Summer of Savings with Walmart Family Mobile!

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser, Walmart Family Mobile. All opinions are mine alone. #SummerIsForSavings #CollectiveBias #WFM3


Can you believe summer is coming to a close? I can't! It has been the most amazing summer ever for my family and I and I can proudly say I owe a great deal of that to the frugal fabness of the Walmart Family Mobile Plan. This Summer I decided to take full control of both my Finances and Time Management by just living in the moment enjoying my family every step of the way and I'm proud to say that with a little help from Walmart Family Mobile I managed to do just that!




My kids are growing up so fast. That's why  I'm thrilled I realized sooner rather than later that now is the time to create lasting family memories because once today is gone we'll never get it back again! We place such an emphasis on working but when it's all said and done how many of us later end up regretting the amount of time we spent working instead of enjoying our families. With the help of the Walmart Family Mobile Plan it's truly been a Summer of no Regrets and one we'll cherish for years to come.



I kicked my summer off by heading to the nearest Walmart to see exactly what they had to offer. When I laid eyes on the LG L59 Grace I knew without a doubt my Summer would be immediately kicked into gear. I wasted no time picturing the possibilities and adding up all the money I'd be saving by signing up for the $49.88 PLUS Plan  powered by T-Mobile featuring *Unlimited Talk, Text & Data, which now includes up to 15 GB of 4G LTE†  data, then 2G*.

Customers on this plan will also  receive a free VUDU◊ movie rental credit valued at $7.00 each time they renew their service.

Now that my mobile plan was hat I wanted it to be and saving me money It was definitely time to enjoy the fruits of my labor. For months I'd wanted to spend the day relaxing at a great day spa and this summer I was able to do just that. It was completely invigorating and I'd definitely recommend it if it's something you've been considering as well. Five minutes in and I'm positive your only thoughts will be how come you didn't do this sooner!


Sometimes the best thing you can do is just spend a couple days away from your everyday surroundings. This summer we were fortunate to be able to take a little  family road trip and stay at this amazing townhouse in Orlando. It was absolutely amazing and came complete with the newest of appliances, furnishings, and tons of things for the whole family to do. Who knew simplicity could be so magical?


I'll be the first to admit that I'm not really one for the great outdoors so when I agreed to spend the might away camping I think it caught everyone off guard. It'd mazing what you'll do in the name of family and much to my surprise it was an amazing experience we'll share for a lifetime over.


No summer is complete without several family friendly trips to the beach. Each outing I tried to make sure was more exciting than the last one for my boys. I made sure I packed all their favorite snacks, beach toys, and more, Summer of Savings, Please don't go!


Thank you all for allowing me to share with you just some of the possibilities that can happen when you decide to give Walmart Family Mobile a try.  Don't take my word for it, get a LG L59 Grace and $49.88 PLUS Plan  powered by T-Mobile and see it for yourself.

Blue Floral Wrap Dress Fit of the Day!


FABulites there's been so much going on with me lately it's no hard to tell if i'm coming or going. With so much happening I've been feeling a little out of my element. Not dressing up as much as I use to, not going out as much, and not really having the urge to look pretty I knew this was a phase I needed to say goodbye to. What does a girl do when she wants to spruce herself up without breaking the bank, She heads to Ross!

Wrap Dress-  Fashion-Style-Ross-Deal

I was in the store all of 10 minutes and out of nowhere this beauty jumped out at me. At first it was the color that drew my attention because I know most blue colors look great on my complexion.

Floral Dress- Maxi-Deal-Ross

It' wasn't until after I tried it on that I realized this dress had tons more to offer besides the obviousness of the amazing color. This beautiful floral wrap is super figure flattering, has a great pattern, shows the perfect amount of skin and just makes you proud to be a woman. When was the last time you bought a dress that made yo feel like that?

