Where In The World Does Iced Tea and Top Knots Want To Go: Paris

To kick off being back to posting on a regular basis, I am launching a new series, “Where In The World Does Iced Tea and Top Knots Want To Go.” For the first one, I am covering Paris, France! Ever since I was little I have always wanted to go to Paris and anytime I saw Paris on TV or in a movie it heightened my dream to go to Paris. 

What really just confirmed my love of Paris was the movie ‘Midnight in Paris.’ Truly fell in love all over again with Paris and more. I have my outfits planned for each occasion and historical spot I want to visit as well as my coffee spots where I will have a tea latte and French macaroon. I can’t wait to go and that is one of my goals for 2020, go to Paris and soak up as much as I can. Here’s to the trip of my dreams. I have listed some of my favorites I have that I want to go to. See below and let me know what your favorites have been when visiting Paris.

Tribute to Givenchy

“The dress must follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress.” ~Hubert de Givenchy

IMG-0640

A true legend and fashion icon has just passed away, Hubert de Givenchy. From his bags to his perfume & cologne, clothes and shoes, he is a man forever inspiring in the world of fashion and beyond. He has also made an impact on my life. Fashion has always been for me about self expression, art, who I am, what I love and am truly passionate about. So for me designers are who I really look up to on a regular basis. When I heard of Mr.Givenchy’s passing it hit my heart. He was and still is someone that has always and will always inspire me. From the beautiful iconic Givenchy bags to the magnicificent clothing, I am continuously obsessed and inspired by the beautiful brand. Mark my words, these inspirational pieces by a truly inspiring man will be in my closet.

We lost an icon, my heart breaks. All I can say is my love out to his family, friends and fans. Thank you for all you have given us and will continue giving us. Love You Givenchy!

P.S. What is your all time favorite Givenchy piece or moment ? Mine is when he dressed his friend and fellow icon, Audrey Hepburn.

Keeping My Hair & Body Feeling Amazing with L’BRI PURE n’ NATURAL

“Fall in love with taking care of yourself. Mind. Body. Spirit.”

I have now been using all of L’BRI PURE n’ NATURAL’s amazing products for a month. They are still fantastic, my skin has been looking and feeling great.

So not only have their amazing aloe based skincare products changed my skin for the better, but so have their hair and body products.

My hair feels superb and healthy, yay! I have L’BRI’s Aloe Nourishing Shampoo and Conditioner to thank ! Let me tell you I don’t usually play with my hair, but I will be the first to admit that I play with it all the time now. The reason for it is I am just so excited for how my hair has been feeling. I am not ashamed of my casual hair flipping, I own it 🙂

Not only is my hair having a party, but my whole body has never felt better because of L’BRI PURE n’ NATURAL’s Cucumber Body Wash, Cucumber Hand and Body Lotion and Intense Body Butter. You can imagine how excited my sensitive skin is that these products work. My skin feels healthy, happy and hydrated !

L’BRI’s products allow me to not worry about whether the products will make me break out in hives, which is a huge win for me. A lot of why all of L’BRI’s products work is because they are aloe based and completely natural. I am having a constant dance party because of it and my smile gets bigger and bigger each day !

Again saying I am hooked on L’BRI PURE n’ NATURAL is an understatement. I have fallen in love with all of their products. I love how natural, soothing and hydrating every product is. I know longer have to stress about my skincare and bodycare products making my skin freak out, which is invaluable. L’BRI PURE n’ NATURAL is a must try and I promise you won’t regret it. I am a L’BRI groupie for life !

P.S. If you had to pick one product to take on an island, what would it be?

Mine would be my L’BRI SPF lotion or L’BRI Intense Body Butter (depends on the weather &/or mood).

Dream A Little Dream Tonight

“Inspiration is finding something that excites you.” ~Connie Smith

These stairs in Silverlake got me thinking about what I am passionate about. My two passions in life I can’t do without are sports and fashion. It seems more and more that these 2 loves of mine are colliding, which is so exciting. What has allowed these two worlds to collide are my lifestyle blog and pr career.

IMG_1885

My passion for both grows everyday. My blog allows me to embrace both loves and not having to choose between the two is such a joy and dream.

Each day I love finding ways to continuously have sports and fashion in my professional life and personal life. I am sure after I shot on the rainbow stairs, I went home changed into my sports gear and watched some baseball and/or golf. Even as I type up this post, I am watching my Chicago Cubs take on the Cincinnati Reds.

Something I still struggle with is trying to fullfill both sides of me (fashion girl & sports fanatic), but the more I focus on my blogging and honing in on my pr career it seems my two passions come together.

IMG_6601

Being at the rainbow stairs and some moments since then, I have realized that I don’t have to choose between the two. For y’all too, if you have multiple passions in life, don’t get discouraged about feeling like you have to choose. You can find ways to pursue them both or even mold them together.

Each day, I am so grateful that everyone around me is so supportive, allow me to be me and pursue what I love. Don’t let others get in your way of what you are passionate about , where there is a will there is a way.

I love fashion and I love all things sports. They will both always be a part of all aspects in my life. I am so grateful and excited about where they both will take me!

P.S. What are your loves & passions in life ?

Another note, I find that when trying to focus on my passions listening to my favorites helps me to not lose track of what I love.
