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.




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.

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.



Casual & Comfy in Calvin Klein

Happy Monday!

So, a couple of weeks ago I took a trip to Marshall’s one of my absolute favorite places to shop for shoes! They always have such a great selection. Well, I happened upon these casual Calvin Klein shoes and they totally caught my eye

I loved the color but what really got me is how incredibly comfortable they were! For just $30 I had to get them. Since then, they have been my go to shoe for casual comfort.

Here’s a look at how I’ve been styling them.

LOVE these shoes. I’ll definitely be wearing them throughout the spring & summer. Well, that’s it for now!



Forward Flat Twist & Beanie

Hi luvs!

I absolutely adore wearing beanies during the fall. They offer a little something extra to your look, are super cute and well, convenient! Let’s face it, sometimes we have those days when we don’t feel like doing anything extravagant with our hair, or maybe just want to go with a more casual look. Well, here’s a cute and simple beanie style that you can rock on days like those.

All Wrapped Up

Good Morning!

I’ve recently become fascinated with the world of headwraping. I have no idea why I was never drawn to this style before but lately I have been adoring the difference a standard scarf can make!

I’ve mainly been embracing this look on wash days. I will wash my hair, moisturizer it, twist it, put on a satan scarf or bonnet and get wrapped up! I’m able to look really chic for the day just by taking a simple scarf from my wardrobe and wrapping it around my hair. 

As for how I do the wraps, honestly, I make it up as I go along, lol. Here are a few different looks I’ve come up with. Not bad huh?


A Night Of Beauty, Recognition & Inspiration

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending an event hosted by Its My Hair Magazine honoring several black women in publication. As a black woman in publication myself I wanted to come out to support these lovely ladies and their accomplishments. Click here to see the beautiful honorees.

It was wonderful seeing these hard working and talented women accept their awards. But, most of all it was great seeing black woman support other black women.

As for my look of the evening, well, here are some pics! 

This purple infinity dress went perfect with my baby bump ❤

My hair of the evening was a combination of two dramatic chunky flat twists. I really wanted to give my face some length as its started to fill out from the baby weight. This look helped accomplish that. 

I really enjoyed this look for the night. 

Lastly, I had the opportunity to meet some amazing ladies at this event, some of which were honorees. I’m so excited about this becoming an annual celebration and opportunity to recognize black women in publication.
