Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas

Oh My GAD!!! Halloween is right around the corner and if you're like me life happened and you've ran out of time and you're fiddling around to put together some last minute costumes. Don't worry I have three outfit ideas that should help you out.  If you guys never heard of Adore Me, they are a subscription lingerie online store with very nice undies.  I have purchased with my very own money from them before, so yes I recommend them.  Halloween is always the perfect time to wear nice lingerie because you can always find creative ways to show it off, isn't that what Halloween is about? I think so.

We can be the Generation to End Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is not a joke, it's a very serious thing and it's not just women who get breast cancer men get it too. October is breast cancer awareness month and I think it's important that everyone does their part to stay aware and spread awareness.  Breast cancer research is extremely important when Beach House Swim, reached out to me to spread the word about their collection, aimed at helping to raise money for the cause of course I said yes.  They have teamed up with Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), to help. They have designed a couple special bathing suits for women of all ages and sizes, in which part proceeds will go towards this very important cause.

Improve your health with Matcha Green Tea Powder

Today I want to talk about a company called Enzo, which was started by a coffee addict, not only are they making great products thats good for your mind and body. Enzo is also giving back to the community with their "Pay It Forward" program.  I remember the first time I had green tea, I was fourteen and a family friend who had been vegan for twenty five years introduced me to these magical leaves.  Since then I have been a fluent green tea drinker.

Get your skin ready for Autumn with Saison

Tomorrow will be the official start of Autumn and for those of us who live in places where the weather changes drastically, we know too well what that means for our skin care routine. It means whatever you were doing in the summer probably won't work in another month or so. I received some pretty amazing products from a company called Saison, the word Saison is French for season which is exactly how this company organizes their skin care line.  A collection of organic products specially formulate for all four seasons.

Zakia's Morocco Beauty product Review & Giveaway!!!

Hello my love bunnies ok, so let me jump right in I received this product and was extremely skeptical because of the texture of it. Its like nothing I've ever seen before, its Moroccan Black soap with Argan oil. It comes in a jar and texture is very unique the company has described it as a rich butter texture that is slippery to the touch, which I would agree with.

Eight Things I've learnt Since Ive started my hair Transition journey

Photo Courtesy of Tumblr

I've had my hair relaxed or chemically processed basically my whole life, the very first time my mom brought me to get my hair processed I was so young I had to sit on cushions so the hairdresser could reach me. For years I continued to process my hair, not really thinking about it just going along with it because thats all I knew.  Last September I made the decision to go back to my natural texture, I had been thinking about it for about three months, I have been doing it so far with the help of sew ins since I have decided I'm not doing the big chop and Im letting it grow out instead. Here are a couple of things I've learnt along the way:

Big Hair and High Heels

I've been wearing my hair VERY BIG and I love it!! I get so many stares and too many people coming up to me saying I love your hair.  I wasn't sure if I liked it at first but after about three days I was all about it. I got these sexy shoes from AMI Clubwear and I never  thought I would be  able ro pull them off with a casual everyday look, but I did.

Black and White Statements

 Did I tell you guys how much I am obsessed with all things black and white, when in doubt I put these colors on and I feel alive.  I tried two different shoes on with this look I loved them both, my cross body/Clutch purse is my statement peace here, it has literally added that "Pop" effect to my outfit. Sometimes all you really need is a simple sweater top and a pair of leather pants, throw on some red lipstick and boom - FABULOUS!

Flannel and Leather.

Happy St. Patricks day to whom it may concern.  I've become a bit obsessed with flannel shirts and all things leather like.  I was never into leather I always found it hard to wear, but about a month ago I just woke up one morning and decided yes lets do leather.  Even though I'm a bit late jumping on this leather wagon, just expect to see me using it from time to time.

Change your Life, come with me on this Journey.

Good morning everyone, or whatever time it might be when you're reading this, I want to start by saying if you're currently in a hard place I know we've all been there.  You all know that Barnes & Noble is one of my favorite places in the world, anywhere with an abundance of books and different opinions sets my soul on fire.  I can live without many things but I cannot live without a good book.  I own over a 100 different Ibooks, several books on Nook and I can't even count just how many actual books I own and how many I have loaned out or given away, I love books!!  On several different occasions I went into Barnes and Noble and picked up Diane Von Furstenberg's new book and put it back down, I finally decided to buy it.

Leopard and Denim Fabulousness

A bad hair day is absolutely something nobody has time for, nobody ever in the history of anybody. I have a collection of trendy scarves but this one is my favorite, whenever I wear it I feel like a trendy African Queen and what better way to be a African Queen than to top it with some orange lipstick.

Oscar Fashion Picks 2015

Oprah Winfrey In Vera Wang 
Award Season is in full swing and tonight it's all about The Oscars, I was back and forth between E and ABC for coverage. Though I couldn't quite understand why Khloe was on that panel she wears nice clothes but I wouldn't say she understands fashion to be a commentator, I didn't agree with some of the comments she made.  But I mean thats life right lol. I noticed the trend on the red carpet tonight was a lot of embellishments and flowy dresses and ponytails.

Yes for Casual Days

I think Tuesday is one of the most awkward days of the week, but it's a day none the less and we all have to make the best of it. It's officially a snow day where I am a little later I'm going sledding in my backyard.  Most Fashion bloggers make it seem like we dress up everyday like all we do is attend glamorous events, well probably they do but I don't.

57th GRAMMYs - Red Carpet Review (Najeary Bennett)

The most anticipated event for some of our favorite recording artists, record labels, music lovers and fans all over the word, along with the critics finally came - The 57th Annual Grammy Awards held in Los Angeles last night. We all know events like The Grammys is definitely fun to watch while staying in tuned with Twitter, so as a ritual I logged into my account 30min before the Red Carpet event started. 

E annual Red Carpet segment is a must watch for fashion enthusiasts and even mere fans. This is major and whether you are 'into fashion' or not, you will be scrutinized and honey, we will have so many memes, gifs and endless funny tweets to revisit after the event if you ever look a mess. 

I really had to pray for Giuliana Ransic from "Fashion Police" oh the irony - yes my friend, twitter sure had a fun day with her outfit. Can't say I am shocked, I was never a fan of her personal style. Now this might sound a little bitter (sorry not sorry) but, I honestly don't think Guiliana should to be a fashion critic; no sense of style and that's just my opinion. I will be nice to add nonetheless that I am happy for her being a breast cancer survivor *cues Destiny's Child song* but, I think its time for her to get a bucket of chicken and hire a personal stylist  - a very honest one at that.

The entire show seemed to have been all over the place, and as much as I do understand that music has many different genres I really don't think the show had a theme or was even properly segmented. I personally thought we could have been speared a few of those performances.

While I really can't say I was 'slayed' by any particular Red Carpet look, I must say there were a few looks that had us talking on twitter.

In no particualar order, here are some of the most talked about Red Carpet looks at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.

Yours truly,
