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?

I often receive emails and DM’s from my followers asking for help with getting help with blogging, partnering with brands and to check out their blogs to give my thoughts and opinions on improvements.  I guess after almost 3 years in the game, I better know a little sumthin’! Not only that, its also flattering that you trust my opinion. You guys respect what I do and see me as someone you can approach to even ask me!! It truly makes me happy that my followers see me in this light.

 

Today I was working on a “Pitch 101” presentation to go over with a friend of mind who is also a blogger. In the past week or so, I’ve gotten a few emails or messages asking about blogging. It got me to thinking about offering blogger consultation services to those of you who are interested in speaking to me regarding blogging. I truly believe this will be a great benefit for those of you who want to learn more or just go get my feedback.

 

I will offer different packages for the blogger consultations so that there is something for everyone. From the person who  aspires to start a blog but no clue on where to begin, how to pitch and partner with brands, improving your social media presence to performing a blog audit if you’re already in the game. How does that sound??

 

I will be working on getting the blogger consultation packages going over the next few weeks. I believe this is going to be a great way for us to grow together in this blogging world. Its no longer the time to operate in fear, but to achieve the things we feel passionate and strongly about! Am I right?!

 

Are you interested in my blogger consultation service??

 

Click HERE to review my services and pricing and lets get started! If you have any questions before getting started, I  would love to hear from you via email if you’re interested.  If you are not interested in blogging, share this with a friend who is! If you are a business owner and  want some assistance with Social Media, drop me a line too!

Y’all, Girlfriends was one of my absolute favorite shows back in the day. Joan, Toni, Maya and Lynn were the Girlfriends I wanted in life. Stylish, fun, supportive and always giving the best one liners you could ask for. So when I came across this Girlfriends tee on Instagram, I had to have it!! I know you want one too!!

 

Toni was my favorite character. My bad, Toni Childs Garret! She was full of one liners, fashions and bomb hair! Yes, we knew she was always doing the most. But, I loved her regardless! Joan was a close second. The one friend thats always there for Toni’s antics, however, her own life was just of a mess too. Her fashion was always on point. I dreamt of one day wearing bad (fierce) suits and clutch bags into the office just like Joan. I always hoped she would find love, even though she always played herself in relationships.

 

Maya and Lynn were those hilarious friends that told it like it was and had zero filter. Maya, especially!! I thought her tv husband, Darnell, was so fine! But, I was legit happy when they got back together after their divorce. That scene at the church was everything!

 

Lynn! This child right here was the free spirit we all want to be, but too scared to commit to in life. Yes, she was pretty much a free loader with her fifty degrees. But, we loved her anyway and sometimes you have to love your friends through their craziness.

 

Next Shipment date is November 7th, order your Girlfriends Tee ASAP!

If you don’t do anything today, make sure you order this graphic tee to add to your collection. Oh, and this pink, midi skirt too!! With the Girlfriends tee and midi skirt combined, you are letting everyone know where your style genius came from!

Hi There!

 

My girl Melody of Blingaholic88.com had an awesome idea of doing a fall inspired, Dallas blogger shoot entitled “Slaying In The Country!” Fall glam in a country setting is the perfect juxtapose if you ask me. Fall is my absolute favorite season, especially for fashion. So of course, I was so on board to meet with a few local Dallas bloggers to make this happen.

 

Its hilarious that we all showed up to the shoot in warm wine tones and black. It was not planned at all, trust me! But, isn’t our back drop amazing?! I plan to return back and take a few holiday pictures with the family. We really had a good time at this shoot. I mean, I think us jumping in heels is pretty hilarious in itself. Am I right?

Go Follow these Dallas Bloggers!!

Well, let me introduce you to the lovely ladies in this shoot. Kenya Denise of KenyaDenise.com, Melody of Blingaholic88.com, Brittany of BriDezel.com and Ashly of FoxyVeggies.wordpress.com. Be sure to head to each of these ladies blogs to see their individual pictures from this shoot as well. They are truly the sweetest and I know you will like their content.

