Fab's Top 10 Kicks of the Week!

Happy Thursday FABulites! How's your week going so far? Mine has been filled with both the highest of highs and lowest of lows as are most of my weekdays. As a high I had the pleasure of picking out BabyFab's and FabJr's  Halloween Costume and I can't wait  for you all to see my boys in all their cuteness and creativity! The lowest of lows came when my Supervisor asked me why I was late for work one morning and I looked him in his eyes and told him with a straight face that 10 was the new 9. Guess I don't need to say that didn't go over so well.  Due to this weeks experiences I decided to take today's blog posting back to what I'm most comfortable with and what might have started it all for the Frugal Flirty N Fab, The Must Have Kicks of the Week! Take a look!

Fab Family Race for the Cure!

Happy Monday FABulites! I hope everyone enjoyed a fantastic weekend! While my weekend was full of watching movies Addicted, Best of Me, and SexTape plus eating out and finally having an adult drink (Cotton Candy Cosmo), the most important and rewarding thing I did this weekend was participate in the 19th Annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure at Bayfront Park in Downtown Miami! It was such a beautiful day out and I was beyond proud to do my part in bringing  awareness to the fight against Breast Cancer and to have my sons FabJr. and BabyFab with me made it that much more special! Check it out!



The Susan G Komen Organization addresses breast cancer on multiple fronts such as research, community health, global outreach, and public policy initiatives in order to make the biggest impact about theRace to find the Cure for Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Awareness.



Luv this picture of FabJr. and Baby Fab sharing a little Brotherly Love before the race started. It's important that I teach my boys the importance of fighting and supporting a great cause at an early age and I'm sure this is something they won't soon forget.



I luv this picture although BabyFab seemed to have his sights elsewhere. With over 30,000 people at this event there was lots for us all to see and do.


The weather was absolutely gorgeous for the race and the scenery along the route was amazing! Miami is gorgeous!




Thanks for allowing me to share such a memorable day with all of you! Have you ever participated in the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure or is it something you plan on doing in the near future? I'd love for you to share your feelings in the comments and as always Make it a Great One and Support the Fight to Find a Cure for Breast Cancer!

BET Hip Hop Awards 2014 Recap



Happy Hump Day Luvs! I hope everyone is off to a fantastic start to this Wonderful Wednesday. Today I'd just like to take a moment and talk about last night's BET Hip Hop Awards 2014. Before I get started I just want to say that for years BET has received a bad rap for their award shows and I just want to shout from the rooftops, Have you Seen the Other Award shows Lately?? Last night I sat in my room proud as hell and it was because of what was being showcased by BET and the Hip Hop Awards!

Brandy


One of the first things I noticed was the fashion worn by todays young men and I have 2 things to say on that. The first thing is I will no longer fuss at my son when he just wants to wear his gym shorts and a tshirt to school daily cause obviously if he was influenced by others in the all new Hip Hop community things really could be worst. And the second thing is after I got over the initaial shock or what some of the performers were wearing I was happy to see the display of fashion. It was a long ways away from the baggy jeans and tshirts and I now feel like men's fashion is headed into more of a Jimmy Hendrix direction  and I look forward to seeing more of it. I think its time we allow men to be more expressive with what they wear and if last night was any indication, Get Ready!

The other thing that made me proud when watching the awards was the level of social respect and consciousness that was displayed by the performers, the host, the audience and participants. Every time I heard the mention of  Mike Brown's name I thought of social injustice and how Hip Hop brought this issue to the forefront last night. The moment of silence, the inspiring speech from pioneer Doug E Fresh to the introduction of Mike Brown's parents was simply amazing! Bravo BET!

Uncle Snoop Dog did a pretty good job as a first time host and I think what I liked best was seeing him dance and enjoy himself with the other performers. I mean if no one else had a good time, Snoop damn sure did! That's the way you earn a check in the land of the Frugal Flirty N Fab! The skits with my friend in my head Nia Long were hilarious! I am a sucker for curse words so hearing Nia belt them out was simply everything!

Overall the performances were great, the host was fabulous, the Hip Hop was intriguing and  made the 2014 BET Hip Hop Awards a Win Win in my book! Did you watch the awards? What were your favorite performances? What were your thoughts on the Hip Hop fashions? Share with the Frugal Flirty N Fab in the comments! Thanks and as always let's make it a Great One FABulites!

Make Lasting Memories And GoPro with BestBuy!

FABulites, I'm not sure if you're aware or not but when I first started out blogging I started with a basic run of the mill camera and you couldn't tell me anything! I thought they were the most beautiful pictures I'd ever seen until I came across blogs that completely blew my pictures out of the water. What was a girl to do? I waited and studied different cameras and after about 4 years I decided to go with something new. My blog has definitely grown leaps and bounds over the past 5 years so it should come as no surprise that once again I'm ready to take the leap of faith and upgrade to something a little more befitting of my current style. Not only has my blog grown but my family has grown as well and when I look back on our special memories I want to do so with the best possible pictures I can have!

Only the Strong Survive!

Happy Tuesday Luvs!Today on the Frugal Flirty N Fab I'd like to share something a little personal with all of you, I mean after all we are family right? Well about 3 weeks ago I went to my local neighborhood park for my evening workout with BabyFab in tow and something really awful happened. Before I say anything else no I wasn't hurt, attacked , robbed or assaulted but my pride and confidence was definitely stolen. I'd been at the park for maybe 20 minutes and was on maybe my second lap when I first head the car alarm going off. My first thought was that someone had accidental hit their panic button on their keychain and for maybe another 5 minutes or so I didn't think twice about hearing the alarms. Then I noticed a majority of the people who were previously walking were now heading over to the parking lot. By this time I'd noticed there were now a couple cop cars in the very same parking lot I'd parked my car earlier so i wheeled BabyFab to the parking lot to see what was going on. As I got closer I could this situation was worst than what I'd imagined!



While BabyFab and I and countless others were trying to get our exercise on at the park a group of men thought it was the perfect time to break into the cars sitting in the parking lot. There was glass everywhere and several car trunks had be broken into as well. I honestly didn't know if I should feel relieved that it was just a car robbery and be thankful that no one got hurt or to be hurt and disappointed by the mere fact that here I am trying to be great and get my exercise on with my 8 month old while someone was probably watching me and deciding to commit such a brazen crime in broad daylight. Imagine my shock when i realized there were only 2 cars that the burglars for some reason did not get into and Yes, one of them were mine! OMG! while I was overjoyed that for some reason my car had been spared I still couldn't help but feel bad for those around me. What I knew instantly at that very moment was that I'd completely lost my faith in exercise. I mean what if i had of been in the car with my baby when the guys jumped out to rob the cars. Who knows what could have happened? 
Its officially been 8 weeks since the whole Robbery in the park ordeal but for some reason every time I thought about wanting to workout my mind drifted back to how in the blink of an eye you realize no one is actually safe and how easily my faith in humanity could be tested.
Today for the first time since the horrid incident I returned to the park. I was tired of not being able to work out plus I  refuse to allow the actions of a idiotic few to determine not only my health but also my happiness. I don't even think I can put into words how good it felt to be back at the park today. It was filled with everyday people and kids walking, running and laughing just the way I remembered it last and immediately reminded me of my favorite saying which is "Only the Strong Survive! Have you ever had to overcome a not so nice situation in order to keep your health and sanity in check? If so tell me a little about it in the comments section. Thanks for listening and visiting the Frugal Flirty n Fab and I can't wait to hear your stories!
