Valentine’s Day: Date Night Ideas for the Married and Single Person

Valentine's Day

Stay Calm, Valentine’s Day is tomorrow and i’m here to help

One of my favorite Valentine’s Day was my first one with my husband. He was such a BAD gift giver. My love language is gifts so I always go ALL OUT and spoil him. I get so much pleasure out of giving. He is the opposite. His love language is providing for us, so when it comes to gift giving, he thinks a book marker is a great gift (rolls eyes). Don’t worry, I’ve trained him and he’s getting better each year. But, our first Valentine’s day was special because it was our first and he gave me my favorite thing…unadulterated time with him. Sometimes, it’s not about gifts but about quality time with the one you love.

Now, don’t get me wrong…I LOVE A GOOD GIFT and a night out, so this post is all about some fun ideas that you and your spouse or single friends can do on Valentine’s Day. FYI, if you’re single, grab your girlfriends or guy friends and plan a night out with them. Here are four great Valentine’s Day date night ideas that are sure to be a hit:

  1. Game Night: for my singe guys and girl, invite some of your friends over and get Charades or Apples Over Apples out and enjoy each other’s company. You never know if you’ll find that special someone on your Valentine’s Day Game Night.
  2. Dinner and Netflix: I absolutely hate going out and standing in line for an hour for a table at a restaurant. Last Valentine’s Day, I actually cooked dinner for my husband and we stayed home, ate, talked and watched a movie. We had such a great intimate night and we didn’t have to tip anyone. Remember to keep it light, no talk about kids or finances, just good times.
  3. Table For Two: Now, if you want to brave the long lines and busy streets on Valentine’s day, make sure you call ahead to get put on their waiting list. Otherwise, pick a time that you know is not too busy, either go really early or later on for your date.
  4. Get Active: Get out and take your spouse or friends to a bowling alley or Top Golf. Find something active to do around your city and go make some memories. FYI Groupon is the best for finding coupons for great date ideas for Valentine’s Day

Married ladies, remember even if you’re staying home, dress up and make yourself into a gift for your husband. FYI husbands, try your best to look like a snack too. If you’re single and having friend’s over or going out for Valentine’s Day, make sure you look nice, you never know who you might bump into (ayyyyyeeeee).

Valentine's Day

My outfit is Valentine’s Day is perfect because it’s comfortable, cute and not overly cheesy with a bunch of red or pink. I kept it black and white with pops of red in my knit jacket and booties.

No matter what you do, make sure you enjoy yourself on Valentine’s Day. If you’re single, don’t just sit at home and bemoan your singleness, get out and enjoy time with yourself or with friends. If you’re married, plan something adventurous for your and your husband or wife and remember, no kids or finance talk..focus on the two of you and your love. I hope this helps you in some way.

Jeanetics: The Perfect Jeans for Women

“The Perfect Jeans will have every head turning in the room..trying to figure out where you got them from”

Y’all the perfect jeans are as hard to find as a good man with a 200K a month job, and no baby momma drama. Sheesh, what does a girl have to do to find a pair that lengthen her legs, snatches in her waist and gives her an apple booty? Well don’t worry…i’m compiling some perfect jeans for the woman that is a jean-a-holic. That’s why this post is called “jeanetics,” because unlike the genes that make up who you are, the perfect jeans can make you who you want to be (ayyyyeee).

perfect jeans

After having a cesarean 13 months ago and then another cesarean due to ovarian tortion, my stomach has a permanent pouch at the bottom. YES, I’M WORKING ON GETTING RID OF IT…PRAY FOR ME! So, the perfect jeans for me is one that is high-waisted and is ready to put in work and cinch in my stomach. These pair are my absolute favorite because they cinch in my waist and my legs. When I jean shop, these are the three check points that have to be clicked off before I pull of hubby’s check card:

