City Life Updates: 30 Days of Vacation

Image
Hi loves! Sooooo…hubby has been on vacation all month long and I guess its kind of like a vacation for me too. We actually kicked off the month with a quick vacation to Sarasota because he has been working non stop all year long with out using his time off. We weren't sure where we even wanted to go, so we settled on a quick trip to Sarasota because we love it there. Its slow paced and sometimes we just need that; They also have a plethora of restaurants with gluten free menus.

Vacation-So having hubby home for a whole month has been great. We have been working out outside -which is something I have not done since I moved- and exploring the area. Long story short everyone over here is balling and I love looking at all their McMansions (no shade). They are beautiful. While I maintain that I never want to live in another house again, there is a house over here that looks like a mini castle. It kind of tickled my fancy.

Thanksgiving- So this year thanksgiving was at my moms house, but…

Thanksgiving GRWM: Hair, Makeup, OOTD (YouTube)

Image
Hi loves! Its been a minute since I did a GRWM (get ready with me video). I was super crunched for time yesterday since I was cooking. I have been wanting to do this makeup tutorial since July when I first bought my ELF Prism palette. I love that thing! When you apply a little water to your brush you get such highly pigmented deposit! I am planning on doing another tutorial with a dry brush so you can all see the difference. I am so loving these dark lipsticks I have been wearing this month; I don't think I will be able to put them down when spring and summer arrives.





Holiday Haute: Thanksgiving OOTD: Embellished Tunic+ Leather Like Leggings

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I was rushing so much on my makeup and hair today because it took longer cooking my stuffing than I expected. Nevertheless, I had already planned out a easy and comfortable ootd. I had a lot of fun today and this was one of my best Thanksgivings in a long time!

Natural Hair: Easy Winter Curls for Thanksgiving (YouTube)

Image
Hi guys! So I was ready to get my hair styled for Thanksgiving and I loved my twist and curl from last month so much I wanted to do it again--and film it. I filmed this at the end of last week because styles like this tend to look better on me in the later stages because it has time to drop. So right now, it has rained here several days in a row and (thank God) I have had time to touch it up before Thanksgiving. I hope you all enjoy the video. As usual I try to keep things very simple with few products. Last month this style lasted me up to 30 days.








Weekend Style Report: Organza Midi Skirt+Crop Top

Image
Isn't this skirt just amazing! I have way too many midi skirts, but I could not resist buying just one more. I love everything about this skirt. We are starting off the holiday season and this outfit screams "host a party" Its simplistic, but dressy enough for the holiday season. I personally tend to dress a little more comfortably when I am hosting or attending a Thanksgiving dinner. This look I think would be great for a more relaxed party in which you just have a few close friends over for wine and h'orderves.

Blanket Scarf+Midi Skir+Organic Cotton Skirt

Image
The blanket scarf is one of this seasons hottest trends. I was able to find this super soft scarf online while searching for something else. You guys will see this scarf multiple times from now to the end of winter. I wore this cute outfit to an outdoors music festival today at my favorite park (Tampa Waterworks Park). Normally I would be wearing this cute outfit on a Sunday, but for some reason today I just really felt like wearing a skirt.