Wrap Dress- Summer Style- Fashion Trends

For the first time in weeks all I could think about after purchasing this dress was how I was going to style my dress, what shoes I was going to ear with it, what makeup I'd chose to wear with it, and best of all how I was going to share my Fab Find with all of you!

Natural Hair- Fashion- Style

Can I just say all over again I'm totally in love with this dress. So much so that I actually purchased 2 of them the other one being in my favorite color red. Rest assured that one will also be making it's way to a Frugal Flirty N Fab fit of the day post soon enough!


Floral patterns have always been good to me so when I noticed the dress was covered in pink floral flowers it was a no brainer that I'd rock my Boutique Sales Chic "Chic in Pink" Block Heels with this dress. I love how they add that pop of color to my look without distracting from the beauty of the dress.


Don't mind me just doing my signature pose on the wall because I got this superfab dress at Ross for a Super Cute $11.99! Yep you heard me right FABulites, This gorgeous wrap dress cost me a mere $11.99, Need I say more?


Thank you all for allowing me to share with you my Ross Fab Find of the day  and also for reminding me that looking and feeling good never has to cost you a million bucks! We all  fall off the track ever now and then but its good to know that we can also get right back on track!

Lavish Alice Must Haves!

I absolutely love when I come across a new designer that aligns so nicely with my brand,  and that's exactly what happened the other day while I was surfing the net looking for a couple fashionable options to send my summer off in style. At first it was the asymmetrical dress that caught my attention, followed by the most amazing pair of pants and then a geo print jumpsuit my soul couldn't seem to live without. All three pieces were courtesy of the brand Lavish Alice and immediately I wanted to learn all about them and more!

Known in the industry for their innovative and original fashions these two are taking the fashion industry by storm.

I also like the affordability of many of the looks. Sexy, Sassy, and Priced Right, What more could a fashion lover ask for? For additional information on Lavish Alice please visit LavishAlice.com

The Real on Revlon Colorstay Foundation!


FABulites, Have you ever accidentally fell into something only to later realize your union was inevitable and always meant to be? That's exactly what happened last week when for the first time I stumbled upon the greatness of Revlon ColorStay Foundation and  today I'll be speaking to all of you about how that chance meeting has since forever changed my life!

Makeup- Foundation

Just like a majority of you, I am also a creature of habit, so when I ran out of my favorite foundation, Nars Sheer Glow I wanted more but wanted nothing to do with the hefty price tag ($45) that came along with it. I mean I'm a bargain shopper and I absolutely and whole heartedly believe in my craft enough to know that there were less expensive options out there for me and that I just needed to take the time to find out exactly what my options were.



My coupon game is super strong! So strong that when I received a coupon for $5 off any Revlon foundation I knew this was my chance to test it out without feeling like I was just throwing my money down the drain. I wasn't at all familiar with Revlon foundation but I was willing to give it a try and see if I liked it or not. I was in the store for what seemed like forever trying to make sure I was picking the right one. I wasn't exactly sure what color worked best with my complexion or what was best for my skin type. What I did know was that I wanted something that could be worn daily nd that gave me the coverage I needed and at that moment, Revlon ColorStay entered my life for good!

Beauty- Natural-Foundation-Melanin

 I could not believe how perfect Revlon ColorStay was when I put it on. I'm no makeup expert by far but in no time at all I knew my skin was digging it. It was light, easy to apply, long lasting, didn't turn orange and gave me that flawless look I was going for. Revlon ColorStay, forever sold to the Frugal Flirty N Fab!

Frugal Makeup-Flawless Coverage

Thanks for allowing me to share with you my brief review of Revlon's Colorstay Foundation. What are some of your favorite drug store brands that give you the same flawless look the top more popular brands offer? Have you tried Revlon ColorStay and if so, what were your thoughts?

Fab's Must Have Summer Essentials!




Summer is definitely one of my most favorite times of the year. The kids are out of school, BBQ season is in full effect, the weather is beautiful, and it's just the most perfect time to sit back and enjoy some good times with your family and friends. Because I make it a point to make my summer months the most enjoyable I can, today I'd like to share with you some of my personal favorite Summer Essential to make sure it's done right, Let's Begin!



