Don't Worry, Baby

Tennessee is currently a very conservative state. This is America and our differences are what make this such a great country. This does mean, however, that men are voting on all things lady-related. Anything having to do with a woman's uterus or a fetus is regulated by very strict, conservative people. When I found out I was pregnant and had no insurance, this allowed me to breathe a sigh of relief. I may not be able to have insurance in this state, but my unborn fetus has m

2019 Swim

Is it just me or has the swim industry taken a dive for the worst? It's like they hit a plateau over the past three years and decided suddenly to just plummet into the deep end with zero creativity, poor styling, boring colors, and blatantly bad designs this season!

Fall/Winter Trends at Maree Pour Toi

I flew into New York City this morning and felt that familiar clutch in my chest. This city has a hold on me, even when it's cold and rainy. It's like a long lost lover whom I try to forget but time and time again, I feel that pang in my heart and I know that it still has a hold on me. It's fashion week in NYC and that always holds a special place in my memories. I went straight from the airport to the Maree Pour Toi pop-up shop downtown! My uber tinkered down slick, brick st