  1. HOW MUCH LYCRA YOU GOT– When shopping for jeans online or even in store make sure there is enough lycra. Remember the more lycra, the more stretch you get and the more comfortable the jeans will be. 2% elastane or spandex is what you want to look for in the perfect jeans. 
  2. HOW HIGH– i’m a petite girl…i’m actually 5ft on a good day. So, for my shape, high-rise/waisted jeans are my best friends. they elongate me and accentuates my waist. Read about what jeans are perfect for your shape HERE.
  3. HOW MUCH– Listen, I love to shop smart and save money but I also know when I have to spend money on an item because it needs to last. When it comes to jeans, what you pay for is what you get. So, be ready to splurge when you find that perfect jeans that makes you look like a full-course meal. The one’s I’m linking below are very good to your wallet:

If you came to my house, you would find all of these perfect jeans in my closet. The first pair of perfect jeans from H&M is the pair I’m wearing in this post. I wanted to give you all a range from boyfriend jeans to jeans with drama so I hope you find a pair that speaks to you.

You can pair your new perfect jeans with any sweater or blouse and go out to strut your stuff. If anyone asks where you got your jeans from, tell them…a little birdy told me about these.

Black Power: What I’m Wearing to the Black Panther Premiere

February 16, 2018 is a BIG day because Black Panther comes and so does my power outfit

I plan on BUSTING the cinema doors wide open next month, dressed in ALL BLACK waiving my fist in the hair and celebrating the power that is Black Panther. I am so excited about this movie for more than one reason.black panther

When I was a young kid in Africa, my favorite superhero was Captain Planet. Who remembers him and his team of planeteers? They would go around saving the planet from all and any environmental disaster….Y’all i’m singing the theme song in my head now (lol). FYI I had a huge crush on Kwame, who was from Ghana and possessed the power of earth (yea, I was that kid).

 

Who else is planning on seeing Black Panther with me and if so, what are you wearing?! I actually planned on wearing something very Ankara and tribal but then I realized it was also Black history night and I wanted to make sure I was regal, powerful and unforgettable in black leather…ayyyeeeee! My motto for that night is Black Panther Loves Black Leather!

black panther

I am decked out in faux leather from head to foot in this post and I love it! I wanted to add some color to the look and what is better than a power red and a caution belt to warn people that I am armed and ready to slay. But seriously, I want to see this movie not only because it gives us a black superhero, which we desperately need, but also because of the powerful black females that are a part of the cast. These women just aren’t arm candy or helpless maidens waiting to be rescued, but they are QUEENS and warriors in their own right and as women, we need to see more of this on the big screen.

Now, let’s talk about this all black ensemble. When wearing black, I like to mix different textures and prints. When wearing any monochromatic look, keep this in mind…mix textures. I have a soft sheen faux leather stretch thigh-high boots and a faux leatherette jacket with a fur collar. Everything is black and leather but the textures are different. I also added a red patent leather bag to complete this ensemble. You don’t have to copy my look exactly but I want to give you some of my favorite leather items that would definitely make a statement at the Black Panther premiere.

BOSSED UP: Pants Suits For The Everyday Woman

You know a boss lady when she struts into the room suited and booted in a well-fitted pantsuit”

Soap Box Moment: For so long, women have worked harder or as hard as men but made statistically less dollar for dollar than their counterparts. Women have been marginalized, put down, and harassed simply because of their sex. Well women, It’s time for us to put on our pantsuits and fight back against every injustice, and harassment anyone would try to throw our way. The Golden Globes last night made me so proud to be a W-O-M-A-N!

I was almost in tears when Oprah said in her speech, “So I want all the girls watching here, now, to know that a new day is on the horizon…” a day where our truths and our words will set us free from discrimination. Almost every woman came, dressed in all black, in solidarity against the sexual abuses that has been happening in Hollywood for centuries. I wore all black as I watched from my home in solidarity with them as well. Remember, no matter how scared you are to speak out, “your truth is the most powerful tool you will ever have” so SPEAK OUT and don’t let anyone ever shut you down as a woman…YOUR VOICE IS POWERFUL!

Now, let me get off my soap box and talk about the fashion on the red carpet and some of my favorite looks…fyi some of the women had on pantsuits.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I just loved Kyra Sedgwick’s pantsuit so much. It fit her like a glove and accentuated her tiny waist and long legs. It also cemented the fact that women are here to stay, a force to be reckoned with and not to be taken lightly. To me a well-fit pantsuit will speak volumes and louder than anything else you can say.

