A Color Matching Experience with Distinctly You Image and Color Consulting

Through the world of blogging and social media, I have been privileged to meet and work with a lot of really wonderful people and local businesses. Last year, when I was hosting the “Fashion at your Pace” event with Pace Lighting, I was introduced to Victoria Baylor of Distinctly You: Image and Color Consulting. I am so happy that I had the chance to meet with her because she is a wonderful woman who is doing amazing things in our local community and beyond.



As I mentioned, Victoria is the owner of Distinctly You: Image and Color Consulting. Through her business, she works with women and men teaching them about the importance of color and how to best dress your body in the workplace. A lot of people are clueless about what looks best on their body so Victoria works with them, teaching them to pick pieces that will accentuate their best features and really help them to stand out. Much of what she does is a custom color analysis. Through this service, Victoria goes through the different color palettes and works with you to determine what colors look best with your skin tone, eye color, and other features. I was privileged enough to meet with her and had her do a Custom Color Analysis on me.



Throughout history, color has been used as a symbol for different things. When you think of the color red you probably think of love or passion. When you think of the color green, many people think of wealth or money. The question though is how do these colors affect people when they wear them. Unfortunately, not everyone can wear every color. I am sure you have realized by now but some colors probably look terrible on you. I know for me personally, I look awful in bright yellow. It washes me out and does nothing for my complexion. The same can be said for most “electric” colors. Neon pinks and greens do nothing for me so I have always tried to avoid those colors. While I knew those colors were not for me, I wanted to know if their were other colors that I should not be wearing. I also wanted to know what colors looked best on me.



Through a sampling of meticulously made fabric swatches, Victoria and I were able to try a variety of colors with my skin tone. Using only a white sheet to cover my outfit and a face without makeup, Victoria and I went through all of the seasons of colors. It was honestly really difficult at first because, as boastful as it sounds, most colors looked good against my skin-tone. Of course those neon’s did nothing for me, but most of the other colors didn’t seem to cause any problems. We finally figured out that I could best be labeled as “Muted.” According to the International Image Institute in Toronto, Canada, “The muted palette is midway between Summer and Autumn, and has the colors that both palettes share. Although you are more neutral in your undertone, you may be slightly more warm or more cool, which will help indicate your “home” season. This will help to further define your palette.”



It was such a great experience and, even though I have a love of clothes and fashion, I still learned a lot about myself and the colors that I should be wearing. It really helps me to hone my shopping, especially when I am looking for something specific, to find the perfect piece, best suited for my body in all ways.

I encourage you to check back later this week because Victoria well be back with a guest blog post, furthering explaining what she does and the services that she offers. If you are local to Savannah, I encourage that you check her out. She is truly wonderful woman that can help you a lot in the face of a wardrobe crisis!

Relax and Unwind

Let’s be honest. Most weeks I go non-stop and have little to no time to stop. I wake up at 5:30am, pack lunches, pack bags, load Vivi in the car, head to work, teach all day, attend staff meetings, write lesson plans, grade papers, tutor after school, squeeze in doctor’s appointments, attend blogger events, schedule playdates, grocery shop, cook dinner, wash dishes, wash clothes, clean house, take care of Vivi, write blog posts, have pictures taken, edit photos, post on social media, respond to comments on social media and FINALLY get to bed only to do it all over again… Are you tired from reading that because I know I am worn out from living that life!


In the world of blogging, especially when it is not your full time job, we are notorious for stretching ourselves thin. We try to find a healthy balance but we still are often times squeezing more than we should on our plates. It is natural for things to fall off the edges. I don’t know if you noticed, but in my incredibly long list of weekly activities, I made no mention of personal care or “me time.” This is because that is usually the first thing to be cut off my overflowing plate. When prioritizing, I generally put myself last, which really is not good for my life, my health, or my sanity. Here lately I am realizing the importance of self-care and taking just a little time to do something for myself. When I take that time I am more rested, in a better mood, and more productive. It makes for a much happier Megan who is much more pleasant to be around. I get more things than done and definitely am better with time management.

So how am I taking more time for myself? It is little things here and there that I want to share with you all and encourage you to implement into your own life. I can promise that with a little self-care, you will feel like a new woman (or man!) and be a much more productive version of yourself!



