Moody Style: Lady In Red

I can’t believe that today is the last day of March.  Seriously, where does the time go?? 

One of my all time favorite colors that I love to wear is red.  I know it’s not everyone’s favorite, but it really works for me. I feel more powerful and confident when I wear it and the complients don’t hurt either.  I’ve been obsessing over finding the right pair of red heels to add to my wardrobe.  I love the ones that Lisa wears over at Respect the Shoes (see here), but unfortunately they are sold out.  So, when I found these lovelies I didn’t hesitate.  The best part about this find was that they were on sale for only $14!  I love those kinds of shopping days.  Do any of you have a go-to color that you wear often?  Let me know in the comments.

I'm Going to BlogHer 2014


Ever since I started blogging in 2010, I’ve always been curious about attending a blogger conference.  Have any of you attended a blogger conference before?  For the past few years, I continued to hear about one conference more frequently over other well-known conferences.  I’m talking about BlogHer, a cross-platform media network and publisher for women.  I've read numerous posts from previous BlogHer conference attendees and I’ve seen some notable photos of the conference sessions and legendary parties.  Each time I read a reference about the BlogHer conferences, I've made a mental note to add it on my “to do” list. 
Well last month, I finally decided to register for the 10th Annual BlogHer Conference in San Jose, CA from July 24 -26, 2014.  I’m pretty excited about attending my first blogger conference because it is one of the largest events for bloggers and social media influencers in the nation.  They also have some outstanding keynote speakers lined up this year such as Arianna Huffington, Kerry Washington, Jenny Lawson, Tig Notaro, the 10x10 presenters, and the Voices of the Year. 

I'm Going to BlogHer '14!Although I’m excited, I also have a little anxiety because I’m not sure what to expect.  I think my main issue is that as of right now I don’t know anyone else attending, so I’m hoping that I don’t regret my decision.  I have to remind myself of the main reasons why I signed up.  I hope that I’ll gain some helpful tips to enhance my blog, learn some general information to share with my readers and to meet some amazing new bloggers!

I wanted to share the agenda for BlogHer '14 with you in case any of you may be interested!  Please check it out.  To register for BlogHer '14, please visit: http://blogher14.eventbrite.com.

Are any of you going to BlogHer this year?  Let me know. I’d love to meet you. Also, if you have any advice for a BlogHer newbie, please leave a comment below…I’m all ears.

Moody Style: Ready for Spring?

Happy Hump Day everyone!  Are you guys ready for Spring?  I am.  I know that some of my fellow bloggers and readers that live in the Midwest and up north on the East Coast have been ready for a couple of months now.  I’m very lucky to live in a warm weather state.  And for the most party it’s relatively warm or really hot most of the year.  However, we have some occasional cold days that come out of nowhere.  The weather is cold (cold for us southerners is anything below 50 and some may say under 70) for a few days and then go back to being really warm afterwards.  I know some of you may be thinking that you don’t see a problem.  And in the grand scheme of things it’s not a problem at all.  I’m just ready for the warm weather to stay and the cooler weather to go away for good.  I’m ready to wear outfits like this without having to grab a jacket or sweater when I leave the house.  I’m ready to wear lots of pastels and light fabrics.  And I’m ready to put away some of my cold weather pieces until next fall and winter.  What are you all ready for this Spring? Let me know in the comments.

Moody Style: School of Fish

Do you ever feel like you’re always going with the flow? Instead of swimming against the current and making waves, I’ve been following along like a school of fish.  And I'm not happy about it.  After a little me time and some planning, I’ve decided that some things in my life need to change.  Over the next few months, you all will start to see some of those changes on my blog. I’m excited about some of the changes I have in store for myself and I can’t wait to share them with you all.  I’ve been traveling like a crazy person today that I almost forgot to post my full outfit from a few days ago. So I’m going to keep this post short and sweet.  Enjoy the pics!