My pantsuit is vintage but I wanted to give you some of the fabulous options that i’ve been lusting over this season.

If you don’t get anything out of this post, just remember that we as women are powerful. Don’t forget that and don’t let anyone try and convince you otherwise. I hope this post motivated you in some way to be a BOSS WOMAN. Check out the pantsuits I posted and don’t be afraid to dress like an adult every now and then. If you didn’t already, go read my post on how to set goals for your 2018 HERE. Hope 2018 is treating you well so far…see you next post.

Wanderlust: New Years in New Orleans

travel tips

“My travel tips came in handy on my recent visit to the beautiful New Orleans”

How did you ring in 2018?! I brought it in with my husband and son and a family friend in New Orleans. There are two places that I love to visit simply because I can eat until I drop. One of those places is Chicago and the other is New Orleans. This is my fourth time visiting this beautiful, historic city and I fall in love with it more and more each time I go. So, If you ever plan on visiting New Orleans or going anywhere in 2018, keep reading my travel tips and see some behind the scene pictures and videos into our last 2017 Adventure.

Traveling Tips

Traveling with my husband has always been so easy-breezy. We packed, went to a new city and LIVED IT UP. Now, enter our one-year-old who thinks the world revolves around him (the gag is, it really does). Things changed and I learned a lot. Here are my three travel tips while vacationing with a mini-emperor.

travel tips

 

  1. Be fluid: I am the chief planner. I like to do things a certain way and I plan all our trips, meals and adventurers when we travel. Honey, with a child all that changes. If he doesn’t want to go out to eat, we don’t go. If he needs a nap, we leave the zoo, museum, outing, wherever and take him back for a nap. So, don’t get mad…just adjust. Even if you don’t have a kid, things and plans change and when on a trip, learn to take it easy and be fluid. Don’t get mad when a flight gets cancelled or you don’t get into a place you wanted to go, find something else to do and have fun. Keep reading for more travel tips.
  2. Travel Light: Now that I have to pack for two, I have learned to pack lightly. Plus, If you overpack, how are you going to bring your goodies back home?! I also learned to roll my clothes into little balls so that I can get more into the suitcase.
  3. Bring a camera: Listen carefully, don’t get stuck behind a camera while your family enjoys life without you, but do bring one along to document the vacation. I asked my husband for half-a-day to shoot for my blog and I incorporated him into the shot day by having him drive me to the best places for photography, and we even shot in a park so him and my son could play while I did my thing. You want to document the time but not be left out of the experience. These three are not just travel tips, but life trips in general so apply them wherever you see fit.

After those three travel tips, the last I want to give you is to download some of my favorite traveling apps. I live for apps that tell me where the best eateries, events and night-time fun can be found. I love YELP and I use it even in my own city to find the best eateries around. I also go on Foodnetwork and look up places that Guy Fieri of Diners Drive-in and Dives has been to and I visit those spots if possible (his lists are legitimately awesome). If you’re flying continental or across the states, Tripit is a great app that creates a master itinerary for every trip you make. PackPoint helps you pack and not forget essentials based on where you are going and of course Uber to give you rides from your airport to hotel or around the city and Google Maps for those who rent cars or drive from one city to another. FYI carry around Theraflu or Emergen-C and hand sanitizer especially if you have a young one. Planes and hotels are filled with germs and you don’t want to catch a bug while enjoying your vacation. 

travel tips

We arrived In New Orleans Friday night and we went out to Cheesecake Bistro and I had the shrimp pasta and the red velvet cheesecake. I decided to channel Kim K and wear sweatpants with some clear heels. I dressed to eat that night. The next day, we went to my favorite brunch place called Trolley Stop and I wore a pair of faux leather pants, an army green slouchy tee, a blazer and leopard print flats.

