Florida Winter Weather

image

So I live in Florida. Yeah I know, lol. We don’t get a real winter. We get the it might be chilly, it will probably rain sometime during the day, oh and it might get hot mid day but Merry Christmas Lmao.

image

So we get to wear things like shorts and sweaters cause were so confused sometimes we just prepare for everything or at least I do. HA!

image

But I love this Cowlneck Sweater from Macy’s. The color is awesome and it’s soft and comfy. I like it because I’m not a huge turtleneck kinda girl (I feel like I’m being suffocated and not in the good way :0/)

image

The color matched perfectly with my boots from Traffic Shoes and Wrap Sweater from Billabong. A tan match made in heaven lol.

I hope your winter is going great. Do you have any weird weather issues where you live?

Holiday Love

image
I hope everyone had a great holiday. I love the colors Red and Black. My favorite by far. So naturally those were my Christmas colors by choice.
image
image

What better with a feminine outfit to add a bit of a rocker edge so I’m able to keep up with the tiny tots as they run around with new toys then black boots lol. I love tulle skirts. If I could wear one everyday I would lol. Short, long, with T-shirts, button downs, crop tops, heels, boots, flats; doesn’t matter.
image

I hope you enjoyed this holiday ootd as much as I did. I think pairing it with a simple winged eyeliner and red lips was the perfect holiday look.

Fixie Girl

image

I love my fixie. Since I’ve gotten it I ride it everyday. So when I found the company Gear Fixie it was a given that I would buy a shirt lol. They are affordable and comfortable shirts.

image

This Fixie shoot was fun. Just a little mini shoot to show off the new shirt and my bike with the new rim color on it.

image

My bike was a gift and was built by Tour Vintage. I love it. It’s tailored for me and my comfort zone. I can feel myself building strength when I ride it. I love the colors, the design, just everything about it. I highly suggest buying one of your own. They are amazing.

Health and Fitness: Jillian Michael’s 7 day Detox and Cleanse

image

I figured I would do a new post segment since I have started biking daily. I want to get healthier but I don’t want to lose weight I actually want to gain it lol. So I thought I would start posting what I’m doing to stay healthy, fit and get to my goal weight of 150lbs. Yes you read that correct, lol. I’m currently at 136lbs.

So let’s begin with an experience I had with a cleanse pill I tried to rid my body of toxins and start clean when I started to quit smoking. I’m currently at 60 days plus a non smoker :0).

Day one

Morning (9:30 am)

I took two of the pills this morning. I started after my morning coffee. I added a bit less sugar to that as well. I had fruit this morning for breakfast and also took my biotin vitamin. I drank a full 23 oz bottle of Smart water.

Let me also note that while starting this detox and cleanse I was still a smoker. I started quitting the day I started the detox. Less cigs everyday to start quitting completely. Was the end goal for me.

I used the bathroom about 10 minutes after starting. Nothing crazy just the norm. Went on about my day. I was also doing 2 sets of 20 sit ups in the am and 2 sets at night.

80 sit ups a day may not sound like a lot. But I don’t believe in rushing to do a full football workout when your just starting to get back in the groove of working out. It will just discourage and overwhelm you and you ultimately end up quitting your routine shortly afterward.

Evening (6:30pm)

Took my last two pills of the day. Ate dinner. Chicken, corn and homemade mashed potatoes. Did my 40 sit-ups for the night. Felt more energized before bed. Nothing crazy like bouncing off the walls lol but not sluggish or heavy in away.

Day 2

Morning (9:00am)

Took two of the pills and my biotin vitamin and then did my regular sit-up routine. Everything is the same as yesterday. Had more fruit, coffee and water for breakfast.

I don’t feel as sluggish as I normally do. That could be because my system is getting cleaned out. That’s always a good thing.

Evening (6:30pm)

Took my two pills. Ate dinner and relaxed. Boneless seasoned ribs, rice and broccoli. Trying to make sure there is vegetables and starch in the meal. Peed a few times before bed. Did my sit-up routine right before bed. Noticing that I am feeling more energized especially at night time.

Day 3

Morning (8:37)

Took 2 pills and biotin. Ate breakfast. Did my sit up routine. Had a cup of coffee and used the restroom as normal this morning. My core area is very sore today but I’m assuming that is from my body getting use to the exercise. Which is good right? No pain no gain lol.

In the afternoon around 1:30-2pm instead of eating candy or something unhealthy for a snack/lunch I had a Clif Bar in crunchy peanut butter and some Yogi kava stress relief tea. I used 2 bags for a stronger flavor.

