The Royal Bazaar!
Good Day, Royals!
Today, I hosted my first Regalia Lifestyle event:
The Royal Bazaar!
Months ago, I found myself with closetsss full and a storage unit filled with goodies!
Clothes that had never been worn,
Shoes that maybe went from the car to a building and back one night
Jewelry I purchased thinking I had to have but no outfit to pair it with...
I decided to have a sale!
I began to plan...
I know there are many more people just like me
with clothes they never wore or items they donned for just a few hours.
The date was set, people were invited and we were ready!
The Bazaar was also opened for sales from entrepreneurs like
wholesale representatives to snack curators!
Sweep thru this gallery to c all the wonderful things this event had to offer.
The day was a huge success!!!
Thanks to everyone who was a part!
Special mention to
Susan, Chris, Nicole, Nick, Auntie Pearlette, Leighton,
Ornesta, Trevor G., Brandon, Oneil, Christian,
Talitha and Seona
And of course, My Parents!
Weekend in Houston
I was recently afforded the opportunity to join my bro @BobbyTrendz
in Houston, Texas.
Bobby Trendz & TrendzPad have created a symposium for men
(and the women who love them) called
A Gentlemen's Guide.
-Search #AGentlemensGuideHouston on Instagram-
The Houston edition was equipped with gentlemen
who were passionate about sharing their style stories & encouraging attendees to find theirs.
The underlying theme of the event became searching one's self
& exuding personal style.
And of course with Bobby, there would be some fun times! Look thru these pics!
Y'all know I love a Sky pic!!!
Houston! I'm willing to love you
if you keep being good to me.
I felt at home...
I'll see you very soon.
The Mood Setter
We all need moments of relaxation:
A time to be calm & release feelings of nervous tension & stress.
Find the time........
Better yet-- Make time to rejuvenate yourself!
For me, it's the flicker & scent of a candle,
aesthetic of plush flowers and a moment of tranquility.
Try it, Royals!
Home Goods! ... Again!
A moment of honesty:
if I ever tell you that I'm going to Home Goods 'real quick'--
Don't believe me!
Between designing the home of my dreams and
Styling my current humble abode,
I can easily spend hours in Home Goods.
I like to start in the Specialty foods area.
Sometimes they have cool snacks and chips worth the try!
I browse the Kitchen/Dining area for international finds and
little things I never knew I needed until I saw it! ;)
As with anything else in the store, they're one of a kind!
Then I make my way over to the bathroom accessory area &
I usually grab about 3 bars of soap.
(Yes, I use soap bars! I'm not into shower gels)
All that was appetizer!
The entree: Home Accents!
Throw Pillows- I like to switch mine out every couple of seasons
Shelf Art- sculptures & vases always catch my eye
and drumroll, please: Candles!
I'm in another world when I park my cart,
grab those unique bottles and whiff away!
I used to be an 'almond' or 'vanilla' girl
but now! There are no rules!
This Patchouli?!!! by Makers of Wax Goods!
It's perfectly soft, a little wood-sy with a little spice
I cannot wait to light it and have it fill
my mini apartment palace with it's greatness!
When I'm all done with candles,
I'll walk through the wall art section.
Just to see if there's any silver, gold, Parisian-style art.
Depending on my project.
(I'm currently on the hunt for a couple 11" canvases)
Now on to bedding!
Who says you have to wait until you get to a hotel to love the feel of the bed?!
To add to the comfort of my bed,
I grabbed a new mattress pad and 2 more pillows.
I really like white bedding right now, so
I picked up a couple more sheet sets!
Chairs! I need chairs!
Such cute chairs!
When I have my large palace,
I hope some of these chairs are still here.
I'll be coming back for them!
But right now, none are quite suitable for the current space I need to fill.
Am I talking too much?!
How else can I sum up a couple hours in a quick post??
You know what?
Next time... Come with me!
I'm on SnapChat!
Embrace the Sun
Today was so sunny! So summery! So good!
I got a chance to wear my new kimono!
On a recent shopping excursion in one of my favorite stores,
I went with one specific item in mind:
a long turquoise sun dress.
While browsing the store,
I got an idea!
I need a kimono!
I pictured myself dolled up hosting a dinner party at my dining table: set for 16.
(No one else dreams in Royalty? Lol)
A walk to the ever inviting sales rack...
A Kimono! The only one!
Thank you fashion gods for my lucky find!
I wanted it to stand out, so I went with a
Basic white tank from H&M, and a
White pencil skirt from Forever 21.
Enjoy the Summer, Royals!!!