Saturday was my photoshoot day and our park day. I can’t wait to show you all the looks I shot…but I did get to shoot a family friend we brought along to help us out with Sammy and she looked divine. We then went to Acme Oyster Bar for dinner and petted some horses. New Orleans just has so much to see. We stayed in the French Quarter at Staybridge Inn so we could walk practically everywhere.

Sunday, which was New Years Eve, We watched my home church on our phones and then we went Two Sisters for dinner. That night was amazingly cold and we didn’t stay out long. We finished off the NYE night with watchnight service on our phones and rang it in kisses, hugs and fireworks going off around the city of New Orleans. It was divine.

New Years day was a rest day for all of us because we were all getting a bit under the weather. But that night, my husband and I went to the Alabama Game at the Mercedes-Benz Auditorium (this is the real reason why my husband took us to NO..lol). He is a BIG Alabama fan and once again his team dominated. It was my first live-football game experience and even though I didn’t know what was happening, I enjoyed being there with him.

The last day we stopped by Cafe Du Monde and grabbed a couple of beignets and coffee and hit the road. Overall, the trip was a smashing success. We all got sick, but I wouldn’t trade the memories for anything in the world. If you plan on visiting this beautiful city, take a look at the list of the eateries down below and check them out next time you’re there. Remember to make 2018 the best year ever and check out my last post on how to make realistic goals for 2018 HERE

How to Rock: Midi Skirts

how to wear midi skirt

A Classy Lady always has two midi skirts, one great sweater and a red lip

Hello chapped lips, chapped hands and chapped feet…Hello Winter. Today I want to talk about the perfect midi skirts that can be transitioned into classy winter wear. I want to show you where to find and how to wear midi skirts all season long. Okay, so you’re asking, what exactly are midi skirts? Well, read on and you’ll find out!

Midi skirts are also known as mid calf length skirts because they should hit you right at the top of your shin where your leg begins to thin out. Midi skirts should NOT stop at the thickets part of your legs or you will look stocky and anything below the top of the shin will have you looking like you’re going to a tent revival with your 10 kids (LOL). For our taller, thinner girls, any length midi skirt will work perfect for you because you have the legs to pull it off. Most midi skirts come either pleated or with a fuller skirt so keep the top as streamlined as possible. Wear either a form-fitting top or something that’s a little more revealing to counterbalance the conservative bottom.

how to wear midi skirt

I loved being able to wear my Forever21 midi skirt with a loose-fitting off-shoulder sweater. It was a warm, comfortable look that I was able to wear to church and then out for brunch with the girls. I tucked one corner into the skirt to make sure you saw my waist. What I love about a good midi skirt, beside the length, is that it’s always high-waisted so it sits at the smallest part of your waist. I was able to transition my midi skirt into a winter look by adding on a knit sweater and a pair of rose-gold metallic booties from Shein. My faux-fur bag also added to the feeling of a crisp cold day. Another way to transition your midi skirts is to pair them with a button down silk or chiffon blouse and then add a moto jacket to finish off the look. The faux leather moto jacket will give a little masculinity and edge to the hyper feminine look underneath, and keep you warm.

Mixologist: How to Wear Wide Leg Pants

how to wear wide leg pants

“How to wear wide leg pants is simple, put them on one foot at a time” 

Who doesn’t love a pair of wide leg pants?! Okay, honest moment, I used to HATE wide leg pants because I felt like they swallowed my petite frame and made me look shorter. But the moment I realized I was just styling them wrongly, a new world of possibilities opened up for me. Wide leg pants can be so chic and classy, and, they can elongate your frame. They can also make you look thinner as long as you know what to pair them with to achieve a body flattering look. In this post I want to give you three ways to wear this style and give you some options on where to buy some terrific wide leg pants.

