The 3 Most Important Things for Great Sleep

3-best-sleep-aids-melatonin-journal-sleep-sounds

Sleep is one of the most important things that we do daily.  I’m definitely not a fan of team no sleep.  As a matter of fact I’m not only a member of the Nap Team, I’m the Nap Team Captain. Sleep is going to be almost 1/3 of your life.  That’s how important it is.  Folks love to say that they’ll sleep when they are dead.  Ok…that’s fine if you want to end up dead sooner.  Not sleeping is shaving time off your busy life. So, when something stops you fromresting, it’s a problem.  That’s what happened to me when I got sick. Initially, it didn’t bother me as much...

Whit vs Food – Richmond, VA | Whit Wanders

About a month ago, me and the bestie traveled to Richmond, VA to go to an event hosted by Kim of Naturally Fashionable.  We decided to go up a day early and make it a mini staycation. Since neither of us had spent much time in Richmond (although it’s just a couple hours away), we wanted to make sure we enjoyed ourselves in the short time we were there.  So, other than the event, how does one enjoy themselves…EAT. GOOD. FOOD.  Duh! Then it hit me…the servings in Richmond are ENORMOUS!  Every place we went was a test.  It was… WHIT VS. FOOD The first stop on our trip was...

Winter Plus Size Clothing Haul | Fluffy Frugal Fashionista

Y’all, I’m just one of the laziest people on earth.  Ok just kidding.  But when it comes to my appearance on the day to day, in the first 30 years I was just a sweatpants, hair tied, chilling with no make up on type of girl. Lately, as I’ve turned 30, I’ve had to get my life together and amplify my cute!  I mean, I didn’t have to but I wanted to.  I had gone through a lot in my last couple of years and I wanted to be sure that I was extra cute because WHY NOT.  Why not be cute?  Why not have fun?  Why not have a...

Makeup is a Gold Digger

You see, I spent the better part of my WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE avoiding this chick.  We’d pass each other and I’d nod like wassup, makeup.  I was forced to hang out with her like twice.  It wasn’t bad but you know, we just didn’t click. That all changed in the last year or so.  First it was lipstick.  I mean who doesn’t love lipstick.  Actually, I think it was the emergence of the purple lip trend.  I LOVE PURPLE.   Then, I got mascara…then eye shadows.  Then I took a break because I did not know what to do with the eye shadows.  I couldn’t possibly keep spending money for...

Winter Workwear #2

The second week of work was a time to get back into the flow of things.  By this time, it seemed like we had never left.  We were all looking forward to the 3 day weekend and wishing for snow days.  Looks like our wished did come true.  Hopefully, these breaks will get us through until our next days off in March! To keep hope alive, I decided to do something different.  I sported a SUPER LONG straight wig with an old school turban on top.  This turban reminds me of my great grandmother who had plenty of these. I matched that up with my white sweater from Ashley Stewart...

How to Create the ULTIMATE Vision Board

Vision boards have been getting more and more mention in the last few years.  I’ve done vision boards for the last couple of years.  The first one I did was virtual and the two I did last year were both physical. So, now you’ve decided that you want to make a vision board.  Where do you get started? There are a few things that go into making a vision board and you need to think about these things before you get started making your vision board.  If you don’t take a moment to consider these things, your vision board may not do what it’s supposed to do and won’t be...

Winter WorkWear #1 – Outfit of the Day

Last Monday was the first Monday back to work for most of us.  (If you had more time off, I’m jealous and don’t want to hear about it.)  I was determined to have a good first day back although I was sure that a monumental amount of work was awaiting me on the other side of the building’s door.  Even so, I decided to do two things to help make the day a success.  The first thing I did was wake up early so that I could get to work early.  The second was make sure that I was wearing something that I thought was cute.  If you look good,...

#ChurchFlow Outfit of the Church – December 2015

I’m home for the holidays and so of course I had to go to church.  Granny ain’t gonna have you not making church at least once while you’re home.  My home church is particularly tiny but a few of the members who are my age are home for the holidays.  So we’ll all be there (and possibly forced to participate as if we are current members…small country church life).  I decided to play it a little differently and wear my African Print Skirt and magic happened from there.     Tank : Old Navy Cardigan: Ashley Stewart Leggings: Charlotte Russe Skirt: Samira Jewelry Shoes : The Shoe Asylum  I think...
