Style Trend | Military Brass

Give me all of the buttons! I haven’t shared a style trend post with you guys in a while. I guess I wasn’t feeling too inspired. That was until I saw these military-inspired pieces.

Which piece do you like the most?  1. Torrid Zip Front Military Jacket 2. American Rag Trendy Plus Size Military Jacket 3. Eloquii Military Peplum Top 4. Eloquii Mock Neck Military…

Christian Siriano for Lane Bryant | NYC Launch

Since day one, I’ve been a Christian Siriano fan. I knew he would do amazing things and design glamorous gowns. When I first heard he was collaborating exclusively with Lane Bryant, my heart kind of skipped a beat. High fashion was coming our way! With this limited edition collection, he has given us fall looks straight from the runway. And I was lucky enough to attend the launch party in New York City and snag an impromptu interview with the designer himself. Even though this was a whirlwind of a trip, I was really excited to be in the…

Travel Diary | Virginia is for Travel Lovers

I’ll never forget the first time I walked onto an airplane. I was 19-years-old and I was headed off to Texas for Basic Military Training. This is when I learned all about the fine skill of hyperventilating. It was probably, to this day, one of the worst flights of my life. Down to the thunder and lightening storm that followed me all the way to San Antonio. You’d think this would’ve scared me into never flying again…wrong. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve flown and how many more flights are in my future. It’s all because I…

How to Refresh Dry Summer Hair | Giveaway (Closed)

Summer is almost over and it’s hopefully left you with fun memories and a maybe even a great tan…if that’s your kind of thing. Or you could be left with dry and brittle hair from the chlorine, sun, salt water, hair products, and even heat styling. Now, I wouldn’t consider myself a beauty guru. But, more like a beauty realist. I know we come from all kinds of walks of life and different hair types. So, as I sat on my couch reflecting on what I can do to refresh my hair for the upcoming fall season. That’s when I thought…

Summer Moments to Remember

This post is in collaboration with JCPenney. What can I say about summer that you aren’t already thinking? You basically love it and never want it to end right? It’s like this season was created for special moments with the people you care most about. I’ll admit I used to be more of a winter kind of girl, but this summer has been one to remember. I don’t want it end either, because of days like this one. Just so you know, my mama is pretty much my everything. We are a lot alike and we love to spend time…

Living a Bold Life—My Way

Sponsored by J.M. Smucker company. If you would’ve asked me five years ago if I was living a bold life, I’m not sure I would’ve been able to answer you truthfully. Maybe because I wasn’t. I had just been diagnosed with anxiety and fear ruled my life. There were no courageous moments and I definitely wasn’t taking any daring chances. It was a dark time and one I’m not ashamed to talk about. Over the years, I’ve continued to battle my anxiety. And I probably will for the rest of my life. But, I’m happy to report that fear and…