SUMMER GLOW-One of the first things you need to get you through the summer months is a great summer glow. This glow can be achieved by simply allowing the sun to naturally Sunkist your skin (safely), or by applying a really good skin bronzer to your face neck and maybe even the shoulders. You'd be surprised at just how far the right summer glow will take you so get up, get out, and get your Glow On!


SUMMER PEDI/SANDALS-Summer just isn't summer without being able to show off that cute new pedicure or fun perfect sandal. Take this time to enjoy something different, something fun. This is the perfect time to try that really bright nail color you were afraid of in the past and I personally think you're in human until you've rocked a pair of sandals to the office just once or twice. The summer months were meant to be enjoyed so show the world just how much you're doing that and have no regrets about it!


SUMMER SWEETSPOTS-I know you knw we all know the summer heat can be a little unbearable but at times but it's during those times that I need you to know that SweetSpot Labs Coconut Lime Gentle Wash and On-The-Go Wipes products have you covered. Coconut Lime Personal Wipes. are great for daily use in freshening up your sweet spot but also great before/during/after your period, wiping down your whole body after a workout (armpits, back of knees, neck etc..) while you’re at the beach, when you’re traveling, or just sitting in the car too long.  The Coconut Lime Gentle Body Wash is the only one product you'll need in the shower that' safe and gentle enough to use all over. Both the wipes and wash are alcohol and sulfate free and can be purchased for a cute $5.98 at your nearest Walmart location. These products are naturals, gentle, and smell amazing!


Summer is whatever you make it and I chose to make mine fantastic. Hopefully by utilizing and taking advantage of some of my Must Have Summer Essentials  from the glowing skin to the SweetSpots yours will be equally as amazing. What's topping your current Summer Essential list?

14 Must Have Summer Sandals!


Hey yall Hey and Happy Monday! How's the month of July treating you so far? Things have been super busy for me but not so busy where I can't take the time to share with you my Top 14 Must Have Summer Sandals! I got the most amazing pedicure this weekend and from that moment on I couldn't seem to get my feet or finding the most perfect pair of sandals off my brain. Let's take a look and after viewing you can let me know how I did with my selection.

I take caring for my feet very seriously and this includes making sure that pedicure stays on point far beyond the summer months as well as making sure they stay dressed to the T if you know what I mean. Sandals are cute, creative, functional, and when done right can be downright adorable. They come in a variety of prints, styles, and colors and can be purchases with even the smallest of budgets. Some of the things I look for when I'm shopping for sandals is great color, embellishments such as stones, fluff, or tassels, and a cute print. Just because sandals are flat by no means says they have to be boring or ugly.

What's your strategy when it comes to selecting the perfect pair of summer sandals? Which of my Top 14 Must Have Summer Sandals are topping your current Must Have List?

Frugal Flirty N Fab Covers Essence Music Fest!

Just when I think 2017 couldn't possibly get any better something happens to make me change my mind. In reality I'm just a Mom trying my hardest to live my best possible life while motivating, uplifting, and encouraging my family and friends along the way. Imagine my shock when I got the news that I'd been approved to cover one of the largest music festivals in the World after having it on my BucketList for over 5 years! Yep you heard it right folks. The Frugal Flirty N Fab had the honor of covering this years Essence Music Festival and today I'm sharing some  of the Festivals most memorable moments with all of you!


As most of you already know I'm a huge Mary J Blige fan so of course I had to be front and center when she hit up the Walmart stage.


This video of Mary performing will give you a little glimpse into why I love her so much. At one point or another this has been every one of us at the family BBQ!


One of the Weekend's most anticipated performances was that of Super Group Escape and trust and believe the ladies didn't disappoint!


