Hello lovelies!

wpid-1431040780659.jpgI wanted to post this look on yesterday, and didn’t get a chance to finish the post.  I love the warm weather months because I can channel my bohemian style.  I like wearing flowing garments and earth tones.  I have always been into different prints.  I would have to say floral prints are starting be my favorite prints. I found this sheer floral print kimono cardigan (Burkes Outlet, $12.99) last weekend and I’ve worn it a few times already.  I chose a white t-shirt and dark turquoise skinny jeans to go with this look.  It’s very simple.  I wore simple white crystal studs and a gold flower ring (both of the jewelry pieces are from Old Navy for $1.99 each).  I also wore a chained statement necklace.

Fruit and Veggie Smoothie

Healthy Living

Hello everyone!

It’s been a while since I have done a post about smoothies.  I recently did a hug smoothie using a large blender.  I was able to make about 4-5 smoothies out of that batch.  I froze them until I got ready to drink them.

Here’s what I used:  kale, cantaloupe,  pine apples, and blue berries, and 2-3 tablespoons of flaxseeds.  I froze all of fruit before blending.  I used apple juice to blend everything.  This smoothie had a lighter taste because I didn’t add bananas to them.  I could really taste the cantaloupe and pineapples.   It was very tasty.  I had this smoothie right before bed and when I had to stay up late doing school work for added energy and extra nourishment.

Hi beautiful people!

Here’s two fun, summer looks I created with one dress.  I changed the accessories and shoes.  The easiest way to create different looks is to change up your accessories.

Hey Everyone!

Here’s look I wore on last week. It’s cute, casual, and chic.  I made this skirt from some really cool fabric with sneakers on it.

I styled my look with a simple princess t-shirt and red sneakers.  I also work a red beaded bracelet and my spiral earrings.  I wore my favorite red L.A. Color lipsticks called Cherry Red.  I also wore a high bun to finish my casual look.

I am super excited about sharing my first garment from Monif C Contemporary Plus Size Clothing.  For those of you who have followed my blog I have featured some of Monif C’s fashion on the blog.  The dress I am wearing is called Elizabeth.  I got Elizabeth back in November on sale with a promotional discount which totaled right at $40 (original price $128).  Her clothing is more on the pricier end for what I’m used to paying, but the quality of the dress is amazing.

Here’s the model picture:

I didn’t wear the belt and chose to use a scarf instead. My shoes are from Just Fab and I got my scarf ($10) from a street vendor in French Quarters in New Orleans.
