What I Wore This Week

Hey ya'll, I survived the first day of school and week of school. I mentioned on  IG  yesterday that I'm still trying to find balance with school starting back. I'm also back working evenings so my life is going to a little hectic. But I know everything will work out.  Being that I'm back in school I can share my fabolous outfits at work.

As you know I'm all about comfort and style! If you want to learn more about how I shop and where I shop for my clothes you read my Teaching In Style E-Book.


I stumbled upon this dress walking through Wal-Mart one evening.  I said to myself I have to  add this dress to my collection. I needed more dresses to just throw on or even to wear to work just like this one. This dress does come on other styles as well and it's only $20.  It would only be right to pair it with my favorite sneakers from ASOS.


I'll be honest I was a bit nervous about wearing this kimono to work but I quickly got over it. My best friend passed this kimono on to me after she purchased it from Amazon over the summer.  I'm a big fan of kimonos paired with jeans and this is perfect for the work place.  My kids were in awe of the kimono, "Ms. Nathan, I love you cape."  I thought it was the sweetest thing.

I can't wait to share more looks the rest of the school year. Be sure to check out my Teaching In Style E-Book Here.

Pinking Up Where We Left Off

If you signed up for my newsletter then you know what I'm happy to announce. Back in 2017, I hosted a blogging workshop where I had myself and several different local businesswomen speak on different topics. From starting a blog, creating content, growing your Instagram, photography, etc. After the first workshop, I wanted to do it again but I let fear and doubt talk me out of it.  But not this time around..

Back in June, I thought to myself you have the skills to do what you need to do.  You can build a website, create content, edit videos, etc. Everything I do for my blog, I can help others do it.  Let me say I talked myself out of it about three times even before writing this blog post. But how will I know it won't work if I don't try.

On August 30th,  I will be launching my Virtual Assistant Services. I'm a bit nervous but I know I can do the work.  I want this business to be a way for me to help others start their business or lend a helping hand.  I'm currently working on finishing up the website and photography.  I can't wait to see where this takes me and my brand.

Here's to taking on a new project and leaving fear behind. I hope you after that one thing you've been afraid to do this month. You owe yourself just that...

National Lipstick Day

Happy #NationalLipstickDay ! This happens to be one of my favorite social media holidays. I have a strong love for a lipstick ever since I was younger. I can remember watching my mom put on lipstick and I would admire how much makeup she had. Her favorite brand growing up was MAC Cosmetics. She loved this frost color lipstick and I remember this pink lipstick pink poodle.  

My lipstick collection started to grow in 2010 and fast forward to now I have a huge collection of lip colors. From lipstick to lip-glosses I collected them because many brands released limited edition colors.  I still have my Rihanna and MAC Cosmetics lipstick. I can’t forget my Nicki Minaj lip color as well. With today being NationalLipstick Day I wanted to share my current favorite lip colors.  If I could share all of them I’d been here all day. If you want to see my previous post CLICK HERE!

My go-to finish would be a Matte Finish, I love how the lipstick looks painted on my lips. Don't get me wrong I do love lipgloss but I tend to reach for my matte colors the most.

These brands give my lips a fuller and even a sexier look:

Reds/ Orange
