ON THE ROAD AGAIN

Just dropping in to share a few photos from this past Sunday. Charlie and always take a few pics on this deserted road when we go home to visit his family. Father’s Day was pretty chill. We ate Charlie’s mom and step dad and went to church too. Good food and good vibes, what more could a girl want. I’ll be hanging with my dad this weekend since we spent last weekend with Charlie’s dad. I’m thinking about cooking him a big seafood dinner, but we’ll see. #tobecontinued

Lipgloss is Central Perk by OuiFresh. This is one of my fav colors. It’s a neutral and their lipglosses are ultra moisturizing! Get up on this, you won’t regret it.

Jumpsuit by New York and Company. I just LOVE their jumpsuits. They fit me so well.

Anywho, I’ll be back with some dope content soon so keep your eyes peeled.

Till next time.

Sincerely,

FARMERS AND FRIENDS

Just when I thought grocery shopping was boring, here comes Charles kid cousin and my favorite hairstylist to lighten the mood. This weekend was a whole mood, chilling in Raleigh, shopping the city malls and going on the hunt for green tomatoes with these pretty ladies was my Sunday in nutshell. One of my favorite things to do in Raleigh is shop at the farmers market. The food is always fresh, they have the best homemade jelly and I love the overall chill vibe. Prices on the food is not half bad either. One more thing, visiting the farmers market is an opportunity support local. What more could a girl ask for? By the way, we found the green tomatoes after much searching. We were looking for them because Charles kid cousin, Niya had a craving. She’s staying with us for the summer while she’s in summer school in Durham and what kid cuzzo wants, kid cuzzo gets. Isn’t she the cutest? 🙂

Anyway, the cute curly girl with the hippie romper on is none other than my good friend and hairstylist Jamika. We partnered together on some photo projects to get her brand out there. She’s an up and coming hairstylist in Raleigh, new to the area and seeking out new clientele. If you’re interested in booking one of her fab services, you can check her out: https://allaboutflair.com. She specializes in color, cuts, natural hair, weaves and clip-ins. Well, basically she does it all, and for a reasonable price. Long story short, my hairstylist bailed on me a few days before I competed in my regional pageant. I know, it sucked. Thankfully, an amazing blogger connect recommended Jamika for a walk-in service and bam, the rest is history.

Anyway, I’m going stop yammering and let you check out the dope pics from our Raleigh Farmer’s Market adventures. Enjoy.

HOLIDAY TRAVEL AND POLKA DOT VIBES

And just like that, Christmas is over and I’m not ashamed to say that I’m happy about it. As much I love hanging with family and friends and having some down time it’s also the perfect opportunity to over eat and subject myself to awful unnecessary shopping. I literally have one more gift to buy for a friend and that is the end of visiting these crazy over crowded shopping centers for a while. Don’t get me wrong, I love the holidays, but I also love to see it go so people can start acting normal again and stop bombarding the store lines. God I love a short store line, LOL. I also love online shopping too, 😂 but for some reason I always talk myself into going into a mall or shopping center during the holiday for some crazy reason. I guess it’s because my mom, baby sis and I are avid shoppers and love the rush we get from finding a good deal I suppose. In any case, more than anything, I loved hanging with my family and my in-laws. Charles and I have been so crazy busy this year that trips to see them have been far, few and in-between, so to be able to spend time with them was truly a blessing.

On the way to grandma and grandpa’s house we ran into the most decorative house in Monroe and I just had to stop and get a few pics for the blog. I know nothing about this house and can’t for the life of me remember the name of it so, if you’re native to Monroe, NC and have any clue, drop the name of this house in the comment box because it’s driving me nuts that I don’t remember; I think it starts with  the letter “B” but again, I have no earthly idea, grrr. Easy my suffering and help an ole girl figure this thing out, LOL.

Keep a scrolling good peoples and check out all the pics of this stellar property…

Needless to say, the only thing I could think of was how long it would take to take down all the holiday decor from this property. This is also pretty much what I think about when I get make-up caked all over my face for pageant stuff, LOL, for those wondering why most of my post consist of either a little make-up or none at all. FYI, I have nothing on in these pics #sorrynotsorry, I’m on vacay and just using my energy towards enjoying the fam and friends. I promise I’ll get my life together before pageant day #scouts-honor. Anyway, I’ll be posting a few more outfits from this month and ending the year of 2018 blogpost with one New Year’s look for ya so stay tuned. What a year this has been. Can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store. We do know first things first, our trip to Hawaii, can’t wait to post content about this!

Till next time!
