When the Vacation Ends …

Post vacation Mondays are pretty much like getting gum on not just the bottom, but the side of your shoe. They suck. Epically. I know, because I’m living one. After arriving home at midnight from spring break bliss (more to come on that soon), I woke up to deadlines, unpacked suitcases, a request from the realtor to see the house, mountains of laundry, a dead houseplant (sorry, Mother Nature) and nothing to eat or drink in the fridge. Calgon, er, Aveda, take me away. I have a stash of Aveda Chakra Balancing Body Mists for such occassions. My gift set has all seven of the offerings. You, however, can purchase individuals here.

My junior year I ditched my date, “borrowed his car” and ended up taking my prom pic with my best friend instead. Turns out her date was a dud, too. In the end, we had a blast. Two girls in gowns taking over the town. Our dresses were stunning. Beautiful. Amazing. We were Thelma and Louise in gowns. Prom and dresses. That’s such a huge part of a girl’s life. Here’s how you can contribute to that: Style Saves, the amazing organization that uses fashion to care for kids in need, is doing a little something called Project Prom, where it will dress more than 300 students and send them off to prom night. Here’s where you come in: See this dress I have on? It’s so cha-cha-cha delicious. I love it….Read More
