Our Bun in the Oven

Merry Christmas everyone! Sitting with my laptop, sipping hot holiday tea and thinking of you all.

Thanks for stopping by and getting a Christmas tip and update! This time of year it is fun to add a bit more red, sparkle and shine to our fashionable selves each day. I love teaching fashion and talking all about Color, Texture, Pattern & Shine. If you notice a fun outfit put together...your eye seems to like a pop of color, a sense of pattern (or structure), different textures, & a bit of shine or sparkle.

A few inspirations for you..since we are visual people..

I love all these pieces and styles...and the pumps also come in flats!

These fun monochromatic outfits take you to layering in style and a cozy coat is a great holiday trick to pop on for that cozy layer bringing it all together.

Have fun shopping and getting inspired with a new you in the New Year!!

Cheers to you & Merry Christmas!

Here she is!

Here she is!! Little baby Carlson is on Her way! We will anticipate a bundle of Joy and love on St. Patty's day! Fun to know that Grandma Pat Ostrom will have her first Grandaughter on St. Patty's day!

It's been a long while since a post and there have been lots of good things happening in our home! Thanks for following and I hope to share life, motherhood and fashionable inspiration as the months follow us into Winter! There are so many fun "research" projects I've had on Baby clothes, products and first time mom's know exactly what I'm talking about. We know what we like...and it's all new to us!

 The Nursery inspiration is here! The Dick & Jane fabrics and the Swedish Vintage look give the platform for inspiration for our Swedish Baby Girl's Nursery! I love Hannah Anderson sweaters, tights and cuddle up PJ's..We have had this little sweater in our family. My nephew Emmett wore it on a Christmas that I will never forget! My dear and only sister, Cathi is just the best mom that I have ever known. Truly! It's a Joy to share with her and know that I have the love and support of a fellow sister and mom. We Carlson's are on a new journey and I'm feeling great these days. God is blessing our family with a gift, thanks for reading.

The girls in Dallas! eWomen Network is the most amazing women's organization. Here we are at the Evening of Chocolate Decodance! I had no idea that this was the beginning of the tired prego days. That was some of the last wine I've had in months...oh how I miss that. You can follow my gal pal's April Morse and her amazing journey since this pic on her blog. April was recently on the Nate Purkis show in NYC!!!
Also follow Shannon Crawford (in the middle ) on her journey as she Celebrates..Something to Celebrate!

For Your Green Girls

Now you can find great denim that is also eco-friendly. Many jean manufacturers are designing jeans made of such materials as pesticide-free, 100 percent organically grown cotton and bamboo as well as using recycled buttons. Ask the denim specialist at Nordstrom or Macy's; both stores offer a growing selection for those who strive to shop green, even when shopping for traditional blue jeans. Also try or Levi, which offers Levi Eco, a line of environmentally friendly denim.

Happy Shopping Green Girls,

Fashionably Yours,

Burn Calories Shopping

Go ahead & blow off the gym - you actually do burn calories shopping. You can burn 325 calories per one and one-half hour of shopping. (Estimated calories burned are based on one - and -a-half hours at a body weight of 150 pounds. Actual calories burned very with your individual body weight. The more you weigh, the more you burn.)

Or perhaps you should reconsider blowing off the gym. That's only about as many calories as two chocolate chip cookies ( prepackaged, not homemade) or one Margarita!

Room with a View

A Room with a View is what makes me smile. I love to kitchen, office, garden, closet or jewelry box. What do you like to remix? It's Spring and the blooms, blossoms are inspiring me to plant and remix. I am in the month of cleaning and purging. I actaully made room on a shelf in my closet for new additions and clear spaces inspire me! Do you clutter up things? It's fun to scale down and take a new perspective on a room, space or your place on the planet!
Until next time!

Stay Fashionable & Fun!