Lately I'm absolutely intrigued by every move Chance the rapper makes! To be so young and talented and have such a powerful urge to give back is absolutely amazing!


 I have been a fan of this woman, Diana Ross since before I was even able to walk. It was a dream come true seeing her grace the Essence Fest stage.


I know I've said it before but there's something so soothing and calming about Monica's voice and presence. It's like she's a walking World Peace poster.


"Star" was definitely one of my most favorite shows of last season so it was truly an honor to hear them speak on the direction of the show and what we can expect next season.

Thank you so much for allowing me to share with you some of my highlights from the 2017 Essence Music Fest. I just wanted to send a special Thank You to my niece Sheniqua who captured all of the above pictures and videos  and covered for the Frugal Flirty N Fab!

Did you attend EssenceFest? What was your most memorable moment?

Hippy Heart Fit of the Day!


Hey yall hey and happy Monday!!! I hope everyone enjoyed a fantastic weekend. Mine was pretty good but as always I look forward to next one being better. Today I want to share with you my Hippy Heart Fit of the Day and I'd also like to have a little conversation with all my Mom followers about how much if any influence your kids have on what you wear. Let's get started!

Hippy Heart/ Boutique sales Chic/ Fashion

So allow me to set the scene. There I was getting ready to go have a drink with the hubby looking and feeling all cute when suddenly these words came from my 14 year old son's mouth, "Ma, that shirt is about 20 years too young for you to be wearing"! I laughed when he first said it and brushed him off but then when he said it again I really had to think about it.

All Black/ Block heels/ Jeans

So here I am, a 40+ Fashion & Lifestyle Blogger, Fashion boutique owning Boss who prides herself on being able to wear what I want when ever the hell I want to wear it listening to my 14 year old son's Mom fashion do's and dont's.  I mean when and how did this happen? Up until this very moment I had actually never considered anything actually off limit but am I finally at that age where I need to be a little more careful when choosing the things I'll wear? Am I?

Online shopping/ Sale/ Deal/ Trends

Hippy Heart is one of our best selling shirts at Boutique Sales Chic. I fell in love with it the first time I laid eyes on it and immediately knew I wanted it to be for sale at our boutique. I mean in my head this top is uni-age. That may or may not be a word but you know what I mean. I know there are some tops that women over a certain age might not feel comfortable wearing but in my head this one just wasn't one of them. If I'm being truly honest with you, I love this top because it gives the GIRLZ a little extra shine time. Women of all ages want the GIRLZ to shine a little , Right? Don't yall dare judge me!

Choker TShirt/  jeans/ block heels/ Boutique Sales Chic

Is there some truth in what my son was saying? Am I now at that age where I can no longer just wear whatever the hell I want to wear? Is it time to switch from Hippy Heart to Change of Heart? Clearly FABulites, I have questions!

Is my Fit of the Day inappropriate for a Mom or woman of my age? How much of an influence do your kids have over what you wear?

Intimate Conversation with Author Sheri Riley of Exponential Living!


While I can't seem to pinpoint it to one single reason or current event that's happening I can tell you it's an awesome time to be a woman in the United States of America. Being a Black Woman is definitely without a doubt my super power. That's why when I was informed that one of my current favorite authors, Sheri Riley , was going to be at Books $ Books in Coral Gables, FL discussing her best selling book, Exponential Living, Stop Spending 100% of your Time on 10% of Who You Are, being moderated by my good friend in my head Tracy Mourning I knew I had to be in attendance and soak up the gems that would be coming my way!


Sheri Riley is wife, mother, entrepreneur, author, motivational coach, sister, girlfriend, and so much more! In her book, Exponential Living Sheri shares with us the 9 Principles of Exponential Living that changed her life. Sheri shared that earlier own she used these same 9 principles in her everyday life and how they helped her with everyday living. As a result of this she began sharing these same principles with the people she worked with, family, and friends and noticed how those same 9 principles were making a positive impact in the lives of those around her. That's what inspired Sheri to decide she needed to write a book and share these principles worldwide.


