Oprah's Life You Want Notes +Takeaways

Oprah and her posse took over Atlanta (aka Olanta) last weekend for the Life You Want Weekend.  I’m still all in my feeling after attending Oprah’s Life You Want Weekend.  I just want to hug everybody, well not everybody but you know the feeling.   With work and mommy duties, I wasn't able to attend the kickoff events that Friday.  I got my butt up super early Saturday morning to make my way to hang with Oprah for the day.   I’m not going to go into crazy details about the event other than it was AMAZING.  But I do want to share my some of my “Aha!”  moments with you.

Boho Baby

I hope you guys enjoyed your weekend.  Didn't it fly by?  They always do!  I did get to see my one of my favorite hip hop artist of all time (and the finest), Nas at One Music fest.  I may getting too old for the festivals but I'll do anything for a glimpse of Nas!  Any who... *fans self* I was inspired by festival fashions, so Peyton rocked her wool wide brim fedora hat this weekend.

Mamanista Fridays: Animal Prints

Happy Mamanista Fridays!  I've decided I need to get a clone.  This week flew by and I had tons of stuff to do but only managed to get to about 20% of it.  I guess it happens to the best of us.  This post almost didn't happen either but I got my self together.  This weeks Mamanista Friday, Mama Fashion Files and I are wearing animal prints.  I'm so glad animal print is still going strong.

Low-Cal Oreo Milkshake #SweetNLowStars

I made my Sweet’N Low milkshake as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #SweetNLowStars. Thoughts and opinions are my own.

I know summer is just about over (Yay fall!), but I love my milkshakes all year long. I’m not a big plain ice cream in a bowl eater but hand me a milkshake and watch me go HAM! Milkshakes at restaurants don’t have my best interests or waistline at heart. I was challenged with the task of making my own low-cal milkshake that will satisfy cravings and save my closet at the same time. Using Sweet’N Low, I created the guilt free Oreo milkshake!

Twinkle Toes + Cabbage Patches

It's hard to believe that Peyton started school almost a month ago!  I still feel like I'm scrambling making sure she has everything she needs.  Peyton is also taking Spanish and dance classes so the lists of items she needs keep coming!  I'm also still tightening up her fall wardrobe.  Since the weather in Atlanta is still scorching, Peyton has been expressing her back to school style through her shoes.  Her gold Twinkle Toes by Skechers are all the rave in her pre-K class.

September Issue Fashion Inspiration

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, InStyle, Vogue and Elle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #inspirefallfashion

September is the month of fashion finals.  New York Fashion Week is going on and the September mags hit the stands.  In late July, I start to fiend for the September issues.  September issues provide so much inspiration for the upcoming fall and winter season.  If I miss the September issues, I won't be ready for fall.  After studying my September issues of InStyle, Vogue and Elle Magazine, I was inspired to put together this fall look.

Mamanista Fridays: Booties

I always rush season changes, especially fall because it's my fave!  I'm so ready for fall I don't know what to do! I almost feel like staying in the house until it's 60 degrees out.  I'm tired of my wearing tank tops and painting my to nails.  I just want to wear boots and cute jackets.  Mama Fashion Files and I thought it would be great to incorporate some transitional pieces for Mamanista Fridays.  We pulled out our booties, a fall must have!
