I've been part of the BlogHer network for a few years and because of various scheduling conflicts, I've yet to attend a conference. However, I think this might be my year! Not only is the conference right in my backyard in Silicon Valley, a great place for women in tech and business, BUT one of the women I look up to most in the industry is the keynote speaker...Arianna Huffington.

This years conference takes place July 24-26 at the San Jose Convention Center. BlogHer '14 is for all of you who consider yourself part of the blogosphere, men included, who want to get inspired, network, meet your favorite bloggers and learn about new products in brands. 
If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, and I know it does, get your tickets HERE, and I hope to see you there! 
By the way if you need anymore incentive to go, KERRY WASHINGTON is also speaking. I die.

I go to church regularly, so getting dressed for Easter Sunday has never really been a big deal for me. But this year Easter Sunday seemed more like an event because I gave up meat for Lent (#NoMeatForJesus) and the idea of being able to indulge again came with much anticipation. 

Anyway, I decided that I wanted a new dress for Easter, I bought one on Saturday, and guess what? I ended up wearing something I already had an my closet and I am so glad I did because this turned out to be my favorite Easter Sunday lookS. Here are a few of my past Easter Sunday looks: 201120122013

I have been on the hunt for the perfect, affordable faux fur vest, and finally after 2 years I found this burgundy beauty at American Eagle! American Eagle? Can you believe that? That is not a store I typically shop at, but through some diligent internet research, she stumbled into my life for the low-low price of $40 + free shipping. You gotta love that!

Persunmall was part of my FAVORITE THINGS GIVEAWAY last month, and my favorite thing about this company (besides their affordable prices) is that they add new styles to their website everyday! How cool is that? Currently, I'm coveting this nauticaly inspired look.

Thanks for all your kind words regarding my mouth issues. My wisdom teeth are out and I've had no complications thus far, unless you count narcolepsy and fat a$$ cheeks! Ooooo, I wish I had it in me to show you my "sedated" selfies. I had no clue I had a full on photo shoot with myself after the surgery until days later when I was looking through my pics. Classic!

Like typical Bay Area weather, winter decides to show up once spring arrives, but I'm not complaining. We need the rain, and I'll take any excuse to bring out my Hunter Boa's and bubble umbrella. Have a good week. Narcolepsy is calling me...