Make Time for a Little Pampering

Sometimes it is nice to just sit back and let someone else take care of you. Whether you are getting a manicure and pedicure, indulging in a massage, or just getting a much needed hair cut, a little pamper session can do wonders. For me, especially now that it is warmer, I take the time to go and get pedicures. I usually grab one of my besties, drop Vivi off with one of her Grandparents, pick up a Starbucks and just sit back and relax. I pay extra for the longer foot massage and hot towels because my busy feet deserve the break. I gossip about life events, scroll through social media, and just focus on anything but my busy schedule. It is so nice to just be able to turn off my running my mind for an hour. I try to go every two weeks but if that is not possible then I definitely go once a month. It also has the bonus of giving me super cute toes all through sandal season.

I also am a member of the Southern Sugaring Sugar Society. With this monthly membership I am able to go get a Brazilian and an eye brow wax every month. It may be TMI but it is so nice to not have to worry about that little detail. I consider the girls at the salon my friends and I love drinking my wine, catching up with them, and taking care of all that unwanted hair! If you are local to the Savannah area I highly encourage you booking an appointment with Tiffani or Jessica. They are both fabulous, wonderful ladies who I love! Make sure to tell them that Being Mrs. Fowler sent you!



Lounge Around in Cute Jammies

If I am going to be spending a Saturday catching up on laundry, meal planning, and cleaning my house then I might as well be doing it in adorable jammies. Luckily I have Marley Lilly to keep me cute and comfy, complete with a perfect monogram. When my pajamas match, it just makes me feel like I have my life together. It may seem silly but I feel so much more efficient when I am doing household chores in an adorable pajama set. This set has long-sleeves with shorts which I love. It helps with my legs always being hot at night and my arms always being cold. The robe has loose, flowing sleeves so it fits easily over any pajamas. My slippers are so soft and I wear them whenever possible. They have grips on the bottom to prevent you from slipping and they are perfect for slipping into after a long day of working. I strongly encourage you to treat yourself to a comfy, matching pajama set and I can promise that you will feel much more glamorous as you take care of those household chores!

Netflix and Chill

When this phrase first started I was not exactly sure what it meant, and still don’t really, but for me, it means exactly what it says. I watch a whole lot of Netflix and do not do much of anything else. When I have the time. I love taking the day to watch an entire series on repeat. I will sit in the same spot for hours watching episode after episode of all the shows that I have missed while going non-stop. It is so nice to do absolutely nothing. My mind can shut off and travel to a different place. I can be in the ER with Meredith Grey, saving Storybrooke with Emma Swan, or fighting the bad guys with Eleven, all from the comfort of my very comfy couch. I do not do it often, but when I am able, it is so nice to sit their all day, eating my snacks, sipping my wine, and informing Netflix multiple times, “Yes! I am still watching!” Here are my Top 5 Favorite shows to binge currently on Netflix:

1. Grey’s Anatomy

2. Pretty Little Liars

3. Stranger Things

4. Fuller House

5. Once Upon a Time



Indulge in a Little Retail Therapy

While I cannot do it as much as I like, my absolute favorite way to relax and unwind is with a little retail therapy. If you have been following my blog for a while then you know that I absolutely love shopping! I don’t care if it is shopping online or shopping at the mall. I love it all. I love the smell of new shoes, the crinkle of shopping bags, and the way it feels to pop a tag off of a new shirt. Add in an ice, cold Starbucks to sip and enjoy as I shop and you have one very happy, relaxed Megan! It is so nice to be able to treat myself to something new. I work hard and I feel like I should be able to spurge every now and then. But it is not just for myself. Since I have a daughter, I love buying her new things as well. The little girl clothes are so cute and she gets just as excited about new clothes. I also love all the fun little toys that she likes. She and I both love opening up a new pack a Shopkins and seeing what is inside! Seriously though, this is definitely not a way to relax that I encourage frequently but, I do think you should treat yourself every once and a while!

I hope that this post encourages you to take some time for yourself. Self care is so important and it is definitely something that everyone should take them time to do. We all work so hard so it is important that we reward our hard work. This allows us to refocus and become even more successful in our endeavors. Let me know how you unwind in the comments below! I always love to hear from you!

Weight Loss: Getting Down to the DNA

Like every girl, I may not like to admit it, but I am constantly worrying about my weight. While I recently lost 35 pounds, I still have about 10 pounds hanging around my middle and my thighs that need to be gone. I have continued to eat healthy and do a light workout, but the pounds have not budged. I did not know what else I could do to get them gone.


