Firmoo Glasses

Spring is finally here!  Not only is spring my favorite season because of the gorgeous weather, it also allows me to rock my favorite florals.  The only downside of Spring here in Virginia is the insane amount of pollen floating around.  As much as I love being outdoors this time of year, my allergies do not.  Because my allergies have prevented me from wearing my contacts, I’ve been forced to wear glasses every day.  Thankfully, I was able to score a pair of these super cute and affordable Firmoo glasses.  Not only do they help me out this time of year when I can’t wear my contacts, they are the perfect accessory to every outfit.  Visit their website here to snag a pair for yourself!

Winter Re-cap


It’s hard to believe, but I survived another cold winter in the RVA.  To keep warm, I mainly wore tights or skinny jeans with long sleeve thermos t-shirts and lots of riding boots or sneakers.  On a few occasions I did layer up with my favorite black Friday finds (plaid blazers) from Tarjay aka Target and snapped some worth sharing outfit pictures.   

Most fashion bloggers are knee deep into Spring wear, but here I am just trying to catch up.  The third outfit is the perfect all year long LBD.  I found this little gem on the Loft clearance rack while helping a friend find a dress during our lunch break.   The dress didn’t have a price tag but when I took it up to the register it rang up for $5.00  YES! $5.00 is less than a lunch meal!  At that price I didn’t even bother to try it on since I figured I had nothing to lose.  Luckily for me, it fit me just right and it paired perfectly with my faux fur vest.

Also, here’s little update on my training.  I started my “hard-core” diet mid-February right after my birthday.  I then began my gym training the first of March.  I can definitely see and feel changes in my body, especially in my clothes. I adopted a fitness lifestyle about 18 months ago and I have made quite a bit of progress.  Now with my new diet, the changes are more evident than ever.  I would like to share my progress with you all and hope no one gets offended.  This has become a huge part of my life and I intend to keep it up and hopefully inspire and help anyone who wants to make a change and just needs that little push or motivation.

It’s been way too long…


I hope everyone had a great Holiday season and a fantastic New Year.  As expected, mine was busy with family visiting from out of town.  Thankfully I had great help from my wonderful mother in law.  Unfortunately my mom and younger sister didn’t come up from Miami this year because my grandmother is simply too old and fragile, but luckily we’ll be seeing them in a few weeks for my cousin’s wedding back home.  I’ve started this year with great excitement and high expectations since I decided to pursue my passion in fitness and train to compete in a bikini bodybuilding show in mid-summer or beginning of fall.  This will definitely take up most if any of my free time, but in between my legging days and messy hair I will still dress up and snap pictures of my bargain outfits worthy of sharing with you all.    Until next time, here are some of last month’s outfits before the crazy cold hit the RVA.
