Fashion & Shopping

For as long as I can remember, NIC+ZOE has been one of my favorite clothing lines. Their clothes are pretty, comfortable, versatile and travel well. I have been known to take a client to their store and find her everything she needs for the season…kind of like magic…and they have some excellent go-to pieces that many women appreciate! Read more


My Favorite Covered Perfectly Top! This Covered Perfectly top feels so delicious when you put it on, but that’s not all!

  • It is soft and cozy so you’ll want to wear it every day. 
  • The fit is great—it lightly skims my body. It is great for a curvy body (or someone who wants to add the illusion of curves) and great for someone with hips.
  • The color is great – this shade of teal blue looks amazing on many people. (And it also comes in several other gorgeous colors.)
  • It has a flattering neckline that is also perfect for jewelry.

After all that, imagine my delight when I discovered that this top is also incredibly versatile. As you can see I can dress it up or dress it down and I still feel comfortable and pulled together. Many of their styles are designed to camouflage tummies and feel lightweight for fluctuating temperature changes. Plus, they are offering you a 20% discount by using the coupon code TIC20. (This top was provided by Covered Perfectly; all opinions are my own.)

I have had the pleasure of working with several really amazing photographers and you can see their work on this website. The cover photo on the home page is by Stephanie Rosseel. Headers on other pages are done by Stephanie Rosseel, Theresa Johnson or Keith Patankar — please let me know if you want to know who did what. I’m happy to share their talent! The before and after makeover photos are done by Theresa Johnson, Meri Bond and Corinne Landry. I can highly recommend each of them.
