No wigs, weaves or extentions this week.Β 

Hair highlights didn’t take to my hair well. So hair stylist cut me short. It’s hot in New Orleans, so I am really thinking of wearing my short natural hair more often. Here are some styles I am thinking of. These are cute as well.

Plus Size Day – Night Summer Style

You’re at the mark for Summer and looking for cute items. For plus size women, going into a cute boutique or nice, fashionable store is really dreadful. The clothes are ugly and you looking as if you are ready for a funeral. Hopefully, it will not be yours, lol! Ok! Saks Fifth Avenue, has some cute pieces online that are my favorites: 

ABS PLUS SIZE- Off the Shoulder Dress
ABS PLUS SIZE, Trapeze Haulter Dress

You can do nothing wrong with these pieces. One is for day, the other for night and depending where your going, during the day, switch them!

Working outΒ 

Ok! Here we go! I decided to go back to my old stomping ground. I was not very active and due to a work injury, I was in a bad place. To help combat that, I began drinking Apple Cider Vinegar and Water. Nothing else, but those two to manage my cravings and burn some of this belly fat. Yes Dolls, your main Doll has a lot of belly fat. Last year, I lost 25lbs on the Apple Cider Vinegar & Water regime. 

So far, I have lost about 6lbs. I messed up last night by eating macaroni and cheese from KFC. I will make it up though πŸ˜‡πŸ‘ˆπŸ½πŸ˜Ž The main thing is to drink lots of water and eat healthy! Here’s to 25lbs lighterπŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½

Ps, GUCCI SALE

Yes! I forgot! Gucci has a sale happening now. Unfortunately, when ever I go into the Gucci store in New Orleans, I am underwhelmed but the lack of applealing items they have one sale. Which is why all of my Gucci items are preloved! I rather go to Chanel or Louis Vuitton and shop, because I know I will find something delicious for my luxury appetite. 

Don’t go broke on makeup hauls

Ok! Easier said than done. However, I am beginning to notice that with a lot of these instagram and social media makeup lines, restocks and reselling of the restock is a big money grab. These young woman and gays are spending their hard earned or (less be honest) borrowed $$ and blowing it on makeup just to become a collector.

My makeup collection is small compared to come people in my facebook makeup groups. I am learning to be fashionably frugal, as of late. I have to build my investment portfolio, so blowing my salary on makeup isn’t safe or responsible. Ladies & gays, be careful. All makeup has an expiration zone! Don’t go broke on Kylielipkits, Jeffreestar, MAC or my fav: Chanel/DiorπŸ’πŸ’žπŸ’‹πŸ’‹

Clutch Pearls Dolls, Waiting for the next Chanel handbag increase πŸ˜΅

Yes, I know! You were not ready and neither was I. Having purchased preloved and fresh from the boutique, my eyes were not ready to read an increase was coming up. My last purchase was the Casino Clutch and Navy wallet. I also, have a preloved item coming soon. What’s a Doll to do? According to Luxury Handbag site Luxury Daily/Baghunter, the increase is imminent. It is not a matter of if but, when the tentative increase will happen. 

Dolls, are you ready? I, for one, am not! What’s going to happen is consignment shops will juice up their already inflated prices to make a profit off of this future Chanel increase. I will continue to purchase from both preloved and boutique, but I will chose wiselyπŸ‘ˆπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½

What I love about my Louis Vuitton bag

Dolls, 

I stopped a random woman, and asked her what does she love about her Louis Vuitton. Many women carry Louis Vuitton bags now more than ever. What is the appeal? Well, for me it shows hard work, fashion, comfort; most of all, value. Value of the money you spent. I remember being fresh out of high school and college, carrying a Nine West handbag. What I hated most about my Nine West bag was the threads would come undone easily. I hated the fact, I spent so much money -at the time- on a hand bag for it to unravel, so quickly! 
We carry what we value, more importantly, we value what we carry! 

Carrying a Louis Vuitton Trivoli: “After five years, she still holds her own. She’s a good bag to have.”
