By Kayla / May 29, 2015

I’m almost 1 month into my first capsule wardrobe experiment. I started with my Summer 2015 capsule wardrobe on May 1 and I plan to keep it around until August 31 for a total of 4 months. So far, I’m still loving my first capsule. I haven’t really felt limited other than when I had […]


Money Matters at Every Age

By Kayla / May 29, 2015

Money matters change as we grow. When you are a teenager, you may be worried about saving for college, buying a car or hanging out with your friends.

Having Pets Can Help You Stay Healthier

By Kayla / May 27, 2015

Ever since I can remember, I’ve always had a pet. Growing up, my family always had at least one dog and after we moved to the farm when I was 13 we acquired some barn cats, cows, sheep, and we even had a couple of pigs from time to time (though some of these things […]

My Summer 2015 Capsule Wardrobe

By Kayla / May 12, 2015

Ok, I admit it. I’ve been teasing you with bits and pieces of information about my Summer 2015 capsule wardrobe. Although most years I probably won’t start my summer capsule quite this early, I decided to this year because I just couldn’t wait until June to get my first ever capsule wardrobe started! After going […]

I’ve officially decided to start my first capsule wardrobe and I also started a little sooner than I originally planned. I started on May 1st instead of June 1st.

Where Do You Find Fashion Inspiration?

By Kayla / April 28, 2015

After stumbling upon a new-ish (to me) concept for fashion and wardrobes last week, the Capsule Wardrobe, it’s all I’ve been able to think of lately. It’s not that I hadn’t heard of a Capsule Wardrobe before, it’s more that I didn’t understand how to achieve a Capsule Wardrobe or the benefits of living with […]


It’s Almost Swimsuit Season! Here are the Best Suits for Your Body

By Kayla / April 22, 2015

I know, I know. It’s only April. But summer will be here before you know it. (I swear!) In my part of the country, our spring is usually a very short season. We basically go from winter to summer with only a week or two of mild spring-like temperatures and weather in between. So while […]


How Many Handbags Do You Own?

By Kayla / April 15, 2015

As you all know, I’ve been working on pairing down my clothes and accessories the last couple of years. (Slow and steady wins the race people!) One area I cut down significantly is the number of handbags and purses I own. When I started my mission to simplify my life and my closet, I owned […]
