My Top 8 Tees

These 8 Tee’s will keep you lookin’ cool, and start a few conversations.

I am a big t-shirt girl, especially if there is a special detail or graphic. You can wear them with jeans, or under a blazer depending on the tee. I have retailed and personally purchased a few of the brands above. The Current/Elliot tees are a little more in price but the quality is there. I have both colors of the Fine Line bow tie tee and  love them. I suggest ordering a size down, because they run big. I am going to try the Eleven Paris Kate Moss, and the Sincerely Jules tee’s next.  I will keep you posted…

Cheers,

T Kilburn

Do you want beautiful skin ?

Skin Tonic Juice

While cruising through Whole Foods, I noticed the new magazine, Naturally, by Green Living expert, Danny Seo.  I just started to get back into juicing and the beautiful cover with the top 12 juice & smoothie superstars, roped me in.

I tried 2 of the 12 recipes, the skin tonic juice for me, and the apple, strawberry and lime for my son, Tatum.  Both were super good and easy to make, plus there were not too many ingredients, which is a plus for me.  To get started, I dusted off my Breville juice fountain elite I purchased it through Amazon. Its a pretty powerful juicer, I have really liked how easy it is to use.  The only downside to juicing for me is the clean up, ah the clean up.  I guess since I am always cleaning something up in my kitchen, what’s one more thing?  I shared the recipes below, and if you get a chance check out the new Naturally magazine, a good read with ton’s of good recipes.

They grow up so fast

 

Those eyesAlmost walkingJust Chillin'Tatum and MeHey Mama

Almost One…

Wow, it’s been almost a year since I had this little guy!  I can’t tell you how many times I have been told, “enjoy every moment because they grow up so fast”.  Tatum is getting so tall and almost walking.  His hair is starting to grow and little teeth are finally coming in.

I am always tired, but I have never laughed or smiled more in my whole life.  It takes me twice as long to get my work finished because I am on “Tatum time” now, and for at least the next 17 years!  I am enjoying all the little things, like going to the park or for a walk.  Today we are just hanging out on my sweet bandana picnic blanket (thank you Penny) and enjoying the weather, which has been amazing.  Enjoy all the precious moments, Happy Friday!

Cheers,

Jean shorts and Booties

Layered

I could wear jean shorts all year long.  I wish the weather here in Seattle could back me up.  Thankfully, it’s summa summa summa,  so jean shorts it is.  I must say as far as jean shorts go I have been getting a lot of mileage from my Mother denim shorts.  In the past I used to sell many brands, but the top three were always, J-Brand, Mother, and Siwy Denim.  Today, I combined with an ombre button down shirt, and sparkle booties.  Since I am on the smaller side, I like to pair denim shorts with nude or lighter colored booties to elongate my legs.  My signature is to layer accessories, today was a little on the light side.  Threw on a classic aviator and I’m ready to go.

Happy  Sunny Tuesday,

Cheers,

T Kilburn
