Life Lately “Bae Where you at?”

Shot-73Disclaimer: This post is not a relationship post – so sorry no tea here!  The revolution will not be televised.

The past few weeks have been a little all over the place – but I’ve been enjoying every minute of it.

As you know I have a 9-5 in HR — I recently got more responsibilities added to my plate (promotion), which I am very happy about – because I’ve prayed for this. Most of my work days I’m stuck at my desk going through my list of things to do. When I come home I’m dog tired and I don’t even want to look at the computer so it’s been difficult to get blog post together.

Even though I’m not rolling out blog post – I do take notes in my phone when I’m waiting or in the few spare moments that I do get.

When I’m not working I’m enjoying my summer to the fullest – from late night dinner dates with the girls, to hanging around the house to even doing an adult thing and joining a book club! I can honestly say that the group of friends I have around me right now are absolutely amazing! They keep me grounded, cheer me up and support me like I’ve never knew to be true. You guys can thank them for the title of this blog — hilarious inside joke!

I moved and I had been preparing myself mentally for this new place. I want to make sure that everything is in order (as much as I can control) and this place is reflective of me and where I’m at in my life. The décor shopping process was just that a process – so be prepared for me to share some of things that I found out along my journey.

As for things to come, I have so much hope for the future – new opportunities, new partnerships and growing through it all.

For my tried and true followers – I’m still here! I have a few things coming up and hope that you surely enjoy it, if not be sure that you give me your feedback.

Tre Chic | Military Green Moment

Shot-51

Military green or Olive green has been recently catching my eye. It started with some work pants from New York and Company and then it proceeded into a swing dress from Target and now this green skirt.

Shopping Target’s clearance rack is a labor of love. I’ve learned that if you go first thing in the mornings everything is pretty organized, but later afternoons – good luck. During a random shopping trip – when I wasn’t suppose to be shopping for clothes – I found this gem on the clearance rack for only $9.99. I couldn’t pass it up!

I decided to pair it with this off the shoulder top that I also found on the clearance racks at Target last summer and my favorite heels right now, from Fabrik (also featured in my Spring shoe guide).  The options with this skirt is endless, because there are so many colors that you could pair with it.

I always like to visualize the different options I have when I purchase an item. This one I thought of date night, girls night, or even out being cute.

** since the top that I’m wearing is no long available – here are three other options that would just look equally great with the skirt

I haven’t worn a wrap skirt in years, probably since I was 10 years old and this one is perfect for the Spring and Winter months. The sales girl definitely hyped me up when I was trying this outfit on and they were right. I couldn’t wait to wear it to the office.  This exact skirt is sold out but I’ve linked below a few that are worthy of purchasing.

Summer Must Have | Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel lotion

In my book Memorial Day is the unofficial kick off to Summer –  beach vacations, BBQ’s, Festivals, and pool days are here! To keep my skin glowing and protected – sunscreen is necessary. Yes black women do tan and can get sun burnt – trust me I’m speaking from experience.

I was excited to get to work with Neutrogena again. This time show casing their Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen lotion.

Sun screen shouldn’t only be worn when you are hanging out by the pool or at the beach, but during all of your summer activities – biking, running, or even playing with the kids.
