What’s in MY Cart? What’s in yours?

Tammy Hiveley - April 9, 2019

As most of you know, Wild Ruffle does not stock shoes in the shop. While there are a few different reasons why, the main reason is… Why would we? when we have at our fingertips? For real, my heart-eyes can’t handle the cuteness on that site. And did I mention their FREE shipping and FREE returns?!! I have to click back over there to …

Looking Forward – Live and Learn

Tammy Hiveley - January 4, 2017

I’m no stranger to making mistakes. There’s been many-a-day I’d like to take back. It’s taken quite some time to realize I need to make a change to my actions and learn from each day. It doesn’t help to just ignore my missteps. It’s true, I don’t get stronger or smarter unless I learn how to handle those hard moments. The age-old saying, Live and Learn is short …

And This Year is No Exception… Boo.

Tammy Hiveley - December 29, 2016

I wish I could say that this year is different. I wish I could describe to you my daily workout routine and healthy diet. But I can’t. Sadly, I’m at the same point as the rest of America. The holidays have gotten to my bottomline slowly over the past month and a half. But even worse – I’ve reached an all time low. My trouble spots …

How Did I Get Into This Mess?

Tammy Hiveley - October 5, 2016

I’ve always been a firm believer on making your future your own. Long long time ago when I met this cute guy, he thought that his future looked like one thing but I told him – why settle? You can do anything you want to do. Why assume you can’t? I didn’t have any insight, I just didn’t even think about failure. That thought hadn’t even …

If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It

Tammy Hiveley - September 21, 2016

Classic pieces are always the best investment for your wardrobe. Don’t get me wrong – I do promote throwing in fun fashion to shake it up on a regular basis. But let’s get real. Sometimes, like HERE and HERE, it’s nice to know an item you buy will last season after season and still look just as great as the day you bought it! I’ve got that …

Ready for Back To School with Camo, Tassels and Fringe

Tammy Hiveley - August 10, 2016

I’ve up’ed my game lately. At least in my children’s minds that is. It’s not the years of wiping butts or faces. Or the sleepless nights playing nurse to my sickly little ones. Or even the fun shopping sprees for BTS clothing. Nope. None of that matters to my girls. What does? Well, turns out my girls enjoy TV. And even better – they love …

Going, going, gone! || The Wild Ruffle Shop

Tammy Hiveley - July 27, 2016

Just like everything in life there are pros and cons. Sometimes this little venture, called our shop, runs along so smoothly. I think – WOW! This job is so unbelievably amazing to me. Then other days happen. Those are days when I’m over-my-head trying to figure out business taxes or falling behind on the bazillion things on my ToDo list. With tears in my eyes I think – Ugh! …

What Summer Looks Like 1/2 Way Through

Tammy Hiveley - July 20, 2016

How are you guys doing with your summer goals? Oh you too? Aaa yeah, my daily goals have flexed and wained with each passing week. Remember when I started the summer off with high hopes of making this chalk chart work? Has it worked? yes. All the time? no. Here’s what has worked: The kids know what their duties are without fail. Granted each task …

The Duck Song

Tammy Hiveley - July 6, 2016

Summer calls for this. TOTALLY RANDOM, STRANGE & OFF TOPIC: My girls had been singing this song around the house a few months ago. It’s one of those annoyingly catchy songs that won’t leave your unconsciousness (is that even a word?) without a fight. Some how it just popped back into my brain. And it won’t leave. UGH! I apologize in advance but since it’s stuck in my …

I’m Here. Ready and Waiting.

Tammy Hiveley - May 18, 2016

Here I am, Summer. Ready and waiting for you. Bring it on. Bring it ALL on! The lazy mornings, sunny days at the beach, icy midday treats, late dinners followed by drinks around the bonfire. I want it all. I’m also more than ready for summer-wear. It’s so fun to pop into our shop each day to find more goodies waiting for us to unwrap, …
