Today I have put together a sexy date look that is perfect for any night. I’ve been asked by you ladies what is my favorite date look. That’s a tough question. It depends on the boy, the place and the day of the week. This would be my weekday look. For Saturday dates, a dress is a must. Sunday dates are perfect for that cute maxi.
It’s fall time and the pop of deep reds and gold make this look come together. These Joe’s skinny black pants and this Chloe black blazer are the key essentials for a fashionista. Both are items that you should splurge on. Every girl needs a black clutch. I found this Maison Pebbled Foldover Clutch at Neiman Marcus, super cheap. Put this all together and you can’t go wrong. Want to make my look yours?
Today’s street style guide is brought to you by Jessica Alba. This outfit fits any day, at anytime and for any purpose. Jeans and a blazer are a must in any fashionista closet. Pair is with a great flat and this look is complete. I found you lovelies a great inexpensive ballerina in which you can get below. This outfit is perfect for Christmas shopping…yes…it’s that time. What is your favorite shopping style?

I love when the weather outside becomes crisp enough to wear a sweater with shorts. Kourtney Kardashian is always seen in this look. The best part, you can wear any pair of shorts and mix-match it with any style of sweater.
I don’t think this is a trend that will ever really go out of style. I’ve been doing this since high school.
Upon request I have finally put together a quick blog on how to get my fresh look. It’s really very simple. Truth, it’s a combo of great brushes and better product. Sure, you can get drugstore brands. I am not knocking that. In fact I am working on a great post for just those fab items. In this case, I recommend going for the top dollar items. At least this is what I prefer.
I love make up and depending on the occasion I may go all out. For sake of saving some blogging for later, this is just my dewy look. This includes mostly cheeks. Here is the look I would tend to throw together for sunday brunch or a client meeting.
Many of you have asked what my nightly routine is. Finally, here it is. I am in a Kiehl’s obsession right now. I even use their shampoo and conditioner sometimes. I’ll save that one for another blog entry.
Cleanser: I’ve used Obagi for years, but I like to change product from time to time. After a while, my skin gets used to a certain product and the product just doesn’t work like it once did. So right now I’m using Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser. It’s lightweight and gets my skin extremely clean without any harshness.
Eye Cream: I consider this the most important step. If I have a daughter, this will be a must in her nightly regimen. “Natural brighteners instantly smooth and illuminate the area around the eyes.” I use Kiehl’s Since 1851 Rosa Arctica Eyeas my nightly cream because I like how it’s heavier than my morning cream. I like that feeling of deep moisturizing in the evening, but if that just isn’t your thing, try the Kiehl’sRosa Arctica Light.
Moisturizer: For my nightly routine, I use Kiehl’s Since 1851 Ultra Facial Moisturizer. It’s a little on the heavy side, but without being greasy. I can’t stand that ick feeling of a greasy moisturizer. If you take away one thing from this entry, let it be this: ALWAYS MOISTURIZE. Did you know that keeping your skin moisturized is the key to preventing breakouts?
Lip Moisturizer: You can’t forget the sweetest part of your face. I am a lip moisturizer junkie. Yes, I finish an entire tube. How many of you can actually do that before losing it or having it go old? Taking care of your kisser should be a natural thing you do right before going to sleep. Once you get into this habit, you will begin to notice a difference.
Good morning everyone. Here we are again…it’s Monday! Hopefully we can all “Blazer Through The Week.”
The look: Today I’ve put together some great blazers as we head into the fall season. Just because we see them on celebrities doesn’t mean we have to spend those extreme prices. With that said, it’s always nice to spurge on one or two.
Ways to wear your blazer:There are lots of ways and places to wear your blazer. The big trend all over the fashion world is wear a blazer that sits on your shoulders, arms out. It’s the perfect professional look. Friday night date? Perfect time to add an extra layer. Pair a blazer with a dress, jeans and even shorts.
While in Miami why not get a fabulous Miami color, Cute as a Button by Essie. Since my nail are in desperate need of a break from Shellac I decided to go with the traditional manicure. Try Em on Alton in South Beach. Jennifer is amazing! Thank you
