Bringing in Color for Fall

Hey Luvs!

Happy hump day. As much as I adore fall and darker colors sometimes I miss the brightness of spring and summer. Recently, I found a way to bring them together with one statement piece. A scarf.


As beautiful as this scarf is, I would have never picked it out for myself. My sister gifted it to me last Christmas and I finally brought it out. The orange and brown are quintessential fall, but that pop of teal screams spring and summer. Together they are everything! 

I paired the scarf with super cute orange earrings I think I found at Forever 21,!neutral eyeshadow and a big pop on the lips with one of my favorite NYX Wicked lippies, Scandalous.

This scarf just pulled everything together. I have got to find out where she found this beauty! Well, that’s I for now.


XOXO

Scarf Season

Hey luvs!

So, technically it’s scarf season, however, here in Georgia we’ve been getting up to between the mid to high eighties every day! That’s entirely to hot to be wearing a scarf, but not too hot to incorporate it as a head wrap. That’s exactly what I’ve been doing. Check out these super cute looks starring traditional scarves tied as headwraps.



These looks are perfect for me on wash days or when I’m in a hurry and have to chose between my makeup or hair. Plus, I love how each of these looks still fit the fall season without making me hot in this crazy 80 something degree weather.  

Each of these scarves are tied exactly the same and of course I’ve got a tutorial to show you just how easy it is. Check it out here.

That’s it for now luvs! Happy Friday!

Statement Choker

Heyyy luvs!

I hope you all are doing great. I have been over here struggling. I’m so excited about the fall season but my allergies are driving me crazy. I haven’t been up for much of anything but I’m trying to work my way back.

Today I wanted to share a regal look I wore a week ago starring A beautiful statement choker I got from Forever 21 when I was in New York. I pared it with a high twist out pompadour and an olive colored beat.


I absolutely love this look and this choker just sets it off. You can find the choker here. If you’re curious about the lippie it’s a nyx Wicked Lippie called Trickery. 

Well, that’s it for now.

XOXO,

Sissy & Me In The City – Day 3

Helloooo luvs,

Another day down in NYC! Sissy and I spent most of the day shopping in Time Square. We started off by taking the train into the city which was a new experience for my sister. She was so excited.

Time Square is pretty awesome and you really need several days to take it all in. Nevertheless when we made it into the city we hit up some key stores like Forever 21, H&M, and my favorite drugstore Walgreens. Each was at least 3 stories! Yes, even Walgreens! It was crazy. It was a little overwhelming but I picked up a little something from each store and managed not to do too much damage.

After shopping at those stores we decided to have some lunch. On the menu, New York’s best hot dogs, sangria and wine. The sangria was phenomenal!

After lunch we made our way further down Broadway until we ran into Macy’s, The World’s Largest Store.

Talk about overwhelming! This store is massive taking up an entire city block with 11 floors. We were only able to cover half of those before we gave up.  After about 4 hours of shopping we decided to head back to the hotel to rest.

We chilled out for a while then decided to have a classic New York City pizza. We ordered a meat lovers pizza from La Bellezza. It was delicious.

After eating and watching several upsets on College Game Day we started getting ready for the night. We booked reservations at 808 Penthouse a rooftop restaurant lounge in Queens. I pulled out lots of sequins for the evening.

On the way there I was able to capture this beautiful shot.

As for 808 Penthouse, it was pretty impressive with amazing views.

As sushi lovers we decided to get our fix and tried 2 different rolls. For drinks we both had the Pacific Sangria With sake, peach and sparkling rose. Yum!

Afterwards we decided to call it a night. We had a nice full day and was able to enjoy some great night time city views, with sushi and sangria. We felt accomplished. Next up day 4!

XOXO

Sissy & Me In The City – Day 1

Good morning!

I’m super excited because my sister and I are in New York for the long Labor Day weekend. We have never been on vacation together and she has never been to NY which makes this pretty awesome.

We had a really long day yesterday. My sister was up at 3:30am to get ready for a 6am flight.


We made it to NY by 10:30. The traffic from Laguardia to our hotel was crazy, but the views were awesome.

Whe got our hotel in the Financial Distruct early and our room wasn’t ready so we had a good few hours to spare. We decided to go get some lunch. We walked a few blocks and saw some interesting restaurants but decided on a philly cheese steaks from a food truck.


After that our tiredness started to consume us so we went back to the hotel to check in and get some rest.

For dinner I made plans to meet up with several of the ladies from my Natural or Not Hair We Come Facebook group that live in NY. Sissy and I got prettied up and headed out to a restaurant called Harlem Tavern


I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun we had or how great it was to finally meet and hang out with these ladies! They have such amazing spirits. We talked we laughed we drank and ate to our hearts content.

Day 1 down 3 more to go!
XOXO

Viva Las Vegas!

Hey beauties!

Last weekend Hubby and I took a trip to Vegas. Part quality time kinda vacation for us, part celebration for hubby and his business partner for killing it last year.  I was so excited to get away with hubby since we haven’t been on a real vacation just the two of us since before my 5 year old was born! 

Our trip was full of relaxation and good food. We honeymooned in Vegas so with this being our second trip there we decided to forgo the shows and walking the strip since we had done that before. Nope, this time we just want to relax and enjoy each other. And man, it was great. I wanted to share some outfits I wore a lot of which I showed in my birthday haul video. So…here we go

Friday evening we decided on dinner and dancing. For that I wore my simple black one piece bathing suite as a body suite and paired it with some super comfy black pants all complimented with some extra long statement earrings



Saturday day we chill axed in the pool at Luxor. Even though it was over 100 degrees outside it was still really nice. At the pool I wore an older one piece I’ve had for a while and paired it with a long black sheer cover up with slits on both sides from RoseGal.



Friday night we decided to have dinner and then just hang out in the casino so I kept it pretty casual.



Sunday was the first day of hubby’s company event. They started it off by moving us from the Luxor to the Palazzo. Upgrade! We spent the day doing a little shopping so I went with this white pencil skirt with a gold belt embellishment a teal mesh fringe shirt and some statement sunglasses.


Then it was off to the pool party with bottomless food and drinks.  So, I decided to take it up a notch and wore my black one piece bathing suite a pair of mesh pants with attached shorts underneath my black Michael Kors sandles and a gorgeous piece of body jewelry I got from RoseGal. I also pulled out my white rimmed circular mirror shades I got from the World Natural Hair show this year again. LOVED this look!


On to Saturday night the company hosted a cocktail party followed by VIP night club service. I knew I’d be doing a lot of walking that night so I wanted to keep it comfy but chic at the the same time. I decided on this super cute black and yellow bodycon dress I got from RoseGal and my black Michael Kors Sandles.




Monday hubby and his business partner attended a luncheon while I relaxed in our gorgeous room. Later it was back to the pool. This time I brought out this sexy white suite I got from RoseGal


Since it is a bit more risqué than Im used to, I paired it with a black mesh top.



And for our last night in Vegas the company hosted an amazing dinner for everyone. For this occasion I decided on a dress I got from a vendor at the Atlanta World Natural Hair Show and paired it with a pair of blue Steve Madden heals.


Dinner was amazing! They seated over 100 of us at this incredibly long table and served us some of the best food I’ve ever tasted.


All in all, we had a fabulous time! Well, that’s it for now.

XOXO
