My Flirty 30

1For my 30th birthday I decided not to throw an extravagant party but to go on vacation instead. I haven’t been on a tropical vacation in a while so picked this opportunity to take a baecation. My trip to Secrets Silversands in Riviera Maya was everything and more. No complaints except for a sunburn…yes black people burn too! Check out some memorable outfit moments (more…)

Heat Wave Hair

How are you guys doing in this heat wave that’s taken over NY?! How is your make-up and hair holding up? I finally tried the halo braid that I mentioned in a previous post here . It is definitely a simple easy hairstyle that I probably will continue throughout the year. There are many different ways to wear it, next time I will add hair for more drama. A little drama ain’t never hurt nobody!

Off to La La Land

It’s that time again for me, vacation time that is… I am going to LA! I am beyond excited as I’ve been dying to go there. I feel like it’s where my next move should be but before I think of moving how about I visit first. So that is what I am doing this week starting tomorrow. I will be in warm weather, with palm trees and relax living.

I am such a beach girl( hence the photo) so I plan on going to Malibu, Santa Monica and Venice beach. I partnered with Home Away as they wanted to know what my beach necessities were.  The list below are the things I bring with me to any beach no matter where I am.  1Besides the beach, I will be a huge tourist and go to all the big places in LA; Beverly Hills, Sunset Blvd. In & Out Burger and Rodeo Drive. If you guys have any tips please share and follow my trip on the gram @thefashionplugblog.

The Red Sole Diary

3So two weeks ago, Valentine’s Day to be exact, my boyfriend surprised me really well. After dinner he surprised me by walking me into the Christian Louboutin store in Meatpacking and telling me to choose whatever shoe I liked. Now this was shocking to me as I didn’t see this coming at all and literally told him 5 minutes prior to that I am going to buy myself a pair. Who knew he had a different agenda after dinner. He told me “Follow me we are going for a walk”. Naturally,  I got the classic patent leather So Kate’s as I always wanted a classic pair and a funky pair of CL’s…. 1 down 1 more to go or so I think, LOL!  After trying them on I realized that these CL’s are seriously not that comfortable. I managed to walk around in the store just fine, but once I got home and tried to break them in I was unsuccessful. Well B-A-B-Y, I thought I had the wrong size because they weren’t as comfy (Trust me, they never are)! After days of carpet walking and googling for assistance I found some helpful tips. (more…)
