Stitch Fix Review - February Box

Oh-oh, how did I forget to post about my my February box from Stitch Fix?! I must have been super excited to wear my fix. February's fix came during a busy birthday season. Having a birthday that falls at the end of the month just means I get to celebrate into the next month. I was busy going out with friends and family wearing my new clothes that my review must have slipped my mind. How long to you tend to celebrate your birthday for? I might be a little extreme when it comes to my birthday, LOL, celebrating for two months is norm, right?

For my stylist I pinned some casual outfits and sent her a note telling her I was looking for clothes to that were comfortable to chase my kids in and were going to be good for Spring. I'm so ready for Spring to be here. Chicago was teased for a couple of weeks with some unseasonably warm weather, but that went away last week and it snowed, and rained, and today we are officially in Spring and its gloomy. Yep, typical Chicago weather. Are you ready for Spring? What do you plan on adding to your wardrobe? 

Skies are Blue Becky Cutout Detail Blouse in Orange - $44
My stylist knows I like bright colors, so seeing this blouse made me happy. I loved the pattern and way the orange popped. I paired it with burgundy pants to have some of the darker color on the blouse stand out since I was wearing it in the winter.  Target has a cute tank top that is similar here.

Fitness Meets Fashion at Fashion Outlets Chicago

How are your fitness goals from New Year's resolutions going? Mine aren't horrible. In the last three months I've lost 7 pounds from just changing what I eat a little, and walking more everyday. I have really cut back on fast food and soda. I think I'd have a little more motivation to do more if my husband decided to come home one day and say, "Honey, get ready to pack your bags in six weeks because we are going on a beach vacation".  Yep, that would definitely get me to do a lot more. 

You know what else motivates me? Shopping! Getting ready to work out means I get to go shopping, because, well I've got to look good doing it, right? Last week I was invited to Fashion Outlets Chicago to check out the many stores they have geared towards health and fitness. 

1. Le Creuset

We were treated to some delicious cooking from Chef Corey Rice, from Master Chef Season 7, thanks to Le Creuset. Sorry no photos, I was too excited and it was my first stop. I've always wanted one of those pots, but I don't do enough cooking to get one for myself...yet. But they do have a lifetime guarantee, and are significantly less at the outlet than at retail. Plus you'll find seasonal items marked down even more. I was very close to purchasing Valentine's day items. Having the right cooking tools can motivate you to eat healthier.

How To Plan For A Fun Oscars Party in 6 Steps


The 89th Academy Awards will be held on Sunday, February 26, at the Dolby Theatre® at Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood, and will be televised live by the ABC Television Network at 7:00 p.m. EST/4:00 p.m. PST. The show will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. So what better way to watch the show than with your friends. Why not throw a viewing party. Here are some quick tips to get you started.

1. Invite your friends.
The more the merrier. Give them the star treatment by setting up a "red carpet" and taking tons of photos. Don't forget the swag bags!

2. Dress to Impress.
Have your friends dressed in their best attire, ball gowns are encouraged, but not necessary. I'll be wearing this cute blouse from Who What Wear to keep with the gold theme. 

3. Decorate!
Golden is key! I got a ton of gold colored decorations from Target. Use balloons, plates, streamers, etc to get Oscar ready. You can even find cute Oscar statues and Hollywood themed decoration at your local party store. Amazon also has you covered with gold party supply bundles!
