Hi Fashionistas,

Happy Friday. Hope everyone had a great week so far. Mines has been so busy with work and just being productive. Part of being busy is always why I make sure to know the time so that I can be present in the moment and enjoy. So when the friends from at Jord reached out and sent me this lovely watch . I could not resist.

Jord makes their watches out of various woods such as Maple to Zebrawood. The watch I choose is made out of zebra wood. I must say I am so in love with it because it can defiantly be worn on a everyday basis that allows you to step out and be seen. What makes this so great is that there are watches for both men an women.

So I teamed up with Jord to do an amazing giveaway which is so simple. All you have to do is click the link provided below give your email and that it is it. One reader gets the to win $100 towards their watch of their choosing.  Do not get discourage for every person that enters, you will receive a $25 off towards your purchase. So I see it as a win win for everyone.

Hi fashionistas,

Happy Tuesday hope everyone had a great weekend and start to the work week. I spent the weekend just doing some self care such as getting my nails and feet done as well as going to the movies. 

I saw the movie the shack and it was so amazing a powerful message so i suggest everyone go and see it.

Now if you dont know now you do. I love all things thrifted and vintage. Everything in this look was thrifted down to the boots. 

I love thrifting as there is nothing better than have a one of a kind unique and different item. 

This coat i loved it when i saw at the salvation army and my sweater is from divaexpress and leather skirt from instagram friend. The boots are from poshmark the detailing of the boot is amazing.

This look is perfect for work and a date night.  Hope you enjoy the look until next time.

All about Balance 

Tags

, ,

Hi fashionistas ,

Happy Wednesday.  I hope everyone had a great weekend and great start to your work week. My week started off with a big bang literally. 

Balance is something that we all try to manage especially when we are working professionals. For me being a full time career women and blogger has many challenges that i have recently discovered.  Let me correct that i have been noticing it for a few months but still been trying.

If you do not know, i am foster care supervisor over an intense therapuetic unit so my day can start from 7 am and end at 8pm. 

So being able to blog as much as i like has been becoming a thing of the past. Even trying to do photograph has had some challenges. 

I have to often remind myself that it is ok because the blogging world can be very cruel i tell you. 

Day by day i have been learning to balance and just plan which has been going good. 

So let me know what you all think do you have issues with balancing . I would love to hear your thoughts.

Hi fashionistas,

What makes it great i can pair the vest with jeans or a skirt or wear the pants alone with a blouse or sweater. 

I paired it with a turtle neck sweater and some booties.  The hat was the added accessory. 

Hope you enjoy the look. Until next time. 

No Shopping or Tight Budget

Hi Fashionistas ,

Hope everyone had a great weekend , I spent mines relaxing but on saturday ,i hosted with a few friends a vision board party which was so much fun but i will tell you  more about that in another post coming this week.

Now i know you are wondering Drea what is with the topic. Being a fashion blogger for the last four years has been amazing but it can also place a dent in your closet from time to time due to you always wanting to keep up with the lastest fashions and just having it all. For me i just love fashion period  and i think working at my previous job which was in child welfare and very stressful at the time , shopping was a way to release my stress and other triggers.

Now that i am at a different environment and also want to change my style , i have been doing clothing purges. I am going through everything from clothing, bags to shoes. Most is being  donated and others i am planning to sell on my poshmark account. Now there are some items that i give to close close friends but that it is it.

I am also thinking about doing a closet sale but need to figure out exactly how that will work. I know i was told i should do a clothing swap which i think is nice but the previous ones ive been to in the past i was not impressed by lol.

So starting February 1 i am going on a no shopping spree , meaning only buying things that i need not the things that i want because i have enough at this time ( more than enough). I already have an accountability partner and im excited . I do not know how long  i will plan to do the no shop for maybe till my vacation coming up which is in July so that will be four months. I can do it no pressure. I will check in and keep everyone updated on how well i do.

So what do you ladies and gentlemen think, have you done a no  spend and if so how did it work out for you. I would love to hear your thoughts. Until next time.

Snacking Healthy with Newmans

, , , ,

Hi fashionistas ,

Happy new year and happy Wednesday. I hope everyone had an amazing start to the year. I must say that it has been a great kick off for me so far. 

If you dont know snacking is a weakness of mines where i enjoy all things cookies and chips although it is not the best at times. 

So when newman owns sent me over some goodies to try i was excited. For me i knew newmans for their dressings and other items but their snacks i was so unaware about. 

The good thing is that all the products are natural and organic so it gives you a healthy alternative to snacking. 

My favorite are the pretezls and popcorn and raisens which i keep at my office for snacking. My husband loved the peanut butter cups as they were his favorite. 

Do not get me started on the cookies the orange chocolate chip were so good (wishing i had more lol).

Have you tried newmans owns,  let me know would love to hear your thoughts.  Until next time. 

No Turning Back

Hi fashionistas, 

Hope everyone had a blessed and productive week. It has been a short one as i was off on friday before new years eve which is what i was happy i did as i got to spend so much needed time with my sister friends who i love adore and are family to me. 

2016 has been a year for me . I have to say there has been some highs with getting to work with brands, covering new york fashion week, and just expanding the blog where more people know who i am. As well as landing a new job.That was such a blessing.

With highs there are lows and the death of my grandfather was very hard and still hard for me to process as i love him and still do . I know he is so proud of me and watching over me everyday. 

I learned so much this year in which i can see it has helped me to put what matters first in perspective. 

So as 2017 approaches im looking forward to expanding my brand and blog more and just being successful.  

What are some goals and accomplishments you have . I would love to hear?

Kenzo for H&M

, , , ,

Hi fashionistas, 

Happy tuesday hope everyone had a great weekend. I spent it doing so overdue cleaning and spending time with my husband. I also finally worked on a media kit for myself which im so excited about.

Work has been so crazy and there is so much i want to share with the blog. Which will be coming soon.

When the kenzo for hm line came out i really wanted to jump on board but im honest and the price point was not something i wanted or could really deal with at the time. Especially if im not in love.

So on a recent trip there to the store they had marked down the items this overall dress which was 300 dollars i paid 80 dollars yes you see correct 80. 

What i love is the detail of it and the qulaity and of course the pockets cause what girl does not love a dress with pockets lol. 

I paired the dress with a simple blouse and for extra pop of color these booties and you know i love my hats so my veil beenie gave me the look i was going for.

To dress it down i could switch the boots for sneakers. What you think i love to hear your thoughts. Until next time.
