In Love With Penelope: My New Favorite Karina Dress

Penelope in Grey Swirl from Karina Dresses

Last month I ordered the Penelope from Karina Dresses as part of their Frockstar™ blogger program and I am in love. So in love that I wore it to Prestige Conference in Las Vegas. Why is it a big deal that I wore it to Prestige? Because I’m one of the event organizers and I was on my feet, running around in it, all day long.

If Only I Could Share a Picture

Fraggle Rock Tattoo Update: Trash Heap

Fraggle Rock tattoo - trash heap fresh ink

Back in 2012, I started getting work done on my Fraggle Rock tattoo.

Luckily, I’m finally back to making progress towards its completion. Most recently, Dan did the color for the trash heap on the back of my calf. Along with Marjory the Trash Heap, Dan also redid the edge of Red’s tail and Wembley’s {Read More}
