February Love Mix: The 80s

Kelly is a smokin’ hot California Mama who can out run a grizzly bear-because she wears a sparkly skirt. She lives in the O.C. with her three whip-smart kids, vows never to stop eating cupcakes, and manages a snowboarding addition with aplomb. You can try to keep up with her at According to Kelly.

Kelly goes 80's!

In my mind, nothing symbolizes the true essence of LOVE, better than the 80’s. sure, the 80’s were full of big hair, loud makeup & a few outfits I’m sure we’d all like to forget… but who can deny that the 80’s produced some of the best love stories & songs ever? Today I’m sharing with you some of my all-time favorite 80’s love ballads, many of which were inspired by my favorite 80’s movie classics.

    I still own my Tiffany CASSETTE. Oh yes, I wrote “cassette.” That tape is off the hook! 🙂
