MY LIFE. WITH A SPRINKLE OF SUGAR.

 HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! THE HOLIDAY'S ARE OFFICIALLY UPON US AND I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER! THEY BRING A CERTAIN FEELING WITH THEM THAT'S NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE TO RECREATE ANY OTHER TIME OF YEAR. LOOKING BACK ON THIS PAST YEAR, I REALIZE JUST HOW MUCH I HAVE TO BE THANKFUL FOR. I FIGURE WHAT A BETTER TIME THAN TODAY TO SHARE JUST A FEW EXTRA SPECIAL THINGS THAT COME TO MIND! 
I'M GRATEFUL TO HAVE A THRIVING, SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS WHERE PEOPLE ACTUALLY PAY ME TO HELP THEM LOOK AND FEEL MORE BEAUTIFUL. I MEAN REALLY… SOMETIMES I FEEL I SHOULDN'T EVEN LABEL THAT AS A "JOB", IT'S WAY TO MUCH FUN TO BE CONSIDERED WORK! 
THIS YEAR I HAVE BECOME CLOSER THAN EVER BEFORE WITH MY WONDERFUL HUSBAND, FAMILY AND FRIENDS. EACH RELATIONSHIP IS UNIQUE AND SPECIAL TO ME IN THEIR OWN WAY, BUT COLLECTIVELY ALL BRING MUCH NEEDED PERSPECTIVE, SUPPORT, GROWTH AND LOVE INTO MY LIFE ON A DAILY BASIS. 
I'M GRATEFUL FOR THE CREATION AND LAUNCH OF "NO REASON NEEDED". IT'S BEEN A MUCH NEEDED CREATIVE OUTLET FOR MY MIND. I LOVE BEING ABLE TO SHARE MY THOUGHTS ON FASHION, BEAUTY, AND LIFE WITH ALL OF YOU ON A REGULAR BASIS! SO THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU WHO CHECK IN AND FOLLOW ALONG IN MY JOURNEY THROUGH LIFE! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

MELLOW YELLOW...

FALL 2014 WAS ONE FOR THE BOOKS. IT'S BEEN YEARS SINCE WE'VE HAD A TRUE AUTMN SEASON LAST AS LONG AS THIS ONE DID. I'M SO HAPPY I CAPTURED THE BEAUTIFUL FALL LEAVES AND THEIR VIBRANT COLORS BEFORE THEY'RE BLOWN AWAY BY THESE OVERNIGHT, SUDDENLY FREEZING TEMPERATURES UTAH'S BEEN EXPERIENCING. BUT HEY.. WE NEEDED A LITTLE WINDCHILL TO GET US PREPPED FOR THE UPCOMING HOLIDAY'S RIGHT?!  THIS RAG AND BONE CROSSBODY I'M WEARING BELOW IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE RECENT PURCHASES THAT I'M SURE I'LL BE ENJOYING FOR YEARS TO COME. IT HAD ME FROM HELLO WITH IT'S SIMPLISTIC SILVER HARDWARE, AND 100 % LEATHER BODY, SURE TO ONLY AGE WITH PERFECTION!

JUST DO IT.

I DECIDED TO MAKE LIKE THE KARDASHIANS AND SEE WHAT IT'D BE BE LIKE TO WORK OUT WITH MAKEUP ON. JUST KIDDING. NOT REALLY. BUT TECHNICALLY THIS IS A PHOTO SHOOT, SO YEA - I'M WEARING MAKEUP. AND I ACTUALLY REALLY LOVE THEIR SHOW…ANYWAY!
 BACK ON TRACK- WORKING OUT! OR THE LACK THEREOF FOR ME…UGH. WHY.IS.IT.SO.HARD ?!?! YOU KNOW WHATS REALLY EASY FOR ME? BUYING CUTE WORKOUT CLOTHES. NOW THAT'S EASY. ALSO, RUNNING AROUND TOWN IN THEM ALL DAY WITH THE FULLEST OF INTENTS TO MAKE IT TO THE GYM. IT'S FUNNY HOW QUICKLY THESE SAME WORKOUT CLOTHES DOUBLE AS THE COMFIEST OF SWEATS, PERFECTLY SUITED FOR THE COUCH AND CUDDLING UP TO CASEY. SHIT!!! 
BUT I'M NOT GIVING UP. I LOVE A GOOD GOAL, AND EARNING A HEALTHY BODY THAT I'M PROUD OF IS SOMETHING IV'E DREAMED OF FOR YEARS. SO I'M BACK ON THE WAGON AND TRYING A NEW APPROACH. IV'E ACCEPTED THERE'S NO FAD DIET OR QUICK FIX THAT WILL OFFER ME THE LASTING RESULTS I WANT TO SEE . AT THE END OF THE DAY IT BOILS DOWN TO CONSISTENCY. DAY IN AND DAY OUT FILLED WITH LOTS OF HARD WORK, AND WILLINGNESS TO MAKE A SACRIFICE. ABANDONING MY OLD HABITS THAT SO KINDLY BRING ME COMFORT & TEMPORARY HAPPINESS AND TRADING THEM IN FOR NEW ONES THAT WILL BRING ME ONE STEP CLOSER TO THE LIFE I ENVISION FOR MYSELF AND THAT I KNOW I DESERVE. SO HERE IT GOES! PRAY FOR ME.
