Ski Style

I've been raiding the website and shopping up a storm at  Saint Bernard this week in preperation for our ski trip in February!  They made it so easy to get ready with these  fantastic checklists!  They took all the stress out and added loads of style too!  What do you think of the ski look I picked out?

1. Spyder Endure Full Zip Midweight Core Sweater - Love the weight and the full zip so that I don't have to pull anything over my head!

2. This Helly Hansen Women's Warm Ice Crew  came highly recommended by the experts and according the weather forecast, I'll be putting it to the test!

3. These Smith Snow Goggles have the prettiest sheen. 

4. I can't wait to break in this Bogner Kiara Jacket.  I love the simple design and the best part is the built in layers with the removable jacket underneath!

5. Erin Snow Isla Pant - I'm obsessed with these ski pants that have a fresh boot cut and that perfect flattering seam down the front.  The back zip is fabulous too!

6.  I love the Nordic/Fair Isle inspired design of this Obermeyer Cabin Knit Cardigan

7. Helly Hansen Women's Warm Pant make the perfect base layer and aren't bulky under your ski pants or slacks for Apres Ski. 

8. Smith Compass Helmet - Safety First!

9.  Smart wool Socks in Medium width are comfy and padded to perfection.  

10.  The Bogner Beanie is perfect for a lunch stop when I will want to cover my helmet hair!

11. Hoping these Swann Arctic Mittens will keep my fingers warm. 

12.  Why ski if you aren't going to GoPro?  I can't wait to watch footage of my kid-os!

13. I never thought I would say that ski equipment could be elegant but these Komperdell Carbon Pure White Ski Poles certainly are!

14. So excited to get back on Skis!

This post was brought to you in partnership with Saint Bernard, a resource I love!  I hope you enjoy the post as much as I enjoyed putting it together for you.

Apres Ski Style

I'm still packing for for our ski trip next week!  Can't wait!  
Yesterday I shared my ski look with you but the best part of any ski trip is Apres Ski!  Here is my packing list for my time off the slopes.

14 Days of Valentines

12. Heart Snapshot Mix Frame

Wednesday, January 20, 2016


I had a little giggle to myself today because I was asked to speak at an upcoming conference on work/life balance and keeping organized.  Just as I was pondering that,  I opened my package from Minted with my personalized Valentine tags! Why is that funny?  Well, the Valentine tags are actually going to be attached to the Christmas gifts that I didn't ever get out to my friends this year because, clearly, I haven't managed to master the work/life balance thing! 

Oh well!  Better late than never I think and even better-better with these darling tags!

While I was ordering my gift tags, I let Millie pick out these precious french bull dog classroom Valentines.  We always give out little Whitman's Chocolate Hearts so I also ordered her cute little co-ordinating stickers to mark the gift bags that the chocolates will go in.

She "personalized" them a little bit and acted like she was writing the names of her friends in her classroom because she wants to everything that her big brother does!  

Speaking of JR, he could not contain his joy when we searched for "hockey Valentines" and he found this one!  He is seriously obsessed with his "Let's stick together" cards because he was able to put his favorite photo with a few of the Dallas Stars hockey players on the back of it!  He found some co-ordinating stickers to personalize that will seal his red paper bags of Whitman's Sports Theme Chocolates. 

So, instead of seeing this project as a catch up from being late for Christmas, I've decided to look at it as being ahead of the game for Valentine's Day!