Hot, Sexy and Spunky. ALL UNDER $75. This outfit won’t stand a chance this weekend. My latest obsessions are bright lipsticks.MAC, Lady Danger has to be one of my favorite reds. they last the longest. Trust me…I’ve tried them all. The hottest trend, I can’t get enough of, the crop top. You can’t beat this perfect, Sexy Deep Blue Zipper top. It goes with everything. Pair is with a comfy pair of pants and this fab necklace and you’re sure to make a few heads turns.
We have arrived to the best time of the year to shop. Here are some new must have inspiration items that every gal much have in her closet. I may go a little crazy this shopping season. Here are my latest and greatest. Love it!
Celebrating our Grand Opening! Here is look #4 I put together for you from “love it Store.” This is the Black Halo dress you saw me wear on The Bachelor…the dress I went home in. Yeah, I figure I won’t be wearing it again. The Ray Ban sunglasses were purchased and I never wore them. You’ve seen me in these earrings as well. You will love all three of these items, I did.
I’m excited to announce that I’ve finally decided on a charity to support. This wasn’t an easy task. I wanted to find something close to my heart; something where I could personally make a difference. After being presented with over a hundred options and much deliberation, I’ve decided to support Parks Youth Ranch.
Concern: “Imagine you are in middle school. You go to school like any other day but when you get off the school bus and walk home you find your house locked, all your family belongings gone and a quickly written note from your mother taped to the door saying she has left with her boyfriend and is not coming back. You are 14, abandoned and homeless.”
Facts about Youth Homelessness:
According to the Texas Hotline site, over 100,000 youth between the ages of 7 and 17 run away annually in our state.
These kids are not running to something but away from abusive homes, peer pressure, sexual abuse, difficulties with parents, problems in school, substance abuse, mental health issues or they are often thrown out of their homes.
The National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty uses the term unaccompanied youth to refer to “young people under the age of 18, who are living apart from their parents or legal guardians in unstable or inadequate living situations.”
Unaccompanied youth are more likely to drop out of school, become pregnant, have health problems, abuse drugs and alcohol, commit crimes have mental health problems and become victims of crimes themselves.
Many exist by crashing with friends and hopping from couch to couch.
Some even pool resources and stay in seedy motels or apartments.
Others live on the streets, our streets
I thank God for places such as this. I have to be honest with you, this could have easily been me. My mother gave me up for adoption as a small child. I wasn’t adopted until I was 6 years old. It’s less likely for a child to be adopted past the age of 3. Most parents want a baby. If Bruce and Deborah (my adopted parents…”REAL” parents) hadn’t taken me in and given me life…I could have been homeless too.
God has blessed my life beyond belief. I’ve been given an amazing opportunity to gain such a wide audience. With this gift, I want to give back in honor of Him, Christ. That’s why I’ve decided to donate a portion of the proceeds from my calendar sales to Parks Youth Ranch. Help me reach a goal of $2,000. It’s a high goal, but I know it’s reachable. However, I can’t do it on my own…I need your help. It’s not about me; it’s about helping children in need. Together, we can make a difference.
AshLee Frazier, founder of “love it Organized” is now bringing you love it Store. There you will find a variety of gently used designer and high-end brand clothing and accessories, including designers Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci, Burberry, Valentino, Tory Burch, Pucci and more.
While working for her company, “love it Organized,” AshLee discovered that many of her clients were throwing away or giving away high-end items when they were cleaning out their closets and organizing. Having trouble finding a consignment store to fit her needs, AshLee decided to omit the middle man and develop an online store to allow people to purchase these items at a discounted rate.
Each quarter, the store will have a featured person and will highlight that person and their items on the front page of the website. The love it Store inventory will be rotated frequently in order to accommodate all of the items that AshLee has available.
Memberships are also available, ranging from $9.99-$14.99 per month.

