Wearable Wednesday: It's all about LACE!

Happy Wednesday!

Today I'm focusing on another style that is hot, hot, hot! It's all about lace this spring, especially at The Limited at Easton Town Center.

From tops, to bottoms, to skirts to purses, lace is in!

Check out a few of my favs taken from Stylinty's Style Stage! (If subscribing to emails, be sure to visit www.columbussocialite.com to see all the looks below!)

Wearable Wednesday: YELLOW!

Happy Wednesday!

This past weekend was amazing and definitely felt like summer was in the air! Now if only the weather could stay in the 70's, we could throw out our boots and jeans and bring out our skirts and sandals!

With Spring here and summer weather approaching, the sunshine makes me want to wear yellow!

Thank goodness The Limited has me covered, because with a new floor set of yellows and pastels, I feel like a blooming flower! :)

If you're into yellows or want to try out the hue, find your match with a skirt, top or pants!

Below are images from Stylinity's Style Stage (be sure to visit www.columbussocialite.com to see the images if you're a subscriber) with a few different yellow options to wear this spring!

Wraps, Smoothies & Wheatgrass...Oh my!

Last week I was invited to try out Hilliard's newest hotspot: Pulp Hilliard.

Located at 3664 Fishinger Blvd, this juice and smoothie bar is filled with REAL fruit, over 30 options to choose from and even offers wraps!

My sister Leigh Ann and I sampled a few different choices off the menu.

I went for the Spicy Turkey Wrap which was filled with thin sliced smoked turkey breast with shredded cheddar cheese, tomato slice, romaine lettuce, and a spicy sauce.


Yes, it was delicious and a perfect healthy meal for lunch.

Leigh Ann chose the Asian Chicken Wrap which included tender chicken breast, cucumber, shredded carrots, and nonfat sesame ginger dressing.


Not only were our tastebuds screaming for joy over the wraps but we each tried out a fruit smoothie to cap off the day.


Event Baby Seidensticker enjoyed the smoothie!


My "Raging Berry" smoothie was to die for as it was extra berry-licious and with an extra boost of Sugar Free Red Bull, I had my caffeine fix for the day! I also added a free enhancer "fat burner" to my smoothie.


Before we headed out, I had to try a shot of wheatgrass (my first time) which is equivalent to two and a half pounds of green leafy vegetables!!




After downing a shot of wheatgrass which tastes like, yep you guessed it...grass, you are suppose to "chase" it with a shot of orange juice!

It's actually not too bad and it contains 92 minerals that your body needs!

After wraps, smoothies and wheatgrass, I will definitely be going back to Pulp Hilliard for more! Thanks to owners Dana and Chris for a great mid-day treat!


Now to get your helping of wraps, smoothies and don't forget your shot of wheatgrass, head to Pulp Hilliard for breakfast, lunch or dinner and be completely satisfied with your daily suggestions for fruits and vegetables!

For more information, please visit www.pulpjuiceandsmoothie.com or visit their Facebook Page at https://www.facebook.com/PulpHilliard‎.

Wearable Wednesday: April Showers Brings Blues & Patterns!

We all know the expression "April showers bring May flowers" and we can only hope that is the case after the winter we had! But in the fashion world, April brings many prints, patterns and shades of blue!

This week I'm featuring three of The Limited's top looks in stores and online now! I'm obsessed with the first dress which you can't see the back, but it ties around the neck and has a lace back. But it covers your bra so you don't have to go braless or have small tatas! :) It's perfect for a wedding shower, brunch, or a date night.

Take a look at these three looks from Stylinity's Style Stage and if you like them, buy them directly from my site! :)

NAVY & LACE

PINSTRIPES

ROYAL BLUE


Here's to spring...and summer!

Happy Birthday to....

Guest Blogger GRETCHEN M.!!!!


I've known Gretchen since I was in the 4th Grade. Through elementary school, to middle school, to high school, to after college...we have not only been friends but have had some great times together!

From Vegas to Punta Cana last year to celebrate our 30ths to supporting Nationwide Children's Hospital together by being in Kinder Key, and have been morning workout buddies!





Gretchen is not only a talented attorney (I would never want to go against her in a case) but she is a great friend. She has always had my back and will do anything for her friends!

She's watched Kitty for me (and played "feather on a string" with her, is my pedicure bud, she throws the BEST Derby party and is always up for a good time!



She also was one of the first contributors to ColumbusSocialite.com and writes about different passions of hers including when she ran a 5K EVERY weekend all summer to benefit charities! She even did a triathlon last summer! Talk about impressive!



So Happy Birthday to a great gal and I'm glad to have you as a true friend!!
