Happy Friday Eve; the last day of the month!!!!

Have you ever woke up and felt empowered like you could conquer the WORLD, FACE your worst enemy and still SMILE? Well, today that’s exactly how I’m feeling. I’m in such a happy place in my life right now.

I even overslept this morning but still manage to put my braids up in a HIGH BUN & make my morning drive smiling…

Main thing is I ARRIVED ALIVE!

Pin It Wednesday

Happy HuMp Day… Today I am joining Kita over at Say what u wanna for Pinterest Wednesday. I grabbed the pic’s from Pinterest but didn’t grab the source! *Shrugs*

Anywho, I notice Kita mention in her post that she cleaned up her boards… which that is something that I need to REALLY do as I was a TRUE PINNER HOARDER when I 1st joined Pinterest. So, I plan to take time and clean up my pinning boards in the next few weeks.

Quote ~ I feel that the word HATE is one of the most overrated words used to day but if we eliminate the word HATE we would have HAPPINESS!

Outfit ~ HA, HA! This outfit makes me laugh every time I see it… Skirts or Shorts, & Ugg Boots! BTW, I have actually worn shorts with Ugg Boots before and I can’t even explain to you WHY! lol

Something Odd ~ My daughter is NOT a cake person. I order her a BIG cookie from the Cookie Company every year for her Birthday. And, being that her Birthday is 2 weeks away I figured I could try to order her some of these cookies using her Instagram pictures. Kool Right???!!!!

St. Patty’s Day ~ I’m not a drinker so a Kid friendly Mocktail is a great way for me & the kiddies to celebrate this GREEN holiday!

I’m such a SUCKA for pictures and pretty things so this was right on point that Kita started Pin it Wednesday so if you are a PINNER join in on the FUN!

NOTE TO YOU: Let’s have fun discovering finds and sharing them by linking up… The Rules are simple: Choose a Quote, Outfit, Something for the upcoming Holiday & Something Odd then link up! J

Style Me Friday… OOTD!


Ok, now that I have that out the way let me just say I was so encouraged to link up with Eboni over at Fashionista Next Door then my encouragement TOTALLY turned into DOUBT! Being that it's raining in the ATL & knowing that my picture quality SUCKS because I’m using my cell phone to take pics being that my PC is on its death bed I can’t use my REAL CAMERA to transfer my pics as I on a borrowed PC! But then I read Eboni actual link post à HERE and was instantly encouraged again! So, I won’t bore you guys with my mishaps… I’ll just show you all how I tried to pull this week ‘Style Me Friday” look together.  

 This week’s look featured a Bright Coat & since I don’t own a BRIGHT Coat I opted for this mello-yellow blazer I purchased from Sears recently.

Blazer – Sears
Pants – Kohl’s  
Purse: Nine West
Accessories: LA Lynn’s

Head on over to Fashionista Next Door to link up or to check out the other “Style Me Friday” recreations

NOTE TO YOU: I did the BEST I could with what I had to work with… What you guys think?
Also, I must thank my daughter (again) for braving the rain with me and being mommy photographer! J

~ Until Next Time ~

Peace, Love, & Fashion

Thrifted Thursday... OOTD!

Ok, so this is going to be a really quick outfit post! I thrifted this Blazer a while back & my husband HATE IT! Lol!

The conversation with my husband this morning kind of went like this:

Hubby: Where you get that jacket from
Me: The Thrift Store
Hubby: No wonder
Me: What is that supposed to mean?
Hubby: I mean you couldn’t find nothing better?
Me: Silence… Roll Eyes – LOL!!!!

Once I put the ensemble together I said do you like it now & he replied: The shoes & pants look good but the jacket got to go; so yes if you changed the jacket I would like it. Soooo… to satisfy his eyes & save my marriage (J/K) Lol!!!! This is the 1st and the last time you all will see this blazer! J

Blazer – Thrifted
Pants – Walmart; yup you READ right Walmat!
Shoes: Dollhouse via online
Accessories: LA Lynn’s

~ It’s NOT too many times that he dislike what I’m wearing so I will give him a pass ~
I thought the Blazer was different yet cute but one thing for sure it is made out of some THICK material that I feel like I have on layers of clothes and having HOT FLASHES! lol

NOTE TO YOU: Has your spouse or significant other ever told you they didn’t like something you was wearing? How did you react?  

~Until Next Time

Just Another Manicure Monday

Whew… I’m FINALLY able to post!!!! I have tried posting for the last 2 hours and BLOGGER has been tripping! *Literally*
OAN: I REALLY gotta get back in the swing of things around these parts. I have been vacationing my lil heart out. We went to Cancun, Mexico last week and had an absolute ball. The weather over there was gorgeous.

So, I actually didn’t get the opportunity to do my nails so I will share my latest Mani that I had prior to leaving for my trip. Donna of Brown Girl Next Door hosted a Pamper & Polish Tweet-up and I had the pleasure of getting my polish change. My BIGGEST challenge when doing my nails or getting them done is selecting the color polish.

I opted for a “springy” color being that I knew I was headed to Mexico to enjoy the beach life & the fact that it was 80 degrees over there I wanted something bright to match.

Check out the smile on my FACE… It’s always an honor to be able to sit back and allow someone else to do your manicure. J

Excited about the how the color turned out. Not to mention I got a few compliments too. J

Viola! Here’s a closer look at the color: Gargantuan Green Grape by: OPI

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  today I am hosting the link so go ahead link up at the bottom of the post & show us your MANI!


NOTE TO YOU: What’s the determining factor when choosing your nail polish color(s)?

Wordless Wednesday... OOTD!

This post is supposed to be wordless… so I will keep it sweet & simple!

I wore this to Church Sunday before last and the sermon was about how God accepts us the way that we are; too bad MAN is not like GOD!!!!  

Everybody sees you when you are winning! But ONLY God saw you when you was wandering! ~Apostle Harrison

After church I headed to Brunch with fam & friends
I had to capture the pic of my Bestie and my childhood bestie whom I was best friends with when I was in Kindergarten… I haven’t seen her in years but I’ll have to share that story another time! J

Sister/Friend ~ Mari of Beyond Greatness & My K-5 Bestie Marla

NOTE TO YOU: Friendship needs no words…

Ain't NOTHING like your MAN having your back!
Alright, alright, alright… Moving on to today’s MANI – since I was sooo hyped about BEY performance I dedicated my MANI  to: “Baby Blue Ivy”

As promised I used another nail polish brand other than Klean Color. Not that I needed too but I went out & purchased my 1st Sinful Colors from Walgreens for $1.99

The color is: Cinderella
On my ring finger I used Color Club nail polish yellow, green, & pink then taking a toothpick and mixing the colors all together to create a marble effect.
