Mustard & Leopard : Date Night Style

Hey guys!

I am soo0 late getting this post live. It’s been such a busy fun packed weekend, I was never home long enough to get my act together until now. Today is rest day, for tomorrow I go back to work! Today’s look is perfect for date night.  Funny I would even pick this topic since it’s been so long since I’ve been on a date that I can hardly remember what those are! LOL Anyone else going through the same dry spell? Please don’t tell me I’m all alone in this! For first dates especially, it’s important to keep it simple, classy yet subtly sexy. Leave something to the imagination but show him what you’re working with, a bit, with a nice pair of distressed skinny jeans that hug in all the right places! Ladies, show him what all these months of squats and deadlifts at the gym have gotten you! WINK WINK 🙂 This is also where any portofino top from Express comes in, they give your denim a nice dressed up vibe paired with a hot pair of heels. Don’t make them too high though, unless you’re use to walking in 5 inch heels because the last thing you want to do in front your potential beau is stumble or fall. GASP! Leopard is always a great mix with mostly any pattern or color top.  Here’s hoping that 2016 ends our dating dry spell and may we all find a handsome and nice hunk of a man to have many a date night with! Cheers to us friends!

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!

TGIF!

By the end of today, I will literally have 17 days left to the school year. I’m beyond excited! I see an abundance of “me” time, girl time and single girl time in the near future! I’ll probably spend the first week being the biggest bum you’ve ever seen LOL (DJM). Today’s look features this cool graphic tee I got from the Natural Hair Expo I blogged about here.  What is Black Girl University you ask?  It’s educating yourself about your roots (your hair roots that is!).  This whole revolution of women, specifically black women falling in love with their hair for the first time is fairly new. For years we have always gotten the message from outside and from within that our kinky, curly, coily hair wasn’t straight enough, long enough, or silky enough and we brought into it HEAVY.  Obsessed with perms, hot combing, flat ironing…you name it, we’ve done it… from weaves and beyond. I’m sure all women can relate to some extent, especially those of you who have naturally curly hair. Wash day alone is a cumbersome task OMG! Having to wash thick curly hair is no joke.  Black women are and have become much more educated about our natural hair and many are proud to rock it in all it’s glory. My journey has been a process as well, I’m still learning so much about my hair and what it likes and dislikes (yes, she has a mind of her own!).  No two heads of hair are alike but whether your coils are loose or tightly wound…we are all becoming BGU graduates with a new-found degree in self-love!

Kisses! Besos! Bisous!
