Ohhh girl, let me tell you. The struggle has been REAL trying to be comfortable in my clothes over the past few weeks. Since this is my second pregnancy, I am showing a lot faster than I did with Camille. I’m only 16 weeks and I don’t think I was this size with Camille until I was about 20 weeks. Therefore, I had to find some comfy bottoms to work into my wardrobe. I think there is a limitation as to when one should have on sweats or track pants seven days a week as a wardrobe option lol. I’m just saying!

 

I had some old maternity jeans that I kept from my last pregnancy. When I tried them on,  the jeans offered little relief, the fit was not flattering AT ALL and they lacked style. They were bootcut, no distressing and my butt looked less than impressive lol.  Y’all know I love distressed, ripped jeans and really wanted a pair this go around to work into my wardrobe. Thank goodness PinkBlush has a few options in various colors that fit perfectly and still allows me to be all stylish and what not.

 

Listen, when I got these in the mail and put them on, I literally exhaled. Lol, they are so comfy, my butt looks good in them and the distressing on them is perfection. I can’t wait to order a few other colors such as grey and black. Now I have a pair of go to jeans that I can go from running errands with Camille to date night! I enjoyed pairing it with my faux fur jacket and booties. It was nice to look stylish the day we shot this look … never mind that I’ve been in pjs or sweat pants all weekend long lol.

 

PinkBlush also offers NON-MATERNITY options. So if you aren’t preggers, you do not need to feel left out. Definitely check out their regular clothing line for great, affordable pieces as well. There is something for everyone!

Hello Loves!

 

I am so excited to share this great news! We are expecting our little bundle of joy in June!! I cannot be more excited to share with my readers that I am pregnant. Y’all it has been so hard trying to keep a secret and camouflage this belly. I am so relieved that I can now spill the beans and share with you such an exciting moment in our lives. We have been planning to grow our family by one more and it finally happened! Sometimes we wonder if God hears our prayers and the answer is yes, yes HE DOES!

 

2017 was such a hard year for my family. We went through a lot! When I looked back over the year, it just seemed like things weren’t going the way we planned. After multiple UNEXPECTED home repairs, trying to get pregnant, my husband and I both having to get new cars a week a part from each other, my dog getting hit by a car and passing away and lastly, the unexpected loss of my mother-in-law in September, 2017 has not been the kindest to us. It was where you kind of questioned if God was taking you through something, to teach you a few lessons? And if so, when was this period of trials and tribulations gonna end? Lol. It was just a tough time. Apparently God had a plan!

 

Just as we least expected it, I found out I was pregnant in October. Let me tell you, when I took the test I just knew it couldn’t be. I waited a few extra days before taking the test because I just didn’t think it was so. Also, its nothing like a wasted pregnancy test. Them babies aren’t cheap! Lol.  But, there it was! As soon as I saw that positive, I just heard God say this is the light at the end of the tunnel. I couldn’t wait to tell Eric. The timing was perfect,  I gave him the best surprise on his birthday! He couldn’t have been happier.

 

I am not one to share with everyone as soon as I find out that I am pregnant.  The first trimester is such a critical time, so we kept the surprise from family and friends until I was 13 weeks. It was such a relief and so fun to reveal to the family we were expecting on Christmas Eve. And now, I am finally sharing this with you! I am 16 weeks pregnant and if you want to know how I’ve been feeling…. sick and tired. Literally sick and tired!

 

How will this change the blog now that I am pregnant?

I plan to continue blogging as usual. But, it has been a little hard not feeling at 100 percent. Also, I feel like I have nothing to wear or nothing that I am excited to wear lol. Maybe its just a mood that I am in. I’ll probably be rocking more sporty looks, because all I want, is super comfy clothes that I don’t have to tug on or adjust all day long. But, I am sure you all would like to see some maternity fashion as well, so I am gonna do my best to share maternity and non maternity looks. I can’t make any promises though, with Camille all I wore was Target t-shirts and maternity pants lol. I’ve got to do better this last go around!

 

And we just found out today what we are having. I am keeping that a secret until I figure out how I want to reveal the news. I am claiming 2018 to be GREAT and so should you!!

Bell Sleeve Velvet Wrap Top $18!

