Golden Hippie*

Ya know Gals, it’s easy to reflect a mood in your style when you allow yourself to be imaginative. The other day I was hankering to write a post and thought to myself, “okay Tor, you want to write a post inspired by how you feel right now, so how are ya feeling and what do you […]


A Secretly Sequined Delivery*

How amazing is it to be thought of Gals? I honestly feel that that is all us Gals are looking for in this world. To be thought of. To be appreciated and to be celebrated. Working with so many amazing bloggers, I can say that our Project Fab Secret Santa Exchange has been amazing to […]


Golden Encrusted*

Now, here’s what I love about vintage… The percentage of another person walking around in the same piece of vintage […]

A Different Kind of Drop Earring*

We are all about a statement piece, but I think sometimes we can over think a piece of POP and think it’s all about the size. But great items, and deals, can also come in small packages. For Nouveau November let us not focus on how big our baubles are but the statement even a […]

“Can I Help You?”

It doesn’t take much to have a moment with someone. A stranger. A person who knows nothing about you but when they look at you with kindness makes you feel like a friend. Makes you feel something. I was standing in line at the Dunkin Donuts around work waiting  behind about 20 kids asking for sugar […]


A Happy Meal

Clinking glasses, fresh chicken and waffles, and friends with attitudes I share, is how I spent my Sunday this past weekend. I was brunching with a few of my closest Gal Pals, minus one who was sick that day and we missed her dearly, and there was a moment where my heart warmed hotter than the […]



It was a Saturday afternoon. I had been putting off chores for weeks… okay fine, it’s been a few months. I just didn’t feel like it. There it was a ton of clothes piled up and jewelry scattered across the chest of drawers I’ve been stuffing ignorantly for days with more clothes and more mess. […]


Grace Us With You

We all need a reminder sometimes that we are good. That we are okay. That we have all that we need to be the best version of ourselves. We do. Even if you can’t see the tools buried within our hearts, minds, and body… we do. They are there. So here is your reminder from […]


Nouveau November

Gals it’s time to ARRIVE! By definition “nouveau” can mean a few things : modern, up to date, newly arrived, developed… and I thought about all those words and came to the conclusion that aren’t we all waiting for the moment to arrive? To feel that we are here, strong, now, in the present, confident, […]

Nouveau Noshing for Buck Bucks*

Entertaining in my mind should never feel like a chore, it should be something that’s enjoyed and even relaxing. So how do you make it easy on yourself? Go somewhere and get inspired! The other day I decided to stop off at a Dollarstore… I do this often. Why? Well for starters dollar stores are […]


Oh La La Ode to a Simple Dinner*

The first thing that came to mind when I wanted to throw a dinner for friends with an ode to “Oh La La October”, was the thought of a simple meal with special details that wouldn’t break the bank. A simple meal that would still be sophisticated and tasty, but decorated by a table that […]

#GiveAPenny: Zarina

How beautiful is Zarina in her baseball cap!  Standing sweetly by the register at Starbucks, Zarina complimented my H&M dress that’s probably about 3 years old. She made my oldie feel goodie by just being herself and sharing her confidence. A beautiful gal inside and out deserves the shout! Thank you Zarina for being wonderful […]
