#Trying to Kick it….The End of the Week is #LikeNothingElse…

07/15/2011

Awww Suki Suki!  It’s the Weekend, Baby!  TGIF, For Real!  We made it, y’all!  See how the rest of the weekend is gonna play out for you.

Friday & Saturday- HAPPY

As you can see, we have made it to the end of the week and look at the smile on that face!  Too excited to be free to do what you want to do….even if it is just running errands around town on Saturday.  It’s your time and you can wake up at your leisure….Hopefully!  Songs were made about the weekend.  It’s Friday and I’m ready to swang. Pick up my girls and hit the party scene…Tonight, ohohoh, It’s Alright!-AALIYAH   Make sure to hit up a daytime party for me and get your fly accessories with TryingTwenties.com.

Sunday – WORRIED

Well, look it’s Sunday again.  Where did the last two days go?  Oh no, now you’ve started thinking about all the stuff you have do during the week.  School, Work, the kids, oh my!  How can you enjoy this last moment of your weekend without worrying.  I don’t know if you can. It’s called Sunday Anxiety!  It begins to take over you because you got up early, went to church possibly, cooked your evening meal, maybe even hung out with some friends for brunch.  You’ve had you last bit of weekend fun and you realize it has to come to an end…..And then….you move into the next phase…..

Sunday Evening – RAGE

Oh, No!  It’s time to go to bed.  You are really upset now.  Why is it that we go through this every week?  There has never been a day in my work career that I’ve felt joy about going to the job on Monday.   It requires prayer and meditation to just have enough strength to get out of the bed on Monday and make it in one time….LOL  Don’t trip, I’m glad I have a job, but I’m Mad I gotta go.  Anybody know of a job where I can work from home? Maybe that would ease the tension.

LIVE Life, Have a Great Weekend….And a Happy Monday!

Trying to Love Me….

03/10/2011

 I happened to be looking in the mirror this morning on the way to work and noticed my ears.  I actually thought to myself, “Wow, my ears are cute!  I love them”.  Not for the sole purpose of hearing from them, but becuase they are mine and they are not too big and not too small.  They are slightly elfin and have 2 piercings in each, one in which doesn’t function, but I still love them. 

I know… vain, huh?  But truth be told, I’ve had a complex for years about my features.  My mom’s side of the family makes fun of my dad’s side of the family’s feet.  And I got those feet.  It took me years to love them.  I also grew up with some mean little boys who thought my nose was big.  Thank God I grew into that…LOL  I was convinced that I would get a nose job at 18.  Then there was that dude who told me my eyes were too close together.  Thanks, right?!  Well, I’m glad to be able to say that I can see 20/20 with my eyes and focus on the things that matter most. 

That is learning to love me for what I have and not being bothered by what other people think of how God put me together.  I can’t say that I have the tightest abs, the longest hair, the curvy waist line, or the cutest nose.  But I can say that what I have is mine.  And I can say that it took me 30 years to get to this point of acceptance where I decide what I love about me without anyone else’s influence. 

So here’s to eyes, ears, noses and other body parts we neglect and don’t show enough appreciation for.  We struggle with acceptance in our Twenties, but we come to accept ourselves in our Thirties.  Tell us what makes you feel Fabulous.  Tell us what helps you Flirt and tell us what do find Fun accessorizing and dressing. 

I’m all ears!  And funny I should bring it up, but  I love accessorizing with earrings!…LOL  Check out some at our store. That’s where I get mine from. 

LIVE Life and LOVE Everything about you!

Trying to be Fabulous for Summer

05/11/2010

You know you are ready to kick it this summer, whether by the pool, at an outdoor concert, evening out with the girls, or on a date with your boo! Whether you are out of school for the summer or working your 9-5, you want to be fly when you are out and about!  Let us help you be your achieve Fabulosity!

Here’s a cute outfit from Nordstrom’s Junior’s Department that we think is a perfect summer ensemble that transcends the young, mid, and late Twenties dress code.  It gets our vote for Fabulous, Flirty and Fun!  Check it out today!

Since the model is not carrying a handbag or wearing any accessories, we decided to show you how to glam up the outfit with items from our store.   Try adding some Dangles that hail from our Flirty and Fun line.  They will enhance and compliment the turquoise and orange tones  in the Fabulous outfit above.  Both pair of Flirty earrings retail for $10.  Be sure to join our Facebook page and watch out for special deals coming your way through Google Checkout!

And don’t you need a Handbag to complete the outfit?  We thought so.  Check out two of our favs that we felt would compliment this outfit nicely.  This first Fun purse can go from work to play and is the more trendy yet conservative option.   The second Fun handbag is more of playful option for that poolside destination, as it is large enough to hold everything from your shades, bottled water, ipod, sunscreen to beach towel and bathing suit.  We like multiple uses for a product…LOL

Check out these Fabulous, Flirty and Fun items today!  We’d love to help you look Gorgeous this Summer!
