Styling Project: Facing Fashion Fears with Buzzfeed’s Ladylike!

This year has been insane for me, in the best ways possible. I’ve been asked to take part in projects I still can’t believe, worked with incredible styling clients and landed a job with Stitch Fix on top of all the other goodness.

Last month, Buzzfeed’s Ladylike invited me down to LA to style them for a week and help them face their “Fashion Fears”.  We all have them, for me I hate showing my arms. I’ve lost 80-ish lbs in the past 15 months and my skin has become, well…lose. Not exactly my ideal, but these ladies have inspired me to start facing my own fears!

Here is the video:

I’ve had a lot of ladies reaching out and asking where they can find the pieces I chose for these looks, you can find them below! Thank you to Mod Cloth for providing the pieces for this project! Those that are not linked are unfortunately no longer available.

My Office & Desk Necessities!

Thank you to HP for sponsoring this post.

Lookie Boo office House that ETSY built

My original office featured in “The House That Etsy Built” project.

Ahhh, memories. This is my original office I set up when we first moved into our house about 3.5 years ago.  A lot has changed since then – including another baby! Pictured here is my first HP Notebook that I used for going on 4 years until my new love came into my life.

HP 17' Laptop Lookie Boo

Isn’t she lovely?! I haven’t named her yet, but she’s pretty awesome. Meet my fresh HP 17” White Notebook — my new BFF.  I opted for white because it matches all of my outfits, but this Notebook is also available in blue, white, red teal and silver.

In addition to finding the perfect laptop for my lifestyle & business, I have discovered my absolute necessities for my work space. These things help set me up for success and put me in the right zone.

IMG_5822

{1} 2017 COLOR ME Organized Perfect Planner // Combining my need for schedule organization and love for coloring.

{2} Apple Round Fitness Ball in pink // When my back starts to get sore from longer periods of sitting,  I stretch and switch to sitting on this 26″ fitness ball.

{3} Wireless Optical Mouse // Helps work longer without discomfort in my hand and wrist.  Also helps avoid things like arthritis and carpel tunnel later in life.

{4} HP 17.3″ HD LED Intel Quad-Core, 8GB RAM 2TB HDD Windows 10 Laptop with Software, Services and Lifetime Support If you might have noticed, photos are everything to me. I’m the crazy lady taking pictures of my kids every hour. Which thankfully lead me to this blog and many awesome opportunities. However, this requires a lot of storage and most Notebooks in my past just didn’t have enough room for all my crazy. My new BFF here offers 2 TB of storage allowing me to quickly move between multiple apps  AND letting me easily store all of my media in one place.

I’ve been promoting the awesome sale HSN is having of the HP Notebooks the past week  on social media and the awesome spot they had this past Sunday (7/24) featuring The Girls With Glasses! They are just so cute, I really need to step my glasses game up. I love the Behind the Scenes at HSN Facebook live video they did. Facebook Live is so rad, it makes me feel like I can be everywhere at once.

Bottom line, this HP Notebook is a standout in the tech space, touting the largest hard drive HSN has ever offered, CD/DVD drive and Windows 10! Engineered by the great minds at HP, you can count on this Notebook for it’s thin, portable body and powerful Intel Pentium Core processor.

{5} Thug Life Extra Large Coffee Mug // By Simply Pretty Prints on Etsy. Because, coffee.

{6} Wrist Supporting Mouse Pad // Like the optical mouse, it helps work longer without discomfort in my hand and wrist.  Also helps avoid things like arthritis and carpel tunnel later in life.

What are your desk necessities for success?

Until Next time!

XO Tiffany

Cozy Rainy Days: Hanes Fleeces for the Family

I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving Holiday! I’m still soaking up the lazy day mentality with the kids by staying in fleece and sweats as much as the day allows. We have been waiting for rainy days for quite awhile here in California with the drought, so I am enjoying every droplet while the weather allows. There is something so cozy and relaxing about cuddling up in a nice pair of sweats and watching football or a Holiday movie with the kids on a rainy day. It’s a pregnant woman’s dream! Especially with all of these leftovers. I think people would be surprised how comfortable the kids and I dress when we are not out and about. Maybe its because of the amount of glitter and bows Ruby and I are usually adorned in? Or Jude’s endless collection of bow-ties and vests? But I can promise you, when we are at home, we like to take full advantage of our comfy clothes! Especially on Thanksgiving weekend. How are you and your family spending your long Holiday weekend? I hope its been mostly filled with carbs, sugar and relaxation! If you’re family is like us, check out these cute and comfortable (and tag-less) looks from Hanes, fleeces for the whole family!

Hanes sweats and fleeces are great looking, comfortable quality wardrobe staples for the entire family. One of the benefits for myself is that they are cozy and warm without looking bulky and frumpy. I especially love the two-tone hoodies for girls! Especially the teal and pink (obviously).  I like that in addition to fun designs and bright colors, Hanes offers quality basic colored hoodies and sweatshirts in my favorites such as black, grey, navy, white, etc. The kids love that they are completely tag-less! These looks and more are available at Hanes.com and mass retailers.
