I'm inviting you all to my birthday party next week Friday!
It's my actual birth date!
It will be held at the unique Brooklyn gem:
This unique bar/lounge is a great space for us to enjoy each other's company.
Excellent, creative drinks & delectable finger foods are waiting to be had!
There will be many drinks at the ready for us all!
I've tried these two:
The Dead Man's Mask (L)
was intriguingly stiff with a hint of sweetness--
the whiskey was the ace in the hole here!
the taller drink
*so good, I forgot it's name*
but I do remember that the owner created it for me!
It was a Piña Colada without the cream
Sweet, light & with a punch--
the intense coconut rum was the secret weapon!
Instantly one of my favorites!
You can try all of these and more next Friday!
See you there!
I'm looking forward to seeing you all!!!
I hate to say this but
Summer's almost over!
So I'm combining the last of my Summer pieces with my new Fall pieces!
This off-the-shoulder dress was a cute purchase
for those days when I wanna look chic but not tight.
And yesterday was one of those days!
My fun, flat n fringed sandals are by JustFab!
They are the perfect shoe to give any outfit a lift
without too much of a lift!
See what I did there?! Lol
And this cute backpack is making it's debut!
It's my new favorite thing from JustFab!
Genuine Leather & the most convenient price!
I swooned the moment it popped into my VIP closet on JustFab.com
I accented my bag with this Karl Lagerfeld pin!
As the season goes on,
I'll be doing more customization to my bag!
Keep up with it on my SnapChat (thequeenesmari)
Stay Fab! Just Fab!
Hello My Royal Family!
Here's something new for you!
Yes, it's small.. mainly black with standard wood cabinetry..
But I accented it with Red!
When I moved here years ago, my Mom gifted me the red microwave.
(It's her favorite color)
So, I went with it!
Adding my red toaster over & red fruit bowl
(not pictured here)
My red raised print dinnerware was also gifted to me!
Table Mats: Ikea
Silverware: Home Accessories on McDonald Ave in Brooklyn
(I'm going to tell you more about them as you continue to read)
Take a look at my fridge:
I have several fridge magnets!
Each of them are meaningful!
Sticky9.com helped me create magnetic photos from a trip my beau & I took to Jamaica
and you see those butterflies?
I'll tell you more about their significance in another post.
But the main attraction is the beautiful, masterfully made, custom centerpiece.
It's from Home Accessories with Tita Srour & her talented staff.
I brought her a vase and they filled it with a beautiful arrangement to match my home!
I love it so much!
I hope you do too!
Thanks for visiting!
See you soon!
I'm gunna try something out for the first time with you all!
As you all know, I LOVE SUNGLASSES!
I have so many!
I figured, it would be nice to share some of them with you!
I have put them up for sale with brief descriptions on my DEPOP.
It's an app almost like eBay but a little easier to maneuver.
They r definitely priced to sell!
First come, first serve!
Depending on how well these go,
I'll be back to sell more things like clothes & shoes!
Happy Shopping My Royal Family!
Hello My Royal Family!
I'm here to share a slight obsession..
I LOVE JOURNALS!
Pink, White & Gold ones to be exact!
Last August I had so many thoughts and emotions running through my head--
I sat quietly one day and
glimpsed this one gold journal I had..
And grabbed one of my gold pens.
(Yes, Gold is my color)
That was the first time I journaled.
I sat there for about 2 hours pouring my heart onto paper!
A few times, I had to stop because
I couldn't see through my tears.
But I got it all out!
I breathed a sigh of relief when I was done!
I actually felt better!
(L) white leather with gold stripes - WRITE;
(C) pink feathers and gold lettering -
ALWAYS BELIEVE THAT SOMETHING WONDERFUL IS GOING TO HAPPEN;
(R) gold leather - STAY GOLDEN
(L) gray white marble with baby pink and gold arrows;
(C) pink leather - IMAGINE
(R) gold leather with pink edges (This was first journal)
(L) white leather with gold lettering - DREAM
(C) pink leather with gold & white lettering - MY DAILY PRAYER JOURNAL
(R) pink hard cover with gold edges - (my favorite scripture) JEREMIAH 29:11
My mom bought this one for me and wrote the most beautiful note for me in there!
I'll cherish it forever!
If you don't already,
I urge you:
Pick up a journal, Go to a quiet place, and
Write it all down!
I can promise you, you will feel soooo much better!
In a happy place,
P.S.- Journals make a GREAT gift! ;P
