If you’re living on the East Coast, you know that winter is still very present. I’ve learned over the years to try and make friends with this horrible cold and dress more appropriately. Luckily, there are some cute trends out this F/W that are inspiring to me. My favorite trend that works with my personal style is the “fuzzy” sweater. Besides the warmth, the fuzzy look gives it a very cozy and angel- like feeling. I’ve seen these sweaters all over the place but the ones below are some of my personal favorites. So, this winter you can stay fashionable and warm. 🙂
Ciara looking lovely in pink 🙂 Personally, I like these types of sweaters in more pastel colors or even just a white. It adds a more innocent look to it.
Let’s not forget the orginial…!
In honor of National Bikini Day I thought it would be fun to look back in time at the time-less, vintage bikini’s. On July 5, 1946 the first two piece bathing suit was named and born into the world! How cool! I love learning about interesting facts like those. The story behind the bikini is super cool too. Louis Réard, a former automotive engineer and designer of the bikini, was working one day in his mother’s lingerie shop and got inspired to create this bathing suit. This took place, of course, in Paris, France. The name “bikini” came from the atomic bomb that US dropped in the Pacific Ocean at a place called Bikini Atoll. Kind of a strange way to come up with a name, but hey it fits! Since July 5, 1946 this bikini has made an appearance in all sorts of trends/ways.
I love mixing and matching my suits, there are some many options on how to rock your bombshell bod. Take a look at some of my favorite iconic bikini’s from the past and a few of myself in some vintage inspired looks! 🙂

As the sun is shining my hopes are rising. This month I am welcoming a lot of growth, excitement, and peace into my life. Every month I like to set new goals. For the month of May I am trying to develop a healthier lifestyle with more juices into my daily diet and no more junk food! Also, going to the gym at least 3-4 times a week. Taking only one hour out of your day to work out can make a huge difference in your mind, body, and health! Along with these two goals, I will be revealing something new to my naturalista fashionista’s very soon! I am excited about it and I hope you will be too! So, stay tuned and have a FAB month of MAY 🙂
Remember, April showers bring May flowers so whatever got you down in the month of April will only uplift you to smell the flowers in the month of May.
I was completely fascinated to see Michelle Obama on the cover of this month’s Vogue Issue. An inspiration to many women, she is graceful in her presence always. I love to see powerful women on magazine covers and think it is important to highlight them for our youth. After all, these magazines truly shape a lot of women’s perceptions about themselves. So this month I appreciate VOGUE and their beautiful cover and wanted to share some of the fab interview with you.
On the importance of family: “Our job is, first and foremost, to make sure our family is whole. You know, we have small kids; they’re growing every day. But I think we were both pretty straightforward when we said, Our No. 1 priority is making sure that our family is whole.”
On her mother Marian: “My mother doesn’t do interviews but let me tell you: She is not long on pretense. She’s the first one to remind us who we are. And it’s been very helpful having her living with us. . . We can check reality against her sensibilities.”
On what she’s learned from her husband, President Barack Obama: “Well, patience and calm I’m borrowing. Or trying to mirror. I’ve learned that from my husband, that sort of, you know, ability to not get too high or too low with changes and bumps in the road. . . to do more breathing in and just going with it. I’m learning that every day. And to the extent that I’ve made changes in my life, it’s just sort of stepping back and seeing a change not as something to guard against but as a wonderful addition. . . that can make life fun and unexpected.”
I love it. 🙂 Be sure to pick up this copy and read more from this interview.
