Let the right white dress bring your sexy back. #fashion  
White dresses are right up there with denim shorts and maxi dresses when it comes to summer fashion. But, if you're fashionista like me, you don't want to wear any old summer white dress. You want one that screams style through interesting cuts, tailored fits, and girly details. You want that dress that can make a statement just as cute and bold as the rest of the colorful ones. So where do you look?  Right here! I did all the heavy Googling for ...

Take the tribal trend from the runway to your everyday life. #fashion   #summerfashion  
Instyle One thing I’ve been noticing a lot in fashion land this summer is the awesome use of tribal prints. While I have my own personal issues with the word “tribal” (lumping all types of fashion inspiration that isn’t of the western world into a word such as ‘tribal’ is wrong on so many levels, but I’ll save that rant for another day)¸it’s a trend nonetheless and one I’m definitely feeling. Big name designers like Alexander McQueen, Valentino, ...

Summer shopping tips that are very budget friendly! #fashion   #saving  
www.blaqvixenbeauty.com It’s been almost 2 years since I left the workforce to do the stay-at-home mom/freelance thing and my wardrobe has been in flux ever since. Going from professional work wear to everyday casual is not easy, especially if you don’t want to rock sweats every day.  Coupled with the fact that I’m losing weight (Yay!) and I’m on a serious budget, makes things very interesting in the shopping department. This summer is no d...

Beach coverups anyone?? #fashion   #summerfashion  
Ahh summertime. It's the season of pedicured toes, stylish sunnies, and fierce swimsuits as we spend many days lounging by pool or playing in the sand.While finding the right suit can be a challenge,getting the right coverup isn't. Now, don't get me wrong, covering up when you aren't swimming isn't about dressing down. It's all about taking that swimsuit up a fashion notch. It's about finding something that you would wear all by itself if y...

Time to start summer shopping! #accessories   #fashion  
According to the calendar summer will officially be here in a few weeks (Florida is way ahead of the game) so the main thing on every fashionista’s mind is what to stock up on for this fun and hot season. My summer fashion game is really laid back and simple. Jean shorts, cute tanks, stylish flats, and easy dresses. It’s just too hot to get all complicated with outfits. Does that mean our wardrobe should be boring? Absolutely not! This i...

This hair mousse is the business! #hair  #hairproducts
Hair confession: I was never a fan of hair mousse. When my hair was relaxed there was no need for it and now I thought it wouldn’t play nice with my hair. I was afraid it would dry my hair out, making it all sticky, crunchy, and gross.  Even when I was contacted by One N Only to try some of their hair products and then sent over the mousse along with complimentary shampoo and conditioner, I was still a bit skeptical. But, as your resident product...

What every lazy girl needs in her closet to look good this summer! #fashion  
I’m not gonna lie, I’m a tad jealous of girls who can come up with a super stylish and very put together summer outfit that’s new and different at every party. I used to have that type of time and energy – from scouring blogs to get inspired to spending hours in the store to find just the right outfit. Yeah, those days are gone. I don’t have the time and quite frankly, I’m lazy. I just need to have an outfit I can count on for whatever the fashio...

Five #beauty looks you absolutely have to try this summer!
I don’t know about ya’ll, but the summer is really making its presence known.  With the temps hitting 80 degrees by 8 am, it can be kinda hard to get motivated to put yourself together before stepping out.  But it’s totally doable, especially if you rock one of these beauty trends to your next BBQ. Bright Pink Lipstick Bella Kinks Tumblr If you’re not rocking this lip color by now, you’re totally missing out. Once you find the right shade, your ...

Your girl is test driving Motions Hair Natural Textures Line. #naturalhair  
  The Motions brand and I go way back to my relaxer days. Their shampoo was the only one I use because it always left my hair soft and moisturized. Since I went natural I sadly had to let it go for more curly friendly products. So you can only imagine how excited I was when they reached out to me to try out their new Natural Textures Line. With 9 products that take us from cleansing to styling, it promises healthy and great looking hair whe...

Who's ready for a pink party with +Mally Beauty ??
I can’t exactly pinpoint when I fell in love with pink. Purple was always cool but if you asked me to wear anything pink a decade ago, I would give you a serious side eye. Maybe it’s this blog fault, getting me all into the bold and pink thing. Could be my daughter’s fault (those pink baby girl clothes will get you every time!). But for the past year or two now I’ve been jonesing for a pink lip color. Some colors I’ve tried in the past were just ...

Being a mom has definitely helped my blogging life! #blog  
My Mom and I! Mommy’s Day is this Sunday and I tell you, when you become a mom you get a whole new perspective on the holiday. Before I would get on the gift bandwagon and get my mom flowers, perfume, and everything else the commercials tell you to get her. Now everyday is mother’s day for me when it comes to my mom and I, especially when my daughter pulls a stunt that I’ve done to her! To say I have a newfound appreciation for my mom is an ex...

Looking for a beauty splurge? #skincareproducts  
Mommy-hood puts a whole new spin on quality beauty time. Whether it’s a 15 minute shower party of one or skincare products that make me look like I’m not sleep deprived is are what these product junkie needs her life. Perlier’s Royal Elixir Facial Serum definitely fits the bill, an anti-aging cream made with nothing but the best natural ingredients. Royal Jelly from African bees (you read right, African bees!) ramp up collagen production and give...
