I’m keeping today’s post super short! We’re celebrating sweet Prince George today since it’s his 1st birthday!
Here are some of my favorite photos of the little prince from the last year. Those cheeks!! I just want to peench them!! (Yes, I know how to spell pinch, but “peench” is the southern, giggly version of pinch.)
Pre-teen confession: I’ve been a “royal watcher” since I was a little girl. Feel in love with Princess Diana and swore one day I would marry Prince William.
Obviously, that didn’t happen…but … Read the rest

When I started my network marketing business in 2009, I had hardly any “extra time” left in my schedule. I was working 40+ hours per week in a cubicle for my public relations job and I was also engaged to be married, so we were planning our wedding. The last thing I thought I had time for was a side business.
What I realized, however, was that most successful network marketers started their networking careers alongside another full-time gig. The beauty of network marketing is that it’s a very social business. You might also call it “lifestyle marketing” because a … Read the rest

History has been an interesting subject to me for many years. I grew up in a house full of Native American artifacts, World War II memorabilia and old stamps – all interests of my father. The stories behind many of these items fascinated me. Many of them were passed down to my dad, so not only was I curious about the items themselves, but also the people they came from.
Once our household got a computer, scanner and printer, Dad decided it would be a good idea to preserve some … Read the rest

Community involvement and volunteerism are hugely important to me. I’ve descended from a long line of individuals who have planted deep roots in their communities and positively impacted the people around them. I am so thankful for this rich heritage and feel called to do the same. This is what we’re put on the earth to do – serve others and make the world a better place.
I believe we all want to lighten the burdens of those around us. We want our communities to thrive and we want to leave the world in a happier shape than we found … Read the rest

The Internet has made the world MUCH smaller and, for me, has been the catalyst for many friendships that have led to new business partnerships, clients and all-around great collaboration with people I otherwise likely never would have met…including this amazing woman I’ve had the privilege of interviewing today!
Devin DeVasquez and I connected online earlier this year and discovered we have many common interests – specifically, beauty and empowering women.
Devin brings a number of really neat projects to the table and I’m excited to share some of her story with you. Starting with the basics, Devin launched DevRonn … Read the rest

For any of the men who follow my blog, I apologize in advance…today’s topic is pretty girly. If anything, perhaps it will be a tad enlightening for you.
It seems as if everywhere I turn nearly every day, there is a “new, up and coming beauty trend”. Donning feathers in one’s hair, blingy nail jewelry and bejeweled lashes…just to name a few.
As someone who enjoys trying new beauty products, but who also desires to be simple, chic and professional over trendy and cutting edge, I thought I’d share a quick round up of my favorite manicure styles.
(Clockwise starting … Read the rest

It’s very rare that I meet another Krista. When I do…her name is usually spelled Christa, so when I met Krista Wilson, I just knew we were going to be friends.
Krista and I met via one of the local non-profit groups we both volunteer with. Not only do we have the same name and share a passion for community and local history, but we’re both entrepreneurs too! Krista runs delish. She is a caterer and personal chef. What a delicious career?! Hearing about her catering business, I had to share her story with you, so let’s get to it!… Read the rest
