Free Books

Over the weekend, I visited my public library. Its been quite a while since I’ve been and actually checked out books. Often, I check out books digitally, and read them on my iPad, but this particular day I wanted to waste some time and decided to see what was new in my library. Two hours and one presentation on American History later, I walked out with these books.

Say Goodbye to Survival Mode by Crystal Paine

Lessons from Madame Chic by Jennifer L. Scott

Unglued by Lysa Terkeurst

A Woman’s Secret for Confident Living by Karol Ladd

The Hip Girls Guide to Homemaking by Kate Payne

I strongly suggest you all go check out your local library and see if there is a program you may be interested in, or to just check out a book! It’s Free!!!! Depending on how many books I get through before it’s time to return them. I plan to do some books reviews and let you all know what I think. 🙂

Easy Breasy

Today was a very long day at the office. Most of you know, I have a nine to five and at times it can be rough. To be able to come home, and do something I actually love, is the best medicine. This blog has serves as an outlet for me, and is becoming one of my favorite pastimes. I honestly don’t think of this as a job, it is really the best hobby ever. Okay, I’m done venting, and thanks for listening.

I hope you all had an amazing Independence Day! In honor of one of my favorite holidays, here is some red, white, and blue.

Summertime Bliss!

Hello Lovelies,

Happy Friday to you all! I hope you all have some fun things scheduled for this weekend. Lately, it feels like I have been living for the weekends. I’m sure most of you know I LOVE SUMMER! The last couple of weekends I have been so busy which is a good thing, only because I love being out and about this time of year, walking around the city, and having dinner on restaurant patios.

One thing I love about this outfit is the shirt tied around the waist. I love this trend! It is so efficient. Once the sun goes down, you have something to cover your arms, and for those of us who need to define our waistline, it acts as a belt.

Deva Curl

Hi Friends,

If you can’t tell, I have curly hair. If you have ever watched my YouTube  Channel you will find a few tips and tricks I use to keep all this hair under control. Recently, I discovered the Deva Curl line, just to let you know in the beginning of this post… the products are amazing! As of now, these are the only products I’ve used from Deva Curl and yes I love both the One Conditioner and the No Poo Shampoo.


A few months ago I decided to try the line, and I loved it. I went through the travel sized products quicker than I would have liked and never purchased them again. Until now, but this time to got the regular size. This buying this product maybe one of the best hair decisions I have ever made. I really like this line it makes washing your hair so easy. Last night I washed my hair and it took all of 30 minutes, this means I got 15 minutes back into my day!!!

Seriously, if you are in the marked for a new shampoo and conditioner you should try these products. After washing my hair it was so soft and so easy to manage.  Detangling, which is usually a chore was so easy.

Hi Friends!

Lately, I had been on the hunt for a new bible. The past couple of years I had been just using my bible app to follow along in church. One morning while doing my daily devotions I needed to look up scripture, when I went to my phone to find what I was studying, I got side tracked and ended up spending the next 15 minutes on Instagram and Snapchat. Once I came to, I decided that I need to have a bible I can touch with my hands, and leave technology out of my quiet time. 

The hunt was on! Of course, I can’t just have a regular brown, possibly leather bible. I needed something that I wanted to sit on my desk or leave on the coffee table. Don’t you know I found exactly what I was looking for.

How cute is this bible! I found it at Barnes and Noble, while shopping I had a few other items I was trying to decided between, when I saw this, I put everything down and went right to check out.

Overall, my theory was right. I am able to have productive bible time when I don’t have any technology near me. I also helps to have a uber cute bible to study.

August 28- Weekly Pins

I love Pinterest! Typically I use Pinterest to get ideas about pretty much EVERYTHING. I pin and research so much stuff on Pinterest. I decided that I would start to share with you all what I have been loving on Pinterest this week. Who knows, it may be something I do on a regular basis. Here we go.

I found this outfit. I love the chambray shirt under this dress. I am pretty sure I will be recreating this outfit this fall.

I am trying to get in my last summer looks before Fall! Something about this big hat just makes me think of the amazing summer heat and trying to keep the beaming sun off.

I have actually be looking for a skirt like this all summer. So coming across it on Pinterest I had to post it. This outfit screams transition to me.

I have been looking for a simple watch with a clean face, when I came across this pin I loved it. I like how the straps are striped.

I love stripes and floral! This is such a light an effortless way to mix prints!
