Small Town Adventures & Buying Nearby


Buying Nearby

I’ve been making the most of my weekend mini travels in Michigan, most recently hunting down the tack and products I need to get back into the horseback riding game. And while I’ve glanced at the online shops, it’s just the most fun experience to visit the locally owned tack shops in quaint towns. And it completely fits with one of my favorite clients, Michigan Retailers Association’s Buy Nearby campaign. It’s fun when my day job intersects with my blog and I can promote something I care about–like supporting regional/local shops.

I’ve spent the last three weekends touring any and all tack shops to better understand what we have here in Michigan when it comes to riding gear, tack, feed and supplies. There’s really nothing I love more than a little road trip and shopping and most recently, my mom and I made a trip to Sparta and Grand Rapids. For the horse and small town enthusiasts, read on for a few of our stops and favorite places! Read More »

What I Wore For Botox Injections

I styled this matching set for a jaunt over to Grand Rapids to the Urban You for my first botox appointment. The cropped bell sleeve top was a little long on my short torso so I tied it up and paired with these 70s inspired platform sandals. Read More »

Winter Boho

I’m not much for romance. Never have been. My boyfriends in high school would leave flowers in locker and I’d ask “how the FUCK did you get my locker combination?” or they thought it was cute to pop by unannounced at my home to bring me a rose and I would toss the dude and the flower out. I was in my teens and a big(ger) asshole then, but I still hate cliche romantic gestures. Fill up my gas tank up with the cost of those stupid flowers instead. Read More »

Styling a Bell Sleeve Mini Dress

With short legs and a love for anything bell sleeve, this sweet little mini dress spoke to me on a web site page. When I got it in the mail, I realized it was a lot more sheer than I thought, very low cut and the material is reminiscent of doctor and nurse scrubs. I’ve had it in hanging in the closet for months now and finally found the right slip dress (and black lace bralette not pictured) to wear underneath. Read More »
