beth moore's new study: entrusted

A little back story...before I tell you about this launch team I'm on....when I had my first son, (who is now 4), my world was rocked. As I'm sure every other woman has experienced with their first child! I was working full time, trying to be a mom, and still trying to be a loving wife! Needless to say, it felt like efforts were getting nowhere, the baby blues had beyond set in...and I was just done with life.

It was then the love of God helped my mind refocus. I have been a Christian for many years, but the importance of daily time with God, in His Word, had not been a priority. I shifted my priorities, and realized making Him number one on my "to do" list will cause the other things in life to fall in to place. I started doing Beth Moore studies, on my own. I did jump in to a few studies with my church's women ministry as well. But I spent more time studying on my own.

Fast forward to today....and 2 kids. I now have such a passion for women's ministry - specifically young moms & working moms of preschoolers. Life is tough. Raising toddlers is no joke. But putting yourself on the backburner is not the remedy to "getting through" everything. If you're not healthy, how can you raise healthy kids? If you're not focused on your relationship with God, how can you teach your children to be? Questions I battle every day.


So when the opportunity came up to help launch Beth Moore's new Bible study, Entrusted, I jumped on board!

Here is a video with some teaching snippets, and Beth explaining the study & what it is about.




Here is a quick video on the study, and how it will be formatted....with different options to suit you.




I can not wait to jump in to this study. I'm currently walking through the Armor Of God study by Priscilla Shirer, and facilitating a discussion group with some fellow women whom I love, at my church. I plan on jumping in to the Entrusted study once we break.

So tell me, are you going through a Bible study? Looking to start one? 

stella & dot: fall launch

*Please note, this post contains links which will direct you to my Stella & Dot boutique. If you already have a stylist you work with, consult with him / her for as how to change your stylist setting back to them.*

The fall line from Stella & Dot just launched....here are my top picks for updating your accessories wardrobe!




3 in 1 versatility
"Semi-precious amethyst, sun stone, rose agate, and grey agate beads create a beautiful stationary strand. This versatile piece mixes the movement of a vintage gold tassel with a beaded strand. Wear all together or each strand separately." - Stella & Dot




If you don't own ear climbers, you need to get a pair stat!
They have become such a "go to" piece for me. 

"Our Gilded Path Ear Climber lines the earlobe with vintage gold and a pop of jet black pave." 
- Stella & Dot 






3 in 1 versatility

"Semi-precious amazonite pendant hangs from a shiny silver delicate chain. Wear alone as a feminine pendant or together as a set." - Stella & Dot







If the idea of stacking bracelets causes you stress, mainly in having to figure out what to stack, how to stack, and what piece to get....this bracelet is for you! It's the layered look, but only 1 bracelet!

"Semi-precious hematite, metallic, and shiny silver beads or shiny gold coil wrap bracelet with alternating beads add dimension and interest to this coil wrap bracelet. Finished with delicate mini tassels." - Stella & Dot


What do you find yourself in need of when it comes to your accessories? Gold earrings? Rings? Bracelets? Black bag? Sound off in the comments!

beat the heat: style roundup

Florida is not know for it's "four season" weather. We have hot, hotter, and hell. In July, there is no point in wearing make up...unless you like it melting off.

Since the heat is so bad, the a/c units are kickin' it over time trying to cool us sweaty pigs off. But, we all know what happens when you're dripping with sweat, and you go into a building that is 70 degrees, or under.

You end up freezing!

So, here is my round up for how to beat the heat via your accessories....

Evy's Tree Hoodies

These have become my FAVORITE hoodie. I retired my PINK hoodies....at least wearing them in public...and have now been rocking the Evy's Tree brand. Yes, the price point is higher, but the quality is TOP NOTCH. Store one of these in your work bag / car / backpack, for those days when you will be inside after battling the heat. They are SUPER light weight, and come in such fun colors & designs!





You have a dress code everywhere you go - - so while you want to be naked because you can not fathom wearing any clothing in this 110 degree weather, it's pretty much frowned upon everywhere. (Well, with the exception of certain zip codes that have the "free spirit" developments....you'll have to find those on your own.)

Here's where Kaiya Designs comes in. They have the most comfortable clothing. The pants are my favorite. They look like you bought them at a high end store, but they feel like yoga pants! The material is very light weight & breathable. (I even wore a pair to Disney World!)


The clothes can literally be for casual or dressy occasions!



And the best part? You can customize your inseam on the pants, length on blouses, and sizing on jumpsuits/rompers!!! (Tell Marcy - the designer, I sent you!)




I wear these for Pure Barre, but I LOVE these for layering outside of working out, as well! They are light weight & breathable. A MUST for Florida heat!



You need a dressy, non-flip-flop, shoe. Sorry, welcome to the real world. Luckily, these sandals are dressy enough for work, but also easily dressed down for play. (And they are on sale!!!)





Okay - now here are my 2 cents for the guys. My guys LOVE their Under Armour gear. 
Here are their top picks:
1. For my "big guy", he loves his UA pants
2. The 2 littles LOVE their tshirts
3. The 2 littles also wear the UA shorts a TON!
4. The 'big guy' swears by UA underwear....
    but I was recently told by ESPN radio to check out 
Tommy John the men's underwear company...found them on sale HERE
(if you miss the sale, you can receive 15% off your first order by signing up for emails on the TJ website)


What is "your go to piece" for tackling the heat?
