A Day In The Life of Brie: December Throwback

Happy Monday Darling Divas!

I know. First I post on a Saturday, and now I’m posting on a Monday??? Once again your calendar isn’t playing tricks on you, I am here on another non-Friday and tonight it’s because it’s A Day In The Life of Brie Week. So for those of you who don’t know A Day In The Life of Brie is my Vlog segment here on NoMinusPlus that I post once a month. I filmed an episode for December and January, but never posted it, so I figure I would post those two episodes and this month’s episode all in one week. Thus A Day In The Life Of Brie Week was born! This episode happened so last year, and it my weekend filled with double New York shenanigans, a Christmas tree, and hot dogs. So enjoy and meet me below for some more info.

I hope you all enjoyed! There isn’t much info to list for this one, so I will just quickly tell you about the NYC spots I visited just in case you want to go there with some friends!

On Friday I went to a bar called McFaddens! It’s a pub type vibe, and they are always giving out free open bar nights, so be sure to sign up because you might win one!

On Saturday I went to the Museum of Illusions. This place is not only great for adults, but also for kids! So if you are looking for something family friendly this place is a great option.

This wraps up the first day of A Day In The Life Of Brie week! Be sure to come back Wednesday and Friday of this week for the remaining two episodes!

My Faux-Fur Jacket Collection

Happy Saturday Darling Divas!

Yes, I know. Posting on a Saturday? No, your mind isn’t playing tricks on you, and yes I know its not our usual day that we meet, but yall this week was one for the books! I still wanted to make sure that I got this video up, so I figured I would post it today instead of yesterday. So now you get a weekend NoMinusPlus treat! Today on the blog we are talking all about my extra AF Faux-Fur jacket collection! I consider myself to be a jacket queen, but I am most proud of the Faux-Fur portion of that collection. So today I am sitting down and chatting all about my faux-fur babies. So shall we begin?

Did you enjoy? I hope so! Do you have any Faux-Fur jackets? Spill the deets and tell me all about them below! As an added bonus I decided to collect all the times I have rocked or styled my jackets so that you can get some outfit inspo on how to rock yours. The only ones I don’t have is for the orange one, but luckily its a pretty casual jacket, so if you have a jacket like this one you can pretty much wear it with anything. I won’t be providing links to the jackets since some are thrifted and some have been sold out for a while, but I will be provided where I got them from so that you know where you snag one if you’re interested!

Lime Green Cropped Jacket- Fashion Nova

This cropped lime jacket is honestly one of the greatest purchases I’ve ever made! I have always wanted a green faux-fur jacket, so this one definitely was a dream come true! Check out the collage below of the looks I created for this outfit. Click here to check out the styling video for this look!

Leopard Print Faux-Fur Jacket: JustFab

So we have already talked about how cheetah print is my favorite color, so of course, you all know I have a cheetah/leopard print faux fur jacket! I love that it’s a longer jacket, and it honestly can go with anything. I actually styled this jacket 4 ways in a 4 Looks, 1 Piece video, so click here to check it out.

Pink Faux Fur Jacket: Romans

This is my favorite faux-fur jacket in my collection because come on. Why wouldn’t it be? It’s seriously the first thing I want to wear every time it gets even a little bit chilly when the seasons change. I love to wear it for special occasions, and I’ve even been known to throw it on to wear to Walmart. (lol) The first two of the looks in this collages are OOTD’s, and the last look is from my Pinking of You VDay lookbook from last year. Click here to check it out! (P.S. I must really love wearing my curly wig with this jacket because I just noticed I’m wearing it in all three looks lol!)

Navy Faux-Fur Jacket: Target

This jacket, in my opinion, is my most wearable jacket. Its color and style makes it perfect to wear with pretty much anything, and is just the perfect amount of extra that we all could use on a daily basis! The second photo is an OOTD and one of my favorite looks from last year, and the first look is from my Loft Lookbook. Click here to check it out!

Orange Faux Fur Jacket: Charlotte Russe

This jacket I, unfortunately, don’t have any pictures of me wearing it, but I know I have worn it, so I am going to have to hunt those photos down! This bomber style jacket is super easy to style though, so you might not need as much inspo. Once I find some more pictures, or take new ones, I will be sure to update this section in the blog post!

Grey-Blue Faux Fur Jacket: Target

When I saw this jacket in Target, in clearance might I add, I knew it had to come home with me. I knew that If I didn’t get it that I would be haunted by that decision for the rest of my days. ( Dramatic yes I know) So I am glad I got it because honestly, it’s so casual and cute. And the color? Incredible! One of my favorite OOTD’s features this jacket and the other look is from I think the first V-Day lookbook I did here on NoMinusPlus. It’s an oldie so if you’re interested in checking it out click here.

