Bridal Style Tip:  You are a bride with tattoos but you don’t necessarily want them to be visible on your wedding day.  







*Disclaimer*  I AM NOT AN MUA But I have worked with some great talent & only refer the best that are a good fit in personality.  It’s important to mesh well with even your style/glam team BECAUSE those are the ones that will see you for the last time & give you your finishing touches before your grand entrance to your wedding!  








Back on track::  If you do have tattoos and you don’t want them to be visible in your wedding dress, I love products like #Dermablend for a flawless look.  However WHEN you hire a professional MUA they will provide their top selections for tattoo coverage as well.  Please be aware that additonal tattoo coverage maybe an additional fee for your #weddingstyle budget.

It is finished!  My Personal Stylist Emergency kit.  I want something that complemented my style & also company brand.  I had been using my wedding e-kit for personal style + weddings + editorial shoots  which was cumbersome.  “Work smarter not harder” this allows me to take this bag to in-home consults & on site for photoshoots with ease.  It represents me & also ties into my company brand!





This bag contains:  1 bag for beauty, 1 bag for medical/personal, 1 bag for shoot essentials, wristlet for safety & hair pins for quick access on photo shoots, necessary lint roller, slippers, wardrobe clips & a personal steamer for quick jobs.   
 This bag is so me & I adore it!!

#Tailored Thursday :: Grooms Style…A dinner jacket is classic & always looks dapper. 



Incorporate pops of color with fabric floral lapel pins for an added pop of color that will complement the wedding color palette.  Lapel pins can be carried over for men’s style after the wedding to a favorite jacket or blazer!  




It’s sort of like having the bridesmaid dress you can wear after the wedding!!!  Sound familiar ladies??  Pick pieces that your bridal party can achieve multiple looks because in most cases they are paying for it & who doesn’t like to have multiple uses for special occasion style pieces!

#StyleTip Tuesday ::  Utilitarian/Utility jackets don’t always have to be dressed down when styling them.  When paired correctly they can also serve as a polished look in a business casual office setting or if you’re an entrepreneur this is a perfect look for afternoon client meetings and consultations.  


For today’s #OOTD or #LOTD I’ve paired a simply army green utility jacket with a pair of white cropped pants for a more polished look.  To contrast the army green color, pairing it with a orange and white gingham print blouse will give it a pop of color.  


For accessories I stayed with gold, brown & metallic colors for additional details.  Do you have a army or utility jacket in your current wardrobe if so how do you current rock it?

"Unshakeable calm, confidence & a fierce grace."  Grace has been a key word for me & my journey the past few weeks….

I’ve been blessed to have Maya Angelou as my mentor, mother/sister, and friend since my 20’s.  She was there for me always, guiding me through some of the most important years of my life.  The world knows her as a poet but at the heart of her, she was a teacher. ‘When you learn, teach.  When you get, give’ is one of my best lessons from her.
She won three Grammys, spoke six languages and was the second poet in history to recite a poem at a presidential inauguration.  But what stands out to me most about Maya Angelou is not what she has done or written or spoken, it’s how she lived her life.  She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence and a fierce grace.  I loved her and I know she loved me.  I will profoundly miss her.  She will always be the rainbow in my clouds.
