HAPPY GALENTINE’S DAY BEAUTIFUL WOMEN! I have been planning this post for weeks and am SO excited. Tomorrow may be all about romantic love and your significant others, but today is all about your ladies and the amazing women all around us. I teamed up with some amazing vendors to bring you this gorgeous styled shoot – and was intentional in picking who I wanted to work with. My goal was to get to know the small business owners of St. Louis – more specifically, the women in business. I connected with Erin Stubblefield-Sexauer (if you’ve been around for awhile, she’s not a new face. We love her here on B&A) for the images, Simone Faure for the incredible desserts (I am not kidding – everything I’ve eaten of hers is to die for, and not to mention belongs in a magazine with how gorgeous they are), and Sara Ward for the stunning floral arrangement (again, magazine-worthy). Read on to discover how you can empower your favorite women today and get some inspiration for next year’s Galentine’s Day party!

Happy #BEAUTYMONDAY, fam! I’m so excited for today’s post – finally another hair tutorial! You guys ask for them all the time and I need to be better about regularly posting them for you – especially my short hair ladies. This is my TWISTED CROWN BRAID and is SO simple you will wonder why you haven’t thrown it into your routine lately (and it’s especially awesome if you have second day hair – it works even better with a little bit of texture to hold the twist in place). I’m also chatting with you about my top 3 MUST-HAVE products for beating winter dryness and keeping your hair it’s healthiest during the cold months. Let’s dive into this.
Happy FRI-YAY! I swear – February is kicking my trash! I have been struggling like crazy to keep up with everything for some reason. Ugh. Do you ever get that way? I feel like I LITERALLY cannot get ahead no matter how hard I try. #februaryfail Hopefully this next week will pick up and I can get it together – especially since I’m heading to sunny Florida for a few days to catch some rays and get some much needed Vitamin C. I am sure my funk is 99% due to the fact that the sky has been actually GREY for three months straight.
Anyways: as most of you know if you’ve been following along for a while now, my hubby and I don’t drink alcohol. Most of the time, we don’t mind and it doesn’t affect our daily lives pretty much at all. HOWEVER – during parties and special events, I like drinking something fruity and delicious and let’s be honest, I think champagne glasses are pretty. #sorrynotsorry I rounded up my top 15 BEST mocktail recipes for your Valentine’s Day parties this year – they’re appropriately pink and just as delicious as their alcoholic counterparts (or so I’m told). Fabulous for ALL ages! Let’s dive into it.
