Fashion | Belk Spring Fashion Preview 2015

Hello Beauties!

I'm sad to say that this year I missed the Belk Spring Fashion Tour with Belk's Fashion Director, Arlene Goldstein.  Her tours are an event I look forward to twice a year.  Even though I wasn't able to attend this year, as always, I have a peek into the Belk Spring Fashion Preview just for all of you.  This season, Arlene focused on four style statements, including Garden Party, Sport Chic, Spare Me and Islander.

Personal Style | Plaid Duster

Hello Beauties!

When I saw this plaid duster on Ashley Stewart's website last week, my mouth dropped open and I knew I had to have it.  When it arrived, my husband said it looked like a pajama gown.  Got to love him!  I knew I had to style it in a fun way and make it my own.  Adding my favorite pair of faux leather leggings from my last style post and leaving the duster slightly open did the trick.


Natural Hair | Four Lessons I've Learned in Four Years of Being Natural

Hello Beauties!

I can hardly believe I've been natural four years.  It seems like just yesterday I went to the salon to do the big chop.  When I went to the salon for my big chop, the stylist was afraid to cut my hair.  She wanted me to be absolutely sure before she did the chop so she cut some of it, told me to go home and think about it and if I still wanted to do the big chop tomorrow, she'd allow me to come back and cut it for free.  Needless to say, I went back the next day, nerves and all, and let her cut the remaining portion of my hair.


Healthy Living | 99 Pounds to Go...

Hello Beauties!

It's hard to believe it's been over two months since I wrote my first healthy living post.  At the time I wrote it, it was right after discovering I was having a few health issues that definitely couldn't be ignored.  For the past month, I have thought about updating you all about how I was doing on my new journey.  Now that the holidays are over and I'm a month into my new job, I figured this would be a great time to update you on how I'm doing.
