Photo Journal: Grand Prix of Portland

Today’s post is a photo journal of Hailey’s first Indy car experience, at the Grand Prix of Portland. – DivineMrsDiva.com #portland #pnw #indycar #grandprix #grandprixpdx

Back in September, Sean and I joined my mother-in-law, Sharon, and friend, Nigel, for a visit to the Grand Prix of Portland.  I've never been the kind of girl that has been into cars or sports or racing of any kind.  It just isn't my thing.  But Nigel has been an Indy car fan for decades and wanted me to check it out.  In today's post, I'm taking you on a little jaunt through my experience at the races!

Reviewing Simply Be's Joanna Hope Beaded Maxi Dress

In today’s post, Hailey reviews the Joanna Hope Beaded Maxi Dress from Simply Be, a perfect dress for the holidays! - DivineMrsDiva.com #SimplyBe #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #holiday #holidaystyle

The holidays are upon us!  I have long loved feasting my eyes on all the latest holiday fashions - from beading to sequins, satin to velvet, and accessories to match.  I love luxe looks, festive frocks, and anything super shiny.  Often times, this is when I stock up on those special, shimmery pieces I want in my wardrobe year round - be they fancy or casual.

Simply Be recently reached out to me and sent me the Joanna Hope Beaded Maxi Dress.  I was unsure about how it would look on me, as it is a style and look I haven't tried before.  I was out of my comfort zone, but I ended up feeling like a shimmering goddess.

This month on Afternoon Live, I showed style inspiration for a variety of holiday parties.  I wanted to show more than just dresses, and more than just fancier partywear.  While I do have a couple of fancy party options, I also provide you with style inspiration for work parties, ugly sweater parties, and comfy pajamas for relaxing and gifting.

With Black Friday sales starting or just about to, this is a great time to make a list of things you need for your wardrobe, for upcoming events, for gifting, etc.  I've included some information about deals for the week from a few of my favorite brands.

High School Reunion: Homecoming

In today’s post, Hailey reviews a floral skater dress and denim shirt from Torrid – a look she packed for her 20-year high school reunion festivities! - DivineMrsDiva.com #Torrid #TorridInsider #psblogger #plussizeblogger #styleblogger #plussizefashion #plussize #psootd #ootd #plussizeclothing #outfit #style #plussizecasual #summer #summerstyle #travel #vacation #plussizetravel #rockport #cobbhill #nagasakodesigns #zerdocean #Amazon #etsyfinds

The holiday season is upon us, and I am a stressed out mess.  This week and next are extremely busy, but I feel like I haven't really had time to breathe since I've been back home from my trip.  Along with cancer check-ups, shooting a new KATU segment, Outlander Craft Day with the OFWA group, and a dentist appointment, I also have multiple photoshoots, an endo appointment, Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving, Bunco, Black Friday, and blogging to contend with.  (And that's just this week and next week.)  Like the title of Michael Scott's future book, somehow I'll manage.

In today's post, I am continuing to catch you up on my trip to Georgia-Lina for my 20-year high school reunion, with a look at meeting my friends for dinner and attending my high school's homecoming game..  You can check out the Savannah leg of my trip from a previous post.  As with that post, I will include outfit photos up front, before going into the photo journal portion of the post.

Photo Journal: Hiking at Mt. Hood

A photo journal of our Labor Day hike near Mt. Hood, Oregon. – DivineMrsDiva.com #travel #vacation #plussizetravel #psblogger #plussizeblogger #plussize #psootd #plussizeclothing #plussizecasual #oregon #mthood #hiking #pnw #pacificnorthwest

Back over Labor Day weekend, Sean and I decided to get out of the house and take the boys for a little road trip.  We've been wanting to make more time for a little hiking, so we ventured out towards Mt. Hood for a scenic drive and walking amongst nature. It was fun to breathe the fresh air, look at the glorious scenery, and take photos along the way.
