#TommieTough



While I had planned on putting together multiple gift guides, this weekend my best friend's daughter, and Georgia's sweet friend, Tommie, was diagnosed with High Risk Neuroblastoma. It feels completely silly to put together a gift guide when your friends are going through absolute hell.

With that in mind, if you feel generous, please donate to support them through this GoFundMe. The goal of the fund is to allow them to concentrate their efforts on getting Tommie well, and don't have to worry about money. We are also working towards bracelets and t-shirts in the future.

I've also decided to run the Pittsburgh Marathon in May, in support of the UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation, where Tommie is receiving treatment, and my amazing niece, Cameron, receives care and has benefitted from the Down Syndrome Center. I've set a goal to raise $550 before the Marathon on May 5th. I'll be sure to share the story of my training as that gets underway. It's been a long time since I ran 26 miles, but it feels like the perfect time to raise some money in support of this hospital we are so lucky to have in Pittsburgh.

Gifting Guide: The Girl Who is Hard to Shop For



When I was in high school, I used to design gift guides for my parents in PowerPoint, complete with link, size, and color preference. Little did I know that would essentially become an entire industry, so here I am. I recognize I'm tough to shop for, so why not start with a gift guide almost exclusively for my husband and family? Here's what I'm hoping for!




1. Golden Goose Superstar Sneakers: such a splurge but I seriously love the pair I have. Also all these different prints just make me so happy!

2. Fancy a Shag Fringe Cardigan: so easy to toss on and look immediately put together.

3. Women's Supersoft Supima raw-edge Shirt: could really use about 6 of these.

4. Eva Jeweled Mule: fun to dress up or down.

5. 9" High-Rise Toothpick Jean with Cut Hem: awesome everyday denim.

6. Ribbed Beanie with Faux-Fur Pom-Pom: I have this from a few year's ago and Georgia has stolen it and made it hers! Such a great bold color.

7. 6-Pack Trefoil Superlite No-Show Socks: anyone else in desperate need of new socks? The quintessential stocking stuffer.

8. Smooth Ball Chain Leather Belt: it's not easy to find a great belt and this has the perfect blend of edgy & cool, at an awesome price point too.

9. Madewell Leopard Dot Flannel Bedtime Pajamas: I bought these for myself. The leopard is just SO good! And they have this print in tons of other options on Madewell's site.

10. Apple Watch - Space Gray Aluminum Case with Black Sport Band: Jeff got me an Apple Watch a few years ago for Mother's Day. I dropped it on our kitchen floor, it shattered (so sad!), and I never replaced it. Every time I start a barre class and clients are setting their watches up, I am jealous. I'm dying for a new one!

11. Fringe-Sleeve Pullover Sweater: More fringe! Obsessed with this color too. Perfect for the transition to spring and will look adorable with white denim!

12. Lululemon Turn & Twist Tank Light: saved the majority of my activewear for another post, but I'm dying for the cut of this and I love the peekaboo on the side to show off a great sports bra. How amazing is this color?

13. Penny Top: perfect with the belt & jeans above, love this for a night out!

14. Cubic Zirconia Earringsconstantly in need of new everyday earrings & these look like the perfect amount of sparkle.

15. Luminosity Foil Print Black Silver: loving the metallic look and this is my favorite cut of Lululemon leggings (though I usually lean towards the 7/8 option!).

16. Side Stripe Funnel-Neck Pullover Sweater: I bought this set and I seriously LOVE it. The best for everyday casual wear and it elevates my sweats look in a serious way!

18. Evie Swing Sweatshirt: how amazing is the shape of this sweatshirt? 

19. Rainbow Evie Swing Sweatshirt: same deal, but loving the colors on this. Perfect year-round!

20. Deerupt Runner Sneaker: let's face it, most days I am in leggings and hoodies and these look amazing for running errands in!

21. At The Disco Hoop Earrings: I've been waiting to dive into hoop earrings, and these are the perfect blend of bold shape and fun design.

22. Manière Kay Velvet Knot Headband: I got a velvet knot turban and my head is way too big for that stuff. It ended up pulling my hair back and looking super weird when I wore it... this headband cures all that!

Hoping to get the activewear gift guide out in the next few days! Xo!
