Hi Dolls, 
When I was in middle and high school, I was the girl who walked around with a sketchbook, drawing every chance I got.  I was obsessed with graffiti!  I low-key wished I had enough guts to tag a wall or a train but of course, I was too chicken to ever do such a thing!  I settled on drawing it instead and my classmates would pay me $5 bucks to draw and color their names in graffiti-like font.  Yes, I was that good!!!  To this day, I still love a beautifully graffitied wall!  It's art I truly respect and appreciate and I'm especially excited to see these walls pop up all over Jax!  This pink graffitied wall was the perfect backdrop for my last photoshoot!  It complimented my look well!  What do you guys think?
If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know that I am a sucker for all things off-the shoulder!  When I first saw this romper, I literally vocalized the words " I NEED!!!!" 
 I love the lacey detail around the edges, the silky black base, POCKETS, and the pastel butterflies! I paired it with these cute pink lace-up heels from JustFab and if the look doesn't ooze Spring, I don't know what will!
People always ask me where I find my cute rompers, jumpers, and maxi dresses and my answer is typically the same every time!  Ross Dress for Less, TJ Maxx, and Marshall's!  If you don't like shopping in these stores, we probably can't be friends.  No, but seriously, I ALWAYS find cute stuff in these stores.  You just have to have a little patience and be willing to go through the racks!  There are hidden gems in between those racks, I promise!

In other news, have you all heard the new Drake single, "Nice For What"?  You've gotta admit that Drake has a smooth way of creating these anthems for us ladies!  This song has all of us girls saying "Nice For What?  All Summer 18"  pun, most definitely intended.  The next two pics are my "Nice for What" looks lol!  You all know I usually show all 32 when I take my pics because as you can see my RBF is intimidating.  However, considering what I'm currently mentioning here, these pics seem fitting.  
For the few of you who may have been living under a rock and  haven't a clue as to who Drake is (side-eye) and what this song is all about, let me briefly explain in my own words.    For all self-respecting ladies out here doing their thing, working hard, making their own money, living independently, having a lot to offer, and bringing much to the table, what on Earth do you have to "be nice" to these lames for?  There have been soooooooo many times, I've heard, "Smile ma", or  "be nice ma", from random guys I don't really know, who couldn't touch me with a 10-foot pole.  While I am in fact a nice person and smile quite often, I don't owe them that.  Get ready to see "Nice for What" hashtagged on pics all summer long!
What do you think about Drakes new single?  I love that Lauryn Hill is sampled through out the track!  Love her!
As always, thanks so much for stopping by and have a marvelous week!

