A Big Thank YOU & Merry Christmas to Everyone!!!!

Hello everyone, I suppose it's Christmas and we're either with family, friends, or alone at home with ourselves which is not a bad thing. Being alone on Christmas is fine, I was alone for 10 years in a row and I loved every minute of it.

A Leg Up this Holiday Season

One of my favorite Maxi dresses of all time and I only wore once can you believe that and it rained and I had to wear flats because the event I went to was outdoors and it was wet muddy and gross.
I got this dress at Coochianna's in Kingston Jamaica but this style of dress is bigger than ever so you can find it anywhere.

Tis the season for Christmas parties and celebration and just because it happens to be freezing outside does not mean I can't look fancy right.

Some good ole fashion, Red Flannel on my Birthday!!

I took a walk on the river yesterday with my Baba Bear just taking the city in and freezing almost to death, as I absolutely always refuse to wear a bulky jacket all in the name of not ruining my outfit lol. I wore a flannel shirt and surprisingly they are really warm, I mean it won't help you if you wear it without a jacket but its a nice layering piece.

Digging through my old photos again!!!

I've had the opportunity to work with some amazing Jamaican photographers in the past, I was riffing through some folders on my computer trying to clean up all the junk I had stored in here when I started finding tons of footage from old photoshoots. So for the next couple of months every now and again I will be posting a photoshoot TBT every now and again.

Look Effortless in a Sweater Dress

Why have I never worn a sweater dress before, where have they been all my life  need at least 10 more of these in my closet they are pure genius. I love the print on this dress because it reminds me of the 90's and the 90's was a good time,  any dress with floral or rosy print would usually be more of a Spring look however the grey and black color scheme makes this ideal for winter fashion mixes. Plus I don't follow rules I make my own I might wear this again a summer night to roam the city with my friends who knows how I'll feel in a few months lol.

Faux Fur is better in White

Its been too cold for words lately I got this Juicy Couture Faux Fur vest last year and I'm extremely obsessed with it, I have always loved the look of a fur vest I'm not sure why. They really help when you're trying to layer up and stay warm too I paired mine with a black sweater top I stole from my mom almost four years ago. I've worn it more than a thousand times and it has held up strong and no sign of fading even though black clothes are known for that.

On Wednesdays we wear PINK

I rarely ever wear pink but when I saw this pink dress on Everything Mahogany Online Store I thought this might be the day I wear pink. I had to have it and I love the fit because of the stretchy fabric I can wear it now and later when I pack on those few extra pounds after the holidays, which is bound to happen.

My Current Face Routine

These goodies I picked up from Ulta is currently what Im using on my face.
So it is very important that I switch up my face routine because my skin gets used to products and then after a while the product doesn't work. So I went to Ulta to get this face mask I had seen on Pinterest, it was said that it is very effective and it only cost $5, so of course I was interested.

Kanye's Simple yet effective style

If there is one guy who can pull off shirt and jeans that guy is Kanye West, Kanye West has said things and done things that at some point of our lives 98% of us has disagreed with him and even questioned our sanity after we heard it. However we can't deny that he is a creative genius, an artist and his style is phenomenal.

Sweatshirt Season, The Launch of L.Massive

Fall is here *Twirls*  even though I grew up in Jamaica and I'm used to having the beautiful sunshine all year round, I must say I am enjoying the change of seasons.  I'm enjoying the different fashions that come with the different seasons, it's making sense to me now, the different colors that go when.  The weather has been dropping and a small chill has been coming and going so I decided to re-launch my t shirt design line L.Massive short for #LAURENMASSIVE.

Shea Deep Conditioning Mask for Damaged Hair

Now I have been having ups and downs with my hair for the past 9 months. My hair has been growing thats for sure but I suffered from serious breaking and I'll admit I fell off of my hair care regime but not to the extent where my hair was breaking. The majority of the products I was using to care for my hair I can't get my hands on most of them.

Realistic Girl Trends you should Try.

Fashion is definitely a fabulous thing and it can get very expensive if you allow yourself to fully indulge, so today I wanted to write a different kind of post and kind of stray away from closet expectations to something I think every girl, no matter your age should do.

Styling in these Joggers

As the weather drops and Summer waves us good bye, I've been warming up my wardrobe a little bit. I'm wearing men's joggers because I prefer how they look on me as oppose to women's one, I like my joggers to be a bit lose and the female ones I can never quite find the fit I want.

My Favorite Beyonce Style Moments

Beyonce turns 33 today!! Aging is a very tricky thing for us women but with women like Beyonce, Jlo, Halle Berry and I could go on and on, they've made aging seem less scary to us ordinary women. I don't declare myself a Huge Beyonce fan, none the less I'm a fan and I've always admired her, even though I don't always agree with all of her style choices. I still love her I loved her when she was doing that whole too much bronzer make up look, to when she had those micro braids, to when she used to let her mom style her, Destiny's Child and the super big hair days, to today where she has completely discovered her style and owned it.

A little dinner & walking with friends

How I love little Towns, it's September I used to hate September but now I find myself looking forward to each new month as if it were a new opportunity because they are really.  I had dinner recently with some people that are very dear to me and then we did a little bit of walking around in the cutest town ever.  They had some of the cutest named stores and everyone just looked so happy.

Little is much, period!   Trendy is the last stage before tacky - Karl Lagerfeld (Chanel/FENDI)

In effort to be so "on point & trendy" a lot of folks have lost their individual sense of style and have become what I would call fashion-puppets.

My Holy Grail Make-up Foundations

I am not a Foundation girl I've said this many times, I don't like the feel of all that makeup on my face. Honestly I believe that the reason why my skin is in such a good place is because I hardly ever wear foundation, I let my skin breath as much as possible.