Oatmeal Faux-Fur Jacket: Thrifted

The last jacket in my collection is honestly one I need to wear more often because it truly is an amazing piece. It’s so simple and it can seriously go with so much since its a neutral color. I grabbed it from a thrift store and honestly have let it collect dust in the back of my closet, but I will be rocking it more! I styled it for a JustFab unboxing video which you can check out here, and also rocked it as one of my 25th bday outfits.

So that wraps up today’s blog post! I hope you all have enjoyed taking a look at my faux fur jacket collection, and I hope it inspires you to rock some of your own!

Hot Toddy Recipe

Ok yall so my Hot Toddy was LITTY! If you want to make it for yourself just folow the simple recipe below:

1 Black TeaBag

2 TBSP of Honey

2 or 4 TBSP of Honey Bourbon Whiskey

A Pinch of Nutmeg & Cinnamon. ( Or you can use Apple Pie Seasoning like I did)

All you have to do is prepare the tea as normal, add in all the other ingredients, and enjoy! It’s a perfect remedy if you have a bit of a cold, but does still have alcohol in it so drink responsibly!

My Top 4 Winter Accessories

Happy Friday Darling Divas!

It is still very much Winter and super cold outside, so today I am sharing with you 4 of my favorite winter accessories! These 4 babies help keep me warm and stylish all season long which is very important to a fashionista like me. So enjoy the video, and meet me below for more details.

Did you enjoy? I hope so! What are some of your favorite accessories that you like to wear during the cold to keep warm? Comment them down below! Shall we get into the breakdown?

1.Long Leather Gloves

I love my black leather pair of gloves because they give me old Hollywood vibes and they keep my hands and arms warm. My pair is from Wilson Leather, but here are a couple of other pairs that I think are pretty cute.

Target Long Leather Tech Gloves ( Comes in 3 different colors!)

2. A Stylish Hat

It’s so funny how after doing this video I realized that I am a hat girl! As mentioned in the video during the colder months I go for berets and fedora type hats. They help keep my head warm while still coordinating with my outfit. My beret is from Torrid and my Panama Hat is from Target. Here are some other hats I found that I think you all would like.

Top Headwear Wool Blend French Bohemian Beret, Women's, Size: One size, Gold
Walmart Beret. This hat comes in alot of cool colors!

3. Faux Fur

I am a winter baby, so Faux Fur was MADE FOR ME! I always love adding a little fur to any of my looks, so I sometimes wear a faux fur jacket or sometimes wear one of my detachable collars or my super glam stole! Check out my faux fur picks!

4. Skinny Heart

A skinny belt is a wardrobe must no matter the weather is, but a skinny belt in winter is a MUST for me! It keeps my outfits looking uniform, and can add a little oomph to any outfit! I always get my belts from either Lane Bryant or Torrid. Check them out in the links below

My 5 Goals for 2020

Happy New Year Darling Diva’s!

I know I am a bit late, but I hope you all have been having a great 2020 so far! I’m kicking off this year’s content by sitting down and sharing 5 of my goals for 2020. So sit back, relax, and let’s talk goals!

I hope you all have enjoyed! What are some of your goals for this year? Comment them down below!

My Goals for 2020

1.Consistently Post Each week.

Today’s video went up a little later than expected, but starting next week I will be posting every Friday at 5 PM EST. I also will now be giving sneak peeks to the next video at the end of each video! I hope this gets everyone excited to see what’s next!

2. Read at least 5 books.

I am looking forward to reading again! I’m kicking things off with the year of yes by Shonda Rhimes. If you would like any book reviews let me know!

3. Write more

I have always loved to write, so I’m excited to start up again! As promised here is a poem I wrote back in the day. I hope to write happier ones now that I’m older (lol) but I still am sooo proud of this piece.

Bleeding Waters

As I sit on our Bench that swings back and forth, I think of you. A small smile spreads across my face. I start to remember the times you sat there, giving me good company. A slight tilt of my head and I start to imagine you there again. Before the 24 hour relationship that forces me to share you with them. Before you were so cold. Before you locked me in a box of abandonment. Before I lost your company. I fight back tears as I remember the conversations about us becoming a we. It quarrels now with the answer of “wait until college” That answer that is the equivalent of a bee’s sting, scrapes to the knees and a heart attack. But I remain in the dark shadows of your mind while you birth others into the light. Since you have forgotten it is my job to remember. And by this time my eyes are bleeding the waters of you

4. Commit more to movement.

I am ready to get my sweat on again! I’m starting off with doing some really fun dance workouts by Fit by Ashley, then I will work my way up! I am looking forward to getting my groove on and improving my overall health at the same time

5. Do one act of community service each month.

Giving back has always been something that I wanted to do, and since getting back into it recently I have discovered how important it is for me to do it. I plan to do one each month, and I am looking forward to being a blessing to those in need.

So Darling Diva’s that wraps up the first video of 2020! I hope you all have enjoyed! If you are interested in joining the V.I.P. Mailing list click here to sign up!
