Work Attire And Fall 2016 Fashion Trends

Hey! I'm back! It's been forever since I've done a blog post but I was feeling this outfit. :-)

I don't really blog about fashion or style or really anything for a long time now but this Fall 2016 has some trends that I'm kinda liking; embellished hats, Adidas, Converse, baseball caps, hats in general, and sweatshirts. My job requires me to always be super comfy. I can't always wear skirts and especially not heels. Always pants, sneakers, boots or some type of flats as I have to be very active and things can get a little crazy sometimes so I have to be ready for anything. It's really easy for me to get caught up in dressing frumpy so I try my best to pay attention to the way I look even though I'm in a very, very casual environment. I do have those days when I've had about 3 hours sleep and I just CAN NOT so I throw anything on and bounce so I won't be late for work. Overall though, I like that I can wear almost anything as long as I'm covered. It's really easy on my bank account as I can wear what I already have and I can still throw my personal style in. One thing I don't do everyday is wear makeup but I do have to look kinda cute. You tend to feel better about yourself when you pay attention to how you look.

Hey Lovelies! So I wanted to talk you about this BEAUTIFUL handmade jewelry from The Pink Locket is a Caribbean owned handmade jewelry company that also has a monthly jewelry subscription service. I received the earrings and bangles for the July and August subscription boxes for review and guys, they're so pretty! I absolutely love them. They are minimal and stylish and you can wear them with almost anything. I've been giving them a serious test run like above when I went to dinner with the bangles. The great thing about the bangles is that they are flexible so I can squeeze them around my extra skinny wrists. As for the earrings, I love the shell shape and the texture. I can rock them with any hair style.

13 Things To Do When You're Snowed In

As the entire country knows by now, the East Coast is being pummeled by #SNOWPOCALYPSE2015. It's a white, blustery, windy, frigid, blasted mess out there. New Yorkers are stranded all over the place because Mayor DeBlasio closed the subways & put an 11pm curfew on drivers so that the streets can be plowed. People sleeping at work &/or huddled up inside bodegas. Others are buying enough food to last through Spring & Home Depot can't keep enough rock salt in stock. Schools & some workplaces are even shut down for tomorrow. And most devastating of all, Facebook & Instagram went down & all through Twitterland everyone was in an absolute meltdown panic. No wonder my Facebook post about doing this blog post wouldn't load. hmph  But what if Facebook, Twitter & Instagram really disappeared though? Scary.......

So what's a girl to do when she's all snowed in? Well here's what I did. I'm sure pretty much everyone did variations of these but in case you didn't here are some ways to pass the time.

1.) Watch Netflix - I recommend Marco Polo & Peaky Blinders.

2.) Eat donuts - Or some other junk food that isn't good for you. I left my jelly donut in the microwave too long. Who knew 30 seconds was too long for a jelly donut? Damn near all my jelly came out.

3.) Drink Alcohol - This is a no brainer. Wine, rum, vodka, tequila.......

4.) Sit by the window & watch the snow fall. Maybe take some pictures. Some dude got arrested at the store across the street. Took 4 police cars for ONE dude.

5.) Watch Youtube - I caught up on:  


Trace Ellis Ross


6.) Watch people shovel snow - Shout out to the home & car owners. I just know my mom is gonna make me shovel her car out of the damn snow.

7.) Use social media - Play on Twitter since Facebook & Instagram are down for the night. Keep refreshing to see if they are back up. UPDATE: They were back up around 2:10am

8.) Watch TV - I caught up on the snow news

Testing out my new wig
9.) Take random selfies

10.) Cook

11.) Write a blog post - Like I'm doing now.

12.) Listen to the sounds of the wind and snow plows dragging through the street. You just know that as soon as they leave the snow will pile back up.

13.) Take a nap - The main reason why I'm up writing a blog post.

14.) Listen to music - 50's Rock n' Roll was my music of choice. La Bamba is my fave 50's song. Pandora is wonderful.

Sometimes I just wanna leave New York & move to Cali. The prospect of rolling out of bed & throwing on shorts to run errands is enticing.

So what are you doing to pass the time?

Do you have to go to work?

Parents. What plans have you made for your kids since
