A Morning in the Life with Sundown Naturals® Adult Gummies!

I have been compensated by Sundown Naturals® and Pollinate Media Group for this post as part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Sundown Naturals® but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #GoodnessGiveaway #sharethegoodness

Probably one of the most frequent questions I get is as a busy Wife, Mom, Employee, Boss, Brand Builder, shopaholic, and more, exactly how do I go about managing it all. Because I am asked this so frequently I thought it would be kinda cool to share with you exactly what a morning looks like in the life of the Frugal Flirty N Fab with a little assistance from my friends at Sundown Naturals® Adult Gummies of course. You ready?

I didn't want to scare any of you so I thought we should skip Monday and start out with my typical Tuesday morning routine. My Tuesday begins with a 5:45 wakeup routine where I head to the restroom as quickly as possible, wash my face, brush my teeth, grab three of my favorite Sundown Naturals® Adult Gummies, and proceed to my local park for my morning workout. Before the questions start rolling in please allow me to explain my Adult Gummies stance. I have never been really good at taking any type of pills or vitamins no matter how beneficial they were to me but when I realized that Adult Vitamins were now being offered in the form of Gummies and no longer thought of as being just for kids I knew I now had exactly what I needed to stay on top of my game. I head to Walmart (THE PLACE for vitamins for the whole family) as needed and make sure I keep my Adult Multivitamin Gummies on hand for overall health, B12 Gummies to get the energy metabolism support I need, and my Fish Oil Omega 3 Gummies for heart, bone, immune health and so much more. This combination definitely allows me to put my best foot forward and face whatever life throws my way. Sundown Naturals® are free of gluten, dairy, and artificial flavors◊ and if you want to find out which ones are best for you then head over to here and take the quiz. Also make sure to Enter the Goodness Giveaway Sweepstakes today!! Head into Walmart and purchase at least 1 Sundown Naturals® vitamin product for a chance to win weekly prize packages and a grand prize! Every week, one winner will be selected to choose from 1 of 4 prize packs – Yogi Pack, Fitness Pack, Foodie Pack, or a $100 Walmart Gift Card. Simply upload a picture of your receipt here and you are entered for a chance to win some incredible prizes now through 11/1!

Now that you are well versed in my Adult Vitamin life can we move on with the rest of my morning?
Once at my neighborhood park I proceed to complete my 2-3 mile run, squats, sit-ups and sometimes arm and back exercises before jumping back in my car and heading home. Once back home I then have approximately an hour before I have to drop m Toddler to day care, get my teen to his bus stop and head off to work myself. No one said it was easy but all so worth it in the end! I run in, shower, hit up my five minute hair and makeup routine, get my teen and toddler breakfast ready, both dressed to the best of my ability, backpacks and snacks prepared, make a mad dash for the door and off to work I go!

Thanks for allowing me to share with you my morning routine. Are you a fan of Sundown Naturals® Adult Gummies and if so which ones do you find most beneficial? Oh and of course before you go share a little with me about your morning routine, it's only fair!

How I'm Rocking Rust This Fall!

Happy Monday Luvs! Hope everyone enjoyed a fantastic weekend and is ready for whatever this week throws your way! I actually got a little shopping done this weekend, without the toddler and also managed to catch my friend in my head (Kevin Hart's) new movie What Now which was hilarious as expected. Those to things alone made for a Frugal Flirty N Fab Winning weekend in my book but I'm going to take that Winning Feeling a step further by sharing with you How I'm rocking one of my most favorite colors today on the blog, You ready?

Rust Colored Dress

 So for those of you who know my style best you know I'm a huge fan of bold bright colors and have no problem rocking them year round. I actually think that's one of the main reasons why I could never get too excited about Fall, kinda dulling my shine a little or so I thought. This year I decided to give Fall a try and in that trying came my love and adoration for the color Rust. What took me so long?

Rust Ruffled Dress

When this dress that combined two of my favorite trends, off the shoulder and ruffles caught my attention I knew immediately I was sold. What I didn't know was how wonderfully the color rust would compliment my skin tone. Melanin on Fleek, that's what the kids say right?

