Birthday Re-cap... I just have to share

Last Monday was surprisingly great! After all, I was a mom of 3 weeks with no intention of going anywhere or getting any gifts which was fine..... but I did. Hubby took care of me and I want you to know that even if it went as I expected, I would have been fine. However, after getting out of the house it seemed I was a whole new revitalized human being. I do not know a better way to say it.

But it started with him taking the day off and sending me to a spa day here at one of my favorite locations, Gould's Day Spa in the Peabody Hotel. Before heading out, he asked if I was taking me NOOK and I was because I have some magazines and books on there that I could read while getting pedicure. So he gave me a gift.... the Juicy Couture E-book case that I posted here! Love it! Even though I did not even read....the girl that was doing my mani/pedi hit it off with a motivational and uplifting conversation that I also needed!

Then when I got home after having a massage, facial, mani and pedi... He said you need to pump! I said yeah...He said ok then take a shower...I'm like wait a minute! Then he said I have dinner reservations. I'm like, "How and whose going to watch Nadia?' He told me not to worry about it that he had everything covered! He did! I love a man to take charge and make things happen!! LOL!

So I got dressed the best I could, it was my first time putting on makeup since the Thursday before giving birth!! Really let myself go there for a minute!!! We ended up eating at one of my favorite spots here called Flight! If you live here, please go. The concept is great and the food is awesome.

Oh and he got me a Burberry wristlet that I have been wanting and this Rachel Roy jacket that I am in love with! It's been too warm here to break it out yet but I cannot wait to rock it!



Colors: Wocka Wocka and Rainbow Connection from Muppet Babies OPI collection



I had a great day. Thanks for reading!

Belated "Thankful" Post

I did not get a chance to share with you some of the things that I am thankful for..... so it was on my heart to share now especially after reading some of the other blogs that shared on yesterday, it is only right!

I am thankful for Nadia. She has already changed my life and the way I think. I thought I was rational and considerate before. now I think I have an even more focused outllook because of her.

I am thankful for my loving and dedicated husband. He has calmed me down through the years. Little things matter but they don't make me mad like they did in the past. I look forward to being with him when we are not together. He is my best friend.




I am thankful for my friends. I have some DIEHARD true friends. Many people cannot say that... they say " Oh, I don't do females", or "I can't be friends with women they are evil".... I have never felt this way or let it hinder my progress in loving my BFFs. One of my BFFs surprised me yesterday and flew in from Chicago to come help me out around the crib. Isn't it amazing? We have been friends since I was 13. My other girls call me nearly everyday or text to check on me. THose are my college road dogs! We love each other and it is beautiful.



I am thankful for my health, my career, my family, and my love for life.

I am thankful for the few followers I have.... You know 3 people called me and texted me last week to say they got inspiration from my post. or they liked my blog, etcetera.  That meant alot. I will continue to pot because it is fun for me and a hobby nonetheless and hopefully it will transpire into other amazing connections and events in my life. The numbers will come ( hopefully!!)

Have a great weekend and love your life! There is something amazing in each of our lives to be grateful for even if it is to have food in the fridge... BTW I am grateful for that too!!

We are thinking of adopting a family for Christmas.... gifts and food to help the less fortunate. So I will post more about that later.

Thanksgiving Inspiration

Hey! Hope everyone is doing well! Thanks for following!

Well my birthday ended up being thebomb.com thanks to Hubby! Post to follow soon about my day. We have been invited to 3 dinners for Thanksgiving. I have a problem saying a definite NO and now we have to really decide where we will go. I am kind of finicky about getting baby out but she will be a month old  this week and my BFF said she got her baby out at 3 or 4 weeks.  I really want to go somewhere if I get a sufficient amount of shuteye and put on makeup and a cute little fit. So I guess we will see.

Happy Birthday to ME!




So I told you that today I am 34! I have a whole new world as compared to the last. First off, its so true how time actually flies. Time is so valuable yet you cannot put a value on it. People say 30s are the new 20s but I would rather be here in these 30's than 20s! Wait a minute did I just say that?!! Seriously,  when I was in my 20's I imagined what my life would be at this point in my life right now. I wondered where my career would be, if I would have children, or even a man to have a child with,  where I would be living and even how I would look!!!

Today, I am blessed in all of the areas except looks... gotta get my swagga back!  I have the most loving husband who I had yet to meet. I have a beautiful newborn with him and we are tackling this parenthood thing together. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to get a great education leading to a successful career as a pharmacist. I love our home even though I have had an itch to move lately. Life is good and I wouldn't trade it. So for all of these reasons I love my 30's! My friends and family are important to me as well. I cannot even go into how I have managed to keep friendships and relationships with them and they are sooooooo meaningful.

Well this is not a post to brag... I am counting my blessings. So in the midst of it all, don't forget to count yours.

Hubby has taken off work to treat me to a spa day at Goulds Day Spa here in Memphis. He will keep baby! I am so happy because my feet are in great need! LOL!

Hand Bracelets

If you are a fan of THe X Factor, then you were also in awe of the diamond hand bracelet that Nicole wore last week. I found it but we would have to win the PowerBall  (but then I wouldn't pay this much) to purchase it or even rent it. It is below making me so mad by it's cost.... I found another fly hand piece that I would like to rock.

We Like to Party - Beyonce Style Inspiration



I am so in love with We Like to Party video by Beyonce featuring J Cole. I do prefer Andre 3000's verse better but J. Cole is still hot. Besides the song, I am so feeling the fun and quirky fashion that Beyonce is rocking. Not to mention the makeup and nails in this video! Whoever was in charge did their thing! 


BeSpoke Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton Peter Pan Feather Jacket 


Love these shoes! More than likely these are the Diors below. I also found the Jeffrey Campbells that are similar. I have had my eye on these since earlier this summer.


Jeffrey Campbell 

Christian Dior 




Love Kelly's pink lipstick! It looks like MAC Lickable which I love. I did not have luck with an alternative to the  mini fur jacket but would you wear that?









Forever 21 Cheetah Corset Top


Love 21 Neon Orange Nail Polish Forever 21 

Large 1980's Door Knocker Earrings from Hiphopcloset 





Honestly, I am loving all of her looks in this video! You go Bey! I am going to reenact the whole video when I am able to start moving around! I love her face at the end of the video..  


Watch!!!


What are your favorite scenes and looks?
