Style Saturday: @clothesmentor Edina Collaboration

To be honest, I don’t shop consignment as much as I should. However, after my visit to @clothes_mentor_edina yesterday, that’s going to change! I tried on SO MANY things and NONE of them showed any signs of wear! It was unbelievable! They graciously provided me with a $50 gift card for this post today (and my Story posts – go check those out to see what I tried on!) and photos 1-4 show the amazing items I got! 🔘 This @loft sweater jacket fit like a dream! It will be perfect for our upcoming trip to Prague and Vienna! ($18) … Continue reading Style Saturday: @clothesmentor Edina Collaboration

Thursday Thoughts – @wallflourfoods and @dbriansdeli

I don’t often take photos of food, so I went a little crazy this morning with our catered office breakfast because bacon is just so photogenic! 🔘 @wallflourfoods catered the delicious waffles you see in several of the photos. They’re mission is “…a Minnesota Benefit Corporation committed to making amazing waffles and empowering female entrepreneurs.” How can you not love that?! They’re women-owned themselves and make the most amazing Belgian liège waffles! 🔘 @dbriansdeli catered the bacon, eggs, English muffins (not pictured) and hashbrows – which were all incredibly delicious as well! They’re locally owned and operated and believe that … Continue reading Thursday Thoughts – @wallflourfoods and @dbriansdeli

Style Sunday: @elizabeth_bae_boutique Clothing Haul

#ad #sponsored When Kim from @elizabeth_bae_boutique reached out and asked if I wanted to partner with her brand, I browsed her website and Facebook page, realized she is a local (MN) boutique that had fabulous looking clothing, so I said yes, of course! Even better was that she let me pick out the pieces I would post about to ensure that my style and the boutique’s offerings we both represented! ***Use code “Katie30” for 30% off of your order!*** (This code is valid for three (3) days after this post goes live.) What I picked out: 🔘 I have been … Continue reading Style Sunday: @elizabeth_bae_boutique Clothing Haul

Friday Favorite: Brow Wax with @nikirobisonbrows

Yes, I purposely let my eyebrows get a little (or maybe a lot…) out of control in order to get a more dramatic before and after photo. For the last couple of weeks, I had been regretting that decision, but now seeing that my planned worked, I’m so happy I did so! Over the last several years, @nikirobisonbrows has been on a mission to take my over tweezed eyebrows from barely there (photo 4) to the perfectly proportioned frame for my face. Thankfully, she has been incredibly successful in achieving that tall order and I can say, with absolute certainty, … Continue reading Friday Favorite: Brow Wax with @nikirobisonbrows

What Did I Think Wednesday: @mnbrandsforgood Gift Basket

Now that I have had a chance to test all of the products @mnbrandsforgood so generously gifted me, I wanted to give my final thoughts! 🔘 @triple_crown_bbq_sauce: I received Black Garlic and purchased, through my niece’s fundraiser, the Classic flavor. I haven’t received that order yet, but I tried Black Garlic on breaded chicken and fries last night and really enjoyed it! 🔘 @mademoisellemiel: This Honey Hot Cocoa Bomb was so much fun to consume! I heated up milk, dropped this in and enjoyed my hot chocolate! 🔘 @barehoneymn: This originally came as a set of four (4), but I … Continue reading What Did I Think Wednesday: @mnbrandsforgood Gift Basket

First Impression Friday – @tincbotanica

I grew up in a neighborhood full of kids and in a time where anytime we weren’t in school, we were outside playing. Even though we have all grown up and most of our families moved out of that neighborhood, the wonderful memories still remain. So, when I saw that one of my neighborhood best friend’s sister had started a business, @tincbotanica, I was so incredibly happy for her! And when she reached out to see if I would like to review some of her products, I said, without any hesitation, absolutely! About the company: “At @tincbotanica, our mission is … Continue reading First Impression Friday – @tincbotanica