Rust Midi Dress

My original thought was to wear this dress with some nude block heels but for some reason after I put the dress on I had the sudden urge to go as dark as possible with the shoes.

Rust Bodycon Dress

I'm a lover of all things pretty and when I wear this chic and sassy number it makes me feel beautiful on the inside and outside, Just what a dress is supposed to do. Ladies if you don't own that one dress that makes you look and feel like a million bucks you need to get one ASAP!

Fall Color Rust

Wearing thin little number to work might not be the first thing that comes to mind but I'll assure you there's always the possibility. I say you throw on a little cover up and slay your way to work. if I had things my way I would ear this for a date night with the hubby. It's sexy, fun, fashionable and screams I'm with him!

Bold Hair and Makeup

Would it be going completely overboard if I told you the dress even made me have a great hair day as well? My hair doesn't like being showed up so when the time came it quickly got in formation with my rust colored bombshell! Ha! To complete this look I threw on one of my favorite fringe earrings and a little Milani Matte Love on the Lips and went about my life! Love it!

Color Rust

As always thanks for allowing me to share with you how I'm rocking Rust this Fall. You can definitely look forward to seeing lots more of this color on the blog. What Fall color has you captivated and How are you Rocking it?


Wednesday Wishlist!

Hey yall Hey and Happy Wednesday! It's finally starting to feel a little like Fall in my neck of the woods and I am ready to share with you all my current Fall Inspired Wednesday Wishlist, You ready?

 When I think Fall Fashions I immediately picture myself in chic sweater dresses, fab jumpsuits, boots, sweaters and blazers so it's no wonder that many of these items are topping my Must Have Wishlist. This super cute Open Shoulder Sweater Dress will serve as not only gym motivation but I can't wait for the perfect event to dawn this look! If this one is a little much for you then maybe this Sweater Dress is more your speed. For more of an every day look or to look super cute while running errands this Belong to Me Dress is a must.
I'm actually looking forward to attending the Mary j Blige and Maxwell concert when it comes to town Next Month and this LaceUp Jumpsuit will be perfect! Never really thought much of bodysuits but I really like this Nude one and I think it'll be perfect with many of the fall Inspired bottoms such as both the leather and suede midi skirt trends etc.
Thanks for allowing me to share with your my Wednesday Wishlist. What Fall items are topping your Must Have List?

Fit of the Day-Off the Shoulder Tassel Dress!

Happy Monday Luvs! It's been a hectic couple of days for the Frugal Flirty N Fab but I'm anxious to start the new week. Last week we dealt with a hurricane, had a showdown at Bonefish Grill and missed more than 2 days of work. I also got the opportunity to check out Birth of a Nation which was beyond eye opening, Do a little shopping, and try to come up with a way to help Haiti out with it's much needed disaster relief! Now that I got all that out of the way it's time to let my Striped Off the Shoulder Fit of the Day do the rest of  the talking! 

Tassell Off the Shoulder Dress

I along with what appears to be the rest of the world am completely obsessed with all things that hang off the shoulder!! I mean  I seriously can't get enough of them! From the tops  to dresses I want them all.

Striped off the shoulder dress

It was love at first sight when this little number caught my eye. I have actually been working on switching up my wardrobe a little, trying to add a little more sophistication to my daily look  and this striped off the shoulder number was pretty much what I had in mind.

Striped Dress

I thought this look was both flirty n fun and perfect for the 90 degree weather we're currently experiencing in South Florida. The shoulder tie ups and tassels were definitely the icing on the cake. This look is perfect for everything from a day at the office, to a night out on the town, to the all so fab Sunday Brunch.

Booties and Stripes

To add a little additional CHICness to my look I decided to pair this dress with these Super cute booties I picked up from Burlington. They are so fab and comfy it's unbelievable. Get ready to see lots of these in the near future.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my Off the Shoulder Striped Fit of the Day! Are you as obsessed as I am with the off the shoulder trend? How do you plan on transitioning this trend from Summer to Fall?


