“Behind-the-Scenes Photos of the Arkansas Adventure Getaway”

We just finished this year’s Adventure Getaway and it was our best one yet. They really do get better every year, just when I think it isn’t possible, it somehow turns out to be. I always walk away thinking there is some sort of magic fairy dust sprinkled all over these trips. The women come as strangers and leave as lifelong friends. My favorite thing is to see women host […]

“How To Repurpose Your Candle Jars”

The first sign of cooler temperatures sends us running out to fill our homes with all the delightful scents of the season.

Little Rock is just that, a best kept secret that Georgia got to dig into when planning this year’s Adventure Getaway. She turned over every rock and dug into every nook and cranny to plan the perfect trip […]

“Meet the Modern Pioneers: Bella Vita Jewelry”

I have to say, I realized early on that I am not a very good employee, which is why I realized that somehow, some way, I needed to work for myself. So that probably explains why Brandy and I immediately clicked when we first met. I love meeting women who are carving their own path, who spend time becoming self aware and hone in our their strengths to do what makes […]
