Just a few things you probably don’t know about me……..
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.

Hey Loves! This post is long overdue. These pieces were sent to me by the lovely Latreacia, owner of Monee Elizabeth, about a month ago. I’ve worn each piece around 3-4 times, but kept forgetting to photograph them. Monee Elizabeth is a very new company. She actually opened her Etsy shop on Nov. 1st, which is the same day as my blog anniversary! I’m so honored that she asked me to help her spread the word about her company. What I love Continue reading →
Let me tell you what I hate. I hate when you buy a pair of over the knee boots & they fit perfectly in the store. Well, when you decide to wear them, they still look good on you. As the day progresses, you notice that you have to keep pulling & tugging on them to keep them up. At this point, you’re really really frustrated because they didn’t Continue reading →
Hey Loves! Hope all is well. I had such a relaxing New Year. I even got up & cooked the “traditional” New Year’s menu, which I rarely do. I also don’t make New Year’s resolutions. Why should I wait until the new year to start setting goals for myself? I set them all year long. I strive to do better every day.
I have been getting a lot of questions about my hair routine. Honestly, I haven’t developed one yet. Is that bad? Most of the time, my hair is a wash & go. I just can’t seem to get a routine down pat. Continue reading →
Hey Loves! I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday. It just seems like the holidays roll by too fast when they fall during the work week. I can’t hang out as long as I would like because I have to work the next day. I think I’ll be doing the same thing I did last yearContinue reading →
Hey Loves! How was your weekend? Mine was ok. I didn’t do anything. My hours at work are so crazy, I slept in most of Saturday. I can’t complain though, cause the money is great! That means more shopping, right? Speaking of shopping, I have been on a boot craze lately. I think I’ve gotten like 6 pairs in the last 2-3 weeks. I’ve been meaning to film a haul Continue reading →
Hi Guys! Since the month of December has rolled in, the Christmas Holiday is right around the corner. That means parties, work events, and tons of social gatherings. Now the question is “What do I wear”? Normally, the ladies love to go all out in sequins & glitter, gowns & party dresses. I’m just not that gal. I do love a little glitz & glam, Continue reading →
As you may have noticed, leather sleeves are popping up everywhere & on everything. I wanted to join in on the festivities, but didn’t want to spend a lot, since this is a trendy piece (and well, I am frugal). I was looking through my closet, and noticed I had this Old Navy cropped trench that I hadn’t worn lately. Then, I Continue reading →