Extreme Satisfaction and Showdowns at BoneFish Grill!

FABulites, If there's one thing you should know about me besides the fact that I love all things Fashion it's the fact that I also Love all things Food and Restaurants! Not only is it due to the  food itself it's also  because I love being able to share these experiences with my family but in the post below you will see sometimes things don't always work out as planned! This was definitely the case as we visited the BoneFish Grill to try out their new Fall Menu for the very first time!

Bonefish Grill Review

I couldn't wait to get to Bonefish Grill for my very first experience and you know, see if they lived up to the hype I'd heard so much about. I gathered up BabyFab and FabJr and we headed out to the Weston location completely excited about our meal ahead!

BoneFish Grill Appetizers

Bonefish Grill is an American dining casual seafood chain with locations across the United States. Since my hubby is allergic to seafood it was nice to be able to enjoy a little of it for myself since he wasn't joining me. I couldn't wait for our appetizer to arrive. I decided on the Thai Coconut Shrimp and our wonderful waitress brought over a super fresh nearly loaf of bread to go along with it. It was absolutely delicious and all the confirmation I needed to know I was in for one heck of a experience, or so I thought.

When the appetizers first arrived BabyFab was in good spirits. If you are the parent of a toddler or have kids in general then you know how that can change in an instant, and so it did!

BoneFish Grill Chicken Tenders

I felt BabyFab getting very antsy and I did not know If I'd be able to complete my meal with my sanity. In his defense he was just  waking up from a nap before we left from the restaurant and now that I look back on he may have needed a little more time before we headed out. I didn't want to prolong anything so I immediately orders him Chicken Tenders and fries from the kids menu and watched his little face light up when they arrived. He also had an apple juice along with his meal which seemed to do the trick or keeping him a little occupied as FabJr and I ordered our meals as well.

Filet Mignon and Crabcakes at BoneFish Grill

I decided to go with the Filet Mignon and Crab Cake meal which consisted of a 6 oz “center cut” sirloin, Maryland style crab cake, and two sides! One bite of the Crab Cake and I knew without a doubt I'd made the most perfect decision. I'm also a huge steak lover and the filet mignon was definitely within the top 3 I've ever had before! Delicious is an understatement!

Grilled Atlantic Salmon

Fab Jr. was doing his Teen thing and decided to go with the Atlantic Salmon meal with a tasty buttery garlic sauce. His meal was completed with Jasmine Rice, Steamed Broccoli and topped off with a Raspberry Tea for his drink. I think the picture does all the talking on this one, Amazing indeed which left him raving for hours to come! Little did we know the mother of all Showdowns was just ahead!

This cute pic was taken at the conclusion of the showdown. In toddler land a couple minutes can make all the difference. I know the parents reading can surely relate!

To make a long story short as soon as I began to bask in the glory of what was one of  the most amazing meals ever BabyFab took it upon himself to throw the Mother of all  Toddler Tantrums! He was upset because the waitress took his cup to give him an apple juice refill and things went down rather quickly from there. It ended with him spilling his apple juice all over the floor,  screaming at the top of his lungs, FabJr nearly having a Teen Attack , and me very embarrassingly having to find someone to clean up the mess before one of the restaurant goers slipped and fell making a bigger mockery out of what was a fantastic meal!

All in all, Showdown aside it was still one of the best meals I've ever had. I'd also like to mention how helpful and beyond understanding the staff was to the madness that occurred. Even asked if I wanted to stay for an on the house dessert. It felt really good knowing that not only was I able to consume a remarkable meal but they also had a perfect understanding of how Toddlers like to Show Up, Show Out and have a Show Down every now and then and for that I will always be grateful.

Have you had the pleasure of visiting Bonefish Grill? If you're looking for a fantastic meal at a wonderful family oriented establishment them make your way immediately!  For additional information, locations or to  review the menu please visit

Overcoming the Difficulty of Dieting with alli Weight Loss!