Hi Loves!
Have you ever thought about what kind of new diet fads are going to be around in the next 10 years?  I mean seriously, when I was a kid you either ate meat or you didn't.  To be quite honest, fad or not, I'd be a pescatarian if the lifestyle wasn't too expensive to maintain.  In fact, I've tried it once before.  My grocery bill got a little too pricey for me to keep it up though... and I missed chicken.  Anywho, I love seafood so when I was recently invited to Brio Tuscan Grill to try out their new seafood celebration menu, I was ALL IN!  I love Brio and have always had pleasant dining experiences there.  As I've mentioned before, they truly live up to the meaning of their name, "lively" or "full of life" and it definitely shows in their food!  From now until June 17th, you can enjoy the new Spring menu at Brio!  If you love seafood, you're going to be hooked, pun intended, because each and every one of these seafood dishes are delicious!  
SEAFOOD CELEBRATION!
There are certain things that are must-haves when I dine out.  For some that's appetizers and for others it might be dessert.  For me, it's a cocktail or glass of wine and what's better than one cocktail?  Three cocktails!  My friend and I sampled all three of the new cocktails from the new Spring menu and all of them were light, fresh, and tasty!
(From L-R)
Blackberry Infused Cosmo:  
This was my friend's favorite cocktail.  It was a blackberry and pineapple infusion with black raspberry liquor, lime juice, and basil simple syrup.
Blackberry Cooler:  
Blackberry infusion with rum, black raspberry liquor, pineapple and lime juice, and basil simple syrup.
Blackberry Fizz:
  This was my favorite.  It reminded me of a wine cooler.  It was a blackberry infusion of black raspberry liquor, Moscato, lemon, and lemon & lime juice.  
Chef's Seasonal Bruschetta
I love that Brio switches up the bruschetta every season.  This spring bruschetta is dangerous.  I believe I ate 4 of them while we were waiting on our main course.  These delicious little pieces of Italian bread were topped with olive oil, cheese, red wine cooked onions, asparagus, and proscuitto.  Ummmmm...AMAZING!
 Calamari Fritto Misto: 
 I usually don't care much for calamari, but these were pretty good.  They were fried to a golden brown with pepperoncini, and aoili and pomodoro sauce for dipping.  It was a perfect starter for the seafood dinner coming up!
 Grilled Salmon Fresca:
This dish was so beautiful to me!  I am going to try to recreate this at home.  Not only was is appeasing to the eye, it tasted great too.   The salmon was grilled and seasoned to perfection and topped with grilled asparagus, sweet potatoes, spinach, red peppers, pesto vinaigrette, Feta cheese, tomatoes, and finished with a balsamic drizzle.
 Shrimp Mediterranean:
This dish was pretty light and very flavorful.  The shrimp were grilled and had a little kick.  They were on a bed of orzo, farro, broccoli, asparagus, grape tomatoes. spinach, Feta, and a pesto vinaigrette.  
 Lobster and Shrimp Ravioli
This dish was AMAZEBALLS!  It came with the same spicy black pepper cream used in the Spicy Shrimp & Eggplant dish and I could literally drink the stuff it's so good!  The ravioli were full of the lobster and shrimp mixture and there were loads of spinach and tomatoes throughout the dish.  Seriously guys, this dish is everything!  
As if we could handle anything else after the amazing meal, we were brought the seasonal Creme Brulee cheesecake.  It was made with vanilla bean, caramelized sugar, and a drizzling of caramel.  It was delicious and incredibly decadent!  We shared it and still couldn't finish it.   
As always, I thoroughly enjoyed dining at Brio.  Everything is always deliciously prepared.  As I mentioned earlier, the Spring Seafood menu will be available until June 17th so you can take your mom for Mother's Day, your Dad for Father's day, and your friends and family members for a Graduation dinner!  It is that time of year ya know!  If you do, you can partake in the gift card promotion Brio is having during this time.  For every $100 spent in gift card purchases, guests will receive a free $25 bonus card that can be used towards all of these amazing dishes! 
 Head over to Brio's website and read more about their new menu, purchase a gift card, and make your next dinner reservation and as always, thank you for stopping by!  Have a fabulous day!

Hi Dolls!
"Pretty Girls Love Trap Music" and Pretty Girls wear Pretty Pieces
I'll be the first to admit that I have my moments of bougie but when I hear "No Hands" by Waka Flocka or "T-shirt" by Migos, all couth and inhibition go out the window for a good 3 and half minutes!  Don't judge.  I mean what's not to love about a song of no substance with a dope beat?  Ok, so maybe these songs do have substance, for someone, but I digress.  Speaking of trap music, I really wanted to visit Two Chainz's Pink Trap House in Atlanta when it was...well...pink.  However, I hear the neighbors pitched a fit and it's no longer a thing.  Anyways, besides loving trap music, pretty girls love looking pretty and Nicole Banks has everyone covered in the style department!  Her boutique, Shop Pretty Pieces, has one of a kind, stylish pieces for everyone of all shapes and sizes!  I haven't met a item of clothing or an accessory from her boutique I didn't like and this amazing floral, yellow, assymetrical peplum didn't disappoint either!
Now that Spring is upon us, this top is ideal and an absolute show stopper!  It literally oozes spring!  After this photo shoot, I met a friend for brunch and received so many wonderful comments on my ensemble!  Everyone wanted to know where I got my peplum from!  It is eye-catching!   The floral print is so bold and I believe women of color look glorious in yellow!  Needless to say when I saw this top, I had to have it!
It can easily be dressed up or down...although rocking it with white distressed jeans like I did, still looks quite dressy!  I can also see wearing it with a pencil skirt.  
These heels with the colorful tassels were the perfect shoe to bring out the colors in the top.
This is why I love Shop Pretty Pieces, the items are so unique, affordable, and most of them are very colorful! 
 To me, there's nothing better than rocking colorful attire in the Spring and Summer!  I've definitely got my eye on some pieces I NEED for summer!
Recently, Shop Pretty Pieces expanded from online to a brick and mortar and I attended the Grand Opening festivities!  I've only known Nicole for a short period of time, but she is definitely one of the most inspiring women I've met in a while.  She has a great story and is extremely humble and passionate. I am really happy for her success with the Shop Pretty Pieces Boutique and I look forward to seeing how God will continue to bless her and her business going forward.  
With Spring in full effect and Summer lurking, you should definitely visit the Shop Pretty Pieces website!  She has so many cute looks, you are sure to find something you'll like!  If you live in the area, stop in at the actual brick and mortar on Atlantic Blvd. and shop until your heart's content!  
Pretty Girls wear Pretty Pieces!  
So really quick, before I go, what's your favorite trap song?  Don't you dare tell me you don't have one, lol!   Let me know in the comments below, have a fabulous weekend, and as always, thank you for stopping by!

