• Yesterday I had the honor of speaking at @trust_your_strength first mama mixer.  The founder @alena0916 even presented a few mother’s including myself a Supermom award.  Hearing all the stories from these ladies I don’t feel worthy because I don’t know if I would have the strength to go through what they’ve been through.  Alena herself deserves all the awards.  She put on this amazing event and is passionate about supporting nicu moms of color. She deserves all the awards. Thanks for having me! PS, I’m not short, these ladies are extra tall 😆.
  • Be your own Valentine and make sure you show yourself some love! Whether you’re celebrating with a partner or not, loving yourself is the most important. ❤️
  • Put together a quick & easy Valentine board inspired by @rosalynndaniels.  She made a dessert board and since I’m on a charcuterie board kick, this is perfect. 
What’s included: 
Flowers from Mr. Grapes, choc strawberries (bought the dip cup of chocolate), blueberry muffins (jiffy mix), bowl of choc covered pretzels, and Hershey kisses.  The box of chocolates are from the dollar tree. I put some little lip balms I bought for them on the board. #charchuterie

  • My 3 dates for Valentine’s Day! I’m trying to do better at telling my family and friends that I love them more and followed with kisses and hugs.  Those words weren’t used a lot when I was growing up so it’s something I have to be mindful of.  Praise God for breaking generational patterns.

Fall Florals

October 29, 2014
If you were waiting for it or not, fall is in full swing.  Recently, I’ve been participating in a heated fashion debate at work.  Because Atlanta is still pretty warm, high 60’s, the question is do you dress for the weather or the season?  Being the fashion girl that I am and I love fall fashion, I always say dress season appropriate.  I’m not saying if it hits 70 degrees you have to wear a sweater or wool coat but it’s time to put up those summer dresses, booty shorts and linen pants away.  It pains me to see someone wearing Easter colors in the fall if it isn’t a sweater or a coat.  There are several ways you can dress for the weather and still be season appropriate.  I found the perfect fall floral peasant top for the season.

This is the perfect warm fall look.  Beige and tan jackets are all the rage this fall.  I see them everywhere. Tan trenches and cargo jackets are light weight and perfect for warm climates this time of year.  Paired with black, the look is so chic.

Do you dress for the season or weather?

    I love this look. It looks comfortable yet fashionable. I have to disagree though. As a Georgia native, I tend to dress according to the weather. Plus I am a lover of Spring & Summer.
