A Healthier You, makes a Happier You

Taken from http://www.raghava.net

It is that time of year again! Hot apple cider, bonfires, tailgating, and my favorite reason of all: tight jeans with boots and a sweater. Fall is full of cute comfy clothes, crisp cool air, and so many tailgating parties that it is hard to stay motivated from all the work of summer. For many it also means the start of a new semester or the stressful time of year again when your boss is checking the timetables a little more closely.

You will have a chance to preview, shop and get special discounts on their new career-chic collection and make sure you stay for the after party at 6pm for music, drinks and appetizers.

Fab Find Friday: Atlanta- Alexis Suitcase Consignment Shop



Sidenote: I have to admit, I was skeptical about coming to Atlanta because of all the negative press I'd heard about everyone wanting to be in the "industry" BUT that quickly changed when I got here. People are so friendly and everyone has other goals and aspirations besides being in the "biz."

Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE vintage shopping! So while I was out one day exploring the ATL, I stumbled across this amazing boutique in Buckhead and I was like a kid in a candystore lol.  Alexis Suitcase is part consignment shop and part boutique that sells the latest styles in good condition. People can bring in their gently used items and sell them or customers can purchase high end items like Chloe, Coach, Tiffany & Co. and Louis Vuitton at a fraction of retail prices. I scored 5 pieces for about $18 :-)

Alexis Suitcase is also having their End of Summer "Grab Bag" event, make sure you check it out at one of their 3 locations!!

Weekend Recap: Girls Night Out & Faces and Fashionistas



Happy Monday :-)

This weekend was SUPER BUSY for me! I booked a modeling gig as an Ambassador for AT&T's "Back to School" program which I will be doing all month long and in addition, I had model calls and a host of events to attend.Two of the events that I covered were "Girls Night Out" and "Faces & Fashionistas" on Saturday.

"Girls Night Out" was held at Christopher Stevens Salon and I must say, it was nothing like I expected. The event was definitely the place to be and consisted of hair and product demonstrations using the "Design Essentials" product line and other sponsors included POP-u-LURE, Waffle-licious, Result2fitness, Coconut 1800 Tequila and Lance Omar Thurman photography.

The 2nd event I attended was "Faces & Fashionistas" held at Honey's Child Boutique. The event consisted of skin care tips, make up demos, before and after photos, a masseuse and jewelry, shoes and skin care vendors. This event more laid back than the first but was very informative and guests walked away with more knowledge on how to accentuate their beauty and gift bags.

Check out the pics below from both events...

Cutting Calories: 10 simple tricks to keep the lbs. off

Taken from MyWeightLoss101.com

Summer maybe coming to an end, but that doesn't mean we should let go of all of the hard work that we put in over these past couple of months to look our best (you know... in that "little black dress.") The coming fall and winter months will be the TRUE test of will power and dedication to keep the pounds off especially with the holidays coming up. Don't fret, the simplest way to lose weight (and keep it off) is by cutting calories and you can drop a pound a week by cutting out 500 calories/day (based on a 150lbs woman- Yahoo Health)

Insight 2 Incite Magazine Spread!



Earlier this year, I booked a job for a fashion spread for "Insight2Incite" Magazine, which is an interactive lifestyle publication that promotes change through information, inspiration, and implementation. The shoot was to promote NV Showroom Boutique in downtown St. Louis (which had some AMAZING pieces.) It was TONS of fun and to top it all off, I got to work with 2 of my FAV hair and make up artists :-)

Check out some of the pics below.... and let me know what you think :-)