Hi Lovelies,
Sometimes after a long day (or week) at work, if you're like me, you enjoy winding down with a nice glass of wine, a good dinner, and maybe some soft music and candles. On other days, you prefer to meet up with friends for happy hour, good drinks, and good laughs!  You know what's better than happy hour?  Late night happy hour!  I don't know about you but some days I don't get off of work until 6pm, sometimes 6:30pm, and by the time I'm able to meet up with friends, happy hour is over.  For those of you with crazy schedules like mine,  I've got good news!  Hawkers Asian Street Fare has decided to keep the party going and are now offering new late night happy hours from Wednesday through Saturday starting at 10pm to the close of business.  They have also extended operating hours from Wednesday through Thursday from 11am to 11pm, and Friday and Saturday from 11am to 12:30 am.  Soooo, no more excuses as to why you can't meet up with the girls for drinks after work!  Of course, I had to stop in to get a sneak peak at this new menu and with everything coming in at $3 bucks, it totally works for me!
These were the Korean Twice Fried Wings.  They come coated in a Gochujang sauce topped with peanuts, sesame, and cilantro.  Imagine a General Tso and Sesame Chicken had a baby... this would be it.  The wings were super crunchy since they're twice fried but super juicy inside.  I enjoyed these the most out of everything we tried.
Next up was the Golden Wontons.  These were a surprise to me.  I was expecting them to be filled with some sort of seasoned cream cheese but they had shrimp in them which were just as good.  They were fried to a crisp and had my favorite sweet chili on the side for dipping.
Chicken Eggrolls...nothing to see here folks.  Just your basic, egg noodle wrapped chicken, cabbage, and carrots,  There seemed to be an over sprinkling of five-spice that is typical but over powered the overall flavor of the eggrolls.  Needless to say, I didn't care much for these but if you really enjoy five spice flavoring, these would be your jam.
Lastly were the meatballs with curry sauce.  Ehhh...I don't know...these weren't a fav either however, the late happy hour menu dishes are only $3.00 so it wasn't that much of a loss.  I just know the next time I'll order double wings!  Check out the rest of the late night happy hour options below.
We told the waiter that the one thing they're missing is fried rice!  I think that would set off the late night happy hour menu.  Plus, for those doing heavy drinking, the rice would help soak up all the alcohol.  Don't ya think?  Speaking of drinks, we did indulge a little.  I tried the Tiger Sake Bomb!  It was an interesting experience as I've never had one before but since I don't care much for beer, I ended up ordering a glass of wine.  Both of which were also $3 bucks!  
Ooooh and of course we had Roti Canai!  That will forever be my favorite dish from Hawkers.  It was a given that the Roti be on the late night happy hour menu!  I'll definitely be back, late night, for the roti, wings, and wine!  
Which items would you get? 
 Let me know below.
As always, thanls so much for stopping by!
Have an amazing day!

Hello Gorgeous!
This is exactly what you're going to hear all day after getting pampered at The Bardot (pronounced Bar-Dough)!  I recently had the opportunity to spend a little girl time with The Bardot Babes and some of my fav fellow influencers at the Bardot Beauty brunch a couple weekends ago and it was a great time from the moment we walked in, to the time we left. The Bardot Beauty Lounge is definitely a one stop shop for all things beauty!  The Bardot is not like your typical salon, in fact don't even call it a salon!  Being true to its name, it is a beauty lounge.  The morning really felt like a slumber party at a besties house!  We laughed, we brunched, we sang and danced to the latest videos, and we did all of this while getting glammed up by the Bardot Babes!  The Bardot is located in St. Augustine and from lash extensions to blow-outs, microblading to manis and pedis, they have everything needed to make sure you leave feeling radiant, refreshed, and ready to strut your stuff!
I recently posted the picture below on Instagram and asked if anyone is into self affirmations?  I absolutely love that when you first walk into The Bardot, you are greeted with the hot pink, light-up sign that says "Hello Gorgeous"!  Imagine having this in your bathroom and reading it every morning when you flip the switch...you'll always feel beautiful!  I'm officially on the hunt for this sign!  It's the perfect self affirming home decor piece!  
So before I get into all things beauty, I have to take a moment to shout out The Preserved Restaurant for providing us with a delicious meal for brunch!  I mean..do you see this glorious dish of Shrimp and Grits!?!  It was almost to perfect to eat...almost!  It definitely tasted as good as it looked!   
We also enjoyed a breakfast quiche, yogurt and fresh fruit, salad, and champagne of course! Chef Brian Whittington definitely knows what he's doing over there at The Preserved Restaurant!  Honestly, when I found out brunch was being catered by them, I knew it was going to be BOMB!

