Self Care in 2019! Health, Workouts, and Workout Gear!

Image
Every year, everyone decides to make resolutions.  Working out more, eating healthier, and investing in all this workout equipment and gear!  But how long do folks honestly truly go before they give up?  The average person's "New Year, New Me" only lasts about a month before giving up!  Yes, that means that a month into the resolution, there is losing focus, time lacks, and many other reasons.  So what can we do to not lose focus?  Well, let me begin with my experiences and story!  As you all know, I am a stay-at-home mother of four, ages 16, 9, 7, and 6!  Three boys and one girl!  I have always been an active mom, but within the last seven months, it has become very difficult for me to find the time nor energy to sneak in workouts! I used to go to Zumba classes every morning at 9:00 a.m. right after dropping three kids off to school and taking the youngest boy with me!  He would do amazing, he would sit for the whole entire hour while Mommy got her sweat on!  Then we…

Hello 2019! The Valentine's Day Edition!

Image
Hello 2019!  Welcome back my Fashion and Style Babes!  I wanted to kick off 2019 by putting together some Valentine's Day inspired looks, and of course, for less!  For my faithful followers and readers, you all know I love a good bargain!  For my new followers and readers, I shop clearance racks, resale shops, and thrift stores a lot!  Sometimes, we tend to buy clothing that we maybe wear twice, but for the most part, most buy and wear once!  And if that is the case, then clearance, resale, and thrift shopping is for you!  Buying clearance for items you won't wear over and over is what I recommend!

Now, we are almost into the second week of January, which means, we are about a little over a month away from Valentine's Day!  I am a firm believer that Valentine's Day is NOT just for couples!  Valentine's Day is also for friendships, siblings, nieces, and nephews!  It is a day to show love and appreciation to those family and friends in your life!  My family and I hav…

My Favorite Denim, Sweater, and Boots!

Image
Happy Tuesday Loves!  Today's blog post will be shorter than usual because I just wanted to direct link today's outfit and a few of my favorite jeans and sweaters!  Some are not currently available online and sold out(sorry) but I am linking similar styles!

I love Texas days in late Fall and into Winter where we get that good all you need is a sweater, jeans, and boots kind of day!  While I love layering, sometimes I feel like I look bulky and more top heavy than I normally am!  And while I love being a part of the Like To Know It app, some days I dislike that I cannot link my exact purchases!  So, I try and choose the items most similar and least expensive!  I am not a Like To Know It savvy pro yet, so bare with me!

Although my sweater I am wearing today is no longer available online, I am still linking it in any case you like it and want to be added to their list once it becomes available!  But I have linked my exact jeans! And my Aldo bag was a sale find at my local Ross, b…

Happy Monday Babes!  This late night blog post is finally here because, well life has been hectic the last week or so!  And, with Christmas around the corner, well, let's just say, the race is on!  This collaboration with my girlfriend's and fashion sisters is our Christmas Edition!  We give you five different looks you can get ideas on for that perfect holiday outfit!  What I loved about this collaboration is that even though we all love most of the same stores, but we all brought totally different looks for you to get ideas from!

Whether you are going to a fancy Christmas party, office party, or just hanging with your family, we have holiday outfit ideas for you!

I have glam and casual looks for you!  The first is an Eva Mendes emerald green dress from New York and Company!  I paired it with gold accessories for that glam feel!  The sequins mini clutch and gold pumps are resale shop finds at my local Plato's closet (mixing new with old)!  The second look is casual yet ch…

Hello my faithful readers and blog followers!  Hope all you babes are doing wonderful!  The countdown is on for Christmas now that Thanksgiving is over!  Lookout for Holiday looks coming to the blog this weekend!

But in the meantime, let me show you some of my favorite affordable coats that you will want for Fall into Winter!  I found my leopard print coat at my local Ross Department Store for $24.99!  And I've already started to style it different ways from dressing it up to casual looks!  The camel trench coat I've had for several Season's and I never get rid of if because it is light enough for cool temps but not extreme cold!  It's Who What Wear Collection from my local Target!

I love styling pretty coats with dresses, pencil skirts, and jeans!  You can always dress a coat up or down depending on where you are going!  So take a look at some links I have put for you all in case you are looking for that perfect Winter coat!  I have linked the most affordable and cute…

Mommy and Me Leopard Print: Finding Looks for Us Both!

Happy Saturday Babes!  Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving? Black Friday?  Christmas? New Years Eve?  Is it me or did the year pass us by way too fast?!  I mean it was just Summer yesterday!  Well, I am sure ready for the upcoming holidays!  I put together my entire family's looks for Thanksgiving last week and I am so excited to share it with you all on the actual holiday!  It was the most affordable of looks I've styled for us all (we are a family of six)!
Now, to today's blog post discussion!  Recently my daughter and I have been wearing matching outfits on the weekends!  It was hard at first, because my daughter is the total opposite of me!  She is the only girl, so she is rough, she is tough, and she doesn't like her hair up at all or wearing bows!  She only likes leggings and jeggings!  She hates denim!  I know she will grow out of it when she gets older, and that is why I don't mind letting her be comfortable now, letting her be a kid, even if she wants leggi…

The Fab Five Fashionsta's: Use Your Power To Empower

Image
Hello faithful followers and readers!  It's been a minute since I last blogged with life getting so busy and the Holidays literally around the corner!  But before I start bringing the Holiday outfits and ideas for this Season, let me start by saying that my Fashion sister's and I decided to collaborate with a powerful printed t-shirt from Target!

What does "empower" mean to you?  Empower to me means supporting you, loving your ideas, encouraging you, and giving you all the positivity you deserve and want in life!  More importantly, using that power to empower!  Especially in today's world where the Internet can become so toxic and mean!  Yes, mean!  I say that because people can get nasty behind the keyboard!  Women especially can be so critical, judging, nasty, and non-supportive of other women!  There are women who follow you on your social media platforms, never support you, never show you love, but are quick to point out what they see is "wrong with you&…
