10 Things Every Woman Should Have in Her Purse!

Your purse is like your best friend. A friend that is always with you and ready for whatever life throws your way by carrying all your on-the go essentials.  Let’s take a look at 10 must-haves so that you can be ready for anything at any time.


Dry elbows and itchy hands are annoying. Having lotion in your purse will make your life a lot easier,  plus, it smells great and you will have nice smooth hands when greeting your friends.


A dead cell phone is about as useful as carrying a paperweight everywhere you go
Having a phone charger, and maybe an external battery back  is awesome if you'll be busy all day and not near an outlet.


An awake nightmare. I can’t imagine anything worse than needing a tampon or pad and not having one. It's always better to be prepared, specially in this situation.


Stinky breath is a no-no. Gum and/or mints come in handy for a meeting, a date, or a chance encounter.


Because a lady is always prepared and cash never goes out of style.
Or maybe you want to fill the cup of the one street performer that made your night special.


Having a healthy snack can prevent you from making late night bad decisions.
It can also help when you're stuck in traffic or just craving food but can't go anywhere.


With so many germs around, hand sanitizer is a must have. With all the doors we open and people we meet, it's always smart to keep it clean.

Bobby pins come in handy in many different situations. Whether you are picking locks or holding your hair back, bobby pins are good to have.


These come to your rescue when you find yourself over heated or you just need a break from that messy hair and don't care look.


Last but not least, heels above stylishly protect and stabilize your high heeled shoes, keeping you above surfaces like grass, grates and cracks that can damage your shoes and slow you down. Ideal for outdoor weddings, special events and everyday life.

Top 6 Summer Trends You Should Be Wearing Now

This week marks the first week of Summer.  YES, finally it's here.  It's our favorite time of year.  Not only is it high wedding season, perfect weather for wearing your Heels Above, but it's all about BBQ- pool parties, warm evenings out on the terrace and lazing the day away out in the sun! Throw on your strappy sandals, grab a glass of Rose' and get ready to try some of summer's sweetest trends.

1. The Little White Dress

Nothing says summer quite like a flowing-in-the-breeze white dress.  Current fave is this one from Calypso.   In fact Calypso has so many beautiful bohemian style dresses.  The hardest thing is deciding which one to pick.

2.  Lace it Up

The sweetest looks this season involve dainty lace details, like this pretty sundress from Topshop.  This number comes in white too.  We love them both.

3.  Caramel colored sandals

The perfect shoe color to go with all your summery outfits is this season's go to... Caramel.  Try this leather ankle wrap platform sandal from Nordstrom.  This color will go with just about everything in your closet.

4.  Nautical Nature

You don't need to navigate the high seas to wear this fun trend.  The striped nautical look is classic and will do well each summer season. Here is a simple striped pullover by Vineyard Vines.  You can find it at Nordstrom.  Paired with jeans or anything white will be one of your go to summer staples.

And why not throw your beach gear into this tote made of recycled sails by Seabags?  How cute is that?

5.  Pom-Pom Party

Nothing beats festive tassels, dangling beads and soft, fuzzy pom-poms. Check out this chic Tulum dress from Revolve clothing.  This site also has adorable pom bikinis on sale now too.

6.  The Poncho

This summer trend is so versatile that it can be it's own outfit or an accessory!  Worn with a light cami underneath all you have to do is throw on a pair of white linen pants or skinny jeans and you are set!  We personally love it worn as a cover up for the beach or on vacay somewhere fabulous!  This is our favorite find so far from Paula & Chlo.

There you have it folks!  Have some fun and remember to savor each sweet summer day.  Here's to the Summer of '15.

Frozen Fever

Frozen Fever

I realize the Frozen frenzy has died down in the past few months but I have a good feeling it's going to get hot again really soon.  Not only is there a second Frozen movie in the works but there is a traveling Frozen on Ice show going around the country.  I have also just heard about Disney's Epcot coming out with a "Frozen Ever After" attraction.  To catch a glimpse of it click here.  Looks pretty spectacular, so don't put your snowflakes away just yet!
My friend Bridget recently threw a Frozen themed birthday party for her four-year-old daughter.  She did all the decorations, baking and crafts herself.  She is insanely creative as you can see, but the best thing is, is that you can do it all yourself too!

Here are some fun ideas on how to throw your own Frozen themed party from start to finish!

Let your guests know where the party is!  This sign totally sets the mood for the festivities.

Start with some fun Frozen decorations.  These are easy to put together yourself.  Bridget found these figures at the Dollar store, but you can find them online on Amazon or even Target and the Disney Store still carry them.  Glass jars and beads are from Michaels.

Have some super delish snacks and drinks for your guests.

This Blizzard Brew was made so easily.  All you need is Blue Hawaiian Punch, Sprite and scoops of vanilla ice cream. Voila!

 There is one recipe that Bridget likes to make for all her festive functions and it is always the hit of the party.  They are called Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles and they are devine!  The recipe comes from The Cookie Dough Lover's Cookbook by Lindsay Landis.  But you can also find the recipe here.

Cotton candy stuck on a stick and bagged to look pretty!
Anna and Elsa make their appearance at the party and entertain the cuties for a bit before returning to Arrendale.

And the craft activity stations are now open!  Here are some creative ways to entertain the little princesses.

Decorating their own pictures frames with jewels, stickers, wood frames and glue all from Michaels Craft Store.
Decorate your own cookie.  Everyone loves a heavily frosted cookie!

This next craft was everyone's favorite.  Such a creative yet easy idea to pull off.  Building your own Frozen snow globe.  All you need are small mason jars, lots of glitter and lots of baby oil.  Just glue the little Frozen figures into the cap of the jar beforehand.  The rest is up to the guests to put together.  

First put as much glitter as you want into the empty jar with the figure glued to the base already.  Then you pour baby oil into the jar.  Fill the jar up so that's it's almost to the top where the lid screws on.  I'd say there is about 10-15% of space at the top of the jar.  Then you screw the lid onto the top and you have your very own Frozen snow globe.

With all the fun crafts the girls were collecting, they needed something to keep it all in.  Each girl was given their own Frozen bag to put all their goodies in.  I've seen these at Target recently and you can just put each girl's name on the bag so they know which one belongs to them.  Perfect party favor keepsake bag.

Moral of the story is that if you find your little one asking for a Frozen themed party for the first, second or even a third time... just Let It Go and start party planning!
