Personal Style | Fringe It


I was so tempted to wear black this week, but I encouraged myself to set the black aside for at least a day.  Don't laugh at me.  Today's look includes two things I love: boots and fringe.  Both are staples this season and the best part is I purchased this fringe poncho/scarf for only $10 from BohoBlu Curvy.  You all already know I'm a huge fan of bargain shopping, but I also love shopping with a purpose.  I was intrigued when I saw that my local BohoBlu Curvy encouraged their customers to donate gently used clothing on Black Friday in exchange for up to three 50% off coupons to be used in their store.

Fashion | The Perfect Gift Guide for Gold Lovers

This post was sponsored by I received compensation and jewelry.


Ever since I was young, I have had a slight obsession with yellow gold.  I still remember receiving yellow gold hoop earrings for Christmas when I was younger and how excited I was to wear them immediately.  Perhaps that’s where it all began.  My mother, whom I’ve always admired, has always worn only yellow gold.  I’ve always viewed gold as classy and timeless so I’m excited to share a gift guide centered around my love for gold.  If you know someone who loves yellow gold, they will love these gifts.  Plus, whether you’re on a budget or willing to splurge, there is something here for you.

Personal Style | Homegrown Girl


Over the weekend, my husband and I visited my hometown.  It was great spending time with my family, visiting my home church and even eating burgers from one of the hometown favorites.  Even though this seemed like a normal trip home, there was something special about this visit.  You see, I'm from a very small town called Mt. Olive, North Carolina.  We're known for pickles and the University of Mount Olive.  There is no mall, no movie theater and you best believe, everyone knows each other.
