What is your personal aesthetic?  Some people like sleek and modern, with lots of white and polished metal.  Others like country chic with dusty shades of green or lavender. And still others go for the cabin chic look with tree branches, animals, and hunter green.

Me?  I go for bold. I love color.  I love texture.  I love pattern.  I bet you’d never guess that from looking at my site, though, would ya?  Anyway, that’s one of the reasons I was so excited to see that Kleenex had partnered with one of my favorite designers for their new line of designer prints.

Recently, as part of my ambassadorship with Kohl’s, I had the chance to sneak preview the new Peter Som DesigNation collaboration, that will be available exclusively at Kohl’s.  Inspired by St Barths, these pieces are flirty and fun with quite a nautical flair.

What’s in this Peter Som for Kohl’s Sneak Peek?

First up was the black and white dress.  This is the type of dress that can take you from day to  night, and back to day again.  Pair it with a blazer for work.  Lose the blazer and add some sparkly jewelry and a pair of fabulous heels to hit up happy hour or for dinner with that certain someone.

As you may have heard, pink is like the IT color for spring 2014.  If you’re not wearing pink, you might as well be wearing a potato sack.  Recently, I had the chance to head over to Kohl’s to see what they had in the way of pink clothing and accessories for spring.

Shop for Good with ShopFunder

This Shopfunder conversation was sponsored by ShopFunder.  Opinions are our own.

diva necklace 650 x 487 Shop for Good with ShopFunder

I am a huge fan of indie and artisan goods.   Indie jewelry artisans, small bag or clothing designers, artisan foods and cosmetics – I love them all.  One of the biggest problems with supporting these smaller companies is the ability to actually find them.  They don’t generally have large budgets to advertise with, and if they have a website, it’s possible that you could never find them.  It becomes frustrating.

There’s a new site out there to help us – ShopFunder.  ShopFunder has compiled a ton of great indie and artisan companies all in one site.  Each company has a storefront that displays their wares, or you can search by whatever items you’re looking for – like necklaces or clutch bags. As if that wasn’t enough, a portion of all sales go towards charity.  You get to shop small, indie brands and do something good for charity at the same time!?  Pretty great, right?

Press Samples

I watch a lot of TV.  There, I said it.  Most shows I don’t watch-watch, I just sort of pay half-attention, while I’m doing something else.  There are a couple of shows, though, that get my full attention.  One of these is Revenge on ABC.  I have to know what Emily Thorne’s next move is going to be and how the Graysons are planning to screw someone over.  And at some point, SOMEONE has to figure out that Emily Thorne is really Amanda Clarke, right?  RIGHT?!?!?!

Cowboy Boots for Every Style + $100 Country Outfitters Gift Card Giveaway

This cowboy boots conversation was sponsored by Country Outfitters.  I did receive a promotional item for my assistance.

Cowboy boots for all fashion styles Cowboy Boots for Every Style + $100 Country Outfitters Gift Card Giveaway

I have always had a love affair with western boots.  It all started about a million years ago when I was just a wee little thing.   I can remember being a small tyke and wearing corduroy pants and cowboy boots, dragging my stick horse around with me everywhere I went.

While I grew out of the stick horse phase, I’ve never left the cowboy boots behind.  Whether it was boots with shorts when I was in 2nd grade – I never knew how ahead of my time I really was!  Fast forward to 5th and 6th grade where I started pairing dresses and leggings with cowboy boots.  That was the beginning of the Grunge phase of fashion and I was fully involved!
