DIY & Beauty Corner

Hi Lovelies!!

Today I'm featuring a few items I've been having fun with. I really really love working on DIY projects. It's somewhat therapeutic for me when I work on these fun items. I think I had to remind myself that I'm doing it for fun and its ok if I mess up, granted that I don't test it out on anything pricey around the house- had to learn that the hard way...ahem! Anywho, here's an idea to revamp your lamp shade for close to nothing.

I stopped by Michaels Arts & Craft and loaded up on supplies. This cost me no more than $10. You'll also need painters tape to section off the areas.





I also had a beauty day at Sephora and got this adorable Hello Kitty palette. It's really a great product and surprised me because I thought it would be juvenile. I was so wrong, it's a quality item.

Sweets & Fitness

Hey Loves!

Hope all of you are doing super well!

It's literally like 9 degrees and the high is supposed to be 15 degrees!! Yikes!! This is our first draft of frigid cold temps up here in NJ/NY for awhile now so everyone is bundled up and braving the cold. I've been working out consistently again and eating healthier options. To my advantage a Trader Joes opened in my area so I'm so excited about that. Plus, I've been taking Raspberry Ketones to help digest meals easier (go to the 'throne' after almost every meal)

I'm a huge cupcake/pancake fan so I do treat myself every other weekend, that just works for me. I like the moderation approach. ;) Hubs and I went to Toast restaurant for Sunday brunch in Upper Montclair and I read on Yelp that they make the bomb Red Velvet pancakes, so yours truly had to test their accuracy.

Do I have anybody who has a sweet tooth? How do you stay fit and still enjoy your fab treats once in awhile? Advice is welcome!

Playing w/ Textures!

So I decided to play with animal prints and faux fur and a leopard silk blouse. I love that fashion has no rules! What are a few of your animal inspired pieces of the season?

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

I hope you had a lovely holiday, Christmas & New Years with awesome memories for years to come. This year my hubs and I stayed home for Christmas and went to church to ring in the New Year. My mother in-law came over and cooked us authentic Jamaican dishes. It was great and more fun bonding with her in the kitchen and in our 1st home.

My mom asked me today what was my New Year's resolution and I told her I didn't have one. She looked at me with a blank stare like I had 'loser' written on my forehead. I know that New Years' resolutions can be productive because you're setting goals and making improvements. I just never thought about mine for 2013.

Am I the only who hasn't created these famous resolutions? What do you think about New Years' Resolutions?


All I know is that this year is the greatest year I'll experience in my life by far. I'm so full of faith!