The Bardot also has Old City Brew cold brew coffee on tap!!!  On tap, folks!  

I don't know if this is a normal thing, but I was so enamored by the fact that there's coffee on tap that getting one has been added to my list of "Things I Need to Have in My Life Right Now"!  Beer on tap, yes, wine on tap, sure, but cold brew coffee...unheard of!  Okay maybe I'm exaggerating a little but I FREGGIN' LOVE it!  Soooo Universe, it's so cute and I want one for my classroom!  I'd be the Teacher of the Year for that reason alone!

Now let's talk beauty, shall we?!?!
THE BARDOT BEAUTY LOUNGE
What's black and white, and hot pink all over?  The Bardot Beauty Lounge!  The decor is very chic and screams GIRL POWER!  I especially love the color scheme of the pedicure area!  The black and white cattle print is the perfect touch!  

This lounging area is beautiful and gives off vintage vibes!  I'm telling you, I was getting inspiration, left and right, for my own home.  I love the mauve tones and white and gold accents!  When speaking to the owner, Britnye Shore, she said the sofa is indeed vintage and you can look at it and see that it is in pristine condition!
I'm a total sucker for branding and packaging, so to see all of these gorgeous Smith and Cult nail lacquers, with the hot pink and black packaging, through out the lounge, added to the overall BAD-AZZNESS of The Bardot!  
Seriously!  What's not to love about these bottles of polish!
You're also going to find make-up, jewelry, and all sorts of beauty products through out the lounge for purchase.  I think that makes for the perfect decor accents!  Wouldn't you say?
Speaking of accents, the next time I go back to The Bardot, I'm 100% going to purchase one of these turban shower caps.  In true "Girly-Girl" fashion, you have to be chic at all times, even when in the shower!  I think it would be perfect for when you're traveling or even to walk around in the house with!  It sure beats the heck out of those rachity old plastic shower caps!  So chic! So cute!  So me!

THE BARDOT SERVICES
As I mentioned before, The Bardot Beauty Lounge is a one stop shop!  Offering waxing, lashes, makeup, haircare, cuts, color, and nails, they provide everything you need to get glammed up.  During our morning at the Bardot, we got to experience their services!    
I was excited to get The Bardot Makeover because it included airbrush, which I've never had before, and lashes.  
The air on my face from the airbrush application was very relaxing! I couldn't believe how quickly Devan, my make-up artist, was able to cover my entire face with foundation.  I can see how this would be the best technique to use for a wedding party.

Speaking of wedding parties, The Bardot also offers Bridal services and are willing to travel to you!  I know right!  They'll come to you in their super cute Bardot Beauty Bus!  So picture this...it's your  wedding day, and you step outside onto a bus with all your best girlfriends, to get glammed up to your favorite tunes while sipping champagne!  What more can you ask for? This would definitely add character to your "Big Day" memories!

 I felt like a knock-out once my make up was done!
The other ladies also got make-overs!  Some of them also did blow outs with styles and manicures.
Do you remember me mentioning earlier that it felt like a slumber party?  Well, we were all in one open space getting beautified and that flat screen on the wall played all the newest videos to some of our favorite tunes on the radio right now!  It was a good time!
My girl, Tanner Mann, got a gel mani with talented nail artist, Janean Johnson! 
Janean has been a nail artist for over 6 years and prides herself with specilaizing in natural nails only!  She does such an amazing job on nails!  Check out her instagram page for a little inspiration for your next mani!
She also hooked your girls toes up because after hiding these feet for the winter, I was in serious need of a pedicure!  
So ladies and gents, if you haven't been convinced by now that The Bardot is where you should go for your next self-care day, let me put it plainly....
 If you live in Jax, make an appointment, get in your car, make that quick drive St. Augustine, and get your LIFE! (Make sure to stop at The Preserved afterwards for something amazing to eat!)
While you're there get to know Britnye, the owner and all of her fabulous "Bardot Babe" beauticians!  They are all rockstars and a true delight to be around!  
~Now~
Which service would you get?  Let me know below!
As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous week and be sure to visit The Bardot's website here and IG here!!!

