This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Dove, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #pmgdove #DovePartner #EssentialUpgrade http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

With summer right around the corner I’ve started to think about my beauty routine (or lack there of). Looking your best isn’t just about finding the right outfit, it has to come from within. You need to have the confidence to walk the walk, without letting your perspiration do all the talking. I’m excited to have partnered with Dove to tell you all about their Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant and how it will keep you dry and confident all summer long!

Sutton Dress Of Mercer - Grey w scarf

Finding chic and affordable work wear can be a challenge. So with this styled look, I channeled my inner office self for a professional yet fashionable work look. Because I no longer work in an office, I don’t tend to suit up for the most part, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like looking professional for meetings from time to time. My grey Sutton dress is from Of Mercer, one of my favorite contemporary lines of work wear, designed to take you from desk to dinner.  Continue Reading…

How to Savor the Small Things In Life & Make Everyday Meaningful

April 26, 2016
 
Contribution By: Kacey Mya Bradley from  The Drifter Collective

Stay PassionateFor several years, I walked through my life like a zombie. I moaned at the endless demands made of me and stumbled to the coffee pot every morning. I flinched at the rays of sunlight shining through the window instead of embracing the warmth and opportunity of a new day. Somewhere along the way, I had lost the passion of living life.

Once I realized this change, I knew I had to find my way back. Now on certain days, I still stumble to the coffee pot, but I understand that it’s not about living life to the fullest. Instead, I try to appreciate what each day offers. I honor my life, by living it passionately. This is how I have learned to stay passionate throughout my life and make everyday meaningful.

For this recipe, I simply used garlic, parsley and lemon to accent this fish’s natural flavor. Continue Reading…
