Scandal Thursdays Anyone?

OMG! Scandal is just one day away are you as excited as I am? Scandal is my absolute favorite fall show and I am just ecstatic that my gladiators will be back on tomorrow. Which brings me to the reason for this post I know everybody celebrates differently but for me Scandal starting up again means that my friends and I no matter how busy our schedules get, commit to getting together once a week to not only watch and commentate on Scandal's twists and shocking turns but also to dish on what's going on in our lives. I host Scandal Thursdays at my house and of course no party is complete without exciting cocktails and tasty appetizers. So if your like me and your hosting a Scandal Party with your favorite people here are a couple drinks that are sure to be a HIT. Also don't be afraid to have fun with your Scandal Party make it a black tie event or any other fun theme you and your friends would enjoy really have fun with your Thursday night I'm sure you all deserve it!

Looks by Lexi (Obsessed With White)

There was a time when white was a color many people, even I would shy away from. That time is now over and I must say I'm loving all the all white monochrome ensembles. I find myself gravitating to everything and anything white every time I go into a store it's the first thing that catches my eye. So I thought I would share my new found love with you guys. I've put together a few looks incorporating some white pieces I've been eyeing lately. I hope you enjoy! Have you been loving this trend? Tell me how you wear it!

& we are "Brunching"

So over the weekend I had the pleasure of attending a wonderful event jam packed with good vibes, good drinks, and a genuine good time. The Beauty Brunch, hosted by the beautiful Shay Lyn of certainly did live up to my expectations. It turned out to be a great way to end the week and definitely a refreshing way to begin a new one. What I enjoyed most about The Beauty Brunch aside from the bottomless mimosas (of course) was seeing a group of black women together all in one room supporting each other no drama just a real chill environment. I also enjoyed the services provided by the ladies of Z Luxury nails they were professional and had a beautiful array of color to choose from for your nail refresh. I loved my 10 minute massage provided by the ladies at Escape Massage Therapy. Also rounding out the itinerary, a make-up presentation & photo booth, everything a girl could ask for even shopping!! With stunning jewels from Stella Dot & drool worthy custom floral headpieces it was truly an experience and you know me I'm a sucker for details I enjoyed the patterned pink straws in my mimosas & the adorable pink serving trays they really added a nice personal touch. I look forward to more events like these where us girls can get together and just really celebrate ourselves. In fact I'm thinking of putting together a similar event. Ive attached a few pictures below so you can see what you missed. Be sure and check out I'm obsessed with this blog you wont be disappointed.

In the past 6 months I've had a variety of different hair styles I chopped it all of & opted for a fade, I dyed it platinum blonde, I've have a chic blonde bob, I've had super long poetic justice braids  & honestly I've has fun with all the extremes  & everything in between. I am now growing it back I'm not sure how long (lol) but for now that's the movement. Cutting my hair I would still say was one of my best decisions. So many of hide behind what society deems beautiful, long hair being one of them. When your hair is short there is nothing to take away from your undeniable beauty. Nothing to distract anyone from the features that make you uniquely you and if your thinking about the jump I would encourage you to take it & experiment with your look until finding what you like best! Wether short or long I'm sure you will rock it!! Here is a few looks I've tried in case you need some inspiration 

Before the big chop

& after 

Platinum blonde 

Loved these but they were ways too heavy!

This bob was amazing !! DO IT!! 

Happy Styling !!

So I have recently gained some weight and haven't been feeling the most comfortable in bodycon dresses which used to be a big fav of mine. I have been more so gravitating toward shift dresses in just about every color and pattern. They still allow me to feel confident and sexy while masking my problem area (my tummy).Channeling my inner Rih-Rih in this look I entitled Rebel. Do you like? I would wear this look to ladies night or date night it's glamorous enough for the girls but still sexy for a night out with your special someone. Also I've been really into dark lips, makes me feel so bad ass! How do you guys style your shift dresses?

Friday where art thou?

Lately my life has been pretty hectic and Friday nights haven't been coming soon enough. Last Friday I got to enjoy a night out complete with cocktails and lots of laughs. I got a chance to wear my Palm Tree Dress from Asos (of course) that I LOVE. I wasn't sure how I would style it but I decided on wearing it with my neon pumps and a deep red lip. I've been really enjoying "Diva" from MAC especially with my new blonde mane! How have you guys been celebrating the end of your work week?

Unicorn Nation!!

When I saw this shirt appear on Asos naturally I had to have it because it basically spoke my life!! I styled it here with my new Zara heels & go to Aldo clutch. I love how this look is more relaxed but still polished & playful. I hope you enjoy!