“Just as chic the second time around. Love it. Own it.”
You don’t have to be a wife to live as a Proverbs 31 woman.
I have read this scripture a thousand times. All my life I have wondered, “how will I ever be this woman? She is perfect. I am not.”
My quiet time is often spent studying this “virtuous woman”. In the past, I kept asking God to help me become the flawless woman I thought he intended me to become. My heart yearned to be that woman so in return I could be the wife my future husband would want me to be, the mother that my children would rise up and call blessed. However, the last time I read this scripture, something was different. It was as if the Heavens had parted and God was telling me in an audible voice, “that isn’t what it means.” I didn’t understand. My whole life I had thought God wanted me to be perfect. So I read the scripture again and again and again. Finally, it clicked. It’s not about perfection. It isn’t about having the cleanest home, the “perfect” meal on the table, the “perfect” family, or even the “perfect” life.
It’s about grace! It’s having humility in the middle of a struggle. It’s about showing those around you the same mercy God has shown to us. We perceive this woman as perfect because God lives within her. Her faith isn’t in life or what she is surrounded by, but merely in God her Father. She fears the Lord and daily walks by His side.
This is how we become the Proverbs 31 “perfect woman”. Walk in His light. Fear not what the world can bring against you. Show compassion for a hurting world. Be a true lady full of elegance, class and grace.
Thank you to everyone who made this past Friday such a success.
Friday 13th was once considered a scary day in the 80′s. It’s a new century and things have changed. Now that we are all grown up, it is no longer a night of terror. This past Friday 13, 2013 was anything but scary. It was a night of laughter, love, amazing company and full of new memories.
Cheers to all that came out and showed your love. Special thank you to those that I wasn’t able to meet.
Round two…September 28, 2013…Calendar release party at Estate. See you there.

We all remember that day. We all remember where we were. The lives so drastically taken from us have not left our hearts. They say time heals all wounds. Does it really or does it just make it easier to cope? We as a country will never be the same. So let’s take this time to reflect on our own personal lives. If you need to make it right with someone, do it. If you need to forgive, forgive. Let’s all hug one another tighter, kiss one another softer and love one another deeper. You can’t predict the future and life can be taken away in the blink of an eye. This is the time to reflect back on life. Where were you then and how will you make tomorrow better?

Exposing yourself, being vulnerable, and opening up has to be one of the scariest things a human can do. Why is it we often times resist great opportunities because we are scared? Is one reason because we don’t surround ourselves with positive people?
No one can do things alone. Layering your life with solid people will ultimately will effect you. Entrusting yourself with positive people is key. Once you surround yourself with people that believe in your dreams you might actually believe in the small ideas that turn big. No great battle was ever won without great struggle. Keep dreaming big. Love one another. Build up each other. Don’t assume the worst in people. There’s enough hate in the world. How will you set yourself apart?
Behind the makeup and the smiles, I am just a girl who wishes for the world.
There is something magical that happens when you add color to the end of a brush and sweep in onto your face… Or find the perfect hue to give your lips a little pout! My love affair with makeup began when I was a little girl. I always admired a well put together lady, loved playing beauty shop and was enchanted on the beauty isles of a store… It hasn’t stopped since. I appreciate bold colors, delicate shimmers, soft glows, full lashes, bright hues and natural looks. Whatever the day calls for… The art of makeup can polish a look.
Photo shoots are one of my favorite excuses to get dolled up. Texas girls look no further- I found the best artist around. Ana Bazan is a talented makeup artist with a healthy dose of perfectionism and she takes my pickiness in stride. Her artful eye finds the perfect palette and she makes it rock. Ana Bazan took the creative vision for my 2014 Calendar and designed an artful beauty look to grace the pages. Love her!
As most of you know, I’m always looking for a new activity. The idea of a calendar just popped into my head one day and I thought, ‘why not?’
Who knew all the long hours and work that would have gone into creating one? Once I started, I couldn’t stop. This has been, without question, the funniest, coolest and sexiest project I have done to date.
In this calendar, you’ll find all sorts of themes along with one BIG surprise you won’t expect nor see coming. Not only that, but you get 14 months, starting in November 2013. That’s right, 14 months. So if 12 months of me isn’t enough to scare you away, I also included two “bonus” months. You’re welcome.
Now, the thought of seeing my face for 14 straight months might not appeal to everyone; I get it, trust me. But, I am confident that the unique and striking artistic quality of each of these photographs will be something that anyone can appreciate.
I have been asked why I would want to do a calendar. What I can say is that it’s not about fame, notoriety or pleasing anyone. Rather, it’s about being creative and showing the fun, loving side of me. That is a huge side of me that you all didn’t get to see during my season on The Bachelor. Believe it or not, I do LOVE having fun and don’t take things too seriously. I love people and love to laugh. It’s the soul part of my heart.

