Cyber Monday!

Hi Luvs,

How was everyone's Thanksgiving and Black Friday? There were some great deals and special treats on Black Friday. Sadly, I had to work on my favorite holiday, but I am sure people racked up on early Christmas gifts.

Today is Cyber monday. Another amazing day. Whatever you missed on Black Friday you can get today on Cyber Monday. Here's a list of all the hotspots to shop online. I personally love shopping online. It can have its downfalls like not being able to try certain things on for people who absolutely need to try things on, but it really is a hassle free way to get the goods.

Click the link and if you have it, shop till you drop. I'll catch up with you all tomorrow to talk about Alicia Keys you do not want to miss my thoughts on her :-).

~Fierce Find~

Hi My Luv's,

This week has been non stop on the go for me. Lots of highs and lows similar to the weather hehe. I have been looking for a new fab messenger back to accompany me on my errands and found the cutest one at my favorite spot....

~ F I E R C E  F I N D~


Name: Metal Trim Shoulder Tote
Price: $34.80
Colors: Black and White
Retailer: Forever21 
*In stores and online

When I first saw this tote, I thought to myself how adorable it was in a cute edgy way. I reallllllllly love the white one, but I personally dislike the color white in general so obviously black was the better choice for me. It's not a big bag, but its big enough with lots of compartments (which is a plus) and its perfect as a shoulder or cross body bag (which is how I wear mine ;-). This is a cute cheap investment.

Week Round Up (style, shoots, Jimmy Choo)

Happy Early Monday Luv's,

This week has been crazy busy so I think a recap is necessary.

For starters, I finally got some edited shots back from my Glam Rock shoot and they look great. See for  your viewing pleasure :-).

Again, many special thanks to the glam team that made the shoot a success I hope to work with all of you again in the future.

Right now I am looking for some down time to start working on my next shoot. I am hoping that can be done within the next few weeks so stay tuned.

Aside from that, this week I had to do some personal style consultations for two clients and I must say they are both very pleased. Both were party occasions so I will keep you all updated with pics from those as I get them.

Last week I hooked my little sister up for her school pictures and she looked glam adorable. If you remember the skirt was a previous fierce find in October.

Now onto some news from the stores. I know all of you Jimmy Choo addicts are aware that the new line launched on November 14th at H&M retailers. I dropped by my favorite H&M  (51st and 5th Ave) location this weekend to check it out and Oooo MMMMM Geeee it was bananas. The lines were out of control hehe. The collection is interesting to say the least. As you walk into the store your automatically hit with the Jimmy Choo collection so you cannot help but look and buy. The shoes are glamorous. Love them. Let's just say Mr. Choo is raking in big bucks with this impressive line. 

With that being said I thought we would do something different for fierce find today. Below are some of the fabulous shoes that are being sold from the collection at H&M. The prices will not be listed but they range from $$ to $$$. 

If you have yet to check out the Jimmy Choo collection at H&M please do and let me know your thoughts.

Highs -n- Lows: Life -n-Shoes

Hi Luv's,

So another day and we are comfortably into November. The transition period from fall to winter is slowly in effect. My days have been long and my nights even longer. The hustle and grind of an up and coming fashionista is a roller coaster.

Now for those of you who do not know, Banana Republic: The NEW Concept  store in Soho, NY will be re-opening its doors to all its Soho clients (new and old) to reveal a new creative face. Thursday November 12 until Sunday November 14th,  if your in the area stop in to shop and mingle with a few surprises.

Onto my intriguing....

~ F I E R C E  F I N D ~


Name: Zippered over the knee boot
Color: Chestnut, Black and Grey
Sale Price: 69.99  49.99
Retailer: Newport News 

These riding boots are edgy and adorable to me. It reflects my moods. One minute I want to do high and sleek the next I want to do low and casual. I call them perfect solution boots. These are my next investment. Newport News to me is a hit and miss. They definitely have random treasures though.

Some Coach highlights!!!

Hi Luv's,

Happy Early Thursday.

Today is a good day for me because I have no school, work, internship, shoot, nada. It's a good feeling. I can catch up on sleep and the only thing I have planned is meeting up with my godsister, my fabulous web designer.

First, I want to apologize for not posting a fierce find for the week. This week has been a bit crazy for me and time got away. So I am really sorry for that; however, I fully intend to make it up :-).

Sidebar: I had to put a "fit" together for my little sister's graduation pictures and  decided on heading to one of my fav spots Forever21. Usually I order online, but since the pictures are in a day or two we had to hustle quickly. During my search to put together the ideal look I came across one of my past fierce finds and ended up including it in the "fit". I was excited. I'll def post the look up in a few days.

Moving on....

So yesterday when I was at my internship I had to research Coach for a bit and I was truly surprised. I haven't bought anything from Coach since May and the last time I was on their website I was not impress with their footwear options. The website had limited images and it was undergoing some changes.

Iunno about yall, but Coach is the casual luxury brand for people. Most people own something that's Coach. It's the type of brand where people stay loyal because it was that first big ticket item that you had to be trusted to appreciate. I still remember when I got my first Coach bag in junior highschool. My mom USED to be the only Coach addict. Memories.

Anyways, these days I usually invest in a few pair of Coach sneakers for the year, MAYBE a pair of flats/sandals and I'm done. So you can only imagine my shock when I visited the website and the selection was a pleasant surprise. They had an array of footwear ranging from boots to sneakers. Some interesting variations especially in the sneakers which is cool to reflect fashionistas that want to wear fashion sneakers such as Coach and Gucci as opposed to regular Nike's or Adidas.

While I visited the site I decided to share some of the hot ticket items I liked and would invest in.

 Coach Fierce Finds:

~Coach Aubrie Boot~

~New Ashley Heel~

~New Liah Flat~

~Coach Finch Sneaker~

Personally, I think these are all very adorable. Looks like my list has some new added items. Definitely check out Coach if you have not already. They have some great new holiday additions.
