Top Fall Accessory Trends

I know we all hate to admit it but summer is officially coming to a close. However that doesn't mean that we have to submit to dull fashion. Typically we all tend to wear more layers when the weather starts to cool down so why not make the most of that fashion trend and layer up! With these layering tips you're definitely on trend and your definitely fall on the best dressed list no matter what you're wearing with these tips. Why settle for boring when you can stand out while keeping cost on the low.   

Statement Jewelry is definitely a trend that you can wear year round. Why not stack them? It also incorporates a bit of edge and a pop of color during the fall months when most tend to wear dull and drab colors. Punch things up a bit with an ear crawler that's blinged out! Or stack-able rings or ear cuffs. Paired with anything these are sure to get noticed. 

Pair your denim with lace socks! It's definitely a eye catching switch up that simple and chic! It can also bring new life to a boring shoe. If you're familiar with the site then you know I advocate for every girl to own a pair of cheap pair of black pumps or flats that go with everything! You don't have to break the bank on a pair of notice me shoes. A frugal basic shoe can easily take you from the office to happy hour or simply step out looking BOSS if you pair them with a lace bootie sock! You can even take it a step further by adding a bling ribbon to the top of the sock to hold them in place. If you haven't noticed  these are super sexy too! You don't even need to see the rest of the outfit.
So... are you catching what I'm throwing??? You DO NOT have to re-invent your wardrobe to be fashionable. Add a few key pieces to spice it up and all of them can be found on Nifty To FAB! Reasonably priced and has all your accessories to keep you DIFFERENT (in a good way). I swear by these!!!!

Another way to stand out is with your hair accessories. We all tend to drift towards the easy hair style that we're comfortable with. Make that easy style POP with hair bling! It's another super easy, fast way to take you from average to fashion goddess in no time. Trust me!!! I'm the most fashionable person in my office and it literally takes me 30 minutes or less each day to get dressed. I am not a morning person. I'm not super fond on spending hours on make-up either so that 30 minutes includes my make-up and skin care regimen. I tend to over accessorize and it's simply done with a few key noticeable pieces. 



This is a real dog toy!!! Which one of ya'll freaks out here letting their dog do this to them???


Jordyn and Megan... Living their Best Life!

I am not mad at Jordyn for solidifying her HOT GIRL SUMMER with the creator Megan the Stallion. I enjoy RAP music! That's my shit and Megan is definitely enjoying the fame off her Fever album. She dropped a few jewels in Pimpin because all women should take note because these are words to live by FOREVER!

"Damn I want some head but I chose the dough instead... I could never ever let a nigg* fuck me out my bread!       Ain't no dick alive that could make me lose my mind.."  
For those of you who need a translation, it basically means get your fucking mind right ladies and don't let any man discourage you from getting your money FIRST! Do what you feel is right for you and if he's not with it or can't see that you have ambition goals for financial freedom then he's not for you (PERIOD). I don't care how many butterflies you have thinking about him or enjoy his company for right now. The picture is bigger than how he makes you feel at the moment! A lot of  women let "feelings" control their actions. NOPE... don't play yourself. Didn't even like the song at first but once I heard the message... I was sold on Megan!
Jordyn's out here trying to get her a bag and I'm not mad at her! Keep them talking about you and people will keep trying to link up which will increase her exposure and secure those earnings. That's the business model she's following and it may not be for you or me... but it's definitely a recipe. Good luck to all the ladies out there paving a road to their own success. I love to see ladies WINNING!


New Aged Views??? Or Nah

What's been up people? I must admit that I'm a hippie or whatever the new term is for those like me who are nature loving, fashion conscious, aura reading, preferably eats organic urbanite! It's only natural that I would raise my kids to have similar beliefs as myself but lately I've questioned if I may have done them a disservice by not exposing them to church or a steady religion. My eldest is turning 21 in 2 days and it got me to thinking. I didn't raise my kids to be overly religious however we do believe in GOD. Although I grew up attending vacation bible school every summer I didn't feel the need to expose my children to church as I've never felt that attendance at a church was necessary to express my faith for my creator.We all know people who attend church and have questionable views and some even use it as a way to feel superior to others with differing views. Honestly I'm quite proud of my family as we're all really good people and we all possess a great morale compass which in lacking for so many in today's society.  Needless to say as far as religion goes, I am not really religious but I do pray and we treat other people with respect and appreciate differences. I speak with my creator often  and show gratitude for my spiritual guides.In addition to honoring my creating I also practice a holistic practices for unknown forces and occurrences that me may not know exist but I don't believe it's disrespectful to my belief in God to do so. I do what is consider "new age" practices such as smudge cleansing my home, earthing which is basically exposing your barefoot in grass to ground your energy naturally and a few others. It may be new age to some but for me it makes perfect sense to be to maintain a positive energy!

The practice of  what's considered "new age" has nothing to do with ones spiritual beliefs. God is ever presence but so are forces that we may not understand so I take a little extra precaution and teach my children to be aware of the unknown. However not all people share my beliefs. Recently my daughters boyfriend called the idea of smudging witch craft which sort of bothered me a bit. She offered to smudge his new apartment to clear the energy and he got offended. LOL That also got me to thinking... if you're dating someone is it okay if you have different views and self healing practices? My thoughts have always been to do what you like and practice whatever you need to make yourself happy. My husband doesn't believe in my new age practices but he isn't bothered by them either. He damn sure doesn't see them as witch craft or at least he's never said that to me. I appreciate my eclectic taste and views as I believe they add to the appeal that is me! You know.. that "Je Ne Sais Quoi". Okay for those that may not know what that means it the "appealing quality that cannot be described or expressed" or your mojo. I teach my kids to follow their own paths and to do what feeds their soul and to also make sure they show gratitude to the spiritual realm and our creator. They're also encouraged to seek knowledge so that they can form their own conclusion as to what is best for them. So I'll take the hippie title and my grounding, sea moss eating self and blissfully keep pressing on. 

What are some of your self love practices? Do you follow any rituals that may be considered "new aged"? I recently went to a outdoor festival and noticed that I definitely wasn't alone in my ideas on smudging. Below is a shirt that I thought was super cute as well as a picture of my soon to be 21 year old "hippie" daughter. And that's me in the top... SUN BATHING! You know to get all that good energy and glow from the Sun while she's out and warm. 

Panic in Time Square from a motor cycle backfiring!

A motorcycle backfired triggering panic in Time Square! I understand why people ran however up until a few years ago it was a comical situation you tend to only witness in the hood but the entire country has developed this PTSD associated with the thoughts that at any moment you could be shot for no damn reason. Such a shame that you have to be fearful walking down the damn street now-a-days!