One of my favorite things about the book signing is that it was very intimate and moderated by one of Sheri's close personal friends Tracy Mourning. It was beautiful to see how these 2 black women connected on such a spiritual level and shared their sisterhood with all that were in attendance. Sheri shared how the 4th principle, Have a Servants Heart and a Giving Spirit,  was a representation of Tracy Mourning, well the giving spirit part. Tracy as we know is no stranger to giving as she gives her all day in and day out to Honey Shine, her mentoring foundation for Girls and Women.


Throughout the conversation Sheri shared with us the most valuable asset we have is time, how we needed to learn the value of NO, why we shouldn't get upset when someone doesn't live up to our expectations, and how not to waste time trying to fit into someone else's mold of who we should be. It was an amazing, Book Signing, and Conversation and I left feeling beyond inspired. It was the most perfect way to spend a Saturday evening for sure!


Have you had the chance to check out Exponential Living? Which principle do you relate to the best?

ThursdayThrowback-Lion Country Safari Summer of Savings!

Now that school's out I want to provide my boys with the best possible Summer on record and I refuse to use that old I'm working statement as a bailout.  Because I'm not available for the daily activities I promised I'd put additional effort into making the weekends fab and on our first Summer Saturday that's exactly what I did by taking a visit to Lion Country Safari in West Palm Beach FL! 
http://www.frugalflirtynfab.com/
The only thing better than experiencing something new for the first time is being able to experience it with your family. BabyFab, FabJr., FatherFab and myself were all super excited to be visiting Lion Country Safari for the very first time. We didn't really know what to  expect but after being there for just a short time it would be a day we wouldn't soon forget.
http://www.frugalflirtynfab.com/
Couple quick pics of the kids and myself enjoying our Saturday at Lion Country Safari. It's only been a couple days since we visited and FabJr. has already requested to have his birthday party there and also wants to know the next time we'll be able to take another visit.

http://www.frugalflirtynfab.com/

Let me just start out by telling you this park is Gorgeous! As the nation's first "Cageless Zoo", Lion Country Safari has been a leader in the conservative movement since 1967 and strives to ensure genetic diversity and sustainability among several threatened and endangered species

http://www.frugalflirtynfab.com/

One of the very first things you experience after entrance into the park is the animal drive thru and I'm not even sure I can put this remarkable experience into words. I mean I have visited several zoo's in my time but nothing has ever made my experience as up close and personal as did Lion country Safari. Imagine being in your car driving and being just feet away from an African Lion, impala, Zebra, or Southern White Rhinoceros. Out of this world Amazing Right! Best of all the looks on my kids faces when the Ostrich actually comes up and pecks on your window!

http://www.frugalflirtynfab.com/

Another great thing about visiting Lion Country Safari is that once the drive through portion of your visit in completed you can then park your car and proceed to the walk through portion of your visit. the scenery once again is Gorg when you walk through. It was probably somewhere near 90 degrees on the day we visited so it was a very welcomed relief to all the kids to have a little fun in the water park. Admission to the water park is included in your park admission so it was really nice to be able to enjoy all the parks amenities without have to pay anything additional.

http://www.frugalflirtynfab.com/

When you want to take a little break and get a personal look at the beauty of Lion county Safari when you take a boat ride, take a nature walk. You also have the option of visiting the animal encounters, petting zoo, animal exhibits where you can visit the Spider Monkey's, Porcupines, Burmese Pythons and more. One you feel like you need a little recharging you can pay a visit to the main restaurant where they provide a variety of meal option. whatever you need or want, Lion Country Safari has you covered!

  One of my favorite parts of the visit was the Parrot Exhibit. Beauty at it's finest!http://www.frugalflirtynfab.com/

Thanks for allowing me to share my families visit to Lion country Safari with you. For additional information or to plan your next visit please visit http://www.lioncountrysafari.com/
