If you don’t know Tumblr, think of it as the teenager to Pinterests mom. Recently, I’ve been spending time on the site & building an inspirational body of images on it. The amount of themes, photographs and designs available on it will have your imagination on fire!
Tumblr pink is a concept I read about in an article posted on fashionista.com (link at the bottom of this post). It highlighted the evolution of this subdued, pastel pink hue that has transformed in our culture from its girly and ultra feminine references to it becoming ultra modern and edgy. It makes sexy appear tough, blurs the lines of masculinity and femininity because each gender can wear the color proudly. The dynamics of this color began when Pantone announced Rose Quartz and Serenity as colors of the year for 2016. This color has been used on many ads, in music videos like Hotline Bling by Drake, in tech like the rose gold iPhone and laptop. It’s encompassed a variety of industries for multiple purposes and it draws consumers when ever present. It’s the “hey, look at me” color of the moment and it seems like it’s just building up stem.
Heres my #ootd that coincides perfectly with the new blossoms popping up everywhere throughout the city, Pared with a badass leather jacket that has a minimalistic style, draws the attention to the long pink cardigan by Boohoo.com and emphasized by the Joe Fresh oversized scarf. Added with my Sketchers sneakers, my daughter and I are ready to enjoy the cool days ahead!
I hope this look inspires you and let me know what you think of this #ootd. Have a blessed day y’all!
Mama’s got her body back, yass! lol
Well.. maybe not for a few more months. I’m two months postpartum and my body has been slowly getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I’m really excited about the progress but my real challenge is to flatten out my stomach. I’m currently editing a birth story video to post up on my Youtube channel with all kinds of details about what had happened 😱. I’m excited to share it and I’ll have the link to that video in my next blog post.
Before my pregnancy, that was one area of my body that I really struggled to maintain and to tone. My diet was horrible but since I would spend a significant amount of time in the gym, I was content with just maintaining my weight. A lot of my clothes that I had before, either don’t fit me or I just don’t feel comfortable in anymore because of my c-section pooch. I really wanted to get some inexpensive pieces for my closet that (1) were not going to break the bank (2) I could comfortably lounge in the house in (3) and confidently run errands in. I know, I kick myself in the ass sometimes cause I would talk myself out of buying something because of all my requests.
I decided to spend my time and money on Boohoo.com, I had heard a lot of positive reviews through friends and some Youtubers. I was skeptical at first but then as I skimmed through the website, I had fallen in love with the items and the prices especially! But I was disappointed at the quality when I finally got my shipment. Some of the leggings were XTRMLY thin and see through and others just didn’t flatter my new body. The fabrics for all my items are soft and stretchy and my favorite item is this black jumpsuit. Simple yet versatile and is under the “little black dress” category which means it can be mixed and matched with different accessories depending your mood.
Thank you for reading along and checking out my blog. Let me know in the comments below what you thought about this look and what you think of boohoo. Be in the lookout for my next upcoming post for the link to my Youtube video link. Thanks again and have a blessed day!
