When life give you limes...wait-- when has life given us limes or lemons for that matter? I can tell you what it has given me, metaphors about food that reflect how we handle hard times.Enough already! Sorry, sorry, so sorry please forgive me.I am hungry.I'm pregnant .I'm always hungry,lemme go eat real quick.
Ok, I'm back! That hunger is no joke guys! So where was I? Oh yea , food;the limes. The perfect garnish to any summer beverage (I miss drinking...7 more months!) and its color its just as pleasing in dress form.I have never been too keen on green, but this summer I am changing that.I'm always here for Olive (of course),but bright green is such a fun and festive color and brings so much life.Green has always been the color associated with earthy, natural, fresh, and the idea of being reborn.Being with child, I'd say this color was made for me.
Instead of taking my twists out , like I planned in a blind rage, I opted to wrap them up courtesy of Shop Fe-line.My citrus-hued Ankara head wrap was the perfect accessory to accent my dress and keep me from passing out under my long ass twists (that I now regret doing in the HEEEEAAATT of the summer).My wrap is sold out but I have picked out some other fab head pieces to keep your hair off your neck this hell season-- err I mean Summer.
I live in the South and on a nice day in the Summer, its a bearable thousand degrees.Instead of going butt-naked, like I planned before the "knocking up" , I'm doing the next best thing.Showing shoulder and clavicle is all I got right now while I beef up (uummmm food).This off the shoulder dress is the perfect length and the perfect hue to pop against my melanin.I'm glowing out in these streets!!
In love with the green but not the idea of spending it all on a dress? Check out these amazing picks below starting at $14!

What accessories go with a sunny citrus palette? Well if its against brown skin, then the answer is brown of course.My brown gladiator sandals are 1,000 years old from GoJane and I practically stole them for $7.50.I paired them with my leather Selma Michael Kors purse.Speaking of MK, did you hear they just bought the luxury shoe line Jimmy Choo? Chile , lemme just shut my over-mass produced ,reduced-quality,over-saturated-basic-handbag-having-ass up.
My leather choker along with my gold earring really seal this deal.My choker is from the company 4everunicornfashion.Fun Fact: I was asked to be the face of their company and I said YES!!

So I am back!! Morning sickness and 24 sleepy feeling be gone! I missed you all so much.I have literally been up to nothing other than harboring a little human who has been zapping all my energy and food.I was so pitiful yall.All I did everyday was gag and then go home and sleep for 12 hrs.I had new clothes and I didn’t even feel like trying them on.That is sooooo not me! The lethargy also had me doubting myself like “what if I forget how to put clothes together?” or “what if I just lose my mojo?”.This preganancy has been playing tricks on me. I am officially heading into my 2nd trimester and am ready to get back to the slay. Did you guys miss me?
I know Mothers Day was Sunday , but I am very unorthodox in my means of celebrating.Todays post is all about mom’s who I love , admire and inspire me.Can you tell which Mega Mogul Mommy inspired this look? I will give you a hint.IT’S BEYONCE!
Humping on this humpday…barely.These weeks are literally dragging by, but in fast motion. Does that even make sense? Lol So what about Monday’s post? Let me explain.I was tired.I had a busy weekend and I am learning that life exists outside of the blog.One of my besties graduated with her nursing degree so Saturday I was kicking back with her and my other besties and still had to find time to shoot. With summer rolling around the corner, there was no better idea than shooting my cool summer kickback look at my friend’s kickback/grad party.
After some much need head clearing and closet cleaning I am back! After crying and cleaning I feel so much relief. Suprisingly I realized what lead to a lot of my increased anxiety last week; PMS.I forget about that every month *sighs in cramps and balls up in a corner.Upon cleaning out my closet I not only realized I have way too much, but also that I need to reuse more pieces. Versatility and reusability are vital keys in fashion.Buying pieces and wearing them once is like a one hit wonder.No one really wants that.Longetivity in a piece or in any industry is always the goal.
It's been a while. I haven't posted since I was 28.Man I getting on up there. So how have you guys been?
How was my birthday weekend? Oh ,I'm glad you asked!
I was sick,like unto death sick.I may be 29 now , but I'm still dramatic.
But really, I was like sooooo sick.
I was stumped about what I would talk about on my next post after my horrific experience posting on Monday. However I was on Facebook and saw a post stating a fashion blogger just got arrested for being a real life "Joanne the Scammer".I saw it on a gossip site, so I quickly did my research.I don't want to be talking about some lies and being messy.Get ready for the mess,yesssss let's...
