Relationship goals, closet goals, hair goals, shoe goals, life goals! Y’all I am about wore out from all of these “goals.” Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen a many a picture where closet, hair and shoe goals have been met! But, relationship goals?! Let’s think about it. Most times when we say or refer to relationship goals its due to a picture or a video we’ve seen on the web. The internet has a funny way of making everyone lives looks so easy breezy. Its mainly because we allow people to see what we want them to see. But, we all know that we are only seeing a snippet of someone’s life, right?

 

Now, I know Eric and I are serving up all kinds of fierceness in these pictures.  This dress by Rent the Runway, LIFE! And yes, many will look at them and say, #relationshipgoals. And its nothing truly wrong with saying that. I know its a little bit of a compliment. But, I think its important that people have a true understanding about what relationships are and the work it actually takes before we start hash tagging and what not. Relationships aren’t always easy! I don’t always feel rainbows and butterflies when I see my husband. I am more so giving him side eye about the lightbulb that needs to be changed or how he doesn’t put my lotion back after he uses it. Yes, that really irritates the life out of me lol. But, real talk, thats just some petty stuff that he does that irks me. I am sure he has his list of things that I do that works his nerves too. Eric, if you are reading this, don’t come on here listing stuff I do that get on your nerves! Don’t try me! Lol.

 

I think its so important for todays generation to fully understand the importance of healthy relationships. I see so much in the news and social media that troubles me about people getting involved with the wrong person. I know I will teach Camille that she is a beautiful, intelligent and fierce woman who deserves to find a husband to treat her as such. Its important for us as adults, to really inform today’s generation about what healthy relationships really are. They should know that healthy relationships are when you are loved, treated with respect and kindness. Also, that relationships may have its ups and downs too. I mean nobody is perfect! Am I telling the truth?

 

Relationships come in all forms and everyones experience is different. Its nothing wrong with that! So long as its REAL!!! Some of y’all are married or with your boo thang and you’ve never had an argument, you’re so deep in love and can’t spend a second away from your bae. He’s the best thing since sliced bread and your relationship is so easy. Ok, then great! But, over this way, thats not how OUR relationship roll. Eric and I like our alone time to chill and do our own thing or watch our own tv shows, we roll our eyes at each other more so than giving each other the dreamy eyes. I get on his nerve and he gets on my last. We fuss and get into arguments! There has been a few times where Eric could catch these hands lol. We’ve gone days without speaking to each other (that was wayyyy back when, the Lord has brought us a mighty long way lol). But, we also love each other very much and he supports me as if I can do anything in the world. So now that you know this, does it mean we are not considered “relationship goals??” Of course not!

 

I like to roll with this hashtag I found on Instagram that I find more fitting and just makes more darn sense, #relationshipsbelike. Yes, thats more like it! I think that helps to broaden and round out what relationships truly are. Relationships be like love, respect, honor, fussing, fighting, making up, laughter, joy, pain and support etc. Yep, this is one that I can get down with! Now trust, I am not spilling our business to the world in this blog post. But, I like to keep it real honey and if I can’t do that on my own blog, then where can I do that at?!

 

Let me know your thoughts on the matter! I would love to have some dialogue and hear your opinions!

Hi There!

 

I love New York! I just do! Its one of those cities that you can’t help but to love. The energy, the vibe, architecture, food and shopping? Yes, it’s my kind of city! It’s the perfect makings of a fabulous trip with the one you love. The husband and I visited New York for our second time together a few weeks back and had a blast! Check out my Instagram for pics of our trip! In October we celebrated our seven year wedding anniversary and we thought it was the perfect time to take a trip together. Yes, thats right. Camille stayed in Dallas with her nana while mommy and daddy had some fun! No cute little toddler was around for mommy and daddy to chase after. I did miss her dearly, like all the time lol. Anyways, I thought it fitting that we do a photoshoot together! Why? Well, to celebrate our seven years of marriage and hello its New York (a bloggers dream shoot location)!

I don’t know about you, but if my hotel isn’t right, it’s not an enjoyable trip for me! So I set out to find the perfect hotel, in a perfect location with the right feel and vibe that we would both enjoy. When I found “The Roger New York Hotel,” I was in for a complete surprise. Why? Because this hotel offers a terrace! A terrace in Manhattan with a view of the Empire State Building!! Yes y’all, I knew we had to stay there! Couple that with the boutique feel of the hotel, delicious continental style breakfast, nice sized rooms and I was all in! The fact that they also have a fabulous happy hour had nothing to do with it lol. But, as you can see, The Roger Hotel New York is completely swagalicious and provided the perfect backdrop for our shoot! If you plan on visiting New York soon, be sure you stay at The Roger! If you use the code:“BUZZ” you can get 15% off their Best Available Rate!!

How do you like the hubby’s appearance on the blog? Did he do a good job? Lol. When I asked him to do a shoot with me, he was all in and was such a good sport! He told me that he would outshine me. Boy bye! Clearly I cannot be outshined! Lol. But, please show him some love and make him feel special!

 

I hope you enjoyed this post! There is more to come with the hubby! We have another couples shoot for you next week! So stay tuned!

Hey there!

I’ve been wanting to go on a road trip for the longest!! Its nothing like packing up the car and setting out on the highway for an adventure. Well, this summer we headed out on a 4 hour road trip to Houston!! We drove up to Houston for my husband’s cousin surprise birthday party a few weeks ago. If you follow me on Snapchat (alwayzfashlate) you would have seen all the action. Oh, how do you like this color wall? I was so excited to learn that Houston has an amazing color wall at the Sugar and Cloth Studio. Of course we had to stop there before heading home!! Because you know, a blogger is gonna blog and I need “instagrammable” pictures. We only stayed in Houston overnight, but we had so much fun. I’ll have to come back again!

 

When you set out on the road for a few hours, of course you want to feel comfortable and safe. Even more so with a toddler! My husband and I do not have a SUV unfortunately. So having a SUV for this trip was necessary! I was so happy when DriveShop let us drive their 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport on our trip to Houston. On our road trip in the Outlander, we definitely realized a SUV is needed for our family. There was plenty of space for all of our gear, a surprisingly roomy back seat, trunk (essential for diaper changes, hello) and Sirius radio that made the drive even better. Oh, and did you notice the panoramic roof?? Fancy!! I really enjoyed driving this vehicle and was sad to give it back. lol. DriveShop, you sure do know how to spoil a girl!!

 

See you Thursday for my next outfit post!
