I love being inspired by successful people and I was moved by Lupita Nyong’os‘ acceptance speech during last nights Academy Awards. It’s so easy to get lost in the idea that our dreams are just that; something we fantasize about but never really attain because dreams by definition are “not real”. I, however want to be one of those people who validates their dreams and I hope you do too. Let’s get it!
Are you working towards your dreams?
p.s. Lupita and Camila Alves were my best dressed faves from last night!
If I were a celebrity people would probably think I am promoting “evil” by wearing this top, but I would like to go on the record and just say I am wearing it simply because I think it’s dope! I love the gold detail and the shirt is really comfortable too.
We had “nice” weather last weekend which for us was about 50-something degrees so I ventured out and left my winter coat behind hoping to summon a quicker return of Spring. However, it was still too cold for me so I threw on my Civil Clothing cap and this was the outcome. It’s probably one of the most “street” looks I’ve worn since I don’t even know when, but hopefully you guys dig it!
What are you wearing today?
This is the outfit I wore on Valentine’s Day with my new Melie Bianco bag that was a V-Day gift from my bf. I love the idea of black and white with a pop of color so I threw on my neon pink MyTee B.A.D. beanie!
Outfit Details: Coat – Via Spiga | Blouse – Forever 21 | Skirt – Mystique Boutique | Shoes – H&M | Beanie - MyTee B.A.D. | Handbag – Melie Bianco
On V-Day the bf and I ate all of my favorite foods and had a blast getting creative as we painted our own canvases (pic here). It was a really fun idea and I recommend it for anyone looking to have a creative date night! You can also check out my post on the Goodwill Blog with 3 fun at home date ideas!

I had the pleasure of covering the backstage action before the Tracy Reese Fall 2014 Runway show during New York Fashion Week and it was such a cool experience! These are some of the behind the scenes photos I snapped with make up by Mally Beauty, Hair by Ouidad and nails by Sally Hansen.
The hair for the show was to look natural and textured almost as if you didn’t style it at all. There were 5 different makeup looks with “Exuberant” being my favorite because I loved the gold metallic glitter flakes that were sprinkled on the cheeks. It looked so pretty! I also loved the “Melancholy” look with a watercolor effect on the eyes using soft pinks, blues, peach, navy and beige.
The Tracy Reese Fall 2014 collection draws inspiration from juxtapositions, playing the loud and ecstatic against the pragmatic and quietly complex to create classically modern silhouettes in commanding cloths. The collection takes an intimate look at self-expression, intermixing utility pieces with unique elements that provide pops of personality and spirit. ~ Tracy Reese
I really enjoyed the Tracy Reese show and like how wearable her collection is for the everyday woman. She had an amazingly diverse cast of models, which I love to see at fashion shows. My favorite looks were the menswear inspired silhouettes, oversized embroidered sweaters and the amazing jackets. I seriously need to step my coat game up after seeing this show!

The law of attraction states that what we think about and more importantly put feeling behind we bring about in our lives so everyday I make a conscious effort to think and feel good as much as I can. In doing this I have seen amazing results with my fitness goals and I want to share with you guys what I have been doing besides eating better and exercising.
- I have made the word “weight” a taboo. I no longer use the word weight because if you constantly worry about putting on weight or gaining weight or even losing weight the universe has no choice but to give you WEIGHT!
- I don’t feel Guilt. If I want to enjoy a piece of cake or order french fries with my meal I do it and I enjoy it and I don’t allow myself to feel guilty for it. Feeling guilty will attract more guilt in the form or weight gain!
- I use positive mantras. ”I am healthy” and “I am slim” are my go-to’s. Always include the words ” I am” in your mantras.
It is because I changed my way of thinking in regards to my body and eating habits that I was finally able to lose the last bit of weight that I have been trying to get rid of for a very long time. I also have been able to keep the weight off (without exercise) and I am so happy!
How are you achieving your fitness goals?
I had the pleasure of attending the LuLu’s.com New York Fashion Week Style Studio event in NYC over the weekend. I had a great time catching up with some of my favorite blogger babes, checking out all of the awesome brands and scoring some amazing freebies while enjoying delicious cocktails courtesy of Hpnotiq! Here are a few photos from the event!
I ran into so many familiar faces like my girls Laura, Heather and Erin and had the pleasure of meeting new blogger babes too! The Hpnotiq cocktails were gooood. I loved the ‘Sparkling Sweetheart’ made with Hpnotiq Harmonie and Prosecco! Lulus also had a fun fashion wheel where you could Spin to Win gifts like clothes, shoes and gift cards from their sponsors. The items were available whiles supplies lasted so I made sure to be one of the firsts on line!
Thanks to the power of positive thinking I won the super freakin’ cute crochet dress I had my eye on by clothing brand Others Follow! Lulu’s was also very kind enough to gift everyone one free item from their Style Studio and I snatched up these Ark & Co. pants because I seriously need more printed bottoms in my life. Both of these pieces have me lusting so hard for sunshine and Spring time!
The gifting suite was chock full o’ goodies from a ton of brands including Lush, Twistband, Too Faced, NYX, Shea Moisture, Bodyography and my new fave One Love Organics! The ladies from One Love Organics were so nice and their products sound pretty freaking amazing and I can’t wait to try them out especially the best seller beauty balm called Skin Savior. I’ll be sure to talk more about all of these products in my next favorites post so stay tuned!
Thanks so much for a great night LuLus!
