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?
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.
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...

Who likes Twizzlers? Anybody? Well I sure don't.They are gross--bland even.I will have no parts of that.So why did I name this post Liquorice then? Well, because the dress looks like Twizzler.Doesn't it? Please say it does...
Hi Kids! *in my Keke Palmer voice. Thanks for stopping by today. The gag for today is *drum roll please JUST BE YOURSELF! Why you ask? Because everyone else is taken. It is so easy to get lost on the sauce in a world of social media and fashion overload, especially as a blogger. There is a thin line between inspiration and emulation which is very easy to get crossed and or blurred. As many of you may know, I love a great inspired look.I may see something on someone and it may spark my imagination and that is how is starts. I also don't mind acknowledging the origins of my inspirations either. In a world, where sometimes style is masked in a uniform look of Olive and nude colored bodycon, middle -parted hair ,flawless makeup, and coke-bottle body types it is refreshing to see so many resist the peer pressure and potential IG likes just to be true to their style. I admire that and that is why I pay homage.
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