Bardot Beauty Lounge (Beauty Blogger Brunch)

Hello Gorgeous!
This is exactly what you're going to hear all day after getting pampered at The Bardot (pronounced Bar-Dough)!  I recently had the opportunity to spend a little girl time with The Bardot Babes and some of my fav fellow influencers at the Bardot Beauty brunch a couple weekends ago and it was a great time from the moment we walked in, to the time we left. The Bardot Beauty Lounge is definitely a one stop shop for all things beauty!  The Bardot is not like your typical salon, in fact don't even call it a salon!  Being true to its name, it is a beauty lounge.  The morning really felt like a slumber party at a besties house!  We laughed, we brunched, we sang and danced to the latest videos, and we did all of this while getting glammed up by the Bardot Babes!  The Bardot is located in St. Augustine and from lash extensions to blow-outs, microblading to manis and pedis, they have everything needed to make sure you leave feeling radiant, refreshed, and ready to strut your stuff!
I recently posted the picture below on Instagram and asked if anyone is into self affirmations?  I absolutely love that when you first walk into The Bardot, you are greeted with the hot pink, light-up sign that says "Hello Gorgeous"!  Imagine having this in your bathroom and reading it every morning when you flip the switch...you'll always feel beautiful!  I'm officially on the hunt for this sign!  It's the perfect self affirming home decor piece!  
So before I get into all things beauty, I have to take a moment to shout out The Preserved Restaurant for providing us with a delicious meal for brunch!  I mean..do you see this glorious dish of Shrimp and Grits!?!  It was almost to perfect to eat...almost!  It definitely tasted as good as it looked!   
We also enjoyed a breakfast quiche, yogurt and fresh fruit, salad, and champagne of course! Chef Brian Whittington definitely knows what he's doing over there at The Preserved Restaurant!  Honestly, when I found out brunch was being catered by them, I knew it was going to be BOMB!

The Bardot also has Old City Brew cold brew coffee on tap!!!  On tap, folks!  

I don't know if this is a normal thing, but I was so enamored by the fact that there's coffee on tap that getting one has been added to my list of "Things I Need to Have in My Life Right Now"!  Beer on tap, yes, wine on tap, sure, but cold brew coffee...unheard of!  Okay maybe I'm exaggerating a little but I FREGGIN' LOVE it!  Soooo Universe, it's so cute and I want one for my classroom!  I'd be the Teacher of the Year for that reason alone!

Now let's talk beauty, shall we?!?!
THE BARDOT BEAUTY LOUNGE
What's black and white, and hot pink all over?  The Bardot Beauty Lounge!  The decor is very chic and screams GIRL POWER!  I especially love the color scheme of the pedicure area!  The black and white cattle print is the perfect touch!  

This lounging area is beautiful and gives off vintage vibes!  I'm telling you, I was getting inspiration, left and right, for my own home.  I love the mauve tones and white and gold accents!  When speaking to the owner, Britnye Shore, she said the sofa is indeed vintage and you can look at it and see that it is in pristine condition!
I'm a total sucker for branding and packaging, so to see all of these gorgeous Smith and Cult nail lacquers, with the hot pink and black packaging, through out the lounge, added to the overall BAD-AZZNESS of The Bardot!  
Seriously!  What's not to love about these bottles of polish!
You're also going to find make-up, jewelry, and all sorts of beauty products through out the lounge for purchase.  I think that makes for the perfect decor accents!  Wouldn't you say?
Speaking of accents, the next time I go back to The Bardot, I'm 100% going to purchase one of these turban shower caps.  In true "Girly-Girl" fashion, you have to be chic at all times, even when in the shower!  I think it would be perfect for when you're traveling or even to walk around in the house with!  It sure beats the heck out of those rachity old plastic shower caps!  So chic! So cute!  So me!

THE BARDOT SERVICES
As I mentioned before, The Bardot Beauty Lounge is a one stop shop!  Offering waxing, lashes, makeup, haircare, cuts, color, and nails, they provide everything you need to get glammed up.  During our morning at the Bardot, we got to experience their services!    
I was excited to get The Bardot Makeover because it included airbrush, which I've never had before, and lashes.  
The air on my face from the airbrush application was very relaxing! I couldn't believe how quickly Devan, my make-up artist, was able to cover my entire face with foundation.  I can see how this would be the best technique to use for a wedding party.
