Fashion Tips for Lazy Girls / Guest Post

Hey everyone! I’m Maya from! Monique asked me to guest post this week and of course I had to say YES! Since I’m a fashion “n00b”, I consider myself  a “lazy girl,” which is basically someone who is low maintenance when it comes to all things fashion. This summer I went through an experience that pushed me out of my comfort zone and forced me to dress up! Check out that story in the video below along with my own fashion tips for lazy girls!

Time flies when you’re having fun!

The month of October just flew by didn’t it? I spent some time in South Beach and Orlando, Florida and it feels like a dream. LOL! I can’t believe it’s already November. I’m freaking out over here. It’s going way too fast. I saw a Christmas commercial yesterday and I’ve determined I’m not ready. I didn’t even do anything for Halloween because I was sick. I saw everyone’s costumes and I was very jealous. Speaking of October…Breast Cancer Awareness month was one I’ll never forget. In fact, I created a quick video for you all. Check it out below. Oh…don’t forget…
