There are three important things about this coming weekend:
While Memorial Day is a time of remembrance for those who died for our country it also marks the start of many summer traditions; vacations, picnics, vacations, grueling heat, and vacations. Are you already packed, and ready for your mini-vacation this Memorial Day weekend?!
I can not stress enough how important it is to have Read the rest of this entry ?
Last week during my weekly trip to Goodwill, I found a wooden sign. I have been brainstorming ideas on what to do with all of our leftover fence wood (we have a ton!), and some wooden signs were definitely on the list of items to create… So why did I go ahead and buy the wooden sign at Goodwill?

Myrtle Beach is synonymous with bikers. So its only natural that they would have the largest Biker event in the State of South Carolina! If you’re in the Grand Strand Area and into biking, there’s only three days left of this much anticipated yearly event.

If you’re in the market for a pair of white jeans, but don’t feel like dishing out the $$ to buy new ones, and you happen to have either: a pair of old blue jeans or $5.49 to spend on Goodwill jeans…break out the bleach.
To be honest, most of my experiences with bleach + fabric have been pretty bad, typically due to accidental spilling of bleach resulting in one of the largest annoyance of homemaking…bleach spots. That stuff is powerful!
After scouring the internet for bleaching tips and tricks, I found a large body of “fabric bleaching literature” explaining how bleach can be used to lighten ( duh) to various lighter shades of the original shade. Therefore, bleaching has a spectrum of lighter colors it can produce depending upon the original fabric color. So medium blue jeans can be bleached to light blue jeans to white jeans and all the shades in between! Read the rest of this entry ?
White pants are an essential summer wardrobe item.
White pants offer a sophisticated alternative to the everyday blue jeans, and bring an elegant flare into the workplace. The look is perfect for any occasion, and size. A common misconception about white pants, or the color white in general, is that you can only wear it if you’re a size two. While you may need to pay more attention to the shape of white pants, and what they are accentuating in relation to your body ( as opposed to say a pair of black pants), the white pant look is achievable regardless of size!
If you’re curvy…..
Look for white pants that are high rise and straight leg( knee to calf is the same width). The high rise will help to Read the rest of this entry ?
This is the first year that my girls attended “school”. It was a pre-school program for 2-year olds but I was amazed at how much they learned and grew during this past year. Not only socially, but academically, as well. While I try to teach them new things everyday, I am NOT a teacher. I have no idea what is age-appropriate material and sometimes lack the patience necessary to follow through with a lesson. Read the rest of this entry ?

Come show your support to the many individuals who have overcome their barriers to employment, and are making successful strides in both life and the workplace!
Hope to see you there,
Finally, the sun has broke through what seems like weeks of grey skies. Given the current sunny state, which may or may not last about an hour, I think its safe to say many people are counting down to summer ( official date of Friday, June 21st). And that means….summer fashion.
Now summer does have fashion ( at least a little), although sometimes it appears most people equate summer with one outfit: cutoffs, tank top, and flip-flops. But just in case you’re willing to step outside of this staple southern outfit, here are a few trends to test!
Bold Graphics, Minimal Accessories
No, I’m not referring to Ed Hardy tees. Expect to see a lot of bold designs, with “loud” colors. Read the rest of this entry ?
