A Mix of Thrift

Hello Beauties!

While visiting Charlotte last month, I was able to make a quick stop at a local Goodwill.  Although I didn't luck up like the last time I was in area, I grabbed a great pink blazer that was in excellent condition.  When I lucked up on a pair of snakeskin platforms over the weekend, I knew that the blazer would be perfect with the shoes.

Here's a look at my outfit of the day:

Protective Style: Senegalese Twists

Hello Beauties!

Today is the first day of summer!  When summer approaches, I know many of us typically reach for a protective style.  As much as I love my natural hair, I needed a break from styling my hair so I chose my favorite protective style... Braids!  I have always admired senegalese twists so I opted to try them.

If you follow me on Instagram (missfabellis), you may have noticed the change in my hairstyle already.  Here are a few photos of the style so far:

OOTD: Orange & Zebra

Hello Beauties!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  My weekend was very busy, but one of the highlights of my weekend was celebrating my friend DiOnna's birthday.  She and I had a great time and it gave me a great excuse to dress up.

If you follow on Facebook, you may have seen some of the prints I picked up from H&M recently.  The dress I wore below is one of the awesome prints I discovered.

Hello Beauties!

Have you ever paid attention to what's in your makeup bag?  We all have those essential items we would never leave the house without.  For me, one of my must-have items is hand cream.  I love the feel of soft hands so having hand cream with me helps me keep that feeling all day.  Because of this, I was excited when Cleopatra's Choice contacted me about trying their Adovia Dead Sea Hand Cream.
