Lane Bryant Best Fitting Denim

Ask 100 women what is the most versatile items in their closet and I bet 98% will say a pair of jeans. As I mentioned in my 2019 wardrobe goals getting another pair of jeans is on my closet to do this year since right now I only have one pair. And wouldn't you know it but the folks at Lane Bryant must have read my mind since they're offering the Best Fitting Denim event this upcoming weekend and they have asked me to be their special guest so not only I could find my own perfect fitting jeans but help y'all do the same.
Lane Bryant offers a good variety of jeans not only in shape but in color, wash and fun details. Before showing the perfect pair for me here's a look at just a few of the options. It was really nice to be able to play around with the wash, length and fit so see what I liked about each.

Although I LOVE the fun ruffle and ribbon embellishments I felt like a traditional pair of jeans matches my lifestyle. I tried on the straight leg and boot cut three times back and forth trying to decided because I liked them both so much. Ultimately I went with the Tighter Tummy Essential Stretch Boot Jean.

I'm lucky enough to be able to wear jeans to work but I prefer to dress them up a bit to keep the overall look professional and the length of the boot cut (32.5 inch inseam) works really well for me at 5'10 with heels. I also find darker wash jeans to be dressier. The tighter tummy technology of these jeans adds a little bit of shaping in the front and I'm in love with the way the fit hugs my curves in the back. I am currently between sizes so I sized down to the 20. My philosophy with jeans is that they should be a little snug in the dressing room since they will relax with wear and sure enough by the time I took these pics the fit felt perfect! 

I've also been on the prowl for a utility jacket - classic pieces with feminine details are the cornerstone of my wardrobe so I had to snag the ruffle-front anorak jacket; It's less formal than a blazer but still adds structure. The woven ruffle-hem hacci top adds a little more feminine detailing and I finished the look with delicate jewelry - the 60 in necklace with CZ and mini resin huggie circle earrings. I'm wearing the 18/20 in both the top and jacket. The jacket has a drawstring insert around the waist so it can be cinched making the fit adjustable.

On the weekends I can easily swap the top for a graphic tee and the heels for flats or sneakers and get a completely different look - which is pretty much my favorite thing to do with clothes.

There's literally so many great jean options that I just didn't have the time to try on everything to show them here so I'd love to see you on Saturday to help you find you best fitting denim and show you some fun styling ideas for dressing up or dressing down your jeans. All denim will be 40% off during the event and every purchase comes with a free pair on panties. In addition to giving some style tips we'll have giveaways at 2:30pm, 3pm, 3:30pm and 4pm. If you're in Memphis I would love to see you at the Country Crossing location in Cordova (off Germantown Parkway in front of Ikea) but if you're in a different city I hope you'll visit your local store for this event.

Sensible Portions

I'm Sometimes you have to recognize your strengths and when it's time to outsource . For me a healthy lifestyle is not a strength. I love the idea of eating small healthy meals and working out everyday but then I get hangry and eat anything in sight. Or I have a busy weekend and don't have time to meal prep, and then I'm screwed for the week and one bad week turns into a bad month, and a bad year and a decade of gaining weight. So, when a sorority sister posted a meal plan she had found success with I was very interested. Shaun and I tried a similar program last year but it was very expensive ($170 for one person for 5 days) That's a great investment if you need to lose 10 or 20 lbs but when you have a lot to lose you need a long term plan that is viable from a time, nutrition and financial aspect. 
Long term it's still pricey but I was very impressed with the value and results of sensible portions and decided to give it a try. Like most meal plans the plan is …

Vi Peel

2018 Update: Hello Internet! Welcome to my most popular blog post - I presume you're here because you're considering getting a facial peel. Please keep in mind this is an old post and my photo quality is not great. Please feel free to read and enjoy but I do want to let you know that as the years have passed I have taken a more proactive approach with my skin care and I do not get frequent peels. If you'd like to see my modern approach to skincare check out some of my other beauty posts and I'd love for you to connect with me on Instagram to keep up with my latest and greatest recommendations.

Hello! So I got my first Vi Peel which I was super excited about. Since the Botox post was popular I figure y'all would like this too. Besides, it's well established I'm beyond any sense of privacy or shame here.
I got my first peel years ago - a mild Glycolic peel added onto my fac…

A new Mrs Box for a new ring

When I got engaged in 2015 I saw the most beautiful ring box on instagram and I had to have one. The Mrs Box is a handmade, velvet vintage style ring box perfectly for not only keeping your ring safe when you're not wearing it but also let's be real - looking pretty. Since my original purchase from The Mrs Box they have expanded the collection - my original box is the classic petite which at the time was the only box offered; there is now a larger square and a beveled shape and both have options to hold one or two rings. So when I found myself getting a new ring it only seemed right that my new ring deserved a new box. (You can see my original ring and box here)

The Mrs Box has so many gorgeous choices to be honest I just couldn't decided so I left the options up to you, my wonderful readers! Y'all felt pretty strongly that I should get the double box to hold both my engagement ring and wedding band and love the beveled shape. I had narrowed it down to pink or turquoi…

The Mrs Box

Happy birthday to me! I'm pretty awful about picking my own gifts and this year was no exception because my fiancé would have NEVER bought me what I wanted on his own - The Mrs Box. 

The Mrs Box is a tiny, handmade, vintage velvet ring box. Here it is next to a standard size ring box: 

When I receive mine I did and unboxing and discussed what makes this such a special item, check it out:
I can't wait to see how our photographer uses it in the detail pictures! 

Birthday Discounts

Woohoo! It's my birthday week y'all! Birthdays are always a great time for brands to make customers special and each year I'm able to take advantage of some pretty good discounts in July so I thought I would share the love and talk about some of my favorite discounts and how to get them.

My absolute favorite discount is from Kendra Scott! During your birthday month you can receive one regular item at 50% off. It's your first time you'll have to show your id in store and sign up for their email list but then once they have you on file you can just go into the store and say that you would like to apply your birthday discount to your purchase and give your email address. This year I purchased the Tatiana Long Pendant Necklace which usually sells for $175. This necklace takes the look of the popular Rayne necklace and really amps it up.  
If jewelry is your thing you can also get a $10 credit from Charming Charlie - this discount is sent to Charm Rewards members at the…
