Sheer madness 


Sheer clothing is a huge trend for fall, hell Kim Kardashian has practically been walking around LA almost naked these last few weeks. But this trend can be really scary for anyone plus size or just not comfortable with their body! I wanted to try this trend for a while now but I’ll be honest was too afraid to rock it. Thinking I couldn’t pull it off. Then I realized that being afraid to rock this trend was sheer madness ! So, I just decided to say F what everyone says, F the “rules” and F what society thinks about being proud of your body as plus size women. Let me tell you this is one of my fave looks to date! I feel confident, sexy and chic. Plus I realized that the biggest critic I have was the one in my own head. So go out there, be confident and rock this trend no matter what shape or size you are:)

Pajama Rama 


When I first saw this pajama trend, I admit, I was skeptical. I knew I wanted to try it out but I also knew that there was a definite fine line between chic and rolled out of bed vibes to this look. Then the Victoria Beckham line preview came out at Target and there it was. This amazing pajama suit with these gorgeous lillies on it. I instantly knew this was meant for me. 

The day finally arrived and where the collection launched and I was in Las Vegas drinking bottomless mimosas, ordering practically the entire line but making sure that I got multiple sizes of this suit! I was so nervous that the fit would be off and then it would be sold out when I returned it. And I’m so glad I did! The top fits true to size but I had to go up 2 sizes in the pants due to the fit of these. Plus the whole suit was under $80!!! 

Now I wear this Look whenever I want to look ultra chic. Or I wear them as separates for so many different looks! The versatility is endless. 

Here I paired it with satin mules and a bracelet bag for an all around fabulous look.

Flowers for Dreams 


Flowers for Dreams has come to Milwaukee and I couldn’t be more excited! Flowers for Dreams has been a staple floral delivery service in Chicago for the past few years and they are expanding their market to the Milwaukee area. What is so great about this amazing company is that all the flowers are locally crafted, they wrap the flowers in recyclable cloth, the vases are all made of reclaimed materials, the delivery is free and the bouquets are only $35! But the best part about them is that a part of every bouquet sales goes to support a local charity right here in the Milwaukee! How awesome is that! 

Last week I was invited to attend an event thrown by Flowers for Dreams for Milwaukee Influencers to learn about the company and connect with the CEO. The passion behind this company is so inspiring and the bouquets they have are simply stunning. I cannot wait to send these flowers to everyone I know! 🙂

Hair makeover with Roots Salon

 I have to admit, I have let my hair take a backseat priority recently. Which is not ok! But we have all been there,life just gets in the way sometimes and we don’t have time for pampering ourselves. When I let my hair go it get BAD, since I’m a natural blonde, my roots end up looking like grey hair and the ombre turned brassy. So when Roots Salon opened their new salon in Oak Creek in the Drexel Towne Square, I knew I had to run over there and get my hair back in check. 

So when I first arrived at the salon, the girl at the front desk was so friendly, and gave me a tour of the full salon. She offered me something to drink while I browsed some of the top of the line hair care and makeup products for they have for sale. Then it was Autumn to the rescue! She was amazing, I showed her my inspiration pics of a bronde color ( a brown blonde). And she gave me realistic expectations. She was so friendly, funny and made the whole experience fun! 

The results are amazing! The ombre is blended so perfectly, the color is stunning and I love my hair again! Thanks to Autumn and Roots salon for sponsoring my hair change and for helping me to find a new salon home that I will be going to for many times to come.

Getting perfect brows with Brow Studio MKE


I always want to try the latest and greatest when it comes to beauty treatments. So when I hear about microblading I was instantly intrigued. Which you can imagine my excitement when I partnered with Brow Studio MKE to get the treatment done. When I got to the studio, I was greeted by a very friendly front desk girl who had me fill out paperwork. Since microblading is a form of temporarily tattooing you have to fill out the forms like you are in fact getting a tattoo. Which I’m all too familiar with being that I, myself have 15 tattoos. 

After the paperwork was complete I was taken back to the brow room by Sabiha. She instantly put me at ease and was very easy to talk to. She looked at my brows and told me that I didn’t need microblading at all! I was shocked since I have such blonde eyebrows. She told me that yes, they are blonde but they are thick and full. Microblading is to make them look fuller which I do not need. Her honesty was refreshing. She instead suggested that we thread them and dye them to match my brunette hair better. As most of you know, I’m a natural blonde and I dye my hair dark. So dying my brows would eliminate having to fill in my brows to make them appear darker everyday. 

Sabiha proceeded to thread my brows into a perfect shape for my face. And then put the dye on them. It processes for about 15 mins and after words she cleaned it off and made sure everything was even and perfect. I was so impressed with how detailed she was with making them perfect. After seeing the final result I was so happy! I will always go back to this studio for my brows, not just because of my after look but because of the honesty they had with making sure I got the right treatment that was right for me and my brows. 

Make sure you check them out:)

How to care for your designer pieces! 


Designer pieces are a coveted by many women! These are pieces that can get passed down for generations. And since these tend to be such an investment it is key to take great care of them. Here are my tips for keeping your designer duds fab for years to come. 

1. Designer handbags: 

Always keep stored in the dust bag when the bag is not being used.

I just butcher paper to keep fill out the inside of the bag when not being used so that it still maintains its shape.

Be aware of untreated leather: Louis Vuitton bags have untreated leather handles ,it is normal for them to get darker the more you carry the bag from the oils in your skin. Untreated leather will get water damaged so clean with caution.

Condition: just like you condition your hair,you should clean and condition your bags with whatever is recommended by the designer.

2. Shoes: 

Protect them with weather proof spray, this will help prevent water stains 

Keep the bottoms good with resoling them when needed. With Louboutins you will need to find a cobbler that works with loubs . So when you resole them you still get that iconic red bottom.

Again I stuff the shoes with paper when not being worn to keep their shape 

Keep in dust bag or box when not being worn 

Get the heel caps replaced often 
Scarfs: 

Always dry clean or hand wash! NEVER PUT IN THE WASHING MACHINE.

Store out of direct sunlight to prevent discoloration 
Sunglasses: 

Always store in a hard case when not being worn to prevent damage and scratches 

Clean with lens cleaner and a microfiber cloth 
Now that you know how to care for your pieces here are some of my fave websites for designer, designer consignment or vintage pieces!
