That Blogger Life with the Venue 8

As a fashion blogger, time is precious. Collaborations are often underway, email correspondence is non-stop, and social media is always moving. We are posting on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, now Snapchat… (ps if you’re not following along yet, my username is @lindseyherzog!) With time being absolute gold, technological innovations that allow for shortcuts are total lifesavers.



This is where the Intel powered Dell Venue 8 series 7840 comes in. I honestly do not know where I’d be without it. Let me just give you a few examples of my every day life with this puppy. The Intel® RealSense™Snapshot Depth Camera is super high quality, way more than any other tablet devices I’ve tried out, specifically with the depth of field. That cool blurry background in professional cameras is possible with this tablet. So wherever I am with my Venue, I can snap a quick shot of whatever’s going on around me, or you know, maybe even snap a quick selfie haha. Also, the fact that it is so lightweight and thin means it literally fits in every single one of my handbags and I can hardly tell it’s there. I love that! Another aspect I can’t get over about it… the Dell Gallery makes it crazy easy to view all my photos from every device and every storage channel in one place. They’re automatically updated and aggregated so when I need to use one for social media, it’s right at my fingertips. The editing capacity is off… the... charts! Usually I have to bounce around between like 4 different photo-editing apps, but not with the Venue. I can selectively adjust brightness, saturation, and contrast in a photo and even refocus. So yea. Can you tell I basically want to marry this product? Haha.

Midas Touch










I just found out that Beyonce has this dress too. Hey Bey, let's twin sometime, k girl? The last time I wore this was on a distant Monday, in a land far far away called NYC. Like NYC, this dress is one of my favorites and was fun to slip back into it after a long absence. Every girl should have a few dresses or purses or shoes that make them feel like a million bucks. The reason why couldn't have been demonstrated better than in the post of one of my friends' on Instagram the other day. Sasha of Moiology is a new mom, of a darling little girl. She's absolutely loving motherhood, but has been transparent about the change involved in the journey. She shared a simple picture looking down at her floral skirt with a pair of exquisite Manolos peeking out. She mentioned being grateful to have church on Sundays to get dressed up for. It's not like a pair of shoes, even Manolos, can lead to world peace or save a life or help us win the nobel prize but somehow little moments like Sasha's can be just the right touch of "everything's going to be ok" to get us through to Tuesday.

The website re-design launch of Ruby Girl is coming up soon, so stay tuned!

Lace & Pearls










photos by jaimee morse

What a difference a day makes. Literally. Like when you wake up on Monday morning, all we can think of is what it would be like to not wake up until say 11. Or coffee, all we can think of is coffee. But when Friday comes, and the weekend is just 5 copies, 3 project meetings, and several emails away... we kind of feel like the birds are chirping just for us. I mean how many times do you walk out of your house to your car, look around you, smile & sigh ... "life is good!". Well however many times you do that, I bet 80% of them are on Fridays. There are entire playlists devoted to today. Filled with happy, dancy, party like it's 5pm songs. All this to say, TGIF! And enjoy your weekend.

Also... in case you missed the last post, Ruby Girl's re-launch is NEXT week. I can hardly wait!

How to Pack for Spring Break

Everyone’s hitting the beaches for a bit of refuge from the 9 to 5’s. Honestly the Snapchat stories are driving me a little crazy. All the bright blue waters and white sand beaches, making me want to catch the next plane ride to Palm Beach. Because I honestly believe that spring breaks are not something we should grow out of. Spring breaks for everyone!

When packing for spring break, there are several essentials to include for the trip.
1.  Coral tennis shoes: Going from beach to pool to hotel room at a moment’s notice means 
we need a comfortable pair of slip-on shoes. These coral ladies shoes are ridiculously cute with 
a definite Taylor Swift flair.  These shoes look like they’re ready for some spring break adventures.
2. White shorts: It doesn’t get a whole lot more Jackie Onassis Kennedy than these pleated white
 shorts. A crisp and fresh look, these shorts are ready to hit Palm Beach.
3. Nautical Accessories: Add a rope necklace to your outfit for just the right touch of style. 
It’s casual, more comfortable than a metal, and all sorts of preppy. A straw hat is another spring 
break must-have.
4. Florals: Almost a no-brainer, this print is an absolute must for a spring break trip. Wear it in 
a skirt, a top, or accessories for a feminine, beachy look.
5. Stripes: A chic basic, I usually pack at least 2-3 striped items. It’s a print that anyone at any age 
or with any body type can wear. This striped tennis dress is polished and chic as well as extra
 flattering with the cinched waist. The beach blanket is another perfectly stylish striped spring break accessory.
6. Lightweight sweater: For those late night walks on the beach to look at the stars and listen to the
 waves, it’s nice to have a light layer to throw on with our shorts and tennis shoes. I love this one with
 the lobster print, it’s got a nice New England coastline feel to it.
7. Bikini: Finding just the right swimsuit (… or two or three) is an annual quest for the ages. So when
 we find just the right one, it’s fun to be able to sport it on those sunny days at the beach.
8. Bright colors: If one was to check out my pack job for a spring break trip, it could basically be
 described as a rainbow in a suitcase. If I’m headed to the tropics, I’ll definitely be sporting an array
 of bright clothes to match the summery surroundings.

Now that we’ve got our packing all figured out, it’s back to daydreaming about sunny days and blue waters until we jetset outta here.
