My hair was experiencing dryness lately and I knew it was time to switch up my hair routine. After all its fall and the air is dry. I came across Art Naturals Daily Organic Argan Oil Shampoo while on Amazon.com. Two things led me to buying this product. One it's made with Argan Oil a moisturizing agent which was exactly  what I hair needed and two the thousands of positive feedback. This shampoo didn't disappoint me one bit. It product is not only for black hair or natural hair.

Holiday Party Outfit ideas: The Mini Dress

Hi guys, thanks for stopping by my blog! I hope you had a fantastic weekend? I had quite a busy weekend and I am glad its Monday. I am sharing another holiday party outfit today. I picked "the Mini" this week, a perfect outfit for your "inner fun girl." Fun fact about me, I never wore short dresses till about 10 years ago. I just never felt comfortable in them because of the usual excuses ("Oh my legs are too short/ too fat, Oh they will look funny, my knees are huge" etc)  Anyone can pull off a short dress, the key is finding one that fits your body type. Pantyhose can be worn under mini dresses too in the colder months or just as a way to ease into them.

What to do for Fall: Southern Belle Farm visit

Hi guys and thanks for stopping by my blog. Today I am sharing some pictures from my recent trip to a farm about an hour away from Atlanta called Southern Belle Farm. About a week ago the kids were off school (Fall Break) and I decided it wasn't just going to be another break sitting home or visiting a play center lol. It's Fall after all, so I thought a visit to a Pumpkin Patch in a farm would be fun for my kids.  It was a bit of a drive but definitely worth it!

11 reasons why you are experiencing hair breakage

It's been a while since I had a hair post up on the blog and for that I apologize. I have been working on a video (in my head) I keep making excuses on how awful it will be. In any way, bear with me while I gather myself together and get the video together. I have been meaning to blog about hair breakage for a while now, breakage/shedding can be specific to a region or it can occur all over! Over the years my hair has experienced breakage at one point or the other. Here are some of the reasons why and much more.

Fall Fashion trend: Floral dress

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog.

What to wear to work: Pencil skirt and an embellished blouse

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope you had a great weekend? I am starting off this new week in an office wear inspiration. I have been asked about office wear options in the past, so I decided to write a post about it. I wanted to pick something simple yet stylish that can be easily recreated. I turned to my high waist pencil skirt which I previously wore here as a night look. Invest in a neutral high waist pencil skirt, its a versatile wardrobe staple (also high waist skirts are move forgiving in the tummy area.) Navy, nude and grey are other amazing color options:-)

Vacation: Barcelona, Spain

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog. As I mentioned recently, I went on a vacation to the UK and Barcelona recently. I am sharing a few pictures from my Barcelona trip today. I was born in London and lived there for a bit after high school.

This trip was no exception except that I also had a wedding to attend were I wore this dress.

I had a busy weekend and ate really bad (covers face, lol)  right now I am trying to play catch up this week and most importantly eat better and detox!

Weekend style inspiration: Ruched Pencil Skirt

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog, I am ending the week with a weekend fashion inspiration post.

I will be sharing weekly easy, chic and affordable styles for the weekend that can easily be created on any budget.

Ankara style

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope you had a great weekend?  Ankara or still sometimes called Dutch wax print is one of my favorite fabrics! As an African, this fabric reminds me of home  :-) I find myself mixing it up with other fabrics very often in the warmer months as part of my daily outfit choice or sometimes I incorporate it with my winter fashion. A  few years ago, wearing Ankara here in the United States would bring stares because people weren't familiar with this fabric but fast-forward to now, its a different experience. People know more about it and it has been embraced by the fashion industry. 

Clover Canyon: Versatile Pencil Skirt

Hi and thanks for  stopping by my blog. I am starting off the new month of August in a high waist pencil skirt. Pencil skirts are an essential in every woman's closet. They transition easily from day to night and come in different colors, textures and print. High waist pencil skirts do just that too but with a bonus, they highlight one's silhouette:-)

Vacation: Naples, Florida

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog. I went on a family vacation a few weeks ago to Naples, Florida. Why Naples you might ask, we wanted a beautiful resort with beach access, activities to keep the kids entertained and yeah I wanted a spot with a spa, lol. Naples is about 8.5 hours from Atlanta and like most Florida cities, it is very beautiful and laid back. There are lots of resorts in Naples and it has an amazing night life and apparently rivals Miami (according a local my husband chatted with.) Its a popular holiday spot in winter when most of the country is freezing. Going there in the summer (off peak season for them, gives you more for your money) We chose the Ritz Carlton resort for our stay. Lets just say everything was amazing, service, food, spa, beach, you name it. 

Shift dress: Embellished option

Hello and thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you had a wonderful weekend? I am starting off this week in my usual manner, with a fashion post. I had an event last month and I needed a stand out piece that was within a reasonable budget (under $50). It was for a day event, so I knew a shift dress would be perfect. I love shift dresses because they are easy, no fuss outfit option and they can transition easily from summer to fall. (Throw on a pair of tights and you are fall ready) I found this embellished number by Asos and I knew that it would be perfect for my event.

Suit up in a Tuxedo Structured Romper

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog. I am kicking off this new week in a structured blue romper. I have always been a fan of tuxedos, the fit and flare to them is amazing and y'all know I am a sucker for rompers too, so I couldn't pass on this one. Lets not forget about the color. This outfit would be perfect for girl's night out or just a fun night with your beau. I chose to accessorize it differently to show two different ways to dress up the romper. Rompers are always a great alternative to dresses and you are more likely to stand out in a simple yet chic number like this one. Never be afraid to dive in and try something different.

Adding Vamp to your look

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog. I am starting off the week in this gorgeous this red number. I am a believer in making an outfit mine by either wearing it differently or adding a special something to make it stand out. Today's outfit is classic example. Step away from the norm and don't conform to standards by styling your outfit differently. I will be diving into more of this in future posts. I purchased this outfit from a closet sale recently (an amazing way to add to your closet without breaking the bank.) Thrift shopping both in store or online is another way to do this.

Summer chic: Stripped Maxi Dress

Hi and thanks  for stopping by my blog. Yesterday's weather here in Atlanta went from wet and gloomy in the morning to sunny with beautiful skies later in the afternoon so I knew I had to sneak in a quick shoot (perfect weather for pictures.) 
I chose this outfit because maxis are one of my summer fashion essentials and this print is simply irresistibly. ‎Maxis are very versatile, put it on, add a pair of heels and you are ready for an event from a wedding to dinner or keep it simple with flats and you are dressed perfect for a day/casual event.

Easy Watermelon cake

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog. Happy new month! I cant believe we are already in the second half of the year. Today, I am sharing a quick and healthy recipe that would be perfect for your next summer event. Independence day here in the United States is a few days away and grilling will be on the top list of most Americans. I found this recipe online last summer and tried it last summer. It was a big hit and is now part of my menu during bbqs. The best part of this recipe is that you don't have to be a pro to make a beautiful Watermelon cake and yes it is a healthier and might I add pretty looking dessert. Skip the high sugar, high calorie desserts and opt for this refreshing dessert option that everyone will love.
