Athletic Wear I Love to Wear

I don't know about you, but nothing motivates me to workout more then great athletic wear. I get even more excited when I find full outfits that I can not only workout in, but also continue a few hours after into my day. I mean, I'm not big on wearing yoga pants all day (I can't tell you the last time I did that), but a few errands post workout in stylish athletic ensemble is OK in my book. To be honest, I've also worn this outfit to not workout at all, but as I traveled with my husband into Chicago for a night downtown. No one wants to wear there "going out clothes" in a long car ride. ;)

Subscription Service Review: New Beauty Test Tube

I have been getting New Beauty Test Tube deliveries since 2011 (yes, 2011!). For the first three years I paid for the service, and since then this wonderful subscription has been gifted to me. I have to say, if it wasn't a gift, I would still be buying it! This truly is a service that I look forward too and use every product that is sent. I can't tell you how many times I have loved said products so much that I have ended up purchasing them. Isn't that the point? Finding new products you end up loving.

Crop Tops & Overalls

OK, lets start by pointing out the obvious. I am a 38 year old mother-of-two, and I am wearing two items that can be looked at as not age appropriate. Now, let me say the most important thing in this post, I don't give a f*** who thinks this is age appropriate for me to be wearing, I love this look! ;) No, really, I love both items and I think it doesn't matter your age as long as you style the items in a tasteful and fun way. Having said that, I do try to dress appropriate for my age, but what I think that definition is, not what I'm told that definition is. Does that make sense? I follow my own rules! And I hope you can say the same when it comes to how you dress. Have fun with it ladies, fashion should be fun!

New Exhibits at Legoland Chicago

The older our kids get the more important it is to spend quality time with them outside of our day-to-day interactions. Don't get me wrong, I love the chats we have after I pick them up from school everyday, getting caught up on life as we sit and eat dinner together nightly, and our special time before we say goodnight. However, sometimes they talk more about what's really going on in their heads when we mix up the routine. When Legoland invited us to see two new exhibits my kids were so excited! Since we were invited to preview the new attractions on a Friday night, we left a little bit early and went out to dinner first (see above photo).
