Black, Tan & a Fanny Pack!












Dress- NY & Co (Similar), Bag- Gucci, Boots- old (Similar).

Hello, so I was thinking about fashion and how things (trends) come and go. I was thinking of trends and how some trends are worth investing in than others.  The fanny pack is one trend that as much as I like it, I would not want to buy a designer fanny pack.  Because it's not worth it for me but I like the trend, I got creative with a small handbag and wore it as a fanny pack here.

About this look, I initially wanted to keep this look in all black but thought to add a pop of  color and  decided to use this tan/nude bag because I don't wear these two colors together.  I also wanted to wear this bag as a fanny pack style which is trending and I'm playing with the idea of showing how to do this on youtube. I am actually one of the group of people who actually like the fanny pack trend, do you like the trend?  Thanks for stopping by!

Motherhood: lalabu Soothe Shirt!



Hello, so with motherhood I’m finding some new products that are helping with the process and this is one of them.  I was gifted the lalabu baby soothe shirt and they had no requests for me except to share a picture if I wanted to and because I liked it, I decided to do a quick review too.  

When I was contacted by them, I was curious about the name lalabu because sometimes names have their meanings and this one did too and I loved its ties to Africa being African myself. I also love that a percentage of the sales goes towards a great cause and you can read about it more on their website here.

I’ll start with the packaging because I’m a sucker for cute packaging and this one did not disappoint.  The quality of the tank is great, it’s soft yet firm that you’d feel more confident knowing your baby would be secure in it instead of some flimsy, cheap fabric.  I was a bit worried Ella would might not be happy in there not because she might not be comfortable but because she might not be used to be in carriers since I haven’t put her in one very much. To my surprise, she was comfortable and just sucked her finger in it.  I loved her being so close to me.  It does have a weight requirement of approximately 7 to 15 pounds and I have to say Ella was slightly above this but still fit in it.  It does recommend placing a hand to support baby as well. 

In the summer you can pair it with any bottoms and in the colder weather, you can add a sweater like I did or a jacket/coat.  

The only recommendation I’d say is if you are in between sizes, especially with post baby weight, to go up a size.  

It comes in other colors and lalabu has other products like leggings and also products for dads so check them out here

(All opinions are mine but this was gifted and appreciated).
Thanks for reading!

STYLE: Plum with fun sleeves!






Skirt- H&M (love this), Top- H&M (Here), Heels- Christian Louboutin, Loafers- Justfab (Similar, Similar), Plum bag- Celine, Beige Bag- Michael Kors (Similar).

Hello! So I am wrote this post while waiting for my car to be serviced.  While there, I was eyeing some of the new cars in the dealership and almost for a minute thinking about some of these even though my car is really new and was gifted as you can see on my instagram from months ago.  Anyway my point is, we have to realize that there will always be newer, nicer and we cannot always keep chasing after that.  We really just have to stop sometimes and appreciate what we have.

Anyway about this look, I paired the matching knit set with fun sleeves with a nude bag, nude heels for a more dressy look but added the plum loafers and a plum bag to dress the look down.  I can't get enough of 2 piece-sets because they are easy to throw together, what about you? thanks for viewing!

Striped Sweater dress!











Hello and happy new year! Any new year resolutions? I am trying not to think I have any but I would have to be more physically active this year and not just for weight reasons but for general health, heart health and emotional health (mind) because I know exercising contributes towards all that.  I'd also just want to continue in the light of happiness which is what I almost almost say with each year. 

Exercising would also help with getting back to or close to my pre- baby weight and stomach.  This dress having the black band in the midsection conceals that area slightly which is why I liked it even though it's a bodycon fit and the fabric is just thick enough for warmth and comfort.  I paired it with the Jessica sock booties (comes in other colors) gifted to me by shoedazzle which I love too and I think that maybe because the heel is a chunky heel, it is comfortable as far a high heeled  bootie can be.  I added the bag to tie the colors all together.  Hope you like, and thanks for visiting!
