Blogmas #17: New Year’s Eve Look #2…

Hey my friends! The countdown is on…are you all set for New Year’s Eve? If not, here is look #2 for those attending a more formal event.

This attire is formal, yet fun and sexy. I paired this dress with strappy nude heels. The pair I’m wearing has gold metallic straps around the ankle, but plain nude will work just fine.

To make this attire a little more fun, I added the ‘sparkle’ gold hoop earrings by N A Waterman”Eye Catching Jewelry”. In look #1 I wore the same hoops for a more casual look. I’m showing how you can wear these pair of earrings with any attire. You can wear them with jeans and a tee or with this long sequined wrap dress.

To get yourself a pair of these hoop earrings, go to my online boutique and enter the code: sparkle for an exclusive discount.

Until next time my friends, night night πŸ’‹

Blogmas #6: Top 5 Gifts for Men on a Budget

Hey my friends!

Have you started your Christmas shopping? There’s less than 19 days til the big day. I know as each holiday goes by, it can get more difficult to buy that perfect gift, especially for men.

Let’s be real, there aren’t really many gift options when it comes to finding a gift for that man in your life. I mean how many sweaters can one man wear? And how many tools can we possibly purchase?

I’ve come up with my top 5 gifts for men that are affordable.

Fragrance Sampler

The sampler I chose is available at Macy’s and cost $35. The great thing about samplers is that he can give each cologne a test run. He can then choose the cologne he loves best. Now you can purchase the full size for his birthday or father’s day πŸ˜‰.

Backpack with USB charger

Now I don’t know about you, but all the men in my life loves there gadgets and always need to charge something. This backpack is available on Amazon and it’s less than $25.

Grooming kit

I think this is a necessary gift. Just as we women love to pamper ourselves, so do men and they deserve it. This kit I chose is available at Target and is less than $20.

Amazon Fire TV Stick

What man doesn’t love to just chill and watch tv? What’s better than to get them the fire stick so they can stream some of their favorite shows?

Jewelry

Now you know I could not create a gift guide without some N A Waterman jewelry…

A great gift you can get that man in your life is a genuine stone bracelet from N A Waterman “Eye Catching Jewelry”. I bet some of you didn’t know we sold men jewelry. Well we do and the bracelets are all less than $30.

Now that you have a few ideas, happy shopping πŸ’‹

Supporting Small Businesses…

Hey my friends!

Happy October 1st…

On Sunday, September 29th, my sister and I attended an event at the NJ Convention and Expo Center to support local businesses.

The event focused on natural hair and beauty. As you walk throughout the expo, you found local businesses showcasing their handcrafted products. You could find natural hair products, facial and body scrubs, hair and body wraps, paintings, sculptures, etc. All of the vendors were extremely creative, but there was one vendor that truly caught my eyes.

Sade’s Place creates beautiful ethnic dolls with natural hairstyles. As you saw from the video, each doll is unique, amazing and unlike any doll you would find in a toy store.

The owners of Sade’s Place are the dynamic duo, Sade’ and Tawana. If you did not attend the expo for an opportunity to purchase a beautiful doll, they are located on Etsy.

We definitely enjoy going out to events where we can support small businesses. As an owner of a small business, I understand the importance of supporting one another.

I encourage any blogger, especially those that has a business, to support your community of small businesses.

Until next time, night night πŸ’‹
