H3o Benefit concert for Hurricane Harvey




It’s been six weeks since Harvey turned the streets of Houston into rivers, homes and business flooded. It rained non stop for 5 days. I know most of you are hurricane Harvey updated out and you pretty much have read all there is to read. And quite frankly the experience was such an out of body experience that I really don’t have a choice but to make this short and to the point. 

Harvey humbled me. The out pouring support the city of Houston received was moving. I had the greatest honor of attending the H3o benefit concert put together by the IT PR and one of the most kind, hardworking and inspiring women I know Latorria of Lemon Lime Light media. It was hosted by Cynthia Bailey star of the biggest housewives franchise Real Housewives of Atlanta and her sister Maroley. Cast mates such as Porsha Williams, Shamea  were also in attendance as the camera crew for the show were taping the event.  Victims of hurricane Harvey were also in attendance and all the proceeds for the night went to helping those affected. 

With so much going on in the world now it is comforting to know that despite our differences in culture, ethnicity, race all that ceases to matter and we come together in the name of humanity. Thank you so much Latorria, for allowing me to be a part this event for a great cause. I continue to pray for those affected with hurricanes in the islands, Puerto Rico, Miami and the victims of the senseless shooting in Vegas. 

Enjoy pictures from the event bellow. Thank you so much for stopping by

Fux Fur x Tulle


My weekend was very eventful. I drove to Dallas with my daughter to visit family and boy did I need it. I realized that I have been so caught up with work and forget that unwinding and recharging especially with family is necessary. And that is exactly what I did. Unwinded! 

Went out with my little cousin for a friends birthday and let's just say It was Lit! lol. I had literally not been out to the club since September of last year. But then again that is now actually not on the top of the list of things I enjoy doing. I am more of a home body, drink a glass of wine, binge watch Netflix, play and color with my daughter kind of girl. I also love to dress up, put fits together and lately I have been finding myself altering clothing  I have not worn in over a year .( more options and more use for my coin) And by altering I mean cutting clothing up no fancy sowing machine needed here. Hahahhaa

Which brings me to today's post. I absolutely love fur, any type really. Something about it that will turn any outfit into a glamorous affair. The top I have one was actually part of a dress I bought from misguided back in 2015. I only wore the dress once or twice, so I figured why not cut it; use safety pins to hold it in place and wear it as a crop top. I paired it with this sheer tulle skirt, and a long denim jacket for an edgy vibe. 

I hope you like how the look come together. Love you for reading.

Little Red Dress



I get asked a lot on how I juggle being a mother, work and blog. The truth is sometimes I ask myself that too. But I believe you make time for the things you love. I sometimes well most times work a 12 hour night shift, (Am a nurse by the way) get off, go home do my makeup and shoot. I however, shoot a minimum of 3 looks with each shoot that way I just post through out the week. 




This was the case with this little Red number. And yes I wore miss match socks because I somehow packed one of each when I really meant to pack two pairs so I could have options. Well as you can see, I ended up not having any options. I did not like the look without the sock trend so I figured I will make my own trend hahahaha( lies you tell yourself to rationalize things) The cone was an impromptu idea, my dress matched it's color so I figured why not stand next to it. 



Hope you like how the look come together. How do you guys make time for things you are passionate about? Love you for reading
