Today's Prescription: A Dose of Grad Series

Happy Friday loves! Omg I can't believe I'm two days away from graduating. I know I've been writing my head off about this, and I know ya'll are probably annoyed with me talking about it. However, this achievement was no walk in the park. Getting my Master's was an "all or nothing" task for me, and I want to share my story, and hopefully you'll get something out of it.  

In late 2015, after graduating from undergrad, I accepted a state job that after about eight months in, I hated. I felt like I wasn't valued, I hated my boss if I'm being honest, and I knew I needed a change. I can't tell you how many days I'd sit in the bathroom crying because I was so miserable. I liked the work I was doing, but hated management and the culture. That's when I found out about the Master's program. It was full-time, and I would have to quit my job if I was going to go back to school. Well, God always makes a way, and He did for my education. I struggled with some classes, had some trying times, and I was living off a refund check and trying to run a blog at the same time. Fast forward to an internship in Ohio, to getting an offer in Charlotte, NC. Let me tell ya'll, when you're down to nothing, God is always up to something, and for me, I had people who were praying for me when I wouldn't pray for myself. Keep trusting, keep believing, and God will see you through. Here's to post one of "A Dose of Grad."

I love ya'll, and stay fab!

Today's Prescription: How to Style Plaid

Happy Thursday loves! I can't believe I'm three days from my hooding and graduation. On top of that, I'm still not finished with Christmas shopping. To be honest though, I'm all shopped out ya'll. In store and online. I'm not sure what's going on, but I am just ready to spend time with my family and eat food that I have no business eating. I can just taste it now. I am so excited. 

I wanted to share this look with ya'll that I think is holiday appropriate, but can be worn throughout the cooler seasons. If you've been following my blog or social media, then you know that I've been wearing a lot of Boohoo pieces lately. Plaid is bae, and with the ruffle detail on these bottoms, I couldn't resist. To make this holiday friendly, I paired these pants with this sweater from Target's Who What Wear collection that you can find here. The bows are a little extra, but that's what I love about this sweater. SN: this sweater has more of a pink tone, but looks more creme on these photos. 

So, how are you styling plaid?

I love ya'll, and stay fab!

Today's Prescription: Mint Julep Poncho

Happy Tuesday dolls! Thirteen days until Christmas, and one week until graduation. I took some grad pictures yesterday so I'm excited to see them eeeeeek! Life is coming at me fast, but I'm so excited for all the blessings and I can't wait to see how everything is going to play out. Anyway, I'm still not finished with Christmas shopping, lol I'm horrible. 

Ponchos are perfect for fall and winter, and when I found this one on Mint Julep and omg ya''ll. It's super warm and comfortable, which I love. Just goes to show that you don't have to wear sweats to stay warm during the cooler seasons.You can find this poncho here, it's super affordable and can be styled multiple ways. For styling, I went with a white turtleneck, blue denim, and black booties, oh and can't forget my Starbucks lol. P.S. you get $10 off your first order! 

Have a great day, I love ya'll, and stay fab!
XOXO,

Today's Prescription: Christmas with Blue

Happy Hump Day loves! Today I'm coming at you with a Christmas themed post. If you haven't noticed, I love Christmas, it's my favorite holiday besides Thanksgiving. I just love being around family, friends, and food. My favorite "F" words lol. Okay forreal, Christmas is my boo's bday, you know the man upstairs, Jesus himself, so it's just the best ever. 

 I though I'd feature my baby, my dog Blue, and recruit him as my little reindeer this year lol. Of course, it looks like he'd rather be anywhere else doing anything but taking pictures with me. I promise ya'll, he loves me. This was my first year putting up my own tree, so please try not to roast me too bad. My skirt is a thrifted, red plaid maxi skirt with a black ridged top from H&M. I got my pearl embellished beret from Shein that you can find here for the low. 

I love ya'll, have a great day, stay fab!
XOXO,

Today's Prescription: JORD Watch + Colorblock Coat

Happy Monday dolls! It's the fourth day of December, and I really need to get my life together. I graduate in 13 days! I'm obviously late with pictures, invitations, and everything else lol. OMG, okay let me breathe. I hope you all are enjoying the last month of the year and are knocking out your goals!  As for me, I'm gonna take it one day at a time.

Today I want to talk to ya'll about this amazing watch I received from JORD. This isn't my first time rocking their pieces, but I couldn't stay away. It's the style Cassia found here and I love it! It's classy, can be paired with most looks as the perfect accessory, and it's the perfect holiday gift!  For styling, I paired it with dark denim, a color block coat, and animal print shoes. I love JORD watches because they're unique, wood watches that are nothing like most watches we see everyday. Best part is, you can get 25% off your order now just by clicking here. I'd love to know what style you get!

Have a great day, I love ya'll, stay fab!
XOXO,
