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…)

Lizzy’s Latest – Steve Madden Slithur Caged Sandals

wed-1-img_1358-finalThis photo shoot continues our tour of the Petersburg National Battlefield.  This time we took pictures in an area where a handful of men from the Union army clandestinely dug a mine that reached the Confederate lines.  Once under the Confederate position, the mine was filled with explosives and detonated!  The explosion caused the Earth to tremble propelling Confederate men and artillery into the air and creating a huge crater that was at least 30 feet deep and approximately 120 feet wide!  (more…)

Petersburg, VA – The Crater – Unexpected Surprises

Sometimes, life’s wonderful moments happen unexpectedly.  About a month or so ago, my friend, Bill, surprised me.  He said he would be in my area attending his older brother’s pinning ceremony for promotion to Colonel in the United States Air Force!  I was so happy for Bill and his family because many years before, their father had a similar pinning ceremony when he was promoted to Colonel.  Their military service had come full circle and I can only imagine the pride and joy beaming from their hearts as Stephen was pinned.

I am a girly-girl at heart.  So, I could not help, but fall in love with these fringe lace ups by Steve Madden.  They are the epitome of sexy!  The flirty fringe at the toe strap is so playful that I found myself stretching my legs in a dramatic walk to catch a glimpse of the ever so subtle swoosh of the fringe.  😉  What adds glamour to this sandal is the approximately 4.25 inch heel (pretty high even for me) and the ankle strap lace ups.  I love the tassel detail at the end of the lace ups too.  It adds such a nice touch to this gorgeous heel.  (more…)

In less than two weeks, my BFF, Tammy, and I will be on our way to Savannah, GA!  Hard to believe, but Tammy has never been to the East Coast or the South.  Her biggest anxiety is the thought of mosquitoes eating her alive because she is very prone to getting bit.  We always joke she has sweet blood!  😉  I told her not to worry because I will bring the bug spray.  🙂

Hello, Spring!  I am happy that Winter is behind us now.  I’m looking forward to wearing shorts, summer dresses, and everything in between again.  🙂  I’ve already started my Spring/Summer shoe shopping list (no purchases yet because it’s still Lent!) and it seems like lace up shoes are having a moment.  I see them everywhere now which makes the Steve Madden Sambaa lace up heels so relevant.      (more…)

One concept I would love to learn more about is affiliate marketing for bloggers.  I believe this is an important tool in promoting my brand and reaching new audiences.  My blogger friend, Eccentric Owl, has a great post on affiliate marketing and I wanted to share her post with you.  For now, because of lack of time, I rely on word of mouth advertising from family and friends.  I also post on social media sites like Instagram and Facebook.     (more…)

Don’t you love it when you find an outfit (or a pair of shoes) you weren’t expecting to find?  In fact, you weren’t even looking for it.   Then, in a moment of serendipity you end up with something new to bring home.      

That’s what happened to me when I found this super cute romper.  Let me explain… (more…)
