LIFE & STYLE // Rainy Sabbath in Lace

This weekend was another lovely one spent in the DMV.  This time for my bestie’s wedding!!!  But more on that later this week ūüôā

Sabbath was absolutely lovely.  Weather kinda sucked as it rained all day but it was also very relaxing and calming as a result of that as well.  I was able to finally visit RPC SDA at their new building and it was an amazing worship service.  I was truly blessed.  I pray that God continues to bless their ministry exceedingly and abundantly.

Oh yeah? What’d I wear….



Hat – Stolen from @colorbystyle / Light pink lace dress – Zara / Belt – Zara / Cognac pumps – Target (can you tell these are my faves? Lol)

It was definitely a great Sabbath spent with great friends in preparation for a great WEDDING!  More on that on Friday ūüôā

Love and God Bless,

It was a really nice warm day in the city so yes, legs were shown…and I had a little too much fun playing with the filters on my phone…lol

Out & About + Dressed To A T // Love Me Like XO

Usually when my family and I head to New York to visit family, it’s really lowkey and chill. ¬†We don’t usually go out anywhere….ever lol. ¬†But my brother (Jamal) and sister (Tanya) decided that they were tired of not making moves every time we came and pretty much told us that we were going to go to Coney Island, and that was the end of that discussion. ¬†It ended up being a lot of fun!!! ¬†I didn’t realize until we got there that things looked familiar…..and this is probably why…. ūüôā

Yeah…didn’t realize it until my sister pointed it out lol. ¬†I actually don’t remember ever going to Coney Island ever…but according to my dad when I was much younger we took a trip there. ¬†Totally doesn’t count lol.

Dressed To A T // Make Me Blush

My absolute favorite thing about the summer is the time that I get to spend with my family. ¬†Second to that is getting to wear cute light summer clothing. ¬†That’s probably one of the many things that frustrate me about winter….layering and having to wear soooo much clothing. ¬†One day I’ll figure it out *shrug*.

My family came to visit me this weekend and I am soooo glad they did. ¬†We always have so much fun and end up having jokes for days (amidst all the bickering…lol). ¬†We went to visit my godmommy’s church (Hi Auntie Kim!) and I sang there as well. ¬†Then we went to visit some more family and had a delicious¬†lunch. ¬†Aaaannnd…I decided to beg my brother to do a blog shoot in the middle of the street. LOL.

POP UP POST // Out & About + Dressed To A T – Main Street Bethlehem Brunch

By far, one of my favorite things about this time of year is Sunday Brunching it with great friends. ¬†This past weekend, headed out to Bethlehem with my co-residents to enjoy the weather and have some great food (we LOVE to eat…lol). ¬†The food was great and we enjoyed a nice short trip to Seasons Olive Oil & Vinegar Taproom

image
image

I had never been to a specialty vinegar or olive oil store before but as you can see, the selection was overwhelming! ¬†There were so many different flavors of vinegar (there was a Dark Chocolate infused vinegar that I could just imagine would be HEAVENLY over a fresh fruit salad in the summer) and various olive oils infused with various scents and spices as well! ¬†I have to say, I felt very fancy and grown up in that store for some reason…lol

I did end up purchasing a few things from Seasons….

image

So yeah…I bought this with no intention of cooking with it lol. ¬†I do usually use Olive Oil mixed into my deep conditioner or pre-poo and also on my face, mixed with my Oil of Oregano and Tea Tree Oil (more on that to come soon in my updated skincare regimen). ¬†This Blood Orange infused Olive Oil¬†smelled SO amazing. ¬†I cannot wait until my braids are out and I start deep conditioning again. ¬†I know the aroma is just going to be…everything….

I also bought two amazingly scented soaps that I am just eagerly anticipating to use in the shower. ¬†The Blood Orange scent permeated the packaging and just tickled my nose oh so deeply. ¬†Then there was a Lavender scented soap that was just so…*sigh* I know it’s going to be a perfect stress-reliever in a few months when life gets quite busy once again.

Oh yeah….and here’s what I wore ūüôā

Dressed To A T // Golden Florals for Brunch

I absolutely LOVE Sunday brunch! ¬†And I think I’ve found some new brunch buddies (*waves to Alisha & Eni!!*). ¬†This past weekend we went to Hotel Bethlehem and had brunch/lunch at 1741 on the Terrace. ¬†The food was AMAZEBALLS and the atmosphere was so great…with classical music in the background that made me feel like I was in “My Fair Lady”.

I wore this gorgeous floral balloon skirt that I’ve had for a couple of years (featured on the blog previously HERE) and absolutely LOVE!

Dressed To A T // Feisty in Brooklyn

Ever since I saw Krystal over at The Feisty House wearing this gorgeous kimono style top,¬†I’ve been on the lookout for something similar to add to my collection. ¬†I absolutely LOVE Kimonos and I’m so thrilled that they’re making a serious comeback this Spring/Summer (dare I say even Fall) 2014 season! ¬†Such a light and airy piece that can add the right amount of color and pizzazz to an otherwise plain outfit.

Took these shots while we did some grocery shopping in Brooklyn (and stopped for some ice cream!).  I was so excited to see mangoes AND QUENEP!!!

image

Dude….Do you know how LONG it has been since I had Quenep??? Last time I remember having any was….BEFORE 2001 when my family and I lived in St. Croix. ¬†My life has now been refreshed and renewed by their presence in my life….and on my tastebuds lol.
