Fuzzy Wuzzy

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.

Audrey always Inspires

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” – Audrey Hepburn

Summer Lovin’ Photo Shoot

Although it is the start of my favorite fashion season, Fall, I still am missing summer time! I decided to share a fun photo shoot I did this summer in Brooklyn, NY. The set was in DUMBO, which is an area of Brooklyn overlooking Manhattan. The beautiful bridge is right behind me and I had an amazing time soaking up the sun, the views, and most importantly the summer time! You will be missed, summer ❤

I kept my outfit flirty and fun to go with my mood of the day. H&M neon green tank tucked into my favorite mid-waisted shorts from Forever21! (such a great find) I accessorized with  colorful bangles I got from the boutique store, Steps, in NYC and bright cobalt blue nails. (Love this color, easily adds a pop of color to any outfit) Also, a gifted handmade necklace from Ghana and my mirrored blue sunnies.

SoHo Event with Aimee Song at Piperlime

Last night I attended an event at the Piperlime SoHo Pop UP store featuring “Song of Style” blogger and fashionista, Aimee Song. (www.songofstyle.com). The event was really fun and unique! I had a great time mingling with PopSugar and other fab ladies at the event. Aimee was super friendly and chatted with everyone.

Also, they had the cutest little treats for us to nibble on while we were shopping/mingling. A churro (fried dough sprinkled with sugar and cinnamin) hanging from an umbrella! Strawberry, rhubarb popsicles and rosemary flavored ice-cream sandwiches were just some of my faves from this Piperlime Event in SoHo. Oh, cannot forget the oyster cart with fresh oysters ready to be served. My blogger friend, MDoll, loved that part! Check her out on http://www.mdollnyc.com

I kept my outfit fun and chic- pairing my favorite American Apparel striped top with my neon pink trousers from H&M. Love the stripe simplicity with a bright, pop color! Accessories I kept simple with simple studs and two yellow bangles. Of course, my neon jelly’s were on my feet, keeping me comfy and pulled the look together!

Happy May!

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.

March Forward into Spring

I always like to start off the month with a motivational reminder to embrace the new month–although I am a bit late on this month, I’m still spreading the love! So, Happy March beautiful readers! Spring begins in less than week and I could not be more excited. I love the spring time, it’s such a nice transition into Summer days. The fashion is amaze! The bright colors and floral prints are on every blazer/pant/skirt/romper/etc! It’s the month full of vibrant energy and excitement. This month I am looking forward to more sunshine, flowers blooming, city adventures, shopping for spring, and most importantly growth! I wish all my naturalista fashionistas a wonderful and joyous month! spring

My day in Philly Wonderland

Traveling to new sites and seeing new places is one of my passions in life. Whether it’s a new city/country/state/ anything!! A couple of weeks ago I went on a road trip with close friends of mine to Philly- first time ever!! YES! I was so excited, road trips are the best especially with good people and great music 🙂 Unfortunately, we did not have much time to explore (def. going back soon!!) but we did go to the Philadelphia Magic Gardens and I fell in love! Art is a huge passion of mine and this place was just amazing!! It was right on South Street, which is the tourist-y area of Philly but still a lot of fun. If you ever are in this area- go visit!

“Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens (PMG) is a mosaicked visionary art environment, gallery, and community arts center that preserves, interprets, and provides access to Isaiah Zagar’s unique mosaic art environment and his public murals. The Magic Gardens site, Zagar’s largest artwork, includes a fully tiled indoor space and a massive outdoor mosaic sculpture garden that spans half a block on Philadelphia’s famous South Street. Inside, visitors can view folk art statues, bicycle wheels, colorful glass bottles, Zagar’s hand-made tiles, and thousands of glittering mirrors. The installation pays tribute to Zagar’s artistic influences, along with community and personal experiences.”

Hello October

Welcome October. Welcome the season change and the bright, fall colors. The new, sleek looks from the hair color change to the booties on our feet. Inspiration is everywhere around us in this month, leading us to everything that fall has to offer. This season I want to do more. New York City is absolutely beautiful with the leaves changing. On my list will be apple/pumpkin picking, Central Park picnics, boating, Brooklyn adventures, lots and lots of fall shopping, and trying anything pumpkin spiced! I’m embracing this new season with a new mindset and am constantly evolving. It’s newness that restores our soul and lifts us up. No matter what has brought you down, this season is here to bring us back up. Keep that in mind and our wings will soar. Happy October and welcome newness, Naturalista’s!

February Passion

Although it’s not the FIRST day of February it’s the beginning of the month, the BEST month! Besides my Birthday month I feel like February is always full of passion and love. On Valentine’s Day we celebrate the love in our lives, whether it’s one person or a bunch of friends 🙂 it’s all love. Also, February is Black History Month where we can commemorate African-American culture and history. Another fun fact– Hershey’s chocolate was founded in 1894 on February 9th! Yessss, for all my chocolate lovers out there – where would we be without this month?! 🙂 🙂