Layered Tassel Earrings $13

 

This velvet top screams Valentine’s Day to me! Its so pretty, soft and gives off the right amount of sexy and romantic vibes I must say. Especially with the off shoulder and pretty velvet texture. I had to share this velvet top with you all so you can grab it now. Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it. So lets go ahead and get some Valentine’s Day outfit ideas in mind shall we?

 

I’ve fallen prey to the velvet trend and simply cant get enough. Its something about a super soft fabric such as velvet that makes it so soft, luxurious and even comfortable. I think this top is also perfect for Galentine’s Day if you are celebrating with your girls too. For $18, you just need to grab this top  ASAP! You never know when you’ll need it, hey better safe then sorry right?!

 

I just wanted to pop in for a quick post to let you all know about this top. Are you following me on Instagram? If so, you should! You definitely want to be “in the know,” regarding all of my content that I don’t always share on the blog!

 

I linked a few other velvet options for you below! Is the velvet trend one you love too?

Happy New Year!

 

You’ve probably seen this color block coat around for a while now. I surely have! But, I saw it pop up on my Instagram feed not too long ago and here we are. I now own one! And its a keeper! You guys know my love for coats, so this truly is no surprise to you that I have, yet another one. I really like how I can wear head to toe black and look like I did something to myself with this coat on. Because lets face it, thats kind of what I had on underneath this coat in these pics. And well, its a look! lol.

 

This color block coat has been around for some years now. Just about every blogger I follow had one when it first came out. So naturally, I didn’t want to participate in getting something EVERYBODY and they mama was wearing. Now that its popularity has died down some, I decided I would go ahead and get in on the action. Are you like that too? When everybody is wearing it, you want no parts of it. But, once the craze is over, you’re here for it?! Well, thats me! I don’t believe anything really goes out of style. Not if you take it and make it work for you. If you want to wear a darn skant (the skirt over pants craze in the 90s) and you can make it look GOOD in 2018?! Girl! That simply tells me you have true style and make things work for you, not everyone else!

 

Happy New Year!

I wish I had a New Year Eve “word” for you today, but it hasn’t hit me yet. I’m gonna take some more time over the next few days to figure out what is on my heart and mind to deliver it to you. Sometimes I have a motivational or from the heart blog post for you guys and sometimes I don’t. But, life is like that you know. I rather share whats really on my heart then fake it for you. Understand?! Good!

 

Chat with you soon!

Hey Loves!

Let me fill you in on something. I LOVE coats! I really do! Outerwear is one of my top clothing pieces that I love to wear. Even though I live in Texas, it does get cold enough to have a nice coat on hand for those Winter days where a little jacket just won’t do. I really love coats with a nice print, such as this plaid coat that I got recently from Shein! When I saw this beauty in the black and white, I just HAD to have it!

 

It was super cold the day we shot this look, about 40 degrees that morning. I will say, this is NOT a heavy coat. Its more like a heavy weight duster or cardigan. So you must make sure to dress warm underneath. I don’t want you to think that all you need is this coat and you’ll be warm. I would say its perfect for 50-60 degree weather if you wear light clothing underneath. Nevertheless, its very comfy and stylish plaid coat that hangs beautifully. I loved pairing this plaid coat with orange/red booties to add some color to this simple look.

 

How was your Christmas?

I hope you all had a very, Merry Christmas. It was great to spend time with family, see Camille open her Christmas presents and eat all the good food. To tell you the truth, my favorite moment on Christmas is after the last guests have left, you change into pajamas and fix that second or third plate and have dessert lol. Its nothing like popping off that bra and getting into those comfy clothes and being able to fully relax. Am I right?

I don’t know about you but Christmas snuck up on me this year! Before I knew it, it was time for the craziness of taking Christmas pictures, school events, Christmas dinners, shopping and oh yes, Christmas cards! Christmas cards is something that I always wait until the last minute. Sometimes, I don’t even get them out at all. But, Shutterfly came to the rescue! I used Tinyprints last year, which is now obtained by Shutterfly. So still same great personalization options, customer service and even provide rush orders. Whew, because thats what I had to do this go around for sure.

