Holiday Picture Perfection with Canon and Best Buy!

It's the most wonderful time of year and what better way to capture the magic than with the prefect Canon DSL Camera. When I received my Canon EOS Rebel T5i  I had no idea exactly how much my life as well as the life of my blog would change.

Who knew I'd be so personally and professionally compassionate about digital imaging and my very first Canon product but at a time when I was looking for a way to take my blogging to the next level the Canon EOS Rebel T5i allowed me to effortlessly do so. When my family increased from a family of 4 to 5 my Canon also helped me capture the most amazing moments and now that the Holidays are upon us I wouldn't trust my most treasured moments to anything else!

What a Difference A Year Makes! Throwwback Thursday Maternity and Beyond!

Hello FABulites!! Today in honor of it being throwback Thursday and also BabyFab's recent First BDay I thought it would be fun to share with you one of my most Memorable Throwback Thursday looks!
I can't believe this was my situation just a year ago! I mean can you all see the nose and the head swelling!!LOL! Anyways just a word of advice to all my Preggo Ladies in the mix. One pretty great thing I did while pregnant was instead of picking up every maternity item I could find I instead looked for items that I could wear both while pregnant and get my money's worth wearing them afterwards as well. Maxi dresses were super great for this and also make for a pretty awesome Throwback Thursday post!  What were some of your favorite maternity fashion secrets? Do you wear the same items you wore while pregnant or have you gotten rid of those items? I'd love to hear your feedback in the comments section and as always thanks for stopping by!

Happy 1st B-Day BabyFab!

FABulites, I'm going to keep this post short and sweet. I have no idea  where the time went but  today, December 16th, I'd luv for you to  join me today in wishing the one and only BabyFab a very special first Birthday!! Yep, you heard me right, BabyFab is 1!!

It's been one of the best years of my life and I owe a very big part of that to Mr. BabyFab himself. You never know how much joy a baby can bring into your like until you have one. Because of him I now see the goodness in things I once thought were messed up and I try just a little bit harder instead of giving up. I want to be the best mother I can possibly be to him and his sister and brother and introduce him to this great big world. Happy BDay BabyFab and may all your wishes and dreams come true!


Sam Edelman Monday Must Haves!

Happy Monday Luvs! I hope everyone enjoyed a Fabtabulous weekend. This weekend I managed to tackle my dreaded struggle tree, get some Holiday shopping done, and experience my first ever Party Bus! My weekend was everything I needed it to be and then some! So that Monday can hopefully follow in the footsteps of my Fab weekend I give you my Monday Must Have Kicks of the week!

Monday Must Haves

It's rare that I come across a fab caged bootie that I don't like which is why its super hard for me to come up with a reason for me not owing any! Yep you heard it right, I have never owned a pair of Fab caged booties but these Sam Edelman Black Napa cuties may be the first to break that streak. Enough about me and my Must Haves cause clearly I can go on for days on end but what are your thoughts on Aubrina? Is it a Luv em or Leave em for my Sam Edelman  Monday Must Haves?

I worked hard all week and today after work I'll be meeting up with one of my girlfriends for some much needed Margaritas and Mexican food and lets just say food and drinks are one hell of a inspiration....Take a look!
Not too long ago the thought of a pair of high waist acid washed skinny jeans would have been called Mom Jeans and a fashionista's worst nightmare but can we just say this style and fit was simply made for me, I Luv them!

No look is complete without a pop of color so I threw on my new Penny loves Kenny Platform sandals and headed out! How do I look? What motivated your Friday fit?

Fab's Must Have Blanket Capes!

While I know we don't experience much of a Winter in Sunny South Fla that doesn't stop me from wanting to prance around in the latest and greatest of winter gear. When the temperature reached down into the 60's today the one thing I couldnt wait to get my hands on immediately popped into my head. Yep, you guessed it right, I'm talking about the almighty Blanket Cape!

Blanket Capes

While I currently don't own any, I'm head over heels obsessed with the blanket cape. For those of you who are wondering, A blanket cape is a form of outerwear that when worn blankets a majority of the body.  I find them to be fashionable, fun, and most of all warm when they need to be! Who could ask for anything more? What are your thoughts on the current blanket cape trend? Do you own any and if not which ones pictured above are making your Must Have Wishlist? Luv em or Leave em FABulites?

3 Blogging Goals I hope to Accomplish by the End of 2014!

Happy Tuesday Fabulites! Have you ever heard the term of speaking something into existence? That's what I plan on doing today by discussing with you my Top 3 Blogging goals I hope to accomplish by the end of 2014. Yeah I know its only  23 days away but I think its pretty amazing what the body can do when the mind is willing and able!  Let's Dive In!

  •  I would absolutely enjoy finishing off 2014 by meeting all of my social media goals. I mean lets face it, You can be as great as you want to be but if no one is interested in sharing in your greatness or you encouraging the greatness of others then really how great are you? If you enjoy talking about all things, Fashion, Family, Fun, and straight up Fabness check out my Facebook Page, Follow me on Instagram, Tweet me on Twitter and last but not least Pin with me on Pinterest!  I promise you'll have a blast!
  •  The Frugal Flirty N Fab has always been big on Holidays and this one is no different. This year I would love to collaborate with other locals in the South Florida community to provide a needy family who otherwise couldn't afford to have a nice Christmas with a super surprise. Nothing too extravagant but definitely a  Nice Meal and some Christmas presents for the kids.  This is something I've always wanted to do it's just that I'm currently a little better at talking about it than putting an actual plan in motion but my Heart is definitely in the right place. HELP!
  • .My third blogging goal is to make sure I post a daily post 5 days a week for the remainder of the year. Just recently I slipped into a zone where I was barely posting twice a week and there's no way around it, that sucks! At this stage in the game posting is clearly my chosen form of therapy so when its off so am I

Welp that's all I have right now Fabulites. Do you think I'll be able to accomplish my 2014 Blogging Goals? I would love to hear your feedback and also feel free to share your end of the year goals with me as well. I mean after all sharing is caring right? 

Naturally Me and Luving it!

For as long as I can remember when it came to my hair I only wanted one thing, Long hair. Due to the perms, mistreatment, weaves, bonding glue, and a variety of other awful things long hair just wasn't in the cards. Not only wasn't long hair in the cards, healthy hair wasn't either until I decided once and for all to make a change. One day the queen of rocking a new hair style every other week decided she was tired of paying the ridiculous prices for weaves, tired of not getting the proper amount of sleep because I didn't want ruin my new hair do, and just tired of all the straightening, flat ironing, and wrapping and decided to big chop and let the chips fall where they may! This is the outcome!

After being natural for an amazing 2.5 years the decision I made to go all out natural has been by far the best decision I've ever made for my hair. The funny part is that I had no idea things would be this way. Can we just take a moment to give a round of applause for all the funds I've saved by living in my natural state! Amazeballs! I'm utterly shocked and confused when I hear people say they can't deal with the natural lyfe cause this right here for me is where its at! People are quick to talk about the illuminati but have you ever walked passed another natural and not made some type of secret eyecode  contact with them....we all have right! lol! The first picture on top was from my first 6 months of going natural and bottom middle is a couple months ago. I'm always amazed at where I started and where I am today. What the future holds, no one knows but I can assure you whatever happens I will forever remain Naturally Me! 

Living the Natural Lifestyle or thinking of going Natural? If so take a moment to share in the comments how long you've been natural and what's been the best thing about your decision so far! Thanks and Enjoy!
