Same Girl, Same Jumper… Styled Differently!

Today I woke up all XTRA excited because my niece and my lil cousin will be officially graduating from High School this afternoon. It’s a blessing to be able to witness this.

There are so many graduations during this month and it’s a beautiful sight to see all the JOY in parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, teachers, and other relatives eyes as they see these babies walk across that stage and receive their diploma for which they work so hard for.  

So often we hear bad stories/news about our younger generation when we flip on the TV or turn to social media so when you are in the presence of hearing and seeing good news about our youth it’s a blessing! Embrace the good times, celebrate with them, love them, and continue to encourage them. Our YOUTH need encouragement more than we may know.  

This is a jumper that I purchased last year from Corie of It's My Taste and I wore it again and styled it differently by adding a Thrifted Blazer and a few accessories


NOTE TO YOU: If you know a teenager or young adult offer them some encouraging words and allow them to be able to look at you and see a light of inspiration as it’s going to take a whole nation to heal this GENERATION!!!!

Pin it Wednesday + Link up!

Happy HuMp Day lovelies… Y’all know the drill I’m back pinning & linking up with my girl Kita over at Say What U Wanna. 
The rules are pretty simple: choose a Quote, Outfit, Something for the upcoming Holiday & Something Odd then link up! J

Quote: No matter who we are behind every smile, every frown, and every FEAR... We all have a STORY!


Outfit: Simple yet Sweet!


Holiday: This Red, White, and Blueberry Breakfast can double for Memorial Day and/or 4th of July!  


Something Odd: This is not REALLY odd but oddly enough that I’m simply amazed at how much spam that is virtually floating around the net – I mean REALLY do folks just wake up and say: It’s a great morning to be a SPAMMER?


NOTE TO YOU: Come on & join the Pinterest link party... What are you waiting for?

Mother’s Day Recap & OOTD!

Happy Monday My Loves! I haven’t gotten around to doing my nails for “Manicure Monday” so I’ve decided to share a recap from my Mother’s Day. I know, I know… I’m a lil late but hey I figured it’s better late than never. Then again every day is Mother’s Day if you ask me! ~shrugs~

My gifts from hubster & my girls

The Mother’s in my family were brought together and the Men of the family cooked for us and served us! I didn’t get a pic of the food table but I have to hand it to the guys they did good! It also felt good to have the guys take charge in the kitchen and wait on us ladies hand & feet! J

MaDukes & I

Of course I’m still w/o all my goods (phone, computer, camera & ANYTHING electronic) speaking of which I dropped my iPad and the screen cracked but that’s whole notha post! lol

So, I was limited with the pics but here's a glimpse of a few of my peeps

Just Another Manicure Monday... Jawbreakers

Happy Monday Loves… Cheers to another week!
If you are a Mother I hope your Mother’s Day was filled with Happiness, Joy, and Peace!!!! I can say: my Mother’s Day was beyond blessed and I’m completely back from vacation and what FUN I had!

This week manicure was inspired by my blogger buddy Jeimy over at Jeimy's Fashion Love Affair as she posted a pic of her manicure on Instagram (see below) and I was highly inspired.

 I use 2 newbies from my KleanColor collection: White & Peaceful Heart

I’m thoroughly satisfied with the outcome… 

Of course I had to add a little sparkle - It wouldn't be me w/o the sparkle!
My daughter stated that my nails reminded her of Jawbreakers… What do you think?

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

~Until Next Time

Peace, Love, & Fashion Polish

The 4-1-1... #LAShoesday

Ok, so here’s the 4-1-1 (info, update, the bizness)
I leave for Bahamas in the morning & guess what???!!! I STILL haven’t packed… I have got to be the BIGGEST procrastinator known to man-kind! But don’t get it twisted ~ I do get ish done. It’s just something about doing things under pressure. It gives me an adrenaline rush! I know that might sound KRAZY but I get a major RUSH by RUSHING! ~shrugs

Imma work on my time management ~ PINKY PROMISE!

That was one of my vision board objectives. Speaking of vision board so many things are starting to come to pass that I’m VERY excited about life and what God is doing. I will keep y’all posted on all the exciting news in due time.

Lastly, if you follow me on Facebook/Instagram then you know that I do what I call #ShoesdayTuesday I initially started this as a challenge for myself to make sure that I wear all my shoes in my closet. But seems like I wasn’t the only one in the virtual world with the same idea so I wanted to know if any of my readers would like to join me?

~ Above pic is from last Tuesday & Bottom pic is from yesterday ~

 It’s pretty simple… Every Tuesday just take a picture of the shoes you are wearing and upload via Instagram then tag me on your Instagram page with the hashtag #LAShoesday - I had to make my own hashtag as there are so many shoes that are loaded using the other hash tag. Also, I wanted to have something that would be easy for anyone that wanted to participate. If you plan on taking part in #LAShoesday please don’t forget to tag me in your KICKS!!!! I will be doing Give-a-ways for some lucky participates so let me know if you are in & I will be looking forward to seeing your shoes on Tuesdays!!!!  

This was look from yesterday ~ April Showers bring May Flowers!!!!
Happy May y’all… praying for warmer weather

NOTE TO YOU: Thank y’all for sticking with me while I’ve been out of the blogging loop; I hope to get my computer fixed & get my blogging MOJO back REAL SOON! J
~Until Next Time

Peace, Love, Fashion & Vacation
