Music Monday: A Single Girl's Guide to Getting Over Him (or Her).

0 comments


Guess who's back?! This girl right here. Yup, I'm officially back after whats been a long ass hiatus. It was honestly due to creative reasons but whatever, that's all in the past.

I created what I believe is thee perf playlist for any single girl out there right now. Maybe you're working to get over a break up like me (le sigh) or maybe you're just on your "Fuck n***as, get money" tip and that's cool too lol. All in all, you're amazing, fuck him (or her) and get out there and live. Anyone would be happy to have ya. It's 2016 for God's sake! This is our year to wear less and start going out more (like my Drake reference?) Guys(and girls if that's your thing) are assholes anyway. Do you boo boo. Do you.


I believe when it comes to getting over breakups, we do it in phases. I've curated a slew of songs to get you through every phase of your breakup. Your welcome :)

Anyway, take a listen below. LMK if you're feeling it :)

------
Phase 1: Baby don't go...


------
Phase 2: Alright, fuck you then.



------
Phase 3: Same phone, who dis?

So far my 2016 has been pretty damn good. I've been wearing less and going out more, I've even been hanging with some girls you've never seen before :)
Enough Drizzy tho, life has been good. I wore this out on one of the coldest "Miami Winter" nights. No bueno. I ended up going to 2 bars with a friend and got absolutely no numbers at all. Everyone had to be bae'd up that night considering cuffing season is over.

I always tell my friend that no one does that whole "asking out" thing anymore because of the fear of rejection. No one wants to be told "bye felicia" in front of a crowd of people let alone their best friend. The craziest part is that those same people who you see eyeballing you in a club or bar constantly that won't make a move will be quick to slide in ya dm. I don't understand it. The next time I actually go out I'm gonna try it and see what happens. I'll keep ya updated.

I was going for a new cool rocker vibe for the night so I paired my favorite leather skirt with a vintage-esque band tee from Urban Outfitters. To make it look more worn in I added a few last minute touches of tears and holes around the neck. To finish off the look I threw on one of new favorite fashion pieces: a bandana for "bad ass" touch. 
To finish up my look I added a red lip, gold accessories, my trusty Nike cortez and a dope pair of sunnies by Linda Farrow via the dope sunglass rental site Ditto.

Now it may sound a little strange to "rent" sunglasses to some people but I think it's like a great way to find out what styles you like and want without the commitment. I loved these but I'm so excited to receive my next pair.
Hope you guys enjoy your week. Check back tomorrow for a new Music Monday :)

#Newhairwhodis is how I've been feeling lately. A new hair do has a way of making you feel like you're on top of the world. Like "oh damn, where has this been all my life?" I was honestly just ready for something different so I decided to go with this super chic blunt bob in black. 
I'm so excited to style this new do up in different ways! I'm even considering going a bit shorter for a much more dramatic feel. We'll see.
For the past few weeks I've been telling you guys about my latest shopping obsession Banana Republic and this week is no different. Why you ask? See these amazeballs leather gauchos? I scored them last week for a mere $17! Now gauchos are a huge trend this season and I'd always loved a good gaucho but decided to hold off on the trend....That was until I found these!
Now, living in Miami I was a bit hesitant to buy them since I thought it'd be hot ass hell in a leather pant but these are surprisingly cool. I decided to go for a sporty look and kept it simple with a linen white tank and a my fave waistcoat.
I'm so excited to dress these up! Maybe I'll remix them for an upcoming Art Basel party ;)

Lust List: Chic Gifts for any Blogger

Sup! With the holidays nearing faster than ever, it's high time you knock out your significant others wishlist. Now I don't want you to get the idea that I get in my shopping early, I procrastinate too but it always ends up biting me in the butt right at the last minute.

Now if you're dealing with a 'Blogger Boo' or 'Blogger Bestie' then you should definitely use this guide when shopping for her. Being a fellow blogger, over the years I've realized that when in "the field" its a few things one should always have at any time. 

Case in point, this polka dot Comme Des Garcons wallet pouch is great for holding blogger cards, mints, and lip gloss. It can easily be carried in place of a purse if you're more of an 'on the go' chick like me. This camo YSL cardholder pairs great with the pouch because it can easily be found in your purse and its so darn cute. You'll def stand out with it ;)

A few of my other favorites are the yellow Instax camera which is great for on the go photos, the Smith & Cult lipgloss gift set (Must try!) and metallic Frends headphones.

What's your favorite gift?

As of late I've been obsessed more and more with this skirt y'all. I got it about 4 years ago from Forever 21 and when I'm in need of an outfit game changer, this faux leather bit never disappoints. Could you believe I was actually considering giving it away?! Silly, silly girl.

