When I saw they had a whole bunch of ridiculously high heels with price tags I could actually afford, I knew I was in the right place. I’m 5’4″ and can’t walk in heels for the life of me, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love to buy them for the occasional photo shoot or burlesque {Read More}

My life lately: busy, crazy, awesome


I’ve had a few people ask me recently what I’ve been up to lately. The short answer is that things are busy, crazy, and AWESOME. Aside from just the regular being a mom and kick-ass girlfriend stuff I do, October is one of my busiest months of the year.