I was at a loss until I found out about the Home DNA Healthy Weight Kit. Loosing weight has a lot to do with your genetic makeup, more so that you probably realize. Just like each of our metabolisms function differently, our ability to lose weight also varies. How often we need to exercise, what exercises we need to do, and even what foods we need to eat varies from person to person. The Home DNA Healthy Weight Kit has found a way to analyze your DNA and determine what exactly that your body needs, as well as what you need to do, to make sure that you can successfully lose weight.



The process is simple. Just swab the inside of your mouth with the enclosed swabs and place in the back in their package. Then, fill out the mailing slip and slide into the pre-paid envelope. Super simple! The hardest part is waiting for your results. You will also need to create and account with Home DNA. This is how you can track your package. They will notify you when they ship your swabs, once they have received your swabs, and when your results are ready. When your results are ready, just go back to your account to view. You can view online or you can print out for easier viewing. I chose to print it out so I could easily refer to my results as needed.




The results are very thorough. You will receive almost 75 pages of information to help you on your weight loss journey. It will break down all sorts of information about your genetic makeup and then use that information to inform you of your body’s response to different exercises. It then creates a custom exercise plan for you to make sure that you are doing the best possible exercises for you body to lose weight. It will also create a custom meal plan for you, perfectly tailored to your body’s specific needs. I love that the meal plan gives you tons of options and lays out your meal for the entire day, including snacks. The Home DNA Healthy Weight Kit is a great tool that has really aided me in bettering my weight loss journey




The company has created a quick, informative YouTube video to provide additional information about the Home DNA Weight Loss Kit. I encourage you to take the time to view the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzipxL6WWaQ.

I also wanted to let you know that the company is offering a special just for my readers! Until April 30th, you can save $50 on your Healthy Weight Kit! This makes the kit only $69! It is such a great deal and is definitely worth that amazing price considering all of the information that you will receive.

I definitely encourage you to consider this service and I am more than happy to help you by answering any questions that you may have. I am also pleased to inform you that I have lost an additional 5 pounds thanks to the recommendations of the Home DNA Healthy Weight Loss Kit!




Good Luck and Cheers to a Successful Weight Loss Journey!

Tips and Tricks for Shopping with SHEIN and ROMWE

Two of my favorite places to shop when I am on a budge is SHEIN and ROMWE. These are both amazing sites that have great deals, super cute clothes, and fun, unique pieces. The biggest thing about these two sites is that most of the clothes are made in China. Because of this, people are often asking me about sizing and quality. To help you out, I am putting together a post of all of my tips and tricks to help you shop these websites like a pro!



My first piece of advice would be to remember where you are shopping from. This is not a place that I would recommend buying basics that you think are going to last. To be able to sell these pieces at the prices that they do, the material is usually not a super high quality. I would not recommend buying your business suits or evening gowns. This is definitely a place to buy trendy items that are usually only in-style for a season. With their amazing prices, even if I only wear an item once or twice, I don’t feel bad because I did not break the bank!



My next piece of advice would be to always check the size charts. Both sites are great at giving you very in-depth measurements. Because of the way the items are made, a size is not going to be generic across the platform. You may need a large in one top and a medium in another. I always check the charts before I even consider ordering a piece. Some things just will not work for me and, while I am alright with that, I definitely want to know before I order. If any of the measurements seem like they will be tight, I will order one to two sizes larger. Chinese sizes typically run a lot smaller so do not let it discourage you if you need a bigger size. This is true for most people!



Along with the size charts, I would also recommend reading reviews on the item your are hoping to purchase. There are usually quite a few reviews on every item so your take time and read through what people have to say about the item. A lot of people add pictures and this is great because you can see how the item will fit on an actual person and not just a model. Most everything looks good on a size 00 model so I definitely prefer to see the item on someone who is an actual size. If an item does not have any reviews it is mostly likely because the item is brand new. Unless you absolutely are in love with the item, I would not recommend purchasing without first reading a review. The reviews tell you about fit, quality, material and overall appearance of the item and people are usually very honest.



My next piece of advice would be to use those coupon codes! Both sites always have some sort of deal happening so it is very beneficial to check those out when you place your order. I usually only order when I know that I am able to spend $50. That is usually the starting point for the best deals and it is the point that you need to spend to get free shipping. Because the prices are so low, you can usually get a few items so it is definitely worth hitting that point. Search through the earrings and handbags to help add items to your cart and really make the most of your purchase. The statement earrings are gorgeous and usually only $5 a piece and there is a ton of “inspired” handbags that are super budget friendly.



