MOMMY + ME #5 | HAPPY VALENTINES DAY

2.12.2016

This weekend is going to be filled with LVE from one corner of the world to the other with people celebrating Valentine's Day!  Whether with your sweetie or doing Galentine's Day/Broin' it out, LOVE is definitely in the air!  This little chic and I BRAVED the cold temps to share our love filled looks.  She was so excited to take these until we stepped foot outside.  I'm not going to lie, it was chilly out (hence the snow sticking around), but I'm kinda used to being out taking pics in the cold.  Her - not so much!  Nonetheless, she was a trooper and we ended up with these!

MOMMY + ME INSPIRATION | TUTUS

2.10.2016

Having children are one of the most rewarding experiences one could possibly have.  I was blessed to have one of each, a boy and a girl.  My son is my eldest at 16 years old and my little mini is going on 9 in just about a month.  The boy HATES taking pictures while the girl LOVES everything about a camera!  I've been planning a photo shoot for us for once the weather breaks (I couldn't be more excited) and tutus are the main subject!  Going through Pinterest, I could totally get lost for HOURS at a time looking up recipes, home decor, DIY, just about anything, so today, I created a Mommy + Me board for inspiration for our future shoot.  I can't wait to start DIY'ing our outfits and of course I will be creating pictorials here for you guys as we go along!  Here is a little inspo!

NEW SHOES | JUSTFAB

2.08.2016

I haven't had new shoe therapy since I purchased these beauties back in August '15.  It really has been that long!  For some folks, they would read this and say "well, you don't have to buy new shoes but a couple times a year!"  But that's like telling me that you only need to shower once a month.  It's completely unheard of!  I have a reason as to why, but let's not be repetitive and just move on to my latest babies to enter my closet. 

I GOTTA BIG EGO

2.05.2016

I believe that my husband had an ulterior motive when he purchased this dress for me.  It's SUPER sexy and while I own many like it, I probably wouldn't have picked this up.  For me, it's all about length since my legs are so long.  He knows this!  He just wanted this to work in his favor *wink*!  Nonetheless, I really do love this peacock blue frock mainly because it celebrates all of my lines and curves (even though this mommy pouch is down for the long haul *lesigh*)!

BOAFB CLOSET COLLECTION | JANUARY 2016

2.03.2016

So, January pretty much slipped from under my grasp to really start my blogging year out right AND I'm way late with posting this! *SIGH* I can't really use the "trying to get in a routine" excuse anymore seeing how I've been at my job about 2 1/2 months now.  My weeks don't share the same work days BUT I've been working long enough to be adjusted to working again.  *double SIGH*  I just need to get better at getting out and shooting!  My husband was on my side this weekend, motivating/helping me shoot for Monday's post and I have tons of ideas like including my daughter more (she can be seen herehereherehere and here *phew*), it's all about execution.

THE MONTH OF LOVE

2.01.2016

Happy February!  The month of LOVE!!  February has always been one of my favorite months, even though it's cold out.  Maybe because Spring is right around the corner?  Maybe!  I decided to start the month off with this lovely oxblood colored dress from LookBook Store! I've always been a fan of jeweled toned reds.  I feel like it looks great against my skin. :)  I decided to pair it with this 3/4 sleeved trench and black accessories to let the color shine all by itself.
