Be Of Good Cheer

houndstooth tights, tulle, and boots

I am generally a fairly happy go lucky kind of girl. I don’t worry about much, and I have a tendency to think that everything will turn out ok in the end. But opening a storefront… it’s a lot of work. It’s pretty darn stressful. I knew it would be. And I readily signed up […]

Wild about 40 Things

baby Tammy

Lordy Lordy guess who’s…. just kidding. I’m not going to be that dorky! But you get the hint. I’m turning 40 tomorrow!  AAhhh! I don’t mind turning 40. I just don’t like the wrinkles, moodiness and body changes that comes with it. *sigh In honor of my 40th birthday I’m letting you in on 40 random […]

Hosting Made Easy

Thanksgiving day side dishes

This Thanksgiving is a big one for both of the Wild Ruffle girls, as we’ll each be hosting in our homes for the first time! Though Tammy has hosted before, she just moved into her new home (yay!), and will be having her whole crew over there on the big day. And though in previous […]

My Life is a Zoo

Thick wooly sweater coat, blue and orange combo with Frye boots. Live life outside this winter!

Living out of boxes isn’t as cracked up as I thought it might be. {just kidding, I never really thought that} Don’t get me wrong, I’m giddy with every fiber of my body that we have officially moved into our new house!  Woohoo! But… My life is currently living out of boxes. Trying to stay one step […]

Knockin’ Boots

Sorel Conquest Carlys

To all those that assumed this was a continuation of the last couple of weeks where I talked about marriage and how to retain your passion for one another… my apologies. Sometimes it’s just about fashion. I’m a Minnesota girl, and I love fashion and pretty things. But I also live in a very snowy […]

Huge Holiday Giveaway!

huge holiday giveaway, worth nearly $500!

I have never been a Black Friday shopper. Honestly, I spent too many years working the retail end of this day to get excited about actually shopping it. I have lots of friends who swear that it is jolly good fun wrestle with others at midnight for a stack of sweaters or a big screen […]

Wild About This Life

an ode to the ordinary day - finding thankfulness in the every day

Sometimes, the days slip by and I forget to appreciate all the little wonderful moments. But oh boy – there have been a lot of them lately. And I don’t want any more time to trickle by without stopping to acknowledge all the tiny things. There are so many big, huge, obviously awesome things happening […]

Do you set your alarm for 1am and hit the Black Friday sales with girlfriends? Wild Ruffle is excited to host a Bachman’s Pop Up Shop on Black Friday November 28th from […]

Photograph Me

Mixed patterns galore! Stripes and florals are here to stay!

A major part of blogging is photography. And being 1/2 of Wild Ruffle means I both, take pictures and pose for pictures. This requires a great many things. One of the most important aspects is to use a high quality camera. Photographs sell your feelings and speak volumes of the message you are trying to convey.  Making […]
