Ok, today I'm featuring a very important Stylin Mommy.  She doesn't even know she is being featured...This Stylin Mommy is a mommy-to-be and she is about 7 months pregnant with her first baby girl. She is a friend of mine that I love! She is pretty much the funniest and one of the happiest girls to be around. Recently she was just diagnosed with brain cancer. A biopsy was performed and the tumor was stage 3/4 brain cancer. Her pregnancy prevents her from being able to start treatments right away but she has seemingly taken the news with stride, never once stopping to pity herself. She is such an incredible mom and person and if you were to ever read any post of mine I hope this would be the one.

A GiveForward page has been set up for her and if you can help and donate to this sweet couple please do so. They are both college students and I'm sure anything you can do would help. I love you so much Kassi!  You and your sweet baby and husband are in my thoughts and prayers constantly!

Hi, I’m Rachel from Brachel Boulevard! I’m a twenty-something Mom of two & I’m married to Mr. Right (Mr. Brandon Wright to be exact).  The term "Brachel", our self-proclaimed celebrity couple name, started as a joke but it has come to represent all of the amazing things we have done together as a couple. Over the last four years of marriage we have visited 12 countries, lived abroad once and are about to do it again, this time with our two darling children. Although "Mom" is by far my favorite title, I am also a genealogy buff and travel enthusiast.

One of my biggest fashion philosophies is to buy classic pieces expensive and trendy stuff cheap. Or,a better option, ask for trendy items as gifts (birthday, Christmas...Mother's Day is coming up ladies!) That way I don't feel "wardrobe guilt" after a trend goes out of style after a few years. This philosophy has worked out great for me and kept me within my Mom budget.

When I think of neon I think of vibrant, summer, and fun! Okay, I also think about a John Mayer song, I listened to in High School but thats not important. When the neon fashion trend hit the scene big in 2012 I was a bit hesitant but after I started sporting some bright accessories, I fell in love. The neon waves have completely taken over my Summer wardrobe!

The Big 28

Friday, May 10, 2013

So yesterday I turned the big 28.... It's weird getting older because inside you feel like you're 17.  I feel like I'm not acting any older just looking like it.... it's kind of a drag. :) It was a great day though spending time with my fam. 
So right now I'm just loving the floral pants. Well anything floral. It's a fun feminine trend that I just can't get enough of! I am also loving this new jewelry I was introduced to called City Glam. She has some of the cutest jewerly and so unique. Great prices too! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend. I will be enjoying this beautiful weather!!

My name is Melissa, I am a stay at home mom of 3 little kids, ages 6, 4 1/2, and 1.  They definitely keep me on my toes, but I love being able to stay at home with them. I am a girly, girl who loves trying new trends and finding a good pair of wedges to help me feel a little more feminine!  It took me having 3 babies to realize that it IS important for me to take time for myself. I know its not realistic for us mommies to get super dressed up every day, but nothing makes me feel a little bit better than a few curls in my hair, and slapping on some lipstick and earrings! When I feel good, I know I am a better mom. And there is nothing wrong with taking a few moments for ourselves!!  Plus I think it is so important for our kids to see us having good self-esteem as well!  I also started blogging over at as an outlet for me, and it has been a great way to get a little "me" time in my crazy day!!

Hammer Time

Thursday, May 02, 2013

I know I'm kinda into this black and white thing lately but it's getting better and better outside and color is coming! Ok, so you have a choice....I got my so called hammer pants on. You either love them or hate them. I choose to LOVE THEM! A PJ pant would not be any more comfortable than these bad boys. They are the best. I went out with the hubby over the weekend so I decided to dress them up a little with heals. You at least got to try some on! :)