One thing I love in life is when something is so funny that it makes it hard to breath, you begin to cry followed by your cheeks hurting.
Have you ever been in a quiet place and something strikes you as funny and it’s completely the wrong time to laugh?
How about that one relationship where you can simply look at the other person and laughter breaks out?
Sharing a smile with a stranger holds power. Laughing with one another creates a bond. If we would all take a step back and not take things so serious this world would be a better place. Hearts would heal. Bullies would have no place to stand!
Laugh, love, share a smile today.
P.S. …or you could simply go on a reality show, be at the mercy of editors…then you’re forced to laugh at yourself.
We have all heard the saying, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day“. That being the case, why not start the day with this healthy, quick, delicious meal.
This is the second time I’ve bought Food for Life, all natural, multi seed, gluten free muffins. At this point, regular english muffins aren’t appealing anymore. This specific muffin is by far the best I’ve ever tasted. -All who know me will tell you how extremely picky I am when it comes to food.
Even those of you with a selective pallet will find this recipe appealing.
Food for Life, English Muffin (Whole Foods)
1/2 cup of egg whites
2 tbl feta cheese
teaspoon olive oil
Toast english muffins
Warm pan with olive oil
Once pan is warm add egg whites, feta cheese and arugula

How lucky am I to have been blessed with the sweetest girlfriends? Each one of these ladies have a special place in my heart.
It’s one thing to have girls that are friends. It’s another when each one supports and backs up the other.
As women we tend to compete. Let’s get together and rise above that stereo-type. Supporting each other with love is empowering.
We all know the famous site, Match.com. Well, I’m teaming up with them. September 5th, I will be at Sen in New York City! Spontuneous.com will be providing the “singing” portion of the evening…hey, nothing is more charming than someone who can laugh at themselves.
I can happily report to you that the 3 couples I’ve introduced to each other, all 3 got married. Not a bad track record for this bachelorette.
So, if you’re single in the city and want a little extra boost…come see me and lets find your love.
It doesn’t matter who you are, we all have struggles. Each one of us goes through them from time to time… and we think the trials are impossible to overcome. Keep your head up and remember no great battle was ever won without sacrifice.
Well, it’s that time again… Summer is coming to a close, you’re sending young adults off to college,and some of you are embarking on a journey of your own. Start the school year on the right foot, and be prepared with these dorm room essentials to make the small space a success! Take this list and check it twice… These items will make college living feel like home.
“No one has ever become poor by giving.” -Anne Frank
If you think you can’t make a difference, you can. We can all lighten a burden somehow, someway. Most of us are familiar with the giving spirit ofTOMS Shoes. Buy a pair and they give a pair to those in need.People Water is no stranger to giving back either… “For every bottle purchased People Waterwill give an equal amount of clean water to a person in need.”
As a society, we tend to take our water supply for granted because it is accessible around every corner. Next time you reach for that bottle of water, pay a little more and pay it forward by choosingPeople Water. Don’t forget… “The things you take for granted, others are praying for.” -Unknown

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: “What! You too? I thought I was the only one.”-C.S. Lewis
Every once in a while life opens new doors and a connection sparks… A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of working with a new client, Kim on a closet organizing project. I arrived to her home and was greeted by a beautiful girl named Ashley with a happy heart. Relief- loved her already!
The project at hand was one of my favorites… The closet. Our day usually begins here, and the choice we make sticks with us all day- so this is absolutely an important space. Her closet was an amazing collection filled with so many treasures and I could not wait to begin the transformation.
As work began, Ashley didn’t just sit on the sidelines or escape to her wedding plans… She sat and talked with me about life, church and of course The Bachelor. Turned out we attended the same church that I was now visiting- Kind of like a match made in heaven. Finding a new church and feeling at home can be a bit of a challenge for a preacher’s daughter… This was just the sign I needed. The project wrapped and I had made a life long friend who shared the same values and beliefs.
Sunday came around and we attended church together, dinner, and spent time with her family and friends. I was overjoyed with the fun love I was surrounded by and the good-hearted people.
God is always in control, we never know where life will take us and when he will pull you in the right direction. He knows what we need. Psalms 37:4 Take delight in The Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. NIV
Here’s to my new friend Ashley. You’re a sweet spirit and such a joy to be around. Next time- we are first in line for lobster.
