My Weekday Work Uniform IRL

comfy outfit idea

SHOP THE LOOK

TEE: c/o Hanes Nano T-Shirt  //   BRA:  c/o Hanes ComfortFlex Fit Bras

I’m all about playing dress up in the most textured fabrics and highest of heels, but most of the time these days, I’m reaching for the coziest items in my closet. Granted, my current office is in our home and my two employees are four-legged, but it wasn’t long ago that I was working in the corporate world, and I remember the joyous feeling of ditching my dress and heels for my cozy tee, sports bra and sweatpants every evening when I got home. Whether you’re a work-from-home girl like me, a stay-at-home mama or you’re a boss lady in the corporate world, every girl needs plenty of go-to comfy cozy clothes in her wardrobe.

That’s why I’m so excited to talk about some comfy essentials I’ve been living in lately: Hanes’ Nano T-shirts and ComfortFlex Fit Bras.

Girl Talk – The Three Letter Word…UTI

uti treatments and preventions

Time for a little girl talk sesh here on the blog. This time, I’m talking about that three-letter word we all love to hate, but don’t necessarily love to talk about: UTI’s. As a sister, a daughter and a friend, I know I’m not alone when I say that this very painful issue has affected me. In fact, it’s something I’ve struggled with my entire life, many times because I simply didn’t feel comfortable talking about it. But to that I say no more! Ladies – it’s time we shattered the stigma and prioritized our urinary health by opening the conversation about bladder and UTI infections and tackling them!

 Today I’m so excited to partner up with AZO so I can open up that conversation with you all by sharing my personal battle with urinary health and how their amazing line of products have helped not only reduce the pain of these pesky infections, but helped to protect against future UTI’s.

Live Colorfully at The Greenbrier Resort

If you follow me on instagram, then you might remember a little girl’s trip I took with my momma to visit the gorgeous Greenbrier Resort earlier this year. From the magic of Dorothy Draper’s strikingly colorful, traditional interior style to the historical traditions rooted in Southern charm, not to mention the more-than 55 activities on the 11,000 acre property, if the The Greenbrier doesn’t already top your must-visit list, you’ll be adding it very soon! I already shared a peek at one of my fave rooms at The Greenbrier and the stunning outdoor pool here on the blog, but today I’m SO excited to finally share my full review of America’s Resort (and you’ll see why it took me so long – there are so many pictures!!).

Click through giant round- up of photos of the breath-taking resort and my recommendations of things to see, eat, and do while visiting The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.
