Anyway....

Hey luvs, sorry for the lack of posts this week but I have been beyond busy and feeling a bit disorientated and displaced....that's what moving does to you I guess. Anyway,  just wanted to share with you a few of the things I'm currently obsessed with and a few words of wisdom that is posted on my fridge and keeps things in perspective for me when I start to feel unbalanced or overwhelmed.
ANYWAY
People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of ulterior motives. 
Do good anyway. 
If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies. 
Succeed anyway. 
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. 
Do good anyway. 
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. 
Be honest and frank anyway. 
People favor underdogs, but follow only top dogs. 
Fight for some underdog anyway. 
What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. 
Build anyway. 
People really need help, but may attack you. 
Help people anyway. 
Give the world the BEST you have, and you'll be kicked in the teeth. 
Give the world the BEST you've got ANYWAY. 
 The bright and colorful hues that are flooding my closet as of yet....can't wait to rock them all...but for now they go in a box!

Some new makeup to play around in soon including the new color tattoo eyeshadows from Mabelline. A few sweaters from the GAP perfect for layering and luxe accessories that will glam up my winter wardrobe while in the chocolate city! After hearing so many great things about the new Commander in Chic book I had to pick it up. I LOVES my First Lady....she is bomb.com! Have a great weekend!!
XOXO,

Pop of Mustard

Hey loves, almost forgot about these pics I took on Sunday to get my praise on at church. I opted for my fav new color combo once again and kept the rest fairly simple. I'm still loving this hair and everywhere I go I get tons of compliments on it. YAY! So in other news it looks like I just might miss Fashion Week this go round because of the move. If I get a moment I will surely try to sneak on up to NYC but its really not lookin so good. :-( Thank GOD they have it twice a year! Have a terrific Tuesday lovelies! XOXO
Be sure to check out my latest video!! Went a lil bananas at Bath & Body Works...hehehe

Back to the Basics

Hey lovelies, hope you all had a fabulous weekend, for some its a long weekend so be safe. Just wanted to leave with you a quick outfit post from my weekend. Saturday I went to a fashion show supporting a local lingerie designer, Tracy Wafer. The show was nice and a great accomplishment for the designer, so great to see people pursuing and fulfilling their dreams. She did a lovely job with the production and I had a good time with my girls. My time is winding down here so I'm trying to enjoy these lovely ladies I have come to call my friends as much as possible. We took in the show that served great food, drinks, art and very sexy lingerie. Then we ended the night at a club where we pretty much laughed all night till it hurt! lol, Good times indeed. To say the least I was totally not in the mood to spend more than 2 seconds in my closet so I decided to take it back to the basics and opted for a classic and comfortable yet chic look with a pop of pink.
 Oh and I decided to die my hair the Ombre effect with this new install dolls.....whatcha think??             I LOVE IT!

Jeans and a Tee

Hey dolls, so just a quick and simple outfit post today. Went to have dinner and drinks with some friends and old co-workers last night and had the bestest time! Good laughs and great conversation was just what I needed after being cooped up at home with just me and The Dutchess. Surely the thing I miss most about my old job is the interaction with people and comradery amongst such great folks. Decided to go super casual and rock my new FAV jeans (don't worry I've washed them in between the repeated use ;-D) and not so plain tee. Have a lovely day dolls oh and don't forget your best accessory ever.....your SMILE!! 
DUECES!

FAV Fall Color Combo

Hey lovelies, Happy Hump Day to ya! So my new Fall color combo is Cobalt Blue and Gold....seriously obsessed! I wore this outfit to check out the new Tyler Perry play, The Haves and the Have Nots, that opened here in Shreveport (of all places) last night. I love the arts and theater is my fav so when any show of significance comes to town I'm all over it. It was my first TP play and it had me in stitches, soooo funny, definitely go check it out when it comes your way dolls.

So when I purchased these Fendi's this summer I simply loved them but wasn't sure how much use I would get out of them or how versatile they would be with my wardrobe but they are quickly becoming a FAV.  So much so I braved the rain in these suede beauties .....no worries No Fendi's were harmed. I loved how they went so well with my new blue pants scored from Ann Taylor last week 50% off!! woop woop!  The bad thing about working from home is its pretty easy for me to take shopping breaks....especially since Ann Taylor and Target are almost within walking distance to me. SMH Trying to tell myself the more crap I buy means the more crap I must pack. Uggggh! Packing has got to be one of my least favorite activities in the world, right up there with unpacking, washing dishes and folding laundry. I hate sticking my hands in dirty, greasy water and how dry they make my hands afterwards and folding laundry is so annoying and meticulous since I still fold like I'm in basic training! SN: I LOVE to vacuum and mop my floors something about the lines in my carpet and the smell of Lavender Pine Sol makes me smile....but I digress.  Hope you enjoy dolls and as always thanks so much for visiting my blog and supporting my random rants. Love ya!!
XOXO,
NajaDiamond

Rolling in the Deep

Just a quick outfit of the day, what I wore to run some errands yesterday. I have literally been living in these jeans since I picked them up at the GAP last week. I will admit I don't leave the house very often lately as I work from home and have been packing and filming videos a lot lately but when I do these are just so comfy to throw on and jet out the door. The "mall" or as I like to call it 'The Flea Market' here in Shreveport is a pitiful little place but I do manage to find some nice pieces at GAP and Dillard's from time to time. Oh and how FAB is this faux shearling aviator coat I snagged from Target for a mere 24.99!! I am desperately hoping the temperatures will get low enough to wear it otherwise I'd have to save it for DC.......my future home! Can't wait! In the meantime I will enjoy the 75 degree weather and last opportunities to rock open toe shoes. Have a lovely day dolls!
XOXO, 
NajaDiamond
