VLOG City Life- Ready For Fall and Fitness

Hi loves! Its been a minute since I did a "City Life" update. Well, this was my first full summer here in South Tampa. Last year, I was in New York for half of July. July is when things really get interesting around here because of the storms. In the last month it literally has rained 30 days straight. It was flooded so badly I saw cars with water up to their windows and roads were completely closed. I have learned that this area is not that great when it comes to drainage the hard way. Because I was here most of the summer I had the joy of being high up in my condo watching lightning and rain the last month which was quite cool.
After I returned from Naples, I vowed to loose this last 6 pounds and get back to what to me is my ideal weight. I have been struggling with it all year since I got glutened in February. In March I was able to loose 7 and then every month after that it seems like I was out of town eating take out. I hope in September I will have met this goal 10 po…

Weekend Style Report: Kimono + Jeans + V-Neck Top

Hi loves! Happy Sunday! Today I was feeling a bit under the weather so I stayed in most of the day.  I did have to make a trip to the grocery store since a storm is coming tomorrow.  I decided to wear this casual outfit (sans the heels) to run my errands. I actually put on the wrong kimono today, but I guess that just shows how much I love this one! I have always been a fan of the print and colors that this one has. Kimonos are a great item to stock up on because they are versatile, comfortable, and they really never go out of style. I got this one about three years ago for only 10$

Dark & Lovely OOTN

Happy Friday loves! Today was yet another rainy day and I decided to sport this cotton pea coat. The temperature was perfect (88 degrees and overcast) and I was feeling like I am so ready for fall! I just went with it and wanted to do a dark smokey look. I love wearing my darker lipsticks during the fall and winter and I although I know that fall is actually three weeks away, I think I am checking out on summer.
Tonight was a date night and I was so ready! This whole month I have been working out and eating right and just on my grind! I was so happy to go out! I hope you all are enjoying your Friday!
PS I will film this look next month! My hair is still in the same style as a week ago, it rained here and I re-rolled it. I used my go to method though and I plan on making a video for this also next month.

As I try the products I will update this blog post with reviews!

So far I have not used the curls unleashed samples and I most likely will not because they contain gluten. 
The cantu curling cream was pretty great. I used it in my Deep Waves tutorial earlier this month along with the Cantu spray and my hair did not flake and it lasted several weeks.
Today, I used the Beautiful Textures Tangle Taming leave in conditioner and it smells amazing! It also is great for detangling wet hair. After using this product two weeks ago my hair is still soft  and moisturized. I usually do not use products that contain Dimethicone unless it is a small amount like this one. I have not experienced any scalp irritation f…

All Class And No Sass: Palazzo Pants + Silk Button Up

Happy Sunday loves! Today, I am wearing a blouse that I bought to wear to my bridal shower 9 years ago as well as some cute wide leg pants. I didn't have anything specific planned today so I decided to wear pants instead of a dress or skirt. I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend! XOXO
