THE PINK LOCKET HANDMADE JEWELRY SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE




Hey Lovelies! So I wanted to talk you about this BEAUTIFUL handmade jewelry from ThePinkLocket.com. The Pink Locket is a Caribbean owned handmade jewelry company that also has a monthly jewelry subscription service. I received the earrings and bangles for the July and August subscription boxes for review and guys, they're so pretty! I absolutely love them. They are minimal and stylish and you can wear them with almost anything. I've been giving them a serious test run like above when I went to dinner with the bangles. The great thing about the bangles is that they are flexible so I can squeeze them around my extra skinny wrists. As for the earrings, I love the shell shape and the texture. I can rock them with any hair style.

DAY PARTY STYLE





A couple weeks ago I attended the Fashion 500 Award Party hosted by the Block Association. I decided to wear this super cute mauve/purple 70s inspired wrap dress I thrifted a few months ago. I've been waiting for a reason to wear it and this was the perfect event. I don't normally wear mid-length dresses but thought that I should take the plunge and do something different since my normal dress/skirt choice is short and tight or flared. Sometimes I do maxi length but never in between. 





At 5ft 2in I try to avoid awkward length dresses and skirts, and go for shorter to make my legs look longer. #petiteproblems  And well, as if the dress wasn't bright enough I threw in this green Moruka Angie clutch. I feel like I look kinda crayola chic (lol) but the neutral shoes toned things down. I imagine wearing green shoes would have been #teamtoomuch.





 Still not sure about the dress length. 
I may or may not shorten it. What should I do? 
Petite girls what are your style struggles?

What I Wore:
Hair: twist out
Dress: Goodwill thrifted
Shoes: Call It Spring/JCP
Jewelry: borrowed & Forever21









SUPER NEUTRAL




I'm a big lover of contrast even when I go neutral. I beliiieeeve in contrast, even in the simplest of outfits. This look is something I'd wear to run errands. A comfy grey sweater, light blue jeans, wedge lace ups and the brown Shivon Clutch for when I don't have much to carry is great for me in the Spring time. Even though this entire look is full of neutral colours my bag still stands out and well, I just HAD to throw in the red lips and non-prescription cat eye glasses.







13 Things To Do When You're Snowed In





As the entire country knows by now, the East Coast is being pummeled by #SNOWPOCALYPSE2015. It's a white, blustery, windy, frigid, blasted mess out there. New Yorkers are stranded all over the place because Mayor DeBlasio closed the subways & put an 11pm curfew on drivers so that the streets can be plowed. People sleeping at work &/or huddled up inside bodegas. Others are buying enough food to last through Spring & Home Depot can't keep enough rock salt in stock. Schools & some workplaces are even shut down for tomorrow. And most devastating of all, Facebook & Instagram went down & all through Twitterland everyone was in an absolute meltdown panic. No wonder my Facebook post about doing this blog post wouldn't load. hmph  But what if Facebook, Twitter & Instagram really disappeared though? Scary.......


So what's a girl to do when she's all snowed in? Well here's what I did. I'm sure pretty much everyone did variations of these but in case you didn't here are some ways to pass the time.


1.) Watch Netflix - I recommend Marco Polo & Peaky Blinders.






2.) Eat donuts - Or some other junk food that isn't good for you. I left my jelly donut in the microwave too long. Who knew 30 seconds was too long for a jelly donut? Damn near all my jelly came out.

3.) Drink Alcohol - This is a no brainer. Wine, rum, vodka, tequila.......

4.) Sit by the window & watch the snow fall. Maybe take some pictures. Some dude got arrested at the store across the street. Took 4 police cars for ONE dude.

5.) Watch Youtube - I caught up on:  


Kevonstage

Trace Ellis Ross

DessyGT


6.) Watch people shovel snow - Shout out to the home & car owners. I just know my mom is gonna make me shovel her car out of the damn snow.

7.) Use social media - Play on Twitter since Facebook & Instagram are down for the night. Keep refreshing to see if they are back up. UPDATE: They were back up around 2:10am

8.) Watch TV - I caught up on the snow news



Testing out my new wig
9.) Take random selfies

10.) Cook

11.) Write a blog post - Like I'm doing now.

12.) Listen to the sounds of the wind and snow plows dragging through the street. You just know that as soon as they leave the snow will pile back up.

13.) Take a nap - The main reason why I'm up writing a blog post.

BONUS!!!
14.) Listen to music - 50's Rock n' Roll was my music of choice. La Bamba is my fave 50's song. Pandora is wonderful.





Sometimes I just wanna leave New York & move to Cali. The prospect of rolling out of bed & throwing on shorts to run errands is enticing.



So what are you doing to pass the time?

Do you have to go to work?

Parents. What plans have you made for your kids since 

schools are closed?