 

Do you have any plans to gather up your best girlfriends and slay in a photo shoot?

Y’all when I tell you I was so excited when I saw this denim dress at Anthropologie the other week. This dress hugs the curves, has a corset top, heavy denim material perfect for layering for the fall season but was also under $50!! It didn’t take me long at all to take it straight to the register to bring it home! I mean who can beat that deal right?

 

I grew up in the church. Church of God in Christ (C.O.G.I.C) to be exact! I’m talking all day Sunday, Tuesday night, Wednesday Night and back again on Sundays. We could not wear pants period. So I always had a slew of skirts and dresses on hand. A denim dress was a constant go to for me to wear to church during the week. So when I saw this piece, it gave me all the feels. Yes, it was annoying to only wear skirts and dresses, but to this day I cannot go to church in pants lol. I guess old habits die hard.

 

Anyways, this dress has the options of being worn so many ways. You could layer a tie knot blouse underneath, a turtleneck or even top it with a blazer. The denim is a nice, heavy, weight so its perfect for fall. I already see myself wearing this dress with a blazer and some baaaad knee boots. I seriously cannot wait for it to get cold hear in Dallas. My boots and fall clothes are so ready to come out and play! Dallas weather, whats good?!

 

Question of the day?

Tell me, when it comes to going to church, do you wear pants or ONLY a skirt/ dress? I would love to know!

 

Check out this dress and a few other cute denim dress options that I have linked below!

Hey Loves!

 

If you’re on Instagram like I am and follow a lot of fashion bloggers, you will see the plaid blazer appears to be the “IT” item of the fall season. Its not hard to see why not: clean classic lines, a great layering option and a simple, sophisticated look. I cant wait to  pair my $35 Target blazer with wide leg pants, jeans or long, flowy skirts!

 

Ok, I know your eyes grew big when you read that this blazer is only $35 and from Target! I saw this piece online and on one of my many, weekly trips to Target. I knew I had to have it! It has a deep purple line if you look closely, which makes it so fun to add contrasting colors to make the purple show even more. I went all jewel tones with this oldie but goodie handbag, my trusty Zara bandana scarf and gold, satin mules!

 

Graphic tees are always popular and a go to for when I want to make a plain outfit more fun. I went home to Detroit a month ago and had to get another Detroit Vs Everybody tee in white and black. Be prepared to see me in this bad boy all the time. Y’all know I love my city and I represent Detroit whenever I can.

 

So how do you like the plaid blazer trend?

Do you see yourself participating? I’d say its a definite staple that you may be surprised how often you reach for it! Especially with the crazy, changing temps we’ve all been experiencing lately over the U.S.  I’m already seeing myself pairing this blazer, belted with some palazzo pants!!

 

See you Sunday for a special travel post! I’ll be sharing a travel diary of our family road trip to Traverse City, Michigan!

Hey Loves!

 

Happy Sunday! I receive so many emails, DMs or what have you from those of you who are interested in blogging. The blog life can be A LOT!! I haven’t gotten to where I want to be with blogging. It is my hope to do it full time with the income to match. I got a ways to go before I get there. But, let me tell you, the journey has still been quite rewarding.

 

Blogging requires time, money, and passion! If you plan to only blog once a month or barely that, you need to re evaluate your goal. You MUST be consistent. Blogging is an oversaturated industry. I always tell those who are interested in starting a blog, that you have to treat your blog like it’s your best friend. You don’t go months without saying hi to your bestie do you? If you did, your relationship may suffer a bit and you may not be as close as you once were. Thats why consistency is important! If you followers don’t see you or hear from you, they move on to the next blog. You have to remain in front of the faces of those who support your blog. Otherwise, they will forget you and move on! You want to grow your audience, in order to do that, you must remain present!