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and the makers of alli® weight loss aid. All opinions are mine alone. #alliInMyLife #After #CollectiveBias

Hey yall Hey! Just had the most amazing weekend and I couldn't help but to reflect on the significant changes that have happened in my life since I was introduced to alli® weight loss aid. I finally feel like I am in full control of my health and wellness, and today I'd love to share that journey that's brought me to this point with all of you! Get ready and Hold on tight for the after effect of my current weight loss journey with alli® weight loss aid and overcoming the difficulty of finding a diet that works.

My experience using alli weight loss

I knew from the very beginning that if I wanted to break the tradition of starting and stopping and not accomplishing anything throughout my weight loss journey I had to make some significant changes. It was never easy but here are the 5 Steps that Brought me Through!

The first thing I had to do was Change my super Poor Eating Habits. The definition of a fool is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results and that was what I was doing previously. Once I got serious I knew this was one of the most important areas I needed to work on. I began increasing my fruits, veggies, and lean meats while decreasing my carbs and unhealthy fats and wouldn't you know it I began to feel the difference. I also have alli® weight loss to thank for assisting me the most in eating and feeling better!

The second change that I made was I decided to Push Myself more when working out. It's true that the body will not allow you to do more than it can handle so I pushed myself day after day a little more than I did the day before and the results were amazing. I felt strong, empowered, energized and like I could single handedly take on the world!

My third step was probably the most difficult one for me to complete, Giving Up Soda! For most of my life I have been a soda fanatic but when achieving my goals was put on the line I managed to give it up for the last past 7 weeks. Amazing right! A couple weeks in I began to realize it really wasn't the food that was giving me that stuffed feeling all the time, it was the soda that I previously consumed with every meal. So long Soda!

My fourth step was to Make Water my Best Friend. My family and I enjoy eating out a lot and I am no stranger to the Friday night glass of wine, but in the interest of doing the right thing I traded all that in for one bottle of water at a time. Not only did it assist me on my weight loss journey but the new glow to my skin was pretty amazing too!

Last but not least and maybe the most significant part of my weight loss journey was staying true to alli® weight loss aid.  I follow instructions for use and took the recommended one capsule per meal that included no more that 15 grams of fat per meal, up to 3 times a day. There was never an easy moment, but because I stayed focused on my goals, the results were amazing!

alli® weight loss aid is the only FDA approved over-the-counter weight loss aid on the market and works by blocking 25% of the fat you eat from being absorbed by your body*.
The results of the above 5 Steps have been truly wonderful. I have managed to lose a whole 8lbs and I'm so looking forward to what the remainder of my journey will hold. Along with the weight loss I also have a new outlook on life and feel as though there's nothing I can't accomplish if I just put my mind to it. alli® weight loss aid got the ball rolling and for that I will forever be grateful.

Thanks for allowing me to share with you the effects of my current weight loss journey. I can't wait to share with you what's next!

*alli® (orlistat 60 mg capsules) weight loss aid is for weight loss in overweight adults, 18 years and older, when used along with a reduced-calorie and low-fat diet. Follow label directions. In studies, most people lost 5-10 pounds over 6 months.



Tapered Cut Love- The Journey!

Hey yall Hey! It's  early morning and I'm up getting all the deets on Hurricane Mathew but before I go into full blast panic mode  I wanted to  take a little time and speak with you about why I feel the need to show a little love for my new tapered cut, and how this beauty came about, You ready?

Tapered Natural Hair

I'm just going to be brutally honest with you because I know no other way.  A couple of weeks ago I'd had it with my hair and decided I wanted a look with a  little more edge and one that wasn't so predictable so I very hastily colored my hair and then proceeded to try to cut it myself, The Horror begins!

Tapered Hair Styles

All seemed pretty well after I was done and I was actually surprised I'd done such a great job. After watching what appeared to be a thousand natural hair cut videos on You Tube I felt pretty confident that I was doing the right thing and after the original cut was completed I was so pleased with my work that I made my very on video, See it here! I specifically remembered all being right with the world that day or at least so I thought!

