A Message & The Mall

I know y’all can be doing other SH*T right now but I don't want you all to just l@@k at the pictures please take the time to read the post.

I normally participate in Wordless Wednesday but I have a:

PSA (Personal Service Announcement):

1st off I would like to say: “thank you” for continuing to visit my blog and being such great blog buddies… Also, if you are new here and I haven’t made it around to your blog spot I will do so very soon!


*Clears Throat* I wanted to remind folks that I'm NOT a Photographer. Truth be told most of my pictures are taken with my Android phone OR my daughters iPhone. Clearly, to keep from looking like a tourist or paparazzi I only pull out the Nikon when planned...

Now that I have cleared that up... I really wanted to touch on the FACT that I’m NOT a Fashion Expert nor am I your typical Fashion Blogger. I am a self-proclaimed "Lifestyle Blogger"… And, just in case you ignored my blog header I wanted to reiterate that I blog about LIFE (MY LIFE) REAL EVENTS... You will find almost ANY & EVERYTHING from Faith, Fashion, Family, Friends, Food, & Fun on my blog. In between this thing called LIFE: I just happen to LOVE fashion and I think it’s fun to share OOTD, Fashion Finds, and Pretty Pic’s. Fashion just happens to play a major part in my LIFE!

I know a lot of you probably got the GAS FACE!!!! (confused look) but I felt the need to share the above statement because I have seen a few of my blog buddies post pictures on certain site(s) and folks judge them without even knowing them, their blogs, nor do they try and take the opportunity to get to know the person. Either way you can NEVER really know a person by looking at 5 or 6 pictures of them. I highly understand that people will draw conclusions and have their own opinions and I respect that. But some folks can just be so negative, mean, and evil for no reason at all!!!! Here it is today, we are dealing with enough hatred as it is and to have folks in the (quote un quote) fashion/style community to speak negative about someone is beneath me. Why can’t folks just be happy for others when the SPOTLIGHT is SHINING???!!! Everything ain’t for Everybody and Everybody is NOT going to have the same taste when it comes to FASHION

Just because its name brand don’t mean it looks good! A person fashion sense is based on their individual style. My STYLE may not be your STYLE and vice versa but that’s why it’s called… “MY STYLE” That’s one reason why I would much rather read a blog than a magazine. I get to see REAL LIFE folks doing REAL LIFE SH*T!

~Thank you for your ATTENTION~

Now, to my actual post: Most of you know that lightning struck our home a couple of weeks ago and we were without POWER in our downstairs area. Well, we are back up and operating. *YAYYYY*

Before getting things back in order you know that meant another trip to the Mall My trips to the Mall are always FUN because I never know what I'm going to see.

From my Camera Phone to my blog for y'all to see... N'JOY!

 I know you all are proabably wondering whyyyy I'm looking at all the kiddie stuff. Welp, I sure as heck ain't PREGGO! *that was not a slap in the face to any Mother bearing child(ren)* but those days are over for me. My daugthers are 19 & 14 - I'm GOOD! But I have a friend who just had a baby and I went to Spencer's to get a Gag gift and stumbled upon several! Spencer's never seems to disappoint if you are looking for cool gadgets or gag gifts that's the place to go!

Don't know what's going on with my shirt in this ic & obviously Hubs didn't care how he took the pic! :-/ 

Truck loaded & on our way back home... Wanted a close-up of the earrings & bracelets
What I Wore:

Shirt & Jeans: Macy’s, Tan Ankle Sandals: Old
Coach Handbag: Gift from Hubs
Earrings: IStyle LLC ~ Won a Blog Giveaway
Bracelets: Gifted

Note To You: If God made us all the same some folks will STILL have something to complain about… Just because a person don’t look like you or dress like you don’t mean they are NOT worthy!!!!

Peace, Love, & Fashion



  1. Love the little shirts so cute makes me want to have another baby...almost. Your phone takes great pictures my pics always look blurry and I don't do the pic thing very often. As always you look lovely

  2. Loved those onsies they are hilarious! Oh man they made me smile =) Your jewellry is gorgeous <3 it!

    You go girl! I'm so glad you stood up for yourself and other bloggers we need to respect each other not look down on each other.

  3. sentiments EXACTLY! I said something similar a lil while ago. For the life of me, I can't understand such negativity. I have clearly accepted the fact that MY style isn't for everyone and vice versa but I don't have to be such a butthole when I come across something that isn't my taste.

    Those onesies are

    Now for that top you are wearing....LOVES IT! You are looking quite fly my dear!


  4. I loved those mini me glitter UGG booties!
    Your words rung so true at the beginning of this post!

  5. Well, didn't you say a mouth full!!! Who pissed you off girl? LOL!!! But I totally fell what you are saying. People LOVE to criticize, but they won't ever show their faces. Expressions comes from who you are as an individual and if folks can't get with that, that is their damn problem.

    Glad you guys are back up and running with the power and I LOVE your bracelets!!!!

  6. OMG!!! Those baby clothes are too much!!! However, those glitter baby boots are too hot honey!!!

  7. Lynn, this is such a good post. Really agree with everything you said and I know exactly which site you are referring to. I cringe when I think about it. There is no need for people to be that negative, but they are. On a lighter note, These onesies are so cute! And of course I love your accessories!

  8. oooh i love that shirt you have on!

