At the end of May, my family and I took a quick little weekend getaway trip to LA/Anaheim, California to attend the annual Vegan Food and Beer Festival. I have been wanting to go to the this festival since I learned about it while living in Los Angeles two years ago, but our schedules were never free during the times that had it the last two years. So this year was our year to go! While the Vegan Festival was in Los Angeles, we stayed in Anaheim, CA which is nearby. I meant to blog about our trip sooner, but I did not realize how many pictures I had compiled from the trip, so going through, editing, and deciding which pics to post took a lot longer than expected. But this post comes at the perfect time anyway, because I have another upcoming trip to Dallas, Texas this weekend, where I am going to visit my older sister and nephew, PLUS see one of my good friends, Brittanii, who is having a birthday party at her house! I will definitely write a blog post all about that trip when I return next week, because I know it will be a long weekend full of much-needed girl time and FUN!
But back to our fab weekend in Cali; it was a quick weekend 4-day trip, and I will share what I wore, what we ate, (except for what I ate at the actual Vegan Fest; you’ll get to see all of that on my next vlog on YouTube when it’s ready!), and how much fun was had!

Hey Fabbies! Earlier this month, I celebrated six months of my online store, Fab & Ravenous Boutique being open! I opened my store on Friday, January 13th, 2017, (I will never forget that date. Friday the 13th! Easy to remember right? haha) and have learned a lot in that short amount of time of being open. I will write an entire post on that at a later date. 🙂 But for now, I wanted to share some of my favorite looks that I have worn from my store over the last 6 months! Some items are sold out, but I still have many items available for you to shop. I will be expanding my merchandise a great deal as the summer progresses, and I cannot wait for you guys to see!

Last weekend, my family and I went out to dinner to our favorite Ethiopian restaurant, GoJo, and this of course gave me the perfect excuse to wear something fun. (Rule #1, always look for a reason to wear something fun. ;p) Anyway, I opted to wear a halter neck jumpsuit that I’ve had for over a year now, and have never worn. What’s great about this jumpsuit is that the material is soft and stretchy, and it has a super long inseam of about 36 inches, which meant even with my heels on, the pant legs still came to the floor. One of my favorite places to shop that caters to tall gals like myself is www.alloy.com. That is where the fabulous jumpsuit that I chose to wear for dinner came from! I love Alloy because they have extra long inseams on their jeans, dresses, and jumpsuits, and all at an afffordable price! Continue reading “Look Of The Week!”
Hey Fabbies! I was preparing to write a blog post showing off what I thought was a cute little outfit that displayed my current style, but as I started scrolling through my photo albums, I had come to the realization that I have been drawn to a few things: oversized tees and hoodies paired with leggings (or nothing), and PRINTS. My style somewhat evolves every few months (this includes me changing my hair often lol), but never really intentionally. I am just drawn to certain styles or colors, and go with that. These days, it’s all about comfort, but because my motto has always been “more is more”, bold and fun prints just sort of takes my nice and cozy style from boring to exciting.

Who’s in the mood for some hair talk? I am going on month 2 now with sporting my green hair, and know that sometime in March, it will be time to change my hair color. I mean, one cannot just keep green hair the entire year! As of today, I have no idea what color or style that I want to do next, so during these times, I love to browse Instagram and Pinterest for hair inspiration. Well over the past few days, I have found more than just inspiration–I have found art! Continue reading “Let’s Get Lost In The Drama of Hair!”
Greetings Fabbies! If you follow me on any of my social media, then you know by now that I am a huge fan of hair accessories: hats, scarves, beanies, turbans, headbands, jeweled headbands, and more recently (within the last year), cat-ear headbands. If there’s something that I can accessorize my hair with, then I want it! Hair accessories are not only added decoration to your already fabulous self, but they also serve the purpose of helping with “bad” hair days, or help to spruce up an otherwise simple hairdo.

Hey Fabbies! As many of you know by now, I launched Fab & Ravenous Boutique 2 days ago, this past Friday, January 13th, 2017! (Which is now officially FRB‘s birthday! hehe). It has been a hectic past several weeks, but I am so happy to say that the site is now open for everyone to go shopping, and I have such cute merchandise for all of you! From funky earrings, to custom-designed coffee mugs and tees, my store will definitely be a reflection of all of the things that I love! If it’s on my site, I genuinely love it and most likely have worn it all haha. Continue reading “Fab & Ravenous Boutique Is Officially Open For Business!”
What’s with this “Fabbie” word that you keep seeing around the site? A Fabbie is a woman who is strong, confident, fearless, and lives life on her own terms. A Fabbie has style that is all her own. A Fabbie is not afraid to be exactly who she is, whoever that may be. Fabbies love to celebrate life in general, and look at life as a gift that should be lived Fabulously, every single day. A Fabbie could be a lawyer, an artist, a mother, a teacher, a CEO, a salesclerk, a bartender, a flight attendant, an accountant, or whomever! A Fabbie also is very supportive of other women, and loves to celebrate their successes as if they were her own. Fabbies love being a part of a good “Girl Squad”, but also knows that she can shine on her own. Most of all, a Fabbie is also kind. Fabbies love to see other people happy, and will make their best effort to add zest and delight to other people’s lives as well.

Happy New Year almost! Okay it’s not quite the New Year yet, but I wanted to do a post on my various hairstyles, hair colors, and just all around craziness that I have done with my hair for the entire year of 2016 as we come to a close. Year after year, I continue to have fun with my hair, by experimenting with colors, braids, twists, and really just whatever I feel I am in the mood for. (You can look back at some of my hairstyles over the last few years here: https://fabandravenous.com/category/hairstyles/. I honestly color and bleach my hair with reckless abandon. If the dye says keep it on your hair for 20 minutes, I typically push it to 40 minutes. I know I know! My hair is gonna fall out right?! Haha ehhh…if it does then I’ll just start over and do something more fabulous. I do try to take care of my hair by washing/moisturizing/deep conditioning it as best as I can, but I’m no hair expert when it comes to the healthfulness of one’s hair. I just kind of…go.

Happy Friday Fabbies! November has always been my favorite month of the year for as long as I can remember. Growing up, November meant Thanksgiving, colder weather, the start of my basketball season, and also, my birthday! (What’s up fellow Scorpios!) So with everything going on every November, I also remember being very busy as well. November is always a busy month for me, no matter what stage of my life that I’m in. It just seems to always be the case. I mean, look at me now, I’m in the process of finalizing everything for my online store. In November! Can you say, Team #nosleep?! But even with a busy month ahead, I am still SO excited, because November is basically the best month ever. Continue reading “Hello November!”
