    In the Chancellor's autumn statement, air passenger duty is being abolished for under-12's (and soon for under-16's). So more money for families and bollocks to the rest of us then. Why don't they abolish it for everyone?

    It is about that time of year wear certain pieces of clothing are absolutely out of the question for some cities, such as Denver. But, if you live or are visiting certain places such as LA or Houston, you can continue with some summer trends. Take the maxi skirt, for example. Just pair it with a pair of slip-ons or closed-toed wedges and a long sleeve tee. This way the outfit is giving enough of a fall/winter vibe, but you can still have more flexibilities than those colder cities. Want to change up from your old summer maxi? Try the chiffon maxi skirt. One of my new favorite maxis are the…

    This book will hit your heart and mind, hard. Author Katy Butler has written a moving and informative memoir that will stick with you and inspire contemplation. In Knocking on Heaven’s Door: The Path to a Better Way of Death, we intimately go with Katy on her complicated journey of vowing to help her mother get her father’s pacemaker turned off – how she would “learn much about the implications of that vow, about the workings of pacemakers and of human hearts, about the law and medicine and guilt, about money and morality.” As Butler writes, it’s a true and heartrending story…

  • Fuchsia dress for a confident mom

    25 Nov 2014 | 1:37 pm
    Fuchsia dress, how crazy is that? I can bet for the majority of women it is not the “go to” color when it comes to shopping. However, it is one of my favorite colors in the world! I find it very appropriate for a confident fashionable mom. There are so many girls who are afraid of something like Fuchsia dress for no reason. I agree, it is not like black dress which you can wear from the morning till night, but if one think about the perfect place and occasion when it is a good idea for this type of dress, I am pretty sure women would change their minds. I have only one Fuchsia…

    Not only are sequin pants perfect for New Years Eve they’re perfect for any and every occasion! I remember the first time I saw a someone wearing them and I thought those definitely aren’t me. Yet, after I tried them on I was convinced that every girl needed a pair. So, you’re probably wondering how the heck do I wear these pants and with what? Night Out: The first pair I bought were gold and from Free People. This is where I started to get a feel for how I should be styling them. The first time I wore them was to a roof-top bar party for my friend’s birthday party. I…

    Me and you just looking at her in her blue suede shoes! Ok, I don’t know, nor do I think, those are the real words, but they work for me because I’m excited to announce, I bought my first flared skirt. If you’re a bit confused as to why this is exciting news, I’ve got your back. When you’ve skipped a few years going out, taking care of a toddler, getting dressed up seems like a bigger accomplishment. I don’t know why we thought in college that dresses would make us look like we were trying so much harder than a skirt did, but for some reason we were all…
  • Take Your Nude Dress Everywhere

    25 Nov 2014 | 1:09 pm
    I used to not like the color nude as a blonde because I thought that it washed me out. After seeing some celebrities wear nude dresses I thought that maybe I could pull it off. Even after having the first child. There’s something about the neutrals that are so intriguing. The neutrals are so simple, but they go with everything and if worn correctly you can actually stand out in them. I started off buying nude pumps. I fell in love with them. I wore them with EVERYTHING. Skinnies, dresses, rompers, skirts etc. Its so easy to work with nude. There’s also that new trend of normcore.

    Childfree Reflections

  • Childfree By Choice Among Gays/Lesbians.

    13 Dec 2014 | 10:51 am
    Recently, it came to my attention  how much pressure gay and lesbian people feel to have children. And why not? When the ideal picture of a family is having the addition of at least one child, they’re under the same cultural incentives/myths to go forth and multiply. Since biologically they can’t, they’re often  made to feel  they should search out a surrogate, or explore in-vitro, sperm donors and adoption. They’re not to be thought of as a couple without them! If they’re “out” and in a committed relationship, it get’s worse. Apparently that…

    In this blog, I hope to give you pointers to stop any confrontation to remain childfree by choice. Remember, most of the time, people will mean well. They chose to have children. Many of them are happy. The ones who aren’t will rarely tell you that but want you to suffer along. Remember: 1.Your goal isn’t to defend a personal choice. Just like parents are rarely made to defend their choice, neither should you. A simple statement saying you prefer the childfree -by -choice lifestyle is all that’s necessary. Don’t go into details or pronounce how much you love kids when…