Natural Hair Styles

By the time day two of my Tapered Life rolled around things weren't going as well as I originally thought. Clearly I wasn't as good cutting my hair as I thought and this little issue turned into a huge issue as I found myself pretty unsure of what to do next. Normally I would run into the comforting arms of my Puff but because of the amount of hair I'd cut off I could no longer get my hair in a puff. Immediately panic set in! At that point I decided to do the only thing I felt I could which was put it in two twist and hope and pray this tapered mess would just go away!

Why I wear a Tapered Style

After  a week of what I'm sure was hair anxiety I decided to place my pride to the side and let a professional hook me up! Friday evening after work I decided to head over to my boys Barber and allow him to correctly taper it for me. OMG when I tell you I felt the Hair Gods were shining on me once the cut was completed was an understatement! It was shaped perfectly, edgy, and just the look I was going for! I couldn't wait to get home and show it off ! Who knew hair could take you through such struggles? Definitely not I but in the end I consider it to be one of the best decisions I've made concerning my hair so far. The major lesson I learned is not to be afraid to try something new, take a leap of faith, and always be open to the possibilities I mean it's just hair right?

Thanks for allowing me to share my Tapered Life with you! I can't wait to hear your thoughts on my new cut! Does your hair ever give you anxiety? How do you go about deciding when its time for a new hair style or look?

FALLing for Milani!

Hey yall Hey! How's everyone doing today? Fine I hope! I have never actually done a makeup post before but lately I have been so obsessed with Fall Lipsticks that I thought it would only be fair if I shared a little of this Love Fest with all of you so get ready to find out why I'm FALLing for Milani!
Confession, Until the middle of last year I kind of  stayed clear of  Fall or any of the darker lipstick options. I'm not really sure why but for some reason I just didn't believe I'd be able to pull the look off. It wasn't until I came into contact with my very first Milani Matte that I knew I was doing myself a huge disservice and It's been nothing but Love ever since.
If you have subscribed to my You Tube channel then you already know of my excitement picking up Double Espresso and Sweet Nectar and when I combines those two with my fall favorites from the previous year Milani Matte and Flirty I knew without a doubt I have this thing call FALL on lock and I just can't wait to share additional looks with you. What I love the most about the Milani brand of Lipsticks is the great coverage, affordable pricing and the super fab color options that look great on a variety of skin tones. I also appreciate the fact that I can find Milani everywhere from the Drug Store to the Beauty Store to my favorite Department Stores, Milani all around!
Thanks for allowing me to share with all of you exactly why I can't get enough Milani! Are you a fan of Milani Lipsticks? What colors are you looking most forward to rocking this Fall?

Fab's First Video Fit of the Day!

Hi Guys, It's Thursday and I must admit I woke up feeling pretty fantastic today and hope you did as well! Today's the first official Day of Fall and although I can't tell the difference by far (Florida girl) I can definitely sense a change in the air. I feel like its the perfect time for growth and new beginnings and with those 2 things in mind I'd like to present you with my very first Fab's Fit of the Day Video!

One of my favorite things about being a Blogger is that you never stop growing and learning. When I realized that on my running days I have very little time to prepare for my day I knew it was my turn to share one of the ways I'm growing with all of you. Being that on these days it's now more important than ever that I find something to wear quick that needs very little attention and also that's going to make me feel Chic and Confident through out the day I knew the time was now to share a quick video with you showing how my look came together. When I matched this blue midi skirt with my basic off the shoulder over sized black tee I knew I had a winning look! That's why it's so important to not only fill your closets with the perfect Date Night looks but you also want to make sure you have your fare share of what I like to call (anytime) pieces that you can mix n match and put together on short notice. Makes all the difference in the world and I can't begin to tell you the peace of mind and confidence booster that comes along with it.
Thank for allowing me to share with you all my very First Fab Fit of the Day Video with all of you. If you like what you see please make sure to Like and Subscribe and then look forward to seeing more!