Print x Print

There are just some trends you can only wish companies would make in plus size, a printed short set used to be apart of that list for me until of course Asos to the rescue. I eyed this short set for a few weeks before finally deciding to make the purchase at 4am in the morning (peak online shopping hours) of course. Boy am I glad I made the purchase because it sold out the same day I received mine in the mail. It's beautiful in person the colors are nice and bright right on trend for spring & it soooo comfortable definitely the kind of outfit that will be worn over and over again. I styled it with a statement necklace & a fun clutch I snagged from Francesca's on sale earlier this year. I'm also rocking a blonde bob right now inspired by Malaysia from Basketball Wives and I'm loving it! Its so fun! Hope you guys enjoy the look.

I think we all can agree that sometimes your just not in the mood to "dress up" but of course we still wanna look sleek, stylish, and put together. Statement pieces like a necklace, pair of shoes, or bag are the perfect accessories to jazz up an otherwise simple outfit. I'm into bold necklaces lined with colorful gems and sparking rhinestones or a chic chunky gold or silver necklace. They can seriously add something special to even the most "boring" of outfits. I wanna share with you a few of the necklaces that I've been eyeing lately to add to my collection, especially for the upcoming spring and summer months. I also included how I would style just a regular pair of jeans blazer and t-shirt with the right statements pieces the outfit feels a lot more fashion forward. Hope you enjoy!!

Cobalt Blue X Orange

Eloquii as promised have released new items its been about two weeks since the company's return and they are right on trend with their stunning new look book "Orange is the New Black". Orange will be a spring and summer staple. I've chosen three items that I'm in love with from their new collection and how I would style them. The first being their Slim fit blue plants. I love colbalt blue it is such a striking spring hue and Eloquii has perfected the curvy girl pant. They fit like a glove I styled the pants below in my "Day Date Look". The Second item is this beautiful printed skirt I love prints I mean who doesn't? So when saw this skirt naturally my eye gravitated toward it. It's a pencil skirt made from a Scuba Material. I styled it below in my look tiltled "Orange is the New Black". Last but not least this gorgeous printed illusion dress I just love the combination of the Coral and the different blues. I think the dress would be flattering on any figure. I hope you enjoy all these looks and be sure to check out if you haven't already I'm loving the direction they're taking us in.

Cosmo O'clock

Awhile back I did a post on my favorite local Happy Hour spots I've since then discovered a couple more places that I'd like to share with you. if you know me you know I love a good Martini and I'm always on the hunt to try new ones.

First up on the list is Vito's By the Park their Happy Hour is Mon-Fri from 4-8 it's nice and long in case you want to go home and freshen up after work. The decor is warm and welcoming the place has a real rustic vibe with exposed brick walls and white table cloths.Their happy hour features a signature Martini that they choose each day for just dollars (my kinda price point). I've tried a variety of different ones from Pear Mango to an Apple Spice they are all delicious. If your not a Martini drinker like myself they have select wines and beers for five dollars as well. Their specialty pizzas like the Shrimp and Gorgonzola or the Chicken and Pesto are just eight dollars you get a 12 inch pie large enough to share or have leftovers for lunch the next day. Rounding off their Happy Hour their famous mini meatball sliders which are to die for. The staff is also very nice and attentive which is always a plus. Vito's is sure to become one of your favorite spots.

Next on the list Feng Asian Bistro the Menu is quite unique with wonderful little twists on familiar favorites. You will truly enjoy this experience their Happy Hour is short and sweet from 4-6 M-F. Their Happy Hour Menu features select wines by the glass for 4 dollars, Well drink for 5 dollars (vodkas,gin,rum,whiskey) & of course some delicious MartiniZ. "The Feng Shui" is my favorite composed of coconut rum, melon liqueur, sour mix & pineapple juice it's a vacation in a glass trust me you won't be disappointed. My favorites from their food menu include the shrimp shumai (delicious steamed shrimp dumplings) you get 3 for just two dollars (can't beat it). The Angry Dragon roll my other fav which features Spicy King Crab, Spicy Tuna, Shrimp Tempura and Kani, papaya Soy Nori, Eel Sauce and Rutta sauce. This Happy Hour will certainly satisfy any palette.

I hope you enjoy these places as much as I do &  feel free to share with me you favorite Happy Hour Spots.

New Shoes?

What better to go with new shoes than a new dress. I've seen this one at Forever 21 for quite sometime now. It has always caught my eye but some how never made its way into the fitting room with me. Yesterday was my lucky day I tried it on and it looked so good I was upset I hadn't tried it sooner. The fit of the dress is perfect hugs the right places and is forgiving in the tummy area (my problem area). I paired it with my new shoes from Asos get them here. I really like how the look came out I would wear this out to drinks, on date night or even out to party!
