Dia&Co (January) Styling and Try On!

Hello All My Darling Divas,

Welcome back to another day on the blog! This week is all about Dia & Co! Yesterday we talked all about my first Dia & Co unboxing! You can check that blogpost here. Today’s blogpost will be all about trying on those fabulous items, and how I would style them! You also find out if I decided to keep anything this month, or if I’m sending it all back! So lets get into the video!

Did you enjoy? I really hope so. I am so excited for these unboxings, and I already can’t wait until next month! So lets get into the rundown of each item and see what’s staying and going.

Taylor V-Neck Long Sleeve Dress in Blue
Size:18 Wide
Keeping?: No 
Here is a simple collage of how I would style this dress. Strappy heels and bold jewelry is the best for this dress! I think gold and black will make this dress look perfect, but feel free to experiment with different colors and prints! This dress you can definitely have fun with! 
Modamix Feather Vest in Gray
Size: 2X
Keeping?: No

 You can do so much with a vest like this! You can dress it up, or dress it down! I would def dress this down with a simple basic tee and jeans, and some over the knee boots for a pop of sexy! I would let this bold piece stand out on its own and keep everything I style with it simple!
Modamix Faux Leather Yoke Dress in Black
Size: 2X
Keeping?: No
For this simple LBD( Little black Dress) I would see myself wearing this to work. I would pair it with a blazer and some really cute pumps. You can either pair it up with a single colored blazer, or show some personality with a printed one. This would def work in the workplace! 
Sapphire Necklace in Gold & Blue and Gold Accent Clutch
 Keeping?: No

Thease pieces and add a pop to any outfit. The clutch can be used as a perfect accesory for a night out on the town, and the saphire necklace can add some fab to a simple t-shirt!

I unfortunately wasn’t able to find any of the items online! I would say if anything copy and paste it into google, or use it to find a similar pieces at a different stores!

So ladies that’s it for the Dia & Co styling and try on! I hope you have enjoyed it because I know I did! Be sure to check out Dia & Co! You can click here to visit the website!

Hello All My Darling Divas!

Welcome back to another ther day on the blog! Yesterday we talked about the reboot of The Curve Maintenance series.

If you want to check out yesterday’s blogpsost which pretty much explains the story behind why it fell off then click here!

That is what we will be doing in today’s blogpost! Today you will learn all about my weight loss journey from the very beginning, and what I have been doing in the last couple of months to maintain my curves!

You never know how your story will motivate others! I discussed in this video that I am currently using the Center For Medical Weight Loss or CMWL so far in my weight loss. You can click here to find a center near you, and find out more information about the program on the site. I was going to list the center that I currently go to, but I went to my CMWL meeting yesterday, and my doctor told me he is retiring! I am sooo upset about that! So now I have to figure out if I want to continue on CMWL, or go about doing things on my own again.  I will give you an update on that later on that!

So darling divas revamp your lifestyle changes! Try a new food, a new workout, or call in some outside help if need be! Whatever you do be comfortable in what you do, and do it for you! Make goals and make a plan and get it done!

So this simple video will just give you the details for this fabulous curly do. So enjoy the video, and meet me below for more details.

Did you enjoy the video? I hope so! My obsession with crochet braids started in 2015, but it will continue in 2016 and years to come! Its such an affordable style that I just cant get enough of! So lets get into the details for this particular style!

 This is the type of hair that I used. The silky dread was installed, and then unraveled to reveal the curls. I used three packs of this color blend, and then one pack of just black. Click here to buy this exact hair online.  I purchased mine from Beauty & Beauty Beauty Supply store in Union, NJ if you live in the area. Feel free to use this picture as a reference when you go into your local BSS.
