How to Rock Wide Leg Trousers


How to Rock Wide Leg Trousers?

First off, Happy Memorial Day! In light of the Holiday, I wanted to wear something somewhat patriotic (hints to the white and blue, just missing the red... Unless my shoes count?).

Wide leg pants are a trend that is growing increasingly more and more popular. You can see them worn both casually and dressed up. Wide leg pants is a trend I enjoy. I want to share how I like to rock them and some of my favorite ways to see others wearing this modern style.

The Love We Share Is Real
I love wide leg pants because for me they have a bit of a slimming factor (when worn correctly), and yall know I'm all about it. When wearing high waisted wide leg pants not only do I look and feel leaner, but they also make my Butt look great... more like fantastic (lol, kidding...NOT!).

The Most Effective Change Equals Growth

"The only thing constant in the world is change."

How do you become a better person if you are not willing to change?
I love to self-reflect. When I think about the things in life that I long for but don't have, instead of pointing the finger towards others I look towards myself. When things aren't going according to "Plan" it's time to self-reflect! I feel what you put out in the world is what you get back. Your actions have to reflect your desires. I can want a successful blog, marriage, etc. all I want, but if I am not putting forth the effort, and open to change, those desires will never come alive.

Pretector of Peace


Are you protecting your peace?

This topic is dear to my heart. Life has many negative things to throw our way, yet how we decide to handle it is the real test.

The older I get, the more I learn the importance of peace of mind. You get to a point in life where it is only beneficial for your well-being to eliminate toxicities. Living life and trying to reach goals is ass kicking enough, You don't need the people in your immediate corner (or life in general) kicking you as well.

How To: Enjoy the Versatility of a Tunic



How versatile are your favorite pieces?
Well, mine is pretty darn versatile! I love tunics because of that reason, but also I just like the illusion its gives off of having a long torso. This piece especially is one of my favorites in my wardrobe. I love how it's fun, and free during the summers but can easily transition nicely and pair with leather leggings or a pencil skirts during the Fall/ Winter.

Statements and Staples!
I love a great statement piece. So much that I find myself always needing new pieces in the staple department. This piece, however, gives me a little of both worlds. Its basic all white body is a great staple and its beautiful detailing on the sleeves leaves just the right amount of statement. With the placement being only on the sleeves it is easy to conceal if needed (but why would you want too?) with a lightweight jacket.

Let's Recycle and Reuse.

So what can we do to fix this?

What's to be expected in a long term unwed relationship?




Relationships, When did it all get so complicated?!
You know relationships can be complicated when you can select, "It's Complicated" as a relationship status on Facebook! LOL. In these days in time, we live together, sleep together, etc., etc., etc. With the cost of living being so high I feel we are more quick to cohabit than ever before. With the comfort of it all, we loosen up our grip and our demands towards commitment fall short.

Without true (by true I mean marriage) commitment, what's really ok?

How Formation Inspired me


Ok ladies now let's get in FORMATION!!! Of course, it was everything as expected. Beyonce' gave and continues to give me so much life. I admire her truly for so many reasons. After this weekend, I feel invisible, honestly. Beyonce' is a product of hard work, dedication, persistence and more. She got me feeling so inspired going into this week, and it's not even funny.  What a great way to start the week, let's talk Bey!

Lol no wait, Happy Friday to all but them 9-5er's or mothers of school-age children... know what I'm saying! Mostly I work Monday through Saturdays and try to give myself Sundays off.

Eyes N Cream


Looking for the perfect eye cream can be just as challenging as looking for the perfect jeans.  When wearing makeup one of the most asked questions is, "what foundation do I wear?". When I am bare faced I am asked: "what facial products do I wear?".  I won't lie. I don't have an extensive facial care regimen, however Now that I am maturing (lol), and I wear way more makeup, I have begun to take it a little more seriously.

We Got Goals


It's a new month y'all, which means a fresh start or repositioning! For me, I won't lie it's a little bit of both. I have been working hard trying to shed weight, but I can afford to bump it up a bit. As far as business goes... I can always do better! Let's talk!

Tea For Diabetes



Over the weekend, my daughter and I visited my sister in Dallas. While we were there, of course, we had an array of things to do (because my sister has a huge social life, lol)! One of the things we did while there was attend the American Diabetes Association tea benefit. It was such a great event! It was both fun and informative and actually right on time for me!

Spring is Here!

Spring is here officially, so the time of fun colorful prints, soft pastel (which are really trending especially Tiffany pink and soft baby blue) is here! You get the opportunity to socialize more, be out in the sun and what best way to do that other than in style (I wouldn't do it any other way personally)? This featured look is an inspired look from the queen, of course, Beyonce! I definitely feel Beyonce's style has elevated. She is on top of her game in all aspects (and that's why we love her)! With our Denim two piece set, it's a little more versatile than our inspired look, which is a romper. Here are 3 show stopping ways I wear this look. Look #1: Of course the obvious way...

Design Your Life

Life is an ongoing battled. Learning who you are takes time. You have to go through the process of trial and error, defeat, criticism, self-doubt, etc, etc. Before you truly reach that point of knowing "self". Once you know who you are the bigger question is, who do you want to be. What fulfills you? What mark do you want to leave on the world? And when you think of yourself, who are you? How do others perceive you? Not in the sense of being a people pleaser but in the sense of pleasing your "idea" self. I find it to be most beneficial when I keep it real with myself. You can't change for the better, reach dreams and goals if you are in an untruthful/unfaithful relationship with yourself. So, be real with yourself. Be proactive. Stay motivated, positive, hopeful and start to design the life you want to live!

Happy New Year!


With a new year, I always feel a sense of refreshment. One of my goals throughout this year is to keep that feeling thriving the whole year.

New Years resolutions… Well, I don’t really believe in new years resolutions completely. Of course for the new year, I have set goals for myself. A new beginning is always a great time to create a fresh start and make positive changes in the right direction, but some people wait solely for the new year to start making changes. Change and goal setting should be constant. Goals are something I believe we should always set for ourselves, daily, weekly, monthly and annually. This year I have set one new goal and the others are goals I have been previously working on.

I feel the best way to start this year off is to be thankful first. Thankful for life, good health, a loving family, new opportunities and any and everything God has blessed me with. Last year I began a Gratitude journal which really contribute to me being a happier person overall. Practicing gratitude I feel will be instrumental in reaching goals I have set.
