Just Another MANICure Monday!

We are here AGAIN another Monday = Another Manicure!

Before I show my MANI I have to share the news on my $.25 cent nail polish remover pads yes you read that right they were just $.25 cents from Walgreens.
I just knew they wouldn’t work since they were so cheap but guess again they are the + they smell good and leave your cuticle and hands feeling silky smooth!

If you have a Walgreens in your area I suggest you check and see if they have any. I mean REALLY what do have to lose… Now I’m wishing I had got more!

I can’t even front I am STILL rocking the same MANI from days ago… but hey it STILL look good though. I done told y’all about Klean Color nail polish but y’all still sleeping on it! Lol

This color is called: Black Hole

  I promise next week I’m going to use another nail polish brand because Klean Color is going to have to start giving me a check the way I keep promoting them! LOL!!!!

MANICure Monday is a weekly nail polish/mani link-up that is rotated between Mimi of Lipgloss and Binky and yours truly: LA Lynn's  so head on over to Mimi blog to link up & show us your MANI!


NOTE TO YOU: How often do you all wear the same brand polish?

Thrifted Thursday… OOTD!

Can y’all believe that I haven’t been thrifting at all this year… yup, NOT AT ALL!!!! Now that I think about it I actually haven’t been shopping NONE this year. Wow… that’s effin’ awesome. Somebody check my temperature quick! Lol
The most I have purchased this year is nail polish. Hmmm… I know someone is reading this post and saying: Well the year just started… And, you are absolutely RIGHT! But for a person that use to thrift weekly and to be able to go 24 days w/o thrifting is MAJOR!!!!! Especially, since it was not a New Year Resolution nor was it planned. Nevertheless, since I haven’t been shopping I decided to shop my closet today & wear something that I thrifted a few months ago.

Southern Girls love PEARLS! J

Ooooo… Did I mention it is a messy bun type of day!

Too often folks get discourage from friends, family, and/or even social media

Don’t allow folks to rain on your parade

It’s NOT always good to keep your feelings balled up in a bottle. Sometimes we cause more damage for the things we don’t say then the things we do say.

Be mindful to watch your BACK but trust & believe that GOD has your BACK!

Continue to be the BEST you that you can be & let your light shine bright!!!!

Your path was destined & no one can walk in your shoes but you!

My total outfit cost me a whopping $2.68 from America's Thrift Store 
Boots: Gifted
Accessories: LA Lynn's excluding the Michael Kors watch

*** Special thanks to my daughter for being such a sweetheart & snap Mommy pictures on the way to school this morning - LOVE her dearly! *** 


NOTE TO YOU: What have you thrifted lately? Or have you been shopping? What’s new with you?  

~Until Next Time

Polyvore... Wordless Wednesday

Happy HuMp Day…

I created a Polyvore account a while back and I finally played around with it & created a few Valentine Inspirational outfits.
Viva La Love


Red Riboon

Hope you guys like the outfits I created and not only can these outfits be for Valentine’s they can also be for any other occasion.

NOTE TO YOU: I didn't realize how much fun Polyvore was... Creating these outfits was so much fun I felt like I was a little girl playing dress up with my Barbie Dolls. Do any of you have Polyvore?

Happy Monday Loves…

Ooooo… I’m starting a lil late today but let me just tell ya if you follow me on Instagram then you already know why I’m late. Anywho, I am sooo excited to embark in another day of history as today marks the inauguration of President Obama & MLK Day! It doesn’t get any better than that! So of course I had to do a MANI to show my love and support.

Kingdom Chic… OOTD!

As mention I am back with a follow-up post. I won’t and can’t complain but as my heart would have it I was lead to use this platform to share: If you are going through just remember the battle is not yours it’s the LORD!  

This thing called: LIFE can either make you or destroy you but I was BUILT FOR THIS. I am NOT easily broken and I’m a BORN SURVIVOR!!!!

