As the winter season is approaching I find myself motivated to establish better daily habits. I decided to focus on creating a better morning routine. Although occasional days of sleeping in are fabulous we all need to wake up early to get things done! Check out some of my favorite tips below hopefully they can help you get into the morning groove!
1. Maintain a fixed bedtime and waking time
3. Don’t hit snooze on your alarm
4. Get out of bed
5. Avoid your phone
6. Try self-affirmation
7. Drink some water
8. Exercise or stretch
9. Eat something within an hour of waking up
10. Meditation & Prayer
As always no matter how you feel try to wear something that makes you feel good ! A great accessory is a great way to start the day!
“Is that a Brandon Blackwood Bag”? This popular question was coined by the fans of the well known Handbag Designer, Brandon Blackwood. Brandon Blackwood created his iconic handbag line in 2015. However this year the brand has gained tons of popularity, It’s not easy getting your hand on one of these bags they sell out pretty quickly! However once you get one it is worth the wait.
What I love most about these bags is not only are they super cute they are affordable. This bag is ideal for the Fashionista on a budget. You can snag one of these mini trunk bags for about $155.00 (Prices Vary)

I remember the day My Mother gave me this bag. She purchased it at a local Thrift Shop for a few dollars, but being the expert shopper that she was I knew that this gem had to be worth much more. So I did my research and found out that this bag was an authentic Elk handbag retailing at $300.00! I will be keeping it forever.
I remember walking into the Patricia Field store over a decade ago in New York when I spotted this beauty of a skirt, because of life’s dramas she sat in my closet for way to long! Well she’s out and being worn in a city near you!
I have always been a fan of old school gangsta movies! I have a whole collection of them and Boyz N The Hood is definitely in it! 30 years ago Director John Singleton took us to the streets of Compton in this iconic film and it is still a classic until this day!
This is why when I came across this Boyz N The Hood Tee I had to grab it! One of the best things about Fashion is that it lets you incorporate everything you love as a visual representation on your body. Check out how I included one of my favorite movies into one of my everyday looks.
Never be afraid to turn around a graphic tee and some jeans into instant glam with some pumps! To make this look more glam I added my stripped J. Crew pumps. I also rolled up the cuffs of the jeans because they looked short to me to avoid a total highwater disaster I just rolled them up a bit lol.
You can never go wrong with a vintage bag! and what’s cool is that you can grab one from your local thrift shop for under $10 dollars. Vintage bags are always fun because you know that they had a life before you and you can give them a new chapter with yours!
I Love my J. Crew Pumps!
I decided to complete this look with a vintage coat, looks like a raincoat to me but because it’s such a cute piece I will be wearing it rain or shine! I was happy to bring this piece out it was sitting in my closet for way to long! I got this about 4 years ago on sale for $1.00!
Before: Jeans with no cuff
After: Jeans Cuffed
Do you like the this look with the Jeans cuffed or not? I prefer them cuffed! These are actually Martha Stewart jeans I purchased for $10 during my random shopping trips!
Ok so back to this tee shirt
I found this tee at TJ Maxx, It’s literally no brand or anything. I was able to get this Iconic graphic tee for $9.99 you can’t beat that!
