The Plant Life

 A couple of weeks ago I lucked out and was invited by eShatki to utilize their custom designing service.  At eShakti, you can have garments customized to your specific size with your selection of neckline, sleeve, and length. So after hours of browsing the site, I decided on the floral print wide leg jumpsuit. I customized the look by adding 3/4 inch sleeves and extended the length of the pants.  

For this look I had the opportunity to shoot at my favorite place, The Plant Gallery. I often spend my Saturday mornings shopping at TPG for house plants and home decor. I was also able to get some great shots of the nursery! Enjoy :)

#BlackGirlMagic

I've been spending the last couple of weekends decorating my little cottage. I wanted to share a little of what I've done as well as a selfie or two :)

I love these  ankle length pants from Sammy Dress! I would recommend sizing 2 to 3 sizes up! Yes! You heard correct! It is an Asian based company, therefore clothing runs very small! I typically a size 2x, us 18/20 but had to go 3 sizes up to a 5xl.

#MyWhoWhatWear

If you're like me you are probably shopping at Target at least once or twice a week. If not, I'm sure after reading this post you will be making frequent visits. Why?  Who What Wear, the one-stop style resource has a collection available exclusively at Target and let me just say I'm in love! With sizes ranging up to a 4x, what's not to love! You don't come across many fashionable brands that cater to both the straight & plus size figures. Also did mention that there will be new product dropping every month?! 

I was given the opportunity to pick a garment from the Who What Wear collection and opted for this stripe shirt dress. It is still fairly warm in New Orleans so I wanted a garment that I could easily transition from summer to fall.

Jumper Style Tips Everyone Can Use

It is crazy to think that it is October already. This year has gone fast, it seems like only yesterday I was shopping for summer dresses and shoes. Now here I am thinking about shopping for the fall.
There is a definite chill in the air, which means top of the list for my next shopping trip is a great looking jumper, probably two. For the past few years, the choice of knitwear that has been available in the stores has been limited, but for 2016, it is clear that jumpers are back in vogue. There are loads to choose from, which is great, but also means you could potentially spend ages trying them on and inadvertently building a jumper mountain on the changing room floor.
To help you to avoid this I have put together some jumper style tips. The idea of this post is to allow you to narrow down your options quickly, so that you do not end up wasting your precious shopping time.

Yoni Wellness with Gemstone Yoni Eggs

When I come across a product I believe in I feel the need to share it with my readers with hopes of  the product benefiting you in some way.  I had the opportunity to review yoni eggs from Gemstone Yoni Eggs.  I feel the best way to start this review is to give a little history on the yoni egg and its purpose. So let's  get into it! 



So, what are Yoni Eggs??
Gemstone Yoni Eggs are polished semi-precious gemstones carved into the shape of an egg. They are inserted into the vagina during kegel exercises to help strengthen the vaginal muscles, revitalize one's intimate space, and tone the entire pelvic floor, returning the vagina back to its youthful state. In addition, yoni eggs are used internally during meditation to help women connect to their womb space, their sacred feminine energy. 


When asked to choose the gems for my yoni eggs I was a bit lost but Stephanie, Gemstone Yoni Egg's owner, sent me a link to their Metaphysical guide to assists with picking the right stone. 

After reviewing the guide I decided on getting the Amethyst, Blue Quartz, and Fancy Jasper. Unfortunately, the Amethyst is a very popular choice and was out of stock, so I went ahead and requested the Black Obsidian egg. 


Overall, my experience with Gemstoneyonieggs.com was a great one! They also carry breast massage stones (which I will be ordering soon), ben wa balls, facial massage stones, and wands! The shipping was incredibly fast and customer service was on point!

Selfie Chronicles: Havana White

It's Memorial Day weekend, which in New Orleans means  tables overflowing with boiled crawfish  and of course pool parties! For the first pool party of the weekend, I pulled out this beauty courtesy of MonifC. This is my first MonifC swimsuit and I have to say it's one of the best swimsuits I own. The fit is perfect and I love that the back of the suit is enclosed for a smooth look.  I love it so much I've decided to host a giveaway on my Instagram account so one of you lucky readers can win one of your own!! Click here and follow the 3 steps to enter.  Good Luck!!

70's Flare

Lately, my style has been leaning more towards the 70's era, which of course is not a bad thing. I love everything about the 70's from the fashion to the music. I went so far as to ordering these huge vintage 70's frames to add my prescription to for everyday use (If you're going to do it, you gotta do it big). So when I came across this jumpsuit from Simply Be I had to own it. It has been less than a month and I've worn this jumpsuit 3 times. Yup! .I'm obsessed!
