HEALTH: 3 Reasons To Treat Yourself!

1. You’ll be more active; here is how I figure. When you look good, you feel good, we all know that, when you feel good you want to push yourself to continue to feel that way, right? Tasting small victories can go a long way for the body and mind. So in theory spending money to get new active wear you love to get into will only push yourself to get out in it more often. Right? 2. It’s more affordable than ever; quality active wear doesn’t need to put you behind on your mortgage payment, not with how main stream trendy active wear has become. Case […]

FASHION: #RockTheCrop Movement

I posted this to Facebook the other day but felt like it needed far more attention that just a social media rant share. You guys! Can you believe it? Body shaming is still something that goes on in 2015? People still feel the need to judge others choice of clothing solely based on their body type. I’m mean it’s like we’re all in elementary school and our parents still have control over our wardrobes and just how much skin is appropriate. Why is this still happening? And of all people, why did Oprah let this happen in the pages of her magazine? Q: Can I pull of a crop top? A: […]

{MINI} FASHION: It’s all Black & White

{Joe Fresh Shirt  //  H&M Pants  //  Jacket c/o Memoiyo  //  Joe Fresh Boots  //  Miss Giggle Buns Headband}   It was one of those morning, we rushed out the door assuming it would be ridiculously hot outside like it had been 2 weeks running, and we step foot out the door and realize we actually may need our jackets. Not only might we need to cover up but those sandles were wearing are probably not appropriate if that nasty rain cloud comes through on her threats. Back in the door to dress according to the weather, grabbed a jacket and switch out our toe bearing shoes for….. BOOTS MAMA! I […]

FASHION: Versatility with Hudson’s Bay

When I get approached to style an outfit, I get excited. But when I’m asked to style a few outfits for a store I shop at faithfully, I get all sorts’ of giddy. Hudson’s Bay asked me to style a few pieces from their INC International Concepts line showing off its versatility; obviously I agreed. Not only do I love Hudson’s Bay and their many clothing lines, but versatility is what I look for in every piece of clothing that enters my wardrobe. My closet is by no means a walk-in my friends, each piece must be chosen carefully and strategically. Let me tell you about a totally inappropriate way […]

FASHION: His & Her “People Footwear” Style

HERS: Old Navy Tank & Jeans // Charlotte Russe Shirt // Shoes c/o People Footwear // Citrus Silver Necklace HIS: Old Navy Shorts // Target Shirt // Shoes c/o People Footwear Get ready to add shoes onto your weekly monthly dusting routine. For real people, the comfort of these babies will have you leaving your current shoe collection in the dust, literally. You won’t wanna wear anything else as far as I’m concerned, so my suggestion is, get 2 pairs, 1 in a fun color (like I’ve done above)and 1 in a neutral, white or black. Sammy and I are casual dressers 98% of the time, with the other 2% of our […]

{mini} FASHION: Fashionable Advice

{Joe Fresh Jeans // Shirt c/o Melijoe // Old Navy Vest // Target Shoes // Miss Giggle Buns Headband } When Sofia gets new clothes she must wear it yesterday. It’s quite serious actually, I have to be sure that I wash any new clothing before she even sets eyes on them, as once she catches wind of the new residence moving into her closet she is all about how fast she can get into them. Could this actually be a gene that I have passed along to her? Like eager-fashion-beaver or something? I dunno what it is, but no doubt we both have it in our blood. …mama, these clothes make me smile […]

FASHION: Crystal Clear

{Old Navy Jeans // Target Shirt & Shoes // Necklace c/o Alison Storry} Accessories are what makes me. If I didn’t have accessories I would just be the walking advertisement and serious supporter of jeans and a tee. 93% of the time this is the start to my outfits for the entire week, weekend are a different story, less fancy and more plaid pj pants with the only added accessory being a bra when company arrives. My eyes are always hunting. Hunting for the perfect everyday necklace or the most adorable earrings or better yet a bracelet I can stack without suffocation. My neck, ears, and wrists can never get enough, much to […]

FASHION: Spring is near

Because Fall is nearly over and we can’all use a little wardrobe inspiration for the warmer weather ahead. Am I right or am I right? Nothing beats a washed dark denim, a ridiculously cozy knit, and bracelet wearing boots; I mean it, nothing beats it! Who’s excited to start buying short sleeves and begin baring our skin again? Haul out the tub of body butter we all promised our skin we’d lather it in, and get to it. SHOP THIS LOOK Jeans.  Top.  Sweater.  Boots.  Bag.  Sunnies.

FASHION: wrap me up in your love

{Old Navy Tee, Jeans, and Boots // Sweater c/o Woolovers // Blue Line Hat // Forever 21 Glasses // Gifted Purse} Casual is sorta’ my thing *toot toot*, yes that’s the sound of me blowing my own horn; but when it comes to making an everyday casual outfit exciting, I honestly think it’s all about the accessories. For me I start with the top and work my way down. How’s my hair, is it socially acceptable or has it crossed the line of being obnoxious? To hat or not to hat, that is the question. Next, we move to the face, earrings are a must, diamond studs […]
