Happy Saturday everyone!

I hope youre having a wonderful weekend so far! About a week ago, a reader requested I do a Valentine’s Day look book. Honestly a look book wasn’t on my radar but she inspired me to do one, so here it is!

V Day Dinner with the Girls:

Some of my best V Day memories are with my girls.  A girl’s night out celebrating calls for a sparkly skirt and colorful heels.  Your fab outfit will have heads turning all night long!

P.S. This is my V Day outfit!

V Day Dinner with your Sweetheart

If you and your sweetie are heading out for V Day, a curve loving dress is the way to go! Dress it up with a statement necklace and add a fun clutch to complete the look.  Trust me, your sweetie wont be able to take his/her eyes off you!

V Day Dinner at Home

Having V Day dinner  at home for many people is a better option than sitting in a crowded restaurant.  Being comfortable doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style! Try a trend (like mixing prints) to elevate your casual look. And remember…romance can happen anywhere!

Happy Hump Day all!

Sorry I’ve been a little MIA these past two weeks.  I’ve been going through some personal issues that honestly I had been ignoring for years. It’s very easy to put up a facade of being okay when things are not okay. What I’ve learned over  the past couple of weeks is that taking care of oneself emotionally is just as important as taking care of yourself physically.  You can’t ignore one and concentrate on the other, you have to take care of the whole package.  At this point in my life I’m learning how to take care of the whole package. Lemme tell ya it aint easy but I’m determined to work through my “stuff” with the appropriate supports.  I’m blessed with a wonderful support system that surrounds me and accepts me for who I am which makes  my journey  a little easier.

With all that said, blogging is something I love doing and will continue to do so.  Blogging has given me so much and to abandon it is not an option.  I will do my best to keep my blogging schedule up but if I slip here and there, dont be alarmed…Im not going anywhere!

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Saturday all!

I would be remiss if I didn’t include my outfits I wore on my vacay.  Since I’m committed to my 30 Day No Shopping Challenge, I didn’t buy anything for the trip.  This was the first time I had to shop my closet for a vacation and not rely on buying new clothes. It felt good to pick out items I haven’t worn in months.  Also this was the first time I didn’t over pack.  I simply took what I needed which surprisingly fit into one small suitcase!

Have a great weekend!

TGIF all!

One of my goals this year was to meet and connect with my readers in person.   I envisioned having brunch with you ladies (and some gents)  laughing and having fun.  Last month, I met lovely event planner Erika from Your Chic Is Showing and shared with her my idea.  Erika has graciously put together a brunch meet and greet for me! Yay!


The meet and greet is on Sunday, October 27th at 12pm at Smoking Betty’s here in Philadelphia.  Seating is limited so RSVP here before October 23rd!  I’m SO excited to meet everyone. Your continuous support and love means so much to me.

I hope to see you at my brunch meet and greet on October 27th!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Monday all!

Now that Fall is here, it’s natural to want to add an item or two your current wardrobe. Adding affordable pieces allows you to stay within your budget and update your selection.   Walmart’s studded boucle jacket can be dressed up with a skirt  or down with jeans and ankle boots.  The jacket can easily become a staple in your wardrobe and be worn again and again.  A leopard print skirt is also just as versatile and is a great addition to any closet. The skirt pictured is currently on Simply Be’s website for  $50, but they are offering 30% off your first order! So the skirt is actually $35! Perfect!

What pieces will you be adding to your Fall wardrobe this year?

Have a great day!
