I’m a simple woman with simple needs so here’s my shopping list!
shopbop holiday sale My good friend loves elephants and wine so isn’t this Jonathan Adler White Elephant Bottle Stopper just darling? This Gift Boutique “Stay Fancy” Wine Glass will be the perfect companion to the wine stopper haha. Hopefully my Secret Santa doesn’t read my blog because this Talk is Chic Tray is great for her. She loves accessories and it’s the perfect little tray to drop her trinkets and jewelry. I’d be a liar if I said I didn’t pick something up for me. I’m a “one for you, one for me” kinda shopper so when I saw this GLAMluxe Full Lid Makeup Holder by GLAMboxes — it had to be mine. It’s great for sorting out the makeup that’s on my vanity.

This offer expires at 11:59 p.m. PT on November 30, 2015. Exclusions apply!

Get the Look for Less ft. Wendy Williams!

I’ve always been a Wendy Williams fan due to her honest opinion on EVERYTHANG and if it weren’t for the #dayjob, I’m sure I can sit home and binge watch her talk show all day, every day.

In addition to celebrity interviews, she’s always down with the latest pop-culture and entertainment headlines AND has the best guests. Today’s guest is fashion expert Melissa Garcia who was on deck to show us how to get the look of our favorite TV leading ladies (ahem, Olivia Pope) for a fraction of the price! Watch it below!

Tell me: what’s your favorite look: Cookie, Chanel, or Olivia? Leave a comment below or tweet me! You guys KNOW of my love for Olivia Pope – pair that with my obsession with capes, I just might head on over to Asos!

Disclosure: this post is sponsored. I actually do like Wendy Williams though.

Loving Lately: The Wrap Life

Have you ever heard of The Wrap Life? I discovered them late one night last February (likely during one of many snowstorms) and have quickly fallen in love with the brand.

The Wrap Life is a retailer of African printed scarves and accessories that was created by Nnenna Stella in Brooklyn, New York. Now I love a small business owned by a brown girl, but a fellow Brooklynite? Girl, I had to support!
the wrap life afia

Style above is Afia, available here
According to her site, most of the products are hand printed or handmade. They update the site quite often so there’s always something calling on your credit card. Heck when I made my first order, the Mozambican Rain wrap, they were only selling wraps and maybe a few pieces of jewelry. Now they’re selling tops, jewelry, and incense!
the wrap life scarf

Style above is called Zora; it’s currently sold out but returning late fall according to them on Instagram
The scarves I’ve ordered are made of cotton but you can easily wear a silk scarf underneath the wrap if you’re nervous about it rubbing against your hair and causing frizz or soaking up any oils you put in your hair. I wear them not only as a fashion statement but on days where I simply don’t want to comb my hair, LOL! The styles tend to sell out quick so if you see one that you like, snap it up quick.

Up next on my shopping list: Kenya Femi Top, Ayana Femi Top, Jamilah Wrap, Nala Wrap, and the Ayana Wrap. Check out their site and Instagram for more inspiration!

Come With Me: #NYFW (NYFW Vlog)

Fashion week has come and gone and this season, I decided to turn my camera on and vlog (sorta). I’m more of a live-in-the-moment kinda gal so vlogging is a new concept. I simply can’t remember to whip out my camera when something exciting is happening. That said, I remembered to capture the best parts (NYFW runway!)

It’s mostly me backstage for work so I didn’t have much time to talk to the camera. I totally spaced and didn’t film intro’s or talk throughout — forgive me since this is my second time trying to vlog in a week. But it’s pretty self-explanatory. I attended backstage and watched the show. Filming the WHOLE show would have been boring so I just included the final walks for Karen Walker, Zac Posen, Delpozo, and Marchesa. Watch it below.

If you missed part one, watch it here!
