Oversized Sweater Dress Style

Sunday, December 9, 2018

Red is winters Holiday Season color but I can were red year around..haha. I wanted to share with you today this oversized sweater dress. I feel like you cannot go wrong with a chunky sweater dress; this Holiday Season. You can style this many ways or just add different accessories to bring down or spice up your look. I did not shoot the look but even wearing black or sparkle nylons with a cute pointed heel or bootie will change up this sweater dress. This year coming up I really want to share on "how to" style same dress or top different ways; that way you don't break the bank. It's all about ballin on a budget and yes, you can re-wear the same thing more than once (ya feel me). Hope you like the looks babes and if you can have any questions or need advice you know where to find me. Have a great week coming up!

Hair Products
Obsessed with Ty Alexander hair care. My hair has never felt better. Since my first cut my hair is longer and feels healthier. I use the dry shampoo for volume and texture after styling or when I feel like my hair is getting a tad oily this will do the job. The hydrating oil I use after washing my hair and follow up with the heat styling spray to protect my hair from blow drying and use it after styling. Leaving my hair shiny and healthy. You babes need these in your life and visit the salon; it is beautiful. Here's their contact info-- TyAlexander Salon (click here)

Skin Care Products


These are two cleansers I am currently using Mario Enyzme Gel and Tula cleansing oil. Another alternative oil I would recommend would be the Burts Bees Oil. Works as good! I follow up with the toner by Mario Badescu. 

I use the Genifique Serum as my daily skincare routine. This stuff is amazing, it's helped my skin look glowy and dewy; preparing my skin for makeup. I also swear by wearing SPF daily and I absolutely love Lancome's dark spot correcting moisturizer.

Best setting spray or you can use this after your regular skin care routine for extra hydration.

This acne spot treatment saved my crazy breakout. It has 5.5% Benzoyl Peroxide and Micro Exfoliating LHA which acts as a cell turn over to help shed the top layer of skin gently. When I feel or see a bump coming in this stuff works amazingly. Apply a very light layer and bye volcano..haha!

Wild Rose Brightening Serum has helped with my scarring and post blemishes. 
It smells divine and does what it says. 

This is my last step to my nightly routine. Gentle exfoliator while you sleep and smells very earthy. This has to be one of my favorite night creams and I have no plans on changing or trying anything different. Anytime soon that is.

Pop of color Blazer

Tuesday, May 22, 2018

Hey Babes!!! 
I know it's been forever but I am back. I had to take sometime off to be with family and just focus on myself. My grandma recently passed getting personal with you guys, and it was a difficult week. Staying positive and strong. Now, for today's post I am bringing you a pop of color. A structured blazer you need this spring. From the looks of it this weather isn't warming up anytime soon so don't put away those jackets away; just yet. I love the suited "Profresh" look and throwing on a blazer makes it just that. Sharing a few favorite blazers with you babes and showing you how I styled my blazer. I love to hear from you babes so comment below what you think. Appreciate all the love and support. Have a great week!

Cartagena, Colombia-Vacay Style

Sunday, March 18, 2018

In the beautiful city of Cartagena, Colombia. A city full of culture and history is what you will see in Cartagena. I loved everything about it and all the little corners that caught my eye. We stayed in Cartagena for 3 nights at an Air BNB. The air bnb was located in the "Walled City" in the heart of Old Cartagena. It is a city within a city; so crazy! This is the place to travel in Colombia to see the historic buildings and history of Cartagena. I would probably only recommend staying here 1 night because you can literally see it all in one day. The night life is awesome and lots of restaurants to choose from. While in Cartagena you can travel to other islands by boat for the day and 15 minutes to get to Bocagrande, which is similar to Miami (city by the beach). The nightlife in Bocagrande is awesome as well, but while on the beach be prepared for many vendors trying to hustle you..haha! 

I have been to Colombia before but not to Cartagena. Colombia is full of life and culture; which is the main reason to travel to another country is to see and take it all in. It is defiantly a culture shock and really makes you appreciate everything you have back home. I feel very blessed to be able to travel and celebrate my birthday in another country; grateful for another year of life. Glad to be home and back to the grind. Sharing with you some highlights of my trip and vacay style.

Shop all my looks below and if you have any travel recommendations please leave a comment. Already planning my next trip.

Ps. Did I mention we were rollin deep..haha! About 14 of us.
