Armed with a $200 gift card to Target, I set out to find some beautiful pieces to spruce up my sofa area . I fell in love with these Ikat Toss Pillows as soon as I saw them. They were the perfect fit! My current living room color palette consists of browns, oranges, and creams. I didn’t want anything too bold, because whatever I chose still needed to blend well with the colors I have now. I also fell in love with the figurals. They were mostly white, and I needed them to brighten up my space. I always complain to my Sweety that we need brighter furniture pieces in this space. It seems like all of our side tables & tv stand is dark brown. So when I found this cute little metal accent table, I knew I had to have it!Continue Reading
Hey Loves! So the birthday celebrations are over for me. I’m now back to reality. I did, however, enjoy my day (s). I celebrated with those who are closest to me…including my adorable little nephew. (see below.) Continue Reading
Good Morning! Its Monday….again. I think the weekends are only meant to tease us cause they just roll by too fast. I’m not complaining this Monday though, because its only 2 days before my birthday! I have no idea why I’m super excited about my birthday this year. I have no plans to go anywhere. I really don’t have anything to do. I was going to go to Vegas, but changed my mind. This is a special bithday for me because I’m turning the big 35. I was so scared to turn 30, now I’m turning Continue Reading
Hey Loves! I am loving this bun so much better than the 1st one. I used the Marley hair this time around. I wanted this hair the 1st time, but didn’t feel like going to the beauty supply store. Doing my hair this time was such a breeze because I knew what to expect. I few of you have asked for a tutorial on the other style, and I will do one Continue Reading
It’s Thursday, Valentine’s Day!!!!! I want to wish you all a very Happy Heart Day! Even if you don’t have a significant other, you should still make the best of it. Buy yourself something…… HUMPH! I know I would!
Anyway, as I was editing these pics, I was wondering why on earth I never wore this blazer. It is just too darn cute! It’s a great cut & the pattern is amazing. I have entirely too many blazers that Continue Reading
So…….I’m super excited because I am finally able to get my hair in a ponytail! I was struggling with this hair on Sunday, yall. I washed & conditioned it….easy. But, I was trying to do some type of updo thingy, and could not braid the back of my own hair for the style. I got so frustrated that I almost cried (I know, TMI). But sometimes, you just get like that when things aren’t Continue Reading
As you may not know, I’m a Food Network fanatic. Every free chance I get, that’s what I’m watching. The other day, I was watching Trisha’s Southern Kitchen, and she made these delicious looking apple dumplings. They looked super easy to make & only required a handful of ingredients. Truthfully, I only had to buy the biscuits. Continue Reading
I always try to be nice to people. I strive to be kind-hearted, and treat people the way I want to be treated. Anytime I’m around people, I always try to smile & look approachable. If I see an elderly person or a mother with kids struggling to get their groceries in the car, I always try to help. I try to remain polite & respectful to anyone I’m around. It just seems like the nicer you are, that feeling radiates, and people you’re around start to act the same. I love doing random acts of kindness. It makes me feel so much better inside. This year, I plan to do so much more in my community. I’ve wanted to feed the homeless for years, but never followed through with my plans. Giving back doesn’t necessarily mean giving money. Time is so much more valuable. Whether that means mentoring a troubled teenager or spending time at nursing homes with people whose family doesn’t visit them. I feel that I’ve been blessed so much that there is no excuse not to give back & pay it forward.