  1. The first way to wear a pair of wide leg pants is as a monochromatic look. Maybe with a suit matching jacket or with the same color blouse and heels. A wide leg pant with a fitted matching suit jacket will give long lines and a chic look. A fitted jacket with the wide leg pants help to accentuate that waist line (and what girl doesn’t want an itty-bitty waist?!).
  2. The second way is to buy a pair of wide leg jeans and wear a belted shirt or crop top with it. Whenever you wear volume at the top or the bottom, you want to wear something a little more fitted to balance out your proportions so you don’t look big all over. A crop-top is a good way to go if you don’t mind a little midriff, but if you don’t want your tummy out, try a fitted bustier over a white shirt or a blouse that belts at the smallest part of your waist.
  3. Lastly stack those heels. Nothing makes a pair of legs look longer than a great set of heels. For my petite girls that want to give the wide leg pants another try, get a pair of platform heels to help make those legs look even longer. If you are on the taller side and don’t want to look taller, you can always wear a pair of flats to complete the look.

FYI a nice stripped fitted button down shirt tucked inside a pair of wide leg pants would also make a great work-day outfit. Take a look at some celebrities and stylist wearing the wide leg pants trend and get some inspiration from them.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

With this look I have on, I followed my second rule of the wide leg pants trend and paired my Splashed by DKG pants with a cropped ribbed long-sleeve sweater. Since it’s winter, I put a grey wool coat over it, wore a pair of Jessica Simpson grey d’Orsay pumps and finished it off with a fur and leather bag.

I absolutely love this look because not only is it effortless, but, I look very thin wearing it. The wide leg pants elongate my frame and the cropped top gives me the illusion of a thinner waist (yes, I SAID ILLUSION). No six-pack yet, so I fake it until I make it.

Now, let me take a minute and talk about these pants designed by Derek and Daniel of Splashed by DKG. I LOVE THESE PANTS. As soon as I put them on I knew they did my body justice. I love that it’s a ruffle waist pair of wide leg pants and that they flatter my body and make me look longer and thinner. It’s red, which is the color of the season and the splashed texture gives it a whole lot of edge. Visit SplashedbyDKG to find out more about the company and shop their looks. You can also find them on Instagram Splashedbydkg.com

I hope these tips have helped you in some way or another. Don’t forget to share this with someone that might love to read it and comment below and let me know how you would wear this wide leg pants trend. Find me on Instagram at Oluwafunmifly

Forever Grateful: Lessons I’ve Learned This Past Year

ISSABIRTHDAYCELEBRATION and all I want to do is reflect on the lessons i’ve learned this past year

Y’all, I am a whole year older, a new year wiser and a new year happier. There is only one word that comes to mind today and that word is GRATEFUL! I am grateful for my life, I am grateful for my family, I am grateful for my friends and I am grateful for all of you! All I want to do is throw a dance party and praise God for all of His many blessings, love, protection and favor. As I reflect on the lessons i’ve learned this past year I am overwhelmed by how much i’ve grown, become more focused and learned to take things in stride. In this post I want to share with you the five lessons i’ve learned this past year of my life and I hope it helps you in some way.

lessons I've learned this past year

 

Here are the five lessons I’ve learned this past year and I’ll use my name FUNMI as an acronym:

  1. Focus on the Good: There are so many things that point you to the bad and teaches you to focus on what’s wrong with your life, but you have to train your mind to focus on the good all the time. The bad in your life that you don’t like, fix it if it can be fixed but don’t fixate on it. Allow the good to be on the forefront of your mind. Philippians 4:8 says that “whatever things are lovely, whatever things are pure, whatever things are of good report, that’s what you meditate on.” So, remind yourself that you are an AMAZING human and worthy of love, success and happiness.
  2. Understand Yourself: No one will know you better than you know you. I took this year out to find myself, to find out what I wanted to do with my life and figure out how I was going to make it happen. It doesn’t matter what age you are, introspection can happen at any time. So, find yourself, find your dream, find your purpose and everything else will fall into place.
  3. Never Give Up: You don’t know how many times this year I wanted to give up on this whole blogging endeavor. I am two years into this experience and sometimes I get so bogged down with the lack of “progress” that I just want to quit. But, I keep telling myself that someone else’s trajectory is not my trajectory; someone’s path is not my path. I have to remember lesson number one and focus on the good and that keeps me from giving up. Whether it’s your job, your husband, your friends, your dream, DON’T GIVE UP… success is right around the corner.
  4. Make Time For Family: In this world of busyness and Boss moves, we have to remember friends and family. We have to remember the people that helped us get where we are now. This one lesson I’ve learned this past year is very important! I have a one-year-old son and I have to make a choice to focus on him. I’m also married, and in the middle of all the whirlwind of my day, I have to make time to focus on him. We can’t win in the business, education or our sphere of influence and lose our families and friends in the process. Make time for what’s truly important.
  5. Influence Others: The best lesson I’ve learned this year is to influence those around me. I am just starting out in my journey in life with my baby, my husband and my blog but there is someone that needs what I have to offer. I try and use my influence for good and be an open book and an open door. If anyone needs help, advice or prayer, I’m always there to help. Real talk, the more you pour into others, the more you get out of it…SO GIVE OF YOURSELF SELFLESSLY!