 

I have been blogging for about 2.5 years. Majority of that time I was working a full time job. Well, I was laid off several months ago. I am actually looking into a new career in the field of Social Media. I am hoping to work with a brand or company as a Social Media Specialist or Strategist using what I have learned in blogging. During this time of being laid off, I had to be more mindful of my spending habits, which also meant not shooting with my photographer every two weeks. Insert tears here! lol. It’s not too bad, as its hot here in Dallas, so the thought of doing a shoot in this heat drains me. So I have to look for other ways to get pictures done and keep the blog going.

 

Queue the title of this post, work with what you have!! My husband blessed me with a DSLR camera for Christmas and honey it’s the best gift ever! I’ve used this baby constantly!! I am yet learning how to use this camera to the best of its capability. I took online workshops on photography, looked on Pinterest for tips and just practiced on how to use my camera.  Today I had the day to myself with Camille in school. I had to get this top and beach blanket photographed for the blog. So I pulled out my tripod, my handheld timer and headed to my back yard. I just wanna say that I appreciate my neighbors for their gorgeous pink tree in the background. It was just what I needed for a pop of color lol.

 

So even though this photo isn’t filled with a bright wall, or a downtown backdrop, its still a pretty picture. Sometimes we get caught up in to the look of things, that we don’t admire whats around us. The trees, the sunshine and the breeze that blessed me this morning. Now, the mosquito bites I received on the other hand, I can’t do anything about that! lol.

 

I encourage you to make the best with what you have in this blogging adventure. People are looking to see you for who you are. Who is the girl behind the lens? What is her personality? What makes her laugh, what makes her dance?! Embrace that and enjoy the ride!

Hey loves!

 

So I was contacted by Chrystal, the owner and designer of Fifteen and Fifteen, a handbag and accessories company, to check out her handbag line for review. As soon as I clicked on her site, I was immediately drawn to the fanny pack and knew I had to have it. This Fifteen and Fifteen fanny pack is leather, big enough to hold my iPhone 7plus (because thats important) and you can also wear it as a cross body or clutch. I love when I can get a versatile handbag that I can style multiple ways. It also comes in burgundy and black. Absolutely perfect for fall season, am I right?!

 

Its so funny, I remember back in the day (late 80s, early 90s) rocking a fanny pack a time or two. My mom had one too. It was the age of convenience over fashion. If we were headed to a theme park or field trip, the fanny packs came out to play. Too bad they were not as cute as this one. Clearly we committed a few fashion dont’s back then! Lord, bless us!

 

Anyways, its hot as heck here in Dallas. So I kept this look simple and wore it with t-shirt and jeans. Oh, and this Zara bandana scarf? I happened to find myself there the other week (oops). I had to have it for only $12! Sometimes, you just need a little “something” to pull an outfit all together and I believe this scarf did just that. I’ll be wearing it all season long with blazers, jackets, wrapped around my handbag and even a bracelet. I can’t wait!

 

Where can you purchase this Fifteen and Fifteen fanny pack?

 

Head to Chrystals site or check out the ones I linked below. Everyone will be asking you where can they find this unique piece. Best part, its very affordable too. Trust me, you won’t be sorry!

Hey Loves!

 

So I was in Target the other day (what else is new?) and saw this color block leather skirt beauty on the rack. Of course, I had to pick it up and try it on. This color block leather skirt is a new piece from the Who What Wear collection at Target. If you are not familiar, Who What Wear is a clothing line that features on trend, affordable clothing options exclusively at Target. I am a sucker for anything leather, so add in a bit of color blocking and all for $32?! I’m here for it!

 

I typically don’t shoot fall looks so early considering its about 90 degrees here in Texas. But, I wanted to get this look out to you guys before it sells out. Its such a great piece that you can wear with blazers, sweaters, blouses. Shall I go on? So I sacrificed myself a bit (and my edges lol) to bring you this look even in the heat. I do it for my followers!

 

I kept this look simple by pairing it with a black bodysuit and black heeled sandals. The skirt makes such a statement on its own. There’s really no need to do anything else. Don’t you love those pieces in your closet that just speak for themselves?

 

Have you checked out the Who What Wear fall collection at Target?

 

What new items had you at hello?? I linked a few of my picks for you to check out as well.

 

 

Happy shopping!
