Mommy hair/makeup/clothes Slump? September 30 2014

I remember in my 20's that I could NEVER (ever, ever, ever, ever!), leave the house without a full face of make-up, my hair done,  and a decent outfit.  Fast forward until recently, and I am noticing that I have less and less of a problem leaving the house in a pony, my glasses, no make-up, and a child on each hip.  Literally, my eleven year old son, who apparently has gotten so used to the hoodies and glasses, told me when I was getting ready for dinner, why he didn't understand why I had to "get dressed up".  I even recall him saying the words, embarrass me.  Yikes!  



Fashion, accessories, shoes, make-up, hair was always my passion and up until the past year, I felt like I completely have lost this in the scheme of things.  Has anyone else felt this way?  Starting Sweet Caroline has definitely opened my eyes, and almost forced me to get back into the swing.  I mean, how can I justify running to the store in pajama pants and a hoodie when I have a warehouse of clothes at my fingertips?  I just can't.

SCB tries to make things easy for our Glam Gals.  We want to not only give you pieces that work together or can be incorporated into your current wardrobe, but make it an effortless venture.  Then, the question of easy hair and make-up came to mind.  While trolling on Pinterest (I know, I don't have time to blow out my hair, but I have time to Pin.  My how priorities change!), I found this amazing little YouTube channel with easy little tips on hair and make-up.  Messy hair?  Can be done easily into a Messy Pony.  Fresh faced looks in less than 5 minutes.  Um, yes please!

Transition your favorite Summer items to Fall! September 03 2014

As much as I do not want to admit that Summer is coming to a close -- It is.  Our pool and backyard are full of leaves, the days are getting shorter and darker earlier, and the nights are getting cooler.  The only saving grace, for me any way, is our built in fire pit that my husband worked so hard on this summer.  
Here at SCB we have been having a clearance sale for most of our Summer items in order to make room for our fall collections.  (Many of you have already snagged your deals!)  Seeing all these UH-Mazing clothes go out the door has made me think of new ideas and ways that we could wear some items throughout the year -- Some are just that awesome that I CANNOT bring myself to put them away for winter!
So, below, we put together some transition ideas for wardrobe staples, faves, and -- Some still available through tonight at midnight!
