Back in the 90′s bomber jacket were seen mainly in black and green with orange interiors, but thanks to the modern shapes, textures and colors that they now come in they’ve made a huge comeback. I personally think they look best in black (see Kanye and Kim below) but there are tons of options to fit everyone’s style. Wear it for fall with a white tee and jeans and for winter layer with sweaters and cords.

Last night I had the pleasure of tweeting along with Beats By Dre during the 2014 VMA’s and let me tell you Beats made the second screen as fun as watching the broadcast! I was eager to watch some of my favorite performers like Beyonce, Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj but it was Bang Bang that was at every single turn all through the night! Beats and Target made sure to put strong women like Arianna Grande, Jessie J and Nicki Minaj on a major platform and I loved every single minute of it. Even Nicki’s wardrobe mishap was handled in a tasteful yet sexy way. When my kids heard Bang Bang they literally ran over and blasted it (I had my own little VMA party going on while I tweeted and watched!).
Of course I could not watch the VMAs without noticing what the stars were wearing: Izzy had a futuristic vibe to her dress, Taylor Swift shocked in a Mary Katrantzou romper, Jennifer Lopez showed some serious leg as only she can in a Charbel Zoe dress, Kim Kardashian wore Balmain and Beyonce looked like the queen she is in Nicolas Jebran dress.
Beats hands down won the commentary game during the show this year using real time gif instead of the typical chat. I was honored to be part of the convo cause my family and I are huge fans of Beats By Dre and all of my boys use the Beats By Dre headphones and I can’t work without my Pink Pill XL that I got as a birthday gift by my side (all of which are now available at Target). It was a fun filled night that ended with the amazing Beyonce winning the Vanguard of the Year. It was so cute to see Jay Z in the audience with little Blue Ivy dancing in his lap.

Growing up I never watched football the only sports we used to watch was the occasional boxing match and then when my brother got older we started to watch basketball but it wasn’t in a fanatical way or anything. Having five boys, you’d think that one of would be a sports fan but there isn’t. William, who’s now 15 used to LOVE football! He even played tackle and baseball for a couple of years. I put him in both sports at once because he needed a way to burn energy. He was the type of kid that would randomly do a book report along with a diorama just for the fun of it because he was bored. Once he hit middle school he changed. He became very mellow and now loves to play the guitar. It was once he grew out of his sports phase that we kind of stopped watching sports. I know they keep tabs on what’s going in the sports world and even have a team they root for but it’s not the same. I, on the other hand, find football season an amazing excuse to eat wings and wear some cute sports apparel. Below are some of my favorite picks all under $50.
I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing worse than standing in front of your closet trying to figure out what to wear; yes, even men have those days. I like to look into my closet and build my outfit and in order to build my outfit I need a foundation. This is where timeless pieces come into play. The pieces that will always go with any trend and you can wear over and over again a million different ways.

Pregnancy clothes nowadays can be hit or miss. You’ll find some stylish but pricey, affordable but cheap quality but the bottom line is being comfy and getting the most out of every dollar you spend is always the most important because you’re only going to be wearing them for nine months. Its products like
This fashion break-through was designed by Rachel Kearl, the design was born out of her own frustration over no longer fitting into her favorite designer jeans. After experimenting with a hair tie to give her a little extra room in those slightly snug faves, the idea morphed and progressed into a more effective prototype and the ultimate fashion savior—Kevel’s Perfect Fit—made its debut. Today, because one size doesn’t fit all, Kevel has developed three versions of its original design to help battle those sneaky “shrinking” waistbands, including Kevel Mommy.
I’ve seen tons of pregnant women use the old hair band trick on their pants, but are left struggling with the zipper. This eliminates all the fuss and does all the work during pregnancy and after pregnancy on those days where you feel like you can’t find a thing to wear. It’s a household must for under $20 and it comes with a few to ensure you’ll always have the right fit.

It’s not too often that Rhianna wears a stylish outfit that can be worn by normal every day gals, so when she does I jump on the chance and recreate it for less. Here she is wearing a striped button up, skinny jeans and sexy strappy sandals. Must have outfit for now and easy to wear into fall. Love it!
I’ve gotten my share of
The first thing I did was test out the waxing strip on my legs and it worked great on spots with thicker hair. I did notice that rubbing the strips several times until you actually feel the wax warming helped out quite a bit. Overall, not much pain but like I said I’m never in serious need of a shave/wax.
After waxing I gave the body moisturizer and hair inhibitor a try and the first thing I noticed was how yummy it smelled! The moisturizer is exactly how I prefer moisturizers to be – light weight and without a greasy feeling. I used it every night after showering for one week and what did I notice? Extremely moisturized skin and my normal once a week leg shave was no longer needed – awesome!
After I cleared up a nasty break out on my face I decided to try out the facial strips. This made me a little nervous because my skin is so sensitive. I’ve had some pretty bad reactions to facial strips and have been using Sally Hansen Hair Removal Creme religiously for about 10 years. I applied the wax and strips on the sides of my face where my sideburns grow and rubbed until I felt the wax warm. I then closed my eyes, pulled the strip off and waited. Result? Clear smooth skin – love it!
I didn’t give the bikini bump blaster or the cooling spray a try but from the looks of it I’m sure they’re just as great. My favorite was the moisturizing hair inhibitor – it’s a nice treat after a long day on the beach. I definitely recommend giving any of these four products a try (especially during summer). Click
Next time you want to throw on a little black dress, why not give Christy Thieggen’s outfit a try! I love how she balanced out her sexy sheer top with a demure midi skirt when she could have gone with a short or tight skirt. It’s flawless! Tip: looking for a more conservative version of this outfit? Simply wear a camisole under a sheer top.
