A giveaway?!

I thought that in honor of the last day of summer and

to celebrate the upcoming harvest season, I’d have a giveaway!

How does that sound?!

And up for grabs is a super-cute luggage tag from Rebecca Ray Designs! (Perfect for those winter trips you are all planning!)

The tag I picked is below….

Look of the week…kinda.

This week’s look is not 100% accurate. I mean….I LOVE this look, but didn’t really research it because it’s not me. I would never be able to pull this off out on the farm. But I still WISH I could…..and that counts for something right?!

My new style icon…

I fell in love with this woman after seeing a picture of her….I had no idea who she was or why she was in the magazine.



Since then I have learned that she is Iris Apfel, an 88-year-old textile designer, who is just now coming into her own as a style icon. She is over the top, confident and fabulous!!






I adore this video interview with her….LOVE HER!

Copper Love…

Since I am now in love with this thing they call Copper (where have you been all my life?!) I think I might make this a reoccurring post…what do you think?
Today’s Copper Love is all from D&G…pricey but gorgeous!

New music…

Remember this song?

Back when it first came out, Garth Brooks received a bunch of flak over it. It wasn’t country enough, he shouldn’t have put it out…blah, blah, blah. Pretty sure his career suffered for it. (Not really.)

Recently Sugarland launched this song….

And they are receiving their share of haters….

What do you think?

I personally love it….change is fun!
