Women With Vision 2017

Happy New Year dolls!! 2017 is here and already off to a EPIC start!

 This is my first post of the New Year here on the blog and I wanted to kick things off with a recap of the vision board event I co-hosted at my house #DiamondDomaine this weekend. Along with my friend Keisha, we hosted 10 amazing women. It was an epic day of food, fun, laughs, great conversation, fellowship, networking, and encouragement. I wouldn't change one thing about the event as it was just perfect. 

I feel our community is so much stronger when we come together to support one another. I couldn't be prouder that this is exactly what happened Saturday. We talked about finding love, starting families, faith, moving boldly towards our dreams, gratitude, and even home decor. These beautiful ladies set their intentions, visualized their goals and set actionable steps to move towards achieving them in 2017. I am honored to know each and everyone of them and grateful to support and have their support with achieving all my 2017 goals! 

What are some of your goals for 2017 and who do you look to to keep you accountable and focused on them?? I would love to hear all about them down below in the comments! 

Thank you so much for your continued support and be sure to follow the blog so you don't miss all the great content I have planned for this year!!

xoxo,

Christmas Home Decor 2016










 Tree and all tree accoutraments are from Michael's
Stockings and gift boxes are from Target


Hi friends!! Oh how I've missed you, I've just been working and living! Super excited for the new year, and so very excited about the progress I've bene making around the house!

As a new home owner I couldn't be more excited to decorate for Christmas this year. Like, I COULD.NOT.WAIT! I had dreams and a very clear vision of this glorious candy cane tree I wanted this year and I couldn't be happier with the results. I am still a long way from being done decorating my entire house but having my tree up is just so perfect. Everything on the tree came from Michael's including the tree which I got on super sale after Thanksgiving! Talk about hype.

Please enjoy these pics and I wish each and every one of you a very happy holiday!

A Whole New Adventure

TOP: J.O.A via Nordstrom sold out but LOVE this one  | PANTS: Ann Taylor | SANDALS: Steve Madden, flat version HERE | WATCH: Fossil, similar HERE

Happy Monday loves! This Monday I am excited and motivated for the new adventures on the horizon. God has been speaking to me and leading me in directions I've been too afraid to move towards in the past. HE sends signs, people and opportunities to you in more ways then one. If you're someone as stubborn as I am you need a HUGE sign like this telling you to go BOLDLY towards new adventures and I am finally listening!

I will say however, I am posting these pics becuase of the wall. I was not in love with these photos and didn't want to post them but this mural/ message is just all too fitting for this season of my life. Thank you to those who continue to support me in one way or another, I appreciate you and value you immensely!

 I want to hear below how  you are moving towards your goals and embracing new Adventures boldly.

Beauty: Favorite Red Lipsticks for WOC


Happy Monday Loves! I'm super excited to start this week off with this post about my fav red lipsticks. I am no stranger to rocking an old NASTY red lip! I jump at the chance to do so but I understand how difficult it can be for ladies of color to find the RIGHT shade. Not all red shades are created equally for us brown beauties. I have compiled a list of my favs that I'm sure to compliment our skin tone. Here are a few tips I have for picking the right shade.

1. Know your undertones. Do you have cool or warm undertones, are you more yellow tint or red? In MAC foundation are you an NC or NW? Knowing the answer to those questions will help you immensely on your search. Certain reds work with certain undertones.


2. Start cheap. I am a firm believer in practicing with lower end brands before you splurge on the expensive stuff. I don't know about you but I feel a LOT better about wasting 6 bucks over 32 bucks! Once you know what color works for you in lower end brands there is ALWAYS a higher end dupe.



3. Experiment with Finishes. This is totally preference but you might be surprised at how different a matte red looks on you rather than a glossy red. I'm a fan of both however I live for a non-drying matte lip.



4. HAVE FUN. I will say this until the cows come home, it's just makeup....have fun with it!! Seriously. Don't be scared to rock a red lip. No it's not reserved just for date night. I refuse to be put in a box like that. Have fun with your red lip and be fearless dolls!

What are some of your favorite red lippies? I want to hear down below, I'm always down to try some new shades!
