Black & white is definitely my obsession, even in the summer when bright colors are everywhere. I love this striped button up shirt, even though my fiance calls me, “Ref”. haha…

Have a great day!
This time of year, we all want to feel confident in our bikini’s! This great tasting water will help just that by easing digestion and alleviating that bloated feeling. It’s super easy and so yummy you’ll be craving it all summer long!
Here’s the recipe!
Combine 6 cups of water, 1 tablespoon of grated ginger, 1 sliced cucumber, 1 thinly sliced lemon, and ½ cup of mint leaves. Let the water fuse overnight and sip your “skinny water” all day to slim your tummy.
Cheers to a bloat free summer! ;-)
I’m a little obsessed with coconut oil at the moment and I love these fun recipes for beauty products! So far I’ve tried the hand scrub (made my hands seriously soft!), body butter (OMG!), hair mask (a little messy, but great results) and shaving cream (love the smell and feel). All were super easy to do! What uses for coconut oil have you come up? Please share! ;-)
Have a great weekend!
As the wedding invitations pour in, your stress level rises with concerns over what to wear. I’ve partnered up with Paul Fredrick to offer some tips on making your man the “best man” at every summer wedding you attend.
Make sure you also check out Paul Fredrick’s blog for more ideas!
I love lighter colors and lighter fabrics for men attending a summer wedding. Trending right now for men are grey suits. It’s almost becoming the new black. It may seem more suitable for a fall or winter wedding, but with the popularity of pink for women right now, the grey is so complimentary.
One of my absolute favorite accessories for men at anytime of the year is a bow tie. They are always a stylish option in my opinion. I find it so attractive when my fiance wears them. Drool… ;-)
Pink is HOT! It may sound feminine, but I love pink and red on men. In fact, my fiance was wearing pink when we met, instant attraction! ;-) These colors are perfect for the guy who exudes confidence.
For weddings, I prefer long sleeve dress shirts opposed to short sleeves. If it’s hot, you can always roll up your sleeves during the reception. I also love that look! ;-)
While I love the look of a three piece suit, I would go with a two piece suit for summer weddings. You want to be comfortable and it could get hot, especially if the wedding is outdoors. I also think dressing should be more casual in the summer, even for a wedding.
So ladies, I would always try to compliment your dates outfit or vice versa if you’re dressing him. ;-) Not only is it fun, but so attractive! For summer weddings, I really like a short dress. It fits the season and will be so much more comfortable on hot summer days. Also, one of the best things about summer dressing is that we get to have fun with color. My go to colors right now are pink and red. They are this seasons “It” colors and are sure to get you noticed. If your date is a little timid with color, try accessorizing him with a red pocket square and bow tie to match your red dress.
Have a blast at all your summer weddings and I hope this helps spark some ideas for your attire!

Ok, so I’ve tried several of these BB & CC creams, only to be disappointed by their heaviness. I really dislike that caked on feeling. However, Mary Kay’s CC cream provides a sheer to light coverage of skin’s imperfections. It’s wonderful as a lightweight option for evening skin tone and feels very moisturizing while it’s on. Additionally, it has a soft, dewy finish that does not emphasize wrinkles or pores and leaves your skin looking radiant. It also contains some beneficial ingredients such as niacinamide, vitamin C and it’s fragrance-free. I’m in love! ;-)
Purchase your here!
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day/night! ;-)
My new obsession! This amazingly talented UK pop singer was born, Tahliah Barnett. Her music is emotionally layered with erotic vocals and I can’t get enough! Her debut album, LP1, will be released on August 12, 2014. I pre-ordered mine here! ;-)

Happy 4th of July, have a wonderful holiday weekend! ;-)
So, I’ve been an Olay fan for sometime now. I’ve actually been using the Total Effects Body Wash for years and I’m completely obsessed. I often skip lotion because it is so moisturizing. SO, I was so excited when this face cream arrived for me to try!
Olay promises that you will see a healthy-looking, youthful luminosity with this tone perfecting cream. I can say that I definitely felt intense hydration immediately and after using it for a few weeks, I notice more even skin tone. My skin feels so soft and has more of a “glow”. I’m simply in love! Thanks for the introduction Olay, I’m a HUGE fan! ;-)
Feeling like a baby face! haha… ;-)
Jillian Banks is from Los Angeles, even though her EP is titled “London”. One word can describe her voice, incredible! She embraces sultry & strong, leaving me completely obsessed. Her music is intimate, filled with emotion and catchy, sticking with you on a very deep level.
She says that writing is her only way to feel empowered through her weaknesses and that it’s important for all women to embrace those things. Well, I certainly embrace Banks’s music, but if you don’t, she happily puts her phone number out there for anyone to call her. Here you go: (323) 362-2658. While I think that this is a great tactic while she is starting out, she may need to rethink this strategy “when” she blows up! ;-)
In an interview with Dazed Digital, BANKS was quoted as saying, “Human emotion is more interesting than anything. Everything that is so overtly sexual is not real. Real emotion is sexy. It’s vulnerable and raw.” I couldn’t agree more, Banks, I couldn’t agree more.
I hope you all enjoy! ;-)