 

Shutterfly is super easy to use as well. All you do is select what card type you love, upload your pics and use the customization options of your choice to make your cards extra special. You can select if you want a colored envelope and customize the envelopes as well. Envelope liners can be added too to jazz up a plain envelope. My favorite feature is that I can input the addresses to everyone on my list and have them printed on the envelope! OMG, it saves soooo much time to have the addresses already printed on the envelope. I literally just added the liners, stuffed them and sealed them closed. Game changer!

 

Christmas is basically over, but if you want to start the New Year off with a bang, you can send out Happy New Year cards! I think its a great way to start the new year sharing with your friends and family a positive wish. You can also shop Shutterfly for Birthday Party invites, Wedding invitations, Announcements and more.

Ok so let me start off by saying this Zara sequin sleeve jacket is no longer available. I purchased it at Zara’s last sale which was during the summer. Its one of those jackets that you know will cause attention. You will get compliments all day long from fashionistas alike! I wore this to brunch before the shoot and couldn’t take it off, I loved it so much. So before I posted this jacket, I made sure to go to google and search to find similar sequin sleeve jackets like mine. Fortunately I found a few! So don’t be too mad at me, ok?!

 

I’m a sucker for army green, especially in a jacket. It compliments my skin tone and I am all for it! So I typically always reach for one when I am out shopping. But, what I liked about this one, was that it was not the same as my other 3 olive green jackets lol. This sequin sleeve jacket makes such a statement and uplifts a plain outfit. I mean all I am rocking is my “Boss So Hard” tee (get you one y’all!) and some ripped jeans. You can easily see how this jacket transforms this simple outfit and makes it stand out.

 

I know I’ve been MIA lately. But, the holiday season has me so busy with preparing for guests, shopping for gifts and trying to get everything in order. But, I do have some looks for you guys coming up soon. So stay tuned!!

Y’all, this Zara dupe bodysuit is a good one! I initially saw this bodysuit on Zara’s website and in store and I adored it. Bodysuits have a way that fits and lays so easily on the body and perfect to wear with jeans or a skirt. This bodysuit retails at Zara for $50! Well, your girl found it on Shein for only $22! Save your coins when you can ladies, save your coins!

 

I kept it simple and paired it with my favorite pair of flared jeans, layered necklaces and these gorgeous shades from The Impeccable Pig. These shades scream 70s vibe and pretty much set the entire look off! This Zara dupe bodysuit looks like the original version and fits just as nice. You could even layer a fur vest on top of this to take it to the next level. It was warm on the day we shot this look, so I didn’t even bother to pull out my heavy fur vest. But, don’t you love it when you can create a variety of looks just off of one piece? I sure do!

 

I linked a few  Zara dupe bodysuit that I thought you might love too. I’m contemplating in grabbing them all because its such an easy way to create a simple, stylish look. These days, with the chaos of the holidays, no one has time to spend on trying to create an outfit. With this Zara dupe bodysuit, just put on cute bottoms and go on your merry way!

 

How do you love this Zara dupe bodysuit?

How would you rock it?

Have you heard of the saying, time is precious? Well, let me tell you, this year I have truly learned and embraced the meaning of that saying. The value of my time is something that I have become fully aware of this year. I am not sure if its just getting older and wiser, or what! But, I’ve started to examine what or who requires the use of my time and who I am willing to give it to. No, I am not being extra. But, it seems like we give so much our time to people or places we want to go and things we want to do and we burn ourselves out. We are exhausted, drained and in need of a recharge because we are trying to do every darn thing. Do you understand what I mean?

 

I figured out that I sometimes have that fear of missing out. You all know what I am talking about, our days and weekends are packed with all of these activities that we don’t want to miss. I don’t know who I  think I am fooling because half the time I really don’t want to go or be bothered. The day of the event comes around and I am tired from the busy week or just want to hang with my family.

 

As a blogger, I get invited to quite a few events. Most of these events are during the work week and downtown. Which means I have to coordinate with my husband on him getting home in time from work to be home with Camille and then spend over a hour in traffic during rush hour to attend these events. Then I have to be socialize for a few hours while I am there and then trek back home in the evening.  So I’ve spent my time doing all of this just to leave the house for a few hours and basically show my face. Exhausting to say the least!