Evening (7:00pm)

Took my two pills for the night. Are dinner and had some hot tea. Did my last 40 sit-ups for the night and I feel more energized still. Not sluggish and tired. Didn’t feel super sluggish all day. Took a 10 minute nap on accident lol but other than that the day went by smoothly.

Day 4

Morning (8:00am)

Took my pills as normal. Kinda busy morning so I skipped breakfast (bad I know). Ran my errands and then ate lunch at around 12 noon.

Evening (11:00am)

Took pills waayyy later than usual. Nothing different changed.

Now I missed like 1 morning and 1 evening but other than that I took them as directed.

Day 5-7

Pretty much the same routine. In the end result I lost 10 pounds on accident. I was told that this was not a weight loss pill so I took it thinking that I would just get rid of some excess water weight and possibly some bloating and that I would be a bit more regular and used to drinking more water.

Needless to say I didn’t even finish the entire thing. I stopped once I realized I lost so much weight and that it was doing the complete opposite of what I thought it would be doing. This may not be the case for everyone but for me it was and I hated it lol. So I say use this pill at your own risk. You may or may not lose weight and if it’s what you want great, if not don’t do it lol.

Well that’s it for my review, until next time have a great week.

My Top 6 Fall/Winter Nail Colors

I figured I would pick 6 fall/Winter nail colors that I was absolutely loving. I hate uneven numbers so naturally I rounded up one. HA! Anyway, I love black, nude and grey. Those are my all time favorites for fall or any season really, so I figured I would pick some of those colors as well as a few others I have been loving on my nails this season.
image

First we have this red with a touch of black. Both these colors are kind of sheer so if you want true to bottle color I suggest 2 coats of these. Here I only have one coat for each color. It is Wet N Wild polish in I Red A Good Book and Ebony Hates Chris
image

I’m in love with this matte grey color. The polish dries matte so if you want it shiny I suggest letting it dry fully and then using a shiny top coat because I notice if you paint clear over it to quickly the matte seeps through in some areas. It is SinfulColors polish in My Turn
image

This color is a little more edgy. It’s very dark but it’s not exactly black it’s more of a purple ink black. This one dries slightly shiny and I added another coat of clear for more shine. This is SinfulColors in Inkwell
image

Now there had to be a nude color in here of course because I love my nude everything (no pun intended, lol) I have a nude color that’s my all time favorite which is SinfulColors in Vacation Time but I thought I would try a new one to see if I can find a new love. It’s a bit of a nude orange color like an autumn leaf. This one is SinfulColors in Bellini
image

Then of course the color of the season seems to be a color that was tabu after Labor Day for years but I’ve always wondered why because it’s so awesome when done right, lol. That color is of course white and these nails are White Hot! This is SinfulColors in Snow Me White.
image

Finally this is a color that’s all over in fall. Whether it’s in the leaves or an outfit. Gold is like a staple in my wardrobe now for fall. Plus it looks great with tan skin. So this color was a really pretty gold I picked up. It’s SinfulColors in Gold Medal.
image

Well ladies those are my top 6 nail colors for the fall/winter. Hope you enjoyed this post and try some or all of the colors. There are a lot of sales going on in Walgreens and CVS on makeup and nail polish so now is the perfect time to grab some new colors. (Any excuse to shop right ladies, lol)

Unexpected Find

image

This outfit was actually planned around my skirt. I actually had this for well over 3 months before I actually decided to wear it lol. I passed by it like 4 times in the thrift store before I actually got it. Then I just went for it. Thinking “Well if I don’t wear it I can always just donate it again lol.”

So here we are 4 months later. I needed something to wear to run some errands and do some shopping. I wanted to be pulled together but comfortable. So I pulled out this skirt and paired it with my Forever 21 bodysuit and thrifted tan vest (I’m obsessed with thrifting) and put on my moccasins my grandma got me a few years ago from I believe she said JCPENNYS or Macys one or the other.

image

The skirt is really flowy and breathable and I love the pattern. A good find all together I think though. Well that’s the whole outfit. I wish my day was as easy as this outfit was to put together lol. I hope you are all having a beautiful week. I’m sick in bed today but at least I got in a bike ride this morning lol.

Thrifty Thursdays

image

Hello Dolls. Ok so I know today isn’t Thursday but this outfit was from Thursday so it sort of counts , lol. So anyone who knows me, knows I love thrifting. The excitement you get when you find a bargain or that perfect one of a kind piece. Especially for DIY projects (which I love by the way).

image

So I happened upon this skirt the other day and thought it was so cute. I grabbed it not even knowing what I would pair it with lol.

image

I mixed prints and materials a little on this one and loved the outcome. Some stripes and a little jean. It came out pretty cute. I will definitely post some DIY and more of my thrift finds.
