Outfit Post // 5 ways to deal with a break up + Pink Bomber

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.  Today is the day I get to see my sweet mama and my sister in Las Vegas.  The past couple of weeks have been hard.  Just to fill you in my boyfriend and I broke up. I don't often share personal things on the blog.  I don't know if it's because I want yall to come to me for fashion advice or because somethings are just better not talked about.  I feel a change happening on the blog platform where people want to know more personal things and how to cop with them. So I am sharing my 5 things to help with a break up.

1. Have a peaceful break up : there is nothing worse than a mean and angry break up.  You say things you didn't mean and hurt one another for no reason.  Be sweet and who knows what can happen when you are in a better state of mind.

2. Keep yourself busy :  I have been traveling, went to a conference, working a lot, and reconnecting with friends.  I made a big effort when I was in my relationship to keep my friends close.  I wanted them to be apart of our relationship, plus if something bad happens aren't left alone and with no friends.

3. Take back your schedule :  when you are working around 2 peoples schedule some of your favorite things you did single go to the waste side.  So start watching your favorite tv show again, hit up that cool gym with cute boys, go shopping more often, have happy hour drinks with an old friend.  So much to do to keep you busy and bring some of the things you love to do back into your life.

4. Go to church :  this really should be number 1.  Find a new fun church.  Not that you are going there to meet boys, you are going there to meet new friends.  You have to put yourself out there in a good place to have love and friendship find you.  Plus God is in control of all so if its on your heart, just know He is calling you there. So grab and friend and head to visit Jesus.

5. Put yourself out there : this is most important.  You cant quit.  You have to put yourself out there for others to meet girls and boys.  You never know who can set you up or introduce you to someone special.  I used to take a dating detox, wrong.  You cant stay home and morn the lost of someone. Chances are they aren't home morning either.  So get dressed up do your hair and makeup and meet up with friends and family.   If you don't put yourself out there you will always be alone.

So with that being said, here is a fun little date night outfit inspiration for you.  The bomber is a big trend right now.  its a great layering look and adds some edge and style to your look.  I also and still loving velvet and these shoes from holiday are the perfect shoe for a first date.  Its fun and flirty, well heck and I am thirty.

Outfit Post // Say Yes to Stripes

Hello everyone, we made it to Wednesday.  I am not having that great of a week so I hope all of you out there are.  The transmission in my car died the other day.  It's a very sad day when you have to shell out 4k on a car you just bought 7 months ago.  So moral of that story people is SAVE!!!

Outfit Post // Olive Quilted

Well ground hog day told us nothing in the south.  This crazy weather keeps going up then down up then down.  That't why I love this olive quilted cardigan.  It's light weight and cozy for when there is a chill in the air.  Also You can wear it as a athleisure look or with dark denim.  Either way it looks great with a cozy fabric and a touch of structure. 

Lets get into more important things like the Superbowl and the half time show.  It was a sad night for the people of Atlanta.  The Falcons showed up to win and just let it slip right through their gloves.  I guess you can never underestimate Tom Brady.  But on the bright and high side Lady Gaga did an amazing job with her solo half time performance.  She lifted spirits and showed america what it looks and sounds like to really sing on stage.  Way to go Gaga. 

This week my good friend Analeise and I are headed to Sea Island, Ga for The Southern Coterie.  Its a conference for bloggers, entrepreneurs, and small business owners.  We are very excited to mingle, learn, and bring new ideas to Reeves & Company and Sell Eat Love. So make sure you fallow along on social media outlets like snapchat and instagram.