 

In the past few months, I’ve started to examine the value of my time. I don’t know where it came from. But, I felt the need to really figure out what I am trying to do and accomplish when I stretch myself thin. Ultimately, it is up to me to figure out who or what I am going to give my time to.  God is of course number one and I know He deserves way more time from me then I give Him. Also, the most important of course is my family, everything else is truly secondary. I also feel that friendships are deserving of my time because lets face it, sometimes those friendships help keep us sane.  So once we figure out who deserves our time, its easy to figure out who or what does not right?

 

Not always! This can sometimes be trial and error. Sometimes we don’t realize when we allow people or things to take our precious time away from us. We spend time arguing, hating, comparing and y’all favorite word, being petty with some folk that we should have cut off a long time ago. We put ourselves in situations that often leave us uncomfortable and questioning why did we waste our time here? Girl, this is when the value of your time need to kick in and you start evaluating things a little deeper. We’ve all been there, but I am here to tell you that I am reclaiming my time as Auntie Maxine said!! And guess what, you should too!!

 

So start taking a closer look on who or what you give your time to. If it requires too much, its time to determine if its worth it. I know I am! I don’t always have to attend every single event that stresses me out before I even get there. Or try to make time for people who don’t make time for me. Now I realize the value of my time is worth something. We have to use our time wisely! Once you see there is value in that, you’ll begin not to take it for granted as we all do!

 

How do you give your time?

Do you evaluate it closely or find yourself giving your time to everyone?

Thanksgiving is around the corner you guys. My Thanksgiving table decor is all done!! I may be a little late sharing my Thanksgiving table decor and dining room reveal with you all, my apologies, but I had a difficult time pulling it all together. I wasn’t even going to do anything special with my dining room table this year for Thanksgiving. I’m more of a go all out for Christmas kind of girl. But, a friend of mine started talking about decorating her home for the holidays and it got my juices flowing. I headed to Pinterest and got inspired on all of the pretty holiday table settings. So naturally I had to plan and execute of course.

 

If you follow me on Instagram, then you have been updated on some of the Thanksgiving table decor items I was purchasing over the past few weeks. I saw these “Thankful, Grateful, Blessed” plates at Hobby Lobby before Halloween and fell in love. At the time they were $19.99 with 40% off. Now we all know Hobby Lobby has that good 50% off deal that happens all the time. So I patiently waited until after Halloween to purchase these because I knew they were going to mark them at 50% off. I went last week and found the LAST SIX PLATES!! I tell ya, what God has for me, it is for me lol!! All for 50% off too. Score!

 

I ran across this navy, velvet table runner by Tahari at Homegoods and loved it for my Thanksgiving table decor. It adds a richness and uniqueness to the table as its not your typical “Thanksgiving” color. I knew paired with gold and jewel tone table decor that it would look perfect against the dark wood of my dining room table. Now, I am not a fake flower kind of girl. I adore fresh, but I realized that I do not keep up with fresh flowers as I should. I end up wasting money because I forget to change the water or snip the ends. Let’s blame it on doing life with a toddler shall we? Hobby Lobby also had 50% off on florals a while back, so I gathered these rich tone floral stems to compliment the dining room. I think the faux flowers work just fine, don’t you!?

 

How do you like my gallery wall? My husband and I created our gallery wall when I was pregnant with Camille, about three years ago. Mind you, we had already lived in our home for about 3 years already. Sometimes, it just takes a while to get those things done on your wish list. I can’t really guide you on how we went about planning and executing this gallery wall. Just know I recall it taking a lot of planning in terms of what pictures we wanted to use, selecting the size of the pictures to go along with the frame, spacing and getting all of this on the wall. My advice to you is allow yourself plenty of time and patience, research tutorials and don’t nail anything on the wall until you are finally sure! Lol!

 

But, most importantly, what does Thanksgiving mean to me?

Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for all of the wonderful things we have been blessed with in life. Family, friends, health and so much more! I like to reflect on all of the things that I have been blessed with and won’t ever take for granted. 2017 has been a rough year for my family, but through it all we are here persevering, leaning and holding on to our faith! Therefore, not only are these plates a beautiful statement piece on the dining room table, but exactly how I feel every day when I wake up!
