The Last Bits of Summer

Summer

Good day beauties! Yes, I am still here. I know I have not posted in about a week but I really needed a break from blogging to work on a few other things. I know when it is time to take a break when blogging starts to feel more like a chore than something that I enjoy. Anyway, back and refreshed, I just want to officially give my farewell to summer. It is still hot here in Texas and I suspect it will be for a couple more months. I didn’t do half of the things that I wanted but I can’t and won’t complain. I am still here and life God is good.   I totally […]

If you need some motivation and keeping it real talk, this is your book! I will not go into […]

Feeling A Little Hippy: Palazzo Pants

Palazzo Paisley Pants

Palazzo pants are defined as a woman’s loose wide legged pants. I think it’s safe to say that these funky pants are one of my absolute favorites in my collection. I cannot not even begin to tell you how many compliments I received on this outfit. I was lucky enough to run across these pants at TJMaxx. I felt like I hit the lottery. I decided to pair it with a simple black top since the pants has so much going on. I like this outfit for several reasons: very comfortable, paisley design, conversation starter, and the small gold detail on the top. On this day, we were at City Centre in Houston. We took […]

Birchbox totally wowed me for the month of August! I am actually interested in trying out every single product for this month.

The thrill of suprise…lol! Let me share with you what goodies I got for the month. Harvey Prince Perfume has a grapefruit-sandalwood blend that leaves your skin smelling youthful. Apply it […]

Friday Favorites: 8.8.14

Friday Favorites

TGIF y’all! Was that country or what? Today I have a second post for you of my Friday favorites. If you missed my first post today, check out the lovely Jada Pinkett Smith in her latest photoshoot.  She is smoking honey! I am a major shopaholic and sometimes things get lost in my collections. I was so excited to rediscover a few items. I have been holding on to this Merlot candle for a few weeks. I swear when I fall in love with a candle, I don’t really want to burn it. But then, what’s the point in having it? I am actually half way through her and plan on burning the rest of her […]

Jada Pinkett Smith: Net-A-Porter’s The Edit

Jada Pinkett Smith in the edit

Jada Pinkett Smith’s photoshoot in Net-a-Porter’s The Edit, is absolutely stunning. The actress, director, producer, is 42 years old and wears it beautifully. I believe she even has a band not to mention that she is married to the Will Smith. Remember Will running behind that car on Bad Boys? Anyway, Jada Pinkett states in her interview that she takes a relaxed approach to working out. She claims she works out less now and is in the best shape ever. Her relaxed approach is basically incorporating exercise throughout the day, not just at the gym. I totally agree with her. In The Edit’s photoshoot, Jada Pinket Smith rocks a sleek bronzed look. It gives her […]

Model Devon Windsor in Harper’s Bazaar

Devon Windsor in Harper's Bazaar

Model Devon Windsor in Harper’s Bazaar Magazine killed it for me in the June/July 2014 issue. The bleached blonde beauty stopped me from turning the pages and demanded my attention on her photoshoot. Here eyes were the focal point in her makeup and it was very well done. Devon Windsor came across very intense and mysterious to me in this particular photoshoot. Devon Windsor, 20 years old, from Los Angeles is actually new on the scene and have modeled for Prada in the Spring 2014 collection. She has also worked for Chanel, Dior, and Victoria’s Secret. The statement coats Devon Windsor modeled in this photoshoot also blew my mind. Fall 2014 is all about displaying […]

Today I just want to share with you a few things that I have been into lately. I haven’t used my laptop in forever. I finally decided to bring it out of hibernation to give it a go. After a good system cleaning, it works great. I am always in my makeup room/office on my computer. I really needed a change in scenery. It feels amazing to sit in my kitchen blogging, looking out into the backyard. My […]
