All opinions are mine alone. #StickItToLint #CollectiveBias Last night I had the amazing opportunity to meet up with a very talented hair stylist in the Utah area and have my hair colored and cut by her! She had found me on Instagram and reached out, asking if we could collaborate, and after checking out her work, I knew that my hair would be in good hands. As we worked on changing up my balayage for fall and winter, we started chatting about blogging and how Hey There, Chelsie got to be where it is today. I realized that there is a lot of "behind the scenes" stuff that happens that I . . .
It's a freaking beautiful 76 degrees outside today (Monday) with a slight breeze drifting through the windows of my new office. The sun is warm and gentle and the leaves are all igniting into this vibrant yellow and it's fall. It's October. It's perfect. I'm feeling so inspired and so refreshed and am so excited to share this fun style on HTC today. I know it's been quite and sporadic on this space lately, but ever since we left Louisiana, we've been going a million miles a minute. I'll be sharing more on our new lives here in Utah soon, but things are finally, finally slowing down enough for me to brainstorm, to write, and to get back to blogging. So today, I . . .

I remember when I was a little girl going back-to-school shopping with my mom. I needed new shoes and I fell in love with a pair of white closed-toed sandals. I wanted those shoes so badly, but my mom said no for two reasons: one, I didn't need another pair of sandals (true) and two, no white after Labor Day. Even in grade school, I remember thinking that was the dumbest rule I had ever heard of and decided that when I was old enough, I would wear all the white I wanted after . . .
A product was given to me in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own! I was supposed to finally go to Hogwarts last week, but alas, a hurricane blew through Florida the day we were supposed to leave and we decided to push back our trip just to be on the safe side. After all the crazy flooding we experienced here, we decided we didn't want to risk driving through more rain. To be quite honest, I've had enough rain to last me another 3 years and I was content to stay home for few extra days and wait for the storm to pass if it meant dry travels. Anywho, Dustin and I will be heading out later this week to fulfill my childhood dream of exploring . . .
This post was in collaboration with PRIMP Network & Ink + Alloy. All opinions are my own. I've been avoiding the boho trend for months now, not because I didn't like it, but because I just wasn't sure how to make it my own. I love fringe and flowy fabrics but was finding that a lot of the boho styled clothes were just a little too revealing for my own personal taste. Being rather well-endowed in the chest region, a lot of the tops out there just weren't possible for me to comfortable wear. I had just about given up hope of every figuring out how to add some boho flair to my wardrobe when INK + ALLOY entered my life. I connected with INK + ALLOY through . . .
PR Samples: I was given pieces c/o Mo & Cho in exchange for styling. Do you ever read something that hits you out of nowhere and completely changes your perspective on life? That happened to me a few days ago when I read a quote on Instagram that said: "you weren't born to just pay the bills and die." Woah. It was so simple but so profound. Lately, Dustin and I have been so focused on paying off debt, saving up money and making some big purchases. I didn't realize that lately, my life has turned into the same predictable pattern of waking up, taking care of Rosie and Cooper, watching Netflix and making sure Dustin has a dinner to come home to. . . .
Items were provided to me by courtesy of Mo & Cho for my styling and review. All opinions are my own! I know I've mentioned before that I used to steer clear from form-fitting pants/leggings because of my left knee. To me, it's so painfully obvious that my left knee is swollen and misshapen and I didn't want to wear anything that would bring more attention to it. But, that was a couple years ago and in the last few months, I've realized this: I shouldn't let my scars limit me from wearing what I want. If I refuse to wear leggings because I'm ashamed of how my leg looks, that's letting my tumor win. I was not given a second chance at life to say no to the . . .
This post was sponsored by JCK as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. ICYMI, Dustin and I are going to be moving to Las Vegas at the end of September and I couldn't be more excited to get back to the Southwest dry air, to be closer to my family and friends and to be in a city that has so many exciting things happening! I know that Las Vegas has a bit of a reputation, but I've been doing a lot of research and reading about the city we're about to call home and there are actually a lot of great business events that happen there! One event that I was super thrilled to learn about, for example, is the nation's largest jewelry show: JCK Las . . .
I'm really behind in sharing this post, but I'm excited to finally be getting it up today! Stitch Fix and I have a love/hate relationship. I love getting mail and I love having someone pick out new clothes and styles for me to try, but minus a few select pieces, I've never gotten a box that blew my socks off. I actually took a few months off from Stitch Fix because my last box had been a pretty big disappointment. Back at the end of March, however, I decided to give it another go because it was my birthday and I hoped to get something special to spend my birthday money on. In case you haven't heard of Stitch Fix, it's a pretty fun clothing subscription service. . . .
I received complimentary product from Orvis for this review. All opinions are my own. If you follow me on Facebook, you probably saw the photo I posted a couple weeks ago of Rosie Roo. It wasn't a pretty photo. I wasn't ready to talk about it for a while, but I'm finally opening up about dog parks (and how I feel about them) today, along with sharing some thoughts on proper clothing for outdoor outings with your furry friends! Dog Park Accidents About 14 days ago, Rosie and I spent the morning at the local dog park so she could get some energy out before I went to the hair salon to get my hair done. She was playing being chased by a sheep dog but as she . . .
Last week, I had a breakthrough about what kind of style blogger I wanted to be (a realistic, everyday-kind-of-woman one) and shared 3 ways to style a Herringbone Vest (p.s. enter here for to win one for yourself!) I had so much fun taking the same piece from my closet and styling it different ways; proving to myself that I don't have to buy new things every week to be stylish! Today, I'm coming back at you again with 3 Ways to Style a Graphic Tee. I am SO, SO excited that graphic tees are making a comeback this year because I've always loved them, but felt a little bit dorky for wearing them. I mean, I know I need to get over that and just wear what I love . . .
Disclosure: I received free product in exchange for styling Affiliate links: I may receive a small commission at no charge to you if you click on some of the links in this post! Here's a common misconception about being a style blogger: As a fashion blogger, I buy new clothes every day so I can style new outfits. Let me tell you all this: FALSE! If I could afford to buy myself new clothes every day, I probably wouldn't be working so hard to make my blog successful! Maybe some fashion bloggers can afford to do that, but I'm not made out of money. I will admit that I do go out and occasionally pick up a piece once in a while to complete an outfit I . . .
