WIW to the Oscars

Tammy Hiveley - February 25, 2015

As I mentioned last week {here}, we were invited to the Twin Cities Oscar Experience 2015. It proved to be a fabulous soirée with food, Hollywood fashion and most importantly… giving back to the community! All proceeds are split between non-profits, Twin Cities Film Fest and Aegis Foundation. Cate was unable to attend at the last minute so my beautiful friend, Summer, jumped at the chance to …

Perfectly Everything

Tammy Hiveley - August 20, 2014

As you know from this post, I’m homeless.  Well… not technically homeless… but kinda!  We sold our house too quickly {good problem to have I suppose}.  But while we wait for our new construction, it leaves my fab family of five without a home base to call our own for a few months.  If you know me, you know that I’m always up for a little …

Wild About You

Tammy Hiveley - December 20, 2013

What are you wild about this holiday season? I’m wild about this dream gown… Elie Saab Fall 2013 Haute Couture Collection I wish I had somewhere to wear it, but I don’t … *sigh*  so I guess I’m reduced to twirling in my dreams tonight.  Could I be more head-over-heels with the use of deep blues this season?  It’s such an easy transition from my …

Plays Well With Others

Cate Mezyk - April 10, 2013

I’m on Day 3 of my Sanibel necklace remix challenge. And I am honestly loving it so far! It’s seriously so easy to wear – it’s got a handy hook to shorten the length PLUS it’s reversible. When Jennifer of Stella & Dot (and a Pop Up Shop participant) challenged me to wear this one for a week straight and make it look different every …

Road Block

Cate Mezyk - October 30, 2012

I’m spending much of my free time lately planning for the fall Pop Up Shop (coming up on Saturday, Nov 17th from 9am-1pm here in Prior Lake). For some reason, it feels… easy. It shouldn’t be this easy. It’s supposed to be a lot of work. So many people applied that I had to turn down amazing vendors that wanted to take part in the …

When In Doubt

Cate Mezyk - October 24, 2012

Often times, no matter how early I’m up, no matter how much time I have to get ready, it comes down to the final seconds before we scramble pell mell into the car and make a mad dash off to wherever we’re headed. So it’s no surprise that, as I was leisurely straightening my hair the other morning (because I have to straighten my hair …

Rain, Rain Come Again

Cate Mezyk - July 23, 2012

We haven’t had a whole lot of rain around these parts this summer. So it’s one of those rare times when I’m excited to see it falling from the sky. Even on a Farmer’s Market Saturday. Though it’d be even better if I had a personal hair stylist following me around all day. ‘Cuz what started out as a great hair day ended in a …

One Dress, Five Ways

Cate Mezyk - February 8, 2011

I feel strongly about the fact that it doesn’t take much to make your look pop – a few accessories go a long way to transform a basic piece into something that stands out in a crowd. The proof? I took a simple black dress (don’t we all have one in our closets?) and made it work for just about any occasion with the addition …
