Local Color: Pow Wow

Today was definitely nothing like I planned. I planned to clean and do hair and finish up some majorly neglected projects, but instead I went to a Pow Wow. Yes, an actual Native American Pow Wow. Hubby was invited by the university's Multicultural Association to the Guilford County Native American Association Annual Pow Wow and I thought it would be great to tag along and see what a Pow Wow is all about.

 I was so amazed to see the pride the people took in their work. The craftsmanship was outstanding. Most of the vendors hand made their items. Their willingness to explain the history and significance to both the traditional dress, dances, and ceremonies definitely made the experience much more enjoyable.

I most certainly did not think I was going to enjoy myself as much as I did. It was such an honor being a part of this experience.

Strawberry Picking

This weekend was nothing short of perfection. We spent some quality time together, just the three of us. Saturday morning at the strawberry patch and the rest of the day at a BBQ festival in Winston-Salem (pictures forthcoming). By the end of the day we were happy, full, and exhausted!

Wellness Wednesday: Sick Leave

Hey Loves! You know that lovely quiet weekend I was going to have...well I got it. I spent the majority of the weekend in bed asleep fighting what I now know to be a nasty case of strep throat.  I can definitely attribute my illness to not eating the right foods and exhaustion. 

So this weeks wellness tip will be to put the right things in your body and stay rested up. If you don't your body will turn on you and allow little monsters to invade your throat and lay you out. 

Trying to get it together darlings...

Feel Good Friday: 2 Things that Made My Heart Skip a Beat

Hello Loves!! It's a rainy Friday here in Greensboro, and I am so glad it is. This weekend is going to be short and uneventful, which I am thoroughly looking forward to. This week has been one of exhaustion and frustration, I just wanna be still. It would be perfect if the monsoon outside would linger and let the sound of the rain soothe my achy head. I am eager to rest, this week has been a beast. 

Not all of it was bad, here are a few things that made my heart jump...

 The cutest little journal I picked up at a quaint gas station on the way to Pop...I am not quite sure what to write in it yet so I am saving it for when genius strikes.

 The sun setting behind the mountains and the freedom of the open road...

Have a Beautiful Weekend.

My Fifty Shades

Hello all!!! I hope everyone had as relaxing of a weekend as I did! It's always the best in Pennsylvania at Pop's house! Great company, good food, relaxing atmosphere, and someone else for Naomi to focus her attention!

Leaving me room to indulge in the world of Christian Grey.....Oh My!

I had no idea that this was an erotic fiction, but from the first line I couldn't put it down! I started Fifty Shades of Grey on Saturday afternoon, and just finished Fifty Shades Darker 10 minutes ago(yes I'm at work)...all I know is I have been laughing and crying and pissed the hell off and I am tired. I can't imagine how Anastasia felt! I guess that is the Christian effect, well she stayed and so am I! Guess I better pick up Freed on the way home!

If you have read these amazing books, you know that there is talk about a movie and many speculations have been floating as to who will play the duo of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. Here are my picks!

 Perfect....but little Rory Gilmore would definitely have to prove herself worthy! Who are your picks? What?! You haven't read it yet? Well, turn off your computer and get to the book store!!!!

Looks I Love: InStyle Work Chic Celebrity Style + A Question

Anh has truly been my Muse for the week. Her chic work wear has be yearning for some wardrobe additions to make my office ensembles more interesting, versatile, and attractive. I have said it before and I will say it again, If I have to work I want to do it looking (therefore feeling) my absolute best. 

A little inspiration for those of you who feel the same.

So much of the time I feel like I would be better dressed if my circumstances (location, size, income) were different. I am not sure if I am using that as an excuse or if it is a legitimate issue that other people are having, so I am asking you. 

How, if at all, do your circumstances affect your personal style? And how do you overcome those obstacles to achieve a bangin' wardrobe in spite of?

Wellness Wednesday: Wish List

Hi all!!! I hope you all are making through the week wonderfully! Today is Wellness Wednesday and I want to talk about my Workout Wear Wishlist. Smack dab in the middle of Spring with Summer quickly approaching, wardrobe adjustments are quickly being made, but what about our gym wear? Shall we be forced to workout in the same gym clothes from our massive this-years-resolution-will-happen spree in January? I don't know about you, but working out is not something I want to do looking a mess! I need a great looking outfit to take the attention away from the unattractive facial expressions and sweat stains!

I mean what better motivator is there than a cute outfit to show off!!!
Here are a couple of outfits that would keep me looking good on the grind!

Love Jones

Yesterday's Muse seriously has me jonesing for this Kenneth Cole Blouse. I have 
been stalking it at for the past two months and it is finally
 on sale!! Although, I cannot justify spending $60 on a blouse to Hubby 
when we are seriously saving for a house and some other upcoming events
this needs to make its way into my closet.
Love Jones

Ha! I just gave myself a giggle for using the word "jonesing." I just might 
feel the way Darius (Larenz Tate) felt about Nina (Nia Long) when it comes 
to this beautiful top. If you haven't seen Love Jones, it's a must. Perfect 
for those cozy nights when you are in the mood for something romantic. 
Maybe after a date night in this sexy silk piece! 

Muse Monday: 9 to 5 Chic

Working should always look like this... Anh from 9 to 5 Chic is an inspiration for all working women.

I love this dress! This shirt needs to go on sale ASAP!!!!

Monday Meditation

Happy Monday Loves!  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Finally back into the swing of things after my Mother's Day New Orleans Trip. Most of the time I am thinking a million things at once and trying to make it all fit. Frankly, all that mental energy is exhausting and can make things more frustrating.

If anyone of you reading experiences the same thing, you might need to be reminded that...

Feel Good Friday

It's Friday!!!! 

I am so excited about this weekend at home! Last weekend I went to visit my mommy in New Orleans for Mother's Day. After the 13 hour drive there and back (yes a whopping 26 hours) and no break before going back to work, my house needs some TLC and I really need a nap! This low key weekend is definitely  in order...hopefully Naomi will be a relaxed as I need her to be...
