Sissy & Me In The City – Day 2

Hey Beauties!

Soooo…day 2 in the city was all about sight seeing. We decided to do a full day of The Big Bus Tour which was pretty awesome. We got to see soooo many things and oh my goodness the architecture was A-MAZING!! We started with the Downtown tour where we saw Time Square , Freedom Tower, the Empire State Building and a whole lot more. Let me go ahead and dive into pictures.

After all of that downtown sightseeing our phones were dying and we were starving so we decided to have lunch before we moved on to the uptown tour. We strolled over to Hard Rock Cafe where we fueled our bodies and our phones!  We had some delicious nachos and you see that Electric Blue drink down there, one of the strongest drinks I’ve ever had in a restaurant!


I can’t forget to mention that our waiter was awesome. Super mellow but super cool. He reminded me so much of the actor Justin Long.


After lunch we headed back out for more sightseeing!  It was off to the uptown tour starting in Harlem and ending with the super affluent side of town. We didn’t have seats on top of the bus like we did for the downtown tour though so we didn’t get as many pictures, but we did catch some pretty fabulous art.

All in all the tour was great! Next it was back to the hotel to chillout!

With no idea what we were doing for dinner I took to Yelp to figure it out. We wanted entertainment and great food and we found it at Lips, the Ultimate in Drag Dining. We got prettied up with some dramatic looks and headed out.


Dinner was so delicious! We had lump crab cakes for an appetizer and lobster ravioli for our entrée. As for cocktails, we kept it simple with vodka and cranberry.

As for the entertainment, well it was hilariously fabulous! We laughed out loud ALOT!

Another fabulous day and night in the city!
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.

Birthday Haul!

Good morning luvs!

My family and I spent the long Memorial Day Weekend in Tampa Florida with family and friends. We had a great time! Hubby and I enjoyed some alone time since the Grandmas and Aunts wanted to spend time with our little guys. Two back to back date nights celebrating my birthday a little early (My birthday is May 31) was a total win! I love when I get to spend quality time with this guy.

 
After a great long weekend we drive back to Atlanta on my Birthday. We left early in the morning and arrived in the early afternoon. Although I was super tired a tried to put myself together a little since it was my birthday! I didn’t do too bad. I decided to wear a new cute dress I got for my birthday, paired with my Michael Kors sandals and adorable Betsey Johnson purse all from Marshall’s.

   
    
 
I spent the rest of the day with Hubby and my 5 year old Zavien❤️. 

I ended up getting a lot of great things for my birthday. If you want the deets check out my birthday haul here.

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.

Twist Pull Pin & Protect

That pretty much describes today’s style! My hair was really dry this morning so I rejuvenated it with Some products from the Creme of Nature Aragan Oil line. Worked like a charm!



After I added some moisture back to my hair I really wanted to lock it in so I did several chunky twists around my head (Don’t mind my wisdom hairs). 



Afte that I just pulled and pinned the twists down.



Finally I end up with a nice easy protective style that is allowing my hair to soak up all the goodness from the Creme of Nature products throughout the day! What do you think?







A Little Twist To The Crown Braid

Good morning loves!

Today’s hair is a little unusual for me in that it is not stretched…at all! I was a little lazy this weekend and didn’t wash my hair until this morning. Because of that, my hair is styled wet. I brought back out the Dove Creme Serum and Dark and Lovely Easy Twist Gel N Butter that I got in the March curlBOX and used it to style today’s hair.


As for the style I decided to put a little twist on the crown/halo braid (literally). The style is a total of 3 flat twists that I pulled and pinned into this unique style. 





What do you think?
