Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Special thanks to the VIP fans who tuned in for the live blogging/social media broadcast of the DSW Shoe Love Party at Colonial Brookwood Village in Birmingham!  It was so much fun getting to work with B-Metro Magazine and Erica Bunker of D.I.Y. Style for this shoe-tacular event, and I am so pumped that I was able to share it with all of you…LIVE! I mean, come on…how fabulous was that?!

Now, I want to share with y’all the shoe-tacular (I just love that word! Don’t you think I should submit it to Merriam-Webster Dictionary *wink*) photos I was not able to tweet and post during the live event–because there is only so much time in a few hours *wink* So, without further ado, I present to you the VIP Scrapbook of the DSW Shoe Love Party at Colonial Brookwood Village with B-Metro Magazine!

Of course, I had to stop to take a thumbs up mirror picture...but unfortunately, this pic did not make it out to social media. *wink*

The last live-styled looks I put together at the DSW Shoe Love Party. I love the way the colorful scarf POPS up against the black:)

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to Beauty Tues!

I was in Sephora a few weeks ago when I picked up this snazzy Ciate Feathered Manicure Kit ON SALE for $7.00–originally, the kit was around $40.00. So, I said, “why not?! I have been wanting to DIY some nail art, and the kit has detailed instructions…where…

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Today, I have been unpacking boxes, organizing my magazine collection, picking out paint colors, and shopping for bedding–at some point, I took a break to eat at Chick Fil A *wink*

Thus far into the moving process, I have learned that creativity is a messy thing…but a good kind of messy…an inspiring kind of messy…a fun kind of messy! After…
