Hey friends!

Are you enjoying the ruffles sleeves lately? I have jumped on this trend whole heartedly and I’m enjoying every second of it. I really like that it adds dimension to your look and an extra oomph to what would have looked  like a simple dress and/or sweater. This sweater dress was truly love at first sight for me because 1. I love a good sweater dress, 2. Because of the sleeves of course!, 3. Because it has a longer midi length fit and 4. It’s a thick sweater material so it’s not see-through. I always give white dresses a chance, but a pet peeve of mine is when they are too thin and you have to be worrying about bending over and showing the world where the sun doesn’t shine. Funny, but some gals don’t seem to mind that. I do. So when I find a good white dress, it’s usually a keeper. This one in particular has been paired with heels and with OTK boots for a more casual look. Both ways are gorgeous, but this is how I wore it last. You can find this dress and a few more ruffled items at my boutique, Fancy Boutique. And don’t worry I haven’t forgotten to share more news about the boutique with you guys here, I’m just waiting on a few more items to arrive to the store so I can do a boutique tour. Thanks for the support and in the meantime follow us on IG @FancyBtq.

 Thanks for reading and stay fancy!

{ Grateful Heart }


Hey friends!

One thing that I’ve mentioned on here before and truly believe is the need to express our love and appreciation for others. God is love and he calls us to love one another and I have no problem doing that. Obviously the true test is loving those that hurt us the most and or loving those that we don’t care for, but nonetheless, we are called to love others. When i receive pretty letters, cards and love from others by snail mail, it takes me back to when I was young and used to leave little love notes for my mom in this drawer. My mom being the cutest and sweetest woman that she is used to worse me back. We used to exchange love notes, cards, little notebook papers, post it notes and anything that we could find that was cute. We used to ask each other questions thought little love notes, tell each other cute little secrets. I remember those days, memories, feeling and emotions I felt wen I used to wake up and run to the drawer to see what she wrote back like if it was yesterday. I think now a days we are all so busy, I’m so guilty of that is that we don’t say I love you enough times, don’t express our emotions enough. Have you ever thought of something nice to tell someone and get super busy and before you know it, you never told them?! That happens to me way too often! So I made an appointment this year to purchase the most beautiful thank you cards from Basic Invite and placed them on my desk all year long so that I can be constantly reminded about expressing my feelings to the people around me.

On that note, today’s post is to encourage you to say thank you more. Here are 5 people you should be sending thank you cards to:

  1. Your significant other. You have no idea how this brightens up their day! Leaving a post-it note on the refrigerator or in their lunch boss, desk and even on the door. Just lets them know you’re thinking of them.
  2. Your loved ones (significant other, sisters, brothers, mom, dad, your kids, grandparents…)
  3. The friends you do life with. The ones you call to for dinner, night out, when things get rough… You know who they are!
  4. Professional thank you cards to your boss, manager, co-workers, employees and anyone that helps you on the daily to be a better employee or #GirlBoss.
  5. PR companies that sends me items to blog about or review. These are ways to establish a friendship with them and thank them for picking you!

Thank you cards are the sweetest way to tell someone you’re thinking of them. Basic Invite has a huge selection of Thank you cards, personal stationery, photo graduation invitations , wedding invites that fits with everyone’s personality, style and they are completely customizable. Basic Invite is one of the few websites that allows customers almost unlimited color options with instant previews online. Once you select a design you can change the color of each element on the card to over 180 different color options so you can make sure the card is exactly how you want it down to the littlest detail. You also have ability to order a printed sample of the actual invitation/stationary, announcements so they can see exactly how it will print as well as the paper quality before they ever have to place their final order.

{ Let’s Get Fit with YouFit }

Hey friends!

Staying fit is so hard and staying focused is even harder!! Trust me, I know! I started the year with a really cool vision board and planned on getting sweaty at the gym on the daily or at least 5 times a week. I’m lucky if I’ve made it in there 3 times a week. Getting so real with you, Michael has to bribe me sometimes to get me to join him to a gym sesh. I cry, I  kick, I hide under my bed sheets and find millions of excuses not to go to the gym. Well the excuses are running out. It’s such a struggle for me because I see these girls after having 2-3 kids with beautiful fit bodies, and if anyone should have permissible excuses, it should be them. So as a girl from Vegas told me, I need to change things up. I want to look good, feel good and walk around with a proud body. Summer bodies are made in winter so tis the season.  Today, I’m partnering up with YouFit Health Clubs to encourage you to join me on this journey! I hope you can join me and in 3 months we can check back in to see where we are. Will you join? YouFit Health Clubs is joining in on the journey and giving 6 lucky readers/followers a six month membership, so that together, we can work toward “A better you.” It’s a new year, let’s be a new us.

Change doesn’t happen without habit, and habits aren’t formed overnight. I’d love your participation in the Resist the Resolution Challenge. Let’s work together and encourage one another to not only continue to prioritize health and fitness in the new year, but to adopt habits that keep the target in sight months later.

So to enter this giveaway, please leave a comment below and let us know why you should win a 6 month membership to YouFit Health Clubs. Read More…

{ How to: Make your lips look bigger & Brighter Smile }

 

Hey friends, happy Friday!

Are you enjoying the long weekend?? I loved waking up here in Las vegas and can’t wait to tackle everything I have planned for this visit to the magic city. I’m vlogging my time here and can’t wait to share with you.

A lot of my friends have been noticing my lips a little more lately and it’s partially because I plumped them up a few months ago with Ily at Dr. Baumann’s office (see the process here) and because I have been doing these really easy and simple tricks to make them a little bigger as well. So of course I had to share these tips with you.

The products I used are from e.l.f cosmetics, but you can use whatever you have at home. I’m also sharing a quick and easy lip scrub recipe in case you want to make your own.
