Lifestyle | Five Lessons My 20s Taught Me


I can hardly believe today is my 30th birthday.  It seems like just yesterday I was graduating from college.  Time has gone by so quickly, but as I have been thinking back over my life these past few weeks, I realize that I've grown so much throughout the years.  A lot of growth and maturity has taken place during my 20's.  There were some tough moments and as well as victories.  I feel like today is a perfect day to tell more of my own truth and testimony.  It's important for me to share my story with others so that you know that you are never alone in things you may face.

Personal Style | #FabsThrifty30: The Thrifted Clutch Bag


Last week, I shared that there are certain sections in the thrift store you should never skip.  These sections may contain gems that may be missed unless you take a moment to look through them.  The handbag section is definitely one section to not sleep on.  The thrift store is not only a great place to find designer brands, but you would be surprised at the great quality, vintage bags they may have.  One of my favorite type of bags to purchase from the thrift store are clutch bags.  Vintage clutch bags are so...clutch.  Many of the bags are so versatile and honestly unique that you would probably never see someone rocking the same one you have.

Beauty | Three Black 2016 Olympians Whose Makeup Absolutely Slayed


If you've been like me over the past few weeks, you have been in awe of the absolute black girl magic taking place at the 2016 Olympics.  It's been so inspiring to watch athletes like Simone Biles, Simone Manuel, Michelle Carter and so many others take home the gold.  As I have been watching the Olympics, one thing that I couldn't help but notice is the absolute makeup slayage that many of the athletes are bringing to the games.  When I think of the Olympics, I think of heat and sweat, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with looking good while competing.  I wanted to share a few black athletes whose makeup has been on point during the Olympics.

Lifestyle | Three Sections You Should Never Skip in the Thrift Store


Thank you so much for the amazing feedback on my latest thrift haul!  I'm really enjoying being back into thrifting and sharing how easy it is to incorporate thrifted pieces into your wardrobe.  After my recent post on why you should thrift with your squad, I realized that there is something else you should know about thrifting.  It is so easy to miss true gems in thrift stores.  How?  There are certain sections that we sometimes never visit due to either lack of time or interest.  Today I'm sharing the sections of the thrift store you should never skip.

Personal Style | #FabsThrifty30: Oversized Denim


I love good denim.  Denim looks good with almost anything and it's one of the most versatile pieces to have in your wardrobe.  Recently, I have been seeing women rocking oversized denim shirts with dresses and shorts.  I decided that I wanted to recreate the look, but of course, the thrifted way.  I recently visited a brand new Triad Goodwill and I knew just where to go for an oversized denim shirt.  I visited the men's section of the store and found a denim shirt in excellent condition for under $5.
