I have a confession to make…I don’t like my left arm. Why? Because its bigger than my right which makes buying long sleeve shirts and blazers difficult. I know this may sound silly but for me it’s something about myself I don’t like. While I dislike my uneven left arm, I’ll still show it love and let it hang out in sleeveless dresses or tops. Basically what I’m trying to say is no matter what you dont like about your body, embrace it. Dont let it stop you from loving yourself or accepting who you are. In light of recent events in this country, life is too short to sweat the small stuff. So be thankful for who you are and rock on!
Have a wonderful weekend!
My big ol’ left arm! LOL

Happy Hump Day all!
1. Eshakti Dresses
I’m going to need a second job to afford my love for Eshakti’s
fab dresses! The best thing about Eshakti is that ALL
of their clothing (skirts, shirts, dresses and jackets) go up to a size 36! Plus they can customize any dress to fit your measurements. How great is that?!
I didnt think any game could surpass my love for “Words With Friends” but “Ruzzle” has! My nickname is “bxphlgal” if you wanna play!
One of the BEST dramas on television right now (next to Scandal of course!). The series is about US Deputy Marshall Raylan Givens trying to enforce the law and old demons in Kentucky. Superb acting, complex characters and explosive storylines are the highlight of this show. I highly recommend checking this gem out on Tuesday nights at 10pm on FX.
4. Museums: I love museums but I don’t get to visit them as much as Id like, so this Spring Im going to make up for lost time. I have trips planned to the Barnes Foundation (here in Philly), the Guggenheim, the Museum of Sex (yes its a real museum! lol) and the Studio Museum of Harlem.
5. Fun, flirty necklaces:
What are you currently loving right now?
Have a great day!
Here are some of my favorite Spring items that are all $40 and under! There are a lot of great clothes out there for a gal on a budget. I already have the JCPenney dress (worn here) and I LOVE IT!
What are some of your secrets to shopping on a budget?
Have a wonderful weekend!
Happy Monday all!
Now that the holiday season is pretty much here, all kinds of glamorous party wear is being offered. But did you know that it’s not just for cocktail and formal parties? You can add some glam to your work outfit with just a few tweaks. Try wearing a sequin tank underneath a cardigan. Pair your jacquard pants with a button up and flats. Or if that’s not your cup of tea, how about that dress hanging in your closet with the beading around the neck or hem ? By adding a cardigan or blazer you can transform it into a work appropriate outfit! That is what I did to this fabulously beaded eShakti dress. Plus if you have an after work holiday dinner or party, lose the cardigan and add some heels for the perfect after hours ensemble.
How do you do to add glam to your everyday look?
Have a wonderful evening!