My final piece of advice would be to just have fun. Order something that you many not otherwise have bought. The prices are so good that you do not have to worry about feeling guilty. I like everything that I have ever ordered from SHEIN and ROMWE. No complaints. Almost everything is good or great quality and the pieces are just so unique that I really stand out in a crowd. I get more compliments on my pieces from this site than anything else in my wardrobe.  Many items I have had for a few years and I still continue to wear. They are fun, unique and trendy, and with a little care on my end, they have become some of my favorite items in my wardrobe.



Hopefully you found this post helpful! I can honesty tell you that I love shopping with SHEIN and ROMWE and I know you can find something you love. Just remember my tips and tricks and it is sure to be one of your favorite, trendy pieces! If you end up making a purchase, let me know in the comments below! I always love to hear from you!

A Little Adventure in Matilda Jane

I have come to find that raising a tiny human is truly the most rewarding thing in the entire world.

Her imagination. Her creativity. Her thirst for life. I am amazed that I brought that tiny little miracle into the world every time that I look at her.



With an imagination that big and a smile that sweet, I just love dressing her in the cutest clothes and giving her the coolest toys to play with. Thankfully, I have found some truly amazing companies to make my life as a Mom a little easier.

First up is the adorable clothing company, Matilda Jane. I got lucky in the fact that one of my local Savannah friends is a Trunk Keeper. I love being able to see all of the new pieces as well as all of the sneak peeks of what is to come.

In this outfit, Vivi is wearing the Heartfelt Tunic. I love the fun strawberry print and the fact that the tunic can easily be layered with jeans or leggings. My child LOVES strawberries so she was so excited to wear this cute top. Instead of pants, I chose to layer the tunic with the Square Dance Overall. I cannot get over how cute these overalls are. They are so incredibly soft and the polka detail is absolutely adorable. They are adjustable so she will be able to  wear them for the next few years.




I love Matilda Jane because their fun patterns and prints really capture the essence of childhood. She looks like my baby when she wears their clothes and I love seeing her innocence and curiosity come to life.

Matilda Jane also makes clothes for teens and adults that are super cute. Every piece has a touch of whimsy. Whether it be through a ruffle or a peplum hem, you know that you are getting a special piece, perfect for every girlie-girl or those who are a child at heart.




Another one of our favorite companies is Little Adventures. I have posted about their dress up clothes previously  in another post and we still love them just as much. Feel free to check out the post and see Vivi frolicking around in the Spanish Princess Dress. These dresses are amazing, look very similar to some of our favorite characters, and they can be washed in the washing machine. There have been many days that she wears the dress all day and she loves wearing them out to run errands.

Little Adventures recently released a new product called Novelty Wings. These adorable wings velcro around the neck and have little loop holes for fingers. Once on, Vivi was able to dance around, pretending that she was a butterfly, or imagine that she was a unicorn flying high in the air. Just like their dresses, the wings are machine washable and a super great quality.



To celebrate this product release, I am hosting a little giveaway over on my Instagram account! Want to earn an extra entry, just leave a comment below and tell me your favorite thing to do with your kids or grandkids! Also make sure that you are subscribed to my blog so you don’t miss out on a single post. If you can’t wait and want to go ahead and order something adorable, just enter code MRSFOWLER15%​ at checkout to save 15% off your entire purchase. The dresses and wings are super affordable so you can get a really good deal on an adorable outfit with the code! They also always offer FREE SHIPPING in the USA. This would be perfect to add to an Easter basket, or just surprise your little prince or princess!

I can’t wait to see what you get! Let me know or tag me in your pictures on Instagram! I always love hearing from you!




Spring has Sprung

I am loving that it is starting to warm up here in Georgia. We have had some exceptionally cold days and, while I do love the cold, too much starts to freeze my Southern blood. Here recently, on a very nice day, I was able to style some outfits for spring. It was so nice to be able to pull out my lighter layers and some of my favorite spring accessories.





The first look features the cutest light-weight thermal from Tobi. To add a little extra style to the top, I left the two bottom buttons unbuttoned and added a knot. I love the added detail and it makes the top that much more special. The material is super light weight so I know that I will easily be able to style the top with white skinnies or a cute pair of shorts in the coming warmer months.

