Happy Friday, I hope you’re enjoying a fabulous start to 2015! I’m excited to see so many of you signing up to join me for the Design A Life You Love – Blogging For A Living course! I’ve provided professional coaching to executives and business owners in “real life” for a number of years and over the last year brought this same approach to working with some fantastic bloggers for one-on-one consultations. I’m really excited to do that on a wider scale via this program – sharing strategic advice, tips, tricks and all the things I’ve learned through my blogging journey! I completed my Masters specializing in marketing and strategic advertising, so the chance to bring this strategy and knowledge to help you also grow your blog is something I’m really passionate about. If you’d like to join us, you’ll find more details and tickets here.

It’s been a big week for fashion – the People’s Choice Awards officially kicked off the 2015 awards season! I adore seeing all the gorgeous outfits, as well as hair and beauty trends.  One of the key looks was lush dark berry lip, I’ve been wearing this a lot lately myself and looove it! If we’re connected on Instagram, you may have noticed I started my new year with this lipstick crayon (in the color Napa Vineyard – can you believe it’s under $9!). I have no intention of quitting my addiction to it any time soon, lip color is such a fun way to easily change up your look and try something new!

Another major trend I noticed at the awards is pantsuits! Yes, so many stars opted to forgo the standard gown in lieu of a chic pantsuit. This is a look I absolutely adore, it’s so polished but appears effortless. Oh and it’s such an easy way to create an outfit in seconds, there’s no mixing and matching – just throw it on and go! If you also love this major trend, I’m sharing a few of my affordable favorites to shop below…
