The way I aimlessly wander through the aisles of Target is a lot like how I spend my least gratifying days of motherhood. For better or for worse, I lose sight of my purpose and by afternoon settle on just doing better tomorrow.  Maybe there is a list but there is no plan and I already know that I’ll be in a battle with myself for presence.

As I set my purse in my cart and walk through the doors, I am resolved.  I’m just going to fill my cart with what I need.  I’m not going to be distracted.

Starting My Day Dressed For Adventure with Toad&Co.

December 14, 2017

Living in San Diego we have come to expect sunny skies temperate weather year round.  During the holiday season when most people in the country are pulling out down jackets and mittens; in San Diego we are trying to embrace the typically chilly festivities while we stand around in shirts and flip-flops.  With the unpredictability in our local weather (and my schedule) I always struggle with what to put on each day and start my day dressed for adventure.

That cozy knot sweater that felt just right for a chilly 7:30 am walk to school is going to feel torturous when I’m picking the kids up in the 80 degree afternoon sunshine.  The head to toe magazine worthy look is great for a work meeting but will never get me out the door for that quick hike I dream about squeezing in before sunset.

The Louis Vuitton Date Code Bible

November 16, 2017

When you are shopping for a pre-owned Louis Vuitton, one of the first things you’ll want to look for in the listing is the date code.  Unlike other designer brands like Chanel or Gucci, Louis Vuitton is unique in that each bag is marked with specific information about exactly where and when it was produced.Louis Vuitton-date-code-bible

This information is an essential first step in authenticating a Louis Vuitton.  While oftentimes very confusing to research and understand, date codes are actually very simple to understand when you have all the information in one complete source.  That’s why I’ve created and shared my Louis Vuitton Date Code Bible. Anyone who is trying to determine if their Louis Vuitton is real, or just wanted to know where and when their Louis Vuitton was made – should absolutely bookmark this all-encompassing Louis Vuitton date code guide.

CAPRI SUN Our Favorite Lunchbox Staple is Better than Ever

I find myself always falling victim to thinking I know exactly what the next stage of parenting will look and feel like, then I get completely surprised but how much I didn’t know or wasn’t prepared for.  In the transition to ‘mom of elementary schooler’ I was totally unprepared for packing lunches! I don’t have a 9-5 where I need to pack food for myself so my lunch packing game was definitely under par.  I quickly did what any mom would do and turned to a friend whose kids are a few years older than mine and tried to shorten my learning curve.

My girlfriend filled my virtual shopping cart with all the essentials to survive five days a week of lunch packing.  The right size lunch bag to fit a bento box and a drink, the right size coolers to let it still close and fit a drink.  When she grabbed a CAPRI SUN from her cupboard to show me that unlike juice boxes, it does fit; I was filled with all kinds of nostalgia.  I can’t remember a youth soccer game where we didn’t celebrate an under 6’s win with an orange slice and CAPRI SUN.

Where are my outfit repeaters of the world?  I am a self-diagnosed outfit repeater.  My shopping cycle consists of buying something, loving it hard and wanting to wear it all the time. Then just as quickly as I fell in love, I fall out of love and retire the piece towards the back half of my closet.  This cycle is tiring, frustrating, guilt filled and always leaves me disappointing. I was in desperate need of a shopping solution and love designer clothes, but I don’t have the budget for them.  I love the joy and excitement of having something new that I’m really excited to wear out that day.

And then, I found it. Rent The Runway Unlimited.
