Spring Beauty Event

When Kristin and I started our business journey here at our blog and at our online boutique, LoveFeast Shop we couldn't imagine that eventually our journey would lead us to hosting boutique events in our cities, Baltimore and Minneapolis.  To begin with they were a way to mingle with the blogger friends we were making in each of our cities.  Eventually they grew as our business grew to include businesses and brands. "Whatever you do, do it with gust-0." BlogLove events are places for both businesses, brands and bloggers to … [Read more...]

Business from Dream to Reality

*The above picture is a screen shot of the new look of LoveFeast Shop. You get a sneak peek! We were rolling our bags down the conference hallway at Blissdom and looked at each other. "I can't believe we did it!" Chris Ann said. Five years ago when we started this blog, we had three goals. One, to see each other more often. Two, to start an online boutique and three, to help fund college for our 9 kids. We use to joke that we'd have to turn our dryer lint into dreams. We had been stay at home moms who had become pretty … [Read more...]

New York City Weekend

A few weekends ago we went to New York City for the weekend to celebrate with our New York City friends over a beautiful private dinner with a menu created by The Sea Grill just for our party. Our table looked out to the skating rink at Rockefeller Center. While in the city, I walked around the streets feeling the energy and the awe that the city brings me. (Grand Central Station turns 100 this year!) I've been hearing good things about it for quite a while and Eataly lived up to its name! Our lunch on … [Read more...]

Piercings, Tattoos & Bonding with Your Teen

Baker Boy bribed me. He said, "Mom, if you take me to get my tregus  pierced, I'll pay to have your nosed pierced." Yup, he did. Yes, he wanted something for himself, a ride to the piercing/tattoo shop and he was willing to pay to make it happen. But, as a mama of 3 teenage boys, I like to think there is an unspoken need in between those lines.  He didn't ask his dad or his brother (who drives), he asked me. I know a lot of parents who are against piercings and tattoos. Many of whom I call friend. I have a very good friend who … [Read more...]
