The Faux Fur Stole

The Faux Fur Stole - Waketon Road Blog

Is there anything more “Old Hollywood Glamour” than the (faux) fur stole? The stole has been making a comeback this winter and I jumped on the bandwagon right away. I love to dress up a look by adding a little glam and the stole is the perfect way to do that. Adding faux fur to any outfit brings an element of vintage playfulness. The trick for me is how I can make wearing a...

How To Be More Productive

How to Be More Productive - Tips on how you can maximize your productivity on Waketon Road Blog

At the beginning of 2017 I wrote a post about some of my goals for myself this year. I’m trying to look at this year as a time for growth rather than resolutions. I never keep resolutions because they usually mean cutting something out or adding something that wasn’t there before. I’ve learned over the years that I need to ease into things in order for them to stick. So in the...

This week we have been...

With Valentine’s Day just a few weeks away I can’t help but crave a little extra sweetness. It’s just that time of year when all the candy starts to line the aisles in the stores and the pink and red sprinkles appear.

San Diego for the Weekend

San Diego for the Weekend on Waketon Road Blog

I’m just getting home from my weekend in San Diego visiting my hubby. Brian is in the Navy Reserves and every year he has a two-week duty somewhere. The past couple of years he has been lucky enough to get San Diego. I never complain because it’s the perfect excuse for me to take a long weekend and visit him. I feel like it’s been ages since Brian has been...
