Pin It Wednesday

It must really be a Happy HuMp Day for me as this is my 2nd post today. I’m back to link up with Kita over at Say what u wanna for Pinterest Wednesday.

If you saw my post earlier: HERE then you saw that I made GREEN pancakes using Pinspiration. Told y’all I was going to start recreating instead of being a Pinterest hoarder.

Anywho, the rules are simple: choose a Quote, Outfit, Something for the upcoming Holiday & Something Odd then link up! J

Quote: Yup, I sure did… No need in stressing or complaining about things you can’t change.


Outfit: Keep Calm SPRING has SPRUNG!!!!  


 Holiday: My Girls love PEEPS! Ok, ok… I love PEEPS too!


 Something Odd: Picture staying in a car literally… The pic stated that this is an actual house in Australia


You can link up too just head over to Kita blog at Say what u wanna & join the FUN!

Peace, Love, & Fashion Pinterest



Wordless Wednesday... Shamrock Brunch

No, I’m not Irish but in the name of FUN my daughter & I had a SHAMROCK Brunch this pass Sunday (St. Patrick’s Day)

Some of you may have already had the pleasure of seeing the above pic on my Instagram and/or Facebook page so I decided to record it on the blog and share it here as well!

I had to keep adding more & more food coloring to get it to this color GREEN; which is still not the actual GREEN I was going for.

 Flash (Above Pic) & No Flash (Bottom Pic)

 It’s not complete w/o the GREEN Kool-Aid

My Baby Girl & I - I would do ANYTHING to see that smile! :^)

It only took 15mins to make this meal; We also had scrambled eggs and bacon to complete our brunch!  

NOTE TO YOU: You too can GO GREEN & make these delicious pancakes too… To get the FULL recipe click ---> HERE

Just Another Manicure Monday

Another Week; Another Mani… I was contacted to do a review on 2 Sisters Cosmetics Nail Polishes and with JOY I excitedly agreed because ANYTIME somebody say: “Nail Polish” I’m on board!

 I received three (3) polishes securely packaged but little did I know I was receiving magic in a bottle!  

I was highly impressed with the bottles and the colors as I received as pictured (l to R): Try Me, Fantasy and Ready or Knot 

 (Above) No Flash & (Bottom) Flash

I am completely satisfied with the way that the color came out and the fact that the polish dries really FAST allowed me the opportunity to get some chores around the house done. Lastly the added bonuses of the polishes being Toxin Free, Eco-Friendly, and Made in the USA  

 (Above) Flash & (Bottom) No Flash

 I took pleasure in knowing that I was able to polish my nails without the added FUMES and SMELLS

As stated on their website to sum it all up 2 Sisters Nail Polishes are Naturally Flawless as I must AGREE!

I absolutely adore the polishes and color selection; that I have already made plans to purchase the entire collection.

Please visit their website at:

You can host a nail polish party or join the team

2 Sisters Cosmetics are currently running a special buy any 2 Nail Polishes and get “Try Me” or “Dew You” for only .17cent$ simply use online code: StPattysDay
offer valid until 3/31

Don’t forget to link up and show off your Mani. This week we are starting a new linky… You do not have to have a blog to link up. So, if you are on Instagram, Facebook, and/or Twitter and want to show off your Mani go right ahead!

MANICure Monday is a weekly nail polish/mani link-up that will be rotated between Lipgloss and Binky and yours truly: LA Lynn's 

NOTE TO YOU: After doing a little research I found that as it turns out, our nails are quite porous and our bodies absorb what is put on them. Additionally, there is blood flow right under the nail beds which means a direct pathway for chemicals to travel into our bloodstream. The chemicals found in the majority of nail polish are quite toxic, containing what’s referred to as the “toxic trio” – TolueneDibutyl Phthalate (DBP), and Formaldehyde. This trio of chemicals is known to be extremely dangerous to the human body.

Disclaimer: I was not paid for this review however I did receive complimentary nail polishes for the purpose of providing a review. All above statements in reference to this review are strictly my own opinion.

Go to Dress… OOTD!

Ok, so shoot me I didn’t get a chance to link up for Manicure Monday! I’ve been so busy planning & preparing for so much that is happening around these parts that the days are just FLYING by! But I do plan on linking up before the week is out so if you haven’t link up yet either don’t forget the linky party this week is being held over on Mimi Blog: Lipgloss & Binky.

Real quick though… I wanted to stop to share my “Go to Dress”. (Nothing Special) But every female has that dress that’s been in the closet for years. It don’t have to be the cutest or the flyest dress in your closet but for some strange reason you just REFUSE to get rid of it. It could be the comfort, price, or you just may be simply attached to it for whatever reason so you keep it around.

Whelp, that’s exactly my thoughts on this dress. It definitely came in handy on yesterday as I woke up late & it was pouring down raining!!!! No ironing, no preparation, no nothing…
Viola >>> GO TO DRESS it is!!!!  

It was raining so badddd outside that I had to take pics inside my friend house. But peep this I creeped a few pics while in a public restroom. Don’t Judge Me! HA! *I promised I washed my hands*

What I Wore:

Dress: Macy's (Old)
Tights: Gifted via MaDukes
Boots: Gifted via hubby
Accessories: LA Lynn's

All I remember about this dress is I purchased it at Macy’s on the clearance rack a few years ago and it probably has shrunk a bit over the years… but it still has it comfort & I NEVER have to iron it so I keep it around for days like yesterday! J

P.S. Please be patience with me as I’m still w/o a computer so camera phone pics is what you will get until I can get a hold of my PC guy. ~wink

Lastly, this is Week 2 of the PGRD Challenge & Dress # 4 for me.

NOTE TO YOU: Do you own a “Go to Dress” that you just can’t seem to part with?

Thankful Thrifted Thursday… OOTD!

This is going to be a REALLY quick post as I am headed out with my girls…

1st off let me just say: You can meet some of the most amazing folks on social media networks as I virtually met Shoemisses via Instagram. She started following me and I took a liking to her pictures and found her pics to be interesting so I started following her back as she has a niche for thrifting as I do. She thrifted this skirt I’m wearing (for yourself) but once she got home she realized she already had the exact same skirt at home. We virtually communicated about the skirt then she sent me an email to follow-up and she was kind enough to ship the skirt to me and to my SURPRISE she put another skirt in the package! And, peep this she didn’t even charge anything for the skirt(s). I just paid a little of nothing for shipping so you can pretty much say the skirt was FREE! J

Dress Challenge Entry:
This is Dress #3 in the PGRD Challenge

 What I'm Wearing:

Blazer ~ Gifted
Ruffle Blouse ~ Old
Skirt ~ Thrifted (Gifted)
Tights ~ Rue 21
Shoes ~ Just Fab
Accessories ~ LA Lynn's
Laptop Case ~ Macy's

BTW, if you still haven’t entered my SHOE Giveaway – Today is the last day to eneter and the WINNER will be announced! ENTER HERE 

NOTE TO YOU: I'm sooo thankful for genuinely nice folks!
When was the last time you meet someone virtually and y’all totally connected… (Blogging) doesn’t count! Lol

~Until Next Time ~

Peace, Love, & Fashion Thrifting
