Mamanista Fridays: Animal Print


Happy Friday! I loved this week’s Mamanista Friday theme hosted by The Baby Shopaholic and Mama Fashion Files which happened to be Animal Prints! My favorite animal print is definitely leopard, but I have a few other patterned animal prints in my closet– like this turquoise cheetah print romper. Rompers are lightweight, comfortable and perfect for this season’s changing temperatures. Pair them with a blazer, booties, heels or flats and you have a simple outfit.

FAB FINDS: Must-Have Fall Accessories!


I’m so ready for Fall. I’m completely ready to transition from my bright summer colors to more muted, jewel-toned, and vampy hues. If you’re like me and want to tap into the spirit of Fall on a budget, I’ve created a list of some must-have fall accessories that you should add to your closet. A few tips are blow:

1.Let’s start with your beauty routine. While you can still apply your blush and bronzer, to get a more Fall-like look, try adding a darker lip. My favorite thus far is Mac Cosmetics lipstick in Sin.

2. Next, instead of your Panama Hat, swatch it out for a wool fedora or beanie hat. Remember to protect your stands from breakage or dryness by wearing a silk scarf underneath the hat.

3. Swap out the sandals by adding moto booties or patterned flats to your sundresses, pants, leggings or skirts.

4. Change up your large summer beach bags for neutral, plum or smaller handbags.

5. Add a patterned scarf to any outfit for a touch of chicness.

6. I know some of these prices are out there, but just use the items as inspiration.

Our Johnny Rockets Visit in Queens


You might have already seen #MyRocketShake creation for the Johnny Rockets contest a few days ago, but now I’m so excited to talk about my experience with the global restaurant chain. I visited my local Johnny Rockets in Glendale, NY where the service was swift and the waiters were extremely accomodating. Since the restaurant is known for its thick, delicious shakes and burgers, I ended up ordering two of each.

Johnny Rockets National Shake Month

Disclosure: I attended the 2014 Blogger Bash were Johnny Rockets was a sponsor and am eligible for a grand prize for my recipe.  My opinions are 100% my own.

Did you know that September is national “Shake Month?” I don’t know about you but I absolutely LOVE milkshakes! However, I can only enjoy my ice cream when it’s completely melted. I just hate having to scoop up hard, frozen ice cream. I’m the type of person you might find annoying since I like to leave the tub of ice cream out to melt completely and then I still put it in the microwave. Yep–my homemade  milkshakes don’t consist of a blender, milk and ice. I simply heat it up.

Hair Fab with the Olivia Garden NanoThermic Brush


What type of tools do you use on your natural hair? Do you use heat on a regular basis? If you’ve been following my natural hair journey, you know that I got a huge cut in early April due to excessive heat damage. Well since that experience, I’m overly protective about using any type of heat on my hair. That’s not to say I avoid heat completely. It’s just that I’m more proactive about protecting my strands. Luckily a few months ago I was sent the Olivia Garden NanoThermic Brush to review.

 Disclosure: I was sent the “Sperry” shoes and “Made 2 Play” sneakers from Stride Rite to review. However, all opinions are 100% my own.


The back to school season is finally here. I remember when I was a kid, my favorite part of “back to school” was definitely the shopping. Now that I’m a mom, I love to shop for my son and if I can find styles that are affordable and trendy, that’s even better. A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting the Stride Rite team and previewed some cool Fall styles. I was sent the “Made To Play” sneakers and “Sperry” boat shoes to review.
