It’s insane to admit, but I’m still feeling the effects of wedding chaos in everyday life.  I’m constantly tired and am now fighting this annoying sore throat.  I have a suspicion it all has to do with a lack of nutrients due to the fact that I never did revisit the doctor after finding out I’m anemic.  Been thinking about possibly trying out a naturopath and finally putting effort into fixing my stomach issues.  Which is an extensive list of life long problems that are probably only heightened by my lack of iron (I’ve been a vegetarian for almost ever).  A real joy and a delight, I tell ya!  Have you ever seen a naturopathic doctor?  Any words of wisdom?

We’ve all been guilty of it.  A hot trend hits NYFW, blogs, and magazines and we’re overcome with a sense of NEED.  This often leads to us to impulse buy and sometimes it’s for such a short lived trend!  These days, I’m trying to be a little more conscious of my spending and am aiming for smarter purchases that truly reflect my personal style.  I’m also doing my best to re-wear as often as possible.

My good friend Alexandra of To Vogue Or Bust and I decided to tackle the 70’s trend with two different looks and I’m proud to say that I was able to do so without splurging on anything new!  Something as broad as “70’s style” has the ability to be created with a modern twist, and hopefully with items you already own or can find second-hand!  Take a look:
