Fall In Marley Lilly

Hello Fashionistas!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I certainly did. I'm so grateful for family and being together to share so many joyful memories. It has been a while since I've shared with you all and it's not because I haven't wanted to, however, so much has gone on this past year, from illness to moving and everything in between. I'm not complaining though, it's all apart of life. So, needless to say, I was very thankful this past Thanksgiving to be able to celebrate with my hubster and our immediate family. 

Also, thankful for this gorgeous Marley Lilly monogrammed necklace. About a year ago I was first introduced to Marley Lilly and shared with you guys the varied personalized and monogrammed products they have to offer. This necklace is a monogrammed classic split chain in gold (Even though it looks like silver in the above pic). You can get this necklace in silver or gold and they are reasonably priced in time for the holidays. While perusing the website, I noticed they also have available monogrammed state name plates so you can represent where you're from. And, that's not all, get a FREE blanket scarf if you spend $100 - ends in a couple hours. Christmas is almost here, I guarantee you will find something for everyone on your list.
Happy shopping!

Springtime Giveaway w/ Firmoo

Hello Fashionistas! 
How have you been enjoying your weekend (which is coming to a close as I type this blog post)? Seen any great movies? I saw Insurgent the other night and it was definitely worth seeing. I won't give anything away but I will say, Shailene Woodley is one tough chica. After watching the first movie, Divergent, I left the movie theater wondering, what faction would I belong to? In reality, I would desire to be like "Four" and encompass a little bit of each characteristics of the five factions. What faction would you belong to?

Now that it's Springtime, I wanted to kick things off with a giveaway from Firmoo. Now, you've seen many blog posts from me regarding Firmoo...I just love this company and their motto: "Vision and Fashion the frugal way". Visit this link, Collection For Bloggers, to choose the glasses of your choice. Leave me a comment or email with your choice. They have tons to choose from, but here are some of my favorites:

Choose me!


This is purr-rific!

The giveaway ends March 31st and the winner will be contacted April 1st with the winning code to redeem the glasses of their choice.
They also have a winter clearance sale going on now, up to 85% off. No code required. 

Let's stay social:

Superbowl Attire (III)

Superbowl Attire (III)

Hello Fashionistas!
It's that time AGAIN!!! Superbowl XLIX is today. The frenzy and excitement for the big game is in the air. Now, I'm not a big fan of football, but I'm a huge fan of fashion. It's interesting to see how women dress for the big game. Some wear their significant others' gear - whether it's an old sweatshirt, t-shirt or hat - we try to be team players as much as possible. Other women want to look cute, so they wear what they like regardless of representing a particular team.

Who are you rooting for? The Patriots or Seahawks? Or, how about, which colors would you rather... be caught wearing that is?

Check out my post from last year (here). The Seahawks made it to the Super Bowl another year.

Guys, take note...(III)

Guys, take note...(III)


Hello Fashionistas!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Still recovering from all the turkey I ate. Just kidding! But seriously, it was great seeing family and spending quality time together. Very proud of myself for completing this Christmas gift guide early in the month. If you've been following my blog since I started in 2012, you know that these gift guides are usually geared towards the guys (see here) and (here). The reason for this is, I think I have a pretty good idea of what women want, especially if it's something trending or in fashion, however, their guys' may not have a clue. Hence, these posts titled: Guys, take note... so women can leave these posts on their computers or mobile screens so their significant others can stumble upon it and get a clue as to what it is you want for a Christmas gift. Do you ladies agree with my list? If not, what would you like for Christmas?

Marley Lilly Monogrammed Me

Hello Fashionistas! 
It's Fri-yay! Any big plans for the weekend? Who's going to see The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, part 1

Today I want to introduce you to a fabulous online company that provides monogrammed personalization for products and gifts; that company is Marley Lilly. They recently sent me a bracelet and a cross-body bag/clutch to review. Before I tell you about the products, I have to say, the items were so well packed - bubble wrap, paper and monogrammed packaging - I was really impressed. Now on to the products. The monogrammed tassel bracelet I received, measures around 7 inches with an adjustable chain and pendant. My initials were engraved on the pendant and the Marley Lilly Logo was also attached. The bracelet has a really nice gold-plated finish and the tassel gives it a bit of swag. They do have tassels in several different colors and bracelets in a silver finish.This is a bracelet I will treasure forever for the personalization and I think this will be a timeless piece of jewelry. The monogrammed Luxe cross-body bag, which can also be worn as a clutch, is perfect for date-night. It has just enough room inside for your phone, wallet and your lipstick to freshen up after dinner. The chain can be removed to become a stylish clutch. Inside there is a snap closure to prevent your contents from spilling out. Each bag has a different color trim which is not very obvious but it's all in the details. Overall, I'm very pleased with both items and you'll be seeing them on the blog often. I highly recommend that you check out Marley Lilly for affordable personalized gift ideas for the holidays, which is right around the corner. They have a variety of items to choose from, such as: jewelry, accessories, footwear, clothing and so much more.

Date Night with Jeremy Tarian

Hello Fashionistas!
 It's Fri-yay! So happy the weekend is here, and to celebrate, the hubster and I went to dinner and a movie. Have you guys seen Beyond The Lights starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Nate Parker? I've been anticipating the release date of this movie since I saw the first preview; and it hasn't helped any that Wendy Williams has been showing teasers all week on her show. The movie is about the pressures of fame, two people falling in love and learning to be courageous. This is a must-see! Let me know what you think after you've seen it.

This LBD (which didn't start out that way) from Ann Taylor Loft, is a great piece to wear to the office or a business function. However, I wanted to alter it a tad bit and change it into a date night dress. Originally, the dress reaches right above the knee. After cinching at the waist using this belt from The Limited, I gathered some of the material over the belt to create what you see now. I love a black-on-black outfit, sprinkled with a few colorful accessories. The accessories were chosen to compliment the shade of my Jeremy Tarian sunglasses.  

Reading my Special Edition Lucky magazine for this Fall/Winter


Sunglasses: Jeremy Tarian (Thanks to Eye See Euphoria)
