WHATS YOUR INSPIRATION?

I've been wanting to write this post for a while but my baby girl has been keeping me busy.  It's better late than never.  I'm a visual person so when I see something or write it down I can remember it.  Vision/inspiration boards are great for seeing what it is you want to accomplish.  There are sites like Pinterest and Tumblr that allow you collect images in one place but I need something that I can see every time I walk by.  I had inspirational boards before baby girl arrived but taken them down since it was right above her crib.  Now that I'm getting back into the swing of things I realized I need my boards back.  I searched Pinterest for some inspiration on inspiration boards (lol).  I love the organized boards (I love organization) but when it comes to this kind of stuff I like to have images everywhere.  This is project would be great for you.  You can create one big board with everything or break it up into several categories.  Here are a few ideas for creating your vision/inspiration board(s).
1. Fashion-What you like now/How you want to dress?
2. Savings-What are saving for/What do you want to save for?
3. Hobby(s)-What is your hobby now/What is a new interest you would like to pursue?
4. Fitness-Whats your fitness goals/Whats your ideal body image (Please be realistic on this one.  If you have a Beyonce body shape don't put up images of women who have a Chanel Iman body shape.  Lets not set ourselves up).
5. Home-What home improvements do you want to do?
6. Personal-Do you want to spend more time with family/travel more?
This is just a few ideas for getting your boards together.  When you see an image, a color, a piece of fabric, etc that you like put it on your board(s).  You can use anything to create your board(s).  Cork boards, card stock, or just your wall will do fine.  Let me know if you create your board(s).

Much Love & Fashion Fun,

NEW YEARS EVE

The new year is upon us again.  The older I get the faster the year seems to go by.  Now is the time to reflect and see if I have accomplished my goals for 2013 and to figure out what needs to change for 2014.  One of my new goals is to dress up more.  I love glamour.  There's no need to wait for special occasions to wear something fabulous.  Here are three dress inspirations for you.  Sequins is all that is needed to stand out at the party this year.  Which look is your favorite?

NEW YEARS EVE

NEW YEARS EVE

THE HOLIDAYS

I love this time of year.  The weather starts to cool down, eggnog is sold in stores, & everyone tends to be a little nicer.  Each year my cousin and I look forward to Starbucks Sea Salt Carmel Hot Chocolate.  This drink is so popular where we live that most of the time they run out of the sea salt before the new year.  It's such a bummer.  Well it's time to change things.  Since having JuJu I want to make sure we start our own traditions.  Making my own signature hot chocolate is one tradition I will start in my home.  I found this recipe from How sweet it is and fell in love.   Never-mind it's loaded with calories, it's HOT CHOCOLATE!  This recipe will sure be a favorite of JuJu's (my daughter) and MT's (my husband) for years to come.  MT loves coconut.  I'll just personalize it to make it my own.  You can find the full recipe here.  Enjoy!

SHE'S HERE!!!

My baby girl is finally here.  She is nine weeks now.  Wow how time flies. The days are passing by so fast that I miss days of the week.  All my time and energy goes to her.  We still haven't set a routine and don't believe we will for a few more weeks.  I am really living one day at a time, enjoying this precious gift God has given us.  I normally like to rush to the next thing but I am taking my sweet time with baby girl.  She will never be this age again and I will never be a new mom again.  Because I have this wonderful edition to my life I will post articles about baby stuff and parenthood.  If you're not at this point in your life feel free to skip post relating to baby girl/parenthood.  But hopefully you will be along for the ride of this wonderful journey.  Want more photos?  Follow me on Instagram @Teatodd2.

VOGUE BAD

Be bad and wear a graphic tee, short shorts, sky high heels, & a chunky sweater. The weather is cooler now so this outfit is very unexpected.

BRIGHTEN UP BASICS

It's getting cooler now. To keep your basics looking fresh add a pop of color. This long sleeve yellow shirt brightens up everyday denim and neutral blazer. Keep your bag and shoes in a neutral color as well to keep the eyes on the pop of yellow.

FASHION NOW

While searching the internet tonight I seen a very daring cutout dress on a woman (the second dress below). This dress is hot, a little too hot. I must admit this cutout is too much for me.  I believe you can't wear panties with this. I did  find the site that made this custom dress and found that there are more demure yet original styles available. These styles I could wear to the appropriate events. The designer started off by making clothing for herself to fit her unique body shape. Others loved her designs and the rest is history. With the holiday season upon us it would be nice to walk into a party and not see three other girls wearing your dress. You are bound to turn heads. With uniqueness comes a price. However it's well worth it since the garment will fit only you and it's handmade. Would you wear any of these, if so whats your favorite?

TREND ALERT: PRINTED CARDIGAN

Mattie from Mattieologie.com has a beautiful printed cardigan on by Rachel Roy.  She keeps her pieces basic so focal point of her look is the cardigan.  This is a great go to look for last minute outfit ideas.  The cost is a little pricey for my liking but the quality looks really good.  It can be purchased at Macys for $189.

Much Love & Fashion Fun,
