Liquid Leggings

This is another look that anyone can wear: liquid leggings. I like it as a nighttime look; try pairing it with a black top.

Shop It To Me

Shop it to Me is a site that brings the sales to you! You can make a profile, pick out your favorite brands, and they let you know each day by email which items from those lines have gone on sale from at a variety of online stores. It's a nice start to my day :).

Could you imagine wearing this dress to prom? It's so pretty. I am loving Robert Rodriguez right now. He also makes everyday clothing as well.

Best site for coupon codes: retailmenot.com


Before you checkout at an online store, check out www.retailmenot.com to see if there is a coupon code that applies to you. Sometimes I google for promotion codes, but a lot of the google results have expired coupons, so this site has saved me a lot of time.

Looks I Love: Off the Shoulder



One reason I love this look is that it looks great on absolutely everyone, from skinny to full-figured. I especially like this look for night.


How cute is this?

The Hoop: A Necessary Jewerly Basic

Hot New Trend: Peplum Dresses




One reason I love this trend is because the peplum style is a staple of Ghanaian clothing. It's so feminine because it highlights what I think is one of, if not the sexiest, part of a woman's body: her hips. A lot of clothing and women attempt to hide this feature, and I have no clue why! I'm a pretty curvy girl, but I actually wish my hips were bigger! One thing I like about Beyonce is how she embraces and emphasizes her hips.

Divas, let me know if you get or have one of these!

Here are some examples of Ghanaian attire. I just pulled them off of Google images, so if this is you, I'm not a stalker, I just like your dress :)!

Unique Gold Earrings

How long do you keep your weave / braids in?

When your goal is length and retention, how long do you keep your weave / braids in? I have heard a lot of different things from 3 weeks to 6 months.

What works best for you?

White Button Downs

Some of these come in other colors as well:


I love a good cardigan

Don't Leave Me Summer

MAC Fall 2009 Style Black Collection

Remember the black lipliner from back in the day? Well I was feeling nostalgic so I went over to the MAC counter to see if they had one. I figured MAC or Fashion Fair would be the most likely to have it. Neither did, but suggested I just use any eyeliner.

However, guess what is coming out?? An all-black limited edition line starting September 24th! Yes, all black: black lipstick and black lipgloss! I don't think that I would use it alone, but layer it. Maybe it could turn red lipstick into burgundy, purple into almost-black? Can't wait to try this! FYI, MAC Limited Edition Collections usually sell out quickly.

Red hot AND classy: it can be done!

What's better than a night on the town with your man?





Looking fabulous while doing so! Isn't this dress to die for? It's the Eva Franco Alexa dress. This would be so perfect for a friday night date. It's going for $109.




This next one I am thinking Sunday brunch:






It's really short but I'm still loving it! It's going for $69. When you zoom in on the picture on the site, it looks really well-made.
There are a lot more cute classy dresses at the Eva Franco sale at Ideeli. It's one of those "invitation-only" sites that have temporary designer sales. If you need a invite link, you can use mine: http://www.ideeli.com/invite/martha06 .
The sale ends in less than a day, or when it sells out.
