The warm weather will be here eventually.  It’s never a bad idea to stock up on the lilacs and whites while they’re on sale in the winter.  Any of these feminine frocks can be winterized by throwing a fur jacket overtop.

You may already be “cool”, but this will make you cooler.

Maturity is an attitude and a style. A navy midi dress says “confidence” and “beauty.” It’s never too late to stock your closet with these classic styles.  Trust me, you won’t regret it.

Say Goodbye to Part of Your Childhood: All Bebe Stores are Closing

The store that was literally the source of all my slightly scandalous dresses as a teenager, is now coming to a close.  Bebe stores across North America have been struggling for a while now. Earlier this month they announced they’d be shutting down 28 stores.  Now they’ve just announced that they’ll be shutting down all stores and their online website, leaving me to wonder where I’ll buy all my overly tight, ravishingly uncomfortable, slightly gaudy dresses.  Or, maybe I already have enough??

There was a time not too long ago when I considered entering the retail landscape.  Now, I couldn’t be more deterred!  All brick and mortar stores that use to be powerhouses are now rapidly shutting stores and trying to cut costs.

So who is taking the place of all our favorite brick and mortar stores? Online retailers, including the ultimate powerhouse, Amazon.

I’ll be honest and say it’s been a very long time since I’ve set foot in a physical store, but only mere hours since I’ve visited online stores.  Okay, fine let’s be honest I was searching online stores just five minutes ago and my shopping bags are already more filled than my makeup bag.

It’ll be sad to say goodbye to the store that is practically the source of almost every bodycon dress I’ve ever owned.  But before we say goodbye to Bebe, let’s shop their remaining hot finds! Here is a list of some of their sexy items still available online:

Jean Jumpsuit ($149)

White Leather Moto Jacket ($139)

Flared Floral Trench Coat ($189)

Hot Pink Barely There Slip Dress

Floral Cami ($39)

Perfect Summer Wedding Floral Dress ($129)

Little Black Bustier Dress ($149)

White Faux Leather Cap ($19)

Pink Beaded Choker ($49)






5 Ways to Take Advantage of your Sleepless Nights

Insomnia is an unwelcome friend to many of us.  It doesn’t have to be all bad.  Take advantage of the quiet peacefulness of the evening hours.  No one’s trying to contact you; not by text, calling, or carrier pigeon.  You have total freedom to get done whatever you want to get done. While you may not have the energy you have during the day, take care of tasks that don’t require as much energy.

Blog – Some of my best ideas come to me at night when I’m sitting in bed, surrounded by nothing but darkness and silence.  Okay, probably not complete silence; I’m probably either listening to the quick witty banter of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore or wishing I was a celebrity with potty-mouth Ari Gold as my agent, but nonetheless, I’m spiritually ready to have all my inspiring ideas hit me at once.  My hands are poised over my laptop, and my brain’s ready for anything but sleep. Take advantage of this “me-time” by writing some of your best articles and promoting your online presence.


Organize your schedule for the week – Organization is key for efficiency.  Having a plan always makes me feel more productive and inspired.  Depending on how much I have to get done, I either make a general list by calendar day or list out tasks on an hourly basis.

Do some online shopping – The mall may close, but online stores are open 24/7.  You work hard during the days, treat yourself at night.  There’s nothing better than having a big box filled with new clothes arrive at your doorstep a few days later.


Read a book for pleasure –  If you’ve ever been a writer, English major or something similar, you know what it’s like to have a pile of books you have to read. When you can’t sleep at night, take that time to read something you really want to read.  It could be something completely frivolous.  Don’t read what you have to read for school or work, read what you want to read.

Organize your digital life – What does this mean?  Take some time that you wouldn’t usually take during the day to organize the pictures on your computer so that you can actually find pictures when you want them.  Organize your files and delete any files you don’t need anymore. Clean up your iTunes.

Have a good night not sleeping.
