Red, Green and Neutral

Hey guys,I was on a mini vacay in Miami and as a certified Miami heat/ Lebron James hater disliker, I was a bit pissed that I was in town the weekend they had just won the NBA championship.To make matters worse, the victory parade went right past our front porch *eyeroll*. In all, Miami was fun and I definitely had a great time. 
These are pictures from my last day in the city.

D.I.Y: Colored Bottles

I had been looking for a way to display my bangles when i saw this bottle idea somewhere online.To add color,I decided to spray paint my bottles so they could serve as a decor for my vanity as well. The spray paints were purchased from Home Depot and cost $3.98-$4.98 each .From gorgeous pastels to neons and even metallics, it was a hard trying to decide which colors to get. After much deliberation, I settled for neon pink, grape and lime.

I think I am going back to the store for the teal and aubergine color, and spray everything in sight, lol. What do you guys think,will you be trying it out?                                     Have a fantastic weekend.

Girl With Curves

I have been visiting Tanesha's blog for about a year and each time, i am awed by her chic and classy style. Tanesha is the queen of 'effortless chic' and i love that her style is relate-able.I was really excited she agreed to be featured here and i had to stop myself from posting every picture on her blog here.Here is what Tanesha had to say about her style.
Tanesha says:
My style is classic with a twist on trend.  I started Girl with Curves as a creative outlet, but it's turned into a mission for change.  I want to change the lives of women through fashion- by showing my fellow curvy girls that you can learn to love the body you're in, dress it beautifully, and be just as fashionable as any other fashionista. Girl with Curves offers outfit inspiration, style and shopping advise to the curvy community.  

            One day i am going to sneak into her closet and steal EVERYTHING!!
Can't get enough of this gorgeousness?check out her blog here