Things to Think about Before Heading to a Disney Park!

It's always good to GetAway, and  when you add in enjoying a little family time with your kids it  gets even better, but have you ever looked so forward to a family getaway then realized you weren't nearly as prepared as you thought you were or should have been? If so then you can definitely relate to this post, Let's Get Started!

I was so excited about being able to spend the weekend away with my family in Orlando that I, the mother of all planners failed miserably at planning accordingly. We had the four park 1day park hopper pass and can you believe I allowed myself to believe that we , 2 adults a Teen and a Toddler could actually take on all four parks? Silly Rabbit, Tricks are for Kids! I'm not saying that it can't be done but I'd definitely be interested in seeing the family that's able to pull off that fete!

I failed to realize that just because my Toddler enjoys seeing certain characters on TV does not mean that he won't freak all the way out when they appear up close and personal in his face! This picture was taken just moments before the bug attempted to have a friendly conversation with him and he leaped on my head screaming at the top of his lungs and holding on to my hair for dear life! It was so embarrassing because my hubby had to help me get him off and I know for sure there were laughs and illegal pictures taken!

Disneys Animal Kingdom

I clearly was not thinking properly when we got to Animal Kingdom and decided it would be in our best interest to go directly to see the Festival of Lions performance. My toddler is probably the biggest Lion King/Lion Guard fan there is and it brought me so much joy seeing his little face light up during the show but the tantrum that followed once the show was over was another story! He did not want to leave by any means and pretty much demanded Simba come back out for a repeat performance! If I would have been thinking I would have saved this performance for the end of our visit and not the beginning. Timing is everything!

Huge tree at Disney World

I was not prepared for the beauty of the 2 parks we visited. I feel like you should probably take a day alone just to walk around and see all the scenery. I enjoyed being able to take in what I did but I'm pretty sure there was tons of nature that was missed.

I should have had a better plan for seeing the animals at Animal Kingdom. Because I failed at planning things out I hate to say we barely saw any! No Lions, Tigers or Bears this go round!

I definitely was not prepared for how HOT it would be! I'm a Florida girl born and raised so I know a little something about HEAT but this was something all together different. I swear there wasn't a body of water around that I didn't feel like diving in! The Heat was Torturous! For the first time in forever I actually felt like I was melting! Did I mention I arrived at the park in my cute little off the shoulder jumper and sandals?  Anyone in their right state of mind should have known to wear sneakers, a dry fit shirt and comfy shorts. Lesson learned!

I should have been better at mapping out what Theatrical shows we wanted to see and which ones were of no interest to us. I'm pretty sure we missed out on some of the better ones. Maybe not better but catered more to our liking! When I finally had the chance to review what was actually available for us to see I knew immediately I screwed up! Can you believe we even missed the parade? Who does that?

While most times I greatly enjoy living in the moment this was one time I wish I would have taken more pictures and captured my families memories. After all was said and done I came home with tons of pictures from the park and only one family photo that was too dark to even make out. Next time I'll know better!

Disney Ferry Boat

Disney is huge and there's a lot to see so next time I'll make sure to pay careful attention to the different modes of transportation at each park. I was so thankful for the Ferry Boat and Train but afterwards I had to question if we used either to the best of our ability. At one point we sat on the train and came to the same stops 3 different times....All Aboard!!

Disney Water Ride

Last but not least I'd make sure that we reserved our times for the FastPass before we even arrived at the park. I love the fact that Disney makes it fair and provides all their guest with speed passes but what I failed to realize was that you had to reserve your time on each ride in order to use it! The lines were so long it made it very difficult to get on too many. You also have the option of downloading the My Disney Experience app on your mobile and being able to  reserve rides and make changes on the go. You live and you learn right!

Thanks for allowing me to share with you my Things I wish I would have considered before my weekend getaway to Disney World. While my family and I enjoyed the most magical experience I hope reading my list will help you and your family better enjoy your time spent there and create lasting memories.
