For those of you that know me, you know that my hair is usually a hot mess. During the winter, it’s nearly impossible to style without the help of the masters at DryBar or Parlor KC. In the summer, I’m usually in the pool or working out, so I don’t bother styling it at all. Insert: fatboy. Fatboy Hair’s “Tough Guy Water Wax” (black tub) is what keeps the Kardashian’s signature low bun or ponytail so sleek! This stuff is a staple when it comes to keeping up with the Kardashians. But, what is in the white tub you might ask? Fatboy Hair’s Sea Salt Pomade, and by adding this great “just out of the sea” texture, it keeps this beach wavin’ hair of mine going strong ALL DAY LONG. Bonus: It’s made with Shea Butter and Coconut oil to nourish the hair and smell great as well. I am so impressed with both products and highly recommend them to anyone who is in need of a little extra styling when it comes to your hair.

SO it is supposed to rain all weekend here in Kansas City, but I’m hoping the forecast is wrong and it will be in the 70s and sunny enough to wear these pants with a tank top. Speaking of these pants, can we discuss how amazing they are? This kaleidoscope print make these pants perfect for dinner at the club or paired with this sweater for a colder spring day like today.

I also want to take this opportunity to share with you this beautiful little initial necklace that was given to me by my lovely friends at Name Necklace. I just adore this little silver gem! Not only is it made out of 925 sterling silver, but the quality of this necklace really blew me away at the price point which they were offering. (This is probably why they also offer their 365 day return policy). Seriously though, find me someone who doesn’t love a monogram when it goes with literally outfit they plan on wearing.

Bumble (yes the dating app) had a quote on their Instagram story this week that said, “Women kick ass. When we all stick beside each other and support each other, amazing results happen.” Then they coined the term “FEMPIRE” and defined is as “Building an empire with bad ass women who you love and support and who love and support you.” This is what we are all trying to build as modern-day women, but why is it so hard to support and cheer on other women’s successes? Why do we secretly (or not so secretly) root for them to fail in their endeavors?

This should end now. Babes Support Babes. That’s all there is to it. Show your support for your fellow #bossbabes hustling every single day to build their FEMPIRE, whatever that looks like for her by wearing this shirt from Amelia’s Boutique.

And speaking of FEMPIRES, the adorable pink, white, and black bracelets that I am wearing around my wrist are from Sashka Co. Each bracelet is glass beaded and is handcrafted with love by female artisans in the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal. Each bracelet is carefully handmade bead by bead. Skill, passion, and some of the world’s finest glass and sterling silver beads go into each one. Proceeds from your purchase empower Nepali women artisans to rise above poverty through fair trade. How’s that for a Fempire?

Oversized Sweater

This sweater is so effortless and easy to wear over a swimsuit, a skirt, or skinny jeans. It’s oversized and roomy yet, it is made sexier by wearing it off-the-shoulder. It comes in three other colors. (I’m wearing the XS in white).

A Bit Customized


When eShakti.com – the only online women’s fashion apparel company offered me a chance to customize a dress, I was thrilled. The fashion retailer offers sizes 0-36W. They allowed me to customize this garment by selecting the style of sleeves, the neckline, the length, and the size requirements for this dress. It was such an easy process, and I am over the moon about the finished product. Go to eShakti.com to startt customizing dresses for every occasion today!

Marco Island


This weekend we attended my dear friend Sarah’s wedding celebration in Marco Island, Florida. It was such a gorgeous weekend; between the wedding festivities, the weather, the white sand beaches, and the remarkable humans that we met, we had such a fantastic time.
