Latest & Greatest from Little Ol’ Me

More than halfway through 2017. Absolutely nothing has gone as planned…and I am truly the happiest I’ve ever been. There’s a saying that says, “everything happens for a reason” and quite frankly, I’ve been finding purpose behind every challenge I’ve face thus far, this year.

I took a short break from blogging, not because I wanted to (I love writing, sharing awesome experiences in cute outfits I mean, common…what girl doesn’t) but because I have been focused on much bigger goals for myself and my future that I can’t share just yet – but will very shortly love to!

One positive thing I will share is an amazing opportunity that was presented to me by Naples Daily News (our Naples local newspaper) and USA Today. On MONDAY August 28th, I will be sharing all that can be done in Naples, FL with only $100. This is going to be great exposure for me, and I am truly honored and beyond thankful that I was selected for such a great project.

On the other hand, now that summer is coming to an end, I wanted to share the last blog post I was SUPPOSED to be sharing until my life really got hectic. I haven’t even shared any of my Mexico trip details, I was there for nearly 2 weeks!

This was shot in one of my favorite places in Miami, The Design District. Fashion is art, so I was happy to hear all of the great feedback when I was walking around to take photos. I’m glad other people notice I have an eye for things! I paired this funky, back & white Victoria Beckham skirt with a bikini top.

Trust me, you would have been in a bathing suit it was SO hot! This is a typical Miami pool party ootd. Gals usually like to add some style even though they will be poolside, which I love! The whole shabang, hair, make-up & heels.

I have so much more to share! Please follow me on Instagram to be up to date with the latest and greatest going on in my little world! God bless you all ❤

What to Expect on Your First Time Getting Eyelash Extensions

FullSizeRender 68Eyelash extensions have gradually grown become the new trend since lip fillers. If you have never gotten lash extensions, I’ve put all the deets on everything you need to know before booking an appointment. Everyone from Kylie Jenner to myself, to an executive business woman has found having lash extensions much more convenient and here’s why…

Convenience: The first reason us gals like to have extensions on our lashes is because it  saves a lot of time from our morning routine. No mascara needed. You are ready to be on-the-go everyday.

Cost: I know so many people who think lashes are way too expensive but that’s really not the case. There are great places like Amazing Lash Studio who have a great full set lash price of only $80 compared to others who start at $150. They have so many locations across the U.S so be sure to look one up near you!

How it feels: Be aware, that you will need to have your eyes closed for about 1 to 2 hours depending on your lash stylist’s experience. That was very uncomfortable for me at first. Especially when it came to the lash stylist taping a gel pad they place under your eye. I found that relaxing was just the best way to get through it and now I don’t even think about it!

The Experience: I think the environment and setting of the lash studio you go to, matters. Amazing Lash does it so well! Check out their waiting room, isn’t it gorgeous? This is what makes them unique, I’ve never seen a lash studio so well put together. Not only that but my lash stylist, Liana, educated me on how to maintain the lashes after we’ve left the studio. Typically you’re supposed to have them done every 2 weeks.

Here is a close up of my after pic…(Did you know eyelash extension appointments = free naps? I had just woken up from mine as you can probably tell)