For this look, I opted for a great pair of destroyed denim. This pair runs large and long! They are absolutely amazing but I had to order one size down and order a short! That never happens with my long legs! I also added some super cute accessories that I plan on styling on season long. I cannot say enough about the earrings. They are even cuter in person and have some really amazing details. I have already worn the shoes more times than I care to admit. They are super comfortable and go with almost anything. The handbag doubles as a backpack so it is perfect for keeping my hands free to chase my super fast toddler.

For my next look, I piled on all of the layers to create the cutest “weekend-ready” look! The star of this look is this super comfortable black shift dress from Tobi. The material is so soft and it has the best fit. I paired it with a great fitting chambray to give it a more casual look. I knotted the chambray for extra detail.

The accessories really stand out in this outfit as well. Instead of using a necklace or pair of earrings, I opted for a bandanna. This helped to up my casual vibe and really gave the outfit an unexpected look. I also love that the knot in the chambray mimics the knot in the bandanna. For shoes, I threw on my favorite tennis shoes, so I could really keep up with my active toddler. I swear, she runs faster that I do most days! To cover up my un-washed locks (#momlife) I decided to go with a hat. This one is so cute and has the perfect sized brim. It is great for everyday wear and beyond affordable. I finished the look with the cutest Kate Spade Camel bag and an adorable pair of heart-shaped sunnies!

For my last look, I pulled out my absolute favorite spring shoes and handbag and decided to mix up the seasons. This Tobi bell-sleeve top has the best velvet detail down the side. It features a thick, black stripe, paired with a smaller blue stripe by the wrist. I really feel like it was an unexpected detail for the top and I love how well it paired with my spring accessories. But the details don’t stop there on the top! There is definitively a party in the back when you turn around and reveal a cute knot detail, that shows just a hint of skin. It is such a fun addition and will really help to carry this top over to the summer.

To add even more detail, these jeans have a great button fly. I actually did not own a pair of button-fly jeans so I am happy to now have a pair in my collection. I also added a great pair of monogrammed sunglasses and a fun pair of tassel earrings. There are so many great tassel earrings in stores right now and most of them are super affordable. I love that the statement earring trend is carrying over into the spring because it was my favorite trend from the fall and winter months!

Hopefully all of these looks give you some inspiration for spring. I am definitely looking forward to the warmer months and cannot wait to put even more outfits together!

Southern Motherhood: A Mom’s Night Out

Through this little world of blogging, I have been privileged to work with so many amazing companies and brands. What is the best is when you get to connect with even more amazing people.



That is exactly what happened when I received an invitation to attend a Mommy Blogger Dinner. A beautiful calligraphy addressed invitation, done by One Nine Design Co., arrived in my mailbox and that was just the first sweet surprise. I was thrilled at the chance for a night out and even more thrilled for a chance to connect with other Mom Bloggers. It is always great to find a group of women that you can connect with on so many different levels.



We all met at the sweetest little house that was rented through Savannah Air BnB. It was quaint and had so much charm, just like the streets of our gorgeous city. I was greeted by some truly gorgeous ladies, a beautiful tablescape designed by our hostesses, Faythe and Kate, and a chilled glass of Barefoot Wine & Bubbly Rose‘. These lovely ladies are both editors over at Beauty & Lifestyle Mommy Magazine. The blooms for the table were provided by Ivory and Beau and they were simply stunning.




We spent some time chatting before we were treated to a yummy meal prepared by Faythe. We enjoyed a fresh Strawberry Salad, followed by Deconstructed Smoked Salmon & Potato Soup. There was also lots of crusty Italian Bread, great for dipping!

The best part of the night came with dessert. It was a decadent Chocolate and Strawberry Cake by Vintage Soul Cakes. It was a masterpiece to look at and a true delight for your taste buds. I was given a very large piece and I have to say that I definitely ate it all.




It truly was an amazing night and it was so nice to be pampered and just relax for an evening. As a Mom, I don’t often get moments like that to myself so it was nice to be able to sit back and enjoy every minute. Each of the ladies that I was privileged to spend the evening with is just a remarkable woman who is really tackling Motherhood like a boss. None of us claims to be perfect, but we all just try to do the best we can it whatever circumstances we are given. We have so many different backgrounds but we were able to connect over the fact that we are Moms. That right there is a unique tribe of women who can tackle whatever life throws at them.



I encourage you to check out each of their blogs and Instagrams. I am constantly inspired by each of them and count myself lucky to call them my friends.
