One-of-a-Kind Pieces & MONDAY MATCH

I'm beyond excited to finally have a few one-of-a-kind pieces I've designed & created available for sale.

Currently, there are five dresses in the store, but I'll be adding more in the future.

They are all affordable-- ranging from only $45-$70.

The "Pretty as Lace" Dress you see here is one of my favorites. I think the two-tie to the halter adds a very unique touch to the dress.

So, visit the store & head over to the dress category to see even more.


Today is also the start of a brand new week, which means we get to kick it off with MONDAY MATCH.

Miranda Kerr, famous for being a Victoria's Secret Angel, was recently spotted in this dressed-up-jeans ensemble.

Keep your eyes open for more of my one-of-a-kind creations in the store.

Have a wonderful day!

Transformations

One of my favorite online stores, ModCloth.com, is hosting a new Terrific Transformations Contest.

The premise of the contest is to describe a moment that completely transformed your life.

I think all of us, both young and old, have experienced events that have had a transformation effect on our lives.

For me, it initially happened two years ago when my father suffered two strokes. It's mind-blowing how something that happens in a brief-moment can have such everlasting effects on a life.

Although life from that point on has by no means been easy for me, I wouldn't change a thing. It's made me stronger and driven me more to accomplish my goals and dreams. I've gained insight into life most never know because of all the struggles from it.

I appreciate each day, along with the things that fill it, and I'm grateful for that.


"For any one of us our forever could end in an hour, or a hundred years from now... so you'd better make every second count."
-The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen


What are some moments that have changed you?
