Hey guys this one is long overdue. I started drafting this post just as the Coronavirus began interrupting everyone’s lives. For the past week and a half I’ve been adjusting to my new normal and I’ve straight up neglected my baby, my blog.
That happened for a number of reasons. First I felt like who cares about style and fashion right now, as I’ve been living in pjs, sweats, and hoodies myself. But then I read something on social media that said during the quarantine in London several lifetimes ago, William Shakespeare wrote King Lear. Please make no mistake I am not comparing my blog post to the literary gifts of Shakespeare but my words, pictures, and insights might just brighten someone’s day. So I’m back at it, ladies and gents and I’m here for the long haul. Stay safe, healthy, and happy. And say a prayer for all “the essential workforce” out there, cause Corona and Jesus are everywhere…lol
This blog post was drafted pre-Corona
Hey hey hey!!! We’re halfway through March already! Can you believe it?! I know we say this a lot but time is FLYYYYYING!!! I’m loving all the amazing Women’s History Month events, art, music and dope content that’s made its way to my social media timelines. It’s a lovefest for women and I love it. It’s nothing like witnessing a glow-up.
My Chic Living Room
Speaking of glow-ups I’ve had my own miniature glow-up in the form of a mini/major home improvement. I finally bit the bullet and bought an adult couch. Say hello to Betty ya’ll. Yes, I give inanimate objects names; cars, couches, kitchen appliances, it’s what I do 🤷🏽♀️. Betty seems like a very grownup name right?! Lol
I purchased Betty online at Wayfair.
This wasn’t my first purchase on Wayfair. I purchased my dining rooms chairs as well as several other household items from Wayfair. You could say Wayfair and I have some “history.” They never disappoint. I can always expect quality products and on time and careful delivery. They are the best!!!
I deliberated over this purchase for the better part of a year, mostly because I wanted a chocolate brown couch like Betty. But for some reason, the brown couches were way out of my budget; so I settled. I never settle, fatal flaw of mine. If it’s not exactly what I want, how I want it, I seldom cave. But I did in this case and the results weren’t terrible. I was trying to create the magic in the picture, on the left (designed by Maureen Mahon). And I think I nailed it. I protect Betty from my wayward family with this amazing couch cover I picked up from Amazon. It comes in a variety of colors so if you have kids or pets this is a good look.
The pillows are a Marshalls find, designed by Cynthia Rowley.
She makes the best home décor pieces. I’m a sucker for embellished pieces, sequin, glitter, anything that sparkles I’m here for it. The lamps are from Target, the coffee table is from Amazon. The wall art is also a Marshalls find I have no clue who designed them. I saw golden elephants and knew they had to go home with me. Why elephants you ask, they are strong, regal, but gentle and familial at the same time; sorta like me.
Let’s get into this outfit. Now there was no deliberation on this look it was a no brainer. I bought the skirt and top from Shein. The whole outfit cost less than $50. They are one of my favorite fast fashion websites. Stay tuned for my fast fashion post. The shoes are Badgley Mischka, they’re apart of their Jewel Collection.
Until next time friends…
