Gold, Leather,& Studs...Oh my!

Fall, Fall, Fall,....

Hey Mamas!

It's getting cold out there and you know what that means...pull out the fall clothes. Start sorting through your clothes for the must go and the must have. Autumn trends are looking hot this season. Check out this list of trends you might want to add to your wardrobe!

  • Gold is the color for the fall. Whether it be a shoes or hand bag have fun including this metallic in your wardrobe.
  • Studded purses will be a hit this fall. You will find studs on just about any size or style of purse.
  • Clutches are making a big come back! Look for chocolate suede, studded silver, or sparkling gold clutches to complete your look for girls night out.
  • Suede shoes of any kind or color has always been a perfect accessory for a fall wardrobe.
  • Leather blouses and skirts will be a hot trend to try.
  • Sweater dresses in bright bold or baby soft colors will keep you cozy and cute. Complete this look with a pair of suede knee boots and leggings.

Quick tip Mamas: When sorting through your clothes make three piles *Keepers, *Throw away, and *Give away. Also make a list of Staple clothes you need to update like basic t-shirts, black pants and skirts, a nice neutral colored blazer, etc. If you will be shopping soon for the beautiful Autumn weather make sure to do an inventory of your closet. Find clothes that will match up with other items that already exist in your wardrobe. I can never stress enough get your body measured. Proper fitted undergarments make any look great.

Have fun!

No More Muffin Tops!

Hey mamas!

Have you ever heard the saying crack kills! I remember not too long ago going to my son's school orientation. I saw so much butt crack and muffin tops I wanted to scream. Whatever happen to women wearing jeans that fit them properly? So we think I got the jeans up my thighs and over my butt they must fit. Shame on you muffin top mamas...stop right now. Fall is around the corner and now is the opportunity to redeem yourself from the horrible dress habits you display. Check out these tips on how to find the perfect jeans!

  • Big booty mamas stay away from jeans with big bulky pockets on the butt area. Also try dark demin instead of lighter washes
  • Small booty mamas get jeans with the pockets and detail on the jeans
  • If you have big thighs don't get those jeans that look like they have stretch marks on the thigh area.
  • Short mamas get your jeans tailored so the jeans wont drag on the floor.
  • If your tall it's good to know your inseam and go from there. If you sit down with the jeans make sure they still come down to the ankle.
  • Also know that demin relaxes after being worn.
  • Find out your lower body measurements before you go shopping.
  • Your jeans should fit but not be too tight that your fighting you way into them.
  • Older women stick with dark demin and not the light stone wash mom jeans ,lol. Dark demin you can wear to work and then go casual.
  • Whether it be a skinny jeans,boot cut, high waisted,...figure out what is best for your body type.

Okay mamas say goodbye to muffin tops and hello to classy style. Be a lady this Fall!

Goodbye Lady Lily

Hey Mamas...
It's been awhile but now is the season for me to write. My mother called me and told me my Aunt Bibi is in a hospice. She always told me before she was very ill to call her. I would say in the back of my head I'll call her after I get done with this or that. Now I want to talk to her and she isn't up to talking because death weighs the spirit down. Her spirit now ready to leave and the flesh holding on to something that wants to be free.
My Aunt was so full of life and care free. My favorite memory of Aunt Bibi was her teaching me how to crotche. Her long delicate fingers would spin the yarn with the needle. She made hats for men and women, she was a painter, and she was special to me. So how do you say goodbye to someone ready to leave?
I made a picture for her with this poem:
In a field of lilies
I find peace.
Christ talks to me in the whispers of the wind...calling me home.
I see the dove fly towards the sunset.
He calls me home.
I remember my youth and kiss the sky.
Close my eyes and he takes me home.
Angels sing holy praises and my heart can rest ...saying bye to the flesh.
I am home.
Tell someone goodbye before its too late.
