Today's Prescription: Shopping is Sweeter with Cinnabon

Happy Friday Jr. loves! It's been a while, but hey boos! 
 
 Ya'll know that shopping is a huge part of my life, and who I am as a person. Since moving to Charlotte, my options for shopping malls have increased greatly, but what is also a big plus for me is being able to stop and satisfy my sweet tooth when all my money has been spent. I love to shop at Concord Mills, and I love to go by the Cinnabon there to get my sugar fix.
 
I've loved Cinnabon since I was a kid, so we go way back, and they are always in a mall lol! I think that it is pretty obvious that we are made for each other. When I go for a shopping trip, I love to stop by Cinnabon to get a classic roll and a Mochalatta Chill. Best combination ever, and that is not up for debate. It's literally the best thing to be able to combine my shopping experience with a warm, gooey classic roll, with extra frosting. Once I start eating, I just get lost in it!
 
What I love about Cinnabon is my experience every time I make a visit. Let's be real, your shopping trip should always be sweet and easy, but that's not always the case. However, with Cinnabon, I've never had to wait a long time to be served and the customer service is always on point. So even if a store didn't have my size in that top I wanted, I feel better because I know that classic roll will never betray me, it's always in my size!
 
If I want to continue  my love affair with Cinnabon, I'll get a couple of rolls to go that I snack on throughout the week, like I said, I get lost in those rolls, and they are gone before I know it.

I love ya'll, be blessed, and stay fab!

Black Boutique: Dress Turned Top feat. Taylored Girl Boutique

Happy Tuesday! I hope this post finds you in the most fabulous state ever! Today, I'm highlighting another black owned boutique, Taylored Girl Boutique. Taylored Girl Boutique is owned by fashion influencer and my Soror, Marshella Taylor. I love Marshella's business because she is glam, and her pieces are everything I adore, bright and full of prints. She just launched her business, but she's already making strides in the fashion business, & I'm so excited to see what's next. P.S. they have a 30% sale going on right now!
 
If I told ya'll my top was a dress, would you believe me? Well, it is. It's the Tropical Mini Dress found here. The dress is gorgeous, but I wanted to play around with the styling (use what you have to get creative). The print went perfectly with these lilac pants, to combine that print and color look I'm always trying to go for.  How do you all use what you have to create something else?
 
I love ya'll, be blessed, & stay fab!
XOXO,

Today's Prescription: Meow & Barks Boutique Skirt

Happy Hump Day boos! If you've been following me for a little while, you know that I love all things bright and patterned. So once I saw this skirt on Kela Walker, I just knew two things-it would be out of my budget, and I had to have it. I was right about both lol, but it's okay to treat yourself as long as it's not all the time.
 
I've been following Meow & Barks Boutique for awhile, they have the cutest pieces, AND they're a black owned boutique. It really feels good to support another black woman and seeing her business flourish. I encourage ya'll to shop with brands that are outside of the huge online retailers, and go small.
 
For styling, color is king of course, and another bathing suit as my top, (lol.) I wanted to let the skirt be the main attraction, so Perspex heels as well. Done.
 
I love ya'll, be blessed, and stay fab!
XOXO,
Zaria

Today's Prescription: Zara Polka Dot Dress

Happy Monday dolls! The weekend flew by, but it definitely was well spent, and much needed. Time to crush these weekly goals!
 
Okay, if I haven't said it before, I'm gonna say it now, Zara is bae! Of course, I don't shop there   unless there's a sale, and this look is a result of that. This dress has me feeling all types of confident and just straight up fine! You see the shoulder pads, sis? Get into em! I love shoulder pads, and for awhile, it seemed like the only place I could get them was in a thrift store. But, look at God out here changing the game for us all lol.
 
For styling, I didn't want to do the most. A good bronzy metallic pump from GoJane, and my red lip in the color "Cherry Blossom" by ColouredRaine was just enough to complete my look.
 
Be blessed, I love ya'll, & stay fab!
XOXO,

Today's Prescription: The Minty Green Suit

Happy Thursday loves! It's almost the weekend, just keep pushing, we gone make it!
 
There's nothing more trendy right now than pants suits or a "power suit" as ya'll like to call it. They are literally all over my timeline, from everywhere! Zara, H&M, you name it, it's there. I've been wanting to join the suit game for awhile, (outside of the navy and blacks for work), but I've been going the frugal, but fabulous route.
 
This minty green suit is my third suit to make an appearance and it's my third suit from Boohoo. If you missed them, be sure to check out the first two here and here. Obviously, I haven't' pushed myself to spend $100+ on a suit yet, because I just haven't found the right one. It's a whole relationship, sis lol.  
 
For styling, I paired the blazer and trousers with a bathing suit top, yes a bathing suit top! Gotta use what you got, sis. This suit makes me feel super cool in the midst of this hot weather.  Of course, I wore my handy dandy perspex heels for a shoe. Nothing too fancy, ya know.
 
I love ya'll, be blessed, and stay fab!
XOXO,