  9. OMG, you have daughters who are 19 and 14! You look so gorgeous and so young yourself!! Great job keeping up the beauty and fitness!! Love chic mamas!! BTW, first time on your blog and I am loving it! I am your newest follower, I'd appreciate if you could connect with me and follow back! Hope you are having a wonderful day!

  10. I always feel if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. I never understood the point of posting negative comments. I love your point of view on the subject. I also think the baby clothes are hilarious!


  11. I totally respect you for putting that out there. People hide behind computer screens and say the meanest things. I am a firm believer in karma so I always try to put positivity out in the universe. Plus my mother always said "if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all". The baby clothes....(Cant.Stop.Laughing) lol

    Tarah and the CIty

  12. I totally agree! you don't know a person through what they post on a blog. in fact I know some girls that always post them in expensive stuff but those "expensive stuff" are borrowed then returned at stores lol it's dumb when people judge other's personal life base on their blog

  13. I agree 100% w/ this post and I'm glad you wrote it. It's really not fair to have to be judged for the things you do online for fun. Smh at people who can't simply be happy for others.

  14. Girl THIS!!! It takes a fearless person to expose themselves to the public. I believe in spreading positivity and, unfortunately, blogs have become a way for cowards and ignorant people to have a platform to declare their stupidity. All I can say to all of us is to continue to just be yourself and ignore Tue BS because that's all it is.....BS

    Btw, LOVE ur top and ur fly diva!!!

  15. Aint that the truth! I never could understand why people enjoy HATING so much. I know everyone isn't going to like what I wear all the time and vice versa,but you're not going to see me bad-mouth them because of it. Great post. You look fab in this outfit and I LOVE the glittery ugg booties! Too cute!

  16. GURL YOU BETTER PREACH!! I say if a blog isn't your cup of tea don't bother even going to it. You making your comments it isn't going to change the person that runs/owns the blog. They created their blog to share THEMSELVES and what THEY like with others, not to please or conform to what you like!! Shoot tell those negative people to miss you with that mess!!

    Now at those onesies........those are something!! O_o LOL My son would love that TV!!! I like your jewelry!!

    Carsedra of:

  17. Efie I so feel you on this post! I still get emails from random people asking what's the main purpose of me blogging....You are so's not all about wearing name brand! I tell people to please read my blog name again...

    On another note, I love those cute lil onesies! Too funny! and I really do love your top.

  18. First let me just say.... YOU ARE MY KINDA CHICK.. Love this post and thanks for saying what I myself and many other have thought but hadn't taken the time to say!!! You are 100% right, people really need to get over themselves and stop hating.. Show some love GEEZ.. or don't comment at all...

    Now to those onesies.. HILARIOUS.. I laughed so loud when I read them.. hahah.. needed that..

    I appreciate you always stopping by, leaving lovely comments and just being a all around beautiful spirit :). If there is anything in the closet you like just let me know, it can be held for ya... those flower pants went with the quickness lol..

    Have a fantabulous day Hun..


  19. well said! as public as a blog is, it's such a personal thing and it's unfortunate that people don't respect that. some people just have way too much time on their hands...

  20. I totally agree with you. People are so negative for no reason at all. I feel like I get innundated with negativity every single day! Sooooo over it. Anyway, I am so happy you're back up in running at the house! That had to be scary. Now, as far as the onesies, a few of them are super cute! I am currently preggers with my first little one. Once we find out the gender (in a month) I am going to try to find those onesies, LOL! Love your accessories, btw. Thanks for sharing!

  21. So true! 'You said that!' HA!
    Those onesies are too funny. Loving the top and the jewelry....oh yeah and the sandals.

  22. Giiiiirl..... these onesis.. chiiiile Hee-larry-us.. I may need one of them soon

  23. Lynn, I am glad you said something about the haters out there. And you have two girls 14 and 19??? WOW you look young!

  24. Hey Lynn, I know exactly what you're talking about. Someone has taken my pictures and put them up on a cite and have made fun of them. Bullies come in all shapes and forms and I for one have never been intimidated by a bully. Bullies are just people who are down on themselves and only feel better when they try to bring others down with them. I do what I do for fun. I am no model and neither have I tried to be. I'm me and need an outlet from the real world, hence, I blog. To hell with what other people think! Love your words!!

  25. I'm so glad you shared these words! Sometimes people can be so negative! Sadly, even in the privacy of their own home up on a keypad. That's why I'm so glad to know so many supportive, kind, and thoughtful bloggers because the world can be so cruel and high school!!!!!

    And those onesies are too cute. I like the one that says my dad can beat your dad. I bet hubs would like that one lol.

  26. Those little onesies were too funny! Spencer's will definitely keep you entertained.

  27. funny pics.....
    lovely things...
    we can follow each other if you want

  28. Awww, those onesie's are too cute! I feel where you're coming from. I've had to state that, I'm not a fashionista/expert. I take photos of my outfits when I can just to share. I'm a beauty blogger that blogs for fun, but people cane be rude or expect/assume things. Love your outfit :)

  29. Sorry I'm just now getting back to you, they put your comment in my SPAM folder for some reason! I LOVE YOUR POST! You have to let people know what you are about on here for sure because people think that this is a bash session or free dating service, lol! People are CRAZY on here! They will come on your blog and tell you about what you are wearing and writing about! WHAT IS THAT ABOUT! You keep doing you Ms. Lynn because you looks are HOT and you represent for you and yours and that's what life is all about! - JT