lessons I've learned this past year

It’s a new year for me and these lessons I’ve learned this past year will go into 2018 with me. I will focus on the good, ignore the bad and love the ones who love me back. I plan on spending my birthday with my husband in Las Vegas for a couple of days and then coming back and hugging my son until he gets tired of me. I am so grateful to see another year and again, I am grateful for each and everyone of you who come week after week to read, comment and love on my blog and on me. You keep me going. Thank you!

Now that I’ve given you the five lessons I’ve learned this past year, I hope you’ll be able to take them into 2018 with you as well. My look today is very elegant and the color is perfect for the holidays and for my BURFDAY! I wanted to be elegant and dramatic. The skirt is Badgley Mischka from Dillards Department Store and my blouse was especially made by my friends and visionary Derek D’eandre. My heels are from Macy’s Department store. I hope you enjoyed this post and this look. Check out my last post on my favorite faux furs for this winter season HERE.

Hope y’all have a wonderful weekend. For collaborations email me at houseofodarablog@gmail.com and find me on Instagram at Oluwafunmifly to see all the behind-the-scenes Vegas shenanigans.

FurryFriends: My Favorite Faux Furs

This list of my favorite faux furs are sure to make any girl swoon

Y’all it’s winter. Well, not really for us down in the South but don’t let that stop you from pulling out your furs. This post is all about my favorite faux furs this season and how you can wear them. Listen Linda, don’t log off, I won’t have you looking like an 80’s rapper I promise. Keep reading and get ready to purchase one or more of my favorite faux furs this season.

When it comes to wearing Fur, less is more. If you’re not going for a really dramatic look or a runway look, you can wear fur and not look over the top. Remember, fur can be just around the collar of a jacket or a fur throw over your shoulder. Nothing looks as good as a leather jacket with a fur collar. Whether your fur is real or faux, don’t be afraid to rock it.

my favorite faux furs

 

This look I have on is the over-the-top fur look but like I said, you can make it more subdued. An all black outfit with a colorful fur or even a black fur will make the outfit more luxe and sophisticated. Scroll through to see some of my favorite fur looks. These looks range from a simple fur collar on a leather jacket or coat to knee-length fur coats. These should inspire you to figure out which trend and type you could see yourself wearing:

“Hey You, your shopping salvation is here and I’m talking about all the Cyber Monday Deals for the smart shopper”

Well, Thanksgiving and Black Friday have come and gone and now it’s time of the us house-birds to put on our bathrobe, slip on our slippers and pull out that computer. IT’S CYBER MONDAY Y’ALL! I do most of my shopping online so I live for Cyber Monday deals. One of my favorite online stores, of course, is Amazon. Every year, Amazon begins previewing their Cyber-Monday deals super early so you can get an idea of what you would like to purchase. This post delves into the best Cyber Monday deals for the smart shopper.

In this post, Cyber Monday deals for the smart shopper, I want to give you some ideas on what shops have cyber Monday deals and how to make sure you hit the right ones at the right time. The BIG deal about cyber Monday is to try and buy your BIG ticket items at a low price before they sell out. Most of Amazon’s high ticket items will sell out before Monday even begins. Here are some shops that are selling these high-end items such as Televisions, Video game consoles and computers for a great discounted price.