I understand it takes all types of people to make up the world but just because they are in the world don’t mean that they have to be a part of your world!

There are folks in the world that are quick to judge without even knowing the reason behind a person action, some folks will try and hold your past against you, then there are folks who will try and destroy your character, folks who will hide behind others instead of facing the truth, and then you have certain folks who will forget what you did for them and build their whole foundation on having a motive and won’t support you or anyone else to save their life!

Folks gone talk no matter if you are doing good or bad so whatever you do just be the BEST you that you can be!!!! It don’t matter what MAN/WOMAN says: What matters is what GOD says!!!!  There are folks who have said and done things and even threw a few rocks and stones yet I smile because I know that they didn’t give me this JOY and they can’t take it away. When you get knocked down you don't have to stay down... GET BACK UP!!!!!   

One thing about it… If God has destined you for a position there is NO DEMON IN HELL that can STOP it from happening!!!! Many people are seriously struggling with the ENEMY rather it is on their JOB, MARRIAGE, RELATIONSHIP, FRIENDSHIPS, FINANCES, FAMILY and/or CHILDREN but I tell you to continue to STAND and continue to fight because it’s NOT over until GOD says it’s over.

Even on your worst day someone has it worse than you do so SALUTE & KEEP SMILING!!!!

All HELL broke loose and was left in 2012… It’s a New Year, New Week, New Day and in 2013 there is no room for the ENEMY or association with the ENEMY!!!!

DIRT may be thrown your way but as long as GOD is with you no one can be against you.  No one can walk your walk but you… your steps are already ordered!

What I Wore:

Black Tee & Camo Pants ~ Bonnie's Boutique
Black Vest ~ Gifted
Spike Boots ~ Garb Shoetique
Accessories ~ LA Lynn's

NOTE TO YOU: I wasn’t sure what direction I wanted my blog to go in but if you personally know me or have been following my blog for a while then you already know I’m “Kingdom Chic”. I have a love for fashion but “in love” with faith so I’m getting my blogging mojo back slowly but surely… I will continue to post Manicure Monday, Wordless Wednesday, Thrifted Finds, My Social Side, and a few OOTD but most importantly I want my readers to leave my blog feeling inspired and empowered so with that being said: My posts will be heart driven; whatever is on my heart, in my spirit, and what moves me to write shall be written in 2013…


~Until Next Time

Peace, Love, Faith, & Fashion

Just Another MANICure Monday!

Since today is: Just Another MANICure Monday & it’s time for me to get a fill-in… I decided that I would share my latest polish haul with some color swatches. As many of you know I’m a POLISH ADDICT and I just recently indulged in yet another polish haul. Hmmm… DO I NEED HELP???!!!! Nope, I think NOT! HA!

Left to Right: Kiss Goodbye, Pink sleepless, Mocha, Diamon Gold, and Cooper

Left to Right: Clear, Black, Pink Star, Mango, Disco Ball, Sheer Lilac

As previously mention Klean Color is my #1 Polish right now mainly because of the price but they seriously have GREAT colors and the POLISH apply smooth with no chips, cracks, and/or peeling and the polish actually dry fast and last so I have absolutely no compliments.

Left Hand are the polishes in Pic#1

Right Hand are polishes in Pic# 2
When it's time for a fill-in I do color swatches to help better find the color I want... Please note only 1 coat was applied
Ok, so I told y’all I REALLY don’t have many polishes as folks may think I have. I’m at an E-Z 50 - 60 bottles of nail polish. I’m not sure what my ultimate goal is but Curls and Mo tagged me in the Nail Polish Video Haul and I’m not quite ready for that yet. I wanna step my polish game up just a tidbit more before I do a full polish inventory video. J

MANICure Monday is a weekly nail polish/mani link-up that is rotated between Lipgloss and Binky and yours truly: LA Lynn's ~ so go ahead show us your MANI!

NOTE TO YOU: What are some of your favorite polishes and color swatches?
