Dress Duo

I am so excited to partner up with one of my favorite boutiques for this post (and hopefully more in the future)!  Tiger Lily is located in Stillwater, OK. However, don’t let that sway you they are great at custom orders and keeping customers updated about what they have in store.  OR if you have a picture of something you like send it their way and they can help get it for you.

They sell quality products for great prices. Great candles, clothes, accessories and more! Today I am going to style two dresses with the same accessories. I am going for a more casual look but as you can see in the collage two beautiful ladies are sporting the dresses with a night out look so they are VERY versatile! newoutfit

Fantastic Philanthropy: It’s all about the YMCA

I think it is about time to outline another Fantastic Philanthropy! The YMCA has grown close to my heart over the last year.  My husband sits on the local board for one of the branches and I started working out there about a year ago.  We are involved specifically with the Westside and Benbrook YMCA’s.

The YMCA gives scholarships and youth program opportunities. Persons who wish to utilize the services of the Y, but cannot afford them, are given assistance based on their needs. This allows the YMCA to say “Yes!” to those who otherwise would not be able to participate. The YMCA offers a complete continuum of services for all ages.

Here is a great video of Cheryl who has benefitted from a YMCA scholarship:

Beyond the great things they do for the community the staff is great! I am greeted by my name everyday and asked how I am.  The group fitness instructors recognize you and also are very friendly and knowledgeable sources.

I think that goes to show how great the YMCA is not only for individuals but for the community.  Whether you are there to get fit, have children that play sports or are looking for a great philanthropy the YMCA serves all of those and much, much more!

Below are just a few pictures from my YMCA adventures:IMG_3296

Visit the YMCA for more info on how to volunteer, donate or join the gym!

NYX Matte Lipstick Review

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a fabulous Valentine’s Day! I stopped by the store and picked up this new color and I am IN LOVE.

I picked the matte finish because I figured I can make it glossy if I want or leave it matte if I want. The best of both worlds am.i.right?!

I goes on smooth and has a great wear.  Also, it does’t seem to dry up my lips! For about $6 bucks I decided to try out a bold pink [Shocking Pink]! What do you think?

Blazer Series: Part 1

Lots of new series are on the docket this year.  Starting off with one of my favorites! Blazers add such a great addition to any outfit.  They are perfect to dress up a casual outfit or structure to a flouncy top!

The other day was “Go Red For Women” and I sported the number below for my mom who passed away from heart disease.
