Winter Colors continued...

I fell in love with this salmon blazer at Fashion To Figure so much that I purchased two. The color is just perfect to pop any outfit. I have been wearing it with everything and it has become my favorite winter purchase. My next purchases will consist of an amazing NYE dress and some amazing shoes. I've never really partied for New Years so this will be my first year going all out. It's also one of my best friends birthday so it's gonna be MAJOR!

Winter Colors

I'm a big fan of black, especially in the winter. All black everything. This season I'm trying things a little different. I plan on infusing a bright color with every outfit. I'm loving the ponchos, bright colors, color blocking etc.. This is the season to experiment.

Beauty Tips

With a sea of beauty products for every beauty dilemma try some of these crazy but useful tips before breaking in the bank..

1) Scent Strands with Perfume
Spray a light shot of fragrance into the bristles of your brush. Run it through strands from roots to ends and your hair will smell amazing throughout the day.

2) Cure Calluses with Vaseline
Slather on the petroleum jelly, and put on socks before bed to dissolve tough calluses overnight. Also, try a foot buffer right after you bathe to scrub off dead skin.

3) Soothe Dry Skin with Avocado
Take a ripe avocado, remove the pit and skin, and mash it up in a bowl. Put it all over your body are your super dry spots, let it sit for about 10 to 15 minutes, then rinse off. Avocado is a natural moisturizer and will leave your skin hydrated and baby soft.

4) Add Vitamin E Oil To Your Fragrant Lotions
Fragrant lotions aren’t the best for moisturizing skin, add a drop are two of Vitamin E oil into your lotion for extra luster and great smell. Vitamin E Oil can be found at most major health food and grocery stores.

5) Toothpaste on a pimples
Put a pea-size amount of toothpaste on the pimple. Let sit for 15 minutes to absorb the oil, then wash off.

6) Hot Curl Your Lashes
If you have un-tameable lashes, try curling them into place with your metal eyelash curler and hair dryer. Warm your lash curler with the hair dryer for a few seconds to heat and curl lashes like normal.

7) Exfoliate Your Underarms
For dark arm pits and dry flaky skin an easy trick is to exfoliate them with a gentle face scrub to keep that skin fresh looking.
8) Shave with Conditioner
Conditioner softens the hair so it’s easier to shave off and makes legs and armpits silky and soft.

9) Incredible Egg-White Mask
To put life back into tired, dull skin without hitting the spa , crack open an egg in a bowl, separate the yolk, and use the egg whites to make a face mask. The proteins help to heal and restore skin’s moisture. Leave it on for five minutes, and rinse off.

Solange Braids and The Red Lip

I love Solange point blank period! Her style is ahhmazing! She inspired me to try these waist length braids. Aka the Justice Braids (Janet Jackson in Poetic Justice). I had to try these. So I paired it with a bare face and a red lip. What do you ladies think?

Also I've been trying to build my portfolio as a stylist. So I have been working on TFP shoots. I'm excited to see where it will take me. I always like challenging myself. Check out this Baby Stroller carved from a Watermelon I did for a friend's baby shower. Tell me what you think! - ♥Dee

Monif C Holiday Collection

I love when a designer is consistent, year after year they showcase a collection to die for leaving you to yearn for every single item. Monif C's newest collection is no exception. She is consistent her quality is amazing and the fit of her dresses are to die for! I'm in love with every single piece from her new Holiday Collection! I think I would wear anything modeled by Denise Bidot or Fluvia Lacerda. Crossing my fingers for this sequin show-stopper.

Uggh! I love this one too...(ahh! screams from my bank acct)

Check out the rest of the collection

My First "Normal" Weekend

When I say September has been the worst month of this year I mean it. Usually it's the best month as my birthday is the first celebration, but every weekend something crazy is happening. This weekend happened to be my first "normal" weekend. I went to the bar with my girls and met up with my BFF in the city. Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend.

I ♥ Quotes

I can sit and read through quotes and inspirational messages all day long. In my phone I have notes and text messages of quotes and affirmations they help me through my day. I ran across two quotes by Stacey Charter. Amazingly I can't find any information on this wonderful woman. Here are two of my favorites.

“There comes a time when you have to stand up and shout:
This is me damn it! I look the way I look, think the way I think, feel the way I feel, love the way I love! I am a whole complex package. Take me... or leave me. Accept me - or walk away! Do not try to make me feel like less of a person, just because I don't fit your idea of who I should be and don't try to change me to fit your mold. If I need to change, I alone will make that decision.
When you are strong enough to love yourself 100%, good and bad - you will be amazed at the opportunities that life presents you.”


"Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself - no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are - completely; the good and the bad - and make changes as YOU see fit - not because you think someone else wants you to be different."

I love to post quotes like these on my Facebook page because you never know who may need to see something inspiring for the day. If you have any quotes you live by or positive affirmations please let me know!

The Dog Days of Summer

Mood Swings

Dressing in this heat is nothing blog worthy. The weather in NYC had to be 100 degrees plus last week and the commute is the worst part of your day. You don't know heat until you stand in a hot subway tunnel after a long day of work. I have been keeping it easy breezy. Harem Pants and Crop Tops. This week the temps are cooler in the 80's and we even got some rain. Hence I started dressing like I actually cared. I've decided to just buy a new camera for my bday which is September 1st! I know you guys are tired of seeing the work bathroom pics. This green-gold necklace below is my favorite purchase of the year. I will most likely be wearing it with everything. Hope you enjoy your day!

Team Ombre

My favorite motto is "Why pay someone when you can do it yourself". I was inspired by Keke Palmer's hair at the 2011 BET Awards. Now I was not ready for the big price tag that came with professional coloring. So I did it myself. And who doesn't love a little DIY when it comes to beauty?

Pre Mid Life Crisis

Is anyone getting to the age where they feel like everyone around them is getting married and having kids and your not even in a stable relationship? At the age of 24 two months shy of my 25th birthday I am suffering from a pre-mid life crisis. If that makes any sense. Dating for me is tough only because I’m not the best at communication. If I am feeling a certain way about a situation I tend to shut the other party out and ignore them until I am ready to talk. Selfish, yes. Little Kiddish, yes. In today’s social society it is hard to keep the interest going after the flame is winding down from the initial “get-to-know-you” phase. And with Facebook and Twitter sometimes you find out something about a person that you don’t particularly like. I know I sound like I'm whining but dating in this day and age (damn i'm old) is hard. Anyone have any advice or inspirational messages for this Hopeless Romantic?

A Week of OTD via my Blackberry

My camera is out of service...Well not the camera but I need a new battery. Sucks! So my outfit posts are via my BlackBerry in the bathroom at work until the new one comes from Ebay. I am trying to get to a point where I can post more, but I am always so busy. I promise to keep up. So here I present Outfit of The Day Camera in the Mirror BBM Pose. LOL!

You make me blush...

Fact about me. I love black and white! This season's influx of nude colors is pulling me in the other direction though. I fell in love with this Micheal Kors shirt dress in Macy's. And the good news is it was 50% off. I dashed to the register. With nude colors less is more as far as accessories so I kept it simple. This soft baby pink is what you will most likely see me in all summer. On the other hand I am dying to try the color blocking trend. Hmmph. We'll see.

So many great things are happening for me and I'm excited to take you on the journey with me.
