Little Loves!

Happy Early Love Day!

I remember, when I was younger, my dad would bring home flower, a card and cash for my mom every Valentine day. Then he would go to his car and come back out with a teddy bear and a rose for me and my older sister. He’ll never understand how much we appreciated it. It made us feel so loved and it’s something i’ll never forget. I don’t even think he understood what that little $7.00 bear did for our self-esteem and self-worth.  His little thoughts of kindness not only showed us how much he loved us, but how a true man was supposed to treat a lady. He never missed a Valentine Day. Now that i’m married, I know that I want my husband to carry on this tradition with our little girl one day.

Now, I know that there are a lot of women and men that never had anyone show them that kind of love or really care about them like that, and I pray that you will meet someone one day who will love you with all their heart. Until then, remember that you have someone who died for you and loves you very much. His greatest gift was His son. You are very much loved.

I decided to do this shoot with some of my favorite little kids. I borrowed my two nieces and my Godchild since I don’t have kids YET (don’t worry dad, they’re coming). I had a lot of fun with these precious little girls and wanted to show them how precious, beautiful and loved they are. If you have a little girl, remember to remind her that she is perfect and loved.

I pray this Valentine day is a good one for you and that no matter where you find yourself, you are content and happy.

Love you all…Mean it!

LoveDay Fly

Valentine Day is 5 days away.

For me, it’s all about the outfits. I tried and tried to get my hubby to do a post with me for Valentine Day but he wasn’t having it…LOL. He’s not about the blogging life. But, I did do a great post that I can’t wait to share with you all. I want to share some affordable and cute styles for you and your significant other for you v-day. Everything here will be wallet-friendly because you don’t have to splurge to look like a million dollars.

I hope this helps you in finding something perfect for your valentine day look. Don’t forget to try other styles like a jumpsuit or even a skirt. Whatever feels good to you and looks great on you, try it out.

Here is a look at how I would dress my husband if he would allow me to…LOL. But he has such great style already, I can’t complain. I love this monochromatic look:

Does your husband or boyfriend let you dress them for special occasions? So, would you dress him in this look? I like it because it’s so clean and crisp and would tone down the bright reds and pinks that I would definitely be wearing.

I can’t wait to hear from you all about your V-day plans and what you plan on wearing.

Don’t forget about the All-red look I did at the beginning of the month. Check it out and scroll all the way to the bottom for the links for the look: Hello February

 

I hope this helped you in some way. Keep being fashionable. Love you. Mean it!

Hello February

It’s the Month of Love!

Time for heart-shaped candies, Oversized teddy bears and lots of proposals. My husband actually proposed to me February 12, 2014. February is a beautiful month. Even if you are a single woman or man, there are still ways to celebrate. I know a group of single girls that do a “Girls Night Out” to celebrate the joy of being single and encourage each other. Find something like that in your area, or simply dress up and go out with a friend; you don’t have to sit at home lonely just because you haven’t found your special someone. Before we were both married, my bestie Brittini and I would go out and even buy each other gifts…LOL.

So, for my married women, what are your plans with your hubby? I need ideas and quick. I’m thinking a trip to Atlanta.

Kim Kardashian West

I wanted to start out this month with RED!!!! And nobody does color better to me than Calvin Klein. The dress is a blazer style dress, which has been very popular lately. Kim Kardashian is seen here in a Balmain Blazer dress for $4,885.00. If you can afford it, please buy me one too.

My dress was NOT that expensive at all but it’s still super FLY. I’m so obsessed with this style and have worn a similar dress before. I found this one at IMG_8761forever21 and paired them with some Nine West heels and an oversized belt from Charlotte Russe. I will not blog this look because i’m blogging this red look that’s very similar.

 

 

Let me know what you think of this Hot Red dress and look and let me know about your valentine day plans and if you’re single, let us know some great things for singles in your area. Someone single might be reading this that needs something to do in your area.

Blazer Dress- Calvin Klein/Option B- Charlotte Russe /Option C- Missguided

Heels-  Gianni Bini Lilliana Striped Metal Bit Pumps/ Option B- Dillards or the Black Pair

Graphic Purse- Betsey Johnson

So, let us know some of your V-Day plans, your goals for the month of February and your thoughts on this look. I pray that this month is fantastic, blessed and fruitful for you.
