at a few of these, awkwardly trying to make conversation with people I often never spoke with again. In my thirties, I’ve had some realizations when it comes to networking and they seem to be paying off. 6 Tips to Networking that Don’t Include a Happy…

Breckenridge 2017

Breckenridge ski resort

We had an amazing weekend in Breckenridge, Colorado. Breck is one of my very favorite places on the planet and we were with some of my very favorite people {and it happen to be my birthday weekend}! I’ve been going to this very same location since I was little and never tire of this mountain or town. It’s so fun to bring new people to experience its majestic qualities. I always say I’m sadder to leave the mountains than the…

Splurge vs. Steal: Where to buy Spring’s Best Trends

Early Spring in Atlanta

Glitter shoes are hot right now and anywhere selling them at a reasonable price can’t seem to keep them in stock! I came so close to purchasing this pair at over $220, but then found this glitter heel at under $60 and about did a back flip. The bottom sandal is under $60 and stocks are running low! Here’s a slew of glittery goodness at varying price-points… Here are a few other things I’ve either purchased for Spring 2017 or…

Chooka boots winner + scenes from our weekend

Gold foil graphic

We had a fun weekend with our Momsie {my grandmother} and Auntie Jeanine visiting from Houston, Texas. All three boys wrapped up their basketball seasons so there was lots of B-ball. My boys fired up for the Atlanta Falcons going to the Superbowl 51 … such a heartbreaking loss for our home team. We watched Connor’s last JV game Thursday then went for some bowling fun. My game was a lil off, but watching all these cuties play was fun…
