- Graphic Sweaters
- Harem(slouchy) pants
- Midi(full) skirts
- Fur vest
- Plaid/Leopard print (tartan, houndstooth...)
- Boots(riding, ankle, over-the-knee...)
- Green(any shade)
These are some of the fashion items I love about Fall. Isn't it awesome how each piece can be paired up, to make up an outfit? Also, I have each item(not the same) in my closet, so there's no need for me to go shopping, just to follow the trend. I'm sure if you also search your closet, you'll find similar pieces. You don't have to 'break the bank', to look good. :)
Take care! :)xoxoOluwaseun S.

My weekend went well, I spent my weekend studying for 3 exams (coming up this week) and tried to relax as much as I can. I actually got a lot more done, than I thought I would. I'm very grateful for that! :)
The look below incorporates some of the things I love about Fall; colors and chunky knit sweaters! I've wanted faux leather pants (worn here) for so long, and I was able to purchase a pair in JcPenney earlier this year. I styled the outfit below around the pants. I couldn't complete the look without adding touches of gold, with the necklace and gold accents on the cross-body bag.

It's surely Fall here in Minnesota. The last few weeks, we had non-stop rain fall, then it snowed for two days or so, but it's now back to Fall-like weather. Check out some of the things I like about Fall below:

My entire outfit is 'almost' from Target. I wore this look some weeks ago. The denim shirt, dress, shoes and watch are ALL from Target! Can you believe it? I can. Lol! :) Ever since I bought this denim shirt, I always find an outfit to pair it with. I know now why most ladies refer to denim shirts as an essential. Haha!

Black and White is said to be on 'trend' for this season. Does it ever go 'out' of trend? :) Well, in honor of that, I created a look via polyvore, incorporating black and white. I also added bits of color (with the necklace and shoes), because it just brings 'life' to an outfit. Check out the look below:

Whenever I do updos with my natural hair, I always feel as though, I look like a boy (haha). No? Well, I guess it's because the twist is so 'flat' against my head! And, my cheeks look extra chubby in these pictures... Don't you just want to pinch them? Haha :)

No, you don't need to pay for any items you use (just to clarify). I guess, the more time I spend on there, and experiment, the easier creating my sets will be.
Anyways, check out the look below:
For a semi-casual look, the blazer can be replaced with a white or ivory colored cardigan, and the pumps with leopard print flats or wedges! :)
What occasion would you wear this look to?
Take care! :)

Recently, God has called me to make changes in some special areas of my life. The area I will speak on today however, as mentioned above, is health. Some of you may be wondering why exactly God would be concerned with what we eat and drink, how much we eat and drink, or how much or how little we exercise. But if we really stop and think about it, God concerns Himself with all areas of our lives- after all, He is the one who gave life to us!
The scripture that really brought it home for me was "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;” 1 Corinthians 6:19 [NIV]
Think about an actual temple or church where we worship....in most, eating isn't allowed. This is because it's a sacred place where we offer our sacrifices and lay down our troubles before God. We can't have the church looking filthy. Not only is this disrespectful to God but it is unsanitary and can affect our health. The same is true for our bodies-His temples...we have to be mindful of the things we are eating and drinking, how much we are eating and drinking, and how often we are exercising. Does it make sense now? I hope so!
For me personally, it has been a struggle. I was never an 'unfit' person as I was actively involved growing up. Nevertheless, the older I got, the lazier I became-sad but true. I have gotten serious though about changing this because I strongly believe, that is what God desires for my life and possibly, yours as well.
Here are some HEALTHful tips I would like to share with you:
1. Try not to eat meals, sweets, or carbs past 8 pm
***Healthier substitutes: have breakfast, snack throughout the day (healthy snacking: granola bar, yogurt, fruits, and so forth), grab lunch if you can, and have a filling dinner... Before bed when tempted to eat, grab a fruit and drink a glass of water

Happy Monday, Expressionistas! I hope you're all having a great start to your Monday morning. On my way back home from running some errands (with my sister) yesterday, it began to snow a bit. On walking out this morning, it looked like a Winter Wonderland! :)
Today's guest post is brought to you by the lovely Sade of In My Sunday Best. I know most ladies (if not all) like some sort of makeup. We do have to admit that, sometimes it's difficult to find the right shade of foundation or blush for your skintone. That's where Sade comes in to rescue us. Today, she'll be expanding your knowledge today about makeup and finding the right shade for you.
