Favorite Things: Natural Hair Edition

Favorite Things Natural Hair Edition Main

TGIT! I feel like I haven’t talked about my hair here in foreverrr. Truth is, I admire you natural hair bloggers. I put so much time and energy in just getting the fro together… you want me to now blog about how I did it?? It’s not easy. So to my favorite natural hair bloggers, I appreciate you! But because I did start this journey on the blog it’s only right to give you all an update but rather than the normal regimen of what I use, and how I use it (which I will do before the month is over promise!), I thought I’d do a favorite things because I’ve given up on monthly favorites. Oh and there may or may not be a giveaway at the end ;).

Spiritual Sunday: Pray in Your Own Way

Spiritual Sunday_Pray in Your Own Wasy

Happy Super Soul Sunday beauties!Growing up and even in my early adult years, I always had this rigid view of prayer. Kneeling, head bowed, hands closed together, speaking words to God. I pray this way on most days. I think there’s something powerful about coming to Him in the most traditional way. I also am a firm believer in speaking things into existence so I really do feel there is power in your words to Him. As I got older though, I felt there was something missing yet I could never quite put my finger on what it was.

Happy Halloween: Makeup Muses

Happy Halloween

Every year I tell myself I’m going to I’m going to do one of those really dramatic and totally creepy makeup looks for Halloween. Last year I even went as far as to pick up face paint and accessories. Welp. I have yet to do one. I’m just too busy trying to make sure Captain America has his mask and getting the right TMNT costume because I still don’t know which color Raphael is. I’m kidding. Red…he’s the red one…right? Mommy life. Continue Reading

Style Files: Fall Wish List

Fall Style Wish List 2014

As excited as I am about it being Fall, sadly my wardrobe was BARELY ready for the chilly 50 degree weather that hit Philly last week. Where does the time go? I really thought I had a little longer to get my Fall wardrobe together but…no. Over the weekend I did some very light shopping to pick up some staples but there are of course there are items that I haven’t gotten yet. Not exactly staples but definitely closet essentials. I’ve already put a few things on my Nordstrom wish list, you know, just in case the Mr. is feeling generous again!

Beauty Faves: Drugstore Lipsticks for Fall + Winter

Fall lipstick cover 2

I might be biased seeing as though Fall is my favorite season, but there really is nothing better than dark sultry makeup. I take full advantage of the cold months to wear as much dark lipstick as I possibly can. So it’s only right I make a post about it right? That and it gives me an excuse take all the selfies I want. I’m working after all ;). Best part of all? You can get all of these vamp babies for under $8. Yasss hunny! Continue Reading

Mommy Files: Conscious Parenting

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you’ll see me talk a lot about my boys. In case you’re new around here, I have three ages 9, 6, & 2. Up until this year when our oldest entered 4th grade, we’ve been pretty much smooth sailing. Our boys are good kids. They do kid things and get good grades. But 4th grade has been like…a whole new world. And that’s not to say things are bad, but more so I’m definitely noticing a change when it comes to parenting our oldest. So when I heard about Oprah’s Lifeclass on OWN with Dr. Shefali Sunday about Conscious Parenting I definitely wanted to tune in and figure out what is going on inside the head of kids…specifically this almost 10 year old fourth grade son of mines.

Dream Day Style + Loverly dream day

I have a confession to make. I got married…and I didn’t wear white. There it is! Two years ago, this younger (and less financially equipped lol) girl eloped with a very small intimate ceremony on a snowy morning in February…in a red dress. And I wouldn’t change it for the world! But let’s be honest, every girl wants a dream wedding so we’ve always planned that on our 10 year anniversary we would renew our vows and plan the wedding of my dreams. For all things wedding, starting out with is a must. It’s the one stop shop for brides with everything from wedding dresses, accessories, and even makeup! So when I got the chance to plan my dream day with, I was so excited to bring some of my visions to the blog.
