Lizzy’s Latest – BCBGeneration Elle Strappy Booties

These shots were taken the same day as my torturedSoles shoot.  We finished taking pictures early for that fabulous collaboration and decided to take advantage of the beautiful Fall weather by fitting in another heel/outfit combo.  I chose the BCBGeneration Elle booties because they are so perfect for Fall!  The burgundy hue is on trend and the peep toes make it a great transition bootie for cooler weather.

Southern Maryland – Fearless

I always get nervous when I have to drive to unfamiliar places.  Fortunately, it’s not as intimidating anymore with a GPS navigator and apps like Waze to direct me.  I used both to guide me to my Aunt Lisa, Uncle Shawn, and cousin, Caroline’s house back in July. (more…)

Shoespiration – White House Black Market Ruby Suede Pumps

I recently returned from my annual girls trip with my Forever BFF, Tammy.  Adventure led us to New Orleans, LA this year.  It was a great time and I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with Tammy.  I will share the details of this trip in a future blog post, of course.  😉

Lizzy’s Latest 2017 Top 5 Fall Favorites

Fall has arrived!  I’m so excited for this time of year!  It is my favorite season.  Although, Summer’s embrace still lingers, hints of Fall are making their debut gradually.  I can feel it in the cooler mornings and nights.  I can see it at the stores as they display Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas (already!) paraphernalia.  And just last night as I drove home from work, I could smell the sweet scent of burning firewood in the air. This gradual changing of the seasons will soon gift us with the splendor of Fall foliage.  I love watching the leaves paint the landscape in brilliant hues.  It is something I look forward to every year.  (more…)

Southern MD – The Thomas Stone House – Thanksgiving Fun

What’s a Thanksgiving celebration without a little family fun?  Ever since my brother got married, we have always teased him about not cooking a turkey.  Instead he and his wife, Shannon, usually order a turkey dinner from their local grocery store.  Perish the thought…especially if you grew up in an Italian household like we did.      (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – INC International Concepts Laini Block-Heel booties

wed-1-img_3021-finalDue to the rain, we remained local for this photo shoot.  Dad and I drove to the Thomas Stone House in Port Tobacco, MD.  If you’re not familiar with the name, you’re not alone.  When I first moved to Southern Maryland, I had no idea who Thomas Stone was either.  However, I quickly learned that Thomas Stone was one of the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence.  That is quite an accomplishment for a humble planter and lawyer.

It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving is next week!  I’ve been in a festive mood since the beginning of November.  I was at the mall and Hallmark was having a special on Christmas cards.  I could not help myself, I purchased two boxes of cards knowing I would probably only need one. (more…)

The Gettysburg National Military Park is one of my favorite Civil War battlefields to explore.  It was in this area that the Battle of Gettysburg was fought over a 3-day period in July of 1863.  For this photo shoot, we headed to the Pennsylvania State Memorial located at Cemetery Ridge, the primary defensive position of the Union Army.

About one year ago, I published a post called “Confessions of a New Blogger.”  In it, I described my journey as a first time blogger and the realization that maintaining a weekly blog would be unsustainable given my other passions and desire to spend time with family and friends. (more…)

Lizzy’s Latest – 2016 Top 5 Fall Favorites

cover-shot-1The arrival of Fall, my favorite time of year, softens the blow of Summer’s adieu.  For me, routine replaces spontaneity and the countdown to Christmas begins!  🙂  Fall foliage captivates as I enjoy nature’s wandering work of art dancing all around me in vivid hues of yellow, orange, and red.  Fall’s ephemeral beauty decorates the landscape in a kaleidoscope of leaves while the aroma of firewood fills the crisp evening air, awakening the senses.              (more…)