Anywho, I wore this look to church and a little bit of shopping and felt super cool. Instead of going for a heel I went for more of a sporty approach (typical) and threw on my classic Nike Cortez.
While attending an event at a local mall here in Miami, I stopped by Banana Republic just to see what was on sale since they're having a 30-40% off of sale. Lo and behold, I found a piece I'd been searching for all year long. An olive button down shirt. Now, I know you're thinking "woah, woah you can find that just about anywhere" but, I'm super "particular" when it comes to certain pieces. The reason I hadn't purchased one earlier is because they were either too thin, not authentic enough, or a bigger more masculine cut.

Now I usually don't have an issue rocking mens clothing but I wanted the silhouette to be a lot more streamlines and feminine but versatile. This shirt is exactly that. The weight is perfect; you can even style this and wear it in place of a light jacket. To make it even better, it only came out to like $15 :) #Winning

Banana Republic has been killing it lately btw. I love the fact that now the pieces are designed in a way where anyone with any style type can buy one of their pieces and style it in a way completely their own. It's now one of my go to spots!

Sup guys! These pasts few weeks have been a total blur for me. I took these maybe a week or so ago in Tennessee. I had told myself that I'd start taking my camera with me whenever I travel for work s that I could actually document some cool new places. This was actually taken at a local amusement park. I had begged one of my coworkers to "take a few pictures" for me but it turned into an all out photoshoot like always lol.
This bridge tho! I love my job because I get to see so many different things. It's funny because whenever I tell people I'm from Miami they get so excited. I'm always excited and infatuated with anything else other than Miami. Don't get me wrong, I love Miami but after living here for all my life, I'd be okay with not seeing a palm tree. I can't handle the cold tho so...C'est la vie.
As of late I've been super obsessed with casual, sporty chic looks. I can't stop buying Nikes! It seems as if I'm buying atleast 1 pair with every other check. Like a monthly treat yo self thing. Ain't half bad, sometimes you gotta treat yourself to something nice. We work too hard to not enjoy le fruits of our labor. Am I right? Right.

Life is way too short to not love you!

Guys! Guys! I'm back! I'm so sorry to have you all like that but, shit got pretty real these last few months. Like, really real. But things change, people change, shit happens but life still goes on.

Speaking on life, I'm making quite a few changes in mine. I'm back working out (I even signed up for the gym!), traveling more and more for my new job (which I loveeee) and I recently bought a new car. Did I say I turned 24 too? #Libra #LibraSeason
I even started going to this great new church (I need it, see how many times I cursed above?) God is working in my life yo. I'm so thankful and blessed for all he has given me and everything I've been through that led up to this point.

Like I said above, I've been traveling so much for work that I haven't really made time to blog. When I got home last week I made it my business to get a post in. 

Whenever I am traveling for work I almost always stop by Target for snacks + whatever else I couldn't fly with. Well anyone should know by now that you can go to Target with 1 thing in mind and end up leaving with much, much more. Maybe not even what you went there for in the first place. I never pass up the opportunity to check out their clearance section and this last trip was definitely worth the 
I found this super cute scuba skirt for only $16 and this Eddie Borgo x Target pouch for only $6! If that isn't a deal then I don't know what is. Like seriously. I finished off the look with a white v-neck (Only $3 from Target #winning) and gold accessories and purple Nike Huaraches.

Review: Beautiful Textures Naturally Straight Texture Manageability System

0 comments

Sup! As of late I've been experimenting with my hair more than usual. I'm always up for trying a new style so since becoming natural a few years ago, I've been looking for different styles + looks to try. I love my natural curls and short, cropped look but this time around I was looking for a bit of a more drastic look. 

A few months back the lovely team at The Garner Circle and Beautiful Textures sent me an amazing box of goodies filled with tons of new products. One of them was their newest TMS (Texture Manageability System) that helps naturals like me have the versatility of straight hair without the commitment and harsh after effects of perm. I had held on to it for a time like this and it definitely came in great use for this hairstyle.

So to use the product you pretty much wash and cleanse your hair of all product, use their leave in conditioner (which is the straightener) and blow dry then flat iron. Now you have silky smooth locks without any damage. The product didn't have any crazy strong chemically-smell (new word?) and it was pretty damn easy to do.

Before using I watched tons of reviews of Youtube and every result and aftereffect was pretty astonishing.
To complete my look I used this amazing hair from Tisun.com and its the Deja Vu Kinky Yaki Perm line. Would you believe me if I said it was only $14? Yeah. So many people thought this was my real hair, due in part to the fact that my hair blended so well. That would have never happened for me without using a TMS system. Ever.

I've since gone back to my short hair and the transition back was very easy. All I had to do was wash my hair 2-3 times with the provided cleansing shampoo and voila! Back to my coily curls.

Definitely take some time to check this system out if you're natural and looking for a safe way to have straight hair! And if you need this hair in your life, purchase here :)
