How To Wear Monochromatic Outfits

Happy Weekend Fabbies! Well February just about came and went didn’t it?! How are we so close to March already?! Lately I have been looking over my old blog posts, (which, it’s also crazy to me that I have been blogging for almost four years now! Ya’ll have basically been watching my kids grow up on here! That’s so incredible to me!) Anyway, I have been looking at which posts you guys seem to enjoy reading the most, so that way I know what topics I should post more of. And food and fashion pretty much reign supreme on here. So because of that, I decided to start the week off with some fashion inspiration for you!  Continue reading “How To Wear Monochromatic Outfits”

What To Wear To Meet Your Significant Other’s Parents!

Happy Monday Fabbies! As Valentine’s Day nears, I began thinking about how lots of proposals happen on that day, and how meeting the significant other’s parents happens somewhere along the way. I know that meeting someone’s parents is often a big deal, and how you present yourself to them can be stressful for some. So for this “What To Wear Series, I decided to put together outfit ideas on what you could wear when you are planning to meet your boo thang’s parents. And of course the meeting places may vary. I mean, you could be meeting them for dinner inside their home, at a restaurant, at a family outing, or anywhere. But location aside, the key is to put some effort into your overall look, so when that meeting does take place, you’ve already impressed everyone before you even speak.  Continue reading “What To Wear To Meet Your Significant Other’s Parents!”

Quick And Easy “Ramen” Noodle Dish!

Hey Fabbies! I hope your 2018 is off to a great start already! One of my goals for this year was to blog more, and well look at me now! This is like my 5th post this month! Yassss! Anyway, I wanted to share a super simple recipe today, that is basically the same thing as the ever-popular, we-all-have-eaten-it and (some still do) ramen noodle dish! The difference is, though, is that this recipe’s noodles are healthier than the beloved ramen noodles. Does anybody really know what ramen noodles are made of? Well let’s see!

How To Wear Head-to-Toe Prints

Happy Friday Fabbies! I am such a big fan of colors, prints, funky textures and fabrics, and then mixing them altogether. I know this can be a bit much for some to embrace for themselves, but the thing about fashion is, you can literally do whatever the hell you want to do. There are no rules. My life’s motto is “more is more”, so it’s only natural that I would love to combine prints on top of prints on top of prints whenever I can, and for this blog post, I wanted to show you different ways that you can mix prints in your outfit, and not look like you stepped out of clown college!

Fashionable Meet and Greet Event in Phoenix I Attended!

Hey Fabbies! The other night I got a chance to go to a super fab Meet and Greet event put on by the organizers of Phoenix Fashion Week. They typically put on several events throughout the year, and rightfully so, as Phoenix is the one of the leading markets for Fashion in the Southwest U.S. This particular event was held at the ultra chic MonOrchid art gallery studio, which, according to its website, www.monorchid.com, “is the city’s premiere interdisciplinary creative hub in the heart of historic downtown. Built within a former warehouse, the studios at monOrchid are a prime setting for commercial and product shoots, modeling, sound recording and filmmaking.”

My Online Store Fab and Ravenous Boutique Turns 1!

Happy Friday Fabbies! Guess What?! My online store Fab & Ravenous Boutique has been operating for one year as of tomorrow! I launched my store on Friday the 13th on 1/13/17 last year, and when I tell you that the year FLEW by?! I can distinctly remember that whole day of my store launch: I had to take some last minute product photos, (I had already been doing that for weeks leading up to the launch), I was super nervous yet excited, I poured some champagne to celebrate the day, and I made vegan lasagna for dinner that night! Ha! Also, I think the nerves and stress of opening (that was all brought on by myself lol), caused me to have a wicked tooth ache. Ahhh what a time! When I got my first order, I was over the moon! I officially had an online boutique! Continue reading “My Online Store Fab and Ravenous Boutique Turns 1!”

Comfort Food! 5 Ingredient Vegan Lasagna

Hey Fabbies! Happy Sunday! Lately I have been getting so many messages on my social media asking for recipes, and I said to myself, “In 2018, I am going to post more recipes!” I know as someone who cooks often, even I am sometimes searching for different things to cook.

Outfit Of The Day: Entire Year 2017 Edition!

Happy New Year Fabbies! I hope you had a wonderful time bringing in the New Year! My New Year’s Eve was spent working on exciting things that I have in store for 2018! (More on that later, hehe. I have to so much to fill you guys in on!)  I also pretty much spent a good part of my weekend organizing my workspace at home, and organizing inventory for FRB. I wanted to make sure that I started the New Year off with everything sorted, compartmentalized, and ready for expansion! 😉 Continue reading “Outfit Of The Day: Entire Year 2017 Edition!”

25 Healthy Ways To Deal With Stress

Happy Monday Fabbies! We are officially in the last month of the year! How quickly did 2017 go?! This year really felt like one of the fastest years in my recent memory. Oftentimes when December and the Holidays roll around, people often get so stressed out: “what am I going to buy________?” “I don’t have enough money to get everyone gifts this year!” “I have to host 15 people at my house! I have so much to do!” And the list goes on. The Holidays often brings a lot of mixed emotions for many, and stress, and even depression often find their way into people’s mental psyche. I found a GREAT list on Pinterest that lists 25 ways to help you deal with stress, and I felt that my readers could definitely benefit from this list.

20 Confessions and Obsessions of The Birthday Girl-ME!

Hey Fabbies! Do you know what today is?! Of course you do! It’s my mother effin birthday!! (Insert dancing lady with the red dress here). That’s right. It’s my 35th time around the sun. Can you believe it? I can’t. I mean, I feel like I was just skyrocketing myself outta my mom’s vag! (She said that she when she was going into labor at the hospital, she had to cross her legs because I was coming so fast and the doctor’s weren’t even ready and set up yet to “catch” me. If I remember correctly, I shot out like a cannon. Well, I don’t remember, but that’s how the story is told. Which has kinda been the theme of my life! I often feel like I’m in a hurry for no reason! I walk fast, talk fast…) But I digress. Life comes at you fast. I can still distinctly remember all of my “milestone” birthdays, and it seems as if 35 came fast as hell. As birthdays tend to do I reckon.  I was talking to my mom yesterday about how many women don’t like to disclose their age the older they get, (including her and my Grandma Bert. You better not dare ask them how old they are! lol!), but I don’t mind telling my age. My mom always says: “You’re only as old as you feel.” And well, I feel like a ripe 25 year old! Ha!
